I stopped reading months ago because of the trolling, name calling, and garbage. Well, tonight I thought I would check in and see if anything had changed.
Nope - same old nonsense. Even the same people (everyone knows who they are) are at it. I would imagine that you have lost a lot of readers because of this. Some of us would like to see some intelligent dialogue or posting. I won't be back for a long time. View Comment
You know, I stopped visiting this site several months ago because I was sick of the idiots: no need to name them, everyone knows who they are.
Tonight I thought I would give it a chance again. Nothing has changed. Not much intelligent dialogue, but a lot of garbage.
Whoever manages this site should try to change this. I would imagine you've lost a lot of other readers.
I won't be back. View Comment
Whoever manages this forum should please take down the ranting and tantrums of these lunatics. It decreases the legitimacy of this site, wastes real readers' time, and encourages stupidity.
Also, Daily Voice, stop mentioning the killer's name. It could encourage some other sick, sad, disaffected man/boy to do a similar horrific act to try and become Someone. the Hour's article this morning said his name a dozen times. Each one makes me ill. View Comment
Who the hell cares????? I have to agree with the previous posters. There are so many important things going on in the world. Who cares that this priviliged rich boy from the UK is here playing with his horsie? View Comment
I was a teacher during the Sloan years. He showed up to preach a sermon at the church I attended, he would be at the concerts or shows around town, and I can remember him way back at the Silvermine School pancake breakfast. One day, I was at a workshop in Stamford. He recognized me as a Norwalk teacher, and made a point of saying hello. He didn't know my name, but he knew I belonged to the system.
The personal touch meant a lot. View Comment
I have had the privilege of working with Cristy at Jefferson School. She can do anything she sets her mind to.
We are so happy to have her at Jefferson, and we're thrilled that she has gone back to college. View Comment
I would love it, but Trader Joe's would be foolish to put a store there. They have stores in Westport and Darien, just north and south of this spot. Why out in a third and dilute everyone's business?
Home Goods and TJ Maxx are under the same parent company, so I don't see that happening wi a store there already.
Perhaps exorbitant rent is the reason we lost Zeytinia's. They were wonderful, and now the place has been vacant for a couple of years, too. View Comment
Imagine what the poor kids are going through now, and what they have already seen. Having grown up with a mom with substance abuse issues, I pray for them.
We should all be glad the police were called. Perhaps this will make her get some help. She could have killed or hurt lots of innocent people. View Comment
I am so sick of getting a box full of junk mail, fliers, and unsolicited cards. Maybe there a dozen pieces of 'real' mail for my home in a month, the rest is garbage. Our letter carrier just shoves it in.
I rarely mail anything, and try to avoid the Post Offices at any cost. It's a miserable experience. All my bills are paid online - it's free, efficient, and convenient.
I won't miss it at all. View Comment
You are so right! Unfortunately we must restrict access. Gym doors in some schools are open and unattended for HOURS at a time. They must always be locked. Adults can man the door during morning entry, after that everyone must use the main doors. Doorbells can be installed for before/after school programs; doorbells that must be manually opened by an adult.
Another issue is droves of parents walking in with kids in the morning, or slipping in afternoons and walking about the buildings. No more. We cannot give unrestricted access to anyone. This is sad, but true. View Comment
No one has made the decision to close the schools - it is called being prepared. It's so easy for armchair critics to throw stones. How would you like to be The administrator responsible for sending 4, 5, or 600 little children out on buses in the middle of a hurricane, through the heavily treed roads of Silvermine or Cranbury? Or would you want your child or grandchild stuck in the school gymnasium, possibly without power, if there was no way to get them home?

There must be someone to it when this idiot is arrested three times in three days! And I am sure he wasn't trying to catch the Wheels bus to go to church.
Same on the courts if they let him out again. View Comment
