  • Mining in Montbrook

    To the editor:

    You may have seen the signs up “NO BLAST NO DUST” around our neighborhood in Montbrook and on East Levy Street. We are very much against the blasting mine Mr. Vanderwey would like to see placed here. Mr. Vanderwey hasn’t given up on his idea of a lime rock blasting mine in Williston. While he hasn’t gone before the Board of Commissioners (BOC) yet, he is still working on getting his paperwork in order to proceed in hopes of getting approval from the board.

  • Williston, you missed a treat

    When the press release came over last week, Iee^immediately put it on my calendar of things to do Saturday. “Moonlight and Music” it read. What could be better? Iee^thought.

    It was raining at my house, but just a brief drizzle so I was almost sure it wouldn’t be cancelled. ee^I was correct, although when I arrived at Williston Rehab, there was no one out enjoying the moonlight.

  • To the moon, Lou

    As a child of the 50s, I am part of the generation that saw humans fly into space and came to believe that if we applied ourselves to a problem it could be solved — especially if we applied ourselves to science, engineering and math.

    The news that the Soviets (remember them?) had put a man into space sent us into a frenzy.

    We watched President Kennedy’s challenge to reach the moon in 10 years.

    I remember the nuns hustling us out of class one day to look up at the sky for a “really tiny reflection of light.”

  • Powering America

    The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 is a bill in Congress designed to help move the United States off of its dependency on petroleum products by rewarding folks—corporations, companies and communities—who develop and sell alternatives while demanding that the industries using or selling oil-based products—such as utilities and auto-makers—adhere to a program reducing its use over the next four decades.

  • Preparing his whole life

    Jon Ebersole of Oak Park, Ill. feels as if he has been preparing for his current career and job his entire life.

    “I was raised a Mennonite, which is a very service-oriented faith,” said 48-year-old Ebersole in a telephone interview. “When in college, I was the ‘big brother’ for a kid in a tough situation involved with state services. I believe alcohol and emotional abuse existed in his family.”
