Have you picked up a copy of The Cheshire Herald yet today? If not, here's what you're missing:
*The Cheshire Town Council met with state representatives for the town last week to go over the legislative agenda that will be pushed in Hartford this coming year. How will that affect Cheshire in the future? Read about it this week in The Herald.
*The Cheshire Board of Education Finance Committee recommended Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Florio's budget proposal earlier this week, which would raise spending in the school district by approximately $1.8 million. The Committee also reviewed several accounts, including transportation and technology. Find out what the district has been doing to save money in those two areas.
*Over the last month several businesses in Cheshire have closed their doors. Learn why these owners are deciding to call it quits.
*Stop & Shop is looking to build a new gas station off of West Main Street, but the project has a long way to go before being approved. Read what the plans entail.
*Don't miss our editorial this week, where we discuss the importance of making the Council-State Legislators meeting a more routine happening, and our Editor's Notebook feature, where we question the real motivation behind President Barack Obama's decision to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline.
