HauntedChurch2954.jpg

NEW HAVEN — In one of the most famous images associated with the Salem Witch Trials, lightning strikes through the fanlight window of an austere New England meeting room, unchaining a woman accused of witchcraft and knocking her inquisitor to the floor.

Closer to constantly looking over her shoulder for the man she’s been trying to escape from for around two years.

By John Flowers



MiddPolice2963.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police got some reinforcements last week from an unlikely source — Ireland.

Actually, Constable Gavin Todd of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) wasn’t there to participate as much as to observe.
