Saugerties residents split over proposed RYAN House

Saugerties residents split over proposed RYAN House

None of the people who spoke against a house for people who have competed recovery from drug or alcohol addiction proposed for 19 Barclay Street in Saugerties spoke against the idea of a facility. They said that the proposed location was not the place for it, asserting that the neighborhood already had more than its share of such facilities.

Woodstock firefighters pay tribute to the fallen of 9/11

Woodstock firefighters pay tribute to the fallen of 9/11

It was a calm, clear morning, much the same as it was 20 years ago as members of the Woodstock Fire Department made their way up Overlook Mountain as part of the 9/11 Stair Climb to pay tribute to those who died on that fateful day and to raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Association. A group of 14 and some of their children participated in the climb, which is about the same distance up and back as the 110 flights climbed by members of the FDNY on 9/11 as they attempted to rescue people from the North and South towers of the World Trade Center.
