Editor, Daily News I was sitting here watching movies from the 40s to the present day and noticed the behavior of the press (read: reporters). Whether it be an auto, bicycle or train wreck, the press is always there with a microphone stuck in the victim’s face asking questions like, “How did you...
Editor, Daily News On behalf of the Franklin County Community Meals Program’s board of directors, we wish to thank the Orange-Athol area for its support during the holidays this December. FCCMP operates the Orange Food Pantry and offers the free community meals on Mondays and Thursdays at the...

Editor, Daily News I am so sorry to hear of so many young loved ones who have died this year. How many more will there be in 2017? How many could you have helped if we had taken the time to spend a while with them? Given them a phone call, and tell them how much they mean to you? Encourage them...
