I wanted to take the opportunity to personally thank Corporal Brooks for his many years of service. I've been working in Brookfield for over two decades and I've always felt safe and secure under the protection of the Brookfield PD and we've needed them a few times.

Coporal Brooks also happens to be my favorite Brookfield Law enforcement officer for his loyalty to I-95 and my dumb show.

Thank you sir for everything you've done for the community in your four decades with the P.D. I hope you'll still stop by to see me when I'm doing something stupid on the side of the road at 7 am.

Enjoy retirement Corporal, you deserve it.

P.S. Sorry it took me a week to get this but whoever was responsible for the Facebook tags, missed one.

Lost Blue Shirt Discovered on Shore of Candlewood Lake Island in Brookfield

On the priority-list of lost items, this is somewhere at the bottom but I figured it was worth a shot. If you're missing a blue shirt with white stripes on the sleeves, it's on this island on Candlewood Lake, somewhere in Brookfield. 

A Curious Excursion in an Underground Brookfield Tunnel

Recently, I was having a discussion with a friend of mine, I told this person I'd accessed some caves and tunnels in my hometown of Brewster, NY which is just over the NY/CT State Line. He knows how much I love local history, and saw how excited I was about this journey. He told me there was an area of Brookfield, CT that I needed to see, one that most residents have never seen. He told me about a tunnel, one that was not far away from where we were sitting. I made note of the conversation and bookmarked the destination for a future trip.
