Yea, marijuana leads to hard core drug use...and, if you keep doing that, you'll go blind by the time you're 18. Both fairy tales. Regulate it and tax it like alcohol, we could use the money.
There are also a small group of people that shouldn't be driving, using lawnmowers, chainsaws, nail guns, and so on that are law abiding citizens and have no intention of harming themselves or others, yet they do. Maybe we should talk about that too. You can't teach common sense, and certainly, alcohol and/or drugs don't mix well with most activities that require being attentive for safety reasons, firearms included.
Sheesh! If the association will not sanction help in maintaining the cemetery, then they should have a maintenance plan of their own in place. If the cemetery were adequately maintained in the first place, this would be a non-issue. It would appear that the students and their teachers did nothing to harm the grave markers and had sufficient knowledge so as not to cause any damage.
I have no problem with Mike Michaud's sexual orientation. I wasn't going to vote for him before his announcement, and I haven't changed my mind any because of it.
I owned a Staffordshire Terrier, A/K/A "pit bull", for 10 years, until cancer took him. During that time we had horses, cats, and raised turkeys. I never had a problem with his attacking these animals, or , as well, humans. Recognizing that he was physically capable of serious damage though, I was always sure to keep him out of potentially adverse situations. Actually, no different than with my horses. Your lack of knowledge of the breed and their traits is why you hate them. Any large dog has the potential of causing serious harm if not properly trained AND supervised. Blame the owner, not the dog. Blame the owner, not the gun.
Oops! "Norwegian" company. Bad geography.
The article says that ratepayers would be on the hook for $200 million invested in the project by the Swedish company. If indeed that is true, and we end up paying higher electric rates, which at this point know one knows for sure, then the greenest thing from this project will be the cash flowing out of ratepayer pockets.
Did the "bad guys with guns" stop shooting because they ran out of bullets , or because they were interrupted by "good guys with guns"?
Well said Bob. This also sends a clear message to local landlords that are already having a hard time making ends meet that the city of Lewiston doesn't really care about them. It's all about maintaining and growing our status as a mecca for those that are in search of a free ride. Supply and demand has nothing to do with their decisions. This type of housing is definitely NOT the way to revitalize the downtown.
