    Government employees should have to buy U.S.

    I saw a show on TV recently that said U.S. representatives are allowed (and do) lease cars at taxpayers expense.

    Jesus wouldn’t involve himself in affairs of state

    A recent writer to the Morning Sentinel, serving in the Legislature in Augusta at the behest of God, points out that the Constitution does not mention the need to separate church and state. But it cannot therefore be assumed that the opposite is intended, that church and state should unite. The writer worries about being […]

    Parade needed more bands, scouts, spirit

    Where was the parade? Two bands and 50 cars — a parade? Granted, a few veterans participated. Bless them, that’s what a parade is all about. But where were the high school bands — Messalonskee, Lawrence, Winslow and Waterville? Plus an hour and a half wait. Shame. Let’s get the bands, more Boy Scouts, Girl […]

    Many students in SAD 13 Industrial Arts Program

    I’m upset that, once again, the MSAD 13 School Board in Bingham is looking to cut out the industrial arts program. For the past five years, MSAD 13 School Board members look at the number of prospective students and then they make recommendations as to what programs ought to be cut. Each year, the actual […]

    Money in consumers’ pockets best for business

    I read Richard LaPorte’s letter to the editor in the Kennebec Journal this morning (July 13) with some interest. Most businesses have plenty of money these days and interest rates are at a historic low should they need more. At the same time, unemployment is at a historic high so plenty of willing workers are […]

    We must find a way to stop fish depletion

    Fish is a vital protein-rich food. The U.S. government recommends eating more fish, at least 8 ounces or more a week, which is more than twice the amount that the average American eats. This is a dilemma as commercial fishing, as practiced now, has depleted fish stocks throughout the world. Fish farming has somewhat filled […]

    What about ice arena owners’ responsibility?

    I regularly shovel snow from the roof of my house in the winter to prevent structural damage to my residence. Living in Maine, it is common sense to do this. Apparently, the owners of the Kennebec Ice Arena either were unwilling to remove the snow from their roof or did not know about the dangers […]

    Motorcyclist seen texting; what’s next?

    I couldn’t believe my eyes today. I was leaving Togus, sitting at the light, and I saw a man on his motorcycle texting while riding by. Really? We have issues with people driving and texting, and now motorcyclists, too. Then down the road at the rotary, a woman was talking on her phone while driving […]

    God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve

    First, we must understand what God has said. In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. Plain enough? Then after creation, God spoke and said, “Let us make man in our image. God formed man from the dust of the ground and formed woman (Eve) and brought her to Adam.” People who want […]
