Bear Spotted In Hartford's North End

Bear Spotted In Hartford's North End

the majority of the stories published about our state's capitol are regarding drugs, stabbings, shootings and crime in general (including it's wonderful ex- gang banging leader). maybe when the hartford courant consistently has something positive to write about the city o fartford, we'll lighten up. until then you are the one acting sofa king we todd it.  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #17)

10-Year-Old Boy Charged With Arson In Hartford Fire

his mom was probably getting ready for her g.e.d./high school gradutation. he probably doesn't know who his father is and his 35 year old grandmother was busy helping his mom get ready for her big party. and THAT is probably why he got the sparklers in the first place.  (Jun 17, 2009 | post #38)

Popular '80s West Hartford Music Hall To Be Demolished

and let's not forget john valvey - the prince of porn. back in the days when there was no such thing as political correctness and thin skinned people. that was a kick off place for a lot of groups just breaking onto the music scene. i still have my old scrapbook with ticket stubs and autographs from that place!!!!  (Jun 14, 2009 | post #57)

Popular '80s West Hartford Music Hall To Be Demolished

i saw so many shows there from thin lizzy to men without hats. i was there when wendy o blew up the caddy. not to mention all the times playing hacky sack waiting for max creek to take the stage. funny thing: never once was there a shooting or a murder there. yeah, there were fights among drunken fools, but that was it-never feared for my safety. so long to a lot of memories!  (Jun 14, 2009 | post #38)

Hartford Shooting Victim Dies

you should be proud of yourself and your son. you kept him from becoming a statistic because you did your job-you were his mother. you paid attention to what he was doing in school, in your neighborhood and with his friends. you taught him the value of hard work, respect for himself and respect for others. you played an active role in his life. too many parents (single or otherwise) are too consumed with their own lives to pay attention to what's going on in their own home. parent/teacher conferences for them are an inconvenience. most of them don't know who their kids hang out with, where they hang out or what they do. it's called moral decay. when you have babies raising babies and fathers being replaced by grandmothers that are in their late 30s or early 40s, we have a problem.
