ONEONTA – State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, is teaching where he once learned.

The senator, who received his degree from Hartwick College in 1973 and an honorary doctor of laws degree in 1999, has returned to his alma mater this semester as an adjunct professor of political science.

Seward is teaching “New York State Politics & Policy” for 20 students, drawing on three decades of experience in the state Senate.  Prior to that, he served as an aide to state representatives, and was the youngest chairman of the county Republican Committee.

When college President Margaret Drugovich invited him to teach a course, “I couldn’t say yes fast enough,” said Seward.  He is also keeping office hours on campus once a week.

Insure Crops Brewers Need,

Senator Schumer Says Here

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is introduced at Hartwick College today by Dr. Michael Tannenbaum, provost & vice president of academic affairs.

ONEONTA – At Hartwick College’s Center for Craft Food & Beverage, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, today announced he is asking the USDA to approve a specialized crop insurance to protect farmers growing crops for the state’s expanding farm breweries.

“It is imperative that the USDA takes the necessary steps towards offering the malt barley endorsement (MBE) throughout these (44 Upstate) counties to provide further protection for our growers while continuing to promote the businesses that rely on this important crop,” Schumer said in a letter to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue that was released here today.
