Letter: Festivus-worthy spending

Letter:
Festivus-worthy spending

Here we go again! The annual Festivus report is in on some of the stupid expenditures that have been voted on in government this year. Millions spent on a study about gambling that paid for pigeons to play slot machines; another study that finally verified that kids crave junk food; $25 million for art projects to be displayed around New York City; more than $11 million that a US agency put out to request Vietnamese citizens stop burning their trash; $250 million to build border walls — not here but in the Middle East and Africa; $549 million on planes for the troops in Afghanistan that were left behind and turned into scrap.

God help us!

Locals Brave Cold For Hanford Mills Ice Harvest

One Of Coldest Weekends Ideal

For Hanford Mills’ Ice Harvest

In it’s 29th year, the annual Hanford Mills Museum’s Ice Harvest Festival attracted hundreds of local families to East Meredith Saturday, eager to participate in the old fashioned ice harvest. Pictured above, Josh Coleman, 8, Windsor, helped cut ice blocks from the pond, pushed the blocks up a ramp on the bank, and pulled them on a sled to the ice house. Helping Josh in the photo is Milford resident Marvin Zachow. Besides the ice harvest, guests could observe ice sculptures, ride on a horse drawn wagon, and watch a live blacksmith demonstration. When guests got cold, Lori Solenstein, Milford, pictured at right, and many other volunteers were ready to serve soup which had been donated by many different local businesses.
