Wife, mother, grandmother, now retired from the work-force.
I also commend Rev. Taylor for his efforts. And after reading Mr Hansen's comments and looking up the various definitions of "ghetto" I'm happy to have learned that Rev. Taylor's use of the word was spot on.
I finally found one photo with a few lines written under it concerning "remembering 9-11" tucked away in the B section of the paper this morning (Lewiston-Auburn edition). I was so pleased to find out that the SunJournal didn't forget completely. Is this not supposed to be a special day of rememberance for Americans? Or is it spposed to be downplayed and I wasn't sent the memo?
Typically those 65 and older.......I understand that the Governor is trying to straighten out the State's money situation. Social Security recipients recieved a raise this year. Those in the low income bracket also recieved cutbacks in their other benefits and raises in their co-pays. Add that to the recent cutbacks in the things their insurances will cover, and they end up with quite a bit less money and benes that they had last year. So much for the cost of living raise. I understand that these things needed to be done because the State and the Country are in a mess moneywise.
There are a lot of mental health issues that social workers are not qualified to handle. Why not cut the length of time of the sessions across the board to save money. There must be something that could be done other than targeting the elderly.
I have backed the Governor in a lot of things, and I believe he wants to help the State get back on it's feet. But I find this particular proposal just WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!!
