In My Humble Opinion

Art teacher Vince Sanborn explained how painter Lenny Dalby is able to utilize a rotating board in order to create works of art while painting with his foot during the opening reception for the SullivanARC exhibit “Expressions 2018.”


Mark your calendars. It’s a “red-letter day” in the Fox household, for I am quite literally at a loss for words. There are reasons for my sudden lack of (audible) commentary, and I’ve spent the past few days doing more listening than talking, causing most of the Upper Delaware River region to heave a collective sigh of relief and take note.

Cathy Daboul, center, surrounded by fellow event committee members, welcomed guests to the Greater Barryville Chamber of Commerce Winter Warm-Up at the Carriage House last Saturday evening.

Déjà vu (all over again)

Webster’s defines it as “a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.” In other words: it’s snowing. Again. The dictionary further states that it can be interpreted as “tedious familiarity” and calls it “disagreeable sameness.” Yeah. What they said.

At first glance, it looked pretty bad, but most of the trunk fell to the side of the trunk.

Milk, bread and eggs

Yep—I’m making my list and checking it twice, because it looks like it’s gonna happen again. Just as New York and Pennsylvania begin to come back online, a second blizzard looms, threatening to complete a “onetwo punch” that none of us deserve. The past few days have been trying for many, but (as most of you know) I rarely complain.

Perched high above the crowd at Bar 360 inside the casino at Resorts World Catskills, the Somerville Brothers played with their band as an appreciative crowd hollered in approval last Friday night.

I've fallen and I can't get up

Remember those words? I sure do, and they’ve come back to haunt me. The expression is so ingrained in pop culture that it’s even a listing in Wikipedia: “a famous catchphrase of the late 1980s based upon a line from a U.S.-based television commercial.” Think Clara Peller’s “Where’s the beef?” but with a broken hip.

There really was standing room only for both of Jonathan Fox’s performances at the Delaware Valley Arts Association’s Salon Series in Narrowsburg, NY last weekend.

Standing room only

Those three words, and the accompanying abbreviation (SRO) are what every performer wants to see posted outside the theatre prior to a performance, even though they might jangle one’s nerves on opening night.

Like a gleaming phoenix rising from the ashes, Resorts World Catskills is ushering in a Sullivan County renaissance.

Let the games begin!

Anticipation was the name of the game over the last few days, as the excitement surrounding Resorts World Catskills (RWC) built to a crescendo and its doors were flung open for the first time last Thursday morning.

Fans showered Bethel’s Shlomo Franklin, center, and his band with love during their appearance last Saturday at Cabernet Franks in Parksville, NY.

Stop! In the name of love…

Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day can be rough, and not just for the single folks out there. If one is in a committed relationship of any kind, there’s an inherent expectation of flowers, candy and jewelry sparkling in the candlelight of romantic dinners being held all over the world on February 14th.

Northeastern Regional Finalist Anastasia Gromova calls the ice rink her “second home,” because she has been skating since the age of two.

Skating on thin ice

As I sit at my desk, the rain spatters against the windowpane, eroding the ice and snow that had built up just a few short days ago. Feeling pensive, I can’t help but reflect on the past week, which was both entertaining and thought provoking—centered, in a way, around water.
