It’s your money, so get involved

The Lakeville Journal Editorial

It’s budget time. Some years, that statement is one that gets too little attention, whether on the federal, state, city or town levels. This year, however, all strata of budgets are commanding attention, riveting citizens, and of course public employees, as perhaps never before.

Win, one-term governor; lose, maybe a second term

If You Ask Me
dahles@hotmail.com

If Connecticut history is an accurate guide, Dannel Malloy declared himself a one-term governor when he presented the voters with a budget containing something to offend just about all of them.
It’s not easy to be a one-term governor; you have to do what you think is right, without regard for the consequences. This usually involves taxes, and proposing the highest tax increases in state history surely puts Malloy in the running. When he added give-backs from unionized state employees, thereby alienating his most potent support group, he’s looking like a sure thing.

A budget no one loves is probably a good one

The Lakeville Journal Editorial

It is hard to imagine Connecticut citizens becoming so disenchanted with state finances that they would storm the Capitol in Hartford, like they’re doing in Wisconsin right now. But there’s a good chance people from opposing political camps will find many things to dislike about Gov. Dannel Malloy’s proposed budget. As the saying goes, if no one is satisfied with the proposal, it’s probably a good one.

About the China of Milt Caniff’s “Terry and the Pirates”

Investigative Cartooning

I watched carefully as the elderly tourists struggled with weighty luggage; they stumbled dangerously across the thick wooden ties of the vintage railroad bridge leading to the mainland from what was referred to as the northern (now) territories of Hong Kong. They were headed for a train that would continue their trip onto mainland China and though it was damned scary to me, they loved every minute of this retirement adventure.

Been there, done that, the result: 20 years of decline

The Chris Powell Column

Here we go again. Connecticut state government is far beyond broke as social conditions worsen. The governor wants huge tax increases and concessions from the state employee unions to restore solvency. The taxpaying class and the government class are at each other’s throats as the governor tries to split the difference.

Black history is American history

The Lakeville Journal Editorial

You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.

My changing world: wise to be optimistic

Guest Commentary

For Christmas my daughters gave me a jigsaw puzzle of the front page of The New York Times on the date of the famous “I Have a Dream” March on Washington (Aug. 28, 1963). I was proud of having gone on the march as a white person and proud of the subsequent Civil Rights Act of 1965, which I feel transformed our nation in great ways.
