Polling Place Restored
by Eric Gross Residents in northern Philipstown will be able to vote again this year at the North Highlands Fire Department headquarters. After consultation with Legislator Vincent Tamagna and Supervisor William Mazzuca, Commissioner of Elections Anthony Scannapieco confirmed Monday that the Board of Elections had withdrawn its earlier decision to close the firehouse polling p l a c e a f t e r t o w n o ff i c i a l s vehemently opposed. Scannapieco said the board reduced the number of polling places from 27 to 20 this year countywide as a cost-cutting move: “Now we are back up to 21,” he said. Putnam’s largest town, the Town of Carmel, has six polling places; Patterson has two; and Kent, Southeast, and Putnam Valley each have three, while Philipstown now has four, despite having a smaller population than Southeast, Kent, and Putnam Valley. Scannapieco admitted he couldn’t understand the attitude of Philipstown off i c i a l s : “ We w e r e t h r o w n out of the former Nelsonville firehouse where the county’s old machines were stored for years, forcing us to transport voting machines across the county for village elections in Cold Spring and Nelsonville, as well as school elections in Garrison and Haldane. My staff and I will again visit the Haldane High School in the next couple of weeks to instruct children on using the new optic scan machines. Allegations that Philipstown residents are being mistreated and are the step-children of the county are simply bogus and false.” L e g i s l a t o r Ta m a g n a r e acted by telling the PCN&R: “I, as all our legislators, have a tremendous amount of respect for the work that Commissioner Scannapieco and his counterpart Commissioner Robert Bennett and their staffs perform each day for all the residents of Putnam County. We in Philipstown are extremely grateful for their decision. The North Highlands firehouse will be a polling place to stay.”
Bandstand Bandits Busted
by Annie Chesnut O n F r i d a y, O c t o b e r 9 , 2009, Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith presided over a press conference at Cold Spring Village Hall to announce the arrests of four people on armed robbery charges in connection with th e r o b b er y o f a g r o u p o f youths at the Cold Spring riverfront bandstand September 18. Three of the defendants are from Dutchess County and the fourth is from Connecticut. The alleged bandstand bandits are: Angelina M. Diaz, 25, “The tomb of Kosciuszko” at West Point, by Currier & Ives. Today a statue of the Pole adorns the monument, overlooking the Hudson River. Kosciuszko’s real tomb is at the Wawel Cathedral in Krakow. of 137 Spring Valley Street in Beacon; brothers Michael J. Montague, 20, of 567 Sheafe Manor in Poughkeepsie, and Christopher J. Montague, 22, o f 53 Eas t M ain S tr eet in Beacon; and David B. Price, 18, of 20 Wood Drive in Enfield, CT. They all face felony charges as a result of the joint investigation conducted by the Sheriff’s office and Cold Spring Police, in cooperation with police agencies in Beacon and Enfield. On September 18, around 10:20pm, the Cold Spring Village Police received a 911 (See Bandits on Page 14)
Thaddeus Kosciuszko, ‘Hero of Two Worlds’
Remembering the Polish Freedom Fighter Who Built West Point
by Joe Lindsley Jr. On October 15, 1817, in the Swiss city of Solothurn, Thaddeus Kosciuszko, architect of West Point and hero of Poland, gave up the ghost after a life spent as a wandering freedom fighter. The man who would be hailed as one of the great Poles of all time first gained widespread fame due to the months he spent in the isolated, lonely Hudson Highlands, constructing fortifications on the hills and plateaus at West Point. Kosciuszko’s story is told affectionately but accurately by Alex Storozynski in The Peasant Prince: Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Era of Revolution, published last April. Storozynski, a Pulitzer Prizing winning Brooklyn native who has lectured throughout the world, including at Prague’s Charles University and at West Point, offers a well-researched portrait of one of history’s great characters—a man who was intimately involved in the 18th century battles for freedom and who lived up to his ideals by actively opposing serfdom and slavery wherever he ventured. With his engineering acumen and his heroism in battles from Saratoga, New York, to Charleston, South Carolina, Kosciuszko earned the (See Kosciuszko on Page 15)

Borkowski Bows Out
by Eric Gross It’s now official. The race for Sheriff of Putnam County is between the two-term i n c u m b e n t S h e r i ff D o n a l d Smith and his Democratic c h a l l e n g e r, K e v i n M c C o nville. F o r m e r S o u t h e a s t To w n Judge James Borkowski withdrew from the race Monday, telling the PCN&R: “We almost pulled off a complete shocker, coming within 230 votes of defeating the entrenched incumbent in a September primary. It was close all right, but no cigar. I have decided not to be a spoiler in the race and—although my name will appear on the Working Families Party line since it is too late for it to be removed from the ballot— I am not running for sheriff.” When asked if he will consider seeking public office in the future, Borkowski replied: “’I shall return,’ as General MacArthur once said!” Sheriff Smith reacted to t h e n e w s : “ I r e s p e c t M r. Borkowski’s decision to end the campaign just as I respected his decision to run for the office. It is noble to run for public office and give the people a choice.” McConville, a resident of Cold Spring, said he looked forward to the general election: “Judge Borkowski came c l o s e . Vo t e r s i n t h e G O P primary failed to give the sheriff a majority vote. The choice is clear—another four years of the current sheriff’s administration or a new administration based on professional police management.” McConville is a retired chief of the MTA Police Department.
Tendy Budgets a Raise for Himself, Cuts for Trustees
by Michael Mell The Putnam Valley Town Board held a budget workshop on October 7, 2009. The first of four budget-related meetings, it will be followed by another workshop on October 14, a preliminary budget public hearing on November 4, and a final budget hearing l a t e r i n N o v e m b e r. E a c h meeting will incorporate board and public comment to create the final budget to be presented to town residents. Supervisor Tendy, working with Director of Finances Marianne DeSantis, has prepared a draft budget for 2010, which was the subject of the workshop. Ms. DeSantis made a brief preface to the discussion by informing the board that the draft 2010 budget will be 5.02 percent larger than the 2009 budget. In spite of a one percent decrease in expenditures, the chief factor the budget-to-budget increase is a significant reduction in town revenues. Supervisor Tendy summed up the matter succinctly, saying “that expenditures are down, but revenues are down further.” Tendy also praised town departments saying they “have all worked to reduce [their] budgets as much as possible, because they knew the town was facing a revenue shortfall.” Councilman Gene Yetter asked the reasons behind the loss of revenues. DeSantis reported that the depressed housing market has resulted in a significant drop in mortgage tax income. Property tax revenue is also down due to foreclosures and people leaving their homes. The last factor is a reduction in interest income from investments. Supervisor Tendy stated that the proposed budget is “pretty lean” and added that the new MTA tax will be another drain on fiscal resources. Beginning a discussion of specific line items, Councilwoman Wendy Whetsel called attention to a proposed salary increase of $3,500 for the Town Supervisor. Citing “bad economic times,” she suggested a freeze on all salar i e s . Te n d y a c k n o w l e d g e d that capping salaries during difficult economic times is a prudent measure. He went o n , h o w ev er, to s tate th at the supervisor’s salary has not increased since 2003. Tendy also identified some town department heads whose salaries were in excess of that paid to the supervisor. “$3,500 does not mean much for me,” Tendy said, “but the increase is important for the position.” Tendy described the salary range for town supervisors in other towns as ranging between $110,000 and $130,000. “The salary must be commensurate,” he said, “with the qualifications required for the position.” Closing his remarks, the supervisor said, “I know the board does not agree with me on this issue, but I felt
Oscawana Clean-up Funding in Sight Reviewing
by Eric Gross Lake Oscawana water quality will be pure once again now that the House of Representatives approved a $400,000 grant as part of the 2010 Agriculture Appropriations Act. News of the 263-162 vote came from Congressman John Hall, who visited the lake last May to view the problem firsthand and meet with local community leaders. Hall said the grant would allow Lake Oscawana to be “saved. The lake is at the heart of Putnam Valley and is a valuable resource. Without the federal funding, the lake will die.” Lake Oscawana’s water quality has been declining for the past 40 years and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation concluded that remedial measures had to be taken immediately. Hall said the federal funding would support a rehabilitation plan commissioned by the Lake Oscawana Civic Association: “Plans call for removing existing phosphate in the lake and preventing new (See Oscawana on Page 11)

Smalley’s Inn, located on Gleneida Avenue in downtown Carmel
Ghost Stories and Good Food Make Smalley’s a Halloween Favorite
by Joe Lindsley Jr. Smalley’s Inn on Gleneida Avenue is steeped with the rollicking history of Carmel, more so than any other structure in the hamlet. Besides feeding residents and visitors since 1852, Smalley’s has served variously—and sometimes simultaneously—as the town’s hotel, bank, saloon, and morgue. But the history at Smalley’s may be present in a more real sense: Some former patrons reportedly have opted to stick around long after departing from this world. Today, ghost hunters make pilgrimages here seeking the spirits who continue to haunt the old inn in the heart of Carmel hamlet. If you stop in the restaurant for a meal or head to the bar for some spirits, chances are the staff will tell you the
The October 6, 2009, C o l d S p r i n g Vi l l a g e B o a r d workshop sandwiched an hour-long executive session between procedural matters and acceptance of a bid to perform electrical work at several village buildings. The meeting began promptly at 7pm with a review of outstanding bills in advance of next week’s monthly meeting. This review process, implemented earlier this summer, is consistent with the board’s commitment to streamline procedures and processes and to achieve a more real-time picture of village finances. It will allow any discrepancies, errors, or questions to be resolved prior to the monthly meeting. Also moving in the direction of improved financial a c c o u n t a b i l i t y, t h e b o a r d discussed a bookkeeping adjustment to establish revenue and expense lines for some new and other ongoing accounts.

Working Families Backs Putnam Candidates
by Michael Brendan Dougherty The Working Families party is one of the newest and fastest growing “third parties” in New York State. Formed in 1998 by a coalition of labor unions and organizations such as the highly controversial Association of Community O rg a n i z a t i o n s f o r R e f o r m Now (ACORN), the party focused immediately on issues like raising the minimum wage in New York State, often winning small but significant victories. The party has a growing presence in traditionally Republican Putnam, and with a ballot line secured in New York State until 2011, the party has been able to flex its muscle in Democratic primaries in many parts of the state. The most prominent Republican on the 2009 Working Families line was Sheriff

Constitution Island Eyed by National Media
Special to the PCN&R Constitution Island was featured on a national television network last Friday and Saturday. Doug Kennedy, a reporter for the Fox News Channel and the tenth child of Robert F. Kennedy, visited Constitution Island to interview Richard de Koster, executive director of the Constitution Island Association. Kennedy, who has worked for Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for 12 years, said it was his first visit to the island. “I personally have had the privilege to see many great sites of the American Revolution,” Kennedy told the PCN&R. “Unlike most of them, Constitution Island has not only recreated the history, it has preserved the history. That fact alone, in my opinion, ranks Constitution Island along with Concord, Bunker Hill, and Saratoga in defining American Independence.” In a piece that aired last Friday and Saturday, Kennedy and de Koster spoke about the history of the island, which featured prominently during the Revolutionary War. The island is still part of the West Point garrison, and is a proud part of the military academy’s heritage. A chain strung from the island to West Point helped prevent British ships from sailing up the Hudson and dividing the colonies in two. Given the history of Constitution Island, West Point has taken great pains to preserve its historic nature and recently spent a significant sum of money to pave the island’s roads with a special surface that preserves the look and feel of a dirt path. Throughout the 19th century house on the island was home to the famous Warner sisters, known for their literary and gardening pursuits, as Kennedy reported. Anna Warner also wrote popular hymns including the world-renowned “Jesus Loves Me.” The Warner home is currently shuttered for necessary preservation and restoration work, and de Koster informed the national audience that donations are welcome.

South Highland Methodist Church is Collecting Coats
The United Methodist Churches of Cold Spring and South Highland would like to introduce Pastor Margaret (Peggy) Laemmel to the community. Pastor Peg, as she likes to be known, was born on Plattsburgh Air Force Base, NY, on December 19, 1960. She moved to Riverdale, NY when she was about 3 and then moved to Croton-on-Hudson when she was 7, where she graduated from high school in 1978. She attended the University of Denver (1978–82) where she double-majored in theater and philosophy with a minor in education. She then moved to Washington State, working at teaching jobs for about four years. She moved to Japan when she found an overseas teaching position and there she married Shunsuke Arita. She has two children Issei, 20, who is attending college in Japan, and Masumi, 12, who lives w i t h h e r. P a s t o r L a e m m e l lived in Japan for 16 years and during that time taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in universities, children’s schools, community centers, and for Yokohama city. In 2002 she returned to America, with the intention of continuing her teaching career in America, but was then called to ministry in the United Methodist Church. She attended Union Theological Seminary, attaining her Master’s of Divinity in 2007. As well as her ministry with the United Methodist Church she also holds a fulltime administrative/teaching position with Education First International, in Tarrytown: an ESL school for adults who wish to improve their English in an immersion environment. This is her first appointment and she is very excited to be here. “I have been given a very warm welcome by both churches,” she says. “I have been told that we have several events coming up which I am looking forward to: The Halloween party in October, followed by All Saints Day of course; the craft fair in November; the hymn sings in both November and December with pot-luck; plus our Advent and Christmas services. One of my great hopes for my time here is that I will be able to lead our church (myself included) into a greater spiritual practice. As a Christian community, especially as a people called Methodists, our call in our lives, church, and community, should always reflect the mission of the Gospel of Christ – To love God with our whole beings, and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.” Long-time church member Barbara Moore says Pastor Peg is wonderful. “Her sermons talk about everyday life. Once you hear her speak, you’ll want to come back next Sunday.” Pastor Laemmel has started a Bible Study, which will run through November 20. The classes will meet after the service on Sunday from 1 to 2pm. The subject will be “Living the Gospel of Mark.” During the class she plans to explore the Gospel and also how to make it relevant to daily living through prayer and practice. The class is open to all members of the community, not just members of the church. The South Highland UMC is again collecting coats for the needy in our community. Gently used coats in good condition can be dropped off at the church on Snake Hill Road (near Route 9/Garrison Golf Course) on Sunday mornings (worship service at 9:30am) or placed in the collection box on the outside steps of the church at anytime beginning October 11. The coats will be gathered and then distributed through the Philipstown Food Pantry at the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown in Cold Spring. The collection will conclude o n S u n d a y, N o v e m b e r 1 5 . For questions or more in formation, please call Pat Harrington at 424-3096. The South Highland UMC will also be giving to Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Purse Shoe Box Project. For more information on this project please go to the website www.samaritanspurse. org or for more information or to donate, please contact Pat Harrington at 424-3096. Shoe boxes or items will be received until Sunday, November 15 at the church, they will then be delivered to the collection point at Grace United Methodist Church in Putnam Valley prior to being shipped out to the children all over the world.

Roda, one of the organizers of the Cold Spring event, had this to say afterwards, “It was just wonderful! We had a nice cross-section of people—fami-
lies with children, teenagers, singles, seniors—who all came together to pray for Our Lady’s continued blessings on our beloved nation.”

A Hauntingly Beautiful PHOTOcentric Exhibit: Secret Garden at the Depot Juried Photography at GAC
Chanted spells, windswept moors, secret sorrows, and restless spirits are only a few of the magical and mystical e x p e r i e n c e s t h e a t e r- g o e r s will face in The Secret Garden, a Tony award-winning musical about loss, life, and the magic of hope, which floats into the Depot Theater on Friday, October 23 for a four-weekend engagement. A special Halloween matinee celebrates the season by inviting the audience to come in costume for $5 off the ticket price. The Secret Garden is not just for children…and not just for adults, either. Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden follows the exploits of the young, forlorn Mary Lennox, as she brings back to life, not only a garden, but also those who surround her. The story was adapted for the stage by Marsha Norman (book and lyrics) and Lucy Simon (music). The Depot Theater’s production of The Secret Garden is directed by artistic director Nancy Swann. John Coffey lends his incredible depth of talent to interpreting the breathtaking score as musical director. Veteran set designers Chris Nowak and Dana Kenn conjure a special kind of visual magic for audiences with their video p r o j e c t e d s c e n e r y, w h i c h , when combined with intricate lighting by technical director Donald Kimmel, create an “other-wordly” atmosphere. Amy Dul choreographs the show's hauntingly stylized dance sequences and period costumes designed by Charlotte Palmer- Lane add to the aura of authenticity. Jim Conrad adds his steady hand as stage manager. Two Depot Youth Theatre actors graduate to center stage in this production: Isabella Convertino stars as Mary Lennox, and Charlie Plummer is Colin Craven. The show also stars Chris Whipple as Archibald Craven and Jenn Levy as Lily. Depot regulars Laura Bach, Ann Deblinger, Cat Guthrie, Julie Heckert, Liz Keifer, John Lane, Sterling Swann, Hugh Scully, Ron Schnittker, and Jim Coakley round out the cast, as well as new faces to the Depot stage Michael Byrne, Zach Fineblum, Alison Rooney, and Phelan Maguire. They are joined by young Depot stage regulars Lucy Austin, Campbell Ives, Jocelyn Lane, Kaelin Martin, and Marina Martin. Please call the Depot box office at 424-3900 to reserve your tickets as the Depot conjures up some primal magic and springs to life with this hauntingly beautiful musical. Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm, from October 23 through November 15. Tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for seniors and children.

Tr a d i t i o n s o f W h i s k e y Production in the Hudson
P i n t e r ’ s D u m b Wa i t e r i s Staged at Arts on the Lake
Join hosts J. and Renee Heim for a Putnam County Historic Society Young Associates event documenting the story of whiskey production in the Hudson Valley. On Saturday, October 17, at 5pm, Ralph Erenzo, co-founder of Tuthilltown Spirits, and his son Gable will share their insights about the tradition of whiskey manufacturing in New York State, its relationship to the land, and why traditional batch-distilling is both an art and science. Attendees will also get to sample Tuthilltown Spirits line of Whiskeys: Bourbon, Rye, and Corn. They are the only legally distilled and aged grain spirits produced in New York since Prohibition. The Young Associates is generously sponsored by Old Stone Kitchens and Country Flooring, www.countryflooringny.com. All proceeds from this event support the Putnam County Historical Society. Tickets for this event are $40 per person, $70 per couple, or free to Young Associates members. For more information, please visit www.pchs-fsm. o r g o r t o R S V P, p l e a s e call 265-4010. The Putnam County Historical Society & Foundry School Museum is located at 63 Chestnut St. in Cold Spring. Arts on the Lake is partnering with the Liberty Free (NY) Theatre to present Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter's play The Dumb Waiter at the Lake Carmel Cultural Center, 640 Route 52, for three performances, Friday through Sunday, October 16-18. The Dumbwaiter, the play that established Pinter as a master of “comedy of menace” is about two hit men, played by Michael Frizalone and Paul Jannicola, holed-up in a dingy basement kitchen, waiting to be sent out on their next job. Paul Austin has directed this production. English playwright, screenwriter, actor, director, and political activist Harold Pinter (1930-2008) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. Beginning with his first play, Pinter's writing career spanned over 50 years and produced 29 original stage plays. The Friday and Saturday performances are at 8pm and the Sunday performance is at 3pm. Tickets, $12, may b e p u r c h a s e d a t w w w. a r t sonthelake.org. Reservations may be made at: firstname.lastname@example.org. or by calling 845-228-2685.

The Putnam County News and Recorder
Kudos to the Board
Letter Sent to Philipstown Board Members reprinted at the request of the author: I write in admiration and praise for the thorough and thoughtful work you have undertaken on the draft zoning plan over the past several years. Not only have you reached out to every constituency and Philipstown stakeholder in developing the plan, but you and these participants have taken great care to keep it consistent with Philipstown’s patiently developed and excellent 2020 Comprehensive Plan. As we approach the final steps toward implementation of the plan, I note what appears to be a last minute organized effort on the part of a few to derail the plan. Where have these folks been? I hope the Board will consider the points made, but not see this as any sort of a groundswell in opposition to the plan. Douglas H. Banker GARRISON

Brian Kenny is Not Forgotten
To the Editor: As the large signs went up this weekend I realized that Brian Kenny was not listed on the signs as a candidate. Brian is one of Philipstown’s assessors and is running this year unopposed. No one can deny that he is knowledgeable about the assessment process and a hard worker, which is clearly reflected by the absence of an opponent to challenge him. That he is not on the signs does not mean that he is not supported, but rather that he is universally supported by all!

but is based on the views of residents as expressed in open debate through public hearings, meetings, and workshops over a five year period, and reflects community interest in conserving natural resources and protecting the rural character of Philipstown, while fostering a strong local economy. While the Comprehensive Plan is a guide, it is not the law; it identifies goals for the community and recommends in a general way how these goals can be achieved. In contrast, the Zoning Code implements those goals and translates them into law. We are now at the point of adopting a new zoning law that, as New York State requires, is in keeping with the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed new zoning is a logical extension of the Comprehensive Plan, though there are details yet to be worked out. In particular, the Board needs to address the significant concerns recently voiced by business owners whose properties in the new law would be changed from commercial to residential. The current intense debate is welcome, and like Mr. Salcedo (PCN&R Perspectives, Sept 30), I too hope that the process of working out these details will leave the town united and stronger. The Philipstown Build-out Analysis (see http://philipstown.com/town-code/philipstown-buildout-analysis ) tells the story of what may happen to Philipstown, and the subsequent burden on taxpayers, if development proceeds in a haphazard way without restraint and if our zoning code remains as is. The proposed new zoning law is designed to maintain property values and keep taxes from soaring, to give us tools for growth management and control over the development that does occur in Philipstown.

the community. The sensibility of electing a political newcomer like Terry Polhemus lies in her deep ties to the community and her ability to speak the language of the common people, the working people. The Town has a major project on the table with the proposed zoning code changes. The Town Board needs strong voices to speak up, unafraid to question. For instance, I have observed the Planning Board in action, where there is a diversity of voices, unafraid to hold opposing views, to debate the applications before them, always with the interest of protecting property rights. We need to see the same democratic process occurring on the Town Board, instead of inaudible discussions and unanimous votes. I must admit that I was once silenced when I questioned the zoning code amendment for soil mining overlays at last year’s public hearing. So I am speaking up now. If you don’t like the proposed zoning changes, then elect new and stronger voices that will question for you. Last week, Joselle Cunane wrote that “Transparency in decision making .... and respect for opposing decisions are hallmarks of responsible leaders.” Let us elect strong and r e s p o n s i b l e l e a d e r s , Te r r y Polhemus and Joselle Cunane.

Why not use our tax dollars for things that will benefit our community, instead of using them to fend off people who want to turn it into yet another overcrowded suburb? Our best hope for encouraging local businesspeople, while keeping Philipstown’s priceless character and beauty, is to elect Richard Shea, Betty Budney, and John Van Tassel. Richard Shea has skill, experience, intelligence, and the ability to anticipate and remedy trouble before it begins; he attends workshops and seminars, obtains grants, and in short, is the kind of Supervisor Philipstown needs to guide it through the years ahead. He is a local businessman, and his team will have the ability to work with people of all opinions. Terry Polhemus and Joselle Cunane, while they may be fine candidates, will do nothing but fracture the Town Board and make any positive changes that much harder to obtain. Suzie Gilbert GARRISON

But on other days, she was at the town clean up sites in her jeans, sorting the trash that we’d brought in. There was no job too big or little for Betty. Over the years, I came to realize that she truly understands the communitarian as p ect o f d e mo cr acy — an d realized that everybody has to pitch in and do their part.

New Zoning Will Keep Taxes Low
To the Editor: Richard Sporbert raised an important concern about the new zoning in last week’s PCN&R, when he worried that “as working class residents we will not be able to own a home on several acres with taxes that only the wealthiest can afford.” But the surest way for his troubling scenario to come true would be for us to do nothing about the zoning laws of Philipstown. Why? Because relatively uncontrolled growth like that allowed under the existing laws leads to increased taxes for schools and infrastructure. This is one of the primary reasons why counties all around us have higher taxes than we do. The Town Board is in the process of changing the draft of the law to reflect legitimate concerns of business owners, and residents of the community need to continue becoming informed and expressing their views. However, let’s all keep in mind that the only way to keep taxes down and preserve the character of our community is by adopting a forward-thinking zoning plan to stop the kind of runaway development whose damage we see so starkly in the comm u n i t ie s j u s t to o u r n o r t h and south.

Candidate Cunane Needs Platform, Record
To the Editor: It is always dispiriting when candidates for public office choose to put attacks on their opponents ahead of solutions that can move a community forward together. Sadly, this seems to be the direction Joselle Cunane wants to go. In last week’s PCN&R Ms. Cunane railed against Richard Shea in harsh, personal language. She becomes enraged because Richard asks his fellow citizens to keep our zoning discussion civil and focused on the issues, instead of being distorted for a fear-and-smear political campaign. Anyone who has watched Richard work tirelessly on the Town Board during the past eight years knows that inflamatory partisan politics is just not his way. Doesn’t Ms. Cunane see that demanding “respect for opposing opinions” while smearing Richard for ask ing his constituents to search for higher ground meets most criteria for hypocrisy? Voters would prefer hearing what, specifically, she has in mind for our town, as well as how, exactly, she has contributed to dealing with our town’s issues. For example, people who have attended town meetings regulalry for the last eight years can’t remember ever seeing her. Was she engaged in the workshops for the Comprehensive Plan? Does she have any public record of accomplishment at all, let alone one that can compare to Richard’s eight years as the hardest working board member we’ve known in a long time? Since Ms. Cunane also calls for transparency, why does she avoid mentioning in her campaign material that she is running as a Republican? This election should not be based on party loyalty, but shouldn’t she be open about whoose opinions she stands for? Candidate Cunane would do us all, including herself, a service to tell us what she’s for and what she’s accomplished, instead of attacking those who show up every day getting things done responsibly and respectfully.

Shea Ticket will Preserve Town Character
To the Editor: Ye a r s h a v e p a s s e d s i n c e the Comprehensive Plan was started. People of all opinions have already put thousands of hours into it. The Philipstown government has spent a great deal of money hiring an expert to set up and monitor the entire process, just to make sure that it would be fair to everyone. Now—suddenly— the “Concerned Citizens of Philipstown” are up in arms. Everyone I know supports the local businesspeople (well, most of the local businesspeople, anyway) as they are a valuable and integral part of our small town. Nobody wants to take their rights away, unless their rights include breaking local laws and turning Philipstown into an extension of Fishkill. Local people who follow the rules, instead of deliberately flouting them, have nothing to fear from the Comprehensive Plan, which is not even finished. The people who should fear it are the out-of-town developers who simply want to arrive, make a boatload of money at our expense, and leave, or the new residents who want to build something so huge and hideous that it threatens to attract others just like it. Harris Schwartzberg, who didn’t live here, wanted to build a small city where the Garrison Institute and Philipstown Rec now stand. Dominic Santucci, who didn’t live here, wanted to blast away part of a mountain so he could build an oversized subdivision. Alfredo De Vido, who doesn’t live here, is still trying to take over a town road and shoehorn an illegal number of houses onto one small plot of land. Currently we have a minor celebrity building a high school-sized monument to herself in Garrison. Shall we eagerly await the arrival of Paris Hilton, or can we finally set a few enforceable rules? Instead of spending huge amounts of tax dollars fighting people like these, why not let the Comprehensive Plan—written and worked out by a cross-section and majority of residents—state right from the beginning what is and isn’t appropriate for Philipstown? The type of development described above is what will quickly turn our

While raising $10,000 in this economy is truly an amazing feat, it’s not surprising considering our wonderful community. I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for this event—the 120 tickets purchased, the yummy platters donated by local food establishments like Cold Spring Pizza/Deli, Silver Spoon Café, Cup-o-ccino, The Foundry Café, Whistling Willie’s, The Main Course, Angelina’s Pizza, Foodtown, Le Bouchon, and Cathryn’s Tuscan Grille, and the various donations to make our silent auction a success. Even in these tough economic times we still received various donations to make our silent auction a success. Many of our local merchants, such as the Country Goose, Payning by Caryn, and Women’s Work, continued to give back to the community while new b o ar d memb er s n etw o r k ed tirelessly for silent auction donations of innovative services, products, and artwork provided by many Haldane parents. Haldane art teacher Jean Cendali had grades 1 and 2 paint beautiful birdhouses that were auctioned off as well as the very popular homework passes by Elementary Principal Maggie Davis. As I watched the sun set over the rolling hills at Glynwood Farms and the people mingled inside and out waiting for the right moment to bid on their favorite silent auction item, I realized this event may have been organized by the Haldane School Foundation but our success is due to our dedicated community.

It’s Time For a Moratorium
To the Editor: After completely reading the Comprehensive plan, the E A F, a n d t h e P h i l i p s t o w n Zoning Law draft a few times, consulting with many experts, speaking to many of our elected officials, and speaking to over 200 property owners, many things are clear to me at this time. Unfortunately, the proposed Comprehensive Plan and the Zoning Law draft, are not one of them. CHARGE TO THE SPECIAL BOARD OCT 4, 2001 1. It will be concise, readable, and attractively illustrated What IS clear to me at this time is that NOBODY finds these documents to be clear to understand, concise, or easy to read. The plan is a result of a lot of hard work, dedication of over 200 people (less than 1% of the town), and a lot of taxpayer’s money. There was no Environmental Impact Study done and no economical and social impact study done. There was not a complete build out study done that included commercial build out. Answers on the environmental impact form (EIF) were answered incorrectly. Although this is a draft at this time, feelings run high on whether we can actually tweak this document or totally rewrite it to make it a document that can be clear and concise, and reflect the the goals of the majority of the property owners of Philipstown. No elected official should be able to vote on one of the most important documents ever voted on in the town of Philipstown before they can be 100% educated with the proper studies, making sure that the document reflects wants and (See Letters on Page 7)
Support Cunane and Polhemus
Dear Editor: Too many politicians just don’t get it. Government spending at the local, county, state, and federal levels is spiraling out of control. At the same time, taxes continue to climb through the roof, forcing many families to leave this beautiful area and keeping other young families like mine from being able to buy their first homes. Our community needs quality leadership that will make the tough choices to keep spending in check and higher taxes at bay. Barbara Scuccimarra is doing a great job standing up for the taxpayers of Philipstown and working to eliminate unnecessarily duplicative costs by exploring shared services with other communities. But she cannot do it alone. Taxpayers need other strong advocates on the town board, and we need Joselle Cunane and Terry Polhemus. They will stand up for us.

To the Editor: My family has been in the H u d s o n Va l l e y f o r a l o n g time and 16 years ago my husband and I moved back to Cold Spring. Little did we know when we purchased the Church Street house that we were moving in between two of the most important families in the town. Angelo and Helen Percacciolo and Betty and Mackey Budney. Angelo clued us in on who was who and who did what. Betty started right out telling us that we had to get registered. It didn’t seem to matter to her which party we joined (though she was happy to find out we were Dems), just that we understood that it was our responsibility as citizens of the town to get involved. Over the years, I would ask Betty questions about Philipstown—about the dirt roads, about all of the state land. She always gave me fair, thoughtful, balanced answers, including the fact that she lobbied state officials for 16 years to get the state to pay taxes on stateowned land—our open green spaces—she wasn’t totally even handed on everything. Not only did she clue me

needs of the majority of the town; that all members of the board can completely read and understand these documents; and that the document is also clear and concise enough for every property owner to read and completely understand what the ramifications will be, if enacted. It is my conclusion that until the proper studies are done and we can determine the best course of action to take, there should be a moratorium put in place. My conclusion is the opinion shared by hundreds of property owners that I have spoken to, and I am sure hundreds of others that I have not. The new zoning laws are going to affect the beauty and character of Philipstown for decades to come. Let us not handle this process in haste. Placing a moratorium in effect now should be one of the most important items on the schedule for our board members. So ask your elected officials if they 100% understand these important documents and what their position is on a moratorium? I can t e l l y o u t h a t Te r r y P o l h emus, who is running for the Town Board, WILL look out for the majority of property owner’s rights and push for a moratorium.

W h e n WA C c h a i r p e r s o n Matthew Mastrantone spoke out about the controversial sub-division on steep slopes in Continental Village, to be constructed by an applicant whose name appeared regularly in the paper in Westchester for an illegal strip mine, Matthew Mastrantone was reprimanded and asked to resign because the leadership of Philipstown lives in Cold Spring Village and on top of East Mountain where they would be unaffected by their decisions. Mark Mastrantone C O N T I N E N TA L V I L L A G E would otherwise go to other municipalities and most of all, he has the experience to run meetings, create budgets, and oversee the day to day operations of our town. Is his opponent even remotely qualified? Does he have any record of public service, or for that matter, to even run a meeting or manage a significant budget? Betty Budney is one of the most dedicated public servants that you will ever meet. She is a tireless worker with a proven history of dedication to this community. If you need just one reason to vote for Betty it would be her persistence in procuring State reimbursement for lands taken off of our tax rolls. This was a huge win for the taxpayers of Philipstown. John VanTassel may be a new face in town politics this year but is also a proven, dedicated public servant demonstrated by his continued volunteer work with the North Highlands Fire Dept. As Chief he had to oversee budgets, run meetings, and deal with the public. John also runs a successful business and is well respected by his peers and customers alike. He is a person who will listen and weigh concerns before making decisions and will make a great addition to the town board. Kevin McConville’s history in law enforcement should speak for itself. He has worked from the bottom up and has all the experience needed to run the sheriff’s dept. He is dedicated to his field and to this community. All the candidates on the Democratic ticket have deep roots in this community, have raised or are still raising families here, have shown dedication and love for this community and most of all have experience. Take a look at the other candidates. What experience do they have? What have they done for this community in the past? How much volunteer time and effort have they spent to better this community? What understanding do they have of local government? If you are seriously comparing candidates and not only looking out for the present but for the future of Philipstown, then this election should be a no brainer. Vote the Democratic ticket. Dave Merandy P H I L I P S TO W N to think. And worse yet, you WILL be the next victim! Or that what they want you to believe. McConville ads are trying to scare you. Maybe it’s in the Halloween spirit! He wants you to believe that crime is going up in Putnam County every year. That is such a lie; he should be embarrassed to have even said that. The truth is that overall crime actually has gone down in Putnam over the eight years Sheriff Smith has been in charge. Look at the statistics. Last year there was a slight uptick as there were in many counties across the state which often occurs in bad economic times. But crime has been significantly lowered during the course of the Smith administration and that is the truth. He wants you to know that DWIs are up as if Don Smith is serving them the liquor and it’s his responsibility. Actually DWI arrests are up. And why is that? Because law enforcement in Putnam County is more vigilant and is watching for violators of our DWI laws and making more arrests. And taking these drunk drivers off the road. He says homicide is up. Again he wants you to think the Sheriff is pulling the trigger. Arrests have been made in the limited situations where a homicide has occurred. Those crimes were solved by the Sheriff’s department. None of these crimes could have been prevented by the Sheriff or anyone else, except the criminal pulling the trigger. But the perpetrator(s) have been apprehended. Arrests in general are up in the County. That means law enforcement in the county continues to improve. The deputies are working hard, making the arrests and the District Attorney is prosecuting these criminals. When Kevin McConville was “Chief” with the MTA, what were his crime statistics? If you check the record, you will see that crime went up and down at times during his tenure. I would assume he committed none of those crimes. However, if you follow the logic of his advertisements, he probably should have been unceremoniously dismissed from the MTA police because of the incremental increases in MTA crimes under his watch. He wasn’t! If you buy into the logic of M r. M cConville’s ads , w e should probably blame him for the MTA tax! Truth in advertising please boys. Putnam County is still the second safest county in the State of New York. The second safest! Don’t let Kevin McConville scare you. Vote for the only man running for Sheriff who has experience in this position. We need Sheriff Don Smith to be re-elected. William Nugent P H I L I P S TO W N
Better Zoning is Essential for Philipstown’s Future
It is with great interest that I have listened to the concerns raised by members of the business community at the zoning workshop several weeks ago, and read the let -
ters and Perspective piece in recent editions of the PCN&R. As the director of a small non-profit with three employees, I also operate a small business. We depend upon the products and services of the businesses in our commercial corridors and villages, and personally I’m proud to number many of these business owners and employees as my friends and neighbors. My involvement in this community began 36 years ago when, as a West Point cadet, I looked across the river and found myself awed by the beauty of the “east bank.” I still marvel daily at the remarkable nature of this community to which my family moved nearly ten years ago. Like the residents and business owners who worked many years to ensure the Philipstown Comprehensive Plan reflected all community perspectives, I believe it is the right blueprint for the To w n . I t c h a l l e n g e s u s t o pass on to future generations a place of spectacular beauty, unspoiled natural resources, and a vibrant economy fueled by locally-owned businesses, with a commitment to a supportable level of taxation. It is very much a document that promotes the idea of com-
PV Can’t Afford a New School Library
To the Editor: After reading ‘PV school board questions new library’ and my blood pressure started to return to normal I could not help but wonder what makes anyone think – educator, parent, or citizen—that a multimillion dollar HS/MS connective building with a new library, is justified. The photos of the existing high school library show a spacious modern facility that according to the assistant superintendent is under-utilized. Why then is another library space contemplated, at a cost of millions to we taxpaying citizens? A similar connector/library space was cited in Chelmsford MA as cutting edge. A little research discloses that Chelmsford has a thriving business, industrial, and shopping tax base that offsets the school tax burden on their citizens. Chelmsford has a commuter rail station, several busy highways, shopping and commercial centers described as “congested.” Putnam Valley by contrast has a lower median income, almost no commercial, industrial, or shopping and no commuter rail station. It is obvious that if there are concerns from our PV citizens about the affordability of an absolutely essential firehouse, then how could anyone justify building a multimillion-dollar addition to our school that is not essential. The kids already have a beautiful library on premises that is underutilized. Concerns about students traveling the few yards between buildings should be tempered with the fact that these are teenagers, not senior citizens. Bottom line is that this PVHS school administration acts like the regime of George III, Grenville, and the stamp acts. Taxes upon even higher taxes with no thought at all for the current economy, the taxpayer’s well-being or ability to keep paying. The school officials are deluded that PV, with no commercial tax base, could or should even consider this multi-million dollar project. If we have any spare pennies they should go to our volunteer firemen’s project. Esther McHenry PUTNAM VALLEY
Let’s Retain Small Town Character
To the Editor: We love Philipstown for its people, its beauty, and its good heart. The vigorous process of democracy that goes on here is one of Philipstown’s strengths because we’re small enough to engage first-hand in our local government. Right now we’re engaged in a big noisy discussion of the draft of the new zoning law that the Town Board has p r esented f o r p u b l i c c om ment. People have questions, mainly: Why do we need a new zoning law? To answer that, we need to go back to March 2006 when the Town Board passed the Comprehensive Plan of Philipstown. Town Board members and volunteers from the community worked hard in countless meetings for over six years to write it. The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to enable Philipstown to retain its small historic river town character, to support people of different ages and incomes, and to protect our outstanding natural resources and scenic beauty. In order to implement the Comprehensive Plan, the Town Board then appointed a Zoning Advisory Committee, which has worked hard for the last two years (more countless meetings!) to make the zoning law of Philipstown conform with the Comprehensive Plan. The draft of the new law is now up for public comment. The draft may not be perfect yet. That’s the whole point of public comment. People discuss, agree, disagree, whisper, yell, inform, misinform, and just generally carry on. That’s part of the process. We hope that the result of all of the healthy hullabaloo will be the passing by the Philipstown Town Board in the next few months a new zoning law that implements the Philipstown Comprehensive Plan. Jean and Claudio Marzollo COLD SPRING
munity “we” rather than the individual “me,” while still protecting property owners’ rights. I am surprised by what I’ve heard from a number of speakers at the zoning workshop, and by what I have read in some of the letters to the PCN&R. Some of our fellow residents feel that these two goals, economic vitality and community preservation, are incompatible. I don’t agree. It is the special character of this community, as clearly articulated in the simple goals of the Comprehensive Plan, which makes us all want to continue to live in Philipstown, motivates tourists to come (with their money to spend at local establishments), and keeps revenues ahead of expenses for much of our Town’s economy. The new zoning must, and will, create a balance of mutually reinforcing goals: preserve our quality of life AND ensure that businesses can continue to flourish. The first step must be to address concerns raised by our business owners, about commercial properties be ing rezoned to residential in the draft zoning maps. These maps can be readily changed so that commercial livelihoods and property values are not jeopardized. And the overlay zones, intended to protect the natural and scenic resources in the larger residential districts, should not apply to the various office, commercial, light industrial and mixed use districts; these maps, too, should be changed to reflect this. I fully support these revisions and encourage the Town Board to act on them
promptly; as well as, based on issues identified through public comment, clarify the ambiguous language in a few other sections. Despite these known defects, all of which can be simply dealt with at the Town Board’s direction, the new zoning code is a vast improvement over the old. Having attended nearly every planning board meeting during the past five years, I have seen firsthand the problems caused by the current code—for applicants, the planning board, and the public. Only the lawyers and professional planners fully understand the current code, and it is the source of protracted “struggles” in subdivision and business projects, with extraordinary expenses borne by both the applicants and the taxpayers. But more important than the clarity of the zoning language, is the impact of the revision. The proposed law will address the nearly non-existent protections currently afforded to our aquifers and drinking waters. It will reduce residential density in some places and increase it in others, meaning we can better control the number and location of new houses when Philipstown ultimately reaches full build out. Fewer residences mean less pressure on services, less traffic on roads and lower enrollment in schools—all of which mean that taxes will rise m o r e s l o w l y. L a s t w e e k ’ s lead PCN&R article, citing Putnam County as the 10th most taxed in the nation, should have gotten everyone’s attention when it listed
Westchester and Rockland, where near full build out is a reality in a number of municipalities, as having even higher taxes than Putnam. That’s our future, if we heed the calls for “keeping things the way they are,” the zoning revision is scrapped, and our current 1960s era traditional suburban-style zoning continues to guide future growth in Philipstown. Carefully written and community-approved land use guidelines serve to protect a c o m m u n i t y ’ s c h a r a c t e r, enhance the quality of life for residents, supports the business community, and shield, rather than stifle, landowner rights. Rejecting zoning law revision will not lead to greater economic growth; instead it will lead to faster degradation of the values and goals embraced by residents through the Comprehensive Plan. It will also hasten the day when some of us, my wife and I included, will have to leave Philipstown due to crushing taxes and reduced quality of life. Let’s get to work and produce the best outcome for our Town by improving our zoning law. Yes, the draft law and maps need more refinement, but I’m conf i d e n t t h e To w n ’ s l e a d e r s will do what’s necessary to get it right for our future.

MTA Tax is Unfair Burden
To the Editor: I am working in my office filling out the forms for the one of the many new taxes imposed on us, the lucky ones who live in the metro area of New York City. This tax is called the Quarterly Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax. A good name used to disguise the purpose of the tax, which is to keep the cost of a subway ride (which should be four or five dollars) at $2.25. In the case of our business, this tax will be darned close to $2000 payable on November 2. Now this is money that we as business operators are required to pay despite the fact that our employees, for the most part, do not use public transportation. Why are the business operators required to pay this tax and not the employees who use the public transportation services? Because politicians are feckless sniveling cowards who know there would have (See Letters on Page 8)
Philipstown Dems are Obvious Choice
To the Editor: I’m writing in support of the Philipstown Democratic ticket for the upcoming election. I do not vote strictly party line. I base my vote on who I feel is the best-qualified candidate and who I feel has the best interest of our community and surroundings at heart and this year it is a no brainer. Richard Shea has a proven track record. He understands the diversity of our community, is proactive in saving Philipstown money and in bringing in revenues that

‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’
Installment Two in which Ichabod Crane is introduced
In this by-place of nature there abode, in a remote period of American history, that is to say, some thirty years since, a worthy wight of the name of Ichabod Crane, who sojourned, or, as he expressed it, “tarried,” in Sleepy Hollow, for the purpose of instructing descending upon the earth, or some scarecrow eloped from a cornfield. His schoolhouse was a low building of one large room, rudely constructed of logs; the windows partly glazed, and partly patched with leaves of old copybooks. It was most ingeniously secured at vacant hours, by a withe twisted in the handle of the door, and stakes set against the window shutters; so that though a thief might get in with perfect ease, he would find some embarrassment in getting out,—an idea most probably borrowed by the architect, Yost Van Houten, from the mystery of an eelpot. The schoolhouse stood in a rather lonely but pleasant situation, just at the foot of a woody hill, with a brook running close by, and a formidable birch-tree growing at one end of it. From hence the low murmur of his pupils’ voices, conning over their lessons, might be heard in a drowsy summer’s day, like the hum of a beehive; interrupted now and then by the authoritative voice of the master, in the tone of menace or command, or, peradventure, by the appalling sound of the birch, as he urged some tardy loiterer along the flowery path of knowledge. Truth to say, he was a conscientious man, and ever bore in mind the golden maxim, “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” Ichabod Crane’s scholars certainly were not spoiled. I would not have it imagined, however, that he was one of those cruel potentates of the school who joy in the smart of their subjects; on the contrary, winced at the least flourish of the rod, was passed by with indulgence; but the claims of justice were satisfied by inflicting a double portion on some little tough wrong-headed, broad-skirted Dutch urchin, who sulked and swelled and grew dogged and sullen beneath the birch. All this he called “doing his duty by their parents;” and he never inflicted a chastisement without following it by the assurance, so consolatory to the smarting urchin, that “he would remember it and thank him for it the longest day he had to live.” When school hours were over, he was even the companion and playmate of the larger boys; and on holiday afternoons would convoy some of the smaller ones home, who happened to have pretty sisters, or good housewives for mothers, noted for the comforts of the cupboard. Indeed, it behooved him to keep on good terms with his pupils. The revenue arising from his school was small, and would have been scarcely sufficient to furnish him with daily bread, for he was a huge feeder, and, though lank, had the dilating powers of an anaconda; but to help out his maintenance, he was, according to country custom in those parts, boarded and lodged at the houses of the farmers whose children he instructed. With these he lived successively a week at a time, thus going the rounds of the neighborhood, with all his worldly effects tied up in a cotton handkerchief. That all this might not be too onerous on the purses of his rustic patrons, who are apt to consider the costs of schooling a grievous burden, and schoolmasters as mere drones, he had various ways of rendering himself both useful and agreeable. He assisted the farmers occasionally in the lighter labors of their farms, helped to make hay, mended the fences, took the horses to water, drove the cows from pasture, and cut wood for the winter fire. He laid aside, too, all the domitions, he was the singing-master of the neighborhood, and picked up many bright shillings by instructing the young folks in psalmody. It was a matter of no little vanity to him on Sundays, to take his station in front of the church gallery, with a band of chosen singers; where, in his own mind, he completely carried away the palm from the parson. Certain it is, his voice resounded far above all the rest of the congregation; and there are peculiar quavers still to be heard in that church, and which may even be heard half a mile off, quite to the opposite side of the millpond, on a still Sunday morning, which are said to be legitimately descended from the nose of Ichabod Crane. Thus, by divers little makeshifts, in that ingenious way which is commonly denominated “by hook and by crook,” the worthy pedagogue got on tolerably enough, and was thought, by all who understood nothing of the labor of headwork, to have a wonderfully easy life of it.
the children of the vicinity. He was a native of Connecticut, a State which supplies the Union with pioneers for the mind as well as for the forest, and sends forth yearly its legions of frontier woodmen and country schoolmasters. The cognomen of Crane was not inapplicable to his person. He was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together. His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weathercock perched upon his spindle neck to tell which way the wind blew. To see him striding along the profile of a hill on a windy day, with his clothes bagging and fluttering about him, one might have mistaken him for the genius of famine

nant dignity and absolute sway with which he lorded it in his little empire, the school, and became wonderfully gentle and ingratiating. He found favor in the eyes of the mothers by petting the children, particularly the youngest; and like the lion bold, which whilom so magnanimously the lamb did hold, he would sit with a child on one knee, and rock a cradle with his foot for whole hours together.

been a revolt if this tax had been imposed on the masses. These things must be done in small incremental snippets with little or no public comment. That way nobody notices. I read in last week’s newspaper that Putnam County is number ten in the nation for the highest taxes. It is really nice to be number ten at something. The culprit is mostly the school taxes. So if money buys good schools, then which one of our schools is number ten in the nation? Of course the town, county, and state cannot get off the hook for taxation at will. These politicians have a long history of being irresponsible when it comes to gouging their constituents. And so what. It’s not their money. No, it really doesn’t bother them at all. What with the health care tax coming and the cap and trade tax coming where will it all end. Which business will still be operating to e m p l o y a n y b o d y ? I g u a rantee that the government will still be in business. Or is that the government’s purpose—to make all of its citizens unemployed. If we all were on welfare, then the government could completely control our lives, making us 100% dependant on “them.” What will come next? Mind controlling drugs slipped into our pig flu shot, free first year membership in the SEIU government controlled union, or mortgages requiring no down payment? Oh, sorry they already tried that one. I love it when anxious planners say “we could get a grant from the government to build this project or that.” Where does this money for these grants come from? You! Just remember that fact when you complain about your tax bill and still want to spend money like a drunken politician who just got in port off the ship of fools. Tom Rolston COLD SPRING
Mastrantone Cares About the Community
To the Editor: I have lived here in Garrison for the majority of my life. Fifteen years ago I met a new neighbor who I’ve watched build a family, a business and a home here. Today we have many mutual friends and many of you know this man as well. He is the Republican candidate for Supervisor, Matthew Mastrantone. For those of you who do not know him I will say this, he is a hardworking and caring individual who has served this community as well as the county on a number of volunteer unpaid positions. Also, something that many of you don’t know i s t h a t when the Garrison Union Free School was complete with their building project and well beyond its budget Matthew completed the staircase and walkway from the school building to the new upper parking lot. He did this on his own time providing the labor and material free of charge, as well as talking me into building the iron railing to complete the job. In my own opinion he is a man who cares about the community and is willing to work hard to serve it. Dennis Rotenberg GARRISON
Zoning Needs an Enlightened Approach
To the Editor: Lisa Brown (“If You Like Freedom, Pay Attention to Zoning Changes, PCN&R 10/7/09”) appears to be alarmed by discussions about the new zoning laws, a draft of which is now under review by the Town Board. It’s not hard to sympathize with her concerns. Keeping close track of a six-year analytic process has been a challenge even for specialists. However, for fellow residents who are now becoming involved at this stage, it’s really important not to be frightened into judg-
ments about the process, the plan, and how it will affect our future. Some business owners who spoke out at the meeting Ms. Brown attended raised genuine concerns about aspects of the draft law that they believe could impact them adversely. The Town Board has so far acted responsibly by listening to those concerns and expressing its openness to making changes. This is exactly the way good town government should work. What is missing in the midst of this suddenly super-heated debate is more balanced deliberation and better understanding of what the zoning (and the Comprehensive Plan from which is emerged) is all about. The zoning plan is a complicated document, there’s no debate about it that. Wading through language about “overlays” etc can be daunting. But the underlying principles guiding the zoning are clear and logical. Most important, they result from an open process that the entire town has ratified. Ms. Brown worries that the new zoning law will prevent her from passing on her property or business to her children. That is neither intended nor acceptable. Sadly, it is also true that clever developers will seek to maneuver below a community’s radar, and they can be very adept at disguising their true intent from individual property owners. Without an updated and enlightened approach plan to zoning, our Philipstown will start to look a lot like Fishkill along Route 9. Preventing that is something I think virtually all the residents of Philipstown can agree on. Anne Symmes GARRISON
Defining Philipstown’s Character
To the Editor: Yes, the business community has legitimate concerns about the proposed zoning c h a n g e s . T h e To w n B o a r d has said they will address these issues, as well they
should. The Comprehensive Plan, along with proposed zoning changes, are dealing with with the bigger picture; the future of Philipstown. I spent eleven years on the Conservation Advisory Council for the town, then resigned. It became clear that present zoning laws were ineffective, and barely enforceable. Countless times I saw developers trash the wetlands, destroy steep slopes, clear cut steep slopes causing storm water to damage neighboring properties and town roads, and construction sites polluting streams. The amount of times developers tried, and did circumvent town zoning and environmental laws. The reason? Money, without any regard f o r c o m m u n i t y. T h e s e a r e the reasons to update zoning laws. Taxes—a conservative estimate shows that any house that isn’t worth $700,000 will raise school taxes. Any house below $700,000, does not generate enough tax revenue to pay for their child’s education. Who pays? Us, the tax payers. I stand corrected if I am wrong, but I was told that fifty new students at Haldane might require a new facility. The state is operating at a huge deficit. Even if they could meet their responsibilities the tax payers, us, still would be responsible for a significant portion of the cost of a new facility. Continued and excessive residential development means—higher taxes. At the work shop regarding zoning changes, there was a man that doesn’t live in town, who constantly disrupted the meeting. Although out of order, he did ask an important question. When it was brought up about the character of Philipstown he asked “define character.” For me the character of Philipstown is defined by the land we are so fortunate to live on—The Hudson Highlands. The mountains, streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands, marshes, fields, meadows, woodlands, and wildlife; the beauty. While all around us is suburban sprawl, we live in a vital intact, rural community. Good schools,
clean air and water, and a wonderful place to bring up children. So many good people who share their kindness and caring. So many people who careabout their neighbors as well as themselves. These are the issues that the Comprehensive Plan, and new zoning, Addresses. Come to the workshops and public hearings. What’s at stake? Our future! Philip Vartanian N O RT H H I G H L A N D S
Not Afraid of PV’s Many Challenges
To the Editor: The November 3 election is one of the most important in the history of Putnam Valley. At stake is the ability of the taxpayers to regain control over a town government that is rapidly outpacing our ability to pay for it. There’s never been a more crucial time to rein in out-of-control spending and yearly tax increases. I’ve been a taxpayer advocate for over 20 years. I fought against the proposed sludge plant, construction of a new town hall, out-of-control school spending, and a police department we couldn’t afford. I also helped establish the Lake Oscawana improvement district that was formed to preserve the lake and protect the property values of residents. Some things that will need to be addressed by the next administration: *New Firehouse & Town Hall. For obvious reasons, the politicians refused to put these multi-million dollar projects up for a vote in an election year. The Fire Department has spent over $111,000 on the architects and signed a contract for another $435,000. There are detailed plans and specs for the building, and some approvals have been given. Despite what Wendy and Bob say, there’s enough information to put this up for a vote, so that WE can decide whether or not we want to pay for 2 new facilities that could potentially bankrupt our town. *The Mess at Oregon Cor-
ners. It’s about time that something is done about this potential Superfund site which has blighted our community for decades. The property owner has not paid taxes for over 14 years, yet he continues in business, Repairing the wall at taxpayer expense didn’t remedy the ongoing violations—drive by the garage and see for yourself. Yet our town board paid this property/ business owner thousands of dollars for repair work on town owned vehicles, even though they knew or should have known that he owed over a quarter million in taxes! *Comprehensive Plan and Town Code. We had some of the best and brightest volunteers on the Comprehensive Plan Committee. We paid a fortune to the engineers and consultants, yet we still don’t have our new Code. Instead, the volunteers were dismissed and their work product turned over to a hand-picked group o f “ Wo r d s m i t h s ” w h o a r e privately making revisions to a law that could change o u r t o w n f o r e v e r. T h e T B has been revising the Code piecemeal, making amendments that don’t reflect the land use policies of the Plan. Who benefits from this other than special interests who like things just the way they are? We are at the turning point when it comes to doing something about restoring our town governance to its rightful place and giving the power back to the People. I understand the problems we face and am not afraid to work towards their resolution—it’s a matter of having the courage and the will to do so. Patty Villanova PUTNAM VALLEY
Sleepy Hollow Festivities Bring the Legend to Life
Sleepy Hollow country’s classic Halloween extravaganza, Legend Celebration, takes place over four days and nights, Oct. 17-18 and 24-25, and features a familyfriendly daytime program and a spookier evening program starring the Headless Horseman.

MARK P AW E R A
Candidate, Putnam Valley Highway Superintendent My name is Mark Pawera and I am running for Putnam Valley Highway Superintendent this November 3. I have lived in Putnam Valley for over the last thirty-five years and decided to run for this position after watching all the resources wasted (both money and time), with only mediocre results to show. It is time for professional management to restore efficiency, accountability, and transparency to the Highway Department. Taxes in Putnam Valley are unbearable for many people, and the Highway Department is the single largest departmental appropriation in the town’s budget. Given the current economic downturn, now more than ever the taxpayers deserve better than being asked to fund an ever-increasing budget just to maintain the status quo. Since 2001 the Highway Department appropriations budget has increased by 64% without any comparable increase in the quality of services delivered. This is no longer acceptable. Many of our town’s roads are deteriorating. The maintenance of our roads directly impacts not only the safety but also the health and financial welfare of the residents of our town. And environmentally, the overuse of road salt and other de-icers pose a threat to our wells, lakes, and streams, and lead to the premature deterioration of our roads and to the rusting and corrosion our bridges and vehicles. I believe our town already has sufficient resources and talented personnel. With my leadership, I can get road repair and maintenance back on track by: Instituting basic maintenance practices for both roads and equipment, such as cleaning out culverts and catch basins, and cutting back of road side vegetation and removing dead trees. These past maintenance failures have heavily contributed to the premature failure of many of our roads and must be a top priority. Lengthening pavement life through the use of standard construction practices and modern technologies. When roads are scheduled for repav-
Candidate, Putnam County Sheriff I grew up in Putnam County and still live here with my wife and three children. At 15, I watched a police officer save a man’s life by giving him CPR. It was then I chose to “protect and serve.” At Marist College, I earned a BS in Criminal Justice and, later, earned an MA in Public Administration. Now I have devoted 29 years to law enforcement… from patrol officer…through the ranks... finally becoming Chief of MTA’s Police Department with a staff of 768. After retiring in January, 2008, I was urged by friends in law enforcement to run for Sheriff. A major reason I decided to run was the 34% increase in crime during 200608, reported by NY State’s Division of Criminal Justice. I decided to campaign for Sheriff to serve my home county, my family, and friends. If you honor me with your vote, I am committed to transforming training methods and practices, and requiring annual refresher training— which is not now effectively managed. It’s clear that the current lawsuits against the Sheriff’s Department are primarily a failure of the current Sheriff to effectively train and manage the Department’s personnel. Regarding the ongoing lawsuit concerning the suicidehanging of a young inmate, the NY State Commission on Correction stated clearly: “Sinkov’s death could have been prevented had proper suicide prevention precautions been taken and had department policy and procedures been properly followed.” Remember, this lawsuit has already cost you and other taxpayers the fees for Putnam’s lawyers. If the jury requires, you will also pay plaintiff’s lawyers’ fees and penalty compensation… all because “policy and procedures” were not followed. Plus, Karen Meltz’s lawsuit was settled September 15— and taxpayers will pay all those costs too. Another lawsuit is underway by plaintiff Linda Dezan Nelson against the County, Sheriff Donald B. Smith, etc. You are already paying Putnam’s lawyers there. In addition, Sheriff’s Deputy Barbara Dunn has just been indicted, partly because of things being decided in Nelson’s lawsuit. If you elect me sheriff, I c o m m i t t o y o u : t h e S h e riff’s staff will be thoroughly trained on their duties and loyalties…policy and procedures…not once, but every

Candidate, Putnam Valley Town Board I moved to Putnam Valley about 12 years ago. I chose PV because of its rural beauty and because, back then, it w a s a ff o r d a b l e . A l o t h a s changed since then. At that time, we were a Town of the 2nd class. Our population was well below 10,000. Now, it’s approaching 12,000. To put that in perspective, our population increased by about a third in a little over 10 years. I don’t know about you, but that scares me I began getting involved in my community not long after I settled in. I started going to Lake Peekskill Civic Association meetings. I got involved in the lake testing, and ultimately I began going t o To w n B o a r d m e e t i n g s . That is not a surprise. My history is one of involvement. From the time I was a young boy I worked in campaigns for candidates I believed in, those that fought for human rights, civil rights, people in need. I worked in Schumer’s first campaign for Congress, in Brooklyn, where I grew up. I was involved in the civil rights movement, the anti Vietnam War movement (I wanted our soldiers home, alive), the migrant workers’ struggle, and tenants’ rights struggles. I believe that everyone deserves a fair deal. I studied chiropractic, and later became a teacher so I could make a difference. Back to Putnam Valley and the present. I see some real threats to this Town that I love. Perhaps the greatest of these is the steeply rising taxes. So many of our neighbors have been forced from their homes. And so many more are struggling to stay, but are on the brink. Every time I see a new for sale sign go up, my heart aches. These people are the fabric of our Town, our communities, our neighborhoods. When they leave, they take a little bit of us with them. We are all damaged by their departure. That is why I have been involved for years in t h e e ff o r t t o g e t t h e s t a t e to change the way we fund schools, to make it fair, based on a person’s ability to pay, not the value placed on their home. There is nothing more important to our neighbors than changing that. Additionally, we must do everything possible to slow the rising taxes. That means

Candidate, Putnam Valley Town Board Local government should work for the people who live in this community. Creating a community means more than stale politics and talk. It means respect; citizens should not be bullied, they should not feel threatened or intimidated when they speak up at public meetings. They should be listened to. People should not be afraid to express their opinions. It means planning; at long last, a new Zoning Code based on the Comprehensive Plan. It means accountability; I will hold Town Government accountable for every tax dollar spent. It means fairness and equity; even-handed treatment for all, and inclusion of everyone. It means respect for and preservation of our environment; open space should be preserved, our fragile lake and stream communities should be protected and we should find humane solutions to problems that may arise when we encounter wildlife in our rural town.

I also pledge to achieve Accreditation for the Sheriff’s Department – a valuable program sponsored by NY State’s Division of Criminal Justice Services. The main principles are: 1. To increase the effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement agencies… 2. To promote increased cooperation and coordination among law enforcement agencies and others in the criminal justice system… 3. To ensure the appropriate training of law enforcement personnel… 4. To promote public confidence. If you and other voters elect me Sheriff, I commit to you, we will have a much stronger involvement with your communities’ elected leaders. We will coordinate saturation patrols with local and state police, and we will target those small offenses that, if neglected, lead to more serious crimes. Our community meetings will be open to the public, so citizens can have a say about their own safety and security. We will also strengthen our work with schools, making them a safer place for our children. We will partner with community resources, businesses, MADD and SADD to educate our youngsters about the serious dangers of “Driving While Intoxicated.” We will prepare prosecutable cases against those who use the Internet to commit crimes—including sexual predators, identity thieves, etc. Every respected law en forcement chief I know says that professional, ongoing training is the solution to almost all the current problems under the failed leadership of Don Smith. Endorsements by respected groups help introduce a candidate – and I am very pleased to have received endorsements by: 1. NY State Chiefs of Police Association—unanimous. 2 . A F L - C I O We s t c h e s t e r / Putnam Central Labor Body – unanimous. 3. Association of Commuter Rail Employees—with whom I worked at MTA. Finally, I will make “Professional and Accountable” the daily motto of the Sheriff’s Department…professional in our knowledge of the law and our duties…and always accountable to you.

developing less, evaluating the tax implications to our residents of every development we approve, and working to reduce the impact as much as possible. An important step in that process is passage of the zoning code, which has been stalled for the past two years by our current Board. Development causes other problems as well, including more traffic, litter, damage to our viewsheds, threats to our water supply a n d q u a l i t y, l o s s o f o p e n space and biodiversity, and loss of our beautiful night sky to light pollution. About 8 years ago, I was one of the founding members of Friends of Peekskill Hollow Road. What started as a small group of concerned residents has grown into a f u l l b l o w n m o v e m e n t . We may actually have persevered long enough, and steadfastly enough, that the county is really listening. I hope that one day soon, our concerns about Peekskill Hollow Road will be a thing of the past. Rest assured that saving Peekskill Hollow Road is not only important for the beauty and character of the road, but for the survival of our Town as we know it. I have been a long time advocate of septic remediation, critical to the continued health of our lakes, streams, and drinking water. For the same reason, as Supervisor, I tried to get the Town to ban fertilizers with phosphors. Unfortunately, none of the members of the Board w o u l d g o a l o n g . N o w, f i nally, the Board is doing just that. While Supervisor, I also procured significant grant money to help with the Comprehensive Plan expenses, the Zoning Code expenses, new salt spreading machinery to save both money and our environment, and solar cells for Town Hall. I believe that keeping our environment healthy is critical to keeping ourselves healthy. Vo t e f o r m e , a n d I w i l l continue to work for you, not for the special interests that all too often are the ones government serves.
all afford to stay here, and so that this beautiful and fragile environment is protected. We cannot afford to continue to limp along from budget to budget, cutting fund balances, cutting blacktop budgets, and cutting snow removal and then, lay the blame elsewhere. I believe that our Comprehensive Plan set up a roadmap for us, and that we need to plan our future, implementing that Plan to move us forward. When Mr. Tendy dismissed the successful Comprehensive Plan committee, he squandered an opportunity for us to progress. (He did it merely for the sake of his own political agenda. If you don’t do it his way, your opinion is not welcome.) My opponent has been serving on the Town Board for 7 years. Look at the changes in this town. Look at your tax bills. Businesses can’t hold on. Some can’t even get going. Residents are being forced out. Foreclosures leave a debt that the rest of us have to pay. We have environmental scars where developments have been started, and will not be completed any time soon. And in spite of our economic crises, we are stuck in a holding pattern, lots of talk, and even more politics. Residents genuinely trying to voice their concerns are bullied at meetings. And taxes keep going up. The same old thing is simply not working. If you believe, as I do, that we can do a better job for the entire community, then I am the clear choice in this election. We have reached a critical moment for our community. These are difficult times for many people, for our Town, for the country. We can continue to just talk about the problems. Or, as a commun i t y, w e c a n w o r k t o w a r d that future. I believe that I have real solutions for Putnam Valley and I would be honored to have the chance to work toward these solutions. We have an opportunity. This year, let’s move beyond empty talk and stale politics.

Candidate, Philipstown Supervisor As the Republican candidate for Philipstown Supervisor, I want to thank all the citizens who have shown their faith in me by signing my petition. I promise that I will not disappoint you. I can relate to Philipstown residents on many levels. A s a t r a d e s m a n o p e rating a business in Philipstown, I am concerned about proposed changes in the zoning law that will inflict hardships on business owners. As a resident of Philipstown, I am concerned about protecting the property rights of its citizens and improving our tax base. I oppose drastic changes to the town’s zoning laws. Local business owners have voluntarily done a heroic job in enhancing their properties with plantings and attractive fencing. I believe that peer pressure will suffice better than more laws to get cooperation from any business owners who fail to keep their premises attractive. I see no conflict between business and homeowners. E a c h r e l i e s o n t h e o t h e r. Philipstown needs the revenue from businesses, some of which have found the town so unfriendly to business that they have left. One longtime vacant building speaks volumes about the hostile business environment that exists in Philipstown. The real conflict is not between business and homeowners; it is between these two groups and what I call “the land barons” who are taking a disproportion a t e s h a r e o f l a n d o ff t h e tax roles. You will find that I am far more a listener than a talker. A town supervisor has to listen rather than preach and hold court or he will not understand the problems of his constituents. I believe I have the tact and perseverance to improve relationships with the county, state and federal governments and agencies with which the town works with. Fiscal responsibility is a must. Expensive consultants and poor budget oversight should be things of the past. I am not afraid to stand
P OLHE MUS
Candidate, Philipstown Town Board Terry Polhemus has been a highly visible and active member of the Philipstown community for nearly 25 years, but this year she has taken a determination to serve her community to a new level, standing as a candidate for the Philipstown Town Council. “People who know me well have frequently told me that I am a hard worker who can be counted on to get the job done,” she said in explaining her decision to run for office. “I take great pride in getting the job done—and done right—and that’s what the people of Philipstown will get from me.” Continuing, she said, “I will serve this community with diligence and integrity by insisting on a balanced government that acts uniformly and fairly for all residents. I will be fiscally accountable by closely examining all aspects of town expenditures, looking for ways to make our hard-earned tax dollars work most efficiently for all of us. Finally, I will stay committed to each resident—young and old—to make Philipstown a place where we can afford to live and raise our families in a manner that protects the beauty and vitality of our community.” Theresa J. “Terry” Polhemus moved from her native Long Island to Philipstown in 1985. Almost immediately she began her service to the community by joining the Garrison Volunteer Ambulance Corps where she served as a volunteer EMT and 1st Lt. for four years. By 1990 she had earned a teaching certificate from the State Board of Health and the American Heart Association and began teaching dozens of emergency responder classes to fire, EMS, and police personnel in Putnam, Dutchess, and Orange Counties. Continuing her own education, she attended the Nyack Hospital Paramedic Program where she earned certificates to teach Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric and Neonatal Advanced Life Support. Terry taught at Nyack Hospital until it closed and also at Dutchess and Rockland Community Colleges and dozens of Fire/EMS facilities in Putnam County. One of her proudest ac-
J OSELLE C UNANE
Candidate, Putnam Valley Highway Superintendent My name is Earl Smith and I am running for a fourth term as your Highway Superintendent. I take pride in my honesty, integrity, and vast experience. I have worked for the Putnam Valley Highway Department for 30 years at various capacities. I have lived in Putnam Valley all my life and I love this town. I have been married for 31 years and have three grown children. This is my 50th year as an active member of the Putnam Valley Volunteer Fire Department. I would like to tell you about some of my accom plishments since I took this position. I have built a wash building. This is where our equipment is washed to prevent oil and salt from seeping into the ground. The water is also recycled. Ground sensor equipment is in our newer trucks to regulate the proper amount of salt being distributed for the ice and snow conditions. Our highway department is one of the first to use liquid de-icer to melt snow and ice which greatly reduces the amount of salt used. There is also an anti-corrosive
Candidate, Philipstown Town Board When Joselle Cunane moved into her Continental Village home some 20 years ago, she was a little surprised to find that many of her new neighbors thought they lived in Peekskill. In the years that have passed, a lot of things have changed. Mail to Continental Village addresses now goes through Garrison. Phone calls require an “845” area code. One thing, however, has not changed in nearly two decades: The Continental Village section of the town has not had a representative on the Philipstown Town Board. “I want to change that,” she said. I feel my neighbors, my part of the town, should have the same connection to town government that residents of Cold Spring, Garrison, and Nelsonville have always had. “I think that all board members have a responsibility to consider the overall good of the town and its residents when official action is contemplated, but a councilperson that has a perspective on how proposed legislation may impact a resident or a neighborhood, has a much better chance to soften some of the impacts,” she said. One example that Ms. Cunane cited is the continuing controversy over efforts to repair washed-out areas of the Old Albany Post Road. She stated that most of the residents of the southerly portion of the Town recognize the need for repairs to make the road adequate for fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles. “But, special interests determined to keep the road surface unimproved, continue to fight even basic repairs,” she said. “This makes many residents of this area potential hostages to severe weather and other potentially disastrous conditions.” She emphasizes that her
up for principle, as I did when I was a member of the Conservation Advisory Council. I opposed a controversial subdivision/strip mine in Continental Village to have been built on steep slopes known as Mountain Trace when the issue came before the Planning Board. I had pointed out that the town encourages development in the already overdeveloped Continental Village because of the resulting new tax revenue while denying existing property owners from making even the most minor changes to existing homes. I am proud of being asked to resign from the Conservation Advisory Council because I stuck to my guns in defending the rights and safety of existing property owners. A s a p a r e n t o f f o u r, I am extremely supportive of youth programs, including education and recreation. I have two children with physical handicaps. Therefore, I relate to parents who have children with special needs. I am a lifelong Republican; a member of the Putnam County Department of Consumer Affairs Board; parent representative member of the Committee for Special Education for the Garrison Union Free School District; member of the Concerned Citizens of Philipstown, past chairman of the Philipstown Wetlands Advisory Committee. My wife, Janine, and our four children enjoy with me the benefits of my membership in the Garrison Fish and Game Club. I would very much like to have the opportunity to work hard to improve Philipstown for the good of its citizens. I believe I can accomplish a tremendous amount if I am elected town supervisor.

complishments was serving as director of operations for S l o p e r- Wi l l e n A m b u l a n c e Service in Dutchess County. While maintaining active status as a paramedic, Terry managed a staff of 135, established operating budgets, and oversaw the construction o f a n e w E m e rg e n c y S e rvices Facility. At the same time she worked on vehicle specifications and purchases, she conferred with numerous town officials to expand the ambulance services to include Unionvale, Beacon, and East Fishkill. She was instrumental in obtaining the coveted Certificate of Operation from New York State, which allowed the service to finally bring Advanced Life Support to Putnam County in 1997. Throughout her years of civic and medical activity, Terry also maintained a more normal role as wife to her husband, Charles Polhemus II, and mother of two daughters, Amber and Brittany. P r o f e s s i o n a l l y, Te r r y serves as the full charge office administrator and Chief Financial Officer of three family-owned and operated businesses, all connected with construction and maintenance of buildings. The construction business has been around a long time with the earliest record dated 1825, and, Terry notes, “The property owned by my husband has been in continuous family ownership since the 1680s according to documents given to us by his grandmother.” Terry’s service to the community includes work on the Route 9-D Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan; service in volunteer “Pizza Lunches” at Garrison Union Free School; work on fundraisers for numerous local organizations, and most recently a three-year position as treasurer for the Putnam County Historical Society and Foundry School Museum. She also holds an active membership at the Garrison Fish and Game Club.
overall concern for the town is that it be governed in an honest, fair, and fiscally conservative way. “I think that board members with special expertise should share their talents with their constituents.” “I am a lifelong health-care professional and I have some thoughts about health-care delivery in the town,” she said. She cited, health-care delivery, maintenance of public roads and facilities, and recreational opportunities as among the important areas she will concern herself with once elected. “I thought it was great on the Fourth of July to stand along the riverfront in Cold Spring watching the Clearwater and the River Rose docked side-by-side,” said Cunane. “I was proud that we had the people and the expertise to put a temporary dock in place when a permanent fix couldn’t be done in time.” “That’s the kind of government we need. I want to be there for the people.” Cunane’s long record of service indicates that is just what she does. Last March, Cunane was selected Grand Marshal for Peekskill’s 20th Anniversary St. Patrick’s Parade. She had been working on the parade, behind the scenes, organizing cruises, selling journal ads and tickets to the installation dinners, and keeping an eagle’s eye on the committee’s finances. She made sure all those little, but important things got done. It didn’t take the committee long to determine that the search for a “special” Grand Marshal for the 20th Anniversary began and ended at her front door.
agent added to our deicer which is less harsh on our vehicles as well as yours. This year we used a fairly new blacktop which uses about 14% less oil to make. It requires lower temperatures to make, which produces less pollutants in the atmosphere. I personally oversee all the town’s road and drainage projects. I promptly respond to all complaints and concerns from our residents. I strongly encourage the public to call my office at 845-526-3333 with any problems or concerns that they may have. With 97 miles of roads to care for, I would like the citizens of Putnam Valley to be my other eyes and ears and assist me in spotting problems to correct. With your support, I will continue to serve the citizens of Putnam Valley to the utmost of my ability. Thank you for your consideration, again, on this Election Day, November 3.

GUFS Board Reviews Goals
by Michael Mell A large portion of the October 7, 2009, Garrison School Board meeting was devoted to a review of goals identified in the 20082011 Long Term Plan. Through this revolving plan, long- and short-term goals are meshed into an ongoing mix focused on the continuous improvement of the district. Each of the goals is supported by “objectives” that identify the means of implementing these goals. Described by board president Anita Prentice as the “start of an extended interactive process,” the review is a precursor to upcoming public meetings to establish this year’s goals. Using one of the school’s SMART boards, Superintendent Gloria Colucci identified the six current goals identified in the 2008-2011 plan: • Support an educational e n v i r o n m e n t t h a t e n c o u rages academic, intellectual, and creative development; • Support an educational environment for board members, administration, faculty, and staff that encourages personal growth and professional development opportunities; • Promote and support the social, emotional, and physical development of the whole child; • Develop effective means of communication to inform all constituencies of the district’s community through use of technology, print, audio and video media, meetings, and personal contacts; • Promote and support recreational, extracurricular, instructional, and co-curricular activities for students, parents, and community members; and to continuously seek to improve fiscal and operational management of the school district. Ms. Colucci identified the objectives associated with each goal and described to the board the specific implementation of each. While the goals have remained virtually identical to last year’s goals, some of the objectives, such as celebrating the centennial of the school, were completed last year. The board discussed these at length, confirming the suitability and appropriateness of each, and in some cases suggesting other activities to be applied in support of the goals. At an earlier meeting Vice President Eric Jacoby suggested that while new goals should not ignore those of the past, neither should they merely be a rubberstamp continuation. The result of Jacoby’s suggestion to find a new approach to the process is a set of public meetings that will be held at various times and places over the next 2-3 weeks. There was no discussion of what guidelines the board will use at those meetings to guide the discussion. One of the board goal objectives was demonstrated as Ms. Colucci described a number of “active learning,” or hands-on, activities undertaken by students and teachers since the start of the term. The seventh grade traveled to Anthony’s Nose for Snap-Shot Day. Sponsored by the NYS Department of Environmental Protection, the snap shot this year was “a day in the life of the Hudson River.” Students from a number of schools participated to gather soil and water samples, which will be sent to Columbia University for analysis. Other outside-theclassroom activities included a kindergarten trip to the pumpkin patch, apple picking for grades 1-5, and a lecture by astronaut Bill McArthur for grades 6-8. Two recent events gave rise to board discussion of policies directed toward fundraising and amendments to meeting minutes. The Garrison Teachers Association has asked permission to solicit “spare change” for the Maria Fereri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. Containers would be placed in the main office and the Superintendent’s office. At issue for the board is the appropriateness of soliciting charitable contributions for a third party on school grounds. Aside from potential liability issues, board members expressed concern that students may feel pressured to contribute. The consensus of the board was to approve the GTA request, but Trustee Raymond O’Rourke urged that future consideration be given to a review of board policy in this regard. Meeting minutes were the issue for parent and board meeting stalwart Gordon Stewart. In its broadest terms, the issues is whether meeting minutes should be in narrative form or more narrowly defined to include only agenda items, board actions, and broad-brush acknowledgement of public comment. His concern, raised at the last board meeting, is that board minutes did not accurately reflect events. During the August 16 meeting, he had asked that the board provide him with a copy of the lawyer’s opinion regarding whether the board might seek legal remedy regarding the “no respect” Tshirts (worn by teachers prior to the contract settlement.). Speaking on behalf of the Board, Ms. Prentice said that the information would be provided. The minutes, however, only described Stewart’s request, but not Prentice’s response. Mr. Stewart’s contention is that since the question was included, then so too, should the answer. At the Sept. 16 meeting the board said it would review those minutes and respond to Stewart g. In this instance, the board elected to amend the minutes to reflect both the question and the answer. Board concern, expressed by trustee Cannon was that a more narrative approach was a very slippery slope. What guidance would have to be given to the District Clerk who takes the minutes? Would this subject the board to myriad request for amendments? Current policy states that the minutes should present a “clear and complete” picture of meeting events. All agreed that the policy, as currently written, does not give sufficient guidance and that the policy should be reviewed and amended in light of this discussion. The next meeting is October 21 at 7:30pm at the Garrison Schoolhouse.
Leibell Named Putnam’s ‘Good Scout’
by Eric Gross For nearly three decades of public service, State Senator Vincent Leibell exemplified this tenet of the Boy Scout oath: “To help other people at all times.” Last week, 125 people were on hand for a breakfast at the Mahopac Golf Club when the senator received this year’s Putnam County Good Scout award presented by the Westchester-Putnam Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The senator called Boy Scouting “one of the most critical programs we are blessed to have in the U.S. Our young people are America’s future and are our nation’s greatest asset. This is a program that builds character in young people and I am humbled to be so honored.” Sheriff Donald Smith serves as president of the We s t c h e s t e r - P u t n a m B o y Scout Council. He told the breakfast meeting that “scouts were leaders in character education long before it became a catch phrase. Service to others, a cornerstone of our programs, is now in vogue in schools and youth groups across the country.” Smith said it now seems that “America is finally recognizing the values that scouting has always known. Senator Leibell continues to demonstrate the Scout motto by providing us with resources needed to move boldly forward into our second century of service to the children of Putnam and Westchester.” Marc Andreo, CEO of the We s t c h e s t e r - P u t n a m B o y Scout Council, said Leibell was selected for his “outstanding community service as evidenced by his interest and leadership given to many w o r t h w h i l e o rg a n i z a t i o n s as well as the respect and esteem in which he is held by his colleagues.” The Westchester-Putnam Council will be hosting its annual Good Scout Award dinner next month in Tarrytown when Roger Ailes, Fox News Channel, and FoxBusiness Network Chairman and CEO, and owner of both the PCN&R and the Putnam County Courier, will be recognized. The dinner is planned for November 11 at the Tappan H i l l M a n s i o n . Ti c k e t s a t $300 each and are available this week by calling the council at 914-773-1135.

phosphate from entering the body of water by constructing storm-catch basins and storm drains to capture phosphate from storm runoff.” Putnam Valley Supervisor Robert Tendy thanked the congressman and “people like Steve Axinn, Kathy McLaughlin, Marty Mitchell, and others, for working extremely hard to garner the grant. Congressman Hall was the catalyst behind the effort. It is extremely important for our town and the quality of the lake. Lake Oscawana is our signature lake and if that lake isn’t healthy then the town is not healthy.” Axinn also commended Hall for “rolling up his sleeves and fighting to gain the necessary funds that will permit the implementation of the steps needed to restore our lake.” Putnam Legislator Sam Oliverio, who represents constituents in Putnam Valley, called the announcement of the grant “really remarkable. This cleanup that will bring the lake back to life was needed, regardless whether federal funds were received or not. This makes the task much easier. I congratulate all of those who worked so hard to secure the grant.” Congressman Hall said the project would be “shovelready, allowing us to put local residents to work in goodpaying jobs.” The Senate is expected to approve the legislation within the next week before passing it along to President Obama, who will sign the legislation into law.

Tr u s t e e F a l l o o n a b s e n t . At 8pm the board adjourned to executive session for discussion with legal counsel regarding contract negotiations with the Cold S p r i n g P o l i c e O ff i c e r s . The public portion of the meeting resumed at 9pm to review bids received to perform work suggested by the recent NY Power Authority Energy Services Report. More commonly referred to as an energy audit, the report a d d r e s s e d e n e rg y i s s u e s i n the town hall-police station, the firehouse, and the water and sewer treatment plant. Common to all buildings is a need to increase or upgrade insulation and install e n e rg y - e ff i c i e n t l i g h t i n g . The estimated costs for remediation will be covered by a $45,000 grant to the village. The village issued two bids: one for the electrical work and the other for insulation. Only one bid was received for the first and none for the second, which will require that it be bid out again. The qualified bid, in the amount of $12,800 by Pidala Electric, was accepted by the v i l l a g e b o a r d . Wo r k t o b e performed includes replacement of existing fluorescent lamps with energy-efficient lamps, replacement of all incandescent lamps with compact fluorescents, and installation of motion sensors to prevent operation of the lighting when rooms are unoccupied. Pidala’s proposal anticipates completion of the work in a little over a week. The monthly meeting of the board will be held on October 13 at 7pm at the C o l d S p r i n g Vi l l a g e H a l l .
Two Nelsonville Men Charged in Fracas
The Village of Cold Spring police reports the arrest of two men from Nelsonville. On October 10, 2009, at approximately 10:30pm, Police Office Walz of the Cold Spring police responded to a call for two males fighting in the street near the intersection of Route 301 and Fishkill Ave in the village. PO Walz arrested Jed Corless of Nelsonville and Tim J. Corless, also of Nelsonville. Jed Corless was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Menacing in the 3rd Degree, and Public Intoxication and Criminal Trespass in the 3rd degree. Ti m o t h y J . C o r l e s s w a s charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, and Public Intoxication. Both subjects were arraigned in the village of Cold Spring Justice Court in front of Judge Costello and remanded to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Correctional Facility, Tim J Corless on $2,500 and Jed Corless on $5,000 cash bail no bond.

it was important to include anyway.” Councilman Yetter commented on a proposed reduction that would reduce a council member’s first-year salary f r o m $ 1 3 , 0 0 0 t o $ 11 , 5 0 0 . Tendy admitted that his was “an arbitrary number,” used to explore whether the board would be willing to “take a cut.” Yetter responded that he would “rather lose board benefits than see the salary r e d u c e d . ” H e o ff e r e d t h a t this would be an easier place to make cuts and added that he “would look more favorably on a pay raise for the supervisor if this savings were taken.” Acknowledging that benefits are not usually awarded for part-time positions, Mr. Tendy noted that board members put in “a lot of time for a part-time job” and so are entitled to benefits. Ms. Whetsel continued her push to hold the line on salaries, given the economy. M r. Te n d y r e s p o n d e d t h a t all personnel identified for increases worked “above and beyond” their job descriptions; some, literally, taking their work home. Whetsel remained firm in her convictions; she restated her belief that when town residents have seen their pay reduced or lost their jobs, it is inappropriate for the town to award pay increases. The board agreed that these items would be revisited as the budget process continues. Supervisor Tendy suggested that the board review the entire budget again to see whether any further reductions in expenditures can be found. Tendy also raised the possibility of offering employee buy-outs as a means of reining in future budgets. Acknowledging that we “can’t force anyone to retire,” and accept such a package, “it could result in savings down the road.” The board appeared to agree. Ms. DeSantis added that this could also be a means to eliminate one-ofa-kind jobs that have accrued over the years. On a related note, Mr. Tendy stated his belief that the base salary for an incoming department head is not related to his predecessor’s final salary before retirement. The board concurred. The next board meeting will be held on October 14, with further budget discussion on the agenda.

c a ndidate J i m B o r k o wski, who recently withdrew from the race. “I don’t agree with their association with ACORN.” said Borkowski, “But I accepted the Working Families Party endorsement because they stand up for u n ions, an d f o r i t s s t rong environmental positions.” The Working Families party came into being as the once powerful Liberal Party collapsed in a heap in the late 1990s. “People saw the Liberal Party had been corrupted. It was a patronage machine, and they were leaving it,” said Patrick Welch, chairman of the Westchester and Putnam Working Families Party. B u t t o d a y t h e Wo r k i n g Families party has also been beset by allegations of corruption. In March, the New York Post began inquiring into the practices of Data and Field Services, which sells sophisticated voter lists, and, as the Post noted, received “most of its income from the union-financed WFP.” The Post noted that in August, Mike McGuire, the party’s treasurer, left his post. That month, the New York Times published an editorial alleging that Data and Field Services was providing the voter list at under market rates to favored candidates. Such an action would be considered a campaign contribution under federal law. In Brooklyn, City Councilman Bill de Blasio received a list for $5,000 that many competing campaigns said would cost $25,000$40,000 on the open market. Working Families is also under fire for its deep ties to ACORN, the community organization that has come under scrutiny recently for financial and moral scandals, and that played a role in the founding of the party. Last month, even the U.S. Census Bureau ended its official relationship with ACORN, which had been slated to participate in official data gathering for the decennial head count. Welch says that ACORN remains an affiliate and points out that “The Archdiocese of New York, until last year gave ACORN $1 million for their efforts helping the poor.” The Archdiocese has subsequently stopped giving money to ACORN. B u t We l c h r e m a i n s a n unapologetic defender of ACORN: “What ACORN did wrong was they registered too many poor people to vote. That is why the Republicans went after them with everything they had. It’s persecution as far as I‘m concerned, because they were helpful in electing President Obama.” The Working Families party takes its direction from its a ff i l i a t e m e m b e r s , w h i c h include unions throughout the state as well as national unions like the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Welch says that the Green Party is considered “our brothers and sisters” by the WFP, but noted that the WFP is more intensely focused on economic justice issues rather than the environment. “Many times a conservative working person will vote on a social issue,” Welch said, “but they vote against themselves when it comes to an economic issue, a living wage, the right to strike, the right to good health care.” Welch says that to a conservative he would say, “We respectfully disagree on social issues, but we feel the important issue is economic security and economic justice.” In recent years, The Working Families Party has agitated successfully for a “living wage” law for homecare workers in Westchester. Home-care workers now receive $13 an hour, or $12 an hour if they also receive medical benefits. Opponents counter that, among other things, high minimum wages force businesses, especially small ones, to hire fewer people or even shed current positions. The party sometimes runs its own candidates—Patricia E d d i n g t o n o f Lo n g I s l a n d represents the WFP in the state assembly—but more often, the party cross-endorses Democrats. Welch points out, though, that the party will occasionally find reason to endorse Republicans. The party endorsed county executive Nick Spano in Westchester at one time, and more recently they endorsed Southeast Judge Jim Borkowski for the office of Putnam Sheriff. Candidates seeking a WFP endorsement must fill out a 45-page questionnaire before appearing before a committee and any member of the party who wishes to be present for an interview. Asked what he wanted people unfamiliar with the young party to know, Welch said, “We’d like to let working people know, 1 percent of the population controls 60 percent of the wealth. When I’m talking about working people, I’m talking about 99 percent of the population. We don’t have hidden agendas. We want people to look to us as a “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.” We want to assure them that when Republicans get our endorsement, they went through a very strict process.”

Health Commissioner Says Swine Flu Vaccine is Safe
by Eric Gross Putnam Commissioner of Health Dr. Sherlita Amler has set the record straight when it comes to H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine. In an interview with Dr. Amler at the Health Department offices in Southeast, the commissioner said that calls received daily from concerned residents ask the question: “Is it dangerous? Has it been tested enough?” Dr. Amler said people must realize the new vaccine is being manufactured in “exactly the same way that flu vaccine is made each year. H1N1 is a different strain. Every year three new strains of influenza are included in that year’s vaccine. The pandemic that has struck worldwide has occurred after the decision was made as to what strains would be included in the 2009-2010 seasonal flu vaccine. Had this occurred a little earlier, the H1N1 vaccine would have been included into the regular flu shot and people would be getting a single injection and not know that it had been included.” Dr. Amler said the “risk of getting swine flu and having a serious outcome was greater than any risk a person would have from taking an H1N1 inoculation.” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted on national television last week that the current H1N1 distribution across the U.S. was a “little bumpy, but should improve by the end of the month.” M e a n w h i l e D r. A m l e r checked the latest statistics and urged pregnant women to contact their physicians: “Pregnant women are at a very high risk if they come down with swine flu because pregnancy causes the immune system to become somewhat compromised. I am concerned about this element of the population and encourage them to get a swine flu shot when available.” Dr. Amler said the bottom line was for the public to get “informed information. You want information coming from a doctor, not from a news reporter.” The commissioner also reported that the latest information received indicates vaccine production is now 10 days ahead of schedule.

Officer Christopher Tompkins responded, learning that four youths, ranging in age from 13 to 16 years old, had been robbed by four suspects near the bandstand. The victims reported that four people pulled up in a car and that three stepped out of the vehicle, approaching the youths and ordering them to hand over all their money. One victim saw what appeared to be a handgun tucked inside the waistband of one of the suspects. After relieving the victims of their cash, the three suspects climbed back into the car with the fourth accomplice and sped away from the scene, after which one of the victims dialed 911. In the early morning hours of September 24 a police officer with the City of Beacon Police Department stopped a c a r f o r a t r a ff i c i n f r a c tion that matched the broadcasted description of the suspects’ vehicle. Sheriff’s investigators subsequently interviewed the car owner and established that the car stopped by the Beacon Police was the same one used in the commission of the robbery.

Sheriff Smith was accompanied by Undersheriff Peter Conv ery, Sheriff’s Investigators Robert Ferris and John Matrician, Senior Investigator Pat Castaldo, and Chief Investigator Gerald Schramek, as well as District Attorney Adam Levy and Criminal Investigator Henry Lopez.

Noting that Putnam County is still one of the safest counties in New York State, Sheriff Smith said, simply, “I thank the blue line be hind me.” District Attorney Levy added that, in Putnam, “Criminals don’t stand a chance.”
Letters to the Editor Prompt Continued Haldane Discussion
by Michael Turton The Haldane Central School District monthly business meeting of October 6, 2009 lived up to its billing—it was all business. With an audience of just five people, trustees went through a number of routine business items in a little more than an hour. The meeting might have begun with an interesting exchange regarding the District’s recent contract negotiations with its teachers had all the parties been present, but it was not to be. In his opening remarks, District president Dave Merandy acknowledged that there had been “back and forth” commentary on the negotiations in PCN&R lettersto-the-editor in past weeks between Cold Spring resident Joe Barbaro on one side and Merandy and District vice president Mike Junjulas on the other. Barbaro, who frequently attends school board meetings but who was not present, indicated in a letter to the PCN&R that he felt the District had been “played” by the Haldane Faculty Association and complained that trustees ought to have taken a tougher stance in the negotiations. That evoked an assertive response from Merandy and Junjulas, who defended the District’s handling of negotiations and the resultant contract. In his comments last week, Merandy said that he respects Barbaro and agrees with some of his concerns. Merandy added that he intends to comment further on the negotiations and the issues raised in the PCN&R but that he will wait until the next meeting because Junjulas was not able to attend last week’s school board session. After a presentation by Director of Special Services Jennifer Wilson, trustees adopted a new Special Education Plan for the District for 2009-11. Trustee Joe Curto praised the plan as well as Ms. Wilson and Superintendent Mark Villanti for “taking the long-term view of special education.” Villanti added,“The more we can do in terms of early intervention... it’s good for the students—and our piggy bank.” Villanti has often commented in past years’ budget preparations that unknowns in special education needs can add considerably to budgets if more students than anticipated require special assistance. Trustees also heard a special presentation from Athletic Director Susan Reid, who recommended acquisition of a new textbook to guide Haldane’s Health curriculum. Textbooks may have been the be-all-andend-all in the past, but that is no longer the case, according to Reid. “It allows teachers to be creative. Teachers can use it to springboard to topics.” The new text, entitled Health & Wellness, crosses over into other areas of curriculum, includes extensive on-line resources and a CDROM package. “We’re pretty excited about it” Reid said. The new text was approved by trustees and should be in Haldane classrooms within a month. The Haldane School Foundation continues to be a friend to local taxpayers, educators, and students. District trustees passed what must be among their most favored resolutions in accepting a grant of $5,000 from the Foundation towards the Virtual High School Program. Trustees approved the creation of the Martha Lou Anders Scholarship, honoring its namesake, who taught English at Haldane in the 1960s and deid in 2008. Established by her husband, Curtis Anders of Garrison, the scholarship will be awarded to a senior student interested in the pursuit of writing and history. Villanti reported that the only task yet to be completed as part of the capital project is the insulation to be undertaken in the boiler room. Villanti also indicated that the entire budget for the project will now be reviewed. Haldane students will get a first-hand look at new technology to be employed in the upcoming elections. As she has in past years, Philipstown Town Clerk Tina Merando will make a new, electronic voting machine available to students and demonstrate its use prior to the election. Haldane will be part of a grant application along with 17 other districts. The grant would fund the bulk of a study to determine potential savings from increased sharing of out-of-district transportation services for special ed, private. and parochial schools. Haldane’s share of the $30,500 grant request is $189, or 10 percent of the required local matching funds. Trustees also discussed the benefits of participating in Regional Educational Advocacy Districts, or “R.E.A.D. Trustee Curto summed up the program: “It’s a chance to change things that are crazy!” including how education is funded. “It’s also a chance to show the public and staff that we’re fighting for more equitable education.” Trustees will consider one advocacy issue at future board meetings. Beginning next month, student representatives will attend meetings of the Haldane School Board.

SMALLEY’S (Cont’d from front pg.)
ghostly tales. In fact, they need little prompting. Owner Tony Porto might even bring out a stack of photographs taken by ghost hunters, or “paranormals,” as he calls them, which reveal the faces and faint outlines of ghosts throughout the building. The spirits, it seems, only appear through the medium of a photograph. “A lady came from Middletown, asked if she could take pictures after lunch,” Porto recalled on a recent Friday afternoon. “She found a face in the hallway, coming out of the wall!” he chuckled, pointing to a disturbed image on print-out of a digital photo. “Looks like a gargoyle!” “ Yo u ’ v e s e e n a l l t h o s e things, it will make you a believer!” But Smalley’s is not only about the ghosts. Though it looks like a bar from the outside, the restaurant is a family-friendly spot serving a variety of hearty meals, from burgers to pasta and seafood dishes at decent prices. During the weekday lunch hour, you are likely to run into the county’s key players given the restaurant’s location across from the courthouse. The bar itself is housed in a separate room with its own entrance on Gleneida. The history of Carmel is told on the walls, covered with photographs and sketches of the early days of the hamlet. The atmosphere is a cross between a Victorian pub—with privacy walls between booths—and a Cracker Barrel, loaded with artifacts such as wagon wheels, wood carvings, and a stuffed deer’s head. And each table is covered with pennies, painstakingly place under the glass by Porto himself. The inn, built by James J. Smalley, who served as sheriff, treasurer, and coroner, was used as a morgue during the Civil War—a fact that spurs the imagination of those seeking the ghosts o f G l e n e i d a Av e . B o d i e s brought back to Putnam were identified in the basement before they were moved down the road to Union Cemetery. But some say that the souls stayed at Smalley’s. In addition to the Civil War veterans, Smalley’s is reputed to be the home of the ghost of “little Elizabeth Smalley.” Some years ago, contractors digging a foundation o n G y p s y Tr a i l u n e a r t h e d the tombstone of the young daughter of James Small e y. T h e w o r k e r s b r o u g h t the stone to Smalley’s, and, according to Porto, little Elizabeth “followed it here.” Some years later, a Smalley descendent living in Manhattan came to the inn to do research on a book she was writing about her family. She brought Elizabeth’s tombstone with her back to the city, but, Porto said, the ghost chose to remain at Smalley’s, hanging out in the back dining room. “I think she used to play here when she was younger,” he said, matter-of-factly. As we sat there discussing the ghost of Elizabeth Smalley on a Friday afternoon, a shadow flew across the room. It was no shade, though; r a t h e r, a l a r g e c r o w h a d landed on the outer surface of the skylight to sip from a puddle of rainwater. Porto noted that the skylights were once the glass doors of an empty shopping center, which he installed to illuminate the room during the day. “I needed the light in here because it was too dark,” he said. In the main dining room, a large mirror hangs on the wall, imported from Europe in the 1850s. Porto said that thousands of faces have stared into that mirror over the years—especially when it used to hang over the bar. According to photographs taken by the “paranormals,” some of the faces have remained etched into the mirror, frozen in time, long after the souls have departed. On the other side of the dining room, at booth 22, a 19th century lady reportedly lingers. Porto has a photograph showing the slight outline of a ragged dress hovering next to the table. Some patrons claim to have felt tugs at their clothing. There have been other reports of strange occurrences. Porto recalled one day when every single phone on the premises —including all of the cell phones of the patrons sitting at the bar— rang simultaneously. Caller IDs displayed the number of one of the house phones at Smalley’s. Because of such events, “the paranormals come here at least twice a month, from all over the country,” Porto said. “They come in with all their equipment.” Porto acknowledged that the ghost stories might scare away some customers—some want to have nothing to do with such tales. “It’s a double-edged sword,” he said. “Some people don’t like the ghosts and they don’t come in.” Despite the ghost tales, the atmosphere is not macabre. None of the paranormal photographs are displayed on the wall, the staff is friendly, and the food is the sort that warms one up and sticks to the bones. Still, if you’re nervous a b o u t e n c o u n t e r i n g o t h e rworldly spirits while din ing at Smalley’s, you could take the advice offered by Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Upon feeling the chilling tug of a spirit at your the sleeve, “as a stranger, give it welcome,” and go about enjoying your Smalley’s feast, with the knowledge that not too long ago, in the scheme of time, that spirit, too, was flesh and blood, consuming fine food and drink, perhaps even sitting in the chair presently occupied by you.
KOSCIUSZKO (Cont’d from front pg.)
admiration of the founding fathers and, especially, of General George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. According to Storozynksi, after the Americans won independence, Washington, by giving Kosciuszko the medallion of the Order of the Cincinnati, was “passing the baton to the next farmer-general who would lead his nation against foreign invaders in the name of liberty.” His West Point garrison protected the Great Chain across the Hudson, which blocked the passage of British warship. In the end, the fortress, part of which was called the “American Gibraltar,” helped ensure that the British did not control the Hudson, which would have divided the colonies in two, perhaps making victory impossible. Washington had long recognized the Hudson’s importance; according to Storozynski, he was “so impressed by these water routes that he called New York ‘the seat of empire.’” “‘It is the only passage by which the Enemy from New York or any part of our Coast, can ever hope to Cooperate with an Army that may come from Canada … the possession of it is indispensably essential,’” Washington wrote of the waterway that was then known as the North River. West Point, a promontory at the river’s narrowest portion, still controlled by the Americans, became an essential part of the Continental Army’s defenses, and Storozynski tells us, “Washington realized that Kosciuszko had the best plans for West Point.” A graduate of the Polish royal military school, he encouraged Washington and other American leaders to create a military academy in the fledgling nation. After the Revolutionary War, Washington showed his respect for Kosciuszko with the gift of a sword bearing the engravings, America cum Vashington suo Amico T. Kosiuconi (“America and Washington are joined with our friend T. Kosciuszko”) and Mater Dei, ora pro nobis (“Mother of God, pray for us”). A native of the PolishLithuanian village of Mereczowszyczyna, in what is now Belarus, Kosciuszko traveled both Europe and America in an era where going from town to town could be an arduous task. During those wanderings, he befriended some of the greatest minds, adventurers, warriors, and leaders of the modern era. On a Virginia mountaintop called Monticello, Kosciuszko articulated his opposition to slavery in conversations with Jefferson. In the swampy low country of South Carolina, he fought in the Revolutionary War’s last battle after trekking through the Carolinas with Gen. Nathaniel Greene. In a Polish town, he discussed politics and war with John Paul Jones, the father of the American navy. Under house arrest in Russia, he earned the respect of the czar. In French cafés, he met Maximilien Robespierre and other revolutionaries and soon realized the radicalism of those crying “liberté, egalité, fraternité.” Back in Poland, he developed a more restrained motto for his native and beloved Poland, “liberty, unity, and independence.” Kosciuszko had always been keen to protect the oppressed, especially the serfs of his native land and the slaves of the land he fought to free. In his will, he provided for funds for Thomas Jefferson to free his slaves, though Jefferson never followed through with the request. Kosciuszko was also an avid defender of the European Jews, and was praised in synagogues throughout his native country. Upon taking command of the Polish army in the fight against Russia, Kosciuszko made clear his principles in a public oath taken in a Krakow square: “I, Thaddeus Kosciuszko, swear before God to the whole Polish nation that I will not use the power vested in me to oppress anyone, but only for the defense of the integrity of the borders, to regain the nation’s sovereignty, and the solid establishment of universal freedom. So help me God and the innocent passion of His Son,” he said, to which the public responded with cheers of “Long live Poland! Long live Kosciuszko!” The lifelong bachelor was haunted throughout his life by thoughts of the girl he lost, Louise, the daughter of a Polish nobleman who insisted that she marry a member of the landed nobility. While escaping one night to find a priest to marry them, her father’s guards intervened, preventing the marriage from taking place. Years later, Louise’s husband would serve under Kosciuszko’s command as he led an ultimately unsuccessful fight to keep Russia from wiping out his nation. For a brief time, with the cooperation of King Stanislaw, Poland became a beacon of liberty—with one of the world’s two written constitutions, following in the groundbreaking tradition of the American Founding Fathers. The great pro-American British statesman Edmund Burke deemed it a “masterpiece of political wisdom.” But the Polish flame of freedom was quickly put out, thanks to the work of traitors, foreign spies, and the invading Russian, Prussian, and Austrian armies. Kosciuszko, hailed as a national hero, would forever lament the loss of his nation. After receiving severe wounds while orchestrating a necessary retreat of the Polish troops as the Russians advanced toward the capital city of Warsaw, he was captured and taken to Russia. When the scheming czarina Catherine the Great died, her son freed Kosciuszko, so long as he promised not to return to the Polish cause. The hero made his way across Europe back to his blood brothers in new American nation, where he was treated by none other than Dr. Benjamin Rush. He

later returned to Europe, where he spent his final years receiving visitors and caring for the poor in Switzerland. Kosciuszko is buried in the cathedral at Krakow’s Wawal Castle. He is buried along with Poland’s greatest heroes and was widely seen as equal in stature to King John Sobieski, who led the European forces to victory over the invading Turks at the Battle of Vienna on September 11, 1683. Today, at the top of each hour in the towers of St. Mary’s Basilica in Krakow, a bugler plays the heynal, a dolorous tune, during which many in the square below pause in silence. Midway through, the song abruptly ends, recalling the death of a 13th-century trumpeter during a Mongol invasion. Through the centuries, the lament of the trumpeter of Krakow has reminded the Poles of their often difficult past. Certainly that sad trumpet tune resonated with Kosciuszko throughout his life and drove him to fight, as the Poles would say, for
“your freedom and ours.” But, as Kosciuszko himself said, a life spent fighting for liberty will not necessarily be one of temporal joy: “He who devotes himself for his country, must not look for his reward on this side of the grave!” Storozynksi’s book includes significant discussions of Kosciuszko’s time at West Point and tells the story of Benedict Arnold’s treachery: After Kosciuszko joined the Southern Army with much of his West Point work completed, Arnold schemed to steal his plans for the fortress. He was nearly apprehended just south of Cold Spring but narrowly escaped via boat to the British ships near Kings Ferry. Storozynski will speak about his book on Sunday, Nov. 8, at the annual meeting and dinner of the Constitution Island Association. Tickets to the reception and dinner, which must be purchased by Oct. 23, are $70 per person or $650 for a table of ten. For more information call (845) 446-8676.

Garrison Man Charged With Vehicular Mansalughter
A Garrison man is scheduled to appear in Cortlandt Town Court Thursday to answer charges of vehicular manslaughter and DWI stemming from a crash last month near the Westchester line that claimed the life of a Peekskill man. George Kiaha, 24, of Travis Corners Road, was arrested last Friday when he voluntarily appeared at State Police headquarters for questioning. State Police Investigator Steven Listner said authorities had been waiting for the results of lab reports and accident reconstruction analysis before proceeding with the case. He also noted that Kiaha had been seriously injured in the horrific mishap: “We wanted to give him time to recover.” Troopers said Kiaha was behind the wheel of a minivan on Sept.4 headed southbound along Route 9 when the vehicle veered into the oncoming lane and struck an SUV head-on containing six occupants. One of the vehicle’s passengers, Ralph Wood, 55, died of injuries sustained in the crash. Listner said Kiaha caused Wood’s death while driving with a blood alcohol threshold of .11 percent. The legal limit for DWI is .08 percent. Kiaha was arraigned on the vehicular manslaughter charge by Cortlandt Town Justice Daniel McCarthy and was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. The Garrison man’s attorney, Joseph Fonseca of Carmel, has questioned the amount of bail set by the court: “My client has been using a wheelchair ever since the accident. He surrendered to police voluntarily. He is married and is the father of two children and has a steady job.” —Eric Gross

The Haldane School Foundation sponsored a fabulous Quadricentennial celebration, Mutual Strangers: Henry Hudson & the River t h a t D i s c o v e re d H i m f o r students in grades K-5. The children were spellbound as they viewed the puppet play inspired by the 1609 voyage of the Half Moon under the command of Henry Hudson. Based on the logbook of the ship’s mate Robert Juet, and oral traditions of the Lenape and Mohican peoples, the story focuses on two boys. Teme Gwitet is the grandson of a Mohican chief living on the great
river called Maheakanuk. John Hudson is the son of Henry and a crewmember aboard the Half Moon. The meeting of these two boys from two different worlds becomes a way to imagine what it was like when Native Americans and people from Europe were first making contact. The performance combined puppet figures, mask characters, live mu sic, dialogue, and dance movement. Haldane School thanks the Haldane School Foundation for making this wonderful learning experience possible.

Haldane Suffers Another Tough Loss PV Gets on Track with Win over Irvington
by Mike Horton The Putnam Valley High football team picked up a 30-18 victory over Irvington Friday night in a non-league game at Putnam Valley. After two losses the past two weeks, the Tigers were able to cap a week of homecoming celebrations with a satisfying win. “Last week we were asleep most of the game,” said coach Frank Heitman. “So it was good to come out strong against a bigger class B school.” Irvington struck first, but Putnam Valley would come out strong in the second quarter. Jerry Zimbaldi put his team on the board with a two yard TD run. Then John Warden scored on a 39 yard punt return. The Tigers led 16-12 going into the half. “John Warden played well on both sides of the ball,” said Heitman. “He had an exceptional game.” Warden broke off a 70 yard TD run and followed that with a 41 yard interception return for a TD. He had six rushes for 103 yards to go along with his TD run. The Tigers finally got their ground game going, racking up 280 yards. QB Mike Nallan had 77 yards on 11 carries and Kevin Christopher had 49 yards on four attempts. In the air, Nallan went 4-for-8 for 59 yards, and Marcus Givan had two catches for 41 yards. On the defensive side, Warden had nine tackles, one of which went for a loss;, he also had a forced fumble to go with his interception. Kevin Christopher also had a good game with 10 tackles and two sacks. Travis Gembecki had seven tackles and two sacks, Jim Ready had five tackles and one sack, Anthony Tyndal added eight tackles. “We wanted to make sure the kids stayed focused and they did,” said Heitman. “Hopefully the confidence we gained from playing well this week carries over to our big game next week.” With a win PV has a chance to grab a share of the league title with Croton and Hastings. Saturday the Tigers play in Croton at 2pm.
Lady Blue Devils Gut PV Answers Questions Out a Tough Week With Statement Win
by David Watkins by B.J. O'Brien The Haldane High School football team suffered another disappointing setback on Saturday, falling to CrotonHarmon 30-7 in what was the final home game for the Blue Devils' seniors. Croton Harmon took the lead in the second quarter on a long touchdown pass. The point after attempt was successful and the Tigers had a 7-0 lead. A touchdown run and point after attempt later in the quarter made it 14-0. A field goal by CrotonHarmon in the third quarter increased the lead to 17-0. The Tigers scored again on another long touchdown pass in the third quarter. However, the point after kick was blocked and the score was 23-0. A long touchdown run and extra point by the Tigers increased their lead to 30-0 late in the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils finally got on the board with a 13 yard touchdown pass from Rafael Famighetti to Frank Fusco. The extra point made the score 30-7. Famighetti, who is one of Haldane's best all-around players, was starting at quarterback for the first time this season. Fusco, who had been the starting quarterback, was moved to receiver. Head Coach Tony Percacciolo said that the change was made in an effort to try to shake things up on offense for the Blue Devils, who fell to 0-5. "We wanted to come up with a different look," he commented in an interview after the game. He also pointed out that his offense didn't use any plays involving tight ends. Coach Percacciolo added that this decision was made because his team has been weak at that position this season. "Our tight ends were not getting the job done," he said. Although the teams played a scoreless first quarter, the fact that Croton-Harmon had more players did start to take its toll on Haldane. Having a larger team meant that the Tigers had more depth. More depth makes it easier for a coach to keep his players fresh because he can do more substituting. The Tigers are also an experienced team that has known success over the last few years. "We went against a team that has been very successful," Coach Percacciolo said, adding that the experience that the Tigers had combined with the lack of experience that his young team has were definitely factors in the game. "There is no substitute for experience," Coach Percacciolo added. Although the score looks lopsided, he believes that the game was actually closer than that. However, his team did not get turnovers when they had the chance and they did not execute fundamentals, such as blocking. "We beat ourselves," said Coach Percacciolo. He wishes that the team could be having a better season so that the graduating seniors, who played their last home game Saturday, could be going out on a better note. Coach Percacciolo has known them for years, having coached them on the Pop Warner level before taking over as the head coach at Haldane. "They give their all every game," he said of his seniors. "You want success for them." Despite the loss, the Blue Devils got back to work this week preparing for their game against Hastings on Saturday. "We are going to continue to prepare and work hard," Coach Percacciolo said. "You have to have a short memory." Famighetti led the team in passing against Croton-Harmon, completing three of seven pass attempts for 42 yards and one touchdown. He also led the Blue Devils' running attack, gaining 52 yards on 11 carries. Derek O'Dell ran the ball eight times for 25 yards and Dain Bryant had six yards on three carries. Ryder Hine carried the ball once and lost three yards. Fusco led the team in receiving with two catches for 28 yards and one touchdown. O'Dell had one catch for 14 yards. On the defensive side of the ball, O'Dell led the team in tackles with 14. Elias Lopez contributed nine tackles and Hine and Famighetti had seven. John McGuire had six tackles and James Moss had five. Fusco punted the ball four times and averaged 34 yards on each. Famighetti had three kickoff returns for 65 yards and O'Dell had one for 23 yards. GAME NOTES: Haldane travels to Hastings on Saturday. Kickoff will be at 3pm. The Yellow Jackets promise to be a tough opponent for the Blue Devils, according to Coach Percacciolo. "They are going to run a spread offense and they are good," he said. However, he does believe that his team can defeat them. Haldane came out of the Croton-Harmon game with no injuries to report. At press time, the Blue Devils have 17 players available. The team had more players at the start of the season, but some have suffered injuries. Coach Percacciolo credits hard work in the weight room during the off season with being the reason why many of his players have managed to remain healthy. "I owe that to the weight room," he said, adding that one of the goals during the last offseason was to have players bench pressing 250 pounds. That number will go up to 300 pounds this off season because many of the players have been able to meet the 250 pound goal. The Haldane Lady Blue Devil soccer team had two very tough games last week resulting in a 2-0 loss to North Salem and a 2-2 tie against Kennedy Catholic. Coming off an easy victory against Poughkeepsie 6-1 early last week the team faced a tough North Salem team and came up short 2-0. The ladies had their chances but just could not seem to find the back of the net. North Salem has historically been the team to beat in the league and they proved it this Tu e s d a y a f t e r n o o n . T h e y beat the Blue Devils multiple times last year, including a miserable 10-0 defeat. The Lady Blue Devils wanted to show that this year is different and they did by being in the game from beginning to end. They played tough up front and quick on defense, however, it was not enough to give them a chance to win. There is no doubt that the girls from North Salem left St. Basil field knowing this might not be the last they'll see of the Haldane girls. After the tough loss to North Salem the girls traveled to Kennedy Catholic which included two overtime periods resulting in a 2-2 tie. The game was hectic from beginning to end in which Senior Megan Rohan scored both goals. The crowd from Kennedy was vocal but the girls did an excellent job of concentrating on the game and not getting distracted. The team went through a tough week that saw no wins and know they have a very short time to figure out how to win these close games. Coach Van Alystne has his work cut out for him this week as the ladies have two important league games against Pawling and Dover. As the girls finish the season and head into the playoffs they will have close games in which they can't accept moral victories. When the playoffs come around the only thing that will matter is the scoreboard. As of Monday the girls are 5-5-1 overall and 2-1-1 in league play. this team got back on track and they ended the week with a few good practices. “We were all nervous before the game and we didn’t have a great week of practices. We were without a couple starters, plus you’re always going to be nevous before big games” said wide receiver Marcus Givan. The Tigers were missing wide receiver Ryan Fitzgerald and defensive tackle Will Mauro. Without these two starters it would be a tougher challenge but the team was hoping to rally around one another and win a huge game. Before each game the Tigers walk down the hill as one squad but Friday night was a significant trek to the field. “I told them all right before we walked down the hill for the game, ‘I never thought I’d say this but this might be our last time playing on this field together and we’ve got to go out with a bang’ ” said quarterback Mike Nallan. For Mike Nallan it was the weirdest feeling he had ever gotten but he felt that was the case and they needed to win this game. The entire game was built around the Putnam Valley seniors taking control of the rest of the season and they stepped-up big in this game. Not only did the seniors stepup but junior Jon Warden had probably the biggest game of his high school career. “Jonny, he put on a show. All he was missing was a receiving touchdown. He had a punt return for a touchdown, an interception for a touchdown and a run for a touchdown. It was just Jonny’s night, he hit on all cylinders” said Marcus Givan. Warden played huge in this game scoring in almost every category, setting up the Tigers for a victory, boosting their record to 3-2 in a clutch, 30-18 statement win. Looking ahead the Tigers have their final game next week at Croton, which could also be a statement game for if they put up a good fight, or in fact pull out a win it will give them an immense amount of confidence and hopefully they can ride that wave of confidence right through the sectionals and make this season longer than anyone else had planned.
FROM THE FIELD
by Alex Basso
It was an exciting week at Putnam Valley High School considering the fact that it was Spirit Week, eventually leading up to Color Wars (a huge event in the school in which each grade dresses in their color and competes in events for the trophy), and the PV football homecoming game. After the two straight losses to Hastings and Albertus Magnus, Putnam Valley had many questions that needed answering or this season would be ending abruptly and on a bad note. Looking ahead the Tigers had Irvington on Friday night and then Croton on Saturday, October 17, so this game was looking more and more like a must win game. Irvington was a heavy favorite, being in Class B and having a bigger team than the Tigers, they would definitely be giving Putnam Valley a challenge, in a game that the seniors would especially be looking to win, for it could be their final home game. Throughout the week the team had a rough couple of practices and seemed to be losing focus and Tuesday was one day that showed that the team was falling off track. Tuesday’s practice was a sign of bad things to come and would force the team to come together and prepare for homecoming. The team was released from practice early because of poor performances and a lack of focus and the coaching staff was hoping this would send a message to the leaders of the team. After that the captains took control and made sure
Team Effort Makes Cross Country Go
by David Watkins When Coach Tom Locascio took over the reins of the cross-country team a few years ago there was not many runners on the team. He had been coaching the lacrosse team for years and decided to get the cross country team headed in the right direction. The support of Athletic Director Susan Reid and past Haldane graduate Briana Harold has turned the Blue Devils into a successful program in a very short time. Coach Locascio has been at Haldane for the last 15 years and took on this challenge head on despite having limited resources. Although Haldane and the village of Cold Spring do not have a track, the boys and girls make the best of it and run wherever and whenever they can. It also helps that the coach runs with the kids during practice setting the example. "If I can do it then it inspires them to do it as well", Coach Locascio said. Much of the success goes to Coach Locascio, who remains modest and said "Briana Harold was the one who r e a l l y g o t t h i s t e a m m o ving." "She made the effort to go out and advertise the program and encourage the students to give cross country a shot." The Varsity program last year grew from 7 to 27 kids almost overnight. The team became so popular that even the 7th and 8th graders were interested, which required additional help from Nina Ortiz who coaches the middle schoolers. Coach Locascio now has the opportunity to groom the runners from middle school up until graduation, which will pay dividends in the future. The Blue Devils started seing success in 2007 when graduate Forrest Kingsley won the boys class D, Section 1 championship, followed up by Briana Harold's 2008 win at the girls sectional championship in 2008. Also in 2008, Haldane won both the boys and girls Sectional Championship. History shows that it’s the first time that has ever happened in Blue Devil cross county history. This year Coach Locascio expects even more success. The boys are lead by Senior James Dain and Juniors Paul Mackey and Ed Bohl. Coach described James as a tough kid who sets a quiet example for everyone to follow. K'yla Moran, a sophmore, leads the girls along with hard working senior Hannah Parks. The team has had success this year and fared well against other class D schools. Often times the team runs at mixed meets and competes against much bigger schools. Coach Locascio said that they usually finish in the middle of the pack but the competition prepares them for their sectional championships which will be held on November 6. The team hopes to repeat as the boys and girls sectional champions, which is fast approaching. The next meet will be hosted by Clarkstown South in Rockland County on Friday.

Perfect Conditions on Hand for 4th Hudson Highlands Greenway Triathlon Mod Squad is Victorious
Garrison’s ‘Team 9’ is Overall Relay Winner, Setting Course Record; Cadets come on strong
The Fourth Annual Hudson Highlands Greenway Triathlon was held in Philipstown Sunday, October 11, 2009. The weather was clear and sunny, and the temperature crisp, a perfect fall day for the event. The course consisted of kayaking, 6 miles, to Bannerman's Island and back; biking, 24 miles, down Route 9D to the Bear Mountain Bridge and back u p t o B r e a k n e c k Tu n n e l ; and running, a grueling 8 miles through Scenic Hudson's Foundry Preserve and up Bull Hill, then down past Little Stony Point and back to Dockside. The Hudson River was calm and flat as Race Director Paul Amico started the kayak race at 9am. R o d n e y Vi l l e l l a , 4 0 , o f Newburgh was the individual winner, with a time of 3hr 22 min (57:02 kayak/ 1:10:18 bike / 1:15:21 run, Champion Chip Timing by Super Race Systems). Thirty-four individual triathletes and 25 relay team members completed a 38-mile course. The event, co-sponsored by the Philipa time of 4 hr 6min 14 sec, beating the women’s course record set last year by Krista Osborn. In second place was Amy Bartoletti, 39, of New York City with a time of 4 hr 33 min 40 sec. The overall relay team w i n n e r s w e r e “ Te a m 9 – G a r r i s o n . ” Te a m m e m b e r s P a u l M a c k e y, 4 6 , M o rg a n Stebbins, 49, and Ray Fusco, 42 completed the course in 3hr 18 min 59 sec. Second place relay were two-man team Peter Sheehy and Kirk Noreen, also known as the "The Complete Strangers," at 3hr 30min 33sec. Following closely in third place relay were "District 40," Bernard Yee, Roger Mayer a n d G r e g Wi l m o r e , a t 3 h r 30min 34sec. All three teams beat the course record of 3hr 43min 49min set last year by West Point Team #1. Competitors ranged in age between 18 and 58. About a third of the contestants were residents of Philipstown, with three coming from the United States Military Academy at West Point, and the rest from around the tri-state area. The Town of Philipstown and the Philipstown Greenway Committee sponsored the participation of the three cadets. Results for the full field may be found at www.HudsonHighlandsTriathlon.org. The Fourth Annual Hudson Highlands Greenway Triathl o n w a s o rg a n i z e d b y t h e Philipstown Greenway Committee in partnership with the New York/New Jersey Trail Conference with assistance from the Philipstown Recreation Department. Philipstown Greenway Committee Chair, Michael McKee, noted that the triathlon course once again made use of Greenway and potential Greenway trails and roads in Philipstown. "The Philipstown Greenway Committee promotes the completion of each of the three types of Greenway Trails across the extent of Philipstown, enabling Putnam County to become the first county to create an uninterrupted cross-county Greenway Trail link within the thirteen-county Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail system." Trail Conference and Committee members worked to register participants, provide water at key positions on the route, monitor traffic crossings, and assist in transition areas. A crew of young volunteers from Building Bridges/Building Boats of Cold Spring rowed their longboat to a position just south of Bannerman's Castle to serve as the turnaround point for the triathlon's kayak race. The volunteers were supervised by organization director David Hardy. Deputy Sheriff Mike Szabo and the Marine Unit of the Putnam County Sheriff's office provided safety support on the Hudson during the kayak race, supported by volunteers from the Hudson River Water Trail Association in kayaks positioned along the route. Putnam C o u n t y S h e r i ff ' s D e p u t i e s also provided safety coverage at the Breakneck Tunnel turnaround, and New York State Troopers managed traffic at the Bear Mountain Bridge. Special permissions were granted by the Town of Philipstown, the Villages of Cold Spring and Nelsonville, Scenic Hudson, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, Metro North Railroad, and Chalet on the Hudson to cross properties in various sections of the race.
