Dog incident

I do feel saddened by the injuries the 6-year-old sustained from a dog. This is a mixed breed dog and by the family’s report, a docile one. The dog was obviously greatly startled by the fall of the child onto it. I do believe that any dog would have responded this way. The owners are obviously devastated. A wireless fence is a safe investment not euthanasia!


I was at my doctor’s office today at the medical center at Merrimack Valley Hospital. I kept looking at helipad. I think that if a helicopter hit the fencing at Kennedy Circle, then it would have hit the telephone and electric wires. That helipad has been there for almost 30 years and had no problems. I’m sure there are no problems now either. If you’re not happy with the noise, move!

Taxing fresh air

Imagine all the money you’ve spent in your lifetime on car inspections and taxes. Now imagine all of that money being in your pocket and the roads being well kept. I’m here to tell you, other states have done just that. This government is counting on you not knowing better, so out of fear, you surrender your wallet every time. Now it’s come again — they want to tamper with Winnekenni Park, a park I live near to and one our family has explored for years. Someone referred to this new plan as “the Sullivan-Macek-Fiorentini Fresh Air Tax.” I think it’s appropriate. Call it what it is, a tax for breathing, and blame those at the root of the problem. Nature doesn’t need an elaborate plan and a budget; it’s fine just the way it is. True nature lovers know this. It’s the developers that don’t have a clue. This god-like appetite they have for putting a fee on everything a person touches or does in unhealthy and unnatural.
