Have you gotten your copy of The Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here is what you are missing:
*The Cheshire Town Council approved nearly $40 million in Capital Budget spending earlier this week. Find out which projects made the cut, and which didn't.
*The Cheshire School District is in the midst of discussing a new contract for teachers at the town's public schools, but one negotiation between the District and employee union wrapped up fairly quickly. Learn about the new contract for school administrators, and what it means going forward.
*The Neighbor to Neighbor Challenge has been encouraging residents and businesses to "go green" for a few years now, providing rewards for efforts made. Temple Beth David headed that "challenge" and was recently awarded certain benefits because of it. Read what they won and what they did to be recognized.
*Each month, we feature our Blast from the Past column, where we look at a piece of Cheshire history. This week, we dedicated our Blast column to Ron Paolillo, made famous by his role as Horshack on the popular 1970s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. Paolillo, who died recently of an apparent heart attack, began his acting career in Cheshire, and his exploits routinely made the pages of The Cheshire Herald. Read about Paolillo's early life in Cheshire, and how that influenced his successful professional career.
*In this week's editorial, we examine U.S. Congressman Chris Murphy's (D-5) woefully attendance record when it comes to hearings held by the 110th Congress and address whether his numerous absences can be explained away.
*As always, check out our Around Town and Sports sections for all your local news and happenings, and look for the return of our Schools section next week.
