Epsom Food Pantry


Well, Santa will be here before you know it.  This is a busy time at the Pantry. We try and have little extras on hand for the families. Liz is constantly on the lookout at the grocery stores. It is an amazing trip, believe me, as she shops for the Pantry along with her coupon satchel. Those checkout gals are amazing as they try and deal with all the coupons.


And then our Ken. He is just awesome with his running of our Pantry And the mileage he puts on his truck picking up food with Armand and delivering to those in need with no transportation.


And I cannot end with my praises without the fabulous job our treasurer does. Cheryl is a task master to this position and we all tow the mark because, as you know, IRS keeps an eagle eye on nonprofit organizations. We save every slip and we document every transaction we do. But we love doing it.


Now, we do need jelly or jams. and some hash would be helpful. At this time of year anything you send us will be gratefully received. Candy would be neat too, to pass out to the parents to put in stockings. Thank you to one and all who either send us money, place food in our boxes around town, and the family that keep our eggs and milk in the fridge.


Until next time,

Letter To The Editor


With all due respect to Cheryl Dean, she does finally concede my point in a round about way. To this day, Lilly Ledbetter is poorer because of gender pay/bonus/retirement/benefit discrimination even with the 1963 FAIR PAY ACT having been in place for over half a century. Millions of other women (and their families) especially those who were in retail and service industries feel the effects of gender-based compensation inequities and will for decades to come.


The Ledbetter case became an issue in the 2008 Presidential race because (then) Senator Obama had supported  enacting law to counter the injustice of this “monumental case” while Senator McCain opposed its passage. In 2009, a Democratic House and Senate passed the Ledbetter Act and Democratic President Obama signed it into law. There are other loopholes still out there.


I will concede a couple points to Cheryl re the airline. Eventually all employees at my airline were sucked into Wall Street takeover, junk bond debt, selling assets, legally ‘skimming’ pension funds, slashing contracted wages, thumbing their noses at labor/management protocol, dragging company through bankruptcy three times before finally selling skeleton back to employees. Both sexes suffered in the end. You just had to be there to see the subtle sexism at the beginning of the takeover. You had to be there for the months of strike. For the five year court battle all the way to the US Supreme Court. For the additional ten years before receiving my final settlement check.
