The Heron: A Chef's Tale

Ohio native Marla Puccetti, who co-owns The Heron in Narrowsburg, NY with her chef/partner, Paul Nanni, grew up in the restaurant industry – her uncle ran a steakhouse and her father owned an Italian restaurant – but it was not the career path her family envisioned for her.

“I begged my dad to let me work for him, but he wanted me to go to college and get a nice office job,” she recalls. “This is tough work, it’s a tough business and he wanted something different for me.”

Marla earned her bachelor’s degree from Ohio University and moved to New York to attend New School University for her graduate degree. She embarked on a successful television production career, working for the Oxygen Network, Hornet Inc. and City Lights Media Group as well as MTV, VH1, Discovery, TLC, and the Cooking Channel.  Read more

Wednesday Night’s Show: Catskill Trees with Gary Mead – Sycamore

CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM – 7PM
WIOX ROXBURY 91.3FM or www.wioxradio.org

Every 3rd Wednesday we talk to Gary Mead about a different tree found in or near the Catskill Mountains. Every tree is different, and there is always something unique & special we find out about it. On Jan. 21 we’ll be discussing the SYCAMORE tree. Sycamore – also known as button-ball – can be seen near streams and flood-plains. It is a large tree with beautiful, light-colored, camouflage bark. Gary will tell us his experiences with the SYCAMORE tree in his mill or his art.

Gary Mead is the owner of Fruitful Furnishings. Fruitful Furnishings began in 1979 as a custom furniture shop. Within ten years, a sawmill was added for producing dimension parts and providing custom sawing, planing, and kiln drying services to customers wishing to furnish their homes with wood from their own trees. More recently, Gary has added Gary Mead Gallery – located at the mill-site – which showcases one-of-a-kind pieces made from wood. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online @ www.wioxradio.org to learn more.  Read more

Shandaken gets one more chance to weigh in on Belleayre Resort

See video

For the past fifteen years, the public debate surrounding the Belleayre Resort project, a 629-unit luxury resort slated to straddle the line between the towns of Shandaken and Middletown next to the Belleayre Ski Center, has been fierce and bitter. 

But at a public hearing held Monday, Jan. 12 by the Town of Shandaken's Planning Board, at which the board took public comments about resort developer Crossroads Ventures' application for a special use permit from the town, little of that public acrimony was on display. There was plenty of standing and sitting room among the crowd of roughly 50 people who gathered for the hearing. Just 14 people spoke, there was little heckling, and the meeting lasted only about an hour.   Read more

Serial check bouncer left trail of larceny across New York and Pennsylvania, police say

A Walton man allegedly bounced checks and stole large sums of money from victims across six counties in two states, police say.

Lee S. McDonald, a 35-year-old man who owns a contracting business called Blue Moon Construction, was arrested on Thursday, Jan. 15 by investigators from the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office, according to a press release.

The Delaware County District Attorney's office charged McDonald with one count of grand larceny in the second degree and one count of grand larceny in the fourth degree. The exact amount of money McDonald allegedly stole is hidden inside a sealed grand jury indictment, but it is at least $51,000, and probably much more.  

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. In Delaware County alone, McDonald has been arrested three more times for passing bad checks from the checking accounts of Blue Moon Construction and Dam Broke Farm, another business he owns.  Read more
