In The Twilight Zone
The News Stories About Greenwich
In Greenwich there is the infamous case of the Millionaire Murder Mystery mystery. The prosecutor's claim that there is no longer a murder mystery and oddly announce that it was all "murder for hire" plot.
The Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time seem to be unaware of the shocking revelation.
Yet papers across the country are grabbing the story off the Associated Press News Wire. Maybe, the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time will cover the story tomorrow or Friday.
What about the contaminated Hamilton Avenue School Modular Classrooms?
Today Hamilton Avenue Parents release tests documenting sever mold contamination at Hamilton Avenue School to the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time.
Yet only the Greenwich Post immediately covers the "Breaking News" story. Maybe the Greenwich Citizen and the Greenwich Time will cover the story tomorrow or next week some time.
However if the Board Of Education puts out a press release the Greenwich Time is all over it.
Now lets look at the case of a contentious Greenwich Teacher's Aide contract.
The Greenwich Time covered the story, but the reporter only spoke to a school board member and not to parents, students and teachers aides.
Maybe if the Greenwich Citizen and Greenwich Post will finally cover the story and speak to all of the persons involved.

What Happened At Monday's Representative Town Meeting?
Well if you look at the Greenwich Citizen or Greenwich Post Websites, you would walk away with the impression that nothing news worthy occurred at the meeting.
There is not one story at either website about Monday's Representative Town Meeting.
If you look at the Greenwich Time website you would probably think that the RTM only dealt with the $30,000 Havemeyer building study.
RTM OKs study of Havemeyer
But Readers Of Greenwich Roundup Know Were Fully Informed About Every Issue That Was Raised At Monday's Representative Town Meeting.

It is clear that if a single family home-owner wants to be fully informed about what is happening with his tax dollars and town, he must take five minutes and read Greenwich Roundup every day.
If you rely solely on one of the other 'so-called" Greenwich news websites, then you will not be fully informed about what is really going on in town.
If you don't believe us then go take a look at the Greenwich Citizen's "news" website. The thing has not been updated in seven days.
Perhaps, we should organize a search party to locate the editor and reporters at the Greenwich Citizen.

The Greenwich Post Reports On
Monday's Representative Town Meeting
Monday to determine whether all of the senior center’s programming could be conducted in the Havemeyer Building or if could be divided between Havemeyer and its current location....
...RTM members narrowly defeated a motion to vote separately on the appropriation (a resolution that had been combined with other agenda items for voting purposes), 90 to 94, with three abstentions. The vote was 151 to 31.
Member Christine Edwards, who made the motion, suggested the money be used for other projects around town, such as paying for one instructional aide in the schools. She cautioned that only when the Board of Education completes its study of its space needs will it be seen how much space there could be for the senior center in the Havemeyer Building....
