  • Connecting The Dots Of The Old Air Line Railroad

    Connecting The Dots Of The Old Air Line Railroad
    "All aboard!" Those two words usually conjure an image of a conductor glancing at his pocket watch while standing outside a train billowing steam. But it could also describe Portland and East Hampton's efforts to bridge a gap in the Air Line Linear...
  • Sadly, it's not the economy alone

    It is human - or perhaps just journalistic - nature to think we can explain the inexplicable. We take all the horrifying details that tumble from first one murder-suicide that wipes out an entire family and then unbelievably a second one - the sunny...
  • In Search Of A Ghostly Village And Discovering A Lost Quarry Instead

    In Search Of A Ghostly Village And Discovering A Lost Quarry Instead
    It was a good plan. I would explore Maromas, Middletown's last frontier, in search of the remnants of a village that was swallowed up in the 1950s by the construction of the Connecticut Advanced Nuclear Engineering Laboratory – the predecessor of...
  • Swift Justice: Age discrimination, estates and co-signing

    Dear Jackie, I have applied for a position with a private sector nonprofit agency. I am more than qualified for the advertised position; however, I did not get a response from my application. The company continues to advertise the position. A friend...

    Women's Retreat Inspires Peace & Connection
    Don't we all need to regroup, slow down and "connect" once in awhile? Two licensed clinical social workers from Connecticut, Barbara Murray-Lane and Terri Theriault, are hosting "The Circle of Connection", a retreat for women at the Mercy Center in...

    The United States Mint -- you know, the guys who make your money -- issued a news release this week declaring that $130 refunds were being offered to anyone who bought a 2004 Lewis and Clark commemorative coin that was accompanied by a handcrafted pouch...
  • Toyota Avalon

    You dont realize how many Toyota Avalons are on the road until you drive one. Drive an Avalon around Hartford for a week, as Paula and I did, and you'll start seeing the car everywhere. I would say it's Toyota's best-kept secret when it comes to a fine...
  • In Search Of Our Railroad Past

    I saw a movie star in Haddam. No, Julia Roberts wasn't heading over the swing bridge to perform at the Goodspeed Opera House. I'm talking about the Shailerville Bridge along Route 154 near the old Shad Shack. And after driving through a stone arch tunnel...
  • A Forest Where The Pine Groves Seem To Go On Forever

    A Forest Where The Pine Groves Seem To Go On Forever
    It started off as a usual walk through the woods of central Connecticut. As I navigated the trails of Middletown's Highlawn Forest, I passed under huge oaks trees, walked along the banks of vernal pools scaring frogs into the water and tripped over chunks...
  • No Good Solution For Dangerous Ramp

    Editor's Note: This appeared in the Opinion Section of today's Hartford Courant. Is this stretch part of your everyday commute? Have you gotten into an accident or have a suggestion to cut back on the danger to drivers? Let us know in the comment...
  • A Visit To Fair Haven And The Coastal Meadows Of The Quinnipiac River

    A Visit To Fair Haven And The Coastal Meadows Of The Quinnipiac River
    A pair of osprey circled a nesting platform that held what resembled a pile of sticks as I walked along a trail of mud and crushed oyster shells. Off in the distance, traffic droned past along busy I-91. A path snaked its way through a meadow and along...
