Elmira Telegram Is Back

Welcome back to Elmira Telegram!

Since the website first launched in 2014, we’ve undergone a lot of changes. However the one thing that didn’t change has been the site’s commitment to providing not only accurate local news, but also a place, away from social media, for neighbors to talk about current events.

If you’re like me, you miss the days of opening a newspaper and finding not only news but other interesting content such as columns written by your neighbors, or letters to the editor. Sure, social media offers lots of opinions, and our forum, “Twin Tiers Living” is a great place for conversation, but in a lot of ways, it’s not the same.

So Elmira Telegram is back.

Twin Tiers Living will continue to operate as an adjunct to this site. I still love a good forum style site, which is good for a spirited conversation. Elmira Telegram, on the other hand, is best suited not only for straight forward delivery of news, but to best present some of the amazing writing and talent from neighbors throughout the region.

I encourage you to explore this site, as well as the forum, and see all we have to offer. In addition to great columns in our Local Writer’s section ( as well as the forums where even more columns have been archived ) but check out the Opinion section, where we’ll feature guest views and old-fashioned “Letters to the Editor“.

As always, I appreciate your support of the site. If you have any questions or ideas, don’t hesitate to contact me at elmiratelegram@gmail.com
