  • River Walk Condo Proposal Draws Mixed Response

    While members of the local business community are voicing strong support for the construction of a condominium complex proposed for Sandy Hook Center, some Sandy Hook residents continue to urge that the developer significantly cut the number of dwellings proposed, although he has already scaled down the project.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    The kids around town are probably not very concerned about the bus routes yet, but some parents are already eagerly awaiting the 2015-16 bus schedule. Don’t fret — the information is on its way, and will be found in the Back to School supplement to The Newtown Bee, later this month, if you haven’t seen it at the school website. There will be plenty of notice to make sure school kids are waiting at the right place, at the right time. So, relax, and enjoy the summer days still to come.

  • Sandy Hook Trees Cast Holiday Light

    Wet streets glistened on Saturday, December 6, as a chilly rain soaked revelers at the annual Sandy Hook Village Holiday Tree Lighting. Dozens of umbrellas opened as small crowds gathered on sidewalks, counting down from 10 until the trees — one with green and white lights and the other strung with traditional rainbow lights — lit the night. Adding to Sandy Hook Center’s holiday appeal are newer lampposts wound with lights and strands of evergreen.

    With forecasts calling for more rain this weekend, organizers of the Sandy Hook Village Tree Lighting say this weekend’s event will go on rain or shine.

  • Running Down Some Halloween Treats

    Three young girls dressed as Elsa, one of the princesses in Disney's Frozen, run toward one of their candy destinations last weekend during the Fourth Annual Sandy Hook Halloween Walk. Girls in the light blue gowns seemed to be everywhere for a few hours on October 25, as children dressed up to give their costumes a trial run (literally, in this case) in a daytime event in Sandy Hook Center. Nearly two dozen local businesses welcomed visitors through their doors.
