Dear Editor
Trash on the banks of the Licking River Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

I live on Pike Street in Falmouth. The Licking River sits right in my back yard, more or less. I own another piece of land outside of town where the same river sits in my front yard. This town is known for its rivers. It angers me that there are members of the community who thinks it is okay to drive to the end of my street and throw personal trash in or around "our" river and in my back yard.

A local's views on the Bluegrass Pipeline project Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Regarding the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline project, while the “open house” meetings that the developer is holding may be open, they do not provide a landowner with a very balanced view of the project. They are happy to talk pleasantly about how they have 24/7 “state-of-the-art pipeline control centers” in Colorado and Louisiana, but they are more reluctant to explain how earlier this year, even with that level of monitoring a leak from a valve can go undetected in Parachute, CO for days on end, leaking toxic benzene into a nearby creek until it was found purely by accident. They say that their pipelines are constructed to “meet or exceed both federal and industry-wide standards”, but they cannot give specifics on how they go about cleaning up contaminated earth and groundwater if a leak occurs.  And they do occur with alarming frequency all across the US.

Is the Pipeline potential danger to land owners? Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

If you own any property in Pendleton County, beware:  the Williams Company is looking for some prime property to run their potentially highly flammable gas pipeline through.  They have a history of safety violations and pipeline leaks, some of which have resulted in the loss of life. They want to give you approximately $2,400 in order to get a fifty-foot easement for life across your property.

Legislators are wrestling whether to expand Medicaid Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

State legislators across the country are wrestling with whether to expand Medicaid, with the bulk of the funding to come from the federal government, thanks to Obamacare.

Thus far, a substantial number of states have rebuffed the feds' offer -- or are leaning that way. They're right to do so. The states and the federal government have spent trillions on the program -- but new data show that Medicaid beneficiaries' health is not getting any better.
