He should serve 12 years, what he did was disgusting. He STOLE from the Special Olympics (aRead More non-profit) that relies on contributions and TRUST of others. What did he do with the money he stole from Milford Rotary? I have been affiliated with Milford Rotary with a member since I was little, I worked the lobster bakes, so I take this personally. Weir is/was rich, make him sweat it out for longer than 4 years, no matter who his lawyer is. Otherwise it sounds like Milford Politics strikes yet again. It is all about who you know in this small city with a big heart.

The writer of this article should make a correction...only the first two on the list of 7 possiblyRead More contaminated fruits are organic. Organic produce usually has the PLU starting with the number 9. All the others listed as Orchard Perfect fruits are not organic. Orchard Perfect is just a brand and is not organic. Way to scare people into thinking organic is bad.
Victor July 23, 2014 at 09:25 am
Jen - you're totally correct.
Kara Seymour July 23, 2014 at 09:32 am
the article clearly states the list of products recalled, two of which are organic, so no correctionRead More is warranted.

You keep "reputable sources" as an inclusion in your comments. Your words alone have noRead More conviction, Ed. and the loss of one Life is a Huge Crime. How many lives lost would make an impression on you, Ed? If the loss was within your family, would you consider that a more substantial number than of those massacred within schools and theaters and shopping centers and businesses? Well for each child and adult lost to a bullet, a parent or relative or friend is grieving somewhere. and that loss supersedes any number which you can fictionalize in your decrease diatribe.
Thomas Paine July 23, 2014 at 11:47 am
There are three schools of thought on the quantitative impact of armed citizens and the preventionRead More of crimes. Many gin-rights types will point to one study that suggested that there are 800,000 to 1.2mm such "events" annually where an armed citizen either defends themselves or others with a firearm and/or the mere presence of the firearm halted a crime. That study was done but those with a narrative supporting 2A rights and self-defense. On the other end of the spectrum was work done by an anti-gun academic who concluded that there are 100-120,000 such incidents per year. His effort was to debunk the other, pro-gun report and yet he found 9-10,000 such incidents PER MONTH in the process. Other studies, including one done recently within the Obama Administration's Justice Department puts the number somewhere between 200,000 and 600,000 such events. Sorry Mike and Bobbie but even the guy who would agree with you on gun control found at least 100,000 events per year where an armed citizen prevented or interrupted a violent crime. Some "inconvenient" facts.

In Woodbury it is the stress of the property values decreasing and the ever increasing of taxes.Read More People can not afford their taxes now. This years shell game, the First Selectman and the BOF Chair want everyone to believe that only 40% of the taxpayers taxes are going up. 40% increase in stress in those people's lives. Don't worry though the First Selectman and the BOF Chair have stated that no ones taxes are going up. ??? It's called talking out of both sides of your mouth. Tell the voters whatever they want to hear to get the budget passed. The voters have another chance to VOTE DOWN the proposed budget on the 23rd. Remember VOTE YES FOR HIGHER TAXES.

Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experiencedRead More it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks
This guy deserves his bad reputation.

My experience is not anecdotal, that is usually a one time situation. My experience spans 25 years,Read More in different industries, and being part of hiring thousands of people at all different job levels. I am sure there are companies who have discriminated but they are few and far between. With all the women in HR positions all over this country, if this was news, it would have been made news long ago. Plus, people are litigious and companies are not going to risk that. In addition, since I have been privy to employee lawsuits, I never saw ONE that had to do with pay disparity with men. Sometimes they had to do with sexual harrassment, however the biggest number, according to statistics, is retaliation for being on leave, and that has nothing to do with gender.
