Freshtown takes steps to deter card hacking

in

By Joe Moskowitz
Margaretville’s Freshtown Supermarket has taken steps aimed at ending the credit- and debit- card hacking that has plagued the area in recent weeks.
Freshtown store manager Robert Griffiths has confirmed that the store has installed new card swiping, or Point of Sale (POS) machines. According to federal investigators, card security breaches often begin at that point.
Because of the number of card swipe machines it operates, and volume of business it does, Fresh­town has been considered one of the possible targets of the hacker or hackers.

Denning ZBA denies Judd Hirsch's turbine application

in

By Joe Moskowitz
Veteran actor Judd Hirsch battled New York City traffic in the TV series “Taxi” and aliens bent on killing earthlings in “Independence Day,” but he proved to be no match for the independent minds of the Ulster County Town of Denning’s Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).
Last Tuesday the ZBA ruled that since the town codes do not specifically allow the construction of wind turbines, Hirsch cannot build a 177-feet-tall wind tower and generator on 91 acres he owns near Clary­ville, the only community in the Town of Denning.
Opponents of the project complained to the ZBA, say­ing it would be unsightly and noisy.
Hirsch insisted that no one would see it or hear it.

Opening Day: Not many fishermen or trout to be seen

in


HOOKED ON FISHING — Fishermen were few and far between on Monday for opening day of the 2014 trout season. High and cold water, fueled by melting snow in the mountains, made for good fishing but very poor catching. Above, Travis Lawyer, in foreground, and his brother Zach, both of Otego, were trying their luck on the East Branch of the Delaware just north of Margaretville early Tuesday afternoon. Travis told the News that he frequently makes the trip from Otego to fish in the East Branch. He also said that a DEC officer with whom he had had a conversation told him that he hadn’t seen a fisherman with a trout all day. Some fishermen may agree that it’s no coincidence that the trout season opens on April Fool’s Day. — Photo by Dick Sanford
