Welcome to the online home of Neighbors.

A little history...

The first edition of Neighbors was published in August 1983. Unfortunately, it was a financial disaster. For the rest of the 20th century I sporadically published 13 editions. In May of 2003 I retired from a career working with the developmentally disabled for the State of Connecticut. It was only then that I was able to devote the time and energy needed to work on the paper. Today Neighbors is a free, bi-monthly, community publication serving a large area of northeastern Connecticut and has been published continuously since July 2003. 

About the paper...

Neighbors is dependent on the writing of area writers, all volunteers, for its content. Fortunately, we have a core of several writers who write for every issue and many others who write when they can. Poetry and photography of area residents is also an important component of the paper. None of this would be possible without the support of many local businesses. I am very thankful to all our advertisers, some of whom have been with me since the beginning. Over the last several years the newspaper industry, in general, has been declining. Many daily papers and other periodicals across the U.S. are gone. I have made many changes to the paper and how it is produced in order to ensure it survives in this extremely difficult economic climate. We are always looking for submissions of all kinds-writing, poetry, photography and flash fiction. And, of course, we are always seeking out local businesses that appreciate Neighbors and want to be a part of it.
