Narrowsburg News

Quite a few Narrowsburg residents joined the overflowing public gathering at the January 15 Sullivan West Central School Board meeting. The topic concerning these citizens was the decision the board was to make with regards to a veterans’ school tax exemption. Veterans who have served our country in a time of war, in a combat zone and/or those with service connected disabilities are now eligible for a school tax reduction as of recently passed New York State legislation. Gold Star parents—those parents losing a child as a result of military service—are also eligible for a tax reduction.  Read more

It seems the holidays pass, and then we quickly get back to reality with the arrival of one of our tax bills. Hopefully yours did not increase much. Please be assured that your Tusten legislators are very much aware of the need to keep taxes manageable, and the Town of Tusten raised taxes about 1.5%.  Read more

Christmas and Hanukkah, 2014 are nearly just a memory. All the preparation, the activities associated, and the spirit have ended yet one more time, but really why should the spirit end? Yes, we need something to make the holidays special, but that should be the activities, special meals, out-of-the-ordinary gift giving. But spirit is something that doesn’t have to be extinguished because the holidays have passed. Simple smiles go a long way when passing even strangers in the halls of your workplace or shopping in Peck’s.  Read more

What would life be like without a few curves and bumps along the road? Unfortunately, the curves and bumps for many of us lately seem to be in the form of a miserable, drippy head cold that we have been experiencing recently. If that weren’t enough, we were hit with more drips, in the form of rain on Saturday, December 6, interfering with the Narrowsburg visit of the Santa Express. Hopefully many of you were able to catch Santa on Sunday, December 7 in a neighboring area. His visit is never disappointing and worth the trip.  Read more

Isn’t that what the holidays are about? Tradition. From the first bite of the turkey to Auld Lang Syne, those of us who are fortunate follow tradition with family and friends.  Read more

For as long as most people can remember, a special star has lit up the sky of Narrowsburg during the holiday season. It was originally erected by the Narrowsburg Chamber of Commerce approximately 60 years ago. Years later, likely in the late 1960s or ‘70s, a new pole was set, and the placement of the star changed slightly. Ed Gettel was responsible for the new rigging and cross-beam replacement, which lasted many years. Also at about that time, the Tusten Lions Club became the volunteers who maintained the star, so that each year the sky shone bright with our own special star.  Read more

On Sunday, October 19 approximately 50 people attended the annual meeting of the Tusten Historical Society. Grace Johansen, founder, and leader since the inception of the organization over 15 years ago, stepped down as president, passing the gavel to Marge Janowski, a lifetime resident of Tusten. Marge’s first order of official business was to pay tribute to Grace for her dedication to the society. Grace was presented with a clock as a token of appreciation for her many years of leadership.  Read more

Autumn has continued to show off her colors, but the leaves fall rapidly now, and the sun falls early. The days certainly are getting shorter. It’s time to think more of indoor activities.

As the weather cools, most of us put thoughts of our gardens on a back burner, yet the Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) has been meeting to decide on its 2015 grant request from Sullivan Renaissance. An early application process, which they hope to make, specifies an October 15 deadline. You will recall the NBG won the Showing of Flowers award of $5,000 and they received completion funding for 2014, together totaling $5,250. Now that is a great start for next year.  Read more
