corya@millertonnews.com

MILLERTON — Millerton Mayor John Scutieri and Trustees Jay Reynolds and Marty Markonic were all re-elected during Millerton’s village elections on Tuesday, March 15, in what looks on paper to be an apparent Republican landslide victory, without a single Democratic vote.
That’s because voters were only given one choice at the polls this year, stemming from “a screw up in filing,” according to the head of the Democratic Committee for the town of North East, which did not file its certificate of party nomination.

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — In what has turned out to be a three-month saga filled with both drama and anticipation, a decision was finally rendered regarding the appointment of the seventh and final member of the North East Planning Board last Thursday, March 10.
With a vote of 4 to 1, the Town Board voted to appoint Millerton resident and businessman Chip Barrett to the Planning Board, thus ending the community-driven movement to have former Chairman Henry Klimowicz return to the board on which he spent the past decade volunteering.

One lot’s backyard is another man’s lake

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — Mike Lyman could do without all the ice and rain that’s been falling recently. For starters, his North Center Street home flooded last week, something he said had never happened no matter how rainy the weather.
The situation made him revise the above sentiment, to what he could really do without is not so much the rain, but rather the recent development of the property adjacent to his, which he blames for the change in topography that actually caused the flooding.

Jim Campbell retires

corya@millertonnews.com

MILLERTON — The Campbell family name is well known in the Millerton business community.
John Campbell Sr. first opened an appliance store in town in 1930. It’s 2011 now, and Campbell & Keeler, as it became, has been running strong for more than 80 years. Only a handful of area businesses (Terni’s, Saperstein’s, Valentine’s Funeral Home and Duxbury & Hermans come to mind) can compete with that kind of longevity.

Weather’s wrath

On McGhee Hill and Silver Mountain roads, some of the highest points in the town of North East, freezing temperatures caused massive amounts of ice to build up on trees following last week’s storm. Many trees eventually collapsed under the weight, taking power lines down with them. The area was one of the last to get power restored. “It looks like a second World War battlefield up here,” described resident Lloyd Levi.

Freeze frame
