Jun. 16th, 2012 @ 09:35 pm Explosion sound in Meriden
So, I've lived Meriden for about three years. Nearly every day I hear a loud exploding sound outside that echos for a second or two. Sometimes another follows shortly after. Does anybody know what this is? I'm just curious. Thanks.

Jan. 5th, 2012 @ 07:42 pm Offering Japanese Tutoring/Lesson
Current Location: Vernon, CT, USA
Hi everyone!

If this kind of post is not allowed, feel free to delete.

I am currently looking to make some extra money by offering Japanese lessons or tutoring. I have completed 4 years of Japanese Language and Literature studies at UMass. Two study abroad sessions have left me with a fairly high level of conversation as well as tutoring ability and I would love to pass that on to someone interested in learning a foreign language.

I am located in Vernon, but am willing to travel to reasonable locations.

Price and timing are negotiable.

Please contact me with any questions. Responding to the post is fine, but please PM me if you plan on including any personal information.

Thank you!

My amazing wedding photographer is holding a contest for her 2011 brides. Basically, vote for your favorite, and they win a canvas print of one of their favorite pics. I'd love to win this.

So, if you can, can you just like this pic?

All the pictures are gorgeous. (I love the one in the snow, as a lot of people do.) But, I'm just hoping to get some more votes.

Help if you can, and take a look at Sassy Mouth's page. She is an amazing photographer.

Ansonia Collected Glastonbury Taxes

Ansonia got an unexpected tax boost this year — from unsuspecting Glastonbury residents.

Glastonbury residents paid about $6,400 in taxes to Ansonia in July. The problem: They were trying to pay their Glastonbury taxes.

How did it happen?

A return envelop snafu.

Ansonia and Glastonbury use the same billing company — Quality Data Service Inc. based in Waterbury — to mail out their tax bills, according to city Comptroller Joseph Miller. Somehow the company inserted Ansonia’s return payment envelopes into Glastonbury’s bills.

Miller briefed the Board of Aldermen on the problem Tuesday. After hearing the details, the aldermen approved refunding Glastonbury the $6,400.

Miller said that several Glastonbury residents mailed their checks in the return envelopes. The checks arrived in Ansonia’s Post Office box, and were picked up by Webster Bank officials, who process the payments and deposit the money directly into Ansonia’s accounts.

Webster Bank processes tax payments for both towns, so the Glastonbury residents were in their system as taxpayers.

But when Webster Bank sent its payment report to Ansonia the next day, the tax collector found several payments to accounts that weren’t in Ansonia’s system, Miller said.

“The following day we went to post the information Webster Bank sent to us,” Miller said. “But the account numbers were different.”

My teenaged sisters are very good friends with two sisters named Natalie (17) and Eva (15). About 3 weeks ago, their father, a Polish immigrant named Tomasz Kocab, was arrested by an immigration officer and has been imprisoned in Boston ever since. He runs the risk of being deported from his home of 25 years, taken away from his wife (a resident alien) and his three daughters (all US citizens).

His daughters have started an online petition to try to keep their father from being deported. He is a hard-working man who owns his own business, has a social security number, and is active in his church and community.

If you could please "like" the Facebook page I've linked below and pass the word to your Facebook friends, it would be greatly appreciated.

Tomasz's daughters are also asking that people send an appeal to Governor Malloy regarding their father's status, instructions are linked below:

Thank you so much.

EDIT: FRIDAY AUGUST 12, 2011 - 9 am

I just saw this on Facebook:

"WE WON! Thank you sososos much to everyone who supported us!! Our efforts were not in vain as we got a phone call from the officer on my dad's case this morning and he is free & will be getting his citizenship within the next 6 months =) Going to pick him up now!"

Thank you to anyone who joined the group to help this family!
