Wrapping a the week....

With a peek towards what's coming up next week...

This I fascinating. Next week the Norwich Rotary Club will host its annual Native Son/Native Daughter luncheon. It's an award given to a local resident who lives the region and achieves great success. There have been many amazing people from the city who have accomplished what quite a bit, and the luncheon is always interesting.

This year the winner of the award is Michael Mathieu, a 1986 graduate of NFA and 1990 graduate of Harvard, magna cum laude. His claim to fame....among a long list of innovative computer software that he created the spell check program for Microsoft's Word documents -- the little red squiggle that appearss under a misspelled word.

The General Assembly returns to Hartford on Monday for the veto override session. The increase in minimum wage, the proposal for a cabinet to investigate the needs and resources of nonprofits and the health care polling bill opening the state health care system to municipal workers, nonprofits and small buesinesses are the biggies on the table.

And we can expect to hear more from the Dodd controversy. Last week's press conference did little to bring that to an end....and I suspect the more we hear, the less we're going to like what we're hearing. This is very disappointing. I certainly expected better.
