Editor’s Note 9/7/2017

I have to say I am really excited about the page 1 story on Frosty Mug this week. I had the opportunity to participate in a ghost session in the basement of the restaurant with the team. It was both scary and exhilarating. We heard several voices including a scream. After about 20 minutes, I asked the spirits if they wanted me to leave. One said “yep”. I left immediately. I’m not defying any spirits.

If you want to see more about what was found at Frosty Mug, like the page ReConn Supernatural Syndicate on Facebook. You can see the plastic container flying across the counter and much more. The video is amazing.

I am certainly hoping to do some more ghost hunting in the future. It was something I will not soon forget. In the meantime, I have my Frosty Mug investigation on tape to listen to.

This week I must also comment on a story from last week. The complaint from Republican Chairman Tony Cane against the group Yellow Dog Strategies. It was not filed against the Democratic party, but it is interesting to note that the very next day, a complaint was filed against Mayor Erin Stewart by a member of the Democratic party.

More information about the complaint against the Mayor is in a letter to the editor on this page.

Our latest Top 10 is out. Where do you like to eat chicken? I like all kinds of chicken from fried, to Chinese to wings. See page 1 for the winners.

On page 3 it this month’s 15 Minutes of Fame. Residents had their chance to answer questions. I asked many people. Many did not want a photograph taken.

If you want to participate, email me at I will send you next month’s questions. I will need a photo.
