Letters to the Editor for Monday, March 18

first_imgWe often hear about a “woman’s intuition.” What if prodigies and women share one thing in common, the ability to communicate with a higher power? This is knowing without knowing how or why. Men have had a thousand years to solve humanity’s problems; they have failed miserably. The only way we are going to be able to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, disease, war and climate change is if women, relying on their intuition, collectively and individually solve them.If a woman is picked to run on the Democratic ticket, I will go on the record now of pledging $10,000 to the Democratic National Committee if a woman is picked to head the party.Americans will have a real choice in 2020; they can rely on women and their intuition or Donald Trump whose only source of knowledge is Fox News, who relies only on his own “native” intelligent without any input from intuition. There can be no greater choice between Democrats and Republicans. Richard MoodyMiddleburgh Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMen in power have failed, let’s try women insteadcenter_img Leverage water in AmsterdamWith a green movement underway with new solar, and wind farms, we should also look into what made Amsterdam the manufacturing city it was, and that is water. Amsterdam was formed where the Chuctanunda Creek, and the Mohawk River meet which helped power many of the mills that put Amsterdam on the map. There are many old dams along the Chuctanunda in Amsterdam that were used before for power so why not make them useful again? Amsterdam, along with county, and state officials can look into repairing those dams to make hydroelectricity that can power either government buildings, homes, businesses, or directly into the grid. With the newly constructed Chuctanunda Creek Trail which goes past these dams, the trail can help people see the historic dams, but also see how they are shaping Amsterdam’s future. The former polluted creek can have the potential to reduce the city’s carbon footprint, and I hoped is looked into more by government officials. While Amsterdam isn’t the manufacturing city it once was, these dams can help the city be known for something else.
