Connecticut’s “Jabba the Hutt” administration

On May 11, the CT Mirror published an article by Mark Pazniokas entitled, “House extends emergency powers—but with added oversight”.

Cultured meat

I recently learned an Israeli company, Future Meat Technologies, has slashed production costs for cultured meat and hopes to bring it to the United States in the next year and a half. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughter.

Thanks from McLean

We are very thankful to the Granby Community Fund and the residents of Granby for their support of the McLean Meals on Wheels program. The Granby Community Fund solicits donations from Granby residents to then give as grants to local non-profits that serve residents of the Town of Granby.

It’s time to ban the intentional feeding of bears in Granby

I am writing in support of any ordinance that would allow the town to regulate the feeding of wildlife on private property. The town of Granby, as well as surrounding towns, continues to struggle with wildlife being habituated through the bear-feeding practices of private homeowners.
