Letter: Clinging to dollar bill

Thursday, April 17, 2014

In his recent piece, “Shortchanging dollar coin” on April 7, editor Tim Blagg is exactly right about America’s clinging to the one dollar bill — we’re far behind the rest of the world, and will continue to lose out on billions in savings unless we transition from the dollar bill to the dollar coin. We stand arm in arm with Botswana and Argentina with having the lowest value paper currency. … 0

Letter: TV guide

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Domestic violence, child abuse, drug use and other violence, I believe, is due to the TV programs that everybody, children as well as adults, watches. Most of these programs on most of the TV channels promote violence and immoral actions. There are some channels that air good moral and family-oriented programs which are not listed on any TV guides. For instance, the ABC … 0

Letter: No to ‘fracking’

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

“For evil to happen all that is necessary is for good men (and women) to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke. It is time for anyone who is opposed to hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to ACT. Stop the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. and Kinder Morgan’s plans to construct a pipeline … 2

Letter: Ricketts the right choice

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

While I am not a resident of Precinct 5 in Greenfield, I understand the importance of every council seat. That is why I urge the residents of Precinct 5 to vote for Penny Ricketts in the April 15 preliminary election. Over the years, Penny has made a name … 0

Letter: Hurting farmers

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

The problems of these proposed (manure) regulations are that our state government assumes that us farmers are making static decisions when managing our farms. As the article said, if an alfalfa crop gets winter killed, we have to till it up and apply manure to provide nutrients for … 0

Letter: Money taking over

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Amend the Constitution to declare money is not equal to speech. This government is being taken over by money. Corporations are KING and king is the right term and the unfunny jesters, five out of nine on the supremely ridiculous court (and at the same time they are … 0

Letter: Seeking your votes

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

It’s not often that a candidate can legally say “vote for me twice.” But that’s what I’m asking Precinct 5 voters to do: vote for me April 15 and again in June. I am running two campaigns for the Town Council because I think I can make a … 0

Letter: She’s about community

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

I applaud Ms. Penny Ricketts and her willingness to serve once again. While some current Town Council members would have us believe that few volunteer to serve our community due to a lack of remuneration, I believe Ms. Penny would be willing to serve even if she needed … 0

Letter: I call it extortion

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

I am writing today in response to the article Economic Fallout, on Friday, April 4. As someone who will still be employed by Entergy after December, I find it appalling that the local “do-gooders” want to extort even more money from Entergy, after already receiving over a half … 0

Letter: Share the road

Monday, April 7, 2014

What happens when one exits the church, the house or his/her apartment, gets in a vehicle and drives away? Of course, we know we are not supposed to kill others. But, there is some subtlety, about our responsibility to others and to our country, town/city, family, ourselves, in … 0

Letter: Preferential treatment

Monday, April 7, 2014

Now that the hoopla over The Recorder article concerning Mr. Norman’s rewrite of the Conservation Commission Ordinance has died down, I’d like to toss in my two cents. I don’t understand the letters chastising the coverage. Frankly, I am glad The Recorder reported it; otherwise, I would not … 0

Letter: All about families

Monday, April 7, 2014

One of the YMCA in Greenfield’s focus areas is fostering healthy living for all ages. In our preschool, childcare programs, youth sports, summer camps and fitness classes, our members learn that nutrition and regular exercise are the keys to wellness. Our Y provides programs and facilities for children, … 0
