I would like to learn if there are grief support groups which area organized religions or churches provide for members. I think it might be important that a member of an organized religion or church gain the perspective of their religious beliefs after the loss of a loved one. Thank you.
in its diversity. However, although a pastor and religious person are included, there is no mention of religion or God. I state this because of the reality I learned which exists in our society today as my wife passed through her final days with verbal opposition to her religion - to herself and me - from some persons within medical institutions. They were at least up front.
Police chief Carter for some reason did not get the message from Rumford voters that he was supposed to watch the budget. I do not understand that.
from the article. SAVE Rumford was right. More should have been reduced from the town's budget, but the town manager, Rumford Selectmen and finance committee said no. And, fought the budget reductions.
I do not have a problem with Rep. Michaud's being gay, but I am sorry to say that I think his coming out at this particular time is a political maneuver.
Gays have been coming out for quite a while in America. They have been accepted with little negativity. I therefore think that Michaud has had many chances to come out before this. He should have if he had wanted to be up front with Maine voters. He didn't come out.
Now that the Maine's voters have approved gay marriage, I cannot help but think that he is seeking that voting bloc as any politician would in his situation. That is a good political move.
for the very first Rumford police and fire departments budgets were specifically because we live in a very different world from that of my youth, Brad. I really think that is obvious and I do not understand the no votes by citizens on those accounts. (My other no votes on the budget were, yes, to reduce taxes.)
Why has this taken so long? This should have been done a while ago.
Why wasn't the unclassified accounts budget reduced before?
Will there be any management layoffs?
When will the assessment of the NewPage paper mill be completed so citizens will know what the mil rate will be?
What's the carry-over from last year in each department?
My father was manager of Woolworth's from 1942 to 1948. I have memories of the girls spoiling me with candy - on the sly, of course. I remember the long luncheon bar. I would have like to attend the luncheon.
How many protestors have been arrested with a court appearance for harassment and intimidation?
I think we should be careful when thinking of eroding our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech.
I think we might consider this a desire by Planned Parenthood, and any other group or institution, a clear repression of the freedom of speech, intended to silence those who disagree with the group or institution's philosophy. That is not acceptable in America.
Think before you leap...
