We all believe in many things. We believe the sun will rise tomorrow.
Cooperstonians lined up for a couple of notable reasons during the month of January 1940 — to help and to collect.
Let’s take a walk through Mitch McConnell’s graveyard. The graveyard is his desk in the Senate where nearly 400 bills, passed by the Democratically controlled House of Representatives, go to die. These commonsense bills never reach the 100 senators for a vote. Mitch strangles them at birth.
“Find the cost of freedom,” wrote Stephen Stills in 1970 upon visiting a Civil War site. Those who fought and died to defend our freedoms are indeed “buried in the ground” as Stills and company sang.
ALBANY — A spike in anti-Semitic attacks. More paperwork from changes to evidence rules. New job impacts flowing from alterations to the bail law.
True, the calendar may have read 1930 and there was a Great Depression to deal with, but you could hardly notice much about the latter, locally, at the turn of the new year.
At the intersection of years, the ending of one and beginning of another, we often reflect on the year past and make plans for the year to come. Similarly to birthdays, the passing of another time-based event, we recognize that the passing of time has an inescapable effect upon us.
Recognizing the need to compete with social media, The Daily Star created “Sound Off” — a place where one can find meaningful anonymous commentary mixed in with mean-spirited personal attacks based upon statements true and false. While I am not a big fan of this type of thing, I will confess…
“In the bleak mid-winter” of Christina Rossetti’s 1872 poem, Salvation Army bells and tinnitus warring for headspace, I am haunted by those who did not get to see December cast its chill upon the northern latitudes once more.
In this one-party town, zip code for a state government with the biggest budget this side of the Mississippi River, the Democrats have every reason to strut around with fresh swagger.
With the close of another year upon us, it is always interesting to look in the rear-view mirror and pay tribute to those who have left us. This year we said goodbye to sports figures, politicians, folk heroes, writers and more. But for some reason, maybe because we feel we know them (from a…
Over many years, it has been my observation that many Americans celebrate Christmas for reasons of nostalgia rather than reality. Let me explain this observation and possibly change our view of Christmas.
The official kickoff to my favorite season happened the weekend of Dec. 7 and 8 with the excitement of the downtown festivities that transformed the city of Oneonta with holiday spirit.
The Daily Star’s recent op-ed was right to question Cuomo’s energy plan. However, missing from that op-ed and from Joe Mahoney’s article regarding National Grid’s moratorium on gas hookups on Long Island, was any detailed analysis of what is happening.
Driving from Delhi to Roscoe a few years ago to see the Christmas tree from Oneonta at Rockefeller Center, we passed small houses in which people had put up one string of lights. One house had all red. Another had all blue. At Rockefeller Center, there were green and red and blue and white, …
We recently celebrated a D’Imperio family tradition on Thanksgiving Eve. We call it our “Cousins Christmas Party.” We hold this little party at our house and all of the smaller cousins in the family are invited for a night of surprises and fun. The focus is manly on the littlest ones, as a w…
A fire changed a streetscape. Indoor golf was new in town. And outdoor Christmas lighting became a contest.
Toward the end of the Otsego County Board of Representatives meeting Wednesday, Dec. 4, the tributes starting flowing.
Richard Wells, president of the Police Conference of New York, has read every word of the New York Health Act. That is the legislation that would create a single-payer, government-run health care system that would cover all New Yorkers.
If you’ve ever moved before, say from an apartment to a new home, you know how much planning there is for the move and expansion.
Anyone who watched just an hour of Marie Yovanovitch’s testimony during the televised impeachment hearings was treated to a taste of class, wisdom and spunk — and a genuine profile in courage.
New York had its first experience with the early voting option this month, with county boards of election required to allow balloting for nine days in advance of Election Day.
At the radio station where I work, we receive dozens of news releases, press updates, public service announcements and community notices each week. I am sure this newspaper gets the same, or even more. Most of them run toward the mundane, everyday workings of a small community. Meetings are …
The arts as a business appeared to be on the rise. Safety at the city’s leading employer was a concern. There was a first coffee shop in Oneonta. And the city stepped up its approach for the upcoming holidays.
Try saving some money by telling your cable/broadband provider you plan to eliminate the television service and stream over the internet and the response will likely be that you are going to have to pay more for internet access.
