Narrowsburg News

Narrowsburg, we have a problem! We are overwhelmed with feral cats. Many of you are aware of this situation and don’t like it one bit.

Here are some staggering statistics. According to the webpage of “Solano Feral Cat,” the average female has 1.4 liter per year, with 3.5 live births or 4.9 kittens per year. Not so bad you are thinking. Well this equates to one pair of breeding cats and their offspring producing 420,000 cats in seven years. Now that’s a problem.  Read more

Thank you to all the litter pluckers. Your work makes a difference and grooms our roadways for all of us. Visitors coming to our area love the clean, country feeling they sense as they meander along our roads, and you contribute to that experience. (We love the feeling, too.)

Here are a couple of reminders for you:  Read more

The pansies appearing in some of the window boxes on Main Street can only mean one thing: spring is here. It seems a strange spring. Every now and then you see the remains of snow that was piled high from what seemed like constant plowing. Just ignore those reminders of our long winter and concentrate on the warm weather, spring bulbs peaking up, and get out in the fresh air. A word of caution for you gardeners: be careful not to overdo it. Sometimes you get reminders in the form of evening aches and pains that you have been raking a bit too long.  Read more

Are you aware that April 6 through 12 is National Volunteer Week? Volunteering is rewarding, and we have many volunteers in Narrowsburg ranging from those working with our Tusten Youth Commission to make “growing-up-in-Narrowsburg” memories for the younger generation, to those volunteering to feed our elderly who need meals delivered to their homes.  Read more

As the snow gradually melts from our lawns and the temperatures slowly rise to a tolerable range, we begin to see more and more residents out and about. This was surely the case on Sunday as folks came out to the St. Patrick’s pancake/French toast breakfast co-sponsored by the Narrowsburg Chamber of Commerce and the Catskill Hudson Bank. A special addition to this breakfast was the “topping” table with fresh strawberries, bananas, freshly whipped cream, chocolate chips, apples, etc. The children and adults seemed to enjoy topping their pancakes and/or French toast with delights.  Read more

Narrowsburg News for this period, not dissimilar to the news of others in the area, may be summed up in four words: closures, cancellations, calamities and cold! The repetitive snowfalls have made it difficult to plan anything. Schools, libraries and even town halls have been closed. Special events/programs have been canceled with hopes of rescheduling to a time when no snow is falling. A few folks have ventured out and accidently slid off the road, which usually results in a minor calamity more than anything else. And, yes, it has been cold, single-digit or low double-digit temperatures.  Read more

There are many people working for our town, some paid employees and some volunteers. Of note this time of year is the outstanding job our highway department is doing to keep our roads clear in the inclement weather. The highway department budget is the single largest line item for the town, yet Highway Superintendent Glenn Swenson watches our funds as if they were his own. Expenses are great and unpredictable since we are always at the mercy of Mother Nature—snow, ice, floods, winds, etc.  Read more

It has been a cold January and the month has just started. With the recent snows and sub-zero temperatures many of us have spent more time at home and indoors, perhaps resulting in some introspection leading to New Year’s resolutions. The problem with resolutions is they are often a bit too grand, or we promise the same ones year after year. Why not do something different this year? Make a resolution that is truly attainable and useful at the same time?  Read more
