THIS WEEK’S NEWSPAPERS

The Freeman’s Journal • Hometown Oneonta

Jan. 23-24, 2020

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

With state Sen. Jim Seward’s announcement he will retire at the end of his term, we took a photo trip down Memory Lane.  When the Cooperstown “Birthplace of Baseball” license plates were issued in the 1990s, Senator Seward received #3. You can still see him driving around with them today.  #1 went to Harold Hollis, former Freeman’s Journal managing editor and then-mayor of Cooperstown. (Later, it was passed on to Jane Forbes Clark.) Then Hall of Fame Director Ed Stack, right, received #2.
