Protect Our Wetlands Now; Don’t Wait for the Public Hearing

March 15, 2017

Sometime this spring, possibly as early as April, the town board is expected to hold a public hearing on a new wetlands law. There can be no doubt that the proposed law, as currently written, weakens the regulations that are protecting our fragile and critically important wetlands. The proposed law:

• Dramatically increases the size of wetlands that would be protected, from 1,000 square ...

A Phishing Expedition

Why does nothing stick to President Trump? Ever since he came down that escalator at Trump Tower, nothing the Democrats, the media (which, according to WikiLeaks, are one and the same) or the establishment talking heads have thrown at him has stuck. He never lost his core support to the point where he actually won the presidential election. None of it stuck.

There were items and remarks that ...

Understanding President Trump

We have always taken pains to judge our political leaders through a lens that is part partisan affiliation and part deep-seated values.

These values include consistency and truth-telling. We generally don’t tolerate being deceived or lied to, even if the deceiver shares our political stripes. “Flip-flopping” is anathema in our political world. Consequently, when a politician ...

Attention All Catalog Shoppers

At first I looked forward to the occasional Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma catalogs. Not that I was buying, because we were young and house poor. But like a man with a girly magazine, I liked to look ...

How Important Are SAT/ACT Exams?

Dear Dr. Linda,

My wife is having our son take the SAT and the ACT over and over again. Each time it costs money and even more money for the tutor. I’m an attorney and never took this many exams in my life. Our son is miserable, my wife is determined and I’m angry. I guess you have a clear picture of our home environment at this time. It’s not pretty. Any ...

‘We the People…’

March 22, 2017

I worked with a man in a literacy program who is now an American citizen. When he was studying for the exam, he told me “I read the words, ‘We the People…We the People,’ and I want to be part of that.” He repeated the phrase slowly, with such reverence and respect that I choked up. He gave me the perspective of someone who had his nose pressed up against the glass, ...
