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.

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.

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.

Priorities challenged

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.

Cultured meat research support

I was excited to learn Singapore is funding cultured-meat research in a robust manner. For readers who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals.

Connecticut, the land of steady habits

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.

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.
