April 15, 2009: Antler restrictions should be in place

in

To The Editor:
For deer hunters there is now a rule that a legal buck must have one antler at least three inches long. Supporting the proposed antler restriction rule change will make it necessary for a legal buck to have one antler with at least three points. This long overdue rule change will enhance deer hunting and the general health of the deer herd.


April 1, 2009: Tea party planned in Stamford

in

To The Editor:
This is an invitation to everyone to meet on April 4 at Rexmere Lake in Stamford. There will be a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party at 7 p.m.
The reason for this reenactment is to protest the apparent government bailouts, takeovers, tax hikes, etc. All the way from the federal, state to the local governments. A prime example is the federal government cannot even break even on a cafeteria for the congressman, how can they possibly expect to run the business of an entire country.


April 1, 2009: Why is it that state isn't playing?

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to respond to a letter written by Ms. Bauer in the Catskill Mountain News.
First, if anyone had a question as to rather this development that she represents is trying to entangle itself with the Belleayre Ski Center,  I guess she has pretty well answered that question. All along, this development has been trying to ride in on the tails of a public Belleayre Ski Center to benefit its own agenda. She states that Belleayre Ski Center is a treasure  and brings in 200,000 visitors a year, then I guess Belleayre Ski Center is doing well.


April 1, 2009: Belleayre Resort a win-win proposal

in

To The Editor:
Scott Gould and Bev Rainone got it wrong on Crossroads. Here’s the correct information. They allege taxpayers have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars on SEQR. Not true! Crossroads paid virtually all these costs ourselves.


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 25, 2009: Zoning amendment is obnoxious

in

To The Editor:
Well, de-ja-vu!
Remember the 400-plus-concerned Shandaken citizens who came forward to tell that comprehensive committee just where the bear was? Well, it’s time to rise up again! The proposed local law to amend chapter 116 of the zoning law of the Town of Shandaken to regulate farm stands is obnoxious at best!


March 25, 2009: American rights must be defended

in

To The Editor:
Babette Kiesel wrote a letter last week telling me I should be ashamed for exercising my God-given American right to speak out against injustice and petition my elected officials. She says I’m greedy and calls me a “scofflaw.” She wonders if I want to set a precedent. Ms. Kiesel, and the people trying to pass this new law either don’t understand what’s going on or else they don’t share the American values that most of us live by.


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.
