Lot of folks without power of course.

About 900 Columbia Street: battle to save this historic building takes a few steps forward with an article in Rural Intelligence. Sign the petition. I did and donated 25 bucks too.

Who will run for office in Copake? Nice write up. Glad to see this blog out there.
