Looking Back 1/18

Methodist minister Horace Weston of Connecticut was the pioneer preacher in Ulster and Sullivan counties, NY. When his health gave way in 1826, he moved to Ellenville, NY, and began to manufacture stoneware just as the Delaware & Hudson Canal facilitated distribution of his wares. Weston crocks and jugs were sold as far away as Scranton.

As the director of the Big Eddy Film Festival (BEFF), which showcases new independent film in Narrowsburg each September, I always enjoy seeing our region represented on the big screen, and the small one.

I think Mother Nature is going through the changes. One day it 3 degrees and the next its 59. Well, I guess that is why they call it winter, it can snow all it wants, just not on the roads. I am the Cochecton Town Tax Collector and will be in the town hall collecting taxes.

Winter weather affects animals too

Winter in our region can be quite unpredictable. Sometimes we experience extremely cold temperatures, as we did this past week; while at other times during our winter months, we can have temperatures in the 50s or 60s. It is extremely important to be aware of the rapid and harsh weather changes, as they affect animals too.

The first Livingston Manor Ice Carnival was held in 1959 at Scudder’s Pond. Forty years later, in 1999, The River Reporter captured this shot of one of the student sculptures that have come to form a centerpiece of the celebration.

Baby, it’s cold outside—more like freezing. I do not remember it being this cold for this long of a period. You have to dress in layers to stay warm. Thank you to the Cochecton road crew for keeping our roads safe.

Congratulations to Gertrude and Leonard Martin, who just celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.
