Letters to the Editor: April 8, 2010


The students of Cooperstown Central School are lucky to have such a strong, supportive community full of dedicated and talented individuals and educators.áIt’s also encouraging to witness students working together for a common goal and having such a good time, as well. I hope everyone had a great time and thank you for your continued support.

Thanks to NBT Bank A huge thank you from the staff and Board of the Susquehanna SPCA to NBT Bank for their assistance in our Spring Bounty Basket raffle. The branches in Cooperstown, Oneonta, Edmeston, Cherry Valley, and Richfield Springs displayed the baskets for the month of March and the staff at each of the banks sold the raffle tickets. The raffle was a great success we sold over 1000 tickets due in great part to the enthusiasm of the NBT employees. Many thanks to everyone involved and particularly to Chris Amos and Rich McCaffery for conceiving the idea.

Event is a success

The Cooperstown girls basketball program would like to thank all the individuals and families who participated in our shoot-a-thon.

We raised enough maoney to have two teams play in the Duke tournament through the Oneonta Boys and Girls Club. We will also have the option of entering two teams in the girls summer league at the Clark Sports Center. The top free throw shooters were Holli Erkson, 80 percent, and Sarah Morosco and Katelynn Kiuber each at 72 percent. The top fundraisers were Maggie Hall, Lucy Ford and Sarah Morosco. Thank you all for your participation and support.

Cooperstown varsity girls basketball coach

School should be held accountable

One event does not define the character of a village. Yet at the same time, we would be remiss to ignore any factor that may have influenced last Friday’s shooting. And since the perpetrator and victim are both high school students, CCS should emerge as a focal point.

  • Our Readers' Opinions After living in the western southern tier for 10 years, my wife and I decided to visit the Hall of Fame today, June 20, before moving out of the area in a few weeks. We enjoyed the museum, but parking in Cooperstown proved to be a formidable gauntlet.
