Letter: Attacks on judges

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Recent Republican personal attacks on Social Security judges threaten our way of life as Americans and the separation of powers upon which this nation was founded. Damage was inflicted upon our Social Security Disability Administrative Law Courts as a result of Congressman Daryl Issa’s committee hearings held during the Fall of 2014. During the congressional Hearings, congressional Republicans issued subpoenas on administrative law judges with high approval ratings. The Republican … 0

Letter: Illegal drivers

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Every time there are police log entries in The Recorder, there are many which pertain to “Hit and Run” accidents. One has to ask: “Why are there so many?” ANSWER: If a driver of a vehicle has an expired or no valid license and/or registration and/or no insurance ... Do you think he/she would remain at the scene? I think NOT! This begs … 0

Letter: French King development

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

The continuing discussion of a retail store on French King Highway bears a short comment and some reminders: ∎ It seems accurate to say that the seven abutters constitute “The Neighborhood” and that these seven parties would bear the impact of the project. Should they bear the entire burden of the impacts? Property values are among those. ∎ This location was chosen by the developers … 0

Letter: Powerful exhibit

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Last weekend, I happened upon a new exhibit at the Greenfield Community College campus in the gallery on the south end of the main building: House/Home, A Work in Progress. The images are by John Willis. The text by Brent Sturlaugson relates a powerful story of the ways … 0

Letter: Return the cart

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Flower arrangements, statuary, animals, cars and now a garden cart that was an anniversary gift from my deceased husband was stolen from my property on Tuesday, March 10! Really! The cart, not only has sentimental value, but for many years it has been a godsend for garden and … 0

Susan Sakmar, LNG expert, reports: “As of Aug. 28, 2014, the Department of Energy has approved a total of 40.96BCF/d for LNG exports. This is over half of U.S. natural gas production of approximately 70 Bcf/d. The 40.96 approved exports include many FTA only applications, which must be … 3

Letter: Donor match

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

On behalf of the Be The Match, I want to thank The Recorder and reporter Chris Curtis for poignantly documenting how one young woman provided a second chance at life for another. The story of local marrow donor Michaela Loynd (Feb. 26) is a testament to her personal … 0

Letter: Crack down on speeding

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Colrain Road has had trouble in the past with traffic. In The Recorder (Oct. 3) it was stated there were over 7,000 cars going down Colrain Road. Now, I’m sure it’s much more. They put the roundabout in. That helps traffic from Greenfield Community College get out, but … 0

Letter: ‘Consensus is not science’

Monday, March 16, 2015

I had a nice laugh when I read Mr. Grans’ article. An old saying came to mind, “consider the source,” and lo and behold, Mr. Gran was a climate science instructor at a local college. We know he has already drunk the “global warming” Kool-Aid. So right on … 1

Letter: Targeting the goat

Monday, March 16, 2015

It seems to me that it should be obvious to the countries that make up the E.U., that the U.S. is using them like a goat staked out to draw Russia into a conflict. They are like a goat being left to their possible demise. They would do … 0

Letter: Our evolving district

Sunday, March 15, 2015

As things stand at the moment, the Gill-Montague Regional School District anticipates making a net reduction of 15 staff positions for next school year. This will mean the loss of some talented and dedicated professionals who are admired by students and cherished by colleagues. In this important respect, … 0

Letter: Caught my eye

Sunday, March 15, 2015

On a recent Friday, I contacted the paper about our Fire District taking delivery of a new truck. Plans were made to meet with a reporter at the fire station at 10 a.m. for photos, etc. At the last minute, Chief Yazwinski moved the truck to a fire … 0

Letter: An eye on Yankee

Sunday, March 15, 2015

The NRC approved Entergy’s request to eliminate funding for the Vermont Yankee evacuation planning zone, effective April 2016. Has the NRC forgotten the Fukushima disaster, when reactors the same age, make and model as Yankee began melting down? For 80,000 people, this past March 11 marks four years … 1
