Just as commentary, I am providing a portion of a Jan. 12 article from CT Viewpoints, by Michael Gargano, on public education as he sees it on the U.S. front. On my part it is not meant to reflect Granby’s status, merely as a diverse perspective on the subject.
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.
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.
In my opinion, some folks in Granby are far more concerned with their image than with the reality. Wasting money on political signs and advertising, similar to the “my church’s steeple is higher so god loves my church more than yours” is not a harmonious way to live.
When it first appeared widely in print in the early 1800s, the term “The Land of Steady Habits” was associated with Connecticut’s ancient tradition of assuring political stability through repeatedly electing the same officials to high office.
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.
