Authorities say they ended an illegal dental operation in the Hat City. That Danbury Police Department says Hugo Moraes-DeLima was performing dental procedures out of a room at the La Quinta Hotel. The press release states, cops raided the hotel room on Sunday April 16th 2023 and found a man who claimed he was conducting dental referrals. The presser goes on to say:

"When officers entered the occupants room, they found an impromptu operating set up with dental drills, suction machines and a portable X-ray machine. Officers also located numerous bottles of amoxicillin and other medications. While speaking with the suspect, a male exited the bathroom with gauze in his mouth, stating he had just had a dental procedure." 

I've never heard of anything like this happening in Danbury before. Yes, this kind of thing happens, but it's usually in Florida or Pennsylvania, not the D-Block. I was late to the news, meaning I was out of the office when the press release dropped. I was in no position to break this story, be second or even third to publish. At that point, it's usually best to just move on and put your gaze downfield, but I still felt like I had something to offer with this news.

P.S. There is a serious underlying question, is dental work too expensive for the average family to afford? I say yes. I am not a wealthy man and I'm right on the line of not being able to afford it. Are healthy teeth only for the wealthy? If your only two choices were agony or an illegal hotel dentist, what would you do? If you had to choose between losing your two front teeth or having them fixed at the La Quinta, what would you do? I'm trying to save all of the dentist money we can for the kids. If something goes horribly wrong with my teeth, I probably can't afford to fix them. I'll see you at the La Quinta!

Danbury Area Folks Share Their NFL Fandom for Playoffs

I am an Oakland/LA/Las Vegas Raiders fan, and have been since I was a kid and I'm often outnumbered in NFL conversations, but not completely alone. In the NFL, there are fans of all kinds in every city in America.

Before the Raiders losing playoff game against the Bengals last weekend, I reached out to my friends who are Raiders fans and asked them to send me a photo of them wearing a jersey or celebrating the team in some way. I had a great response and it kicked off a fun sports conversation but it was for Raiders fans only.

I wanted to give the same opportunity to all NFL fans in the Greater-Danbury area, whether their team was in the playoffs or not. I sent out the call on my radio show and on social media and these are the responses I got back.
