Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Last week’s Deerfield Valley News front page heralded the build out of fiber by Consolidated in Wilmington and Dover. The story also prompted a number of valley residents not in Wilmington and Dover to reach out to me with concern. Folks in towns like Whitingham, Searsburg,...
To the Editor,
Part of my frustration with the gun control conversation is that liberals have their hearts in the right place but rarely know enough about guns to make effective policy. Banning assault weapons as a main strategy assumes that there is a meaningful difference between what...
To the Editor,
On behalf of the American Legion, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Wilmington Memorial Day ceremony on Monday.
A big thank you to Lt. Colonel Rene Bloomer, who gave a very heartfelt and emotional speech; the Quilters of the Deerfield...
To the Editor,
I proudly support Nader Hashim in his run for a seat in the Vermont State Senate. As a former state representative in the Vermont House, having served as a state trooper, and as a BIPOC Vermonter, Nader has a uniquely broad perspective on the issues we face in Windham County...

To the Editor,

To the Editor,
We are running for re-election to the Prudential Committee of North Branch Fire District #1 as our one-year terms are expiring. All committee terms going forward are for three years so that no more than two positions turn over in the same year.
No longer are we...
To the Editor,
In the travel and tourism industry, we often refer to this time of year as the “shoulder season.” It indicates a lull in visitors to Vermont and thus a down time for businesses. Don’t be deceived.
For a successful summer and fall, this is when we prepare for the busy...
To the Editor,
Approximately 50 community members of all ages met at The Dover School on a beautiful sunny Green Up Day to volunteer their time to help clean up our town. Many green bags of trash were collected and Dover looks much better due to everyone’s efforts.   
A big thank...
