Storm saviors

We simply survived one other storm with no energy. When thanking important staff, we’ve got missed two vastly necessary groups — Nationwide Grid and their friends — some from as distant as Canada. I need to embrace all tree elimination providers.  In contrast to different important staff, we could not see these groups working diligently.

Being with out energy is exasperating and out of our management. All of us wait by candle gentle and depend the minutes. We cheer when the ability is restored. All of us then return to our lives.

We owe an enormous “thanks” to each particular person on these groups. They reply shortly to each outage or downed tree. They work in horrible climate.

I watched Walnut Tree Elimination Service take away a big tree from a neighbor’s yard. After I regarded out, I noticed an orange-clad particular person hanging increased than three tales and supervising the elimination of this tree. An enormous “claw” carried the tree over a pool, porch, driveway and dropped it on the street. In a flash, the crew chopped it up and positioned the items into the wooden chipper. One employee was singing as he labored. They cleaned the roadway and have been gone!

Give a loud shout out to those professionals. Thanks!

My spouse and I requested mail-in voting packets for the upcoming common election. We accomplished the poll and returned them on 10/2.

On 10/16, we acquired one other set of ballots. Understanding we had beforehand submitted our accomplished ballots, we thought the brand new ballots have been despatched in error and ready to shred them. That was till I checked the Secretary of State’s web site and observed each our ballots have been rejected! No cause is offered, nevertheless there’s discover that on 10/14, new ballots have been mailed.

I strongly urge every one that used mail-in poll choice to confirm your poll’s standing on the Secretary of State’s web site to ensure your vote is accepted.

We’re at present awaiting phrase from our city’s administrator on why the ballots have been rejected so we don’t make the identical mistake.

Biden’s previous

Joe Biden offered his vice presidency to international nations with a purpose to enrich himself and his household. The proof of that is overwhelming, even together with a video of him bragging about quid professional quo with the Ukraine. General there have been tens of millions, even billions of {dollars} concerned.

This was a case of “in workplace” treason.

The very corrupt media is hiding, masking this up. With a mountain of proof, not one single query was requested on the ABC City Corridor Assembly with Biden.

Unions step up

I wish to acknowledge and acknowledge the braveness of the police unions within the cities of Duxbury, Hanson and Pembroke for his or her assist for Tatyana Semyrog in her battle to characterize the residents of the aforementioned cities. These distinctive officers perceive the significance of electing officers who will assist legislation enforcement and hearken to them when necessary points that immediately influence their means to carry out their public security duties come up. Sadly our present state consultant thought there was no must conduct a public listening to on the problem of police reform.

Police reform is a severe situation and the general public, all the public, together with police needs to be on the desk the place all stakeholders can take part.
