ParksvilleUSA: Slam Allen - The One and Only

The Smoky Side of Jazz

SPECIAL!! SLAM ALLEN'S BIRTHDAY CELEBREATION!! 2 PERFORMANCES 7:30 and 9

For over 20 years, Slam Allen has been entertaining audiences with his unique blend of soul and blues. Playing the famous Chitlin' Circuit as well as performing around the world, Allen's music and enthusiasm has been shared with thousands of people.

For the past eight years he has played an important role, as the lead singer and guitarist, in the legendary James Cotton Band. "It's one of the highlights and privileges of my life to play with Cotton" says Allen, "He is one of the last living legends, and there's so much history there.

Cotton was directly connected to Muddy Waters -- who was a major factor in the blues world as well as being one of my all time favorites. Playing with Cotton is such a great experience for me and there are things you can learn from him that you can't learn from any school. It's a great honor."  Read more

Table limit: New York State releases minimum investment figures for casinos

Casino developers hoping to land one of four prized licenses from New York State will have to prove that they're investing enough in the project. But although the state's minimum investment figures are in the hundreds of millions of dollars, they're not likely to prove an obstacle to deep-pocketed casino developers, many of whom have already unveiled plans to spend much more than the state's required minimum figures.  Read more

This weekend: Foodstock at the Villa Roma

This Saturday, Sullivan County celebrates food, wine and public radio at Foodstock, an annual fundraiser for WJFF Radio Catskill. The event, held at the Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, features a smorgasbord of tastings from local chefs, farmers, bakers, cheesemakers, wineries, distillers and more. 

Among this year's dozens of vendors are a few exciting fresh faces on the Catskills local food scene -- like Roscoe's Northern Farmhouse Pasta, creators of a mouthwatering wild ramp ravioli, and Wurtsboro's Aaron Burr Cidery, whose founder Andy Brennan has been dubbed "New York's hottest cider producer" by Grub Street  Read more

Livingston Manor teacher arrested for embezzlement

More than $10,000 that should have gone toward caps and gowns for next year's graduating seniors, senior pictures, yearbooks and a class trip went into a Sullivan County teacher's pocket instead, police say. 

On Thursday, May 8, state police arrested 46-year-old Sandra Taggart of Livingston Manor, a special education teacher for the Livingston Manor Central School District. Taggart was the advisor for the class of 2015, and was responsible for managing funds raised by the class. Police say Taggart siphoned off more than $10,000 from a class fundraising account. 

Taggart faces charges of third-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and petit larceny. 

While the case is resolved, Taggart has been placed on administrative leave with pay. A substitute teacher has been appointed to cover her classroom duties, and temporary co-advisors have been appointed to advise the class of 2015.  Read more
