Actor, Cary Elwes, was recently in the region for an event with Northshire Bookstore which involved a screening of the 1987 movie, The Princess Bride, and a discussion of the new book As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride which Elwes has co-written with Joe Layden. (The book also boasts a forward by director, Rob Reiner.)
Joe Donahue caught up with Elwes at this event and in this interview they discuss on set injuries, the re-emergence of the film almost a decade after it was released, and Elwes proves quite a good mimic.
A collaboration of hospitals and health care systems is implementing a state-of-the-art, high-speed telemedicine network across New York State’s northern tier.
The Adirondack Champlain Telemedicine Information Network, known as ACTION, has been in the works for several years. It will link hospitals and health centers in New York and Vermont. Plattsburgh’s CVPH Medical Center is the lead health care provider for the system, which President Stephens Mundy explained includes 8 hospitals and 40 primary care facilities across 8 counties.
