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: 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.


April 15, 2009: Health Care

in

To the Editor:
Hippocrates, the founder of clinical medicine and author of the code doctors practice by, was erased from the health system more then 67 years ago. His code died at the start of WW2. It’s true.


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 1, 2009: Tea party planned in Stamford

in

To The Editor:
This is an invitation to everyone to meet on April 4 at Rexmere Lake in Stamford. There will be a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party at 7 p.m.
The reason for this reenactment is to protest the apparent government bailouts, takeovers, tax hikes, etc. All the way from the federal, state to the local governments. A prime example is the federal government cannot even break even on a cafeteria for the congressman, how can they possibly expect to run the business of an entire country.


April 1, 2009: Why is it that state isn't playing?

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to respond to a letter written by Ms. Bauer in the Catskill Mountain News.
First, if anyone had a question as to rather this development that she represents is trying to entangle itself with the Belleayre Ski Center,  I guess she has pretty well answered that question. All along, this development has been trying to ride in on the tails of a public Belleayre Ski Center to benefit its own agenda. She states that Belleayre Ski Center is a treasure  and brings in 200,000 visitors a year, then I guess Belleayre Ski Center is doing well.


April 1, 2009: Belleayre Resort a win-win proposal

in

To The Editor:
Scott Gould and Bev Rainone got it wrong on Crossroads. Here’s the correct information. They allege taxpayers have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars on SEQR. Not true! Crossroads paid virtually all these costs ourselves.


March 25, 2009: American rights must be defended

in

To The Editor:
Babette Kiesel wrote a letter last week telling me I should be ashamed for exercising my God-given American right to speak out against injustice and petition my elected officials. She says I’m greedy and calls me a “scofflaw.” She wonders if I want to set a precedent. Ms. Kiesel, and the people trying to pass this new law either don’t understand what’s going on or else they don’t share the American values that most of us live by.


March 25, 2009: Medical services are truly essential

in

To The Editor:
This was our first experience calling the Roxbury Rescue Squad and being administered to by the Margaretville Emergency Room staff. We did not realize how valuable and helpful the members are to our community. They are truly dedicated and a much needed asset to all. All of our town’s people should think about how necessary and needed the Roxbury Rescue Squad is to our community.
