• The Top of the Mountain

    My favorite watering hole, the fountain at The Pleasance on South Main Street, is out of commission for a bit. The main stem has rusted out after these many years, and work is underway to repair it. I’m feeling mighty thirsty these hot summer days (yes, summer officially started on Sunday!) so hopefully, it won’t be long before the fountain is bubbling over again.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Newtown Hearts of Hope has partnered with the Major Stuart Adam Wolfer Institute (MSAWI), I’m told. Every ceramic Heart of Hope painted in Newtown that is going to a veteran or to active military person will now be accompanied by a very special star. Hearts of Hope are distributed as anonymous messages of comfort. MSAWI, founded by the mother and sister of its namesake, honors Major Stuart Adam Wolfer, who was killed in action in Iraq in 2008 during a tour with the Army Reserves.

  • Trick Or Treat…Or Pizza At Dickinson Park

    Witches were more concerned about candy than casting spells, and super heroes, monsters, butterflies and bumble bees shared tables to eat pizza Thursday, October 24, as dusk fell over Dickinson Park. Again this year the Parks & Recreation Department offered hayrides and threw a Halloween party for young children.
