In this week’s Ridgefield Press

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

  • The Ridgefield High School girls soccer team won the program's first-ever state title on Saturday, and the Tigers are pictured front and center on this week's page one. Let it roar girls!
  • The Ridgefield Walker, known by many on Main Street for his jovial conversations and interactions over the last two decades, extended a thank you to residents this week for the support they've shown him over the last four months.
  • First comes Thanksgiving, then comes the annual tree lighting ceremony on Main Street. The tradition will take place Friday night in front of Town Hall. Nine year old Brooke Blake will be this year's honoree.
  • The Route 35 bridge has caused headaches for Ridgefield drivers for two years now but things are looking up: On Saturday, the state unveiled the newly-repaired bridge that will hopefully reduce the awful alternating one-way traffic at the site. We're not in the clear yet though: the state predicts work on the site to last through next spring. Oh no!
