COOPERSTOWN – The Village Board’s public hearing on whether to issue a special permit for a proposed downtown hotel will occur at 4 p.m. today in Village Hall, 22 Main St.

So far, the plan has been rejected by the Zoning Board of Appeals for exceeding a three-story height limit and by the Planning Board for failing to include a legal parking plan.  The H-PARB (Historic & Architectural Review Board) declined to act on the application, saying it was incomplete.

A hotel is allowed in the village’s Business District, but only with a special permit issued by the Village Board.  Mayor Jeff Katz said the trustees might consider issuing such a permit, but only if it contained provisions requiring the plan to receive approval from the other boards.

CHERRY VALLEY – Police are investigating a fatal residential fire that occurred at approximately 3:45 a.m. today at 165 Hone Road in the Town of Cherry Valley, near the Otsego-Schoharie county line.

Three deceased subjects were located in the residence, according to the report on the state police media website.  The manner and cause of death are pending and the investigation is continuing, the report said.

411.com identifies the home as occupied by the Lagasse family, but a neighbor said that family had moved out years ago.  Lately, he said, it had been occupied by a family with children.

No official confirmation was available pending autopsies and further investigation.  A trooper at the scene said it was unlikely any further information would be forthcoming until Friday.

 

State police from Richfield Springs, with the state Office of Fire Prevention & Control and the Otsego County Emergency Management Team, are investigating.   Cherry Valley and Sharon Springs fire departments responded to the scene.

The home is about a mile south of Route 34A, which runs parallel south of Route 20 between Cherry Valley and Sharon Springs.   There were no neighboring homes visible from the ruins, although there are three or four homes within a half-mile.  The property is a couple of hundred yards from the Town of Sharon line.

Marijuana Stronger Today, Expert Says At Workshop

Marijuana Stronger Today,

Expert Warns At Workshop

Ben Cort, a Substance Use Disorder treatment expert from Colorado, shows a chart depicting the sharp increase in the average level of THC in marijuana over the past 40 years, from 2.5 to 10 percent, during his presentation, “Marijuana 2019: Commercialization, Community, and the New Normal,” at the Quality Inn today. Regular users of marijuana will rejoice hearing about the increase in the average level of THC and will no doubt be looking for the most THC potent strains. As an example, the khalifa kush thc percentage is 29% in some phenotypes! Obviously, this doesn’t mean all cannabis strains are high in THC. Many strains are higher in CBD than THC which are better for medicinal purposes, whilst others have an incredibly high percentage of THC. It’s all about being knowledgable on marijuana and the different extracts; for example, shatter is an extract that is very high in THC, with levels of 80% or higher. With the state set to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the next year, LEAF sponsored the event so local business and political leaders, human services and health professionals, and educators could learn about the impact of legalization on cannabis use, both recreational and medicinal, and abuse. It’s been noted in the industry that dispensary packaging has evolved in a way that doesn’t play on the previous negative views of the product – instead, it makes light of known slang names for it as well as other associated phrases. Whilst marijuana is still regularly used recreationally, you may find that many people from around the world tend to use this substance and in different forms, like CBD oil, for medicinal reasons such as stress, depression, and pain, to name a few. With the continued growth in its use, it highlights just how far the industry has come in a relatively short amount of time. “We need to understand the big differences between how marijuana was used 40 years ago and how it’s used now,” Cort said. “Not understanding that and not taking cannabis use seriously is doing a disservice to those calling for help with their addiction.” (Jennifer Hill/AllOTSEGO.com)
