Has Learned How to Help

 September 17, 2014

From the day Ted Kennedy, Jr., woke up and found that to live his life he had to learn how to do it with less of one leg than he had the day before, he has learned how to help many, many others learn to do the same. Ted Kennedy is much more than just a person...

A Strong Advocate for Branford

 September 17, 2014

Sound Advice

 September 10, 2014

Must Be Resisted

 September 10, 2014

I'm responding to State Senator Ed Meyer's Aug. 21 column, "The Common Core Will Help," wherein he criticizes teachers who resist implementing Common Core standards in our schools. However, these teachers deserve praise for defending their students' best...

The Field Looked Fantastic

Comes Down to Public-Sector Unions

 July 30, 2014

This letter is in response to William Gouin's July 10 letter, "Taxpayers or Town Employees?"

Taxpayers or Town Employees?

 July 9, 2014
