Town Board, December 17, 2015

I assumed that the Board would acknowledge that this was the last meeting of the Town Board for George Keeler and Jim Jackson. Jim was physically absent and there was no recognition of George’s terms of service to the town — he had already been presented with a plaque at the November meeting.

I want to give a shout out of thanks to George. He publicly acknowledged Pine Plains Views and helped with its coverage of the community. For example, one evening George contacted me from the funeral home to see if I would film a funeral the next day to honor a very deserving local son and veteran. It turned out to be Dave Cookingham.

Planning Board, December 9, 2015

I did some experiments with various video formats on this meeting and, quite honestly, I don’t like the ones I tried!  But, hey, it was an experiment and how else are you going to learn? I’m going back to the other way…

Oh, and remind me to adjust the blinds next time.  They caused a moiré effect that I could not see through the viewfinder.
