Growing up in Germany with

Growing up in Germany with the school system there I find that the one size fits all here is not working. In Germany you have different schools for different learning abilities. Kids who are very smart get taught by a higher more challenging curriculum than kids with learning disabilities. Those kids go to schools with a great teacher/student ratio so every individual gets the attention they need and can learn at their speed. Kids who are fast learners are in larger classes with higher demands.
I find that pushing all kids through the same setting is the problem here. The smart ones get bored by waiting for the weaker ones to catch up. Why is it that our graduates not rank on top when compared to other countries?

I read Peters letter as

I read Peters letter as satire. The way kids get overly protected in these days. Boy, did I grow up dangerous...but had lots of fun and were allowed to be kids. My brother always says "what doesn't kill you makes you harder".

You interpret the "picture"

You interpret the "picture" wrong. There is no Star of David. The star you are seeing is part of the symbol of the former Soviet Union ... The O stands for Obama and our contries colors. It symbolises the direction to communism Obama is going. the jews have nothing to do with it.

Guess what? I haven't had any

Guess what? I haven't had any problems with my well water and as I stated before, it's from the same aquifer than Poland Spring. I drink my water right out of the tap from the well - no filters. So I would not hesitate to buy (don't have to) the bottles in my local Hannaford.

yes it does kill fish

Actually it was Auburn tap water. Don't know if this is much different from Lewiston. We had to replace my daughters goldfish and use bottled water instead. Now that I live in Poland, I put just plain unfiltered well water in my aquarium and it’s just fine.
Grady, do you want to put a tax on my well also and control it, since it's from the same aquifer as Poland Spring? Enjoy your tap water - maybe you had too much of it.

It's about time that section

It's about time that section gets an overhaul. I travel every day back and forth between Auburn and Lewiston on the turnpike and the on/off ramps and the left turn lane coming south on 202 to enter the ramps is just plain awefull. Thank you for not wasting money on another exit but fixing up the existing ones. Someone finally turned their brains on.

Nope, maybe I should have

Nope, maybe I should have said I blame both for not being able to avoid this accident. The bike rider for not being able to stop and the car driver for pulling out. If just one would have paid a little more attention this could have been avoided.
