Week in Review: Pipeline hearing held; county gets Manor petition

This weekend feature offers a recap of the week’s top local stories:

MONDAY

Of about 10 students interviewed on the State University College at Oneonta campus Sunday, four said they favored President Barack Obama, six said they were registered to vote, with five planning to cast absentee ballots and the fifth not sure he would vote on Election Day. Several other students said they weren’t registered to vote or didn’t want to talk about politics.

In sports: Everything about this win was bigger.

From the margin of victory to the length of Mariah Ruff’s throw-ins to the sticky defense applied by Oneonta High’s tallest player, Madison Miller, the Yellowjackets left no doubt they are the best girls soccer team in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.

Unlike last year’s one-goal squeeze past Vestal in the STAC final, in which the Golden Bears probably had the better of play, OHS outplayed previously unbeaten Vestal this time en route to a 2-0 win in Saturday’s STAC championship at Lloyd F. Baker Field.

TUESDAY

Otsego and Delaware counties’ biggest dealer of oxycodone powder has been found guilty of four felonies after a trial in Otsego County Court, Cooperstown.

A jury deliberated 40 minutes before convicting Dante D. Major, 36, of Hobart, of operating as a major trafficker by selling more than $75,000 worth of drugs during a period of six months or less, a Class A-1 felony under the state “drug kingpin” law.

In sports: Retired wrestling coach and Oneonta resident Al Sosa headlines Oneonta State’s 2012 Athletics Hall of Fame class, which will be inducted at 10 a.m. Saturday at the college’s Alumni Field House.

WEDNESDAY

Advocates for keeping the

Otsego Manor as a county-owned nursing home say they have collected more than 1,000 signatures from people opposed to last month’s decision by county lawmakers to privatize the facility.
