Our Opinion: Hall voters will have tough decisions to make
The Baseball Hall of Fame’s annual Induction Weekend is by far the biggest event in Cooperstown each year. This weekend, Cincinnati shortstop Barry Larkin and Cubs third baseman, the late Ron Santo, will join the elite fraternity.
Roses to Cooperstown Youth Baseball and the town of
Hartwick for reaching an agreement on a lease of town
property that will allow CYB to build its new facility for
baseball and softball.

Our Opinion: Board made right choices
The village board made two good decisions Monday night. Both votes required a tiebreaker from Mayor Jeff Katz.
