Bee Pasture

Bee Pasture

Here there is pasture for the sun struck bees;

Blue bee balm rooted deep among old stones,

Sweet white clover, wild hillside thyme,

Basswood blossoms, so much perfume to spare

It wastes on winds a half a mile away.

Eugene Wolff is a graduate of the Narrowsburg Central Rural High School and an international agronomist. Arriving in

Tusten in July, 1969, his parents built a home on the river in Narrowsburg. In the summer of 1981, he was a college intern at the newly opened outdoor amphitheater “Music Mountain” in Wood-

ridge, the first legal outdoor venue for rock concerts allowed in Sullivan County since Woodstock. Wolff continues to do business travel and lives part-time in Narrowsburg.

 

Re-discovering Woodstock’s lost relics

Despite the Woodstock festival occurring years before concert merchandising became a big business, there is still a surprising amount of memorabilia from Woodstock that has survived.

My view

I sat on a bench on my river bank remembering a childhood dream that one day I might live in a house on the Delaware River.

Just months ago, this summer’s 50th anniversary of the Woodstock music and art festival held much promise for music fans wanting to celebrate the historical three days of peace and music.

Martin Beitler is 60 years old and practices internal medicine in NYC. For 11 years, he has owned a house on the creek off of 17B. The pristine environment of Sullivan County is what drew him and his husband Jeff Bretl to buy their second home here, so he is concerned about the proposed location of the new town barn.  

Protecting the Callicoon creek and reevaluating priorities

Our corner of Sullivan County is beautiful. Practically everywhere you turn there is a stream or a lake, stone walls abound with abundant trees and wildlife. This is the reason we bought our second home here and have invested in improving and upgrading it, and it’s the reason we love every minute we are able to spend here.


Jerry Ebert has been involved in the community over the past few decades. He was both an editor and journalist for 15 years at the Cornwall Local and Orange County Sentinel. He has been a union representative for 30 years. Currently a union representative for Sullivan County employees,  he is very close to the impacts of the area’s opioid epidemic.

The opioid epidemic: voices from the front lines

As Teamster Union representative for county employees, I can say that there is an even bigger problem our county faces besides the bottom-of-the barrel wages paid to county employees. That problem is the county’s exploding opioid epidemic.
