THURSDAY-FRIDAY, MARCH 28-29, 2013

Mike Welch Sold Fords To Multiple Local Generations DAD/From B1 and the values of the popular large cars plummeted almost overnight. It was a difficult time for anyone to sell cars, especially in a small town with so much competition. Mike survived those early struggles with an easy demeanor and a persistence that helped separate him and the dealership from the others. It wasn’t long before many of the customers who once sat in his barber chair ended up behind the wheel of a Ford. The hard work during his early days earned him loyal clients; several of them bought every car from him. So did their children and grandchildren, friends and co-workers. Their trust and the friendships he made rewarded him with a lifelong love for his work. He helped the business grow and eventually the

Mike Welch joined Smith-Cooperstown when it was on Chestnut Street, two buildings north of the Inn at Cooperstown, and experienced the move to the new showroom on Route 28 south of the village. In both photos he is with Ed Smith, the dealership’s proprietor.

dealership moved from the confines of the village to the comfort of their current location in 1988. The staff grew as well and now employs 28 full-time employees. He became responsible for managing the business in addition to selling cars, successfully juggling both

tasks for decades. Year after year the dealership earned national recognition for customer service during his tenure. Customers and employees alike would agree that they appreciated Mike because they knew how much he appreciated them, and he made

them feel like there was never any reason for them to go anywhere else. He enjoyed a great relationship with his boss, two “car guys” who shared a passion for the car business that Edward Smith had learned from his father, Harry W. Smith, and impart-

ed upon Mike as a young salesman. They formed a team that lasted for 40 years, from the early days of gas rationing to the advent of hybrid and electric cars, through late nights spent chatting with tire kickers to doing the same with online shoppers, they kept selling cars together, and Smith-Ford kept going strong. On March 13, 2013, Michael Welch worked his last day for Smith-Cooperstown, Inc., completing a career that began as a novice car salesman and culminated in being the general manager for one of Cooperstown’s oldest continuously operating businesses and its last remaining car dealer. As hard as it is for him to leave the job he loved and dedicated his life to, he feels pride in knowing he proved his boss right; Mike Welch was a great car salesman.

STEVENS/From B1 Oneonta, he operated Stevens for another six decades. “People have been telling me, ‘I bought my first gun there!’” said Hesse. “He was an instrumental figure in this community.” One of Hesse’s favorite finds while he was gathering items for the auction was the original aluminum sign. “I don’t know when it was taken down, but it’s a piece of history.” Originally, there may have been glass behind the letters, but no broken glass was found. “I don’t understand why it was universally removed,” he said. “And

The pistols, from I. Schmidt, Gustav, Germany, are engraved with the initials F.G. Bastian and 1842. The barrels bear a “Damascus Twist” pattern. “I have never seen it so curly,” said Hesse. “And there’s all this beautiful engraving on the furniture.” The document carrier looks like just an old, slightly rusted muffler, but the lettering clearly reads “George Custer.” “There’s

An open letter about testing: what parents and community members need to know Next month, our students in grades 3-8 will take state tests based on the new Common Core standards adopted by the State Education Department. Parents and educators have raised serious concerns about the timing and preparation for these new standardized exams. As president of NYSUT, I am writing to let you know why teachers are so concerned. Let me be clear: Teachers support the principle of Common Core standards. Done right, implementation of quality Common Core standards can enrich and expand student learning, critical thinking and creativity. And we fully support the principle of accountability for students and educators. Done right, standardized tests can be one of many measures that can strengthen teaching and learning. But the problem is: Testing

in New York state isn’t being done right.

No experienced teacher would test students on material before it’s been taught — and yet that’s the scenario the state has created in its rush to roll out new standardized tests. Two-thirds of teachers surveyed statewide say their students lack books and materials aligned with the new Common Core standards. As recently as last month, the state was still rolling out materials and instructions on Common Core, while expecting students to have mastered new curriculum by April. Too many students have not had time to prepare for what will be a whole new set of challenging standardized exams in math and English Language Arts. Not surprisingly, everyone from U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to State Education Commissioner John King has acknowledged that students’ test scores will likely drop significantly — some estimates say up to 30 percent. Yet the state is allowing this year’s scores to be used to unfairly label students and to inaccurately measure teacher effectiveness. As parents know, it’s wrong to impose “high stakes” on too many tests, given too frequently, and before teachers have had the opportunity to properly prepare their students. It’s wrong for children to come home crying after taking a test. Thousands of educators are “telling it like it is” and sharing these concerns about student stress and anxiety in detailed, heart-felt letters to Commissioner King and the Regents. Here’s what we’re saying: Let’s get this right. Patience, time and resources are required to implement new and challenging Common Core standards. This year’s exams should be used to measure the state’s progress in introducing Common Core standards — not for high-stakes decisions. Just like you, educators support high standards. Our

commitment is to get it done right.

Respectfully,

Richard C. Iannuzzi President, New York State United Teachers
