Guest Editorial: High cost of corrections cannot be sustained for such little benefit

Posted on March 5, 2012 |
By Bill Schubart



The most expensive service our government provides to its citizens, other than heroic healthcare in Medicare, Medicaid and the VA, is to lock them up. 

According to the Bureau of Prisons, the annual average cost per prisoner in 2008 was $26,000 at the federal level and $24,000 at the local level. Small states like Rhode Island and Vermont estimate their costs much higher, about $35-$45,000 a year. This is two to three times our per-pupil cost for public education.

Sen. Olympia Snowe on why she is stepping down

Posted on March 2, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Angelo Lynn and political



Here’s U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, explaining why she is not running for a fourth term for the Senate as had been expected. Snowe has been a moderate Republican voice and one of the few Republicans willing to cross party lines to forge a compromise. She laments the loss of bipartisanship in the Senate and in politics. As former U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, I-Vermont, did almost a decade ago, she is leaving her post discouraged by a party and a political system that seems to have lost its way. It’s an informative and important piece to read.

NEW HAVEN — When sculptor Dennis Sparling started work on his nine-foot-tall sculpture of Leonardo da Vinci, he didn’t expect that one day he’d have to load the 600-pound behemoth onto a trailer and cart it around on a world tour. But, starting next month, Sparling and “Leo” will hit the road for the first leg of their journey.

For the New Haven artist, creating Leonardo has been more than a technical feat — though it did present challenges. Fabricating the sculpture was almost a manifesto.
