Of course, we have no idea what the village fathers and mothers might be planning when it comes to paid parking. But we would hope they would give serious consideration to all input, both positive and negative, on the issue.

We were most pleased last week to have been able to attend the celebration of Paula Pugliese’s 90th birthday. Held at the Cooperstown Back Alley Grill, family and friends gathered to wish Paula well. And we must say we quite enjoyed the festivities as we saw many people we had not seen in a while. In some ways it was like old home week for us as it gave us the opportunity to see the next generation of long time Cooperstown families, no longer the children we watched grow up, but rather the adults they now are. It was a great time and we count ourselves most lucky to have been invited to attend. And once again, we wish Paula a most Happy Birthday as well as many happy returns.
