Put a shovel in the ground for Belleayre Resort

in

To the Editor:
Though it has been over five months since the public hearing, we were pleased to read that the Belleayre Resort Project has submitted plans to the Middletown and Shandaken planning boards.  The full build-out of Belleayre Mountain Ski Center and the creation of the Belleayre Resort remain critical to the economic health of our region.


Vilification played a greater role

in

To The Editor:
I don’t often write letters to the editor, but the recent supervisor’s race in the Town of Middletown forces me to write for the second time in a month.
Middletown has had a long tradition of respectful campaigning according to which candidates speak of their own qualifications and vision and refrain from attacks on their opponents. This tradition has made Middletown special, and many of us have pointed to it with pride. Sadly, this year, tradition fell by the wayside.


He will truly be missed

To The Editor:
I’d like to thank Don Hogan for his service and love for the Town of Andes.  Don has always been the start of my day since I started teaching at Andes Central School back in 2004.  I go in for my coffee, breakfast, and the paper; he gives me the scoop, tells me a joke, and always gives me a nice start to my day.  


Campaign of change

in

To The Editor:
I want to recognize the more than 100 voters in the Town of Middletown who accepted my platform of positive change for the United State’s Justice System. The message of my campaign for town justice must live on; simply, we are bankrupting our country while exploiting those citizens with the smallest voice.


Support Main Street businesses

To The Editor:
Yet another Election Day has come and gone. Some citizens are happy, others are sad.  The politicians have stepped down from their soapboxes, the campaign speeches have stopped. The lawn signs are gone. Promises were made and lies were told and when all was said and done, the citizens have spoken at the polls.
Some citizens unhappy concerning who was elected and some are happy; however, whether you are happy or sad, I hope you voted.  If you did not, then you have no reason to be either.  You failed to exercise one of your rights under our Constitution.

Where are we headed

in

To The Editor:
During the last century, Europe witnessed the violent clash of two political ideologies diametrically opposed to each other – on the Left – Communism, on the Right – National Socialism. In our nation today, historical events of the most gigantic dimensions are unfolding before our eyes as millions of disillusioned Americans are saying goodbye to the old Democratic/Republican con-game – it’s no longer business as usual for these shysters peddling their stale snake oil.


This is where it pays off

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to congratulate the Margaretville boys’ varsity soccer team on their Section D Championship.  They worked long and hard for it. Great job boys!

I’d also would like to thank the boys’ coaches.  When I say coaches I mean all of them.  The ones they had through the years.  Thank you Mr. Marks for the many years and long hours of dedication you’ve given our varsity team.  The way you teach, coach, and inspire our boys, and your caring ways on and off the field.  


This is a disgrace

in

To The Editor:
The fact that the week before the town supervisor election an inaccurate and biased article was headlined on the front page of the Catskill Mountain News (CMN) is unprofessional and violates journalistic ethics.  
First of all, Joe Moskowitz should not be allowed to write articles about this race since he was soundly beaten by Marge Miller in the last election for town supervisor.  Why isn’t that fact disclosed to the public every time he writes an article about Marge Miller?  


Great soccer season

in

To The Editor:
The MCS boys’ soccer team, that defeated Davenport on Saturday to win the Section IV, Class D soccer championship, was truly remarkable. They not only won the title but finished their season undefeated.

One of the factors involved in accomplishing something like this includes good coaching and in this
case it was Jeremey Marks who instilled confidence in his team. The boys also played at their very best every game, worked together as a team, and never gave up on themselves.

Good luck in the upcoming state tournament.
Artie Zier,
Arkville
