MILFORD, PA — Ilya Yakushev, an award-winning pianist and recording artist, will perform music by Beethoven, Liszt, Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky at the Milford Theatre on May 18 at the Milford Theatre.

Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head

Hopefully by the time this edition of the award-winning River Reporter hits the stands, the endless rain will have stopped—but as I sit at my desk to put the proverbial pen to paper?

Making a plan. My Toast to Milford partner in facials, speed-walking and sipping, Raina Bowers, looks over the map beside the Milford Craft Show. Whatever itinerary we thought up and tried to follow got thrown out the window as our day progressed.

Toasted, tasted, conquered

I’ve never been to Milford. Of course, living a substantial 45 minutes away, I’ve never had much reason to go. But, as The River Reporter’s managing editor, I’m suddenly quite knowledgeable about most of the events happening within a 30-mile radius of my little bubble.

Borscht Belt former Staffers Reunion organizer Robin Cohen Kauffman was one of many who met her future husband Michael at the Concord Hotel during the golden age of the Catskills.

Déjà vu

What do you get when you mix one part Marty McFly, one part Mr. Peabody and a dash of The Twilight Zone, sprinkled with a light dusting of History 101?

Let the 'Sunshine' in

With the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival 50th anniversary just around the corner, it seems that everyone in Sullivan County is jumping on the hippie bandwagon. Not to discredit the excitement buzzing around the county in anticipation, but SC has an original ‘Funky Hippy Chic’ with a story that deserves to be told.
