Editor, Daily News After seeing the results of the Super Tuesday voting, I have come to the conclusion that our election system is broken. I do not understand how a candidate who is running third in the election results can stand before the American voters and promise the people that Donald...
Editor, Daily News It was a wonderful experience voting at the Athol Senior Center on Tuesday. The workers deserved a huge “thank you” for going out of their way to offer their services to handicapped customers like myself. Hats off to Athol election workers! Also, a huge “thank you” to the...
 The Oculus Rift, left, and the Google Cardboard, right, offer different types of virtual reality experiences. 
“What’s old is new again.” It’s a phrase that reminds us not to throw away that plaid flannel shirt or Doc Martens because they will come back in style at some point. The most recent example of this, at least for me, is the triumphant return of virtual reality. When I was a kid there were all...
We have two words for the Ku Klux Klan: Get out. We don’t want you here, you don’t belong, and you certainly do not represent our community’s values. We refer to a planned Klan rally Saturday in Pearson Park in Anaheim that erupted in violence before it even began. Of six Klan members who showed...

The Wild Knights continue to flourish in 2016! We had more than a dozen Knights in attendance again last Thursday. The level of camaraderie seems to be growing right along with the group. The kids definitely seem to be developing a strong sense of respect and friendship towards their fellow...

DEAR ABBY: My husband cheated on me and told me to find somebody else. He moved in with the other woman and spread lies about me, telling my in-laws that I had cheated on him. He was on probation, so I reported to his probation officer that he was lying about where he was living. He was arrested...
