Plattekill left out in the cold by Chamber

in

To The Editor:
 I feel it is necessary for me to address the Central Catskills Chamber of Commerce’s Buy One, Get One (free) (BOGO) promotion with Belleayre.  


It's time for resort to get underway

To The Editor:


Judge lawmakers by their actions

in

To The Editor:
It was nice to see Joan Lawrence-Bauer articulate her support for all the good things that come from a strong and vibrant Belleayre ski area. There is broad agreement in our community on the need to stop the layoffs. We share her hope that Clifford Crouch and John Bonacic have the leadership ability in Albany to change this misguided decision.


What Tea Party members expect

in

To The Editor:
At our last Tea Party meeting the members of our patriotic group discussed a letter of congratulations to Congressman Elect Chris Gibson explaining what we expected from Col. Gibson and the topics were varied.

We would be pleased if the Catskill Mountain News shared these opinions with our community as these issues pertain to our economy and future.


Faced with a difficult dilemma

in

To The Editor:
Between 1952 and 1982, the share of America’s wealth held by the richest 10 percent of Americans remained stable at about a third of the wealth in our country.

After, Reaganomics was introduced the richest 10 percent of Americans began getting much richer, and by 2007, they held about one half of all the wealth.  


Don't mess with Belleayre!

in

To The Editor:
 It was sad to see the letters from Richard Siegel and Robert Cruickshank in last week’s paper.  Blaming Republicans and Tea Party members for Belleayre’s plight is hardly germane right now and does nothing to achieve a solution.  Further, as everyone around here knows, Republicans Cliff Crouch and John Bonacic have always been strong and effective champions for Belleayre.


We must work to save Belleayre

in

Editor’s note: The following letter was written to New York Governor David Paterson. The authors asked that it be printed here as a letter to the editor.
Dear Governor Paterson:
We understand the financial difficulties of New York State and the challenges you face. However, the recent announcement of layoffs to the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center is not the solution.


It doesn't look good for America

in

To The Editor:
Every day there are so many dramatic events taking place, both in the U.S. and abroad, that it staggers the mind. What’s most pertinent to remember when trying to sort it all out is that the pot is really starting to boil over.


Thanks for supporting holiday meal

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of all of the volunteers and donors, I want to thank our communities for their support for our Community Thanksgiving Dinner! The amount of support we received was overwhelming, and it was so good to have so many volunteers and donors work together to make the dinner such a success!


Belleayre can stand on its own
