New York Times columnist Peter Applebome features Newtown in a news story on the Connecticut power outage. It's titled "Frustration in Connecticut as Wait for Power Drags On" and it's on page A22 of the Nov. 8, 2011 edition.
The article quotes Sue Marcinek, the executive assistant of First Selectman Pat Llodra, noted bluegrass banjo player and folk singer Roger Sprung, retired engineer Ralph Rand, carpenter Tom Telesco and high school English teacher Paul Doniger.
The national newspaper is one of many media outlets that have visited Newtown and written stories on the widespread outages following the October snow storm.
It's the 11th day without power for some homes. At about this same time period following Tropical Storm Irene, all of Newtown finally had its electricity restored – the length of outages following this storm has officially surpassed Irene.
As of 6 a.m. Tuesday, 45 Connecticut Light & Power customers in town were in the dark.
