 by Catherine GarnseyKatelyn Robertson is noordinary ninth grader. In ad-dition to the common extra-curricular activities—skiing, running cross-country, and scuba diving—she is alsoa professional beekeeper, who manages five honeybee hives in her backyard in Cold Spring, five in the Philip-stown area and 30 more at  her family’s weekend homein Stephentown.How did Katie become in-volved in beekeeping? She has been fascinated with her father’s beekeeping hobby allof her life. She remembersstanding in front of a busy hive when she was about three years old, arms outstretched, without a beekeeper suit or any other protection, just “being with the bees.” She wasn’t afraid, she didn’t get stung, and she really felt that she understood their ways.Years later, when her father announced that he was goingto give up beekeeping becauseof a back injury, Katie said that she wanted to continuein his place. So from the ageof 10 until now, Katie has been the Head Beekeeper in the Robertson family. Not only does she manage all the hives, but she also collectsthe honey twice a year, bottlesit and sells “Katie’s Cold Spring Honey” wholesale totwo shops in Cold Spring.And every year, Katie gives beekeeping workshops to 1st grade classes at Haldane El-ementary School to teach thechildren to enjoy and respect  honeybees and to understand the role they play in our lives.“One out of three foodsthat we eat depends on the pollination of honeybees,”Katie said, “They are indis- pensable to the crops and food markets of the world.”But it’s not cheap to set upeven one hive. Three poundsof new honeybees with a queen bee in a wooden boxcosts about $100. The Robert-son family reminisced about the time last year that they had to order bees from a Florida apiary after most of Katie’s colonies collapsed in a nationwide epidemic.When the boxes with tens of thousands of bees arrived at the Cold Spring Post Office,they got an urgent call from the postmaster. “Your beesare here! Please come and  pick them up!” Apparently,the buzzing from the screened  bee boxes was unnerving tothe staff at the Post Office.Katie went on to describethe seasonal rhythm of bee- keeping. In the spring (lateApril or early May), the hivesare unwrapped so that the bees can go out to gather  pollen and start their honey- making. Just before the end of the school year in June,the first batch of honey is harvested. Another batch of  honey is harvested in August, before school begins again.In autumn, when the leavesturn, the hives are packed  up for the winter by repair-ing any holes and wrappingthe hive with tar paper tocontain the heat. And thecycle continues in the spring.PCN&R

Parking Fines Could Change
(See Beekeeper on Page 9)
 by Michael Turton When people are lookingfor a fine dining experience,they don’t want to just hope,they want to know that theestablishment they choose hasa long-standing tradition of excellence. The Bird & BottleInn takes that notion to theextreme, given that it first opened its doors in 1761— albeit as Warren’s Tavern.Today, some 248 years later,the Bird & Bottle offers an eclectic, international, and seasonal menu that is bound to please the most discriminating palate while also capturingthe imagination of those whoseek a truly unique diningexperience.Chef Doug Gardiner putsit simply. “I don’t like tocook the same food every week. I like to look to dif-ferent cultures.” The menu certainly reflects that philoso- phy—whether it’s an African stew; the Tunisian spiced lamb chops, now part of the new fall menu; a Jamaican  jerk burger cooked up on theInn’s increasingly popular Tavern Nights; or a Sunday brunch that is anything but  just another brunch.

 by Michael MellThe October 13 VillageBoard monthly meeting be-gan with a public hearing on a proposal to amend VillageCode Chapter 126, Section 126: Penalties for ParkingViolations, which sets parkingfines in the village. This wasthe final step in a process be-gun by the board a few weeksago, the goal of which has been to make the fine align  with the crime and to provideincentive for prompt payment of parking fines.Some base fines have been lowered and others raised, but the chief change is a provi-sion for increased fees for late payment. For all fines not paid within a 30 to 60day window, the fee will bedoubled. For all fines paid after 90 days, the amount  will be doubled and a $10surcharge added. The onlyexceptions are for violationsinvolving disabled parkingand expired vehicle inspec-tions. State laws limit finesfor these two violations to $75 maximum. Mayor Gallagher  read the amendment and so-licited public comment. There were no negative comments,and the board voted unani- mously to pass the amendment (with Trustee Miller absent).After completion of the pub-lic hearing the board began its agenda for the October  monthly meeting with a report from Village Accountant Ellen Mageean. In anticipation of the final payment to replaceflooring in the firehouse, Ms.Mageean presented the board  with a resolution to transfer $1,812 into the account for fire department building re- pairs, to be taken from thestreet maintenance account.This will bring the total fundsavailable up to $9,000. The board passed the resolution  without comment. In other  matters, Mageean reported that the balance in the Vil-lage general fund is higher than expected due primarilyto revenues from the CHIPS program, revenue sharing, and  payment for fire protection service by the village of Nel-sonville. She also informed the board that 97 percent of taxes have been collected todate, which is “very good.”The building inspector’s report listed a handful of  building permits issued, in-spections, and certificate of occupancies issued. There was, however, a significant violation described. In re-sponse to complaints from  residents of the Forge Gatecondominium complex, a vio-lation was issued to Elite Prop-erty Services. Several months have passed since a structuralengineer’s inspection, whichcited the “advanced deterio- ration” and “inappropriate repairs” that have rendered the
Candidates to Participate in Philipstown Forum
 by Eric GrossIn a case that has become a focal point of the current de- bate between the Democraticcandidate for Putnam CountySheriff and the Republican incumbent, a Putnam Valleyfamily has reached a settle- ment with Putnam Countyin a civil rights lawsuit over the suicide of a 21-year-old inmate who hanged himself in a jail cell three and one-half  years ago.As the trial wound down last  week in U.S. District Court in White Plains, Donny Sinkovagreed to settle with four of the five defendants while thefifth defendant, Americor, a Delaware company hired bythe county to provide medi-cal services at the Putnam Correctional Facility, wasfound 35 percent responsiblefor the inmate’s death and  was assigned a liability of $265,000.Spencer Sinkov was sen-tenced to the county jail in May of 2006, after Sheriff’sDepartment investigators ar- rested him on several felonycharges relating to criminalsale and criminal possession of heroin. The following day,after his family had visited  him behind bars, Sinkovcommitted suicide in his cell

Villanova Alleges Putnam Valley Stimulus Shenanigans
 by Michael Brendan DoughertyPatty Villanova, a Town Board candidate in Putnam Valley has alleged that thePutnam Valley Fire Depart- ment lied about its condition  when it applied for federalstimulus money to build a $9 million firehouse. Having pored over the grant request,Villanova also insists that the Town may have secretly promised $4 million in fundsto be added once the stimulusfunds are granted. Villanova  has sent her charges, and a  request for a formal inves-tigation into the stimulusapplication to the Inspector General of FEMA, Robert Skinner.Villanova, a 50-year resi-dent of the town who recently won a Republican nomination for a Town Board seat over the objections of the localRepublican Committee de-scribes herself as a “taxpayer advocate.” “I don't care what  party you are in, if there is wrongdoing I will expose it,”she said. Some in the town,even her own party, see it otherwise.“She is not a gadfly, she’sa crank,” says Putnam ValleySupervisor Bob Tendy. “Patty has been pointing a lot of fingers at a lot of people.”Villanova’s letter is based on the grant request the Put- nam Valley Fire Department filed with FEMA for stimulusfunds to build a new mod-ernized firehouse. Her letter quotes page 10 of the appli-cation which states that the request is to “Replace unsafe/  uninhabitable fire station.”Villanova says, “They useit every day and for other functions. How is that un-inhabitable?”The grant request notesthat the Putnam Valley Court House has been deemed “in violation of public safetycodes” by the state and must  be renovated or replaced.Villanova’s letter says that  no such determination has been made.Tendy counters: “The town  has been put on notice that the courthouse is in violation of public safety codes, cer-tain DEC violations. That’s not necessarily an incorrect statement.”“It’s a really terrible and  reckless thing for her to do,”Tendy said, “It’s easy to takesentence out of a 26-pageapplication. She takes threeor four lines out of it. Theletter itself is unfair.”“The town board was not forthcoming with the infor- mation,” Villanova said, “I had to investigate what wasgoing on with the firehouse.The project has appeared  before the town planning board and design board. Howcan the Town Board say theydon’t have the information on it?” Villanova began filingFreedom of Information LawRequests, commonly called “FOILs” with the town.“We spend a good part of our day responding to her FOIL requests.” Tendy said,“I’ve asked her to come intothe office and talk about things.”Tendy says that until theFire Department is simplydoing its diligence in explor-ing options for a new build-ing, and that the issue of a  potential bond referendum in the future to complete a  project like building a newfirehouse are moot until theFire Department receives a

 by Joe Lindsley Jr.Deputy Supervisor Richard Shea, who is seeking the town’stop post on the November 3 ballot, fielded tough but civilquestions Monday night from citizens determined to defend their private property rights in the face of proposed changesto Philipstown’s zoning laws.The gathering of about 60 people at the Garrison Volun-teer Fire Company was hosted  by the Concerned Citizens of Philipstown, a group of propertyowners and Route 9 businessowners who have joined forcesto register opposition to someof the zoning proposals. Mem- bers fear that the new system,featuring various “overlays” mandating varying levels of land protection, will limit the manner in which they can de-velop or use their properties.Joined by councilwoman Betty Budney, herself up for  reelection, Shea spoke briefly before taking questions from the polite but animated crowd. Shea admitted he wasn’t quite sure what to expect when he entered the fire house, and seemed a little surprised by the size of the crowd. In the end, though, he said the gathering produced a worthwhile dialogue.Shea emphasized that he wasspeaking in his capacity as a town board member and not as a candidate, though, withthe election just two weeksaway the evening certainly had  political implications. Empha-sizing that this was not an of-ficial town board workshop,Shea said he was not there to“answer specific questions,” but rather to answer “processquestions” about the re-draftingof Philipstown’s zoning laws.He encouraged those present to read the zoning proposalsand then to tell the town board  what specific designations theythink would be appropriate for their properties. One participant said it might take a lawyer tointerpret all the material.“Can this be put into a lan-guage we all can understand?”a woman asked Shea.“Any zoning document is going to be dense and complex,” he said. But he reminded the crowd that the new document is a significant improvement upon the town’sexisting zoning regulations.Shea said the town board does plan to remove the “open spaceoverlay” (OSO, in the jargon of the planners) and the scenic

We weren’t permitted to do that ‘fly-girl’ stuff. Ialways loved to dance. MyCarmel Book Club girls and I are known as the ‘dancingqueens.’”Odell called her Dancing with the Stars competition a “new learning experience.Practice is the word of the day.Besides it’s for a good cause.My good friend Kathy Purdy, who founded the Hillside Food Outreach, asked me to help her launch a fundraiser for the new Putnam County facility. Icouldn’t refuse and she tricked  me when explaining what thefund raiser was all about.”Odell’s partner, Matt Amesof Ridgefield, described his partner as being “extremelydiligent. She works very, very hard. From the moment shearrives at the studio, it’s ‘go-go-go!’”Tamagna agreed that he has had great fun preparing for Saturday’s event: “It’s been demanding but my partner and the dance studio here in Danbury have been fantastic.They have a lot of patience.This has been a great experi-ence.”Tamagna adorned in black velvet shoes with a silk shirt and skin tight pants for the rehearsal became known for hisoutlandish attire. Some days he even wore ruffled shirts toget in the mood. Nicole Almeida of Danburyis Tamagna’s professional part- ner: “Vinny is goofy. He is an actor who loves to have a good time. Our experience together  has been quite a ride! Vinnyis eccentric in a good way. Heis extremely focused.”The celebrity judges includePaul Teutel of American Chop- pers; Waleska Williams, wifeof NY Yankees great BernieWilliams; and Roberta Pol-lard, a professional dancer.Tickets for the event are stillavailable by calling 914-251-6200.

On Sunday, October 25,at 2pm the Franciscan Fri-ars of the Atonement will welcome Paul Moses, who will give a brief presenta-tion and sign copies of his new book,
The Saint and the Sultan,
at the Graymoor Spiritual Life Center.
The Saint and the Sultan
is“an intriguing examination of the extraordinary—and little known—meeting be-tween St. Francis of Assisiand Islamic leader Sultan Malik Al-Kamil that hasstrong resonance in today'sdivided world.” In 1219, dur-ing the Fifth Crusade, Fran-cis daringly gained an audi-ence with Malik al-Kamil,the Sultan of Egypt, wherethe two talked of peace and faith. When Francis returned to Italy, he proposed that hisorder of friars live peace-ably among the followers of Islam—a revolutionary callat a time when Christiansstrived to convert Muslimson the battlefield.Copies of the book will be available from the Gray- moor Book & Gift Center 424-2100. The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center is lo-cated at Graymoor on Route9 in Garrison.
