Congressman Chris Murphy will be in Simsbury September 15th for some doorknocking.  He is Chair of the Open Space Caucus, and will be coming to Simsbury at around noon after a “Congressman on the Corner” event in Farmington.  A special guest - Wayne David, a member of the British Parliament, will be joining Congressman Murphy on Saturday.  Some tentative streets on the itinerary include Longview Drive, Chestnut Hill, and Woodhaven Drive.  Feel free to join Chris as he visits Simsbury.

 

On-line petition to save Connecticut watershed land:  A second attempt is being made to develop the Yale Farms Golf Resort (Canaan, Norfolk). The first proposal was turned down by DEP when they studied the withdrawal of an estimated 10-30 million gallons of water per season in the watersheds of Ginger Creek, Whiting and Blackberry Rivers coupled with catastrophic landscaping in 780 acres of pristine forest, meadow and farmland.  Please consider signing the on-line petition being circulated by environmental groups, including Trout Unlimited.
