Let love win

I was very pleased by the response to last month’s column about the potential power of love to transcend nationality and ease intercultural tensions. Hopefully it struck a chord.

Like a gleaming phoenix rising from the ashes, Resorts World Catskills is ushering in a Sullivan County renaissance.

Let the games begin!

Anticipation was the name of the game over the last few days, as the excitement surrounding Resorts World Catskills (RWC) built to a crescendo and its doors were flung open for the first time last Thursday morning.

These yearling immature bald eagles were above the Lackawaxen confluence early in February. As is the case with the young of many species, the play instinct is strong. Many immature eagles display talons to each other, but it is mostly play; they are also honing skills they will need to survive.

Winter eagles and air shows

This is the time of year when ice is plentiful on the lakes and rivers, a central factor in explaining why we see so many bald eagles over-wintering in our region. During these cold months, many eagles migrate from northern New England and Canada to spend the winter here.

Design for living

I have a not-so-secret vice: I love interior design, and I have tear sheets going back decades. I am addicted to home improvement shows. I thrill to see those neglected houses brought back to life and made appropriate for the way we live now.

Fans showered Bethel’s Shlomo Franklin, center, and his band with love during their appearance last Saturday at Cabernet Franks in Parksville, NY.

Stop! In the name of love…

Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day can be rough, and not just for the single folks out there. If one is in a committed relationship of any kind, there’s an inherent expectation of flowers, candy and jewelry sparkling in the candlelight of romantic dinners being held all over the world on February 14th.

Participants on the Eagle Photography Workshop Bus Tour visited the Barbara Yeaman Eagle Observation Area on Route 97 along the Delaware River. At the age of 70, Yeaman founded the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, which has protected nearly 15,000 acres of eagle habitat that benefits both wildlife and human inhabitants of the Upper Delaware River region.

'Capturing' eagles

For fans of the bald eagle, the future is looking much brighter, thanks to the efforts of regional heroes whose love of this iconic raptor and its habitat has led to legacies that will last well beyond their lifetimes.

What we do

We are actors in a break room in an office building on the far west side of Manhattan. It could almost be any city bordered by water for all the new office buildings going up around it. I hardly recognize my hometown anymore, especially in neighborhoods that once lay fallow.
