Lessons needed in correct grammar

In the Jan. 10 edition of The Millerton News, two quotes from newsmakers contained egregious grammatical case errors.

The first error was committed by someone who I will assume for the purpose of this letter is a graduate of Webutuck High School.

The quote began, “Sgt. (so-and-so) and myself arrested...”

The second error was contained in a quote from the current superintendent of schools. The offending clause began, “...but myself along with the board are confident...”

Why the pay raise now?
I was compelled to attend the Nov. 8 town budget hearing because I was curious as to why the councilmen were giving themselves a 10 percent pay increase. Oddly, they are only issuing the employees of the town a roughly 3 percent increase. This sounds very “me first.”
The supervisor cut his pay by about $2,400. Well over a year ago the board reduced the funds allocated to then Deputy Supervisor Carl Stahovec (the reduction of those two items is roughly $4,800).

Concerns about the Lehman application before the ZBA

As you read through the Brooke Lehman special permit application, questions and concerns arise. The application mentions dormitories, staff housing and meals provided on site, groups of people being transported primarily by vans, and participants staying for multiple-day retreats (initially up to 30 people with the anticipation of “expanding capacity to 60 overnight participants”).

Strawberry Fair had lots of support
The members of the United Presbyterian Church thank all who came out in the rain to support the annual Strawberry Fair. There were many children with their parents enjoying the clowns, balloons, petting zoo and face painting.

Civil discourse in decline at meetings

In line with the April 12 editorial in this newspaper, I was feeling the need to become more knowledgeable on the budget of the Pine Plains Central Schools. I decided to attend a series of school  board meetings and budget sessions to form a more informed decision before the vote this year.

Durst project could be beneficial
I would like to commend the Town Board for their undermining work on the  Durst/Carvel project. Certain members — Sandra David, Rosemary Chase and newly elected Jim Jackson — for having their agenda against this project.This project would bring more good than bad.

Civil political debate at last
I attended a local political debate for the State Assembly seat in Dutchess and Columbia counties with candidates Didi Barrett, Democrat, and Rick Wager, Republican. If only our presidential debates were as civilized, informed, intelligent and mutually respectful. Although I disagreed on several points with Wager, in this election, I wish there were two seats, because I saw two candidates who appeared to be two public servants who sincerely want to bring about change in Albany.
