Loose Talk Aids Enemy
As a former naval officer who served a tour of duty as an intelligence officer, I am astonished at the covert information released to the media by the U.S. government. The operation against Bin Laden is an example of this problem. The media reported details of the military
operation, including the designation of the units assigned to the task. They received access to information on a dog involved in the operation, the name of the dog trainer, and the location of the training base. When President Obama visited the troops to congratulate them, the names and faces of many individuals were plainly visible on TV. The media reported we captured Bin Laden’s computers, CDs, and telephone numbers with information on numerous al-Qaida terrorists and future plans of the terrorist group. It even received some access to Bin Laden tapes. One story reported the activities of the U.S. intelligence agencies and how they found Bin Laden. They even reported on a CIA operation inside Pakistan. And why didn’t we keep the death of Bin Laden a secret while we mined the information we gathered and sought out al-Qaida terrorists? Our loose talk and openness continues to aid the enemy.

Oil Company Tax Giveaways The CEOs from the five major oil companies went to the Senate on May 12 to try to justify the $4 billion in tax giveaways they’re receiving this year. Together, they booked $36 billion in profits in the first quarter of 2011 alone. It’s a head- smackingly obvious example of how broken Washington is that there’s even a question about

this. These companies don’t need and don’t deserve taxpayer money with a budget deficit to close and gas prices at or near record highs. Even worse is the fact that when the Senate tries to strip these oil company giveaways, it’s likely that a minority of senators will block a vote from happening. And even if the Senate manages to pass a bill eliminating the giveaways, there’s little chance it will be brought up for a vote in the House.

Police and Fire Departments Are Appreciated
One year ago on May 24, 2010, my husband Ed fell from a ladder a full story, and then down our oak stairs entangled in the ladder. He suffered serious injuries, including a compound fracture of his ankle, a completely destroyed shoulder joint requiring a titanium joint and rod replacement, head lacerations, and other broken bones. The Litchfield Police were the first to arrive,
School of Nursing
followed immediately by the Litchfield Fire Department. Chief Schofield took charge of the situation and was incredibly focused and careful, as he directed the complicated transfer of Ed from his entanglement in the wooden ladder on the stairs to a backboard. The Hudson Fire and Rescue EMTs were there alongside the team of Firemen and Policemen, monitoring Ed’s condition and seeing to it that he received immediate medical attention, even as he was being removed from the stairs. The rapid, professional attention to my husband’s critical situation by our two towns’ first responders was striking, and brought home to me the fact that we don’t say thank you enough to these dedicated public servants who are always there.
Ed’s surgeon has told us that if he had not had the attention he received, he might have lost his foot. Although Ed is still recovering and we are looking at more surgery in the near future, we feel that he would not be where he is today without the assistance he received. We are grateful for the incredibly quick and capable attention of the Litchfield and Hudson Fire and Police Departments.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the residents of Hudson and Litchfield for their generous response to our Annual Food Drive held Saturday, May 14. Also, a big thank-you to Postal management,
rural carriers, city carriers, church, family volunteers, and local schools and businesses for displaying posters and billboard announcements for our drive. With the resources provided and the time offered by all the volunteers, we collected 12,600 pounds of food. People in need should contact local food banks at St. John’s Church, First Baptist Church in Hudson, and Litchfield Community Church.
Frank Maglio, Food Drive Coordinator, National Association of Letter Carriers - Hudson A Tribute to Dr. David Fredenburg
I believe my family had met him when my daughter was three and my son was a newborn. He has a tremendous love for children and has a great way with interacting with them and us as parents. Over the years, he had always sponsored a summer event for his clients and their families. I am saddened to say, we had unfortunately missed them. Dr. Fredenburg was never a one to just write a ‘script’ to make the parent happy. My children now are 19 and 16 and we have recently learned that he has to end his practice here in Hudson. He had just taken on our grandson and we were thrilled to have him again for our now extended family. His staff, always helpful and very caring, and I have had times of just feeling comfortable enough to just chat with them like family. All of them will be greatly missed. Many thanks and we pray for God’s blessings on all of you in the days ahead.
