From the Publisher's Desk: There are many new ways to connect with us

Some of you may trek out to your Daily Star tube early in the morning and start your day reading your local newspaper cover-to-cover over a cup of coffee.

Some of you may first turn to the sports section, the classified section or start the crossword puzzle. And still others head to their computer and read the news of the day online.

Whatever your preference, there is an avenue for everyone, the young and young at heart.

If you are a faithful reader of my column, you must know my feelings about how important your input is about The Daily Star products. We have recently launched some features that I am excited to introduce, continuing my commitment to have the most interaction possible.

The recently launched Weekly Star is getting rave reviews. If you have not seen a copy, it is available free at most outlets that sell The Daily Star.

One of my favorite features is a two-page center-spread that often includes community-submitted photos. From ribbon-cuttings to Little League games, benefit dinners to family reunions, proms and galas and festivals, all your great photos are wanted.

I invite you to send us your shots for inclusion to with the subject: The Weekly Star, or mail it to The Weekly Star, attn: photo spread, P.O. Box 250, Oneonta, NY 13820. Along with the photo, send a caption along with your contact information.

The opportunity to see your family or friends in print is something special, and we welcome your submissions. We also post photo galleries online under our multimedia section and are constantly looking for great photos to display. Keep them coming!

On Friday, The Daily Star, with partner Sweet Home Productions, will launch the unique local community comic strip, "The Sweet Home Adventures of Scoop," in The Weekly Star.

Local News -
  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
