judithb@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd president of the United States, left her mark on the world, and on the Hudson Valley.

But unlike most first ladies, both before and after, his wife had many important projects of her own. She was a proponent of women’s rights, racial equality, education, civil liberties and basic human rights.

Green Briar Adult Home still raising questions and concerns

judithb@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — Green Briar Adult Home continues to be a hot topic among residents of Millbrook and town of Washington (TOW). It was the main focus of a Thursday, March 14, Town Board meeting.

judithb@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — “Legally Blonde” is a fun little play, a bit of froth for a bright spot in a dismal winter’s end. The production put on by the Millbrook High School Drama Club rose above the trite story due to the talent of the performers and the able direction of Chelsea Edson.
