New employee at Hudson Valley Community College looking to buy a home in the HVCC/Troy area. If you know of anything, please let me know as I’m currently living in an apartment.

Two to three bedrooms with 1-1/2 baths minimally. Would like to be either right in downtown Troy near Washington Park or somewhere in a nice community with a yard (not on a busy street). Love to walk everywhere with my dog!

Thanks,
Bill Reuter

On Saturday, July 29 at 10 a.m., the Lansingburgh Historical Society (LHS) celebrates Herman Melville’s 198th Birthday. The annual celebration takes place at the Melville House, which is located at 2 114th St. in Lansingburgh.

The event features a 10:30 a.m. lecture by Mary K. Bercaw Edwards, Ph.D., author and noted Melville authority, who is an associate professor at the University of Connecticut. She will present, “An Alchemist of Words: Melville’s Use of Sources.” In addition to her academic work, Dr. Bercaw Edwards is a licensed US Coast Guard Master of Near-Coastal Auxiliary Sail Vessels of not more than 100 tons. She circumnavigated the globe aboard the 38-foot ketch, “Natasha,” 1971-1975.

Light refreshments and birthday cake are served following the lecture. The Melville House’s third floor museum and second floor apartment are open to tour. Herman penned his first two novels in the apartment’s front bedroom.

A donation of $5 for members and $6 for not-yet-members, is appreciated and will help the LHS to provide more education and preservation activities.

My neighbor has started a summer remodeling project, and sadly, these lamps do not blend in with the new design scheme. They are crystal/glass with a gold-plated base. There are a few small marks on one of the bases, but these are not very noticeable.

She just purchased new lamp shades for them; however they don’t appear to be quite the right size. Both lamps are in excellent condition. Selling the set for $50 (cash only). I can transport the lamps here to campus for the buyer. Contact me at t.hicks@hvcc.edu.
