To the Editor:
The Candlewood Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited has been working with town, state and federal agencies to protect the waters of Newtown for more than a decade. During that time we have raised over $250,000 for this work and community members have volunteered thousands of hours to restore and protect habitat along Deep Brook, the Pootatuck River, and Pond Brook.

With the endorsement of the Connecticut Senate in the final hours of the 2014 legislative session, the Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation is one step closer to establishing a permanent animal sanctuary in Newtown.
Provided Governor Dannel Malloy signs off on the action and subsequent administrative reviews and approvals occur, the foundation established in the memory of the young 12/14 victim will receive a conveyance of 34.44 acres of state agricultural property adjacent to Newtown’s animal control facility and newly christened dog park.
