Town to recognize and pray for the victims of the Sandy Hook School shooting in Newtown that left 27 people dead including 20 children.

"We will be hosting a vigil tonight, Saturday December 15 at 5 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial behind Town Hall, near the U.S. Flag."

"Rev. Bill Hodge will lead us. Please join us if you can. Our thoughts and prayers are with our friends in Newtown. We stand ready to help in any way we can."

Portland Town Hall is located at 33 East Main St.

"Official" prayers from the Town of Portland? Where was god when the nut-job was offing innocents? NOTHING FAILS LIKE PRAYER and the Town of Portland has absolutely no business exhorting citizens to "pray". Get off your knees and demand that the laws concerning mentally questionable people BE ENFORCED! If it's not a gun it will be a bomb (Timothy McVeigh) a car or truck, a knife, sword, club or ? The key is to identify mentally compromised people and then FOLLOW UP ON IT!!
