Awesome bar food, the world’s best mac & cheese at Monticello, NY’s The Nugget

On the side came what is totally an entree’ sized portion of the BEST mac and cheese I’ve had in my life. Knock, knock. Did you hear me? The best! You might figure the best would be at a meat and 3 in the South or somewhere. Monticello, NY? Yes! It’s made with what I think is smoked sharp NY white cheddar and topped with orange cheddar. If they froze it and sold it through Wegman’s, they’d be jillionaires, as Woody Guthrie used to say.

Recent New York State eNews & Views:

Fracking: Andrew’s endless stall

The Cuomo folks were at it again last week – pretending that the governor could possibly maybe one day allow fracking in this state. On Friday, Department of Environmental Conservation boss Joe Martens admitted that experts set to review the “health impacts” of fracking (drilling for gas or oil in underground shale) have yet to be chosen. But not to worry; they’ll be picked “soon.”

 

New evaluations for New York State teachers

Teachers and administrators across the state are dealing with a new way of evaluating teacher performance this year; it involves more testing of students and more visits by administrators into classrooms.

No one would seriously create a board to reform the New York Racing Association by filling it with a majority of members from the board of the New York Racing Association. Sadly, it’s no joke. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver used some, or even all, of their picks on the NYRA Reorganization Board to put NYRA veterans on – it bears repeating – the board that’s supposed to fix NYRA.

 

The Department of Environmental Protection says more than 400 items including quartz projectile points, blades and elements of stone tools were found during work on the 153-acre site of the Catskill and Delaware Ultraviolet Light Disinfection Facility in Westchester County. They date back several thousand years to the late Archaic Era and beginning of the Woodland Period and will be given to the historical society that serves Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown.
