    Discovering The Headwaters Of The Coginchaug River At Guilford's Northwoods

    A River Walk Not To Be Missed

  • Sadly, it's not the economy alone

  • Tribal question a matter of dollars

    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
