On Thursday’s “Morning Headlines” on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, Jim Kevlin, editor/ publisher of www.AllOTSEGO.com (and Hometown Oneonta & the Freeman’s Journal), reported how last Monday’s crash of an XNG truck was the first “incident” since one 14 months ago in Schuyler Lake, after which the company shifted its “virtual pipeline” to the wider, better built Route 8 on the other side of Unadilla Creek.

Rt. 205 Resident Testifies

To Life On XNG Roadway

Joanne Gardner, who lives on Route 205 in Hartwick, testifies to potential hazards caused by the dozens of XNG trucks that pass her house daily. She was one of several people who spoke at the Aug. 1 monthly meeting of the Otsego County Board of Representatives after an XNG truck toppled near Schuyler Lake a couple of weeks before.

DISTRICT 6 DEBATE (HARTWICK, MILFORD, NEW LISBON)

Ryan: Move XNG Off 2-Lanes;

Kennedy: Attend 11/16 Briefing

With recent concerns about the XNG trucks on Route 205 following an accident in September, county Rep. Meg Kennedy, R-Hartwick/Milford/New Lisbon, and her Democratic challenger, Pat Ryan, fielded a question from Deb Taylor, county tourism director, on the subject at tonight’s District 5 county board debate at the Hartwick Community Center in the hamlet.  “The only thing we could do, at the county, is re-route them to the main highway,” said Ryan. Meanwhile, Kennedy pointed out that both the Attorney General and the State DOT were taking comments on the routes, and encouraged citizens to attend an informational meeting at 6 p.m. on Nov. 16 at the Milford Central School. “Our EMTs participated in training and were invaluable when the truck turned over,” she said. “I would recommend even more training. The more we know, the better we can move forward.”  At right is Stephanie Bauer of Cooperstown, the League of Women Voters moderator.  Debates were also underway this evening in Fly Creek (District 8) and Cherry Valley (District 7).  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
