The Harlem Valley is rich in history

The Millerton News Editorial

The Harlem Valley is unique for myriad reasons. One very special reason is because of the people who live here; another is because of the people who have lived here in the past. The tie that binds those two elements together — our rich history — is part of what makes this area so very special.

Become involved in the budget process

The Millerton News Editorial

School districts throughout the Harlem Valley are now fully engulfed in the complicated process of drafting their annual budgets — essential business that will dictate how our schools will fund scholastic, athletic and extracurricular programs, pay for building and equipment maintenance, special services and other goods, as well as compensate teachers, administrators and support staff.

We need to be alert to fire safety this spring

The Millerton News Editorial

It may seem like a no-brainer, but let’s not take any chances when it comes to fire safety.
Last week, on Monday, March 26, there were 14 fires in Dutchess County alone by day’s end. That is a frightening number and we were amazingly lucky that there were no fatalities to report along with those statistics.

Wrapping your mind around buying local

The Millerton News Editorial

Sunday, March 25, was the “20th Annual ‘Buy Local’ Festival featuring Trades Arts & Crafts.” A mouthful of a title, but a really wonderful event that has through the years helped unite the Tri-state business community and the buying public in a thoroughly unique and successful way.

Millbrook’s event is all about community

The Millerton News Editorial

There has been a lively discussion recently regarding how the town of Washington and the village of Millbrook should handle some of their more festive events. Primarily, residents are concerned about Millbrook’s Community Day, and if it should be scheduled to coincide with Orvis Sandanona’s Family Game Day; the latter is a huge draw, bringing in crowds from around the globe.

The candidates for the spring elections

The Millerton News Editorial

Village elections coincide with the first day of spring this year. It is somehow fitting that villagers will have the chance to vote for a pair of new (or returning) board members just as the seasons change. What better time could there be to cast a ballot ripe with opportunity?
The central election in the Harlem Valley this year is for two trustee positions on the Village Board in Millerton, which governs how that municipality is run, what laws are enacted and the day-to-day decisions that affect residents and business owners alike.

Shared facilities? Worth looking into

The Millerton News Editorial

Once again the subject of the Millerton Elementary School (MES) building has arisen, and the question of its future has come before both the town of North East and the village of Millerton. It’s no surprise, really; the charming, two-story school building sits at the entrance to the village, just a hair south of the main intersection of Main Street and Route 22.

Checking out the supermarket proposals

The Millerton News Editorial

It seems like the supermarket debate in the town of North East has gotten a little out of hand. The town’s Planning Board has been working diligently for more than a year now, quietly going about its business while reviewing an application from Southern Realty Development LLC (SRD) and all that it requires.

Intramural sports may be the best way to go

The Millerton News Editorial

It’s not whether one wins, but how the game is played. That, basically, is the gist of good sportsmanship. And so it should remain, regardless of what level or type of sport — from T-ball to varsity baseball, from roller-skating to Olympic speed-skating. Genuine effort, team camaraderie, execution and grace are, and should remain, paramount.
