In this week’s Ridgefield Press
On the front page of this week’s Ridgefield Press:
Here’s a look at some of the headlines from this week’s Ridgefield Press:
- This year's Memorial Parade grand marshal is a Navy air vet who served in Vietnam. Dave Campbell recounted his time abroad in an interview with The Press this week, and spoke about everything he's done since moving to Ridgefield in the 1970s.
- The parade, which has been washed out for the last two years, has an indoor plan this year in case Mother Nature doesn't want to cooperate again.
- A Ridgefield postal worker lost his home in last week's storm. A GoFundMe account has been created to raise $10,000 while he and his wife try to find temporary shelter.
- The macroburst closed roads, damaged cars, and left thousands of homes powerless in northern Ridgefield. First Selectman Rudy Marconi and Emergency Director Dick Aarons access the damage done, and how long it will take for the town to look — and feel — normal again.
- Friday's shooting in Texas put a dark cloud on last week's prom for Ridgefield High School students. Junior Dackerie Bowes discussed her feelings about the latest incident of school violence.
- The high school's third quarter honor roll is inside this week's Press.
- Ridgefield police had a busy week: a car was stolen (the fifth of 2018) and a robbery took place at the Subway in Branchville.
- In sports, the boys lacrosse team defeated Greenwich Monday to advance to the FCIAC semifinals.
