March 25, 2009: Medical services are truly essential

in

To The Editor:
This was our first experience calling the Roxbury Rescue Squad and being administered to by the Margaretville Emergency Room staff. We did not realize how valuable and helpful the members are to our community. They are truly dedicated and a much needed asset to all. All of our town’s people should think about how necessary and needed the Roxbury Rescue Squad is to our community.


March 25, 2009: Congressional vote in your hands

in

To The Editor:
It is good that we have two candidates from which to choose in the upcoming March 31 election to fill Kirsten Gillibrand’s seat in Congress. Their divergent views on the value of the unborn and marriage gives the voters a clear choice and makes it easy for them to make the correct decision.


March 25, 2009: Shandaken decision seems ironic

in

To The Editor:
This letter is in response to the recent pubic hearing on farm stand regulations in the Town of Shandaken. I had requested the opportunity to speak at this public hearing. I thought that was the purpose of the hearing, but was denied by Supervisor DiSclafani because the hearing was taking more time than had been allotted. I wonder if one of the supervisor’s “advisors” had requested to speak if they would have been permitted to do so?


March 25, 2009: Let's get to work as a village

in

To The Editor:
It is my great honor to thank the community of Fleischmanns for choosing me to be their next mayor. I am grateful and humbled by the support that I have received. I would like to thank both Malcolm Becker and Harriet Grossman for their years of service and I look forward to working together in the future.


March 25, 2009: Who will pay if resort is built?

in

To The Editor:
In reply to Crossroads’ PR director’s letter last week, we ask, how dare she question Susana Margolis’ sense of reality? To quote the Crossroads’ spokesperson,  “The State of New York will not be investing a single penny in a private enterprise related to Crossroads Ventures, and the Belleayre Resort.”
What about the hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars spent already on the SEQR process?


March 25, 2009: Everyone in Shandaken should care

in

To The Editor:
It’s frightening to read a zoning law proposed in Shandaken. This proposal is a shocking example of shortsighted abuse of political power to legislate against one individual to the detriment of everyone else.


March 18, 2009: The truth about my candidacy

in

To The Editor:
I returned to Margaretville and made my home here because of the neighborly, small town feeling that seemed to pervade every aspect of life. When I ran for the village board four years ago and was elected, my decision seemed to be justified. Even though we’ve not always agreed with each other, most people, even opponents, have remained positive and respectful. So I was shocked at Carol O’Beirne’s negative ad attacking me last week.


March 18, 2009: Sad commentary on Belleayre Resort

in

To The Editor:
Susanna Margolis writes some amazing letters but last week’s topped them all. Comparing plans to expand Belleayre Mountain Ski Center with the construction of Yankee Stadium is a colorful fantasy that has no basis in reality. Let me count the ways.


March 18, 2009: We need Murphy in Congress

in

To The Editor:
It feels right — Kirsten Gillibrand asking us to support Scott Murphy as her replacement in Congress. Like Kirsten, when Murphy launched his campaign a few weeks ago, he was an unknown Democrat running against a career politician in a district gerrymandered for a Republican. No one gave him a chance either. Like Gillibrand, however, Murphy’s poll numbers are rapidly rising as people get to know him.


March 18, 2009: Support sought in village election

in

To The Editor:
As a candidate for mayor for the Village of Margaretville it has been a heartwarming experience for me to visit with you, our village residents, over the past several weeks. I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and gracious welcome. I know how much you care about your community.
