Veterans’ Park project needs your support

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Bill Vain Thursday, July 25, 2013 12:00 am

To the editor:

I am asking residents in the area to help honor our veterans by helping making sure the Veterans’ Park, located in Northfield, is completed.  

While there has been a lot of hard work accomplished and substantial generosity shown in the first phases, the funds have run dry. Memorial Day and the Fourth of July have past and we have honored our veterans and soldiers. Sue Marino, a writer at The Current, wrote a beautiful article about Mr. Edwards, a World War II hero who passed away just before July 4.

Letter to the editor Letter to the editor To the editor:

I am writing as a taxpayer and as the parent of a former MRHS student.  After reading the article, “Random drug-test public hearing spurs administrative study,’ in the July 18, 2013 edition of the The Current, I would like to add my comments.

Taxpayers fund school sports and activities in order to help in the development of strong individuals who appreciate that life is basically a team sport.  These activities are meant to enhance education by developing character. It is no secret that these perks come with a high price tag in the Mainland High School community.
