Lissa Harris reports that an unsolved local mystery made national television on Feb. 26, when "The Colbert Report" aired a segment about a seven-foot-tall Gumby statue stolen from a Saugerties backyard last fall. Made by local sculptor Ze'ev Willy Neumann, "The Saugerties Gumby" in the backyard of Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras was linked to other missing backyard Gumbys in Grand Junction, Colorado and Arden, Delaware. The Saugerties couple now has a new Gumby with Pokey sidekick, made by Neumann and exhibited at Saugerties' First Friday celebration in February. Read the full story in The Watershed Post.
