Resident ready to fight for neighbors

To the editor: To the residents of Church Hill, especially Madison and Union avenues, it is a shame that we and our neighborhood are not considered to be important enough to our village and Jefferson County officials. I have been trying for at least two years to get Village Council to take ...

Letters can be very strange

To the editor: This is the first time that I have made a response to a letter to the editor. This is referring to Rob Denham’s letter “Pathetically desperate” that appeared in the Aug. 18 edition. Over time, Denham has been severe in his attacks on Democrats in letters to the ...
