Labor Day celebration

TO THE EDITOR: The Catholic Community of Holy Name and St. Matthew’s, AuSable Forks announces its annual celebration of Labor Day for Monday, Sept. 2.

A major part of this celebration and an AuSable Valley tradition is the Labor Day parade, with this year’s theme: “Adirondack Luau” (theme optional).

Once again, the parade will line up at 9:30 a.m. on Palmer Street and begin at 10 a.m., moving down Main Street to the reviewing stand near the Holy Name Church, where the parade will conclude.

We are seeking organizations, groups and individuals to march in this year’s parade. If you have a float, antique or classic automobile or other interesting item that you would like to display in the parade, we invite you to contact Norman Hatch, who will be setting the lineup for the parade. You will need to contact him before Aug. 20 so that he can establish the lineup list that is used to announce the participants in the parade from the reviewing stand. Last-minute arrivals without reservations will be placed at the end of the parade.

Please contact Norman Hatch, P.O. Box 31, AuSable Forks, NY 12912, phone: 647-5783.

I pray that you have an enjoyable summer season, and may God continue to bless you and your family with his peace and joy each day.

Obama negatives

TO THE EDITOR: Shallow minds aren’t havens for deep thought.

A recent Letters to Editor submission chastised my past writings and exemplified the contrast of varying viewpoints. I wish the article had displayed more intellectual substance to provide provisions for larger debate. Lacking facts or particulars, it was a void narrative or “wishy-washy,” especially for 70-year-old potential “grownups” like me.

Now let’s get to the facts or lack of them; the writer didn’t state one Obama accomplishment. He would be hard pressed to do so; it must be a real challenge to defend a obvious lack of achievements.
