There is nothing more pernicious, nor more destructive for civil society, then the Religious Freedom Bill that was being considered by the Maine State Legislator and by other Republican State Legislators (36 of them), some having been enacted into law. The Bill was being sponsored by Sen. David Burns, R-Whiting. He apparently withdrew it on 15 April after receiving a lot of National scrutiny from Religious and Civil Rights groups. That is a Good Thing.

The 300 or so people who attended the UMFK Foundation concert at Fox auditorium Saturday night were treated to fabulous Cajun music by "Bugaloo Swami." We were entertained from the first number to the last and would have stayed much longer if the band had played on. The audience responded by participating in the music and ended it with a standing ovation.

"For hundreds of years, men and women have had the right to life; but many are now searching for the right to die. Assisted suicide and euthanasia is one of the world’s most controversial topics. Many people think it is only fair that one may choose their own destiny even if that means death. Opposers of assisted suicide and euthanasia use the argument that every life is special, and should not be taken even with the person's permission. The government should put laws in place to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia so that men and women can die with dignity.

Dear Editor,

Lawmakers recently had the opportunity to meet with nearly 100 employers, workers, students and community leaders during our three day jobs tour in Aroostook County. We were grateful for the opportunity to listen and hear from so many people.
