Shark stolen!

To the Editor: As amazing as that headline sounds, sometime between Thursday early evening (7/25) and Friday around 2:00 p.m., someone came onto my property on CR 6 in New Kingston and stole my treasured 8 foot Dusky Shark. My late wife Cheryl and I caught it in Florida about 30 years ago. He was mounted and hanging on a […]

Unite; don’t divide

To the Editor: On July 24, the local Tea Party will hold a meeting at the Middletown Town Hall. Their agenda includes making a case for the “New Amsterdam Initiative,” which calls for dividing New York State into three sub-sections: Upstate, New York City, and Long Island. Their aim is to create division where unity should prevail. The Tea Party […]

Safe and sound

To the Editor: In response to an ad in last weeks Catskill Mountain News “Looking for Dorothy Bloodgood”, I would just like to let everyone know that it is entirely false. I wanted to come back home to New York where I was born, raised and resided for 94 years. I am well and healthy. I regret that this has […]

God bless the U.S.A.

To the Editor: Independence Day (July 4th) is upon us. America has reached another mile stone in our history; however, will this be our last celebration? Our Republic is under siege – not from foreign powers; but from within. Our Founding Fathers, I am sure are rolling over in their graves. Our history, culture, values, tradition and even our Constitution/Bill […]

City can afford repairs

To the Editor: Per your article in last week’s paper about the upcoming vote on the New Kingston community septic system this coming Saturday at Town Hall, or via an absentee ballot, one key detail that really spells out the important difference is this: The CWC themselves estimated that the total cost of making projected repairs, upgrades, and new systems […]

What’s really happening?

To the Editor: What to make of the Delaware County Fair and Cornell Cooperative Extension’s unwillingness to sever ties to the Confederate flag? The fair board under Ed Rossley supposedly agreed to enforce a prohibition on the display of Confederate flag merchandise at this summer’s fair but the board appears unwilling to make this policy public or put it into […]

New Kingston should be delayed

To the Editor: The New Kingston septic system vote is very confusing; not just to the property owners in New Kingston, but also to the Town of Middletown who approved the packet sent to property owners. Through their Special Counsel, in Albany, the Town sent out a six page packet with instructions, exhibits, statements and absentee ballot forms to property […]

Trump not exonerated by Mueller

To the Editor: Contrary to the parroted assertions of a few local Republicans, the Mueller report did not clear the President. Rather it is a roadmap for both impeachment and removal from office by Congress, and multiple felony indictments and conviction upon his leaving office. Lest there be any doubt, Mueller made this abundantly clear in his statement this past […]

Support of Trump is sinful

To the Editor: Recently, I wrote an open letter inviting Trump supporters to engage in dialogue with me. Most I met with called Trump, usually in less polite terms, “a lowlife” and “unprincipled.” Yet they all said they’ll vote for him again in 2020, because of “the great things he’s done for our country.” Many referred to their Christianity in […]
