I am overwhelmed by the show of support from this community of which I have been a part of for more than six years. I trust that during this time I have served you with the best of my ability and I hope that I will be able to do it again in the future should the circumstances change.

in

Editor’s note: The following letter was written to Margaretville Hospital CEO Edmund Morache. The writer asked that it be printed here as a letter to the editor.

Dear Sir:
My name is Stanley Boguski. God willing I will celebrate my 81st birthday on February 7, 2010.
Thus far, my primary doctor, Jaikumar Ravunniarath, has helped me manage my multiple health problems.


Dec. 23, 2009: Global warming is a lot of hot air

in

To The Editor:
The cat is out of the bag, Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted through fraud and misrepresentation.


Dec. 23, 2009: We're still in the dark ages

in

To The Editor:
Answering Ryan Trapani, he is biased and mistaken. Deer and other wildlife do not need people to regulate their populations. In fact, they are better at it than humans. The biggest problem we have concerning forests at this point in time is human development.


Dec. 23, 2009: Catskill Center headed for failure

in

To The Editor:
I was saddened and angered to hear recent news of staff cutbacks at The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development (CCCD.)   When I left my position as assistant director of The CCCD in 2007 the organization was in sound financial condition. 


Dec. 23, 2009: Expresses regret over doctor leaving

in

To The Editor:
As Chair of the Margaret-ville Hospital Board, and also personally as one of his patients, I want to express regret that Dr. Ravunniarath decided to leave our organization and wish him well in his new job. “Dr. J” is a good doctor who is popular with his patients, so it is particularly unfortunate that we were unable to come to an agreement with him.


Dec. 16, 2009: Proud of Scouts and this area

in

To The Editor:
Coming from a city where people routinely step over and around those in need, I am continually surprised and delighted by the folks who live here.  It was truly heartwarming to see such a strong, positive response to our recent Cub Scout activities.  


Dec. 16, 2009: Community support is heartwarming

in

To The Editor:
On a recent afternoon in front of the Margaretville Freshtown Market, I had the pleasure of serving as a Salvation Army volunteer bell ringer. I had assumed that with the current state of our government, the economy, and what we see daily in the media, there would be limited giving.


Dec. 16, 2009: Christmas Project support is welcome

in

To The Editor:
For many years the generous contributions of individuals, churches, businesses and community organizations have more than met the expenses of the Community Christmas Project. The committee works together to identify families and senior citizens who would enjoy a gift of food during the holidays.


Dec. 16, 2009: Questions why doctor is departing

in

To The Editor:
I just found out that our beloved Dr. Jaikumar Ravunniarath, known to all of his patients as Dr. J, is leaving our area. It is my understanding that his contract was expiring and that the hospital administration was unwilling or unable to negotiate an agreement with Dr. J.
