Photo via the NYS DEC.</em></p> <p>An environmental conservation officer and a snake wrangler were called in to remove a rattlesnake from the yard of a home in the Ulster County hamlet of Mount Tremper on Friday, July 1, according to a press release from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.</p> <p>The snake was a three-foot-long Eastern Timber rattlesnake, a species that is <a href="http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7147.html">listed as threatened in New York State</a>. Hikers in Ulster County know to be mindful of encountering rattlesnakes on trails in the Catskills, but reports of rattlesnakes turning up at private homes are rare.</p> <p>The Mount Tremper homeowner who discovered the rattlesnake called for help around 7 p.m. Friday, July 1, according to the press release. Environmental Conservation Officer Myles Schillinger responded to the call and contacted Nuisance Wildlife Agent Roy Lane, who is an expert snake wrangler.<span class="read-more"><a href="/2016/rattlesnake-found-mount-tremper-yard"><strong>&nbsp; Read more</strong></a></span></p> <div class="field field-type-viewfield field-field-in-story-ad"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="view view-in-story-ad view-id-in_story_ad view-display-id-block_1 view-dom-id-9fa2bde7656a321237c83ddb054052b5"> <div class="view-content"> <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first views-row-last"> <div class="views-field views-field-body"> <div class="field-content"><div style="padding:5px;border:1px solid #e0e0e0;"> <!-- 300x250_in_story --> <div id='div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0' style='width:300px; height:250px; float:left;margin-right:20px;'> <script type='text/javascript'> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0'); }); </script> </div> <div class="smalladz" style="margin-left:10px;"><a href="http://woodstockwritersradio.com/"><img src="/images/woodstockfrankel.png" width="150" height="250" alt="Woodstock Writers Radio with Martha Frankel and guests" style="margin-bottom:5px;"/></a></div> </div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> http://www.watershedpost.com/2016/rattlesnake-found-mount-tremper-yard#comments Mount Tremper Shandaken Ulster County Department of Environmental Conservation eastern timber rattlesnake outdoor outdoors rattlesnake snake wrangler snakes Government Government Julia Reischel no Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:17:34 +0000 Julia Reischel 39791 at http://www.watershedpost.com BEES, HONEY & YOU returns by popular request - Saturday, August 27th! http://www.watershedpost.com/sponsored/2016/bees-honey-you-returns-popular-request-saturday-august-27t-0 <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-mainimage"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_mainimage" width="480" height="339" alt="" src="http://www.watershedpost.com/sites/default/files/bluedeercenter/MTC_Bee2_BDC_Aug%2027_1.jpg?1469124912" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><div id="media-youtube-1" class="media-youtube"> <div id="media-youtube-default-external-1"> <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="385" width="480" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/4zGH4dXCFxs&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" id="media-youtube-default-external-object-1"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4zGH4dXCFxs&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" /> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/> <param name="quality" value="best"/> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"/> <param name="scale" value="noScale"/> <param name="salign" value="TL"/> <param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" /> <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> <!-- Fallback content --> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zGH4dXCFxs"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/4zGH4dXCFxs/0.jpg" alt="See video" title="See video" width="480" height="385" /></a> </object> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p>As a young boy, Will&nbsp;<em>“the Bee Man”&nbsp;</em>Patterson was introduced to his life-long interest in bees by his grandfather and has been raising honey bees for over twenty years.

One local weekly quit publishing entirely, while two more that are part of a regional chain laid off veteran reporters.</p> <p>The Delaware County Times, a newspaper that traces its lineage back to 1839 in Delhi, published its last issue on Friday, July 8.</p> <p>The paper employed three people in its Delhi office on a part-time basis and relied on a cadre of freelance journalists, including the author of this article, to cover local news. Contributors were notified on July 8 that the paper would cease publication.</p> <p>Donald Bishop, the publisher of the paper, did not return a request for comment. Cathy Roloson, who coordinated the news gathering and layout of the paper, said that a companion publication, the semiannual Kaatskill Life magazine, will continue to be published online and that she will continue to work in the Delhi office. She also indicated that the Delaware County Times may resume publishing in the future.<span class="read-more"><a href="/2016/one-catskills-newspaper-closes-two-more-cut-reporters"><strong>&nbsp; Read more</strong></a></span></p> <div class="field field-type-viewfield field-field-in-story-ad"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="view view-in-story-ad view-id-in_story_ad view-display-id-block_1 view-dom-id-9fa2bde7656a321237c83ddb054052b5"> <div class="view-content"> <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first views-row-last"> <div class="views-field views-field-body"> <div class="field-content"><div style="padding:5px;border:1px solid #e0e0e0;"> <!-- 300x250_in_story --> <div id='div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0' style='width:300px; height:250px; float:left;margin-right:20px;'> <script type='text/javascript'> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1415717181520-0'); }); </script> </div> <div class="smalladz" style="margin-left:10px;"><a href="http://woodstockwritersradio.com/"><img src="/images/woodstockfrankel.png" width="150" height="250" alt="Woodstock Writers Radio with Martha Frankel and guests" style="margin-bottom:5px;"/></a></div> </div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> http://www.watershedpost.com/2016/one-catskills-newspaper-closes-two-more-cut-reporters#comments Andes Arkville Bloomville Cadosia Davenport Center Delaware County Downsville East Meredith Grand Gorge Hobart Kelsey Sidney Center Stamford Treadwell Bovina East Branch Fleischmanns Meridale South Kortright Trout Creek West Davenport Colchester Fishs Eddy Halcottsville Davenport Harvard Margaretville Delhi New Kingston Deposit Franklin Hamden Hancock Harpersfield Kortright Masonville Meredith Middletown Roxbury Windham Sidney Stamford Tompkins Walton Greene County Catskills Delaware County Times doom journalism media Mountain Eagle newspapers Windham Journal Robert Cairns no Thu, 21 Jul 2016 00:20:29 +0000 Robert Cairns 39785 at http://www.watershedpost.com Get SpillianFest Advance Tix Online and Save! http://www.watershedpost.com/sponsored/2016/get-spillianfest-advance-tix-online-and-save <div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><div id="media-youtube-2" class="media-youtube"> <div id="media-youtube-default-external-2"> <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="385" width="480" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/Rp0BgzCVU24&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" id="media-youtube-default-external-object-2"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Rp0BgzCVU24&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" /> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/> <param name="quality" value="best"/> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"/> <param name="scale" value="noScale"/> <param name="salign" value="TL"/> <param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" /> <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> <!-- Fallback content --> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp0BgzCVU24"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/Rp0BgzCVU24/0.jpg" alt="See video" title="See video" width="480" height="385" /></a> </object> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h3 data-fontsize="16" data-lineheight="24" style="margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em; font-style: normal; font-size: 16px; font-family: 'Antic Slab'; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); line-height: 1.5; letter-spacing: 0px; box-sizing: border-box;"><strong style="font-size: 16px;">Saturday, July 23, 2016<br style="box-sizing: border-box;" />4 – 6 PM – Cajun Feasting and the Zydeco Revelators<br style="box-sizing: border-box;" />6 – 8 PM – Dylan Doyle Band Live Concert Recording &amp; Live WIOX Broadcast (with MTC Support!)<br style="box-sizing: border-box;" />7 – 9 PM – Bonfire</strong></h3> <h3 data-fontsize="16" data-lineheight="24" style="margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em; font-style: normal; font-size: 16px; font-family: 'Antic Slab'; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); line-height: 1.5; letter-spacing: 0px; box-sizing: border-box;"><strong style="font-size: 16px; box-sizing: border-box;">How To Order Tickets</strong></h3> <h3 data-fontsize="16" data-lineheight="24" style="margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em; font-style: normal; font-size: 16px; font-family: 'Antic Slab'; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); line-height: 1.5; letter-spacing: 0px; box-sizing: border-box;"><span style="font-size: 16px; box-sizing: bord<span class="read-more"><a href="/sponsored/2016/get-spillianfest-advance-tix-online-and-save"><strong>&nbsp; Read more</strong></a></span></p> </span></h3><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-business-reference"> <div class="field-items"> <p><em>This Sponsored Story is paid advertising.
