  • Qualifications Should Matter

    To the Editor: My name is Joe Egan, and I am asking for your vote on November 4th to be reelected as Judge of Probate for Northern Fairfield County. The position of Probate Judge is more important than most of our citizens might think in that Probate Judge...

  • 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.

  • A State In Economic Decline

    To the Editor: There are currently 389 homes for sale in Newtown.  When we bought our home 12 years ago there were hardly any available. The capture of the Governorship in 2010 by Dan Malloy, coupled with the continuous control of the state house and ...

  • 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’
