Igor, a stick of dynamite leaves a pretty good crater. M-80s (not legal in many years, but stillRead Morepop up) are very, very loud. There are new salutes made now as well that are much louder than what was for sale years ago. There are key differences between high explosives (dynamite) and low explosives (fireworks). But, simply, high explosives break windows, low explosives shake windows, regardless of how loud either is. I agree, loud stuff this year. Living next to public space, with a baby, it's a hassle. But I love America too, and don't want to rain on anyone else's parade or method of celebration. Frankly, I don't see how the police are going to catch anyone that sets them off unless they are setting them off in the same place continuously. Further, what will they do when they arrive? They certainly aren't pyrotechnic experts. Should they carry forensic kits to determine whether residues are nitro glycerine or flash powder based? All they can do is yell at people, maybe write a ticket if they witness something directly. Fairfield Police already have a serious problem with public relations. Let's not encourage them to continue to escalate situations; they do far too much of that already. Also, happy Independence Day Igor! I hope you are enjoying this morning as much as I am. The weather is beautiful, and all is quiet (around here anyway) as the revelers sleep off yesterday's shenanigans.

It's a great day living in the greatest country in the world (yes we have problems, but it's stillRead Moreb etter than any other country). Actually I'm a little grumpy today. I was up late last night waiting for the explosions to stop. I just want a little consideration for others. Whether it's fireworks, driving,taking misbehaving children to restaurants. I think after 11:00 pm is a little late to be setting them off. This was the same house, night after night every year. It lights up the sky.

Don't stop at commercial signs, get rid of the tag sale sign. Some have been up for weeks. TheRead Moreaddre ss is right there so it won't be too hard to find them. They blow off the poles and litter all over. BTW will this include the political signs that pop up before elections?

Oh no! How will all of the 200 Cross Fit studios in town survive now?

We went to see "America, Imagine the World Without Her" Wednesday. It was both inspiringRead Morea nd highly educational, with beautiful cinematography of our national parks, monuments and stunning scenes from "sea to shining sea." From the unique perspective of a legal immigrant and citizen, Dinesh D'Souza, one can learn much as well as become more aware of and grateful for the blessings of being an American.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------We were also educated as to some of the threats to our Nation, and our Liberties, from sources within our boundaries. Those threats include people such as Bill Ayers, the followers of Saul Alinsky (including Obama and Hillary), and the specious and incomplete 'history' of our nation, taught in our public schools, from the textbook by Communist Howard Zinn.

D'Souza's "2016: Obama’s America" is now the world’s #2 top grossingRead Moredocumenta ry of all time, for good reason--after the devastation wreaked upon our Nation by the disastrous current occupant of the WH.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------D'Souza's "America: Imagine the World Without Her" has gross Box Office receipts of over 4 Million $$ in the first 3 DAYS, just through Friday. It should be seen by all Americans, especially those who want truth, and those who care about all of our futures--around the world, not just here in the U.S.!

One character in the movie is Alexis de Tocqueville, who brilliantly assessed and describedRead MoreAmerican Exceptionalism. Here are a few of his best quotes:--------------------------------------------------------"America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”-----------------------------------“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.”----------------------------------------------------------------------------------“Americans are so enamored of equality, they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.”

Good Point !!!!!! If we had a Park Ranger assigned none of this would have happened---I worryRead Moreabout the eventual drowning at the un supervised North end---Signs don't cut it an Actual Ranger would help

Nancy, I never said that I've seen you. ALL people up there need to FOLLOW THE RULES and BERead MoreMOR E CONSIDERATE. If you see someone fishing, don't let your dog run in the water where he's fishing just like if I saw you playing with your dog, I wouldn't fish right next to you. And if a person can't control their dog or otherwise follow the rules, they shouldn't be there.

Why not post some of the police Specials who stand around kibitzing all morning at the FairfieldRead Moretra in station?
Joeseph Biff June 27, 2014 at 07:11 AM
I believe the Police Chief also rents an apartment in town.Where is the outrage about this from the Read Morecitizens of Fairfield? All done AFTER the new budget was passed.
Joe Mancini June 30, 2014 at 03:51 PM
Biff-What do you propose?
Joeseph Biff June 30, 2014 at 08:12 PM
What I propose Mancini is quite simple.Do not give them raises! If they are unhappy with theirRead Moresala ries, they can just pack up and go to some other town and see what kind of deal they get. They can all be replaced Mancini, just like you or me. If they are due a raise under a union contract, that's a different story I suppose. The all mighty' Fire Chief 'got a $2,990.00 increase, bringing his salary to $152,483.00.Then just a few days ago, he announced he is retiring. Does he still get his raise? Will it increase his pension? If so, I'd say that was awful good timing on his part!

Excuse me but don't you think you should already know how to clear and lock a firearm before youRead Moreown it?

Igor RIGHT AGAIN !!!!!! I don't care how many NEW Laws they pass or Ads THEY create theRead MoreMORON's and the Illegal owners will not comply!!!!! So AGAIN the Legal owners will get Pounded while the others "Skate" Do you Really think this will change things???? What about the Idiots that drive their cars in reckless manner???7 \

Yes, "why do people keep re-electing a self-righteous buffoon like Rosa DeLauro?" IRead Moreu rge everyone who "believe[s] in returning our govt to the People—YOU!" to help elect James Brown to replace this incompetent and CORRUPT Career Politician! Please share this article with everyone you know in New Haven and the 3rd district towns.

Personal attacks don't make your baseless argument any more attractive, Kevin. DeLauro's wealthRead Morewoul d be affected by the policies she and her fellow Democratic leaders support - anyone with half a brain should recognize that isn't what one would call catering to her own self-interests. Now, virtually every Congressional Republican millionaire - Darryl Issa comes to mind - who fights against closing the wealthiest tax loopholes SHOULD actually be called out for protecting the 1% and their own self-interests. Because they are. You want to attack Delauro on jobs? It takes a majority to vote for a JOBS bill, instead of blocking it -- which the Congressional Republican majority did. Putting Americans and our war vets back to work didn't fit the partisan wrangling the Republicans in Congress seem to crave. Instead, the focus is on spending our tax dollars to 'investigate' for the 13th time the Benghazi tragedy, because they still can't find anything more than the 4 independent reviews we signed on for found and addressed. Yet another taxpayer-funded conspiracy-fueled investigation to distract us from the fact that the ACA is working. And about those much needed jobs that the Republicans promised us in their 2010 and 2012 campaigns? Well, Chris would blame the minority vote in Congress for that. This is how it works for people who don't want to face reality, apparently.

I see you got your D.N.C. talking points memo today,eh ragamuffin? Your're nothing but a deludedRead MoreOba mazombie. Your hero is a borderline war criminal.His poll numbers are going down faster than the Chivas at Ted Kennedy's house. You sound like a paid troll for DeLauro.
