Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018: Opposing GMOs Isn't Immoral, Wind Storm Response Exemplary, Trump Correct about Haiti


Wind storm response exemplary

We at Holland Power Services are always pleased to work alongside our colleagues at Central Maine Power, as we did after the late October windstorm, because we know the restoration will be managed efficiently and with utmost regard for safety. I have been struck by some stories by those second-guessing CMP's performance in the storm restoration, and I would like to offer a different perspective.

Holland Power Services has worked with utilities throughout the eastern seaboard, including Florida and the Bahamas. Our company has assisted in recoveries from hurricanes, snow storms, ice storms and tornadoes. We have worked alongside CMP and numerous other utilities, and I consider CMP among the best partners in an emergency. This is not only my opinion, but is an opinion shared throughout the industry.

The company's capacity for effective emergency response was certainly evident in the late October windstorm. The conditions our crews encountered in Maine were challenging; rarely have we had to deal with the vast number of large fallen trees blocking roads and damaging power lines. Based on the damage that was present, the recovery from this storm was exemplary.

We consider CMP one of the best partners to have when things are at their worst, which is why we never hesitate to step in when called to assist in Maine.

Living on the road and working in tough conditions is never easy. The kindness and gratitude offered to our crews meant a lot and for that Holland Power Services is truly grateful.

Opposing GMOs isn't immoral

It is not possible to cover all aspects of the half-truths in the Jan. 1 OpEd by Mitch Daniels, a former Indiana governor and president of Purdue. But his calling those who are against the widespread use of GMO crops "immoral" I find morally deplorable.

I recommend the author read a copy of the book " Altered Genes, Twisted Truth" by Stephen M. Druker. This book will clearly show where most all of the immoral activity is located. The 500-page book gives ample references for all issues raised. Yes, the book is disturbing, but also very informative to those working for a better world who are unencumbered by economic interests.

On the other side, look to an uplifting and informative book on saving the world's food supplies and our soil resources. I recommend " Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life" by David R. Montgomery.

The first book is a disturbing but clarifying source of information for those of us who are labeled deplorable or immoral by Daniels. The second book clearly describes innovative farming methods that rebuild our soil resources, improve our crop health and natural resistance to diseases. As a secondary effect, these methods have a major influence on storing huge quantities of carbon dioxide in our soils for free.

Trump correct about Haiti

Is President Donald Trump rude, crude? In my opinion, yes. But he is also outspokenly honest. He says things that many of us don't want to hear. …
