More tree vandalism

This weekend we noticed two newly planted trees at Quinnipiac River Park that have been snapped off. I suggest that we all talk with people who use the park, express concern and outrage, and find out how those trees can be quickly replaced. Any other ideas? That's two of our parks suffering from fatal damage to young trees!

So I sent a letter to the editor (see below). I hope others do the same.

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…
