Berne-Knox-Westerlo

BERNE — The elongated winter season already pushed back the start of the Section 2 baseball season by two weeks, and now the recent spell of rain has created more of a log-jam in the schedule.

WESTERLO — Joseph W. Rapp, a loving and dedicated family man who liked to laugh, died on April 21, 2014, surrounded by his wife and family, after a courageous battle with lung disease. He was 82.

Mr. Rapp was born in South Berne on Aug. 4, 1931, the son of the late William Rapp and Anna Mayrhofer Rapp.

March 31, was still winter. The sidewalks were very icy and we received two-inches of snow during the night.

My sister, Pat Sykala, picked up her daughter, Sondra Weingand, in Voorheesville and then me and we drove to Starkville to visit our sister-in-law, Linda Richardson.

Monday, March 24, was a cold 9-degree above day. But, it was my Zoey day and everything was warm and cozy.

My loving granddaughter, Kassi Rae Neal, came over and had lunch with us. She carried Zoey around like an airplane and Zoey giggled loudly.

BERNE – The Berne-Knox-Westerlo Elementary School will hold an orientation on March 26 at 6 p.m. for the parents of incoming kindergartners.

If you have a child that turns 5 on or before Dec. 1, 2014 and have not yet received a packet in the mail, please call Mrs. Farnam at 872-2030. 

A deal has been made between the Schoburg varsity football team and Berne-Knox-Westerlo to allow BKW students to join Schoburg for 2014.

 HILLTOWNS — The BKW Little League president says he was thrilled as a kid at Christmas to have the ValleyCats reclaim a field ravaged by tropical storms in 2011. He’s looking for volunteers to help.

If your child lives in the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School District and will be attending a non-public school for the 2014-15 school year and you wish to apply for school district transportation, you must submit a written request to the superintendent’s office by April 1.

On Monday, March 3, baby Zoey arrived at 7:30 a.m. for our day together. She loves my dogs. They are four year-old, Ginger and 15-month-old Reba. She could watch them all day. If I let them out to romp in the snow and sit by the window with Her, she is in her glory and could sit and watch for hours.

To the Editor:

With temperatures above freezing for the first time in months, it's almost time for spring-cleaning.

Keep in mind that one man's trash is another man's treasure — something that is garbage to  your family could be exactly what another family needs.
