Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater

Poor guy, that Peter, Peter. Had a wife and couldn’t keep her. Actually, I feel sorry for her, since (according to the nursery rhyme) he then resorted to putting the old ball-and-chain into a pumpkin shell “and there he kept her very well.” These words flashed through my mind while glancing at my upcoming events schedule (www.riverreporter.com/where-when) and sensing a theme emerging.  Read more

Using the river in the fall

REGION — Recreating on the Delaware River in the fall can be simultaneously a peaceful and an exhilarating experience. Gone are the hazy, humid days of high summer, and as the hot-weather-worshiping crowds head home, a feeling of tranquility descends over the river.

With this serenity also comes the excitement of being on the open river even as brisk temperatures arrive, generating that cloud of breath that hangs in the air in front of your face, and the pulse seems to quicken.  Read more

Lake Huntington News October 10

When I first moved to Cochecton Center, the first two people I met were Doug and Eleanor Heinle at Heinle’s General store. They were talking about Founder’s Day, when the community all gets together to have fun. I worked side by side with Eleanor and loved every minute of it—great memories. Eleanor passed away on September 25 at the age of 93. God bless her. Eleanor Heinle Martin’s service will be on Sunday, October 13 at 1 p.m. at the Cochecton Center United Methodist Church.  Read more

A disgraceful tale from the Land of Plenty

One in two American children will be on the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) at some time in their lives; one in four goes to bed hungry every night. In 1980 there were 200 food banks in the U.S.; today there are 40,000. Fifty million Americans live in a state of “food insecurity”—undernourished and unsure where their next meal is coming from.  Read more
