Madison Is Not a City

 September 10, 2014

A letter from Mr. Peter Hastings Falk of Madison ["Dealing a Deathblow," Sept. 4] stated that our first selectman is responsible for "the death blow" to food trucks in Madison. Mr. Falk then goes on to state, "Every city in the country has benefited from the...

Easier Than Change

 September 10, 2014

Mr. Peter Hatings Falk in his letter last week ["Dealing a Deathblow"] referred to Board of Selectmen as "clinging to the status quo" in reference to the food truck issue. If he had attended the first public hearing, last night, of the Charter Review Committee,...

Do Not Benefit the Town

 September 10, 2014

Let me talk about the food trucks. First, the area of the car park in the front of Academy School is not, I believe, a designated commercial zone for businesses. It's intended as a parking location for persons who use the school, the visitors center, the Madison...

A Nice Contrast

 September 10, 2014

We should return the food vendors to the front of the school. We need the diversity of food they offer. It's fast food. They complement our other restaurants in town.

Dealing a Deathblow

 September 3, 2014

Madison's Board of Selectmen must face a simple fact: When it relegated food vendors to the side street in the shadow of the Academy School, it knew it was dealing a deathblow. Sadly, when it killed the food trucks, it snuffed out a wonderful spirit that was...

Intelligent People Can Disagree

 August 27, 2014

Recently, I wrote a letter expressing disappointment that State Representative Noreen Kokoruda sent out another taxpayer-subsidized mailer containing a section that was overtly partisan. I thank her supporters for sharing their opinions in their own letters and...

Best and Worst

 August 27, 2014

Historia de dos ciudades ["A tale of two cities"]. On pages 6 and 7 of the Aug. 14 The Source are two pictures that tell the story far better than words. It was the best of times (page 6 [a photo of concert-goers at the Madison Beach Hotel]),...

Madison Has 'Zoned Out'

 August 20, 2014

As a 15-year resident of Madison and a lover of good food, I have to wonder why the town of Madison has "zoned out" all of our food trucks. I am a stay-at-home mom with my own cleaning service and I am a firm believer in supporting my local businesses,...

Give the Vendors Visibility

 August 20, 2014

As I live and breathe-the good citizens of Madison actually eat-standing up!

Angels Around Us

 August 20, 2014

I would like to thank the ladies, and especially the young gal who stopped her car on Middle Beach Road when she saw me frantically trying to call my pup. She broke loose off her leash, after becoming frightened by a skateboarder. I didn't get the woman's name,...

Talk About Partisanship

 August 13, 2014

I must take issue with a July 31 letter from Deb Heinrich, former state representative for the 101st District ["Inappropriate Partisanship"]. Ms. Heinrich states, "Once again, I have found, to my disappointment, that Ms. Kokoruda's legislative review is overtly...

Offer Your Insight

 August 13, 2014

Last week the front-page article ["After a Decade, Charter Review Begins," Aug. 7]
announced the start of the 10-year Town Charter review process. I wonder how many Madison folks even know we have a town meeting form of government? Since the last charter...

Long History of Bipartisanship

 August 13, 2014

I read Deb Heinrich's July 31 letter ["Inappropriate Partisanship"] and I have to admit that I was confused. Having had the pleasure of being represented by Noreen Kokoruda for many years in several different capacities and having seen how she addresses issues,...

Important Financial Discussions

 August 13, 2014

In a July 31 letter to the editor ["Inappropriate Partisanship"], former state representative Deborah Heinrich accused our current State Representative Noreen Kokoruda of partisanship in her 2014 legislative review brochure. While Ms. Heinrich may find this...

Honesty, Not Partisanship

 August 13, 2014

I found Ms. Heinrich's characterization of State Representative Noreen Kokoruda's appraisal of the latest legislative session [July 31 letter "Inappropriate Partisanship"] as a "partisan missive" puzzling. These mailers are funded by taxpayer dollars to enable...

The Temperament and Compassion Necessary

 August 6, 2014

On Aug. 12, I will be voting for Attorney Gail S. Kotowski for the Republican nomination for the office of probate judge for Madison and Guilford. Attorney Kotowski has the legal background, experience, and, most important, the temperament and compassion...

Thanks from Friends

 August 6, 2014

Many Madison folks came to the Legion Hall to help make the Scranton Library Friends Used Book Sale a success. Thanks are due to these teens who volunteered: Chris Arrandale, Piper Boeth, Mariah Concannon, Alina and Gabi Dess, Victoria and John Hartmann, Brian...

Right to a Full and Balanced View

 August 6, 2014

First let me say that I was opposed to the acquisition of the Bradley Road property and the way in which it was presented. However, I do feel strongly that the selectmen (from both parties) had the obligation to pursue the property, bring forward what it would...

Our Thoughtful Neighbor

 August 6, 2014

It has been my privilege to know William Bilcheck for many years and I wholeheartedly encourage everyone eligible to come out and vote for Bill in the upcoming Republican primary.

Opposition Based on Policy

 August 6, 2014

Recently in this newspaper, State Representative Noreen Kokoruda ["Drop the Politics," July 17 letter to the editor] questioned my motivation for writing a letter to the editor critical of her support of legislation to change our statewide senior tax relief...

No Police Response

 August 6, 2014

Last Thursday night, when I got off the train from Stamford at 6:40 p.m., I found that my catalytic converter had been cut from my Grand Cherokee. I really didn't know what had happened except a fellow commuter told me that it had happened to him three years...

Help Those Who Need Help

 August 6, 2014

[Regarding July 24 letters from Eileen Banisch ("Stick to the Subject") and Tom Banisch ("The Process Works") concerning public conduct at the July 16 Board of Finance hearing], I thank Eileen and Tom Banisch for the work that they both do for Madison, but I...

Has the Skills and Experience

 August 6, 2014

I am writing to support Attorney William Bilcheck for Madison/Guilford District probate judge in the Aug. 12 primary. I have known Bill as an attorney and community volunteer for more than 25 years. Bill has the skills and experience to address any probate issue...

Generous, Helpful, and Always Friendly

 August 6, 2014

The elected position for the Madison and Guilford probate judge will be on the Republican primary ballot this summer. I am asking my fellow registered Republicans to vote for William (Bill) Bilcheck at the primary.

Could Use Some Improvement

 August 6, 2014

That was a nice photo [of the July 19 Hillary Clinton booksigning at R.J.Julia Booksellers] on page 1 of The Source on July 24. The caption could use some improvement: "and dozens lined up across the street to protest her appearance" is low in...
