Volunteers, from left, Adrian Szepietowski, Guy Veneruso, Craig Schultz and Len Sabia, work on the installation of 26 stars on the roof of the Sandy Hook fire station Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, in Newtown, Conn. The stars were made and installed by a group of local contractors to honor the memory of the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting. Nearly three weeks after the shooting rampage, classes are set to begin again for the Sandy Hook students Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 at a repurposed school in the neighboring town of Monroe.
