Chemical Spill Closes Route 7 Near High School

Stay away from the area...Route 7 just south of the HS is closed to Brookfield. It appears that a tractor-trailer has overturned, dumping chemicals on the road. All traffic is being detoured to Candlewood Lake Road South. Fire personnel are on the scene but there is no Police presence on CLRS and traffic in places such as the intersection at Carmen Hill is at a dead stop.

Fund-Raising For Playground Exceeds Match Challenge

Thanks to some large donations and many smaller, the $50,000 fund-raising challenge for the construction of the new playground has been met and exceeded.

But with about $110,000 in hand, "The effort isn't over," says Assistant Parks and Rec Director Eleanor Covelli. "The more money we get, the better a facility we can build."

The larger donors are: MVP-SOS, $10,000; Village Fair, $5,000; Chamber of Commerce, $5,000; NMPTO, $2,500; Candlewood Valley Pediatrics, $2,500; the Pilla Family, $2,000; Top-Flight, $1,770; and $1,500, the Dayton Family.

Congratulations to the New Milford 4Rec Association, Eleanor and Director Dan Calhoun for making this project a reality.
