In Woodbury it is the stress of the property values decreasing and the ever increasing of taxes.Read More People can not afford their taxes now. This years shell game, the First Selectman and the BOF Chair want everyone to believe that only 40% of the taxpayers taxes are going up. 40% increase in stress in those people's lives. Don't worry though the First Selectman and the BOF Chair have stated that no ones taxes are going up. ??? It's called talking out of both sides of your mouth. Tell the voters whatever they want to hear to get the budget passed. The voters have another chance to VOTE DOWN the proposed budget on the 23rd. Remember VOTE YES FOR HIGHER TAXES.

Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experiencedRead More it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks

My experience is not anecdotal, that is usually a one time situation. My experience spans 25 years,Read More in different industries, and being part of hiring thousands of people at all different job levels. I am sure there are companies who have discriminated but they are few and far between. With all the women in HR positions all over this country, if this was news, it would have been made news long ago. Plus, people are litigious and companies are not going to risk that. In addition, since I have been privy to employee lawsuits, I never saw ONE that had to do with pay disparity with men. Sometimes they had to do with sexual harrassment, however the biggest number, according to statistics, is retaliation for being on leave, and that has nothing to do with gender.

Lisa Burke Wright July 22, 2014 at 11:23 am
It's quite disconcerting that many are so distrusting of these children, based only on their ethnicRead More background. You can't take possessions, money, and "stuff" with you when you go, but I personally believe a compassionate heart will last long after you pass. I'd rather live in what you might consider a naive fashion and die knowing that when I looked in the eyes of another, I saw that they too, were human. When others call me a "bleeding heart," I smile. I consider it a compliment and hold it dear. We are all trying to survive, and I can see why some feel certain groups are threatening their way of life. But, if you have love in your heart, no one can take that away from you - and it's the only thing you can truly own. I am sure that your own loved ones have caused more stress and strife in your daily life than any individual from South America ever will. And before you assume what my opinion is on the issue, I'd like to remind you that I see merit on both sides. My only problem is the hatred toward these immigrants. The hatred won't solve anything, only make it worse.

@Paul Improta. Well, where to begin? Your post was certainly wide-ranging, and I thank you for notRead More resorting to insults, or worse: caps-lock. Your post also showed how unenlightened and worse, indifferent, you are to the human condition. You confidently opine on the legitimacy of love between lovers who are of the same sex, but what do you know? Certainly nothing from acquaintance; that’s plain. If you had seen what I’ve seen, and known whom I’ve known, you’d be ashamed of yourself for uttering such nonsense as, “Where heterosexuals sex lives are an expression of relationship, gay relationships are an expression of their sexual preferences.” You have absolutely no basis for that assertion but your own prejudice and presuppositions. That’s merely ignorance. What would be stupid, though, is for you to refuse to question those falsehoods. If, however, you should choose to remain willfully ignorant… well, I pity you, because whilst a kiss will remain a kiss, lovers will woo, and time goes by, your appreciation of the futility of your struggle against reality will come too late for you. And to that point: I won’t even address the “militarist agenda” nonsense you spout because it’s obviously your expression of sour grapes, whether you realize that yet or never will. No benefit in disputing a factual point that’s been won already.

Like many things in this Obama administration, the idea of doing nothing appeals . Then they blameRead More Congress and or Bush. We've seen it on the border, we see it in Ukraine, in Israel, In Iran, in Syria, and for many doing nothing is great. On some level I prefer to do nothing in many of these situations, but doing nothing has it's own set of consequences. Bush did too much. Obama does too little. One annoying difference is that Bush took the heat, while Obama blames eveyone else or pretends that the situations are all republican fake scandals. The border crisis they will try to point out as a law Bush signed in 2008. And they are right, but certainly doesnt tell the whole story as 3,000 kids came over on average in first 4 years of law. Obama granted amnesty (GOP said huge mistake while dems laughed at that notion as being a magnet-- gop was right) and now we see 30,000, 75,000 and projected 150,000 next year. Crisis now requires billions also someting that dems always say "doesnt cost us" . Now they are employing age old tactic of if you dont welcome this situation you are heartless. Odd--the ones taking care of the kids are the churches that the left mocks and ridiculues.

Well as I live near two homes that collect trash and broken down cars it gets to me when I haveRead More guests coming to my home. Every other home in my area is well kept except for these two. Might I add a 3rd one that isn't as bad but the same bag of trash has been in the yard for several years, yes years! Why is it that one needs 8 cars that don't run and filled with trash? Why is it that another needs to fill their yard with trash, when I say trash, I mean trash! Cardboard boxes, bags of garbage, broken items they found along side the road and piles of cans and bottles. This brings property values around those houses down! There's so many homes on my road and streets off of mine that have been for sale but haven't sold. Meanwhile other homes in Oxford that are not directly in the path of these blighted homes that have sold. I strongly believe this may be a reason why they are still on the market, you must pass these homes to get to our neighborhood so there's no escaping it. There's an increased rodent population in this area, I've even come across a rat running across the road while driving pass one of these homes. I don't have a problem with the way you live inside your home, but for the sake of your neighbors please try to keep the yard free of debris. I know there's people that do not agree with me on this but the residents in my neighborhood do and we are the ones that have to live around this blight. There's organizations that will come pick up stuff for free, you can even write it off on your taxes as a donation! I do not agree with paying more town employees to do this anti-blight work when I'm sure there's already someone that can handle the job! There's several towns that have a anti-blight law on their books, why don't we? We used to have someone that tried enforcing the blight policy, I do not remember his name as it was about 15 years ago.
