Going back at least 20 years (maybe even as many as 200+ years) there has never been a State of the County Address given outside the Chambers of the Legislature. It is past protocol and historical which should mean something. Chairman Shane Broadwell has decided to scrap past protocol and history and move the State of the County Address to Oswego County CiTi in Mexico on Wednesday May 2.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Oswego Public Library, this message is to clarify some of the confusion and misunderstanding about the relationship between the Oswego Public Library (known as the “Oswego School District Public Library”) and the Enlarged City School District of Oswego.
The Friends of the Oswego Library respectfully asks the citizens of the Oswego City School District to support the Oswego S.D. Public Library by visiting their polling locations on Tuesday May 15, and voting yes for the library budget.
No surprise here as who you should put your money on. That’s right double down on Special Interest Groups. This was proven on Thursday April 12, at the monthly Oswego County Legislative meeting. A resolution asking for the use of ATVs on County Route 26 in Parish was presented for approval. First up was a public hearing on the resolution.
On Thursday, April 12, 2018, in the Oswego County Legislative Chambers, the Oswego County Legislative body passed resolution # 4. The significance of this resolution is that it approved the hiring of a firm from Saratoga Springs to come to Oswego County and train up to 50 county employees a course called “Basics of Grant Writing.”
I am helping a disabled young man who was injured in a pedestrian/vehicle accident November 19 around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of East Bridge and East First streets in Oswego, NY. With bills for ambulance, hospital etc., mounting the pedestrian is in need of witnesses to come forward to verify what happened.
A very special Thank you to Assemblyman Will Barclay and staff and to Senator Patty Richie and staff for a job well done. It took some time. A study had to be done to see whether or not an arrow was needed.
Earth Day will be celebrated around the world on Sunday, April 22. In Oswego County we are blessed with beautiful lakes and rivers, parks and wilderness areas that provide year-round recreation to residents and visitors alike. Unfortunately, too many people have gotten the impression that it’s OK to litter because someone else will be there to pick it up. The Oswego County Green Team is a volunteer group of citizens who organized a few years ago to reduce litter in Oswego County.
The Fresh Air Fund looks forward to celebrating National Volunteer Week every year. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our inspiring volunteers, hosts and supporters in the New York Lakes Region. Their dedication to our Fresh Air children truly embodies the spirit of National Volunteer Week, which is from April 15 to 21 this year. We have learned that a summer can last a lifetime.
I am very late in getting this in, due to illness. However….. even being late I wanted to make sure that I took the time to thank everyone that took part in the third annual food drive hosted by Tops Friendly Market in Fulton. Manager Jim and his crew have stepped up for the third year in a row to make sure that some of the needs in our area were met.
