May 5, 2010: Writer claims article was unfair

in

To The Editor:
Reading Brian Sweeney’s recent article titled Watershed Gas Drilling Halted by DEC Ruling I was drawn by his use of the word “halted” in the headline as well as terming drilling in the watershed to be “virtually impossible” in his lead sentence.


May 5, 2010: Onteora has created a good budget

in

To The Editor:
The Onteora Board of Education recently unanimously approved the superintendent’s recommended budget for the coming 2010-2011 school year. Knowing that these are difficult economic times for taxpayers, we worked hard to limit the budget increase to only 0.31percent.


May 5, 2010: You're being used by right-wingers

in

To The Editor:
The Mailbag lately has become a sounding board for the unhappy conservative, right wingers.  Unhappy, because that’s exactly what the RNC, talk radio and Fox cable news wants you to be.  If you’re unhappy, then you’ll vote for the minority party.


May 5, 2010: Care about others

in

To The Editor:
On Friday I was traveling east on Route 28 down the hill from Belleayre toward Pine Hill when my auto struck a pothole that cut my tire. I pulled into a gas station with no repair shop  and was about to attempt to change my tire to the spare.


May 5, 2010: "Tomorrow" should have been key

in

To The Editor:
“Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.” Over the years, Fleetwood Mac’s lyrics from their classic hit tune have come to symbolize ‘the vision thing,’ the ability to look beyond the present and use the opportunities of today to shape a better tomorrow.  The Margaretville Central School Board of Education was singing a different tune last week when they voted down a proposed merger in boys’ team sports between MCS and Andes.


May 5, 2010: Caring teenager is an inspriation

in

To The Editor:
May 1 was a beautiful day, sunny and hot. After many hours of arduous yard work I sat on my front porch steps in the early afternoon. Basking in the sun fatigue set in, so I lay on the floor of the porch, one leg on a step below, the other on the porch, my hands folded across my chest. Getting a nap and some sun was the idea.


April 28, 2010: Public's support was overwhelming

in

To The Editor:
On April 6 the Class of 2011 had a fund-raising barbecue for its class. In 45 minutes they sold out 400 halves and dinners. We were pleased at the response of our community, but also surprised at the same time as to the overwhelming response.


April 28, 2010: Supervisors' stance makes no sense

in

To The Editor:
The resolution passed unanimously by the Delaware County Board of Supervisors promising “any appropriate assistance…to assure the development of the [proposed Belleayre] resort” may have no legal force or legislative meaning, but it does tell us something about our county’s supervisors. It tells us that they are willing—even eager—to commit taxpayer money to a pig in a poke.


April 28, 2010: Quest for peace may still be realized

in

To The Editor:
Thanks to Anita Rubin for her informative letter showing Israel’s continuous efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East and the importance of the long-standing relationship between our two countries. 


April 28, 2010: America faces wounded future

in

To The Editor:
Before proceeding, I admit to having voted for Obama, scammed by his meaningless proclamations of “change” — When? Where? To say I am disappointed is putting it mildly.
