Inside, Outside The Otesaga,

Roger Stone Stirs Reactions

Veteran Republican consultant Roger Stone, top photo, left, shares insights with, from right, Otsego County Republican chairman Vince Casale, Lynne Krogh and Sheriff Richard J. Devlin Jr. last evening at the annual county Republican Dinner at The Otesaga.  Stone, who has recently published “The Making of The American President 2016,” said the Netflix movie based on the book has caused a spike in sales.  Controversial dating back to his days as an operative for President Richard M. Nixon, as well as his friendship with President Trump, Stone’s appearance also stirred a protest across Lake Street from the resort hotel, led by Maguire Benton, president of the Otsego County Young Democrats, in photo at left.  With him are Toni McGrath, right, and Anita Pratt, both of Delmar, where they belong to a “huddle,” a group seeking to apply lessons learned at the Women’s March in Washington in January.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Pride Community Holds Vigil

Pride Community Holds

Vigil For Trans Lives

Above: Dr. Carolyn Wolf-Gould, head of the Gender Wellness Center in Oneonta, leans her head against that of Dakota Davis, Oneonta, during a candle lit vigil at First United Methodist Church in Oneontathis evening. The vigil was held in memory of Kendra Adams, a trans woman who was found murdered at a construction site in Ithaca on June 13th. “Her family has asked that she not be remembered as a person murdered, but remember her as the girl who accepted everyone.” said event organizer Elayne Mosher Campoli, right, with daughter Amelia. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 13 trans women of color murdered in the U.S. The names of the victims and the circumstances of their deaths were read aloud before candles were lit in their memory. Rev. Rebecca Drebert of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Bainbridge, a trans woman herself, spoke on the importance of rejecting messages of hate and violence and believing love will win out. “I reject the idea that this type of violence is part of God’s plan.” she said, “The relationship that God wants with us is with our deepest, truest identity. We have all been wounded, and we need healing.” Other speakers included Rev. Teressa Sivers of First United Methodist in Oneonta,  Council member Michelle Osterhoudt, Oneonta, 10th grader Sadie Lincoln, Laurens, who read a piece she wrote called ’15 Lessons I Learned Before 15′, and musical performance by Leah Echstein, Oneonta, and others.

Basset Cancer Institute Celebrates 300 Survivors

Basset Cancer Institute

Celebrates 300 Survivors

John Parks Sr. and Wanetta Daniels, both cancer survivors, were among the more than 300 individuals who came together from throughout central New York for a Cancer Survivor’s Day Celebration put on by the Bassett Cancer Institute June 4 at The Otesaga in Cooperstown. The annual event  was a sellout again as cancer survivors and their guests joined in the celebration of survivorship with the cancer treatment team and other staff who help patients navigate the emotional and physical challenges a cancer diagnosis entails. The Bassett Cancer Institute offers a nationally accredited, multidisciplinary team approach to cancer care. Since nearly all forms of cancer call for more than one type of therapy, Bassett’s medical, radiation and surgical oncologists work together as an even larger team focused on the needs of individual patients.
