Hi Jaimie As a graphic designer who is a bit perplexed over the recent upswing inRead More "contests" to create designs, I was hoping you could pass on my thoughts to those who are seeking postcard designs for the Nathan Hale schoolhouse. To them, I say hire a graphic designer and pay them a fair price for their work. A better product results and the world of designers isn't insulted that their work is considered so petty that anyone can do it for free. When was the last time you went to a restaurant, ordered several meals, than paid for your favorite. You wouldn't even think of it. That's what is done with these design "contests" but the winner even isn 't paid. Sincerely, Kathy Sobb Sent from my iPhone Sent from my iPhone

Sorry Kathy, I don't agree. I am a marketing creative director/ designer. I don't have a problem atRead More all with local contests to promote community-oriented efforts. It is actually a good marketing strategy to engage the community in an organization or project. It is not about creating the most 'professional' design, but about getting people involved in an effort.

Joseph, if you don't Patch, you can simply unsubscribe to it.

I appreciate the Patch greatly. I don't know what Joseph's problem is with it but he looks prettyRead More silly going off on a rampage about things that have nothing to do with Patch readers or the "Blue Moon" article he chose to spew his political hatred under! If you don't like Patch, don't click on it to see any of the news and information. I appreciate reading about what is going on locally because the Hartford Courant doesn't bother covering our community news anymore like it used to when they had different regional editions. It's as if our part of CT doesn't exist when you read through the skimpy Courant! I hope that the Patch continues to give us what's going on in our area of CT, if not thru AOL, then online somewhere else. Thank you, Patch!!!

Unfortunately both Thomas and Basha are correct, what took Jackson and the LC to destroy in 5 years,Read More will take a lot longer to make right. Similar to the state of the country, it has been destroyed beyond it ever being fixed in my lifetime I'm sure. As far as the percentages go Thomas; I would love to know just how many of the 51 % were home owners and how many were renters. It seem as with the Presidential Elections you were given a choice between a Politician and a Game Show Host giving away a grand list of prizes! What chance do the Republicans have when the Democrats Promise the world? And how long will it take the ones who fell for those promises to realize that's all they were - empty promises? Basha if this article were 25/30 years ago I'm sure Hamden would have been at the top of the list, but I'm afraid sadly our time has long since past!

Wethersfield? A small town? Really???
Everett Henry March 18, 2014 at 10:20 am
I wish I knew what the criteria was for this committee to pick the ideal small town in Connecticut.Read More I just feel choices could be better for picking the idea of a smown. Personally, two towns I would pick as my top 10 would be either Essex or Old Saybrook. Each build these towns today show a quaintness and historical perspective that cannot be beat. Each has its own characteristics but most importantly each is privy two being located on a river – an important factor in our colonial period for transportation. Even Middletown should be considered as top 10 due to the location and ease of formidable transportation. I wish the committee would outline the criteria.

What is really lost in this technology era we are in is the personal touch.

Over the years, Ed's recommendations to me of films he somehow knew would fit my non-traditionalRead More interests were rarely mis-directed. Why else go back? And I did, over and over again and would still. Yet the customer loyalty he earned from all who valued his interest and insight that translated into just the right film at just the right time, pizza and popcorn notwithstanding, was not enough to beat back the digitalized future. We spoke of it from time to time, underscored sharply by example of when DVDs displaced videotapes, and he predicted the inevitable demise of his own business and all the others like it, the mom and pop video stores as well as the big boxes. Something else we often talked about were our kids, growing up locally, getting educated afar and then, hopefully, joining a vastly different world. Which they did. So now, even though I would not give up streaming video to return to what's gone and over, miss it as I might, I'll try to return the favor of Ed's hundreds of recommendations to me for one of my own to him for a film he knew was in production but was gone before its release, written by my son Marc whose film career Ed followed at my insistence for a wonderfully long time. Enjoy! DJ Arneson http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/70200453?strkid=324744748_0_0&trkid=222336&movieid=70200453

Sean, I heard Tightwad, Maine has low taxes and a school system that would definately meet yourRead More standards (low). I'll pay for the gas because it the classy thing to do. See I can do something classy even though you state I am classless above.
Sean December 7, 2013 at 12:13 am
Joe, you are so generous with other people's money. When you will put your own up to pay for thingsRead More you demand, then come and talk to me. How about you go and raise some funds for the wants that were shoved in there. How is it that the football field needs turf at a school with a Vo-Ag program. If your side had any integrity, it would make the argument for that bond job and win on the merits. Instead, deception, manipulation, and flat out lying. (It turns out it would cost more than $450 a year, not the $100 promised). That was one classy one using kids to run a cheer in the Memorial Day parade. Win by any means necessary. Pathetic example for kids to learn. Or what does it say to kids that the law was broken and your side has been silent? Another fine example: it is okay to not follow the rules as long as you win.

That's a fantastic idea!! I'd love to see the Old Town Hall come to life again.

The Walking Dead was a successful comic series years ago. AMC took a shot and ordered a fewRead More episodes. The show caught on because nothing ever goes right. The show takes a completely different approach to television. The good guys do not win and the world is ugly. AMC hit a homerun with outside the mainstream shows, including Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. People are tired of the same old broadcast tv stuff. Cable can do more risque stuff. Just see the success of other shows like Dexter.
