HEAVY LOAD — A tractor-trailer pulling a concrete utility shelter on a flatbed made its way down the center of Main Street in Cold Spring on Wednesday (Sept. 12), then backed up the center of Main Street. A dispatcher for the trucking company, which is based in Mississippi, could only say the shelter was being delivered to “a forest preserve” for “the park service.” Evan Thompson, manager of Fahnestock State Park, said he hadn’t ordered any concrete utility sheds but it may have been for a cell-tower site off Route 301 near Dennytown Road, which would suggest the driver made a wrong turn.

IMPROVEMENTS AT HOWLAND — With help from the American Sewing Guild Hudson Valley Chapter, the Howland Cultural Center has received an upgrade to improve the theater experience. Sandy Cussick, Mary DuBois, Kathleen Eagan, Isobel Greer, Maura Kristofik, Sue Kreutzberg, Judy Longacre, Peggy Norton, Mary Pedro, Danielle Rudi and J. Jaye Vaughn created hanging draperies that can cover the center’s four art galleries during a performance, creating a neutral backdrop.
