April 15, 2009: Health Care

in

To the Editor:
Hippocrates, the founder of clinical medicine and author of the code doctors practice by, was erased from the health system more then 67 years ago. His code died at the start of WW2. It’s true.


April 15, 2009: Margaretville Hospital is a lifesaver

in

To The Editor:
Late last March I had a severe medical emergency and managed to get to the Margaretville Hospital EMS. There, Steve Carson, Barbara Hendrickson and Greg Forsman revived me with all the appropriate medical treatment, summoned a helicopter evacuation and sent me off to Albany for emergency surgery. Their prompt, skilled, and efficient work saved my life.


April 15, 2009: Antler restrictions should be in place

in

To The Editor:
For deer hunters there is now a rule that a legal buck must have one antler at least three inches long. Supporting the proposed antler restriction rule change will make it necessary for a legal buck to have one antler with at least three points. This long overdue rule change will enhance deer hunting and the general health of the deer herd.


April 1, 2009: Belleayre Resort a win-win proposal

in

To The Editor:
Scott Gould and Bev Rainone got it wrong on Crossroads. Here’s the correct information. They allege taxpayers have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars on SEQR. Not true! Crossroads paid virtually all these costs ourselves.


April 1, 2009: Tea party planned in Stamford

in

To The Editor:
This is an invitation to everyone to meet on April 4 at Rexmere Lake in Stamford. There will be a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party at 7 p.m.
The reason for this reenactment is to protest the apparent government bailouts, takeovers, tax hikes, etc. All the way from the federal, state to the local governments. A prime example is the federal government cannot even break even on a cafeteria for the congressman, how can they possibly expect to run the business of an entire country.


April 1, 2009: Why is it that state isn't playing?

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to respond to a letter written by Ms. Bauer in the Catskill Mountain News.
First, if anyone had a question as to rather this development that she represents is trying to entangle itself with the Belleayre Ski Center,  I guess she has pretty well answered that question. All along, this development has been trying to ride in on the tails of a public Belleayre Ski Center to benefit its own agenda. She states that Belleayre Ski Center is a treasure  and brings in 200,000 visitors a year, then I guess Belleayre Ski Center is doing well.


March 25, 2009: Shandaken decision seems ironic

in

To The Editor:
This letter is in response to the recent pubic hearing on farm stand regulations in the Town of Shandaken. I had requested the opportunity to speak at this public hearing. I thought that was the purpose of the hearing, but was denied by Supervisor DiSclafani because the hearing was taking more time than had been allotted. I wonder if one of the supervisor’s “advisors” had requested to speak if they would have been permitted to do so?


March 25, 2009: Let's get to work as a village

in

To The Editor:
It is my great honor to thank the community of Fleischmanns for choosing me to be their next mayor. I am grateful and humbled by the support that I have received. I would like to thank both Malcolm Becker and Harriet Grossman for their years of service and I look forward to working together in the future.


March 25, 2009: Who will pay if resort is built?

in

To The Editor:
In reply to Crossroads’ PR director’s letter last week, we ask, how dare she question Susana Margolis’ sense of reality? To quote the Crossroads’ spokesperson,  “The State of New York will not be investing a single penny in a private enterprise related to Crossroads Ventures, and the Belleayre Resort.”
What about the hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars spent already on the SEQR process?


March 25, 2009: Everyone in Shandaken should care

in

To The Editor:
It’s frightening to read a zoning law proposed in Shandaken. This proposal is a shocking example of shortsighted abuse of political power to legislate against one individual to the detriment of everyone else.
