I am pleased to report that the brook trout survived last summer’s horrible conditions. Not only that, they are feisty. Note the double-beaded stonefly nymph in the photo, which is bigger than the fish’s...

Ready for future, Miller keeps an eye on present

FALLS VILLAGE — Jonathan Miller was drawn to tennis for the same reason many young players turn away. 

“The hardest part about it is that you’re on an island out there by yourself,” said Jeff Tripp, the longtime boys’ tennis coach at Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS). You’ve really got to solve your own problems and figure things out on your own.”
