I am not sure if the various news media have given much coverage to the following accomplishments of President Obama since his inauguration.


May 6, 2009: Chemical in mulch is toxic to pets

in

To The Editor:
Over the weekend the doting owner of two young lab mixes purchased Cocoa Mulch from Target to use in their garden. They loved the way it smelled and it was advertised to keep cats away from their garden. Their dog Calypso decided that the mulch smelled good enough to eat and devoured a large helping. She vomited a few times which was typical when she eats something new but wasn’t acting lethargic in any way. The next day, Mom woke up and took Calypso out for her morning walk. Half way through the walk, she had a seizure and died instantly.


May 6, 2009: Craving the sound of silence

in

To The Editor:
Thank you Brian Sweeney for your column “Turn it up. Louder.” I’m tired of the news program loud-mouths, and loud cars, loud trucks and, especially, loud motorcycles. Related to this loudness is the music we are all but forced to listen to everyplace we go. Here we are subjected to it in Freshtown, our new supermarket, and CVS and several other shops.


May 6, 2009: Belleayre is not shovel-ready

in

To The Editor:
The Coalition to Save Belleayre, Ulster’s Legislature Chairman and anonymous Delaware officials have again called on Governor Paterson to direct stimulus funding to the expansion of public Belleayre Mountain Ski Center (BMSC). What construction plans do they want funded and on what land? Stimulus money is for shovel-ready infrastructure projects, already reviewed and ready for bid, to put people to work quickly.


May 6, 2009: Community support has been great

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the South Kortright boys’ and girls’ basketball teams I would like to thank all the individuals and organizations for their help throughout the 2008-2009 championship season. The support from the school communities and neighboring towns was overwhelming.


April 29, 2009: Utters return after treatments in Peru

in

To the Editor:
Hola! Dylan and I just arrived home from Lima, Peru on Friday, April 24, where he received two top-of-the-line stem cell treatments, as well as intensive physical therapy. The trip was amazing and the medical care was phenomenal. Dylan is already showing signs of improvement with much more to come!


April 22, 2009: Many Mexicans are here illegally

in

To The Editor:
How many of the “Mexican Community” in Fleischmanns, currently featured in the documentary by Jessica Vecchione of Hamden, are here illegally? My impression is that Fleischmanns and the surrounding area is loaded with illegal aliens, Mexican and otherwise. These illegal aliens are here by breaking our laws. They sneaked in illegally!


April 22, 2009: State champions at Roxbury in 1959

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to respond to John Bernhardt’s recent article re South Kortright’s state basketball championship as the first for a Delaware County school.
I was a member of the Roxbury Rockets varsity basketball team that won the Section IV, Class D New York State Championship in 1959.


April 15, 2009: Margaretville Hospital is a lifesaver

in

To The Editor:
Late last March I had a severe medical emergency and managed to get to the Margaretville Hospital EMS. There, Steve Carson, Barbara Hendrickson and Greg Forsman revived me with all the appropriate medical treatment, summoned a helicopter evacuation and sent me off to Albany for emergency surgery. Their prompt, skilled, and efficient work saved my life.


April 15, 2009: Antler restrictions should be in place

in

To The Editor:
For deer hunters there is now a rule that a legal buck must have one antler at least three inches long. Supporting the proposed antler restriction rule change will make it necessary for a legal buck to have one antler with at least three points. This long overdue rule change will enhance deer hunting and the general health of the deer herd.
