Send all Republicans packing next November

Since Trump’s election, Connecticut Republican politicians have been largely silent, following along in conformity and compliance, asserting that what happens in D.C. doesn’t matter here. They now have shown their true colors by the...

Come to New London June 9, share stories on high drug costs

Protecting human rights shouldn't be controversial

People seem to be reacting to New London becoming a so-called sanctuary city as if we are seeking to turn ourselves into some sort of haven for crime. This proposal is seeking to close gaps in our laws that provide room for the unfair treatment...

Confused: Visiting Mystic Seaport or a hardware big-box?

As I was driving down Route 27 in Mystic a short time ago, I was taken aback thinking that the Stonington Planning and Zoning folks allowed a Home Depot to be built right in the middle of a historic section of town. Upon further inspection, I...

Trump’s detestable treatment of a hero

It cannot surprise anyone that a White House aide in the Trump administration could casually dismiss a dying senator's opinion with neither consequence nor condemnation from this president. Mere months ago, Huntsville, Alabama hosted one of...

East Lyme budget boo-boo
