OUR VIEW: It's great to be back doing what we love
OUR VIEW: A clean break is needed, not timid hedging that hopes he’ll go away on his own
OUR VIEW: Democracy shines while Trump and transparency tumble
We can think of several incorporated villages in the area that we would put much higher on our list for dissolution or consolidation than Lake George.
Oh that there were more discussions and disagreements about art.
It was wrong before it was right before it was wrong again.
Public ignorance and blind party loyalty are a candidate's best friend.
Teetering on the brink of failure, President Joe Biden may be approaching even rockier roads this November, as congressional midterms threaten to upend what’s left of his modest, moderate agenda and his approval ratings hit an all-time low.
A time-honored Washington axiom holds that one should never attribute to scandal what could be explained by garden-variety incompetence. In the case of the Secret Service’s mysteriously missing text messages, however, mere ineptitude doesn’t quite fit the facts.
The house where I was raised had an open shelf rule. This meant my brother and I were allowed to read anything, no matter how inappropriate or beyond our years. We never had to ask.
Quite obviously, the Biden plan isn’t working yet, especially when it comes to curbing persistent supply chain backlogs.
Property tax assessments need to be fair.
At risk of arguing with its pandemic success, Canada is too timid at relaxing cross-border COVID regulations. It’s hurting both countries and, at this point, to no discernible public health benefit.
At a moment when the world should be racing to prevent the worst effects of global warming, the Supreme Court just made it harder for the U.S. to cut carbon emissions from power plants quickly and cost-effectively.

Monkeypox is a viral disease, distantly related to its far more deadly cousin, smallpox. So far this year, it has been discovered in dozens of countries that are generally not familiar with monkeypox, with about 113 cases in the U.S., 15 of them in Illinois.
The legalization of cannabis for recreational use has perversely harmed the people who have used the drug for medical purposes for years. Many patients are unable to obtain medical marijuana because of bureaucratic and technology failures within state government.
The gun legislation moving through the U.S. Senate is less than the moment actually demands, but it represents real movement, nonetheless. For that, give some credit to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.
Fewer than half of eligible Americans have received a third COVID vaccine shot despite clear evidence of its benefit. That booster shot improves your odds of avoiding even mild omicron. So why haven’t more people gotten it?
So much for living and learning. And forget any imaginary ability for “getting at the core issues,” “being able to explain them properly” and “getting consensus on them.” This is the same Carl Paladino that Western New York has seen over and over again — boorish, imprudent and offensive.
Teachers are trained to elevate young minds, not to gun down people wielding assault weapons who burst into their classroom intent on mass murder.
It should not go unnoticed, as lawmakers in Albany recessed for the summer, that they are leaving unfinished their obligation to have an earnest go at ethics reform.
