lol good one...racist much?? Bridgeport is just as bad as stratford with the roads. Good job on the racist and ignorant comment. I AM ACTUALLY ABOUT TO GRADUATE FROM AN EXCEPTIONAL COLLEGE IN NEW YORK AND THEN ON TO MY MASTER'S IN SEPTEMBER SINCE EVERYONE IS SO CONCERNED ABOUT MY COMMENTS ;) I have not said one ghetto or ignorant slang...since i know you were implying that with the bridgeport comment. So sad... Maybe you should tell your comment to someone who lives in bridgeport, Im sure they would love it ;)

. Bad enough to storm dumped so much snow. This was the worst management of a storm in the history of this town. Whoever was in charge of managing the storm and preparing for should be fired.

Once again the Town leadership has let the Stratford taxpayers down with the slow response to this blizzard.Some streets haven't even seen a town truck or equipment since the beginning of the storm. Shame on the leadership...Remember in November A concern taxpayer in Stratford

For someone who is so worried about their education you seem to have problems spelling even the most basic words. Maybe instead of your incessant bitching you should be studying the dictionary. If there is a man in your in your life I feel sorry for him, all you've done is complain constantly.

Iona College exceptional? I beg to differ, In 2011, Iona College admitted that it had reported inflated figures from 2002–2011 about "acceptance rates, SAT scores, graduation rates, and alumni who give annually" in a bid to influence college rankings.
Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 01:17 PM
Tara santone where is the father ( or fathers) of your kids to help you out
Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 01:18 PM
Freedom of speech
OpportunistWatch February 12, 2013 at 05:24 PM
"better suited for Bridgeport" ? ....racist .......... Not so common sense fits after that racist comment.
OpportunistWatch February 12, 2013 at 05:29 PM
"Not so common sense" ...... lay off the racist comments..... Seems like you didn't get taught much respect for others, maybe you didn't have a father?
OpportunistWatch February 12, 2013 at 05:31 PM
Disrespectful and inappropriate childish racist behavior not freedom of speech.
Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 06:11 PM
No slurs were used
Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 06:13 PM
You assume I told her to move to bpt because apparently only African Americans live in bpt? Sounds like your racist

lol I actually HAVE NO KIDS,,NEVER EVEN BEEN PREGNANT! I was concerned for myself because I HAVE TO GET TO CLASS FOR MY MASTERS DEGREE. I SHOVELED EVERYTHING WITH THE HELP OF MY NEIGHBORS. I feel sorry for you because your mother and father(if you have one lol) did a HORRIBLE job raising you. When i do have kids IT WILL BE WHEN MY BOYFRIEND AND I GET MARRIED AND ARE FINANCIALLY READY. I am beautiful, smart, and have one hell of a body if you must know. When i do have children, I will make sure to raise them nothing like you. Would you want to meet in person so I can prove to you that i have no children and never been pregnant because my body speaks for itself. I bet you have no father and your just mad. I appreciate everyone sticking up for me against this fool that clearly has no common sense. Also i am going to school to work with children so they do not grow up to be like you. Karma will come to you for your nasty words. Have a nice day. Your lucky i do not have a kid of kids with a father or fathers because this would turn into a lawsuit
TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:17 PM
I agree with you OpportunistWatch.... i think he was raised by wolves lol
TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:24 PM
I am an A/B student..clearly I am not too concerned with my spelling on this because I am not getting graded. I am writing the same statements as everyone else. You are miserable sorry person. What you have said to me is irrelevant and you are irrelevant. Iona is a great college idiot..no school is perfect. And clearly I see the red line under the misspelled words but i do not care, i just wanted to get my point across. Is this spelling good enough for you hun?? I made sure it was perfect just for you ;)
TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:25 PM
Everyone is so bold on here but I am just as bold in person. We can all meet up and talk if it will make you feel better..seems you have a boring life and need some excitement....Im your girl!! :)
Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 06:28 PM
Tara no comment on your baby daddy's eh?
TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:34 PM
i just responded to you, clearly you can not read. I have no children and if i did i would be proud no matter what. I already responded to you comment so i hope you can read..its up top... and i am started to feel harassed..this has nothing to do with snow. GO GET A JOB OR FIND YOUR FATHER. this is sad to me because i can not wait and hope for the day I have children. Im actually planning on starting my family after my Masters degree. AND WHEN I DO.. I WILL HAVE ONE BABY'S FATHER WHO WILL ALSO BE MY HUSBAND...U ARE definitely lonely and miserable..i can only imagine the life you must of had. I will pray for you
TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:35 PM

TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:36 PM

Not so common sense February 12, 2013 at 06:36 PM

TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:37 PM

TARA SANTONE February 12, 2013 at 06:41 PM
