"For now, nobody wants to go to Fair Haven"

“I’d like to see a cruise ship port. In most states with a waterfront like this, there would be a mall and tourist attractions,” Clarke said. “But for now, nobody wants to go to Fair Haven. I hope people will get over the fear factor and come take a look.”… Continue

We simply send carefully trained and screened adults into the community to be with kids right where they are. Our average… Continue

I was really upset by an article in this week's New Haven Advocate (June 3) that describes our neighborhood in a very negative light. The best way to solve our problems is to get more good people to move into this area--and that's not going to happen if our public image is mired in stereotypes. So I sent a letter to the editor (see below). I hope others do the same.

The Issue of traffic, driving, and mature citizens.

Traffic control, specifically speeding, has been a priority for the CSNA. I read with interest an article published in WSJ concerning the issue of mature citizens, their driving abilities, and associated travel expense. I thought this article, which I have attached, might be an interesting resource to the community in relation to our concerns about traffic. This article might also be of interest to those grappling with the issue of driving and aging parents.

I also want…

Disney's Ratatouille taught me last night in Lewis Park that Anybody Can Write...

Another community, open air movie night was a success. There were many families with kids who showed in Lewis Park on Saturday night to watch Disney's Ratatouille. It is arguable who had more fun watching adventures of the little rat who desperately wanted to become a chef... children or adults? I definitely enjoyed the… Continue
