To the Editor,
As a retired middle and high school teacher in the Deerfield Valley for 30 years, I have had many opportunities to hear youth perspectives on matters of substance use, including tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana. In general our youth reflect the values and beliefs of the...
To the Editor,
In discussions with many second-home owners who reside in Wilmington throughout the year, we support the revote on May 10 to reverse the prior vote to allow the sale of marijuana in Wilmington. As second-home owners, we are not allowed to vote but we care deeply about what...
To the Editor,
