What is so hard about having basic television?

Letters to the Editor

Once you practice to deceive, what a tangled web you will weave. What happened to free TV, etc. Now we have Internet, computers and cell phones and what else? Do you want all that? I don’t. Then we got Time Warner; of course that was a pay deal. They sold out to Spectrum, more money; on ...

The need for debates

Editorials

Debate-ducking seems to be the sport of the season here in New York, but it's not a very sporting way to conduct a political campaign. We were disappointed that our incumbent congresswoman, Republican Elise Stefanik, did not agree to attend a debate before a live audience or a public forum ...

Hatred must be confronted

Nov. 6, is a very important day for all New Yorkers. It is the day we have the opportunity to bring about much needed change to government in New York.

Letters to the Editor

Democrats have lost voters from the blue and white collar Afro-American, Hispanic, some from the suburban and big city and definitely from the urban base. So, what do they have to do? They go after the illegal immigrant vote. Why else are they for open borders, sanctuary cities and amnesty for ...

Letters to the Editor

In 48 years of exercising my right to vote, never have I been so moved to exercise that right in a midterm election. And never have I been more excited about the slate of Democratic candidates running for public office. On the federal level in New York’s 21st Congressional District, we ...

State debt collection crackdown

Anyone who has ever dealt with the nuisance of bogus debt collection should be pleased by the news of a ban on such practices involving some of the worst purveyors of this form of illegal “business” that the region has ever seen. A court order made public last week detailed the terms of ...
