• Important Info About Your Smoke Detectors

A story for you: My step-daughter and family have been staying at our home as they had a fire in their house the other night. They were just about to go to bed when she saw smoke coming out of the heatilators that are built into the fireplace. Seems whoever built the fireplace...which may have been generations ago...allowed part of the heatilator riser to be in contact with wood. That wood finally dried out/charcoaled itself to the point where it burst into flame.

Most of the damage is from smoke, but their whole living room wall was torn out by the firefolk.

Here's the point: Their smoke detectors did not go off...this despite having just replaced the batteries and tested the beeper. The fire responders said that older fire detectors have a life of only about 6 years, and that has nothing to do with the batteries or the beeper. Newer ones, they say, last about 8-10 years. So, obviously, it's a good idea to review the status of your fire detectors...beyond the beeper.

And…apparently CO detectors have an even shorter service life.

• The Hudson River’s Striped Bass

“Striped bass are found throughout much of the Eastern Seaboard and breed in several river systems, but the majority of local stripers are a gift of the Hudson River. These fish swim past New York City, following the harbor upstream to spawn in less saline waters. Adult females lay thousands of eggs annually, which float in the tides, and eventually develop into juvenile bass, which thrive in the briny complexities of the lower Hudson...

“Young-of-the-year bass begin to move to the saltier, but still relatively sheltered, waters of the western Long Island Sound and the South Shore in the early autumn along with other species of Hudson-spawned fish….”
