Democratic candidates

I am excited to endorse the incredible slate of candidates from the Granby Democratic Town Committee for municipal elections on Nov. 2. We have EIGHT candidates running in competitive races for three boards: Board of Selectmen, Board of Education and Board of Finance.

Towards a slaughter-free America

I remember my first chicken harvest, as it was euphemistically called. It was 1999 and I was 12. In a video of the event, you can see me in my denim work jacket, gripping my neck in vicarious horror.

In June, Granby lost a town treasure.

Carol Laun was the curator and archivist for the Salmon Brook Historical Society, a volunteer position she had held for decades. Although Carol was from Milwaukee, she took on the role of preserving Granby’s history as if her roots were here.

Cultured Meat

I was excited to learn an Israeli company, Future Meat Technologies, recently opened the world’s first cultured-meat factory. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals.

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.

Bear Wars

Once again, I am weighing in on the bear situation in Granby. Wild animals are interested in three things: food, sex, and self-preservation.

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.

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”. While a majority of “Demoncrats” in both the House and Senate create and manipulate bills and budgets and the Capitol remains closed to the public, the same body of unilateral capacity extended Governor Lamont’s Executive emergency powers until July 20, albeit with some nominal oversight.

Bear attack

On April 26, our 78-pound family dog was viciously attacked by a bear that entered our yard over a 5-foot chain-link fence. This happened in broad daylight (11 a.m.).
