Kingston, N.Y. – August 25, 2014 – Cruise the Hudson from Kingston on the Teal motor yacht from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 13 to support the HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley’s Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program.

The fundraising cruise, during national Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, will depart from the Rondout Creek port at 1 Broadway.

“The Ovarian Cancer Support Program is committed to improving the quality of life for survivors and raising awareness of ovarian cancer in order to promote early detection,” said Ellen Marshall, director of the HealthAlliance’s Oncology Support Program, which oversees the Linda Young program.

“We’re a vital resource and support network for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and their families and friends,” she said.

Early detection is key, Marshall said.  Read more

In the long-running battle of rails versus trails in Ulster County, the trails just won big. 

In an 18 to 4 vote, the Ulster County Legislature passed Resolution 275 on Tuesday, August 19, supporting the conversion of an old Ulster & Delaware railroad right-of-way between Kingston and Boiceville into a hiking, walking and biking trail.

The Catskill Mountain Railroad (CMRR), which runs a tourist railroad on the rail corridor and holds a lease on the right-of-way that expires in 2016, has been lobbying hard to keep railroad tracks running all the way from Kingston to the town of Shandaken at the other end of the county.  Read more

Injured Esopus tuber prompts wild goose chase

Above: First responders near the Esopus Creek on Sunday, August 10, searching for an injured person who had allegedly already driven himself away from the scene.

Dive teams, firefighters, and first responders mobbed the Esopus Creek in the Ulster County village of Phoenicia on Sunday afternoon in what turned out to be a wild goose chase.

A report of an injured person in the creek on August 10 prompted a massive emergency response, according to an email from George Neher at the Shandaken Police Department.

Traffic was slowed to one lane on Route 28 as ambulances and first responder vehicles, several pulling boats, lined the roadway near the creek around 2 p.m.

But the first responders did not find any injured person in or near the creek. A police officer directing traffic told a reporter that it all seemed like a false alarm. 

As it turned out, the injured person had already left. A tuber had injured his hip and lost his inner tube while tubing the Esopus that day, prompting someone nearby to call the police, according to Neher. 

But the man left the creek himself before emergency personnel found him. Witnesses told the police that he walked to his car, which appeared to be a Mercedes-Benz, and drove away, according to Neher.   Read more
