Takes umbrage with editorial, policy

Two recent Op-Ed pieces, an editorial and a letter to the editor, raise some interesting questions.

Challenge to editorial

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

Pleased with house vote

I deeply thank our Congressman Bill Owens for signing on to the House resolution 688 which calls for President Obama to pledge our country’s fair share to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization or GAVI.

Non-profits do their part

“Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?”

Editorial misleading

The Valley News Editorial “Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?” implies that not for profits don’t create jobs; paralyze economic development; serve hobbyists and insular groups (many of which represent seasonal residents;) don’t serve the poor; and create towns “preserved in amber” (aka playgrounds for the rich).

Breakdown tax relief received

A breakdown of the tax relief each non-profit receives would be educational for citizens and local governments in the North Country.

Thank you farmers!

A big thank you from Mooers Wesleyan Food Pantry goes out to all the local farmers and gardeners who so generously shared their harvest with us.

Need for United Way never greater

The need for the services that United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. helps support has never been greater.

ACAP thanks

Everyone has heard the adage that it takes a village to raise a child.

Supports Affordable Care Act

I have two relatives whose medical conditions would make them totally uninsurable without the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare).

Grateful for support

As the Child Care program for Essex County, we are fortunate to work closely with Essex County Department of Social Services (DSS) and are grateful for the support they provide.

How has it come to this?

A glance at America today begs the question, “How have we come to this?”

Thanks for golf tourney support

I would like to thank all the teams who played in the 1st Annual Barbara Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament.

Proposition important

I want to inform Willsboro voters of an important local proposition on the November ballot.

Congratulations Elizabethtown!

We now have an update to our 35 year old Comprehensive Plan and for that many thanks are due!
