• Headed down to the Silo in Greene tonight for Commerce Chenango’s annual dinner (an early congrats to honorees SFCU and Dave Burrell!). Ms. Stagnaro is doing the actual reporting on the event, so my function at these … functions …. is purely ornamental.

Home is Where the Art is! Two talented Norwich grads are coming home to roost this weekend with events over at the Chenango County Council of the Arts. First up is the “Best of Show” winner from last year’s Member’s Exhibit, Edmond Caputo. I can’t wait to see what he’s going to fill the gallery with. The opening reception for that (free to the public) is Friday night at 5. Saturday night, gifted musician Megan Higley Phillips returns to the Norwich stage for a special concert in the Council’s Chamber Music series. Call 336-2787 to get tickets for that one. It’s great to see the organization highlighting the talents and accomplisments of local artists.

• I wish new, New Berlin Mayor Terry Potter all the luck in the world of ridding that village’s downtown of the old commercial building that’s been condemned since 2008. Not only for the good of the village and his nascent mayorship, of course, but also so I don’t have to publish that same $#%^ Tyler Murphy photo of it ever again.
