July 29, 2009: Possible penalties are a wrist slap

in

To The Editor:
It is true that the allegations against Father James McDevitt are just that, allegations. But if he is found guilty of all charges, then he should be sent to prison for a long time.


July 22, 2009: Shandaken issues important matters

in

To The Editor:
There are two long running and seemingly unsolvable issues in Shandaken: one being the lack of cellular service and the other the deteriorating state of Route 28. Our district members of Congress and the State Assembly have been contacted, as well as department heads at the Department of Transportation, with letters and by phone with pleas for help.

July 15, 2009: Restore trust in our community

in

To The Editor:
During gallery hours, with a glimpse of sun and a moment away from paperwork, you’ll find me parked out front, on one of my gallery benches, sipping iced tea and talking on the phone, but primarily soaking up the sun. When a customer turns up the walk, I follow him or her inside, most often leaving my tea and phone behind.


July 8, 2009: Many thanks for community support

in

To The Editor:
I recently returned home to Hobart from eight months in Zimbabwe where I work with orphans and their caregivers. These are difficult times for most Americans, but in spite of these times my neighbors here continue to amaze me with their generosity and caring.


July 1, 2009: Great mystery of running engines

in

To The Editor:
Thank you Diane Galusha for your letter about your pet peeve: cars left parked with their engines idling. It’s one of my pet peeves. I live in a first floor apartment and am sometimes subjected to the smell of parked vehicles with their engines idling.
