And it took 20 years, but the Huguenots finally won their second MHAL title — this after being in their third straight Final Four and losing in the Final two years in a row — beating Millbrook 64-43 on February 28, with Patrick Murphy — seemingly fully recovered from ankle issues that held him to just eight games played this season — leading the way with 17 points and 12 rebounds, with Justin DeMaria with 15 and Jackson Soper 14.

Summer seems a long way away in the midst of winter, even in this relatively mild one we’re having (knock on wood). But if you’re a community-minded individual who wants the Independence Day celebration to return to New Paltz this July, it’s time to step forward.
From the Feb. 27 edition: Historic Preservation Commission and Elting Memorial Library to sponsor a juried art show; Historical society to present illustrated talk with Paul O’Neill; Welcome lady golfers; and more.
Section 9 boys’ swimming, wrestling, gymnastics and round ball roundup.
Words cannot capture the feeling in one’s gut as an acrobat steps climbs onto a board that teeters atop a stack of blocks and cylinders that wiggle in all directions, nor can they fully convey the joy of watching a dog leap over his tumbling master or ride a scooter like a biped. Circuses are designed to invoke emotions and stimulate all the senses, down to the hair raising on the back of the neck and the tongue salivating for cotton candy. None of the children admitted free to this circus have ever attended one in New Paltz before, but given the welcome it received, organizers seem hopeful that it won’t be that long a wait to see one again.
“I thought it was so sad that no one was adopting him because he had a medical condition. The fact that he had been there for so long – it really hit home for me. Sick cats needs homes too.”
Peotter began the process of coordinating the efforts of the New Paltz Climate Smart Task Force by doing “a deep dive into research,” she notes, learning what the certification process was all about. She got some help from a few SUNY New Paltz interns, and “together we all learned a lot and then got rolling.”
The circus is coming to New Paltz – not just any circus, but the Cole All-Star Circus, founded in 1938: a mom-and-pop version of Cirque de Soleil, with acrobatic performances, jugglers, trapeze artists, fire-eaters and more. They are a fundraising organization dedicated to entertaining entire families while at the same time raising money for charitable causes. In the case of New Paltz, this would be for the new Hasbrouck Park Playground fund.
