Don't mess with Belleayre!

in

To The Editor:
 It was sad to see the letters from Richard Siegel and Robert Cruickshank in last week’s paper.  Blaming Republicans and Tea Party members for Belleayre’s plight is hardly germane right now and does nothing to achieve a solution.  Further, as everyone around here knows, Republicans Cliff Crouch and John Bonacic have always been strong and effective champions for Belleayre.


We must work to save Belleayre

Editor’s note: The following letter was written to New York Governor David Paterson. The authors asked that it be printed here as a letter to the editor.
Dear Governor Paterson:
We understand the financial difficulties of New York State and the challenges you face. However, the recent announcement of layoffs to the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center is not the solution.


It doesn't look good for America

in

To The Editor:
Every day there are so many dramatic events taking place, both in the U.S. and abroad, that it staggers the mind. What’s most pertinent to remember when trying to sort it all out is that the pot is really starting to boil over.


Thanks for supporting holiday meal

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of all of the volunteers and donors, I want to thank our communities for their support for our Community Thanksgiving Dinner! The amount of support we received was overwhelming, and it was so good to have so many volunteers and donors work together to make the dinner such a success!


Belleayre losses tied to GOP, Tea Party

in

To The Editor:
The Catskill Mountain News reports that people are trying to save 45-48 jobs at Belleayre; I hope they do!

I wonder if the people losing jobs realize the connection between their voting for Bush, the Republicans/Tea Party, and other “fiscally responsible” elements who have held power in recent decades, and the loss of jobs at Belleayre and elsewhere?


Is it smart to listen to gas companies?

To The Editor:
Cabot Oil & Gas refuses to pay the fines levied by the Pennsylvania DEP for contaminating the drinking water in Dimock, PA. 


Roxbury Christmas fund is low

in

To The Editor:
For many years the generous contributions of individuals, churches, businesses and community organizations have more than met the expenses of the Roxbury Community Christmas Project. During this time of economic hardship our reserve has dipped lower than usual. This year your contribution will be especially appreciated.


Belleayre Mountain a viable facility

in

To The Editor:
Last week’s editorial, “State is disconnected from reality” began a much needed conversation and exploration of economy and common sense that I would like to continue here and hopefully see continued in other venues.


Albany politicians out of touch

in

To The Editor:
Just about every day I read in the paper how New York State is in such serious financial trouble.


Sobering reality of GOP agenda

in

To The Editor:
The news of major layoffs at Belleayre Ski Center is extremely disturbing. We need to do everything we can to prevent these good people from losing their jobs.
