Letters to the Editor: February 18, 2010


Jeff recognizes what’s important to village life and he respects what already works well here. But he can think strategically about Cooperstown’s unique heritage, a key quality in our next Mayor.

A few months back, Jeff informed me that the Village had no licensing procedure in place to permit commercial filming at Doubleday Field. I was surprised. I am a documentary producer and my budgets typically include location fees. Jeff decided to investigate this potentially significant revenue stream, and guided the Board to capitalize on it, establishing an innovative yet responsible approach to off-setting our tax burden.

In these uncertain times, we will feel the impact of every decision, large or small, enacted by our new Mayor.

Jeff is a seasoned Trustee in command of the issues, able to commit full-time to leading Cooperstown to successfully rebuild, repair and update..

He has my confidence and my support, and he deserves yours.

SSPCA says thank you

All of us at the Susquehanna SPCA send a thank you shout out to everyone who helped make our benefit spaghetti dinner during Winter Carnival weekend such a success. The Winter Carnival Committee did a terrific job of organization _ there were many and greatly varied events during the entire weekend. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. To our generous sponsors _ Hannaford, The Great American, the P & C, and Price Chopper _ we much appreciate your support. The SSPCA is lucky to have such a supportive board and friends _ many of whom served as cooks, servers and bottle washers for the evening. Thank you so much to Lucy Townsend for her generosity. And most of all _ thanks to everyone who came, enjoyed the evening and gave their support to the animals at the SSPCA. We greatly appreciate it!

Jane Duel

Director of Development and Community Relations

  • 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.
