MILLERTON — With attendance dwindling as it is in so many churches, members of the Millerton Presbyterian Church have decided to open their minds and their doors to an alternative option by dropping Sunday worship and welcoming all in the community to Saturday 4 p.m. services and social hours.

Noting that village activity always seems to pick up with more residents and visitors on the streets that day as they head for dinner or a movie, Pastor Zora Ficarra-Cheatham hopes the afternoon schedule might be more welcoming to all who are invited — church members or not.

MILLERTON — For most residents of the Tri-state region, John Harney Sr. is a jovial presence, greeting old and new friends at LaBonne’s Market near his home in Salisbury, offering tea samples and making jokes at the Harney and Sons tea shop and restaurant in Millerton, always smiling, friendly, funny.
Many people still think of him as the innkeeper and bartender at Salisbury’s White Hart Inn, which he and his wife, Elyse (of Elyse Harney Real Estate), owned with a group of investors for more than two decades.

The stars and stripes

MILLERTON — On Sunday, Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, the Slater family transformed their front lawn into a giant American flag. The Slaters originally painted their lawn as an American flag on Sept. 11, 2001, when they were unable to find an American flag in the stores. Tim Slater said that honoring the events of Sept. 11 is important because of the American unity it created. “Communities drew closer together after it happened,” he said.

Michaud hurls accusations against town supervisor

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — Sometimes the most compelling part of a Town Board meeting is the public comments, when members of the community have a chance to stand up and speak about what’s on their minds. Such was the case at the North East Town Board’s meeting on Thursday, Sept. 8.
Resident Pamela Michaud stood and addressed the board with comments, some of which perhaps would have been more appropriately addressed to the chairman of the North East Democratic Party. Nonetheless, the board allowed her to proceed with her full statement.
She began dramatically.

Citizens welcome to check out town truck

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — In a somewhat unusual move, the Town Board decided to invite the public to an open house on Saturday, Sept 24, to learn more about a truck it intends to purchase for the Highway Department.
The idea was proposed by town Supervisor Dave Sherman, who said he wanted to give taxpayers the opportunity to see where their dollars wind up and to understand why the purchase of a municipal vehicle can be so costly.

Planning Board gives OK to lot line adjustment

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — Sometimes applications that come before the Planning Board are nice and simple. On Wednesday, Aug. 24, that was exactly the case with resident Ralph Fedele’s proposed lot line adjustment.
Fedele wanted to tweak the boundaries of his driveway, off Route 199, to allow for another vehicle to fit, as well as a small garden. Currently the driveway allows for two cars. The property borders that of resident Robert Trotta, who was willing to do an “equal exchange,” according to Fedele.

Reval defended by assessor

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — Town Assessor Katherine Johnson had no easy task before her on Thursday, Sept. 8, while making a presentation at the North East Town Board meeting on the recent townwide reassessment.
A number of taxpayers have expressed anger since the reval as their property values have risen sharply, which has been compounded by the fact that distribution of school taxes from the North East (Webutuck) Central School District has changed following the reassessment.
