Letter: Vote YES for ALT, YES for the Truth

To the Editor:

I would like to thank our bi-partisan Board of Selectmen for publishing the facts about the sale of 19 acres of the South Park property to the esteemed Aspetuck Land Trust.

Letter: Spreading Fear & Misinformation

To the Editor:

Easton Republicans and their supporters have recently sent mailers that are full of fearmongering and scare tactics, yet empty of facts. One mailer came from a group whose “president” doesn’t even live in this state.

Letter: Students Not a Priority on SOS ‘Wish List’

Letter: Why the Fight Against DE&I?

To the Editor:

In Easton and Redding, there is outspoken, bitter opposition to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, to teaching our children about people who are different. I’d like to know why. Whatever happened to “love thy neighbor”?

Letter: Swastika — Just a Couple of Crazy Kids

To the Editor:

Oh, come on. They’re good kids, they just wanted to be rebellious. It hasn’t happened in this town before, so it’s not really a problem. Sure, they should be reprimanded for defacing school property, but let’s be honest, it was only chalk, not paint. This is a nice Continue reading “Letter: Swastika — Just a Couple of Crazy Kids”

Letter: Open Response to CRG/Sherry Harris and June Logie

While I regret giving your messages any more amplification than they deserve, I feel I must respond to your recent letter about Critical Race Theory and “cancel culture.”

You state “CRG expected criticism, but the level of venom was astounding and demonstrates that the fear many Continue reading “Letter: Open Response to CRG/Sherry Harris and June Logie”

Letter: A Sidewalk Does Not a City Make

To the Editor:

Many Eastonites are fighting against the proposed sidewalk as a dangerous step towards the urbanization of our town.
