Superintendent: Threat at Margaretville school "has been dealt with"

A student making a verbal threat to other students prompted Margaretville Central School to issue a recorded voicemail to parents on Monday, Nov. 10.

The recorded message stated:

Margaretville Central School became aware of a threat made to students. We have been in contact with the appropriate authorities to deal with the situation.

Interim superintendent John Riedl told the Watershed Post that the threat was made by a student, but that the situation was under control.

"It was a threat, just a verbal threat," Riedl said. "The student said it without a lot of forethought. It's a very difficult situation, and it's been dealt with. Help is being arranged."

Riedl said that the school's administration decided to issue a message to parents to prevent rumors circulating on social media about the incident. 

Editor's note: Julia Reischel is a parent of a Margaretville Central School student.

Phillip Lenihan, 1953-2014: Gallery owner, punk impresario, and classics scholar

Phil Lenihan, the 61-year-old owner of an eclectic series of businesses that were revitalizing the town Roxbury in Delaware County, died suddenly on Friday, Oct. 31.

Phil Lenihan had various careers as a punk band manager, classics scholar, and paralegal before he founded the Orphic Gallery, the Eight Track Museum, and the Roxbury Corner Store in 2010.

"I would call Phillip the quintessential bon vivant," said Megan McManemin, one of his younger sisters who lives in Dallas, Texas.

"He always tried to go out and have a party," said Reginald Oberlag, a friend from Lenihan's punk days in the 1980s who followed Lenihan's lead and moved up to the Catskills. "He was irrepressible."

According to Oberlag and to Lenihan's family, Lenihan died on Halloween night, in costume, on his way to a Halloween party in the Ulster County town of Woodstock. He was found near the village green in the evening, unresponsive. The cause of death was apparently a heart attack.
