>MATT DeRIENZO: What summer camp can do for local kids
It’s amazing to me how a scent can trigger memories. Particular cleaning products bring me right back to the immaculate Lynn, Mass., home of my late grandparents. And not just how it smelled, but details right down to the words of wisdom such as “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive” embroidered in little picture frames on the wall.

>LATEST COLUMN: Why we allow anonymous online comments

leave a comment »

>Why we allow anonymous comments online
I’ve addressed and defended the concept of our daily “Sound Off” before.
More troubling to many critics of any form of “anonymous” opinion feature is what is happening 24/7 on our Web site, registercitizen.com.
Newspapers in general are split over how to handle public comment and reader interaction on the Web.

>Two features now up and running on our new LitchfieldCountyMom.Com site are the “Playground Finder” and the “Museum Finder.”
The Playground Finder includes details, reviews and photos on more than 100 local playgrounds throughout Litchfield County’s 26 towns. We sent various parents out into each community to write about what ages they are appropriate for, etc.
