  • Comment on Putnam Lawmakers Discuss Public Health Issues by Ann Fanizzi June 17, 2018
    Ironically, there is a shop in Carmel overlooking beautiful Lake Gleneida on Seminary Hill called Happy Habits frequented often by vape smokers etc. And just up Seminary Hill, there is a proposal for a distillery to pluck up spirits if Happy Habits doesn't on the former Guidepost property now housing Paladin. It is adjacent to Arms Acres, a substance ab […]
  • Comment on 5G Cell Units Coming to Beacon by Charles Symon June 16, 2018
    Beacon should allow Verizon to install the 5G units anywhere Verizon that installed its Fios network in Beacon (nowhere, as of now). Install Fios first so we have some competition with Cablevision.
  • Comment on Climate Smart by Frank Haggerty June 15, 2018
    Contrary to popular opinion, all-electric vehicles do not represent an overall improvement in terms of a reduction of greenhouse or other gas emissions. All the electric vehicles do is relocate the various types pollution from the vehicle's exhaust pipe to the sources of the electricity, and generally this means fossil fuel-based power plants, and to th […]
  • Comment on Climate Smart by Krystal Ford June 15, 2018
    Thank you for your series. Far too many of the media and our political leaders are silent when it comes to addressing climate change, one of our most pressing issues. You are right to say this is a legacy issue. We are leaving this earth in much worse shape for our children and grandchildren. That is why I am urging local school boards to speak out and decla […]

    I wish to commend The Current for publishing such valuable, insightful articles concerning Climate Smart impacts and adaptation and mitigation strategies.

Private property accounts for a sizable portion of the town’s land and having both residential and commerci […]
  • Comment on Dan Einbender (1949-2018) by Judy Wald June 10, 2018
    I am so saddened to learn of Dan’s passing. I was looking forward to seeing and hearing him sing at the Clearwater Festival, when I saw a listing for a tribute to him. We worked together at Burke Rehab, he was a sensitive, caring music therapist for the Alzheimer’s patients. He got them singing, smiling, and dancing. And me, too.
  • Comment on Haldane’s Stowell Third in Pentathlon by Janey Hughes June 10, 2018
    Yay Abbey! A gutsy kick in the 800 took 3rd in the date. Awesome and fun to watch!
  • Comment on Going to Syracuse by David Marion June 9, 2018
    I wish Abbey great success in the state championship. She shouldn’t have had to travel and train in Putnam Valley. In 2012 we the taxpayers paid more than $2 million for a new football, soccer, lacrosse and track facility. Obviously the track does not met state competition standards.

    Outstanding series! Thanks to Chip Rowe, Brian PJ Cronin, and all the participants. Our little Highlands Current coverage of this monumental crisis is far superior to most major news outlets.

  • Comment on Julia Sniffen: 20 Years at Haldane by Donna Pidala June 7, 2018
    Being a Garrison parent, I've only had the opportunity to know Julia for a few years. She is a great principal! She is approachable, knowledgeable and it's evident how much she cares for her students.

    We have been fortunate to have Julia and Jeff at Haldane for so long. They both made a positive impact on our Haldane experience. Thanks Julia!
