Letters to the Editor

To the Editors,
I am dismayed, appalled, disgusted and heartbroken that the current administration and board of trustees of Marlboro College have forged ahead with their plan to merge the college with Emerson with little to no attempt to reach out to the past college community, the town of...
To the Editor,
Concerning COVID-19 virus testing: I thought that the plan was to get as many people as possible tested throughout our population (symptoms or no symptoms). But it’s not so easy. The reason for doing testing was to identify the ailing and also to get a geographic mapping of...
To the Editor,
As many, I am distraught by the sequence of events unfolding rapidly around Marlboro College and its campus.  As an alum and an employee for 27 years, I know the heart of the school and its unique place in the world. While I am slightly consoled by a feasible path forward, I...
