A woman’s place

HONESDALE, PA — Aromas of all kinds emanate from Maude Alley off of Honesdale’s Main Street.

From Nhi Mundy's Vietnamese restaurant Bà & Me, the scent of cilantro and pho soup brewing wafts through the air, mingled with lavender and herbal teas coming from the Mount Pleasant Herbary.

Instead of being late, I showed up early to the ARTSPACE Gallery in Kauneonga Lake where digital artist Susan Baus, pictured here, was putting the finishing touches on the BCA exhibit that she shares with painters David Barnett and Caroline Harrow.

Down the rabbit hole

I’m feeling a bit like the White Rabbit these days. You know—the one from Lewis Carroll’s book “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

The buzz around town

If you haven’t noticed by now, this week’s issue of The River Reporter focuses on bugs. There are some scary, life-threatening critters inhabiting the planet with us, there are also some essential to keeping us alive, like honey bees.

'Magical History Tour’

SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — There is still time to grab a seat on the “Magical History Tour,” the 24th annual historical-architectural bus trip that showcases and teaches about Sullivan County’s rich and colorful history. This year’s tour is scheduled for Saturday, June 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Grand Army of the Republic held the first Memorial Day Parade in the Town of Fremont 135 years ago. The 143rd New York State Volunteer Infantry recreates that moment at the annual memorial service held in Veteran’s Park prior to the parade.

Before the parade passes by

Over the last few days, there were two kinds of parades in my world: literal and figurative.

Chef Jonathan Martinez invites you to eat what you crave

Jonathan Martinez was all smiles when I arrived at Last Licks in Liberty, NY. The space is open, bright, with a warm, sharp color scheme of red, white and black. He’s describing all the recent renovations and upgrades—pausing often to greet customers like old friends—that brought the restaurant’s vibe closer to his vision.
