This could be huge for Schoharie

6/23/2022

A Schenectady-based developer that promises to put community first is looking to turn 48 acres it owns off I-88 and Route 30, Schoharie, into a 453,600-square foot warehouse and office facility.
Highbridge Development hasn’t marketed the site it bought last July yet; first they wanted to bring their concept to the Planning Board, co-founder John Roth said Tuesday.
The proposed project would be located across Route 30 from the Park and Ride and Dunkin Donuts.
The warehouse would be home to one but no more that three distribution centers, depending on “what we find when we go out to the marketplace,” Mr. Roth said.
Highbridge was formed as a one-stop shop in 1999, M ...

Long Walk Home taking vets across Route 20

6/23/2022

It’s a long walk, crossing the country on historic Route 20, but retired Marine Corps veterans Justin Lehew and Coleman Kinzer are up to the challenge.
They’re walking from Boston to Oregon as a way to raise awareness about still-missing service personnel—and as a way to raise funds to continue searching for their remains through the organization History Flight Inc.
They’re calling their journey the Long Road Home and it is: 3,365 miles across 12 states.
They won’t reach Oregon until November.
After walking through Schoharie County Sunday through Tuesday, when they crossed the Schoharie-Otsego County line into Cherry Valley, they’re hoping the rest of the trip is… ...

Joshua Project's free lunches start Monday

6/23/2022

Contrary to the old slogan, there is such a thing as a free lunch.
The Joshua Project’s Summer Lunch program begins in Cobleskill, Middleburgh, Richmondville and Central Bridge on Monday.
The noon meals are free and open to all.
A story in last week’s Times-Journal reported that Central Bridge wouldn’t have the program, but that news was incorrect.
The faith-based Joshua Project started Summer Lunch in 2013 to help children who depended on meals at schools for 10 months of the year.
“It’s open to everybody,” said Joshua Project President Pat Costello. “It’s proven to be very effective in the villages they serve.”
Summer Lunch runs through the end of ...

Cobleskill's PD chief retiring

6/23/2022

After three years as Cobleskill’s Police Chief, Jeff Brown is retiring.
The Cobleskill Village Board accepted his resignation, effective July 29, at Tuesday night’s meeting.
Chief Brown has been on the force for 30 years and became chief when Rich Bialkowski left to take a position at SUNY Cobleskill in 2019.
“I’m devastated by it, but after 30 years. . .” Mayor Becky Terk said.
Chief Brown, 53, said he told village officials he’d “give them three years” when he became chief.
Now is a good time to step down, he said.
“The department’s in good shape,” he said. “We have really good people, and with minimum preparation I can bow out.”
He became ...
