George “Doc” Gunther–A Political Marvel–Transcended Politics

August 26th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Analysis and Comment, News and Events

George “Doc” Gunther could say just about anything to anyone and get away with it. It’s probably because he never concerned himself with choosing words carefully.

Will someone please send Jodi Rell an alarm clock so she can wipe the sleep from her eyes? She needs a wake-up call. Hopefully, one of the casualties of this economic free fall will not be Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, the state’s only zoo. Zoo Director Gregg Dancho is scrambling to gain public and legislative support to restore funds […]

The Heart Of Jan Williams

February 14th, 2009 · 7 Comments · Development and Zoning

Jan Williams is special: to me, to the city, to the waterfront oasis she created with her father Kaye enjoyed by thousands, Captain’s Cove Seaport. If her dad is a champion of renewal, Jan’s contributions are measured in her enthusiasm, generosity, and a warrior’s spirit to get things done for organizations such as Swim Across The Sound. […]
