Celebrity Waiter Event at Peekamoose June 4th

The only thing serious about this event is the cause! The fun gets underway at Noon sharp when the Celebrity Waiters will greet you and guide you through this extra ordinary event. The Waiters will be competing as to whom will get the most “Tips”, all of which are donated to the Margaretville Health Foundation. If you usually tip 20% you might want to have more “Tip Bucks” available as they will pamper and entertain you for more. You can ask them to sing your favorite song, dance with you, play you a tune or tell a joke or two. Bring your imagination and make your Celebrity Waiter work for his “tip”.

Can’t wait to join us? Reserve now. The luncheon is $60 not including tips. Can’t be there? Donate a tip and tell us which waiter should get it. More information? Contact Penny Vaccaro 845-586-2631 Ext. 3181 or email [email protected].

John Faso: Experienced politician faces voters who are fed up with "insiders"

In the increasingly negative race to replace retiring Republican Congressman Chris Gibson in New York's 19th Congressional District, former State Assembly Minority Leader John Faso has all the hallmarks of a traditional general election contender. But that might not help him, because 2016 is no traditional election year.

Nationally, maverick candidate Donald Trump has ousted more traditional Republican candidates from the race for president. In the race for the 19th Congressional District, which represents the Catskills and Hudson Valley, Faso’s opponents hope to do the same to him.

Faso, a Republican, began his campaign for Congress with high name recognition and a time-tested fundraising apparatus. He spent 16 years in the New York State Assembly from 1987 to 2002 and made an unsuccessful GOP gubernatorial bid in 2006 against Democrat Elliot Spitzer.

Now, Faso's status as an experienced politician and elected official has become both a blessing and a curse.  Read more

For New York state voters who are registered with a political party, today--April 19, 2016--is the day to vote in New York state's presidential primary election.

It's one of the most exciting primary races in years, with Donald Trump expecting a landslide of Republican votes in his race against Ted Cruz and John Kasich while Hilary Clinton dukes it out with Bernie Sanders for the state's Democratic voters. 

The national and international press is watching New York voters--including some in the Catskills--as they go to the polls today.  Read more

Delaware County will tax commercial solar farms

With the possibility of commercial solar electricity generation coming to Delaware County, the Delaware County Board of Supervisors has taken steps to make sure that solar developers pay property taxes.

The board, at its meeting on Wednesday, April 13, adopted a resolution to enter into “host community benefit” agreements for commercial solar installations. The resolution circumvents state rules, which provide property tax exemptions for such installations for 15 years.

Michael Sabansky, the county's director of real property tax services, said that 6,500 letters have been sent to Delaware County landowners soliciting leases for solar installations.

“I'm sure we're going to get a few in the county,” he said. “We do have lots of land and lots of power lines.”  Read more
