SKCS Superintendent apologizes for perception of team's insensitivity

in

To The Editor:
On September 25, the South Kortright girls’ soccer team played the Margaretville girls’ soccer team. The game was very competitive, and arguably the refs did not manage the game as well as they could have. Both teams are talented and played aggressively.


We have a choice with Eldridge

To The Editor:
I applaud Richard Stinson’s letter of September 17.
I too think that Chris Gibson is a good man on a personal level, but his voting record reflects a Representative out of touch with the needs of average folks in this district. Gibson speaks as a moderate, but that’s not how he votes.


Time to put a shovel in the ground

in

To The Editor:
In reference to your article last week, “CHA vows to keep fighting resort,” it’s now quite clear that the Catskill Heritage Alliance (CHA) will never stop trying to kill the proposed Belleayre Resort, just as they have used every excuse to obstruct the full build-out plans for the Belleayre Ski Center.
As our area’s local economy sinks ever deeper in depression, young people leaving, businesses closing, tax base eroding, it appears that the CHA and its financial backers want to hold us all hostage to the secret interests of a selfish few.


Chris knows his constituents

To The Editor:
As proud Americans, we encourage everyone to vote. In our country, our voices count; many people are not as fortunate as Americans.


The Post Office is nuts!

in

To The Editor:
The residents of the hamlet of New Kingston were asked by post office authorities for its feedback on potential service changes, so intelligent cost-saving decisions could be made concerning our post office. A written questionnaire was sent to all residents of The New Kingston Valley so everyone could provide their input.
When the deadline to return the questionnaire had ended, a public meeting was scheduled and held. The Postmaster from Liberty and the Postmaster from Margaretville, who oversees the New Kingston Post Office, conducted the meeting.


Not again — signs of the times

in

To the Editor:
We are heading into election season and the campaign signs are popping up in yards and along roads. Unfortunately signs are also disappearing. Last week I drove from Margaretville to Roxbury where the Gibson Team had placed approximately 18 signs on private property and along roadsides a few weeks ago and counted only three remaining.


Pay attention to his votes

in

To The Editor:
Chris Gibson is a very good man. Unfortunately, he has not fought for the needs of our community. Mr. Gibson is part of the Republican majority that has cut funding to the postal service. As a result, most of our post offices are now closed half each day! Our neighbors who work for the USPS had their hours cut. How is this good for our community?


Good times and bad times

in

To The Editor:
Every week I look forward to reading Brian Sweeney’s column, “Here’s the Scoop” and I usually end with a smile on my face. His stories are part of every reader’s life because he sees the world in his writing and is very acute with the realities of ever-day life. Week after week, he reflects the funny stuff that we experience on a daily basis and it seems like he is writing about each of us…so funny and so real.


Let the people decide

To The Editor:
I would like to address the article in last week’s pertaining to the bio-fuel heating plan in Fleischmanns.


Out of touch candidate

in

To The Editor:
I admire and respect the fact that Chris Gibson has served his country well in the military but I find his statement that Sean Eldridge is an “Out of Touch candidate” to be ludicrous.
Gibson lost touch with our world when he went to college (age 17 with an ROTC scholarship) joined the military service and retired with a pension in 2010, the same year he was elected as our Representative (not much time for a regular job). Since his high school graduation he has lived on taxpayer dollars and he wants to continue this career.
