Dispatches From Atropia

In This Week’s Edition

Maria Falso, Caleb Rosa and Noah LaPointe get a peek inside a Blackhawk helicopter on Saturday as the Army National Guard and the C-Company of the 403rd Civil Affairs Battalion of the Army Reserves used Cooperstown as a training ground for a mission involving the care and handling of art and artifacts. Managing Editor Libby Cudmore and photographer Ian Austin have the exclusive report from “Atropia,” the fictional country where the 403rd were tasked with retrieving items as unrest loomed. The Hometown Oneonta and Freeman’s Journal are on newsstands now. (Ian Austin/ALLOTSEGO.com)
