Sorry for the Interruption
I apologize for the interruption, especially if you have been trying to add something to the site over the past week and a few days. While the public side has remained up, we were experiencing some problems with something on the back end that was beyond my capabilities.

Suggestions for Improving Morning Star News
There are two currently untapped local resources. One, is the young people, who can give us all insight into 'their' world, thoughts and opinions. The other is the Seniors. Retired people need to keep active, and they have so much to share. We especially invite them to take up our offer of input. Old people are a wealth of stories, anecdotes and history, not to mention 'wisdom'.

Magic City Morning Star 'Pro-Levesque' Campaign?
As for those feral types who apparently inhabit some places in Maine USA, who seem to completely abhor the community's right to access a variety of opinions, and who seem to think that no opinions other than their own have a right to be aired in the Media, may I just say, that the last time I checked, Maine was somewhere on the east coast of the United States of America, and not in 'The People's Republic of China'.

People's Referendum to Overturn Gay Marriage Law, Enacted by Legislature, and Permit People to Decide the Issue
A People's Veto Referendum is underway, seeking to overturn this law, so that the Maine people - not the Legislature - might be able to determine the status of marriage within the State of Maine. My wife and I are among the many circulators of this petition, and will have them available at our home - at 146 Katahdin in Millinocket, Maine - for anyone who would like to sign this petition.

Morning Star Writer Invitation
The Magic City Morning Star is looking for a few more good writers.
Oct 25, 2007 - 1:03:28 PM
October 25th, 2007 at Morning Star News
Well as you may have noticed, The Real Editor has begun to work on the website, shifting articles from the 'Letters' section to their proper place. So this is good news. Today we have some important news about your property rights; an extract of a new novel; commentary on the immigration question; some dry academic stuff about a dead king of Israel; a criticism of the wife of an ex-king of America who wants the position for herself, and something even funnier.

God's Timing - Baruch Atah Adonai!
And then I see today, that Ken is OK - And there it was: A man dedicated to Millinocket; a man who gives of his own substance; a man in deep straits; a man who has been going through the testing of refinement. And so it was that I made a plea which I will repeat here: There is someone in need of all the physical, financial, emotional and spiritual support that can be given by those who claim to have God in their hearts.

To Be Continued Soon, If All Goes Well
Due to what has become a comedy of errors, or tragedy of circumstances, depending on perspective, I have had to leave the Magic City Morning Star to its own devices temporarily. My thanks to Bendedek for keeping it going.
