Marijuana education

The latest member of the Ford family was recently convicted of running a marijuana operation in Monroe. The family is guilty of cultivating 100 plants and is headed to prison at an annual cost of tens of thousands of dollars.

At the same time, Medical Marijuana Caregivers is offering free classes to Lincoln millworkers interesting in growing these same plants.

Would our money be better spent having the Fords teach these students?

June vote

Three men on the Camden Select Board decided to take away my right to vote. I am one of those young professionals who would benefit from McLean operating a residential recovery center at Fox Hill.

I am a single father of a 3-year-old daughter, and I rent an apartment in Camden. I want to work where I live. I want my daughter to attend school here. I have to drive a long distance to work, and I was hoping that I could apply for a finance or administration management job at McLean for which I am qualified.

I know I am not the only one who feels betrayed by members of the select board. Do they want all the businesses and young families to move away? Why would they not at least allow us to vote on this issue? If the town decided to vote this down, I would gladly accept this decision, but now I feel cheated of the opportunity to vote.

I never expected that three men would dare to interrupt
