Naturally Starched

We got our first clothes dryer in 1985. My mother was on her way to Europe, and this was our crutch: We’d have an easier way to do laundry in her lengthy absence. She returned, the dryer stayed, though it is seldom used. I never developed an affinity for the appliance.

Currently, an estimated 60 percent of Americans order takeout or delivery at least once a week, and online ordering is growing 300 percent ... 27 May 2024 by Susanne Jansson

Not Impressed

Having read last week’s letter by mayoral candidate Barbara Roberts [“A Better Job,” Letters, May 23], I feel compelled to respond. Our mayor, Chris Fiore, has been a tremendous asset to North Haven for many years and has been directly involved in our government in various roles for quite some time. He has overseen policy changes that have been admirable: the Dark Skies initiative to minimize light pollution, new rules aimed at saving our older and larger trees from clearing, lower speed limits on Ferry Road, restrictions on the use of gas leaf blowers, a drastically lower tick population through ... by Staff Writer
