HOMETOWN ONEONTA,

FREEMAN’S JOURNAL

ON NEWSSTANDS TODAY

In Hometown Oneonta, a $225,000 DRI grant was awarded last week for a “transformative” project downtown. Beyond that, nobody – even the developer – seems to know what the plan is. In The Freeman’s Journal, read about 6-foot-8 John Owens, a member of a dynasty of CCS athletes who helped take the Hawkeyes to the state champion Final Four this weekend in Binghamton. On AllOTSEGO.com, Dwight and Aileen Pier tell the story of their success on Liquor Deport’s 20th anniversary on Southside, and fifth anniversary in its mega-store.  All this and more, on newsstands today.

Brides Flout Stain Risks To Enjoy Tempting BBQ

BONUS STORY FROM HOMETOWN

ONEONTA & FREEMAN’S JOURNAL

Brides Flout Stain Risks

To Enjoy Tempting BBQ

By LIBBY CUDMORE • HOMETOWN ONEONTA & The Freeman’s Journal

Nikki Bower knows sometimes good food can be messy. She and husband Sean were early local adopters of a growing barbeque wedding trend when they married in 2016.

Editor’s Note:  This article appeared in the Thursday-Friday, Jan. 10-11 print editions in anticipation of yesterday’s 2019 Wedding Expo at Foothills.  For photos of the event, see this week’s print editions, on newsstands Wednesday afternoon.

ONEONTA – Nikki Bower reminds you to always eat barbeque with care.“I’m not a girly-girl, so wearing a wedding dress all day was hard for me,” she joked. “I was trying to eat responsibly, but I got barbeque sauce all down the front of my dress!”

Nikki and her husband Sean, married June 25, 2016, were on the cutting edge of the latest in wedding trends –  forgoing filet mignon and lobster tails for some good old-fashioned barbeque.

Building Superintendent Vaughn Clark scrapes “The Cooperstown Crier” off the signboard in front of 21 Railroad Ave., Cooperstown, as the newspaper ended its presence in the village at the end of August. The Crier laid off its editor, Greg Klein, two weeks ago and allowed the lease for its village office to expire at the end of last month.  To subscribe to the remaining in-village newspaper, The Freeman’s Journal, locally owned and operated in Cooperstown since 1808, click here, or call Larissa at 607-547-6103.
