Re: “Bringing Back Binghamton

There never was a "p". The oldest maps I have call it "Binghamton", the same as the city in New York. The area was named for a developer named Bingham; there's still a street there that bears his name. The correct pronunciation is BING-um-ton, with the accent on the first syllable. The news media have consistently mispronounced and misspelled it until the incorrect version has been accepted -- dare I say? -- like one of Goebbels' lies.

Re: “Miss McKellar Lake

Vance,



Almost certainly the picture was from 1964. The CA probably ran it again in 1989 in the "25 Years Ago" column. By then, nobody would go swimming in McKellar Lake.

Too bad he didn't spell out "gubernatorial" for the Flyer staff!
