Forever Young gives back to U.S. veterans

Dear Editor:

In a few days, Forever Young will be taking 14 veterans back to Normandy, France, where on June 6, 1944, the invasion called D Day started.

They fought for our way of life and so we could enjoy the freedom we have today. So many didn’t make it back.

They will say and remember and say good bye to their fallen brothers on the 75th anniversary of D Day.

The trip was made possible, free of charge to these 14 veterans, by the organization Forever Young.

To the Editor:

What in the world is going on with our politicians!

They don’t want to do their job, they don’t want to ruffle feathers, they say!

Well, it’s time to ruffle their feathers and let them know who they work for; and why we the people put them in office.

All you hear about is the wall. It will take 2,500 miles of wall to enclose our friends and neighbors to the south. Never in the history of the world, have walls ever worked. The only thing the wall does is make an enemy of our friends and neighbor.

Public Notices Threatened

Print newspapers are still the primary way that tens of millions of Americans receive information about their communities and the world. They are also the way that many people find out about job opportunities. While we assume that everyone has an internet connection, the fact is that many areas of the country have limited or no internet service. According to the Federal Communications Commission, nearly 40 percent of Americans living in rural areas lack access to fixed broadband internet.

BSEE proposes revisions to Well Control Rule

Some recent editorials and news stories have falsely characterized regulatory review efforts currently underway at the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, apparently without having actually read the proposed revisions. One editorial in the Houston Chronicle expressed worries that many, including the U.S. Government and our agency, commonly referred to as BSEE, might have forgotten the lessons of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon tragedy and other offshore incidents. For the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement nothing could be further from the truth.

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

The coming holiday season is a joyous time of the year. It is also a dangerous time of the year to be driving. Most accidents are preventable. It only takes a little effort to drive safely and obey traffic laws. Failure to observe traffic laws can be costly in damages and loss of life.

Some of the major causes of accidents include:

1. Driving under the influence of alcohol. If you drink, don’t drive.

2. Speeding.  It better to be a little late than not get there because of an accident.
