Whatever Happened to "We the People"


To the Editor,

What began as my opposition to a  bill passed by the House of Representatives that would prevent states from requiring package labels to indicate the presence of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, evolved into an open letter to the governing bodies of our nation regarding so very many issues plaguing society...

What a disgrace. What an abuse of power, yet again, by those elected by the people for the people.

WE THE PEOPLE. We the people. Whatever happened to that?

Our politicians need to reflect on the honest motives behind their choices before implementing their will on us, on our children.  Where exists honor in a life not guided by honesty, fairness, and kindness to all? We want honorable legislators, honorable government.

We the people want clean drinking water across our nation. We the people want to know what is in our food and where it comes from. We the people want to protect our children. We the people want to save the animals. We the people want to heal our planet. We the people want government to promote the general welfare. We the people want our elected officials to remember we elected you to protect our rights and freedoms.

I beg you, stand beside us, hold the image of our nation's children at the front of your mind and in the light of your conscience when you make decisions on behalf of we the people. You, and those like you, will become a beacon of hope and justice for we the people.

Longtime Chatham Resident Passes the Torch to Current Residents

July 13, 2018

To the Editor,

I moved to Chatham from Ohio in 1961 and left just over a year or so ago. My daughters went through the school system and one of them still lives there with her son.

Clearly, we found the Library and local educational opportunities to our liking. 

When it came to giving back to the community, I chose to support the Library and served as a Board member for 15 ...
