Letter to Editor: Recognizing the loss of 1.5 million Armenian Martyrs

April 25th, 2016

April 24th is the 101st commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. Our history is well documented; save for some who think that revising history somehow changes it. We should never forget April 24, 1915, through 1923, when Armenian intellectuals and community leaders were rounded up and murdered, or forced into death marches. This massacre left over 1.5 million Armenian dead from the actions of Young Turk Government members.

To the Editor: After following a trail of smelly garbage that fell out of the holes in the cheaply made, ever shrinking, mandatory town garbage bags, I felt compelled to write this letter. When the town of Northborough decided to start using pay-as-you-go garbage bags I wasn’t thrilled, but accepted that the decision was likely […]

Last year at a Nike factory in Oregon President Obama said, “No trade agreement is going to force us to change our laws.” This year, in response to a World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling, Country of Origin Labeling (C.O.O.L.) on imported beef and pork was repealed. Whoops. The choice was between repealing existing U.S. law […]

Letter to the editor: Abused animals need your help

January 27th, 2016

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]

To the Editor: There are too many horror stories of animal abuse featured in the media. The most heartbreaking are puppy mills and the hoarding of animals. We turn away from the pain because we like to believe that someone somewhere must be addressing the problem. Sadly that is not true. Neither puppy mills nor […]
