To the editor of the Woodstock Times:
Modocs, Meet the Dumbclucks
The Ulster County Legislature took the cake last week for uninformed decision
1. The legislature approved an agreement to let the Modoc Tribe
(Carpetbaggers from Oklahoma, apparently) open a casino in Wawarsing.
legislator [who voted for it] said: "The entire process is problematical
and most likely will not come to fruition."
3. All Republican Legislators
voted for the casino. Republican county legislator Edward Jennings, of Wawarsing
said, "I didn't have a clue. . I didnít like the way we did it.. It was
done much too fast. . . " and, "Frank Murray [County Attorney] said
is a good document so we went ahead and passed it. But it doesnít mean
anything." [WHAT'S THAT AGAIN?] At least credit to him for admitting to be
clueless! The legislature is offering sell it's soul for the illusion of quick
bucks from a most destructive endeavor.
