With Issues Aplenty, Let’s Not Punish Each Other For Disagreeing
he grizzled editor will tell the cub reporter heading out on a story: Keep asking questions until you keep hearing the same answers; then you know your reporting has come to an end. Such is the case in the Otsego County conversation, as underscored in this week’s news that Standard & Poor’s, despite the challenges all Upstate cities are facing, has chosen to raise the City of Oneonta’s bond rating from A+/Negative to A+/Stable. Health and higher education – S&P specifies Bassett Healthcare (3,500 employees) and SUNY Oneonta (1,100) – “anchor the regional economy.” We know that. Unemployment (7.3 percent) has remained below the national (down from 8.2 to 7.8), but – much less positive – the city’s median income is 60 percent of the national (somewhat pulled down by the college students.) The county’s median ($45,334) is 14 percent below the national ($52,672). We know that, too. We know that Cooperstowncentered tourism and Southside Oneonta’s big boxes create
municipal manager are a positive. All this allowed S&P’s raters to conclude that, despite the city’s structural deficit and “despite the tepid economy (nationally), Oneonta’s fiscal position remains very strong.” Miller’s campaign to get the Town of Oneonta thinking seriously about merger has gone farther than anyone would have imagined a few years ago. His discovery that a City of Greater Oneonta could have separate taxing districts, preserving a town’s lower rate for fewer services, is a game changer. We know that. Countywide, we can also find encouragement in stable and forward-looking leadership on the county Board of Representatives, interesting innovation coming out of the Cooperstown Village Board under Mayor Jeff Katz – merging village court into the Town of Otsego’s is on the Monday, Jan. 28 agenda – and burgeoning Chobani’s investments in the Edmeston area. We know, if we think about it, that Otsego County is ever-better positioned for the inevitable national economic rebound, although
enough sales-tax revenues that our county taxes are the second or third lowest in New York State. And that an Interstate (88) cuts across the county. And that we’re within a few hours of 50 percent of the U.S. population. And that our crime rate is low and our environment pleasing. We’re coming to understand the assets that give us a competitive advantage. • As a community, we know there are challenges, and we’re thinking them through, with Oneonta, in the Dick Miller Administration, leading the way. Miller’s fiveyear budget and capital projections, in particular, are models every locality of any size should emulate. The S&P report concluded – and we know – that the city’s charter revision and the hiring of the county’s only professional
‘citizen voices’ speak
it may not happen, as S&P has it, until 2015. • What’s interesting in the Standard & Poor’s report on the City of Oneonta – the full text may be viewed on www.allotsego.com – is the number of touchstones – employers, jobs, income, housing, professional management – that are examined. It’s ironic, or contradictory, or jarring that a segment of the executive committee of the county Democratic Party, which was scheduled to meet Thursday, Jan. 24, in West Oneonta, planned to apply a one-issue litmus test to three incumbents up for endorsement – Mayor Miller and county Reps. Linda Rowinski and Kay Stuligross, both of Oneonta. Not a one-issue litmus test, come to think of it, but a one-subissue litmus test: Not fracking, which they oppose – and should oppose – but the Constitution Pipeline, planned to carry fracked natural gas from another state (Pennsylvania) to the Eastern Seaboard (more than 100 miles hence.) Three Democratic executive
committee members – county Reps. John Kosmer, Fly Creek, and Beth Rosenthal, Roseboom, and Barbara Monroe of Milford, who are also affiliated with Sustainable Otsego – were considering opposing the incumbents. “You can’t throw Dick Miller out the door for one issue,” said county Democratic chair Richie Abbate, Cooperstown, who expressed support for the Oneonta trio, particularly since they have the support of former Oneonta mayors John Nader and Kim Muller. Miller’s mayoral performance – an independent, he ran in 2009 with the Democratic endorsement – has been superb. Rowinski, who broke a logjam and created bi-partisan county government, and Stuligross, who is leading the delicate repositioning of Otsego Manor, are just the kind of leaders the county needs. Let’s be resolute in our resistance to fracking locally, but we can chew bubblegum and walk across the room at the same time. • Regrettably, as of this writing, Please See EDITORIAL, A5

Residents objecting to paid parking at the Thursday, Dec. 20, hearing included, from left, Joan Clark, who owns the Iron Block, Rod Torrence of Stagecoach Coffee, and Russ Smith of Smith Disposal.
surveyed businesses and half supported paid parking, half did not. She stated that paid parking is not seen as a negative but parking tickets resulting from confusing signage or parking locations are negatives. In addition to the comments of the Pioneer residents, I felt that the isolated nature of those six residential slots (beyond proposed 15-minute slots, and the Tunnicliff Inn’s loading zone spaces) was confusing, and would require an additional pay/display machine. Stopping paid parking in the middle of the block seemed confusing – ending at Stagecoach Lane, before Stagecoach Coffee seemed a better stopping point.
Obviously, I made a mistake. Perception is reality and the perception is that I singled out the business owned by my brother Martin Tillapaugh. This despite the fact that there is only one, on-street parking space in front of his business and he has one of the largest private parking lots in the downtown, accommodating up to 60 cars. Ironically, he often provides parking for adjacent businesses and residents, as well as locals who need to frequent a Main Street business in the summer, but are unable to find parking. I am going to propose at the Monday, Jan. 28, trustee meeting that paid parking on Pioneer Street be extended
to the northern boundary of the business district (middle of the block). That will leave the residences unaffected, and any discussion of the 15-minute slots, a separate issue. I would like to point out that 30 years ago my husband and I bought our house at 80 Beaver St. where I have my business, Tillapaugh Art Conservation. It is the only business I own, operate and from which I receive “family” income. If I were interested in a financial benefit, as has been suggested, I would spend my time working in my studio as opposed to serving as an unpaid trustee. ELLEN TILLAPAUGH Village Trustee
Laissez-Faire Attitude Toward Fracking Not Good For NY To the Editor: If the DEC does the natural gas lobby’s bidding, it will publish its proposed fracking regulations by Feb. 13, 10 days before the regulations could go into effect. If it does, it will signal that New York State is to be a gas colony, teed up to export as much gas as possible overseas. The notion that local businesses and civilians would benefit from low-cost domestic natural gas was just that – a notion, used to buy off opposition to the pipelines that will carry shale gas to the export terminals on the coast. By Valentine’s Day, the DEC will likely get sued to block the issuance
of shale gas permits. Such a lawsuit would be richly deserved because New York suffers from two fundamental flaws that are unique in all the states. The first is that New York has no autonomous environmental oversight over shale gas – it assigns that responsibility to the Division of Mineral Resources, which is simply a pawn of the gas lobby. See http://www.scribd. com/doc/121346040/New-York-DECs-Fracking-Regulatory-Cover-Up. Secondly, New York is one of the few states that does not tax oil and gas production at the wellhead, meaning the state derives no revenue from the gas produced. New York is the only
state that lacks both – no state tax revenue and no independent environmental oversight of drilling. In a nutshell, New York is teed up to be colonized by outsiders for the purpose of shipping the state’s gas overseas. If this sounds a bit Third World, you’re not mistaken. That was the gas industry’s plan from the outset. It does not have to be this way. There is no reason why the state’s regulatory regime cannot be brought into the 21st Century. If not by the Legislature, then by a court of law. If necessary, one well permit at a time. JAMES L. NORTHRUP Cooperstown

200 YEARS AGO
Boston â€“ Yesterday, the specie, amounting to about 168,000 dollars, captured by Commodore Rodgersâ€™ squadron on board the British Swallow Packet, bound from Jamaica to England, was landed at the Navy Yard in Charlestown under the direction and order of the Marshal of the district, who caused it to be placed in six wagons, which, with colors flying and drums beating, attended by the boatâ€™s crews of the squadron, and protected by a guard of marines, proceeded through Charlestown and this town (Boston) to the State Bank, where it was deposited, amidst the huzzahs of a large collection of spectators. Of the prize money &c. captured by national vessels, belongs one-half to the captors. Of the specie captured by the squadron one half amounts to 84,000 dollars, a twentieth of which is 4,200 dollars. We trust that a resolve will pass the Congress relinquishing the half which accrues to the public to our gallant tars. January 23, 1813

Our readers will notice in the list of State Executive appointments, given this week, the name of the Hon. James D. Hammond, of Cherry Valley, as First Judge of Otsego County Courts. Mr. Hammond has been long and favorably known to the people of this county, and from the estimate which has been formed of his character as a citizen, jurist, and scholar we have every reason to believe that his appointment to this important and responsible station, will, to those interested, prove particularly acceptable.

From correspondence of the New York Times â€“ It is now over a month since, on the heels of the Battle of Fredericksburg, I left the Army of the Potomac; and I return after that interval to find the situation, in all its main aspects, unchanged. The felling of the forests, carried to an enormous extent in order to keep up the giant camp fires, has in many places sensibly altered the physiognomy of the country; thousands of log huts, built by the men of their own will and motion, have advantageously replaced the miserable and worse than useless shelter tents, and there have been numerous shiftings of camps for convenience of wood and water; but in a military point of view everything is as it was. Our force is still distributed along the north bank of the Rappahannock, and from Falmouth along the

A demonstration of the new chemical engine, recently added to the equipment of the Cooperstown Fire Department was held in the rear of Firemenâ€™s Hall Saturday morning in order to acquaint the firemen and citizens with its operation. The chemical engine is mounted on two wheels somewhat after the fashion of a hose cart. It carries two large cylinders, which operate very much the same as the hand chemical extinguishers in common use. The turning of a lever brings about a mixture of sulphuric acid with the soda and water with which the tank is filled, thus forming an effervescent fire-combatting substance which projects itself through the nozzle with great force. While one of the cylinders is expending its energy the other is being loaded. January 22, 1913

His co-author is Jack R. Hegrenes, Jr. Dr. Noehren is now practicing in Clackamas County, Oregon. Their article states: â€œWe propose legislation by the Congress of the United States to this effect: that each person whose income is inadequate for the purchase of his own medical care, may, upon his voluntary request, and with his eligibility automatically determined by his current income records, obtain assistance from the federal government for his own purchase of comprehensive prepayment doctoring in the open, free, competitive market of care.â€?

According to Vicki Zeldin, spokeswoman for the NYS Health Department, the clinics are located in Cobleskill, Walton, Herkimer and Norwich. Each clinic is licensed to operate a maximum of 60 hours per week. The clinic in Cobleskill was operating in excess of 210 hours; Walton, 230 hours, Herkimer, 95 hours and Norwich, 90 hours. â€œThis is strictly a technical violation,â€? said Mike Stein, Public Relations Director at Bassett. â€œThere is no indication that there is a problem with patient care.â€?

People Of Good Will Donâ€™t Agree Every Time EDITORIAL/From A4 word was received in recent days that â€œAlternate M,â€? the Constitution Pipeline route along I-88, which would have brought an estimated $3 million annually in county property taxes, has been discarded by the company. Thatâ€™s a blow, given the shortterm financial challenges from Otsego Manorâ€™s deficit and the generally down economy, including this yearâ€™s Hall of Fame shutout. A few months ago, the county board declined to help fund a Southside water district, even though the $90,000 would have been recouped within a couple of years by Loweâ€™s plans to double its footprint. The reps concluded they just didnâ€™t have the money. Happily, shifting the pipeline to northern Delaware County will ensure the expansion of Amphenol, with its 600 local jobs, many held by Otsego County people, will go forward in Sidney. And there will be broad access to low-cost natural gas locally for homes and industry. And there will be other opportunities, and elected representatives like Miller, Rowinski, Stuligross, Katz, county Board Chair Kathy Clark, R-Otego, and others have shown a willingness to embrace them, even if they involve some controversy. Everyone can respect and honor the intensity of groups like Sustainable Otsego, but the countyâ€™s challenges are multiple, and broad-gauged leaders are needed to tackled them

A-6 THE FREEMAN’S JOURNAL
Justice Courts May Merge JUSTICES/From A1 assume jurisdiction, saving the village $34,000 a year. “The only feedback I’ve gotten -- in the single digits -- is that it’s a good idea,” said Mayor Jeff Katz. Katz said he convened a group before the trustees’ December meeting that included the justices, Police Committee chair Lynne Mebust, Otsego Town Supervisor Anne GeddesAtwell and Village Police Chief Mike Covert, and everyone seemed “good with it.” The town court -- in Otsego Town Hall in Fly Creek -- is “a much nicer facility,” the mayor said. The village court, in the basement of 22 Main, has “no privacy,” and the public often stumbles across lawyers and clients trying to confer in the hallway. “There’s seemingly no impact
on service,” Katz said. “My gut is: The average village resident won’t see a bit of change in their lives.” The village will keep all revenue from its parking tickets, although about $8,000 in general traffic tickets will go to the town. The budget line for village court is $42,000, not including benefits for the justices and their clerk, Mary Ann Travis, who is also town court clerk. The $34,000 savings it about 2 percent of the tax levy, Katz said. If the Village Board votes in January to consolidate, any opponents would have 30 days to file a petition that would put the matter on the ballot in the March 19 village elections. If there is no petition, then the new arrangement will take effect at the end of the current justice term, April 1, 2014.
CCS To Revisit ‘Redskins’ Nickname NICKNAME/From A1 significant topic,” said Hebert – and the student body is aware of what’s happening. The public will have an opportunity to comment at the next school board meeting, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the cafeteria. Borgstrom raised the possible name change with the school board on Dec. 19. “It has troubled me for some time that we recognize the importance of education, make a commitment to it, and espouse a need for cultural sensitivity, while support-

ing a school nickname this is the antithesis of this philosophy,” he said then in prepared remarks. “What would be the Board of Education response, if ever asked to justify our commitment to cultural sensitivity education and the nickname ‘Redskins’?” he asked. For now, Borgstrom said, only the nickname, not the school logo, is under discussion. He said the school board was in general agreement that it was time to raise the matter again, which was last addressed – to some controversy – in 2001.
Losing Pipeline Doesn’t Calm Political Waters PIPELINE/From A1 precious stones sought after despite the damage to African countries where they are mined. “Just because they aren’t fracking here,” said Kosmer, “it’s OK to put people at risk in Pennsylvania and Ohio.” The route that will be included in the Constitution’s application to FERC (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) in the spring Project Manager Matt Swift called the Delaware route – it will be proposed to FERC (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) in an application to be submitted in the spring – “the best possible path to minimize environmental and landowner impacts.” While not in Otsego County, the route – through the towns of Sidney, Franklin, Davenport and Harpersfield – parallels the county line. And as an “open access” pipeline, it could still be tapped locally by institutions, industry and municipalities. While he regretted the pipeline won’t be in this county, Mayor Miller said, “I’m delighted they continue to plan to move forward in
our area. The county won’t benefit as directly as if it was; that said, the construction will have a positive impact on the Oneonta community.” For his part, Adrian Kuzminski, Fly Creek, moderator of anti-fracking Sustainable Otsego, said, “All the groups that are opposed to the pipeline are going to continue to act. I see no reason to change. The goal is still to stop the pipeline.” “Alternate M,” Swift said, was the “most significant route alternative” not chosen, after the company discovered the construction and environmental challenges were “significantly greater” than the chosen route. The route chosen has 87 fewer acres of forest, 20 fewer miles of “side-slope construction,” 22 fewer stream and pond crossings, and is closer to fewer homes. “Alternate M” was not among the original options, but was studied after state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, and state Rep. Pete Lopez, R-Schoharie, last summer urged Constitution to study the I-88 right-of-way to minimize community impacts.
“Alternate M” received further momentum when the Otsego County Board of Representatives endorsed it in October. The Delaware County Board of Supervisors, fearing the loss of tax revenues, then endorsed the route that is now the selected one. The ensuing debate over whether the pipeline would be a stalking horse for gas drilling split fracking opponents, with anti-fracker Lou Allstadt of Cooperstown, the retired Mobil executive vice president, calling such a linkage “nonsense.” Nonetheless, “Alternate M” was excoriates by 800 anti-frackers at a FERC hearing at Foothills Performing Arts Center in October. Nonetheless, the dispute still lives. In addition to Kosmer, county Rep. Beth Rosenthal, Roseboom, and Barbara Monroe of Milford planned to oppose Miller, Rowinski and Stuligross in the executive committee, and the party’s county chair, Richie Abbate, Cooperstown expressed concern the party would be split, particularly since former Oneonta mayors John Nader and Kim Muller are in Miller’s camp.
Attendees Return Home ‘Amazed’ By Obama Inauguration OBAMA/From A1 “The wind chill was minus-60 at Reagan’s 1985 inauguration,” said Messner, who is Hartwick College chaplain and pastor of churches in Oneonta and Hartwick Seminary. “Everything was cancelled. We watched him take the
oath from Sherwood Boehlert’s office, eating his reception food.” Messner took two high school students, Josh Bush, Milford, and Josh Bennington, Chittenango, with him. Congressman Chris Gibson provided tickets. Gibson provided tickets to Cooperstown’s
first lady, Karen Katz, and her youngest son Joey, too. Lacking tickets but also at the event were 46 CCS students, led by social studies teacher Jennifer Pindar and six chaperones. “It was an amazing experience,” she said. “We were part of history.

VOICES/From A4 entities that operate at the County level. • First is OCED, which is part of county government and provides administrative support to the other two entities. • Second is the IDA or Industrial Development Agency, which is quasi-government. It has a separate board with nine members appointed by the county Board of Representatives. It may own property that it leases or later sells to businesses. An example is the Pony Farm Industrial Park. Historically, the IDA had the authority to issue Civic Facility Revenue Bonds on behalf of local-not-for-profit institutions like Fox and Bassett hospitals, St. Mary’s School, Hartwick College and the St. James’ residential facility. In 2008 this legislative authority was subjected to a sunset provision and thus no longer exists. However, the Otsego County Capital Resource Corporation, incorporated by the county Board, now handles these transactions. • Third is the OCDC or Otsego County Development Corp. It is a private, not-for-profit entity that has its own board and is chaired by Doug Gulotty. It was founded in 1959 to promote culture, recreation, economic development, trade and commerce. Collectively these three entities (OCED, IDA and OCDC) administer loan and grant funds available to encourage private sector economic development. The money may come from the federal government (HUD or Housing and Urban Development) via block grants to the States or from the State itself. Once a project for additional funding is identified, one or more of these agencies may
apply to the State for funds from a block grant. When the loans are repaid the money is then used to create a revolving loan fund to provide loans for other future projects. Interest rates are competitive and there can be increased flexibility with regards to when repayment is expected. In general, these loans do not fund an entire project. Instead they can be used to fund the portion of the project that represents the difference between the total amount needed and the amount a bank is willing to finance. That difference may be referred to as the “gap.” Doing this reduces the bank’s risk and thus makes it easier to obtain bank funding. This process is often used to fund agricultural and high-tech projects like the startup and expansion of Ioxus (occupies the former Soccer Hall of Fame facility). The person with her finger on the pulse of economic development in Oneonta is Carolyn Lewis. She’s good at her job and she cares about Oneonta and the county. If you’re trying to navigate the alphabet soup, she’s a great place to start. Her number is (607) 432-8871 Ext. 207. SBDC, the Small Business Development Corp., helps people who want to start or expand a small business. Michelle Catan helps owners and prospective owners with all phases of developing a viable business plan prior to seeking funding assistance. CADE or the Center for Agricultural Development and Entrepreneurship is a private, not-for-profit entity that can assist with sourcing grants and other funds to assist with agriculturally based business development.

1953, to Frederick and Jeannette Hensley. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Scranton and Penn State’s College of Medicine, and pursued a career of cardiac anesthesiologist, educator, administrator and published author. He left Bassett in 2009 to accept appointment as
Your Friend In Time of Need
Benjamin Monroe Carraway Endowed Professor at the University of Alabama/Birmingham, where he had served a fellowship in 1983. Tony Jones, M.D., who chaired the UAB Department of Anesthesiology, described him as “a national leader in the field of anesthesiology in general and in cardiothoracic anesthesiology in particular.” Hensley was on the editorial board of the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia from 1989 to 2005, and consulted to other professional journals.
He was an elected member of the Association of University Anesthesiologists and a senior Dr. Frederick board examiner for Hensley the American Board of Anesthesiology. He was a member of the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists. Hensley presented papers and moderated at numerous technical and profes-
sional meetings and lectured widely at conferences. He published numerous articles, letters and editorials in peerreviewed journals as well as more than a dozen book chapters. He had received the University of Scranton’s Frank J. O’Hara Alumni Award for Excellence in Medicine. Survivors include his wife, Theresa; daughters Theresa Jeannette and Jennifer Elizabeth, and nieces Malia Cooler and Laura Radcliff and their children. He was preceded in death by his son, Frederick Allen
Hensley III. The funeral mass was Wednesday, Jan 23, at St. Mary’s “Our Lady of the Lake” Catholic Church, where he was a communicant. Memorial contributions may be made to the Frederick A. Hensley, Jr. MD, Endowed Fund for Education in Cardiac Anesthesia at UAB, c/o Kristen Hall, FOT 1225, 1720 2nd Avenue S, Birmingham, AL 352943412.

COOPERSTOWN – Peter C. Costello, 72, who fought back from severe burns and injuries suffered in an car crash to enjoy a varied and productive life, died Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, at the Otsego Manor, his home for the last year and a half. Peter was born Nov. 10, 1940, the son of Edward R. and Dorothy (Grimshaw) Costello. He excelled in a number of sports at Cooperstown High School, graduating in 1958. He served in the Army from 1959 to 1963. Peter loved the outdoors and always had fond memories of his family’s camp on White Lake in the Adirondacks where his exploits in
and around the water were legendary. After the April 1965 accident, where he lost his right hand and forearm, he spent more than a year in medical institutions. He displayed his characteristic stubbornness, outspokenness and iron will, refusing to use a prosthetic arm or hand and insisting people “take me as I am or not at all.” He taught himself to meet his needs with his remaining arm and hand, and described his life since as the years of Connie, goat herds, skeet shooting, motorcycles and bluegrass festivals. He worked in Smith Ford’s parts department for years, then for many years at
NAPA, becoming expert in the field. He was loyal to his family and friends, and in later years helped care for his aging and blind “Uncle Bill,” ensuring he retained his residence and independence. Survivors include a brother Edward, in Durham, N.C.; two nieces, Anna Bland and Mary Ellen; nephew Patrick; uncle Jim Grimshaw of Rochester, and many good friends, among them, Gordie and Barb Robinson, David St. John, Bob LaDuke, Ricky Lindroth, Elnora Rathbun, Bob Solarchik, Stu Fink and Ron Jennings. In accordance with Peter’s wishes there will be
no funeral service or calling hours. A private remembrance will be in the spring at the Costello grave site in Ilion. Memorial contributions may be made to the Residents Activities Fund, c/o Otsego Manor, 128 Phoenix Mills Crossroad, Cooperstown, NY 13326. One final note, Peter wanted it known that although he was the one blamed for dropping a M-80 into the toilet in Joe Clancy’s Doubleday Restaurant following his senior class trip, he was NOT the one who did it. Arrangements were entrusted to Tillapaugh Funeral Service.
