Letter to the Editor: Removing historical marker was cowardly act

On Aug. 24, attended the Georgetown Prospect AME Church fundraiser where Mr. Bryan Stevenson, a former member of the church, was the keynote speaker. In June, a well-attended George White historical dedication and marker was unveiled in New Castle. Mr. Stevenson and I spoke about the marker’s recent disappearance. The 10 feet high historical marker […]

Letter to the Editor: Support Endangered Species Act

I am writing in support of the Endangered Species Act, and in opposition to efforts by Congress to undermine this landmark wildlife conservation law. The Endangered Species Act is a safety net for fish, plants and wildlife on the brink of extinction. Since President Nixon signed the law in 1973, hundreds of species have been […]

Letter to the Editor: Regarding PETA’s meat and dairy ‘sin tax’ suggestion

Regarding the letter sent by PETA on the ‘sin tax’ for meat and dairy sales. I recently spoke to a fictitious character on this matter whose insights I thought should be shared in response to the article. PETA suggested scientific data that for the sake of this conversation will be assumed true. It was observed […]

Letter to the Editor: Democratic debates

When I saw the line of podiums at the recent Democrats debates, I was optimistic. That does not mean I am pleased with how they played out. In fact, I was angry. Here we had an outstanding combination of ideas and brainpower. Imagine a White House staff that really knew about finance, employment, environmental issues, […]

Letter to the Editor: Questions about commentary

DSN logo

As I began to read Mr. Carreau’s commentary (7/7/19) I thought the writer had some good points but as I continued reading I changed my mind. Where did Mr Carreau get his evidence about how citizens view the federal govt vs the states? Did he make that up? He feels that “Get Out the Vote” […]

Letter to the Editor: Keep your eyes on the road

I am writing to express my displeasure with all the motorcycle deaths lately. First, a pickup took out seven bikers in New Hampshire. Now more recently a local husband and wife were killed on their motorcycle in the Harrington area. These are just two examples I know of. Drivers need to pay more attention to […]

Letter to the Editor: ‘I saw the sign and followed it’

Today will not only feature fireworks and barbecues, but also plenty of speeches by public figures celebrating and acknowledging our freedoms. But beyond the fabulous displays that stir bad memories in some veterans, the fireworks remind us of the hard won conflicts that resulted in the freedoms many take for granted. Dover’s Green features a […]

Letter to the Editor: A ‘distaste for immigrants’

It seems like only yesterday, although the year was 1980, when my Army Civil Affairs Reserve Unit was given the mission of processing and locating sponsors for the Cuban refugees at Fort Dix after the Mariel boatlift. They came over barefooted and in a few days, everyone of us had the whooping cough. When we […]

Letter to the Editor: What some babies are saying

Because of you there is no light In my world there is only night You robbed me of all things that would be fun I’ll never be able to crawl walk or even run You didn’t want me, so I had to die There is a lot of things that you didn’t even try Childless […]
