Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal should support reallocating the billions of dollars a year in subsidies the federal government gives to animal-exploitation industries to cultured-meat research.

On behalf of the Granby Lions Club, a huge THANK YOU to all who supported the Lions’ annual Christmas tree sale. It was one of the most successful ever, and all the money donated is put directly back into our community, notably college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
The Granby Living Facebook group is a proud supporter of the Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen and the Granby Food Bank. Both charities perform a vital role in our community and sadly this year has meant an increase in those that need help.
My wife and I are proud Democrats and, each election season, we display signs on our lawn supporting our party’s nominees. Four years ago, our lawn signs in support of Hillary Clinton were stolen three times.
My wife Marty and I have had the good fortune to live in Granby since 1972. We were attracted to Granby because of its wide-open spaces, small town community and a place where we wanted to raise our children.
