Sees non-profits in a different light

I am writing in response to your recent opinion column on the tax treatment of not for profit corporations in the Adirondacks.

Takes umbrage with editorial, policy

Two recent Op-Ed pieces, an editorial and a letter to the editor, raise some interesting questions.

Challenge to editorial

I am writing in response to your recent opinion column on the tax treatment of not for profit corporations in the Adirondacks.

Pleased with house vote

I deeply thank our Congressman Bill Owens for signing on to the House resolution 688 which calls for President Obama to pledge our country’s fair share to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization or GAVI.

Non-profits do their part

“Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?”

Editorial misleading

The Valley News Editorial “Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?” implies that not for profits don’t create jobs; paralyze economic development; serve hobbyists and insular groups (many of which represent seasonal residents;) don’t serve the poor; and create towns “preserved in amber” (aka playgrounds for the rich).

EMS needed

Recently one of our community members had a serious heart attack.

Breakdown tax relief received

A breakdown of the tax relief each non-profit receives would be educational for citizens and local governments in the North Country.

Ski center good for EMS

It is a commonly voiced myth that Gore Mt. Ski Center prejudices the Johnsburg Emergency Squad’s ability to serve the residents of Johnsburg and that the taxpayer is paying for, “all those skiers and city folk who get ambulance service for nothin’.”

Thanks for generosity

The cast and crew of the Witherbee’s Open Mic wish to extend a hearty thank you to all that participated in our DVD event to benefit the Harry Chapin Foundation and the Wounded Warriors Foundation.

The answer is none

During this Election Year of 2014...

Need for United Way never greater

The need for the services that United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. helps support has never been greater.

Supports Affordable Care Act

I have two relatives whose medical conditions would make them totally uninsurable without the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare).

Praise for coach

Here at MCA we do not like to praise men, but we love to praise people who are allowing the Lord to work through them.

Bottle the festival excitement

I am writing this in the afterglow of the 18th Adirondack Distance Festival and my first experience with this amazing Schroon Lake institution.
