ready E to take flight?

By Dan Hust agles. The word itself is exciting. Try seeing them in person, though, and you understand how excitement turns into exhilaration. From January to March, we’re home base for up to 200 bald eagles (and the occasional golden eagle). Which means you’re virtually guaranteed to spot one or more on any visit to Sullivan County’s Catskills, where eagles enjoy the winter as much as the rest of us enjoy the summer! But you’ve got to know where to look, and that’s the specialty of some pretty hyped-up volunteers at the Delaware Highlands Conservancy. Every year at this time, they don their jackets and boots and head out to where the eagles are hunting, fishing, flying and roosting. But while they ensure the eagles aren’t unduly disturbed, they’re really there for you. continued on next page

WHERE TO LAND

PHOTO COPYRIGHT STEPHEN DAVIS

Have a question about eagles’ behavior? They know the answer. Have an urge to see eagles up close? They have the binoculars (and the tour guides!). Have a desire to help preserve and protect this magnificent but vulnerable species? They’ve got the way how. First thing to do is visit the Conservancy’s Winter Field Office. Online: www.delawarehighlands.org/eagles (Facebook, too!). By phone: 845-583-1010 or 570-226-3164. In person: 176 Scenic Drive, Lackawaxen, PA (just across the famous Roebling Bridge spanning the Delaware River near Sullivan County’s Barryville). Hours are 12-3 p.m. every Friday, and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday (or by appointment). There you’ll find info on spotting locations, the eagles’ habitat and lifecycle, proper viewing etiquette, and the skinny on guided tours in heated buses! If you decide to head out on your own, please remember: Don’t get close to the eagles – they’re isolationists by nature (pun intended!) Keep quiet, and don’t let pets or kids run around Dress warmly and in layers Expect snow, ice, mud and cold to be part of the experience (though often the viewing locations have convenient parking and sheltered blinds) Pull completely off any public roads and park only in designated spots Be patient – we’ve got eagles aplenty, but they run their own show!

o you’re visiting Sullivan County, and you want to know where to eat? As the saying goes, when in Rome, go where the Romans go. And so, when in Sullivan County, go where the locals go. So where is it the locals are going these days? Just a stone’s throw away from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Kauneonga Lake is fast becoming a culinary hotspot. It’s located smack-dab in the center of the county. And in the center of Kauneonga Lake is The Local Table and Tap. The Local is the new kid on the block – it opened in early June – but it’s local in more than just the name. It is its owners and chefs Kevin McElroy and Rich Watt, both county residents, both raised locally, who have both lived in various locales around the country but came back to Sullivan County to raise their families.

through a friend threw them together, the duo bonded over a common passion for food. Good food. Simple food. Food that they can share with their friends and neighbors. The result is a menu that blends comfort foods such as mac-and-cheese and a burger with parmesan artichoke-crusted chicken and a Vietnamese-style roast pork sandwich. The flavor profiles are complex, but the food isn’t. As McElroy explains, their restaurant is “an American bistro pub meets casual fine dining.” “It’s where fish and chips meets tuna nicoise,” Watt adds. Add to that a growing number of craft beers available not just to drink but incorporated into their food, and you have the Local’s approach to dining. It’s about accessibility, not exclusivity. With Watt hailing from Mountaindale, McElroy from Callicoon, they opted to meet in the middle in Kauneonga Lake, drawn to the growing community both because of its reputation as the center of the culinary world in Sullivan County and its proximity to the water.

Guests can also opt to sit on the back deck and listen to the waves lapping against the shore (in the summer months, of course). The main dining room remains open yearround, because once again the Local is local in more than just its name. McElroy and Watt have enjoyed the crowds that poured into their restaurant their first summer, but they’re in it for the long haul. That means a restaurant that’s a place for visitors and residents alike. Watt and McElroy focus on turning quality, simple ingredients into something extraordinary. “We’re not inventing food here,” McElroy says. “It’s the idea of just keeping it very simple because sometimes the tastiest things are the most simple.” Want to visit the Local Table and Tap?

where the champions seek ultimate victory s part of its ongoing 50th anniversary celebration, SUNY Sullivan will once again play host to the NJCAA Division III Men’s Basketball National Tournament on March 13, 14, and 15, 2014. This is also part of the college’s agreement with the NJCAA to host the tournament at least through 2016 – a bid that the college won last year. “Having this tournament here has been great for SUNY Sullivan,” says Chris DePew, SUNY Sullivan’s Director of Athletics and the tournament’s Executive Director. “Our strong athletics program is a point of pride at the college and reflects our commitment to sportsmanship, academics, and the positive growth of our student athletes and our community. The tournament encapsulates all of these things, not just for our school, but for all of the schools involved, and puts these shared values in the national spotlight.” The NJCAA tournament brings the country’s best DIII teams, their fans, families, and friends to Sullivan County once a year for

what has become an anticipated event by the college and Sullivan County community. The weekend attracts thousands of people to Loch Sheldrake, NY from as far afield as Texas, Minnesota, and up and down the East Coast. Visiting teams will once again be hosted by the Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, while all games will take place in the college’s Paul Gerry Fieldhouse in Loch Sheldrake. Ticket packages and single-game passes will be made available soon through the SUNY Sullivan Athletics Department. In its 50-year history, the SUNY Sullivan Generals have won four national titles in Men’s Basketball. They currently hold the record for most tournament appearances and entered this season ranked #2 in the DIII National Top 10 poll. The college has produced professional and NCAA Division 1 players, and even a Harlem Globetrotter. During this year’s WINTER 2014


National Tournament, SUNY Sullivan will be opening the SUNY Sullivan Generals Athletics Hall of Fame. With the 50th Anniversary as a fitting platform, the college will induct its first class representing athletes and boosters from the college’s five decades. The induction ceremony will be held on campus during championship weekend. The Hall of Fame will be housed in the college’s Paul Gerry Fieldhouse.
