- FUN FEATURES
Gotten you Cheshire Herald yet today? If not, here's what you're missing:
*The Cheshire Town Council seems poised to adopt a budget that is roughly $1 million less than what Town Manager Michael Milone initially proposed. Despite having been, at times, a contentious budget process, it appears the proposal is receiving tacit support from most in Town government. Find out what this will mean for everything from the school district to the mill rate in Cheshire.
*There is considerable work left to do at the Cheshire Public Library, and it appears there is no shortage bidders for it. Learn what needs to be done, and when the work is expected to be completed.
*The Cheshire Fire Department began in 1912. One hundred years later, the volunteer department is still going strong. To celebrate the anniversary, the Department is sponsoring a Fireman's Ball next week. Read what the night of festivities is expected to include.
*A local coach had his vehicle vandalized last weekend, and he isn't sitting around waiting for random leads. Find out how this coach is taking action into his own hands.
*As always, check out our editorial this week, where we look at the budget proposal and how it seems to be an acceptable compromise for all, and our Editor's Notebook weekly feature, where we examine how the word "prospective" is giving many Connecticut politicians cover during the death penalty repeal debate.
*Also, our Around Town, Sports, and Schools sections have all your local happenings and events.
