In Oneonta, the rain broke just in time for the Memorial Day parade and service in Neahwa Park this morning. Here, Color Guard members Gary Ballard, Gary Walters, and Wayne Gregory, all of Oneonta, and Chris Proctor and Harry Martin, both of Otego, await the start of the service. At right, Cliff Eaglefeathers, Bloomville, who served in the Army from 1967-69, wore his headdress as he marched in the parade to honor his Native American heritage. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
