  • Keep Newtown's Halloween Authentic

    To the Editor:

    There is nothing quite as authentic as Halloween on Newtown's charmingly bucolic Main Street. The way residents spookily garland their homes, the care with which families conceive and construct their costumes, the generous dispatch of candy – all of it speaks of community. It is a genuine coming-together of a special town.

  • A Great Time At The Movies

    To the Editor:

    We had to wait a while for the start of the movie.  It seemed that the free popcorn developed a line from the concession stand, across the lobby and down the side hall.  The wait was well worth it.

    We sat with 181 other attendees who were laughing uproariously along with us. We did find the tombstone with Cary Grant’s real name on it! The fact that a 1944 movie can still do that to us jaded viewers is a testament to the great movie selections made by the Cultural Arts Commission and espe-cially Jen Rogers.

  • A First-Rate Film Festival

    To the Editor,

    A note of appreciation goes out to founder Cristin Carlin and all those involved in The Newtown Film Festival, organizers and artists, alike. What a grand array of artistry and creativity last weekend on Main Street! One cannot find this kind of quality and variety, in subject and style, on the screen anywhere but at a first-rate film festival such as this one.  How fortunate we were to be enchanted, inspired and entertained by these remarkable works--right here in our town!

  • Facilities Panel: Scrap Hook & Ladder HQ, Renovate Multipurpose Building

    It appears Newtown’s Municipal Building Strategic Plan Committee is poised to recommend the current Hook & Ladder headquarters behind Edmond Town Hall be abandoned for future town use once the volunteer fire company relocates to new quarters next year. The panel, however, agrees the community should invest in several key improvements to the Multipurpose Building on Riverside Road — currently housing the town’s Senior Center and the Adventure Center preschool.
