  2. Take Air Conditioners Off Governor's Mansion RoofRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jul 7 | The Hartford Courant

    If this country can explore outer space, put a camera in a phone and power a plane with animal fats, why can't we cool the upper floors of a lovely historic home without putting large, unsightly condensers on the roof?

The home in question is the governor's residence at 990 Prospect Ave. in Hartford's West End, which recently had four large air conditioning units installed on the roof. Neighbors complain that the condensers, which rise about 41/2 feet from the roofline, detract from the appearance of the 106-year-old Georgian Colonial mansion - which they do - and that the state didn't follow historic preservation guidelines in executing the project.

  10. Gina Barreca: Kickstarting A Wedding Is Doing It WrongRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 9, 2015 | The Hartford Courant

    Proms, graduation parties, weddings: Do these rites of passage still signal the way our culture celebrates life's significant moments? Or have the events associated with such occasions become an increasingly contorted way of assessing, judging and competing with those closest to us?
