There was a hearing held Wednesday in the matter of a case against Oswego County Clerk George Williams but the plaintiff’s attorney said he had no idea a hearing had been scheduled.
Attorney Scott Chatfield, who represents APS Information Systems in a case against Williams, said late Wednesday that he had no idea a hearing had been scheduled until he received a telephone call from Oswego County Supreme Court Judge Norman Seiter asking why he wasn’t in court.
APS is suing Williams for his policy of charging fees to research criminal court records. State law allows a $5 fee to be charged for each name searched for every two years provided the search is certified. APS alleges that Williams has been charging for all searches, including those that are not certified.
The Oswego Clearview Squirt hockey team traveled to SUNY Morrisville recently to compete in the season-ending John Abbott Memorial (JAM) Tournament.
The team capped off a successful 21-13-4 year by making it to the tournament championship, before falling to Camillus 1 by the score of 2-0.
The Oswego Squirts defeated Camillus 2 5-1, defeated Fulton 4-1, lost to Valley 6-1, and defeated Camillus 1 2-1 to garner a tournament high 12.5 points in the five-point scoring system to advance to the championship.
“Our coaches couldn’t be more proud of the way our team played in this tournament and throughout the season,” Oswego Head Coach Eric Koproski said of his team. “The strides that these kids made and the work ethic they showed in every game and practice were tremendous.”
Oswego County Legislator Amy Tresidder said Thursday that she is considering a run for the New York State Senate seat currently held by Patty Ritchie.
Tresidder said she has filed with the Board of Elections for a spot on the ballot for the 48th Senate District.
“I am strongly considering challenging her,” Tresidder said of her prospective bid against incumbent Ritchie. “I have not yet made an official announcement.”
Tresidder said she has the support of the three counties that encompass the district: Oswego, St. Lawrence and Jefferson.
