Our Opinion: Celebrate Back in the swing Flag Day
Today, June 14, is Flag Day. It is a day to celebrate “Old Glory,” the “Stars and Stripes” or the “Star Spangled Banner” – whatever you wish to call it _ and all for which it stands.
Our Opinion: Board made right decision
We applaud the board of trustees’ decisions last week to eliminate the amount of chemical pesticides, particularly weed killers used in or near the village.
Our Opinion: Roses
Roses and good luck to the Cooperstown Hawkeyes. The team’s home opener is Wednesday, June 6, on the village’s historic Doubleday Field. The Hawkeyes play in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League founded in the fall of 2010 by eight summer baseball teams located across upstate New York. We believe it’s great Cooperstown – considered by many to be the home of baseball – has a team it can call its own.
Our Opinion: Bassett should know better
Last week, Bassett Healthcare tried to take over two of the village’s public parking lots for the exclusive use of its employees. The lots are on East Lake Road near the entrance to Fairy Springs Park, and Bassett put up signs that said the lots are for Bassett Healthcare staff parking only.
Our Opinion: Support the Quiz Team
The Cooperstown high school quiz team will take on faculty in a live quiz showdown on Sunday. The event is being held to help raise money so members of the team can compete nationally in Washington, D.C. Donations will be accepted at the door. The Quiz Bowl is set to begin at 7 p.m. in the Sterling Auditorium and we encourage members of the public to go support the team in its academic endeavors.
Our Opinion: Vote for Pohl
Cooperstown Central School graduate Phil Pohl is among 10 finalist in the Lowe’s Senior Class Award. First off congratulations, Phil. You have always shined on and off the baseball diamond. Pohl graduated at the top of his class and was a two-time Class C New York state Player-of-the-Year while at CCS.
Our Opinion: Put an end to the chemicals
The use of chemical herbicides and pesticides was the main topic at a meeting of the village’s environmental conservation committee meeting Tuesday morning.
Our Opinion: Town board made right decision
Last week, the Otsego town board voted to grant the village’s Gateway Project “limited zoning immunity.” The decision nullified a stop work order issued to the project earlier by Otsego Town Code Enforcement Officer Hank Schecher.
