Seeing Greene: breaking bad news

Jan 14, 2010 1:05 am
Dick May's Seeing Greene blog breaks several stories this week, all of them bad news:

*Catskill Mountain Foundation, in Hunter, published the "final" month of their The Catskill Mountain Region Guide monthly magazine, or is scaling back to a smaller size with shorter versions of longer web-based articles in the print version.

*InsideOut magazine (we had noticed their web site has been down several weeks) is also scaling back in Athens. "Publisher/editor Owen Lipstein feels 'uncertain' about the future but is keen to sustain the magazine, perhaps as a quarterly and an on-line periodical," reports May.

*The Union Mills condominium project on Main St. in Catskill is “eighty-five percent complete and on budget,' says Jim Cunliffe, the project’s originator and hands-on manager; but the Long Island investors have declined to commit to supplying the last quarter of projected capital," writes May. So plans there are on hold.
