Nov. 4, 2009: Human error

in

To The Editor:
I’m writing in response to a letter submitted to the Catskill Mountain News by Randy VanKeuren.
With the wealth of knowledge that Mr. VanKeuren seems to have he must already realize that many items factor into the dispatch of a 911 emergency and errors can and do occur.


Oct. 28, 2009: Keep your head in a hole in the ground

in

To The Editor:
The recent letter from Ed Kirstein is a typical liberal “keep your head in the hole in the ground.” Why are liberals so afraid of Sarah Palin? Is it because she espouses democracy and will be a threat to the existing leftist political regime in power? We shall see!


Oct. 28, 2009: Tragic passing of a fine citizen

in

To The Editor:
The passing of Malcolm Becker is tragic, not just for his family, but for everyone in our region.  He was a really special human being and gave much to this community.


Oct. 28, 2009: Mike, John deserve voters' support

in

To The Editor:
Although the campaign has been low-key, there’s an important election taking place in the Town of Middletown next Tuesday. Residents will select two town board members among three candidates.


Oct. 28, 2009: Middletown has strong candidates

in

To The Editor:
 It is not often that a candidate for political office excites us enough to submit letters of endorsement. This year is different because we have not one, but two incredibly gifted and conscientious candidates for the Middletown Town Council: John Bernhardt and Mike Finberg.


Oct. 28, 2009: Offering a differing view of situation

in

To The Editor:
I feel that I must respond to the scurrilous letter written by Joan Bauer in the October 14 edition. I have served as a town administrator for many years and offer the following information from experience not conjecture.


Oct. 28, 2009: Mike Finberg is proven asset on board

in

To The Editor:
Michael Finberg is running for re-election to the Middletown Town Board. Michael has proven to be an asset to the Town of Middletown over the years that I have attended town board meetings.


Oct. 28, 2009: I would be honored to serve public

in

To The Editor:
Win or lose, running for a seat on the Middletown Town Board has been gratifying. As I’ve canvassed the district, voters have been welcoming, sharing their charm, sharing their wit, and sharing their wisdom.


Oct. 28, 2009: Bright future for veterinary hospital

in

To The Editor:
I have a crippling neurologic disease that has come at a terrible time of my life. Five years after moving here and five years after opening a thriving and busy veterinary hospital, I have succumbed to a rare disease known as Twelfth Rib Syndrome.


Oct. 28, 2009: Treated poorly by police and press

in

To The Editor:
In the October 21 issue of the Catskill Mountain News, you reported on the continuing saga of a friend of mine, Thomas Filupeit. I know you have to report on local news and events that affect local residents but, it seems he has been singled out. I personally know of several other residents that have run into trouble with the law outside Delaware County without press coverage.
