Mailbag

We've been led by the nose on resort

in

To The Editor:
While it’s understandable that Al Higley would support anything that would increase traffic at his business, I would submit that there are those of us who believe there is already too much traffic and congestion on Route 28.


Belleayre is battered and fragile

in

To The Editor:
I read with interest Jerry Fairbairn’s letter in the January 5 issue. I agree with Mr. Fairbairn up to the point he calls for the resignation or dismissal of Belleayre Mountain’s Superintendent based on “allegations.”


Belleayre needs new Superintendent

Bad experience at Bassett Hospital

in

To The Editor:
I just spent a very disappointing 24 hours at Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown. I was rushed there by ambulance from O’Connor Hospital in Delhi in extreme leg pain to get an MRI and see a neurologist. Neither happened because it was the day before New Year’s Eve and then New Year’s Eve. Did they check before they sent me over?


History lesson on deficit

in

To The Editor:
I am glad Mr. Holcherr, in last week’s Mailbag, wants to stop the spin, although I could not tell that from the contents of his letter.  Reagan might have been a good leader in his judgment, but Reaganomics was a disaster.  How did we get ourselves into this budget crisis?  Simple economics; we reduced taxes and increased spending!


Plattekill left out in the cold by Chamber

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

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.  


Judge lawmakers by their actions

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.
