The statistics behind this article seem extremely flimsy to make such strong accusations.

The graph can be interpreted in a number of ways. It lacks a lot of information. To me, it saysRead MoreWest port has a much higher, but steady, rate of killing its deer. The Lyme rate fell after a while. Both the killing rate and the Lyme rate are higher than those of Redding. The deer kills have decreased in Redding, and so has the Lyme rate. Redding started lower than Westport, and remains that way. Is there a conclusion to be drawn here?

WOW ! Wait till DEEP Wildlife sees this.......Their own numbers; Maybe when the town ofRead MoreRedding , CT officials see this they will realize they are headed in the wrong direction. Westport, CT has shown the other towns the importance of living with nature and not destroying it.

For a variety of reasons, including the fact that the proposed changes to the Senior Benefit do not Read Morereally "grandfather" taxpayers who will turn 65 in 2014-2016, I will not support the change in the ordinance. The Senior Benefit, originally intended to provide relief to older folks and permit them to remain in town thereby avoiding pressure upon Redding's school age population, has served the Town well since 1975. Linking the eligibility age, as has been done, to the age of eligibility for full Social Security retirement benefits, makes little sense. Each of these programs has different purposes and rationales. Furthermore, the biennial reapplication process makes little sense if compliance is the reason for such a ministerial change. I urge seniors to attend Monday night's meeting and to participate fully in the discussion. I ran for office last year on a platform of no change in the current Senior Benefit policy, and I meant it. While I have no problems with updating ordinance language to comport with statutory changes, or stepped up enforcement done on a reasonable basis, I do not support fundamental changes in a policy that has served us well for four decades.

Since the year 2000, the town's budget has increased by 138%. The school district budget has risenRead Moreb y 95%. This is an unsustainable trajectory for the private sector. The government will continue to increase its budget as long as we allow it. 'The power to tax is the power to destroy'.
