Quilts, photography and woodwork are just a handful of arts and crafts community members will see this weekend at the 20th Annual Eagle Mills Craft Show. The four-day show is set to kick off Saturday, with more than 150 juried crafters. Eagle Mills owner John Arnao said the event is jammed packed with activities the whole family can enjoy. "There will be good food, and lots of good fun," Arnao said. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, both this weekend and next. Admission is free. Parking is $5, and a portion of the proceeds is being donated to the Broadalbin-Perth 2015 senior class. Emily Reed, Melanie Tatlock, and Gavrielle Filanova of Amsterdam cross the wooden bridge at Eagle Mills

By CAROLINE MURRAY Recorder News Staff MAYFIELD -- An online petition is circulating among a group of village residents unhappy about a proposed change in a local zoning law, which would potentially rezone about nine parcels along Route 30 for commercial use.

Braves' Hart breaks rushing record in rout

Monday, September 15, 2014 - Updated: 10:22 AM

By MICHAEL KELLY @ByMichaelKelly FONDA -- Senior running back Pat Hart did what he needed to do Saturday afternoon at John G. Boshart Field, and the rest of the Fonda-Fultonville Braves followed suit. Through the rain, F-F topped Cairo-Durham, 47-6, and Hart broke the Braves' all-time rushing record with a monster performance. Needing 116 yards to break Mike Visscher's 34-year-old record, Hart had exactly that number late in the first quarter of the Sectio ...

Rams rediscover spark in first win

Monday, September 15, 2014 - Updated: 10:22 AM

After Friday night's easy win against Mohonasen, I think it's safe to say that the Amsterdam Rugged Rams' subpar Week 1 performance against Cornwall in the Carrier Dome was far closer to an early dress rehearsal than the polished final product. From the opening drive of Friday's 37-13 win, the Rams' starters were crisp on both sides of the ball, far better in the trenches and generally looked like they'd put their 43-point season-opening blowout loss behin ...
