Letters to the Editor

July 21, 2011

Thank you

The Board of the Williston Community Food Shelf would like to once again thank all our friends, families, and businesses from the Town of Williston and beyond for the generous donations that were given at the town’s July 4th Parade!

Our float’s theme of “We The People Feed The People” (thank you, Dave Glickman and family) reflects the attitude of our town to help our neighbors on a continual basis.

These donations are so needed during the summer months as we attempt to feed families who require extra food to feed their children who are home on summer vacation. Your generosity and kindness are an inspiration to us all.

Cathy Michaels, Board President, Williston Community Food Shelf

    I would like to explain the charges of unlawful restraint because it sounds really awful. No we didn’t hold anyone hostage. We were simply standing in front of some VT Gas/Michel’s trucks. They were in no way restrained. When the men decided to leave, they simply backed up and took off. The police have been hired by VT Gas and they sure do have a way of turning a phrase.

    Mr. Recchia refers to this action as a “last-ditch” attempt to scuttle the pipeline. Wrong again! This was far from our last attempt to bring sanity and reason to our state officials who refuse to listen or help.

    Nate Palmer and Kari Cuneo and their families are not the only land owners who have fought this immoral taking of their land. So many folks have lost that fight for lack of time and money. It’s quite intimidating to go before the Public Service Board and their team of lawyers, to sit down at a table filled with VT Gas attorneys and not have anyone to watch your back and advise you.

    When people are up against the wall, they fight back any way they can. Peaceful protests not only express our frustration but they help bring attention to what is happening to our friends and neighbors..

    So Mr. Recchia, we are not done!
