Reallocate subsidies

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. For readers who aren’t familiar with the term, cultured meat is grown from cells, without killing.

Kudos for Community Kitchen

Not all heroes wear capes. Granby Community Fund is very aware that community agencies, staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly to meet the needs of the Granby community during this time.

Thanks for supporting Lions

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.

Granby Living Calendar

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.

Be visible, be safe

An upside of the pandemic is that more of us are getting outside for some exercise. Roadside walkers, runners and bikers are far more common than a year ago.

Government support needed

I was thrilled to learn cultured meat won regulatory approval in Singapore. This is a global first. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without killing animals.

Just wondering…

I no longer live in Granby, but was a resident for 62 years, and now live at McLeans. I just read the op-ed from Susan Patricelli Regan and letter from Bill Regan in the December issue.

Mutual respect needed

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.

Mutual respect and civility

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.
