We want to extend a big heartfelt thank you to all the parents and children that attended the Create a Bear event on Saturday, April 13th making it a success.
When the event first started we encountered technical difficulties with the machine that stuffs the bears and being short on volunteers things looked a little bleak, but quite of few of the parents who were there stepped right in and helped, a big thank you to them! The parents also emailed, phoned, and face booked friends of the event.
To the Editor,
I have been away for a number of months, so I am unaware if this idea has been put forward. I note the beautiful job being done in Sandy Hook Center on a new stone wall. I was wondering if we could rename the wall as “The Sandy Hook Memorial Wall,” in recognition of all that so tragically lost their lives in the terrible events that occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

On Thursday, April 11, I had the chance to sit in on a hearing of the Newtown Ordinance Committee, having been invited by three resident friends. I wrote to them afterward, and they felt that you might like to hear my comments also.
I appreciated the chance to observe a local group striving to deal with the issue of legal use of guns within their jurisdiction. Their efforts on a local stage can support and inform the larger nationwide debate. Newtown is acting responsibly in a worthy cause. Keep up the good work. Newtown is a small stage, but your voices resound today.
To the Editor:
Newtown voters, please come out and join us in voting “Yes” for the 2013-2014 Board of Education budget on April 23rd.
It is important to recognize that this budget will allow the Board of Education to address current needs, such as replacing obsolete technology. It also allows for the implementation of initiatives such as full-day kindergarten. As we continue through our recovery process, it is also important to note that there is money to address security needs at our schools within the budget. It is a budget that is needed at this time.
