Forward thinking is key to project

in

To The Editor:
Thank you for your coverage of Re-Store Design Challenge in Roxbury.  While the design teams - designers, builders, artists, and students - all put in an August full of sweat equity, there are some who should be recognized whose contributions were monetary, substantial, and key to this project’s success.


Festival of the Voice a magical event

in

To The Editor:
It is said that a place where two waterways meet is sacred ground. And here, between the foothills of Mount Tremper and the Mighty Esopus, we created something unique and magical, and the trees and mountains and creatures in the woods and rocks and water and the people who live here came together, and were united by this great primal vibration we call voice-and united in song.


Backward step taken by “Patriots"

in

To The Editor:
I am appalled at the tone of some of the letters sent to this paper, as well that in much of the national media, filled with shrill invective and angry calls to “patriotism,” when what the country needs is intelligent problem solving, civil discourse and yes, the possibility of compromise.


Show community support for Dr. Fiore

in

To The Editor:
I am writing this letter as an outreach to the community. It is in reference to the Margaretville Health Center. It has come to my attention that the Health Center is being sold and we are going to lose Dr. Susan Fiore. A well-placed source told me that Dr. Fiore has already been given a 90-day termination notice.


America - awake before it’s too late

in

To The Editor:
The federal government recently announced that it was giving the state of Arizona $25 million to build a bridge to help protect an endangered species. Problem is, the endangered species is the red squirrel and not the endangered citizens of Arizona. Washington has declared war on them for daring to try to defend themselves from an alien invasion. If only they were red squirrels instead. The situation in parts of Arizona has indeed become dire as two of their southern counties are now part of the Mexican narco state, being overrun with drug runners, human smugglers and executioners armed with automatic weapons.


E.O. England should run for office

in

To The Editor:
I am writing to respond to a letter to the editor by E.O. England. It was printed in your July 28 edition.

E.O. is entitled to his opinions but E.O. is not entitled to make up facts.


Parking problems annual occurrence

in

To The Editor:
No parking signs, re: Kathie Miller’s letter in last week’s paper, are just ornaments in Fleischmanns. There won’t be any enforcement right now over the summer.  It is an annual summer occurrence.
 
Nothing will be done about the traffic problem there until after the fall season begins and the road opens up again.


Different view of the Constitution

in

To The Editor:     
The current attitude that the U.S. Constitution is a living document, and by this, the word twisters mean subject  “to their current interpretation” is an obvious example of he who defines, controls. Subtle, but relentless, propaganda has done much to undermine the meaning of words. The reason you see so many older people criticizing things today is that they have the advantage of experiencing America before this country’s down slide.


Canned goods donations welcome

in

To The Editor:
This year’s Shandaken Day event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 28 at the Glenbrook Park on Route 42 in Shandaken.

The Phoenicia Rotary, which will have a booth at this year’s event, would like to request that anyone attending this event, please consider bringing a non-perishable item to drop off at their booth, as a donation to the town’s food pantry.


Sentiments nice, but check the facts

in

To The Editor:
I am writing in response to Mr. & Mrs. David Amundsen’s letter in the August 4 Catskill Mountain News.
I was in no way forced out of my job at MCS. I chose to retire due to health reasons and age. I appreciate Mr. & Mrs. Amundsen’s concern however, I wish they had checked the facts before writing their letter.

Ada M. Harke,
Fleischmanns
