This is the Opposite

 April 23, 2014

I received a flyer last spring telling me I should vote down the town and education budgets because the town had surplus funds from the previous year's budgets. I was so perplexed that I read through the flyer again, but the contention was clear. Surpluses were...

Rather Say 'Thank You'

 April 23, 2014

"Surplus" is a buzzword at budget time that, for reasons I have trouble understanding, has a negative connotation attached. The opposite of a surplus is a deficit. To me, it seems like we would have real problems if there were deficits.

Not Something to Shortchange

 April 23, 2014

The Board of Education (BOE) is charged with several tasks. One is to negotiate the employment contracts with our school district labor groups. Since 80 percent of the cost of educating our children is employee-related, these negotiations are extremely...

A Lot of Important Information

 April 16, 2014

Recently, my 16-year-old daughter and I had the privilege of participating in the Automotive Know-How Class sponsored by Clinton Youth & Family Services and hosted by Cardone and Daughter. The event was extremely informative and well organized. Although my...

Town's Culture Enriched by Schools

 April 9, 2014

Taxpayers often ask the question: "If I don't have kids in the schools, what do I get?" Understandably, this is an important question to residents without children attending the public school system. As a taxpayer included in this group, and a product of Clinton...

Cafeteria Often Overlooked

 April 9, 2014

Yes, it's that time again-budget season, or as I like to call it, the season of dread. You know what I mean; the name-calling, the bickering. For my part, I am going to try and set a better tone this budget season. So here goes nothing.

An Investment in the Scouts

 April 9, 2014

Boy Scout Troop 7 held a very successful Pasta Dinner on March 15. We could not have made it a success without the help of local businesses.
For donating food, we would like to thank Big Y, Ceniccola's Italian Deli, Chabaso...

Better Ideas for the Beach

 March 26, 2014

I've been reading with great interest the proposal for a dog park at the Clinton Town Beach and must say that this proposal raises concerns. To consider requesting approximately $17,000 for a dog park when there are other beautification items that could be...

Lifelong Path of Sharing

 March 12, 2014

Feb. 28 was supposed to be a normal Friday with only one thing to do. Little did I know that the one thing would turn that Friday into a memorable one. So what was that one thing I had to do?
I had been invited to the Joel...

Shell-Shocked

 February 26, 2014

My name is Max Skidmore and I'm in the 5th grade. I'm in Invention Convention at Pierson School.
One day I came up with an idea called the glass-bottom paddleboard. I needed plexiglass from Clinton Glass to make my invention.

A Few Cautionary Notes

 February 26, 2014

Regarding the Feb. 20 story "Clinton Shellfish Barn Still Needs Funding" about the Clinton Shellfish Commission's project to build a barn at the Clinton Town Beach, I'd like to weigh in with a few cautionary notes.
First and...

A Better Place for All

 February 12, 2014

On early Sunday morning, Jan. 26, there wasn't a car to be found on Main Street. If one turned and drove behind the Clinton Town Hall, you would have found lots and lots of cars. What were they doing at Town Hall? It was the last Sunday in January and the...
