TRAGEDY EVOKES HOLIDAY SADNESS

TRAGEDY EVOKES

HOLIDAY SADNESS

At a time when most of us are preparing for a Christmas celebration surrounded by loved ones, a tragedy occurred in Laurens, with the son of a family charged in the shooting deaths of his parents. Original reporting and photographs appear in this week’s Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal. On the editorial page, learn about the questions posed by Dr. Gerald Benjamin’s presentation, “County Manager v. County Executive.” And in theAllOTSEGO.life section, catch up with the Hayen family of Tilley Avenue, Oneonta, which last year decorated their house with more holiday lights than Clark Griswold accomplished in the 1989 movie, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” This and more in this week’s editions, on newsstands across Otsego County this afternoon.

In today's weekly report, "Morning Edition," on WAMC, Northeast Public Radio, Jim Kevlin, editor/publisher of www.AllOTSEGO.com (and Hometown Oneonta & the Freeman’s Journal), reported on John and Sue Hayen's 25,3000 lightbulb Christmas display at their Tillie Avenue home in Oneonta, 300 more lightbulbs than Clark Griswold, the Chevy Chase character, lit in the 1989 "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."  It's taken the Hayens 26 years to beat Griswold's record, and there's much excitement this season on Oneonta's west end as a result.
