Oakfield cuts ribbon on new 500K gallon water tower

post by Howard B. Owens in Oakfield

Officials in Oakfield today held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new water tower serving both the village and the town.

The $3.5 million project was eight years in the making. The community replaced a 99-year-old, 125,000 gallon tank.

Building the tank was partially financed through federal grants. A bond covers $2.6 million of the expense.

The new tank holds 500,000 gallon of water.

Through use of a block grant, will soon have a new water use measurement system in place. Rather than meter readers, each water user will have a radio-read system installed from a company called Sensus that will allow instant reading of water usage, including reports, if needed, on hour-by-hour usage.  Officials will have instant access to customer usage if a customer has questions about their account.

Pictured above: Jeremy Delyser, from Clark Patterson Lee, Joyce Grazioplene, retired clerk, Rick Pastecki, former mayor, Assemblyman Steve Hawley, and Legislator (and former mayor), Ray Cianfrini.  (Note: Several more people participated in the actual ribbon cutting, but my photos from the ribbon cutting are unusable. My old, cheap wide angle lens didn't focus properly).

Photos: Chamber conducts annual ag tour

post by Howard B. Owens in agriculture, chamber of commerce, Oakfield

The Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual ag tour this morning, starting with a visit to BCA Ag Technologies in Oakfield (that visit was co-hosted by Z&M Ag and Turf).

During the first visit, tour participants learned about all the high-tech ways farmers more precisely and efficiently put seeds in the ground, using GPS and computer-programed seeding mechanisms.

After BCA, the group moved onto the Cargill facility in Batavia, which produces nutrients for dairy cattle throughout the Northeast, and finally they visited M&M Meats to learn about beef processing.

"For those of who are involved in it, it's pretty easy to lose track of and forget how big ag is and the fact that it is the number-one industry in the county, so it's great to get the folks who make decisions and impact what we do to understand what we do," said Keith Conway, chairman of the chamber's ag committee and store manager for Z&M in Oakfield.

Benjamin Flansburg, BCA.

Oakfield-Alabama scores 33 against Pembroke for second win

To whatever degree the Pembroke Dragons might have had a chance against the Oakfield-Alabama Hornets on Friday night, too many scoring opportunities were snuffed out by turnovers.

Most of the Dragon's possessions ended with a fumble or interception.

"We're always emphasizing creating turnovers," said O-A Head Coach Brian Palone after the Hornet's 33-6 win on their home field. "We work on it a lot. So I was happy to see that we were able to execute."

The Hornets are now 2-1 and Pembroke falls to 0-3.

On offense, the Hornets were pretty much able to have their way.

QB Alan Chatt was 16 for 19 passing and 199 yards. He tossed touchdown completions of 55, 17 and two yards. He also rushed for 85 yards and a TD on eight carries.

Ryan Emery rushed for 33 yards and a TD on eight carries and Jon Harris gained 47 yards on five carries.

Receiver Reice Woodward had a big night with two touchdowns on four receptions for 85 yards.

Defensively, Pat Caprio had six tackles, Harris, five, Jake Valletta and Tyler Hamm, four each, Chatt had two interceptions, Casey Arnold, two sacks, Trent Stack, an interception and Emery had a sack.

Collin Scheiber was one for three on point after attempts. His make was the first of his kicking career.

"I'm very proud of way we finished the game," Palone said. "We talked all week about finishing, especially after last week. We weren't able to finish and we let it get away from us, but tonight they were really focused for four quarters of football. They really finished. I'm proud of the way they executed at the end."

Next up for O-A, Elba/Byron-Bergen, who takes a 2-0 record into today's match up with Notre Dame (0-2).

Pembroke will host Notre Dame next week.

Top photo: Alan Chatt picks a Mitch Lewter pass in the first quarter. The pass was intended for Dakota Swimline.
