Workin’ On The Railroad

Eagle Scout Directing Repair

Of Milford Miniature RR Loop

Troop 1254 Boy Scout Rudy Bohm, Fly Creek, hammers a piece of rebar into the ground as he repairs railroad track today at the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad depot in Milford. As part of his Eagle Scout service project, Bohm will coordinate a project that will revamp the track, which was built 20 years ago for a miniature train that the historic railroad company owns. When it is complete, the goal will be to get the miniature train running once again, and to then offer rides to kids in Milford’s Wilber Park. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)

Milford Park Dedicated In Former Mayor’s Name

In Milford, Park’s Naming

Surprises Former Mayor

After serving as mayor for the Village of Milford for 20 years, Sabine Curry now serves as the manager of the Milford Farmers’ Market. Today, the village recognized her service by naming a new Milford Community Park at the village’s north end in her honor. The dedication was a surprise to Curry, who reacted with tears as the sign was unveiled. The newly dedicated Sabine Curry Outdoor Recreational Park is the village’s newest park, and has served as the home for the village farmers’ market which, under Curry’s management, opened this year.  At today’s noontime announcement are, from left, Assistant DPW  Chief John Muir, Village Clerk Kitty Ruling, Village DPW Chief  Paul Francis, Trustee Taylor Brose, Deputy Mayor Dave West, Sabine Curry, Mayor Brian Pokorny and Otsego County Sheriff (and village resident) Richard J. Devlin, Jr.  Inset, West hugs Curry after the announcement.  (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)
