LETTER: Neighbors helping neighbors

To the Editor:

Today I witnessed a miracle in the making. A friend’s barn burned to the ground in September. Nov. 16, it was almost raised from the ashes by his Amish neighbors.

They approached him shortly after the fire and wanted to do a barn-raising for him. He had to have the concrete work […]

LETTER: Bridge Gate Verdict

To the Editor:

After the federal felony criminal convictions against Bill Baroni and Bridget Anne Kelly on charges related to the Bridgegate scandal, it is clear that these persons committed an unauthorized exercise of official functions and failed to perform duties required.

Because of this, like Christie, they too can be subject to a complaint […]

LETTER: Silenced No More: In Support of Hillary Rodham Clinton

To the Editor:

In this current election season, I am feeling like a member of a “silenced majority.” This is not only because as a senior woman I know from history and personal experience how members of my gender were literally silenced for most of human history. It is because I see Hillary Rodham Clinton […]

LETTER: Responds to Comment

To the Editor:

Recently Jackie Schmidts made comments regarding one of my editorials.

First: The Federal Order Systems were created because back in the 1930s dairy farmers were victimized by the prices that milk processors were paying for milk.

The United States created the Federal Milk Marketing Orders to stabilize marketing conditions and to mandate […]

LETTERS: Supports Tenney

To the Editor:

The culprits change, but the lies keep coming. This time, the culprits are special interests and Washington-based political action committees dedicated to restoring Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. They are spending millions of dollars trying to defeat conservative Claudia Tenney for Congress by conducting a smear campaign over the airwaves […]

LETTERS: What is new is not always better

To the Editor: What is new is not always better. Undoubtedly, change is needed in Albany, but, at the risk of the visual image, when it comes to your vote for state Assembly, please do not throw the baby (Magee) out with the bathwater (Albany). This year incumbent Bill Magee will run against Brookfield Town […]

LETTERS: Thanks Red Helmet Society

To the Editor:

I have had an incredible experience.

This 68-year-old great grandmother had not been on a horse in 25 years. My granddaughter gives lessons at Triple Creek Farm and invited me to join the Red Helmet Society. It is like the Red Hat Society except that we wear helmets and ride horses.


LETTER: Supports Tenney

We need someone in Congress who understands what’s going on and wants to help. That’s why I support Claudia Tenney for Congress. Claudia is a small business owner who […]
