Editor, Daily News Too often we take the volunteerism in our small towns for granted. Equally, we take those that work for us the same way. Last Tuesday, Nancy Blackmer (town clerk) did a herculean job of running two elections at the same time. This lady picked up the task and executed it with...
Editor, Daily News Tuesday night I watched in stunned disbelief. The numbers I saw couldn’t be right. Is it possible that the majority of my fellow countrymen and women voted the way that they did? Could our beliefs about what is fair and right be so misaligned? American citizens voted for the...
