Ryan Anglim is reporting in The Daily Mail the "boil water" order in Catskill has been extended. Village officials said Wed., Feb. 25, the emergency declaration will stay in place until at least Fri., Feb. 27. The first water samples submitted to the state Department of Health appeared clean. Under state regulations, two clean water samples must be taken on two separate days before the order can be lifted. A second sample is expected to be submitted today (Thu., Feb. 26). Village trustee James Chewens advised all village residents to “keep boiling your water until you hear otherwise." The order was issued following a water main break on upper Main St., Tuesday. The Department of Public Works repaired the six-inch water main, located near the Sullivan-Teator VFW Post 770 building. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
On February 26, Wave Farm's terrestrial radio station, WGXC 90.7-FM turns 13. It’s a powerful thing to reflect on the last thirteen years of this project. So many people have contributed their voices, their time, their talent, and their dollars to keep this outrageous and unconventional station churning and transmitting, and we are grateful.
In this moment, we find ourselves poised for exciting growth, thanks to a recently expanded staff and Board, new energy, a terrific foundation of stalwart volunteer programmers complemented by rapidly joining new radiomakers. With your help, we can embrace the future with strength and enthusiasm.
We continue to work towards generating enough monthly supporters to secure a reliable base of support to meet the station’s basic operation expenses. Once our goal of $5,000 in monthly support is met, we’ll be able to end traditional pledge drives, and focus on making WGXC even more exceptional.
