Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
During these challenging times, postal employees are working hard to ensure residents stay connected with their world through the mail. Whether it is medications, a package, a paycheck, benefits or pension check, a bill or letter from a family member, postal workers...
To the Editor,
As we shelter in place, many of our local businesses are either shut down or working a minimum capacity. 
The Deerfield Valley is filled with many great organizations that are helping residents and we are grateful for that. These organizations need all the help we can...
To the Editor, 
I commend The Deerfield Valley News for its freedom of speech policy.  I’ve written several letters to the paper in recent years, some of them strongly disagreeing with the paper’s position – and they published every letter, without changing a word. In the world full of “...

We are not under attack by China. Nor are we under attack by people with out of state license plates. Wilmington, if it is indeed under...
To the Editor,
I am so sorry that Eric L. Silverstein - see letter of April 9 in the Deerfield Valley News - has fallen ill.  
I believe he has a virus called trumpitis.  It is seen as an illness manifesting itself in individuals who cannot discern truth from fiction.  
To the Editor,
As we do our best to cope with the COVID-19 global pandemic, going to the store for essentials feels a bit scary right now. We all need stuff, so we do it. 
However, I am concerned and saddened when I go into a local market or store and some employees are not wearing...
To the Editor,
