03/08/10 Reader Submitted Comments About The Cos Cob Power Plant

How can the Town of Greenwich allow a soccer field to be built under these high tension power lines?

Connecticut State laws will not allow these types of power lines to be built over or next to a school.

Our little children and pregnant soccer moms will suffer under these power lines.

Who is going to measure the EMF radiation?

Please go to the Planning and Zoning meeting on Tuesday night and say no to the soccer field at the old Cos Cob power plant.

03/08/09 The Himes Times: A Critical Step


It has been a very long year working on comprehensive health care reform. Over 60 town halls and health care events, much discussion, and historic votes in the House and the Senate have led us to where we are now. And if you haven't seen this recent report on Anthem's drastic increases in Connecticut - state regulators approving a 20% increase after Anthem requested a 32% increase - I recommend you look into it. It shows we need comprehensive reform now more than ever.

As we come closer to passing health care reform, I wanted to highlight a crucial victory we achieved in the House of Representatives two weeks ago - repealing the anti-trust exemption that health care companies have enjoyed for so long. This act will improve choice and competition for health care consumers across the board, leading to better decisions and better care. The unfair exemption drives up costs and, left unchecked, will ensure that we continue to pay too much for too little when it comes to our health care.

We must celebrate important moments like this. It was anticipation of these victories - truly changing the way Washington works and helping middle class families - that drove me to campaign for Congress three years ago. We have now empowered regulators to hold health care insurers accountable for their actions and righted a long-standing wrong.

But you know as well as I do that the death-panel promoters and the obstructionists will come after me this election year for these very same victories. That's why I'm glad to have the support of key groups like Students for a New American Politics PAC, which just granted me their early endorsement. Most importantly, I'm glad to enter this election year with you on my side to share these victories and gird ourselves for the next fight.

The Latest News About Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei

What Is The First Selectman Afraid Of?

His Constituents?

Visiting the selectmen's office? Say the magic password ...
Open-door access to the leadership of the town, a hallmark of
First Selectman Peter Tesei's administration, isn't what it used to be.

Visitors to the selectmen's office suite at Town Hall must now be buzzed in by the receptionist, using a recently installed red telephone outside the front door. A video camera was also mounted on the ceiling above the phone to give Tesei's aides a birds-eye view of callers on closed-circuit television.

Access is also gained by key cards issued to town employees and some elected officials ...

...."There's been some disgruntled people, but nothing I would say that precipitated it," said Tesei. "I'm down in my office. I don't hear who comes in. It gives some semblance of order to it."....
