After more than two years of discussion, there is a crossing guard in place at the crosswalk between the New Paltz Middle School and the Convenient Deli parking lot. This past Monday, Paul Etess -- the man originally hired for the position by the previous Village Board, and a trained crossing guard who has worked for the Wallkill School District for the past nine years -- was posted at the middle school for an hour in the morning and again after dismissal to help ensure that children can cross safely. Dressed in a fluorescent green jacket, New Paltz Police Department hat and badge and armed with a Jedilike plastic laser and stop sign, Etess marched back and forth with groups of students across South Manheim Boulevard.
