Plan to join the celebration
Plans for an end-of-the-season celebration for Cooperstown area residents have come a long way since we endorsed the idea four weeks ago.
Nothing like firsthand experience
I have been covering PumpkinFest for five years. It is one of the more unique events I get to cover each year. Typically, I am asking paddlers what it is like to race giant pumpkins in Otsego Lake.

Enjoy the weekend events
It has been a really nice summer, but before we know it, chillier weather will be here.
Help to Celebrate Cooperstown
We think the mayor and village board’s suggestion of a weekend for the residents to ”Celebrate Cooperstown” is a good one.
Watch out for CVS
School will be starting next week and each year technology is integrated more and more into the classroom.
Patience will be required
Cooperstown students return to school in two weeks. and one of the biggest changes the teachers, parents and students encounter may be making their way through a construction zone.
Well done, Sarah
Former Cooperstown Central School student and athlete Sarah Groff missed a bronze finish in the women’s triathlon at the Olympic Games by just 10 seconds.
Spraying should stop
We were dismayed to learn the New York State Department of Transportation considers the use of a glysophate-based herbicide on unwanted plants on the Route 80 right-of-way along the western shore of Otsego Lake to be an “acceptable risk.” We believe it poses an unacceptable risk.
Good luck, Sarah
Beginning at 9 a.m. London time on Saturday, 55 women will chase Olympic gold in the women’s Triathlon. They will swim 1,500 meters, bike 40 kilometers and run 10,000 meters.
