Innovative Method Fills City Potholes

Modified Truck Fills City Potholes

David Parker is seen driving “The Pothole Killer,” a truck modified with a boom-arm that spreads a mixture of oil and stone over potholes. Parker drove the truck to Oneonta from the company’s main office in Fairless Hills, PA. to help city workers fill in potholes in Oneonta’s 6th Ward. According to city employee Matt Harper, the mixture is supposed to last 2-5 years before being replaced. The modified truck makes the job much quicker, taking only five minutes to fill in most potholes. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)

‘Friendship Bench’ Is Dedicated To CCS Teacher Aide Carol Krisch

‘Friendship Bench’ Is Dedicated

To CCS Teacher Aide Carol Krisch


A bench inscribed with “Come Sit, Make A Friend Or Two,” was dedicated this afternoon  at Cooperstown Elementary School in memory of Carol Ann Krisch, who suggested the idea to guidance counselor Christine McBrearty Hulse, lower left.  Krisch, a teacher aide  and monitor at the school for 16 years, passed away suddenly on Sept. 8, 2016, at her home in Fork Shop.  Recalling her childhood to McBrearty Hulse, the elementary school mainstay advised that if a child was having trouble making friends, he or she could sit on the bench and other children would offer their friendship.    The whole student body gathered in the playground behind the school to hear the dedication, that included comments by retired teacher Dibble and Bud Lippitt, phys-ed teacher and a relative.  Other relatives attending, lower right, included, from right, Tom and Kathy Redding, her sister and brother-in-law; cousin Barbara Kubis, Tommy Redding and his fiance, Dayna Vibbard, and baby Maddyn, 18 months, Krisch’s great-niece.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

E. Donnall Thomas Prize Awarded To Liver Researcher From Thailand

E. Donnall Thomas Prize Awarded

To Liver Researcher From Thailand

Karn Wijarnpreecha, MD, accepts the 2018 E. Donnall Thomas Research Day Outstanding Research Presentation Award from Anne M. Gadomski,  director, Research Institute.

COOPERSTOWN – Dr. Karn Wijarnpreecha, who is researching liver disease, has been awarded the E. Donnall Thomas Outstanding Research Day Presentation Award, named in honor the former Bassett physician who won the Nobel Prize.

Wijarnpreecha, who is completing his medical training at Bassett, is investigating possible links between nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease, scarring of the liver and low muscle mass, and whether any link is consistent across ethnicities.  If so, “interventions to strengthen muscle mass may reduce the burden of NAFLD and advanced fibrosis,” the researcher said.
