Today I am thrilled for both Peter Schiff and Rick Torres---but even more for the PEOPLE!! I agree totally with Schiff's endorsement of Torres, quoted above.

And now, "the people" WILL decide---as both will be in the Primary on Aug. 10th!

"Schiff, Merkle, Torres get on primary ballots"

HARTFORD -- "Peter Schiff, the Weston financial analyst , will be on the Aug. 10 primary ballot for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz announced Monday.

"During a news conference in the Capitol, she said that local registrars through the state said he gathered more than 8,600 signatures.

"Also, Rob Merkle and Rick Torres qualified to run in the 4th Congressional District Republican primary against state Sen Dan Debicella, R-Shelton, the endorsed candidate."...

"Schiff obtained about 400 more signatures than needed to reach the threshold of 2 percent of enrolled members of the GOP in the state."

Greenwich probes bear sighting (Connecticut Post)
Despite a reported black bear sighting near the Merritt Parkway Thursday, Greenwich animal control officers said they were not able to locate the animal after sending two officers out to search the area.

Calling All Patriots: Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele Will Attend July 4th Event At Greenwich Town Hall Greenwich will recognize its roots — at the seventh annual Fourth of July celebration at Town Hall this Sunday at 9 a.m.
Bea Crumbine and co-organizer Jennifer Larkin want to make sure everyone remembers and reflects on the fact that Greenwich was on the front lines of the Revolutionary War.
The Sound Beach Community Band will play patriotic tunes. Thirteen Boy Scouts will march in carrying the flags of the 13 original colonies. The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich's Honor Guard will raise a replica of the Betsy Ross flag donated by Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Pray.
Children of the American Revolution will lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. Noel Valentine will recite the poem "The Flag'.
Girl and Boy Scouts will read selections from the Declaration of Independence. The names of the 16 citizen soldiers from Greenwich killed in the Revolutionary War will be read aloud and honored, names familiar to local residents — Mead, Palmer, Reynolds, Lockwood, Knapp. And 23 of their surviving descendants will be on hand.
The Greenwich Police Honor Guard will fire its cannon and Ms. Crumbine said there might even be a 21-gun salute.
Honored dignitaries in attendance will include Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, State Reps. Lile Gibbons and Fred Camillo, and Bruce Winningham, co-founder of the Greenwich Military Covenant of Care, as well as all three Greenwich First Selectmen.
Later, the audience will be invited inside Town Hall for refreshments, including apple cider and a piece of one of four "Happy Birthday America" cakes.
Greenwich voters can mingle and talk and get to meet Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, who is running against Greenwich resident Tom Foley in the Republican primary this August.
The Town of Greenwich will be hosting fireworks displays Saturday, July 3, at 9 p.m. at Binney Park and Greenwich Point Park. The rain date will be Monday, July 5, same time and locations.

Tom Foley's Dark Side Governor Wanna Be Refuses To Come Clean About His Domestic Violence Issues?
Tom "I Don't Have An Anger Management Problem" Foley Wants Voters To Believe That His Ex-Wife Lisa Foley Is A Habitual Liar.
Connecticut GOP gubernatorial candidate and Greenwich resident.
Tom Foley: First came reports of traffic arrests in the 80's and 90's. Tom "I Don't Have An Anger Management Problem" Foley still isn't being straightforward and transparent with the voters about his two arrests that involved road rage incidents.
It appears that the very temperamental and privileged Foley thinks that he can respond to questions about his past through press releases.
Still Tom Foley refuses to personally provide the police and court records that might provide balance and context about his arrests in 1981 and 1993. n one case,
Foley's ex-wife alleges that Foley tried to force her car off the road. Then there was the revelation of a report filed in 2002 by his ex-wife alleging abuse.
Yet, Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around "Foley refuses to let the media have full access to the police reports. Then Tom "I Am In Middle Of A Nasty Divorce" Foley was apointed co-chair to a special commission -- otherwise stocked with judges, lawyers and mental health professionals -- on divorce and custody when his only apparent qualification was that he was a really pissed-off ex-husband.
Was that an appropriate position for Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around" Foley? Foley was just using his clout as a mega fund-raiser -- to influence divorce and custody laws that could benefit him.?
Tom "I Never Slapped My Wife Around" Foley was still in the thick of a bitter divorce. Would Tom Foley, as a governor, appoint somebody like this to a job like that? And did Rowland's office, upon receipt of the ex-wife's letter, re-think the nomination even a little? I think we know the answer....

Oddly enough, Michael Steele may have done Republicans a favor by claiming the war in Afghanistan was started by President Obama.
He made those comments last night in Connecticut, at a fundraiser for the state party at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough in Groton.
There was another reason to pay attention to this fundraiser, which no one is talking about because of Steele:
It was cohosted by former Rep. Rob Simmons, and his former Senate primary foe, Linda McMahon, was also slated to attend.
Here's why that's interesting. For all intents and purposes, the Connecticut Senate race has moved into general election mode, but speculation has lingered that Simmons, though he suspended his campaign in May, is hanging around and hoping to steal the Republican nomination from McMahon, the former CEO of the WWE.
His name will still appear on the ballot in the August primary, along with McMahon's and that of Conservative Tea Party favorite Peter Schiff.
Linda Mahon suggested in an interview with Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson that Simmons might be running a stealth campaign against her.
Simmons and McMahon don't seem to like each other.
Simmons told The National Review, shortly after he suspended his campaign following a defeat to McMahon at the state GOP convention, that he wouldn't endorse McMahon and didn't think she could win.
His campaign highlighted some cutting opposition research about McMahon's tenure at WWE, and all the sleazy stuff WWE's wrestling/entertainment regime encompasses. Which would make Simmons' and McMahon's co-appearance at a state GOP fundraiser a bit awkward, if not quite a major story.
No one is really talking about that, or the smoldering bitterness of the Connecticut Republican Senate primary, thanks to Michael Steele.
Then again, Steele's comments don't exactly help Republicans in Connecticut, either.
Linda McMahon is trying to run an outsider campaign, and the last thing she needs is the chairman of the Republican National Committee, the party's top establishment official, making headlines in Connecticut.
There's been impressive growth in the Ruby Horse Chestnut tree planted four years ago in July in Cos Cob's Strickland Park in memory of George Allen Smith IV .
With Stamford opting not to put on a Fourth of July fireworks display this year, Greenwich officials are preparing for larger-than-normal turnouts for the town's two separate displays.
