  • 12/14 Investigation Report Due ‘In The Fall’

    HARTFORD —On Tuesday morning, August 6, state officials involved in the investigation into the 12/14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School met to discuss the progress of the state police probe and consider when a public version of the ongoing investigation’s findings would be disclosed.

  • Governor To Be Briefed On 12/14 Probe Status

    Governor Dannel P. Malloy is expected to get an update sometime next week from officials involved in the ongoing state police probe into the 12/14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, at which time he may learn when the report will be released publicly.

    The governor would receive that update from the state’s attorney office, which is overseeing the state police investigation into the deaths of 20 first-graders and six educators at the school, according to Andrew Doba, a spokesman for the governor.

  • The Seeds Of Newtown

    The organizers of The Great Newtown Reunion, which took place on July 27 on the grounds of the Fairfield Hills Campus, spent months putting together a first-ever event that had at its heart, paradoxically, tradition. Getting together — the object of every reunion — has become an automatic impulse for Newtowners since the tragic massacre at the Sandy Hook School on December 14. As we saw at the event Saturday, it has turned out to be an impulse strong enough to drive people back to town from the far corners of the country and beyond.

  • Grateful For Kindness And Support

    To the Editor:

    The Sandy Hook School PTA would like to take this opportunity to thank some of the many people who have helped support our school community during these most challenging months since December 14th.

    We have done our best to thank every first responder who came to our rescue in December, but we realize we will never be able to adequately acknowledge them all. We will never forget all you did for us, not only on December 14th, but during the days and weeks that followed.      

  • Sandy Hook School: Nothing To See

    Cement blocks, traffic cones, and multiple warning signs across Dickinson Drive bar the curious from gaining access to Sandy Hook Elementary School. More than seven months after 12/14, visitors continue to visit Sandy Hook Center. Many are looking for a memorial and to pay their respects. Some have less than honorable reasons to visit the location.
