Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
While I agree with the sentiment of Mary Brady’s letter to the editor regarding the “Silverstein letter,” I strongly disagree with her reasoning.
I believe most would agree that Mr. Silverstein’s letter was offensive and, at a minimum, borderline racist. I am...
To the Editor:
I recently became aware that the census return in Wilming­ton has been very low.  I believe it was under 10% return.  I heard someone mentioned that they could not do the census because they had not received the paperwork in the mail, and did not have the number they needed...
To the Editor,
Just by wearing a mask in indoor public places we can help flatten the curve we’ve all been seeing on TV and help stop spreading the coronavirus.  
This epidemic will not miraculously go away. Protecting yourself and shielding others by just wearing a mask is a no...
To the Editor,

At an unprecedented time when all communities are...
To the Editor,
In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Rotary Club of the Deerfield Valley Fund Board has assessed the club’s commitment to the valley and its residents. We are working diligently to support the immediate needs of our community: food, fuel, and Deerfield Valley...
To the Editor, 
This week, May 4 to 8, is National Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. In previous years, members of the Twin Valley School Board have shown their appreciation by delivering some breakfast goodies to each school.  We can’t do that this year because the buildings are closed...
