The Least Favorite Option

 July 30, 2014

One would have to assume that the Maturo administration is forging ahead with plans to convert the old high school to senior housing. This was the least favorite option presented to voters in a referendum. Could it be that I'm the only person in East Haven who...

One of the Best

 July 30, 2014

Mr. Arthur DeSorbo was one of the greatest persons I ever met. You never heard or read anything bad about him.

Leaves Present Problem

 July 30, 2014

Over the years I have always had a struggle with the leaves in the fall and spring, too. I have large oak trees around my yard that always presented a problem. You have to bag the leaves in brown paper bags or the Public Works Department will not take them. In...

Greeting Visitors

 July 30, 2014

I would like to thank the East Haven Garden Club for allowing me to participate in their latest beautification event in which we planted several new roses around the fountain on Main Street and also planted two new boxwoods in planters that will greet all those...

A Former Place of Serenity

 July 30, 2014

As an East Haven resident for more than 50 years, my favorite place to be is the Town Beach. It was at one time a place of serenity. Of course it is no longer the same. I would be able to go to the beach stay a while, leave, then drive back to spend time to...

The Town Beach Problem

 July 23, 2014

This letter is written as a means to express my concerns and to hopefully make some suggestions that may help the town deal with our problem at the Town Beach. I believe that the town must receive some amount of compensation for non-residents who want to use our...

Making It What It Is

 July 23, 2014

Thanks go to big-hearted shoreline businesses for making It Is What It Is all that it is!

Truly a Great Feeling

 July 9, 2014

The 5th-grade D.A.R.E. graduations in May at the East Haven Academy and at D.H. Ferrara School went very well. There were about 135 graduates total from both schools, and I had the honor and pleasure of teaching them the D.A.R.E. Program, which covers some very...

Thanks for the Support

 July 9, 2014

I would like to thank Anthony Moscato, Louis Pacelli, and the many shoppers of T&J's Grocery for making the June 7 food drive hosted by T&J's Grocery to benefit the East Haven Food Pantry a success.

Start Leading

 July 2, 2014

The Board of Finance (BOF) met on June 18. Mayor Joseph Maturo has attended two meetings since taking office, so one must surmise that there was one item very important to the mayor's agenda. That important item was the vote to bond $1.25 million for the single...

Will Not Sit Idly By

 June 25, 2014

The first role of any government is to ensure the security and safety of its residents.

The Power to Nurture

 June 18, 2014

As a parent of two elementary-aged children in North Haven, I'm writing to ask for support for arts education. Last night, my nine-year-old son asked I if he could do a "show" for us on his recorder. You can imagine the smiles on our faces as he played six songs...

Far Greater than Expected

 June 18, 2014

The staff and faculty of East Haven schools and many town business owners deserve to be acknowledged for their kindness, compassion, and generosity in helping a town resident in need. Recently, my niece, Gina, who holds a part-time position in the school...

Return the Money

 June 11, 2014

Originally, I was going to write this letter just in reference to Mayor Joe Maturo's $10,000 pay increase. That in itself is an outrage. Mayor April Capone refused her $10,000 due to her respect for the taxpayers. Obviously Mayor Maturo didn't feel that way. I...

Officers Have Enough to Worry About

 June 11, 2014

We all know the Department of Justice has come in and is working with the East Haven Police. We understand the value of thorough, honest, unbiased police work. Can we agree that these are common sense statements? What if there were things that could be done to...

'Wow' is the Word

 June 11, 2014

I've been an East Haven resident for 30 years. We are a town that was built with lots of senior people. Now, my appeal is for their support of our Senior Center.

The Need Goes On

 May 21, 2014

On May 10, East Haven postal workers proved once again their support of East Haven residents. A food drive was held to support the East Haven Food Pantry, and food was picked up door to door by our postal carriers and delivered to the pantry. There it was...

A Traffic Nightmare

 May 21, 2014

I attended the May 7 Planning & Zoning Commission public hearing. Discussed was a special exemption application for the Il Salice banquet hall on Roma Street to be leased to a church. I would like to commend the board and speakers both for and against the...

Help the Struggling Residents

 May 14, 2014

As a lifelong East Haven resident, I was very upset to see that our mayor, Joe Maturo, is accepting a $10,000 raise. What exactly has he done to deserve this increase? Nothing I have seen in East Haven would warrant such an increase. And at the same time, he...

An Amazing Community of Faith

 May 14, 2014

As I conclude my tenure as pastor of Our Lady of Pompeii Church, I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to so many people within our community who have enriched my ministry and have done so much to share the goodness of God with others.

Grateful for the Support

 May 7, 2014

I would like to give a big thanks to all the following people, schools, businesses, and organizations who have generously supported the East Haven D.A.R.E. Program by participating in the 5th-grade D.A.R.E. graduation shirt sponsorship that was available during...
