If God really wants to bless us perhaps he could try preventing the disasters from happening in the first place. After all, an all Powerful Being shouldn't have too much of a problem with that! That would really be a big help wouldn't it? View Comment
I am sure that I would need much more information about how the program would work before I could really tell if this is an issue. If any town money is involved by going to faith based organizations for any reason, this might be a problem. Tax money can not be spent in that way. There is no problem if these folks want to volunteer as private citizens, leaving the faith based organizations out of it. I know that this is a small issue,but I am concerned when ever there is a question about this stuff.
I am a non-religious person and don't like it when religion gets into government in any way.
I don't expect to make any further comments on this issue. I just wanted to bring this to the attention of the other readers.
Wish you the best of luck in your endeavor. View Comment
"Every town in the country uses faith based organizations in their emergency Preparedness plans."
It would be interesting to know where you got this information. Or are you just making this up.
Were you trying to say that by sticking up for the US Constitution that I am a left wing nut job.? Interesting!
Me thinks there might be a little right wing nut job work going on here!
Have a good day! View Comment
It is not the Town of Northbridge's concern about what kind of help these faith based organizations need. The town should take care of their own needs and let the faith based organizations take care of their own business.
There is a little matter of separation of church and state here. Public money isn't to be spent on religion! View Comment
What do you expect when you keep cutting budgets and laying off people, We need to invest more $$$ in the DPW. You get what you are willing to pay for!
I guess as usual it is the republicans causing the problems!

What is your point? Do you think that sex offenders should be protected?
We are not talking about drug dealers, drunks, or abusive parents. We are talking about people who rape and sexually abuse our children and other people. I for one think I have every right to know if a sex abuser lives anywhere near me. Why would anyone in their right mind want to protect those kind of people. They should be locked up for the rest of their lives. Once a sex abuser always a sex abuser! It is a mental illness that seems to be untreatable. Don't you read the paper and watch TV. View Comment
Hey bruinsfancam8: What's your point?are you insinuating that people who live in the village are not as good as you or anyone else?
Obviously this young man has some mental or emotional problems. Where he lives has no bearing on this case. Hopefully he will get the help he needs.Shame shame on you!
There are many wonderful people who live in the village, I think you owe them an apology. View Comment
I did think it over and decided that voting for Romney would be the dumbest thing I have ever done in my life. I must say that it didn't take very long for me to come up with that conclusion. All I had to do was compare the two men. Presidents are supposed to be very special people. I see nothing special about Mr. Romney. Just another money hungry plutocrat. View Comment
The biggest issue in this election is who gets to name the Supreme Court judges. If Romney gets in, good bye to woman's rights and God knows what else. It would set the country back over 100 years. Everything we have worked for would disappear in a very short time.
Obama must be re-elected! Only a fool would vote against him.
Strong language? yes,but sometimes we need to hear strong language! View Comment
Your reply is just about what I expected from the right wingers out there I learned a long time ago that "it is impossible to reason with a person who has given up his reason". For me your last words tell me all I have to know about you. YOU MAY BE A SHEEP BUT I AM NOT,
If this so called God you speak of wanted to bless America, we wouldn't be in the condition we are in now. After all if this all powerful being you speak of wanted it done it would already have been done.PEOPLE RUN THIS COUNTRY NOT INVISIBLE SPIRITS!
That is all I have to say on the matter. I like to keep things very simple.
Please don't waste your time trying to convince me that I am wrong. I have heard it all before thanks!
Obama might not be perfect but he sure beats anything being suggested! View Comment
Ryan (ROBIN) did not make Romney (BATMAN) look very good in this debate.
Looks like Obama (SUPERMAN) will win again.I don't think we will have another Bush type(JOKER) in the White House. The country just can't afford it! View Comment
WOW! I never realized that we had so many right wingers in town. That explains why Northbridge is the most backward and shabby town in the valley and perhaps the state. I have no doubt that these same folks will vote for Scott Brown as well. I couldn't disagree more! Money isn't everything folks! You can't take it with you. View Comment
