Late night talk show icon, David Letterman, is expected to help out our local town of Schoharie on Monday night's Late Show according to timesunion.com.

Still feeling the effects of Hurricane Irene, Schoharie will get a big boost on Monday night as David Letterman will ask viewers of the Late Show to contribute to the Schoharie Recovery Fund.  According to Paul Grondahl of timesunion.com, " Schoharie suffered severe damage to 275 homes and businesses. Roughly 80 percent of all structures in the village were damaged."  Grondahl continues "Initial estimates are that it will cost $25 million to $30 million to rebuild the damaged homes."  According to the story, Letterman will be mentioning the fund during his monologue of the Late Show which can be seen at 11:35 PM on CBS Monday night.

You may recall that Schoharie appeared on the Late Show back in 2002 when the town mayor, John Borst, got to read the famed Top Ten List.  This topic that evening?  - Why Being Mayor of Schoharie is the Best Job in the World.
