Transition Catskills presents Extinction Rebellion at Union Grove

California, burning. Australia, consumed by a furnace blast. The Amazon forest—the “lungs of the planet”—in flames. This is the year.

Dr. Art Weaver, an MD who also […]

Mole’ works against taxpayers

To the Editor: I’m writing in regards to two issues that have commonality. The first is the outcome of a request to have the town of Bovina maintain a small portion of John Tuttle Rd., a distance of about 0.32 miles. The road has 4 full time residences on it; one is occupied by a visually impaired Vietnam veteran. In […]

Media reports were accurate

To the Editor: The media bashing* was eloquent. A few of the supervisors nodded their heads along with the words. None, besides the speaker and one who attended for his own testimony, were present at any of the Scuderi-Hunter hearings. I was there. What I heard and would speculate that the other 10 to 15 attendees besides the media heard […]

Think carefully about dissolution

To the Editor: The upcoming vote on disincorporation presents Fleischmanns voters with an important and difficult choice. They are being asked to weigh a certain gain against an unknown number of uncertain losses—losses they cannot now foresee or calculate. The gain of course is the tax reduction that disincorporation will bring to every property owner. The size and therefore the […]

Climate collapse is impeachable offense

To the Editor: Both Matt Frisch and John Cerullo made points here recently on why Donald Trump should be impeached. Each mentioned climate change. I disagree with Mr. Cerullo, when he implies that doing nothing to stop climate collapse, is not an impeachable offense. The Constitution lists impeachable offenses as “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” It is […]

Don’t lose your voice

To the Editor: So here we are, at a crossroad. Do we disincorporate the Village of Fleischmanns and lose our voice or do we remain independent? I suppose to some, perhaps saving “$200 a year” seems more important than keeping their identity. Through the years, volunteers have worked tirelessly to maintain and operate the village. At village meetings the floor […]
