Hearst Connecticut's local newspapers arrive on doorsteps three times a week to equip its readers with The Constitution State’s latest news, sports, and entertainment. Discover local, national, and world headlines, or search for new rides and part-time landscaping work in the extensive classifieds section. Tips on gardening and food preparation fill the Living section in the Connecticut Post, awarded Newspaper of the Year in 2010 by the New England Newspaper and Press association, and the News-Times' Opinion section brings a voice to residents in the greater Danbury areas with letters to the editor. Readers search for local theater productions in the Arts section of the Stamford Advocate, a community publication founded in 1829, or eyes can turn toward Greenwich Time to read the thoughts of its variety of columnists, who stand over readers' shoulders and melodically read their articles about national politics.
Open up a New Haven Register and you'll find daily, in-depth coverage of local, national, and world events, as well as thoughtful editorial insights and information on regional cultural events. Founded in 1812, the Register prides itself on being one of the oldest continuously published papers in the United States. Given its age, the newspaper has a colorful history, including the tenure of press baron John Day Jackson as owner in the early 20th century and the printing of local duel announcements in the 1800s. Today, the venerable publication reaches readers across Connecticut with print and digital formats, filling brains with the latest updates in sports, politics, business, and entertainment.
The Hartford Courant keeps Connecticut's citizens up to date on state, regional, and national happenings with extensive news coverage supplemented by sections on sports, politics, and culture. The paper's in-depth news and editorial sections sharpen minds and widen perspectives, and Sunday's panoply of coupon savings slashes grocery bills and keeps restless shears from snipping away at hair. The sports section chronicles the triumphs and failures of professional athletes and local high-school football and soccer teams, and old editions can be shredded into pompoms for cheering on the UConn Huskies' basketball team. In addition to its fresh-off-the-presses news stories, the Hartford Courant promotes well-rounded leisure with listings of local entertainments and tips on cooking, health, and travel.

In her native Holland, Susan Occhino grew up surrounded by flowers. Her passion for these colorful blooms led her to craft arrangements at a top Holland boutique. Upon moving to America, she opened Dutch Flower Lady, where she imports plants directly from Holland. That means, instead of American flowers, her shop stocks exotic florae such as organic dahlia tubers and narcissus bulbs, which can only grow while facing a mirror. These she creatively assembles into eye-catching, customized arrangements for every type of occasion, from weddings and Mother's Day to Bar Mitzvahs and Valentine's Day.
