Remember the 300-pound robot security guard that hit and rolled over a toddler in California last year[1]? Well, the bot or rather, the same type of bot got a taste of its own medicine last week, after an drunk dude knocked it to the ground. Jason Sylvain, a 41-year-old man, was arrested for attacking the robot, which was patrolling a parking lot in Mountain View, California, ABC7 News reports[2].

The robot, built by a company called Knightscope, clocks in at five feet tall, and spins and occasionally whistles, ABC7 News also reports. I think this is a pretty pathetic incident because it shows how spineless the drunk guys in Silicon Valley really are, because they attack a victim who doesn t even have any arms, one Mountain View resident told them of the incident. Sylvain is up against charges of both prowling and being drunk in public.

Ursula Gerhard, one-time resident of Massena for more than 30 years and later Waddington, NY, passed away peacefully December 17, 2016 in Manchester, New Hampshire. She was 92 years old. Born October 10, 1924, and growing up in Germany Ursula immigrated to Toronto, Canada with her husband Ernst K. Gerhard and their two daughters in 1955 and subsequently relocated to Massena, New York in 1963. During her time in Massena, Ursula worked as a substitute teacher, first at the Jefferson Middle School and then at the Madison Middle School. She demonstrated her athletic ability at Massena Central School by conducting a gymnastic routine on the parallel bars. Fresh air and exercise were important elements in Ursula s life and as a result she became active with the Clarkson Women s Hiking Group in Potsdam. They made many trips to her favorite mountains, the Adirondacks as they reminded her of the Alps. During the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid Ursula worked as a Pinkerton Security Guard at the entrance to the Olympic Village. It was here that she naturally befriended competing Athletes including Eric Heiden and several figure skaters. She returned to Massena with the US Hockey Team s autographed hockey sticks. It was the year they won the Gold Medal.

Several years after her husband, Ernst passed away, Ursula decided to return to Germany to be with friends and relatives. She was generous with her time and held poetry and story readings for the elderly and also for elementary school children. She enjoyed traveling throughout Europe and the Middle East visiting family, historic sites and churches. Her trips included a cruise from Norway to the North Pole where she rode in dog sleds, Christmas Markets in Germany and France, a trip to Bavaria, and a family vacation in Venice, Italy to celebrate her 80th birthday. She came to Waddington for summer visits and later returned to the United States in 20ll.

She is survived by her children; Anna Gerhard-Arnold and her husband, Guy of Waddington, Brigitte Gerhard of Rowland s Castle, UK and Christoph and Norine Gerhard with their two children, Gabriel and Grace of New Hampshire.

A Memorial Service for Ursula will be held at the United Methodist Church, on Route 37 in Waddington on Saturday, April 29th at 2:00pm
