In Your Opinion: Pipeline route bad for business, environment
I wish Constitution really cared about creating jobs by providing lower-cost energy from natural gas (Mike Zagata, March 29, 2014). Constitution, in fact, chose the route least suited to this purpose.

In Our Opinion: Pets face risk when running wild
"Heartbreaking" is how Carol Mahoney described the death of her two dogs, who were shot in the face by Jared Boice.
In Your Opinion: Gun control efforts are sign of end times
About year ago I was listening to an Emergency Medical Services podcast from Albany Medical Center as I usually do since I am a volunteer EMT/FF.
In Your Opinion: Pipeline foes are likely hypocrites
In March 31 edition, Lisa Barr provides a passionate argument against the "dangers" of the Constitution pipeline and fossil fuels in general. Can I just ask how these purveyors of the truth will be going to these highly important meetings in Richmondville, Afton, Oneonta, and Milford?

In Our Opinion: Make informed decision on flood insurance
To buy flood insurance, or not to buy flood insurance.
In Your Opinion: Board is right to challenge Common Core
Congratulations to the Morris Central School Board for recently adopting a groundbreaking resolution opposing privatization of curriculum, testing and record-keeping in our schools! Morris' resolution addresses mandated curriculum changes as a result of Race to the Top funding from the federal government, itself a flagrant incursion into states' authority over education.

In Our Opinion: City manager concept still the way to go
If at first you don't succeed …
In Your Opinion: Butternuts board acted unethically
I would expect clarifying opinion pieces from Michele Farwell and Scot Lueck as Butternuts Town Board members. They only incriminated themselves of conflict of interest.
In Your Opinion: New Yorkers deserve access to cannabis
Thanks so much for your recent editorial supporting medical cannabis in New York. New Yorkers still do not have access to this medicine, despite compelling evidence of its efficacy for treating pain, insomnia, the loss of appetite and nausea associated with treatments for cancer and AIDS, and a host of other ailments.

In Our Opinion: Budget looks good enough on paper
It's telling that the fact that New York managed an on-time budget this year is still a headline-grabber.
In Your Opinion: White House needs to show some backbone
The current crisis in Ukraine is an example that a new Stalin (Putin) is alive and well. The limited sanctions will not force Putin from raping Ukraine. Historically, old Stalin under his lackey, Khrushchev, starved to death more than 10 million as part of his collectivization effort.
In Your Opinion: Huskies' owner has share of blame
This is an open letter to Carol Mahoney, whose two beautiful huskies were shot to death.
In your opinion: New comics take the low road
In these times when schools and the public are spending great amounts of time trying to remove bullying and harassment from everyday life for children and adults, The Daily Star has a new comic, Take it From the Tinkersons. Between it and Dilbert there are more inappropriate comments and statements of degradation and put-downs. Insults and moments of stupidity abound.

In Our Opinion: Cheers
To the Walton Theatre, Blendos Summer Leagues, and Klugo's Parkview Place.
In Your Opinion: Obama voters reaping what they sowed
So here we are, America trillions of dollars in debt, the looming disaster of Obamacare (which is going to get much worse), the Middle East in flames, Russia on the march in Crimea and possibly further, and I get such comfort watching the so-called leader of the free world on Sports Center doing his basketball brackets. I'm not really sure we are getting our money's worth.
In Your Opinion: Let's turn the tide at midterm elections
Voters need to wake up and demand answers to what is going on in government.

In Our Opinion: Two hot races shaping up for fall
Anyone looking forward to an interesting election season this fall should already be licking his chops over a couple of juicy races that have sprung up recently.
In Your Opinion: Truth about pipeline hasn't been told
"He-said/She-said" Fox News-style coverage belongs in sports pages. The Daily Star has ignored Constitution pipeline supporters' misrepresentations most recently by failing to invest reporter time on DEIS investigation. Thus, our first responders, infrastructure and social fabric are imperiled. One lie -- pipe capacity and pounds per square inch pressure -- was easily detected.
In Your Opinion: Let's give up violence for Lent
For some, Lent is a time for reflection, soul-searching and repentance for unrighteousness.

In Our Opinion: Casino would make sense for Schoharie
The 13-3 vote Friday by the Schoharie County Board of Supervisors to support developing a casino on land near Howe Caverns is intriguing, to say the least.
