Voorheesville

The second season for the Berne-Knox-Westerlo girls’ and Voorheesville boys’ basketball teams started with a bang this week for play in the Section II, Class C bracket.

VOORHEESVILLE — Frederick “Fritz” Raymond John Herzog, a father of five and grandfather of seven, died unexpectedly on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020. He was 85.

He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1952 to 1956. He retired from the New York State Department of Transportation.

In back-to-back court filings, Stewart’s Shops states that its lawsuit against the village of Voorheesville should not be dismissed because the village’s adoption of a new zoning code was “far from an ordinary municipal comprehensive planning and zoning enactment process.” Voorheesville responded, again, that the case should be dismissed because Stewart’s latest argument does nothing to alter “the conclusion that the Village lawfully changed its zoning code for the district in which the subject property is located.”

Stewart’s Shops

Stewart’s announced in September 2019 it was suing Voorheesville, claiming the village was targeting the company to keep it from building a new shop in the village. The village, in its first response to the lawsuit, asked that the suit be tossed. 

Depending on the source, some New Scotland water customers can pay as much as $26 per 1,000 gallons of water while others pay as little as $4.50. Recently, because their own service had to be shut down, the 127 customers in the Northeast Water District have been paying close to double what they normally pay for water.

After assuring residents that it would seek all options to help lower the costs of a proposed $3.6 million sewer system, the village of Voorheesville began to make good on that promise this week when the state announced that the village had received a $400,000 grant. 

The Mountainview Evangelical Free Church in Voorheesville began as a Bible-study group 40 years ago. Thirty years ago, the study group got its own church, and, in September, amid dwindling membership, the church shut down. 

Contemporary Christian artist Dave Pettigrew will be at at Saint Matthew’s Church on Nov. 10, for a concert to benefit local addiction and recovery agencies.

Stewart’s Shops has announced that, for the first time in company history, it is suing a municipality because of what it claims is a “targeted effort to prevent Stewart’s” from building a new shop on property it owns at 112 Maple Ave. in the village.
