We have a beautiful pool at Mainland Regional High School for the use of the students and the community with a parking lot at the pool’s door. However, in the past few weeks the parking lot has been closed and a new lot gate has been installed.

Not amused by principal tricks

To the editor:

Why do newspapers continue to cover stupid principal tricks?  Is it because you think the “tricks” such as sliming the principal or duct taping a principal to the wall are newsworthy because they are “fun”? Or is it because the taxpayers and parents need to learn what the children are being taught as “rewarding behavior”?

To the editor:

When I hear these mostly lawyerly types make fun of climate change, the first thing that comes to mind is how they have missed the big picture, probably because it doesn't bode well for their high-maintenance lifestyles.

If you can't see how man has had dramatically negative impact on the planet in the short geological history since the Industrial Revolution, you really have your head in the sand.

Letter: Tea party column ignored important facts

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Thursday, February 20, 2014 12:00 am

To the editor:

Was the guest column “‘1 percent’ is no friend of the tea party” in the Feb. 13 edition of The Current a liberal media stunt to lampoon the tea party? 

While calling critics of those who oppose the tea party “cherry pickers,” Seth Grossman forgets that the faces of the tea party – Fox News, Sarah Palin, and conservative “authors” – basically cherry pick for profit.

Letter: Two sets of rules in Northfield

Letter: Two sets of rules in Northfield Letter: Two sets of rules in Northfield To the editor:

The City of Northfield saga continues. What lies ahead? Our mayor was elected assemblyman and the Democrats need to replace him, but in the meantime we have a Republican sitting in the mayor's seat.

What a slap in the face to Democratic Councilman Frank Perri, who was our mayor for 12 years. And it’s not the first time Councilman Perri has been ignored, such as when the Republican-controlled council gave away our rescue squad, even though the residents asked them not to.

Concerned about the safety of children on Zion Road

To the editor:
I am writing this letter because I am greatly concerned about the safety of children walking, biking, and skateboarding on Zion Road in Northfield on their way to the Northfield Community School each weekday morning and afternoon.

There is not a day that goes by that there are not speeding cars driving down the road, very close to the children who are on their way to school. The posted speed limit on Zion Road is 35 mph; however, it is extremely rare to see a vehicle traveling even close to that speed.
