WEST NYACK - A Rockland woman was honored by the county Tuesday for standing up against hate in her neighborhood.

In November, Millicent "Ivey" Mackle took it upon herself to eliminate anti-Semitic graffiti painted on the road outside her house in Pomona. She covered it with paint and drew a heart over it.

Because of her actions, Rockland County Executive Ed Day presented Mackle with the Key to the County at the Jewish Community Campus in West Nyack.

Mackle was joined at the presentation by her husband, Dan, and their 14-month-old twins, Jack and Emily. Mackle says her key will now hang proudly and prominently in her living room.

Mackle is the second person Rockland County has honored with a key.

Those responsible for the graffiti have not yet been located.
