The Rev. also made it sound like this was lead by faculty: it was the students' idea, and quite impressive indeed. Students planned activities around greeting each student in the school, and listened to topics about inclusiveness, anti-bullying, and awarenesses of differences. Personally, it sounded like the experience most of us wish we had had in high school and the region is fortunate to have an excellent school, and an intellectually engaged student population of caring and accomplished students. The Rev. mostly talked about the mote in his own eye. ...(full comment)
This is why the route of the pipeline deliberately targets rural population centers, drinking water, and land conserved by citizens because of its value and beauty. Kinder Morgan is deliberately seeking to cause as much harm and destruction to this American State as they can while generating a false claim of public necessity. ...(full comment)
Wow, TGP says the study is flawed? There's the pot calling the kettle black. No, wait, there's the pot calling the tree black. Their own (and Kinder-Morgan's) studies are rife with inconsistencies, huge omissions and outright lies. I'm very grateful to the AG (and have told her so). It appears Healy's office is the only government agency involved in this fiasco that is actually looking out for the citizens' rights; meanwhile FERC, the DPU, and DCR are firmly installed in the oil & gas industry's pockets. ...(full comment)
Wonderful perspective, thanks for contributing it. I particularly like your paragraph on your own personal conclusion. As a frustrated atheist (that is, I am one but kind of wish I weren't), it appeals to me. ...(full comment)
The town owns the clock, who else would you have pay for it's running and upkeep? If you're that upset about it I'd suggest raising the issue of selling the clock at the next town meeting. ...(full comment)
Kinder Morgan wants an export pipeline to fill its tankers. They also want to bilk ratepayers, landowners and municipalities in order to build an export pipeline. There is no public necessity for this: just Kinder Morgan's greed and duplicity. ...(full comment)
I suggest that anyone who thinks we can let the Syrians in this country should host a Syrian refugee. Feed and house them. Help them assimilate into the American fabric AND be responsible for them. I don't want to say if they do a crime the host should do the time (meaning a terrorist act) but maybe they should.
This way they would not be a burden on the American taxpayer. ...(full comment)
If solar powered people do not pay their fair share of the grid cost than there should be no subsidies or tax credits for solar installation. The industry should be able to stand on its own. ...(full comment)
Oh hey, what the heck, let them all in. We have so many jobs available for them, it's a no brainer. Our police are so underutilized as it is. Our senior citizens are all set to a point where their services can be spread around. Oh, the hard working taxpayers won't mind either and relish the thought of paying more. Everything is fine, nothing of concern here. ...(full comment)
Thank you Maryanna for your well written editorial of your dinner experience at Applebee's. The empty dinner place at the table is for all the men and women who died for our country as well as the missing in action. A candle for guidance to their heavenly home along with a red rose to show them love and the lemon for all their bitterness they had witnessed.
Freedom isn't free it is paid by all those who gave their lives or live with disabilities today. ...(full comment)
