Greetings from Windham County, where spring has definitely sprung. Whether you're celebrating Easter or Passover or just gathering with family and friends, we bid you safe travels -- and be on the lookout for magical rabbits with candy.
Police news dominated the headlines this week. Alaw enforcement surge produced multiple arrests on drug related charges, and officials told out-of-town dealers to go home. And the search for the suspect in two shooting deaths in Hinsdale ended with his death.
Orange cones ahead: Bridge work on I-91 will take longer than expected. But water main repairs in Brattleboro are on target for completion in time for the Strolling of the Heifers.
Speaking of Heifers: Organizers are defending the parade's treatment of animals.
Flood of complaints: Some property owners in Wilmington are questioning regulations proposed to protect buildings from flood damage.
