In response to Mr Scott Evje’s letter pertaining to Livingston Fire and Rescue (LFR) and the city’s recent hiring of a fire chief, I would like to take this opportunity to provide Mr. Evje with some facts and background.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents and fans who were involved in the success of our Park High freshmen boys basketball program this year. I feel very fortunate to have been part of such a hard-working and disciplined group of young men who were willing to do whatever it took to improve their game. The parents have done a terrific job in raising these athletes! I thank them for all the support and cheering from the stands. Without the help of our community and parents, our year would not have been so special.
In regard to the article on the editorial page of the Enterprise on Wednesday, Feb. 17, entitled “Promise to reject nominee bad politics, terrible judgment” all members of Congress take an oath of office which states, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States …”
The Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party and Socialists have all let the American people down. All of us are disappointed, confused, angry and wondering about the future — not only for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren.
This whole issue pertaining to the Teslow grain silo is gotten out of hand. What drives a person to spend hard-earned money on a building that was abandoned 50 years ago? Are we out of seniors living on fixed income? How about indigent mothers — are they no longer around? I just saw a great article on Mr. Eaton and Counterpoint. So I know they are still doing a stellar job.
For many years scientists around the world, and the institutions of higher education they represent, have been communicating to us, “We have a problem.” Many years of research has revealed the same results. One legitimate conclusion can be drawn: Our planet is changing at an alarming rate due to the burning of fossil fuels by humans. By taking into account the research of the past 50 years with historical events, we can guide ourselves to a more sustainable future.
I read with interest the letter from Levi Ellington in the Feb. 9 Enterprise. He urged using Lent as an opportunity to adopt “a meat-free diet for Lent and beyond.” He was invoking “Christ” and “Lent” to support his plea.
This Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when many Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert before launching his ministry.
