Sandy, my brother in law gave me the idea of starting the Millbrook Times. He was a famous journalist and died this past Saturday after an long illness. He loved the Hudson Valley and was in the Millbrook Diner in 1963 when he saw people running down the street. President Kennedy had been shot. There were no open phone lines to CBS so Sandy got in a car and went immediately to CBS headquarters in New York where he was with Walter Cronkite covering the story.
He started the boy’s weekend in Clove Valley in 1992. We had our 22nd reunion several weeks ago. It was the first one Sandy missed.
