Talkback

In this day and age, and especially when seniors are usually the most vocal about taxes, it seems irresponsible to build a building with town money that is restricted to only one segment of the population while others go without. This is a bunch of hubbub about nothing. A senior center is a building with rooms, and ramps....pretty much the same thing a youth center would include. Youth are at school during the day, seniors are not - there are lots of ways to stagger the uses. Programming can be creative to make the best and most harmonious use of one community center. Seniors are after all still part of the "community." ...(full comment)

Thank you, nobiomass. I don't have the scientific facts at my fingertips, but I knew we were going to go astray when he started with "I firmly believe..." Beliefs don't count. Facts do. ...(full comment)

Letter: I offer a challenge

My goodness Mr Bates! All you have to do is a Google search to prove you wrong. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-08-31/solar-wind-power-costs-drop-as-fossil-fuels-increase-iea-says http://www.worldwatch.org/renewables-becoming-cost-competitive-fossil-fuels-us I have to admit, I do swallow scientific fact about the rate in which the planet is warming, hook line and sinker. Even if you don't understand data, the photos are compelling. http://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/ Mr Bates, are you suggesting that the pollution of BILLIONS of people have no effect on the earth and its atmosphere? ...(full comment)

Letter: I offer a challenge

We already do pay for it, not only at the pump but through unneeded tax subsidies to the oil/gas industry (and through all the environmental cleanup we the taxpayers have to do after they are done extracting). Redirect those subsidies to renewables, and they become much more affordable a la oil and gas. ...(full comment)

Letter: Raise price on fossil fuel

You are dreaming, how is a poor person who just gets by going to afford the increase in fuel costs (to heat and drive)? Are you going to pay for it? I think not. If you believe that the oil should not be taken out of the ground, then why should any substance be taken out of the ground? There is contamination from every substance taken out of the ground. ...(full comment)

Letter: Raise price on fossil fuel

What a lovely story. I decided to make several copies for my friends and relatives. When I searched for the article online, I noticed that the Huffington Post and ABC News had both picked up the story. So thanks to the Greenfield Recorder, many in other parts of the country and the world got to share this wonderful story. ...(full comment)

In fact McCarthy was vindicated by the release of the Venona decrypts. Probably something you and most liberals want to gloss over. Or something you had no interest in. Truth. Even in this day when liberals cannot win with facts, they call you names (racist, homophobic, etc). Of course I am giving you stuff from non-political government employees. ...(full comment)

Brown/My Turn: Loosen fear’s grip

Haha, very funny. But though the schools certainly do teach about climate in general, they do not necessarily address climate CHANGE. Yes, there are historic hot and cold cycles in the climate. That doesn't mean there is no man-made climate change. Rather than investigating what students are taught -- not necessarily the absolute truth! -- why not investigate what scientists say about climate change. It's not hard to find. They are close to unanimous. ...(full comment)

Letter: Climate change happens with or without humans

Once again ... the column is "My Turn" ... Dan Brown has had more than his turn. Stop printing his nonsense. He has moved, let him write to his new local paper. His one sided approach is archaic and stale, and we're sick of it. "Fear" mongering is used by all politicians, and all media. It's what sells. You could easily replace the titles in the above volcano flows with 'global warming', 'police brutality', 'devastation of natural gas', 'stop the pipeline', 'white privilege', and all number of progressive agendas that they force on the public. The progressive left utilizes fear and compartmentalization far more than the right - witness the 'occupy' movements, the 'BlackLivesMatter" movement, and any number of separatist systems foisted on the public by the left which serve only to separate and divide people. The Right does not hold a monopoly on fear mongering; the left utilizes fear far more vocally, far more disruptively, and far more violently. ...(full comment)

Brown/My Turn: Loosen fear’s grip

FERC is made up of 5 big energy insider type people who govern themselves like The Wizard of Oz. They are paid via fees and filings of big oil, gas, coal and petroleum. Not really an effective system. Only our nation's President can take FERC to the wood shed, and he and those before him have perpetuated this BS because it would require a massive restructure of Executive Branch. Also, requires admitting massive wrongdoing for ages. Fallout would be too much, so they let it fester and chose to wreck our nation instead via mass industrialization and overt pollution of our nation's land and her tax paying, hard working people. Awful truth. ...(full comment)
