Letters

Editor, Daily News Mr. Risatti’s recent letters inspired me to write this. Apparently, Hillary is his choice for president, and Donald Trump is not. Fair enough, but I suspect whoever runs as a Republican, Mr. Risatti still would not vote for them. His letters have all of the usual ridiculous...
Editor, Daily News People who live in nursing and rest homes are the same people who helped build and support our communities. They come from all walks of life. We grew up with them, around them and connected with them via work, friends, family, and neighbors. Although they now reside in a...
Editor, Daily News Dear Community: I know that recently there have been a few public statements made by various individuals and news outlets questioning the effectiveness of the role of school resource officer. I just wanted to take a moment to reiterate the importance of this role and to...
Editor, Daily News I don’t get it! Election day is less than seven weeks away and Donald Trump is still riding high on his horse. He said a mouthful when he said, “I could shoot a person in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and get away with it,” and he is proving it every day! It is common...

Editor, Daily News I recently saw the choices for a new mascot design for The Mahar Senators. Sorry, but I am totally confused. Both choices are of Roman soldiers, not senators. And come to think of it, the naming of the school is not an historical reference to roman times, but it is a reference...
Editor, Daily News About those signs and ribbons on the Royalston Common: I’m guessing that a lot of people in Royalston and elsewhere in the North Quabbin — not everyone, but a lot — could agree with the following statement. “Every life matters. But it’s worth saying that black lives matter...
Editor, Daily News On behalf of water and wastewater utilities throughout Massachusetts, I ask all residents to “Imagine a Day Without Water” on Thursday, Sept. 15. On that day, a national coalition including water and wastewater officials, business and community leaders, and environmental...
