Oneonta Graduates Lauded For Care & Compassion

OHS Class of ’18 Lauded

For Care & Compassion

Leroy Williams, Jr. embraces one of his teachers, Kelly Tavarone, as the Oneonta High School Class of 2018 exits the auditorium following the 149th annual Commencement at the high school’s Belden Auditorium at this afternoon. The graduates, lauded by Principal Tom Brindley, right,  for their caring and compassionate nature, had an unheard of number fights during the school year: zero. “This is a group that cares about each other, looks out for each other and cheer each other on,” Brindley remarked. “(They) are a friendly smile on a bad day. What you do does not compare to who you are.” It was also announced that Brindley is being promoted to assistant superintendent, a new position.   “I consider it a privilege to graduate with you.” he said. Brindley’s successor will be his assistant principal, Anne Wolstenholme. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com

Dozens March To Protest Seizing Children At Border

Dozens March To Protest

Seizing Children At Border

Almost 100 Cooperstown folks participated in a vigil this evening in front of Cooperstown Baptist Church on Elm Street in protest to the separation of children, perhaps as many as 2,000, from families attempting to cross the Southern border from Mexico.  Participating pastors, at right, included, from right, the Rev. Joe Perdue, Cooperstown Baptist, who hosted the gathering; the Rev. Elsie Rhodes, First Presbyterian; the Rev. Tom LeBeau, Cooperstown Methodist; Randy Velez, a Roman Catholic deacon, and the Rev. Ladonna Clark, who is associated with the Presbyterian Church.  In sequence, the pastors read an “Open Letter to Donald Trump” authored by a Unitarian Universalist minister in Wisconsin, the Rev. Amy Petrie Shaw.  In part, it said, “There must never again be internment camps, concentration camps or forced detention camps by any other name on American soil or under American control.”  While unable to attend, the Revs. Kyle Grennen, Grace Episcopal, Springfield Center, and Sharon Rankins-Burd, Fly Creek and Schuyler Lake Methodist churches, also signed the document.  The gathering then marched to First Presbyterian, where a worship service followed.  Some attendees contributed packages of diapers intended for the youngsters taken from their families.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
