Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
What a wonderful place we live. A place where community takes care of community from birth to death. Joy is shared as well as sadness touches all, full time residents, second -home owners and visitors. In this trying time of pandemic all our emotions are on high alert but...
To the Editor,
Thank you, Lu Scheier, for continuing to raise awareness about tAhe importance of wearing face masks. This is a very crucial thing for everyone to do. I certainly don’t like to wear one, and I don’t necessarily like to follow rules. But this is a critical rule. United States...
To the Editor,
This goes out to our family, friends, and community: thank you for being Boyd strong.
As our family grieves for the passing of Cleon and Leon Boyd, we wanted to let you all know how much each and everyone of you means to us. The outpouring of love and strength from...
To the Editor,

To the Editor,
The valley is losing a dedicated, generous, knowledgeable public servant.

We were aware that the town had a fire department, but not how it...
To the Editor,
