Program a success

The committee of the Distinguished Young Women of Moriah would like to offer sincere gratitude to all of the individuals and businesses that made the recent program a huge success.

“LOL!” as they say in internetease. The little front page article in the Jan. 18 issue of the Valley News immediately reminded me of the situation that many feel exists in our society today.

Red Kettle campaign a success

The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign had many wonderful donations to the kettles this past Christmas season and very generous donations to our toy drive with Wal-Mart! T

In April 1775 Paul Revere famously rode his horse to Lexington, Mass., to warn of a British invasion.

Bad weed

I offer anecdotal evidence regarding the intoxication by marijuana and therefore suggest that people wait for properly prepared weed before imbibing.

Blue Box a success

In early 2013, High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care got permission from Jody Olcott, from Essex County IDA, to have a Blue Clothing Donation Box placed on the corner of Tom Phelps Way and Plank Road in Mineville.

Toy drive a success

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire community for their generous contributions to our toy drive.

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

Help the campaign

It has been said that our true character is demonstrated when times are tough.

Ticonderoga firefighters busy

2013 was a very busy and productive year for the Ticonderoga Fire Department.

Kudos to Crown Point

In response to a letter submitted to “Letters to the Editor” by a Ticonderoga resident in the Dec. 28 issue, I must ask, who are you to point fingers at those who stand up for what they believe is in their best interest?
