Please support the Roxbury Holiday Fund

in

To The Editor:
Another year has rolled around and it is time again to think about our neighbors during the holiday season. We will be delivering food boxes and opening our “FREE” toy store in a few weeks.  We always  anticipate that our list will grow and that has certainly been the case in the past few years.
Our community  is always very generous and once again, we ask you to please keep The Roxbury Community Holiday Fund in mind when you make your giving list this December.


Maggie the Dog, what a life!

in

To The Editor:
Matt and I said goodbye to Maggie on October 22. Her energy level was declining (she was 14), and when she stopped eating we took her to Doctor Dan in Grand Gorge. He took a few blood tests and an X -Ray, which showed advanced cancer. He asked us to see the X-Ray. There was no doubt. Dr. Dan sent her off in to a place where Cleo and Phoebe reside. She passed in our arms. It happened so quickly.
So many people have offered condolences. She would “wander” around the hamlet. I swear that she knew more people in Pine Hill than I did. Thank you all for enriching her life.


Fear the renewal notice

in

To The Editor:
I just receive my homeowner’s insurance renewal notice and it is infuriating.
For 2013 my homeowner’s insurance premium was $316. For 2014 the premium will be $521, a 65 percent increase.  I do not have flood insurance on my house as it is on a mountainside. In 10 years of coverage I have never been late on a payment.  


Put a shovel in the ground for Belleayre Resort

in

To the Editor:
Though it has been over five months since the public hearing, we were pleased to read that the Belleayre Resort Project has submitted plans to the Middletown and Shandaken planning boards.  The full build-out of Belleayre Mountain Ski Center and the creation of the Belleayre Resort remain critical to the economic health of our region.


Vilification played a greater role

in

To The Editor:
I don’t often write letters to the editor, but the recent supervisor’s race in the Town of Middletown forces me to write for the second time in a month.
Middletown has had a long tradition of respectful campaigning according to which candidates speak of their own qualifications and vision and refrain from attacks on their opponents. This tradition has made Middletown special, and many of us have pointed to it with pride. Sadly, this year, tradition fell by the wayside.


He will truly be missed

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to thank Don Hogan for his service and love for the Town of Andes.  Don has always been the start of my day since I started teaching at Andes Central School back in 2004.  I go in for my coffee, breakfast, and the paper; he gives me the scoop, tells me a joke, and always gives me a nice start to my day.  


Campaign of change

in

To The Editor:
I want to recognize the more than 100 voters in the Town of Middletown who accepted my platform of positive change for the United State’s Justice System. The message of my campaign for town justice must live on; simply, we are bankrupting our country while exploiting those citizens with the smallest voice.


Support Main Street businesses

in

To The Editor:
Yet another Election Day has come and gone. Some citizens are happy, others are sad.  The politicians have stepped down from their soapboxes, the campaign speeches have stopped. The lawn signs are gone. Promises were made and lies were told and when all was said and done, the citizens have spoken at the polls.
Some citizens unhappy concerning who was elected and some are happy; however, whether you are happy or sad, I hope you voted.  If you did not, then you have no reason to be either.  You failed to exercise one of your rights under our Constitution.

Where are we headed

in

To The Editor:
During the last century, Europe witnessed the violent clash of two political ideologies diametrically opposed to each other – on the Left – Communism, on the Right – National Socialism. In our nation today, historical events of the most gigantic dimensions are unfolding before our eyes as millions of disillusioned Americans are saying goodbye to the old Democratic/Republican con-game – it’s no longer business as usual for these shysters peddling their stale snake oil.
