Otsego Manor Must Be ‘Safety Net For Least Able, Sickest’

T

he quandary that is Otsego Manor has three “stakeholders,” if you will. One is the taxpayer; the county nursing home should be run efficiently. Two is the county’s “least able and sickest” – hold that thought. And third is Manor employees. Let’s turn that list around. The primary role of Otsego Manor is to be “a safety net for the least able and sickest.” Taxpayers and unionized employees are important, sure, but are tied at a somewhat distant second. • “Least able and sickest” is a term contained in a lease Albany County is formulating with Upstate Service Group, a private firm based in Spring Valley, Rockland County, that owns or operates 11 nursing homes across the state, as reported Jan. 5 in the Albany Times Union. The Times Union report was referenced during the public comment period at the Otsego County Board of Representatives’ February meeting on the 6th, which was again moved to Courtroom #1 to accommodate the turnout. (People were also there urging the county board to oppose the state’s new gun regulations.) It’s intriguing. The county board and county Rep. Kay Stuligross’ Manor Committee are exploring privatizing The Manor,

from the outset – pale by comparison (although we are considerably smaller). Over the decade lease, Albany County expect to save $60-80 million. One reassuring benefit is that Albany County keeps some control, conceivably to prevent another Countryside from happening there. Specifically, the subject of last week’s public comment locally was a plan devised by county Rep. John Kosmer, D-Fly Creek, which called for CSEA givebacks and another .25 points on the county’s 8 percent sales tax. Whether either could be accomplished is iffy, but most interesting was Kosmer’s analysis of the Jim Kevlin/HOMETOWN ONEONTA Otsego Manor resident Claire Cardinale, right, and Manor ad- county’s commitment going forward.

Futuristic SUNY Housing Would Worsen Flooding To the Editor: Let me begin with some background information. My family and I purchased our home on Brigham Road in the fall of 1990. We chose this location for many reasons, including limited pedestrian and vehicle traffic, city water and sewer, and proximity to SUNY Oneonta and its many resources. I have many concerns with the proposed student apartment complex including: lowered property values, increased noise from vehicle and pedestrian traffic, security/supervision and tax relief for the builder/ owner. However, my main fear is MORE WATER PROBLEMS. I contend that when this residential area was designed it was not planned thoroughly. It may be that some of the original developers were more concerned with making a “fast buck” than spending appropriate time and money to properly lay a foundation for the future of the neighborhood. Many homeowners in our area have dealt with water in their basements after heavy rains and snow melt. This fact is hard to believe, considering these homes were

built on the side of a hill. Presently, there are NO curbs or storm sewers to contain runoff water for Brigham Road, Carson Road or Farone Drive. During heavy rains and snow melt there are TWO rapidly moving streams of runoff flowing down both sides of our home. These streams can be 3-4 feet in width. Newman Development Group’s proposed runoff-collection pond for 10-12 Blodgett will only put a Band Aid on the situation, as I see it. Furthermore, there exist an open area approximately 400- by 500 feet (4+ acres) that is used by Catskill Area Hospice for parking on Farone Drive. This land was scalped for parking, and it appears that little or no provision was made for the water runoff. Was this project approved by Oneonta city engineers? The new proposed apartment complex for 225-250 parking spaces would make, in my estimation, another sizeable area of water runoff concerns. This two-acre parking lot will just promote more problems with the water table and water runoff. I urge you to go to the residents of College Terrace, Please See LETTER, A6

longer in their homes. That the county board then rejected Kosmer’s plan – three Democrats and three Republicans supported it – doesn’t mean pieces of his thinking won’t be contained in what finally happens. • As of this writing, Stuligross’ committee was about to sign a contract with a consultant to keep moving the process moving forward; the intent right now is sale, but it could be leasing or something not yet perceived. Like anything else, there are well-run county homes (like Otsego Manor) and poorly run ones, able private operators and less-able ones. Says Oneonta Democrat Stuligross of her committee – it includes Kosmer and two Republicans, Don Lindberg of Worcester and Pauline Koren of Milford: “We are convinced The Manor will continue to run as a high-quality longterm care facility.” When this is over, that’s the point. Otsego Manor isn’t just a “safety net for the least able and sickest.” It’s a high-quality facility. Some communities are ashamed of how they care for the aged and infirmed, or should be. Otsego County residents and taxpayers don’t have to be, and don’t want to be when this process is complete.

ISSUE & DEBATE

‘Huskies’ Would Help Heal CCS District To the Editor: This is a copy of a letter I sent over the weekend to CCS Superintendent of Schools C.J. Hebert: I am contacting you regarding the name of the Cooperstown sports teams being changed from the current “Redskins.” In addition to the name “Redskins,” our school also has another team name and mascot associated with it. The residents of Hartwick voted 192 yes to 16 no; “RESOLVED that the Commissioner of Education issue an order annexing the Union Free School District No. 4, Town of Hartwick, Otsego County, to the Cooperstown Central School District No. 1, Towns of Hartwick, Otsego, and Middlefield, Otsego County, order to take effect July 1, 1958.” The year before residents of Hartwick voted 58 yes and 8 no to contract for the education of their high school children with Cooperstown. By this vote, Cooperstown in effect annexed the Hartwick High School sports name and mascot, The Husky. The Hartwick

Jim Kevlin/The Freeman’s Journal

CCS board members listen intently to inputs from some of the 150 people who attended the Wednesday, Feb. 6, meeting. From left are board president David Borgstrom and members Mary Leonard and Teresa Russo.

Huskies became part of the Cooperstown School District. I am asking that you consider replacing the socially unacceptable use of the word “Redskins” with Husky or Huskies, i.e. The Cooperstown Huskies. A Husky dog and/or person dressed in a Husky costume could be the mascot at

games. Making the change to “Huskies” would do much to heal the feelings of many who have always felt that were not accepted as equals in the school. Hartwick died on July 1, 1958, when they lost their school and community identity. The children of Hartwick have never felt fully ac-

cepted in the new school district and were generally treated as both socially and economically inferior. I grew up in Hartwick and moved away for college in 1964 and returned forty years later in 2004. My two youngest children graduated from Cooperstown in 2007 and 2010. They both felt as if they were treated differently because they came from Hartwick. Imagine, the prejudice and negative feelings against “Hartwick kids” still existed after more than 50 years. It is not often that an opportunity to make things right after so many years comes along, but you have the opportunity to go a long way towards healing the still open wounds. The recent move by the Cooperstown Little League to Hartwick coupled with using the already annexed name of the Huskies would be the most positive step taken in over 50 years. Please read my letter to the school board and consider this suggestion. Thanks for your consideration, ORLO BURCH

‘Indians’ Couldn’t Give White Feather About Name To the Editor: It appears that the renaming dilemma for the CCS baseball team is about to be resolved. And I am sure all concerned will be satisfied. “Redskins” can be considered negatively and given our times probably should be changed. However, after recently traveling through the Southwest visiting, among other sites, Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly and the many historic attractions of Albuquerque, N.M., one gets a different perspective on the issue of racial sensitivities.

Everywhere one looks there are “Indian” trading posts, “Indian” curio shops, and even “Indian” museums where “Indian” postcards are three for a dollar. Most interesting was the Gallup Cultural Center, operated by the Southwest “Indian” Foundation. There was a film showing how Hollywood has changed in depicting

Indians as only blood-thirsty savages to a more noble and human people in such films as “Dances With Wolves,” “The Last of the Mohicans” and “Avatar.” The narrator was Wes Studi, who starred in those films and easily referred to himself as “an actor and an Indian.” So while typically Eastern liberal sensitivities often lead to such social hand-wringing, I have a feeling that the vast majority of real Indians couldn’t give a white feather.

Update from Otsego County District 7 Representative Beth Rosenthal Dear District 7 residents, Greetings from Roseboom: I hope this February newsletter finds you well. Let me start by thanking you for the opportunity to serve District 7, it has been an honor and privilege. I’d like to share with you what the County has been up to since my term started: • Environment: At the first County Board meeting of 2012, we passed a resolution in support of State Senator Seward’s Home Rule bill. With this resolution we reinforced our belief in the right of towns to home rule. Later in the year, I brought the issue of fracking ‘brine’ being used on roads in other localities to the gas advisory committee and from that meeting the County adopted a policy to prohibit the use of fracking ‘brine’ on county roads for snow/ice and dust control.

New Purchases and refinances • Debt Consolidation Free Pre-Qualification • Fast Approvals • Low Rates

• Conflict Defenders office: An office we created this year, we will be utilizing monies from a State grant that will provide legal services to more county residents.

31 Pioneer Street, Cooperstown (directly next door to Stagecoach Coffee)

• Energy costs continue to be a concern and we plan to use an energy audit to pinpoint where we can save energy dollars. Solar panels on the Meadows building now provide electricity for hot water. We would like to expand the use of renewable energy for long-term cost savings. • Emergency telecommunications (ESTS): We are making progress with the new ESTS system, bandwidths have been secured; tower sites have been mapped out and requests for proposals have been sent and will be returned shortly. The project will cost approximately 8-10 million dollars and will provide needed and mandated upgrades for the Sheriff, county fire departments and our EMS volunteers. • The Manor: The County Board has taken the first steps for privatizing the Manor. This painful decision comes after months of evaluations, consultations and number crunching. As New York State pushes counties to privatize their nursing homes—through reductions in funding and crushing mandates— Otsego County finds itself in the same unenviable position of dozens of other counties in the state. The 5-6 million dollar subsidy that county residents spend every year to keep the Manor a public entity has become unsustainable. Many County roads, buildings and bridges are in need of repair or replacement and at this time we lack the funds for our infrastructure repairs. We are committed to finding nursing home care operators who will continue the legacy of excellent care county residents have come to expect from Otsego Manor. You can follow our progress by logging on to the county web site. www.ostegocounty.com

“Are we going to fight to prevent repeal of the 18th amendment, or are we going to let the wets have what they want and then try to regulate it?” Mrs. D.

I would like to thank all the District 7 residents who have contacted me with their thoughts or concerns and encourage everyone to call or email me when you have questions about what the county does—or why they do it. As the warm weather approaches, try and stop by one of the South Valley Women’s Club dinners—schedule to be announced soon—I’ll be there helping out and look forward to speaking with you. I will hold a town hall meeting to hear your concerns and answer your questions. Please join me on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, 7 PM, at the Cherry Valley Old School Café at the Cherry Valley Community Center. I look forward to seeing you!

CCS Board Slows Down Plan For ‘Redskins’ Ouster By LIBBY CUDMORE & JIM KEVLIN COOPERSTOWN

K

eepers of Old Cooperstown’s flame have taken hits in recent months. The revered noon whistle was silenced. Then paid parking was approved for Main Street. It looks, now, though, that the keepers, in the former of the CCS Alumni Association, may soon add one to the win column. CCS’ “Redskins� nickname may survive the second attempt in this century to removed it from the school’s lexicon. Following a stormy twohour public-comment ses-

sion at the Wednesday, Feb. 6, school board meeting, Superintendent of Schools C.J. Hebert announced Tuesday, Feb. 12, that the school board wants to wait before making a decision on “Redskins.� “They would like to include alumni and take additional suggestions from the community,� said Hebert in a press briefing. He and school board President David Borgstrom planned to meet Friday, Feb. 15, with Ryan Miosek and Chad Welch, representing the CCS alumni, before making a decision. The question of the Redskins nickname came to the fore again in January, when Borgstrom and Hebert announced that, as a result of

concern raised by students, the school board had asked the Student Council to come up with alternative nicknames. The Student Council reportedly suggested “Native Americans,� a PC version of the original. The most popular suggestions so far, solicited through the CCS web site, are Pathfinders, Deerslayers, Hawkeyes, Coyotes and Wolves. “More than one person,� said Hebert, has suggested “Huskies,� the Hartwick schools’ mascot that went into hibernation when those schools merged into CCS in 1958. The school board invited

public comment at the Feb. 6 meeting, and got it: Some 120 people filled the cafeteria, and perhaps as many as two dozen commented, expressing opinions on both side with vigor. Speaking for change, among others, was Joe Homburger, who said he and wife Jane also sought elimination of the “Redskins� moniker when it was last challenged in 2001. He pleaded, “Our voice was not heard then; please hear us now and move into the 21st Century.� An emotional highpoint of the evening came when CCS alumna Diane Koffer declared, “I feel the fabric

LETTER/From A4 Brigham Road, Carson Road and Blodgett Drive to talk to residents of the area to be most affected by new building. We will all be living “downstream� from the new proposed housing complex. I am NOT in favor of the proposed student apartment plan for Blodgett Drive. There may be other areas within the city better suited to such a housing complex, but I feel strongly that our neighborhood stands to unduly suffer if it is built on the site currently proposed.

The school board members who spoke expressed support for at least exploring the removal of the “Redskins� name. After all the input, Borgstrom said the school board would “take it to heart.� Foreshadowing Hebert’s announcement, he said “we need to take all this in.�

Powers Plans To Fight Law; Dems Unsure

HOMETOWN ONEONTA A-3

It Turns Out Famed Author George Saunders Lives Here

GUNS/From A1 tions in the gun-safety debate to ensure SAFE fully meets its goals. “We believe that the issue of gun safety and violence is a public health issue and concern, and that all New Yorkers should be protected from gun violence,” said Richard Abbate, the county Democratic chairman. Tuesday, state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, spoke against the law at a gun rally in Albany – Jim Losie of Losie’s Gun Shop, Bill Glockler of Middlefield and others had planned to attend – saying “it isn’t tough enough on real criminals.” Powers’ committee next meets at 9:15 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, in the county Office Building in Cooperstown. If his resolutions passes committee, the resolution will be presented to the full board at its March meeting, at 10 a.m. on Wednesday the 6th. Noting that county boards across New York State are drafting similar measures, Powers declared of the state’s new law, “It’s not going to happen. They (the state Legislature) did it wrong. They did it in the dark of night. They created a gun registry.” “I’m going to propose a resolution like many counties are doing that they’re not going to abide by this,” he said in an interview.

AUTHOR/From A1 later, you may have noticed the “local author” tag in a prominent display at the Green Toad Bookstore. As John O’Hara had Gibbsville, Sherwood Anderson had Winesburg, Ohio, and Hemingway had, well, Paris, could it be that Oneonta’s star may soon be rising as a locale in the works of arguably the foremost American novelist (so far) of the 21st Century? “It’s wonderful,” said SUNY Oneonta’s Richard Lee of “December,” which this week moved up to Number 5 on the Times Bestseller List, a rarity for a collection of short stories. “It continues the arc of his story writing,” said Lee, an associate professor English who has written several essays on Saunders’ work. Yes, he’s turned up at the

Green Toad, where proprietor Michele Pondolfino calls him “one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people we have in.” Sales of “December” have been strong in Oneonta. “Twenty-five copies in hardcover is significant in a small town,” she said. Many of them were signed by Saunders, and Pondolfino hopes to have him sign a few more when he returns from his book tour. In his own short fiction classes, Lee teaches “Brad Carrigan, American,” a scathing satire of consumerism and media apathy, from “In Persuasion Nation.” “He’s amazing,” said Brent DeLanoy, who teaches creative writing at Hartwick College. “Typically, I’ll read some of his stuff to my advanced fiction

class – I don’t want to spoil the freshman experience and have them spend the next three years trying to copy him.” A self-confessed “former Ayn Rand guy,” Saunders lost his taste for Objectivism while working at an oil exploration company in Sumatra and saw old women working the night shift around the mine. “You see people who are genuinely poor and genuinely suffering and they hadn’t gotten there by whining,” he told Joel Lovell in the Times article. After that, his work took on a decidedly satirical tone, much of it aimed at the types of wealthy who, like in his new story “The Semplica Girls,” would be proud to display women from third-world countries with wires through their

heads on their front lawn. “He breaks all the rules,” said DeLanoy. Saunders teaches graduate-level creative writing at Syracuse University, where he formerly studied under Tobias Wolfe. His other works include the novel

“CivilWarLand in Bad Decline,” “Pastoralia,” “In Persuasion Nation” and the essay collection “The Braindead Megaphone.” “He’s one of our best American short story writers,” said Lee.
