    Woodstock Party Plans Get Scrapped


    BETHEL, N.Y. (AP) _ A planned celebration of Woodstock's 32nd anniversary
    near the original concert site has been scrapped.
    The organizer of a Woodstock reunion-political rally said roadblocks he
    faced for this weekend's planned three-day show were too hard to overcome.
    Jim Cutler made the decision after Bethel was granted a temporary
    restraining order on the permit-less reunion.
    "It was just too much to try and deal with all the hassles," the
    22-year-old said.
    The original three-day concert kicked off Aug. 15, 1969, on Max Yasgur's
    farm, about 80 miles northwest of New York City. A local businessman bought
    the site a few years ago and is developed it for tourism.
    For years, tie-dyed revelers have made annual pilgrimages to Bethel for
    Woodstock's anniversary, but the original site is off-limits for camping.
