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

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. 21, 2009: Why do we pay for poor service?

in

To The Editor:
Why does 911 have so many problems? On Saturday, Oct. 10, a call came in for an automatic alarm on Dry Brook Road, so 911 toned out Arkville. When they couldn’t find anything they radioed 911 to confirm the address.

Oct. 21, 2009: New York State's farmers need help

in

To The Editor:
On October 13, I held a rally at Maple Dream Farm in the Town of Greene urging Governor Paterson to release $150 million in much-needed funding for New York’s struggling family dairy farmers.
The farmers I spoke with told me that they are being paid prices catastrophically below the price of production for milk. Many local dairy producers have been forced to max out loans, sell their cows and lay off valued workers in an attempt to keep their farms in business. Our family dairy farmers need immediate financial help to ensure that they can continue making a living and have a profitable business to pass along to their children.

As you may already know, we’ve reached out for your support for our son, Dylan Utter, and were extremely grateful for the outcome! Dylan is four years old and suffers from the Number One genetic disease that kills children, Spinal Muscular Atrophy.


Oct. 14, 2009: It finally happened -- history repeats

in

To The Editor:
It has finally happened.  A local person comparing the U.S. to Nazi Germany.  If you really want to see the seeds of Nazi Germany in our country, look at Sarah Palin railing against the intelligentsia of this country as the root of all evil.
