Editor, Daily News I would like to thank the staff at the Athol Daily News for a continued pursuit for information and answers from the Mass. Office of Environmental Affairs regarding their plan to provide timber rattlesnakes to the Quabbin Reservoir. Staff reporter Brian Gelinas is showing...
Editor, Daily News Governments are supposed to provide a safe and fertile environment through laws and regulations to allow the engine of economic growth to run effectively and improve the lot of the general population. But governments seem to be more proficient at covering the dark spots in our...
Editor, Daily News Regarding the column, “An open letter from the St. Louis Post Dispatch to Ken Bone, the man in the red sweater,” and “Talking American and Voter Intimidation” Oct. 21 by Jon Hardie. Please give me a shot at a rebuttal. First the “Ken Bone Man in the Red Sweater story.” Facts...
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. I am an ordained minister of the gospel and have read about the teachings of Jesus for many years but there are no such people as perfect...
