- Whether you crave just a little excitement or a truly white-knuckled experience, Connecticut's whitewater may have something for you. Most of Connecticut's stretches of whitewater are of the tamer variety, given the absence of towering mountains contributing months of steady snow melt. Most whitewater opportunities here depend on being times of good flow. Still, there are plenty of fun rapids for whitewater rafters, kayakers, canoeists, inner tubers and even riverboarders to shoot

As Last Sunday Mass Approaches, Parishioners Of Suffield Church Fight To Keep It Open

- For parishioners of Saint Joseph Church, one the hardest things about having it close as part of the Hartford Archdiocese's major reorganization plan is that simply getting the church started was a struggle. The century-old Catholic church was founded by Polish immigrants who flooded into Suffield in the late 1800s. They came to work on the farms in Suffield that once dominated the town and in the process, transformed it into a community with a large non-English speaking population
