Let’s not wait for a tragedy to unite us

Editorials

On Wednesday as we listened to people recall Sept. 11, 2001, we were reminded of how the purpose of terrorism is not primarily to kill people but to paralyze their spirit. That can be accomplished by sowing fear, and also by sowing division. We remembered how Americans defeated the 9/11 ...

Join Global Climate Strike Sept. 20

Watch for motorcyclists

Columns

A few years ago I was in Ticonderoga for a meeting, having scheduled it to be able to stay and go to my child’s track meet. (This was the first and only year my child ran track. Perhaps he knew that I would probably never attempt to go to another track meet.) I approached a roundabout and ...
