Tammy Christman, an employee at Hospice, gives tours during the open house.

ONEONTA– With new offices, grief counseling, new nurses and early intervention, after just one year at Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care, Dan Ayres is already looking to steer the at-home care provider toward new heights.

“We currently serve roughly 120 patients across Otsego, Delaware and Schoharie counties, but really, we’d like to reach at least 130 to 140 patients,” said Ayres.

Succeeding 25 year president and CEO Lola Rathbone, Ayres took over the position in Jan. 2017. Ayres first order of business was to create one central location for Catskill Area Hospice to operate out of.

Community Embraces

New Upstate Bar, Grill

Joe Vezza’s new Upstate Bar & Grill, on Route 28 on Cooperstown’s south end, was even more packed than usual Saturday evening, as – with the summer season over – the new establishment hosted a community open house.  Hundreds watched a variety of football games and savored a buffet with samples of appetizers and entrees – from ribs to a whole pig – from the newly released menu. Inset photo,  bartenders Sam Borgstrom, Jennifer Putnam and Maria Senk serve from 26 taps of local, state, national and even a few international beers.  In addition to regular offerings, Upstate is offering banquet space for private parties.  (Tara Barnwell/AllOTSEGO.com)
