Letter: Fire letter doesn’t tell whole story

To the Editor, In response to the letter of gratitude authored by Mr. Richard Cherry, chairperson of the Town of Mamaroneck Housing Authority and published in your Feb. 27 edition, I would like to add my voice. The Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department indeed put forth remarkable effort and skill in extinguishing the fire at […]

Letter: Democrats remember Ross, Stampleman

    To the Editor, The Rye City Democratic Committee mourns the loss of two stalwart local Democrats. Obituaries for Warren Ross and Nancy Stampleman are available in local newspapers so we won’t repeat the details of their professional achievements and loving family relationships, important as those were. Instead, we want to express our immense […]

Letter: An alternative to the deer problem

    To the Editor, In Westchester County there is an abundance of deer. They are too close to us, our plants and homes. Would it not make sense to put down on salt blocks a substance that would prevent deer from multiplying? Should a measure be put in place, it would limit the increase in deer. Doing […]

Letter: Children’s group submits county FOIL

To the Editor, In her capacity as chairperson of the Campaign for Kids, a coalition of more than 50 non-profit organizations and individuals concerned with creating and sustaining strong community-based youth development programs for Westchester youth, Cora Greenberg, executive director of Westchester Children’s Association, has submitted a FOIL records request to Westchester County. The request […]

Letter: Cuomo’s proposal is bad government

To the Editor,  We strongly oppose the governor’s proposal to eliminate newspaper public notice of proposed constitutional amendments. Instead of publishing public notices, the Board of Elections would post an abstract and brief description of the proposed amendment somewhere on its website for three days in the week prior to the election. The secretary of […]

Letter: Thanks to the fire department

To the Editor,  I want to publicly express my thanks and appreciation to the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department under the leadership of Fire Chief Noah Goldberg. On Feb. 11, we had a fire in an apartment at the Hommocks Houses, at the corner of Weaver Street and Post Road. The quick well-orchestrated response of […]

Letter: Radon is a killer

To the Editor, January was National Radon Action Month and the American Lung Association of the Northeast is reminding New Yorkers that radon can affect their lung health. Many may not be aware of what exactly radon is; radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that is found in soil and forms radioactive by-products […]

Letter: Where’s all the letters

To the Editor, Considering the fact that all the newspapers and magazines I read, except for the New York Daily News, are publishing very few, if any, letters from their readers, I conclude that the people no longer have any opinions or their opinions are not worth publishing. This is a very sad state of affairs. […]

Letter: Leave the politics out of abortion

To the Editor, As Americans celebrate and reflect on the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling 42 years ago, I urge Congress and state legislators to listen to doctors and medical experts who know that legal abortion is safe, and that politicians should not interfere in personal medical decisions. Despite the fact that abortion is one […]

Letter: Think before you rush to judgment

    To the Editor, In the last year, we have witnessed attacks on our police and condemnation of our long fought judicial rights. While many people felt with the election of a bi-racial president (yes, President Obama is both black and white) tensions would ease and a new dawn would be upon us, it appears […]
