OP-ED | Hartford Ballpark: Good for Region, Bad for City?

by Susan Bigelow | July 25, 2014 11:00am

Hartford may not get that stadium after all, thanks to a bumbling city government and fierce opposition from residents. This might be a good thing for the city, even though it’s a loss for the region.

OP-ED | If Done Right, Hartford Minor League Baseball Could Be More Than Worth It

by Susan Bigelow | June 6, 2014 8:00am

istock
New Britain baseball is ending the way it started, by moving about 10 miles down the road. In 1983, the Bristol Red Sox moved to New Britain; in 2016, the New Britain Rock Cats will likely be Hartford-bound.

Will it be worth it? That’s a surprisingly hard question to answer.

OP-ED | Northwestern Fails Mission Through Anti-Union Actions

by Audrey Honig Geragosian | April 25, 2014 11:00am

“I’m incredibly proud of our young men! GO CATS!” tweeted Northwestern University football coach Pat Fitzgerald on January 28, in the wake of his players’ petition to the National Labor Relations Board to unionize. As a second-generation NU alum, I was proud, too. The students’ actions embodied what a Northwestern education is supposed to be about: questioning the status quo, engaging debate, provoking new thought. Quaecumque sunt vera, as our motto reads, “Whatsoever things are true, think on these things.”
