Oct. 28, 2009: Middletown has strong candidates

in

To The Editor:
 It is not often that a candidate for political office excites us enough to submit letters of endorsement. This year is different because we have not one, but two incredibly gifted and conscientious candidates for the Middletown Town Council: John Bernhardt and Mike Finberg.


Oct. 28, 2009: Offering a differing view of situation

in

To The Editor:
I feel that I must respond to the scurrilous letter written by Joan Bauer in the October 14 edition. I have served as a town administrator for many years and offer the following information from experience not conjecture.


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. 21, 2009: New York State's farmers need help

in

To The Editor:
On October 13, I held a rally at Maple Dream Farm in the Town of Greene urging Governor Paterson to release $150 million in much-needed funding for New York’s struggling family dairy farmers.
The farmers I spoke with told me that they are being paid prices catastrophically below the price of production for milk. Many local dairy producers have been forced to max out loans, sell their cows and lay off valued workers in an attempt to keep their farms in business. Our family dairy farmers need immediate financial help to ensure that they can continue making a living and have a profitable business to pass along to their children.


Oct. 21, 2009: Why do we pay for poor service?

in

To The Editor:
Why does 911 have so many problems? On Saturday, Oct. 10, a call came in for an automatic alarm on Dry Brook Road, so 911 toned out Arkville. When they couldn’t find anything they radioed 911 to confirm the address.


Oct. 21, 2009: Communication + Teamwork = Success

in

To The Editor:
It is a great honor to have been chosen as a candidate for the important and challenging job of representing the people of Shandaken on the town board. I appreciate your efforts to be informed voters.


Oct. 21, 2009: She'll be back for next Oktoberfest

in

To The Editor:
The weather turned out better than expected and we all had a great time at the Oktoberfest Saturday.  The food was delicious and the music was wonderful. The dance floor was always busy with dancers whirling to the music.  


Oct. 21, 2009: Village of Margaretville is doing well

in

To The Editor:
Recently my organization, Writers in the Mountains, was invited to present a reading of works written in WIM’s journal classes. Our host was Catskill Crafts, and Jill Cline arranged for us to hold the reading in the open area upstairs in the Commons. We were to be one of the Arts in the Commons presentations.


Oct. 14, 2009: Who sets the price for gasoline?

in

To The Editor:
It has bothered me for a long time, and never more so than lately with times being hard.
Every time I take a ride into Kingston I notice that the Hess Station on Route 28 before you get to the traffic circle charges anywhere from 15 to 20 cents a gallon less for regular gas than the price at our local Margaretville station.
