  • Letter: Elect Chace in House District 46

    I have been voting since 1940, have worked all my life, and am a World War II Marine Corps veteran. I was sorry to learn that Durham loses Rep. Ellie Espling due to redistricting.

    I am a liberal and follow, and usually agree, with what Edgar Allen Beem writes in his column. But in "Bumping, grinding and ...

  • Letter: Why the rush for the Payson property?

    Even though I live in Wildwood, I believe that shorefront should be open to all. However, the more I learn about the Payson property proposal, the more doubts I have. The property is very tidal, and therefore attractive to an array of birds, clams, horseshoe crabs and various vegetation. Question...

  • Letter: Greens should appreciate Democrat De Angelis

    There are many things I admire about the Green Independent Party platform, especially regarding the environment, but I will not be voting for their candidate in the House District 33 race. I will instead be voting for Democrat Rosemarie De Angelis. Rosemarie has a long history of supportin...
