ALBANY — A Hannacroix man pleaded guilty Wednesday in Albany County Court to charges stemming from a September motorcycle accident that left his passenger dead, according to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office. Alex Hamilton, 23, pleaded guilty to second-degree vehicular manslaughter, a class D felony; before Judge William A. Carter, according to a statement from the Albany County

District Attorney’s Office. Hamilton was accused of drunken driving Sept. 2 on his motorcycle on Route 403 in Westerlo with his passenger, Leanne Rose Prudhomme, 23, of Berne, when he veered off the road and struck a telephone pole. Hamilton and Prudhomme were both ejected from the motorcycle, which was sheared in half. Prudhomme was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of death was exposure to blunt-force trauma, Albany

County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy William Rice said in September. Hamilton suffered internal inju- Alex Hamilton ries from the accident and was charged with driving while intoxicated, an unclassified misdemeanor. Police also charged Hamilton with having no insurance, operating a motorcycle without a license,

having unregistered motorcycle switch plates and driving an uninspected vehicle, all violations. He was also charged with crossing road-hazard markings, a moving violation, Rice said. An investigation following the accident determined Hamilton drank several alcoholic beverages throughout the day prior to the crash, according to the District Attorney’s Office. A blood analysis test was taken two hours after the crash and found Hamilton’s blood alcohol content was .08 percent, the

legal limit. Hamilton was released on bail. He faces between one and three years in state prison, according to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 4. Hamilton will be subject to a minimum six-month license revocation, which is subject to the determinations of the Albany County Department of Motor Vehicles, and having an ignition interlock device installed for three years upon his release.

CATSKILL — The former Quality Inn on Route 23B at Exit 21 in Catskill is scheduled to be demolished this month, following court action and some delays with the contractor. Greene County Industrial Development Agency Executive Director Rene VanSchaack updated the Catskill Town Board on the Quality Inn project and a separate project on Route 23B on Tuesday. The adjacent property is an eight-lot, 64-acre parcel where the IDA demolished four houses in September. A garage on the parcel was left intact. Kolath Hotels & Casinos Inc., the former owner, had been attempting to retrieve the Quality Inn property after it foreclosed in 2012, citing their back taxes were minimal in comparison to the value of the property. Kolath owed approximately $800,000 in back taxes, VanSchaack said in October.

The property was transferred to the IDA in September 2017. The U.S. Northeastern District Court ruled in favor of the IDA on Sept. 28 following an appeal Kolath filed on Aug, 16, 2017, allowing the site plans to move forward. The court found that Kolath failed to produce competent evidence to support its case, Greene County Attorney Ed Kaplan said Wednesday. “They failed to meet the burden and prove they received less than the reasonable equivalent value in exchange for the transfer of the property to the IDA.” Kolath had also not absolved their debt, Kaplan said. Kolath has filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals in the Second Circuit, VanSchaack told the board, but the IDA is sticking to its game plan. The appeal was filed on Nov. 27. “We are absolutely moving forward,” he said.

The IDA had initially planned to have the hotel down before Thanksgiving, VanSchaack said in October. “We are just waiting for the contractor,” VanSchaack told the board. Bronze Contracting of Remsen, New York, the IDA’s choice for the project, has been busy with other jobs. VanSchaack did not want to put the project back out to bid because the IDA received a good price for the work. The demolition will cost approximately $148,000, VanSchaack said. “There’s still disposal costs,” he said. “Altogether, we’re looking at around $400,000.” The county received $250,000 from the Restore New York program in February to help cover the costs, VanSchaack said in October. Another reason VanSchaack does not want to rebid the project is the county must use the Restore New York

“We are just waiting for the contractor. There’s still disposal costs. Altogether, we’re looking at around $400,000. We want something that will be good for tourism and generate sales tax.” —GREENE COUNTY INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RENE VANSCHAACK


Bush honored on Van Buren’s 236th birthday By Daniel Zuckerman Columbia-Greene Media

KINDERHOOK — Eighth President Martin Van Buren, a Kinderhook native, was honored Wednesday on his 236th birthday during an annual ceremony at his gravesite in the Kinderhook Reformed Church Cemetery. The event’s master of ceremonies, Kinderhook Mayor James Dunham, held a moment of silence for the late President George H.W. Bush, as his funeral procession was held Wednesday morning and early afternoon at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. His body will be flown to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church before a service on Thursday, according to plans released by the military. Bush will then be taken by motorcade to the Union Pacific Railroad Westfield Auto Facility in Spring, Texas, and then by train to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum

in College Station, where he will be buried Thursday. Bush will be interred alongside his

wife, who died in April at 92, and his daughter Robin, who was 3 years old when she died in 1953 of leukemia.

Accomplishments of Bush’s tenure include sending American troops into Panama to overthrow the regime of Generla Manuel Noriega and sending 118,000 troops from allied nations to free Kuwait from Iraqi rule in what is known as Operation Desert Storm, according to the White House’s website. Throughout Wednesday’s ceremony in Kinderhook, speakers noted comparisons between Van Buren and Bush. Van Buren, who was born Dec. 5, 1782, served as the eighth president of the United States from 1837 to 1841. A founder of the Democratic Party, he previously served as the ninth state governor, the 10th U.S. secretary of state and the eighth vice president of the United States from 1833 to 1837 under President Andrew Jackson. Van Buren and Bush were two of only four sitting vice presidents that See HONORED A2

grant by the end of March. Hotels have already been contacting the IDA about the property, Van Schaack said. “We will be putting out an RFP for the property,” he said. The request for proposals will allow the IDA to have some control over the marketing that the hotel employs. “We want something that will be good for tourism and generate sales tax,” VanSchaack said. Town Supervisor Doreen

Davis voiced her support for a hotel coming to Catskill. “I’m hopeful for a hotel — that’s everyone’s priority,” she said. “I hope we can attract commercial interest that will enhance our tax base.” The hotel took three weeks to clean out, VanSchaack said, adding about 70 percent of the items were repurposed. The adjacent property, known as the Exit 21 West project, will not be marketed until after the Quality Inn site, Van Schaack said. The site cost the IDA $45,000 for demolition and $9,000 for grading, seeding and mowing, Van Schaack said. The eight lots will be

merged into three. One will have the existing garage and the other two will be open to developers. VanSchaack will come before the town planning board to do the lot line adjustment in January. Businesses have already expressed interest in leasing the garage, VanSchaack said, although the town may continue to use the site as a staging area for construction equipment. The IDA will not request formal proposals for businesses for the West site, VanSchaack said, adding that businesses are often referred to the IDA by realtors or the state.

Coxsackie kicks off the holiday season By Sarah Trafton Columbia-Greene Media

COSACKIE — Despite the gray and drizzly weather, cars lined the streets for Coxsackie’s 23rd annual Christmas by the River. The holiday event took place from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday. Visitors could browse crafts, snacks, take hay or wagon rides, enjoy live music and a petting zoo. “It’s a community event to share the holiday season with the town folk,” said Joanne Adamo-Conway, who sits on the committee for the event. “The rain isn’t stopping people,” she added, noting the flux of people. “It’s early yet.” About eight individuals serve on the committee each year, Conway said, but the event is a town-wide effort. “The Flachs donated the hay ride and the Twelve Tribes [Yellow Deli owners] have the horses and wagons for the wagon ride,” she said, citing two examples. Roughly 45 crafters presented their goods at the event, Conway said. “They come from all over.” Courtney Chambers, of Selkirk, comes to the event every year. “It’s a nice town event and a good opportunity to support craft vendors,” Chambers said. “The homemade goods are very nice and you can tell they [the crafters] take pride in their works.” The National Bank of Coxsackie offered a rotating schedule of entertainment, with a new performance coming on every hour from 12-3 p.m. The Coxsackie Food Pantry has been a regular at the event for the past four years, committee member Tony Wolf said. The pantry sells 50/50 raffles as a fundraiser for those in need. Wolf encourages donors to address their tickets to the food pantry so the full amount goes to the pantry.


Carolers entertain the crowd with holiday tunes during Christmas by the River in Coxsackie on Sunday.

“I think we raised about $500 last year,” Wolf said, adding that half of that went to donors and half went to the pantry. Wolf’s goal is $1,000. “We’ve only reached it once,” he added. Alex Johnk, of Greenville, attended the event for his fourth year with his rabbit Marta, goat Cinderella and calves Taco and Burrito. “Marta is a big draw,” he said. “The little kids love to pet her.” Cinderella, on the other hand, was not so sure how she felt about all the people, Johnk said. “It’s been a day in training,” he said.

Let’s support and protect the Jamal Khashoggis still at work, and at risk By Vance Serchuk Special To The Washington Post


Fighting climate change can start at home By adopting a resolution creating a Climate Smart Communities task force, the village of Catskill joined 243 communities in the state to form an alliance with state government to build a resilient, low-emission future. The towns and villages represent more than 7.5 million people, reflecting 39 percent of the state’s population. Climate Smart Communities in Greene County are the towns of Cairo, Hunter and Jewett, and the village of Catskill, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. Columbia County is represented by the towns of Ancram, Austerlitz, Chatham, Copake, Ghent, Hillsdale and Kinderhook, and the villages of Kinderhook and Philmont. Catskill has been working on integrating the program into the village

since 2017. Climate Smart Communities gives municipalities a list of options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gases can trap heat in the lower levels of the atmosphere and increase the Earth’s temperature. Climate Smart Communities focuses on carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Rising temperature is a major factor in climate change. The first step for Catskill, said Liz LoGiudice, founder of Resilient Communications and Consulting, is taking an inventory of village-owned buildings and vehicles. This, for example, is a way for the village to reduce emissions, exercising options of acquiring more energy-efficient vehicles or upgrading old heating systems. A less global and more

immediate problem for Catskill is flooding. Proposed solutions include proper zoning and management of private and public land to prevent flood damage. Another local project is planting trees on village streets to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions and for beautification. By becoming a Climate Smart community, the village is eligible for state and federal aid, but the funding is not earmarked for any specific projects at this time. No single town or village can hope to reverse or even halt climate change, but that should not stop Catskill and the other 12 Twin County communities in the Climate Smart program from marshaling their forces and work to save our little corner of the world.


End-runs around democracy (c) 2018, The Washington Post

Wisconsin’s Republicancontrolled legislature sprinted Tuesday to pass a hastily drafted package of bills that would strip power from the governor and state attorney general. Michigan Republicans are trying a similar maneuver. The reason: Democrats won elections last month, and Republican lawmakers will have to share power with them come January. But sharing does not seem to be on their minds. Refusing to accept their fair-and-square electoral losses, these GOP legislators instead want to keep their hold on power by changing the rules. Does anyone really want this to be the standard practice after a party loses a governor’s mansion? With the final package in flux, Wisconsin Republicans were considering stopping the new Democratic governor and attorney general from pulling the state out of an anti-Obamacare lawsuit, though the two won the election with a promise to do so. GOP lawmakers

might empower themselves to appoint lawyers to defend state laws, usurping the role of the attorney general. And the governor’s powers over the state’s voter-ID law, economic development board and benefits programs could be limited. The legislature could also cut early voting, seen as helping Democrats, while the current Republican governor is still in power. Michigan Republicans are considering similar end-runs around democracy. And they are looking to use their lame-duck session with a duplicitous end-run around voters on a minimum-wage law. They passed the law earlier in September, when it was poised to be on the November ballot, preventing voters from considering the policy. Now they are moving to weaken it, which they can do with a simple majority in the legislature because voters did not impose it. Scott Fitzgerald, R, Wisconsin’s Senate majority leader, admitted Monday that Republicans would not be trying to limit the

governor’s powers if outgoing GOP Gov. Scott Walker had won a third term, explaining that Republicans do not trust the incoming Democrat. It does not matter if they trust the next governor. Wisconsin voters chose to do so. The GOP’s underhanded dealing in Wisconsin and Michigan is just the latest in a trend of Republicans upending principles of good government and democratic accountability for political gain. The party’s massive resistance to President Barack Obama culminated in a debt-ceiling fiasco and an improperly denied Supreme Court seat. Republicans in state after state have imposed new election rules designed to deter Democrats from voting. North Carolina Republicans stripped powers from the governor after they lost the 2016 gubernatorial election, a dirty play that has poisoned the state’s politics. There’s a common thread: Unable to change voters’ minds, they choose instead to change the rules.

Senate leaders who emerged from a closed-door briefing by CIA Director Gina Haspel on Tuesday were unequivocal: Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was directly involved in the murder of Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi on Oct. 2 at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. The debate between Congress and the Trump administration will now intensify over various potential forms of retaliation against Riyadh, such as targeted sanctions and limiting military assistance. But one straightforward response to this appalling crime should be undertaken immediately: increasing U.S. support for the world’s remaining Jamal Khashoggis — namely, the courageous but increasingly embattled Arab journalists, academics, rights activists and public intellectuals who risk their lives in pursuit of a better Middle East. There are hundreds such individuals in the Middle East today who seek to expose corruption and advocate fundamental liberties such as exercising freedom of expression. They persist despite intensified threats directed against not only them but also their loved ones. Some have been driven into exile, as Khashoggi was, but even abroad, many continue to be targeted. The United States can do a great deal more to help and protect these people. Most fundamentally, American officials at the highest level should make clear to their counterparts in Arab governments that the fate of journalists, dissidents and government critics is not a matter of indifference to Washington or to the American public. Independent of U.S. security or economic interests, Arab leaders must understand that abuse of their citizens will have a direct impact on relations with the United States. Top U.S. leaders — including the president, vice president and secretary of

state — can reinforce this message by personally engaging representatives of Arab civil society, welcoming them and their family members to the White House and the State Department, and meeting with them when traveling in the Middle East. This is also something that members of Congress and their staffs should be doing, independent of the administration. Senators and representatives seized by the Khashoggi murder would do well to open their offices to Arab dissidents and activists, and to champion the cases of those being unjustly detained or harassed. For those uncertain where to start, there is no shortage of nonpartisan think tanks and other advocacy organizations — including the Project on Middle East Democracy, Freedom House and Human Rights Watch — that can connect congressional offices with respected individuals doing heroic work in dangerous circumstances. Congress can also increase funding for organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy that help embattled civil society across the Middle East, and for U.S.-sponsored Arabic-language media such as Alhurra that give these organizations a platform. And Washington must do more to address the growing problem of advanced cybertools and other spyware technologies that are being sold to Middle Eastern governments, enabling more sophisticated surveillance and repression. Greater U.S. support for Arab journalists, activists and intellectuals is especially critical at this moment. The grotesque circumstances of Khashoggi’s killing have captured global attention, but the murder fits into a broader trend of worsening repression across the Middle East. After the neardeath experience of the 2011 Arab uprisings, the region’s autocrats have grown even

less tolerant of criticism and craftier in monitoring and controlling their populations. Since late October, for example, the Egyptian government has arrested at least 40 humanrights workers, lawyers and political activists, Human Rights Watch reported. Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, prominent women’s rights campaigners remain imprisoned, in one instance after having been renditioned from abroad. Unfortunately, the United States has largely failed to respond to these developments in a coherent or effective way. To be clear: Defending the human rights of journalists and activists does not mean launching a democratic crusade to overthrow the region’s governments. In fact, a case for these efforts can be made on hardheaded self-interest alone. When senior U.S. officials convey that they are attentive to the rights of dissidents, despotic governments are more likely to proceed with greater caution against them. Conversely, when Washington signals its ambivalence, dictators are more likely to conclude that they can indulge their darkest impulses with impunity. The latter path, as Khashoggi’s tragic fate illustrates, ends up disastrous for all parties - resulting in a horrific act of evil that offends our values, and also a crisis in an important relationship that undermines America’s interests. Khashoggi’s killers likely intended not only to snuff out one of the Arab world’s most prominent public intellectuals but also to terrify others like him into silence. There can be no more fitting response by the United States than to protect and amplify precisely such voices of principled dissent — while giving pause to those tempted to harm them.

Al’s contributions to semipro/minor league football led to his selection to the prestigious American Football Association’s Hall of Fame in 2006. In addition to his immediate family, daughter Kimberly (Thomas) Allen of Watertown, CT and grandchildren Jaiden, Kai and Maila, Al leaves myriad family and friends to cherish his life and memory including: his sister, Janice Dunn; nephews Sean Dunn (Jung Kwak); Harley Dole (Debbie); nieces Julie Smith (Marshall); Heather Hampton (Charlie); Sherry Dole and many great-nephews and nieces.

George H.W. Bush funeral: Historian calls Bush ‘America’s last great soldier-statesman’ By John Wagner and Felicia Sonmez The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - Mourners from across the nation gathered Wednesday morning in Washington to pay their respects and celebrate the life of former president George H.W. Bush at a state funeral at the Washington National Cathedral. With President Donald Trump and four living former U.S. presidents in attendance, Bush was remembered as “America’s last great soldier-statesman” by biographer Jon Meacham, one of four people delivering eulogies. Meacham delivered the first of the eulogies, calling Bush “America’s last great soldier-statesman.” “An imperfect man, he left us a more perfect union,” Meacham said of the 41st president. His remarks included some gentle ribbing of Bush for what the former president had acknowledged wasn’t his strongest suit: public speaking. “‘Fluency in English,’ President Bush once remarked, ‘is something that I’m often not accused of,’” Meacham said, adding: “His tongue may have run amok at times, but his heart was steadfast.” Meacham also recounted Bush being shot down as a Navy pilot in 1944 and barely escaping death. “And so we ask, as he so often did: Why him? Why was he spared?” Meacham

said. “The workings of Providence are mysterious, but this much is clear: the George Herbert Walker Bush who survived that fiery fall into the waters of the Pacific made our lives, and the lives of nations, freer, better, warmer, nobler.” The second eulogy was given by former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney, whose last four years in office overlapped with Bush’s term as president. “Fifty or 100 years from now, as historians review the accomplishments and the context of all who have served as president, I believe it will be said that in the life of this country, the United States - which is, in my judgment, the greatest democratic republic that God has ever placed on the face of this earth - I believe it will be said that no occupant of the Oval Office was more courageous,

more principled and more honorable than George Herbert Walker Bush,” Mulroney said. He hailed Bush’s foreign and domestic policy achievements, including the NAFTA agreement, which he said had been “modernized and improved by recent administrations,” in what appeared to be veiled swipe at President Trump’s efforts to terminate the deal. Mulroney said that when world leaders dealt with Bush, they “knew that they were dealing with a gentleman, a genuine leader, one that was distinguished, resolute and brave.” Former senator Alan Simpson prompted some laughs from the crowd with a self-deprecating speech in which he celebrated his friendship with Bush, which began more than five decades ago in 1962.

The touching gesture by George H.W. Bush that his Secret Service ‘family’ will never forget By Lindsey Bever (c) 2018, The Washington Post

George H.W. Bush sat near a flower garden in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 2013, holding a 2-year-old child. The pair wore matching blue polo shirts and khaki pants - and sported the same hairstyle. Bush had learned that the boy, the son of an agent on his Secret Service detail, had been diagnosed with leukemia. The toddler had lost his hair and, to show their support, members of the detail were planning to shave their heads. So the former president did, too. His wife, Barbara, snapped a picture, which soon went viral. “When little Patrick got leukemia, a lot of the agents shaved their heads,” Bush explained to his granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager, a contributing correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show. “I said, ‘Well why not me?’ It was the right thing to do.” “They’re a wonderful group of people,” Bush said. “They’re like family with us.” The agents thought of the president the same way.

stood by him through his darkest times, Simpson said. “My life in Washington was rather tumultuous,” he said. “I went from the ‘A’ social list to the ‘Z,’ and never came back to the ‘A.’ In one dark period I was feeling awful low, and all my wounds were self-inflicted.” When he questioned Bush about his decision to stay by him, Simpson said Bush responded, “This is about friendship and loyalty.” Bush loved a good joke, Simpson added, but he “never, ever could remember a punchline - and I mean never.” In an interview with The Post’s Karen Tumulty on Tuesday, Simpson said of his eulogy: “You cry while you’re preparing it, so you won’t cry while you’re giving it.” The Washington Post’s Elise Viebeck, Sueng Min Kim, Patricia Sullivan and Michael E. Miller contributed to this report.

The Secret Service reshared the touching photo Tuesday on Twitter, referring to the 41st president by his code name, “Timberwolf.” The agency said it “wanted to share a memory” the day before his funeral at Washington National Cathedral. The boy’s battle with leukemia hit close to home for the former president: He and his wife lost their 3-year-old daughter, Robin, to the disease in 1953. Following the gesture in 2013, the family of Patrick, whose last name was not disclosed, said in a statement to “Today” that they were “humbled and honored by the support and generosity that President and Mrs. Bush and our Secret Service family have shown towards our son.” Three years later, Bush posted the photo on his personal Twitter account, along with an updated one showing the boy several years older with a full head of hair. “Incredibly #thankful that my friend Patrick, the courageous young man (with hair!) to my left, is feeling and doing

much better these days,” he wrote at the time. CNN analyst Jonathan Wackrow, a former Secret Service agent, remembered that moment Tuesday in an op-ed for the network, saying that members of the security detail considered Bush family. “Over the 38 years that members of the Secret Service had the privilege of protecting Bush and his family, he, in turn, became part of the Secret Service family. Each day, he led by example, teaching us how to live with dignity and respect,” Wackrow wrote. “With his passing, a part of the soul of the Secret Service is gone as well. However, it will never be forgotten. Instead, his legacy will live on in the hearts of the countless people he touched. “It was an honor and privilege to protect you, Timberwolf.” Lindsey Bever is a general assignment reporter for The Washington Post, covering national news with an emphasis on health.

Hunting season built lifetime friendships December: what do you feel when you flip the calendar page to December? Are you feeling the stress of one major holiday down, but the big one on its way? We love to bring so much color and bling into our houses to dispel the gloom of early winter nights, but the actual decorating takes so much time. Do you grit your teeth and get it all done in one day, or do you spread it out? Real or artificial tree? Outdoor decorations? I used to adorn each and every surface with decorations old and new. Now that I’m all alone, it doesn’t seem worth it to decorate just for me. I am thankful for friends that share theirs with me. Roberta Banks is one busy, talented lady. Anyone who knows her, knows how she loves animals, and has a mini farm in Jewett, complete with mini horses, chickens and goats. She started making goat’s milk soap and is selling it online to make good use of the goat milk. Her house is done in a rustic motif, so she made a beautiful fleece patchwork quilt. When that was done, she needed a table so made one herself from a stump and glass. What more can we expect? A shoutout to Ruth Cady Muller in Shokan. As a librarian, she has access to many local papers and has been reading this column for awhile. She loves how it gives her a chance to get news from and about people from Windham-Ashland-Jewett. Don’t disappoint her, send in your news. Rose Hudecek had a quiet Thanksgiving this year with only 14 attending. In contrast, the “Clifford Thompson” family from Jewett had 47. Following tradition, Josh and Stefanie Holdridge had the family over at the farmhouse. It makes for a very hectic, but fun and enjoyable, dinner. The nest at Jessica Franz is quiet as all relatives have

returned home — to Australia, Switzerland and local family who were here for Thanksgiving. Kyle (Hunter) Creech, got his first deer this year. Speaking of Jewett activities, the Jewett Presbyterian Food Pantry is in dire need of volunteers. The pantry is open every Sunday and they need people to distribute the food. Also, someone, very strong with a truck, is needed to pick up the food at the Regional Food Bank in Catskill once a month. The pantry serves many people and it would be a shame to discontinue it because of a lack of willing helpers. Call Jessica at 518-4242919. It would be a good project for high school seniors who need volunteer hours. The pantry has just posted its December schedule. Dec. 9 and 16 are regular pick ups. No holiday items. The Christmas dinner pick up, ham, pies and holiday items will be on Dec. 23. This will be Christmas baskets only. No general food. They will be closed on Dec. 30. Do you need furniture or a stove? Call me, I have access to many items again. Another Spam alert!! Local people are getting calls from Publisher’s Clearing House — you won, but we need money for expenses. Not true. Do not fall for it. Never give your credit card information over the phone, never cash a check that you get in the mail UNLESS you are expecting it. It’s hard to do, but safer in the long run. Remember, donate personally, and locally. Do NOT let anyone have access to your accounts. It’s unfortunate that these low lifes prey on older people. Show them that we are smarter than they are.

AS I REMEMBER IT When driving around the area during Thanksgiving week, it was great to see at least two cars in every driveway. So what you say: Everyone has company. No, these are second homes, vacation homes, many unused much of the year. It told me that many people were taking advantage of our early winter and ski season. It was also deer hunting season which takes me back... To the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. Before ski slopes, the time of the family farm, for instance. Starting at South Street and Route 23 was the Sportsman Lodge (before all you did was sit home and watch TV), when you could go in your hunting clothes for lunch and dinner and could dance on Saturday nights. The Henry Wowk farm, then Dot and Walt Alle. Next, the Holdridge farm, Pauline and Orville Case. Alice and Claude Cook on North

would pick up the stragglers, the men would come in, divest hunting gear, wash up and eat. You would see everyone sitting around in long johns, and wooly socks. Stories would be told of the one that got away, and who saw what. The lucky one who got a deer would help hoist it up in the tree, the bag holding the liver and heart would be brought in to be cleaned and stored. This was a very long, grueling two weeks for the family, but at the end of it, my mother would have enough money to buy gifts for all of her children and grandchildren. It was hard work, but those who came once generally came every year and stayed friends for a long, long time.

Settlement, the Partridges, Kelly Acres and Babe Goos on county Route 10 and so many more. Basically, if you had extra rooms in your house, you took in hunters. A quick and easy way to make money for the hard times. Beginning around Nov. 15, the hunters came. Farm homes open to 30 or more. Sleeping everywhere they could. Cots were set up in rooms with just enough room to go from door to bed. Sometimes you knew your roommates, often times you just bunked with whoever. It didn’t matter because the men were all up at 4 a.m. for 4:30 a.m. breakfast. If you got there at 5 a.m., you got cold coffee. It was a full breakfast — not just toast and coffee. The meal had to be hearty enough to sustain you for the long trek into the woods. Sandwiches were made and packed up to be taken with the men. Hunting gear was hung by the door for easy dressing. Lunches were put in the knapsack with the bullets, knives, bags for the hearts and liver, and off they would go. My dad had an old Ford tractor and would bring the hunters across the stream to the mountain, then he would start the milking and normal farm chores, feeding the animals, mucking out the barn, gathering eggs. For mother, and her helpers, the day would start with breakfast cleanup, making the beds, making pies, snacks, soups, setting the clean dishes back on the table for supper, peeling many potatoes, getting the roast ready for the oven, and, hopefully, a little rest, or the normal routine of shopping, laundry, stocking the furnace. Around 3:30 p.m., the roast went in the oven, potatoes went on the boil, jars opened for the vegetable, a relish tray put out. Hunting was over at dusk, (just before the sun went down), father

Brantley reaches milestone in Cats’ victory Columbia-Greene Media

CATSKILL — Justice Brantley reached a career milestone and helped Catskill remain unbeaten with a convincing 67-47 victory over Maple Hill in Tuesday’s Patroon Conference boys basketball game. “We circle Maple Hill on the calender every year; they are well coached, well disciplined, hardworking basketball team.” Catskill boys’ basketball coach, Doug Lampman said. “I wasn’t going to call ourselves anything special until we were able to play against Maple Hill.” Maple Hill played tough, but Catskill was able to contain the Wildcats’ offense in the second quarter allowing Justice Brantley, Devon Haye and Logan Scott to build and maintain a lead. Brantley finished with 29 points and eight assists and reached the 1,000-point mark for his career in the second half. After scoring just two points in the opening quarter, he put up 10 in the second, six in the third and 11 in the fourth. “Justice is an amazing addition to this program.

Nationals’ signing of Corbin proves Yanks can be outbid Billy Witz The New York Times News Service

When the first big free-agent domino fell Tuesday, the biggest surprise was not that Patrick Corbin landed a six-year, $140 million contract, it was the team with whom he signed it. Corbin, the top pitcher on the market, did not sign with the two suitors close to his hometown in upstate New York: the Philadelphia Phillies, whose owner was prepared to spend “stupid” money over the winter, and the New York Yankees, who have crafted a book on it. Instead, the Washington Nationals landed Corbin, a 29-year-old left-hander. The Nationals were flush with cash — the expiring contracts of Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy, Gio Gonzalez and Matt Wieters free nearly $62 million from their payroll — and probably fueled by last season’s collapse, they were willing to outbid the competition by adding a sixth year to the offer. Corbin, for his part, also gave a little, allowing the Nationals, as is their habit, to defer some of the money, according to a baseball official familiar with the agreement. The deal sends a signal that is heartening for baseball: At least in the National League East, most everyone is trying to win. The division champion Atlanta Braves landed third baseman Josh Donaldson, the American League Most Valuable Player three years ago, on a

one-year, $23 million flier. The Mets acquired an elite closer in Edwin Diaz and an aging middle-of-the-lineup bat in Robinson Cano.

And while the Phillies may have lost out on Corbin, they should be in the chase for the premier free agents in this class: Manny Machado

and Harper. In Washington, Corbin joins a rotation where he will be third fiddle — behind Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, who are down for $37 million and $38 million next season. Those are the types of salaries that used to regularly dot the Yankees’ ledger. Sometimes it was money well spent (C.C. Sabathia) and sometimes it was not (Jacoby Ellsbury), but the deals had at least commonality: They reinforced the notion that the only bottom line that mattered was winning the World Series. Now it is no longer so. Fiscal responsibility reigns. The Yankees, though they did take on what remained of Giancarlo Stanton’s 13-year, $325 million contract last December, went through financial contortions to stay below the luxury tax threshold for the first time last season. General manager Brian Cashman has said that he has been given a budget by Hal Steinbrenner, but has declined to say if it is above the new luxury tax threshold of $206 million, which is $9 million more than last season. The Yankees have occasionally lost out on free agents over the years — Greg Maddux didn’t care much for New York, and Curt Schilling was intrigued by the possibility of ending the Red Sox playoff drought — but it is See SIGNING B4

When Brantley surpassed the 1,000 point mark in the third quarter, it was a spark for the Catskill team and Catskill fans. Coach Lampman called for a timeout, allowing Brantley’s friends and family time to greet him. The commemorative white basketball was also brought out at that time, with teammates and opponents congratulating Brantley on his success. Maple Hill played a solid game as well, with several standout players. Senior Quinn Pratico was a threat from the beyond the arc, connecting on four 3-pointers. Junior Rian Jewett played a solid defensive game and also draining two three’s. Senior Tyler Hanrahan contributed 10 points. “Tonight we played against well against Maple Hill,” Lampman said “They are buying into the system, now we just have to see how far we can take the system.” Catskill (3-0, 5-0) visits Cairo-Durham and Maple Hill (2-1) hosts Taconic Hills on Friday at 6:30 p.m. MAPLE HILL (47):

trade for him last winter — but one who had several middling seasons after Tommy John surgery before blossoming last season. He was 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA, making the All-Star team and finishing fifth in the NL Cy Young voting. The Yankees liked Corbin plenty, but they did not view him as a top-of-the-rotation pitcher and thus did not want to give him a sixth year. Their final offer, according to a baseball official familiar with the negotiation, was five years and $100 million.

So, instead of reading tea leaves last week — the order of Corbin’s visits was Washington, Philadelphia, New York, and the report that Corbin’s brother put on a Yankees cap while delivering a toast at Corbin’s wedding — it was better to have listened. Cashman was asked Friday, a day after Corbin’s visit, if he was waiting on Corbin as a primary target. “There’s a lot of players of interest to us and a lot of players that can improve us, both in free agency and trade, so I wouldn’t designate anyone as a primary,”

Cashman said. “There’s a lot of attractive players that are available for various price points.” Now the Yankees will pivot. Their pursuit of pitching to augment Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and Sabathia already resulted in a trade with Seattle for James Paxton, and will now shift toward the next-level free agents — Dallas Keuchel, Nathan Eovaldi and J.A. Happ — and what could be a robust trade market with Cleveland’s Corey Kluber headlining it. Only time will tell if the Yankees were wise not to invest

in Corbin. Cashman has been shrewd in rebuilding the Yankees through their farm system, but his reluctance to take on the salary of Justin Verlander two years ago and — to a lesser degree — his unwillingness to part with a prospect like Miguel Andujar to land Gerrit Cole loom as what-ifs. But there was no equivocation about what happened Tuesday. If this season’s Yankees do win the franchise’s 28th World Series title, it will not have been at any cost.

Mom makes travel plans without being invited I gave birth to my daughter three months ago, after 44 grueling hours of labor. My mother, assuming I would want her in the delivery room, booked her flight, flew across the country and stayed at my house without asking DEAR ABBY when I’d like her to come to help me. During her stay, she made comments about how she had flown 2,000 miles to “dog-sit” for me, that she knew she wasn’t wanted, and had she known my daughter wasn’t going to come on time (I was induced), she wouldn’t have “wasted her vacation” to fly in early. The entire visit was miserable. Without consulting my husband and me, she has now booked a flight to come and stay with us for Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I’m dreading the thought of her being here. I’d like my daughter’s first Christmas to be a happy occasion. I asked my mother to change her flights and come in after the holiday, only to be met with the accusation “you’re being selfish” from her and my stepfather. How do I tell them that I don’t want them here for Christmas while minimizing hurt feelings? Pushed Too Far In Pennsylvania


It appears you not only have a pushy mother, but also one who has no filter. When she made the comments she did when she came to “help” after the delivery, did you tell her how offended you were? If you didn’t tell her how you felt, you have a communication problem.

Give your mother one more chance. Welcome her and your stepfather at Christmas and, if she makes a demeaning or unkind comment, CALL her on it! And when you do, tell her that in the future you and your husband prefer to invite your houseguests rather than have them descend upon you. Because my husband and I are reaching advanced years, we know we will soon have to downsize to a senior living facility. In anticipation, we have begun distributing keepsakes we have accumulated over the years. Many were gifts with special meaning. Some are heirlooms that have been passed down from previous generations. When I helped my son with his garage sale recently, I was shocked to discover several of the keepsakes on display. I didn’t know how to react, but I did speak to him about it. Apparently, he doesn’t value them! How should I handle future distribution of keepsakes, as there are more of them, some of which I had intended for him and his family? Apparently, his wife and son also have no interest in them. Sentimental In Wisconsin You now have two choices. You can either give the items as gifts to other family members, after first ensuring that they will be appreciated and treasured, or sell them and use the money to cover any expenses that may come up in the future. P.S. If they have historical value, consider donating them to a museum or your state historical society.

Seniors can have adverse reactions to BP meds I wonder if you could comment on the negative side effects of various blood pressure medications for those over 65 — particularly folks who are 80-plus. Should a person be on more than two medications if one’s blood pressure is generally 150160/70-80? Does the answer change if the person also has TO YOUR chronic atrial fibrillation? GOOD HEALTH I am on three blood pressure medications meds, have chronic atrial fibrillation and have had extremely bad lightheadedness, to the point of altering my quality of life. I am on one medication (clonidine) that was listed as having many side effects, like the ones I mentioned. I checked with my pharmacist and got the same info: It’s not good for seniors. Atenolol also was listed as not being good for seniors. Websites said clonidine could cause older adults to have “memory issues,” such as brain fog, which I have experienced. No fun for sure. I am currently going off of clonidine and did a dumb thing. I stopped it suddenly and had really bad side effects. I know better, but my doctor was out of town and I was dealing with severe side effects. Now those are slowly subsiding. I am currently taking two meds and awaiting advice from my doctor on which meds to stay on or a change in dosages. I would appreciate your thoughts on blood pressure medications and their adverse reactions, especially in seniors.

pressure could control it with a single medication that would not have any side effects. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work that way. Some people do need two, three or even four different medications to control their blood pressure. The guiding principal often becomes not what is ideal, but what is best in a difficult situation. Sometimes that means using medications like clonidine and atenolol, neither of which is the first drug a clinician would Hagar the Horrible use for an older person with high blood pressure. It often takes extensive trials to find the right combination of medications to get the blood pressure in an acceptable range while still having an acceptable level of side effects. It’s not clear that you have achieved either of those goals: 160/80 is not adequate blood pressure control, and lifealtering lightheadedness and “brain fog” are not acceptable. It’s dangerous to stop taking beta blockers like atenolol suddenly, but clonidine is even worse: The blood pressure can rebound higher than Zits it ever was, leading to stroke. I understand your frustration, but please wait on your doctor before discontinuing blood pressure medication. A new regimen is called for, and maybe a complete re-evaluation of the possible causes of high blood pressure. For example, when I see clonidine used, I often consider whether the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea has been missed. Readers may email questions to Dr. Roach at

Horoscope By Stella Wilder Born today, you are down-to-earth and rarely one to let your emotions overtake your solidly rational approach to life. Sometimes called “blunt,” you are plainspoken to a fault. You prefer the truth over all else — even when it may in fact turn on you in some way. You are not always right, but you are always moving toward that which you can trust and rely on, whether at work or in relationships. You will go out of your way to support the underdog in any grievous situation. You see yourself as easily approachable. You may not always enjoy the best health, and you may be unusually subject to fatigue — but you don’t let physical ills stand in your way. You will continue moving forward even when it seems that circumstances have all conspired against you. You firmly believe that as long as you keep trying, you will succeed eventually. Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.

much of your time today waiting for things to line up just so — and there’s only so much you can do to make that happen. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — A shoddy job attracts more than criticism today; it also puts you in a vulnerable position from which it is difficult to extricate yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You’ll be waiting on others on at least two important occasions today, one of which can be anticipated. Brace yourself for the other. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Now is no time for your confidence to abandon you; you need faith in your abilities to see you through an assignment that is daunting indeed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You have much in common with a certain rival, and today you can make that awareness work for you as you seize the advantage — perhaps permanently. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You must be very clear in your desires today; a vague notion of what you want isn’t enough as you navigate at least one slippery slope. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ve been heading down the same path for some time, and today you may realize that you have the freedom to make a change if you so desire. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You cannot guarantee another complete satisfaction today, but you can certainly offer some enjoyment as you both face key challenges.
