To the Editor:
I would like to thank The Newtown Bee in regards to their coverage of the recent bomb threats on Sandy Hook Elementary School. Although this can be a hard topic to return to, The Bee reported with objectivity and taste. It was detailed, informative, and went above and beyond the coverage of many mainstream news sites with in-depth reporting of the debriefing for parents and the terroristic nature of the threat.

Artist and resident Jim Chillington propped his easel on the sidewalk outside The Newtown Bee at 5 Church Hill Road and quickly sketched a view. Taking shape on his canvas was the newspaper’s façade, and in quick strokes the branches of a Japanese Maple and the busy knots of flowers along the sidewalk. Leaning in with bold strokes, he dashed out the lines of Church Hill Road, topped by the flagpole. The end result will be a vivid oil painting.
