The chance to make Roscoe the “Ultimate Fishing Town” is winding down. The contest is sponsored by the World Fishing Network, and the first place prize is $25,000 for the community and a half-hour cable TV show.

It also means national exposure and more tourism as anglers from around the world decide to “check out the ultimate place to fish.” Voting ends at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Sullivan County Manager David Fanslau has been urging county residents and visitors to support the county’s tourism and economy by voting in the online contest.

Folks can vote four times each day (once each in specific blocks of time) — for every email address you have. Go to

Fanslau notes that Roscoe — known as “Trout Town, USA” — is considered the birthplace of American dry fly fishing, developed by Theodore Gordon and his followers. If Roscoe wins, it will use some of the money to improve fishing access.

The 4-H E-Scrap is back

The Sullivan County 4-H Program is bringing back its electronics scrap recycling event on Friday and Saturday. And it’s free.

Of course, donations are welcome, at a suggested $5 per carload for residents and $20 for businesses and organizations.

Participants can be assured of proper disposal of e-waste and data security — hard drives will be shredded. Assistance is available for unloading equipment, and donations are tax-deductible.

Friday’s E-Scrap will collect from businesses, schools, municipalities and institutions from noon to 4 p.m. On Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can bring home electronics.

Collection will be at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.

If you want to dump equipment from a business or organization, you must pre-register by calling Bob Travers at Advanced Recovery, 858-8809 or e-mailing before the event.

For information, call Marylin at 292-6180. Event flyers are available at

Alzheimer’s workshop set

Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Health Information Library and Adult Day Care program will co-host a free community workshop, “Making Sense of Challenging Behavior.”

The workshop, presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, will be from 2 to 3 p.m. June 14 in Boardroom A at CRMC’s main campus at 68 Harris-Bushville Road in Harris.

Licensed clinical social worker Donna Davis, a care consultant for the Alzheimer’s Association, will lead the discussion on how Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can cause a person to act in different and unpredictable ways.

Some individuals become anxious or aggressive; others repeat certain questions or gestures and many misinterpret what they hear.

These types of behaviors can lead to misunderstanding, frustration and tension, particularly between the person with dementia and the caregiver.

The workshop will offer potential solutions and new ways to respond, decrease stress and improve the experience of caregiving.

Preregistration is required. For information or to register, call the Alzheimer’s Association at 794-3774.
