Week in Review: Amphenol to move plant

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

MONDAY

Neither rain nor cold may stop a dedicated angler from wetting a line today, the first day of trout fishing season.

Brad Decker, assistant manager of Sportsman Adventures in Oneonta, said the store is stocked with worms, night crawlers and salted and live minnows, and he has heard from anglers who are excited about wetting their lines. Rivers and creeks aren’t frozen, he said, and the lure of the catch beckons.

“It’s just excitement all the way around,’’ he said. “We’re stocked — we’re ready to go.’’

In sports: Mike Vaglica scored three goals, but Hartwick College lost its Empire 8 Conference men’s lacrosse opener, 12-7, at St. John Fisher on Saturday.

TUESDAY

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is urging federal regulators to hold off on approving the controversial Constitution Pipeline project until all parcels along the 122-mile stretch are studied for its potential effects on waterways.

In sports: The selections of Oneonta High’s Mariah Ruff and Franklin’s Jordan Beers as Section Four’s Class B and D players of the year by the Basketball Coaches Association of New York had to fall into the absolutely expected category.

BCANY recently announced its Section Four girls basketball awards, which included OHS’ Matt Miller and Franklin’s Mike Dutcher earning Class B and D coach of the year honors.

WEDNESDAY

After suffering devastating floods twice in seven years, the Amphenol Aerospace factory, employing approximately 1,000 workers, will move into a new plant on higher ground in 13 months, officials said Tuesday.

Also: The proposed student apartment complex on Blodgett Drive would be a boon to Oneonta, Mayor Dick Miller said Tuesday in a memorandum to the Common Council that also addressed economic, housing and other goals for the city.
