Clinton is the focus of local author's magazine


NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Clinton is highlighted in the latest edition of "Unsung Heroes on the Backroads of America," a magazine written by local author Jim Furney.

Furney chose Clinton for his 7th edition because he recently moved there to be closer to his son. He says the community has taken him in and he's found some true heroes.

One of them, Vilas "V.J." Madore. Furney says Madore was a firefighter for more than three decades and head of security at Hamilton College. It's people like Madore that inspired Furney to publish his magazines.

The 84-year-old author says for the 8th edition of Unsung Heroes, he has his sights set on Lee Center and New Hartford after that.
