Cooperstown And Around

Flashing red lights were installed at Walnut and Delaware in recent days.
Flashing red lights were installed at Walnut and Delaware in recent days.

COOPERSTOWN – Concerns about cars running the stop sign at Cooperstown Elementary raised by crossing guard Stretch Redding have led to the installation this week of solar-powered flashing lights that will blink, blink 24-7.

Trustee Cindy Falk, Streets Committee chair, said this week she, Redding and Trustee Ellen Tillapaugh had independently observed similar lights at Center and Dietz in Oneonta, and though they might keep drivers alert at the student crosswalk in the village.

EXPERT ARRIVES: Consultant Kennedy Smith, former president of the National Main Street Center, was here Monday, Nov. 9, meeting with the Comprehensive Plan committee on ways to diversity retail in downtown Cooperstown.

AIDING FOOD BANK: The Scriven Foundation has again provided a holiday season grant to match donations to the Cooperstown Food Pantry for up to $5,000 during November and December. Donations may be sent to the food pantry, 25 Church St., Cooperstown NY 13326.
