    John Pierz was dressed for the occasion, and the weather, for the annual Turkey Trot on a chilly Thanksgiving morning.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Does Newtown have the most polite drivers? We’ll soon find out. NHS Principal Charles Dumais announced this week that the high school will be running a “traffic experiment” the mornings of November 25, November 26, and November 27. The school has coordinated the experiment with the Newtown Police Department, Newtown High School Security, and All-Star Transportation, according to Mr Dumais. During those mornings there will be NO traffic control officer in place.

  • Annual Turkey Trot Returning Thanksgiving Morning

    The Fourth Annual Turkey Trot 5K Road Race, in support of C.H. Booth Library, will be held on Thanksgiving morning, November 28, at 7:45 am.

    The course remains the same as last year’s with a start at Hawley Elementary School, a downhill stretch on Main Street past the flagpole, and the finish at Newtown Middle School. A steep hill on Schoolhouse Road at the start of the course and another long hill on Grand Place at the end of the course will guarantee that all runners will earn their stuffing on Thanksgiving Day.
