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,...
Editor, Daily News My version of an Inconvenient Truth: Al Gore and his take on “Man-made Global Warming” has everyone’s knickers tied in a knot. I’m in the process of interviewing schools to see what students are taught about subjects like the history of the planet. Prehistoric science,...
