Editor, Daily News What a great community we live in! On July 27 at Market Basket, an overwhelming number of people came out to give thanks, show their appreciation and support to all members of the public safety workers from our area. Those honored were from the nine towns that make up the...
Editor, Daily News Korea, the Forgotten War, has been over for 63 years and still it is “forgotten.” There has been nothing said for the last 63 years about anything other than how Kim Jong-un is dabbling in nukes. Here are some facts about the last 63 years: From 1954 to 1992, there have been...
Editor, Daily News One size fits all? In the human race as a whole, no one thinks the same, no likes or dislikes the same, and no one’s perceptions are the same. That is what makes us human beings inherently possessing intelligence far above all other creatures, and that is what makes some of...
Editor, Daily News This is in response to Rhonda Melanson’s letter in the July 19 edition of the Athol Daily News. I thank you for saying that it is more than my dog “making the mess.” The poop is along the very edge of the road, not creating a hazard. Also, there is little to no activity in...
Editor, Daily News I would be all for punishing Tom Brady “if” — I say, “if” — it were proven that he were guilty of something. I think that any so-called circumstantial evidence is all the NFL people have. To me, the circumstantial evidence they have is that the Deflate-gate situation came...
Editor, Daily News This is in response to Kathy Howard’s letter in the July 15th edition of the Athol Daily News. Yes, I have been complaining of the dog poop on the road. I never said it was any one dog that was making the mess. In fact, it is several dogs. And just because it’s a woodsy area...
Here’s a surprising thing about Dallas Police Chief David Brown: Despite of all the national attention he’s receiving, he really doesn’t care for the limelight. Brown is studious, not terribly talkative and absolutely serious about his mission. I knew him for years in Dallas and have often...
Editor, Daily News This is in response to the “Pick up the poop” letter in the June 16 edition of the Athol Daily News. I was recently approached by a neighbor of mine telling me of a resident who resides on Enfield Drive who has been complaining of dog poop in/on the road. Apparently, this...
Editor, Daily News Hillary again has sidestepped an incoming ICBM. She has been cleared of breaking laws that Joe Six Pack would do time for, all in the name of this excuse, “I did not do it intentionally,” in the Benghazi fiasco and the email cover-up. I read that as an admission of guilt — I...
Editor, Daily News On July 4th, I usually re-read the Declaration of Independence and another document like The Federalist or a significant presidential inaugural address. This year I read President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Farewell Address to the American People (1961) whose message remains...
