Everyone wants more buses

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)

Richardson/My Turn: Unpersuasive on pipeline

Early on Alan Fore stated that by satellite, this region "looks like North Korea", and residents have certainly felt as if this is a military occupation. Before this "plan" was even officially announced, or even mentioned to local governments, helicopters (from Georgia) swarmed our area: even nights and weekends, equipped with LIDAR: one way of violating property owners rights. The trucks with out of state plates: Texas, Nevada, Arkasas, continue to swarm the area. Local jobs? only for suckers who are being used as window dressing. Yes, Mr. Fore sees us as North Korea: and needs dozens of police "guards" to "protect" him from his own motives and intentions. He knows that what he is doing is an atrocity. But in his former career, with big tobacco, killing certain segments of the population was laughed about as "population control". And this is the intention of this pipeline as much as the heist of U.S. gas by a .01% ENRON legacy company. ...(full comment)

FBI eyes Greenfield school food dept.

I am a National Grid customer currently on the waiting list for the Net Metering Cap to be lifted. In my opinion, if we don't get these caps lifted now, many people on the waiting list will abandon their projects. This will happen because the 30% Federal tax credit is set to expire at the end of 2016. Without that incentive, the solar systems payback just doesn't work. It is simple math! In addition to that, many area jobs in the solar installation business will be lost. ...(full comment)

Lawmakers grapple with details of solar law

Melissa Click as a communication prof should know the law. She should lose her job. There is no excuse for her actions of intimidation. The groups were on public land and had no right to block access to anyone. As for the press, the problem is bias and the protection of the views they hold. ...(full comment)

Editorial: Protest puts focus on rights, media

You can go on believing that you are Rambo, but, I am amazed people still recycle this tired old argument. There is no data to prove your belief. Evidence will show that it is more likely that you will shoot yourself with your own gun or that someone else will take it and shoot you with it. ...(full comment)

Letter: Armed citizenry

I'm with Gimli. Enough is enough. This may be the last hurrah for Democracy when a nation's "leaders" start voting for corporate "investor state trubunals" that trump U.S. law, and can over ride public health, environmental laws if a corporation is hindered in its "profits": that is what TPP seeks to do. NO. ...(full comment)
