A merger between Tops and Price Chopper/Market 32 that was approved in 2020 will bring back a nostalgic grocery store chain to two different locations in our area: one in Otsego County and the other in Chenango County.
For such a fun, cute, and carefree name, snowstorm "Izzy" sure did leave behind more snow than we bargained for in Oneonta! It's interesting how this storm rolled out in our area because the National Weather Service in Binghamton wouldn't lay claim to any snowstorm total until Sunday.
Chenango, Delaware, and Otsego County are forgoing contact tracing and instead concentrating on helping people get vaccinated and tested for COVID as needed. Otsego DOH has also stopped reporting active case numbers since they feel that they can no longer accurately report.
Have you heard about the movement, #BettyWhiteChallenge, to honor her legacy of being an avid supporter of animal-related causes throughout her life? The idea is to donate $5 to a local rescue or animal shelter on what would have been the actress' 100th birthday, January 17. We have a list of great local animal shelters in our Central NY region to help you with this.
