Letters to the Editor

To The Editor,
In regards to the most recent flooding.
What is it going to take before the state decides the benefits of cleaning out the rivers will outweigh the damage flooding every five and a half months causes?
Also, how about the state or town taking the opportunity to...
To the Editor,
I don’t want to feel a crackle run up my chest when I breathe anymore. I noticed it a few years back when I got sick. Every time I took a breath, I felt my windpipes quake. I hated it then. I hate it now. I’m 21 years old, and I’m addicted to tobacco products.
To the Editor,

We were surprised and pleased to see so many town of Dover employees,...
To the Editor,
I always enjoy reading Claudette Hollenbeck’s columns and appreciate her wisdom and humor. Ms. Hollenbeck, this is long overdue, but I want to thank you for all the words of wisdom and for enlightening us all on both the horrors and joys of aging.  I hope you soon settle...
To the Editor,
I read with interest Wendy Manners Seaman’s letter to the editor about short term rentals (STRs) this week. Not only was it well written and thorough, she brought up many important points that I fully support, especially that the residential district should be mainly for...
