Jan. 6, 2010: Southern style is a different world

in

To The Editor:
As the South braces for another snowstorm I thought my old Yankee friends would like to know how Virginians “handle” this winter weather. Firstly, when there is a threat of snow, there is a run on in the local grocery stores of bread, eggs and milk. The latter two are a puzzle since they can easily spoil if the power goes out, which it is most likely to since we get more ice than snow, which often takes down the trees or their parts.


Jan. 6, 2010: Freshtown work is appreciated

in

To the Editor:
We would like to commend Freshtown Manager Robert Griffith and his associates and staff for their hard work and extend to them our best wishes for 2010.


Jan. 6, 2010: Considered opinion about warming

in

To The Editor:
John E. Cerullo, in last week’s letter to the editor, fundamentally agreed with my assessment that some scientist will bend the truth in favor of their financial source. By his own example of a scientist involved in the tobacco fiasco he makes my point.


Dec. 30, 2009: Recognize garbage when you read it

in

To The Editor:
In response to Stuart E. Buswell’s letter in the December 23 issue, I would like to submit that the scientific fact of Global Warming, and of humanity’s exacerbation thereof is not a political issue, but a scientific one. I seriously doubt that the scientists who worked diligently to determine that mankind is threatening its own extinction expected to become involved in what has become a political and media circus.


Dec. 30, 2009: State's gas drilling EIS is flawed

in

To The Editor:
For a change, Catskill community leaders are welcoming the latest move of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to safeguard its water supply by prohibiting gas drilling within or adjacent to the city’s watershed. Unlike many constraints of DEP policies, a ban on drilling is as essential to the future of the Catskills as it is to the city’s very survival.


Dec. 30, 2009: Not a clue about the benefits of hunting

in

To The Editor:
As I write this response to Ms. Cirincione’s absurd letter in last week’s paper defiling Ryan Trapani’s very cogent and well- thought-out letter I must bite my tongue. If we are in the Dark Ages, as Cirincione suggests, Cirincione is from another planet. Sadly, she has not a clue about the science and factual material in Trapani’s letter.


Dec. 23, 2009: Overwhelmed by community support

in

To The Editor:
I am overwhelmed by the show of support from this community of which I have been a part of for more than six years. I trust that during this time I have served you with the best of my ability and I hope that I will be able to do it again in the future should the circumstances change.


Dec. 23, 2009: Hopes an agreement can be reached

in

Editor’s note: The following letter was written to Margaretville Hospital CEO Edmund Morache. The writer asked that it be printed here as a letter to the editor.

Dear Sir:
My name is Stanley Boguski. God willing I will celebrate my 81st birthday on February 7, 2010.
Thus far, my primary doctor, Jaikumar Ravunniarath, has helped me manage my multiple health problems.


Dec. 23, 2009: Global warming is a lot of hot air

in

To The Editor:
The cat is out of the bag, Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted through fraud and misrepresentation.


Dec. 23, 2009: We're still in the dark ages

in

To The Editor:
Answering Ryan Trapani, he is biased and mistaken. Deer and other wildlife do not need people to regulate their populations. In fact, they are better at it than humans. The biggest problem we have concerning forests at this point in time is human development.
