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.
In Your Opinion: Pinkey thinks like a caveman
I've just finished reading Chuck Pinkey's column titled "Obama just isn't cut out for president." I'm having a time-machine moment.
In Your Opinion: Observation rooms may come at a cost
I enjoyed reading about the new "observation" rooms in Fox Hospital since my sister was a patient in one of the first rooms to be completed in July 2014. They are very nice, spacious rooms and give the privacy often needed.

"Post-MOSA planning is long overdue," was the headline on an editorial we wrote in October.
In Your Opinion: 'Tinkersons' are no 'For Better or For Worse'
I have to agree with Jan Contello. "The Tinkersons" is lame and boring. Bring back "For Better or For Worse."

In Your Opinion: America becoming a socialist state
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important!
In Your Opinion: Bernanke is no Paul Volcker
A month or so back, The Daily Star featured a piece by Clive Crook, a Bloomberg Associate who equated the actions of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke with those of Paul Volcker in 1979 to 1980. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In Our Opinion: Cheers
To Mariah Ruff, to a St. Baldrick's Foundation fundraiser, and state fund for fishing access.
In Your Opinion: Obama is usurping Congress' authority
Last summer, President Obama used executive orders to enact 23 gun control laws. The media were saturated with commentary regarding these laws. However, most missed the exponentially more significant issue; Obama disrespected the Constitution and every citizen by circumventing our legislative process for his own political agenda by abusing executive privilege. During his State of the Union address, he promised more of the same! Gun control is one of many issues confronting America, but the issue does not trump the process.
In Your Opinion: U.S. should send troops to Ukraine
I see no reason why we do not send troops all around Ukraine and do the same thing that Putin did!

Some time in the next week, amid as much fanfare as it can muster, members of the New York state Legislature hope to announce that they have achieved -- for the first time since 1974-1977 -- their fourth consecutive on-time budget.
