To The Editor:
The Board of Directors and staff of the Pine Hill Community Center wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the individuals and families who are affected by the recent layoffs at Belleayre Ski Center.  


Belleayre workers unfairly targeted

Prospect not good for the deer

in

To The Editor:
Re your article on hunting, prospects may “look good,” but not for the deer. The reasons are that added to the loss of their lives and dissolution of their families, those deer not killed instantly are painfully injured from their wounds.


Shopping locally is very important

Arkville water fee is shocking

in

To The Editor:
What a shock to read about the additional $200,000 increase to build a filtration plant for our little hamlet of fewer than 300 people.

New York City doesn’t have to build a filtration plant for over eight million people and they get the same water running off into the stream that feeds their Pepacton Reservoir.


School's effort is much appreciated

in

To The Editor:
I would like to thank Margaretville School, the teachers and staff and all the wonderful students for the Veterans Day memorial breakfast.
It was obvious that a lot of hard work and planning went into this.

On behalf of myself and all the veterans that were so moved and pleased by your efforts, we want you to know how very much you are appreciated.

Bob Carroll,


Belleayre resort is dead horse

in

To The Editor:
Unfortunately I missed Roger Wall’s letter two weeks ago asking why the Belleayre Resort should go forward, but feel compelled to comment on Joan Lawrence-Bauer’s rebuttal of November 10.


Establish morality for our country

in

To The Editor:
The voting is over. What now, what is the message?

The message is, I believe, that we shall sink or swim and those unprepared to fight will surely sink. Those of us who will fight are already victorious, in the sense that we have chosen to fight, with all available means, even if it be just with a keyboard.


Should be proud of Sojourner Truth

in

To The Editor:
Bill Birns wrote another interesting article, about Sojourner Truth. It may be of interest to those who know the history of the Dumond settlers of Margaretville and surrounding area, that Sojourner’s last “owner,” John Dumont (Dumond) was related to Margaretville’s settlers.
