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.
