August 19, 2009: Going to D.C. to protest funding

in

To The Editor:
All right, now I am smokin’ mad! Why on earth is Paterson doling out $175 million in federal stimulus and other funds to welfare and food stamp recipients to meet their children’s “back to school” needs? He is giving every one of their children between 3-17 (whether they attend school or not) $200. What about the people who contribute to society?


August 12, 2009: Proud of derailing business projects

in

To The Editor:
Having succeeded in derailing a much needed project that would produce economic, artistic and entertainment benefits for the community, David Budin, neighbor to the Galli-Curci Theatre building, will be a sure thing to be named Man of the Year by the Save the Mountain crowd, empty store specialists.


August 12, 2009: We cannot fool mother nature

in

To The Editor:
The global warming fanatics may or may not be right about their dire predictions but humanity has a greater problem than that. The rise in population, with its enormous consumption, will soon exceed the planet’s ability to support this massive human population. We are outgrowing our natural resources from deforestation to collapsing fisheries, desertification, the global spread of chemical toxins, ocean dead zones, and the death of coral reefs.


August 12, 2009: Support of fire department appreciated

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the Big Indian-Oliverea Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary, I would like to extend our grateful thanks for the great support and generosity of all our friends and neighbors and everyone who came to our 48th Annual Chicken and Ribs barbecue at the Big Indian Firehouse this year, and years past!


August 5, 2009: Suspect will have his day in court

in

To The Editor:
This letter is in response to a letter printed from Vicky O’Connell in Delhi:
You are right Ms. O’Connell, this is America. A person is innocent until proven guilty. Care has to be given when a person is accused of a certain crime.


August 5, 2009: Trash is a problem

in

To The Editor:
“The Watershed Advocate,” the newsletter of the Catskill Watershed Corp., in its Summer 2009 edition had a front page article about the opening of the Cannonsville Reservoir for recreational boating. This was a positive article about a great step forward by NYCDEP. I do want to comment on a specific point in the article, “there have been no enforcement problems thus far, and only a small amount of trash has been generated.”


August 5, 2009: Coverage of priest story tops it

in

To The Editor:
I don’t like to take up the pen and write anymore these days at my age; I can’t change the world, the corruption, our corrupt government and so on, but I have to say what is in my heart and on my mind this time. The letter of the so-called Bishop really tops it. We are a people of faith, of a strong faith. I do not have faith in the Justice System. I have not seen very much to have that kind of faith.


July 29, 2009: Possible penalties are a wrist slap

in

To The Editor:
It is true that the allegations against Father James McDevitt are just that, allegations. But if he is found guilty of all charges, then he should be sent to prison for a long time.


July 29, 2009: Compensation is not so good

in

To The Editor:
I was concerned after reading your recent article in the 7/1/09 issue regarding the Village of Fleischmanns “new Town Hall.”
Reading Gabrielle Kirsh’s letter to the editor in the 7/15/09 issue was additionally disturbing because the Stefanis family has also yet to receive “just compensation” for the village’s condemnation of our property.


July 29, 2009: Area must heal from this tragedy

in

To The Editor:
I am writing in response to the recent articles concerning Father James McDevitt, pastor of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church. In your last letters to the editor section, it was written, “a person is innocent until proven guilty.” I understand that this is what our legal system practices and we pray for a just outcome.
