Employee Of The Month?

Today, Old Glory was again flying at the top of the staff at Main and Pioneer in downtown Cooperstown, and a lot of village folks must be saying today, “Give that guy (or gal) an award!” After months at half-staff during NY Pause, on Sunday, Nov. 30, the Stars & Stripes was fluttering in all its glory atop of the flag pole.  When questioned about it at the time, the Village of Cooperstown Powers That Be concluded it must have been raised by a new employee unaware of Governor Cuomo’s executive order.  The week before, an anonymous message left at The Freeman’s Journal & Hometown Oneonta offices called for the return of the flag to full staff.  “Simply,” wrote a scribe who identified himself simply at Chingachgook, “a raised flag accentuates the positive things in the world.” (Tara Barnwell/
