    Cleanup thanks On behalf of the St. George Conservation Commission I would like to thank the more than 50 citizens who picked up the winter’s accumulation of trash along our major, and some not so major, roads Saturday, May 3. Fortified by the delicious pancake breakfast supplied by the St. George Days Committee and equipped with trash bags, buckets, grabbers and rakes they scoured the ditched for that last piece …

    Concise What a fabulous column by David Grima in this week’s [May 1] Herald, The Foundation of Social Justice. This is NOT a Christian nation, and he very adequately makes that point with his historical and factual references. Thanks for such a clear concise explanation on why we don’t base our existence and well-being on religion but on the building blocks of separation of Church and State. Jo Ann Simon Camden Cr…

    Fails to mention Daniel Dunkle’s summary of the latest report released by the NTSB on the accident in Owls Head, Nov. 16, 2012, fails to recognize that there were four victims that night. The driver of the ground vehicle struck by the plane would also have been a fatality had the impact occurred moments later.The fact that he survived makes him no less of a victim, yet Mr. Dunkle’s reporting insinuates otherwise. …

    Stop war on poor While I have been pleased to read Mr. Brower’s opinions on some recent political developments, his article “More Politics and the Ideology of Change” brings us back to an earlier debate about how we characterize the poor and those on food assistance. Missing from the article’s supposed “common sense” about potentially dishonorable EBT transactions were facts. As the BDN reported about the …

    Hardy honor A remarkable woman, Betty Hardy, died Monday, April 7, at her home in the South End, overlooking Rockland Harbor. She died with little notice in the larger community, in the company of a few friends and her son, John. For several weeks leading to her death, she had the daily company of her dearest friend, Martha Clarke, who told me this story. Several weeks ago, Martha went with Betty to her final …

    Why doesn’t Rockland have a city planner? Ever wonder why streets get dug up multiple times? Ever wonder why we as taxpayers pay multiple times to dig up utilities? Ever wonder why new sidewalks crack? Ever wonder why some neighborhoods have a sewer smell? Ever wonder why we tried speed bumps that weren’t done right but cost a lot? Ever wonder why we have so many one-way streets? Ever wonder why some curbs are …

    Ludicrous Regarding the article, “Politician cries foul” in the March 6 Courier-Gazette, the statement made by Wes Richardson that he is “concerned” about his personal safety from Jeff Evangelos, and Wes calling the police based on a third-party gossip comment, is so ludicrous. It is an additional slur of dirty politics from Mr. Richardson. I vote in another district, however, I have known Jeff Evangelos for many …

    Justice not served There is no justice for Dylan Gold or St. George after the DA’s decision not to prosecute. They have the black box to the Infiniti which details every precise moment of the vehicle’s acceleration, deceleration and speed. It is obvious that Ms. Torgerson accelerated prior to striking Mr. Coggeshall because the throttle pedal was 100 percent 4 seconds before the airbag deployed. She struck a …
