Letter: My industrial nature

Friday, November 21, 2014

Hey Ms. Gouch, my five conservative children (real God-fearing Americans) live in the Houston area and I’d love to visit them or live there in my golden years, but finances prohibit it, Social Security being what it is. I’d love to see the oil fields with those awesomely behemoth rigs pumping away. I love mechanical things working away, it’s a guy thing. I’d also like to see the refineries in … 0

Letter: Remembering the vets

Friday, November 21, 2014

This is a “thank you” to the following for the outstanding recognition of our veterans on their day. Individual thank you cards were sent to the Newton Street School, Applebee’s Restaurant, F. L. Roberts Golden Nozzle Car Wash and Service Stations, Clarkdale Apple Farm and Big Y. To those that placed a Veterans Day thank you ad in The Recorder, we thank all … 0

Letter: Think bicycles

Friday, November 21, 2014

I was very touched by the ceremony celebrating the re-opening of the covered bridge on Eunice Williams Drive — a thoughtful honoring of great work in service to our community. But I was also struck that in The Recorder articles about this event, it was repeatedly stated that after 2002 the bridge was open only to pedestrians. In reality, bicycles continued to be … 0

Letter: Defending Madison, art

Thursday, November 20, 2014

The photo and story concerning complaints against Rodney Madison’s outdoor displays in front of his store at 104 Avenue A in Turners Falls were very biased against this artist and shopkeeper. To say that objects were “strewn” on the sidewalk — without the use of quotation marks in … 0

Letter: Tainted advertisement?

Thursday, November 20, 2014

How much money did The Recorder receive to run Kinder Morgan’s half-page advertisement on Page C2 (Nov. 13)? How does this not compromise the paper’s ability to report fairly and without bias on a contentious local issue? Giving Kinder Morgan the editorial space to present its side would … 0

Letter: To our rescue

Thursday, November 20, 2014

It was a dark and anxious day at Turners Falls High School when its long-time building construction program was in a little bit of trouble. After 29 years of delivering quality custom-made storage sheds for sale to the public, the program encountered a problem with its specially made … 0

Letter: Hawley meeting

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

With the Hawley Special Town Meeting over and done with, I think it is appropriate to say thank you to a number of people. First, I want to thank everyone who showed up and voted on the important issues facing the town. In small-town democracy, the necessity of … 0

Letter: Libs lose big

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

According to Cathy Gouch, “Our country will not begin to heal” as long as people like Ken Carville writes letters to the rditor. Hey Cathy, Ken isn’t the problem. It’s you libs who are the problem. In 2008, the Obama zombies chanted “Yes We Can” and elected a … 0

Letter: What are they hiding?

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

We, too, like your story (“Gas co.: Current customers covered”, Recorder, Nov. 12), would like Berkshire Gas and Kinder Morgan to produce the specific data on the capacity of their existing gas supply lines and the volume of gas they are committed to supply to their current customers. … 0

Letter: Wireless issues

Monday, November 17, 2014

The Nov. 12 article “WiredWest or wireless?” presents Warwick’s broadband network as an alternative to the high-speed optical fibre network that WiredWest has proposed. It is important to realize that Warwick’s solution is unique to Warwick. A wireless (radio) network depends upon a line-of-sight path between a user … 0

Letter: Where FERC stands

Monday, November 17, 2014

There is only one thing to know and remember about the pipeline atrocity at this juncture. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will not be accountable to the public interest or social or environmental well-being. FERC is in the pockets of industry and corporate power — i.e. The … 0

Letter: Sobering state

Monday, November 17, 2014

Holy Gas Pipeline Batman! Here’s a sobering statistic that should make any gas pipeline proponent shutter. For opponents, I suggest that this be forwarded to your respective political faction. By the way, pen my name in the opposition column. According to Popular Science Magazine, 800 is the number … 0

Letter: Fun First Friday

Sunday, November 16, 2014

Thanks to the organizers and merchants involved in Nov. 7’s First Friday event. Although I have been to several, “Mystery on Main” is my favorite theme so far. Dark, brisk, windy — a perfect evening for a mystery! What a treat it was to meet my partner and … 0
