The Sports Enthusiast

The easiest aspect of Christmas shopping for a sports enthusiast (whether it be a spouse, significant other, best friend, brother, sister, boss, whomever), is that there are so many toys and so much equipment on the sports market.

The smart approach is to […]

In the Holiday Spirit

Just a few miles from the Village of Rhinebeck, NY, is The CENTER For Performing Arts – a local theatre whose actors are eager to spread some holiday cheer through their annual presentation of Charles Dicken’s classic, A Christmas Carol.

The production, which […]

Community Traditions Continue

Brightly-colored poinsettias fill the greenhouse. Trees cover the lawn. Holiday music brings the sounds of joyful and industrious elves tying and decorating wreaths, bows, bows, and more bows, and of course the cheese, milk, and eggnog! Welcome to a shopping experience at […]

The Spirit of Giving

In a year marred with tragedy, mountains of anxiety and a landslide of mass confusion, perhaps the most enduring notion of 2020 has been humankind’s uncanny ability to combat chaos with compassion. As fear and uncertainty grew at an historic rate this […]

Dutchess County sees Recent Rise in Auto Crime

A string of auto-related crime has broken out recently as The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a series of vehicle break-ins that have occurred in the Town of Pleasant Valley and the Town of LaGrange during the overnight hours as well as some recent thefts of high-end automobiles.

Ode to an Icon: Millerton’s Moviehouse Seeks New Stewardship

While the announcement that Millerton’s Moviehouse — the village’s longstanding cinema and cultural epicenter — will be seeking new ownership in the coming months may seem like the appropriate capstone to 2020, there is a silver lining. That unique sense of hopeful optimism is represented in the spirit of owner [...]

Post Office Pentimento

-by the Hillsdale Historians A pentimento, in painting, is "the presence or emergence of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over." Even the greats, like Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and Titian, revised their paintings to eliminate figures, reposition compositional elements, or change backgrounds. The original elements, the pentimenti, survive in the paintings like ghosts, hidden and detectible only by modern X-rays and infrared reflectography. Pentimenti can also be detected in buildings, notably in older structures that have [...]

Community Rallies to Keep the Spirit of Hudson’s Winter Walk Alive in 2020

What was once one of Columbia County’s biggest block parties, Hudson New York’s beloved Winter Walk has evolved into the area’s most festive event of the year and crucially, the busiest night for many local shops and restaurants. For the past two decades, Hudson Hall at the Hudson Opera House has produced Winter Walk and despite this year’s challenges, are looking to putting on the titular event once again as safely as possible. This year, leaders at Hudson Hall are turning to [...]

Jessie’s Recipe

December 2020 Recipe – Meyer Lemon Upside-down Cake

Upside-down cake is one of my all-time favorites to bake due to its stunning good looks, its easy-peasy assembly, and its scrumptious caramelized fruit topping. Perhaps the most famous of the upside-down cakes is that of the pineapple variety (and truth be told, I’ve actually never taken a stab at one), but I have made them with bananas, peaches, sour cherries, and plums – to name a few. All are delicious and all basically call for the same easy steps: melt butter [...]

Wine of the Week

The Perfect Thanksgiving Wine

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!! Must. Have. Wine. My advice? Gobble up Riesling and Pinot Noir. Riesling has been called the perfect Thanksgiving wine because it goes so well with so many different flavors, and all of our feasts include lots of those! A nice, dry Riesling is best, but one with a bit of residual sugar is nice, too. For red, a Pinot Noir is the best choice for the same reason. It won't overpower the subtle flavors from whatever starters you serve [...]
