  • Editor's Notebook: Twenty-two words, and 553 writers, to appreciate from 2014

    I don't usually have time to trade emails or chat with every reader who writes a letter to the editor. I'll write or call to confirm letters, but beyond that, unless a letter needs clarification, or if the writer asks a question about our policies for publishing letters, I don't usually fo...

  • The Right View: This Christmas, say a little prayer for us

    For me, Christmas is a time of reflection. A time to take stock of the year past, and things I’d like to see changed going forward. Nothing as schlocky as your typical New Year’s resolution, but rather, a refocusing on my family, and pondering what is happening to us as a nation. ...

  • Letter: Migliaccio in Freeport District 3

    I have followed Joe Migliaccio's voting record as councilor in Freeport District 3 for many years. Joe takes time to consider, research and weigh the issues that affect not only our district, but Freeport as a whole. He brings courage and integrity to the many hours he devotes to his work.

  • Letter: Arno for Freeport Town Council

    I am pleased to support Katherine “Kate” Arno for the District 2 seat on the Freeport Town Council. We are fortunate to have such a talented candidate at a time when key decisions affecting the town’s future will have to be made. Kate has lived in Freeport for over 20 years, and...

  • Letter: Arno will bring quality to Freeport council

    Freeport’s election process is supposed to be a non-partisan exercise in selecting the candidate who best represents our own thoughts and ones who will participate in municipal government with clarity, integrity and maturity. Kate Arno, the senior manager/senior policy associate at ...

  • Letter: Freeport candidates must denounce vandalism

    I have been involved in the Freeport political scene since 1960 and have campaigned and been elected to office several times. I am appalled at the sign rage evidenced this year by supporters of some candidates in the Town Council races. The most egregious is the destruction of signs in the Distr...
