All Treats, No Tricks

At Mall-O-Ween

Ghouls, ghosts, princesses, dinosaurs, witches and more filled the Southside Mall this afternoon as youngsters and their families enjoyed indoor trick-or-treating as part of the annual Mall-O-Ween event.

The Center Will Hold – If You Vote Nov. 6

EDITORIAL FROM THIS WEEK’S

FREEMAN’S, HOMETOWN ONEONTA

The Center Will Hold

– If You Vote Nov. 6

Editor’s Note:  Below is the introduction that set the stage for this week’s editorials:  Endorsing Democrats Andrew Cuomo, Bill Magee and Chad McEvoy, and Republicans John Faso, Jim Seward and Richard Devlin in the Nov. 6 election.  Reasons for our endorsements are detailed in this week’s Hometown Oneonta & Freeman’s Journal, available on newsstands today. Click here and read the full report that informed the introduction below, “The Hidden Tribes of America,” which finds, despite the surface divisiveness we hear around us, most of us are people of good will, willing to listen and to seek a middle way, the basis for our democracy at its most successful.

As voters – in Otsego County, the 19th Congressional District and nationally – struggle to make the right decision in the Tuesday, Nov. 6, midterm elections, a study, “The Hidden Tribes of America,” surfaces with a conclusion that has been widely commented on nationally:

“A majority of Americans (61 percent), whom we’ve called the ‘Exhausted Majority,’ are fed up by Americans’ polarization. They know we have more in common than that which divides us: our belief in freedom, equality and the pursuit of the American Dream. They share a deep sense of gratitude that they are citizens of the United States. They want us to move past our differences.”

It the past two years, those of us with that sensibility have been screamed at by two sides that, it turns out, are fringes. On the left, “Progressive Activists,” according to the study, are a mere 8 percent of the citizenry; on the right, “Devoted Conservatives” are only 6 percent.

‘Summer Dreams’ To Serve Tourists – And Rest Of Us

‘Summer Dreams’

To Serve Tourists

– And Rest Of Us

A new “Summer Dreams” publication, aimed at serving Otsego County’s summer visitors and the rest of us who partake of the county’s summer offerings, will appear in this week’s Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal.  New editions will appear weekly through Labor Day.

A new weekly publication, “Summer Dreams,” aimed at highlighting Greater Cooperstown and Oneonta’s summer offerings, will appear in this week’s editions of Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal.

In addition to reaching 13,000 households in our regular weekly distribution, an additional 2,000 copies are being printed and made available to tourists and youth-baseball-park participants.  The 13,000 distribution is already the largest print footprint in the county, and this will be enhanced to 15,000, according to Editor/Publisher Jim Kevlin.

Beginning today, the new publication will also be posted on www.allotsego.com, where it will be accessible to 40,000 weekly visitors, and promoted on the allotsego Facebook page, where more than 20,000 visitors participate weekly.

“Information about happenings in Otsego County will be useful, of course, to all of us looking to have some fun.  But ‘Summer Dreams’ is also a powerful vehicle for advertisers looking to connect with customers and potential new customers,” Kevlin said.

If you are interested in advertising in “Summer Dreams”, call 607-547-6103 and ask for Tara Barnwell or Thom Rhodes, or e-mail them at tarab@allotsego.com or thomr@allotsego.com.
