Belleayre needs boost

in

Dear Liz:
Our members have several questions regarding March promotions. We think that the 185,000 BOGOs (Buy One, Get One) that you allowed Coke to distribute to their vendors should significantly increase the ticket sales for the month. However, we did an extensive search for any Coke promotion of Belleayre and we were not able to find any. Also, I had a family stay this weekend and they had a kid ski FREE coupon for their 17-year-old. Is this another promotion that we were excluded from?


Fairness and restraint

in

To The Editor:
I guess it sort of makes sense for Judge Rosa, re your story last week on the increase in tickets being given, to have such a benign sense of the motor vehicle ticketing in this area, (last week’s quote) given that in court he is usually the one on the higher seat.


Belleayre's the best deal

To The Editor:
This letter is in regards to Dr. Paul Harris’ letter printed  in last week’s paper.   
Dr. Harris  is upset and will most likely be taking his family elsewhere for skiing since losing his free Senior Citizen Pass.  He states he has had this card since 2004 when he turned 65. That would put him over the age of 70 now.  


It's all about the economy

in

To The Editor:
There are those that are of the belief that only government can get us out of the depression we are in. They are under the myth that government jobs and government stimulus can create wealth, which would result in us getting out of depression and into a prosperous economy. They want us to believe that corporations are evil and only self serving. They want to put you under the spell that Republicans give taxes breaks only to the rich.


Mail delivery issues

To The Editor:
Does anybody out there remember when you could send a piece of mail with just a person’s name, city and state and the person would most likely get their mail? Not anymore.
This is a crazy high-tech world we live in and you’d think that sending/receiving mail would be uncomplicated and efficient.

Campaign issue explained

in

To The Editor:
Until Mr. Davis submitted his recent letter in the News, I was going to stay quiet and keep my views to myself. When he mentioned several issues that I knew were not factual, it was time to get the facts out.

First, I am not here to attack Mr. Davis. As a village employee, the mayor’s race affects my job and ability to do it. The next few years will determine the future of the village and I agree with Mr. Davis, flood mitigation is key.


commitments should be honored

in

To The Editor:
I have been skiing at Belleayre Ski Center for more than 20 years. I have been in possession of a Gold Life Time Card since 2004 when I turned 65. This year, under new management, the administration has refused to honor my free Senior Citizen Pass, stating that the policy has changed.
I do understand that a new policy can be implemented going forward but, I believe that prior commitments should be honored (legally and ethically) as there has been no change in the name of the facility.
I shall most likely be taking my family skiing elsewhere.

Paul Harris, M.D.,


One overwhelming issue

in

To The Editor:
There is a mayoral and village trustee election coming up in March in the Village of Margaretville. As both a village and Town of Middletown resident, there is one issue that is overwhelmingly important to me: making sure that we don’t lose the supermarket in Margaretville again.

To The Editor:
Seeing that we are to believe we live in a movie theme nowadays, I must stand up and say that I’ve heard that I have been nominated for an Oscar. The truth is that I have already received awards in the past, having won the People’s Choice four times previous.

Speaking of movie themes, let’s talk about the one that is going on now. The One and Only One, the Great and Wonderful Oz, has spoken once again with the publication of two letters in the Catskill Mountain News in the past few weeks.
