Letter: My trip to Israel ... a vacation in a war zone!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I just returned from a trip to Israel where I inadvertently entered a war zone! My husband, son and I went there for my eldest son’s wedding as he had met an Israeli girl. Unfortunately, shortly before we were scheduled to go, three Israeli boys had been kidnapped and killed and things had heated up exponentially between Israelis and Palestinians. Immediately before our son’s wedding, a rocket was aimed at … 0

Letter: Why no rifle range?

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Why no rifle range? I have very fond memories of Camp Apex and Paul Seamans. Although the camp offered many activities, the rifle range was my favorite. Frankly, I was surprised to read that it is no longer used. About eight years ago, I wrote a letter to Mr. Seamans. Here is a portion of the letter: “Almost every time I pick up … 0

Warwick pulls support for pipeline

Letter: Dispensary delays

Friday, July 18, 2014

The law commanded the agency to have at least one treatment center open and serving patients in each county by early last winter. The law is also explicit that until treatment centers are open, qualified patients with a recommendation or their designated caregiver registered with the department may … 1

Letter: Pipeline resistance

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I think Mayor William Martin, Gov. Deval Patrick and other professional politicians are too quick to accept offers of “economic renewal” from any proposed gas pipeline company of which Kinder Morgan is only one. Extreme vigilance is needed by all of us who reside in western Mass. (and … 0

Letter: Court errors

Thursday, July 17, 2014

To say that the Supreme Court justices have erred in placing corporations above people, and that Congress needs to find a way to fix this is the same as saying that my opinion is greater than those of the highest court in the land — such arrogance! The … 0

Letter: Hummus choices

Thursday, July 17, 2014

The recent tragic events in Israel/Palestine — occasioned by the senseless killing of Israeli and Palestinian teenagers — lead us to raise our voices in support of the historic, rights-based call to the international community for Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) targeted at Israeli oppression in Palestine. Where … 0

For those of you that have taken an issue with the stickers on the front page of The Recorder — I think they are a creatively clever way to advertise. They add a unique touch to the front page. You do know they peel off! ROBBIN TERAULT Montague … 0

Letter: Lesson from Atlantis

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I imagine most readers are at least somewhat familiar with the legend of Atlantis. The enduring myth of an ancient technologically advanced civilization might serve as a warning to us today. As I understand it, they messed with forces beyond their control, and were destroyed. To cut a … 0

Letter: The Mideast mess

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I am a former United States Marine and would no doubt be described as a hawk rather than a dove. Yet given the recent events in the Mideast, Iraq, Afghanistan among them, I have to feel that we have wasted badly a large number of our young military … 0

Letter: Suboxone’s use

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Addicts don’t use suboxone to get high, but to lessen the symptoms of withdrawal and to reduce cravings by binding with the opiate receptor sites on cell walls. Whereas a schizophrenic is controlled by voices, an addict is controlled by craving. Suboxone increases the likelihood of remaining clean … 0

Letter: Keeping watch

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

To those of you folks so inclined to be concerned with the National Security Agency, (NSA) and their alleged electronic snooping into possibly your emails, I’d like to offer the following data-miners to bolster your paranoia: Amazon.com; Ebay; Facebook; Instagram; Overstock.com; Twitter; any online dating service ... this … 0

Letter: Threat to solar

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

I’m concerned about the future of solar electricity (aka photovoltaics/PV). The Massachusetts House bill H4185 threatens to seriously restrict solar incentives and options for homeowners, small businesses, and community solar, endangering local jobs and limiting the potential to offset fossil fuel. As the 2012 Solarize Montague coordinator and … 0
