In Our Opinion: Cheers

To efforts to fund a digital projector for the Wieting Theater in Worcester. 

The historic 1910 theater was built and endowed as a trust to the Worcester community by Helen Wieting. It has served the community as a gathering place, hosting local theater performances and films, as well as housing the local library. 

The all-volunteer Wieting Memorial Association is attempting to raise money to purchase equipment to enable the theater to continue showing movies. 

“If we don’t keep that building going, the town is going to die,” Otsego County Rep. Don Lindberg told The Daily Star. 

We wish the organization success in its fund drive and hope the theater can continue serving the Worcester area for many more years to come. 

 

To a recent weekend of free fishing held statewide. 

Free Fishing Days is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative, which includes reducing license fees and improving access for fishing and hunting. The weekend included fishing clinics at state parks to instruct novice anglers in the sport. 

“New York truly has some of the best fishing spots on the globe,” Cuomo said in a media release. “We want everyone to get out and experience these tremendous recreational opportunities this summer.”

We’re extremely lucky to live in an area with some of the best fishing in the state. Roscoe, just across the Delaware County border into Sullivan County, is known as “Trout Town USA” and draws fly-fishing enthusiasts from far and wide. 

We hope that many people took advantage of this opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.
