MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Carmel Highway Superintendent Mike Simone is one proud grandpa. Not only has he welcomed a new granddaughter to the family—Sophia Rae Simone was the first baby born in Putnam County in 2017.

Mike’s son, Matt Simone, said he was hoping for a New Year’s Day baby and the new dad got his wish.

The Simones, who reside in Poughquag, in Dutchess County, greeted 2017 with the birth of their first child.

“This is a perfect way to start the New Year,” Amanda Simone said, while kissing her baby girl’s cheeks.

The Psychic Wives Network

After almost 25 years of marriage, my husband and I have finally figured out why sometimes we have trouble communicating: He can’t read my mind.

I know. I was shocked, too. But there it was. And the sad fact was, I was enlightened over a bag of garbage.
