Editor, Daily News Politics and political parties have always been a part of government. However, today, politics have become an addictive virus turning Washington into a political swamp, inasmuch as major decisions and choices affecting the safety and well being of our country are made based on...
Editor, Daily News On Nov. 13, 2015, the terrorist group ISIS attacked Parisians and foreigners in Paris, France. After the shootings and bombings were over, 130 people were dead and over 300 wounded. A barbaric act perpetrated by apocalyptic Muslims. How do you reason with individuals who...
Editor, Daily News I read with great interest about the timber rattlesnakes coming to the Quabbin Reservoir soon if they are not already there. Why is this necessary? We do not need this type of poisonous scaly vertebrate introduced to our neighborhood. Many local people use the Quabbin...
Editor, Daily News I’m writing in regards to the recent article in the Athol Daily News that headlined a plan for placing timber rattlesnakes in the Quabbin Reservoir.  I would like to offer that I do not agree with this plan for several reasons and I am shocked that the DCR sees it as a step...

Editor, Daily News I guess the Orange selectmen and superintendent of schools disagree with the Orange voters. At the Orange annual town meeting the voters of Orange overwhelmingly approved the warrant article on PARCC testing which was presented to them. The last paragraph of the warrant...
Editor, Daily News I am not the only reader interested in gender equity. In a long and detailed front page article that ran above the fold in Wednesday’s Athol Daily News the pay positions typically held by women got short shrift. I am sure the Phillipston consultant pointed out the...
Editor, Daily News I stated in a recent letter to the editor that copyrights and patents don’t expire. That isn’t true. They do expire. My apologies for the incorrect information. The date Jan. 1, 1978 is important. In short, they expire depending on when the work was created, published,...
