LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - MAY 28, 2023 by Lynne Belluscio Calvin Keeney of LeRoy was the first person to develop a “stringless” bean. Everyone has heard of “string” beans, but the beans that we eat today are really “stringless” beans. Keeney began his work in the 1870s. He would walk through the bean fields and select beans that didn’t have as many strings. He would save the seeds from those plants, and then plant them in a small field in the middle of a corn field. Then he would select beans from those plants, looking for beans with fewer strings, and again repeat the process. After a while he was able to grow a stringless bean. Some of the beans were green beans and others were yellow beans. Ultimately, he developed seventeen different kinds of stringless beans which are listed in the book “Beans of New York” published by Cornell University. One of the most popular Keeney beans was the yellow pencil pod black wax. The beans were long and yellow, like a pencil, and the seeds inside were black and shiny. Keeney’s beans were sold by the Burpee Seed Company. Today the beans are considered an heirloom variety, and are still available. Beans cannot be planted until after the danger of frost is past and the ground is warm, which is usually after Memorial Day. So, if you would like to plant some of Keeney’s yellow pencil pod black wax beans, you can pick up seeds at the Woodward Memorial Library, or at the Town Hall at 48 Main Street, or the Village Hall at 3 West Main Street. Each packet has four or five seeds which you can plant directly in the ground. Or if you would like a small peat pot to start your seeds, there are some little kits that include a peat pot and some seeds. Make sure your seeds don’t dry out and plant them in a nice sunny place. After a few weeks, you will have some nice beans to eat. They are great cooked and served with a little salt and butter. When you pick up your seeds, there will be a couple of recipes that you can use. Calvin Keeney was very determined in spite of disaster. The building where he kept all his seeds, burned, and he had to start over collecting seeds. He also discovered that there was a blight that affected bean plants, and instead of growing his seeds here in LeRoy, he had to move the bean facility to Bozeman, Montana. Keeney joined with other seed growers and in 1927 formed ASGRO.– the Associated Seed Growers. Calvin Keeney lived in LeRoy at 13 West Main Street. He died in 1930 and is buried in Machpelah Cemetery. It has been tradition for the past couple of years, to plant beans in the planter next to the Keeney gravestone. Recipes for Yellow Beans Grandma’s Dill Beans from Liz Belina, of Seed Savers’ Exchange Ingredients 4 cups fresh yellow beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces 2 heads of fresh dill at the seed state Water to just less than to cover beans in pan 2 tablespoons flour, approximately 2 tablespoons butter, approximately ¼ cup white vinegar Salt and pepper to taste Directions Cook dill heads and beans in water until they are softened; do not drain. Make a roux by melting the butter in a small frypan. Add flour to the melted butter, stir mixture while toasting it to a light brown and whisk in vinegar; Remove the dill heads from the beans. Add small amounts of bean water to paste and cook until flour has thickened. Add paste to beans. This old family recipe has been passed down without being written down. It was made often in the summer to go along with panfish that Grandma would catch in the pond. Since she was a first-generation Bohemian, it is possible that this recipe comes from that region. Lemon Garlic Yellow Beans Ingredients 1 lb. fresh stringless beans, yellow or green, trimmed 2 tablespoons butter 3 garlic cloves, minced Juice of ½ lemon and lemon slices Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon of hot sauce ½ cup of vegetable stock Crushed red chili pepper flakes, optional ½ cup fresh chopped parsley 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves Parmesan shavings Directions Arrange beans in microwave safe dish with ½ cup of water. Cook in the microwave for 8 to 10 minutes until almost done. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add parsley, thyme, and garlic, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, and precooked beans and cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring regularly until cooked to your liking. Add second tablespoon of butter and stir until melted to coat the beans; add lemon juice and rest of ingredients and reduce the sauce for a couple of minutes serve with parmesan shavings and fresh lemon slices.

LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - MAY 28, 2023 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report for 2022 Covington Water District #2 584 Perry Road, Pavilion NY 14525 (Public Water Supply ID# NY6000622) INTRODUCTION To comply with State regulations, Covington Water District #2 annually issues a report describing the quality of your drinking water. The purpose of this report is to raise your understanding of drinking water and awareness of the need to protect our drinking water sources. This report provides an overview of last year's water quality. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to State standards. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your drinking water, please contact Jerry Davis, Town Supervisor, or Josh Gardner, Water System Operator, at (585) 584-8113. We want you to be informed about your drinking water. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled Town board meetings. The meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall, 584 Perry Road, Pavilion NY 14525. WHERE DOES OUR WATER COME FROM? In general, the sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activities. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: microbial contaminants; inorganic contaminants; pesticides and herbicides; organic chemical contaminants; and radioactive contaminants. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the State and the EPA prescribe regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The State Health Department's and the FDA's regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Our water is provided by the Town of York Water District (PWS ID# 2501027) which purchases water from Geneseo Village Water Supply (PWS ID #2501017). You are able to read through the Village of Geneseo 2022 Annual Report by accessing their website, https://geneseony.org/village/index.asR#+ or you may request a paper copy from our office. Our water system serves approximately 255 people through 82 house connections and three businesses. As the State regulations require, the Village of Geneseo routinely tests your drinking water for numerous contaminants. These contaminants include: total coliform, turbidity, inorganic compounds, nitrate, nitrite, lead and copper, volatile organic compounds, total trihalomethanes, and synthetic organic compounds. A listing of detected contaminants can be found within the Geneseo Report. In addition, the state and Wyoming County Public Health Department requires us to perform additional total coliform testing, and other sampling. As you can see by the cable on the reverse, our system had no violations. We have learned through our testing that some contaminants have been detected; however, these contaminants were detected below the level allowed by the State. Any questions regarding the water system, use of hydrants, fees for new hook-ups, seasonal turn-offs, etc., can be directed to the Town Hall or to the Water System Operator. If there are any changes in billing names, addresses or contact information, please send the information to the Town Hall, 584 Perry Road, Pavilion NY 14525. In November, one positive coliform sample triggered three samples which were also positive. An assessment was performed to determine the cause. Extensive flushing of the water mains was performed to increase chlorine residual in the water mains, and two more samples were collected which were acceptable. One positive in December required repeat sampling, four additional samples were taken; including one from the original location. All December follow-up samples were absent of Total Coliform, no E. coli were detected; no additional action required. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, waterborne pathogens may be present or that a potential pathway exists through which contamination may enter the drinking water distribution system. It is believed that sampling taps in homes may have had residual contamination prior to or as a result of the connection process. Flushing the mains increased the residual in the system, which helps in disinfecting the home's plumbing, and samples taken in the first four months of 2023 have all been good.

COM OR CALL (585)768-2201! by Greg “Porp” Rogers Happy Memorial Day to all. Please take time to remember our countries real hero’s the veterans. While some made the ultimate sacrifice, for those we pray for. For the Veterans still with us lets go out our way to thank the ones still with us. America is still the best place in the world to live and these people are the reason why. The board recently received Gerry Aron’s letter of resignation from the sewer board. Gerry served for 37 years and as Chairman for last couple years. His leadership along with the others on the sewer board have put our waste water treatment plant and all that goes with that, in the best position we have seen in a long time. Thank you Gerry for your dedication and service. Steve Carroll has reached out to express the recent process and update our renovation being in good shape and are looking for good to the timeline. The DPW is beginning with its summer projects, number one being making the deadline on the splash park, and a lot of street work. We have seen the completion of the side walk on the corner of Main and Mill. You will see more police department bike patrols around the village, it seems to be sending a good message. Enjoy your holiday and thank a vet. “If you have to win a campaign by dividing people, you’re not going to be able to govern them. You won’t be able to unite them later” Barack Obama Mayor's Corner (Cont.) Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The Town of Covington is responsible for providing high quality drinking water and removing lead pipes, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components in your home. You share the responsibility for protecting yourself and your family from the lead in your home plumbing. You can take responsibility by identifying and removing lead materials within your home plumbing and taking steps to reduce your family's risk. Before drinking tap water, flush your pipes for several minutes by running your tap, taking a shower, doing laundry or a load of dishes. You can also use a filter certified by an American National Standards Institute accredited certifier to reduce lead in drinking water. If you are concerned about lead in your water and wish to have your water tested, contact [Water Supply Name and Contact Information]. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available at www.epa. gov/safewater/lead. Our system does not have any lead in the water mains, or in lines going into your home.
