Incendiary images of Marge Miller

in

To The Editor:
I’d love to see your publication responsibly report Middletown government without high­lighting incendiary images of Margie Miller, particularly within this campaign for supervisor.  There’s responsible reporting, and there’s manipulation of the masses, the latter which you appear to freely attempt.  
Hopefully, your residents will become familiar with the real issues and vote intelligently.  
Janine Bray, Bovina

It's good to get involved

in

To The Editor:
Many dignitaries attended the annual Republican dinner Saturday night at the American Legion Hall in Margaretville. Congressman Chris Gibson gave a rousing patriotic speech on the founding of America. In particular, the origin and meaning of the Constitution. I think we all learned something.
The night wasn’t all politics. Thankfully, there was also humor.

Village government has the keys

in

To The Editor,
When a village government refuses to involve its citizens in an opportunity to improve the community, something is very wrong. Margaretville received a $50,000 grant three years ago, a few months after Hurricane Irene, to develop a long-term plan to counter the effect on the village of repeated flooding. When asked about the grant at the May 5 village board workshop meeting, the mayor and the board agreed that no one would be interested in working on such an effort.

Opting out a good lesson for students

in

To The Editor:
The opt out movement is a spontaneous mass response to abuse of students and teachers by the so called ed reformers, school privatizers and the testing industry.
You'll notice that students are not opting out of high school regents exams. This points to the differences between regents and the reading and math tests given in grades 3-8. Regents exams test specific knowledge and skills. Questions refer directly to the syllabus. Teachers and students are clear about what will be tested. The tests are made public.

Bullying behavior is unacceptable

in

To The Editor,
I read the Catskill Mountain News article regarding the employee dispute at Middletown Town Hall.
After having recently endured public humiliation by an over-the-top fellow employee hurling insults and foul language in a public office at me, I can relate with sympathy. This co-worker of mine, a woman, screamed at me and called me incompetent so many times, I began to believe it myself.

It's deja vu in Roxbury

in

To The Editor:
Yet again Roxbury Central School District voters are being asked to approve a multi-million dollar budget to refurbish the Roxbury school building, albeit at a modestly reduced amount from previous proposals.  The last time around, the proposal was soundly rejected by voters. The response from the Roxbury Central School Board was to reduce the cash raise required by some 10 percent.

Let your voice be heard

in

To The Editor:
On Tuesday night, April 28 at the Town of Middletown Town Hall, the Tea Party kicked off its first meeting of the season. These are public meetings open to all. 
Our first meeting was a standing-room-only event. In a town hall fashion, the Pledge of Allegiance started the meeting. A number of current topics were openly discussed ranging from the NYS Safe Act to how can we insure that our representation in Albany and in Washington and locally actually represents the peoples’ wishes.

Not equity and not ethical

in

To The Editor:
The town-wide Roxbury assessments have raised concerns about the changing community dynamics, the equity of tax bills, and the sustainability of the area farms. 


FUNdraiser was a great success

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the Morton Memorial Library Board, I’d like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all who came out for our spring FUNdraiser, dinner at the Zephyr!
I would also like to thank the proprietors of the Zephyr restaurant, Amelia and Michael Hegeman, for hosting our event. Dinner was delicious, the staff was great and everyone worked hard to create a pleasurable evening for all!
Thank you, too, to our talented musicians, Ed Marris and Peter Brittain who helped add to the ambiance of the evening.
