There is a pretty impressive set of ears on Tess Guiser, the canine star playing the part of Toto in the upcoming Newtown Middle School production of The Wizard of Oz. (She’s a Papillon, which is French for butterfly, if that gives you an idea.) But don’t be confused during the play, once Dorothy gets swept to Oz — Tess takes a break and lets another “pooch” pose as Toto. The Wizard of Oz is scheduled for performances at 7 pm, March 15 and 16, and a 2 pm performance on March 17.

Newtown Youth Wrestling Association has a new website. As it Tweeted on February 27, “We have a new website w/a catchy name! http://www.newtownyouthwrestling.com go there often & learn things.” Will do! I’ll bet you didn’t know I’ve honed my tweeting skills, but how else can I follow the “tweet tweeting” of Newtowners… and tweety birds?

Monroe Police Department Officers Todd Keeping and Mike Panza have been nominated for The Good Egg Award, and I say they fit the (duck) bill. Both officers are stationed at Sandy Hook School, located at Monroe’s Chalk Hill Middle School, and both have been supplying students with smiles by way of rubber ducks.

The Newtown High School Winter Guard will have its next bottle and can drive this weekend, at three locations. Team mom Robin Allen called this week to let us know, however, that this weekend’s collection will run for two hours instead of the regular three. Team members and parents will be set up at the parking lots of Newtown High School, Newtown Middle School, and Reed Intermediate School on Saturday from 10 am until noon. They will be thrilled with any donation of clean, returnable cans and bottles.
