Town's Cultural Riches

 July 30, 2014

Guilford Art Center would like to thank the Town of Guilford, its citizens and businesses, and our many volunteers who helped to make the 57th annual Craft Expo on the Guilford Green another wonderful event. This year's Craft Expo benefitted...

Owes an Apology

 July 30, 2014

Once again I find myself writing a letter in wonder of what has happened to the civility in Guilford. I think we as a town are better than what we have recently shown in matters pertaining to the Planning & Zoning Commission.

When People Come Together

 July 23, 2014

Thanks go to the Park & Recreation Department, Guilford Art Center, the School of Rock, and local businesses and residents who supported This is Guilford on Saturday, July 12. Their attendance, prize donations, and participation in our mobile scavenger hunt...

Professionalism that is Truly Inspiring

 July 23, 2014

Another reason to appreciate living in our Town of Guilford is the wonderful service provided by Guilford Youth & Family Services (GY&FS). Unless you are part of the organization, one of the many families who receive direct services, or involved in the...

Takes Bullying into the Public Square

 July 16, 2014

I am deeply troubled by the recent incidents of propagandizing and allegations of "gang stalking" targeted at Tony Fappiano. I have known Tony for the 37 years I have lived in Guilford and I know him to be an individual of great integrity with unquestionable...

A Better Way to Celebrate

 July 16, 2014

I have noticed over the years that there are many Mylar balloons displayed for Guilford High School (GHS) graduates. These balloons are harmful and sometimes deadly to many types of wildlife. Birds, for example, can eat the ribbon from the balloons, but they are...

What Will Happen?

 July 9, 2014

I write this after tax bills have been received and monthly mortgage payments have increased. In 2013, we saw an approximately six percent increase in our taxes, while this year our mill rate has increased by 18.9 percent.

One Bakery, Many Thanks

 July 9, 2014

Two organizations and one big thank you: The thank you is to Hen & Heifer owners Jeffrey Capone and Whang Su. Rather than a tip jar, an antique vase sits on the counter inviting customers to give a donation to Guilford Interfaith Ministries's Shattuck Fund.

A Great DAY for Guilford Talent

 July 9, 2014

Guilford's Got Talent (GGT) IV was held on June 29 with 17 acts performing on the Guilford green. Following the contestants' performances, GGT 2011 winner Cadence Richmond performed. All of the youth who participated in GGT did an amazing job! First-place winner...

Share the Burden

 July 2, 2014

So what is up with the secret public meetings? Tacking a note on a board in Town Hall is hardly public notice. It might be legal, but is it ethical? [First Selectman Joseph] Mazza seems intent on balancing the budget by developing the Route 1 corridor. At the...


 July 2, 2014

The wind last Saturday was blowing offshore. I gleefully hiked out over the starboard side of my Vanguard 15-foot sailboat as it skittered along Long Island Sound on a strong gust of wind. My glee was short-lived as the wind pushed the boat beyond the brink. I...

Pay Very Close Attention

 June 25, 2014

It was with considerable interest that I watched Sean Scanlon's acceptance speech on GCTV following the recent Democratic convention to nominate a candidate to run in the 98th House district. Mr. Scanlon will be running against Republican nominee Cynthia...

It Takes a Village

 June 25, 2014

I want very much to thank the person who found my car key and who then turned it in to Big Y because it had the store's tag on the chain (smart move), and Big Y in turn gave it to the Police Department, which then notified me that they had it. So thanks to all...

Great Support for the Arts

 June 25, 2014

Guilford Art Center would like to thank everyone who helped make our Shoreline House Tour on June 7 a great success. This wonderful event offered a "peek behind the shutters" of unique and artful homes in three beautiful shoreline towns-Branford, Guilford, and...

Controversial Property Tax Bill

 June 25, 2014

Earlier this month, a newspaper column of mine was published titled "The Fixation of Property Taxes" in which I described a bill that recently passed the General Assembly allowing our towns to deny the property tax credit to seniors. Seniors with incomes below...

They Go Together

 June 18, 2014

Having seen the display on the Green of the Civil War deaths and related material, I would like to get a copy. Also, I think it would be good for the 375th Committee to reprint the Charles D. Hubbard book (from the 1939 300th anniversary), Old Guilford...

School Safety by the Numbers

 June 18, 2014

Guilford's Public Schools can improve safety and communication with an inexpensive door-numbering system.

Making Wishes Come True

 June 18, 2014

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and donated to Laddie's Wish event on June 7. The overwhelming support and generosity everyone showed was truly amazing. Our community is great because of all of these supporters-we cannot thank them...

Incredible Support and Assistance for Girls Utd.

 June 18, 2014

Girls Unlimited! Guilford held its first conference on May 31. The conference was a huge success, with 46 girls in grades 6 to 9 attending the event. The keynote addresses included "Girls in Sports," "Girls in Literature," and "Girls in Other Countries." During...

We Won't Stand for It

 June 11, 2014

We have a serious problem in our school system, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's called bullying, and we aren't doing enough in Guilford and our schools to help prevent it. As a parent, it makes me feel angry, frustrated, hurt, and helpless.

A Day of Tribute

 June 11, 2014

I would like to thank all the volunteers and committee members who helped make Guilford and the Civil War a huge success-the 14th Connecticut Regiment reenactors, Dudley Farms, Allegra Farms, food vendors, dancers, actors, musicians, and Guilford High School and...

Protect the Gateway

 June 4, 2014

A bulk propane storage business has been proposed on the west end of Route 1. This area was studied back in 2000-'03 as part of a comprehensive review of Route 1, east and west. The east end was completed in '02 and then the west end, referred to as the "Gateway...

Sincere Condolences

 May 28, 2014

I would like to send my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to the family of Tom Wilson, owner of Rituals Spa. It is a very sad situation that the general public had no way of knowing anything about. I'm going to forego the gift certificates that family and...

Makes Me Ashamed

 May 28, 2014

In my opinion, employees of Rituals Spa, and some customers, knew of the owner's personal difficulties (it had happened before), but some went ahead and created the media controversy that may have contributed to his tragic end. The $18,000 paid for gift...

The Matter Does Become Emotional

 May 21, 2014

A recent letter asks for an honest discussion about the J.J. Sullivan propane proposal [May 7, "Bring Civility Back" by Richard Evans].
