Area Dem. House members support SCOTUS decision on health care; Reps. oppose it
Hinchey called the court decision "the greatest victory for improving the health and well-being of all Americans since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965." As a result of the decision, Hinchey said "millions of Americans will now be able to keep or gain access to quality health insurance coverage, seniors will face lower costs for prescriptions, and children can stay on their parents' plants until they're 26 years old."
What the Obamacare ruling means for New York State
The decision does make the state Health Insurance Exchange Cuomo created by executive fiat in April viable as a marketplace for individuals and small businesses to purchase health insurance. The mandate remaining intact ensures that younger healthier purchasers will offset the costs of higher-risk and less healthy purchasers. But for his Medicaid Redesign Team's ambitious Medicaid reform plans, it's still far from a sure bet. Read more
They're still lying about ObamaCare
It's time to discard the 2,572-page Obama health law and replace it with 20 pages in honest English that members of Congress and the public will actually read. The overwhelming majority of Americans has no idea what the current law says. Read more

Monticello Walmart passes inspection
The Walmart in Monticello has passed inspection after months of failed inspections that almost shut down the store's entire food operation. The store is now operating under a new license. The company gave up the original food processing license for its bakery and deli sections on the last day of a hearing held in Albany about the stores failure to pass inspection. Read More
An Independence Day dilemma; American icons at issue
A difficult discussion about the fate of two iconic American symbols is underway in the Town of Tusten. The dialogue is not new; in fact, various Tusten boards and at least three supervisors have weighed the issue of discharging Independence Day fireworks in proximity to an eagle nest built in the Narrowsburg flats, and all have continued to approve the practice by granting permission to the sponsoring parties..

Thruway Summer Tefillah Area to Open Today
The popular Minchah-Maariv area utilized every summer by tens of thousands of men traveling to the Catskills will open today. Located at the Sloatsburg rest area on the northbound side of the New York State Thruway, the area was designated as a "prayer zone" after intense negotiations to serve the many members of the frum community who travel frequently to the Catskills during the summer months.

Test Drive at Monticello Motor Club: 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth
In my case, that meant the quaint little village of Monticello. The one in the Catskills, not outside Milan. This is fine, because the local version has some nice mountain rounds in and around it, plus a racetrack: the Monticello Motor Club. It's a long, fast circuit with an epic ¾-mile straight that makes the 500 Abarth look like a tumbleweed, along with a few technical twisty bits that do their best to trip up the most exotic of sports cars.

What to Do This Weekend in Sullivan County?
We're taking suggestions, before an extended and Internet-free stay near Callicoon and Jeffersonville (look for slightly fewer posts next week!), on what to do in the area. Yes, we'll hit the Callicoon Farmers' Market (and keep an eye out for Mark Ruffalo). Perhaps we'll take in a flick at the Callicoon Theater. Tool around the Bethel Woods Center (this weekend's concert is sold out). Pet some alpacas? Catch some fireworks at the Villa Roma? Anyone else have suggestions of unknown treasures to see and experience in the western Catskills? Please let us know! Read More

"Putting the sensational aspects of the Sandusky trial aside, the true significance of that trial, as well as the Lynn conviction and the mess in the shetels of Brooklyn, is that it highlights how powerful religious and educational institutions are also culpable accomplices in these crimes. And that their immoral leaders deserve to be punished as well."
Covering up child abuse as reprehensible as pedophilia itself
by Steven Kurlander
There's been a great deal of sensational news lately concerning pedophiles in the United States. The common denominator is these individuals preyed upon children while religious and educational institutions established upon foundations of trust and morality ignored or covered-up such disgusting and illegal behavior.
The most sensational: the trial of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach,. He was convicted last week on 45 of 48 counts for sexually abusing several young boys over a number of years while they attended camps sponsored by Sandusky's Second Mile charitable organization at Penn State.
The riveting testimony at his trial from several victims not only showed that Sandusky, who had worked most of his career under legendary Coach Joe Paterno, and one of the nation's most lucrative and revered football programs in the county, abused these boys on the Penn State campus, but that university officials failed to act on them when sexual abuse reports were made...Continue Reading | Comment | Kurly's Kommentary

Opinion: Court decision on stop, question and frisk puts all New Yorkers at risk

|Today's Featured "Uncensored Sullivan County Facebook Page Post: Our Unhealthy Lifestyles in Sullivan County|
|Lawrence Gold:"Has anybody taken notice of how much the average Sullivan County resident ignores a healthy lifestyle? Only a small percentage actually exercise. We choose to drive, even when it's only a few blocks away. Not so in NYC, where you don't want to pay again for parking or lose your space. State reports find that we are among the unhealthiest. Few restaurants for healthy eating but many selling fast food. Few gyms but the stores that sell beer seem always crowded. Our summer residents are usually going for long walks every morning. Not us. With all the natural beauty, very few of us actually take advantage of it...Read over 85 comments|
