March 31, 2010: Educational system is destroyed

in

To The Editor:
America’s public schools, before they were hijacked and destroyed by liberals and progressives, along with their allied comrades, the atheistic Marxists, existed for the purpose of helping our children to explore their heritage, culture and the glorious history of our nation and to become better citizens for it.


March 24, 2010: Talks need American leadership

in

To The Editor:
Those of us who truly care about Israel know that President Barack Obama is right to confront Israel over its approval of a new settlement construction plan in East Jerusalem. Settlement expansion undermines prospects for peace. And Israel’s future is dependent on reaching a two-state solution.


March 24, 2010: Great Republic is now in ruins

in

To The Editor:
Recently one of the “Progressive” pundits on TV declared that the American public is “not bright enough to really understand the issues” and are just plain stupid. My knee jerk reaction was to take exception to this characterization. After a bit of reflection it dawned on me that maybe he had in mind those voters who put the present government in power.


March 24, 2010: Hospital board should reconsider

in

To The Editor:
I am writing to express my dismay over Dr. Ravunniarath’s leaving the Margaretville Family Health Center. I understand that he left because he wanted a pay raise. While I appreciate that money is hard to come by, I hope you will consider what I have to say.


March 24, 2010: Musician's work is appreciated

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of Onteora Central School District and the HS Music Department, I would like to thank Justin Kolb, pianist, for gracing our auditorium with his talent.


March 17, 2010: Hospital board needs Dr. J back

in

To The Editor:
In today’s health care even doctors are disposable. I can say this with certainty because my internist was.
Dr. J. Ravunniarath and I met after I came very close to dying.


March 17, 2010: Enjoying fame from Oscar connection

in

To The Editor:
The staff at The Roxbury Arts Group has been enjoying its five minutes of reflected fame from the Oscar awarded to Elinor Burkett and Roger Ross Williams in the short documentary category for “Music by Prudence.”   We feel as though we were there at the beginning because we sponsored Burkett and Williams for  a NYSCA Individual Artist Grant application, which was funded.


March 17, 2010: Help save the Big Indian Post Office

in

To The Editor:
I am writing this letter in desperation, in hopes that you can help save the identity of the hamlet of Big Indian in the Town of Shandaken. I am the owner/landlord of the Big Indian/Oliverea Post Office located on state Route 28. The lease is expiring June 30. With exhausting attempts to renegotiate with the USPS, I find myself reaching out to you for help.


March 10, 2010: Tireless workers are appreciated

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the local fire departments and EMS providers, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local highway crews including village, town, county and state for their efficient and effective work in dealing with the recent storms that struck our area. Without these men and women getting out there and making our roads passable in all sorts of conditions, the emergency response system would fail miserably.


March 10, 2010: Too bad cheerleading is not covered

in

To The Editor:
I had the pleasure of attending the Gilboa cheerleading competition on Saturday. MCS cheerleaders took second place trophies for their cheer and their dance routine. I am so very proud of these girls! They have worked so very hard and it shows!
It is disappointing, as a member of this community, to find our local paper does not “cover” cheerleaders.
