Where's Reed When We Need Him?

Time was when virtually everyone in the Wyalusing area knew Reed Gould, who is pictured above in a 1968 photo shoveling snow when he was 73 years old. Reed could be described as an opportunist and when sidewalks needed shoveling in Wyalusing, Reed would be there with his shovel. A caption with this photo said Reed could "shovel circles around men half his age." In the summer, Reed supported himself mowing lawns, painting and doing odd jobs. One of our favorite Reed Gould stories centers around the time a traveler stopped him on Main Street one sleepy summer afternoon and asked how to get to Binghamton. "You can't get to Binghamton from here," Reed responded in his staccato mumble. "You have to go to Camptown first."
