Friday, Aug. 15, 2014: Riverview Crisis, Political Fliers, Climate Change Action


Shame, shame

I have recieved several political fliers from candidates, Karl Ward among them, that contain no information as to what party they represent. Could it be that they are ashamed of their party?

Cutler for governor

Wake up, fellow citizens. Before us is the real deal: Eliot Cutler for governor. Cutler, an independent, is a statesman with common sense, wit and intelligence.

Let's get behind this candidate. Register, and vote Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Linda Best

Again, LePage

I was not going to vote for Gov. Paul LePage, but as the BDN keeps railing against him I will vote for him again. Has the BDN ever said anything positive about him?

Guide thanks

Having been an Aroostook County native for all my 51 years, I appreciate the outdoors. Two weeks ago, my co-worker and I thought we'd meet the challenge of kayaking parts of the Penobscot below Ripogenus Dam.

Although I have kayaked many times before, I was vastly unprepared for the 2,800-plus cubic feet per second water and the class III and IV rapids.

I soon capsized and traveled a seemingly endless 10 minutes through three sets of rapids before being rescued by the world's greatest whitewater guides. I did not get their names, but I need to say, "Thank you very, very much." My kayak may still be underwater somewhere, but I am glad I lived to tell the tale.

Moderate face

Humane Society of the United States CEO Wayne Pacelle tries to explain away his past statement in favor of banning hunting, but Mainers should understand that he is just engaging in election-year politics in hopes that he will get their vote in an upcoming ballot measure to restrict bear hunting.

Not only has Pacelle advocated for a hunting ban, Pacelle has also stated that "I don't want to see another cat or dog born," and "I don't have a hands-on fondness for animals." He even wrote in an essay that "I don't love animals or think they are cute." These are not "fabricated" quotes, as he implies to the BDN but things he stated on the record.

Many have seen the HSUS TV ads with sad music and sadder pictures of dogs and cats, but only 1 percent of the money raised goes to local pet shelters. Instead, the money is funneled to PETA-like campaigns to shut down livestock farming, hunting and other uses of animals.

Like his employer, Pacelle tries to put on a moderate face to seem mainstream to Americans. Mainers should know there's a lot Pacelle and HSUS aren't telling them.

The Muddle East

The music teacher's Aug. 9 OpEd about the people of Gaza not deserving to be targets of an Israeli counter-offensive is pretty interesting, coming from a man who lived part of this summer on the West Bank.

We have several Christian and Jewish friends who live in various parts of Israel -- from Be'er Sheva, where the Israelis are running to their bomb shelters sometimes two or three times an hour, to just north of Tel Aviv, where they are doing the same, to Jerusalem itself. …
