Teamsters Honor Fallen Firefighter

Thousands of people from Maine, around the country, and the world, gathered in Portland on Sunday to honor Captain Joel Barnes of the Berwick Fire Department. The 32-year-old firefighter, a member of Teamsters Local 340, died on March 1 while fighting an apartment blaze. He was remembered at this weekend’s memorial service for his kind heart and heroic actions, having died shielding a fellow firefighter from the flames.

West Virginia Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, is up to his dirty tricks again. This time, it is at the expense of our children, their teachers and the community as a whole. In an attempt to ram through a bill (Senate Bill 451) that would tack harmful legislation on to the same bill providing for salary increases for teachers and school personnel, Senator Carmichael has manipulated the legislative process to achieve the outcome he wants.
