Michael G. Denick, 71, passed away peacefully at his home on December 8, 2018. Mike was born on May 9, 1947 in Jersey City, NJ, son of the late Michael and Doris Denick.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 48 years, Lorraine (Martin); his daughter Liz and son-in-law Colin; and precious grandsons, Colin and Michael.

Mike is also survived by his extended family, mother-in-law June, George and Cathy, Patty and Andy, Mary, Kathy, John and Jim; loving nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, many aunts and cousins, and Colin’s family in California. He is predeceased by his sister-in-law, June Senst.

Mike served in the US Army Reserves from 1970-76. After graduating from Rutgers University, Mike began his career at IBM as an Industrial Engineer and worked his way up to Vice President of Intellectual Properties. He retired in 2005.

Mike coached girl’s softball for the Town of Beekman and was on the executive board of Greystone Programs. He was also a consultant for McGrath Cheese Company.

Mike was a former Mets, Jets, and Rutgers sports fan, always hoping for winning teams. Mike was a 40-year Jets season ticket holder, enjoying tailgating with loyal friends.

Mike loved cruising his boat on Lake George, vacationing in Kauai, taking drives, watching the Smithsonian Channel, golfing with his college buddies and Tom in Myrtle Beach, eating dinners out with friends, going away on vacations with dear friends to Cape May, Vegas, Disney, Maine, Alaska, New Hampshire, The Finger Lakes, and Ireland, and he loved talking about the cheese business with Colin.

Most dear to Mike was the 25 years of Martin family vacations at Lake George. But mostly, Mike enjoyed being with Liz, Colin, Colin, and Mikey…Sunday dinners, birthday parties, and shared family trips over the years. Grampy loved watching Colin and Mikey – playing, fishing, making tents with sheets, building great creations with blocks, tape, and magnets, and digging for worms and bugs.

Mike was so proud of his daughter, Liz, in her teaching career and his son-in-law, Colin, in his cheese business. He loved seeing Liz as a mom, helping the boys to grow in every way.

Dutchess DA Receives Recognition from the New York State Department of Labor https://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46423 Tue, 11 Dec 2018 20:16:07 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46423 Dutchess DA Receives Recognition from the New York State Department of Labor

Dutchess County DA William V. Grady’s Office has been officially recognized by the NYS Department of Labor for recovering a total of 1.1 million dollars in restitution paid by perpetrators of Unemployment Insurance Fraud since 2012.

Grady’s Office was one of 10 out of the 62 district attorney offices in the State to exceed over one million dollars recovered in conjunction with the criminal prosecution of offenders who committed fraud against the State by submitting false unemployment insurance claims.

DA Grady stated, “On behalf of my Office, we are honored to receive this recognition. Unemployment Insurance Fraud undermines the very basis of our business community, and my Office will continue to work closely with the Department of Labor and insure that those individuals who commit such fraud are held accountable and made to return the monies stolen.”

“This recognition is the result of the hard work and dedication of Sr. Assistant DA Andrea Long, who was the lead prosecutor in these cases.”

Deputy Commissioner of Worker Protection James Rogers commended DA Grady, stating, “Dpt. Of Labor’s partners in law enforcement, like DA Grady, are a crucial cog in the mechanism that’s helping us stop fraud and recover lost funds.” “When restitution is returned to the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, it allows the State to continue to provide temporary financial assistance to legitimate claimants who have become unemployed.”

DEC Encourages New Yorkers to Give the Gift of a Lifetime Fishing, Trapping, Or Hunting License https://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46418 Tue, 11 Dec 2018 18:07:06 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46418

DEC Encourages New Yorkers to Give the Gift of a Lifetime Fishing, Trapping, Or Hunting License

Free Collectible 2018-19 Habitat Patron Pin Now Available through Special Holiday Habitat & Access Stamp Sales Promotion

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos today reminded residents that the holidays are a great time to consider giving the gift of conservation.

“In your search for the perfect gift this holiday season, consider a New York State Lifetime License for the special hunters, trappers, and anglers in your life,” Commissioner Basil Seggos said. “Hunting, trapping, and fishing in New York State has never been better, and this gift provides outdoorsmen and women with a lifetime of outdoor recreational opportunities. Purchasing a Habitat and Access Stamp during this year’s holiday sales promotion is an excellent way to support New York’s wildlife management efforts.”

Lifetime Licenses are available to New York State residents who have resided in New York for at least 12 months prior to purchase (proof of residency required). Lifetime licenses may be purchased at any license-issuing agent, by phone (866-922-2257), or online with a current NYS DMV driver or non-driver ID containing a valid NYS address. Allow two weeks for delivery of Lifetime Licenses purchased online or by phone.

Lifetime Licenses may also be purchased as gifts for residents under the age of 16 with proof of age (birth certificate, passport, driver’s license) and proof of residency (parent/legal guardian proof of residency) for the recipient. Gift lifetime licenses can be purchased in person at any license issuing agent.

Lifetime fishing, trapping or hunting licenses and privileges entitle the holder to all the privileges of equivalent annual licenses and privileges, but these licenses are good for a lifetime (with appropriate hunter/trapper education requirements) – even if the holder is no longer a New York State resident. The combination Lifetime License includes both hunting and fishing privileges, as well as turkey permits:

Available Lifetime Licenses:
Lifetime License (includes hunting, fishing, and turkey hunting privileges)
For a person age 0-4 years: $380
For a person age 5-11 years: $535
For a person age 12-69 years: $765

Lifetime Hunting License: $535
Lifetime Bowhunting Privilege: $235
Lifetime Muzzleloading Privilege: $235
Lifetime Trapping License: $395

Habitat & Access Stamp Sales Promotion

DEC also encourages gift givers to consider supporting efforts to help create and manage wildlife habitat and enhance access for wildlife-dependent recreation.

Now through December 31, purchasers of the $5 Habitat & Access Stamp receive a collectible 2018-19 Habitat Patron pin featuring a barred owl. Revenue from the sale of Habitat & Access Stamps supports DEC’s efforts to improve fish and wildlife habitat and increase access for outdoor recreation. Habitat & Access Stamps can be purchased online, by phone at 1-866-933-2257 (Mon – Fri 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.), or at any License Issuing Agent.

In addition, during this promotional period, anyone that purchases seven stamps in one transaction ($35 donation), will receive the entire DEC collector series of seven pins, including the barred owl, beaver, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, wood duck, bluebird, and woodcock pins, plus an extra 2018-19 barred owl pins.

DEC can only guarantee Christmas delivery of pins for Habitat Stamps sold by December 16, but we will continue to fulfill all orders through the end of the year.

County Announces Formation of Climate  Smart Communities Task Force https://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46412 Tue, 11 Dec 2018 16:06:43 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46412 County Announces Formation of Climate 
Smart Communities Task Force

Group of diverse stakeholders to hold inaugural meeting Dec. 20

Poughkeepsie … Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro and Legislative Chairman A. Gregg Pulver announce the formation of the Dutchess County Climate Smart Communities (CSC) Task Force and invite the public to attend its first official meeting on December 20, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Dutchess County Department of Planning and Development’s new location, 85 Civic Center Plaza in the City of Poughkeepsie. The agenda for the December 20 meeting is available online.

In line with its ongoing efforts to protect the environment, Dutchess County is pursuing certification as part of the CSC program, a statewide network of communities with common environmental goals, including increased energy efficiency, increased use of renewable energy and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to their beneficial impacts on the environment, such actions can also reduce overall energy use and its associated cost. The CSC program also offers solutions to local governments looking to reduce and adapt to climate change, and can be a source of matching grant funds for projects that work to those ends.

County Executive Molinaro said, “Dutchess County remains steadfast in our dedication to reduce our carbon footprint and improve the environment we all share. This first step toward being certified a Climate Smart Community further solidifies our commitment to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, increase our use of renewable energy, and improve our energy efficiency. I thank the members of the Climate Smart Communities Task Force for undertaking this important mission, and I look forward to their work, which will benefit Dutchess County and our environment.”

This fall, County Executive Molinaro and Chairman Pulver appointed 16 community members to serve on the Dutchess County Climate Smart Communities Task Force. The members include community leaders, as well as individuals working in innovative fields leading current efforts to undertake Climate Smart actions. These individuals represent a diverse and talented collection of people committed to reducing the County’s overall energy usage, greening its supply and making it more resilient to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.

The members of the Dutchess County CSC are:

Bridgette Anderson, Associate Dean of Administration for Campus Facilities Management, Dutchess Community College

  • Brad Barclay, Senior Planner, Department of Dutchess County Planning and Development
  • Gary Basset, Mayor, Village of Rhinebeck
  • Dale Borchert, Environment Committee Chair, Dutchess County Legislature
  • Audrey Friedrichsen, Land Use and Environmental Advocacy Attorney, Scenic Hudson
  • Melisa Everett, Executive Director, Sustainable Hudson Valley
  • Mark Figliozzi, Supervisor, Town of Pleasant Valley
  • Jeff Irish, President, Sun Common
  • Vicky Kelly, Environmental Monitoring Program Manager, Institute of Ecosystem Studies
  • Carolyn Klocker, Interim Environment and Energy Program Leader, Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County
  • Christopher Kroner, Principal, MASS Design Group / Hudson Valley Design Lab
  • Jacob Lawrence, Science Teacher, Arlington High School
  • Steve MacAvery, Chair, Dutchess County Environmental Management Council
  • Europa McGovern, Planner and Clean Energy Communities Coordinator, Hudson Valley Regional Council
  • Allan Page, Principal, A. Page & Associates LLC
  • Brian Scoralick, Executive Director, Dutchess County Soil and Water Conservation District

Chairman Pulver, “The knowledge and dedication of the individuals on this Task Force and the resources of the organizations they represent are key to the success of this undertaking. We can learn a great deal from each other, and this endeavor is also a fantastic opportunity to show local communities all that’s already being done at the county and local levels to address these important issues.”

The CSC Task Force will lead the efforts to have Dutchess County certified as a bronze-level Climate Smart Community within 12 to 18 months. In addition to holding open, quarterly meetings, the CSC Task Force will gather necessary information; conduct required studies and submit proper documentation to the New York State CSC program; report the results of the CSC program and submit recommendations to County Executive Molinaro and the County Legislature for official adoption; review grant opportunities to fund necessary studies, inform local governments and advance the County’s certification process.

Scam Warning: ISSUED JOINTLY BY PUTNAM COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE, TOWN OF CARMEL POLICE DEPARTMENT AND KENT POLICE DEPARTMENT https://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46401 Mon, 10 Dec 2018 21:33:53 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=46401 Scam Warning: ISSUED JOINTLY BY PUTNAM COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE, TOWN OF CARMEL POLICE DEPARTMENT AND KENT POLICE DEPARTMENT

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Chief Michael Cazzari and Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens jointly, and on behalf of all Law Enforcement officials in Putnam County, wish a healthy and happy holiday season for all. However, they remind citizens that, unfortunately, criminals are using the generosity and joyfulness of the holiday season as a time to victimize Putnam County residents, especially the elderly.

Currently, law enforcement is investigating a variety of telephone scams in our area; notably, unsolicited telephone callers are impersonating Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees demanding cash payments for unpaid taxes via prepaid debit cards, money orders, or wire transfers from their banks. Another prevalent scam is where the caller alleges to be calling on behalf of someone, usually a grandchild or other relative, who is allegedly in danger or trouble; this scam involves an immediate request for cash, to pay bail, medical bills or a fine.

It is important to remain calm when receiving these types of calls, you need to pause; the IRS will generally contact you by mail, not over the telephone, and the IRS will not ask for payment using a prepaid debit card, a money order or wire a transfer. The IRS also will not ask for a credit card number over the telephone. The IRS suggests if you believe that you owe Federal taxes you can reach the IRS at 800-829-1040.

If you get a call from someone claiming to be calling on behalf of a relative in distress, tell the caller you must consult another family member first, and hang up. Don’t do anything without checking directly with that relative, or a relative close to them that might know where they are to see if they really are in trouble. If the emergency turns out to be real, you or another family member can still respond.

If you suspect any such a fraud you can contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department at (845)225-4300 or your local Police Department.

Those behind this noxious act should know that these fliers, far from inciting fear, will only harden our resolve to combat hate in all its forms. We will not cower in the face of hate. While they spread fear, we will spread love.”
