Fat is where it’s at for bears in autumn

Nature's Notebook

Even though the fall colors are not as vibrant as they could be this year, autumn continues to be my favorite season. Maybe I am still elated by the beautiful weather we had over Columbus Day weekend, or maybe it is the crispness and purity of the air that outweighs the lack of color. Regardless, this is a great time to see a flurry of activity as plants and animals get ready for winter.

A healthy population is a truly conservative goal

The Chris Powell Column

What is it with conservatives and their obsession about repealing the federal law that aims to achieve medical insurance for all citizens?

Yes, the law may be too bureaucratic and some of its details are fairly questioned. But what’s wrong with its premise — that government should see that everyone has decent medical insurance and medical care?

We should elect our next U.S. senator with care

If You Ask Me

On those rare occasions Connecticut elects a new senator, it’s usually the beginning of a beautiful, multi-term friendship.

Six men — and no women — were elected to the U.S. Senate from Connecticut in the past 50 years: Republican Lowell Weicker and Democrats Tom Dodd, Abe Ribicoff, Chris Dodd, Joe Lieberman and Dick Blumenthal. (Lieberman was elected twice as a Democrat and once as a third- party independent.)

Chris Dodd served five six-year terms, Lieberman will have had four terms, Ribicoff and Weicker, three, and Tom Dodd, two.

When will you need help of volunteers?

The Lakeville Journal Editorial

A dramatic rescue at the top of Mount Frissell in the Taconic Range a couple of weeks ago was described in last week’s Lakeville Journal by one of the hikers, Ann vonHoorn of New Preston, who was in the injured person’s party. The hikers are eight women who get together for an outing every Monday in the summer and fall. One misstep on a challenging hiking trail turned a weekly celebration of nature into an exercise in emergency response and critical care.

Wondering how to control federal spending?

By The Numbers

Have you ever wondered why federal spending continues to increase despite the ongoing economic downturn and in the face of all the bluster about the debt ceiling that came out of Washington this past summer? The hidden driver is something called “baseline budgeting.” More on that below.

In a household or in any business, budgets are formally or informally set based on income, projected over some period of time. In many households, that time frame may be as short as a month; for large corporations, it may be five years or more.
