Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Did you know that one in six Gen Z adults identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community? We celebrate Pride Month to publicly include all members of our families and communities who in the past had to hide who they were. Talking about Pride month as a family can make a...
To the Editor,
Next Tuesday and Wednesday, June 22 and 23, PBS will be airing a four part series (two each night) on mental illness. I strongly urge everyone to watch. In my lifetime we have come light years ahead in learning how the brain works, especially if it is not running correctly....
To the Editor,
Recently Haystack Golf Course received a 50-foot flagpole, an American flag, and a Vermont state flag. The pole is now positioned by the pond adjacent to the clubhouse.  The flags are up and lighting installed.  It can be seen from many different locations. It can even be...
To the Editor,
Last week’s Deerfield Valley News contained the obituary of Janet Kierys. It was very distressing to the see the editing done by the paper to inaccurately refer to Janet as Mrs. Kierys. When contacting the paper, I was informed that they were following protocol.

To the Editor,
Nearly half of the governors—23 and counting—have decided to end federal supplemental unemployment benefits for workers in their states. Evidently, they never heard the old adage: Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. In these bizarre times, I guess we have to be...
To the Editor,
Gov. Phil Scott has vetoed two bills, that would have permitted non-citizens who are legally present in the United States to vote in local elections.  He was correct to veto the bills, but I disagree with his reasons for doing so.
In his veto message, Gov. Scott asked...
To the Editor,
Are the fractures and divisions in America today worse today than they were in the 1960s?  In the 1960s no one questioned whether Vietnam existed or claimed that the military casualties were really crisis actors.  No one claimed that China and Venezuela had manipulated the...
To the Editor,
I am writing this letter to let you know that the town of Dover should be ashamed of themselves as to the way the cemeteries look. They are not mowed, stones are broken and very dirty. Take some of the 1% money and put it towards the conditions of the cemeteries. They are in...
