Waterbury legislators are pleased to announce the approval by the State Bond Commission of various items in the City of Waterbury totaling over $6.5 million dollars.
“It is important that I along with the delegation continue the work of securing much needed State funding to assist my district and the entire City. The needs are great for our economic and physical infrastructure and I continue in my pursuit of these funds. It is the right thing to do and it is what my constituents have asked of me,” Rep. Berger said.

Meet Stephany D. Minor, Author of FEAR NOT, BELIEVE ONLY, MIRACLES RECEIVED THROUGHOUT MY JOURNEY HAVING HIV/AIDS
Shock. Fear. Disbelief. These feelings gripped the heart of a young, bright, ambitious Stephany Minor in 1992 – and changed her life forever.
When Emery Roth began photographing along the old railroad tracks of the Naugatuck Valley, he never expected they would lead him through a time warp to a mill where he would find giant hydraulics still hissing, steel clanking, hot glowing metal still flying through the air - where the steam still rises from old pickling vats, and men still charge the foundry furnaces in buildings where the soot has caked for more than a hundred years. Some of the photographs from Emery Roth's book Brass Valley: Made in America, which were taken in Waterbury and Ansonia, will be on exhibition in the art gallery of the Silas Bronson Library during June and July.
On Wednesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. Roth will give a power point presentation in the library auditorium of additional images from his book, accompanied by poetry and prose selections from it. He will also discuss his discoveries along the tracks and in old industrial sites throughout the valley. Attendees may order a special limited edition of the exhibition book.

Just when the characters have overcome their scandalous and drama-filled pasts, both plot to aid their husbands in competing for the presidency of the American Baptist Coalition.
