NORFOLK — While most non-golfers don’t know A.W. Tillinghast from A& W Root Beer, for those who swing the sticks in a determined quest for par, “Tillie” is a big name in the golf architecture business. It’s a treat to play one of his courses.

But perhaps even the golfers among us do not know that Tillinghast is credited with one of the area’s most historic and oldest courses, the nine-hole layout at Norfolk Country Club (NCC).

A little background on Tillinghast: He laid out such notable major golf tournament venues as the Bethpage...

Municipal legal ads help ensure against corruption

Connecticut’s law requiring municipal governments to place legal notices in newspaper ads presumes that democracy needs people to know what their government is doing.
