How about reporting on how much it's costing American taxpayers for obama's trips to attend democratRead More fund-raisers! The $179,750 hourly Air Force One cost covers everything from fuel, maintenance, engineering support, food and lodging for the pilots and crew and other operational costs that include the use of special communications equipment. In addition to the hourly cost of Air Force One, taxpayers cover salaries for Secret Service staff and other assistants who travel with the president. When there are more than 75 people traveling with the president, the federal government will use a second passenger airplane to accommodate them. Look at all the personal trips/vacations this president has taken on Air Force One paid for by our taxes.

Eva, if you think Rt67 is jammed now wait till this project is built as there will be only one roadRead More to access the site RT 67. We will need to update our infrastructure to accommodate the new residents. We will need a new center school, but that has been neglected by all the past administrations and bad planning on Oxford's part. As far as a library why would we want to build one on the most dangerous road in tow and only a short distance from Seymour's full service Library. Ours belongs on Great Oak rd. near our schools. Besides Library's are becoming a thing of the past with the new technologies we have just in our phones. A better carrot would be a community center at that sight. Our police force will become store security officers as their main function just as the Orange police department is. Housing does not belong in a commercial zone and that in is self will cause a litany of conflicts between the residents and the business operations. AS far as filling the stores with tenants take a ride down RT 25 between Newtown and Trumbull and you will see many empty stores and offices what you will not see are homes built inside the commercial developments. When I first saw the project I asked where in CT. I could visit a development with housing built in with the store. I was asked if I would be going to Philadelphia any time soon? This project is only a win / win for Haynes not Oxford. If you are too lazy to drive to a supermarket down the road they do deliver it's call peapod.
Natalie Desota July 25, 2014 at 06:59 am
As a resident of Oxford, I am not "hungry" for the proposed supermarket. My husband and IRead More moved here to get away from the ruined, overdeveloped nature of New York. People who have lived here in the country don't realize that developers want to replace green pastures for green in their pockets. We don't want to ruin our bucolic atmosphere with strip malls and apartments.
Patp July 25, 2014 at 09:39 am
I am not "weary of the trek" to Seymour for groceries. I get in my car and drive 10Read More minutes to Stop and Shop in Seymour. Or, I could drive 15 minutes to Southbury for a Stop and Shop, Shop Rite or LaBonnes. Price Chopper? ho-hum. How about a Trader Joe's or something like that. As far as Price Chopper having a Starbucks in it, who cares? There is one a mile down the road. Pharmacies? Common, there are two chain store pharmacies on 67 in Seymour and an independently owned one in Oxford. Southbury has it's share of pharmacies also. The entire thing is a farce. The only ones that gets to benefit from this are the Haynes family and the Oxford Tax Collector's Office. . I just can't wait for there to be 150 more dwelling units on Rte. 67. That should make what is already an overused road an absolute nightmare.

To everyone faulting DI for not commenting on this, I completely disagree with you. They made aRead More simple statement saying that there was more to the story than what we are being told. That's all they need to do. Unlike this attention grabbing entitled mother and her uncontrollable kid, DI is taking the dignified approach by not partaking in a public display of he said/ she said. Good for them. Take another look at the tv report and tell me that kid is not out of control. He is running all over the place with the reporter's microphone, which he has no business even touching. Clearly the mother has not taught him the word "no". Better that he learn at 4 that the world will not tolerate his obnoxious behavior. God bless his teachers. :)

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.

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
This guy deserves his bad reputation.
