Local java purveyors eye Starbucks plans

Local java purveyors eye Starbucks plans

Ready or not, a new Starbucks is about to be unleashed in Oneonta in summer 2022. While many may celebrate the brand-name lattes and cappuccinos, some locally owned coffee shops are concerned about the effect this will have on their small businesses.

The Starbucks rises on Oneonta’s south side — Route 23 near Buffalo Wild Wings — an area already congested with traffic and large businesses such as WalMart, Southside Mall, and a variety of grocery stores.

Plans for the new coffee house include a drive-through, which in other locations often sees long lines of cars filled with eager coffee seekers hoping to get their caffeine fix.

Otsego Land Trust

The Husband and I are blessed with a beautiful property in Schuyler Lake. We decided several years ago it was worth preserving, and opted to get a conservation easement on our 22 acres through the Otsego Land Trust (OLT). We have our own land to explore and enjoy, but the Land Trust has open spaces available for everyone.

The Fly Creek Cider Mill
You love flowers blooming and you’ve had a blooming onion, now get ready for a blooming apple.
This delicious treat is one of the many snacks to be had at the Fly Creek Cider Mill and it is a great way to curb your hunger with a healthy treat. It’s an apple cut into slices in a bowl with warm caramel, nuts and a cherry. A tasty treat for before or after you walk around the mill, pick out something from the shop (it’s huge!) visit and feed the geese, or try out the many games available for the children.

Cooperstown Diner
If you blink while driving down Main Street Cooperstown, you may miss The Cooperstown Diner! The diner is a quaint, tiny, fantastic gem!

You must start with the mac ’n cheese triangles. These perfectly fried little triangles of cheese are delicious. They also have the biggest burgers I have ever been served!

Get the platter with curly fries and you won’t eat for days after. The tuna melts are grilled to perfection and go well with huge fried onion rings.

Did I mention they serve breakfast all day long?

I can’t find anything not to love about the diner, make it part of your Cooperstown experience.

Help wanted: Businesses struggle to find workers

Businesses struggle to find workers

By MICHAEL FORSTER ROTHBART • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Help wanted signs can be seen throughout Otsego County, including this one at Kwik Fill in Oneonta. (Michael Forster Rothbart/AllOTSEGO.com)

ONEONTA — A blue and white sign stands in the grass at the entrance to Southside Mall in the town of Oneonta: “JOBS! Cooperstown All-Star Village APPLY NOW.” In either direction, along the mile-long commercial strip from Wal-Mart to Home Depot, at least eight stores advertise available positions.
Outside Home Depot, in the afternoon Monday, May 17, two employees in masks help an older customer with curbside pickup, loading 2×4 boards over the passenger seat into his Buick sedan. The store has more than 70 employees and is now hiring people for eight positions, mostly part-time.

“We’re short six people, now that the college students just left,” said the older employee, who declined to be identified.
