Berne

Residents had questions about pollution, the tax base, and the potential for the sheriff's office to buy a piece of the East Berne property, the potential location of intermunicipal training facilities and a new firehouse.

The renovations will make the former hotel more compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, with better access for people using wheelchairs.

Teenagers cast their lenses on the Hilltowns in December as part of a community arts project spearheaded by Pastor Wendy Cook of the Helderberg Evangelical Lutheran Church and Altamont artist Laura Provo-Parker. Their images were mostly printed in black and white and are on display in the Berne library.

The Capital Region felt the brunt of a large winter storm on Thursday and Friday that stirred the pity of the nation as many, sometimes dozens of inches of snow covered the already buried ground. Children and their parents donned ice skates and brought sleds to the Berne Town Park on Saturday, Feb. 15, where they played and more flakes fell throughout the morning. Just a few miles away, South Berne had been given 27 inches of snow from the storm by Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Albany.

Dawn Jordan, who led the study of hydrofracking for the town, took her seat at the board table this month — a position she lost in the 2011 election.

BERNE — The two repeat candidates to lead Berne — Republican William Keal and Democrat Kevin Crosier — have differences on whether the town should allow fracking and on how business should be encouraged, but they agree the town should have no problem meeting the state-set tax cap.

BERNE — Joseph Golden, 71, said he is running for continuity on the board, “to finish up and keep moving things forward,” he said. “It’s kind of an enjoyable job.” Golden spent four years in the United States Marines Corps and is a retired teacher of economics and government at Schoharie Central.
