Editor, Daily News Aug. 19 is National Honey Bee Day, a day to celebrate one of the most important and widespread pollinators of our food and flowers. And we need to do more to protect honey bees and all of our pollinators. Honey bees pollinate many of the foods we eat, from blueberries to...
Editor, Daily News Having been involved with the selling of gasoline for about 25 years I understand the basic premise of pricing the product on the “street.” The basic cost to the retailer including taxes and freight are comparable. Some of the bigger chains own their refineries and are...
Editor, Daily News Thank you for publishing columnist Allen Young’s thorough and well researched article about dental hygienist Lynn Trinque. It is a human interest piece, but really sheds light on a profession that serves the public by educating and helping maintain their oral health but...
