Donna Wiley: Is a drive-through-only coffee shop really the best option available?
07-09-2024 3:00 PM

I winced when I read the article about the new drive-thru-only coffee shop proposed for Hadley [“Drive-thru coffee shop pitched for front of mall,” Gazette, July 8].Every time I pass the Starbucks on North King Street in Northampton, I think, “Why is...


Marianne Banks: A momentous and memorable photograph
07-09-2024 3:00 PM

Occasionally there’s a photo in the Gazette that captures something really momentous. Last week there was a photo of the July 4 swearing-in of our newest American citizens [“‘Like a dream come true,’” Gazette, July 5]. Mere days earlier, certain...


Doris W. Madsen: Easthampton emergency
07-09-2024 3:00 PM

The artist tenants at One Cottage Street are in crisis. Their rents are increasing astronomically and they have nowhere to go.The more I talk to the artists, the more I realize that Easthampton has missed the mark in something that should have been...


Mark Frost: South Main Street project
07-09-2024 3:00 PM

I travel South Main Street in Williamsburg quite often and it is a nice residential street. The houses are well kept, and the people are nice. Rarely do I see many bicyclists.This whole project [“Rail trail objections lose out,” Gazette, July 2]...


Peter Gallivan: Like a dream come true
07-09-2024 3:00 PM

Like a dream come true I read with such joy the article, “Like a dream come true” [Gazette, July 5], about the 55 new American citizens who pledged an oath to support and defend the Constitution. This happened within a week of our Supreme Court...

07-09-2024 3:00 PM

Regarding the headline associated with the article about the historic climate bill recently approved by Democrats and Republicans in the state Senate [“Energy bill doesn’t address siting fears,” Gazette, July 6].Thanks, in part, to the efforts of Sen....


Guest columnist Allen Woods: Should we question authority? Or everything?
07-08-2024 4:17 PM

By ALLEN WOODS

Americans spent a lot of time and emotion fighting among ourselves in 1969. We fought over the Vietnam War, the compulsory military draft, and the “counterculture” springing from it. As a youngish man (or oldish boy) nearing 20, I was happy to march...


Matt Levin: Rogue Supreme Court?
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

I trust you are as outraged as I am — or hopefully, better informed than I, you are even more outraged — by the recent rulings by the judicial body formerly known as the Supreme Court.Short of organizing a massive mass water-ballooning of the court, I...


Amber Clooney: Short-term cuts have long-term consequences
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

After reading the June 27 letter to the editor “Don’t mortgage Northampton’s future with short-term thinking”,” I felt compelled to respond. While I understand her concerns about structural issues in the budget, it is disingenuous to say that cutting...


Sarah M. Bachrach: What about money not just words?
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

I appreciate it when entertainment venues recognize the Native American tribe/s that lived on the land. What bothers me is whether it’s a mass shooting or tribal recognition — it’s just words. Words do not correct atrocities and injustices.I believe...


Laura Bogdanowicz: Not really for the better
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

As a fellow baby boomer, Richard McCarthy’s column about technology stuck very close to recent conversations I have recently had with friends [“Handling our devices,” Gazette, July 5].I applaud Mr. McCarthy’s statement that technology does “not change...


Rich and Sue Cairn: What is the future of environment worth?
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

Joe Biden has done far more for the environment than any previous president. He secured many billions to transition to renewable energy, with good jobs in the U.S. He protected millions of acres of habitat. He is rebuilding federal agencies decimated...


Janet Q. Nelson: Honoring independence, freedom
07-08-2024 4:15 PM

The Fourth of July is celebrated across the country with flags and parades. Here in Northampton, Historic Northampton has provided us with another, deeply thoughtful way to gather. Each year we are invited to come together to read “What To the Slave...

07-06-2024 8:19 PM

By JOHN SHEIRER

Dear Mr. President: Here are some thoughts about the recent debate based on my decades of teaching public speaking and persuasion. This will be tough love because I know you’re strong enough to handle it.With all due respect, we thought you’d do...


Jacquelyn Ballance: Why not mediate Main Street disputes?
07-06-2024 8:18 PM

I appreciated David McCutcheon’s July 2 guest column “Common sense needed with Main Street redesign.” Within a few hours I read a variety of wildly differing responses to it on Facebook. I’d like to share my own evolution with this plan here. A couple...


Nina Scott: Thank you, Steve Pfarrer
07-06-2024 8:18 PM

I saw with regret that features writer Steve Pfarrer was retiring after many, many years of service to the Gazette and the arts communities. I do not begrudge him his retirement in any way, but I shall miss his writing very much. Thank you, Steve, and...


Danny Torres: Blame Putin, not NATO
07-06-2024 8:18 PM

I read David Kotz’s recent column because I disagree with him [“Understanding the Ukraine War,” Gazette, June 26]. I assume he understands the war in Ukraine as a proxy battle between the American and Russian empire. America represents the liberal...


David Glassberg: Trust the process
07-06-2024 8:18 PM

Biden won the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 because Democrats believed that, among all the candidates running in the primaries, he had the best chance of defeating Donald Trump. This year, Democrats held no meaningful primary elections...


Mark Foelster: Just say ‘no,’ to everything
07-06-2024 8:18 PM

I moved here seven years ago and was excited to plant roots in a progressive city with a great reputation among residents and visitors. As time goes on I can’t help but think we’re becoming a bunch of folks stuck in our ways and unwilling to take a...


Guest columnist Richard Szlosek: What son’s death did to Coolidge
07-06-2024 7:01 AM

By RICHARD SZLOSEK

 To a casual observer on July 4, 1924, Calvin Coolidge must have seemed the most fortunate man in the nation. It was his 52nd birthday, and just weeks before he had secured the Republican nomination for the presidency. His election appeared a shoo-in...
