Smoke is Back

It’s back… On Monday, many folks across Connecticut noticed something in the air. That ‘something’ is smoke once again from Canadian wildfires that is again drifting over our state. In fact, some of that smoke is drifting down the entire eastern seaboard… some as far as Florida! An EPA map showed a plume of wildfire smoke blanketing most of Connecticut on Monday, with slightly less smoky air in the northwestern corner of the state. It can cause health issues for those sensitive to air pollution.

Southbury Man Arrested for Theft

Burke now faces charges including burglary and larceny. He was taken into custody, locked behind bars, and is now being held on a $25,000 bond.

Bear Warning Issued

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection reminds everyone to take steps to reduce the likelihood of an encounter with a bear this fall… when black bears increase their food intake to add fat reserves needed to help them survive winter. Conflicts with bears have tripled over the last five years in Connecticut and bears have been sighted in all of the state’s 169 cities and towns. Never feed bears… intentionally or unintentionally… by leaving pet food, bird feeders, and other food sources unattended and available. As bears become increasingly food-conditioned, conflicts with humans will continue to increase, and food-conditioned bears pose a greater risk.

Commercial Cleaners Seek to Organize

Last Thursday, over 200 strike captains and bargaining committee members from three states traveled to their union’s Manhattan headquarters to represent the 10,000 union members who clean commercial properties across New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island, the state of New Jersey, and here in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The purpose was to open negotiations on the commercial cleaners’ first agreement to cover the entire tristate region under a single contract. Thursday’s opening of bargaining comes three months before the December 31 expiration of the separate agreements that currently cover the tristate region.
