    Occupation: I’m an evidence-based chiropractor specializing in nutrition, sports medicine, and muscular anomalies. I even treat cellulite. Everything I do, there’s research to back it up. What I do is massage, a lot of muscle lengthening, and tension reducing techniques, rather than adjustments. My office is in the old Victorian house on the corner of The Boulevard. I work part-time at Extreme Fitness Martial Arts in Plaza South, too.

    The Legislative Council voted 17-0 January 4 to approve a resolution “censoring” First Selectman Rod Mac Kenzie for violating the town charter by overspending certain line item accounts without having authorization.
