Letters 9 – 9 – 2011

VY protester’s actions dangerous and selfish in wake of storm 

It’s hard to believe that on Tuesday, August 30th, during Vermont’s recovery from a hundred-year flood, ten anti-nuclear protesters would break the law and trespass at Vermont Yankee, but they did.

It’s difficult to understand why the protesters used locked chains so that First Responders had to be diverted from helping Vermont’s citizens, but they did.

It’s incomprehensible that the protesters would ignore Vermont’s local law enforcement when they explained the extent of the natural disaster and asked them to leave peacefully (before six were arrested), but they didn’t.

You’d think that the protesters would have sense enough to know that immediately following a devastating flood is not a good time to protest as Vermonters look for our missing and mourn our dead, but they didn’t.

They just don’t get it, they really don’t.

Celebrate Constitution Day in St. Albans

Saturday, September 17, 2011

10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Taylor Park, St. Albans

Let’s join together on September 17th, as Americans united, to celebrate our U.S. Constitution and its immeasurable value to us as citizens of the United States. It is time to restore American patriotism and unity.

Why celebrate? On September 17th, 1787, our U.S. Constitution was ratified in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The U.S. Constitution, a unique document among nations, guarantees and protects our rights as individuals and as a sovereign nation. Every elected official takes an oath to protect the Constitution and defend those rights.

This event is sponsored by ACWA, American Conservative Women in Action of Franklin County. ACWA’s mission is to preserve and protect our Constitution and our freedoms for future generations – our children and grandchildren.

Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you and your family at this patriotic event in Franklin County.
