We live on the coastline, these storms are ordinary. Buffalo doesn't even measure in inches. Their hydrants jut out from heated buildings down town. Maybe the Governor is from around D.C. where what we call a dusting, creates pileups on the highway. 1600 calls to the police for being stuck / stranded? View Comment
Currently zero power outages in Norwalk. So at least if you have to stay home you can go down to the workbench and start one of those spring projects you've been thinking about. I don't think they should ban pizza delivery though. View Comment
Well said. The only reason I brought up tax dollars is because it was one of the choices in the Poll that I thought was a little misleading. ( I don't like it, but it's better than a tax hike to keep it. ) Their health care package is excellent and the retirement fund seems to be guaranteed. It's all good for them but hurting the carriers and the people that sort the mail,.. the hourly employees. View Comment
Packages will continue to be delivered six days per week. Mail addressed to PO Boxes will continue to be delivered on Saturdays. Post Offices currently open on Saturdays will remain open on Saturdays.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations View Comment
Saturdays',..I'm all for it ! They could take away Wednesdays as well for residential delivery but that day flyers go out and that's their bread and butter. With a few 3 or 4 Monday holidays and no Saturday delivery, people waiting for checks should sign up for automatic deposit. I believe it's being phased in now for SSI and will be mandatory in a few years anyway. View Comment
I used to walk from Richards Ave where Old Mc Donald's Farm used to be to the Hospital on Maple Av from 76-77 about 6:30 in the morning, it was awful. I can't imagaine being handicapped out on U.S.1. 35 years and nothing has changed except the traffic. View Comment
If all the roads with double yellow lines had a sidewalk on just one side it would be a 1000% improvement. Doesn't the State have some responsibility in this? It makes me want to scream when there is a motorized wheelchair or handicap scooter out in the road, especially where there isn't a fog line / breakdown lane. The photo above says it all about half of the places there should be sidewalks and look, utility poles! Ridiculous. View Comment
If the former reporter for The Norwalk Daily Voice, Nancy Guenther Chapman is standing close enough to record the conversation, wasn't she also close enough to hear the conversation? What makes it private if you are in the midst of others?
A public official in a public building wants to say something not ment for my ears, either ask me leave or take your conversation somewhere else, oehrwise it's not private. View Comment
Common abrev. for Health and Human Services.
I always have thought Head Start makes a difference also. For small fish in a small pond. The playing field changes when small fish have to mainstream into a broader world of academia. If nothing else they would be worse off without head start. Like most all children there comes a time when parents can no longer help with homework and I have the feeling it comes very early for the once small fish. So in essence it is a failure because follow-through isn't able or sometime not even there. View Comment
Does the Town of Stamford contribute money to NEON? If so how much? Did Norwalk ever find the 400,000.00 that was misappropriated by NEON? Where is Joe Mann today? Is this Rev. Mann's husband?
There must be a reason that Norwalk only wants to pony-up the roughly 14% it's offering. What was there before there ever was a NEON?
If people want their kids to attend " camp " daycare in Norwalk this summer, question NEON about why they are running a program in Waterbury,..use that money. View Comment
On Dec. 21, 2001, he was convicted of second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery and "sale of hallucinogenic/narcotic." He was also guilty of a misdemeanor, use of a motor vehicle without permission. He was sentenced to Five years in jail. That sentence was suspended after two years, and he was given three years of probation.
Alston had a record in Fairfield: On Oct. 3, 2004, he was convicted of first-degree robbery, deadly weapon, criminal possession of a firearm/defensive weapon and first-degree larceny. He was sentenced to Eight years in jail.
Alston was a felon with a record at Stamford Superior Court. On Jan 7, 2005, he was convicted of "sale of certain illegal drugs" and first-degree violation of probation/failure to appear. He was sentenced to Seven years in jail.
It appears as though, if he served his just one full term he'd never would have been there to be shot in the summer of 11.
I hope this comes to fruition for you. It could easily add an hour of productivity to your day, giving you more time with your family when you finally arrive home. 80,000 passengers a day, with something better to do than read yesterday's news or gaze out the windows is brilliant. The 100's of new cars should already be outfitted with wi-fi. Give state Rep. Gail Lavielle the encouragement to move on with the Bill. View Comment
