COOPERSTOWN – It was a lesson in the right attitude.
County Judge John Lambert, honored as the latest recipient of the Clark Sports Center’s Fetterman Award today at an Otesaga luncheon, was able to relate a first-hand story about Patrick Fetterman, a fabled director of the Clark Gym.
It was at a Biddy Basketball Tournament in St. Johnsville more than three decades ago. Lambert was in sixth grade; Fetterman was coaching, when one of the Cooperstown players made everyone’s concern explicit: “They’re cheating with the clock,” he said.
EDMESTON – Pathfinder Village celebrated the longevity of 16 employees – 280 years combined – at a luncheon Tuesday at The Otesaga.

Those celebrating 30-year anniversaries included Pathfinder School Teacher Nancy Kelly, Direct Support Professional Cindy Holbert, and Assistant Director of Enrichment Services Charleen Orendorff.
