Dedicated service | Westport Column

I wish to acknowledge one of Keeseville’s residents who just retired from Clinton Community College after many years of dedicated service greatly enhancing the lives of those blessed to have encountered him. Hopefully Clinton Community College’s loss will be Keeseville’s gain as Harry Davis begins his new retired life. I wish him all the best and happiness.

Received an email from Chris Maron, Executive Director of Champlain Area Trails, concerning the photo and captioning contest: This is the last week of voting in the Photo and Caption Contest. Contest judge Paul Martin Lester of Fullerton, Calif., has reviewed the photos and wrote, “I really liked the personal stories in the captions. Folks really love where you live.”  So check out the photos and vote for the People’s Choice winner.  It’s easy.  Click champlainareatrails.com, go to Contest, and enjoy the photos and captions.  Then vote.

Maron also had information regarding a joint event: CATS and the Friends of Poke-O-Moonshine are hosting a mammal and bird tracking hike/snowshoe on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 9:30 a.m. On this half-day outing naturalists David Thomas-Train and Elizabeth Lee will  identify and discuss animal tracks along the southern flanks of Poke-O-Moonshine. The hike will have some off-trail exploring on snowshoes.  Participants should dress warmly and bring provisions for a three-to-four hour hike. Please will meet at the lower Poke-O-Moonshine trailhead, one mile south of the campground on Route 9.

I’m very grateful to Desotell’s Garage for the fine plow service they provide to our community. The ice storm was quite a challenge but I’m very happy with the clearing of my driveway. I must say Keeseville’s roads are far better than Plattsburgh’s with regards to the condition of driving. My gratitude to our road crews.

Had a chance to get outside to find the squirrel not only pulled off one of the perches from my feeder, he chewed a huge section off the tube rendering the feeder pretty useless before a creative taping job. Now all the birds are happy again and my cat is loving every minute of it when she is not too busy sleeping under the warm covers.
