Numann Technology Center opens at RCS

By Joe Moskowitz
Guy Numann graduated from Roxbury Central School (RCS) in 1949. He only went to RCS for his last three years of high school and, as a transplanted New York City boy, he said he felt like an outsider. He also said he had to attend summer school just to get into college. But he said during those three years at RCS he learned about family, integrity, and community.
He said those values have guided him through life and he wanted to give something back to the community where he learned them.

No franchise fees for MTC in Middletown

in

By Joe Moskowitz
A battle over the supervisor’s pay raise may have dominated last Thursday’s Town of Middletown Board meeting, but it was not the only item on the agenda that brought out supporters and had to do with money.
MTC and the Town of Middletown have been negotiating a franchise agreement renewal that would continue to allow MTC to provide cable TV service within the town. The 10-year contract allows MTC, a telephone, cable TV and internet service provider, to use public rights-of-way in order to do business.

in

By Joe Moskowitz
The “Great Wall of Gilboa” is finally finished. Dozens of construction workers were joined by local, state, and New York City officials, and a United States Congressman, on October 31 to mark the completion of the rebuilding of New York City’s Gilboa Dam.
The $138 million project, which New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Emily Lloyd said, is believed to be the largest public works project in the history of the Catskills, was completed two years ahead of schedule, but that was nearly three years too late.
