Margaretville business owner David Budin had originally filed the lawsuit in Delaware County Court claiming he owned, through “adverse possession” a section of the theater property that would be utilized for the renovations. The theater property borders the parcel where Budin lives and the storefront where he operates Del-Sports.

O’Connell is ‘pitcher perfect’ in MCS victory over Windham

By John Bernhardt
When Windham’s Mike Iacono lofted a pop-up near the line between home plate and first base in Thursday’s high school game at Margaretville, there were three Blue Devils’ infielders who might have been able to make the catch. Calling off his teammates, nobody doubted it was Margaretville pitcher Patrick O’Connell who would finish the play. When O’Connell’s mitt closed around the ball, the sophomore hurler had accomplished the improbable, recording the final put out of a pitching rarity, a perfect game. Not a single Windham Warrior reached base against O’Connell during the entire seven-inning game.
