Senior dogs and determination

May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month. Since 2005, this month is dedicated to raising awareness and combating this horrible disease. As part of my column this month, I wanted to capture another unique cancer success story from Catskill Veterinary Services.

Courthouse war: Part one

To the dismay of the citizens of Bethany, the original county seat, Honesdale became the county seat of Wayne County in 1841. By 1843, a new courthouse had been built in the borough. However, within 30 years, judges and grand juries had declared the courthouse too small, badly ventilated and altogether unsatisfactory.

To market! To market!

Often on a Saturday I would find myself at home, bored, munching on a celery stick and wishing there was somewhere, anywhere to go for a walk amongst neighbors and like-minded people. I longed to peruse artisanal cheeses, fresh pastas, quail eggs and freshly baked breads in the brisk spring air.

Looking Back

Wild leeks, or ramps, are a forager’s delicacy in Upstate New York, and spring is the prime season for these onion-like bulbs.

Ramps are most commonly found in the moist woodlands of the Northeast. The plants prefer to grow away from direct sunlight on north-facing slopes; they are unfazed by the cold temperatures in the shade.
