To the editor:

I spent several hours going over the new proposed Madawaska School Budget scheduled to be voted on September 2. I have come to the conclusion that the Madawaska School Committee and School Department just don’t get it. In July Madawaska voters overwhelmingly rejected the school budget. Now the School Committee is proposing a new budget that is only about 14000 dollars less than what was rejected in July, a reduction of two tenths of one percent. Shades of the SAD 27 Budget?

As a parent, I believe the three most lasting gifts we can give our kids are unconditional love, a sound moral compass, and a good education.

Greetings and Good Day. My name is Gary Skillings, and I am writing to express my thanks to all of the “new” relatives and friends who attended a reception at the Knights of Columbus facility in Madawaska on July 17th.

Well we now know where the gun came from in the Lord shooting Rampage: looks like he got it from one of the victims after he had beat and tied him up. If
that victim would not have had that gun, none of these shootings and killings
would have happened.

Dear editor,

I was deeply offended by the recent remarks of Gov. Paul LePage. When discussing the issue of vetoing bills in the Maine Legislature, the governor said that even he understood the Maine Constitution despite the fact that he is French.

Since the age of 21 years old, and after 37 long years of searching for his biological mother, Gary Skillings found that he had roots in the valley.

Dear Editor:

Well the town and school budgets for Madawaska are finally in and I spent a lot of my time in the last few weeks going through them. And guess what? Almost without exception, every town and school employee gets a raise starting July 1. Some of the raises are fairly modest and I have no problem with the rank and file workers who are getting them. But some of the raises for top echelon employees and administrators are downright outrageous!

For decades, Maine's Second Congressional District was home to dozens of thriving paper, textile, shoe, and leather factories and mills that employed tens of thousands of hard-working Maine families.

To the editor:

With the SAD 27 school budget having been overwhelmingly voted down on June 9, it is time for everyone to work together to come up with a sustainable budget that everyone can live with.
