Easier winter thanks to MARK

in

To The Editor:
We would like to take this time to thank some people who worked on our “home” this past summer, thanks to the good people at the MARK Project.
It all started out with a meeting with MARK’s Katie Camillone. We spoke with her about how we needed to put in a ramp to our back door and about our need to winterize the house against the weather.
The handicap-access ramp would make things easier for my husband so we made a plan and submitted it to the MARK Project and it was approved.

We have a choice in this election

in

To The Editor:
With Election Day less than a month away, we voters are asking ourselves, are we winning or are we losing in NY? We New Yorkers are not doing very well, as a matter of fact we are at the bottom.

What a hypocrite

in

To the Editor:
I was shocked when I read in the Watershed Post, dated October 4, regarding “WIOX employee fired for sending offen­sive station emails to candidate.” This article is about inappropriate emails sent by the office manager of WIOX to Congressman Chris Gibson and that employee’s subsequent firing over his actions.

Transgeneration tennis: retrospective and projections

in

To The Editor:
At the dedication celebration that took place last Saturday at the new Fleischmanns courts, tennis pro Mark Birman, Mayor Todd Pascarella, and I commented on the importance of igniting a love for the sport in the youth population. This sentiment has served as premise and practice throughout the history of the Fleischmanns Open.

Columbus Day, not so much

in

To The Editor:
By now most of us don’t believe that Christopher Columbus discovered America, know­ing there were already millions of people here, leading full and productive lives.  
Columbus was just the beginning of the European invasion that eventually resulted in the near genocide of the people who were here first.  We would do better to remember them in October.

SKCS Superintendent apologizes for perception of team's insensitivity

in

To The Editor:
On September 25, the South Kortright girls’ soccer team played the Margaretville girls’ soccer team. The game was very competitive, and arguably the refs did not manage the game as well as they could have. Both teams are talented and played aggressively.

We have a choice with Eldridge

in

To The Editor:
I applaud Richard Stinson’s letter of September 17.
I too think that Chris Gibson is a good man on a personal level, but his voting record reflects a Representative out of touch with the needs of average folks in this district. Gibson speaks as a moderate, but that’s not how he votes.

Time to put a shovel in the ground

in

To The Editor:
In reference to your article last week, “CHA vows to keep fighting resort,” it’s now quite clear that the Catskill Heritage Alliance (CHA) will never stop trying to kill the proposed Belleayre Resort, just as they have used every excuse to obstruct the full build-out plans for the Belleayre Ski Center.
As our area’s local economy sinks ever deeper in depression, young people leaving, businesses closing, tax base eroding, it appears that the CHA and its financial backers want to hold us all hostage to the secret interests of a selfish few.

Chris knows his constituents

in

To The Editor:
As proud Americans, we encourage everyone to vote. In our country, our voices count; many people are not as fortunate as Americans.
