In this week’s Ridgefield Press

Here’s a look at some of the headlines from this week’s Ridgefield Press:

  • SummerFest returns to Main Street Saturday. The Chamber of Commerce's annual extravaganza features a touch-a-truck event for kids, sidewalk sales, and plenty of live music.
  • Parking changes have been made in the village. Make sure you know where to leave your car — and for how long — to avoid getting a ticket.
  • It's almost political season. Inside this week's Press is a primer for August's primaries. Out of town? Get an absentee ballot next week at the town clerk's office.
  • Speaking of the clerk, the Republicans will interview candidates next month to replace Barbara Serfilippi who is retiring Aug. 31.
  • The selectmen will also look at some potential replacements for the position.
  • They'll also host a town meeting next week to determine whether or not Nod Hill Brewery gets food trucks.
  • There's a People section this week. In it, The Press writes about a tea shop that's seeking a new owner, a Ridgefielder who was named Professor of the Year in Bridgeport, and a Ridgefield High School graduate who is volunteering overseas for two years.
