‘No’ to second Bay Bridge Editor, Response to: letter by Rob Etgen, Eastern Shore Land Conservancy I agree with much of what you have said regarding traffic and public transportation. We retired to the Eastern Shore about 10 years ago from New York and didn’t give much thought to the lack of public transportation. We… Read more »

Bad decisions Editor, Four years back the Worcester school board spent $50,000 to import a new school super from Portland with the required suitcase of diplomas and titles.   And, for $200,000 a year, he showed us rednecks how to cope with Obama’s Common Cure continued destruction of American philosophy, or what’s left of it….

Rather than exercising the option to renegotiate the GM’s contract, which his contract permitted, and using the time… Read more »

The justifications for support of HRC provided by Ms. Furnari… Read more »

Process flawed Editor, The election process [in Ocean Pines] was a bunch of garbage. As I said in an open meeting, Joe Reynolds brings [ballot counting] up every year to get people fired up and get people to his website. Then he doesn’t say a word about it until the next year and waits until… Read more »

Thanking good Samaritans     Editor, I want to thank the four young gentlemen who came to my rescue on Ocean Pines Parkway, Wednesday, July 20. I had taken too sharp a turn into my friend’s driveway and ended in her ditch. These young men, each in their separate cars, saw me, pulled over, asked if… Read more »

Unprofessional OPA Editor, I am increasingly alarmed at the quality of governance and the tone of the debate in this community. Ocean Pines provides the complete package: a comfortable, safe living environment in a reasonable climate, with a wide variety of opportunities to indulge whatever passion moves you. Yet, each year at this time the… Read more »
