Smythe Earns New York League Of Conservation Voters (NYLCV) Endorsement

(Red Hook, NY) Karen Smythe today announced she has earned the endorsement of the New York League of Conservation Voters (NYLCV). This endorsement follows the failing grade current Senator Sue Serino received on the NYLCV annual report card. Senator Serino earned a score of 38% from the NYLCV, which was due to her awful voting record on protecting natural resources and promoting environmental conservation. The Hudson Valley economy relies on clean water, agricultural products, and tourists to visit the many pristine landscapes.

“I appreciate the New York League of Conservation Voters endorsing my campaign and recognizing my dedication to protect our natural resources,” Karen Smythe said. “I was dismayed, together with many other voters, at how poorly Sue Serino did on protecting our environment and the resources we all rely on to live, work, and raise our families here in the Hudson Valley. Clearly, we need new leadership in Albany if we are going to ensure our natural resources are protected and used sustainably.”

Marcia Bystryn, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “Karen Smythe has been a dedicated environmentalist throughout her career. She has worked both in her community through the Beatrix Farrand Garden Association and in her professional life to spearhead many environmental initiatives. She will prioritize legislation to protect New Yorkers from hazardous waste and improve resiliency. We are proud to stand with Smythe in her election for State Senate and we urge New Yorkers in District 41 to cast their ballot for her this fall.”

The New York League of Conservation Voters (NYLCV) endorsement of Karen Smythe for the 41st Senate District was announced shortly after they issued their annual scorecard for all state officials. In this year’s report, Senator Serino received a failing grade of 38%, ranking her at the bottom of the State Legislature on this critical issue. For more information about the New York League of Conservation Voters, their scorecard, and their priority issues, please visit: http://nylcv.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/2018-scorecard-Final.pdf

Obituary, Dorothy “Dot” Burdick http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43039 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 19:56:52 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43039  

Stanfordville – Dorothy Edith Burdick (nee Barton) 94 of Stanfordville, NY died on Saturday, August 11, 2018, at Vassar Brothers Hospital with three generations by her side.

Dot was born the only child of Frank and Carrie Barton on March 8, 1924. Following her education at the Stanford Free School and Millbrook High School, she went to Albany to train as a Well-Baby Nurse and had fond memories of her years as a nanny to the Wing family. While organizing a lecture on India for the Grange, she caught the eye of a soldier just home from the war. After a short courtship, she and that soldier, Irving Charles Burdick, were married on June 4, 1949. Over the next 55 years, they made their life in Stanfordville. Together they raised four children through good times and hardships, all the while instilling devotion to family, faith, and community. The family enjoyed many camping trips culminating in a cross-country adventure to show their children the America they so dearly loved. The family always returned to the homestead they built on Rt. 82, which became a place for homecoming, giving thanks, and fellowship.

Dorothy loved the United Church of Christ in Stanfordville her entire life, where eight generations of her family have been baptized. As a member, she served in just about every position including Sunday School Teacher for 65 years.

Dot was a devoted member of the Stanford Grange for 82 years, serving in many capacities including Lady Assistant Steward, Lecturer, Grange Historian, and on the Executive Committee. She will be remembered as a commanding fixture at the Dutchess County Fair for many years as a cashier for the Grange Family Snack Bar.

She volunteered as a Cub Scout, Brownie, and 4-H leader and was one of the proud founding members of the “Asparagus” Club.

As Town Historian, preserving the history of Stanfordville for future generations was one of Dorothy’s greatest passions. Among her many other duties, she served on the Stanford Rescue Squad, Secretary of the Stanford Fire Department, an election poll inspector, and helped write “Stanford Memories”.

Her other jobs included working at; Post’s Farm & Garden store, Loft’s Candy Shop, Mid-Hudson Chevrolet, and the Pine Plains Central School District as a substitute teacher.

Her family was her greatest hobby. She was an avid seamstress, knitter, and quilter, making special Christmas pajamas for her grandchildren, and made her daughter’s beautiful wedding dress.

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband; and in-laws: Walter and Marion Post, Stanley and Ann Burdick, and Lois Husted. She is survived by her children: Kent and his wife Theresa, Jay, Mark and his partner Arlene, and Lea and her husband Michael; as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Mechelle, her husband Erik, and son Charlie; Kelly and her partner Brandon; Jodi, her husband Ryan, daughter Rory, and son Mack; Dylan; Mikala; a great many nieces and nephews; and the citizens of Stanfordville who are left to carry on her great work.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor can be made to the United Church of Christ Stanfordville, PO Box 424, Stanfordville, NY 12581.

LUCKY ORPHANS HORSE RESCUE TO RECEIVE TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR GRANT IN HONOR OF LOCAL DOCTOR http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43033 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 19:21:00 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43033  

LUCKY ORPHANS HORSE RESCUE TO RECEIVE TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR GRANT IN HONOR OF LOCAL DOCTOR

Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue announced today plans to establish the William R. Updegraff, M.D. Memorial Fund which will help to compensate for equine medical care at the non-profit.  The first grant of $10,000.00 has been donated by the Marion E. Cantwell Testamentary Trust.  Deanna Mancuso, the founder of Lucky Orphans, stated, “Our 51 forever rescued horses and the entire team here are so grateful for such generous local support.”  Mancuso plans to have a special plaque made in honor of the endowment.
Dr. Bill Updegraff was a Dutchess County resident and practiced Otolaryngology, which is focused on diseases of the ear, nose, and throat. Retiring after 50 years of service at age 79, Dr. Updegraff was the recipient of numerous awards.  He passed away at age 97 having left a legacy of love for his patients, family, and friends.
An excellent horseman and lover of animals, he grew up riding American Standardbreds.  However, the future doctor’s favorite horse was an old gray mare named Bonnie, who was blind in one eye.  As a teenager, he rode Bonnie to deliver newspapers to his neighbors in Boone, Iowa.  As a father and grandfather, Updegraff shared his strong love of horses with his daughters and later his grandchildren.
The William R. Updegraff, M.D. Memorial Fund for the medical care of the horses at Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue will perpetuate the good doctor’s love and concern for the continuing care of orphaned horses everywhere.  Mancuso plans to have a ceremony to unveil the new plaque in the near future.

Case of Powassan Virus in Dutchess http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43027 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 18:48:06 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43027  

Case of Powassan Virus in Dutchess
Tick bite prevention strategies help reduce risk of tick-borne diseases

The Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health (DBCH) reminds everyone of the continued importance of tick bite prevention as primary protection from tick-borne disease. This reminder comes as the Department confirms a case of Powassan virus, a rare but potentially serious tick-borne disease, in a Dutchess County resident. The individual contracted the virus in the late spring, and is currently recovering at home.

“Although risk of contracting any tick-borne disease peaks in June and July, ticks may be active in Dutchess County throughout the year if temperatures are above freezing,” said Anil K. Vaidian, MD, MPH, DBCH Commissioner. “Residents should remain diligent about tick bite prevention practices as they enjoy outdoor activities in these waning weeks of summer.”

Powassan virus can cause symptoms ranging from a mild flu-like illness to life-threatening neurologic disease. While Powassan virus is a known risk from tick bites, it is a much rarer disease than more commonly diagnosed tick-borne infections like Lyme disease, anaplasmosis and babesiosis. Since 2007, there have been a total of 30 cases of Powassan in New York State.  Dutchess County has had a total of 7 cases, with the first recorded in 2009.

Best practices to prevent tick bites include:

  • Walking in the center of clear, well-traveled trails and avoiding walking through dense woods or brush.
  • Wearing light-colored clothing so ticks can be easily spotted; closed-toe shoes; long pants tucked into socks; and long-sleeved shirts as a barrier between your skin and ticks in the environment.
  • Wearing clothing treated with permethrin to repel and kill ticks.
  • Using EPA-registered insect repellents containing the active ingredient DEET, Picaridin or IR3535.

 

“Frequent full-body tick checks and prompt removal of any attached ticks remain a crucial element in preventing transmission of tick-borne disease,” said Vaidian. “We do need to be mindful that Powassan virus has been shown to have the capacity for transmission with short periods of tick attachment. So to prevent this disease, it is important for residents to check for ticks throughout the day and as soon as possible when returning inside.”

County Program Teaches Young Residents  Vital Financial and Computer Skills http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43024 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 17:04:07 +0000 http://www.theharlemvalleynews.net/?p=43024  

County Program Teaches Young Residents 
Vital Financial and Computer Skills

Poughkeepsie… Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro congratulates 20 local young people who recently completed the Dutchess County Department of Community and Family Services (DCFS) “Youth Financial Literacy & Computer Training Program,” an annual two-day course that teaches them valuable financial and computer skills. DCFS held two training sessions this summer in July and August, the latter concluding last week.

DCFS collaborated with three local agencies – Dutchess BOCES, TEG Federal Credit Union, and the Dutchess County Workforce Investment Board – to coordinate financial and computer training for local youth, many of whose families receive services from the department. The training teaches them about budgeting and computer programs.

A mentor from TEG Federal Credit Union taught students about financial literacy, and instructor from Dutchess BOCES taught them about budgeting, employment, and computer skills, as well as the dangers of and appropriate use of the Internet and social media.

County Executive Molinaro said, “Bolstered by the skills they’ve learned during this program, these young men and women are members of the community in whom we can all be proud, and Dutchess County looks forward to their future success. The skills they’ve each learned as part of the program will serve them well in their future endeavors, and Dutchess County supports their aspirations and will continue to help them attain their goals. We thank our community partners for their willingness to share their insight, as well as for making an investment of time and resources in Dutchess County’s future leaders.”

The participants, who range in age between 14 and 18, took part in the training sessions and all came from families who receive public assistance or foster care services from DCFS. Participants must achieve satisfactory attendance and satisfactory grades in school to qualify for the program, which is funded through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program and the Foster Care Block Grant.

At the successful completion of two full days in the program, each participant earned a laptop computer and printer to help them pursue their goals of attending college and pursuing a career.

In the past 12 years, the computer training program has served 256 youths. Eleven of the 12 Foster Care youth enrolled in the last class have now successfully moved on to independence, no longer requiring assistance through DCFS, or have begun attending college classes. Ninety-nine percent of youth participating in the program from 2011 to 2017 are no longer on Temporary Assistance. 

This program has been recognized as a best practice for youth job preparation and was showcased at the 2015 summer conference of the New York Public Welfare Association.

Fighting to Make Voting Easier

One of the biggest differences between me and Donald Trump enabler Terrence Murphy is our stance on voting rights. I support making voting easier, with same-day registration, early voting, and voting by mail. Terrence Murphy has proposed a Voter ID bill, that not only would reduce voter participation, but would disenfranchise historically marginalized groups such as Hispanic and African-American voters. This is a move right out of the Jim Crow south, and does not reflect the values of voters in the Hudson Valley.
