April 26th will mark the 20th annual Earth Day celebrated in Woodbury, CT, and the third year it will be brought to you by the Woodbury Business and Economic Development Committee (WBEDC), and sponsored in part by New Morning Market. The event will take place at the field at Woodbury Middle School from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Vendors, exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers are being sought.

This event is not-for-profit, and any proceeds collected will be donated to local charities. The Woodbury Earth Day Committee is now seeking the participation of exhibitors who share in the vision of preserving a sound environment and supporting a sustainable lifestyle. Those interested in applying for a 10' x 10' booth space are asked to visit http://www.woodburyearthday.org to download the application. Or they may email woodburyearthday@gmail.com for an application or with any questions.

 For-profit booth space is $50 for non food concessions, and $250 for food concessions. There is also a non-profit rate of $25. The deadline for submissions is March 28th.

 "The celebration has grown tremendously over the last 20 years and we could not have done this without the support and encouragement from this wonderful community of Woodbury and the surrounding towns" says committee chair John Pittari. "Watching families come together and enjoy all that the day has to offer is gratifying, and it's what keeps our planning committee of volunteers working so hard each year."

Sponsors are also being sought for this event, for areas such as the food garden, children's activities, and entertainment. Tracey Blackman, committee member in charge of sponsorships and marketing says sponsorship packages can also be tailored to meet individual sponsor's needs. All ideas will be considered. Those interested can reach Tracey at 203-915-3874 or tracey@traceyblackman.com.

Anyone seeking additional information is encouraged to visit www.woodburyearthday.org or www.facebook.com/woodburyearthday, where they may also sign up to receive emails about the event. Or they may email woodburyearthday@gmail.com.

There will never be unity or civility in this town when you and your buddies work to personally destroy people. You are cowards and bullies. Attack people's kids. Attack their livelihood. Destroy their reputation. Try to get them arrested. Drag their personal lives into public forums. Insult people behind screen names. You and your side just wants me silenced and intimidated into silence. Not going to happen. My offer stands for you and your buddies. I will debate on camera any of these issues any time. Just tell me the topic, where and when.

V you do not have any points. You just snipe behind the keyboard. You have a right to be heard, so put your name to your comments.

When you are outraged about the conduct of your side, you can come back to us and talk about civility and unity and being part of the solution. When you have to have your name dragged through the newspaper by the distorter constantly. When you have to have your good name trashed by agenda driven distorters, come back and talk to those who have (not just me I am referring to). When you denounce Julie Sutton, Martin Overton's girlfriend (not sure if that started before he decided to get divorced) for her comments directed at a number of people, come and talk to me about working with others. It is far easier to attack me and tell your disengaged buddies how much of a nutcase I am than take the time to learn the real issues.

As a courtesy, since you do not know what has gone on, here is a short list. Martin Overton and Bob Clarke worked together to ram through zoning regulation changes behind the commissions back. Overton intentionally withheld legal opinions on those proposed changes. See the June 2011 opinions as examples, as well as the Council of Government's report from October 2013. I was long gone from the commission when that one went down. Or perhaps you can comment on Bob Clarke's comments at the last meeting that things were not done right under Overton. I look forward to the day the Distorter from Waterbury writes about that. The town had no legal right to regulate political signs and definitely not the way Overton attempted. The Zoning Commission refused to learn or follow proper procedures. You have a member who has been on zoning longer than I have been alive. These are real issues that actually matter.

The same backroom actions and not following the rules continue as Overton moved to the BOS. Butterly has no idea what he is doing and is busy repaying his supporters. Lamothe is back. Prince Timmy and Mr Soccer were put on Park and Wreck over 2 people who have degrees in the field. There are lots of unanswered questions there. And how many Butterly supporters want to use the town fields for profit? These things matter. The problem is personnel. I can say that for sure on Planning and Zoning. People do not care enough about this town to put the right thing first.
