  • Obama’s False Claims

    To the Editor:

    President Obama’s claims and rhetoric regarding the government’s partial shutdown is pure “Deception and Demagoguery” says Peter Morici, an economist and professor at the University of Maryland.

    The president has accused the House GOP majority of refusing to pay bills that Congress has racked up, and defying the outcome of the 2012 election.

  • A Huge Waste Of Taxpayer Money

    To the Editor:

    Queen St + Speed Bumps = huge waste of taxpayer money.

    The town should take the same approach to Queen St that they have taken for the road that we live on, which hasn’t cost the town a penny.  The speed limit on our road is 15 mph and no one breaks it.  Here’s the trick - our road hasn’t been resurfaced in 30 years.  Its full of cracks and potholes, the curbs are falling apart.  It is impossible to go over 15mph without ruining your car’s suspension.

  • Losing A Sense Of Transparency

    To the Editor:

    (The following letter, to the Fairfield Hills Authority, has been received for publication in The Newtown Bee.)


    Dear All,

    I have noticed, and recently mentioned, the FHA’s growing lack of lack of transparency.

  • E-Z Pass For Queen Street?

    To the Editor:

    Perhaps eliminating the humps and converting lower Queen Street into a toll road would reduce traffic sufficiently to satisfy residents, who naturally would have scanable resident ID cards, as has been suggested by a previous writer.

    For the rest of us E-ZPass toll collection readers and video cameras would allow passage.

    For those of you without E-ZPass you obviously don’t belong on this stretch of privileged, public-funded roadway.
