Letters to the Editor

  • Farewell To Connecticut

    (The Bee has received the following poem/letter for publication.)  You’re beautiful, Connecticut, your pastures verdant green. Your hillsides splashed with color, your shoreline so serene.

    To the Editor: The “vote” in Connecticut this Election Day, represents more than a choice between parties, policies, and/or personalities.  The focus most is guns, rifles and ammo. Those who stand tall living in a state with bipartisan gun control laws, are on one side of the issue.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor: As someone who has known and worked alongside with Jen Aguilar for a number of years, I feel compelled to address something I’ve seen floating about as the campaigns move towards November.  It has to do wit...

  • The Library Friends Say ‘Yes’
