Finally, someone has had the courage to write something positive about New London! On Aug. 23, on the front page of the Daybreak section, Rick Koster wrote a beautiful article, "The Whaling City Welcomes You," expounding the attributes of this small, unique coastal city. So many are want to point out the negatives that leave the impression that New London is home only to drug addict gangsters lurking behind every street corner waiting to prey on innocent victims.
As a retired teacher and long-time resident, I know this not to be true.
I have know of many success stories of former students who are now productive, contributing citizens of their communities.
I feel New London is now going through a renaissance that will put us back on the map as a destination point to travel to rather than to run from. This especially will ring true when the new magnet schools go into effect and hopefully will offer more opportunities for our young citizens and encourage newcomers to make New London their home of choice.
