Remembering glory days in the Catskills; A new cookbook celebrates the Vegetarian Hotel

THE CATSKILLS — In the heyday of Catskills resorts, Woodridge, NY was a thriving village in the Town of Fallsburg, where nearly a dozen hotels attracted summer clientele and weekenders from the big city.

Engineer responds to Denning windmill controversy

Regarding the small privately owned wind turbine electric generator proposed to be placed above Yaegerville Road in the Town of Denning, it should be obvious to everyone that energy produced from clean accessible renewable sustainable “green” resources is better for everyone than to burn coal, or gas, or nuclear fuel in a thermal electric generation facility.
