Emotions Run High

At Kinderhook Rally

Cassidy A. Maze of New Lebanon, top photo, leads 1,000 people in ’60s-style protest songs at a rally this afternoon  in front of the Kinderhook office of U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-19, whose district includes Otsego County. Lower photo, Trump supporter Andrew Monell stirs taunts and fist-shaking when he drove his motorcycle, blaring “God Bless The U.S.A.” and other patriotic ballads, into the edge of the crowd. Organized by Indivisible CD-19, the rally’s original goal, according to organizer Pam Kline of Livingston, was to convince the newly elected Faso to hold Town Hall meetings, like the ones that elicited angry crowds across the U.S. this week. However, speakers – they included retired Bassett OB-GYN Mark Heller – spoke on a range of issues, from Trump’s seeming tilt toward Russia, to the easing of environmental regulation and Climate Change, continued funding for women’s health, and ensuring changes in the Affordable Care Act don’t deny citizens medical care. The rally began at 2, and after 90 minutes of speeches, chants and song, about 200 protesters walked two blocks to Faso’s house; the congressman didn’t appear to be home, and the crowd dispersed without incident. There were about a half-dozen Otsego County attendees; the thinking was a smaller rally in Delhi at noon (see below) drew away protesters from Oneonta and Cooperstown.   While the rally was peacful, speakers had been told an individual with a pistol was in the crowd, and police were present throughout.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Classics Inside Southside Mall

Glen Hotaling, Oneonta, stands next to his 1930 Ford Model A, on display at The Southside Mall as part of a classic car show organized by Tom and Doug’s Cruise-In. The car, which has the original body on it, was bought from a a man in Cooperstown who had refurbished it. Hotaling added some minor chrome work to the engine and rear-view mirrors, but other than that, it is all original parts. “(This event) draws a lot of people into the mall.” said Hotaling, “People love seeing the old cars. This is the type of event Oneonta needs.” The cars will be on display until March 12. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Spring Arrives …

A Month Early

Amairh Morrison, makes bubbles for her siblings Aaliyah and Isaiah to chase in Neahwa Park this afternoon. One would have thought it was a beautiful April day as unseasonably warm temperatures pushed temperatures near 70 degrees. The weather did not go unnoticed as droves of people headed out into the sunshine to play sports, ride bikes, sunbathe or just enjoy the day with a walk. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
