Why Milford Needs A Domestic Violence Shelter

I come across abysmally tragic items like this all the time in the police blotter - there's probably one or two "domestic" incidents in each day's blotter: ARRESTEE: DAVID WESTON JR. (28) 24 DARINA PLACE, MILFORD
CHARGE (S): ASSAULT – PREGNANT PERSON 3RD; THREATENING 2ND
DISORDERLY CONDUCT
POLICE RECEIVED A COMPLAINT OF A DISTURBANCE AT A DARINA PLACE RESIDENCE. INVESTIGATION LED TO THE ARREST OF WESTON WHO IS ACCUSED OF PUSHING HIS COMPANION TO THE GROUND, THREATENING TO HARM HER AND STRIKING/KICKING HER SEVERAL TIMES. WESTON ALLEGEDLY DAMAGED THE VICTIM’S CELL PHONE DURING THE INCIDENT. THE COMPANION WAS TAKEN TO A LOCAL HOSPITAL FOR A MEDICAL EVALUATION DUE TO HER PREGNANCY. Who knows what happened here - and of course Weston is innocent until proven guilty. But the allegations are serious.Whenever I read something like this happening in Milford, I get a sick feeling thinking about how a group of people from Woodmont would use zoning laws to stop a domestic shelter …

TRUTH SQUAD!
Mayor Ben Blake and Republican challenger Peter Spalthoff debated last night – though, “answered questions from the audience” is a more accurate depiction.
Many news outlets like to use Pinocchio’s nose, or, in the case of the Seattle Times, the Space Needle, to measure how truthful the candidates’ statements were. I’d like to use a less pointy metaphor. So, I’m measuring the truthfulness (or accuracy) here in distance in Connecticut from Milford. So, if one of the candidates said, “Barack Obama doesn’t have a birth certificate” they would be rated “North Canaan” because that's as far from the truth (Milford) as you can get. Get it?
The candidate: Ben Blake The claim: “I passed two lean, bipartisan budgets.” The verdict: West Haven. True, but additional context is necessary. The way the budget process works is the mayor – with much help from the finance director and department heads – forms a budget toward the end of the calendar year, and reveals it to the public usual…
