Well then, what authority can we really rely on?

A View from the Edge

The written word, the true facts we are given, authoritative pronouncements — our lives are governed by authority, by a promise that what we are being told is the real deal, the whole truth, the gospel for our lives. The problem is we are never given all the facts, we are never allowed to share the process of establishing the authority of written material, and we are certainly not educated enough to begin to fully, completely, assess the veracity of someone’s pronouncements.

Why we are here

The Country Curmudgeon

Through the ages man has pondered the meaning of his existence. Well, to be honest, not all men, just those who had spare time for that sort of thing. I use the term “men” here in the general sense, as in “mankind,” not specific as in men and women. To be fair, women usually have more to do, so they have less time for philosophy. How many women do you know that regularly take the weekend off to go golfing or fishing?

The high price of outsourcing our news

The Millerton News Editorial

If you’re perusing this editorial, you are among the many readers of The Millerton News. There is, appropriately, an expectation on your part that as one of the Harlem Valley’s leading local newspapers our news is locally sourced, written and edited by a staff of people who live within the community. In making that assumption you would be absolutely correct.

Mapmaker, mapmaker, draw me a map

The Country Curmudgeon

Why is upstate New York considered up? Well, if you look at a map of New York state, we are closer to the top than, say, New York City, which is clearly downstate. Albany folks, however, call us downstaters. Alaskans call all of us the lower 48. The North Pole is the top of the world and Antarctica the bottom. Our perception of the world is shaped by the way our maps are oriented when they print them.

New possibility for dilapidated building

The Millerton News Editorial

The Millbrook Village Board, led by Mayor Laura Hurley, is steering the village in the right direction as it seeks input from the community on the very lovely, though somewhat shabby, Thorne building. It is undoubtedly a structure worth saving and could become, once again, one of the region’s shining jewels.
