  • The Top of the Mountain

    Is it my imagination, or did all of the maple trees outside of C.H. Booth Library suddenly dump their leaves in the gutters this week? Looks like foliage season is going to be swift this year.

  • Help And Kindness

    (The following letter to Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra has been received for publication.)

    To First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra:

    Newtown Animal Municipal Control Officer Carolee Mason. Words fail me but you didn’t.

  • Top of the Mountain

    Little Sophia Lasaro has donated the gifts she received at a recent birthday party to Western Connecticut Health Network Foundation, and according to Diane Burke of the Network, Sophia hopes her donation brightens the day of the kids who receive them. Sophia’s donation benefits pediatric patients at Danbury Hospital, and helps make the hospital experience a bit less scary for the kids.  In recognition of Sophia’s generosity, she has been inducted into the Danbury Hospital’s Kids Care Club.

  • A Place Of Care And Love For Animals

    To the Editor:

    I am a volunteer at the Newtown Animal Shelter, and I write to share some news and to invite the public of Newtown to visit their shelter. Carolee Mason and her crew of devoted animal lovers have created a place of care and love, and the animal lovers of Newtown (and far and wide), have built a wonderful new facility where the dogs and cats can live comfortably until they are claimed and welcomed into forever homes.
