News-Times, meet your new competition...

Ladies and gentlemen, Mark Langois is back!
Welcome to Danbury.patch.com, a website devoted to news and events in the city of Danbury.

This exclusive Danbury website is interactive, so if you want to announce a meeting, click on announcements. You have an event people should attend? Click on events and add it to the site. New baby? Excellent. Announce it and add photographs in the announcement area. Too busy to put it up? Send it to me. I'll take care of it.

Look over the categories across the top of the page. Are we covering enough sports? Let me know. If business tops your agenda, tell me. Do we have it covered? If neighborhoods are your thing, give me the down low on your neighborhood. I heard this week that Connecticut Avenue in Danbury is a hidden gem that nobody knows about. Perhaps the people who live there are up to speed on it. I'll check.

If you don't see it on the site, and it has to do with Danbury, please tell me. I want it on the site.

I've lived in Danbury since 1995, and my daughter went to Stadley Rough and Broadview Middle School. She entered Danbury High School in September and we're pretty excited about that. We've had a great experience with Danbury schools and we've loved living in the city.

On my drive downtown, I ride by Augie's Numero Uno, an Italian restaurant with a great $29 two-person dinner special. The sauce is fresh and the joint is slamming. Next comes WestConn, where I earned my master's degree. Up above is Danbury Hospital, and the combination of those two establishments will have a huge impact for growth in Danbury and for traffic in that part of town. Finally I reach Main Street, where I like finding neon signs advertising merchandise in Spanish or Portuguese. I like Main Street and its wide range of offerings, because my hometown had no traffic light when I was growing up and only one store.

Danbury.patch.com is a 24-7 news operation, so let me know if something happened, or better yet, when something is coming. I'll try to get there myself or I'll find someone to send.

Look for me around town. That's where you'll find me.

Bookmark the Danbury Patch! ...oh, don't forget about bookmarking the Bethel Patch as well.

Things are about to become VERY interesting in Greater Danbury...

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
