July 29, 2009: Area must heal from this tragedy

in

To The Editor:
I am writing in response to the recent articles concerning Father James McDevitt, pastor of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church. In your last letters to the editor section, it was written, “a person is innocent until proven guilty.” I understand that this is what our legal system practices and we pray for a just outcome.


July 29, 2009: Only one willing to take a stand

in

To The Editor:
After reading the article about the Middletown Town Planning Board appointment process, the only word I can come up with is disgusting.
To find out that a sitting member of the board went to the trouble of taking pictures of the rear end of my car and the sign on my front lawn which show that I am a “Save The Mountain” supporter which has absolutely no bearing on my ability to do the job or not, is not only unconscionable but discriminatory to say the least.


July 29, 2009: Diversity needed for representation

in

To The Editor:
As I read this week’s edition I find the “Middletown Board debates signage, appointment process” report quite interesting. I quote here – “Planning board member Susan Finch, who sat in the audience, opined that Herz’s outspoken opposition to the Crossroads development should be of serious concern to any appointing board.”
Well, shouldn’t that apply to those that are pro Crossroads Venture, like those that already are sitting on the board?


July 29, 2009: Possible penalties are a wrist slap

in

To The Editor:
It is true that the allegations against Father James McDevitt are just that, allegations. But if he is found guilty of all charges, then he should be sent to prison for a long time.

To The Editor:
I’m writing in response to the coverage of the allegations against Father James McDevitt. Let’s remember they are only that – allegations.


July 22, 2009: Shandaken issues important matters

in

To The Editor:
There are two long running and seemingly unsolvable issues in Shandaken: one being the lack of cellular service and the other the deteriorating state of Route 28. Our district members of Congress and the State Assembly have been contacted, as well as department heads at the Department of Transportation, with letters and by phone with pleas for help.


July 22, 2009: Tea party seen as wakeup call

in

To The Editor:
I would like to thank those who were part of the tremendous Tea Party/Patriotic turnout last Thursday. All expressed their deep concerns of the wrong direction Washington is taking us.


July 22, 2009: Shandaken art tour was a hit

in

To The Editor:
A partial tally of the 34 participating artists in the Shandaken Art Studio Tour came up with these facts: over $6,000 in total art sales, an average of 30 to 40 visitors at each studio, and a big spike in activity in local businesses.


July 15, 2009: Constable not obeying village rules

in

To The Editor:
It appears to me that the current Margaretville Village Constable does not have to obey the signs that are posted on the village streets.


July 15, 2009: Accounting needed from Village

in

To The Editor:
 I read with interest your article about the Fleischmanns Village Hall in the July 1 issue, since the property was taken from me in a condemnation proceeding back in February 2006.
