Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
I am writing in response to Mr. Silverstein’s letter of April 9, in which he asserts that Wilmington has been attacked by China. 
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.

To the Editor,

I was prompted to write by the racist tone of a letter in the previous issue.  My comments are based on a lifelong experience with China, its people,...

Town Meeting had just taken place. The Twin Valley boys’ basketball team had just...
To the Editor,
