On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Susquehanna SPCA and our volunteers, we thank the following who donated their time during the Cooperstown Winter Carnival. We appreciate their energy and money to help our organization provide the best care for our furry friends while awaiting new homes:

•    Cooperstown Winter Carnival Committee, who pulled together the theme of “British Invasion” with great success.

•    Dog Wild Canine Supply for its sponsorship and donation of prizes for the Hounds of Baskerville SSPCA Dog Show. What great fun!!

•    Phil Andrews and staff at Nicoletta’s Italian Café, Main Street, for the wine, hors d’oeuvre samplings and collection of donations for our cause. (Lovely wines, tasty food and a great turnout!)

To all of you, Carnival participants, we say thank you!

Rethink paid parking and mascot name change

I have lived in the Town of Otsego all my life. In addition to being a resident, I’ve been a local business owner, and the actions of the village trustees to force paid parking are not good for the residents or the businesses in Cooperstown. I understand the desire to find revenues, but this effort will simply hurt (and cost) the residents of the village and town.

People move to Cooperstown because it is a very nice place to live. Yes we all know it is a very nice place to live and raise our families, that is why a lot of us have lived here all of our lives. We all make an effort to visit Main Street business and support our local business people … all-year-round. But I find it curious that many people decide to move to Cooperstown because it is so unique, and then they make every effort to change it.

They come here to escape many of the disadvantages of their former communities, and decide to try to remake Cooperstown into that former community. That’s just crazy.

  • Please Click Here I have always gone to the library. When I was young, my mother took my siblings and me to our local library at least once a week to select books. I felt I had the world at my fingertips, so many books to explore!

  • 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.
