A kayaker in the annual Naugatuck River Canoe and Kayak Race shows excellent form in navigating through a tricky stretch of whitewater this past May. Not all boaters on the Naugatuck are as skilled, or prepared.

Four young adults from a local church group went looking for adventure on the Naugatuck River, and on a bright day in June, they found it. They borrowed four colorful kayaks and headed to the river. None of the four had ever been in a kayak before. They would make no scouting attempts to examine what trouble spots they might encounter. They had no knowledge of the river. No one was wearing a life preserver. No helmets. The only knowledge they had was that there was a way to enter the river in the Platts Mills section above a breached dam. Below the dam were rapids.
After listening to dozens of members of Waterbury's black community speak out in support of Dr. Portia Bonner, a black woman who was born and raised in Waterbury, the Board of Education voted 7-3 to hire Dr. Kathleen Ouellette as the new Superintendent of Schools in Waterbury. The board members who voted for Ouellette cited her strong track record of experience as the deciding factor.

The following alert was blasted out through e-mails and social network sites Sunday afternoon from Joshua Angelus, the President of the Waterbury Neighborhood Council.
Protect our Neighborhoods and our Quality of Life: Purchase Open Space
Acquisition of passive open space property should be a goal of the City of Waterbury in order to enhance the quality of life of all residents and to avoid overdevelopment of the limited remaining land. This effort should include acquisition of certain proposed condominium and apartment development properties such as Western Woods on Park Road (133.68 acres, open space value $1,750,000), Stonebridge Commons on Highland Avenue (38 acres, estimated open space value $500,000) and Essex Ridge on Suffolk Street (9 acres, estimated open space value $118,000). --- Waterbury Neighborhood Council
