Millerton News Editorial

Real and positive

Monitoring the news these days on the national or international front requires a steady and determined attitude in the face of adversity. Or as Merriam-Webster would put it: a stiff upper lip.

Solving a problem

"It’s a climate change problem, of course, because all that trash needs a whole lot of fuel to move it. It’s a social justice problem, because the trash ends up in poorer communities, and it’s an economic and financial problem because it’s expensive to move all that stuff. The good news is, there is something we can do about it.”

Earth Day 2023

Earlier this month at Indian  Mountain School in Lakeville students conducted a trash audit to see what was thrown away over the course of a few days. Of course, the sorting of garbage and refuse revealed a lot of plastic waste, including one-time food items in permanent plastic wrapping.

Brilliant solution

About one in three students in the Webutuck Central School District has enrolled in a health care program right in their school. The staff at this in-house facility hopes to make that more than two out of three in the near future.

Local news

The local newspaper can be greater than the sum of its parts. Today, people can find out what will happen with the weather by reaching for the phone in their pocket.

Intern season

Last summer The Millerton News lost an outstanding reporter, Kaitlin Lyle, who had covered the news for the paper for five years. Many readers still talk about Kaitlin, recalling her byline on so many stories. Kaitlin was moving on to bigger pastures at The News-Times in Danbury.

A Health Assessment

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identifies a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) as a systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis that provides benefits such as improved organizational and community coordination and collaboration, better knowledge about public health and the ways it connects with other activities.
