PRATTSVILLE — With the disturbing news of the rise in intestinal bacterial infections, we are again indebted to our healthcare community, from doctors and nurses to urgent care workers and all others we relay on.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. Celebrate with common sense.
Getting near spring so we are getting snow. Go figure. But think I did hear bluebirds singing so spring is on the horizon.

After a phone call with Greene County Veterans Service Agency, can wholeheartedly recommend all veterans who are looking for information or assistance to call them at 518-943-3703. Either Michelle, Tyler or Vee will be able to assist you. If they do not know the answers to your inquiry, they will make phone calls and get back to you with the answer to your questions.
Case in point: we are not able to donate homemade afghans/laprobes to the Stratton VAMC in Albany due to COVID restrictions and our very generous and caring crafters continue to make them and now we have a number of nursing homes in Greene County who will gladly accept them for our veterans. Vee got in touch with four or five Greene County based nursing home and was assured we could donate the afghans or laprobes specifically to our veterans. Also Tyler was very helpful in sharing information on benefits that we did not know were available to veterans. Veterans and veterans’ families, please call the Veterans Service Agency at 518-943-3703, to check into seeing what you are eligible for. Thank you Michelle, Tyler and Vee.
Want to try some place new for lunch? You might want to try the new café in Tannersville. It is located on Main Street, in the building that used to house the old A & P Store. Does anyone remember the A & P food chain? Regardless, the new habitant of that place serves up a varied and nouveau menu. You can eat in, of course, as well as take out prepared food in single servings. Did not know this was available but will take advantage of this service next time in the vicinity. They also have cheeses to go. Cathy Martino, Marianne Krauss and Ginny Gurley were there for lunch and Cathy met up with acquaintances and all got to say hello to Bob Forte.
The Friday night snowstorm played nice to downstate visitors to our area. The snow did not make it too difficult to drive to our Catskills. Did cause locals to do some snow blowing around noon on Saturday. Always yin and yang.
