On the Right Path

 August 27, 2014

Thanks for your Aug. 7 article ["Greenway Trail Gets Going"] announcing the public hearing for Shoreline Greenway Trail (SGT)'s first section in Guilford last week-it helped us have a good turnout of almost 50 folks!

Consider All the People

 August 27, 2014

I would like to thank Mr. Edward Dinse for his Aug. 14 letter to the editor ["Not Doing the Community Any Good"]. I agree with his opinion totally. We need more people asking questions. Preferably before proposals get approved.

Working Against One Another

 August 20, 2014

It made me smile a very sad smile when I read the request from the Guilford Garden Club for donations to the Tree Fund. The Tree Fund makes it possible to plant trees wherever needed on town property.

Only Takes a Split Second

 August 20, 2014

I'm alarmed when I see our high-schoolers jogging on New England Road, West Lake Avenue, or any road with cars for that matter. Doesn't the high school have a running track? Do these kids have permission slips from their parents to be running there? As a parent...

In Such a Hurry

 August 20, 2014

In regards to Carol Ann Swan's Aug. 7 letter to the editor regarding the geese crossing ["Let Them Cross"], I also witnessed the same incident.

This Problem Is Real

 August 13, 2014

I was recently approached by the Guilford Police Department and asked if I knew who was behind the illegal distribution of "gang stalking" flyers in Guilford.

Not Doing the Community Any Good

 August 13, 2014

I am tired of calls for civility when people in decision-making positions are questioned for whatever reason. Mr. Richard Evans wrote to defend his pal Tony Fappiano, whom he assumes is under attack [July 31 letter "Owes an Apology"]. Good for him. But instead...

Unified in Our Determination

 August 6, 2014

As shocking as it may be to have Mr. Tony Fappiano's name used in a "gang stalking" flyer, and as diligent a public servant as he may be, it's also shocking to have the West End Planning Committee members implicated in this unless there is clear evidence for...

The Tradition of Excellence

 August 6, 2014

The citizens of Guilford and Madison have been very fortunate to have had an outstanding individual serving as their judge of probate for the past 19 years. Joel Helander exercised great compassion, sensitivity, and practicality in serving all citizens having...

Let Them Cross

 August 6, 2014

On July 26, while driving on Stone House Lane in Guilford, I was fortunate enough to witness a wonderful sight of more than two dozen Canada geese walking across the road en route to the field located at the Guilford Fairgrounds. With my mother as...

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...
