MILLERTON — No amount of rain could wash away the Halloween spirit as the Irondale Schoolhouse on Main Street hosted its annual Haunted House and Trick or Treat event on Thursday, Oct. 31.

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — Winchell Mountain Road is undeniably beautiful. Its mountaintop scenic view makes for a lovely country drive — with one exception: The road has increasingly become a speedway for cars and trucks making their way back and forth from Route 22 to Route 199. 
Winchell Mountain Road (Dutchess County Route 60) is a popular shortcut between the two state roads, but it’s not without its risks, especially in the winter time. The steep and winding road makes for fast driving, and neighbors say it’s putting them in harm’s way.

MILLERTON — Every person has a story, but all too often, generations pass by one another without sharing them, and soon they are lost to the ages.

MILLERTON — Behind the black screen recently erected on Route 44 in Millerton, work is being done to turn the old gas station into, well, sort of an older gas station. 
Rob Cooper, owner of Associated Lightning Rod in Millerton, is a collector of gas station memorabilia, mainly signs and oil cans from the 1950s and 1960s. It isn’t completely illogical, then, that he’s now purchased an old gas station. What better place to showcase his collection?

MILLERTON — The right person at the right time in the right place pretty much sums up the happy connection between Lana Morrison, former manager of the Millerton Branch of Salisbury Bank, and the NorthEast-Millerton Library. 
Morrison, who describes herself as a “numbers person,” has recently joined the library’s Board of Trustees, assuming the position of treasurer from the much appreciated Carol Decker who recently stepped down from that function after many years of volunteer service.

“It’s a big project,” acknowledged North East town Supervisor George Kaye, who explained that because there was so much rain last fall, the project had to be delayed until this summer — meaning more money will have to be spent eventually.
