I enjoy getting and reading your bi-weekly paper and am glad you added the new feature called “Ask The Observer” because, as many people in Rhinebeck know, I like writing letters to newspapers about concerns that I have.
Being a native of Rhinebeck and well-known as a mail carrier long retired, I remember many things in my 86 years. I saw the obituary for John Costa, 88, in the Aug. 28 issue. I remember John well when he served as mayor for a five-year term.
He was a fine man and we were proud to have him as mayor.
