There are even a few “shop cats” lounging on chairs catching naps while extreme bike videos play on the room’s flat screen television.

Point guard

Townscape volunteer Ralph Fedele repaired the pointing of the stone wall at Veteran’s Park in Millerton recently, which was damaged after the harsh winter storms and below-freezing temperatures. Fedele said he was happy to do the work. “It’s been a tough winter and I wanted to do this before more stones came down,” he said. “This is our park and it’s important to keep it looking good.”

Andrew Schultz, 17, is on his way to earning the rank of Eagle Scout in the local Troop 29, the highest rank in scouting. But the road to becoming an Eagle Scout is not an easy one.

mnews@taconic.net

NORTH EAST — The Planning Board’s meeting on Wednesday, March 23, was a brief one. The board met for less than an hour. During that time it dealt with attorney Keith Nolan, who was representing GRJH, Inc., owner of the Sunoco gas station and convenience store on Route 44 in Millerton.

About a dozen of the area’s craftiest gathered around a basket of brightly-colored yarn, some novices and some “old hands,” all young at heart.
