- FUN FEATURES
If you haven't picked up your copy of The Cheshire Herald yet today, here is what you are missing:
*Joshua Komisarjevsky was sentenced to death last week. Find out what kind of reaction there was to the announcement.
*There is still plenty of debris lying around Cheshire, left over from the Autumn Nor'easter that dumped an unprecedented amount of snow on the region. Learn how the Town has decided to deal with the large wood piles that have accumulated at some of the drop-off points around Cheshire.
*Town government usually takes a break from politics around the holidays. However, once New Year's Day is past, officials gear up for budget talks. See how members of the Town Council and Board of Education are preparing for perhaps the largest issue on the agenda in this coming year: labor negotiations.
*Cheshire High School student Theresa Fitzpatrick battled cancer over the last year. During the process, she had the opportunity, through the Make a Wish Foundation, to have one of her dreams come true. Find out what that was.
*Don't forget to check out our editorial this week, where we look at how the sentence in the Komisarjevsky trial will affect Cheshire, and our weekly feature, Editor's Notebook, where we examine New Haven Mayor John DeStefano's fight against a new federal government measure that would require local police to check the citizenship of immigrants arrested for other crimes.
*You can find all your community new in our Sports, Around Town, and Schools section of the paper.
