Have you picked up a copy of your Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here's what you're missing:
*Two local families believe that the Town of Cheshire was negligent in not telling them their neighborhood sits atop an old mine. The case has not progressed very far, as one court already threw the action against the Town out, but now the residents' complaints have a new and very important audience. Read what body just heard the case, and what is expected to happen in the future.
*The debate over the Cheshire High School boys' locker room continues as a special Town Council meeting was held last week to once again hash out the issue. However, nothing concrete was done at that meeting and it appears no work will commence on the space this year. Find out what Town officials plan to do about the space, and how concerned parents reacted to the continued inaction.
*Calvary Life Worship Center was a casualty of the 2011 winter, one of the worst recorded in the region. After the structure's roof collapsed and the facility was subsequently torn down, the future of the church was in limbo.
However, this weekend, Calvary Life will open its doors once again, as a new facility plans its first service. Learn what went in to making this new building a reality, and how the church coped with having no home for more than a year.
*Make sure you check out our editorial(s) this week, as we applaud Calvary Life for working hard to keep Cheshire as their home, and also examine how the news that Cheshire will receive state money to expand its affordable housing base is good news.
*As always, our Around Town, Sports, and Schools sections have all your local news and happenings.
