Letters

Editor, Daily News A letter to the president: I’m sorry to read that you and your advisors have said that the older generation must learn to sacrifice as other generations have. That was my generation as a child. I knew someone would eventually find our secret. We’ve lived the life of the rich...
Editor, Daily News I’d like to thank R.O. Dufort for the compliment of referring to me as a younger voter. I’m not. I’m pushing 69 years old. Mr. Bouchard only has a couple of years on me but I’m really not sure what difference that makes. Yes, you’re right. Voting matters — it’s everything. It’...
Editor, Daily News If you ever wind up in the emergency room at Athol Hospital, you should hope a nurse like Cynthia is on duty. She sure took good care of me last Friday. Thanks go out to the whole crew there, but an extra hug goes out to Nurse Cynthia. Beth Cummings Athol
Editor, Daily News Who is Donald Trump? Donald Trump is an arrogant, forceful, impolitic straight-talking non-political individual. He has never attempted to manipulate me as a voter, and he has never outright lied to me, as other candidates have via misrepresentation of the facts. Although I...
Editor, Daily News Full disclosure. I have never belonged to a political party; I am an unenrolled voter. During President Eisenhower’s 1951 campaign, I was 9 years old and remember how we kids would joke about the Lucky Strikes cigarette slogan: LSMFT (Lucky Strikes Means Fine Tobacco) and...
Editor, Daily News I felt inclined to write this letter in support of all firefighters, neighbors and surrounding communities after the horrible fire that took two lives in Orange. We must all realize that all firefighters are trained and drilled with regard to firefighter protocol and while all...
Editor, Daily News I would like to respond to Audrey Pagnotto’s letter to the editor regarding my letter, “It’s an Election not a Selection.” I am a 71-year-old man who has been voting for about 50 years. I would never write a letter that would insinuate I was trying to tell people how to vote...
Editor, Daily News I am an 18-year resident of Athol and a proud member of the Democratic Party. I choose that party because it represents my values. On Friday, March 4, the ADN published a letter to the editor from Robert Bouchard. I often read Mr. Bouchard’s letters and always ask myself, “Why...
Editor, Daily News I am one of the many people who spend a lot of time at Silver Lake. I enjoy walking my dog down there. I am also aware of the many problems with illegal dumping, drinking and vandalism that occur.  I have an idea that could improve the situation. Many campgrounds have hosts...
Editor, Daily News As I read Friday’s edition of the Athol Daily News and also their weekend edition, something caught my attention. Rick Kwiatkowski, who is running for Orange Selectman, was inconsistent in his debating of who should run the town’s day to day operations. On March 4, 2016, Mr...
