With many of our writers having 'disappeared' over time, it is reassuring to find others to replace them. We wholeheartedly welcome them to Magic City Morning Star News. As locals may or may not know, Ken Anderson has been recovering from quite a serious illness.

Gilad Schalit - Free at What Cost?
The rabbinic sages were very clear. The ransom to be paid cannot involve the murder of other Jews. This deal - like its predecessors - is not in line with Jewish tradition. It stands in opposition to Jewish tradition.

Magic City Morning Star, Past & Future
As for the Magic City Morning Star, until I believe that I can afford the time to do a good job of maintaining the Magic City Morning Star, I don't know my time would be worthwhile. I still harbor hopes that I will one day find myself in a position to be able to contribute once again in some meaningful way to the Magic City Morning Star, but am not sure when or what that might look like.

The Maine Point of a Magic Conversation
Ken battles to keep up with his costs and he does it for the locals. I admire him for that. I wish I could do more and fear what will happen if I can't continue with my own input.

OPM: Other People's Money
If there is one thing that Millinocket  needs, it is business. However, it seems that someone has been playing around with the language again, because I was always under the impression that a business was something that involved either producing a product or performing a service in return for a profit. People who invested time or money into a business would hope to see a return on their investment in the form of a profit. Otherwise, businesses that failed to produce a profit would be forced to go out of business, which sometimes involved filing for bankruptcy. I have been through it and there is no shame in that.

Reflections on Being Home
I've been home for a week or so now, and already the time that we were away is beginning to feel like a dream. The house was not empty while we were gone, yet things are pretty much where we left them, which is sort of nice but a little eerie at the same time. A book that I read more than two years ago remains in the place where I set it when I had finished with it. Other things have changed, and mostly for the better. Projects that I had begun before leaving Millinocket have been completed, and probably better than I would have done had it been left to me. The backyard is more orderly than it was when I lived here before, and probably easier to maintain in the winter. Some of my favorite trees have been cut down, but that's okay; trees are trees, and I don't want anyone accusing me of being a tree hugger. Trees are a renewable resource, and if they were truly worth keeping they'll grow back.

Traveling, With Cats
Last Monday, my wife and I left Fayetteville, North Carolina, where we have been living and working over the past year and a half, to return to our home in Millinocket, Maine. We brought with us four of the five cats who were part of our family when we left Millinocket more than two years ago.

Under Cover of a "Stimulus" Bill, Congress Seeks to Overturn the Second Amendment
In a Bill introduced on the first day of the present session of Congress, with no coverage from the mainstream media, H.R. 45 (Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009) targets gun owners in the United States. While everyone's attention was on the bogus "stimulus" plan to print and spend trillions of tax dollars, this legislation is worming its way through the House and Senate.

MAGIC Consents to an Interview
While WSYY Radio's recent pleas for the Millinocket Area Growth and Investment Council to to come on the air, making themselves accountable to the public, have gone unanswered, a spokesperson for the organization agreed to be interviewed by the Katahdin area's primary source of accurate news and information, the Magic City Morning Star.

MAGIC Members Witholding Information of Involvement in the Backcountry Project
When the Portland Press Herald first reported on the secret meetings that were being held between our state government and various environmental organizations, I was shocked but not surprised, since I had been warning of just such a collusion for the past few years, as had others before me.

Last week the Katahdin Times published an editorial decrying the fact that Millinocket's dirty laundry was be being aired throughout the state. I didn't actually read the article, but heard about it from someone else, who may not have read it either, so please excuse me if I'm wrong.

As The Worm Turns
MILLINOCKET -- Last April, we read about the Backcountry Project, a series of meetings in which Maine state agencies conspired in secret with several environmental organizations to gain control of the rural areas of Maine. We have now learned much more, and some of it is close to home.

Another Mystery Surfaces
MILLINOCKET -- We've cleared up the mystery of the Polstein-McLean signs that were reportedly stolen over the weekend, in that they had been removed by the property owners who never gave permission for the signs to be placed there anyhow. Still, we were left with other signs that were vandalized, according to the Katahdin Press. This leads only to another mystery.

The Greening of Michigan's Upper Peninsula
The night before last, Councilor Polstein bemoaned the fact that only one other councilor had shown interest in his plan to model the Katahdin region after Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Since I am from the UP of Michigan, I'd like to give you some insight on how well that's working out for them.

MILLINOCKET -- Determined to come once again against the powers that have controlled this Katahdin area town for the past several years, a group of concerned citizens have organized themselves into an ad hoc organization for the purpose of taking back control of Millinocket politics, and beginning the process of restoring the town's ailing economy.
