The 29th Annual Don Howard Track & Field Invitational last Saturday, May 4, at Cooperstown High School had an unlikely star – the sun popped through for a while on a cloudy, windless and not-rainy day.  The spring season has been cold, wet and windy for much of the young season, but perfect conditions led to many season-best performances.  The great one himself, Don Howard, was there with his wife, Doris, to cheer on the teams.

The Oneonta girls’ team won the 13-team meet with 140.5 points, while Cooperstown’s girls were nipping at their heels in second with 119.5.

The two teams battled head to head in several key events, which were highlighted by the sprints, hurdle races and the jumping events.  In the 400m relay, the Oneonta team of Erin Stalder, Morgan Jipson, Yuliah Johnson and Reece Thorsland posted a time of 53.19, almost a second better than they had previously run this season.

The Cooperstown girls, Ashley Kiuber, Ireland Gable, Samantha Vezza and Nora Jensen, were second, improving their seed time by almost a second at 53.44.  Oneonta’s 1600m relay team also won, with Staldler, Thorsland, Danielle Basdekis and Randy Odago shaving five seconds off their time.

Cooperstown’s Nora Jensen won the 100m hurdles and was second to Oneonta’s Basdekis in the 400m hurdle race. (Cheryl Clough/AllOTSEGO.com)

Cooperstown’s Jensen had a great day in the hurdle races, winning the 100m hurdles and coming in second to Oneonta’s Basdekis in the 400m hurdle race.  Basdekis also won the 200m with teammate Johnson getting third.  Between them was Cooperstown’s freshman sprinter Gable.  Johnson also won the 100m for Oneonta.  In the 400m, Oneonta’s Stalder won the race, taking 3 seconds off her season best.  Teammate Olivia O’Donnell was third and Cooperstown’s Abby Ford was fourth.

Village Trustees:  Keep Cooperstown Cooperstown

Village Trustees:  Keep

Cooperstown Cooperstown

The Grove, a 12-unit apartment house, is planned in this copse of woods between Chestnut Street and Pine Boulevard, a half-block from the downtown. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

A sitting-room-only-on-the-floor crowd Monday, June 24, at the Cooperstown Village Board’s monthly meeting had a point: Why put an apartment house in the middle of one of the village’s finest single-family-home neighborhoods?

There it is. That said, who doesn’t have some mixed feelings, given that the developer, Josh Edmonds, intends to build a complex that is supremely energy efficient, as is his new home at 45 Delaware St., and to price it so young families with incomes in the $54,000 range can afford it?

10 Chestnut St. includes this building, formerly Smith Cooperstown, before the Ford dealership moved south of the village.

Nonetheless, don’t village trustees have a stewardship responsibility: to preserve Cooperstown as it is known and loved? Do they have to destroy the village to save it?

With some emotion, Sherrie Kingsley, co-proprietor of the Inn at Cooperstown with her husband Marc, read a letter he co-signed that contained a chilling conclusion: Concerned about “our quality of life as well as the value of our properties,” the couple had met that morning with Altonview Architects to discuss how they might convert two houses they own, 12 Chestnut and 180 Main, into apartments if necessary.

Who knows how many others would do the same?
