Here is Cindy, one of the Sisters of St. Jude who carries her load, though
she is 'Independent' by choice and a member of the 'Extra Class' of
Marshfield. That is called OPL (Other People's Load) that she carries on
her back and during this season will involuntarily send yet another
tribute to the Church of the Town Government.
At this time of year she ponders the lives of Moses, Jesus, St. Thomas, John Wesley and Martin Luther King, continually wonders why the same messages go unanswered and that we invariably end up voting for a guy named Barrabas. Especially confusing since Barrabas was not thrown out of the schools along with God....
She also wonders how so many people can come up with so many organizations and buildings on their own which do so much good but now sees the government (them) wanting to subsidize and emulate that which once came from the heart and now is putting a handicap on the REAL charities of the land. So much has been made about separation of Church and State in the past but now we seem to be ready for another inefficiently run government enterprise that IS a church. ( a crummy church, but a church )
There is little left to the imagination when 'thinking' planners get together and scope out a solution for the ages instead of a few high rollers grabbing at 'things' for themselves and leaving the bills to those who can least afford the miss-spent targeting of OUR funds. Besides, government has NO business subsidizing such ventures as we have Churches like the Congregationalists who have gone over the top with senior planning and activities. ( at a fraction of the cost ) It would be a slap in the face to these and many other fine organizations in town who look out for these sort of things with NO confiscated funds.... Besides something freely taken usually has NO real perceived value @ the recipient..
As a result of this PILOT project called ' Extra Class ' which was founded in the better interests of the
caring rate payers that wish from now on that an Article for town meeting will
be thrown out for
discussion amonst US on this and other town media. Previously a FEW interests would
'roll their own', push it by the town meeting with a 'stacked and packed'
voter turnout. In the meantime, stressed out youngsters who are just
arriving home after a busy day are getting ready to report to their moonlighting
job. Lets do this for the children of ALL fronts..
Charity begins in your HEART, NOT at the assessors office...
Lets generate and encourage a group called the ' Extra Class ' consisting of
seniors who would voluntarily meet as a ( class ) within the schools on a daily
basis for such activities as:
Teachers Aid help, Interpersonal involvement with the school kids, enjoyment of the school lunch program, have use of the auditoriums, music rooms, libraries, study halls, sports facilities, present valuable lessons in a classroom atmosphere of their individual expertise and life's experience, act as mentors and friends to the youngsters.
( A first class swimming pool could also be shared near the gym )
It is felt that our seniors should not be closeted away in a 'castle' which by the way payment for will certainly add stress to the already overtaxed families in town as this charity would be extended by the government as a result of a confiscatory tax and not an action from the hearts of the locally generous.. Socialism has NO heart, WE do!! Further that this project should be done by individuals in cases like as churches, benevolent, service, fraternal, and 'silent' organizations who have done much good and to very high success in the past. We are not a Socialist Society who take our being from the State, but are a Social Society with obligations to each other. We feel that the seniors have a lot to give and are worthy of our respect and our thanks for carrying their years and giving us this great country.
It is also felt that the 'attitude' towards seniors could otherwise grow to be most contentious and that division between the ages would increase as a result of the socialist plan and multi million dollar cost. ( est. 8 million when you look @ the undercarriage ) We will refer to a system called 'Granny Dumping' which is seeing steady rise in retirement communities and is itself an alarming trend. Don't let us drive the wedge any deeper.
We therefore recommend that an infrastructure and accommodation of our
seniors be put forth at once to affect the most civil good and to keep our
seniors on a human being footing with the rest of the community to the end that
they are physically, mentally and Spiritually healthier in the long haul. For
the isolationists, we could offer the use of the Webster Estate, Coast Guard
Radio Station, various private halls, and to take themselves OFF the taxpayer
The town's several Churches, Ladies Benevolent Societies, Knights of Columbus, Masons, Kiwanis, Sons of Italy, Moose, Elks, Eastern Star, Rebeccas, Odd Fellows, and MANY 'quiet' service organizations still have seats available on both sides of the lectern.
Since the money changers have started their own church ( on us ) there exists some apathy, miss-aligned spirits and a general malaise... This too will pass as we say, " get your dingy digits off the denim... Be part of the Supply, not part of the Load....."

* You may already know that the world's FIRST radio
broadcast was made from right here in Marshfield, Mass. in 1906. We also
have a neighbor named Jerry Williams who started the ball rolling in our time as
a radio talk show host and made a profound difference on how some of us look at
things.. Special wellness wishes to Jerry..
Also, don't forget Jim Cipullo on Monday eves local telly ch.-13 @7pm and George Shaw on Thursdays @ 8pm. They always have interesting people on who are part of our lives.
Call in @ 837-4384, tell them how you feel...
Now, YOU the people can do the same right here..
This is a happening media, get YOUR word out, tell it like it is. The fact that WE have heard nothing of the Seniors Centaur Promotional Society or the Failed School System belies the fact that THEY feel NO need to communicate with US.
C'mon, lets see your 'broadcasts'....
