Letters to the Editor


Pleasant trip to dentist chair

To those readers out there who have a great fear of the dentist, and have stayed away way too long, please know now that it is no longer necessary!

Crown Point water project issues | Guest Viewpoint

It is imperative that the public not only receive correct information but understand the facts and concepts presented to them in regards to the Crown Point Proposed Water Project.

Takes umbrage with editorial, policy

Two recent Op-Ed pieces, an editorial and a letter to the editor, raise some interesting questions.

Challenge to editorial

I am writing in response to your recent opinion column on the tax treatment of not for profit corporations in the Adirondacks.

CROP walk successful

Thank you for walking and donating to the Ticonderoga Area CROP Walk which raised a record $9,300!

‘Heroic’ response by UMC

The response of the First United Methodist Church in Ticonderoga to the recent fire devastating St. Mary’s School was nothing short of heroic.

Pleased with house vote

I deeply thank our Congressman Bill Owens for signing on to the House resolution 688 which calls for President Obama to pledge our country’s fair share to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization or GAVI.

Non-profits do their part

“Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?”

Editorial misleading

The Valley News Editorial “Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?” implies that not for profits don’t create jobs; paralyze economic development; serve hobbyists and insular groups (many of which represent seasonal residents;) don’t serve the poor; and create towns “preserved in amber” (aka playgrounds for the rich).

EMS needed

Recently one of our community members had a serious heart attack.

Breakdown tax relief received

A breakdown of the tax relief each non-profit receives would be educational for citizens and local governments in the North Country.

Thanks to hospital

We would like to thank Dr. Mary Glickman and Vicki Savage; all the nurses, PTs, OTs, aides and hospital staff, and everyone else at the Elizabethtown Community Hospital, for the wonderful care and concern to our loved one, Nancy Morelli, and to us, her family, when she was hospitalized there in August.

Another victim of crime

To the person or persons who entered my garage on Oct. 14th, and took that which did not belong to them:
