The hamlet of Berne has a lot going for it, but it has not tried to make use of it. It could be like Rensselaerville. It could expand Fox Creek Park to the other side of the creek and make an adjoining historical park of mill and factory ruins. It could have an antique store or two; a bed and breakfast or two; a nice restaurant. Berne has set its sights to low. My class of 1957 high school motto was "Aim High." I wish Berne had the same motto.
