Letter: Pipeline protest

Monday, July 27, 2015

I frequently hold a sign at the proposed pipeline compressor station site on Gulf Road in Northfield, and others are joining me. Currently, most of our protests against Kinder Morgan’s plans are appropriately focused on legal processes. Should our representatives and courts fail us, it is imperative that we continue to congeal and activate our collective power in incremental and diverse forms of protest to effectively prevent the construction of … 0

Letter: Rowe’s support

Monday, July 27, 2015

On behalf of Massachusetts Fair Share, I would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to the Town of Rowe Board of Selectmen. Earlier this month, the board unanimously approved a resolution affirming their support for increasing Massachusetts investment in early education. We know early learning is critical to children’s success, but, since 2001, state funding has not been flagging, resulting in a reduction … 0

Letter: Olympic boondoggle

Monday, July 27, 2015

I am upset with the double talk coming from Beacon Hill. Our tax dollars should not go to fund the Olympics! I don’t agree to paying a MULTI-BILLION dollar bailout for the Olympics! Unfortunately, the Legislature put a phony gimmick within the state budget to try to fool taxpayers. It claims that our tax dollars are protected from funding a “Bailout” for cost … 0

Letter: A cleaner future

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

America’s youth, along with the rest of America, need and deserve a brighter future and a cleaner environment. The money spent by greedy corporate elites on dirty fracking; pipeline building; habitat destruction; chemical waste; export; police/security costs; emergency; cleanup of air, water and greenhouse pollution; land settlement costs; … 1

Letter: River use hazards

Monday, July 6, 2015

I’ve read the article regarding the Deerfield River and Stillwater Bridge. Tubing on the Deerfield seems a natural pastime for the area. But be careful, when the area that is being used to pick up or drop off customers is not controlled by someone or thing, it creates … 0

Letter: Wrong location

Monday, July 6, 2015

On July 16, the Planning Board is meeting to allow by special permit the Behavioral Health Network of Springfield to operate a 62-bed detox and rehab facility at the former Lunt property. Is this the best fit for the neighborhood; one that currently is home to the town’s … 0

Letter: War on smokers

Monday, July 6, 2015

How stupid are politicians? All these mentally deranged people we’re reading about are allowed to drive cars, their mentally retarded parents buying guns for their brain-dead offspring and what do our fearless leaders do? They spend billions of dollars preaching, “No smoking any place where another man, woman, … 0

Letter: Priorities

Friday, July 3, 2015

This will be short and sweet: The last couple of days, I have been reading how there is an interest in creating a cultural district in Greenfield. I can see how this would be very beneficial to the town. We all need culture. However, I was wondering if … 0

Letter: Wrong tone

Friday, July 3, 2015

While I applaud efforts to support Sy’s Fund, I am distressed that the event planners chose to host a “sizzlers pageant.” No, it is NOT true that anything fun is good, as one spokesperson is quoted. We all may know people who identify as trans- — in our … 0

Letter: Drawing strength from others

Friday, July 3, 2015

An open letter to those impacted by the addiction crisis: I watched a drug deal today. It happened at 4 p.m., five feet in front of my car. As the participants walked in opposite directions I didn’t know who to chase. I wanted to shake their shoulders. I … 0

Letter: Liberals and FOX News

Friday, July 3, 2015

Why do liberals hate FOX News? It is probably because they do not like hearing both sides of the story. They only like to hear views that satisfies what has been mushed in their heads by the liberal media. All of the FOX News talk panels have the … 0

Letter: Plastic and other bags

Friday, July 3, 2015

The people of Greenfield want to go green and ban plastic bags. How many trees will die so that they can have paper bags? The fact is reusable bags can be a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria. The people should educate themselves to the fact that the plastic … 0

Letter: I take offense

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

I read your editorial page all the time and the cartoons don’t make any sense and they are as liberal and anti-Republican as you can get. The one you showed June 22 was very offensive to me because I’m a Republican. What does air bags got to do … 0
