Five brothers build a family wrestling tradition

Five brothers build a family wrestling tradition

The five wrestling Ross brothers have tried other sports, but nothing else has satisfied or bonded them as wrestling has. Competing for Onteora High School at the February 23-24 New York State Wrestling Championships in Albany, Nathan, a junior, took sixth place in his weight class of 152 pounds, and Nicholas, a sophomore, placed third in the 138-pound weight class.

Ann Byer’s Shandaken

Ann Byer’s Shandaken

When I run into Ann Byer, usually outside the Phoenicia post office or the bank, she reels off a list of readings, concerts, films, benefits, or political events she’s been to or is thinking of going to. Usually I’m unaware of most of them, although I’m on Facebook and email, while Ann does not touch computers. When asked how she knows about everything going on in Shandaken and Woodstock, she replies, “I talk to people.”
