Retiring Woodstock School of Art board members Paula Nelson & John Kleinhans look back on legacy

“We haven’t really quit the board, you know. We simply have not run for reelection. We’ll continue to be still involved with the school.” Thus does Paula Nelson – one of the surviving founders of the Woodstock School of Art, and a mainstay of its operation for more than five decades – downplay the recent decision by herself and her husband, John Kleinhans, to step down from WSA’s Board of Directors. Nonetheless, it’s nice to pay tribute to people who have contributed a great deal to a community while they’re still alive and kicking. So, this action seems as good an excuse as any to remind readers how much work and commitment it took to keep this amazing cultural resource alive for all these years.

Under a system called community choice aggregation, all Central Hudson customers in the village would be enrolled in a program that purchases electricity from renewable energy providers. Joule, the facilitator of the program, aims to offer savings by locking in rates for a year and negotiating for multiple municipalities. Individual customers can choose to opt out and pay the regular Central Hudson price.
