    Woodbury First Selectman William "Bill" Butterly has passed away.

    Bill's brother, Barry Butterly, announced his death on Facebook.

    According to Barry, Bill passed away from a heart attack early Saturday morning.

    Bill was 75 years old.

    According to Bill's Facebook page, he had just finished the first year of his third term as First Selectman.

    Acting First Selectperson Barbara Perkinson said "we have a three member Board of Selectmen and Bill was the First Selectman. We are all from different parties. Even though we had differences of opinion, we always found a way to compromise for almost six years."

    "Bill's legacy was to always put Woodbury first. He really loved Woodbury and would always serve Woodbury. He was an advocate for the town and always wanted to solve problems, and if he couldn't, he'd pass them along to someone who could," she added.

    Perkinson said she is now the acting First Selectperson and is able to serve for 30 days.

    The Town of Woodbury's First Selectman's Office is calling for a special meeting on Monday to seek legal advice for filling the First Selectman's position.

    An American man will likely be monitored at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha after possibly being exposed to Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, officials said Saturday.

    The unidentified man, who was providing medical assistance in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has shown no symptoms of Ebola, but will be closely monitored at the medical center. 

    “This person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious,” said Dr. Ted Cieslak, an infectious diseases specialist with Nebraska Medicine, in a statement.

    Doctors will work with federal, state and county public health officials to monitor the man and secure the area so no members of the public or other patients are exposed.

    White House chief of staff John Kelly, who will depart President Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday, told The Los Angeles Times in an extensive interview published Sunday that the president never ordered him to do anything illegal and added that the proposed border wall at the center of the government shutdown fight is not as it has been portrayed.

    Kelly, set to be replaced by Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who will serve as acting chief of staff, said he made sure the president had access to detailed information prior to making decisions, even though the president says publicly that he goes with his gut instinct, NBC News reported.

    "It’s never been: The president just wants to make a decision based on no knowledge and ignorance,” Kelly said. “You may not like his decision, but at least he was fully informed on the impact."

    The retired Marine general said Trump often pressed him on his legal authority to do certain actions, asking, "Why can't we do [something] this way?" Kelly added that he was not ordered to carry out any illegal action "because we wouldn't have."

    Twenty-two-year-old Alexandra Black, a college intern who had been employed at a North Carolina zoo for approximately two weeks, was killed Sunday after a lion escaped a locked space.

    The Conservators Center in Burlington — between Greensboro and Durham — announced that the intern was killed during a routine cleaning of an animal enclosure at about 11:30 a.m. ET.

    "While a husbandry team led by a professionally trained animal keeper was carrying out a routine enclosure cleaning, one of the lions somehow left a locked space and entered the space the humans were in and quickly killed one person," the zoo said in a statement.

    The lion was shot and killed, the center said.

    It is unclear how the lion escaped its enclosure.

    We are counting down the hours to 2019 and organizers of First Night Hartford said about an inch of rain in the forecast won't wash out the New Year's fun.

    Fireworks will light up the night sky at Bushnell Park at 6 p.m. and midnight.

    If you're attending, you'll likely need to pack your rain boots and your umbrella.

    Those running First Night Hartford are keeping a close eye on the weather, but said a little rain isn't going to dampen the fun.

    Organizers said there are multiple events that are inside.

    If it does rain too hard, the Winterfest ice skating rink may have to close.

    Now in its 30th year, First Night has had its share of unwanted New Year's weather, like last year when the temperatures were in the single digits.

    "It's our 30th annual event this year. It's something people look forward to all year long so a little rain shouldn't stop anybody," said First Night Hartford Organizer Nicole Glander.

    Many are just hoping the downpours hold off until later in the night.

    "If it does rain, we will probably shorten our stay, but for the most part, we're excited. We look forward to coming," said Renee Richards, of Hartford.

    Organizers are also making safety a priority during Monday's events. Police are expected to be patrolling the grounds before the celebration even begins.

    Glander said the officers will have marked cars and unmarked cars. There will be officers that are in uniform and others that are in street clothes.

    There are events scheduled starting at 2 p.m. until midnight.

    Hartford Police have arrested a man who is accused of holding a knife to someone's throat and demanding money during an attempted robbery on Sunday night.

    Officers responded to 177 Barker Street around 9:36 p.m. after getting a report of an attempted robbery.
