Local talent Ryan Quinn was knocked out on NBC's The Voice but...he was saved by Christina Aguilera.  Andrew says dramatically, "It's in America's hands now."

Utica Common Councilman Edward Bucciero joins us to talk about the dismissal of four members of the Harbor Point Board in Utica.  Bucciero says that he was sent a letter with no prior notice.  He says that he is still a supporter of the project.  He says that he wanted to create more accessibility downtown and he believes that the City's focus may be slightly different.  When addressing the environmental and toxicity concerns regarding the land at Harbor Point, Bucciero says that he believes that those are being addressed.

Utica City School District School Board President and Claims Solutions' Christopher Salatino, also removed from the Harbor Point Project Board, joins us as well.  Salatino says that those removed were the founding members of the board.  He says that he was not surprised by their removal from the board.  He says that the four founding members were appointed by the previous mayor, and says that he was actually surprised that current Mayor Robert Palmieri took so long to remove them.  Both Salatino and Bucciero say they still want the project to succeed and move forward.

We talk with Dr. Steven Levine from the Sleep Center at the Mohawk Valley Health System.  He says that Keeler has "significant" sleep apnea.  During Keeler's study he did exhibit some parasomnia, whereby he sat up in the middle of the night.
