Mid-Hudson Valley blogging-heads

Your indispensable source for useless knowledge. Here's the latest pulse:

* Kingston Alderman Bill Reynolds doesn't know how to spell "and" in his announcement that city greenbacks for the Andretta Pool and Kingston Point Beach have been restored. That's good news. Once again, you'll be able to swim in other people's pee. WIN!

* Legislative Barbie (?) Brittany Turner needs an explanation about why Democrats, Republicans, Greens and Progressives suck (I'm badly paraphrasing, obviously. She said "WTF").

* The Ulster County Development Corp. advances a seminar that will tackle the question, "How can we give our Main Streets the best chance for success?" Here's an idea: Don't put it in Newburgh.

* Also, the UCDC mentioned that the Mohonk Mountain House was featured on the "Today Show," not today. It's a great trip if you live in New York City! Oh, yeah, but you don't.
