Guest columnist Brian Cooper: Fearful of autocracy?We are well protected
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

By BRIAN COOPER

I quite enjoyed the opening paragraph of Jon Huer’s opinion piece predicting that fascism is on our immediate horizon [“On our last Independence Day” Gazette, July 1]. Particularly amusing was his humorous and deliberately hyperbolic description of a...

Charles Schmid Jr.: Really?
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

I saw the article about Tractor Supply [“Tractor Supply is ending DEI, climate efforts,” Gazette, July 4]. They have the right to run their store any way they want. Some agree with what they decided, which is our right. Any group cannot take their...


Shirley Forrest Nomakeo: We need a warrior in Washington
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

There are migrant families sleeping on mats in the international terminal at Logan Airport, and as reported in the Boston Globe, Gov. Maura Healey said that a man accused of a recent migrant crime entered the U.S. through a federal program. We are a...


Gerry Weiss: ‘Targeted’ killing of Hamas leaders?
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

A recent CNN headline read: “At Least 90 Palestinians reported killed in Israeli strike targeting Hamas military chief.” The news article goes on to say that the site bombed, Al-Mawasi, was “designated as a safe zone for Palestinians fleeing the...


Ellen Koteen: Comparative market analysis needed at One Cottage Street
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

Thank you for your coverage of the newly formed Cottage Street Studios Tenant Association and our effort to meet with the management of Riverside Industries in an attempt to work in partnership to find a solution that meets the needs of both sides....


Stephen Armstrong: On Trump assassination attempt
07-15-2024 4:54 PM

I find it hard to comment evenly about the Trump assassination attempt, because he has demonstrated repeatedly how little sympathy he has for people other than himself, and because he has been just plain nasty and criminal. But this event brings forth...


Columnist Sara Weinberger: Democracy, future is in our hands
07-14-2024 10:00 AM

By SARA WEINBERGER

Every day that I read The New York Times headlines since the June 27 Biden-Trump debate, it feels like Groundhog Day. The lead story repeatedly focuses on the need for Biden to exit the race. He’s too old, too feeble, too lackluster, too stubborn,...


Guest columnist Jonathan Kahane: Bragging is just so gauche
07-13-2024 9:46 PM

By JONATHAN KAHANE

 I don’t like braggarts. I seem to find myself in their company more and more these days. It makes me feel quite uncomfortable, whether I’m in their midst or simply reading about them in a book or journal, or even listening to them drone on during...


Emmett Barcalow: Focus on what Biden and Trump have done while president
07-13-2024 9:41 PM

Most of the mass media’s coverage of the presidential campaign seems to be laser focused on Joe Biden’s capacity to perform well in debates and interviews, given his age. (Although Trump is only three years younger than Biden.) As usual, the mass...


Emily Soltanoff: Column ‘spot-on’
07-13-2024 9:41 PM

Thank you, Karen Gardner, for your spot-on and delightful piece, “A Ray of Light Amid Dark Developments,” [Gazette, July 10]. It was so engaging that I think you may have reached the ears, hearts, and minds of some who may not have been paying...


Kirsten Taranto: Appreciated though-provoking column on Biden
07-13-2024 9:41 PM

I wanted to send a word of praise for publishing Ian Rhodewalt’s excellent column “Biden should resign over role in genocide,” [July 10]. We have been subscribers to the newspaper since moving here four years ago. Even though the Gazette is probably...


Columnist Bill Newman: The fireflies of July
07-13-2024 7:01 AM

By BILL NEWMAN

From my Gazette column of August 1996 I miss the fireflies of July. A secret galaxy born from the still, overflowed waters of the Connecticut, they dance up the hillsides that surround the Meadows of Northampton into the night sky. For years we have...


Guest columnist Terrence McCarthy: Memories made in Easthampton
07-12-2024 4:07 PM

By TERRENCE MCCARTHY

 I’m proud to be able to boast I am a product of the mill town in which I grew up. The man I am now was made in Easthampton. Not unlike what was manufactured in the red brick-walled factories in which my mother and father toiled back in the 1950s and...


John Connolly: Kudos for perspectives on Russian invasion, state’s power play
07-12-2024 4:06 PM

Kudos to both John Sinton and David DiDonato for their recent opinions in the Gazette, the former rejecting the idea that Russia is not in the wrong with its invasion of Ukraine and the latter about how eastern Massachusetts wants our “forests,...


Maureen Groden: Support state representative candidate Bridget Matthews-Kane
07-12-2024 4:06 PM

Thank you for covering the 4th Hampden District state representative race between incumbent Kelly Pease and challenger, City Councilor Bridget Matthews-Kane. Southampton was re-districted after the 2020 census to be represented along with most of...


Olin Rose-Bardawil: Control of the river highlights risks in harnessing green power
07-12-2024 9:01 AM

By OLIN ROSE-BARDAWIL

For many, the natural beauty of western Massachusetts is a cornerstone of what makes this region so special. For me, the area’s wild places help to shape its distinct regional identity.Yet as Raymond DiDonato clearly conveyed in a recent guest column,...


Iyko Day: Zionism in 3D
07-11-2024 8:05 PM

I would like to respond to J.M. Sorrell’s column “Zionism for Real” [July 3], which accuses anti-Zionists of antisemitism. Underlying her conflation of Zionism with antisemitism is a commitment to seeing Zionism in only one dimension: as a morally...


Tom Riddell: Community support for Northampton schools
07-11-2024 8:05 PM

On July 4, Gazette reporter Alexander MacDougall wrote about the final approval of the Northampton Public Schools budget, which he described as “putting an end to a long debate over the city’s schools — for now anyway.” He’s got that right. The fiscal...


James Maiewski: Full speed ahead
07-11-2024 8:05 PM

It appears that some people’s concept of common sense is at variance to my own. If you can suspend your disbelief, imagine all automobiles traveling in the Central Business District under 15 mph.At this speed, simple roundels could replace traffic...


Craig Barringer: Jones Library — There are other opinions
07-11-2024 8:05 PM

The recent column concerning the Jones Library debate [“Why trustees are seeking to rebid Jones project,” June 21] was very helpful in that it made clear the trustees’ position: It’s not about the building, it’s about our opinion, namely that the...


Vicki Elson: What's even more important than the next president?
07-10-2024 6:00 PM

As I write, my NuclearBan.US colleagues are sweltering in Washington, D.C., urging members of Congress to remember that no matter who is president, we must do much more, right now, to address the twin existential threats of climate and nuclear...
