Hard pressed to understand

in

To The Editor:
As the time has come for the long-awaited decision on the DEC’s review of the Belleayre Resort Project, one cannot help but wonder if the bureaucratic bottleneck will continue.

Thrilled to have facility

in

To The Editor:
As new and avid swimmers we are happy to have an opportunity to begin exercising again at the Catskill Recreation Center. The pool is magnificent; there is a fully equipped workout room, various exercise programs, great staff, and highly trained lifeguards and instructors. We are very grateful to have this wonderful addition to our community.
The hours are very convenient and afford many people the opportunity of exercising before or after work. The staff has been very accommodating to our local students in the Margaretville/Fleischmanns Recreation Program. We can’t say enough how thrilled we are to have this facility. We encourage everyone to visit the facility and have fun!
Linda Taylor, Carol Norwick, and Nancy Millen
Margaretville Central School staff

Correcting the record

in

To the Editor:
A recent obituary for Robert Purcell of Roxbury has disturbed us deeply, primarily out of empathy and concern for persons who may have suffered as a result of sexual abuse by a member of the clergy.

No charitable contributions required

in

To The Editor:
I read with interest the article appearing in last week’s edition reporting on the Comptroller’s evaluation of ORDA’s finances. Particularly the comments by Mel Litoff and Gary Gailes.
The meaning of ORDA’s charter being a public benefits corporation and not one for-profit is clear. As is “supporting a public recreational and cultural amenity that seeks to improve the quality of life for people in the surrounding community while stimulating the regional economy.”

Burning forestland in Colonial times

in

To The Editor:
A new book shows that it was colonial settlers who practiced burning forestland in colonial times.  “Muncie Indian Trade in Ulster County, New York, 1712 -1732”, published last year by Syracuse U. Press, translates the log book of an unnamed Dutch Kingston trader, and has an entire section devoted to sales and services with early Native Americans. The old accounts record was discovered amongst Philip Schuyler’s papers, now in the archives of the NY Public Library.

What neighbors do for each other

in

To The Editor:
Friday, July 11, my husband took our dog Tonto to the state park land at the end of Lower Birch Creek Road (UBC). Some swimmers were there. Bam! A blast from their boom box made him bolt. Then he did what he does best. He went on “walkabout.” After all, he is a double Aussie – Australian Shepherd and Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Healer). That’s why he has a GPS on his collar.

Comments on Andes pool issues

in

To The Editor:
This letter is in response to Andes Town Supervisor Martin Donnelly’s letter in last week’s Catskill Mountain News regarding the ongoing problems with the opening of the Andes pool. I would like to address his letter point by point.
Donnelly states, “Unfortun­ately, we are not clairvoyant as we would have been able to foresee a problem prior to July 4th and saved all of us from the angry rhetoric, indicating we put a damper on some of your 4th of July plans.”

Who said print is dead?

in

To The Editor:
Just a note to say thanks to you and writer John Bernhardt for the article that he wrote about the East Meredith Depot’s open house. People arrived with the Catskill Mountain News in their hands.  They made journeys from Ulster, Sullivan and Otsego counties.  We had one man who was on a road trip to visit  a friend who had just built a home as a replica of an old station. When I looked in his car there were road atlases and a copy of the News.
So many souls never realized that the depot had been saved and remains as a vital addition to this museum village.
