    It seemed an unusual time for a power outage. There were no storms or accidents. But at 3:30 pm, on Tuesday, October 31, a tree limb fell on a wire on Church Hill Road, shutting down power in the center of Newtown. Major streets affected included not only Church Hill Road in the center of town, but also Queen Street, Commerce Road, The Boulevard, and Wire Road, as well as other residential streets. Power was not restored until 4:12 pm.

    Amie came home. Jim and Jo Morris of Russett Road wondered whether they’d ever see their cat again, after they found that boa constrictor on their porch on September 20. When they noticed a slight bulge in the boa, they started to worry. On Saturday, however, Jo said Amie “casually walked in like she hadn’t even been gone.” As for the boa, it was returned to its owner, Greg Oliger of Lakeview Terrace, on September 21.

    Authorities still are waiting for laboratory results from samples taken at the scene of The Smoke Shop, which was damaged in a fire August 31. Although the cause of the fire remains suspicious, Deputy Fire Marshal William Halstead said that at this point, he won’t be able to definitively label the fie as arson unless the testing shows that an accelerant was used to start the fire.
