I posted this on the Wallingford Patch about Drop Boxes for drugs. "I am watching local TV withRead More the Wallingford Town Council and the Mayor debating putting in a Drop Box. I did not know what a Drop Box is and I am finding out it is a place to leave medicine that is not used. Mayor Dickinson has excuses for everything. In the case of the Drop Boxes he either says he does not know, he talks to the police, anyone can put something in a Drop Box that might be dangerous, how much it would cost and more. The people that had questions said there is grant money for the boxes. The people question the council but one woman brought up the Mayor is the only one that answers the questions. I find the Mayor is like a bully. I do not see many issues on the Wallingford Patch about the way the town addresses issues. To me the issue is not Drop Boxes, it is how the Mayor takes over and answers all the questions. I have seen him at times being very rude to people and the council members say nothing. I cannot believe one man, Mayor Dickinson can be in office so long and not listen to people of Wallingford and still keep getting elected, something is not right."

JBrad By suicide I am saying I am against it but I don't want anyone being involved in helpingRead More killing someone else. The government is using Women's health for businesses to pay for abortion. This is a political issue. The government is not helping people with mental issues but they allow them to smoke pot and now Eric Holder wants to let drug addicts out of jail. CT is making a big deal about domestic violence but read the article about how it is not being funded enough here http://ctwatchdog.com/health/103-times-womens-pleas-for-help-went-unmet I cannot stop someone from doing what they want to do. Just like I cannot stop anyone from doing anything God is in charge and he gives us free will. I do feel sorry for this man. He had no support to stop him from doing what he did. The government supports only what it wants and it is helping decay human beings.

@bill; the solution to not losing your belongings is to invest in a long-term care policy. I startedRead More paying into it back in 1998 and my dad is currently using his now. As long as you meet one of 5 criteria that is needed, they pay for everything except cable until your policy is exhausted. that can give your family time to sell off your assets so you have that money to live on until you die. also, it's a good idea to consult with a geriatric lawyer and follow his advice.

Living on Earth theses days is a form of Spiritual Suicide- He didnt kill himself, he set himselfRead More free from the Morons that are beset opon us during the Apocalyptic New Millenium. He could be a Trend setter yes, thats true, but is life what it used to be? No its not. Be ready its Jacobs Ladder Boys and Girls-Be quick or be Deado-just like the Movie said. Zombies to the left, Vampires to the right, stuck in the middle may be ok as long as we keep laughing at the absurdity of Modern existance. Big respect brother, a Brave warrior never dies!

Any info on the caller?
chuck April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
It was John Rowland trying to draw some heat away from himself.

Sue if there was any information on the caller the media would have drawn the conclusion for us andRead More stated the caller had PTSD or mental problems if he/she had an American surname. Ft Hood shootings are perfect examples of how the media creates pictures for our thoughts on who is called a terrorist and who has PTSD even though THEY DID NOT SEE ONE MINUTE OF COMBAT.

FYI-the Mianus river bridge collapsed on O'Neill's watch - HE WAS THE WORST GOVERNOR MALE OR FEMALERead More (Weicker a very close second). O'Neill closed all the tolls because of the West Haven accident which dried up all the highway funding and never spent a penny on infrastructure before, during or after the collapse.
Igor March 25, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Closing the tolls was a dumb ass move. Every state around us has tolls, but Connecticut is soRead More wealthy we don't need any money. We'll just beat our tax payers to death.
Dave D March 27, 2014 at 08:36 am
Stay focused folks... Several troops consolidated dispatch to save money. Now the troops that wereRead More closed at night because troopers were out on patrol, will cost us more tax money so a trooper can stop patrolling and sit inside a nice warm barracks. Real smart move... NOT
