  1. Valley Regional High School football player Madelyn Riebold is a freshman who has played in midfield this season and has made a name for herself supporting her teammates. According to a recent article, “In a short time, Maddie has already become a driving force for Coach Lloyd Warren’s team, dictating the pace and keeping the team focused and competitive. Coach Warren la considers an impressive all-rounder and an important factor in possession control for the Warriors.” She is the driving force behind the team. She plays center of the park, she has great tenacity, she has good ball skills, and I can trust her to be a driving force for the team and give us that push when we need it. … If we can win the midfield we can win a lot of games and I think she will give us the chance to do that. [said Warren.] “I think my favorite thing about midfield is that I like who I play with,” Maddie [said]. “I feel like I have the most action on the pitch. I like to play it wide and receive it back and play it forward. I like to tackle, I like everything. It got me always a lot of fun.” Good luck Maddie in future seasons! (
  2. State Rep. Christine Palm (D-36) wrote an open letter in the CT Examiner to residents of Chester, Deep River, Essex and Haddam following her victory. The letter said in part: “In my gratitude for being re-elected, I want to make a few observations.

If you are not registered to vote, please do so – we have municipal elections in 2023 and the presidential election in 2024. To the poll clerks and poll clerks of both parties who have checked and double checked every vote – thank you for your integrity and for maintaining our electoral system. I know you have worked long, exhausting hours and you deserve our deepest gratitude. To the volunteers and campaign staff – aged 16 to 80 – you are the embodiment of democracy, hard work, courage and hope. I cannot thank you enough. Whether you started door-to-door in June or stepped in to help during Get Out the Vote weekend — your every move has helped validate our electoral system for fairness and legality. of the stem. To those who voted for me – thank you for voting hopefully for something, instead of fearfully voting against something. Your belief in science, reason, free speech, community responsibility, environmental protection, human dignity, and the United States Constitution is all that will heal our nation.” Congratulations Christine on your re-election (CT Examiner)
