NY Gun Law Won’t Stand, Gibson Says
ew York State’s new SAFE gun law “will be thrown out,” according to U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, R-19. Speaking to Cooperstown Rotarians Tuesday, Feb. 19, in a tour of the county that included a visit to Springbrook that afternoon, he said the U.S. Supreme Court has concluded guns “can be regulated, but not banned.” He questioned the term “assault rifle” for weapons like the Bushmaster XM15 E2S used in Newtown. “It’s a rifle,” said the retired Army colonel.

Follow Terry Bliss’ Hike Along Appalachian Trail BLISS/From A1 His love of the trail started in 1995, when he and his son Scott started backpacking in sections. “We’d go for a weekend, sometimes a week,” he said. “In total, I’ve done about 300 miles and been through 12 of the 14 states the trail runs through.” The two he hasn’t hiked are, oddly enough, the ones right in his backyard – New York and nearby Connecticut. “I’ve been to both ends of the trail, but I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s like in the lower Hudson.” Every five days, he’ll call his wife and tell her of his “pleasures and miseries,” and she’ll transcribe them to the blog so readers can “follow” him, right down the arrow on the website’s map showing his location. He’ll also mail one of five memory cards to son Scott, who will post pictures of
he said. “When I eat the meal you donated, you’ll be part of the hike, and I’ll list your name on the website along with where I ate it.” He’s also invited people to join him for the day if he’s hiking in their area. He’ll only carry five days worth of supplies, a backpacking hammock to keep him off the wet ground and, for when it gets too rainy or The Blisses – Terry and the day has been too long, Terry – on terrybliss. com, where his AT hike a sleeping bag and pad to throw down in one of the will be chronicled. three-sided tin-roof shelters fellow hikers, scenery and that dot the trail. “Every other memories of the trail. “That’ll be the fun part,” he so often, I’ll get off the trail to restock in a “trail said. town,” he said. “They’re He also started a “Meals geared towards hikers the on Heels” program, where way Cooperstown is geared friends are invited to write towards baseball families.” their names on a just-addIn a trail town, he can water meal and deliver it to get a hot shower, sleep in a wife Theresa, who will mail bunk in a hostel, do laundry, them to the various stops recharge his cell phone and along the route. “That will partake in every hiker’s be my supper most nights,” dream – the all-you-can-eat

But Terry knows the hike won’t be all pictures of sunsets and limitless food. “It’s a challenge,” he said. “When it’s the third day in a row that it’s raining and the food is no good and I’m just drinking water, the blog will be motivation for me to keep going. No one wants to read about an incomplete hike.” Only one in four complete the entire hike. “You have to reach down inside yourself,” he said. “I’m going to be that one. If it was easy, a lot of people would do it.” When he sets his mind on something, though, Bliss has a reputation for following through. He’d always wanted to walk around Otsego Lake. He retired last April, he woke up the next morning and, putting on his walking shoes, did just that.

Success These Days Means Accepting Change. Are We Ready?
nteresting letter to the editor in Sunday’s Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin – Page 2, Viewpoints section – referencing United Van Lines’ annual study of migration patterns, showing New York has the third-highest ratio among the 50 states of people moving out vs. people moving in. The letter writer, Stephen Kutney of Endicott, goes on to reference Travis Brown’s book, “How Money Walks,” that reports $15 billion in income has moved out of New York in 15 years, more than any other state. • That brought to mind the Feb. 6 Cooperstown Central school board meeting where the fate of the “Redskin” nickname was debated, and where one alumna grilled board members: How many of you were born here? It turns out, none of them are Cooperstown natives. But so what? It’s really the wrong question. Are they interested, motivated, fair-minded, intelligent and – probably most important, given CCS’ recent history – do they have the fortitude to make decisions that protect and elevate the students under their care? One board member who spoke – for the first time since his
family here,” said Marietta, who, incidentally, was Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce president during a difficult transition, “I thought this” – the “Redskin” question – “was a very good way to invest the school board’s time. I think (the nickname) is one thing that holds Cooperstown back.” Other board members include a Bassett physician, an entrepreneur or two, a SUNY Oneonta professor, people who came to Otsego County in professional capacities and are contributing to their The Freeman’s Journal adopted community. This is exactly what New York CCS board member (and nonnative) Andy Marietta ran for needs. office “to make a better en• vironment for our children.” Cooperstown, of course, isn’t What’s wrong with that? the only place around here where the native-born flag is waved from election last May, he said – was time to time, nor is it unique to Andrew Marietta, a Midwesterner Otsego County or even Upstate. who attended SUNY Oneonta’s It’s a common dynamic in a lot of Cooperstown Graduate School places. in Museum Studies and stayed It’s least prevalent locally, to become the local director of perhaps, in the City of Oneonta, NYCON, the New York Council where you often hear newcomof Non-Profits. ers talking about how welcome He ran for the school board, he they feel.

Plus, so make a better environment for our many of our neighbors are SUNY children.” Oneonta and Hartwick grads who “As someone who’s building a came here for college, decided
‘Redskin.’ Is It Really Most Important Education Issue? To the Editor Of all the commentary regarding the “Redskin” Question, Orlo Burch’s suggestion makes the most sense of all. Thanks to its Hartwick segment, Cooperstown Central School already has a perfectly appropriate name for its sports teams: “The Huskies.” As Orlo emphasizes, the residents of Hartwick chose to send their children (those of high school age and later those of elementary school age) to Cooperstown Central School. It is a pity that they did not suggest that the designation “The Huskies” go with them. Through the years, these students have made significant contributions to the academic atmosphere of CCS, as well as to various athletic teams, though the Hartwick connection and other outlying connections have been unintentionally under-
stated. In the meantime, the middle-high school has moved from Chestnut Street to the edge of town and no Cooperstown resident serves on the board of education. It is clear that the name “Redskins” will be replaced. To preserve a connection with the past, with the history of the school district, it would be most appropriate to select a replacement that has an ancient tie to the district. No term could be more appropriate than “The CCS Huskies.” Accolades to Orlo Burch. I can’t help adding that there is something anomalous about all this. There has been great concern about an athletic nickname: large turnouts at board of education meetings, front page pictures and features and editorials in local newspapers, all manner of face-to-face confrontation.

they liked it, and stayed. It’s surprising the attitude hangs on all, given, in particular, how our political leadership is largely dominated by folks from somewhere else. County Board chair Kathy Clark was raised on Long Island. Cooperstown Mayor Jeff Katz, likewise raised on Long Island, spent his career in Chicago. Oneonta Mayor Dick Miller is from Rochester. Same with our business leaders. Chobani’s Hamdi Ulukaya is from eastern Turkey. Custom Electronics president (and Ioxus founder) Mike Pentaris is from Cyprus. It’s a similar story at most of our major institutions. • At the bottom of the front page in that same issue of the Press & Sun-Bulletin was a headline, “Universities leading transition in Upstate.” In the first decade of this century, Albany correspondent Jessica Bakeman reports, New York’s colleges and universities grew by a whopping 38 percent; private-sector jobs grew 1.1 percent. SUNY jobs grew 20 percent; SUNY enrollment, 63 percent. (The Sunday paper was picked up after witnessing Oneonta’s Lady Yellowjackets take the STAC title at SUNY Binghamton, and the construction underway on that
campus is eye-popping.) This is all part of a plan that hasn’t completely come together yet, to train people in “nanotechnology, biomedical science, analytics and renewable energy development,” the jobs of the future. But it’s happening. In his State of the State speech in January, Governor Cuomo announced five “innovation hot spots” in different regions of the state. Last year, Bakeman reports, the state chipped in $400 million to a $4.8 billion deal with IBM, Intel, Global Foundries and two other companies to make “cutting-edge computer chips.” Part of the challenge is while our state spends billions educating high-earners of the future, they graduate and leave for the Sunbelt or the Silicon Valley. If that continues, all is for naught. Certainly, there’s no time in world history where change came at us more quickly. With the Internet and the globalization it has allowed, everything is different, and we need to challenge assumptions, to let go of the old, to try new ways of doing things. We see change all around us. Often, it’s not so bad. Even when it is, it’s essential.

He died in Kingstree in 1900 and is buried in Charleston. • Fifth, and finally, I invoke the name of John W. Jackson, Jr. Born in Fort Plain in 1858, he was brought to Cooperstown the following year, where his father became for many years the village barber. He attended school here, learned how to play baseball, and about the age of 18 left home to pursue what was then for African-Americans an unheard of dream – to be a professional baseball player. He always played under the name of Bud Fowler, and between 1878 and 1894 was a member of many American teams, some of them in Minor Leagues – where his exceptional prowess as a pitcher, and especially as a second baseman, was universally recognized. Despite this, Bud Fowler never made the Major Leagues, and he was regularly expelled from teams because of his race – either his teammates or those of opposing teams refused to play alongside an African-American. In 1894, Bud Fowler formed the Page Fence Giants – an all-black, all-star team that played throughout much of the nation – traveling in their own private railroad car. In later life Fowler became both ill and impoverished, and he died in February 1913 at the home of his sister in Frankfort, Herkimer County. • All five of these men deserve to be remembered here in Cooperstown. Hugh MacDougall is Cooperstown village historian.

On the 29th December last, about 10 leagues from the coast of Brazil, the U.S. Frigate Constitution, Comm. Bainbridge, fell in with and captured his Majesty’s Frigate JAVA, of 49 guns, and manned with upwards of 400 men. The action continued one hour and fifty-five minutes, in which time the JAVA was made a complete wreck, having her bowsprit, and every mast and spar shot out of her. The Constitution had nine men killed and 25 wounded. The JAVA had 60 men killed and 101 wounded – among the latter, mortally, Captain Lambert, her commander, a very distinguished officer. The JAVA was rated a 38 but mounted 49 guns. February 27, 1813

Bert Talbot of Edmeston sold his venerable and beloved Cameron, an air-cooled sports model roadster, on Tuesday of last week to Robert Chase of Earlville. Chase will place the curiosity in a museum along with a number of other ancient models which he has collected. Mr. Talbot bought the car in 1910 and paid the magnificent sum of $1,050 for it. He sold it to Mr. Chase for fifty dollars. Through the 28 years that Mr. Talbot has had the car, he has kept it in fine condition and good running order.

Here is another shrinkage amounting to about $18,500. At this rate, it is doubtful whether anything is to be realized above the mortgage indebtedness and the judgments of record at the time of the assignment.

Chambers Collaborate On ‘Local 1st’ Strategy LOCAL/From A1 in addition to everyone else: “When you are out shopping, think about our region, instead of just reverting to the Internet.” “It’s top of mind awareness,” said Heegan, who joined Szarpa Wednesday, Feb. 13, in hosting “stakeholders” at the Country Inn & Suites, Hartwick Seminary, in a “Local First!” campaign that has been percolating since soon after the two executives were hired last year, and is now coming to a boil. By May 1, a “Local First!” logo will have been developed, and the two chambers, through print advertising, billboards and other means, will be rolling out what’s expected to be a 2-3 year campaign to make local shoppers fully aware of what’s for sale in local stores. The idea is to saturate the market, then to test shopper awareness in 24 or 36 months to determine the campaign’s success. “Have businesses noticed any change in local shoppers and local usage,” said Szarpa. The local effort was inspired in part by similar programs in Saratoga Springs and Western New York, and such experts as author Becky McCray of www. smallbizsurvival.com.

Yes, we all know it is a very nice to live and raise our families, that is why a lot of us have lived here all of our lives. We all make an effort to visit Main Street business and support our local business people – all year round.
Keep Mayor’s ‘Prudent Leadership’ to benefit us all, as we slowly emerge into a productive and well-rounded economy where all may prosper and be secure. We are a stable and vibrant small city of different faiths and cultures pleasantly situated in the western Catskills of our Empire State. Let us continue this caring and prudent political leadership into the unknown future to bless our best hopes and desires, benefiting from two outstanding educational colleges and an excellent medical system, good public parks, access to Interstate 88, healthy business and our Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center. May each of us continue to appreciate all the good we have here. The Rev. KEN BALDWIN Oneonta

But I find it curious that many people decide to move to Cooperstown because it is so unique, and then they make every effort to change it. They come here to escape many of the disadvantages of their former communities, and decide to try to remake Cooperstown into that former community. That’s just crazy. When asked about the effect on locals, the mayor’s answer was that any village residents can come to the village office and pay for a pass to park in the months that the village will be charging for parking. If the mayor was interested in working with and for the residents and business of Cooperstown and
the people in the Town of Otsego who shop in the village, he should have said that any resident of the village or the Town of Otsego can get a parking pass. This short-sighted move will not be good for the businesses or residents of Cooperstown. And, finally, as the newer residents to our community continue to swing their sledgehammer, another victim is the pride and tradition of Cooperstown Redskins athletics. The board members fueling this change have little or no roots in CCS tradition and have even less understanding of what the Redskins means to those of us who do. SHEILA M. ROSS Fly Creek
Thanks For Helping SSPCA To the Editor: On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Susquehanna SPCA and our volunteers, we thank the following who donated their time during the Cooperstown Winter Carnival. We appreciate their energy and money to help our organization provide the best care for our furry friends while awaiting new homes: • Cooperstown Winter Carnival Committee who pulled together the theme of “British Invasion” with great success.
• Dog Wild Canine Supply for their sponsorship and donation of prizes for the Hounds of Baskerville SSPCA Dog Show. What great fun!! • Phil Andrews and staff at Nicoletta’s Italian Café, Main Street, for the wine, hors d’oeuvre samplings and collection of donations for our cause. (Lovely wines, tasty food and a great turnout!) To all of you, Carnival participants, we say thank you! PAULA BUGONIAN SSPCA Board Member
Does CCS Need New Administrator? LETTER/From A4 Yet no reaction at all to the announcement that the school district will be hiring a “director of student services” to provide, according to a newspaper article, “educational leadership and oversight in the development and improvement of the district’s curriculum.” In
short, another administrator. This is of concern, evidently, only to those who believe that the basics of education are centered not on the playing field but in the classroom and that the basic provider is the classroom teacher. WENDELL TRIPP Cooperstown

Oneidas Offer To Pick Up New CCS Uniforms’ Cost ONEIDAS/From A1 next full board meeting, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6. Since 150 residents debated the matter at the board’s Feb. 6 meeting, Chad Welch, representing the CCS Alumni Association, met with the board’s Public Relations Committee Friday, Feb. 14, and planned to do so again on Wednesday, Feb. 20. The alumni association supports keeping the nickname. Hebert didn’t comment on whether the Oneida Indian offer would be considered, but it was made in a Feb. 15 letter from Ray Halbritter, the nation representative since 1975 and CEO since 1990 who is credited with winning Congressional recognition of the tribe. He then oversaw the construction of the casino in Verona, west of Utica. The letter was prompted by reports that the CCS Student Council supported changing the team name to “Native Americans,” a decision Halbritter called “a thoughtful and compassionate action (that) speaks well for the way Cooperstown is
enlightening its youth, and speaks well for the future of your community.” He continued, “We understand Halbritter that your courageous decision” – despite the Student Council vote, the
school board has yet to act – “also comes with a financial consequence and, unfortunately, potential backlash from those who somehow claim that ethnic stereotyping is a victimless crime. We therefore wish to honor your courage and assist your transition to a new, more inclusive mascot ... We would be honored to help your athletic teams purchase
new jerseys that reflect your new team name.” While “Redskin” is still in use on the football, baseball and basketball jerseys, it was pointed out that most CCS teams have dropped the name. School board President David Borgstrom also noted that the word, “Redskin,” does not appear on the school’s Web site, www. cooperstownccs.com
