Letters to the Editor

Premium Content Not all disabilities can be seen

 July 9, 2014

After having surgery I was told by my doctor not to drive for a few days. My grandson and his friend drove me to a restaurant in Niantic, and we parked in a space designated for the handicapped.

Premium Content Magnet schools are a sound investment

 July 9, 2014

I had a great chuckle when I read the superintendent of Groton public schools comments in the The Day's article, "Magnet school cost raise some local concerns," (July 3), on magnet school tuition costs.

First, let me say that his comment...

Premium Content Challenges in dealing with the homeless

 July 9, 2014

Accounts of quality of life issues discussed at the June 20 City Council meeting elicit several thoughts. This is a micro city. Those moving here should perform due diligence to investigate the nature of their new neighborhoods, rather than...

Premium Content Ruling doesn't take away women's rights

 July 9, 2014

There are a few things that you missed in the editorial, "Dangerous ruling risks women's rights," (July 1), on the Supreme Court's decision on the Hobby Lobby case,

 July 8, 2014

I went to a Board of Selectmen's meeting July 1 and heard more about the school project that failed twice.

Premium Content ALDI better fit than specialty grocery store

 July 8, 2014

Moving Fiddleheads into the proposed Klewin development at Parcel J seems misguided. It doesn't bring a new business to New London. It leaves another empty space downtown. And it's hardly affordable.

We applaud Fiddleheads for its progress,...

Premium Content Malloy right to seek deal for Bridgewater

 July 7, 2014

I suggest that the editor read his own words, "that most states aggressively practice corporate welfare to woo major job creators and Connecticut has seen big hedge fund corporations move before."

In the editorial, "Malloy not feeling the...

Premium Content Reviving unions key to saving middle-class

 July 7, 2014

The most important economic problem today is income and wage inequality. The top 10 percent own three-quarters of the wealth. The top 10 percent receives nearly half the income. Wealth is increasing faster than income thus continuously increasing...

Premium Content Redevelopment plan for Seaside stinks

 July 7, 2014

I have a few questions about the development proposal of the Seaside property in Waterford.

Are we stupid?

How many times will our officials fall for the developer's bait and switch tactics?

Since the original development...

Premium Content Linda Krause served our region astutely

 July 6, 2014

We have been blessed by strong and effective community leaders in our region over the years. One such leader recently passed, Linda Krause.

Premium Content This makes no sense!

 July 6, 2014

A law to help immigrants drive? In your front-page article, "New law aims to help some immigrants drive legally," (June 28), you are talking about workshops to help undocumented immigrants to get a driving license in New London.

Premium Content Jahncke plan serves only wealthy capitalists

 July 5, 2014

As I was reading the op-ed, "Has Gov. Malloy built a union bridge too far?" (June 30), by Red Jahncke, CNBC was reporting in the background that since 1978 CEO pay has increased by over 700 percent while the working stiff has made do with only a...

Premium Content Day running too much right-wing commentary

 July 5, 2014

I am writing to express my displeasure with articles that have been appearing in The Day's editorial page in recent times.

It appears to me that there has been a strong tendency to feature articles by conservative writers, whose viewpoints...

Premium Content Workers should ignore Jahncke's rich blather

 July 5, 2014

The poor and middle-class should not be surprised by Red Jahncke's cheap shot at Gov. Malloy and the labor movement, "Has Gov. Malloy built a union bridge too far?" (June 30). The thought that we should take advice from a Greenwich business...

Premium Content Future generations will appreciate this gift

 July 5, 2014

I have been thinking a lot about legacies. Very few people can leave millions of dollars to their children and grandchildren. Only the super wealthy leave behind great art collections or jewels. The truly lucky pass on season tickets at Fenway.

Premium Content Un-Christian behavior to scorn children

 July 4, 2014

"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love than this no one has, that one lay down his life for his friends.... These things I command you, that you may love one another;" and, "If you love me, you will...

Premium Content Obama plans brilliant strategy? Probably not

 July 4, 2014

My president is not just brilliant, he is crazy brilliant. While the world is watching his left hand feint appearing feckless by refusing to commit but token American involvement in Iraq's current turmoil, his right hand sleight is cleverly...

Premium Content In America, we can do something about it

 July 4, 2014

"What can I do about it?"

Premium Content Arguing over team name wastes time

 July 4, 2014

When does our government, during such turbulent times, have time to place upon their daily to-do-list the debate over whether the name of one of the oldest football teams, the Washington Redskins, should be removed is beyond rational...

Premium Content Inspirational story of a brave little lady

 July 3, 2014

The story of Emily Zinz is sad and heart rendering and at the same time very inspirational: "Mother of Emily Zinz: 'When she met her last goal, she was done'," (June 27).
