Our local Historical Societies present very interesting and worthwhile programs and the people who participate and do service to their communities by preparing them are caring and knowledgeable people. It is a pleasure to participate. This Saturday at 2PM at the Little red SchoolHouse on Locust Ave in Van Cortlandtville will be a program about ghosts in the Hudson Valley.
Historical Society Trustee Ed Pell presents an hour of history each Monday on Cablevision's Channel 74. Often replays of various programs the Society has offered, these vignettes will share information on many people and events of the past. Tune in and enjoy!

Good. Just because someone is in a treatment facility they are not immune from civil standards of citizenship and need to learn accountability for their actions.
Just preventing some one from taking drugs or abusing alcohol is not enough. View Comment
So many people claim to be absolutely certain it was ultra light planes which have internal combustion engines and make noise- Why they and yourself insist on their ownership of the source of the sightings smacks of inflated egos. There is plenty of room for question- but the absolutism of people who claim to be "pranksters" is questionable. I discount your claim. Perhaps several of those flights were indeed seen and thought to be UFOs, but not all. But I for one really appreciate your participating in the discussion View Comment
Driving down the Taconic in 1983 from a weekend in Ghent we came upon several cars pulled over on the roadside around Kingson exit..I too pulled over when I looked up and saw the V shaped formation of lights hovering very low over the highway. It was larger than the expanse of the breakdown lane the 2 south bound lanes the median and the Northbound lanes...Absolutely silent
You could sense more than see a structure behind the bright lights, it was not more than 100 -200 ft overhead. I thought "hello" and imagined greeting the occupants and sent my thoughts skyward...Our little boy was asleep in the back seat, and after about 5 minutes or so I became a bit fearful- of the unknown...We got back in our car and ducking our heads drove under it for home lickety split. I called the state police barracks the next morning, but got no answers.
In July of 1947 The Yonkers Herald Statesman carried many stories about unknown flying discs in Westchester and around the country

Good old Tea party ...self righteous and smug but as amoral as the worst of the hypocrites who complain about "welfare cheats". 300 hundred years imprisonment- Hmmm that sounds about right View Comment
