Editor, Daily News Let’s get serious! The only thing worse than the performance of our government over the past decade or so, is the ignorance of some running to replace them. Let’s put some facts together. Our current and previous President failed to provide the leadership expected of them....
Editor, Daily News I am writing in regard to Allen Young’s 3-23-16 Inside Outside column, “A Visitor to our region distorts Middle East reality,” concerning Dr. Jeff Halper’s, the director of the Israeli Committee against House Demolition (ICAHD), visit to the Unitarian Church in Petersham and...
Editor, Daily News Thank you, thank you, thank you to the residents of the North Quabbin area and any others who have supported the Athol Memorial Hospital Auxiliary over the 60 years of its existence, and the Glass Shelf Gift Shop during the 55 years it was under their management. The...
