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.
