  • A rallying cry for Warren

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Middletown (New York) Times Herald-Record and was originally published on Feb. 12.

  • Who ‘dun’ it? Mora theater company, that’s who

    “Murder on the Petulant Express” was brilliant. Oh true, some New York theater snob would probably have sniffed, but this isn’t New York, and we are thankfully lacking in a preponderance of snobs in this area. The fledgling thespians of Mora Area Community Theater put together an outstanding dinner/mystery, performed at the Mora Valley Baptist Church last Friday evening. If this event is any indication, the company of Mora players has a bright future.
