A closer look at the numbers

in

To The Editor:
The recent letter to the editor from Mr. Rossi regarding the raise the supervisor’s position was given in the preliminary budget for the Town of Middletown was misleading, meant to present the appearance of financial irresponsibility on the town board’s part, particularly given the current economic climate.

RCS show deserved coverage

in

To The Editor:
On November 7 and 8, Roxbury Central School drama students put on a spectacular ren- ­dition of the musical, “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” The students involved all worked tirelessly for several weeks leading up to the performance. Their hard work culminated in two shows of incredible acting, singing and dancing.

Pray for their safety

in

To The Editor:
A huge thank you to the students, faculty, and staff at Margaretville Central School (MCS) for the outstanding Veterans Day ceremony this past week.
This annual event at MCS has grown from only five or six veterans in attendance 10 years ago to over 50 this past week. It was most fitting that the person responsible for the first event, John Riedl, was once again in attendance as the interim school superintendent.

The rumor mill churns

in

To The Editor:
Senselessness always divides a small town. Follow it up with classless chatter. Done. Everyone has an opinion. The rumor mill churns quickly.
Please, in all the commotion of this past week, remember, these are somebody’s children. Your neighbor’s kid. People we know, see or interact with. They belong to local people we know. You have watched them grow up, talked to them, or not. At some level, you know who they are and in some ways, why.

We all miss you, Berna

in

To The Editor:
I was sad to read in the News that Berna Van Benschoten passed away on October 25 at Mountainside Care Center.  
Berna was a frequent attendee at our monthly Tea Party meetings and we all enjoyed her conversations and good humor. She always had a smile and a friendly attitude and when she was no longer able to sit with our group, we prayed for her.  I guess that 28 years at the post office enabled Berna to have a wonderful caring personality. We offer our condolences to her family, we all miss you.
Jon Adams, Margaretville Area Tea Party

Big shoes to fill

in

To The Editor:
When Phil Lenihan first show­ed up in my restaurant, Nicky and I rolled our eyes.
This guy is opening an Eight-Track Museum? Are you kidding me? That will last about five minutes in Roxbury.

Questions supervisor's raise

in

To The Editor:
Well, Election Day has come and gone. I am sure it is safe to assume some voters are happy, others are disappointed with the election results. Hope you all took an active part in this process.
Now is the time for America to become united. We have challenges and obstacles that we need to overcome.  This will only happen if we all work together and put our political differences aside and go with the best possible solution for our country - the America people.

Offer Pat a pat on the back

in

To The Editor:
A pat on the back and public thank-you to local Code Enforcement Officer Patrick Davis for his tireless three-year effort to improve our community flood-mitigation rating, lowering the local cost of flood insurance.
We got the rating! Due to Patrick’s single-minded dogged­ness, residents and business-people will gain significant sav­ings on insurance premiums for properties in the Town of Middletown, and in the villages of Fleischmanns and Margaret­ville.

The fifth annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner is being organized and we are looking for people who are willing to help make it happen.
