Good point Michael Whitehouse. Our writers should take a lesson from the seamstresses. A "patch" that's done properly will never look like a rag.

SInce many people read only the headlines, a headline in a reputable newspaper will provide a brief, yet accurate, statement of the contents of the article.

I appreciate the value of a relevant news story, but including the subject's home address is totally inappropriate and unprofessional, regardless of whether this information is a matter of public record. Would you appreciate your home address being made public for all to see? If so, please post your home address here.

This is also the type of story run in every newspaper, news channel and internet news site 100's of times every day. It is based on a news release from the police department. Unfortunately, the average Southbury Police press release doesn't tell residents anything and if we remember the complaints last year from the press that our PD didn't do any news releases, now they do them with little to no valuable information at all. No different than the daily DWI arrest reports where you get only the side of the cop writing the press release. The difference is different outlets try to "spice" up the release by quoting "Police Spokesman so and so..." who happened to be the fool who did nothing more than read the press release to the reporter.
