In just a few short weeks, Glens Falls native Jeff Mead will replace Jack Walter as the Glens Falls Civic Center's general manager on July 20th.

Soon, people across the nation will be able to try a sip of our own Glens Falls water! Just Beverages is almost ready for production and is currently gearing up to ship their water across the country in a few short weeks. 

North Country Coffee Cafe owner Sue Stone reached out to her customers on Wednesday to thank them for their patronage, recognize all they've done for her since she opened the cafe five years ago, and to deliver some sad news. At the end of August, the coffee shop on South Street will be closing.

The new director of The Hyde Collection, Erin Coe, is also a nationally-acclaimed curator and historian of American art. In celebration of her inauguration as The Hyde's director, Coe will be presenting a lecture next month, in addition to three other events, to accompany the museum's summer exhibit: Homer's America: Selections from the Permanent Collection.

We may still have 5 months or so until snow starts falling again, but our local ski center isn't wasting one second of its off-season. The Post Star has recently reported that West Mountain is installing not one, but two new chairlifts this summer that will help to dramatically improve skiers' experiences come winter.

Delora Moulton of Hudson Falls is a devoted wife and caregiver for her husband, Steven. When you hear her story, though, you realize she is so much more. In a conversation last week, I learned that not only is Delora a visionary and a pioneer -- she is also determined to make one of the region's newest non-profit organizations a success by helping others who are experiencing the same nightmares she has.


When deciding where to get a cup of coffee, one has a choice of many venues from locally-owned shops to national chains. In the midst of this plethora of caffeine dispensaries stands Spektor Coffee Roasters - Glens Falls' newest coffee shop. Spektor, which opened at 140 Glen Street in March, has managed to identify a market demanding a different kind of coffee experience, and is now focused on meeting that demand. 

In the face of regular financial losses, a volunteer advisory committee has been tasked with finding ways to heighten awareness of, and thereby improve revenues for, Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in Queensbury. The Post Star has reported that one of the strategies being considered is re-naming the airport with a more regionally-suggestive moniker.
