Letter to the Editor: Those (Homeland Security) vehicles could be crucial
I commend Sheriff Michael Schiff for an innovative approach to a budget crunch, as he has found a way to purchase equipment that otherwise would not be available. To imply that future maintenance costs of these ATVs should be the litmus test to accept or reject the federal funding is, in my eyes, ludicrous. I am well aware of the tax overhead within Sullivan County, as I am a lifelong Sullivan County resident, whose family has been living here for nine generations. Read More
Steve Israel: Welcome Sullivan's new summer locals Welcome to the crazy quilt of humanity that's summer in Sullivan - a quilt touching just about every corner in our region. Our streets and shops aren't just teeming with thousands of Hasidic visitors in black and white. The snowbirds from Florida in their sunny pastels are here, at supermarkets from Ellenville to Monticello. Second-home owners from the city in their shades of black are here, too, at farmer's markets from Port Jervis to Pine Bush. Russian immigrants are back, and so is every ethnic and secular group under the summer sun, from the Buddhists up in Ulster to the Boy Scouts down in Narrowsburg. Read More

Callicoon Comprehensive Plan Generates NIMBY Opposition to Natural Gas
The Town Board of the Town of Callicoon, New York, Sullivan County held a public hearing last week on their draft Town of Callicoon Comprehensive Plan. We've seen a few comprehensive plans recently that were meant to do little more than lay the groundwork for zoning out natural gas development, leading to unintended consequences, but this draft plan, while it hardly gives a carte blanche approval of it, is actually open to natural gas exploration in Callicoon.

"We weren't slated to race on that Friday but we added the date so we could be part of the Back to the Track national harness racing promotional weekend," noted raceway GM Shawn Wiles." Read More
In Calling for Change, Jeb Should Stop Using "Liberal" as Dirty Word
by Steven Kurlander
Since appearing before Congress and lamenting the intolerance found in today's Republican Party, Jeb Bush is continuing to press his case, most recently in a National Review article entitled "The Grand Solutions Party."
Bush argues that President Obama has governed from a "One Ideology, One Party, and One Man" perspective - "a centralized, planned, command-and-control government."
Bush suggests Republicans present an alternative governing style, one that embraces "policy experimentation and fresh approaches" and presents the GOP as the "party of competing ideas."
"It is time for the Republican party to offer an alternative...Continue Reading

Opinion: The Wise Way to Regulate Gas Drilling
States like Texas, Pennsylvania and New York are now rushing to impose their own rules. But what we really need is a system of federal oversight that will promote confidence in this technique and provide the industry with uniform standards without overregulating it. Read More
N.Y. releases scores on economic projects:
The state released details Thursday on how hundreds of projects were scored in 2011 during the first round of grants issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's 10 regional economic-development councils...In the Hudson Valley, the regional council had three priority projects, and one was funded - $4 million for a New York Medical College biotechnology incubator laboratory in Westchester County.

This may send Wall Streeters to prison
One problem with prosecutions over the financial crisis was the lack of evidence to show actual criminal fraud. People do stupid things during bubbles, and stupidity doesn't always equal criminality. But there is evidence in the Libor probe: Barclays handed over e-mails that are damning for the bank and others, because they suggest both intent to break the law and collusion among different banks to rig the system.

Paladino: 'It's all about incumbency' for RINOS
It's all about incumbency. The RINOs have been so comfortable in their seats that they now believe that they no longer have to respect the basic values of the people who put them in office. They think their constituencies are so dumbed down that they can use their public office to wire up their lame kids with high paying jobs and hot have to answer for it. Read More

|Today's Featured "Uncensored Sullivan County Facebook" Page Post: Failing the Regents Exam|
|Lawrence Gold: "Saw something interesting but not surprising in South Fallsburg today. There are reserved parking spots near the Fallsburg Fire House so fireman can promptly respond to their firetrucks, etc. for emergencies. All fireman's spots were being occupied by cars of our "summer residents." Signs blatantly ignored. Since all other spots on the street are also occupied, where will our first responders park in the event of a fire or other calamity? Fallsburg Police, you may want to start writing tickets. The fines may help with the expected tax increases we are expecting for next year." Read responding comments|
