Historic Women’s March Shows First Amendment in Action

Posted on 22 January 2017 by Editor

Kinderland at March

Tuxedo, NY resident Sue Scher, originally from Brooklyn, attended the Women’s March in NYC with old friends from her Camp Kinderland days, a camp in Tolland, MA founded in 1923 by Jewish activists as a retreat for children from the tenements of NYC.

Saturday morning in Sloatsburg started off foggy from unseasonable muggy weather, but a small group of area women were already on their way to Manhattan to merge with others traveling into the city from across the Hudson Valley, and beyond. The first thing people saw upon arriving in the city were others streaming in from subway stops and buses, and plenty of colorful signs on display.

The day in the city turned out to be one for the history books, as similar mass marches of men and women took place across the country. Continue Reading

Tuxedo Supervisor Mike Rost Delivers Sobering Fiscal News

Posted on 23 November 2015 by Editor

The Tuxedo Town Council recently voted to adopt its 2016 budget. The good news is that the town’s administration has finally gotten to the heart of the money matters — a combination of an apparently incompetent auditor that helped produce a conga line of uninformed fiscal decisions by the municipality over time.

The bad news is that the average Tuxedo homeowner will see a property tax increase in 2016 of between $365 to $389.

There will not be any Genting gifts to bail the Town out this year. Continue Reading

Tuxedo Lady Tornadoes Have Winning Volleyball Season

Posted on 19 November 2015 by Editor

The Tuxedo Lady Tornadoes showed spirit and capped a winning season with a gritty showing in the Section 9 Class D Volleyball Finals in early November. 

Emily Dowling of the George Baker High School Tornadoes goes up high for a block in recent tournament play. The Lady Tornadoes finished the year with a winning season.

Emily Dowling of the George Baker High School Lady Tornadoes Vollyball team goes up high for a block in recent tournament play. The Lady Tornadoes finished the year with a winning season.

After taking the OCIAA Division III volleyball title, the George Baker HS girls team then beat Webutuck in three sets on November 6 for their first Sectional Semifinal Game at the Mount Saint Mary College tournament.

Next for Tuxedo was Pine Plains. The Tornadoes gave up a distinct height advantage, more so when senior outside hitter Emma Meore left the court due to a health issue.

Tuxedo girls were game and fought Pine Plains in the sectional games to near ties, losing in four tough sets 3-1: 23-25, 25-22, 25-22 and 25-18.

Coach Michelle Hines praised the team’s tenacious tournament play.

“We are so proud of these girls,” Hines said. “They never gave up. They fought until the very end. This is what Tuxedo is all about.”

George F. Baker High School Principal Jason Schrammel said the team serves as an inspiration to all Tuxedo students.

“This team’s work ethic is an example for all of our students,” Schrammel said.

“Tuxedo consistently demonstrates its ability to excel with dedication and perseverance. Our team’s Division III volleyball title (the 1st since 2003), and advancement to Class D finals, shows this school can hold its own against other schools in sports.”
