Letter: Backing McMillan

Friday, October 2, 2015

I strongly support Jesse McMillan as a candidate for Greenfield School Committee. This energetic young professional is a graduate of the Greenfield school system and is now a public school teacher in Pittsfield. Even when he was a young teen, Jesse showed obvious potential and a willingness to commit enormous amounts of energy and time to worthwhile town projects. I first met and worked with him when he volunteered at … 0

Letter: Stop Kinder Morgan

Thursday, October 1, 2015

It was so good to see a seventh-grader voice his opinion about the pipeline. We have to get more teens interested in this topic because they are the ones who will be raising their families here. They have to understand that if the pipeline does go through the health of future generations are at risk from illness, air and water pollution, soil erosion … 0

Letter: She ‘gets it’

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Having met and spoken with Patty Morey Walker, I have had the opportunity to ask tough questions of this candidate. Particular emphasis was put on the financial responsibilities placed upon all taxpayers in Greenfield by the current administration and her plans to end its out-of-control spending. Candidate Morey Walker has been quite direct and to the point in her responses. As a former … 0

Letter: Candidates’ stories

Thursday, September 17, 2015

I read with interest Anita Fritz’s stories about Mayor Martin and Isaac Mass, regarding the beginning of their campaigns for re-election to office. I look forward to reading similar stories by her, or by any Recorder reporter, about the other candidates for office, especially those who are running … 0

Letter: The brakes are on

Thursday, September 17, 2015

Last night at GCC I heard the sound of the collective squealing of brakes as dozens of residents whose homes or businesses are in the proposed path of the Tennessee Gas Co. pipeline project gave testimony at a scoping meeting organized by Sen. Stan Rosenberg. People spoke eloquently … 0

Letter: Cartoon just wrong

Thursday, September 17, 2015

Re: The cartoon on the 9/11 edition editorial page, depicting “Saint Reagan” and “Bad Obama.” I must have missed the announcement. When Did Rupert Murdoch complete his acquisition of The Recorder? That’s the only way one could explain the spurious notion that President Obama has “brought a once … 0

Letter: Arc housing issues

Thursday, September 17, 2015

I am extremely disappointed to read that the United Arc decided to build on Summer Street. I would have thought that they would be neighborly and decide on a larger site that presented less problems to the neighborhood. I agree wholeheartedly that there is a need for elderly … 0

Letter: Stop Obama

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

In the November elections, America gave the Republicans a mandate to stop President Obama and the Democrats from wreaking this country and we expect that this carnage be stopped and reversed. Republicans now say that they want to cooperate with Obama so that he will move to the … 1

Letter: Presidential qualities

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

With all due respect for Maura Healey’s desire to see a woman in the White House as president of the United States, this is not about gender, or color, it’s about policy. At least for those who care about our nation’s direction, and destiny. If Hillary were wise … 0

Letter: Traveling too fast

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Cars, trucks and motorcycles traveling on Lampblack Road and Adams Road: PLEASE SLOW DOWN! The posted speed limit is 30 mph in spots, 35 mph in others. Not 45, 50, 60. Over the years I have seen a school bus that had been converted into a welding truck, … 0

Letter: Poor dog

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

I am writing in response to the two recent articles in the Recorder concerning the “nuisance” dog in Greenfield. This poor animal doesn’t stand a chance with an owner who cares so little for his dog that he can’t abide by a couple of simple rules. It doesn’t … 0

Letter: Aiding the Sisters

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Being a former student of the Sisters of St. Joseph, I was so happy to read about Bishop Rosanski’s “million dollar” gift, giving to the Sister’ Retirement Fund. What a wonderful gesture! We all know by now the Mother House of Mont Marie in Holyoke was sold to … 0

Letter: Refugees’ flight

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

On some remote highway on the arduous journey from war-torn Syria to Germany a big rig pulls off to the side of the road. In the box are dozens of refugees who paid human traffickers much, much more than they could afford to smuggle them further along. There … 0
