  5. Coast Guard Museum needs better locationRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday May 28 | The Day

    Neil Ruenzel's letter, ” Time to reconsider Coast Guard Museum location ,” , and David Collins' column, “ Can the Coast Guard museum be built downtown ?” , define problems with the proposed location of the U.S. Coast Guard Museum. The historical value of the Fort Trumbull USCG Station as the first location of the Coast Guard Academy make it an ideal spot for the museum location.


  6. Submarine Century section had glaring omissionRead the original story w/Photo

    May 2, 2016 | The Day

    The omission of the role of Fort Trumbull in submarine warfare in the April 10, Submarine Century enclosure was stunning. We might gloss over the early sonar and antisubmarine warfare work at Fort Trumbull going back to 1917, but leaving out the role of the Navy's Sound Laboratory, established in 1941, was a disservice to all those who worked at the "Sound Lab" over six decades. Perhaps the special section should have been named "Connecticut's Submarine Construction Century" because it seemed to ignore the technologies that allowed the submarine to execute its warfare mission successfully.

    New London - The ARM Cuauhtémoc, the Mexican Navy's training vessel, will visit the city May 2-6, Mayor Michael Passero has announced.

  8. Food stamp benefits end for some single adults in 82 Connecticut townsRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 4, 2016 | TheDay.Com

    Washington - Because the economy has improved in the towns where they live, thousands of Connecticut food stamp recipients lost their food stamp benefits beginning this month. The state's economic upturn in 82 towns, including Torrington, Stamford, Fairfield, Glastonbury and Trumbull, has resulted in childless, adult food stamp recipients who are unemployed - known as “Able Bodied Adults Without Dependents,” or ABAWD - to lose their benefits unless they got jobs, education or training for at least 20 hours a week.

  10. Fort Trumbull development: Do it right or not at allRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 25, 2016 | The Day

    Working with a new mayor perhaps too desperate to see some progress in the Fort Trumbull area, Rep. Ernest Hewett introduced complex state legislation ostensibly for the purpose of giving the city new taxing and bonding authority that could provide added incentives to attract development. The process was rushed.


  11. Rep. Hewett, unapologetic soldier for eminent domainRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 24, 2016 | The Day

    I defended Rep. Ernest Hewett back when he was under fire for suggesting to a young woman testifying before the General Assembly that he had a snake under his desk. I thought then, and I still believe, people misinterpreted his remark unfairly to make it sexual when it was meant to be a joke.


  12. Moving New London forwardRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 24, 2016 | The Day

    I write in response to the March 22 column by David Collins, “Hewett submits lobbyist's proposal for Fort Trumbull tax district.” People both in and outside of our great city often say: “Why can't the City of New London move forward? Why can't it take its place among the proud port cities that have been able to so fully revive such as Portland, Boston, Newport and Charleston?” Well, one answer for sure is due to people who take great ideas, even before they are fully put forth, and crush the life out of them, without giving them a chance.


  13. Hewett submits lobbyist's proposal for Fort Trumbull tax districtRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 22, 2016 | The Day

    It is hard to say exactly where the shock value of Rep. Ernest Hewett's proposed new legislation for New London's Fort Trumbull begins. It could be with the fact that the proposal, which would create a new taxing and bonding authority within the city, was slipped secretly into another bill, practically in the middle of the night.


  14. Mayor Passero fulfills a campaign pledgeRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 17, 2016 | The Day

    It is always refreshing to see a candidate, once elected, actually act on the positions he or she took during the campaign. In breathing new life into the New London development agency and boosting the prospects of finally achieving development in the Fort Trumbull area, Mayor Michael Passero has done exactly that.
