In this week’s Ridgefield Press

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

  • Aimee Berger-Girvalo will challenge John Frey for Ridgefield's 111th district in the state's House of Representatives this fall. Berger Girvalo helped organize Ridgefield's chapter of the Women's March. Frey is a 10-term incumbent.
  • Besides politics, there's traffic on this week's front page: TriRidgefield will hold things up on Route 7 Sunday morning. You've been warned.
  • Speaking of familiar headlines, swastikas were found in Ballard Park last week. It is the seventh such incident in Ridgefield since November 2016.
  • In sports, Ridgefield's baseball team won its games Monday and Wednesday to advance to the state's quarterfinals.
  • The boys lacrosse team got thumped by New Canaan last week in the FCIAC semifinals. Their state tournament starts this week.
  • Scotland parents protested teacher turnover at Monday's Board of Education meeting. Elsewhere in the district, the schools decided they would be a day short of the state's mandated 180 classroom days. Mother Nature is their excuse. Now the state just has to sign a waiver.
