Letters to the Editor

  • Brotherhood Among Police Officers

    To the Editor: On Monday night approximately 100 police officers from 20 departments around the state had the opportunity to play a game of touch football on the field at MetLife Stadium. It was a wonderful way for our union to say thanks to our fellow officers for all the assistance given to us after 12/14.

  • Letters of Endorsement

    Local endorsements for candidates in the 2013 Newtown elections.

  • A Successful Cabaret Night

    To the Editor: We would like to thank everyone who came to Cabaret Night at the library on Friday, October 11, to support the Newtown Lions Foundation Sandy Hook Elementary Fund. We are pleased that everyone had a good time and that we were able to raise $870 for the fund.

  • Impressed By The Junior NAA

    To the Editor: Recently, my husband and I travelled to Washington, DC with the Newtown Action Alliance, accompanied by a sizable group of high school students associated with the Junior NAA. These students, many of whom are AP students, gave up two days out of their busy fall schedules to meet with members of Congress and advocate for background checks to help reduce gun violence in our country.

  • Natural Gas Lines Coming To Sandy Hook?

    To the Editor: As a Sandy Hook homeowner I am contacting [Sandy Hook residents] today to let you know that there is the possibility of natural gas coming to our area within certain areas within the next year.

  • Pick Any Other Day For Advocacy

    To the Editor: I firmly believe in our Second Amendment rights. I also come from a family of gun-owners and believe that, in certain circumstances, guns can absolutely save lives. However, the recent news of multiple organizations hosting “Guns Save Lives Day” on December 14th, of all days possible, is extremely worrisome. It seems like no fluke that they would happen to choose this particular day (of the 365 they could have chosen from).

  • Newtown Ignores Columbus Day

    To the Editor: I am writing this on Columbus Day, celebrated throughout Connecticut, but not in Newtown. There is a parade today in Bridgeport. Another parade in Bethel. The Sycamore will serve brunch with Italian music playing in the background. A quick check of local web sites shows me that Bethel, Brookfield,. Danbury and most Connecticut schools are closed. In New York City, the Columbus Day Parade will be marching in Manhattan! Yet in Newtown, Columbus Day passes with no recognition. Schools are open and parades cannot even be attended by locals.

  • Help Newtown Protect Its Wetlands

    To the Editor: I am writing to invite residents of Newtown to join Newtown’s Inland Wetlands Commission. We currently have two vacancies, one for a Democrat and one for a Republican. Unaffiliated voters may also fill either vacancy.

    Endorsements for the 2013 local election

  • Vast Majority Of Motorcyclists Are Responsible

    To the Editor: As a responsible motorcyclist, I am writing about the incident that occurred in New York City on Sunday, September 29, involving an SUV driver and some motorcyclists. I am troubled by the serious injuries caused by the SUV driver and by the actions of some motorcyclists who apparently decided to take the law into their own hands
