State Liquor Officials Issue Reminder on New Year’s Eve Hours of Sales and Service

 
In a release, the Department of Consumer Protection Liquor Control Division said informing state residents of "the hours in which it will be legal for establishments to sell and serve liquor as part of New Year’s celebrations."
 
This is the release:
"Tonight, New Year’s Eve, liquor stores and grocery stores with beer permits may sell permitted products during their normal hours until nine p.m. Bars, restaurants and cafes may serve drinks, beer or wine until 3 a.m. the following morning, January 1st. However, any town, by vote or local ordinance, may have reduced its locally permissible hours. In such towns, the reduced hours mandated by local governance take precedence over State law.
Tomorrow, New Year’s Day, package stores must remain closed; grocery stores may be open but the sale of beer or wine is prohibited. Bars, restaurants, cafes, casinos (food must be available) may serve drinks as their permit allows for normal operation.
Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein reminds party-goers to remain responsible and sensible while enjoying festivities.
“While we encourage persons to enjoy themselves, we also stress the importance of preventing needless tragedies,” Rubenstein said. “If you are hosting a party, don’t serve or provide alcohol to anyone who appears intoxicated or under the age of 21, make food and soft drink choices available, and be sure everyone has a safe ride home. If you’re going out, plan for a designated sober driver.”
The Department of Consumer Protection, through the State Liquor Control Commission, oversees all sales of liquor in the State of Connecticut. As Commissioner of Consumer Protection, Rubenstein is Chairman of the Liquor Control Commission."

Red Cross offers tips to avoid the flu

In a release,the Connecticut office of the American Red Cross urged folks "who have not yet gotten a flu vaccine to get vaccinated now."

Further, the release said, :The Red Cross also has steps people can take to prevent the spread of the flu virus during flu season. "

 

Here are the tips posted unedited here as a public service:

STEPS TO PREVENT FLU The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting someone against flu viruses. In addition to getting vaccinated, the Red Cross has some simple steps people can take to help prevent the spread of the flu virus. Parents can also practice these things with their kids to help keep them well:

·         Cover the nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and throw the tissue away after use. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into the elbow, not the hands.

·         Wash hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand-rub.

·         Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth.

·         Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

·         Stay home if sick. 

SIGNS OF THE FLU How does someone know they have the flu? The common signs of influenza are high fever, severe body aches, headache, being extremely tired, sore throat, cough, runny or stuffy nose, and vomiting and/or diarrhea (more common in children).

If someone in the household does come down with the flu, the Red Cross wants everyone to know the best way to care for them:

·         Designate one person as the caregiver and have the other household members avoid close contact with that person so they won’t become sick.

·         Make sure the person stays at home and rests until 24 hours after the fever is gone.

·         Designate a sick room for the person if possible. If there is more than one sick person, they can share the sick room if needed. If there is more than one bathroom, designate one for those who are sick to use. Give each sick person their own drinking glass, washcloth and towel.

·         Keep the following either in the sick room or near the person: tissues, a trash can lined with a plastic trash bag, alcohol-based hand rub, a cooler or pitcher with ice and drinks, a thermometer and a cup with straw or squeeze bottle to help with drinking. A humidifier will provide extra moisture, making it easier for the sick person to breathe. Sick people should wear a facemask, if available, when they leave the sick room or are around others.

·         Give plenty of liquids (water and other clear liquids) at the first sign of flu and continue throughout the illness. People with the flu need to drink extra fluids to keep from getting dehydrated.

·         Treat fever and cough with medicines that can be purchased at the store. Remember, when children are ill they should never be given aspirin or products containing aspirin - especially with the flu.

·         If the person gets very sick, is pregnant or has a medical condition (like asthma) that puts them at higher risk of flu complications, call their doctor. They may need to be examined and might need antiviral medicine to treat the flu.

Red Cross Offers Flu Care Tips – Page 2

 

·         Keep everyone’s personal items separate. All household members should avoid sharing pens, papers, clothes, towels, sheets, blankets, food or eating utensils unless cleaned between uses.

·         Disinfect doorknobs, switches, handles, computers, telephones, bedside tables, bathroom sinks, toilets, counters, toys and other surfaces that are commonly touched around the home or workplace.

·         Wash everyone’s dishes in the dishwasher or by hand using very hot water and soap.

·         Wash everyone’s clothes in a standard washing machine. Use detergent and very hot water, tumble dry on a hot dryer setting and wash hands after handling dirty laundry.

·         Wear disposable gloves when in contact with or cleaning up body fluids.

 

CALL THE DOCTOR If someone thinks they have the flu, their health-care provider should be consulted. Seek medical care immediately if the person develops any of the following symptoms:

·         Fast breathing, trouble breathing or bluish skin color.

·         Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen (adults).

·         Confusion or sudden dizziness.

·         Not drinking enough fluids, not being able to eat, or severe or persistent vomiting.

·         Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough.

·         Not waking up, being so irritable that the child does not want to be held or not interacting (children).

·         Fever with a rash (children).

·         No tears when crying or significantly fewer wet diapers than normal (children).

'Celebrate the New Year with a First Day Hike' with DEEP

 
 The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said in a release that is "joins America’s State Parks in sponsoring First Day Hikes at four state parks on Jan. 1, 2014
 
This is the release:
 
 
First Day Hikes originated over 20 years ago at a state park in Massachusetts.  In 2012, for the first time, all 50 state park systems joined together to sponsor First Day hikes, offering 400 hikes nationwide.  In Connecticut, hikes are scheduled at Sleeping Giant State Park, Hamden; Mansfield Hollow State Park, Mansfield; Hammonasset Beach State Park, Madison and Osbornedale State Park, Derby.
“First Day hikes offer a convenient way to get outside,  meet new people, exercise, and welcome the New Year with friends and family,” said Daniel C. Esty, Commissioner of the DEEP.  “For the third year Connecticut is participating as we once again join all forty nine other states that will provide First Day hikes for 2014.”
Hikers may choose a time that fits their schedule:
·         Mansfield Hollow State Park’s hike begins at 11:00 AM
·         Hammonasset State Park (Meigs Point) at 1:00 PM
·         Osbornedale (Kellogg Environmental Center) at 1:00 PM
·         Sleeping Giant State Park’s hike begins at 1:30 PM
Please dress for the weather and bring water and a snack.  Dogs are not permitted on the Hammonasset and Sleeping Giant hikes.  Dogs are allowed on the Mansfield Hollow and Osbornedale State Park hikes, but must be on a leash.  Choose your hike based on the abilities of your group, some of them are relatively flat and others involve a degree of rock scrambling. The hikes range from one to five miles.   
Mansfield Hollow State Park will be hosting two hikes.  The 2.2 mile hike is a relatively flat loop starting from the parking lot on Bassetts Bridge Road along the dike towards route 89 in Mansfield.  This easy wide beautiful trail will eventually turn into a deeper wooded section looping back to the parking lot.  Hikers will see lots of beautiful pines and a brief overlook of the reservoir on the way back.  The 4.5 mile hike goes on trails past the boat launch and wrap around the lake at Mansfield Hollow.  Hikers will view a number of scenic points along the way overlooking the reservoir.
Hammonasset Beach State Park’s walk will cover about a mile or so with a few stops along the way to talk about the history of Hammonasset Beach from prehistoric times to the present day. Meet at Meigs Point Nature Center.  The walk will last about 1 hour.
The Osbornedale State Park hike will be a moderate to strenuous 2.5 mile loop. Meet at the Kellogg Environmental Center, 500 Hawthorne Ave., Derby.  The hike is on the red trail, past old stone foundations and ponds and through fields and forests as hikers learn about the history of the farm.  Free coffee and hot chocolate will be served after the hike. Dogs on leashes are invited to participate.
The Sleeping Giant Park Association invites hikers to join them and help usher in the New Year at the Giant.  The hike will involve traveling over uneven, rocky terrain, possibly with a degree of rock scrambling.  At some point in the hike, the group may break into two smaller groups, with one returning to the starting point after about 1 1/2 hours, while the other group will continue for another hour or so.  Hikers should be in good physical condition to participate.

Blumenthal speech on slaying victim Erika Robinson

In a release, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said he "delivered a floor speech on the life and death of Erika Robinson," 26, who was "victim of a mass shooting that occurred in October at a New Haven nightclub."
 
Read the speech here, shared unedited as given by Blumnthal's office in a release:
 


“We owe it to [Erika] and to her family that her legacy will be one of protecting others like her, protecting others across America, regardless of the neighborhood or the place in that neighborhood, whether it is downtown New Haven, an urban area, or Newtown, a suburban neighborhood. It should not matter where gun violence is a threat. We should eradicate it everywhere. And it should not matter who may be the victim of gun violence, what her background may be, her race, religion, anything about her. Every human being, every person in the United States of America, is deserving of protection that our society failed to give to this young woman,” Blumenthal said during the speech.

 

Video of Blumenthal’s remarks is here; full text of his speech.

 
“Over the weekend, the state of Connecticut and the country and the world commemorated with grief and continued pain the first-year anniversary of the tragic massacre in Newtown, and on the morning of Saturday, one year after the Newtown tragedy, I attended a church service, a beautiful, moving, powerful celebration of faith at the Saint Rose of Lima Church whose pastor, Monsignor Robert Weiss, has been a great friend to many in the community and such a source of strength and comfort.

 

“Later in the weekend, I visited with the family of Erika Robinson of West Haven, Connecticut, who was shot and killed at a nightclub in New Haven on October 26. This seemingly random act of violence left Erika dead and five other individuals injured by gunfire. I have spent months and have been grateful for the experience with the families of those victims in Newtown, and I was equally grateful to spend this time with Erika's family, Celeste and Greg Fulcher, at their home and I want to thank them for welcoming me to their home on that day.

 

“Erika Robinson was only 26 years old when she became a victim of gun violence, and she clearly was a person full of joy and life and goodness for all of her 26 years and including the day that she perished. She was building a business, a clothing line, and as her business grew, a local store started selling that line of [clothes], and those who knew her described her as hard working and driven, and she was compassionate. Most recently, she released a special collection in honor of the breast cancer awareness month. She had enormous potential, she did everything right, she played by the rules, she stayed out of trouble, and she had the support of her two loving parents, and she was on track to fulfill the American Dream. And now her life tragically has been reduced to a statistic unless we make sure that it is more than a statistic and that we work and fight to make her legacy one of helping to protect others, helping to prevent gun violence and take victims like her who are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, as she was that night in New Haven, when a shooter who was illegally in possession of a firearm, in fact, apparently on bail, turning to take as a victim someone else in the crowd that evening in the nightclub, and she became a victim that night, inadvertently, unintentionally, and five others were wounded.

 

“I have her picture here. Erika was more than a statistic. She was a person. And part of her clothing line was this small card that she fashioned herself: ‘It's so regular for us to say you only live once, but do you deeply understand that it's real? What I am trying to say is be fearless. Do things you always wanted to do. Never let anyone hold you back. Enjoy this thing we call life while we can. People going to talk regardless, so be you. Forever, Erika Robinson.’ And may that legacy be forever. May that legacy be with us forever and inspire us to work as we have done on behalf of the families of Newtown and as we should be doing on behalf of the 10,000 other victims of gun violence since Newtown. And the victims are not only the victims who have perished among those 10,000. There are others who have been injured like the five who were injured that night when the shooter at that nightclub in New Haven was aiming for someone else and sprayed gunfire that killed Erika, took her as a casualty but also injured others severely and traumatized countless others who saw or watched or heard what went on in that nightclub that night, an establishment that was legally licensed by the state of Connecticut, legally licensed to entertain people and charge for their being there, an establishment that was the last place Erika Robinson knew.

 

“Such a promising young woman at the wrong place at the wrong time, a woman who could have contributed so much to New Haven, to Connecticut, to our country. A tragic loss for her family that continues to honor her courage, and strength, and a tragic loss for all of us, and for the thousands of people who came to her funeral because she had already in those young 26 years, already touched so many lives. We owe it to her and to her family that her legacy will be one of protecting others like her, protecting others across America, regardless of the neighborhood or the place in that neighborhood, whether it is downtown New Haven, an urban area, or Newtown, a suburban neighborhood. It should not matter where gun violence is a threat. We should eradicate it everywhere. And it should not matter who may be the victim of gun violence, what her background may be, her race, religion, anything about her. Every human being, every person in the United States of America, is deserving of protection that our society failed to give to this young woman.

 

“We do a great disservice to our nation when we fail to honor those individuals who may not be in the headlines, who may not be from neighborhoods that we know but others that are unfamiliar to us. And we owe it to ourselves, not just to Erika and her family, but to ourselves as a nation to do better and to make America safer. She deserved better from the greatest country in the history of the world, and we, as citizens of that country, deserve better and have an obligation to do better. And so we will, I hope, leave a legacy for her in her name that speaks to a safer, better America.

 

“Thank you, Madam President. I yield the floor.”
