Just another day in Carmel, New York, right? We’re sure many will recognize this intersection, Fair Street and Gleneida Avenue or Route 52 or Smadbeck Avenue, depends who you ask and how long they’ve been in town. Big goings on in the center of town, a four car accident. Standing on the left is Deputy Vincent Gugliuzza, PC-23 and if you knew Vinny or Vince, you can tell what he was thinking at this time, I wish I took today off. On the far left is the Putnam County Courier’s very own, Buzz Burr. Buzz was the Eric Gross of the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s, a great guy and friend of the Sheriff’s Office. Check out the cars, the bell-bottoms, oh, and the hair. See anyone you know? ca 1974 #throwbackthursday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #carmelny
