NrwlkCT good point. They all got what they wanted Norwalks response time didn't change a bit taxpayers got what they deserve.Shame we didn't read about why the station went back where it was otherwise the State would be opening a building with a great tax base for the city.City hall has no memory on the facts do they.

“While we cannot predict what the service needs are in 20 or 50 years, we have prudently designed in additional office, firefighter and equipment space into the building
Where does the new fire dept ambulances go?
Would of been nice to plan on the next 20 years,its time for McCarthy to get a new crystall ball while the rest of us live the here and now.What about trucks and more manpower and more supplies for our first responders the police dept?
$50,000 this to have two free fireboats in the water this year anyone know why?Out police dept does a very good job over the years what did they get?
Time for Bob to pass out ice cream? View Comment
Lets thank Bob Duff for all the help he has given the Lobstermen.A few articles one from John Nickerson of the Advocate tell us our reps in the State house has done very little to help our fishermen out.I must of missed Bobs soundbite on this a very visible problem Norwalk has. View Comment
Top story should of been Duff Perone and Morris selling Norwalkers out over this endorsement.Those who know the facts all realize it wasn't the best choice .Their poor judgement will follow them next election this was certaily a step backwards for Norwalk.Now I will vote for Moccia.Better to vote for the evil we know than the one we don't.The three wide men have let us all down.The good ole boys club still exists in both parties.New voters will be schooled (urban distionary) and it will be spelled out what has gone on over the years.

For those who have never been to Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia its worth the trip.They have a space center where you first go thru a short movie before you tour the visitor center.Doesn't cost a dime and it was interesting to say the least.We found it when we went to Chincoteague and if your firefighter you may know about the wild ponies and the firefighters carnival each year late in July that also is worth the trip and its right down the street from NASA.The beach is also one of a kind where the Assateague lighthouse is another spot to find yourself enjoying the coastline.This was the second launch in the past two months from there and unless you have been in the area its been one of the best kept secrets for years.

This is all good,maybe they can add a few more things that will let us parents know whats going on.In the last several years busses have been involved in shootings or have been hit etc. this is cutting edge for Norwalk maybe it can help makes things safer.Even as a shooting happens,bus routes are diverted hence making our kids late.Poor Mr Corda was always the last to know what happened at his schools or on his busses when Harry was in charge.This new tool may help us parents out,the Moccia team never really seemed to respond well to us when it came to shootings and school incidents while letting out.I'd hate to see history repeat itself using the good ole boys club for our childrens safety.

"they align themselves with the Democrats" oh like Duff Perone and Morris with the Republicans.Jim has failed Norwalk in so many ways he is a politician not a problem solver.Jim got Moccia a fire boat for the fire vote the taxpayers got the shaft from Jim.Jim gave us BS and the taxpayers got the free boat that has cost the city over 50 grand for the first year what was free Jim?
Jim just wrote us asking what we think about Syria what about Norwalk JIm ask us about something that matters.Its a disgrace a slap in the face to all who have served our country if we stand by and allow this type of behavior then again look at crime in Norwalk might be safer serving oversees than to walk to downtown Sono at night.I have dealt with Jim he looks right thru you when your talking to him smiles and blocks out the problems and then the solutions to solve them and tells you he cares.Its all about the numbers what we need to do is replace many deadbeat politicians.Sad way to treat someone who once said he is here to help.Wait till he comes to Norwalk stumping for the three wise men,it won't last long the three have split Norwalk apart there is uncertain times in Norwalk making it nice that Jim may reroute himself and spare us his crap.Good luck Dan those you save in Norwalk may be Democrtas after all.
Its a good thing none of the victims had medical conditions that would of prevented them from exiting the building any sooner.From the sounds of it smoke alarms would of been worth their weight in Gold. View Comment
Can't blame the Daily these two men who were driving a $50,000 dollar car havn't been given names in any of the media its only been three days.This accident must of cost a lot in overtime and services from fire police and Norwalk hospital.It was suggested by those who live in the area accidents happen all the time costing the city more in the long run.I do hope the two have a speedy recovery and help us make this a safe interesection.Maybe one of the five running for Mayor would look into this interesection and see if rumor is right about its danger.

This would seem to be a good time to hear what our State rep is doing about school voilence and the plans on making it safe for our children here in Norwalk.In the past communication has always lacked among all concerned parties when trouble hits our schools our kids always seems to get the short end of the stick.

Hey Ken won't have to wait until next week for the brawl at Black Bear,seems our officers were out numbered when a fight broke out on them in front of the bar.Seems force was used to stop the voilence in Sono few were arrested.This is going to help Norwalks image?Have to thank our state rep for making it possible to keep these bars open without police details while they pay less in electric bills.No one ever thinks about the taxpayers do they?

#5 Norwalks NEON Halfway house draws trouble once again in South Norwalk,where is our Mayor,State reps and police dept on what should be done to control the problems in and around the halfway house?Its located among the schools children and churches of South Norwalk isn't it time Norwalk understands how these places operate in Norwalk?State MONEY gets spent here yet no State dollar is given to protect and monitor these areas of concern?Shots fired blood found is when the Halfway house was invloved this week a room to room search of one of the building yes there are more facts not shared.Gunshots are heard all the time on South Norwalk has our politicians turned down their hearing aids as well?Time for a change?Without a doubt.
Bet next week the bar fight in Sono this morning will probably be on the top five next week along with the deatails on the arrests.
Smoke Alarms should be on a list as well,the Fire Dept has sent out a great door hanger promoting free smoke alarms.203 854 0244 was the number given for a free detector.I never saw it in the media shame who ever did it has a good handle on the message.
This kind of trouble is normal for the city at closing.We have to thank people like Moccia and Duff for promoting bars and drinking holes in the city making it easier to run a business while sucking the cities services clean.Its nice that some politicians find saving these places from paying higher operating costs yet the city own management plans along with the States seems to go unoticed by phot op politicians.Norwalkers are realizing having a bar instead of a place like the candy or clothing stores etc are likely to give Norwalk a bad reputation.Elections are coming the choices are clear to clean up the city we first have to clean our political reps View Comment
you can get rid of my post but you can,t get rid of me,watch TOPIX maybe the war will be fought there.The article missed many facts the politiian has missed the point.Cable is a great outlet the politician isn't. View Comment
Two lanes when you come into Ct from RI opens into 6 by New London back doen to two by Niantic opens up to to three by Madison then to four by New haven down to two opens up Bridgeport to 4 down to two by Westport and stays two until Stamford and opens up to three and then down to two to NY.Norwalk got longer off ramps did they by any chance get another lane? Maybe Norwalks going to get what every one else has at the Rt 7 interchange that may help.Does Norwalk have anyone in the State house who can work transportation issues?
I have to wonder if Deering caused any of those accidents when they worked on the ramps and the streets? Some of us think there is a few they can take credit for. View Comment
