DALTON: Program Instructed Us On Racism

LETTER from DEB DALTON

Program Instructed Us On Racism

To the Editor:

One of the joys of living in our part of Upstate New York is the ability to recognize and appreciate some individuals who truly make our world better, and who, in a larger populated area, might go unnoticed.

In this particular case, I would like to thank and congratulate Liane Hirabayashi and Lynne Mebust for the success of the “Looking in the Mirror: Cooperstown Reflects on Racism” programming made possible this year via Zoom and sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Cooperstown Area and The Friends of the Village Library.

The ability to participate in this important series from the comfort of our homes, and to view at a preferred time through Zoom – all recorded and available through the Village Library website – was a truly brilliant concept.

I am sure that all speakers who shared their expertise so generously would not have been willing to travel on our wintry roads to attend a live event.

Participation was high, technology worked! Our community has a better understanding of racism and now has some tools in our toolbox with which to combat racism here and in the larger world.

Thank you Lianne and Lynne!

Russians Play On Divisions, Post’s Timberg Tells Crowd

Russians Play On Divisions,

Post’s Timberg Tells Crowd

Russians meddlers in the 2016 U.S. elections played up racial, ethnic and other divisions among Americans, recirculating articles from major newspapers that highlighted those issues, the Washington Post’s Craig Timberg, who summers near Cherry Valley, told an SRO crowd this evening in Cooperstown Village Hall.  A Pulitzer Prize winner, Timberg said many details about the Russian’s interference and its extent are still unclear to reporters – 20 at the Washington Post – who are working on the story full time.  Here he fields a question from Patty MacLeish of Cooperstown.  Timberg, son-in-law of Ed and Joan Badgley of Cooperstown, spoke on the topic, “Russian Disinformation: Will it Happen Again?”  The talk was sponsored by the Friends of the Village Library.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
