Saving Winsted’s paper

Last week brought the news that the Winsted Citizen, a monthly newspaper with a goal to become a weekly and started by Winsted’s own Ralph Nader, was throwing in the towel. It had produced nine issues starting in February. That was Monday. By Wednesday, it became a rescue story.

Thankful for FOI

This week it’s traditional to consider the things in life for which we’re most grateful. Along with all the more personal items, we should also count the strong Freedom of Information laws in Connecticut as one of them.

In the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, almost nine out of ten households had access — at all times — to enough food for an “active, healthy life for all household members.” That was in 2022.

Hello Autumn

A few weeks ago we were saying goodbye to summer. School had started. Summer vacations had concluded. It was an in-between time to look back at a full season of outdoor events and activities.

Your newspaper, your letters
