Super. But this thread is supposed to be about CT and its governor. These things get so off topic.

Maria Young, there are quite a few European countries that are called "socialist" by manyRead More people. The per capita incomes of Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, and Sweden are all higher than the USA.

Len they just passed the "law" for high profile vehicles to clean off the vehicles,Read More ESPECIALLY the roofs or its up to $1,000 ticket! Yeah RIGHT LMFBO I must have seen 100 without their sh*t cleaned off the LAST storm, never mind the last how many years since they invented the soccer mommy mini vans! They are the WORST! Gas and GO! Thats their motto. Somebody came into my kids place the other day with a smashed windshield from ICE on a roof of a veh. Its DANGEROUS and IRRESPONSIBLE to drive like that.

Winter storm pax? Should have been named winter storm paxel. Because that's what I'm gonna need.Read More after this winter.I hate that groundhog.I hope he has to dig himself out of his hole a thousand times as I did digging my driveway out every time the plow driver came by. But, what can i expect its New England. I shouldn't complain I moved here. and the plow monsters must do there jobs.

Waking up early, going down stairs, turning on the tv to watch ONE of the THREE stations ticker toRead More see if MY school was on it! Like hitting the daily number NOW lol.

Yes Len, there are enough steps and sidewalks for hundreds of people to gather on. There is evenRead More enough light post for a good number of Dogs to use. Progress at it best! LOL
Marjorie B. January 28, 2014 at 07:59 am
No one but police personnel can park in that lot at the current time. The upper levels are notRead More finished. So....the public still cannot easily access THEIR monument to government.

I was, and am, in favor of a new town hall and police station. We needed it badly! It turned outRead More that the lowest bidder on the design and archetect was also as about as sharp as a bowling ball. My 4 year old has designed better layouts with his legos in her playroom

There were TWO shootings yesterday. they only let you KNOW about one!

It already a chicken farm, I was being sarcastic. And if you TEACH the horse from the time it canRead More COMPREHEND it will drink the water, because thats what it is TOLD its SUPPOSED to do. Leading a horse to water USUALLY insinuates its an older horse, not a baby. And I'VE lived under 10 presidents too, whats your point? One minute your talking up socialism and the next your promoting a conservative ideology, you're assimilating things. And drafts and cell phones?
J D C November 28, 2013 at 04:06 pm
MAC by the omission I think they're telling us. Its just a "game" you know? Incredible
Phinch November 28, 2013 at 05:00 pm
Ricardo, I realize you're grasping for suggested solutions, but in today's military there is no roomRead More for, nor do they want, the type of walking sewage you say should serve in our military. Ricardo A Dominguez said "The Draft should be reinstated. Everyone serves in Israel. Why not here? Conscription in the United States should be mandated. If your country provides support for you and your family, the children must serve their country. Serve your country or go to jail. (In Siberia)"

I live on one of the streets where a party was held although far enough up the road that I neverRead More knew anything was happening.The day after the party there was a lovely note from the 4 young women whose intent was to hold a small party that got out of hand. I understand that they called the police for help but were arrested.While I do not condone underage drinking or substance abuse or disturbing the peace I do not think all students at QU behave this way.Yes there is room for improvement but I know they are not the only individuals for example speeding up and down Todd St , plenty of my contemporaries are.So lets see both sides of this.Also I agree that if the students are off campus they should be subject to the laws of the town.I also agree if once arrested ,parents had to make the drive from out of state in the middle of the night as one respondent suggested this might curb such behavior , that is if the students are under aged drinkers. My plan is to head down the road and meet my new neighbors.That said to my other neighbors I would not have been happy to see a huge drunk and disorderly crowd in my yard either.

I think this is truly a sad situation that the town,the police and the university must solveRead More together for the common good of all parties involved,myself being someone who grew up just a stone throw from S.C.S.U. in the sixties and seventies feel I can shed some insight on this subject.All I can relate is what I saw and the effect it had on me.I can recall that the winters were much more quiet and therefore I Liked winter.Warm weather brought keg parties in yards with so many people and no bathroom facilities that you would see both sexes urinating in public.There would be fights and arguments and live bands and people running wild all over the place ,puking ,vandalizing,and this would be every weekend and to a lesser scale during the week.I remember drunks hanging out on porches during the day and I remember it angered and offended me .There had to be at least 25 people renting the houses which were owned by people only interested in money and people who were dangerous in their own right.I at times avoided going home to get myself away from that environment which I felt then and now disrupted my formative years.The frats were dangerous ,unfriendly and if you said something the response was violent in nature.It therefore bothers me that now a kid could be growing up down there in Hamden and lets say the wrestling or football or basketball or lacrosse frat takes up residence next door and how that could impact that child,thats what I think all these parties and all there degrees should debate,enviroment is big in a kids life .I have come to learn and understand and accept that you can't blame your problems on anyone but yourself but I do feel that the environment down there was a contributing factor for me to a life I spent 46 years as a worthless drunk.I now have been sober 10 years but only by seeing my part in that and to solve this problem I think all involved have to see their part in this and I can only imagine what those kids in the drug infested and gang plagued neighborhoods must feel and have to contend with,in my opinion the army should be put in there to protect the youth but the criminals have rights.I say this to the Mayor,The Police Chief,The University as I hear Chris Carter say on ESPN "" WHERE YOU AT''
J D C January 1, 2014 at 02:26 pm
You see THAT is one of the aspects of this that the child who wrote here doesn't comprehend, YET.Read More When he grows up he will understand that even ONE bad influence from these students can traumatize a child for LIFE! Well I dont know because it doessnt seem that Lahey or Jackson do, or WORSE, dont CARE. Maybe he'll fall under that category. You wouldnt put the LIONS in the Panda's habitat in a ZOO, why try to integrate COLLEGE STUDENTS into Hamdens quite NEIGHBORHOODS? You cant take an out of control lifestyle and let it loose in a setting that before they came the most dramatic thing that happened was a cat getting stuck in a tree! THATS why people CHOOSE and PAY through the nose to RAISE their children there, PERIOD!

I'm glad to see that the new gun control measures are working. I feel so much safer.

Yep Larry its so well controlled the only ones that have them are the thuggers.
Kathleen Ramunni (Editor) September 1, 2013 at 10:31 pm
Mr. McGraw, I'm sorry if the story implied guilt on the part of your son. Since another Patch editorRead More did the initial story and I didn't talk directly to police, I've deleted any police information. And I'm so, so sorry about the death of your son. My heart breaks for you and your family.
Yvonne September 2, 2013 at 02:59 pm
Bill, I am very saddened to hear about the loss of your son. May God comfort you and your family inRead More this time of need. Blessings... Yvonne Jones
lynngrace September 4, 2013 at 09:32 am
Prayers for you and your family. It is a terrible loss. Only someone who has lost a child knowsRead More the pain. My deepest sympathy.
mary c May 8, 2013 at 02:16 pm
Ed, I don't know if you are a religious person or not but I remind you that your loved ones are notRead More in the cemetery any more. I'm not trying to be harsh but realistic.Their souls and spirit have gone on and all that remains are skeletons.
Reyn Richard May 8, 2013 at 02:17 pm
He was a terrorist, now he is a dead person. Unless you have a fear of zombies there is no threat.Read More That said a cremation would be logical, but again religions instill illogical ideas.
Concerned Parent May 9, 2013 at 08:16 am
@mary. if you take some issue with this decision, I would suggest making your statement towardRead More those who actually have friends and family at that cemetery.
Voysuv Reason May 7, 2013 at 03:58 pm
120 burial sites have been offered his family, and odds are that he will be buried in NONE of themRead More as they are trying to get his remains returned to his birthplace. This knee-jerk response to the offer of a Vermont political gadfly is both predictable and exaggerated. Get you time on TV you must and then get out of the cemetery where our families are already buried. And those TV crews should not be parked on anything but the paved surfaces of that cemetery. Get them out of there too. Let the dead there rest in peace.
Linda C May 7, 2013 at 04:13 pm
Thomas it's not often I disagree with you, I understand your point about the U.S. citizens that haveRead More done wrong. However I was either too young or not here yet or I most likely would have complained about their burials as well. If I am forced to be civilized! Bury him with every severed body part of all the victims as a forever reminder of his actions! See if his parents object to that!
Voysuv Reason May 9, 2013 at 10:44 am
As, I said, all we had to do was wait it out for two days. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From theRead More Boston Herals this AM: “As a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased,” said Worcester police Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst. “The body is no longer in the city of Worcester and is now entombed.” Hazelhurst would not say where the body has been buried and would not provide any other details. Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors, which had worked since Friday to find a graveyard that would accept the body, would only say it was removed at 8:40 last night. The funeral home had been surrounded by a small crowd of protesters, media and detail officers for the past six days.

Alarm systems are also a good idea, he said, and valuables should not be left in plain view. ARead More better idea is a piece of lead travelling at 1200 fps. Bam problem solved for both you and your neighbors. But alas, our well armed and protected politicians don't think you should be able to protect your family of property like they protect theirs.
GNAC May 2, 2013 at 11:59 am
ps the Supreme court has determined that the police have no duty to protect.... so where does thatRead More leave you? Sure they will come out and investigate and tell you how you should have done something different (hide your valuables and lock your doors) to minimize the chance of you being the victim.....
Linda C May 2, 2013 at 02:28 pm
My home is equipped with an alarm that goes right to the alarm company. Let's face it though doesn'tRead More matter how fast they contact police, matters police response time. I've found the best deterrent is my 125 pound German Shepard. Seems to make even the most innocent stroller pick up the pace! Love my dog! Southern Hamden Residents should be given a 50% tax break since we are truly left to fend for ourselves. Maybe time to call in the Guardian Angels, worked for Westville.
