So, yet another winner with a Quick Pick. Very many big lottery winners say that they got their winRead More by using a quick pick. Maybe there's nothing really to it, but quick picks definitely do seem to be more lucky. To try and take advantage of this, I've made up a little free and just-for-fun page which generates your own personal quick pick numbers. Who knows, it might work - you just never know your luck! As I say, it is free and just a bit of fun, so look out for VillaLibra Lucky Numbers if you want to see if you can locate it for yourself.

To everyone faulting DI for not commenting on this, I completely disagree with you. They made aRead More simple statement saying that there was more to the story than what we are being told. That's all they need to do. Unlike this attention grabbing entitled mother and her uncontrollable kid, DI is taking the dignified approach by not partaking in a public display of he said/ she said. Good for them. Take another look at the tv report and tell me that kid is not out of control. He is running all over the place with the reporter's microphone, which he has no business even touching. Clearly the mother has not taught him the word "no". Better that he learn at 4 that the world will not tolerate his obnoxious behavior. God bless his teachers. :)

I heard this mother on the radio who was out of her mind saying her kid doesn't need to change toRead More please the world and the world should just accept him. Absolutely no discipline. Further, on the same radio show, numerous people from the area called up stating they stopped patronizing this shop because of this out of control kid. This mother and her little snowflake are a snapshot of what is wrong with this country today. No respect for anyone.

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

Sure, if you're the bicyclist you can - and should - do that, I agree. My point was that thisRead More article is about which towns are the safest for bicyclists and so my point was that I'm not sure that just because some towns have task forces, outreach, and engagement actually makes them truly any safer in reality without widening some roads, which are typically pretty narrow in CT, too narrow for cars and bikes to correctly share them.
Lesley July 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm

Yes, it should follow that "distracted cycling" is against the law - easy enough to findRead More out. Enforcement of laws is certainly important safety of all users of the road, and is recognized as such, but there are four others that are necessary for a Town to become Bike-Friendly, which is the point of the survey initiative. Linda was on to one of the others - Education. For the rest of the "E"s, go to www.bikeleague.org/content/5-es and follow what is happening nation-wide to make cycling a safe and acceptable activity everywhere. As for this initial survey, the results are clearly not very accurate, and hopefully many more people will care to participate next time.

I didn't see any stats about how many bike accidents there were? In Fairfield, we see tons ofRead More bicycles. Most do not follow the rules of the road...they go the wrong way, they fail to signal, they fail to yield the right of way, at stop signs, and most are adults who certainly should know better. Yesterday I saw a man on a scooter, without a helmet, on So. Benson Rd...ON THE PHONE! I really believe that most of the roads, in Fairfield are unsafe for bicycling. It's not the fault of the roads, but traffic is very heavy in this town, and people do not use caution and common sense. I really believe a bike in this town, is extremely dangerous.

First...the animal is NOT well cared for....see how the bottom jaw recedes a bit....thats called MBDRead More or Metabolic Bone Disease....it happens when a lizard like this does NOT receive proper care as far as calcium consumption is concerned. It is 100% preventable given PROPER care...and it is also a very painful disease for the animal...do NOT give this animal back to it's original owner. Give it to someone who can properly care for the poor thing....
