You may have heard about the flight of the bumblebee, but what about the plight of the bumblebee? You can go green and save the bees by choosing pesticides more carefully. The most widely used pesticide uses neonicotinoids.

Letter: Ending quantitative easing is a bad idea

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

To the editor: 

Stock prices plunge as Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, hints at phasing out quantitative easing, the process of buying bonds to the tune of $85 billion per month, thus adding purchasing power to our still-struggling economy.

Investors know very well what works.  Obviously, those on the political right demanding that the Fed stop in effect printing so much money either are economically obtuse or would like nothing better than to see our economy tank and President Obama’s presidency with it, not to mention a landslide victory for Republicans in the next congressional election.

Don’t judge a sunscreen by its cover. Not all sunscreens are created equal. Most block the sun’s UVB rays which cause sunburn. Only a few block UVA rays which can cause cancer.

Well, it’s three strikes and you are out for Jeri-Lynn Gatto, principal at AbsegamiHigh School.

For the past two years you have made poor judgment calls about graduation and have ruined the day for family, friends and of course the graduates. Maybe running Absegami should be left to someone more qualified.

Time for an Election Day revolution in America

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Joseph J. Picardi Monday, June 24, 2013 04:39 pm

To the editor:

In a few short weeks America will celebrate Independence Day.  Many of us will attend parades and barbecues to celebrate our independence from Great Britain – freedom that was paid for by the blood and sacrifice of our brave patriots more than two centuries ago.

It would be difficult to find any American that doesn’t believe our country deserved to govern itself free of British rule.  The Stamp Act, Tea Act, and the phrase “taxation without representation” are ingrained in us as some of the reasons our forefathers chose to revolt against what they felt was a tyrannical government that didn’t have the support of many of the American colonists.

To the editor:

As you are aware, the last two graduation ceremonies of Absegami High School were disrupted by bad weather.

I wish that the school would be able to come up with a solution for weather conditions out of their control. There should be a contingency plan to either have a rain date for the ceremony, change the start time of the ceremony, or move it indoors.

Consider tariffs to neutralize inexpensive foreign labor advantage

Competing in a global economy can be hazardous, in the long term, to our nation’s health, especially on the consumer side of the economic equation. White and blue collar workers in many foreign lands, especially in developing nations, accept way less compensation than workers in the USA.
