It is an interesting paper this week with news in many areas.

First we look at a complaint. Election time is a difficult one and brings with it a lot of emotions. I’m not sure exactly what to think of this one. It is against a firm rather than a candidate. It will be interesting to see how it develops.

On page 1 is an article about Mike Karwan who is leaving the senior center after 24 years. People there truly love him. He will be missed. I hope the next director does as good of a job as him. He was always great to work with for me.

Main Street USA is coming. It seems each year it gets bigger. I would not be surprised if one day it is expanded to last two days. It is New Britain’s version of a fair. A slide and ferris wheel have been added this year. It would be great to have even more rides.

The bands look spectacular this year and fireworks are always a big draw. I may even take a helicopter ride this year.

What is your favorite part of the event?

High Voltage Art is certainly becoming quite the thing in this City. More and more boxes are being painted. I love the designs. They really brighten up the City. See more on page 3.

Kids went back to school this week. It still seems early to me. The summer goes by so fast and the winter drags. Good luck to all students!

We started a gofundme campaign for the Halloween Safe Zone. Please help us out. Even $5 or $10 can make a difference. We want to keep this special event going for the kids. About 5,000 people attend and it continues to grow. Look for it on Facebook or call us at 860-505-7612 to make a donation.

Time for a joke. I have two for you this week.

“Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted.”

And

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him. (Oh, man, this is so bad, it’s good…) A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Until next week, find me a few more jokes, and keep reading New Britain’s #1 Most Trusted Newspaper!
