The writer of this article should make a correction...only the first two on the list of 7 possiblyRead More contaminated fruits are organic. Organic produce usually has the PLU starting with the number 9. All the others listed as Orchard Perfect fruits are not organic. Orchard Perfect is just a brand and is not organic.

Actually Bobbie tell the whole story, all the studies have shown that there is statistically noRead More difference in the rate of suicide between states that have strong gun laws and those that don't. Conclusion: people who want to commit suicide find other means when guns aren't available. Further conclusion; restricting access to guns has no effect on the rate of suicide. The study that purportedly showed a correlation between gun ownership and an increased chance in being shot, was refuted and shown to be so fundamentally flawed that even the author admitted that claiming ownership of a firearm increased your chances of being shot is like claiming having insulin in the house increased your chances of becoming diabetic. Nice try though, but it illustrates the weakness of your argument that you have to conflate your statistics by including suicides etc and changing the argument from homicide to "gun deaths". Bloomberg did the same thing, including the Boston bomber as a victim of "gun violence" in spite of the fact that he'd been shot by the police and the cause of death was being run over by his brother. Keep on trying, you are only reinforcing the weakness of your stance.
Bobbie July 23, 2014 at 12:43 pm
Nice try, Ed. You offer nothing but your opinions. and they do not change the facts.

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.

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.

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.

@Gus, counties don't actually mean anything in CT, just geographic borders. Bridgeport is as much ofRead More a money suck as any city in the state, and that's in FFC. There's plenty of affluent communities in New Haven, Hartford, Litchfield counties (and elsewhere) that pay their fair share. Fairfield County does pay a proportionally high amount of taxes, but that is in a select few towns - definitely not northern or eastern FFC, which is more in line with other parts of the state.
