The one constant in this world, we are reminded every day, is change. Change was everywhere in 2012, both right here in Chenango County and in the world at large. We saw it in nearly every facet of life – politics, business, education, religion – everywhere you looked there was a new obstacle to surmount, a new challenge to solve.
While the human race saw sweeping global changes in 2012, Chenango County was a microcosm of the world around us – reacting to both internal and external forces, dealing with triumphs and tragedies, enjoying successes and mourning failures. Through it all, we maintained our sense of community pride, we faced adversity with wit and innovation, we fought to maintain the status quo even as we took risks which could irrevocably alter it.
We made Progress.
Each year, during the last week in January, The Evening Sun publishes a five-day series of special sections devoted to, and called, Progress. In today’s paper, you’ll find Sections 1 and 2, followed by two more each day this week. Every year this highly-anticipated publication gives readers a look at how local businesses and civic organizations fared in the year past, and forecasts what lies in store for the year ahead.
Progress Chenango our premier publication, a comprehensive picture of the Land of the Bullthistle as seen through the eyes of the individuals and groups who are guiding the course of our future – and making Progress every day.
