Pine Plains

PINE PLAINS — In the wake of a devastating structure fire that destroyed two dairy barns and killed 46 cows at Ancramdale’s Millerhurst Farm in October, the Miller family was surrounded by love and support at a benefit held at The Stissing House on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Tickets were sold out. There was a silent auction, with many donations from area businesses, including a tour and tasting at Millbrook Winery, a two-night stay at The Inn at Pine Plains, two botanical watercolors by artist Mita Consini Bland, dinner for four at Mashomack Preserve and more.

editor@millertonnews.com

PINE PLAINS — The Pine Plains Police Department needs a new set of wheels, Officer in Charge Mike Lawson told the Town Board at its meeting on Thursday, April 19. He repeated his plea at the meeting on May 17.
He wants to replace a 1999 Crown Victoria.
“It’s at the end of its life,” Lawson said.
The Crown Vic has 95,000 miles on its odometer, but according to Lawson, that number should be doubled because of the number of hours the car has sat idling.
“It’s constantly running,” he said. “And the miles on it are hard miles.”
