  • St. Andrew's to begin Advent observation

    St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Harriman, will begin observing Advent on Nov. 28.

    The congregation will join a large number of Christians — including Methodists, Lutherans, Orthodox, Roman Catholics and Episcopal/Anglicans — in observing the beginning of the church year with the season of Advent.

    The word Advent comes from the Latin “adventus,” which means coming.

  • Kingston waterfowl getting healthier handouts

    Forget the bread. Ducks and geese on the Kingston waterfront are getting gourmet handouts these days, thanks to a series of new vending machines.

    The machines, installed about a month ago, can be found in high-traffic areas for both the birds and people: two are at City Park, two are at 58 Landing and one is behind Bethel Presbyterian Church.

    For 25 cents, the red-fronted machines will dispense a handful of nutritious pellets.
