Belleayre resort is dead horse

in

To The Editor:
Unfortunately I missed Roger Wall’s letter two weeks ago asking why the Belleayre Resort should go forward, but feel compelled to comment on Joan Lawrence-Bauer’s rebuttal of November 10.


Establish morality for our country

To The Editor:
The voting is over. What now, what is the message?

The message is, I believe, that we shall sink or swim and those unprepared to fight will surely sink. Those of us who will fight are already victorious, in the sense that we have chosen to fight, with all available means, even if it be just with a keyboard.


Should be proud of Sojourner Truth

in

To The Editor:
Bill Birns wrote another interesting article, about Sojourner Truth. It may be of interest to those who know the history of the Dumond settlers of Margaretville and surrounding area, that Sojourner’s last “owner,” John Dumont (Dumond) was related to Margaretville’s settlers.


Resents distortion of resort project

To The Editor:
Roger Wall, resident of the Catskill Heritage Alliance (CHA) wrote a letter last week asking why the Belleayre Resort should go forward. There are many reasons – but I’ll provide just two.  Jobs and tax base.

Why keep trying to build resort?

in

To The Editor:
The Belleayre Resort’s backers contend that the project isn’t dead yet (in Jay Braman’s 10/27 article), but it should be.  By now it is high time for the 11-year-old Crossroads Resort proposal to die.


Kudos to Sonny for his Andes letter

in

To The Editor:
I agree wholeheartedly with Sonny Somelofski regarding the area filled with people who want to make it over into part of suburban living.

I grew up in Roxbury and have nothing but fond and happy memories of life in Delaware County. After I finished college at SUNY Potsdam, I moved to Virginia and have taught/lived there ever since.


Facts of Andes writer questioned

in

To The Editor:
Let us review the facts, Mr. Foster, of your distorted view of Andes. If you knew what you were talking about, you would have known that the Andes town administration has no control over the decisions made by a private corporation.
