Does Accidentally Hurting Your Kid Make You a Horrible Parent?

As a parent, I don't wish what happened to a Hollywood actress on anyone!. Having kids is hard and when accidents happen as they did to Actress Alexa PenaVega, most of us have a hard time shaking the "parental guilt". PenaVega shared on social media the other day that she accidentally closed her 2-year-old son Kingston's fingers in the hinge of her bathroom door.

Snow Plow Thief Loose in LaGrange, Police Looking for This Suspect

The theft allegedly took place sometime Friday, October 15th. Before we know it snow will be on the ground in the Hudson Valley, most of us are making sure we are ready to go with all of our snow removal equipment. We have our shovels, sand, snowblower "tuned up", gas for the snowblower, snowplows out, and ready to be put on a truck. Lots of preparation, but one suspect decided instead of buying his own equipment, he'd just head out and steal some from a local business.

Hey bagel lovers, some new boss bagels are coming to town soon. That town is New Milford, and the location is 312 Danbury Road inside the Red Barn. New Milford's new bagel haven will be called the "Bagel Barn," and the new owners are Diane and Mitch Klaif.

There's an old saying that you can't please everyone all the time, and to prove that, I've uncovered some pretty funny bad online reviews of the Danbury Fair Mall. Now let me start off by saying that the Danbury Fair Mall has been a huge part of the Connecticut and New York area since it opened back on October 28, 1986. The mall has been a go-to site for thousands and thousands of people for just about anything they needed which could just about always be found in the almost 190 different stores. It's been a gathering place for young and old alike, and has had its finger on the pulse of the local community since its inception.

Should We Change the Speed Limit on I-84 in Danbury to 90 mph? People Are Going That Fast Anyway

If you are driving on I-84 in Danbury and you are not in traffic, you'll notice people are driving way too fast. Let's back it up a bit, driving on I-84 in Danbury between Exits 2 and 8 going East or West is a disaster. There is traffic, a lot of traffic and that happens often. When there is no traffic, there is a ton of volume with people speeding, driving aggressively and taking chances. Then, you have the people on I-84 who drive too slow and they are as dangerous as anyone out there.

Meteor Shower, Full Moon to Shine Over Hudson Valley Tonight

There's nothing spookier than a full moon in October. With that being said, Wednesday's full moon has nothing to do with ghosts or haunted spirits. Sure, it's spooky season but the full moon on Wednesday, October 20th is called The Hunters Moon. NASA explains further writing: "The earliest use of the term "Hunter's Moon" cited in the Oxford English Dictionary is from 1710. According to the Farmer's Almanac, with the leaves falling and the deer fattened, it is time to hunt. Since the harvesters have reaped the fields, hunters can easily see the animals that have come out to glean (and the foxes that have come out to prey on them)."
