Two recent Op-Ed pieces, an editorial and a letter to the editor, raise some interesting questions.
I am writing in response to your recent opinion column on the tax treatment of not for profit corporations in the Adirondacks.
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.
“Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?”
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).
A breakdown of the tax relief each non-profit receives would be educational for citizens and local governments in the North Country.
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.
The need for the services that United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. helps support has never been greater.
Everyone has heard the adage that it takes a village to raise a child.
I have two relatives whose medical conditions would make them totally uninsurable without the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare).
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.
A glance at America today begs the question, “How have we come to this?”
I would like to thank all the teams who played in the 1st Annual Barbara Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament.
I want to inform Willsboro voters of an important local proposition on the November ballot.
We now have an update to our 35 year old Comprehensive Plan and for that many thanks are due!
