Letter: Reemsnyder Contacted Two Years Ago on Beaver Problem

To the Editor: Thank you for your article, “As Beavers Flood Properties Old Lyme…”.  I’m grateful that you investigated the issue including meeting with Old Lyme town leadership. Unfortunately, First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder’s statement, that she only found out about the beaver’s destruction from my letter to the editor, is not accurate.  Two years ago, Dave… Keep Reading

Letter: No Factual Basis to Require Sewers at Hawk’s Nest

To the Editor: Cate Hewitt’s article regarding the Hawk’s Nest challenge to sewers is excellent. Her interview and quotes from Sandy Garvin make the situation quite clear. DEEP started this controversy by mandating sewers in all the beach communities without factual substantiation and data to support their contentions. Certainly, there are beach areas that will… Keep Reading

Letter: “Slim down your waste”

While it is vitally important that our municipal, state and federal government agencies work aggressively on environmental protection acts, our individual behavior and responsible approach to waste management is imperative. We must all learn to trim a little off of our waste, little by little, every day. Small changes can make a big difference over time. Keep Reading

Letter: “Sanitized” Report on Pantries Misses Point

To the Editor:

Your June 3 article "Shoreline Food Pantries Consider Split" was objectively written, but too “sanitized".

I feel you should have reported more thoroughly on the opinions of volunteers to whom you gave scant mention. They have the direct contact with the guests served and the knowledge of the way things have operated so well during the past 10+ years.

Letter: Madly Off in Every Direction

I think that most Old Lyme residents regardless of political affiliation agree on a few clear priorities: resolving the sewer situation for the shoreline, spending the town’s money wisely, obtaining public support before initiatives are undertaken by the town, executing town projects efficiently and in a timely manner, and maintaining the character of Old Lyme. 

But in recent years, the town has hopscotched from major initiative to major initiative, without substantive public support, without deliberate consideration of alternatives, and without a defined timetable for deadlines and accomplishments.  From sewering the entire shoreline, to street improvements on Hartford Avenue, to renovating Hains Park to merging our police Keep Reading

Letter: Moving Parts

To the Editor:

While riding a SEAT [Southeast Area Transit] bus to catch Shore Line East -- yes, it is possible -- I read CT Examiner's interview with the New London mayor and his comments linking proposed tolls to the cost of mass transit (or perhaps it was just edited that way).

The otherwise helpful and capable SEAT driver happened to make a comment on what a waste of tax dollars the underused bus service is. I laughed to myself, thinking how I'd be fired if I Keep Reading

Letter: “Time is the ally of the voter”

Connecticut is one of twelve states that does not allow early voting. To do so, requires amending the State’s Constitution. A few days ago, the Connecticut Legislature endorsed early voting, 125-24, The Senate voted in favor of the bill 23-12, four votes shy of the super majority needed to send the proposed amendment to the voters. They will try again. Keep Reading
