Letters to the Editor

  • From Eyesores To Eye Candy

    To the Editor: I am frankly puzzled by some of the [letters to the editor] in opposition to a mixed use project for Fair-field Hills. In the name of keeping Fairfield Hills as open space I believe some are missing the details of what could potentially be a boon for Newtown. We are o...

  • Think About Safety

    To the Editor: Living in New England this time of year we are used to a lot of rainy/snowy days. Did you know that it is a state law that your headlights must be on when it is overcast or within 30 minutes of sunrise or sunset? The reason for this is not j...

  • Realizing A Dream

    To the Editor: On Sunday, November 30th, I realized a dream of mine to show Gone with the Wind on the big screen to an enthusiastic crowd for its 75th anniversary at my favorite theater, the Edmond Town Hall. I grew up in this town and remember lining up down the block for the Disney animation films.
