Letters to the editor

Doty is a good leader

Jarvis, Demong and Demars

Help families have turkey on Thanksgiving

To the editor: As the fall and winter approach us, we are once again thinking ahead to the holiday season. To many in our community, this can mean angst when it comes to feeding their families. The rising costs of fuel for the winter months can take its toll on the grocery budget, and some ...

Passion sets Garcia apart

To the editor: Politics should play no role in selecting a judiciary candidate. In the North Country our tight sense of community reduces extreme ideologies from either party, making it far more common for people to vote for a candidate without regard to party politics. Out of the six ...

Slezak is well qualified

Food for thought on River Walk

To the editor: Many members of the community desired to convert the property that housed three motels on Lake Flower into a continuation of park land along the lake shore. We are now watching a new multi-million-dollar investment being made on that site, which will draw many additional ...

Small business heroes

Small business heroes To the editor: As we head deep into the shoulder season, I’d like to take a minute and thank all the local small business owners. Those who stay open despite dwindling sales and even those who don’t stay open (at least not reliably) deserve some credit because, ...

Bravo, Lindy and Cliff — two fine people
