February is here! For those eagerly awaiting warmer days, that’s a good sign and for those who enjoy winter ... even though we haven’t quite had too frigid of one thus far ... the season has surely been a drag.
But keeping it positive, we’ve brought back our “Three Cheers,” putting the focus on three people, businesses and/or organizations who deserve to be highlighted.
Sims and Kirsten Foster
James Beard Award semifinalists were announced last week and topping the list in New York State in the Outstanding Restaurateur category are Sims and Kirsten Harlow Foster, owners of Foster Supply Hospitality.
The award lists several of Foster Supply Hospitality properties for the award, namely the DeBruce, Arnold House Tavern and Kenoza Hall.
Sims and Kirsten have invested a ton of resources in the community, as well as their time and expertise to make the Sullivan Catskills a better place to live, visit and play.
We congratulate them and their incredible staff on this nomination for this prestigious honor, and thank them for what they have and continue to do for Sullivan County.
February isn’t just the month associated with love, but also heart health and each year the WSUL 98.3FM Heart-A-Thon and their legion of volunteers and local businesses who help raise funds that stay and better the health of our community are at it again.
A special kudos and shoutout to those volunteers! If you are out and about and see some hearts for sale, please consider purchasing a few or making a pledge to support the cause.
The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPAA) has classified girls wrestling as an emerging sport and it might one day be a fully sanctioned one.
Judging by their competition at the recent Eastern States Wrestling Classic on SUNY Sullivan’s campus, which is always a premier event featuring the best wrestlers from this region of the United States, as well as the turnout up in Syracuse at the NYSPHSAA’s first girls’ wrestling invitational, we think the sport’s future is bright. A special shoutout to all who competed.
We are in favor of inclusion and are happy to see the sport’s growth.
