I was most impressed today, while listening to the WGHQ Kingston Community Radio station. Mayor James Sottile during his guest appearance, made a most commendable statement, as it relates to the recently elected Republican Town of Ulster Supervisor, Mr. James Quigley. Mayor's comments reflected," How he is looking forward to a partnership in working with Mr. Quigley on behalf of Ulster County, the City of Kingston and the People. " This statement represents two Leaders of different political parties that are willing to come together and work on issues, and solutions that could save money, increase employment, and build the economic growth and development we need for our future.
I would also like to congratulate Walter Maxwell and the Feel Good Friday regulars for a superior performance in raising over $3,000 today on the KCR ra-dio-thon. Kingston Community Radio is an important part of the community, interviewing community leaders and taking calls from the listeners. Today there was a Common Goal in Working Together to raise funds so Kingston Community Radio remains on the air. KUDOS to a job well done and to all of the people that donated to this wonderful cause.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish a very Happy Birthday today, to an exceptional friend of mine over the last 30 years, Mr. Leonard Walker. Leonard Walker has given back to his community for more years than you can imagine. He has been a true friend of the family and so respected by my father the late James Wells. Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation that I felt in my heart, when Leonard spoke at my fathers funeral church service in September 2009. I will never forget his words of wisdom and the compassion he had for my father. Leonard worked for my father for many years and they developed a bond that was exceptional.
Happy Birthday today to my dear friend Leonard Walker.
Wishing you many more in the years ahead.
Love and Best Wishes from the Jacobs family.

I am extending a very Happy New Year to my viewers and suggest that everyone realize the importance of what the New Year 2010 will mean to them. Jacobs Live has been on tour over the last week attending many community festivities and hosting my Channel 23 Public Access Happy New Year show. I was privileged to have as my guest this past week, Mr. Edward Gaddy, Chairman of the Conservative Party in Ulster County. Ed is a wealth of knowledge and he does his homework, recognizing the importance of giving back to his community. Ed and Imre Beke also host a weekly radio show, RITE TIME RADIO on WKNY every Friday evening from
6:00 PM-7:00 PM. Tune in for a great show with Imre and Ed.
January 1st, 2010 I attended the Kingston New York Common Council Organizational Meeting hosted at City Hall. The meeting was well attended by many area dignitaries and community members. The room was filled with a flare of new beginnings and Voices of Praise from the Pointe of Praise Church gave an outstanding performance that left you spellbound. It was simply magnificent. The Honorable Judge Ball administered the oath of office and Mr. James Noble, Alderman At Large commented, "that he is optimistic that council members will be able to work with Mayor Sottile to address problems that are in the horizon for 2010".
Moving on to Saturday January 2, 2010 at 11:00 AM, I had the privilege to attend the administering of the Oath of Office to Mr. Donald Williams at the Ulster County Courthouse. Standing room only filled the courthouse and it was a day to remember in the City of Kingston. Many area judges and dignitaries filled the room in celebration of Mr. Donald Williams and his accomplishments. At the end of the ceremony, an invitation was extended to all in attendance to join in a celebration at the Skytop Restaurant. The Skytop Celebration was magnificent and the food and conversation was the perfect ending to an outstanding day.
Wishing all my family, my viewers and my community a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year 2010.
