Earlier today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo called on Republican members of New York’s Congressional Delegation to fight for state and local aid in the federal stimulus package, which is expected to be announced this week:

G “I call on all Republicans elected in this state to stand united with the people of the state, encouraging support for New York State. We have about a $14 billion loss of revenue. We have about a $5 billion cost of this COVID virus. We know that we’d have to have drastic budget cuts if we don’t get aid. So I’d ask the Republican congresspeople, put your politics aside. Stand up, call on your colleagues to actually do the right thing and represent the people of the state rather than your political party, and do it as loudly as you play politics for your party. Because if we don’t get state aid from Washington it’s going to be a very bad situation for this state and the people in this state.”

The Governor also provided an update on the recently formed multi-agency task force to combat violations of coronavirus-related regulations at bars and restaurants. The State Liquor Authority and New York State Police Task Force issued 105 violations to establishments downstate on Friday and Saturday. Businesses found in violation of social distancing regulations face fines up to $10,000 per violation, while egregious violations can result in the immediate suspension of their liquor license.

“We have the compliance challenge, especially for young people, especially around bars. I once again ask local governments to do their job. State government has gotten more aggressive. We’ve put together a task force of the State Liquor Authority and the State Police. Over Friday and Saturday night, they did 105 violations. They’ve been focusing on the downstate area, but the 105 are across downstate. They’re Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Nassau, Suffolk. So literally in every county in downstate New York City down. They have had violations. They’re going to be doing additional suspensions that they will do tomorrow.”

ELIZAVILLE – After 19 years of working as a massage therapist, Sandra Buchanan has added C.E.O. to her name. The Columbia County resident recently announced the opening of her own business. The Serenity Wellness Centre Day Spa has taken up residence at 846 Route 82 in Elizaville, NY.

In addition to several therapeutic massages, Buchanan is offering facials, body wraps (seaweed, mud or algae), body scrubs and paraffin treatments. “One of my specialties,” says the owner, “is called myofascial release. This technique works on the fascia, a band of connective tissue that lies over the muscles and can cause pain when tight or knotted. This can be from injury, surgery or just repetitive use of joints and muscles. I bring relief by simply stretching and “unwinding” the fascia. It’s a very effective technique.”

A graduate of Columbia Greene Community College, Buchanan went on to receive a degree in Massage Therapy from the Center for Natural Massage Therapy in Albany. More recently she’s added to her expertise by attending the Hudson Valley School of Advanced Aesthetic Skin Care near New Paltz. She is also a NYS licensed Esthetician.

“I like administering facials,” Buchanan adds. “From cleansing and steaming to toning and moisturizing, the whole process leaves the client relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated. It’s rewarding when a customer leaves feeling so good. ”

The business offers a variety of services including hot stone massage, reflexology and couples massages. It is also one of the few area spas to be covered by Blue Shield of New York insurance. For a complete list of services including Gift Certificate offers, go to http://www.serenitywellnessdayspa.com.

HUDSON — Over 300 runners and walkers had a haunting good time in Hudson on Sunday at the Ghostly Gallop 5K held at Hudson High School.

The race has been held for the past 17 years to help fundraise for the Hudson Area Library, Race Director Gary Sheffer said. This is Sheffer’s first year as race director; he was asked to take on the job by Bob Rasner, the previous director. The event consists of a judging of costumes, a Kid’s Fun Run and a 5K Run, followed by a 5K Walk.

“I’ve run a lot of races in my life. I’ve never organized one, but it seems to have gone well today,” Sheffer said. “I wanted to do this because I really believe in the library.”
