MILLBROOK — Local gardeners look forward each weekend after Mother’s Day to the Master Gardener Plant Sale at Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County in Millbrook. 

The sale ran for two days, Friday and Saturday. On sale were perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs and trees. This year, a specialty item was a mass of Hosta, donated by a person who lost an 85-foot Spruce tree to a storm. The Hosta garden created for the spot near the tree was dug up and donated to the group, because the shade-loving plants had no shade once their tree was lost to the storm....

judithb@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — Dutchess County Historian William Tatum III announced at the beginning of his presentation on ancient documents that it would include tales of sex, violence and money. Really? This talk was supposed to be about the documents of early days in and around Millbrook, in the area called the Oblong. 
But Tatum did not disappoint. His tales contained all that he promised, and wound a spell of intrigue, chicanery and dubious practices — not unlike the politics of today.
