NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Newtown parents Steven Uhde and Peter Barresi didn't want the town to abandon the Sandy Hook Elementary School property where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in December and build a new school elsewhere, saying that would be like letting the gunman win.
So they were glad Friday night when a task force of 28 local elected officials voted unanimously in favor of a plan calling for tearing down Sandy Hook School and constructing a new building on the same property.
