In this week's Ridgefield Press
- Everyone's favorite small-town topic — dog poop — is back in the headlines this week. Is the town really contemplating a committee to look into the issue? You'll have to read The Press to find out.
- The empty lot on 28 Catoonah Street isn't going to be anything any time soon, the post office said.
- Broadway legend Stephen Schwartz visited high school theater performers earlier this month. This weekend they will put on his play, Pippin. Tickets are going fast — don't miss this wonderful show!
- A 2015 plane crash that claimed the lives of two Ridgefielders was caused by an aerodynamic stall, the National Transportation Safety Board concluded earlier this winter.
- The Board of Education has begun looking into later school start times, but it won't be easy.
- Speaking of the board, they balked at the selectmen's non-binding recommendation to trim more than $800,000 from the proposed 2017-18 school year budget.
- The budget was a big chunk of this week's Press — the capital budget items drew the ire of a few folks last week, the state-mandated 2.5% municipal spending cap did, too, and, lastly, the budget itself is printed its entirety inside the paper (four pages!)
- Well, what else? How about some hockey? The boys team will play in the state semifinals Friday night. They barely escaped Fairfield Prep in the quarterfinals last weekend.
