Lake Huntington News August 22

Have you ever been to a pig roast? In the last two weeks, I have been to two. The Knights of Columbus held one at Holy Cross Church on Sunday the 11. My brother is the Grand Knight, and he asked me to stop by and help him. He did not need me; the wives of the knights did a great job setting up and supplying the food. When I got there, I went over to him and he asked me to carry some pig down to the oven. I said, “OK,” and he gave me a metal tray with the head in it. Gross, gross, gross.  Read more

The last green drake

Boyd Corners Reservoir is the uppermost New York City reservoir on what was once the West Branch of the Croton River. Its outlet flows for barely a half mile before it empties into West Branch Reservoir.
