Job well done


Thank you, Durham Highway Department for an outstanding job clearing my road after many large trees barricaded us, preventing the utility company from entering. You worked tirelessly clearing roads through the week for Durham residents to resume power.

Joe Fontanella, Durham



I wish to express my sincere thanks to the voters of Meriden, Middlefield and Rockfall who supported me in the Republican primary on Aug. 11. I am humbled, honored and excited to be the official Republican candidate for the 82nd House District.

During the primary, I met with many of you who are concerned about taxes, the economy and the way the state is run. You elected me to change the way things are done at the Capitol and I vow to do that.

As the general election campaign begins, I ask you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. The pandemic has made this an unusual election year and I want to connect with voters as often as possible. You may reach me at skelps@gmail.com or at 860-604-2310.

Michael Skelps, Middlefield

Take off the masks


Mark Czaja’s letter is right on target. What do our intuition and feelings tell us about COVID-19? What do we long for?

Humans and animals need nourishment (organic non-GMO food, clean water), touching and hugging, the ability to see eachother’s faces for communication, and love.

Masks and social distancing separate us, prevent important gatherings and close communication, increase respiratory disease by lowering inhaled oxygen, increase anxiety and make us fear and police eachother. 

If you cherish our past way of life, love high-tech stuff, can’t live without our iPhones, are enchanted with TV, believe government has our best interests at heart, think college is worth the money, can’t live without drama and fear death and societal change, go ahead and get tested and vaccinated. And enjoy increasing slavery and loss of freedoms in the name of safety.

A growing number of us have chosen a spiritual path, avoid mainstream media, decline vaccines, meditate frequently, become spiritually enlightened and prefer lives of love, compassion and cooperation.

We believe in our intuitive guidance for all aspects of living.

Our families, activities and safety are in our own hands, not the state’s.

Each of us must choose between fear and love every moment of every day. Take off the masks and hug eachother!

Sue McIntosh MD, Durham
