Dec. 24, 2008: Group seeks a sensible compromise

in

To The Editor:
In last week’s letter the Public Relations Guru for Crossroads Ventures writes to explain to us that their corporation is not looking for a bailout from the State of New York. Most of the opponents of the project have never thought that Crossroads is seeking a bailout from NYS, Ulster County or Delaware County, but rather a “hand-out” from these political entities!


Dec. 24, 2008: Funds are a gift, not a bailout

Dec. 24, 2008: Budget cuts would be devastating

Dear Governor Paterson:


Dec. 10, 2008: Ban hunting

in

To The Editor:
The sadistic violence of sport hunting raises its ugly head again. The Catskill Mountain News letter of Amy Metzger reported how a much loved dog, Diva, was caught in a hunter’s trap.


Dec. 10, 2008: No bailouts

in

To The Editor:
I agree with Richard Schaedle’s letter that as taxpayers, these funds from NYS Governor’s office should not be poured into private development of the proposed Belleayre Resort project. A majority of the people, whether locals or not, appreciate the Belleayre Ski Center as the center of our economic life here in the Catskills. If the state can hardly afford to give Belleayre employees their wages, who are working there year after year, why should these rich people get more in their pockets now that the economy has tanked?


Dec. 10, 2008: He's angry

in

To The Editor:
I was angered over the reprint of the editorial, which appeared in the Daily Freeman of Kingston.
Richard Schaedle and the Catskill Heritage Alliance are trying to protect our quality of life and the Catskill Park. If this giant nightmare resort is built the Catskill Park will become Catskill Park City. Does the almighty dollar have to ruin everything?


Dec. 10, 2008: Where is he?

in

To The Editor:
I was pleased to see my daughter Angela Perazone’s photo in the Nov. 18 issue of the Catskill Mountain News that was taken at the Roxbury Central School Veterans Day ceremony. It’s good to see that the schools are still holding ceremonies for this special day, especially since we are a nation at war. I do appreciate it.


Dec. 10, 2008: Correction

in

To The Editor:
There is an error in the letter in your printed version of my letter in last week’s paper. Check the first and second sentence of the first paragraph.


Dec. 3, 2008: Tough times for animals, also

in

To The Editor:
Times are tough. So tough, in fact that people are finding that they can no longer afford to feed or care for their pets; pets that have been members of their families, often for years.
Here in our area, we are very fortunate to have a caring and safe place to surrender our pets when we can’t care for them properly. As painful as this can be, if you know anything about the Heart of the Catskills Humane Society in Delhi, you know that there isn’t a better place to leave a pet you can no longer support.


Dec. 3, 2008: Do your part for our communities

in

To The Editor:
Kudos to Lauren Quarltere, Mike Mathis, Maggie Inge, Iris Mead and Margaretville Mayor Bill Stanton for their leadership in developing and organizing last Saturday’s parade. I know firsthand how many months of hard work and planning went into this kick-off event for the Holiday Treasure Express. To see our local businesses, organizations, towns and villages represented so vibrantly speaks to the spirit of our region.
