Stop lawmakers from raiding the state employee pension system

To The Daily Sun,

"This bill requires premium contribution amounts for retiree health benefits (from) retired state employees who are Medicare eligible."

This is the first line of the amended analysis to the substitute amendment to HB-1591 that has passed the House and this week will be acted on by the Senate Finance Committee.

There has already been an increase in state retirees' medication co-pays, and for the first time, the two houses of our Legislature are working together to fill a $5 million gap in funding by directly raiding your 80-year-old neighbor's state employee pension.

Please contact your senator and state representative today. Ask them to kill this move that will harm the helpless.

There is absolutely no excuse for leg-holding trapping of animals

To The Daily Sun,
I could not agree more with Hillarie Goldstein of Franklin when she writes in her letter, pointing out the horrible, prolonged pain and terror trapped animals are subjected to.
I think perhaps her assumption that the alternative — hunting, "kills them quickly," might often not be the case either, the wounded animal managing to get out of sight and out of range of the hunter but left to survive in pain and handicapped. However, agreeing with Ms. Goldstein, "Hunt if you must."
In any case, in my opinion, there is NO excuse for leg-hold trapping FOR ANY REASON EVER!
