Three residents in their 70s drown in two Delaware County incidents

--- —

Three local residents have drowned in two incidents in Delaware County, according to state police, who warned about dangers of weakened ice on ponds and lakes after warmer temperatures.


Marvin Taub, 74, of Oneonta, who had gone for a walk Monday with two small dogs, died at Pine Lake in Davenport, according to state police at Oneonta.


Separately, Ira Landess, 74, and his wife, Nancy Klinger-Landess, 71, died after apparently trying to rescue their dog who fell through ice on a pond behind their Harpersfield town home on Tuesday, troopers said.


Bodies of the three drowning victims were recovered after search efforts, troopers said.


Though weather officials forecast a storm starting tonight, some warmer temperatures have produced rain and melted snowpack in recent weeks.

  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
