Commentary

Editor’s Note 1/22/2016

Well, all the good weather we had is a memory. The very cold conditions and now snow in the forecast, truly means winter has arrived. It was nice while we had it, but that has changed. I already can’t wait for May.

I did not win Powerball last week. I bet you didn’t either. On page 3 we asked our Facebook group members what they would do if they won. I loved the answers. People in this City truly want to help one another. We may be Hard Hittin’, but we are also caring. That is what makes New Britain great.

This week I went to the City commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It is such a nice event. I am so glad we take a day to honor Dr. King. He was truly an inspiration for us all. I feel like he did more for the country than almost any other person. He has always been one of my idols. I want to thank the human rights and opportunities commission for the great event.

It is budget season again. It seems like it almost always is. I’m still hoping not to see an increase this year. The mill rate will not go down (so don’t dream about that), but remaining stable is a good thing. Keep your fingers crossed.

We also, have a great story about the Sanders Family. It is fantastic when you see a devoted family to our City like them. See page 1.

I want to thank those who came to our solar seminar last week. Another is being planned for February. You can always call 860-357-1091 to set up an appointment. There is no need to call the company direct. There is no cost and no obligation to meet. January is a good time because you will have it up by the Spring. Start thinking about saving money and the earth now. You will be glad you did.

Also, we are open to fundraisers. You or your group can make $200 per house that goes solar. Give me a call for more information. It is very easy.

I found a joke on Facebook this week that is great for all you superhero fans.

“My boss said don’t dress for the job you have. Dress for the job you want. Now, I am sitting in a disciplinary meeting dressed like Batman.”

I guess that is not exactly what the boss meant.

Until next week, dress accordingly, and keep reading YOUR #1 Most Trusted New Britain Newspaper!
