Weather Sunshine or Rain

on
The weather this summer has been notorious for being sunny and humid one minute, then changing abruptly to severe thunderstorms the next. People in New England have been known to say if you don’t like the weather, wait a few moments. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently said that July 2012 was the hottest month on record. […] [Read More]

I found a group of young men playing basketball at a quiet Parloa Park in Bethel. The other half of […] [Read More]

Wrestling with a Single Light

on
Danbury’s match against Trumbull was my first wrestling match I have covered in a few years. Though, growing up in Iowa I was surrounded by wrestling. Some consider University of Iowa and Iowa State University powerhouse schools for wrestling. Some might call it a religion in the midwest. I covered the state championships in Iowa and […] [Read More]
