Quotes

"We received bad grades from the American Lung Association in the state of West Virginia,” said Jackie Huff, an administrator at the health department. “That's why it's been in discussion for years and we've decided that to protect the community that we live in."
His longtime colleague Joseph Pisani, who worked with him throughout much of his career said, "When I began at Greenwich Time in 1976, Bruce was the police reporter filing about three stories a day. We saw a lot of changes over the years in the community and the business. Bruce loved local news, but perhaps his most defining characteristic was his integrity. He was always my conscience. Whenever there was a questionable story, he was the one to ask, 'Is this fair? Do we have both sides?' His sense of ethics was impeccable and, sad to say, you don't see that in journalism today."
"This is a health issue not a political issue," Kellejian said. "El Cajon is a healthy city, San Diego County is a healthy county and we want to keep it that way."
...thing right now is how can we make this work in Danbury," said Patel, a Danbury High School graduate, speaking before Tuesday night's meeting. "The hookah is different, and that is what attracts the people. We were sold out every night we were open."
