Cooperstown & Around
Inspired by the roadside dedication in honor of John Kempe Winslow on state Route 205, the village of Cooperstown will work with the Cooperstown Veterans Club to find an appropriate place to honor Robert “Bobby” W. Atwell, who was killed March 21, 1968, in Vietnam.
A private first class in the Army, Atwell, 20, was the only village resident who died in Vietnam. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal, The Purple Heart and the Good Conduct Medal.
In October, the state dedicated a section of 205 in the hamlet of Hartwick in honor of Winslow, a Marine Sgt. who was killed in Vietnam in 1969.
The village of Coopers-town’s Board of Trustees has tentatively approved a permit for the Cooperstown Veterans of Foreign Wars to hold its annual Memorial Day Parade.
The trustees conditionally approved the permit for Monday, May 31, providing state laws regarding the coronavirus pandemic are obeyed.
COOPERSTOWN – One person has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and 13 others remain hospitalized as COVID-19 numbers continue to rise across Otsego County, Public Health Director Heidi Bond reported this afternoon.
“A good portion of these numbers are related to traveling out-of-state for the holidays,” she said. “And we’re just going to keep seeing these number rise, because people aren’t heeding to public health warnings not to socialize.”
