Newtown's year: Horror, grief and tough choices
Updated Dec 10, 06:30 AM
NEWTOWN, Conn. - A year later, inside the big house on Berkshire Road, dolls fill the shelves of a living room and flowers and rainbows decorate a kitchen window, next to a little girl's name: Avielle.
But so, too, do the 26 bronze stars that sit atop the local firehouse, one for each adult and child gunned down at a school one unimaginable day.
Ribbons of green - the Sandy Hook Elementary School color - stay tied to mailboxes and storefronts, just as a curly-haired girl smiles from a framed photograph that remains atop a mantel inside Jeremy Richman's century-old home.

Bears beat Cowboys 45-28 on Ditka Day
Updated Dec 10, 01:38 AM
CHICAGO - Neither the brutal cold nor the league's worst defense could stop Josh McCown and the Bears.
McCown threw for a career-high four touchdowns, and the Bears scored on their first eight possessions to grab a share of the NFC North lead with a 45-28 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on a frigid Monday night.
The Bears (7-6) retired Hall of Famer Mike Ditka's number at halftime and pulled even with Detroit in the division race on a night when the game-time temperature was in single digits and the wind chill factor was below zero.
