Michael Meeropol: Pete Seeger Was Great Because Of Not In Spite Of His Politics

Like many in the Hudson Valley, I took the loss of Pete Seeger personally.  He was a great national and international figure having received over 20 honors and awards including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award, the Harvard Arts Medal, the Kennedy Center Honor and been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.   For us who lived in and near Beacon, NY where he had lived for 65 years, he was a local hero.  The sloop Clearwater and the attention it brought to the Hudson River actually led to an actual clean-up of terrible pollution.  Now, the river can be fished and it’s safe for swimming.

Job Market Slightly Better Past Seven Days

Next-Act of Colonie's Dan Moran sees the numbers reflecting continued strength and employer confidence.    “ We had a couple of good weeks of run-up. We had kind of a flat week, now we're coming back up a little higher again. It's showing a new confidence in the employment market, and that's a good thing.”

Keith Strudler: Olympic Games Are Not Quite Ready

So what if you threw a party, and no one came? Ask Vladimir Putin about that. He’s got a big old party going on right now in Sochi, a term that now invokes sentiment far beyond its Olympic ideal. In now a matter of hours, Sochi will begin its two weeks hosting the Winter Olympic Games, an event that’s been so long in the making it feels like it should already be over.

Massachusetts has launched an initiative to reduce recidivism by signing a contract for the largest pay-for-success financial investment in the country.  The goal is to improve the lives of nearly 400 at-risk youth in western Massachusetts, reduce crime, and save taxpayers money.

Massachusetts will pay millions of dollars to Roca if the non-profit organization succeeds in reducing the number of days young men referred to its program spend in jail. The greater the success, the higher the payments – up to $27 million.
