Parkland Dominates Local Conversations

Parkland Dominates

Local Conversations

Cooperstown’s Bill Crankshaw, Oneonta’s Joe Yelich and four other local school superintendents gathered to discuss the Parkland shootings, and found they agreed with the idea of hiring school-resource officers to protect local pupils; Senator Seward and Sheriff Devlin appear to be aboard, too. Meanwhile, it seems fear of school shootings will play a role in this fall’s sheriff’s race, plus letters on the topic dominated our editorial pages. All this and more in this week’s Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal, on newsstands this afternoon.

Are Compressed-Gas Trucks

Anything To Worry About?

If you’ve seen trucks marked “XNG, Extra Natural Gas,” going up and down your road in recent weeks, it may be travelling between a well in the fracking district in Northeastern Pennsylvania and a processing plant in Little Falls. Anti-fracking activists are concerned what they call “bomb trucks” may represent a danger to towns and drivers along the route through Otsego County. Read this week’s exclusive report in Hometown Oneonta & The Freeman’s Journal, on newsstands this afternoon.  Also, from the Hall of Fame Classic to the General Clinton Canoe Regatta, there are a ton of activities this weekend.  Let our Happenin’ Otsego calendar help you plan what to do.
