Police in Waterbury are dealing with a crime spree that started just before midnight. At that time, an officer responded to a complaint of gunshots in the area of the Waterbury Pharmacy. A federal appeals court that covers Vermont, New York and Connecticut says the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. A Facebook petition asking Green Mountain College to spare Bill and Lou - a beloved oxen team - from slaughter has racked up more than 30-thousand signatures from all over the world. But school officials say they won't change their minds.  They say using the oxen to feed students has generated an important dialogue about meat, where it comes from and how it's raised.
