Catskill Mountain's Stagecoach Run Art Festival Returns July 1 and 2

FRANKLIN — After being forced to postpone this storied event due to the pandemic, organizers are thrilled to announce that the Stagecoach Run Art Festival is back in 2023, with more than 20 locations and 50+ artists.

This self-guided tour of art in venues throughout the Franklin and Delhi area has won awards for its positive impact on tourism and the tens of thousands of dollars it has brought to the local economy. Many artists who have moved deep into the Catskills are participating in 2023 for the first time.

Franklin has become a popular destination for visitors thanks to being home to the Franklin Stage, Kabinett and Kammer, the shop owned by well known artist/author Sean Scherer, fashion designer Gary Graham of GaryGraham422 (and runner up of 2021's Making the Cut), and interior designer Meg Lavalette, whose LAVA Atelier in the village reflects the sophisticated design sense which has led to features on her work in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal as well as several design magazines.

The Tulip and Rose restaurant offers international cuisine, Yokel offers down home comfort food for breakfast and lunch. The newly opened Good Eats epicurean market specializes in gourmet cheese and will soon feature a fine selection of wine and craft beers. The nearby towns of Delhi and Oneonta offer dozens of dining options.

It's a big lift to restart an event like the Stagecoach Run. We'd love your help getting the word out to make this our most successful year ever.

Understand Your Financial Situation Before Cosigning Your Child’s Loan

As your child heads off to college or starts life as an independent young adult, he or she will likely face new financial responsibilities, such as a car purchase, rent or college tuition payments. Given their lack of credit history, it may be difficult for them to obtain a loan without a parent or another adult cosigning the loan. Your natural inclination may be to help them out and sign the dotted line, but before you do, make sure you’re clear on the terms of the loan and what it may mean for your finances. 

Cosign with your eyes wide open

Even though you may not consider it “your loan” if you cosign, lenders will identify you as one of the borrowers. That means you may be at risk if different circumstances arise. Keep in mind:

  • If any of the balance remains unpaid by the borrower (in this scenario, your child), you as the cosigner will be required to repay it. 

  • If your child defaults or even misses one or two payments, it can damage your credit record.

  • Even without a default, other lenders may look on the cosigned loan as an additional liability you will need to pay, which could also affect your credit record.

  • In some states, the creditor has the right to collect payment from you, as the cosigner, without first trying to collect from your child  

  •  If you were to pass away, it could trigger “auto default” provisions in the loan contract. This would require your child to immediately pay the debt. Regulators discourage this practice, but it still exists in some loan agreements.

Steps to protect your position

 Fortunately, there are often alternatives to cosigning a loan. For example, if your child is enrolled in college, they may be eligible for federal student loans or financial aid. Another option, if you can afford it, may be to lend your child money directly – thereby forgoing the paperwork and stipulations introduced by a third-party lender. If you decide to take this action, make sure you and your child have a clear and consistent understanding of the terms of the loan, including a repayment schedule that he or she will be accountable for sticking to.

If you do decide to cosign a loan, take steps to help protect yourself: 

  • Read the fine print and fully understand the terms of the loan and the expectations of the lender.

  • Avoid pledging property, such as a car, to secure the loans as it could create additional risk.

  • Arrange to receive duplicate copies of all paperwork and ensure you have complete online access to the account so you can stay on top of your child’s record of repayment.

In short, treat the situation with the same diligence that you would if you were borrowing money yourself. Do what you can to ensure sure your potential act of generosity doesn’t impair your ability to obtain credit in the future.

Bassett Healthcare Network and Hartwick College Launch Joint Nursing Degree Incentive Program

Cooperstown, NY - Bassett Healthcare Network announced today that it is launching a joint endeavor with Hartwick College to provide Bassett employees with substantial tuition discounts when they pursue degrees in nursing and nursing education. Hartwick College’s Master of Science in Nursing Education, Certificate of Advanced Study in Nursing Education, and the Accelerated (two-year) BS in Nursing will be available to Bassett employees at a 30% tuition discount.


“We deeply appreciate our nurses and encourage them to expand their knowledge,” said Dr. Tommy Ibrahim, President & CEO of Bassett Healthcare Network. “This partnership between Bassett Healthcare Network and Hartwick College provides a great incentive to members of the Bassett team interested in advancing their careers in nursing and nursing education and benefits our patients. We hope many will participate.”


"Hartwick College is deeply committed to positively impacting the region in which it sits,” said Darren Reisberg, President of Hartwick College. “This new joint endeavor with Bassett Healthcare Network, leveraging Hartwick's longstanding eminence in nursing and addressing such a critical need, is a tangible example of this commitment." 


Bassett Healthcare Network and Hartwick College have a long history of partnership in higher learning for nursing and nursing education students. In the late 1940s, Bassett established a four-year nursing program, with two years of didactic training at Hartwick College, followed by one year of practical training at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, and nine months of training at Columbia University in New York City.


As a way of dealing with the ongoing nursing shortage in rural areas, Bassett’s Partnership for Nursing Opportunities (PNO) was created in 2001 as a joint venture with Hartwick College and SUNY Delhi. The program allowed nurses to pursue an associate or bachelor’s degree while continuing to work, with Bassett paying the tuition in full. Graduating nurses committed to one year of full-time employment within the Bassett system for each year of tuition support. By 2011, the PNO program had helped more than 100 nurses earn RN degrees from SUNY Delhi or BSN degrees from Hartwick College. Many chose to stay within Bassett Healthcare Network after fulfilling their PNO obligation.


In 2018, Bassett and Hartwick created the Academic Practice Partnership, which began offering simulation labs to registered nurses completing their Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) education. This partnership has evolved to include a variety of new educational offerings to Bassett employees and to create pathways to increase the number of registered nurses practicing in the Bassett Healthcare Network. Bassett and Hartwick are launching simulation labs with first-year Bassett medical and surgical residents and nursing students, as well as exploring ways to expand the SANE learning experience through simulation.


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 190,470 registered nurses were employed in New York State as of May 2022. Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow six percent from 2021 to 2031. Nationwide, about 203,200 openings for registered nurses are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force.


This seemingly perpetual shortage is exacerbated by the shortage of nursing educators. According to Hannover Research (2018), “Faculty shortages severely limit nursing schools’ abilities to accommodate incoming students and thousands of qualified applicants are turned away from both baccalaureate and graduate programs. This places additional strain on the healthcare field where demand for professional registered nurses continued to grow.”


“In a field as dynamic as nursing, we are committed to educating the educators, and equipping our nurses with ongoing opportunities to increase their knowledge,” said Angela Belmont, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive at Bassett Healthcare Network. “This opportunity to learn and grow benefits not only Bassett employees, but our patients and our communities as well.”


For more information about the tuition incentive program for Bassett employees, contact: Loretta Mosher MSN, RN, CEN, NPD-BCDirector of Nursing Education, Professional Practice and Development at

Bassett Resident Physicians and Hartwick Nursing Students Build Teamwork with First Joint Simulation Lab

Cooperstown, N.Y. – Bassett Healthcare Network, in conjunction with Hartwick College, announced today that the two institutions are launching joint simulation labs for first-year Bassett residents and nursing students. This is the first time Bassett residents are partnering with Hartwick nursing students in simulation labs. 


23 first-year resident physicians from Bassett Medical Center Graduate Medical Education (GME) Programs (Internal Medicine, General Surgery and Transitional Year) will work together with summer nursing students from Hartwick, St. Elizabeth's College of Nursing, SUNY Morrisville, and SUNY Delhi.


The group will participate in hands-on training, observation and debriefing as they rotate through three clinical simulations: Transitions of Care/Safe Effective Handoff, Emergent Situations, and Patient/Family Communication. The Clark Nursing Simulation Lab at Hartwick College will be the site of the exercise.


“Teamwork is the essential foundation for the best patient care. These collaborative simulation labs for a new generation of doctors and nurses build team thinking and hone their practice,” said Dr. Tommy Ibrahim, President & CEO of Bassett Healthcare Network. “We extend our thanks to the professionals who built this exceptional program and enthusiastically support the participation of the nursing students and our residents.”


"We are very excited to be partnering with Bassett in this interdisciplinary simulation event,” said Patricia Grust, PhD, RN, CLNC, Chair and Clinical Associate Professor, Nursing Department, Hartwick College. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to integrate the perspectives of medicine and nursing in a variety of realistic and challenging scenarios that support an optimal healthcare experience and outcomes for the individual, family, and members of the healthcare team."


We embarked on this alliance with Hartwick College because simulation is a valuable tool for training nurses and physicians in a variety of settings,” said Jill Stoecklin, Bassett’s Administrative Director of Medical Education & the Medical School. “For simulations to be most effective, it is important for nurses and physicians to create a collaborative partnership. By doing so, we all learn from each other’s experiences and perspectives to provide optimal patient care.”


“Bassett and Hartwick working together not only furthers the education of resident physicians and student nurses – it also has a positive impact on the communities we serve by ensuring the continuation of the highest level of patient care that Bassett is known for,” said Angela Belmont, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive at Bassett Healthcare Network.


Bassett and Hartwick professionals worked together to plan and implement the event and will be participating in the simulations as facilitators. They are:  


Hartwick College:


Dr. Patricia Grust – Clinical Associate Professor and Department Chair, Nursing


Erica Holoquist, RN – Nursing Laboratory Coordinator


John Janitz, RN - Nursing Lab Instructional Specialist


Bassett Medical Center:


Dr. Russell Moore – Senior Attending Physician, Internal Medicine Residency Program Director


Dr. Erik Riesenfeld – Senior Attending Physician, Transitional Year Residency Program Director


Dr. Joon Shim – Senior Attending Physician, General Surgery Residency Program Director


Tareq Issa, RN – Nurse Educator, Active Learning Center


Nancy Morris, RN – Simulation Lab Clinical Educator, Active Learning Center


Jill Stoecklin – Administrative Director, Medical Education & Medical School

Bassett and Hartwick’s simulation lab collaboration comes on the heels of their recently announced joint endeavor to provide Bassett employees with substantial tuition discounts when they pursue degrees in nursing and nursing education at Hartwick College. Both programs reflect a shared priority to increase the number of registered nurses and healthcare professionals practicing in Bassett’s rural service area.

Air Quality Hinders Mountain Biking, But Not Camaraderie at ASF's Latest WIM Event

Due to the poor air quality the Canadian wildfires brought to the Catskills, the Adaptive Sports Foundation’s (ASF) Warriors in Motion (WIM) mountain biking program featured less biking as much as originally planned. Instead, the three-day event featured yoga, games and stress reduction techniques. 


Five U.S. military veterans met with ASF staff and volunteers at noon this past Tuesday at the Gwen Allard Adaptive Sports Center to share a lunch together and to get fitted for their bikes and equipment. Program manager Tony Vasile gave a quick tutorial on how to safely operate a mountain bike before he led the WIM group onto the ASF shuttle bus and headed out to Elm Ridge in East Windham. The group ventured into the woods and rode on Elm Ridge’s Warm-Up Loop for its only ride of the week. After they finished, the veterans left to check into their hotels before returning to the ASF lodge for dinner.


Wednesday’s Air Quality Index (AQI) was above 170, and an AQI of above 150 is deemed to be unhealthy. The ASF decided that it would be best not to mountain bike and exercise outdoors that day. Instead, the warriors and volunteers began their day going out to breakfast together at the Windham Diner. After a good meal to start the morning, the group then ventured to Mountain Breeze Yoga to stretch their bodies and clear their minds with a yoga session and sound therapy. The veterans then returned to the ASF Lodge to play some cards and to compete in a friendly cornhole competition before having dinner at 5 p.m.


Unfortunately, Thursday’s AQI was close to 200, causing the veterans and volunteers to remain inside again in the ASF lodge. Vasile led a yoga session and a meditation session in the morning before the warriors ate lunch and departed.


“I enjoy myself every time I visit ASF. The biggest thing that happened this week specifically was that we were able to put our mind to the muscle, and not the other way around,” warrior Erik Morales-Goroshko said. “Usually we muscle through an activity, but doing yoga and meditation this week was really good for my mental health.”


The ASF’s Warriors in Motion program provides participating injured United States servicemen and women with a basic knowledge and practice of wellness and the importance of lifelong healthy living.  Each event includes adaptive sports and nutrition instruction, as well as other healthful practices such as yoga and stress reduction techniques. ASF views the time that veterans spend together as an essential part of their healing, so the foundation makes sure that there are periods of downtime that the participants can use to connect with each other. All WIM programs are goal-oriented and empower the warrior to take charge of their own fitness and wellness.


The ASF’s next WIM event will take a small group of veterans into the woods for a backpacking/camping trip, and it will take place on June 20-22. This will be the first fully outdoors trip the ASF has hosted since the summer of 2021. Thanks to generous donations given to the organization, the Adaptive Sports Foundation will be able to provide backpacks, camping supplies, water bottles, all meals, snacks, water, sports drinks, sunscreen, bug spray, ponchos (if necessary) and trail maps for the upcoming event.

Hartwick College Names Bryan Gross as New Vice President for Enrollment Management

Hartwick President Darren Reisberg has named Bryan Gross as the College’s new vice president for enrollment management, effective June 21.  

In his new position, Gross will lead innovative strategies to enhance the quality and diversity of the College’s enrollment management and financial aid optimization plans. One of his primary responsibilities will be to develop partnerships locally, nationally and internationally that strengthen the College’s position in the market and lead to positive college-going rates and enrollment outcomes.

“Throughout his career, Bryan has demonstrated that he has the knowledge, skills, creativity and attitude to drive enrollment success,” said President Darren Reisberg. “His experience will serve Hartwick extremely well as we navigate the opportunities and challenges of the increasingly complex enrollment landscape.”

Gross most recently served as vice president of revenue planning and institutional positioning at 3 Enrollment Marketing, Inc., an enrollment and retention solutions and services provider. 

Prior to his role at 3E, Gross served as vice president for enrollment management and marketing, and as interim vice president of student affairs at Western New England University in Springfield, MA. Before that, he was the associate vice president of enrollment management at St. John’s University in Queens, NY. and associate vice president of admissions, dean of admissions, and director of international admissions at the University of Bridgeport, Bridgeport, CT. 

“Beyond the breathtaking beauty of the campus, what attracted me to Hartwick was the bold leadership of President Reisberg,” said Gross. “He and his leadership team understand what is needed to succeed in today’s competitive enrollment landscape, and I have no doubt that by working together, we will do just that. I am especially inspired by the HartLand Promise, which will allow even more deserving students to afford a Hartwick education.”

A national and international thought leader, Gross is a regular presenter, contributor and researcher to articles and workshops on enrollment management, leadership and collaboration, student belonging, international student mobility, and financial aid. He has been a co-principal investigator for National Science Foundation grants and has served as an executive board member and treasurer of the American International Recruitment Council. 

Gross earned a doctorate in organizational change and leadership from the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. His dissertation examined how collaboration among senior higher education leaders can facilitate positive revenue generation at regional and private institutions. Gross also holds a master’s degree from Springfield College and a bachelor’s degree from The Pennsylvania State University.
