Keep bullhead feed
A plea to the Morley Fire Department: Please, please continue a wonderful tradition and restore your May Bullhead Feed fundraiser. (Even Wally Siebel praised its outstanding quality and he is the “ultimate North Country foodie.”) I believe that not only was it an effective fundraiser but also a wonderful community service project.

Ritchie: We can do more to protect our children
To the Editor:
The Caylee Anthony case sent shockwaves through the nation, as millions of parents wondered, among other things, how a mother could fail to report the death of her child.
It’s no secret that every second is precious when a child disappears. The first 48 hours can often mean the difference whether a child is found and whether they live or die.
That’s why I am cosponsoring the “Protect Our Children Act” to create tougher penalties for failure to report a missing child.
