Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

Stewart’s Stores has asked to expand its footprint so it can ruin the perfect set up we have now.  Similar in size to Route 20, Stewart’s want to expand by removing a valuable and important property so it can double its gas sales and provide more seating.

Let’s review this request for its pros and cons.

To the Editor:

We would like to take this opportunity to commend both the East Berne and Berne volunteer fire departments for their unbelievably quick response to a 911 call to a fire at our home.

To the Editor:

Stewart’s recently submitted plans, for a building addition, to the village of Altamont.  Upon this submission, the planning board rightfully requested that Stewart’s “knock the building down and start over” and we completely agree.

To the Editor:

An anonymous savant once wrote, "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."  I would like to publicly commend two Hilltown individuals who have made that judgment.
