• Newtown Public Schools Closed Tuesday

    Newtown Public Schools will be closed Tuesday, December 10, due to the weather. 

  • Quick Clean-Up Appreciated

    To the Editor:

     I would like to commend the local stores which totally cleared all the snow out of their parking lots after the recent blizzard. I observed the Big Y, for example, use huge dump trucks in the early morning hours removing great heaps of snow that had accumulated during and after the storm. This kept sight lines clear and sidewalks less hazardous.

  • Weekend Blizzard Was One For The Books

    Blizzard Nemo is one for the record books. Seven of Connecticut’s eight counties reported record-breaking levels of snow, said Governor Dannel P. Malloy during an evening press conference at the state armory on Saturday, February 9.

    Preliminary maximum snowfall and wind gusts for Fairfield County were announced as 35 inches and 82 miles per hour, respectively, as of 12:45 pm Saturday.

  • Intense Storm Leaves Many Without Power

    A high-intensity storm bearing strong winds and heavy rains blasted through town early Thursday morning, bringing down power lines in scattered locations, creating electrical outages.

    As of 11 am on Thursday, 1,280 customers, or 11 percent, of the Connecticut Light & Power Company’s (CL&P) local customers were without power as utility crews worked to restore electrical service.

    At 6:30 am, 12 percent of local customers had been without electricity.
