06/8/09 A Balanced Budget Needed Now

To The Editor.

A balanced budget offered by House Republicans on the final day of the legislative session was rejected by the Democrats by the use of an arcane parliamentary procedure. The House Republican budget would restore some proposed cuts and preserve all aid to cities and towns -- without raising taxes.

Municipalities throughout Connecticut continue in fiscal limbo, waiting for a budget that will allow them to know how much state aid to expect over the next two fiscal years. The governor and the Republicans asked the Democratic majority to pass a resolution in early May saying all municipalities would at least be flat-funded so they could adopt their own budgets. That was rejected.

Republicans presented their first budget for the next biennium on April 16. The supermajority party used a procedure that disallowed debate on the proposal. Ironically, after several weeks of saying the governor had done nothing to propose a budget reflecting the latest deficit forecasts, the Democratic supermajority voted down its own budget proposal that would raise taxes by $3.3 billion.

Under the Republican budget, no parks would be closed and towns would not be forced to pay more for their resident state troopers. No additional courthouses would be shut and modified grants for tourism and culture would remain.

Features in the Republican budget include:

$350 million of lottery earnings securitized, no Keno gambling.

Transitioning state employee health care from fully insured to self-insured.

Using $28 million in federal stimulus to fund special education.

The modified biennial budget would show a $37 million surplus in each of the two years.

As the state continues without a budget, the deficit increases. The state has done nothing to make systemic cuts in services, employees or departments at a time when tax revenue is decreasing, and if the state does not have a new budget by July 1, it will be forced to fund itself month by month, through temporary budget resolutions. Otherwise, the state runs out of money.

We need leadership during this fiscal crisis. We need to do the people's business today, which means adopting a fiscally sound budget.

06/09/09 ANOTHER BAD IDEA FROM HEARST NEWSPAPERS: Greenwich Time Wants Regional Bloggers Instead Of Local Blogger

Who Is Going To Read This Crap?

Is Greenwich Time Editor David McCumber On Drugs?

The Worst Blogs on the Web Are At The Greenwich Time

Hearst Connecticut Media Group Interactive "Executive Producer" Keith Whamond Is Definately On Some Kind Of Drug If He Thinks Greenwich Residents Are Going To Be Interested In Reading These Boring And Hyper Regional Hearst Newspaper Blogs

Dear Greenwich Time Readers,

To all our readers at the Greenwich Time, welcome to the Connecticut Media Group’s brand-spanking-new blogging platform. We think you’re going to like it.

We’ve got blogs about our favorite restaurants, about parenting in 2009 and about toxic soil in our communities. From high school bands to the New York Yankees, and pumpkins in Hartford, we have our communities covered.

But we’re just getting started.

Here’s the pitch: We think there are tons of stories to be told within Fairfield County — far more than any one newsroom could ever tell. So we’re reaching out to you to help get those stories told.

If you live in Fairfield County, we want our blogs to be the place you go to stay in touch with the world around you. And we can’t do it without you.

We want you to help us. Send me an e-mail below. Let me know your blog idea, a brief sample of your writing style and, most important, what aspect of Fairfield County you’d like to write about — our music, food, sports, health, technology, traffic and commuting, barbecuing, bars, whatever. Together with our first-class journalists, your blog will help get these stories told.

If you’d like the chance to get featured prominently on four Web sites that together average over 9 million page views a month, drop me a line.

We’re looking forward to reading about you.

Keith Whamond

Executive Producer
Hearst Connecticut Media Group Interactiveo:


Here are the Greenwich Time blogs that depressed - er, uh - impressed us the most with their lameness.

For every real innovative and inspiring Greenwich based blog, there is at least one Hearst Newspaper fake blog that is a dreadful alternative.

This is what happens traditional media outlet trying to to enter the digital age by putting out a new blog and pretending to be citizen journalists..

It is painful to watch clueless Hearst Newspaper media members trying to latch onto this new form of information distribution.

Hearst Newspaper's MSM (MainStream Media) Blogs haven’t been executed very well by Keith Whamond.

Without Further delay here’s some of the worst blogs we've come across that are run by any media outlet or media members…

These HYPER-REGIONAL Greenwich Time Blogs Are Just Plain Pitiful

The Greenwich Time website is just becoming a vast wasteland of bull crap.

These Greenwich Time blogs are so blatantly unnecessary in the Blogosphere that you wonder why the Hearst Newpaper President Steven Swartz hasn't just shut the whole operation down and call it a day.
