A broadband railroad is unlikely to be built throughout Connecticut anytime soon. The Central Pacific Railroad laid 10 miles of track in a single record day in 1869. By comparison, it can still take up to 90 days for a 21st century company to...
On April 21, I attended the Montville School Board meeting at our High School. Unfortunately, I came away with certain misgivings. Every item voted on was approved with little or no discussion as though it was a race to conclude the meeting as fast...
As both a resident and a registered Republican in the town of Stonington, I am impressed by the cooperative spirit demonstrated within the budget process this year. I urge voters to pass the budget May 12.

It must be a huge let down for voters, especially American women, servicemen and women, and those who have trusted and practically worshiped Hillary Clinton and President Obama to see that the Democrats have chosen her to be President of the U.S.
While appearing on a recent public TV show I asked the current New London Superintendent of School Dr. Manuel Rivera exactly how much it cost to educate a child from kindergarten through Grade 12. He did say it is at least $250,000 without any extra...
A few decades ago former Rep. Sam Gejdenson and former U. S. Senator Chris Dodd fought mightily on behalf of the Mashantuckets and the Mohegans to help them gain federal recognition. They succeeded, enabling the tribes to build gigantic casinos.

The economic incentives in this country flash neon lights to most of the world. The one thing that can dim them is defeatism. The rioters in Baltimore and others who defend their activities have mastered the defeatist language.
Winning as a third-party candidate, rather than the endorsed Democrat, would be a more difficult challenge for the incumbent New London mayor. But it would keep him in the race for a general election that will attract more voters than the primary, a...
