Posted on 13 October 2017 by Editor

Welcome the new owners of Sloatsburg Wine, located in the village center shopping mall. Sisters Olga Lukashyk and Iryna Moskalyk have taken on the wine and spirit store and hope you help make the establishment a great success.

There’s more going on at Sloatsburg Wine than you might think. The store tucked next to Hayward’s Deli on the Route 17 byway through Sloatsburg, NY, is a familiar crossroads for locals.

Now Suffern resident Olga Lukashyk, along with family, including sister Iryna Moskalyk, have taken on the wine and liquor store. Iryna mentioned the interesting changes in Sloatsburg as a catalyst to talk Keith Reardon into selling the store. Many a Sloatsburger has chatted with Keith in the store or while he took a moment out front to watch the street scenes unfold. May his travels treat him well. Continue Reading

The former International Brotherhood of Teamsters leader reportedly headed off to a local Detroit restaurant to meet two purported mobsters in the summer of 1975 — never to be seen again. Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran claimed to know exactly what happened to Hoffa. In his version, Hoffa’s last ride was short and ended in blood. Sheeran by his own admission was a seasoned killer before he become muscle for the mob, claiming to be familiar with a series of sensational historical events. Continue Reading
