You do have a voice

Cabinet Editorials

We are certainly pleased with ourselves, we the voters of the United States of America, where we turned out “in force” for last week’s midterm elections. In force. Indeed. If by “in force” we mean more than in the midterms of four years ago, well, then one could accept that as ...

Some random thoughts

Cabinet Editorials

• My favorite day-after-the-election headline comes to us from the CNN web site: “GOP congressman, who lamented not being able to call women ‘sluts,’ loses to a woman” Ah, sometimes irony is just too cool for words. It was Rep. Jason Lewis of Minnesota who, after dorko Rush ...

Time to fund library is now

Cabinet Editorials

It will be interesting to see what architects come up with as they plan an expansion to Wadleigh Memorial Library in Milford. The library’s trustees are beginning to search for an architect to develop one, and we hope the plan will find eventual support. In 2015 and again in 2016, a $5.6 ...

Cabinet Editorials

Get educated and vote

Cabinet Letters

With the Nov. 6 general election less than 30 days away, I’ve got a simple message for every potential voter: Get educated and go vote! This is a midterm election where typically only a third of voters participate. Why should 1/3 of voters dictate what happens to everyone else? Why ...

Chandley for Senate

Cabinet Letters

Give women a chance

Cabinet Editorials

We were a little disappointed at the turnout for the Women Run! forum at the Amherst Town Library, not because of the size of the audience, but because all audience members were women. While it was important for women to hear an empowering message from women who hold elected office — state ...

Time to reflect

Cabinet Editorials

Not far enough

Cabinet Letters

I read the letter to the editor headed “Disgusting and Vile Attack” and wonder at those who said they were glued to their TV during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and testimony, yet missed the part where the FBI was instructed by the current resident of the White House not to follow-up with ...
