Nov. 25, 2009: Political correctness is fashionable

in

To The Editor:
We, as a society, are wallowing in an ocean of Political Correctness. It has become fashionable with a few self rightist individuals but as it grows in status it becomes unwritten law within our society, with those who are declared as being not politically correct treated as ignorant and undesirable. PC is a declaration that particular ideas, expressions and behavior, which once was legal, are now frowned upon and those that do not embrace it are to be treated as vulgar bigots.


Nov. 18, 2009: Test your water for chemicals

in

To The Editor:
I have always been concerned about the number of cancer diagnosis in the area.  I know that cancer is high everywhere, but here it seems much higher per capita.


Nov. 11, 2009: We are very lucky to have our hospital

in

To The Editor:
I am writing to let readers of the Catskill Mountain News be aware of how lucky we are to have Margaretville Hospital in our community. I have been to the emergency room three times in the past two decades and each time I have been treated with good, appropriate and professional care.


Nov. 11, 2009: Stop gas drilling before it's too late

in

 To The Editor:
We all know “surgeons like to cut.” Well, geologists like to drill.
And in this case, shame on them. Shame on the DEC scientists, who know better, and shame on the selfish Cornell geologists who only see dollar signs. Greed is destroying our country and this issue is a perfect example of it.


Nov. 4, 2009: Human error

in

To The Editor:
I’m writing in response to a letter submitted to the Catskill Mountain News by Randy VanKeuren.
With the wealth of knowledge that Mr. VanKeuren seems to have he must already realize that many items factor into the dispatch of a 911 emergency and errors can and do occur.


Oct. 28, 2009: Mike Finberg is proven asset on board

in

To The Editor:
Michael Finberg is running for re-election to the Middletown Town Board. Michael has proven to be an asset to the Town of Middletown over the years that I have attended town board meetings.


Oct. 28, 2009: I would be honored to serve public

in

To The Editor:
Win or lose, running for a seat on the Middletown Town Board has been gratifying. As I’ve canvassed the district, voters have been welcoming, sharing their charm, sharing their wit, and sharing their wisdom.


Oct. 28, 2009: Bright future for veterinary hospital

in

To The Editor:
I have a crippling neurologic disease that has come at a terrible time of my life. Five years after moving here and five years after opening a thriving and busy veterinary hospital, I have succumbed to a rare disease known as Twelfth Rib Syndrome.


Oct. 28, 2009: Treated poorly by police and press

in

To The Editor:
In the October 21 issue of the Catskill Mountain News, you reported on the continuing saga of a friend of mine, Thomas Filupeit. I know you have to report on local news and events that affect local residents but, it seems he has been singled out. I personally know of several other residents that have run into trouble with the law outside Delaware County without press coverage.


Oct. 28, 2009: Keep your head in a hole in the ground

in

To The Editor:
The recent letter from Ed Kirstein is a typical liberal “keep your head in the hole in the ground.” Why are liberals so afraid of Sarah Palin? Is it because she espouses democracy and will be a threat to the existing leftist political regime in power? We shall see!
