- FUN FEATURES
Have you gotten your copy of The Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here is what you are missing:
*Democrat and Cheshire resident Elizabeth Esty pulled off what many considered an upset Tuesday, as she won her party's nomination for the U.S. Congressional Fifth District seat. Read about Esty's victory and all the other races of local interest.
*The school year is about to start up, but not all the important work will be done in classes. The negotiating table will also be of interest to the Town of Cheshire, as School District administrators and the leadership for the teachers' union have begun preliminary discussions about a new contract. Learn what both sides expect when the meetings really heat up.
*The Cheshire Town Council has been debating whether to move to a new recycling system that includes larger toters for all residents. This week, the Council approved that move. Find out what that will mean for all citizens.
*Make sure to check out our editorial this week, where we discuss how voters got it right by picking Esty, primarily because they didn't pick Chris Donovan.
*As always, our Around Town and Sports sections of the paper have all your local news and happenings, and make sure to check out the next edition of our summer series entitled "The Artists Among Us."
*September is right around the corner and that means children are getting ready to head back to the classroom. As such, make sure you get a copy of our Back to School special section of the paper. Inside you'll find all the information you'll need for the upcoming year, including information on free and reduced lunch programs, the school calendar, the Board of Education schedule, a quick glimpse at all town public and private schools, and, most importantly, a complete bus schedule for every Cheshire school.
