Excellant post there J.A.T. I doubt you will vere get a response from him. There is no excuse.

Chris, its not just this self-serving hypocrite that needs to go it's the likes of Murphy andRead MoreBlumie as well. Murphy is now calling for an increase if Fed. gas tax to support funds ear-marked for highway improvements. Funny thing though, the funds already generated via this Fed tax have been continually used by the administration for other programs, even though our leaders have constently said these funds would never be used or siphoned off to cover other federal programs. They rob Peter to pay Paul but never put anything back. EVERYONE MUST GO.

Dear Louis, this is Paula, your cousin in California. I am so sorry for your loss and to hearRead Morethis sad news. Your brother Art was such a good man. He was not only a leader in the East Haven community but also within the DeSorbo family. I will always be grateful for the compassion and kindness he extended to my grandparents Ralph & Helen and to my mom Dolores. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Paula LaRue Mugavero

Thanks Dan. This leads me to believe the Chief has a problem enforcing the law.
maria tonelli July 16, 2014 at 09:29 AM
Darlene, you are so right. Residents should obtain their parking?beach sticker from town hallRead Moreafter showing their proof of residency/registration and then the registration# should be placed/written on the sticker. Rumor has it that stickers are being passed around town by various individuals to anyone asking for them. This would at least eliminate part of the problem and is an effective preventative measure. Less cars to deal with, tow, etc.

Mac, whomever you are, I won't waste my time responding to you nonsense.
Richard Poulton July 23, 2014 at 04:19 PM
Magdalen, just one quick question. As we all know and are proud of for few have such, is the right Read Moreto express our views, be it political or otherwise. I respect that as I am sure you do as well. But why is it OK for you to post your views as to certain media stations, their views, commentators, etc.. but when someone else does the same expressing their views you go all huffy and call what they say is nonsense? Why is that?
Peter T. Cianelli July 23, 2014 at 08:25 PM
Magdalen.......THESE ARE THE FACTS ... READ THEM AND WEEP. With 50 straight quarters of wins in its Read Morerearview mirror, Fox News shows no signs of losing its dominant edge. In total viewers, Fox beat CNN and MSNBC combined in both total day and primetime. While Fox is the #6 most-watched cable channel overall in primetime and #7 in total day, CNN and MSNBC are down in the high twenties/low thirties. On top of that, in Q2 Fox claimed the top 14 spots in the list of most-watched cable news shows in total viewers and nine of the top 10 most-watched shows in the 25-54 demo. The O’Reilly Factor remained the top show for Fox (and cable news as a whole), averaging 2.361M total viewers and 365K in the demo at 8 p.m. The Kelly File, which has been beating Bill O’Reilly’s show in the 9 p.m. slot on occasion, came in second overall, averaging 1.998M total viewers and 332K total.

Understood Flowers but this is the reason I bought this one (and two more) because they had aRead Morelifeti me warranty and if they failed I could deal with the store that sold it to me for refund or replacement. The point is Goody's sold the product and had no intention of honoring the lifetime warranty. I hope they continue to be the landmark they have become. For me, this is a major blow to their customer service rating. Very simple, honor what you sell.

The mayor really doesn't have much to do with it. You should be thanking the Vietnam VeteransRead MoreChapte r 484 for all the fund raising and coordinating with various town departments.

Joanne: I agree, it was a great night for all but THANKS should to to these guys: Good Job Vietnam Read MoreVets Chpt 484. Was a well put-together day and the fireworks were awesome. A lot of work, fundraising & co-ordinaton goes into event. Y'all get better at it every year.

Ed, when it takes two weeks to get the ok to put brake pads on a police vehicle, this is not aRead Moresurpr ise.... Pre-Capone, the police fleet and most town equipment was in shambles. Starting to look that way again.
Rosie June 26, 2014 at 02:24 PM
Our baseball/softball fields are a mess, especially at the PIT. It is embarrassing, and plainRead Morewrong . When they get cut at all, and it's not too often, they sometimes only cut one field out of four. What a joke.
Gala Dali June 30, 2014 at 06:56 PM
No wonder the island on Russo Avenue looks like it does. Not good equipment. What a shame. WhatRead Morei s wrong with this administration??
George Kenyon June 25, 2014 at 02:30 PM
Ed, Its easy to get a $450,000.00 "surplus" when you underbudget everything. As withRead Moreevery budget, their will be countless transfers to conver known or anticipated costs. I still contend, the Town should have a parking authority to enforce issues such as this, snow parking ban enforcement etc. In my opion it would pay for itself. Right now, it is the truth, the town is seriously understaffed, and yes, it should be made public. To many things and deals are kept behind closed doors and the taxpayers are completely in the dark. We have a major issue on Sundays in particular with ATV's, but just this past week, on Sunday, there were 3 cars on the road. WE have Non- unionn ex officers working patrol. This is not acceptable. NOR good whos going to get sued should something happens? The manpower is still minimal on the weekeds when two slum holes of bars on Main Street are packed, well beyond legal capacity. One incident after another, our officers are seriously in harms way. He still doesn't have any extra cars out, as was past practice..

Susan Kazanjian...... sorry I took so long to get back to you ..... there was blasting going on atRead Moret he Irish Club Field .... today the town Eng. & Zoning Officer handed them a stop word order
Susan Kazanjian July 10, 2014 at 05:18 PM
Thank you Peter T Cianelli. I actually drove down Venice Place yesterday afternoon, all the way to Read Morethe Irish Club and saw piles of rubble and the heavy machinery. That's exactly where is was coming from. Hooray for you and the town Eng.& Zoning Officer.
Susan Kazanjian July 10, 2014 at 05:19 PM
Thank you
Richard Poulton June 24, 2014 at 09:12 AM
Nice try George, but do you actually think Albis will conduct any sort of investigation as to theRead Moreex pendature of these funds to see if any hanky panky has occured? Maybe you should address your concerns to the State Attorney General. If funds came from any federal grants to the state, any mis-use is a federal violation and maybe have the office of US Attorney get involved. Got to start someplace, right. Keep digging, and dig deep.
George Kenyon June 27, 2014 at 03:11 PM
You called it on this one, Rich. They're all quick to press release their "feats" butRead Morefol low-up on efficiancy or proper use seems to be a foreign concept.....And they wonder why we're in growing financial hole.
George Kenyon July 07, 2014 at 05:40 PM
Still no response? I mean everyone is quick to post, publish, press release and tweet theirRead Moreaccomp lisments. Yet no oversight as to if this money is even used, let alone for what its supposed to. Maybe this is why the state can't balance a budget, they throw money everywhere and have no clue whats going on or how its being used. Ignorance like this shows the incompetence we have for representation.
Gala Dali June 24, 2014 at 01:13 PM
Yes, Sally that is a problem. They will need to be maintained which is unlikely. Someone donatedRead Moret heir time I think it was a year or two ago to plant flowers in the planters and they were never taken care of. We have a similar problem on my side of town. The island on Russo Avenue is not taken care of. Grass is high, curb around island broken. Have to call public works all the time to get it mowed and then it is done in a hap hazard way. Beautiful cherry blossom trees on island not taken care of. A shame.
Sam Giglio June 24, 2014 at 03:29 PM
Thanks to the Garden Club we may get our Center looking a little better.

I say create a parking authority, one or 2 positions to do town wide enforcement. It seems like itRead Morew ould fund itself. It will also take the burden off an already over burdened police dept and lets them deal with more pressing law enforcement issues.
