Even though daily checks on air quality will be followed, and an immediate shutdown would occur in case of a leak, there is a risk to our young children and to teachers. If one child, or one teacher, is affected, that is one too many.
To the Editor: This letter is being sent to share our experiences with fellow Newtowners so that perhaps they can be more prepared than we were when my husband was being discharged from Danbury Hospital for rehabilitation after surgery. We had chosen a wel...
To the Editor: It is with great disappointment that I reflect on the first failed round of the referendum vote. After personally attending countless Board meetings again this year and listening to the discussions once again about the state of our schools, ...
