County Highway Crew Installs First Solar-Powered Stop Sign

County Highway Crew Installs

First Solar-Powered Stop Sign

The county Highway Department has installed its first solar-powered stop sign, county Highway Supt. Bill Mason announced today.  It is at County Routes 11 and 14 southwest of Hartwick hamlet, where east-bound traffic from New Lisbon goes down a sharp incline just before the intersection.  This is the third such sign in Otsego County, after one at Center and Church, Oneonta.  At the encouragement of crossing guard Thomas “Stretch” Redding, a second was installed two years ago in front of Cooperstown Elementary School.  “We selected this location to try first because of issues with fog at this ‘T’ intersection,” said Mason.  “First, we enhanced the ‘Stop Ahead’ sign post, then the ‘Stop’ sign post (the red stripe), then removed several trees right at the top of the ‘T’, then we added this new sign.  We will try a couple of these this season and see how they hold up.”

Fire Damages Cooperstown Bat Company Storage Facility

Cooperstown Bat

Building On Fire

HARTWICK – The former sawmill at the end of Poplar Street in the Hamlet of Hartwick was the site of a fire this evening.

The sawmill had been vacant for several years before Tim and Connie Haney, owners of the Cooperstown Bat Company, refurbished it as a place to store their billets, blank bats that are in need of finishing. The restoration of the building was only completed two weeks ago.

As of 8:30 p.m., the roof had collapsed, and smoke was still pouring from the building.  Crews are still on the scene.
