Be a leader in your community

One of the qualities of leadership is having a sense of purpose that directs a person to use his or her strengths to help others.

Read works by Adirondack authors

May I call your readers’ attention to three recently published Adirondack books that are interesting, historical and enjoyable to read?

Agrees with editorial

Brittany Maynard is a brave young person.

Thanks for saying yes

We the Johnsburg Emergency Squad wish to thank the residents of Johnsburg for their outpouring of support in favor of Prop 4 this past election.

Common sense party

Jeff MacMakin from Putnam was stating flat fact about our “Democracy was taken over unlawfully on a Christmas Eve” but not in 1923 — it was in 1913.

Voter suppression in Essex County?

Voting is an important right, many would say also an obligation.

Thank a veteran

Every member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars is a veteran who served honorably as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States in a foreign war, insurrection or expedition.

Delaying Social Security could increase lifetime income | Guest Viewpoint

Essex County residents who are nearing retirement age can increase their lifetime income if they can wait a bit to start drawing Social Security benefits.

‘Dracula’ a success

Our Town Theatre Group’s “Dracula” was one our most exciting and successful Productions.

America no longer a Republic

I agree with your editorial, except for the last part. America was founded as a republic, and ceased to be one in 1923.

National diabetes month

November is National Diabetes Month. Dedicating a month to diabetes helps raise awareness of the issues surrounding the disease and of the many people impacted by it.

Editorial far from misleading

The Valley News editorial “Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?” was simply asking a question:

Vote yes on Prop 4

On Nov. 4 the stakes are high for your emergency squad remaining local.

Sees non-profits in a different light

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

Against Prop 4

When EMS is a part of all of the expenses that the town board must consider, it must look at EMS as just one of many town requirements and allocate an appropriate portion of available funds to that purpose.
