Letter: Our strategy

Monday, March 2, 2015

The current administration is taking heat for not coming up with a strategy to deal with ISIS. Strategy is defined as a careful plan or method for achieving an end. But if there is no end in sight, as many believe, then perhaps a strategy is non-existent. The question one should ask is not “who” will bring a halt to extremism, but rather “how” will it all play out? There … 0

Letter: ‘Economic injustice’

Monday, March 2, 2015

Elizabeth Warren who was paid $429,981 as a Harvard law professor from 2010-2011 had the audacity to give comments concerning what she calls “economic injustice” at GCC. I guess that goes hand in hand along with her $5.4 million mansion. DAVID KEMPF Greenfield … 0

Letter: Pokey post office

Monday, March 2, 2015

Snail mail ... believe it! I recently purchased a relatively expensive book online from Northampton. Big deal right? You bet it is! I offer you the following authentic tracking of the item from a Florence post office. Before you read the account, please keep in mind that Florence is only 20.7 miles from Greenfield; about 25 minutes down Interstate 91. Ready? Here it … 0

Letter: White guilt

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Regarding Ann Keough’s letter about all the “pain she is in” about so many unarmed black men being massacred by our police officers; I’d like to know what she would’ve suggested officer Darren Wilson, in Ferguson Mo., do when he was being physically attacked by a 300-pound “unarmed” … 1

Letter: Accident reports

Thursday, February 19, 2015

I continue to be deeply disappointed regarding the misleading headlines The Recorder use when reporting on automobile collisions. For example Monday, Feb. 16, “Poor roads cause 3-car crash on I-91” is, in fact, DOWNRIGHT FALSE! Even your own reporting notes that the state trooper said “the drivers were … 0

Letter: Following biathlons

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Those of us who enjoy the combined sport of biathlon cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship have to wait for the Winter Olympics, a four-year cycle, to watch biathlon live on a prescribed television network. What makes biathlon so exciting to watch is the fact that the skier in … 0

Letter: Lift up for sea lampreys?

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

There has been a suggestion that fish ladders could be placed on the Green River dams. The major problem is what species would use them. Based on Connecticut River counts, the sea lamprey would probably be the heaviest user. For those not familiar with the sea lamprey, they … 0

Letter: Embellishments

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

What’s the big deal? Superstar Brian Williams embellished his story about taking fire and being hit in a chopper he was riding in. Lest we forget that Hillary Clinton made a similar statement when she said she took sniper fire while she visited Bosnia in 1996, as did … 0

Letter: Stopping speeders

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Without a doubt, Federal Street from the Federal Street School to Main Street is a dangerous place for pedestrians crossing the street on the crosswalks and in between. Many people have been hit by cars there. It happened to me in January 2011 and the driver took off … 0

Letter: Airplane safety

Monday, February 16, 2015

It was devastating to hear about the disappearance of AirAsia Flight 8501, knowing that my grandparents or any members of my family could have been on that flight. My grandfather had just recently taken an AirAsia flight to travel back to India after visiting my family for the … 0

Letter: Unborn protection

Monday, February 16, 2015

A new Life Conception Act by pro-life lawmakers is being presented to Congress, which, if passed will define unborn children as PERSONS as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution and will be entitled to legal protection — thus cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.” … 1

Letter: Building move, access

Monday, February 16, 2015

Concerning the recent article in The Recorder (Jan. 28) on Davis Street School Administration offices and Special Ed office (second floor). I applaud the mayor’s initiative to relocate the school administration offices. But I have concerns about moving to the Main Street TD Bank building. Specifically, I have … 0

Letter: Anti-smoking efforts

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Peter P. d’Errico pointed out an Islamic state murder to publicize anti-smoking beliefs, in an effort to point out the over-zealous nature of their action. Well, Peter, Adolf Hitler, one of the all-time bad guys, was a reformed smoker and hated it. Under his leadership, Germany started anti-smoking … 0
