Letter to the editor: Pipeline would be bad for Grafton

April 23rd, 2017

To the Editor: I am writing about the Spectra pipeline, a high-pressure gas pipeline proposed to run through Grafton. Growing up in Grafton, it was easy for me to focus my concern on problems beyond my hometown. I educated myself on environmental hazards far from me, like Hurricane Katrina or Shanghai air pollution. These challenges […]

March 26th, 2017

To the Editor: Who votes themselves a 40 percent pay increase?  The unfortunate answer is our legislature! I want to make the point that last August 2016, many small (and large) businesses were not granted a tax free weekend, because the legislature emphasized that this tax free weekend in 2016 would create a greater deficit to the […]
