Talkback

I don't know anything about Scheinman, but Suher appears to care about nothing but his bottom line. Not much of a rallying figure for the BID opponents. This seems like a SLAPP suit, especially with the parallel federal action, designed to wear down the BID and its supporters. I hope they lose. ...(full comment)

Great invitation to community members. I now live in Florida and, so, cannot attend the games of my granchildren anymore. You made me realize that I should supportthe young people in my new community. It takes a village to raise a child! Thanks for bringing the obvious to light! ...(full comment)

Elizabeth Rockett Volkmann: Let yourself get bitten by the Northampton High soccer bug

Oh please, casting stones are you? Everything you spew as well as the "good" doctor in his articles spew are nothing but disdain towards our president and those of us who voted for him, which by the way is the majority of Americans, not only once but twice. Stop being a sore loser, and support our great country as we have had to with the past president before him. ...(full comment)

John Sheirer: Why we must stop the excesses of this liberal president!

I entirely agree with the opinion expressed in this article, but I would like to make one correction. Access to medical marijuana is not by "prescription." Doctors certify patients to use medical marijuana by writing a certification letter, which is a brief statement that the doctor believes that the possibility of benefit outweighs the possibility of harm for marijuana use to treat a debilitating condition. This is not a prescription. A prescription, which you take to the pharmacy, is written under a federal prescribing license, and federal law does not allow for marijuana use. There is a lot of confusion, even among medical people, about whether marijuana is prescribed. It is not prescribed. ...(full comment)

Editorial: Medical marijuana for students is hardly reefer madness

The blame does not lay with Amherst's emergency services; they have to respond to all calls. The blame lies with the irresponsible students and the ineffective rules and policy makers of the college. Simply put, there's needs to be zero tolerance of this behavior and full accountability. Instead, the residents will pay the price for the students ill behavior, while those who cause these serious exploits of bad behavior will get a slap in the hand, and do it all again. ...(full comment)

She was also a huge Republican who couldn't stand the Obamas. Didn't she recenlty compare Michele to a transexual and she said Obama was gay? Maybe they put out a contract on her. http://blogs.wsj.com/peggynoonan/2014/09/05/joan-rivers-the-entertainer/ ...(full comment)
