March 12, 2008: What a gem

in

To The Editor:

Last night I had the good fortune to see the Open Eye Theatre’s production of “Secret Garden.” As a second homeowner in the Catskills with an apartment in New York City, I see my share of Broadway shows, but I’m always surprised at how much talent is hidden in these hills. Hats off to Amie Brockway for giving Margaretville its own theater and a place to showcase the talents of so many gifted people whom you may know as the “butcher, the baker, or undertaker.”


March 12, 2008: Paved paradise

To The Editor:

I hope that the Margaretville Planning Board as well as the Middletown Planning Board has taken into consideration the type of buildings these proposed Dollar Stores will build. The look of the buildings will adversely affect the ambience of Margaretville and Arkville.


March 12, 2008: Bad policy

in

To The Editor:

With‚ÄÇBelleayre Mt. Ski Center‚ÄÇabandoning plans to expand‚ÄÇon the eastern side toward Pine Hill, the remaining expansion of the ski center would only be for the purpose of giving the proposed Highmount Spa Resort ski in/ski out access to the rejuvenated slopes of Highmount Ski Center.‚ÄÇ
The Belleayre expansion is now nothing more than a gift of citizens’ tax dollars and environmental security to Crossroads Ventures.


March 12, 2008: Special evening

in

To The Editor:

Recently The Roxbury Arts Group successfully solicited funds from Kids in the Kaatskills to implement an innovative cultural program for students in our community. The “Rising Star” program afforded five Roxbury Central School chorus and drama students the opportunity to work “one on one” with professional voice trainer Patty Dell and musician and instructor Kent Brown to help further refine their singing and performance skills. Last Friday evening, RAG hosted a professionally presented program that showcased these talented and expressive teenagers.


March 12, 2008: What's the Story?

To The Editor:

I am livid!
Here we are, well into March 2008 and not a word about Fleischmanns sewer hookup reimbursements. In fact, there’s been no one to talk to. Ms. Wendy Buerge of the M-ARK Group directs me to the Fleischmanns Village Clerk who is literally “out to lunch.” No one knows anything. Rumors are flying.


March 5, 2008: Not just junk

in

To The Editor:

While we understand the emotions behind one Fleischmanns resident’s letter to the editor last week, we feel compelled to respond to the negative sentiments about our little village.


March 5, 2008: All's well...

To The Editor:

My compliments to the staff of Margaretville Memorial Hospital.
I went to the emergency room on February 1 with a severe headache and dizziness, not being sure if I had a sinus infection or a tooth abscess.


Feb. 13, 2008: Foul play

in

To The Editor:
I’d like to address two articles in last week’s Catskill.
The first being about the Dollar Store and the zoning issue. It seems to me that the people who want progress and economic development in Margaretville are the same people who want to stop it at every turn.


Feb. 13, 2008: Illegal contract

in

To The Editor:
I recently attended the second Shandaken Town Board meeting of the year conducted under the leadership of Peter DiSclafani which included a resolution to hire Ferrandino Associates, a Westchester County consultant, to prepare comments on behalf of the Town of Shandaken regarding the scoping document for the Belleayre Resort.


Feb. 13, 2008: Get the facts

in

To The Editor:
It has started early.‚ÄÇ The new Shandaken Town Board has‚ÄÇbeen in office barely a month and the over-blown attacks are already flying.‚ÄÇ The level of hostility at the February town board meeting was‚ÄÇreminiscent of another time in our not-too-distant past.‚ÄÇ
