behind the ‘thumbs.’ If you have an issue with anyone the only way to solve a problem is face to face, running to the selectman with the few friends you have will not solve anything. It is time to put this to rest stand up and be a man.”

“Thumbs down. The Hills Farms Cemetery has a barrel and is padlocked on either end so that people who wanted to get in there to decorate the plots could not do so over the weekend. The Alvirne Chapel parking lot had been paved and blocked off for 2-3 days and then the caution tape was taken off the road between the two pillars, but as you got down to get into the cemetery it’s all blocked off again! This is Memorial Day weekend and we had to back out (somehow) on that dirt road and we had to go way around to the side. On Memorial Day weekend! I couldn’t believe it. It’s very sad that on Memorial Day weekend the cemetery was unable to be entered from the front entrance.”

“Thumbs up and congratulations to Tony Scafidi for his 100th team win as Litchfield Blast softball manager!”

“Thumbs up. Congratulations to Air Force Airman Michael K. Munson for graduating from basic military training at Rockland Air Force Base in San Antoinio. He is the husband of Veronica

“Thumbs up to the Litchfield Memorial Day

Parade and Celebration, it was wonderful. The Campbell HS Band and Chorus sounded fantastic and the Boy and Girls Scouts were great as usual. Great speech by the great, great, great nephew of Captain McQuestin.”

“Thumbs up to RJ - for being who she is, for being strong, and being the hardest worker that I’ve known. She is a woman of character and remains persistent in the face of opposition and with the absence of encouragement. ‘Thumbs up’ for her unfaltering hopeful attitude and her kindness toward others. She maintains a menu of responsibilities that would stagger most people that I know yet; she is never without a smile for others. I am proud to know her and privileged to have her. -DR”

“Thumbs down to the landscaping company for

Citizen’s bank. The woods are not a bathroom. You could be charged as a sex offender.”

“Thumbs up to our baby girl, Shelby! We are so blessed to have the best girl in the world! We can’t believe you are 6! You are growing up so quickly. Happy Birthday Sweetie, Mommy and Daddy love you sooo much!”

“Thumbs down to the tenant that stated ‘isn’t that the landlord’s responsibility.’ First: You are absolutely right, it is, if the ‘landlord’ is made aware of the issue. Second: By you the tenant maintaining the property is the number one reason why your rent has never been raised. Third: By maintaining the property the ‘landlord’ has approved upgrades and amenities that for other tenants are ‘unnecessary.’ Before you run your mouth again you should also take into consideration that property taxes go up every year about $200 or more, property insurance also increases and not once has your rent been raised to cover the increases. Please call me any time with any issue, I will gladly rectify the problem: the Landlord.”
