Cooperstown parking rules hurt natives

I went for my mom’s prescriptions at CVS on Cooperstown’s Main Street at 10 a.m. and there wasn’t a parking slot to be had. I parked in an illegal spot and ran for it. When I got Mom’s medications, I politely told the checkout girl I will be transferring my business to a location with easier parking access. She said she’d heard the same words from other customers. When I returned to my car, a business owner was outside in the rain clearing his business spots of unauthorized vehicles.

It’s a shame the village can’t let a native do business in their hometown.
