MONTICELLO, NY — On November 19, Sullivan County employees reporting for work were greeted by a cavalcade of cars bedecked with signs and banners, honking horns as they slowly circled the government center. Nurses, union members and ordinary citizens turned out in force to protest the county’s plans to privatize two pillars of health care in the county—the Adult Care Center at Sunset Lake and the Certified Home Health Agency (CHHA).
The demonstrators attended the legislative meeting to press a key demand: that the legislative resolution authorizing the sale of the Care Center and CHHA be rescinded. After a lengthy discussion, legislator Joe Perrello proposed that the offending resolution be rescinded and replaced by one that authorized leasing only. A majority of the nine-member legislature explicitly stated that they would support such an action.

HAWLEY, PA — Hawley resident Marjorie Mullin has raised a total of $405 as she participated in this Fall’s annual Run-to-Read 5K Run/Walk sponsored by the Hawley Public Library. The library’s annual October fundraiser was adapted this year to become a Virtual 5K Run/Walk.
Mullin decided to help support the Library by taking part; she logged a total of 29.369 miles. She described her husband, Steve, as her inspiration, noting that he often accompanied her as she sought contributions from local businesses for the library’s 5K. “Hawley is a generous city. The merchants are wonderful! Even the clerk at the Hawley Post Office donated,” she said.
