Note to Beacon Board of Education: Get Parents Input Online

Recently I received a call from Superintendent Aefsky concerning my petition regarding the possible re-hiring of a teacher at Sargent Elementary School.

She informed me that if a teacher is let go because of budget cuts, that the school was legally obligated to re-offer the position (for up to seven years) should it once again become available.

"Well," I said, " supposing this laid-off teacher was incompetent? Are we still required to…

think a red bike with thin tires was solen today.

My friend asked me to post this for her. If you parked your red bike with thin tires by the piers, and it is no longer there, contact the MTA police.

She told me this person took a long, long time to "unlock" the bike and then put it in a red van. She went to the MTA police and gave them evidence for you and but doesn't want her name posted.

Issues concerning Beacon Theater Benefit

I was listening to WAMC today and its feature about the revitalization of old theaters in the Hudson Valley. The Beacon Theater renovation, of course, was part of the mix.

Camping in New York: Not so rough

By Andrea Sachs

Washington Post Staff Writer

Friday, September 10, 2010; 11:22 AM

Sitting around the crackling fire in a Hudson Valley campsite, I proudly surveyed my forested domain from the throne of a canvas chair. My tent was perfectly assembled and moodily lit by a hanging lantern. On the two-burner gas stove, the cheese was melting on a veggie burger, while a hash of peas and corn heated up in a pot. A sweet potato slowly… Continue

Bow String Truss sections from the Tioronda Bridge

So. The Tioronda Bridge truss sections are stacked against the fence of the Beacon Recycling Center and elicits, I'll assume, genuine concern.. "what a shame",.. A "pity." The iron sections, have been rusting away for years, even prior to the bridge being dismantled a few years ago. Could it have been saved?

Yes. But that's water over the dam, so to…
