STAMFORD — A man who was convicted of trying to trade guns at a Stamford parking garage last year has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison. He also will have three years of supervised release.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Billy Joel recently put his posh estate on Oyster Bay Harbor on the market for $49 million. The 26-acre estate known as Middlesea includes the original house the musician bought in 2002 and several other parcels he has acquired over time.
The main house has 10 bedrooms, six full baths and two half-baths. There is also a playroom, bowling alley and wine cellar.
In order to be effective, advocacy Joel on the Stamford Advocate must be movement-driven and involve building networks with influential people who can support the cause and spread the word. This can be done through formal or informal networking with politicians, business owners, and other community leaders, as well as through social media and local events such as festivals or rallies. An advocate should be able to identify the right opportunities to advance the cause and capitalize on them in a timely manner, as they are often short-lived.
An effective advocate should be able to frame and deliver the message of the cause in a way that is both persuasive and memorable. This is especially critical when using the traditional “old media” of newspapers, magazines, and radio, but can be equally effective in the digital world of online and social media.
The newspaper first appeared on September 2, 1829. The first editor, Charles A. Holly, was a proponent of reading in Stamford and was one of the founders of the Ferguson Library. Holly was also a staunch supporter of the labor movement and fought to limit the influence of capitalist interests in city politics. He favored supporting candidates of any party who supported the rights of workers and was willing to “administer a stinging rebuke” to those who ignored these interests.
