The Village of Castleton-on-Hudson will be hosting Repair Cafe at the Village Hall, 85 South Main Street, on Saturday, July 15, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Bring your beloved but broken item and volunteers will do their best to fix it for free.

I have been spending an enormous amount of time doing research and writing grants for the Village. I enjoy it, and it has garnered compliments from reviewers, but unfortunately no actual $ awards to date. Yesterday was a demoralizing day, so I think I'll pick myself up, dust myself off,  draw a cartoon, and move on.

About the last post, apparently it was open & shut guilty. And, I continue to be revolted by the defense attorney.

I've been finding the quest I've been on for a year - getting access to the Hudson River for the village -- very demoralizing. First, all the grants I've written have come to nothing except compliments from the state (about how excellent the writing was). I'm changing my focus from "keep your word & build us a bridge" to "just open the gate because it's equitable." I'm not very optimistic about that approach either.

Riveted by this trial. Maybe because I can't stand rich entitled punks who are enabled by their foolish families. Also because I've found the defense attorney repugnant ever since she sported an offensive Halloween costume at a party, and was in the DA's office, prosecuting the shooting at UAlbany in the 1990s. And most importantly, I know I am not on the jury hearing the arguments (and not hearing some evidence that is public) but it seems open & shut guilty to me.
