Letter: Garden miracle

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Years ago, I tried to plant cucumbers. Didn’t do anything. Got disgusted with myself. Went out into the garden and looked around. Stringbeans did pretty good; squash grew fine; carrots popped up from the ground. Had tried to work the garden like my Dad told me. Even grew some beet greens. Tomatoes were everywhere. Even the wife was pleased with them, but no … 0

Letter: Clintons make me sick

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Darlene Clark, you say you’re an Independent, but I’m not buying it. Georgie Swinerton gives plenty of good reasons why Bill and Hillary should never return to the White House, yet you are certain she is jealous of the Clintons. That’s nonsense, ma’am. You say, “Whenever a Democrat … 0

Letter: Class trips

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

OH DEAR, OH DEAR. Parents of some of the children from Pioneer who have been bad can’t stand to have their children punished for being bad. Well, maybe if you had spent a little more time teaching them how to be good, you wouldn’t have this problem now. … 0

Letter: Anti-labor? Not at all

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Letter: Bridge ‘darned scary’

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

I’m not surprised that a large hole was found in the General Pierce Bridge. What I am surprised about is that it is still in one piece at all. That bridge is so darned scary to go across, even on foot or bike. I would rather drive the … 0

Letter: Use the bus Thursday

Monday, June 15, 2015

We have a chicken or the egg problem: We can have better bus service in our area if we have more riders to show the need. We must show we have a real need for better bus service before we can be awarded the additional funds to increase … 1

Letter: Strengthening solar

Sunday, June 14, 2015

In your recent editorial titled “Find a balance for ‘net metering,’” several costs of solar are discussed. Although a comprehensive long-term reform is necessary to improve the state of solar in Massachusetts, the benefits solar provides to all ratepayers, both participating and nonparticipating, were not mentioned. First and … 0
