Out of touch candidate

in

To The Editor:
I admire and respect the fact that Chris Gibson has served his country well in the military but I find his statement that Sean Eldridge is an “Out of Touch candidate” to be ludicrous.
Gibson lost touch with our world when he went to college (age 17 with an ROTC scholarship) joined the military service and retired with a pension in 2010, the same year he was elected as our Representative (not much time for a regular job). Since his high school graduation he has lived on taxpayer dollars and he wants to continue this career.

Demand Justice for all of us

To the Editor:
The latest report from the United Nations’ generally conservative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is terrifying.


Fairview Library anniversary celebration

To The Editor:
On Saturday, Aug. 23 the community gathered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Fairview Public Library in Margaretville with an ice cream social, classical guitar music, a cake decorating contest (which was won by Jen McMurray), Native American drumming, and visits from an antique car, a local author, and a clown.

Puppy Love at work for a good cause

To The Editor:
You may have seen me walking around Margaretville with Hadley, a 14-month-old female yellow Lab. In November she will be going to seeing eye dog formal training at the Freedom Guide Dogs facility in Cassville. Please check out the website at freedomguidedogs.org to see info and a video.

Herculean efforts applauded

in

To The Editor:
Once again the Historical Society of Middletown has presented a fantastic musical program.
Up at the Historical Society Hall on Cemetery Road, we had the pleasure of hearing the 77th Regimental Balladeers from Windham. This is a 15-piece band playing and singing Civil War era, All-American, and Folk favorites.  It was a totally entertaining and inspiring program, which everyone in attendance enjoyed. Thanks go, of course, to Diane Galusha for her herculean efforts organizing this program and keeping the Historical Society a vital part of our community.

We still live in a capitalistic country

in

To The Editor:
I read with great interest the letter written by Matthew Frisch of the Catskill Heritage Alliance pertaining to the public’s “right to know” certain aspects of Cross­roads proposed Highmount Spa Resort, in particular the basis of their business plan for the project.
As a former executive of two public corporations, I am puzzled why anyone except for current and prospective investors should be privy to this information in the first place. Are Mr. Frisch and his associates and residents of the area intending to invest their money in this proposed venture?   


There are honest people

in

To The Editor:
I would like to thank the person who found my wallet last Friday on Route 28 and turned it in to Sanford Auto Parts.
Panic always ensues when one’s wallet is missing, but it is so nice to know that there are honest people in the community. Thanks to Sanfords too.

Iris Mead, Margaretville


Big fat tax deduction

in

To The Editor:
   In response to Matthew Frisch’s letter to the editor last week, the “Public has the right to know.”  The one thing the public does indeed have the right to know is this: Where did Mr. Frisch and his Catskill Heritage Alliance get the $67,310 they paid to their consultant last year to attack the proposed Belleayre Resort project, the very same consultant they are again using this year to justify why the resort should be stopped
