Flash flood watch remains in effect from 2 AM Saturday through Saturday afternoon.

The flash flood watch continues for portions of Southern Connecticut, Northeast New Jersey, and Southeast New York

A slow moving frontal system will approach the region tonight into Saturday. Heavy rain will become likely late tonight through Saturday morning. Total rainfall amounts will be around 1 inch with locally higher amounts possible. Excessive runoff will be possible, which would lead to flooding of urban and poor drainage areas. In addition, smaller rivers and streams could overflow their banks.

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.

GREEN CHIMNEYS CO-FOUNDER MYRA MATTES ROSS PASSES AT 88 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/593-green-chimneys-co-founder-myra-mattes-ross-passes-at-88593-green-chimneys-co-founder-myra-mattes-ross-passes-at-88 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/593-green-chimneys-co-founder-myra-mattes-ross-passes-at-88593-green-chimneys-co-founder-myra-mattes-ross-passes-at-88

Nonprofit to carry her legacy of love and support for children with special needs

The Green Chimneys community has lost another of its most admired members. Myra Mattes Ross, co-founder and beloved matriarch of Green Chimneys, died peacefully at the home of her daughter in Las Vegas, NV at the age 88.  

Mrs. Ross led the renowned education and human services organization with husband Dr. Samuel B. Ross, Jr., who passed in 2018. Following their marriage in 1954, she joined, and helped to grow, the vision for a unique school in a farm setting. Together they developed a most innovative model for providing education, residential treatment, and animal-assisted and nature-based therapeutic programs for children with special needs.

Born in the Bronx in 1930 to a hatter and his wife, young Myra moved to Danbury at the age of 6, where she attended local public schools. She was later admitted to Danbury State College (now Western Connecticut State University) where she earned a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education. She continued her studies in 1968 when she returned to WCSU and graduated with an M.S. in Education with a concentration in Psychology. She became a school teacher and taught in Norwalk and Danbury.

For six decades Ross served as Clinical Coordinator and Director of Admissions at Green Chimneys School and Children's Services. Her extensive experience working within residential treatment, group homes, special education, and other child and youth services became invaluable and she worked tirelessly alongside her husband to improve the lives of hundreds of children and families.

In addition to her work at Green Chimneys, Ross was a member of the Putnam Community Service Network and a charter member of the Rotary Club of Patterson, NY. She belonged to many professional organizations and spoke extensively at conferences on childcare, education, assessment and documentation as well as on the interaction of humans and animals. She also served as Chair of the Temple Beth Elohim Board of Education for many years.

Together, the Rosses received numerous honors and awards for their work: the Delta Society Distinguished Service Award for exceptionally significant contributors to our understanding of the relationships between people and animals; the International Association of Human/Animal Interaction Organization Lifetime Achievement Award; the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; and the American Humane Education Society George T. Angell Humanitarian Award. She was also the recipient of a Centennial Award for Excellence at Western Connecticut State University.

Myra Ross proudly raised her family on the grounds of Green Chimneys with her children attending the school and working side by side with their parents. She was the mother of David (deceased 1986), Donald, and Lisa who both live in Nevada; mother-in-law to Mary; and the proud grandmother of Samantha Julia and Sara Adele.

Memorial Details: A Celebration of Life will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. on the main campus of Green Chimneys Children’s Services at 400 Doansburg Road, Brewster, NY.

Don't Let a Puppy Scam Dampen Your Spring https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/publicsafety/587-don-t-let-a-puppy-scam-dampen-your-spring587-don-t-let-a-puppy-scam-dampen-your-spring https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/publicsafety/587-don-t-let-a-puppy-scam-dampen-your-spring587-don-t-let-a-puppy-scam-dampen-your-spring

BBB warns about the rise in puppy scam reports

As temperatures begin to warm up many consumers find it a good time to add a new pet to their family. BBB Serving Connecticut (BBB) urges consumers to treat the decision to get a puppy as seriously as you would any other major purchase.

There are a number of things to keep in mind before purchasing a new puppy like buying food, medical costs, having enough time to train them and providing enough space for them to live and play in. Before rescuing or purchasing a dog make sure you're fully ready for your new friend and also make sure that you're not walking into a scam.

The internet may be the most convenient way to purchase some items, but it's not always the best way to purchase a pet. According to a 2018 study, experts say that a shocking 80% of sponsored advertisements about pets may be fake.

Since January 2019, Connecticut consumers claim to have lost nearly $6,000 in online puppy scams via BBB Scam Tracker. All types of scams are terrible but puppy scams can be especially hurtful since consumers often become emotionally invested in adding a new family member to their household.

BBB Serving Connecticut is sharing some tips to help consumers avoid falling for a puppy scam.

Don't buy a pet without seeing it in person. Do an internet search of the picture of the pet you are looking to purchase. If the same picture appears on multiple websites, you may be dealing with a scam.

Never pay a stranger through a money order, Western Union or Moneygram. Always use a credit card in case you need to dispute the charges. If the seller demands payment through other methods that you don't feel comfortable with, you may want to find another seller.

Make sure prices make sense. Research prices for the breed you are interested in adopting. If someone is advertising a purebred dog for free or at a deep discount, it could be a scam.

Research the seller and obtain references. Visit www.bbb.org  to check the reputation of an online seller or breeder. Ask he breeder for references and contact people who have bought puppies from them in the past.

Consider adopting or buying locally. Visit your local shelter and see if rescuing a dog may be right for you. When you purchase an animal from out-of-state without seeing it first, there is no way to know how healthy or young it is, or even if the pet exists at all.
