First observed in October 1981 as a national “Day of Unity,” Domestic Violence Awareness Month is held each October as a way to unite advocates across the nation in their efforts to end domestic violence. Community and advocacy organizations throughout the country connect with the public and…

A federal court Tuesday granted a temporary restraining order against Gov. Kathy Hochul’s vaccine mandate for the state’s health care workers. There it is: Less than a month in office, the new governor faces a major challenge.

Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen back out into the atmosphere, which in return helps the environment “breathe.” That is what science class taught us. So, cutting down trees, acres of trees to install solar arrays for “green energy,” where solar panel arrays don’t release oxygen…

Back in 1928, Herbert Hoover wanted a “car in every garage”. If he were alive today, with that goal realized, his new slogan might be a “kayak in every garage.” Kayaks are everywhere. It seems like everyone has one.

I read with interest Doug Miller’s letter to the editor concerning professional sports athletes, characterizing them as “monkeys truly running the zoo”, in The Daily News (“Bills brotherhood has become a zoo,” Sept. 8).

So you like our present American president? Why? He allows any foreigner into our country with no standards regarding health, allegiance, anything! All these intruders are law breakers and money takers. What help are they to you or I?

I just loved Bob Confer’s piece, “Newspapers are still indispensable” in The Daily News on Tuesday, Sept. 7. There is nothing like holding a physical newspaper in your hands and reading it. I hope that newspapers never fade away. I subscribe to many of them and enjoy them all.

Lies and misinformation campaigns have fueled the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed more than 618,000 Americans — and counting. Social media posts have promulgated conspiracy theories about the origins of the coronavirus, the severity of the pandemic, treatment options, and, of course, vaccines.

Gov. Kathy Hochul wants state health officials to establish COVID-19 testing requirements for unvaccinated school teachers and expand vaccine requirements for health staff. These proposals come with a significant caveat: Hochul wants localities to set their own policies with minimal advice f…
