To Give Tuition Aid

Salka

Assemblyman John Salka, R-Brookfield, has launched a petition drive in support of a bill he is sponsoring in the Assembly to provide tuition assistance for family members of a deceased service man or woman who died in the line of duty to attend SUNY or CUNY colleges

Cooperstown Debate

Cooperstown resident Tony Casale speaks up during this evening’s Village Board meeting. Casale was less than pleased with the board’s decision to conduct a parking trial on the lower portion of Pioneer Street, switching from parallel parking to diagonal parking, with no prior warning to the neighbors.
