HAverstraw 9-ZOOO The Rockland Caunty Times, Haveratraw, N. Y., August 5, 1971 Page Five Garrison Visits Times With Crash \Sooner or later they all come to the newspaper office.\ This old saying in the newspaper business incudes under \they\ all the people who have unique, original and startling ideas. \They\ include people who have invented a new and per ­ fect cure for asthma (only no ­ body will listen), men who say if you twist lightning rods seven times to the left and six times to the right, the bolt will be harmless, and an old lady with long underwear who very guard ­ edly allows the Editor to look at an \Angel Gabriel Stone\ which has protected her all these years. \They\ now must include Richard Garrison of Clove ave. Over the years \Richie\, as we must call him with lese majes- te, has been a caller at the office of this newspaper. Never did he make such a call as last Thursday evening. Richie came in the office at 9:30 or so. How he happened to find Ed Athearn, the linotype operator, George Oakley at a press and Editor William J. McCabe working in a corner on a light table on a Thursday night was pure coincidence. Gary Zeh and John Torpey were just social callers. As Richie left, his azimuth went haywire. On the news ­ paper front porch he somehow backed into a window. Six by nine feet of plate glass shat ­ tered and fell all around him, as a radiator inside kept him from going all the way into the building. He was assisted to his feet by the astounded Oakley, and within seconds a large piece of plate glass the width of the window came crashing down. It looked like a guillotine with the victim removed. Despite the terrific crash, an incredible noise. Richie did not seem stunned, and walked up to the Bank Corner and ambled north on Broadway. Maybe the newspaper will not receive any more visits from Richie. His comments were of ­ ten lucid, sometimes startling, but never dull, except when he recited poems learned in his youth. But it Congressman Dow ever wants to hear an analysis of his career and actions from Grandview to Georgetown, Richie ’ s his man. Somehow the newspaper of­ fice may have to get along without an occasional visit from Richie with a quotation from politics or literature. Last Thursday he seemed sort of low on quotations. In the office he repeated only, “ He writes, I read.\ And these were the words he used when village police led him into their sanc ­ tuary some time after his de ­ parture from the scene of his crashing exit. Passenger Goes Through Windshield In a serious accident Friday afternoon on Railroad ave.. West Haverstraw, Carol Van Pelt of 14 Spring st.. Stony Point, was thrown through the windshield of a car and sus ­ tained cuts, bruises and other injuries. She was taken to Ny- ack Hospital in the Haverstraw ambulance. The accident, which was han ­ dled by the Haverstraw Town Police, occurred when the car in which the injured woman was a passenger struck a utility pole. The driver was Roberta Laracuente of the Thiells-Mt. Ivy rd., Pomona. At about the same time, an ­ other accident happened on Suffern lane when cars driven by Marie Licare of Woodlake dr., and Florence Keegan of Pine dr., both of Thiells, collid ­ ed. Helen Consiglio of Wood- lake dr. was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital for treat ­ ment. State Troopers from Stony Point were called to take charge of the emergency. Summer Crisis In Blood Supply Summertime means vacations and fun for most people, but to Good Samaritan Hospital's Blood Bank, it is a time of ac ­ celeration and stress. The in ­ creased demand for blood is due mainly to the large volume of highway' traffic accidents Also, many of the hospital ’ s reg ular blood donors are vacation ing in other parts of the coun try and are not available. Daniel Weiss, M.D., director of the Hospital ’ s Laboratpry, issued a community-wide plea today for blood donors. Good Samaritan Hospital donor hours are every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. or by appointment in the air conditioned Laboratory on the ground floor of the new Sis­ ter Miriam Thomas Pavilion. Flood Cmitrol' Continued from Page 1 the new channel directly Into the river. To Dredge 28,000 Yards About 28,000 cubic yards of material will be dredged from the creek bed and adjacent areas to create the new chan ­ nel. This material will be spread on the outlying areas to alleviate flooding conditions and to im ­ prove drainage in the creek basin. This work is partly based on the Minisceongo Creek flood alleviation study as revised in August of 1969. The new creek location will lie between the Bowline Point power plants and the intake structure where cooling water tor the condensers will be drawn from Bowline Pond. The power company has already constructed the bridge which will span the relocated creek. The bridge is visible from Broadway, and lies to the west of the fuel storage tanks which are now nearing completion. State Bankers Elect Payne John H. Payne jr.

Power Co. Reports Lower Net Income Orange and Rockland Utili ­ ties, Inc., reported net income for the first six months of 1971 of $4,655,224, or $.71 per common share, calculated on a greater number of shares outstanding for the period, compared with $5,417,850, or $.95 per common share, for the corresponding period in 1970. Charles H. Tenney II, Board Chairman, said that the de ­ crease in net income and earn ­ ings per common share reflect ­ ed two significant items: the inclusion of non-recurring ac ­ crued revenues in the 1970 earn ­ ings and the continuing need for significant rate relief in a period of inflation. A record electric system peak hourly load of 523,600 kilowatts was set on July 1, exceeding by 10 percent last year ’ s peak of 476,100 kilowatts set on Sept. 23. The Company also estab ­ lished an all-time Z4-hour dally system output of 9,639,000 kilo ­ watt hours on July 1, an in ­ crease of 10 percent over last year ’ s record. New Sewage Plant For West Point The U.S. Army will build a new secondary sewage treat ­ ment plant at the U. S. Mili­ tary Academy at West Point, according to Congressman John G. Dow. Army officials told Mr. Dow that a $3,648,500 contract was awarded to Vicon Construction Co. of Fairfield, N. J. for the new treatment facility. \This is a project I started to work on when I first came to Congress,\ Dow said. \The new facility will be a major boost to continuing efforts to clean up the Hudson River. \Hopefully it will set the ex ­ ample for communities and in dustrles up and down the river, ’ TV WILL OPEN MONDAY Haverstraw TV, Route 202.

Camp Redwoods East, Luxury Home Colony Opens on Wooded Pomona Hillside Palis Uniet Tsiaie Parkv) 2 1 X ------- ^.^-■.'Wa v REDWOODS EAST, POMONA Redwoods East, one of the most luxurious and distinctive one family home communities in Rockland County opened this week. Developed by Kanaje Corpor ­ ation of Spring Valley, Red ­ woods East is situated in Po ­ mona, adjacent to Redwoods, an earlier contemporary styled community. Redwoods East will contain 74 homes on 70 acres of rolling, heavily wooded land. Home prices begin at $48,500. The earlier Redwoods has been one of the most admired, I highly acclaimed suburban communities since its comple- ttion in 1969. j \The homes in Redwoods, which were priced at $40,000 when they were put on the market two years ago, have been resold by their original owners, in some instances, for between $65,000 and $70,000, ” according to Samuel Schechter, President of Kanaje Corp. The Redwoods community re ­ ceived national attention from magazines and architectural publications because of its clean lined contemporary dwellings, many of them built around land ­ scaped atriums. The general ef ­ fect of the community is of a luxury area in northern Cali­ fornia. All the homes in Redwoods East are sited on property left virtually intact by the builder. Kanaje, as with most of its housing projects, is finishing the houses in natural wood — either cedar or redwood facades — so they blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape.
