Historic Inauguration Set For Nov. 13 — Public invited

The public is invited to attend the 2017 Inauguration of newly elected city officials.

The Inauguration will be held at Bristol Eastern High School on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium.

The Courant reported Zoppo-Sassu said “The inauguration is Monday night, the first council meeting is Tuesday, I want to meet with our department heads — it’s going to be busy, I wanted to do this at the Memorial Boulevard School, but there’s a question about the elevator. It’s looking like Bristol Eastern instead.”

Ellen Zoppo-Sassu will be the first female Mayor of Bristol.

On Election Day, DTC Chairman Dean Kilbourne said“Tonight, Bristol has made history. We have elected our first female Mayor.”

Zoppo-Sassu said “I think all we can say is that the people have spoken.”

Self-lubricating condoms may be the answer in helping prevent sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies, researchers have found. In a step away from the traditional water- or oil-based condoms currently on the market, a team of scientists from Boston University has created a condom that is self-lubricating, becoming slippery when it comes into contact with moisture — for example, bodily fluids. The team assessed the performance of the condoms when faced with friction and then surveyed 33 people who felt the condoms […]
