  • Ready for occupancy?

    Joshua Wood|Jun 30, 2022

    As real estate inventory continues to be scarce in Saratoga, the push to add housing has many contractors working on projects throughout the area. Through that process, however, one construction company appears to have crossed the Saratoga Town Council.

  • On the topic of Climate Change

    Ezra Boileau|Jun 30, 2022

    Before we jump into addressing climate change misconceptions, I want to make known that I am not trying to attack anyone’s personal beliefs or opinions about climate change. The misconceptions addressed in this column are some of the most common I have heard, though there are many others that exist. The statements I will be addressing will be written in bold font, with the explanation written below. Is it global warming or climate change? The answer is both. These terms are commonly used interchangeably—which can cause quite a bit of con...

    Joshua Wood|Jun 30, 2022

In states such as Wyoming, where we have closed primaries, it involves an additional step in which a person must fill out paperwork—often at the election polls on the day of the election—to switch parties. Anecdotally, it has often been Demo...

  • Thanks for the donuts

    Jun 30, 2022

    Dear Editor, Before social media, the best way to for organizations to promote local events was through posters hung in the windows of businesses. Fred Williams volunteered to deliver these posters on his daily round about town. One day, Freddie and I were visiting, and he said, “Thanks for the donuts.” I was left wondering what he meant. A few days later, it dawned on me. Years ago, I asked Freddy to deliver some posters for Soroptimist. I was so grateful, I bought Freddie a gift certificate to the donut shop so he could get a donut with his...

  • Fountain of Youth located

    Jun 30, 2022

    To the Editor of the Saratoga Sun, We recently visited your lovely valley and were so pleased to find two museums of such depth. We are both history fiends and visit every museum and historical site we can. Both the Saratoga Museum and the GEM were quite impressive especially considering how small the population is. We are full time RVers and visit many small towns across the country. It never ceases to amaze us at the enthusiasm and energy of the seniors in these little villages. Maybe it’s the small town attitude, the air or in the water, b...
