Ulster County District Attorney Donald Williams said the singer, who was found with a marijuana ciga

WOODSTOCK, N.Y. (AP) -- Art Garfunkel made up for last summer's arrest for marijuana possession in Woodstock by speaking to students at two local high schools about keeping a healthy lifestyle.

Ulster County District Attorney Donald Williams said the singer, who was found with a marijuana cigarette in his ashtray after being pulled over for running a stop sign, spoke at the two Hudson Valley schools in late March.

Garfunkel, 64, would have paid a $100 fine instead.

It was the second time in less than two years that Garfunkel, a Manhattan resident, was arrested for having pot in Ulster County. He paid a fine the first time.

''He was sincere, thoughtful and impressive,'' Williams said of the Garfunkel speech he attended.

Garfunkel, who with Paul Simon made up the duo Simon & Garfunkel, produced a string of hits in the 1960s, including ''The Sounds of Silence,'' ''Mrs. Robinson'' and ''Bridge Over Troubled Water.''
