Local Agencies Discuss Affordability As Todd Leaves SHARP &
Kibe Takes Over
A recent talk with the heads of two local not-for-profits that
provide for the region’s affordable housing needs showed
that, no matter the arguments rising in Woodstock around the 63-unit
Woodstock Commons proposal by Rural Ulster Preservation Corporation
(RUPCO) of Kingston, currently seeking approval from that town’s
planning board, the situation for such projects is becoming increasingly
dire and what’s offered now may not be offered anytime in
the foreseeable future if turned down.

So reads a sign in the beam of my flashlight as
I head into the woods of Accord. A few zombies scurry
about in the dark, in felt fedoras and black coats;
twirls of flapping side curls (payos) framing ghoulish
faces. A crossbow leans against a tree, and I ask
a zombie what it’s for. “Gotta shoot
zombie heart with a double bacon cheeseburger,”
he deadpans, as the glue loosens on his left payot.
It drops to the dirt. “Dairy and meat,”
he says, “double non-kosher and corporate
to boot.” A
pretty zombie in a pert yellow suit, Melissa Leo,
well-known actress and Stone Ridge resident, comes
out of the shadows.
