Constitution Pipeline Receives Final
Federal Environmental Review
Bainbridge
Man Charged
With Murder
BAINBRIDGE - John M.
Guzy, 56 of Bainbridge was
arrested Monday and charged
with murder in the second degree shooting death of Derek
D. Prindle, 26 of Afton.
New York State Police responded to the shooting, which
occurred at approximately 1:27
p.m. in the parking lot of Peak
Fitness on Rt. 7 in the Town of
Bainbridge. Prindle was taken
to the Tri-Town Hospital in
Sidney where he later died.
Also injured in the shooting
incident was Derek S. Prindle,
60, also of Afton, the younger
Prindle’s father. He was transported to Wilson Regional
Hospital in Johnson City
where he was being treated for
a gunshot wound.
Guzy was taken into custody at the Troop C State Police in Sidney where he was
charged with second-degree
murder. He was arraigned in
the Town of Bainbridge Court
and remanded to the Chenango
County Jail without bail.
It was reported that Guzy
was a retired New York City
police officer who had relocated in the tri-town area several
years ago, and was hired as a
part-time corrections officer at
the end of June.
In an update Tuesday afternoon, State Police said an
autopsy conducted at Lourdes
Hospital in Binghamton on
Derek D. Prindle determined
he bled to death due to a gunshot wound to his chest. The
autopsy was performed by
Dr. James Terzian, forensic
pathologist
State Police are looking for
anyone who witnessed what
happened prior to the incident, involving a grey Chevrolet Trail Blazer and a blue
Hyundai Santa Fe between 1
and 1:45 p.m. on State Rt. 7
between Bainbridge and the
State Police barracks at Sidney. Anyone with information
is asked to contact the New
York State Police at Sidney at
(607) 561-7400.

investigation
is
ongoing.

WASHINGTON, D.C. Constitution Pipeline Company, LLC reported on Friday
a key regulatory milestone toward approval to construct its
proposed pipeline on a schedule that targets increasing natural gas supply to New York
and New England markets in
time for the winter 2015-16
heating season.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct.
24 published its final environmental review of the proposed 124-mile Constitution
Pipeline. The FERC action is
a key step toward the commission’s decision on the project,
which is expected as early as
late November.
Assuming timely receipt of
all necessary regulatory approvals, Constitution Pipeline
would begin construction as
early as the first-quarter next
year in order to help meet winter 2015-16 heating-season
needs in New York and New
England.
Earlier this year, Constitution Pipeline and Leatherstocking Gas Company, LLC
announced plans to install
four delivery taps along Constitution’s proposed route to
facilitate local natural gas service to homes and businesses

“After a long and comprehensive review of our proposed route, as well as significant route alternatives, the
FERC’s Final Environmental
Impact Statement confirms
that the Constitution Pipeline
can be constructed in a manner
that minimizes environmental
impacts, while adding a key
piece of natural gas infrastructure to the U.S. Northeast,”
the project sponsors said in a
joint statement. “Once in service, the Constitution Pipeline
will provide important access
to new, domestic sources of
natural gas, bolstering supply
reliability and contributing toward stabilization of the prices
consumers pay for energy.”
Specific to New England,
insufficient natural gas pipeline infrastructure last winter
had the effect of exposing
consumers to high natural gas
prices and, as a result, higher
electric-power costs. The Constitution Pipeline is designed
to help address the issue by
connecting New England markets with abundant, low-cost,
cleaner energy via an interconnect with the existing Tennessee Pipeline. Additionally, the
Constitution Pipeline is designed to enhance New York’s

Two New Businesses to Open
Monday, Nov. 3, in Industrial Park
SIDNEY - Opening Monday, Nov. 3 will be two new
businesses at 5 Winkler Road
in the Sidney Industrial Park.
Unadilla Fasteners and
Wheel of Redemption, both
owned and operated by Greg
and Susan Hoke, will be a
great addition to the Industrial
Park and the Village of Sidney. Both stores’ hours of operation are going to be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to
6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to
3 p.m.
Unadilla Fasteners is a
wholesale/retail business carrying normal nuts and bolts in
GREG and SUSAN HOKE pose by the new sign in front
of 5 Winkler Road in the Sidney Industrial Park. The
couple’s two new businesses, Unadilla Fasteners and
Wheel of Redemption, are located in the Tri-Town News
building.
a wide variety of sizes, lengths
and materials from small
screws to large bolts both
American and metric thread.
They also carry a full line of
auto body fasteners as well as
washers, rivets, threaded rod
and many other various types
of fasteners. They also will
be carrying a small selection
of tooling and other fastenerrelated items such as drill bits,
taps, dies, etc.
Inventory has been coming
in over the past two months
and is continuing to come in
weekly. They have several
suppliers and are confident
that they will be able to fill the
needs of almost everyone from
the every day homeowner,
auto repair shops, fleets, municipalities, to large industry.
Greg said he has missed
many of his friends and former customers and he and Susan are excited about serving
these people and making new
friends and customers. If they
don’t currently have it on the
shelf they can normally have
it within 48 hours and if you
have a need for them to stock
certain items for you, they say,
they would be more than happy to do so!
Wheel of Redemption is a
bottle and can recycling center
with a little added “spin” to it.
When returning your recyclables you will spin a wheel to
get up to seven cents per container. Greg and Susan believe
this will add a little fun when
returning your recyclables, not
to mention the opportunity to
be able to get back more than

Community dinner.

Bainbridge Chamber to Honor
Dave Worden on Sat., Nov. 8
BAINBRIDGE - A 32
year veteran with the Bainbridge Fire Department, Dave
Worden, will be honored by
the Bainbridge Chamber of
Commerce at their annual
Commitment to Community Dinner Saturday, Nov. 8.
Worden will be presented with
the chamber’s Citizen of the
Year award.
Dave’s service to his community, both as a volunteer
fireman, and as a member of
several village committees,
led to his selection for this
year’s honor.
It’s Bainbridge’s community spirit that influenced Dave
to seek ways to help his neighbors. Dave speaks of Bainbridge’s “small town atmo-
sphere where almost everyone
knows his or her neighbor, or
the person walking down the
street, or the person near him
or her in the diner.”
Dave’s distinguished service with the local fire department includes serving as fire
chief from 1994-96, member
of the emergency squad for
three years, serving on two fire
department truck committees
in 1995 and 2002, representing the Bainbridge Fire Dept.
at the Chenango County Fire
Advisory Board and Communications Task Force committees. He also served on the
selection committee for the
current Chenango County Fire
Coordinator. In addition to his

It’s Treats Not Tricks
For Local Kids Oct. 31

looking at this Friday, Oct.
31, the official Halloween, as
Trick or Treat Night for area
youngsters. The emphasis is
on the “treats”.

enjoy having costumed children stop by for treats are
asked to leave their porch
lights on.
Motorists are reminded to be
especially cautious and on the
lookout for the youngsters.
There are a variety of Halloween events in the area.
Several are included here:

Sidney has declared Oct. 31

KSENIA KRAVTSOVA stands in front of her new hair
salon and spa at 187-1 Main St., Unadilla.
“Touch of Elegance” Graces
Unadilla’s Main Street
UNADILLA – A new, fullservice unisex hair salon and
spa, “Touch of Elegance,” has
opened at 187-1 Main St. in
Unadilla.
Ksenia Kravtsova, a native
of Russia, said having her own
shop is a dream come true.
She and her husband have
lived in the area for several
years, but for a self-proclaimed
“city girl” it took awhile to get
used to the rural life. “I was
taken aback at first, thinking I
was moving into a forest, but
after a while I came to realize how beautiful and peaceful and quite comfortable the
community was. We look forward to spending the rest of
our lives here.”
Ksenia immigrated to the
United States in 2001 and
proceeded to build her career
in the U.S. She said it proved
to be a fairly difficult task because all of her certifications
and licenses no longer applied. “I had to begin all over
again. This proved to be a
very difficult task as my English skills were far from fully
developed,” she said.
She attended the Anne-Marie School of Beauty in Binghamton and is a New York
State licensed cosmetologist.
She has also taken formal
classes in the use of L’Oreal
beauty products. In addition,
she worked for several years
as an assistant in several hair
salons in New York City.
Her shop is open Tuesdays
through Saturdays from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m., and by appointment
on Sundays for weddings.
Her services include: haircut, coloring, styling, perms,
barber, manicure and facial
wax, with plans to offer additional services in the future.
Since she was a young girl
growing up in St. Petersburg,
Russia, she said she has been
enamored with beauty and
bringing out the best in people, places and things. “I have
always endeavored to lead
by example where possible
and show others that there
is beauty everywhere. What
became clear to me at a very
early stage is an old American
saying, ‘if you look good, you
feel good’ and in general this
has held true. Incidentally, we
have the same saying in Russia! This, to my mind, allows
me to contribute to the wellbeing of others in some small
way,” Ksenia said.
One of her first jobs in Europe – at age 20 – was working with a large cosmetics
distribution firm as a manager
and later as a general manager.
Later she worked as a clothing
and makeup model throughout
Europe. She said during this
time she worked with some
of the best hair stylists in the
most prestigious hair salons
and began learning her craft.
She said she is fortunate
to have become friends with
Oleg Dvorkin, one of the top
stylists in New York City with
more than 40 years’ experience in all aspects of cosmetology. He has been the owner
and lead stylist at several large
salons in both Brooklyn and
Manhattan. “He has in every
way become my mentor and
advisor,” Ksenia added.
She also wanted to thank
those involved in building
her salon – Jerry Pacchiano
and Liz Brett (contractors),
Joe Rico (electrician) and Joe
Corso (plumbing).
Watch for Touch of Elegance’s grand opening later
in November, and see her advertisement elsewhere in this
issue.

Comedy Grace and Glorie
On Stage Nov. 7, 8, 9
BAINBRIDGE – The Out
of the Woodwork Players will
open their 26th live theatre
season Nov. 7, 8 and 9 with
Tom Ziegler’s comedy, Grace
and Glorie. Sue Atkinson directs this odd couple comedy
about a 90-year old country
cancer patient and her NYC
transplant volunteer hospice
worker. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7
and 8, with a 2 p.m. matinee
on Sunday, Nov. 9.
First presented at the
Shenandoah Valley Playwrights Retreat under the title
Apple Dreams, the play made
its debut as Grace and Glorie
in 1991 at Theatre Virginia,
Richmond. The 1996 OffBroadway run featured Estelle Parsons and Luci Arnaz,
followed, two years later, by
Hallmark Hall of Fame’s TV
version with Gena Rowlands
and Diane Lane.
Trish Guokas and Marie Sroka play this dynamic
duo in OWP’s production at
the Bainbridge Town Hall
Theatre.
Combining hope and humor
in doses driven by the all too
poignant theme of dignity in
dying, Grace and Glorie takes
us to the Blue Ridge Mountain
home of Grace (Guokas) who
has checked herself out of the
hospital to die alone in her beloved cottage. Glorie, (Sroka)
a seemingly sophisticated
Harvard MBA, arrives with
her own emotional baggage.
While the battle with cancer
wanes, the battle of wits is just
beginning.
In keeping with the cancer
awareness theme and good
cheer for those undergoing
cancer treatments, OWP has
joined forces with the local
Red Hat Pussycats chapter to
have a drop box at the performances for items appropriate
to the Bonnie Box gift effort.
These shoebox-size boxes are
filled with needed supplies
and cheerful gifts for cancer
patients, then decorated and
delivered to local hospitals.
With the holidays right around
the corner, cheer for those isolated due to their health, is a
most important ingredient.
Donations range from unscented medically related
items like hand lotion, chap-
stick, pocket-sized hand sanitizer, little tissue packets and
Dove sensitive bar soap, to
edibles such as dark chocolate candy, pretzels, chips,
crackers, cans of ginger ale,
mint/apple cinnamon decaf
tea bags, bottled water and
Powerade Zero. Warm, fluffy
socks, soft knit hats and indoor gloves provide comfort from the cold while soft
stuffed animals, giumbly pets,
solar flowers, bubbles, small
notebooks, crossword puzzle
and word search books with
pens keep isolated patients
entertained. Reading material

Sidney School District
Taxpayers Deserve Better
Concerned Taxpayers of Sidney have brought to the attention of taxpayers a Sidney CSD
Board of Education decision to
award bonuses/stipends to the
administrators because “Sidney
students significantly improved
their test scores.” The lack of
gratitude for the work of the
teachers was also made clear.
Now I would like to make
taxpayers aware of the basis on
which these bonuses/stipends
were awarded. Yes, it is true that
the scores have “significantly
improved.” However, you must
know what “significant” means
to this administration and
Board. The academic ranking
of Sidney Central School District in 2012-13 was 370 out of
429 upstate New York Schools.
That, fellow taxpayers, places
our school District in the bottom 14% of upstate New York
schools. A 50-100% improvement in all test scores would
not even raise the scores to the
State average. This fact is supported by the most current test
scores available to you on the
NYS Department of Education
website. In 7 out of 12 math and
ELA assessments Sidney CSD
scored below the State-wide average.
Ask yourself if 58%,
66%, 69%, 71%, 74%, 79%
and 81% non-proficiency rates
reflect stellar, award-winning
management. Evidently the educational philosophies set down
by the current administration
are not effective.
Sidney had a history of academic excellence spanning
more than 50 years. Just eight
years ago, prior to beginning the
building of the present regime,
the Sidney Elementary School
was in the top 80% in the State.
Now the entire district is in the
bottom 14%. I brought these
statistics to the attention of the
Board two years ago when the
district was in the bottom 24%
and I was met with unprofessional, rude, disrespectful com-
ments from two board members
and an administrator. At that
time I was told the decrease in
test scores was because of the
teaching staff. Now we are told
the increase in test scores is because of the administration. You
cannot play scapegoat and hero
with the same facts.
I have always believed the
Board of Education is elected
by the people, to represent the
people and safeguard the education of the children. Is that the
case in Sidney CSD? This administration is responsible for
leading the Sidney CSD into
dramatic decline. The Board of
Education and the administration are the policy makers, not
the teachers. I truly admire the
teachers of Sidney CSD. With
increased enrollment, staffing
cuts and increased class sizes
I cannot believe you can even
teach with both hands tied behind your back, scripted words
shoved down your throat, staff
mapping and the threat of
“administrative leave of absence” hanging over your head.
Teachers, thank you for all you
do within your power for the
students in our District.
At the Oct. 21 Board meeting the Sidney Teachers’ Association arranged for a delightful musical presentation
by some young musicians and
their teacher. At the end of the
meeting they provided a reception in honor of “School Board
Appreciation Month.” Their efforts were met with unprofessional, rude, disrespectful, snide
remarks from an administrator
and a board member.
If you agree that a taxpayer
funded education for Sidney
students should be 86% worse
than all other upstate schools
then all you have to do is remain silent. If you believe the
students of this District deserve
an education equal to what was
once offered in this District than
it’s time to get involved and demand better. Vent up – not out.
Incidentally, the “District
Communication Guidelines”
provided you by the District are
incorrect. Two additional contacts that were eliminated in all
areas are the Board of Education and the NYS Department of
Education. A public education is
not a dictatorship; it is a public
entity owned and operated by
the taxpayers.

BAINBRIDGE
25 YEARS AGO
November 1, 1989
Thirty-four people, in addition to the Zoning Board of Appeals and CHIP representatives,
attended the Oct. 26 hearing
concerning a two-story building, 24-unit housing complex
proposed for South Main St.
on a site adjacent to the Maple
Manor property. The central
problem appeared to be that a
multiple family dwelling is permissive in an R-2 district upon
issuance of a special permit, but
there are no existing specifications applicable to multi-family
dwellings by which the Bainbridge Zoning Board of Appeals
may be guided in determining
whether or not the special permit may be granted.

BAINBRIDGE
50 YEARS AGO
October 28, 1964
Dr. Edward Danforth, 85,
was about 20 miles off the Constitution Pipeline route. Cooperstown’s largest employer,
Bassett Hospital, needs cheap
energy to cut costs. Doesn’t
matter. Ideology trumps all.
In Sidney, fewer signs these
days, but a segment of the population shares the Cooperstown
sentiment. For some folks it’s
almost a religious fervor against
anything that supports fracced
gas.
Follow that fervor up the
funding food chain and you’ll
find a powerful group of
wealthy individuals. They fund
a multilayered, professionally
choreographed communications
network of environmental organizations, academics, activists,
newsletters, blogs and a daisy
chain of self referenced media.
Search engine and find: “Chain
of Environmental Command:
How a Club of Billionaires,
Their Foundations, Control the
Environmental Movement and
EPA. US Senate, Minority Report, July 30, 2014” for an eyeopening outline of their game
plan. Their mission: discredit
and destroy gas development.
Cheap domestic natural gas is
the competition.
These crony capitalists are
heavily invested in renewables
shich lose in the marketplace
unless inoculated with massive
government subsidies. In other
words -- your tax dollars.
Enter the ultimate insiders.
The politically connected rich
get loans, loan guarantees, and
tax abatements. It doesn’t end
there. They get guaranteed market share through government
mandates and a rebated discount sticker price for their cus-
tomers. Your tax dollars makes
it all happen.
At an energy forum in Oneonta last month, a lady extolled
her $23,000 solar system, for
which she paid about $8,500.
A good deal for the lady except
that we, the taxpayers, paid the
difference. These good deals,
even bundled together, are
small change compared to the
mega-deals of the super-rich.
Google’s Eric Schmidt built
Ivanpah, a $2.2 billion solar/
thermal electric power plant in
the Mojave Desert. It’s funded
by a $1.6 billion federal loan
which the principals plan to pay
with . . . a federal grant. That’s
not counting California subsidies. Elon Musk, fresh from
squeezing Nevada for a $1.3
billion subsidy to build a battery
factory, scored again in New
York with a 3/4 billion handout
for Musk’s SolarCity panel factory in Buffalo. Two deals in
two months. Think Elon is having a good year?
Check the Billionaires Club’s
portfolios and you’ll find lots
more.
And yet . . .and yet . . . there’s
that pesky gas. Lots of it in our
own country. We produce more
than Russia. It’s cheap, easy to
move around, even lowers the
CO2 levels where it’s used. Left
to the market, gas rules. The billionaires know this. Therefore,
gas must be destroyed.
Recently, with great fanfare,
a new generation of Renewable
Rockefellers swore off fossil
fuels. They’ve thrown out the
tankers, purged their carbon
portfolios. With others, they‘ve
announced $50 billion in assets
pledged to anything but fossil
fuels.
The ironies abound.
The Rockefeller Brothers
Foundation whose wealth was
built on fossil fuels, have now
joined the sanctified to atone
for their family’s original sin.
They support renewables. They
retain, however, their grandfather’s DNA by actively attacking the competition, just
as Old John D. did, building
his Standard Oil monopoly by
crushing the competition. To
this end, the Rockefeller Foundation funds multiple anti-gas
organizations, among them the
Natural Resources Defense
Council (NRDC). Last summer
in Morris, the NRDC offered
the services of two Columbia
Law School graduates and a
community organizer to mount
attacks on drilling at the town
level. Ivy League lawyers don’t
come cheap.
Another irony; the 600,000
dekatherms of gas scheduled
to flow through the Constitution Pipeline from Pennsylvania to New York City will heat
the homes and cook the food of
those most opposed to gas drilling. It will lower NYC’s CO2
emissions, reduce its energy
bills, and lower its asthma rates
by replacing heating oil used
today. No matter. The NYC Assemblymen continue to demand
a moratorium for upstate New
York.
A few of those dekatherms
are destined for Sidney. No
matter how much noise the antis make at Town Board meetings or how many lawn signs
they manage to put up, the

that the wells are filling up.
We are keeping watch for
more calves each day and
Saturday morning, I awoke to
hear some bawling in the barn.
When we investigated we discovered a cow had freshened
with another heifer calf. It was
pretty dark early in the morning and Harold and I decided
to get the mother and baby
into the barnyard with her calf
so the others would not stomp
them. Mother and baby are
doing well now and the calf is
being fed with a bottle in the

Articles of play and amusement
have certainly changed over the
years since 1916 when the accompanying picture was taken. Even
though the Decker family had an
automobile then, Bernett and his
brother Ellery entertained their
mother’s cousin by drawing him in
a small wagon which would have
been played with like a toy truck.
My favorite toy was an all metal
small dump truck which I could
coast down the sidewalk.
The adult riding in the cart is

Cousin Cassius Fox and brothers Ellery and Bernett
He was a favorite cousin of my
Decker in the Decker front yard in 1916. Picture from
grandmother, and son of Lucinda

Hurd Fox. She kept in close touch
with many of her relatives.
When I was young, we still had the wagon and played with it with my brothers and cousins. I think
that the front wheels were the last part to survive, but they are now gone.
The background shows some of the history of the Decker farm. The maple trees were set out by the
first generation to arrive from Jefferson in 1866. Those trees are now all gone. The small white building
at the center was built as the garage for my grandfather Frank Decker for his first car about 1913. It is
now a modern residence.
My house, in the background to the right, has its front porch, built by Frank Lewis and Son of
Harpursville in 1909. The porch changed the character of the house, originally built in about 1835.
Bernett, my father to the right in the picture, kept the concrete damp while it was curing. After over 100
years, there are some crumbly spots.
Later generations enjoyed mechanized snowmobiles and go-carts when they came to visit--no
hand-drawn vehicles. My father always entertained visiting cousins on such loud, gasoline powered
contraptions.
Today I have only one niece in New York State, so we seldom see each other. My brother Ray lives
in Michigan, My brother Martin lives in Rhode Island and my sister Sylvia lives in New Hampshire.
Their kids live from coast to coast, so we seldom get together. I have never seen some of the youngest
generation.

Tri Town Theatres Continues Rehearsals
For The Addams Family Musical Comedy
THE SIDNEY TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION thanked the Sidney School Board members
with cake and punch as they celebrated School Board Appreciation Week at the regular
Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 21. Board members left to right: Robert
Holt, Tammy Schunk, Kimberly Ayres, Terri Theobald and Nancy Parsons, President.
SIDNEY - Rehearsal for
“The Addams Family” continues with much excitement for
opening night and the cast and
crew are putting in everything
they have to bring this play to
life here in Sidney.
You will have a hard time
holding back your laughter for
the loveable character Uncle
Fester being played by George
Paterson of Sidney. George
sure does bring Uncle Fester
to life. You will truly fall in
love with Uncle Fester as he
summons the ancestors from
the crypt and discloses the
love of his life. Who is she and
does he ever get to be with his
love? Come see the show and
find out the answer.
George is a musician and
former NYC resident. He studied at Hunter College and Acting at UNLV. He worked with
OWP on The Sound of Music,
played Communist John in
Jade Sharma’s Sleepyhead at
NYC’s acclaimed Nuyorican
Poets Café, and did a video
production with Greg Tomme’s Babylon during NYC’s
Fringe Festival.
An even more enjoyable and
laughter producing character
is Grandma being played by
Dorothy Rudolph of Unadilla.
She is the soul and spirit of the
family, but which side of the
family does she really belong
too? Well they really aren’t
sure, but the fact remains that
she is 102 and she should have
been put out of her misery
years ago.
Dorothy caught the acting bug while in high school
and in college she played the
Housekeeper in Don Quixote.
She toured the Eastern seaboard as lead vocalist in the
Rich Rudolph Happy Polka
Knights Orchestra. After a
long hiatus, she came to the
community theatre as Dr.
Whipple in Anne Warbucks,
Emily in Fine Monster You
Are, Yenta in Fiddler on the
Roof, a Pickalittle lady in The
Music Man. She had major
roles in The Sound of Music,
Carousel, and the operetta
Sweethearts.
TTT is so happy to have
George and Dorothy as part
of the cast of The Addams
Family.
The Addams Family will
be staged on Nov. 21, 22 and
23 at the newly remodeled
Sidney High School auditorium. Tickets are on sale now
at Rainbows End in Sidney
and Home Town Hardware in
Bainbridge. Watch for further
information about the play
here in the Tri-Town News.
This play is being produced
with the generous assistance
of the Sidney United Way, of
which TTT is a proud member
agency.

marriage filled with love and
laughter; also, his children,
whom he loved and was so
proud of, Jeffrey (Christine),
Matthew, (Dana) and Laura
(Wally) Mertens. Gary was a
loving grandfather, “Poppy”
to Christopher, Lindsey, Ryan,
Evan, Anna, Wyatt, Elliott
and Gretta, and through each
of these beloved children his
legacy will remain.
The first 14 years of Gary’s
life were spent on the family
farm in Johnny Brook until the
family was forced to vacate
due to the construction of the
Cannonsville Dam. His passion for the countryside was
immeasurable. His love spread
from every wooded area, to
every winding creek. Even up
until very recently, he could be
found walking the very same
fields that he had walked in
his youth. Some of his fondest
childhood memories included
his brother Phil and his sisters
Diane, Faith and Lois.
Gary attended and graduated from both Morrisville State
University and Arizona State
University. He was a highly
decorated wrestler at both institutions. In 1997, Gary was
placed upon Morrisville’s Wall
of Fame for his athletic accomplishments including both first
place and outstanding wrestler
at the 1966 NJCAA tournament. While at Arizona State
University, Gary earned a spot
as a First Team All American,
an honor achieved by very
few men. Gary also took sixth
place at the 1968 NCAA Wrestling Championship. Gary put
forth a great deal of his blood,
sweat, and tears into the sport
that he loved. He approached
it just as he did with his farm
back home, with an attitude of
respect, dedication and hard
work.
Gary and Linda owned and
operated Aircove Farms Dairy
in Bainbridge for 30 years. In
1993 his son, Jeffrey, became
a partner at the farm with his
father. Though Gary’s accomplishments were seemingly
endless, one of his proudest
was, being a founding member
of the Bainbridge Lions Club.
This was a club full of some
of his friends who remain very
dear to him. For those of us
who had the honor of coming
in contact with Gary, we were
all blessed by his love and
filled with nothing but respect
for him. He was a man whose
word was his bond and whose
smile and laughter will forever be synonymous with his
memory. He will be missed
more than words can possibly
express.
Friends and family were invited to The Elks Lodge, Sidney, on Oct. 25 for a celebration of his life.
In lieu of flowers, please
send any donations in Gary’s
memory to the Bainbridge Lions Club.

the direction of C.H. Landers

Bassett Healthcare Network
Explains Its Ebola Preparedness
COOPERSTOWN - The
Ebola Preparedness Team for
the Bassett Healthcare Network has been meeting daily
to coordinate the network’s
response, mobilize resources,
and develop plans and review
protocols to manage suspected
cases in the event a patient arrives at a network facility with
possible symptoms of Ebola.
The team is led by Dr.
Charles Hyman, chief of medicine and an infectious disease
specialist; Bertine McKenna,
Ph.D., chief operating officer;
Ruth Blackman, infection prevention specialist and senior
director of quality resources
and Brinton Muller, the network’s manager of emergency
preparedness.
“There is understandably
considerable concern among
the general public about the
Ebola outbreak,” said Dr.
Hyman. “However, it’s important to recognize that the
work we’re doing now isn’t
foreign to our hospital staff.
Infection prevention protocols
are a priority and part of our
every day processes. There is
heightened awareness because
of the Ebola virus and it is important to be prepared, but we
shouldn’t let that overshadow
other health risks prevalent in
Upstate New York right now,
including influenza and Enterovirus D68.” (Visit www.
cdc.gov for tips on flu and EVD68 prevention.)
Dr. McKenna pointed out
that hospitals around the
region are sharing their approaches and developing
systems of care within their
communities to keep patients,
employees and communities
safe and well informed.
Last week, New York
State’s Acting Commissioner
of Health issued an order
detailing the state’s requirements of hospitals for Ebola
preparedness. Dr. Hyman answers the following questions
about Bassett’s response.
Q. What steps has Bassett been taking to be prepared for handling Ebola
patients?
A: We continue to monitor
international and national developments and follow guidance from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New York
State Health Department (NYSDOH). As you can imagine,
this is a dynamic situation that
is evolving on a daily basis;
we meet daily to review new
developments, strategize our
response and assure we are as
prepared as possible across the
Bassett Healthcare Network.
Q: Are you conducting
drills to test staff response?
A: Yes. Drills are an important part of our Ebola preparedness work. The things
we need to be concerned with
include identification and separation from other people, and
use of basic personal protective equipment (PPE). So, the
drills will include testing staff
that work in patient registration, triage, inpatient, outpatient and emergency department settings on travel history
screening and the handling of
a patient who presents with
possible Ebola symptoms. We
are also providing additional
training of staff on the proper
donning and removal of PPE,
the transport and separation of
a possible Ebola patient and
more.
Q. What lessons are being
learned from the drills and
other preparations?
A: Hospitals are required
to conduct a number of emergency preparedness drills
throughout the year to test
not only infectious disease
response, but preparedness
for things like mass casualty
incidents and major weather
events. Every exercise provides additional learning and
helps us hardwire, as much
as possible, an effective response. Collaboration, team
work and communication are
vital to a successful response.
Our Ebola response drills
have gone well, but some of
the processes specific to this
virus are new and so we will
continue to drill in all of our
health care settings – registration, emergency department
and inpatient and outpatient.
Q: What’s next given the
order last week issued by
the Acting Commissioner of
Health?
A: The requirements detailed in the commissioner’s
order are stringent and ambitious. Fortunately, Bassett had
already begun much of the
work that is required for Ebola
preparedness. Most important
is the education of not only
staff, but the public and our
patients. We have thousands
of employees throughout our
network at six hospitals and
dozens of health centers and
we will continue to drill our
Ebola response.
Q: What can the public
do?
A: There is shared responsibility when it comes to public
health threats like the Ebola
outbreak. If you come to a
Bassett Healthcare Network
inpatient or outpatient facility,
expect to be asked about your
travel history and symptoms
of illness. But each of us also
bears responsibility for volunteering this information if you
have traveled to West Africa,
an area where Ebola has been
confirmed, or been in close
contact with someone who was
exposed to Ebola. I would also
encourage people interested in
the latest Ebola information
to visit the CDC’s website for
accurate, up-to-date information such as new cases, travel
restrictions, travel alerts, and
more. The CDC website also
has the latest information on
the prevalence and prevention
of influenza and EV-D68.
Neumann families, father-inlaw and mother-in-law, Robert
and Judy Michel and families;
many aunts, uncles, nieces,
nephews, cousins and friends.
Joanne was an active member of First Baptist Church,
Afton, where she was an usher
and was on the quilting and
welcoming committees. She
helped coach the Afton girls
softball team for many years.
Joanne enjoyed camping and
traveling, watching birds and
wildlife, reading and working
in her flower garden. She was
a very loving wife, mother,
grandmother and friend.
A Celebration of Life will
be held 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov.
1 at First Baptist Church,
Afton. Pastor Chris Prezorski
will officiate.
Friends of the family may
call Saturday at 2 p.m. until
the time of service at First
Baptist Church.

contributions may be made
to First Baptist Church

Halloween and Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips
NORWICH - The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office offers online access to OffenderWatch, a sex offender mapping
and notification service that
can aid citizens in avoiding
potentially dangerous homes.
In Chenango County there
are approximately 187 registered sex offenders, and the
sheriff wants you to know
where they reside so that you
can avoid those houses when
trick-or-treating.
“We do the best we can in
making sure sex offenders live
where they tell us, so it is crucial that our citizens visit our
website www.chenangosheriff.us to see who the registered
sex offenders are and where
they are living,” said Sheriff
Ernest Cutting. Citizens are
encouraged to check any addresses where they or their
family spend time. The mapping and address feature found
on the website can pinpoint exactly where an offender lives.
You will also find many
other beneficial tools such as
the ability to sign up for free
automatic e-mail notifications
informing you if an offender
moves within a specified radius of any address you register. “If you aren’t planning
on trick-or-treating in your
neighborhood, but will be in
a different neighborhood, register that address beforehand
so you know which houses to
avoid. You can register any
and all addresses where your
children spend time, for example: friends, grandparents,
or babysitters addresses,” said
Sheriff Cutting. The alerts
are in real-time and sent out
via e-mail as soon as a new
offender has registered with
the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff
Cutting said, “The benefit of
registering for this free con-
fidential e-mail alert service
is that it allows us to monitor
important addresses for you,
thereby keeping you up-todate concerning newly registered offenders and making it
unnecessary for you to have
to check important addresses
daily or even weekly.”
The website for the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office
is www.chenangosheriff.us.
Citizens should click on the
link “Sex Offender Notification & Search” and follow
the instructions to check their
neighborhood offenders. Click
on “Register for Email Alerts”
to sign up to receive free email alerts about nearby offenders. -The Sheriff’s Office

State Police to Conduct
Halloween Traffic Checks
ALBANY - In an effort to
prevent tragedies caused by
impaired drivers, the New
York State Police will conduct a special traffic enforcement effort during this Halloween weekend. Troopers
will also conduct underage
drinker identification details
statewide.
The effort will begin on
Thursday, Oct. 30 and continue through Sunday, Nov. 2.
Drivers can expect a number of sobriety checkpoints,
additional patrols, underage
drinking and sales to minor’s
enforcement this weekend.
Superintendent
Joseph
D’Amico said, “Halloween
brings a large number of children walking and riding on
our roadways. Drivers need to
be aware of this and to exer-
cise caution. Never drink and
drive. Troopers will be out on
our roads to enforce the traffic
laws, to promote driver safety
and to prevent a tragedy from
happening.”
The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration reports that nationwide,
Halloween is a particularly
deadly night due to the high
number of impaired drivers on
the roads.
During last year’s initiative
there were more than 1,300
accidents, more than 200 of
which resulted in someone being injured. Six people were
killed. Troopers also arrested
324 people for DWI and issued
more than 21,000 tickets for
speeding, distracted driving
and other traffic violations.
All crimes described in this
press release are allegations,
and suspects named are innocent until proven guilty in a
court of law.

There will be a time for questions and answers with Mayfield following the showing of
the film.
The movie event has been
strategically planned to be
the first of several community
events to inform union members and the community of
what has happened across the
country to public employees
and the unions which represent them. This is a great opportunity for union members
from across the region to come
together for critical conversation about how we must stand
up for our rights,” said Kevin
Clark, president of the Unatego Teachers Association.
“What happened in Wisconsin
can happen in New York State.
In many ways, it already has.
It’s time to step up.”
The movie event is also
sponsored by New York State
United Teachers, CSEA, AFL/
CIO, and the Tri-County Labor Council. According to the
event sponsors, the main objective of the movie event
is to facilitate opportunities
for union locals to work together to ensure that public
employees in New York will
have strength and solidarity to
thwart off efforts to impair the
rights of public employees’
unions to collectively bargain
for fair and living wages, safe
working environments, and
maintain the integrity of members’ respective professional
positions.

OTEGO - The Unatego
Teachers Association has
joined with the BainbridgeGuilford and Oneonta Teachers Associations to co-host a
screening of the documentary
movie Wisconsin Rising on
Monday, Nov. 3 at the Foothills Performing Arts Center
in Oneonta. The movie night
is free and open to the public.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. with
a time for attendees to visit
with the film’s producer, Sam
Mayfield.
The 56-minute documentary film tells the story of what
became the largest sustained
workers’ resistance in American history. In 2011 Wisconsin
was the canary in the coalmine
for America as newly elected
Republican Governor Scott
Walker suddenly stripped collective bargaining rights from
the state’s public employees,
undoing eight decades of
hard-won rights. Wisconsin
Rising catapults the viewer
into the days when Wisconsinites fought back against power
and injustice. Happening on
the heels of the revolutionary
Arab Spring and months before the Occupy movement,
Wisconsinites spontaneously
occupied their state Capitol for weeks and took to the
streets as rarely before seen in
American history.
Sam Mayfield, the film’s
producer, is a video journalist and documentarian from
Burlington, VT. Since 2004,
Mayfield has documented
stories that remain untold by
traditional media outlets. Her
work has been broadcast on
PBS, Democracy Now!, Free

The town highway super-
intendent is authorized to remove and store any vehicle in
violation of this ordinance and
the owner is liable for the cost
of removal and storage. A copy
of the “No Parking” ordinance

This is Sammy! She is a
1-year-old spayed Lab mix.
She is housebroken, friendly
and sweet. She is wonderful to
take for a walk, great on a leash,
pays attention to you, and will
even stop and come back to you
from time to time, as if to say,
“I’m just checking on you.”
She is very unhappy here at the
shelter, and you can see that all
she wants is attention and love.
Sammy will thrive in a calm,
stress free home. She can get
along with other dogs, but we
believe that she should go to a
home with no more than one
other dog. She may have some
food aggression where another
dog is concerned so that would
need close monitoring. We also
feel that Sammy loves human
contact and attention to the
point that she may consider too
many other dogs as competition. Sammy would also feel
better in a home with no small
children. Older, such as teens
would be fine. However, Sammy probably would consider
youngsters a type of stress that
she can’t handle. Sammy also
is terrified of thunderstorms.
So, you can see that she is not
a girl that can tolerate too much
to worry about.
One thing, the one, very important thing, you need to know
is that Sammy will love to
snuggle with you anytime! She
would make the absolute unparalleled companion for you!

residents on Friday, Oct. 31
from 10:30 a.m. until all food
is distributed.
The distribution will take
place in the parking lot behind Delaware Opportunities
headquarters, 35430 State
Highway 10, Hamden. The
food will be provided by the
Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. The type
of food available will not be
known until the day of distribution. Proof of income is not
required; however, informa-
tion on the number of children
and adults in each household
receiving donated food will be
requested.
Participants should bring
boxes and/or bags and dress
for the weather as there is no
indoor space available for
those waiting for food. Households must appear in person to
receive food. No notes will be
accepted for this distribution.
This distribution is limited to
Delaware County residents.
For more information contact Tammy Clark, nutrition
advocate at 746-1670 or Linda
Vausse, food bank coordinator
at 746-1685.
Anti-Hunger Services Are Now
Available in Delaware County
HAMDEN - Delaware Opportunities Inc. will have funding to deliver Nutrition Outreach and Education Program
(NOEP) services for the next
four years thanks to a contract
renewal from Hunger Solutions
New York. NOEP offers free and
confidential services to connect
hungry New Yorkers with nutrition assistance programs.
The primary goal of NOEP
is to increase the number of eligible people participating in the
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through
outreach, education, and application assistance. In addition, efforts are made to raise
awareness and expand the number of children participating in
the School Breakfast Program
and the Summer Food Service
Program. Starting July 1, 2014
through June 30, 2018, Delaware Opportunities will continue to hold the NOEP contract
and help those in need to apply
for SNAP benefits in Delaware
County.
Delaware
Opportunities
has held the NOEP contract in
Delaware County for over ten
years. During the last year, the
agency has helped 302 households receive SNAO benefits
and 92 others recertify. “We are
looking forward to four more
years of NOEP and the resulting help to eligible people in
need,” said John Eberhard, Executive Director. “We have seen
the program successfully help
families in need put food on
the table and we will continue
to work towards reaching those
who may not know about our
services yet.”
For every $5 spent on groceries using SNAP, about $10
is brought into local economies
helping to strengthen small
businesses, local grocers, and
New York’s farmers. Last year,
more than $79 million SNAP
dollars were spent in communities throughout the state because
of NOEP.
NOEP’s nationally recognized model is one of the largest
SNAP outreach programs in the
country. Delaware Opportunities employs a Nutrition Advocate, Tammy Clark, who works
to connect hungry Delaware
County residents to the SNAP
benefits that they need to feed
themselves and their families.
“Tammy educates those who
may qualify for SNAP about the
benefits of the program,” said
Eberhard. “She also can prescreen a client in-person or over
the phone and help them fill
out the SNAP application. She
also works with the Department
of Social Services on behalf of
the client, assists clients who
already receive SNAP with the
recertification process, refers
clients to other Federal support
programs, and more. Our goal
is to be available and accessible
to those in the county who need
help.”
More than three million New
Yorkers across the state receive
SNAP benefits.
Tammy Clark, can be reached
by telephone at 746-1670; email, [email protected]; or at
35430 State Highway 10, Hamden, NY 13782.
Hunger Solutions New York
is a statewide, anti-hunger organization dedicated to alleviating
hunger for all New Yorkers. For

Franklin Girls Advance To Semifinals
With 3-1 Win Over Downsville
FRANKLIN – Jess Downin
and Terry Peterson scored
opening half goals and Mariah
McNeilly added a tally in the
second half for Franklin, who
shut down Downsville striker
Kaileen Townsend and went
on to beat the Eagles, 3-1, in a
Section IV Class D quarterfinal
Saturday afternoon.
The Purple Devils advanced
to a third encounter with
Milford (16-1) Wednesday at
the Wright Soccer Campus
in Oneonta. Franklin split
two prior meetings with the
Wildcats, losing 3-2 in the
regular season before winning
in overtime, 3-2, in the TriValley League championship.
Downin scored six minutes
in, ripping a shot from 18yards out into the upper-left
corner. Seven minutes later,
Peterson volleyed a Paige
Fairchilds cross through the
hands of Downsville goalie
Kacie Banker (16 saves).
Kendra Lacey halved the
lead for Downsville with 17
minutes left in the match,
but McNeilly gave Franklin
an insurance tally when she
converted a penalty kick
with seven minutes left after
Downin was tripped up in the
box.
Franklin coach JJ Laing
praised Elizabeth Niebanck in
holding Townsend to just three
shots on goal, one of those off
a breakaway in which Purple
Devils’ goalie Alicia DeSilva
(four saves) made a great
stop.
The win did not come
without casualties. Starting
center back Emily George
suffered a knee injury and
could be lost for the rest of the
season and freshman Lacey
Cox was hit in the face with a
ball and suffered a jaw injury.
She was not ruled out for
Wednesday’s tilt.
SECTION IV CLASS D
Franklin Girls Blank
Laurens In “D” Opener
FRANKLIN – Coming off
the Tri-Valley girls’ soccer
championship, the Franklin
girls’ soccer team opened
Section IV Class D play last
Wednesday with a 4-0 victory
over visiting Laurens.
Jessica Downin scored a goal
and assisted on two others for
the Purple Devils (15-1-1).
Sabra Warner got Franklin
on the board sixteen minutes
into play when she corralled
a rebound off her own shot
(which was started by a
Downin cornerkick) and stuck
it past Laurens keeper Courtney
Sherry.
Ten minutes later, Downin
blasted a free kick from 25 yards
out that kissed the left post and
into the back of the net.
Mariah McNeilly gave
Franklin a 3-0 lead five minutes
later when her 25-yard shot
deflected off an unfortunate

Bainbridge-Guilford built a
3-0 halftime lead and went on
for a 3-1 victory over visiting
Walton in the opening round
of the Section IV Class C

Tuesday (Oct. 21).
Played in a steady rain, the
Midstate Athletic Conference
champion Bobcats (16-2) got
first-half goals from Trevor
Halaquist, Jake Cuozzo and
Dan Norris and had several
other opportunities.
Halaquist scored ten minutes
into the match off a feed
from Norris. Cuozzo scored
unassisted nine minutes later
then Norris added the third
when Walton goalie Dylan
Walley could not handle a
slippery ball, pouncing on the
loose orb for the easy tally.
Nathan Pieper scored on a
penalty kick thirteen minutes
into the second half to account
for Walton’s lone goal.

go-ahead goals over that span of
regulation and went on for the
2-1 victory in the quarterfinals
of the Section IV Class C boys’
soccer tournament Friday
afternoon.
Jake Cuozzo gave B-G a 1-0
lead with 2:12 left in the first
half and that held until 5:29
left in regulation when S-VE’s
Brazilian foreign exchange
student, Joao Rodrigues, scored
the tying tally.
The Panthers (16-1) scored
the game-winner on Tyler
Hodges’ conversion off a
cornerkick from about three
yards out with under two

Constitution Pipeline Receives Final
Federal Environmental Review
(Continued from Page 1)
natural gas supply options via
an interconnect with the existing Iroquois Pipeline.
“We look forward to the issuance of the final FERC Order, as well as other applicable
approvals we need to begin
construction on this pipeline
so that we can deliver muchneeded additional natural gas
supply to New York and New
England as quickly as possible,” the project sponsors
said.
The FERC Environmental
Impact Statement (EIS) assesses the potential environmental
effects of the construction and
operation of the projects in
accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The EIS
concluded that environmental
impacts would be reduced to
“less than significant levels”
with the implementation of
proposed mitigation measures
by the company and FERC.
The FERC served in a coordinating role with relevant
federal and state agencies in
developing its final EIS. The
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers, the Federal Highway Administration,
and the New York State Department of Agriculture and
Markets also participated as
cooperating agencies in the
preparation of the EIS.
The FERC’s 90-day federal
authorization decision deadline for the project is set for
Jan. 22, 2015.
The Constitution Pipeline is designed to transport
enough natural gas each day
to serve approximately 3 million homes in the U.S. Northeast. The project involves the
construction and operation of
124 miles of 30-inch-diameter
pipeline from natural gas supply areas in northeast Pennsylvania and connecting with existing transmission pipelines
in Schoharie County.
Constitution Pipeline Company Constitution
Pipeline
Company, LLC is owned
by subsidiaries of Williams
Partners L.P. (NYSE:WPZ),
Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE:COG), Piedmont
Natural Gas Company, Inc.
(NYSE:PNY), and WGL
Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:WGL).
The 124-mile pipeline project
is proposed to connect domestic natural gas production
in northeastern Pennsylvania
with northeastern markets by
late 2015 or 2016. Additional
information about the Constitution Pipeline can be found

SIDNEY - The kick off for
the 11th annual Tri-Town Relay For Life will be held on
Wednesday, Nov. 12 at the
United Methodist Church,
Liberty St., Sidney. Everyone
is invited to attend. Our theme
this year will be “Heros For A
Cure.” Refreshments will be
served starting at 5:30 p.m.
followed by the meeting.
Relay For Life is a signature activity of the American
Cancer Society. This year we
have several new things which
will be taking place with our
Relay. Relay For Life is an
event to raise money for cancer research, education, advocacy, and services for cancer
patients. It is a fun time for
families and friends, and yet it
is a serious time as we honor
survivors for their courage
and strength and remember
loved ones lost to cancer. This
is a time when the community
can come together to do their
part to fight cancer. The Relay
For Life will be held at General Clinton Park in Bainbridge
on May 9, 2015.

Bainbridge Chamber to Honor Dave
Worden on Sat., Nov. 8
duties as a member of the volunteer fire department, he has
been serving as Fire District
Commissioner for nine years.
Dave was also instrumental
in the effort to provide two
monuments in honor of the
vounteers with the Bainbridge
Fire Department and Emergency Squad.
Dave received recognition
from his fellow fighters in 2000
and again 2014 when he was
named Fireman of the Year.
Dave’s commitment to efforts with the volunteer fire
department is a natural progression. His parents, Lee and
Shirley Worden, moved to
Guilford when Dave was a year
old. Soon after, Lee became a
member of the Guilford Fire
Department. Dave’s brother
Jonathan was assistant chief
in Guilford in the mid 1980s.
His uncle, Paul Worden, is a
former fire chief in Franklin
and Paul’s son, Tom Worden,
is currently fire chief.
Dave graduated from the
Bainbridge-Guilford
High
School in 1980, and prior
to moving to Bainbridge he
served four years with the
Guilford Fire Department.
Dave recalls the first fire he
responded to, a plane crash
the night he was voted into
membership.
As for the most memorable
fire, he said it would have to
be the Mirabito fire on Cart-
wright Ave. in Sidney, four
months prior to the birth of his
daughter Ashley.
Dave’s commitment to his
community has also included
serving for 12 years on the
Bainbridge Village Planning
Board, four years on the Bainbridge Village Zoning Board
of Appeals and safety coordinator for the 2014 General
Clinton Canoe Regatta.
Dave’s children include
daughters Ashley Dudden
and husband Ben and Melissa
Fuller and husband Matt; and
grandson, Aiden Fuller.
Looking to Bainbridge’s future, Dave said he would like
to see more industry move
into the area, and on a more
personal level, he would encourage more people to “get
involved with our service
organizations.”
In addition to honoring
Dave Worden as the Citizen
the Year at the Commitment to
Community dinner, the Bainbridge Chamber of Commerce
will recognize Pine Ridge
Grocery with their Business
of the Year award.
The Commitment to Community Dinner will be held
Saturday, Nov. 8 at the Cream
of the Crop, Rt. 7, Bainbridge.
There will be a social hour at 6
p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m.
Tickets are available at
NBT Bank and Bob’s Diner.
The ticket deadline is Oct. 31.

when you purchased those
containers. They also would
like to associate themselves
with all types of organizations
and fundraisers to help raise
money for their benefits. They
will advertise the benefit and
bank the donations for them.

fundraiser or an organization,
they ask that you stop and see
them to sign up to start receiving donations.
If you have deposit-type
recyclables that you may normally just throw out, please
consider dropping them off
at Wheel of Redemption to
be used for a contribution to
a local charity. They will be
running various specials on
the wheel, which the customer
will have the opportunity to
win with just a “spin” of the
wheel.
Greg, who was born and
raised in Sidney, and his wife
Susan are excited about starting their own business here

the auto parts business for
nearly 40 years and together
Greg and Susan would like to
serve old friends/customers
and are anxious to make new
