Milford to consider full-time athletic directors, more coaches

The Board of Education went over many high school athletic topics Monday night before the start of budget season.

Jonathan Law High School Principal Francis Thompson requested an additional coach for the cross country team due to safety reasons.

"That is what I take into consideration more than anything else," he said. "I want the kids to be safe.”

Letter to the editor from Mayor Ben Blake

By Ben Blake

Mayor of Milford, CT On behalf of all of the citizens of Milford, I would like to thank everyone who has helped in the Storm Sandy recovery efforts.  Your hard work and generosity truly demonstrates why Milford is a “small city with a big heart.”  As you well know, we have had a difficult few weeks since Sandy darkened our city, with hundreds of resident displaced and thousands of homes damaged.   A follow-up Nor’easter only seemed like a bitter second punch.  But, it is through the tireless and impressive efforts of our city workers, our volunteer organizations and our citizenry that we have turned the tides and are re-building our great city.  Our recovery is a work in progress, but thanks to those who gave of themselves to help others, we are all on the road to recovery.
