The Milk Man is Returning, Will the Milk Train Return Too?

Image

King Brothers Dairy in upstate New York, and others too, have brought the “Milk Man” back. No he doesn’t have an old-fashioned wagon pulled by “Old Dobbin”. Nor does he even have a “DIVCO”. Instead he has a modern truck equipped with GPS. The Albany Times-Union had a great article on the return of the milk man.

Now that the Milk Man is returning, how about bringing back the Milk Train? No, I am not advocating bringing back the old Boston & Maine tracks to Schuylerville (where the dairy is located). I want to see these “long haul” milk trucks off the road for the sake of our ecology. No, I don’t have a perfect solution, but if you have any ideas, respond to our comments.

Our Utica Comets Get Another Shootout Win!

Image

The Utica Comets have a long road to get that Calder Cup pictured above, but they are working hard to get there.

The Comets came up with another unlikely victory Saturday, storming back from an early 4-0 deficit, getting a big relief effort from Joe Cannata in goal, and surprising the Binghamton Senators with a 6-5 American Hockey League shootout victory at Broome County Arena.

It was the fourth straight win for the Comets – and third straight come-from-behind shootout victory – and eighth in their last 11 games as they reached .500 for the first time this season at 26-26-3-4. They are still seven points out of eighth place and the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
