CELEBRATE DAIRY: JUNE IS DAIRY MONTH

Senator Patty Ritchie, chair of the State Senate's Agriculture Committee, is pictured with New York's 51st Dairy Princess, Casey Porter, of Adams Center, during the annual Dairy Parade, held June 6 in downtown Watertown . The 17-year-old, who grew up on a dairy farm and plans to study agriculture this fall at Cornell, was chosen over 24 other contestants at the Coronation event held in Liverpool in February.

Dairy is the centerpiece of New York's $5.7 billion agriculture industry, and New York currently ranks third in the US in dairy production, with 5427 dairy farms--and young farmers, like Casey, will help lead the indutry's growth into the future, Senator Ritchie said.

OGDENSBURG'S BLUE DEVILS ARE OFF TO THE FINAL FOUR!

I was so pleased to be on hand for the OFA Blue Devils victory in the Class B regional contest tonight. Coach Tom Pinkerton's boys really shined behind stellar pitching by Breton LaRose and a clutch, 9th inning 2-run homer by Andrew Cole!
Now it's off to Binghamton for Saturday's semifinal. Sadly, the news wasn't as great for two other local teams, but I know they played their hearts out. Congrats to all on a great season!
