Applefest Attracts Largest Crowd Ever
Richard Klein/The Warwick Valley Dispatch
Huge crowds took to the streets in the Village of Warwick. On Railroad Avenue, the crowds were shoulder to shoulder for most of the day.
In 14 years it has never rained on Applefest and once again
it was a gorgeous day for this year’s event on Sun., Oct. 3. Like
the crafts and vendors, the crowds and people were aplenty.
"This crowd is larger than ever before at Applefest," comment-
ed Town of Warwick Police Chief Thomas McGovern.
There were 286 craft vendors and 45 food vendors.
One of the many non-profit organizations - Chicks with
Sticks - raised several hundred dollars for the Susan G.
Koman Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. A big hit
among patrons were the apple filled cups covered with hot
caramel, which were offered by the Warwick Lions Club.

Entered As Second Class Matter
Warwick, N.Y. 10990
Publication No.666800
The skies may have been gray on Sat., Oct. 2, but purple
and gold were the colors of the day as Warwick Valley High
School celebrated Homecoming. The excitement was evident all week with each day being a new theme and students
gathering in the bus garage every evening to build floats. The
junior and senior girls practiced for the Powder Puff football
game and the band marched in the school parking lot at 8
a.m. every morning in preparation for the parade.
The weekend festivities kicked-off on Fri. night with a
Pep Rally followed by the Powder Puff game. In addition to
all the other Homecoming activities of the week, each class
at the high school was busy raising money for various charities. At the Pep Rally the results of their efforts were
announced with an impressive $2000 plus being raised for
the four charities chosen by each class.
The sophomore class won an award for raising the
most money, but the real winners were the charities and
causes that benefited from the students’ generosity. The
freshman class donated its proceeds to the Make-A-Wish
Foundation. The sophomores raised over $1,000 for the
Anthony Quinn Scholarship Fund in memory of the
WVHS Swim Coach, who tragically passed away last winter in a car accident. The junior class contributed to the
Brian Ahearn Children’s Fund and the senior class honored
their friend and classmate, Katelyn Knebel, who lost her
valiant battle with cancer last month, by raising money for
Katelyn’s Cause.
The traditional crowning of the Homecoming King
and Queen also took place at the Pep Rally. Seniors Erik

Federal Disaster Aid Sought for Warwick Farms
U.S. Rep. Sue Kelly urges the U.S. Department of
Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman to provide disaster
assistance from the USDA directly to growers in Warwick
and throughout Orange County to help them compensate
for losses they have suffered from heavy rains and weatherrelated disasters.
In a Sept. 21 letter to Veneman, Kelly wrote that local
farmers "suffered devastating damage that the heavy rains
of Sept. 8 and 9 have inflicted on the already weatherstressed agricultural crops." Kelly added that "many acres
of vegetables, orchards and row crops are under water,
making timely harvest impossible of many late summer
and fall harvested crops."
Kelly noted that Hudson Valley growers "have already
experienced several weather-related disasters this season
even before the latest setback. This past spring, freezing
temperatures, hail damage and frost plagued the entire
state of New York. With the Hudson Valley among the
hardest-hit regions, many apple and onion growers suffered a total loss of crop production."
On Sept. 16, Governor George Pataki formally
requested disaster assistance from the USDA for 42 New
York counties, including Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and
Westchester in Rep. Kelly's Congressional District. Kelly
asked Veneman to expedite the Governor's request.
"By increasing disaster assistance, small and medium-
size family farms will receive the aid they need to continue
to survive," Kelly wrote. "Additional assistance will not
only further reduce debt but it would also help the growers
to make investments in some of the marketing, processing
and value-added projects they are currently exploring."
Kelly stressed to Veneman that it is vitally important
that disaster assistance go directly to local farmers in order
to avoid any bureaucratic delays. There is no time to waste
in the effort to help Warwick Valley and other Orange
County farmers "compensate for losses sustained because
of excessively wet weather and other damaging conditions
this growing season," Kelly wrote.

The Knights will provide construction helmets and

Rabbitt Secures Funding for Warwick DPW
Annie Rabbitt, Deputy Supervisor of the Town of
Warwick, announced that she has secured $115,000 for a
new dump truck.
"I am pleased to have been able to obtain this crucial
funding, which will provide our town with a brand new,
state-of-the art dump truck," Rabbitt said. "Our present
equipment is old and worn. The new truck will allow the
Department of Public Works to serve our community
more safely and efficiently."
Rabbitt explained that she appealed to State Senator
Thomas Morahan, who recently responded to her request
for funds. "I applaud Senator Morahan for his timely
action in this matter," she said. " He clearly understood the
needs of the people of Warwick, and came to our aid as

Court Dismisses Charges
Against Annie Rabbitt
By Eileen Patterson
On Oct. 1, New York State Supreme Court Justice
Joseph Cannizzaro dismissed charges of fraud made
against Annie Rabbitt by her opponent Bonnie Kraham.
The two women are opposing candidates bidding for the
open Assembly seat in Orange County. The date of the
decision is significant because that is the date that all litigation must be complete so that the New York State Board
of Elections can certify the ballots.
With the certification of ballots, it becomes official
that Kraham will run on the Democratic line and Rabbit
will run on the Republican and Conservative lines.
Justice Cannizzaro found that there was no fraud committed by Rabbitt, her family, or her campaign manager. In
his decision, the Justice wrote, "The court finds that the
petitioners (Kraham) have failed to establish that the
respondent candidate’s designating petition was permeated
with fraud." Kraham alleged that Rabbitt’s family members

On Saturday the class floats, vehicles carrying the
homecoming court, sports teams and busses with the band
all made their way to Walsh’s Restaurant on Rte. 94 where
the Homecoming Parade stepped off at noon. The parade
made its way through the Village to the reviewing stand in
front of WVT Communications to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The 80-plus member WVHS Marching
Band, under the direction of Band Director Chris Persad,
and led by Drum Majors Andrew Reighard and Samantha
Bisaro, stirred the crowd with their music and set the festive mood.
had fraudulently signed her name to witness statements on
voter petitions.
Rabbitt’s campaign manager, Gen Winstanley, was also
named in the charges brought by Kraham. Those charges
were also dismissed. Kraham’s committee hired a handwriting analyst to confer with their charges but did not call
the analyst to testify. Mrs. Winstanley said, "The handwriting expert must be the same one Dan Rather used."
Rabbitt and her campaign management are happy
about the decision and excited to continue her campaign.
In a written statement, Annie Rabbitt said, "Justice has
truly prevailed. This case was nothing more than a smear
attempt by a desperate rival. It is unconscionable that these
people would falsely accuse me and my family of fraud." A
representative from Rabbitt’s campaign added, "It is a wonderful decision for all residents of the 97th district."
A telephone call, placed by The Dispatch, to Kraham’s
campaign manager was not returned as of press time.
On the reviewing stand, Principal Dick Phebus,
District Superintendent Dr. Joseph Natale, Mayor Michael
Newhard, Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton and several
members of the School Board presided over the celebration
and judged the floats. This year’s float theme was "Board
Games." The freshmen recreated the game "Operation,"
illustrating the fate of a Kingston player at the hands of
Wildcat surgeons. The sophomore efforts went into the
classic board game of "Candy Land," which featured a hapless Kingston football player mired in a Molasses Swamp.
The juniors had the likes of Miss Scarlett and Colonel
Mustard with their float depicting the game of "Clue"….it
was the Wildcat, on the field, with the football. The seniors
rounded out the board game extravaganza with a clever
imitation of "Monopoly." In the end, the judges placed the
Freshmen and Juniors in a tie for third, second place went
to the Seniors and the big winner for the 2004
Homecoming Float competition was the Sophomore Class.
After the parade, the crowd reassembled at the football
field for the game against the Kingston Tigers. In the end
the Tigers prevailed, winning 42-13. The disappointment
of losing the football game however, did not overshadow
the excitement of the week: the floats that were built, the
money raised for good causes and the camaraderie and
spirit that is Homecoming.

Guidelines for Effective Letters
Everyone has a right to express an honest opinion, but we
would like to remind readers of a few simple rules for writing
effective letters.
Less is more! The shorter your letter the more likely it is to be
read. Civility is more persuasive than invectiveness. That is, honey
catches more flies than vinegar.
When you read a letter that angers you or that you disagree
with, we warmly encourage you to write a response following the
guidelines suggested above. Our pages are always open to lively
debate, but play fair.
Needless to say, misinformation and gratuitous insult will not
survive the editor’s pen.
All letters should be approximately 400 words or less due to
space limitations. Letters must be signed with full name and contain a telephone number for verification purposes. Anonymous or
unsigned letters will not be published.
Letters may be edited for length and style. The deadline
for sending letters is 12 noon on Mondays. Letters may be mailed

Volunteers & Community Pull Together for Kings Karnival
On behalf of the Kings Elementary PTA, I would like to take
this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in our
annual Kings Karnival. Despite the less than desirable weather due
to Hurricane Ivan, we were still able to have a modified event by
moving indoors. We appreciate all those who braved the elements
to attend and enjoy the games, prizes, food, crafts and fun.
No event put on by the Kings PTA is possible without the support of our many volunteers. We would like to thank the dozens of
parent and teacher volunteers who gave of their time and talent to
help make the Kings Karnival a success. Your support is truly appreciated. We would also like to acknowledge the energy and enthusiasm displayed by the many Middle School and High School volun-
teers who also spent their time on a rainy Saturday working at the
Karnival – they set a fine example for the students at Kings.
Finally, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the merchants and
businesses of Warwick, Chester, Sugar Loaf and Florida for their
generous donations of goods and services to our popular raffle
table. The willingness of these businesses to help out a local school,
year after year, brings true meaning to those new banners on
Warwick’s Main St. – Great Community, Great Schools. Thank
you very much for your continued support.
President, Kings PTA
Heartfelt Gratitude for Successful Gala
It is with heartfelt gratitude and tremendous excitement that
I would like to acknowledge the Friends of the Albert Wisner
Public Library’s tremendous success in planning this year’s
Moonlight Over Warwick Gala. The Committee under the leadership of Colleen Larsen and Sharon Scott presided over a delightful evening. The sold out crowd enjoyed dining and dancing as
well as a silent auction of over seventy items donated by local businesses and individuals.
This event was an important opportunity for the supporters
of the library to share their enthusiasm for our work and commitment to our plans for a new library. That $8,000 was raised in one
festive and fun evening was a bonus. Quality communities need
quality libraries and this community is certainly committed to
establishing a quality library in Warwick. Thanks to all the
Friends, Donors and Guest who made this evening possible. We
are already looking forward to and planning for next year’s
Moonlight Over Warwick Gala, scheduled for October 15, 2005.
Warwick Superintendent Keeps His Word
I would just like to publicly thank Dr. J. Natale for his communication with parents of Warwick Valley’s high school and
middle school cross-country teams and for being true to his word.
Our children are growing up at a time when we need to be
extra vigilant about security and the threat of terrorism. Dr.
Natale has clearly stated his policy about not permitting school
activities when the Federal Department of Homeland Security
issues an "orange" alert.
On August 1, 2004, the DHS and FBI jointly posted an advisory elevating parts of New York City to "orange." This advisory
was not 100% clear on the specific areas of the city that were
affected. As a result, the cross-country teams were not being permitted to attend two meets that, in the world of this sport, are
extremely important to the coaches and runners. (Last year, the
Manhattan College Invitational meet hosted 325 schools from 15
states and over 9,800 runners.)
When contacted by concerned parents, Dr. Natale returned
phone calls, was willing to listen, and further researched the advisory. Upon discovering that the advisory affected only one small
section of Manhattan, not near the meet in the Bronx, Dr. Natale
re-evaluated the situation and allowed the teams to participate.
As parents, we can appreciate and are thankful for his concern
about the safety of the children as well as the school staff. We also
understand that, in the event the "orange" alert does affect an area that
a school group wishes to visit, they will not be permitted to attend.
So, thank you, Dr. Natale for your communication, concern,
and for being true to your word.
The ‘Queen’ Proclaims
Recently, I was chosen as "Queen for a Day" at "Ladies Night
Out." I was treated so kindly and generously by the members of
the Warwick Merchants Guild. I’m honored and most grateful.
I’d like to say, too, that we are so fortunate to have such wonderful shops, restaurants and salons at our disposal. They knock
themselves out to provide the community with interesting and fun
At all of our SACHA meetings and functions I urge our members and participants to patronize our local merchants. Save gas
money and time driving to the mall. Shop and eat locally.
Again, my thanks to the Warwick Merchants Guild and my
friends for a lovely honor.

God the Father, free from pain and at eternal rest."
Thank You for Making Warwick Map Possible
I would like to thank the Warwick
community for supporting the 2004
Warwick Map. Those of you who’ve sponsored the publication should be commended; without you, this map would not have
been possible. Within the 4-week time
frame, we were able to meet the Applefest
The maps were a complete success!
They were flying out of their holders on
Sunday, a sight that made these new gray
hairs and bags under my eyes all worth
while. I am now extremely addicted to coffee, and need some time to recover.
Thank you.

Avanti Raises Funds for
Breast Cancer
One in eight women will develop
breast cancer in her lifetime. Chances are,
almost all of us will be touched by this disease in one way or another, whether it’s
mother, daughter, wife, friend, or other
family member who battles against it.
Avanti and French Dressing Jeanswear
(FDJ) are committed to helping to find a
cure for breast cancer. That’s why they are
proud to sponsor Pink Ribbon Days
throughout October. Working in conjunction with participating retailers across
North America, FDJ will donate $1 to
breast cancer research and awareness every
time a customer tries on a pair of FDJ
pants. In Oct. 2003, over $45,000 was
raised through Pink Ribbon Days.
This is the fourth year that Avanti has
been a part of Pink Ribbon Days. "The
program gives us a chance to do something
for this very worthwhile cause," said store
owner Donna Roberto Martin. "We invite
our customers to come to Avanti to try on
a pair of FDJ pants. The more pants that
are tried on, the more money we raise."
Avanti, located on Two Jockey Hollow
Road, New Milford, is open Tuesdays
through Fridays, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and
Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more
information, call 986-6891.

Pride Soaring High at Florida
By Colleen McAvey
The Village of Florida was alive with the colors of
orange and blue for the S.S. Seward Spartan Homecoming
on Sat., Oct. 2. From the Village streets to the soccer field,
Florida’s 2004 Homecoming was a huge success. Tractors
(donated from Chester Valley Equipment) pulling the high
school parade floats was only the beginning of a day filled
with family, friends and neighbors, who were all out to
enjoy their children and Village pride.
The "Kings" and "Queens" rode atop convertibles as
the crowd cheered their names and took pictures. Next
came the floats with the theme of "Super Heroes." The
Freshman Class of 2008 won first place for their float,
which was dedicated to the Armed Forces, FDNY, NYPD
and S.S. Seward heroes - their own teachers and staff. The
Juniors took second place with their hero sandwich. The
Sophomores, who came in third, challenged the crowd and
judges to see the hero in themselves. Fourth place went to
the hardworking Senior Class who toasted the judges with
Snapple iced tea.
Later in the afternoon, with the smell of hot dogs in
the air, the Florida Varsity Girls Soccer Team defeated
Tuxedo 3-0. The Lady Spartans are now 9 - 0 overall and 6
- 0 in their league. They shared something in common
with their opponents - their coach DiMartino, was the
Tuxedo coach last year.
The girls enjoyed cookies made by Coach D's wife, and
they invited the Tuxedo team to enjoy hot dogs and soda
with them. There was even a birthday cake and "Happy
Birthday" was sung to two members of the Tuxedo girl’s
squad and one member of the Florida Lady Spartans. Once
again the small Village of Florida shows us all how to live
well, how to enjoy the basic things in life and to ensure
those students who grow beyond her borders, that Florida,
N.Y. is a great place to come home to.

Florida School Builds Pride With K’NEX
S.S. Seward is helping create a sense of pride for everyone in the community through an exciting new program
with K’NEX. The "Building School Pride" program is an
in-school building program that will bring to life the math,
science and technology concepts and lessons that the students will study in class.
S.S. Seward’s Computer six class will be participating in
this one-of-a-kind curriculum opportunity and building the
K’NEX Ultimate Big Air Ball Tower in class. This challenging, hands-on activity will help demonstrate shapes and
angles for math classes; examine simple machines and the
Bernoulli Principle in action for science classes; and teach
the building process in technology classes by exemplifying
the design process, applying shapes to structural design and
illustrating a mechanical system.
"This is an opportunity for students to join together
and have fun building a project that teaches important,
fundamental concepts," says Principal Dr. Clement
Ceccarelli. "Putting their masterpiece on display for the
entire community to see gives them a great sense of pride
and accomplishment in their work and what they are
Once Computer six has completed the Ultimate Big
Air Ball Tower set, the class will deliver and present their
Ultimate Big Air Ball Tower to Toys "R" Us at 88 Dunning
Rd. in Middletown, NY, as part of the birthday festivities
for Toys R’ Us spokes-giraffe, Geoffrey.
A specially built K’NEX display, complete with an area
to post the school’s name and signatures of all the children
who helped build the model, will be featured in the Toys
"R" Us store. Students are encouraging friends and family
to share in their experience and check out their accomplishment! The model will be on display throughout the
holiday season.
Village of
By Mayor Jim Pawliczek
For the past six weeks, many of you have heard
the noise of heavy-duty construction equipment
echoing throughout the Village.
After several days and numerous complaints, I
asked Adrian Mateosian, the Village Building
Inspector, to investigate. He reported the work is being
done on a 32- acre site on Glenmere Avenue owned by
Jan and Elizabeth Jansen. Approximately half of the
property is in the Village and half is in the Town of
Warwick. The parcel has been stripped of trees, clearcut and the elevations changed as much as 15’ to 20’.
A massive excavator, with a hydraulic hammer,
with the potential to crush thousands of tons of rock
each day, was causing the constant tap-tap-tap. A
rock fabricator, dump trucks and a front-end loader
caused additional noises. Most of the work being
done is on the property located in the Town of
Warwick. On Aug. 27th I notified the Town of
Warwick’s Building Inspector of these conditions.
On Aug. 30th he informed me the Town of Warwick’s
attorney stated the operation was considered a permitted agricultural use in a residential zone.
On Sept. 3rd an officer from the Department of
Environmental Conservation said they would be doing
a site visit. On Sept. 13th, the DEC contacted the
Village and indicated the visit would be within a day or
two. At that time, the officer stated a Draft
Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) is required if
more than one acre of land is cleared and that the maximum amount of product that could be removed within any one-year period is 750 cubic yards. He also stated the owner would be told to cease operation until a
site plan and a plan for the utilization of the stone
being excavated had been submitted and approved.
On Sept. 14th the Orange County Planning
Department indicated that no plans had been filed to
date for their review. On Sept. 23rd DEC Officer
Robert Martin contacted the Village to state the property owner had been told to cease operation. On
Sept. 29th Officer Martin indicated the project was
not under the jurisdiction of the DEC.
In recent years, the Village of Florida and the
Town of Warwick have both adopted Master Plans
and revised Zoning Laws at much expense and effort.
This appears to have been a waste of time and money
if this property owner can continue, unabated, without permits, environmental impact studies, planning
board review or municipal approval. At this writing,
the tap-tap-tap continues to permeate through the
Village without regard for neighbors, environment,
zoning laws or the impact this will have on our
Village and Glenmere Avenue. A greater shame is
that now taxpayer dollars must be spent to bring
someone, who should, and does, know better into
compliance with zoning regulations.

Closing Swimming Pool Properly for Easy Spring Opening
By Eileen Patterson
The leaves are changing color and the air is getting
colder - it’s a sure sign of fall. For pool owners, it’s a sure
sign of one more chore before settling down for winter.
Experts agree that in the Hudson Valley, it’s best to close the
pool before the leaves start blowing around. Now that the
night time temperature is dropping into the 40’s and the
daytime temps are in the 60's to low 70's, you should begin
gathering your supplies for closing the pool.
Waiting any longer may result in a layer of leaves inside
the pool which will increase the risk of an algae bloom in the
spring. Start by thoroughly vacuuming and brushing the
pool and be sure to remove leaves, debris, and any organic
matter from the pool. If this clutter remains in the pool,
you’ll be faced with a quite a slimy mess in the spring.
Test and Balance the Water
One week before closing the pool test and balance the
water with a test kit from a pool supply store. You want to
aim for a pH level between 7.2 and 7.6 and a total alkalinity of 80-120ppm. Consider adding a long lasting algaecide,
which will help keep the water clear. This algaecide can be
added immediately prior to adding the cover. If you are
not sure of how to test the pH or alkalinity bring a water
sample to a pool chemical dealer, who will recommend all
of the necessary chemicals.
Lower the Water Level
The amount of drainage should correspond to the
type of pool you own. Vinyl-lined in-ground pools should
be drained to one inch below the skimmer mouth. Plaster
pools with solid covers should be drained between one to
six inches below the skimmer mouth or tile. Paint-finished
pools with solid covers should be drained six inches below
the skimmer mouth and pools with mesh covers or no covers should be drained 18–24 inches below the skimmer
mouth. The water level should leave room for expansion to
accommodate ice build-up. Draining above ground pools
entirely will destroy the integrity of the vinyl liner because
they are supported by the water in them.
For an in-ground pool, you do not have to drain any
water out of the pool provided that underground pipes are
properly blown out and plugged. If the pool has decorative
ceramic tiles at the water line, lower the water below the tiles.
Pools that are drained too low cause undue stress on the
pool cover thereby shortening its life as well as exposing the
pool liner to the air and causing it to prematurely dry out.
Preparing the Filter for Winter Storage
After an extensive backwashing, shut off all pool
equipment and drain the pump, filter, heater and hoses.
Inspect the filter unit for wear and tear, remove the multiport valve and check the filtering media. Replace with new
media every three years, or when it can't keep the pool
Drain DE filter tanks and leave backwash valve open.
It is not recommended to acid wash DE filters at the time
of the pool closing. It’s best to do this in the spring so that
you can immediately run pool water through the system.
Using muriatic acid on a DE filter just prior to storing it
will result in degradation of the filter parts over the winter.
Sand filters should be unplugged with the filter drain plug
left off. Make sure the multi-port valve has no water in it
and blow it out with a compressor or shop vac. Also make
sure that pump is completely drained of any water. Remove
any drain plugs from the pump.
It is a good idea to store small plugs or parts in the
pump basket. This way you will be able to find them easily
in the spring. Disconnect pump/filter unit if possible and
store in a garage or shed away from the risk of freezing. If
you have a sand filter or moving the unit is not possible,
securely cover the unit.
Closing an In-ground Pool
The challenging part of closing an in-ground pool
comes next. The underground lines need to be completely
drained of water. If water remains and freezes, the lines
could burst, making for an expensive repair job come
spring. In addition to the winter closing chemicals, it is
recommended that you add pool anti-freeze to the pool
directly prior to closing. This non-toxic blue product will
help protect underground pool lines from damage. Never
use car anti-freeze – it is not designed for swimming pool
use and is extremely toxic, presenting a poisoning danger
for small children and animals. Blow out all return jet
pipes using an air compressor or shop vac.
Another option is to screw the compressor fitting into
the drain plug of the pump. This will give a good seal and
allow the entire system to be emptied from that one spot.
Keep the air blowing until the air bubbles start to become
visible from the return jets in the pool. Put a plug in the fitting under the water when bubbles are blowing at full
force. This will mean that most of the water is out of the
pipe and it’s important to make sure the plug is in tight.
From the suction side, blow out all skimmer pipes in a
similar fashion. Put a plug in the skimmer when bubbles
start to become visible. Applying teflon tape on the plug
threads before installing insures a tight seal. Make sure
there is something in the skimmer to allow for water
expansion when it freezes - usually a closed empty plastic
bottle will work. Water can easily freeze in a skimmer and
crack the plastic.
Blow out main drain line. When you see bubbles coming out of the drain, plug the pipe on your end or close the
gate valve. This is as much protection as you can give to a
main drain line. By doing this you will cause an "air lock"
in the line which should stop water from entering the pipe
from the pool side. Put duct tape on all exposed pipes to
prevent anything from getting into them.
Preparing the Cover
Inspect and clean the cover if necessary. Gather water
bags, sand bags or milk jugs, and fill them. Roll the cover
out over the pool and weight it down securely. During the
fall season and before the winter hits, it is a good idea to
pump off excess water from the cover. It is inevitable that
the cover will collect leaves and water during the off season,
but late fall and early winter maintenance will reduce the
time spent opening the pool and extend the life of the
Before installing the cover, mix any granular winterizing chemicals in a bucket so that they are totally dissolved
before pouring into the pool. Granules settling on the pool
floor may stain the liner. If you are using any liquid winterizing chemicals, pour them in the pool as well. Make
sure one of your winterize chemicals consists of a shock
product and the chlorine level in the pool should be over
3.0. Blow up and install the air pillow. Air pillows are not
mandatory but are a good idea in case the water in the pool
freezes, expands, and breaks the pool wall.
Store Chemicals Away from Children
Remember to store swimming pool chemicals in a
cool dry and secure place away from children and pets. All
pool accessories need to be removed and stored for the
winter. This includes ladders, steps, floats, solar reels, and
solar covers. Also take out the return directional and skimmer accessories. Remove rope and floats from pool and put
with the rest of the supplies. Remove dive board and ladders. Put in a safe spot - a shed or the garage.
The final step should be to remember to lock the pool
gate for the winter!
Mt. Alverno Participates in National Assisted Living Week
It began with Grandparents Day, celebrated this year on
Sept. 12, which marked the beginning of the 10th Annual
National Assisted Living Week, Sept. 12 – 18. On the Warwick
Health Care Campus of the Bon Secours Charity Health Care
System, Mount Alverno Center Adult Home celebrated the
week with a series of entertaining events. These events included visits by the Warwick Quilters, an antique show, volunteers
teaching games, local officials discussing citizenship, trivia
games, teas, old movies and other discussions and activities.
The weeklong celebration culminated with a resident/family
picnic that included live music and entertainment.
"We are grateful to our dedicated staff and to all the people in our community who volunteered to participate in the
events we scheduled for National Assisted Living Week," said
Administrator Kathie Deak. "Residents at Mt. Alverno have
the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities every
week and life doesn’t stop when you come here." Deak
explained that Mt. Alverno has an activities program, a library,
computer center, beauty shop, chapel and garden area. The
attitude of the staff at the center plays no small part in making sure that the residents are comfortable and at home.
During the family/resident picnic at the conclusion of
National Assisted Living Week, Deak welcomed the families
and surprised them with the fact that many of the staff members, on hand that Saturday and helping to make the event a
success, were giving up their usual day-off. "They love their
jobs," she said, "and they love our residents." The dedicated
staff members have also introduced many innovative ideas
and activities for their residents such as a daily afternoon high
tea and a Friday happy hour. For additional information

Raymond Hose Company to Dedicate New Firehouse
In 1896 thirty-five brave men formed the Raymond Hose
Company No. 2. The company was named after Mr. Raymond the
president of the Fabric Fire Hose Co. who gave them use of suitable
quarters in the old ladder factory building on Factory Street.
Conditions of the quarters were not good so in January of 1901 at
a cost of $1,600.00, new quarters were purchased on Howe Street.
On Jan. 29, 1901 the Village formally turned over the new building
to the Raymonds.
The Raymonds became known as the "Shanty Town Fire
Company" and also earned the nickname the "Red Coat Defenders"
because of the color of their first uniforms.
After 103 years, on Aug. 3 at their monthly meeting, a motion
was made to close the Fire Station at 7 Howe Street and relocate to
the new Fire Station at 200 West Street. The men proudly lowered
the flag and proceeded to march to their new quarters.
"The Red Coat Defenders" proudly invite the community to
their formal dedication and open house of the new firehouse at 200
West Street on Sun., Oct. 10 from 12 noon until 5 p.m. The dedication ceremony will commence at 1 p.m.

Hit the Trail at the Library
If you are a hiker, backpacker or just
love to wander the trails that crisscross the
Hudson Valley, the library is offering a program for you. On Wed., Oct. 13, at 7 p.m.
the Albert Wisner Public Library will present Hit the Trail: the Right Gear and Leave
No Trace Ethics with Tony Russo.
Tony Russo is a NYS licensed Guide
and a member of the NYS Outdoor Guides
Association. He is a member of the
Adirondack Mountain Club and the
Hudson River Trail Association, the New
York/New Jersey Trail Conference and also
the Leave-No-Trace organization and the
Catskill 3500 Club. Aside from a career as
an Environmental Consultant, Tony has
been hiking, canoeing, kayaking and backpacking for more that 30 years. Tony will
offer suggestions for choosing the right
gear for the outdoors and he will discuss
techniques that hikers can use to reduce
evidence of their presence on the trail to
retain the natural beauty. Seating is limited and registration is required at 986-1047.
This event is part of the One Town
One Book, the third annual town wide reading project sponsored by the three libraries
located in Warwick Township, Albert
Wisner Public Library, Florida Public
Library and Greenwood Lake Public
Library. The book this year is “A Walk in the
Woods: Rediscovering America on the
Appalachian Trail” by Bill Bryson.
Published in 1998, this is a personal memoir
of the author’s "thru-hike" of the
Appalachian Trail and a delightful, often
laugh out loud chronicle of the experiences
and people he meets along the trail. This
book was chosen in part because the
Appalachian Trail crosses through Warwick
Township and there is great enthusiasm for
the outdoors in the community.

Art of Improvisation’
heritage in "Jump for Joy - Jazz for Families". In this special program designed for children K-5 and their parents,
the group talks about and demonstrates their instruments,
their approaches to improvisation, and the basic building
blocks of music (harmony, rhythm and melody) in a fun,
interactive performance that will have everyone dancing in
their seats, if not the aisles.
In the evening performance of "The Art of
Improvisation" at 7:30 p.m., S3NY will explore the full
range of improvisation, from traditional approaches to the
multi-dimensional aspects of the present day. This program is abundantly illustrated through the performance of
original works by the members and others and is a fascinating and exhilarating look inside the minds (and fingers)
of these world-class performers.
The String Trio of New York (S3NY) returns to the
Warwick Valley Community Center on Sat., Oct. 9 with a
matinee performance of "Jump for Joy - Jazz for Families"
at 2 p.m. and "The Art of Improvisation" at 7:30 p.m.
These performances are a continuation of the Jazz
Connections - Sounds of the City lecture/performance
Hailed as "one of the world's greatest guitarists"
( and chosen as one of "66 great sixstringers" (Down Beat), James Emery is well-known both
in the jazz world, a world in which he lives, eats and
breathes; as well as in the community of Warwick where he
resides with his family. Somehow he always finds the time
to be involved in the community. Emery plays guitar and
composes for S3NY, and is joined by his colleagues Rob
Thomas (violin) and John Lindberg (bass). Together the
trio makes magic happen and plans to continue exposing
new audiences to the beauty and magic of jazz.
In a 2 p.m. performance, S3NY will share the rich jazz

Exciting Trips for Schervier Pavilion’s Program
What will they think of next? Each week, Jean
Trampler, RN, director of Schervier Pavilion’s adult day
health programs; Gerri "Gigi" Gates, CNA, and Marge
Grassfield, LPN, plan day trips and other events that will
not only be interesting and fun for their patients, but will
also have therapeutic value. The most recent excursions,
right on the heels of a successful trip to Monroe’s Museum
Village, included a day at Warwick’s annual Senior Picnic
and a visit to Goshen’s Harness Racing Museum and Hall
of Fame. The museum is adjacent to the historic track.
The tour guides at the museum divided the visitors
into two small groups so that everyone would have a front
row position. The museum’s displays, including one of the
famous sire Hambletonian, tell the history of the sport
enjoyed by harness fans throughout the world. The museum also houses a 3-D harness racing simulator, which
allowed some of the Day-At-A-Time visitors an opportunity to safely experience the excitement of driving in a harness race.
The Day-At-A-Time staff had prepared sandwiches for
everyone in advance and museum officials offered a conference room for the luncheon. After lunch, the visitors had an
opportunity to purchase souvenirs from the gift shop and
then everyone headed for the adjacent track to watch the
harness drivers exercise their horses. "We picked the perfect
day," said Jean Trampler, who reported that there were more
horses on the track that afternoon than usual.
Schervier Pavilion is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility
licensed by the New York State Department of Health and
accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation. For
those who choose to live at home, however, Schervier
Pavilion also offers Day-At-A-Time, an innovative medical
adult day care program that provides nursing services, medication administration, ongoing evaluations, and stimulating activities tailored to each individual's needs and abilities.
The Day-At-A-Time staff is actively planning more
trips for the remainder of the year. Some of the suggestions
being considered include apple picking at a local orchard
and a Christmas shopping trip. The staff has also scheduled
another luncheon at a local restaurant. Other suggestions
and invitations are welcomed. "We’re always on the move,"
smiled Director Jean Trampler. To learn more about DayAt-A-Time or to arrange a tour call 845-987-5767.

Spirits are Lifted High at
UAME Church Fundraiser
By Lon Tytell
On the first Sunday in February, 1906, the first worship
was held in the new building on McEwen Street for the Union
African Methodist Episcopal Church. Now almost a hundred
years later, the current building needs to be replaced.
Six months ago, Rev. Ronald L. Ivey, then the Pastor of
the U.A.M.E. Church in Warwick met with Sisters
Channabel Morris, Denise Smith, and Gloria WashingtonMines, with the idea of the Faith Project. Its purpose was
to hold an event called "The Gospel Explosion," which was
held on Oct. 2 at the Paramount Theater in Middletown.
All proceeds of this event benefited the building of a
new church at the current church's location. The current
parsonage attached to the Union A.M.E. Church would be
removed to incorporate the new building facility. The congregation which has increased to a tremendous number
over the years would have a modern facility in which to
worship. Room would be available for more educational
and social activities and the ministries sponsored by the
Union A.M.E. Church. Federal and state grants will be
applied for to help this worthy cause.
"The Gospel Explosion" was quite successful. The Rev.
Mashona Davis, present pastor of the Union A.M.E.
Church served as a late replacement for the Emcee of the
evening. She was accompanied by Rod Blackstone, a professional musician, who entertained the audience by
singing and playing keyboard.
Minister Jennifer Jordan demonstrated a great range
in voice as she had the audience standing up and clapping
to her music. She sang songs about the importance of worship and how the Savior has helped her. The Warwick
Valley Chorale performed a repertoire of spiritual songs. Their
harmonious voices filled the theater with a sense of awe.
The Immanuel Mime Ministry featured a young,
vibrant group of performers who acted out several songs in
mime with white painted faces and white gloves. A
comedic act by 19-year-old Sharael Nicole Moore dressed
as an elderly woman had the audience in stitches. The theater rocked with energy as Doris Leggert-Switzer and three
other performers dressed in white attire, sang songs about
miracles working, healing, and encouragement.
Revelation S. E. E. D. was the final act of the evening.
This group of women, who each served many years in Federal
prison, had received redemption while incarcerated. They
shared their experiences in testimonials and songs.

Wildcat’s Unable to Deliver
Homecoming Victory
Warwick Football Defeated by Kingston 42-13
By Gregory Sirico
The Warwick Wildcat’s were defeated by the Kingston
Tigers in the 2004 Homecoming game 42 – 13. The Cat’s
were unable to overcome early mistakes to defeat the
non–conference opponent. Tim Marion and Craig
Monahan led the defense with a combined total of 13 tack-
les. The Cat’s rallied back from two early scores to close the
gap to 14 – 13 in the first quarter but never got any closer.
The Wildcat’s will take their 2 – 2 record (1 – 0) in
league to Minisink Friday where they will challenge the
Minisink Warriors for a share of first place in the division.
The Cat’s have defeated Minisink seven out of their last
nine meetings. Kick– off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Since the NFL expanded to 16 games each season
and changed several rules to make it easier for offenses to
put points on the board, there has been an explosion of
scoring. But surprisingly, the record for points by one player in a single season – which was established back in 1960
– has not been seriously threatened. Any guesses who
holds the mark? The answer is Green Bay running back
Paul Hornung, who did double duty as the team’s kicker and
thus totaled 176 points in that 12-game season. A member
of the Hall of Fame, Hornung was also a Heisman Trophy
winner at Notre Dame in 1956.
Do you know which stadium is the oldest in the United
States? The answer isn’t Fenway or Wrigley or any of the
great old ballparks. It happens to be Harvard Stadium, which
opened in 1893. By the way, it took 101 years since then for
a Division 1-A football venue to be named after a woman.
Marshall University in Huntington, W.Va. opened the 2004
season in Joan C. Edwards Stadium, which was renamed for
the woman who donated more than $50 million to the school
and the community.
Wheaties cereal has been known for featuring famous
athletes on its boxes since the early 1950s. But the same
can’t be said of the well-recognized red and white KFC
buckets of chicken, which featured only the company’s
founder, Colonel Sanders. But that changed in the summer
of 2004, when for the first time a person other than the
Colonel was featured. Any idea which athlete replaced
Colonel Sanders on a limited edition of commemorative KFC
buckets? The answer is NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.
I bet you didn’t know...that being an independent agent

next year. Josh is a member of the Wildcat’s Weight Lifting

Boys Varsity Soccer Remains Undefeated
By John Van Pelt
The Warwick Boys Varsity Soccer Team improved to 60 with a 1-0 win over Section IX rival Monroe-Woodbury.
Monroe entered the match 5-1 with their only loss
coming against Section 1 power New Rochelle. The game
was played in soggy field conditions that affected the ‘Cats
ability to pass the ball through the midfield.
Due to the field conditions, Monroe was able to keep
Warwick in their end most of the first half. However, the
outstanding team defense, led by Goalie Bobby Blaskovich
and senior backs Jeff Paulik, Patrick O’Connor and Tim
Gillen as well as juniors Connor Franklin and Connor
Leech, did not allow Monroe to get a lead.
Late in the first half Adam Lloyd and Ryan Hallisey
combined on a free kick to give Warwick a 1-0 lead. In the
second half the ‘Cats kept the pressure on the Crusaders,
but did not get a second goal. Patrick Aiken, Austin Leech,
Mike Stubeck and Patrick Gallagher all had quality chances
at Monroe’s goal.
Warwick’s team defense continued to do a great job
and the ‘Cats remained undefeated. Also, the Wildcats have
not been scored on in their last four games. The Wildcats
also have moved up to eighth in the New York State Boys
soccer State rankings.
On Sat., Oct. 9, the ‘Cats will host Middletown under

Warwick Liberty Girls Excel on the Soccer Field
The Warwick Liberty Girls had a
great 2003-04 season! Their accomplishments included reaching the quarter
finals of the New York State Cup
Tournament. On their way they won two
thrilling matches on penalty kicks, only
to then lose to the eventual State Cup
champions from North Port.
The team is coached by Tom
Dempsey, with the help of assistant
coach, Kevin Allen, and trainer, Minor
del Rio. They practice three times a week
and play their league games on Sundays,
as well as participate in many regional
This fall the Liberty Girls are playing Division I U-12 in the East Hudson
Youth Soccer League and will again compete in the New York State Cup tournament. None of this would happen without the tremendous support of all those
involved with the team – the parents,
who are committed to the Liberty Girls
and the active schedule they keep; and the
Warwick Soccer Club board, volunteers,
and president, Dan Chester, who all help
Liberty with the fields and/or gym time.
Liberty Girls thank all their supporters and, of course, their trainer –
Minor del Rio – who spends much time
working with the team. The Warwick
Liberty team invites any girl interested in
playing a higher level of soccer and who
is an experienced player looking for a
good team to participate in a Liberty
practice or training session. Open tryouts take place throughout the year, but
there are few team openings so time is of
the essence.
