Editor, Daily News The Thursday Nov. 3 article titled “Petersham residents not pleased with special town meeting article choices” misquoted me and I want to clarify what I said. On page 11, I am quoted as saying: “If the vote fails, residents can’t vote for demolition.” What I was actually...
Editor, Daily News Make no mistake about it! There will be no winner in the presidential election next week! Not Trump, not Clinton, not Republicans, not Democrats, not Americans, not America not even Democracy... no winners! We once prided ourselves as a government of the people for the...
Editor, Daily News Were common sense and good judgement, as well as past experience, lost in the swamp of make-believe reality, for the most part, based on political or private agendas alone, with the personal gain the nexus, regardless of how it affects the rest of America? Are we going forward...

Editor, Daily News Don’t look now, but Mother Nature has changed the seasons. Though fall is a wonderful time of year, it signals something less pleasant — flu season. Flu, or influenza, is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalizations, severe health complications and even death....
Editor, Daily News I have read many letters to the editor but haven’t responded for a long time but felt impelled to respond to what Rev. Erickson had to say.
