ALTAMONT — Lisa Seypura has knit a pair of mittens that, when the wearer puts her hands side by side, a ewe is formed, with the head on one mitten and the tail on the other.
The ribbed cuffs of the mittens are green grass on which the sheep can stand and graze.

GUILDERLAND — Vendor and crafters are wanted for the second annual fair to be held by the Westmere Fire Department Ladies’ Auxiliary on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the firehouse at 1741 Western Avenue.
The rides offer thrills while the animals make calming connections.
An average of 26 dogs per year are rescued and adopted through the organization, which operates solely on donations.
Jean Cataldo, the town clerk, who is also a Democrat, said there is a minimum requirement of 10 posted notifications for a caucus.
The judging process at the fair can seem opaque, but it actually encourages entrants to do a job well.
