Madoff of the valley
To the Editor,
When the first idea of the Hermitage Club was proposed six years ago, there was so much optimism and promise for the entire Deerfield Valley. I as a homeowner was looking forward to the future prosperity of the valley.
However now as I see all the misfortune that has engulfed the Hermitage I can only see that Jim Barnes may be the new Bernie Madoff of the valley.
His voracious appetite for buying up everything in sight without regard to whether or not he can afford it has unfortunately been put on the backs of the unsuspecting homeowners at the Hermitage. I feel for them.
