Cobleskill-Richmondville students united with hundreds of thousands on Wednesday to memorialize those killed in the Parkland, Florida shootings a month ago.
About 100 high school students stepped out of class at 10am to stand around the flagpole, while middle school students gathered in Golding auditorium for a period of silence.
The March 14 vigils marked the one-month anniversary of 17 students and staff killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.
Organizers Emily Benton, Sarah Jones and Dan Bailey stood in front of the C-R students a ...
Cobleskill-Richmondville is looking to close a mammoth gap between costs and revenue in the school district’s 2018-19 budget.
The gap––$866,459––may be closed by further cutting and possibly a raise in state aid.

The four-p ...
Just how bad has March’s weather been?
So bad that Schoharie County has taken the unprecedented move of pushing back the no-maintenance date on seasonal use roads until May 1.
Normally, towns try to get the roads open by April 1.
But Department of Public works Commissioner Dan Crandell told supervisors Friday that with snow accumulations of as much as 46 inches in some places—and that’s before what’s forecast for this Wednesday into Thursday—most of them are going to need more time.
In some places, Mr. Crandell said, there’s five or six feet ...
Blenheim and Gilboa are the winners in a $70 million relicensing agreement announced Wednesday by the New York Power Authority for its Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Project, tax-exempt since its construction was authorized in 1969.
The NYPA and Schoharie County towns began negotiating the terms of the 50-year relicensing deal several years ago.
Just two weeks ago, those negotiations had reached an impasse.
But the agreement unveiled Wednesday calls for the NYPA to provide more than $70 million in benefits to the area over the next half-century.
