20-Year-Old From Massachusetts
Driver Killed In Richfield Crash
RICHFIELD SPRINGS – Troopers today identified Kaitlin A. Mercier, 20, of Huntington, Mass., as the driver who was killed at 7:30 a.m. Thursday in a single-car crash on Route 20 at Brighton Corners, Town of Richfield. An autopsy is pending.
Mercier and the single passenger in the car, Amanda Conley, 22, of Brattleboro, Vt., were en route home from a visit to Niagara Falls, police said. Conley broke her right leg, and was transported to Bassett Hospital for treatment.
The investigation determined that a 1998 Buick was traveling east on US Route 20 when the vehicle drifted into the southbound shoulder and struck the end of the guiderail causing the vehicle to become airborne and then rolled over.
The vehicle came to rest on its passenger side partially submerged in two feet of water in a nearby stream just of the roadway. Conley was able to exit the vehicle.

Panel Depicting Fox Hospital History
Ready, Telling Of 114-Year Contribution
ONEONTA – After 10 years in the making, the pictorial history wall of A.O. Fox Hospital is complete.
The three-panel wall features 4- by 8-foot lighted panels, using a timeline spanning 114 years. The display gives a pictorial history from the laying of the first cornerstone in 1900 through 2014.
The project was originally conceived by auxiliary co-presidents Bev Ballard and Margaret Henry in 2004. A committee was later formed with fellow auxiliary members Joanne Burdick, Marge O’Mara and Lois Herrick.
In 2010, before the work could get started, Henry became ill and passed away. “As a much loved and longtime auxilian, many memorial donations were given to the auxiliary in her name,” says Ballard. Ballard requested that the memorial funds received be used to continue the legacy of the auxiliary, by planning a pictorial history of the first 50 years of the hospital.
It was also decided that the first panel in the display be dedicated to the late Margaret Henry. Last April, the planning committee, lost another member, Lois Herrick.
