    In the final minutes of a marathon five hour meeting May 3 that started with some raw and emotional input from Sandy Hook School staff, a Newtowner who played a key role on 12/14 sat down before a school building task force and described what he was witnessing.

    Gene Rosen, who found six students from the school in his neighboring driveway that fateful December morning and sheltered them until parents and police arrived, took a few moments to dial down his own emotions before he spoke.

  • Wondering Whether everw?nder Is Right For Newtown

    To the Editor:

    I'm not opposed to museums. How could I be? They are invaluable. I had objections to the proposal (spelled exactly like this, “ever?wonder”) presented to the FHA meeting, last week.

  • Make All Of Fairfield Hills A Memorial Park

    To the Editor:

    1/ Email sent January 22, 2013, to fellow members of the Fairfield Hills Authority: An Idea
