It's been a part of the Mid-Hudson Valley skyline since the 1880's and when the "Poughkeepsie Highland Railroad Bridge" opened it was nicknamed "Great Hope". Well now the bridge has great hope once again. The Senate Appropriations Committee approved a $1 million grant for the Walkway Over the Hudson project. The bill still needs to pass the full Senate. The money would be used to transform the bridge into the world's largest pedestrian bridge.  The money would be availalble just in time for next year's celebration marking the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage up the river. Trains first started crossing the bridge in 1889, nearly 20 years after construction started. At that time it was the only bridge over the Hudson River. The bridge was in constant use until 1974, when a fire...

      The Hudson Valley Rail Trail in Highland NY is tucked quietly away between Illinois Mountain and Black Creek, running from the hamlet of Highland west toward New Paltz.  If you are looking for a fun way to spend the afternoon pack up the bikes, roller blades or walking shoes and head out to the "rail trail". The trail is 2.5 miles long and is part of the old New York, New Haven and Hartford Line.  The rail trail can be accessed at New Paltz Road, where the Rotary Club maintains a pavilion with picnic tables and a caboose, or at Tony Williams Park off Riverside Road. The trail is flat, paved and shaded. While at the rail trail take time to enjoy the beauty of Black Creek which can be accessed from the trail.     Coming Event at the Hudson Valley Rail Trail: Highand Rail Trail 8K R...

    Last night Highland Elementary school held the first of the school districts three graduation ceremonies- The fifth grade class (The future Class of 2015) was honored at the Moving Up ceremony. They now move up to the Highland Middle School. Speeches by the Administators and Principals featured quotes from "favorite authors",  Dr Suess and Shel Silverstein. "Oh the Places You will Go" Watching my oldest grandchild, Daniele Erichsen, march the isle to Pomp and Cicumstance, through tears, I thought where does time go. Daniele is pictured here with her Mom, my oldest, Heather. Daniele is a fourth generation Highland student. My Dad, my daughters and I graduated from Highland High School. There is a lot of tradition for us in the Blue and Gold. Her Poppy, my Dad is a World War II vetera...

June 7 from 10-5; Highland New York celebrates Highland Day. This annual event is a street fair. The hamlet closes down Vineyard Avenue for the day. There will be loads of activities for the kids- Don't forget to sign up for fall soccer. The food is exceptional- Mark Elia has his BBQ, Rock N Rolls bakery and other local eateries serve there best.

Here's to you Mom's (and Dad's) who do it all! I was a first generation "Soccer Mom". When I was a child there were no sports for girls in my hometown of Highland NY..urgh! I wanted  so badly to play baseball- The closest I came was on the playground at recess- The boys would let me back up the catcher to get the "get away balls". So when I had daughters and they were able to play softball, soccer and CYO basketball starting at age 8- I was thrilled. I was a stay at home mom so I was recruited to COACH! So, I bought books and videos and attended training. It was the best of times. Today, my oldest granddaughters are following in thier Mom's footsteps- They are really great soccer players. Times have changed though, when Heather, my oldest daughter, was their age the girls went from seas...
