American Foursquare

See video

Built circa 1924, this handsome American Foursquare home has what many home buyers are looking for - location, function, beauty, and value. In addition to 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, this home has a formal dining room, a living room and a gracious entry way - it is a rare find with a facinating history. Many of the homes original details remain intack - surely something that will interest the old home enthusiast. Hardwood floors, wood moldings, window seats, pocket doors, built in cabinetry, period lighting fixtures and high ceilings are some of the features that are sure to delight the discriminating buyer.

While the home has deep roots in the past, it features modern conveniences for today's active lifestyles including an upgraded kitchen with a blend of original & new cabinetry, a tastefully remodeled bathroom, upgraded electric, a full basement and a roomy two car garage. A large , open attic could be additional living space, an art studio or used to store personal belongings. The front porch and rear deck are perfect venues for relaxation and enjoyment of the beautiful natural surroundings.  Read more

"Obsessed" vegan cheesemaker found calling after career in restoration

Cheezehound's Barneveld variety, named for the upstate New York town, is a sharp, aged, semi-soft nut cheese. Photos courtesy of Lori Robin.

Lori Robin didn’t set out to start a vegan cheese company. A gilder and stone carver by trade, she had planned to teach restoration workshops for antiques lovers in a studio in the Delaware County village of Fleischmanns.

“Take people out shopping, buy something from one of the antique shops, bring it back to the studio, restore it, and go home with a finished product. That was the plan,” Robin said. “But I was…” she paused, searching for a word.

“Derailed by cheese?” I offered.

“That’s exactly right!”

Now Robin’s space is a commercial kitchen, where she handcrafts an increasing variety of organic, cultured vegan nut cheese alternatives for sale in the Catskills, New York City, and — thanks to a new distributor — beyond.

Robin has no doubt that there’s a market for her cheese.  Read more

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

CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM – 7PM

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. However, this time around we’ll be straying from the path a little bit by discussing the overall tree-to-human relationship – People & Trees. 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 @ to learn more.  Read more

Neighbors risk lives to help man burned in Margaretville explosion

A man was badly burned in a series of explosions in a garage on Route 30 just outside of the village of Margaretville in Delaware County on Monday, March 16. In between blasts, two of the man’s neighbors, Allen Misner and Cody Ackerly, helped drag him to safely as the garage burned. 

The man was severely injured, Misner, Ackerly and other witnesses at the scene report.

On Tuesday, March 17, the staff of Westchester Medical Center's burn unit said that the man's medical condition is stable.

The man is still not being identified by the New York State Police, according to spokesman Nathan Riegal. But because his condition is stable, his next of kin have been notified and his name has been widely publicized by other newspapers, we are identifying him as Sandy Scudder, a Margaretville resident. 

The first explosion happened around 12:15 p.m. on Monday at 42463 Route 30, and blew the door off the garage into the street.  Read more
