say thanks

The Cooperstown Friends of Football Committee would like to thank everyone that helped support us in 2012. Your generous contributions at the Hartwick Breakfast and other fundraisers allowed us to provide the players, cheerleaders and coaches with individual and team photos and buttons, bag lunches for away games, a homecoming game under the lights, awards banquet, modified pizza party, team gifts, and team video.

Congratulations to the winners of the cash raffle: first place, 25 percent of funds generated, Michael Powers; second place, 10 percent of funds generated, McKayla Fay and third place, 5 percent of funds generated, John Ford.

Special thanks to the Cooperstown Booster Club, Country Junction Candles, Smith Ford, Stewarts, NY Pizzeria, Reis Moving and Storage Automatic Carwash, TOPS grocery and Price Chopper for their continued support. Thanks to the players, cheerleaders and coaches for an exciting season. We look forward to next year.

Gas prices too high

The gasoline prices in Cooperstown (and Oneonta) are totally out of line. Go in any direction away from this area and the prices drop drastically. For the last four months the price of gasoline in Richfield Springs had been approximately 16 cents or more per gallon cheaper. And that is at stations owned by the same companies which own stations in Cooperstown; Stewarts and Taylors. They both want to be known as our “Hometown Neighborhood Store.”

On Friday, Aug. 22, the price for regular gas at most stations I saw in Utica and Richfield Springs, was $3.699. On the same day, the price in Cooperstown at our “Hometown Neighborhood Stores” was $3.979 and $3.999 respectively. That’s a 28 and 30 cents per gallon difference.
