Joseph, if you don't Patch, you can simply unsubscribe to it.

I appreciate the Patch greatly. I don't know what Joseph's problem is with it but he looks prettyRead More silly going off on a rampage about things that have nothing to do with Patch readers or the "Blue Moon" article he chose to spew his political hatred under! If you don't like Patch, don't click on it to see any of the news and information. I appreciate reading about what is going on locally because the Hartford Courant doesn't bother covering our community news anymore like it used to when they had different regional editions. It's as if our part of CT doesn't exist when you read through the skimpy Courant! I hope that the Patch continues to give us what's going on in our area of CT, if not thru AOL, then online somewhere else. Thank you, Patch!!!

Unfortunately both Thomas and Basha are correct, what took Jackson and the LC to destroy in 5 years,Read More will take a lot longer to make right. Similar to the state of the country, it has been destroyed beyond it ever being fixed in my lifetime I'm sure. As far as the percentages go Thomas; I would love to know just how many of the 51 % were home owners and how many were renters. It seem as with the Presidential Elections you were given a choice between a Politician and a Game Show Host giving away a grand list of prizes! What chance do the Republicans have when the Democrats Promise the world? And how long will it take the ones who fell for those promises to realize that's all they were - empty promises? Basha if this article were 25/30 years ago I'm sure Hamden would have been at the top of the list, but I'm afraid sadly our time has long since past!

Wethersfield? A small town? Really???

I wish I knew what the criteria was for this committee to pick the ideal small town in Connecticut.Read More I just feel choices could be better for picking the idea of a smown. Personally, two towns I would pick as my top 10 would be either Essex or Old Saybrook. Each build these towns today show a quaintness and historical perspective that cannot be beat. Each has its own characteristics but most importantly each is privy two being located on a river – an important factor in our colonial period for transportation. Even Middletown should be considered as top 10 due to the location and ease of formidable transportation. I wish the committee would outline the criteria.

R.I.P to an American Hero. We are proud that Pete Seeger signed onto the Fluoride Action Network'sRead More statement in opposition to water fluoridation - the politically-motivated, addition of unnecessary, health-robbing, money-wasting fluoride chemicals into our bodies via the water supply in a failed attempt to reduce tooth decay See: http://www.fluoridealert.org/researchers/professionals-statement/text/

I wanted to share this from Arlo who passed this on Facebook a half and hour ago: Pete Seeger: IRead More usually do a little meditation and prayer every night before I go to sleep - Just part of the routine. Last night, I decided to go visit Pete Seeger for a while, just to spend a little time together, it was around 9 PM. So I was sitting in my home in Florida, having a lovely chat with Pete, who was in a hospital in New York City. That's the great thing about thoughts and prayers- You can go or be anywhere. I simply wanted him to know that I loved him dearly, like a father in some ways, a mentor in others and just as a dear friend a lot of the time. I'd grown up that way - loving the Seegers - Pete & Toshi and all their family. I let him know I was having trouble writing his obituary (as I'd been asked) but it seemed just so silly and I couldn't think of anything that didn't sound trite or plain stupid. "They'll say something appropriate in the news," we agreed. We laughed, we talked, and I took my leave about 9:30 last night. "Arlo" he said, sounding just like the man I've known all of my life, "I guess I'll see ya later." I've always loved the rising and falling inflections in his voice. "Pete," I said. "I guess we will." I turned off the light and closed my eyes and fell asleep until very early this morning, about 3 AM when the texts and phone calls started coming in from friends telling me Pete had passed away. "Well, of course he passed away!" I'm telling everyone this morning. "But that doesn't mean he's gone~~Arlo Guthrie, Tuesday Jan 28, 2014. Thanks, Arlo. Mary A Miller.

The first two shows were a huge success. We are looking forward to a great closing night. If youRead More haven't seen Mrs. Riddle's Refectory at Avon Old Farms School, you will not want to miss this brilliant performance in this very special place. The show begins at 8:00 and is free to the public. Hope to see you there!
