Daily Five: Ghost Talk, Perfect Weather and Construction Delays

Five things to know for Wednesday, August 29, 2012.


1. What's the Weather? Sunny, with a high near 81. North wind 5 to 13 mph. Tonight: Clear, with a low around 49. (WOW, look at that overnight low!!)

2. Durham Public Works Building Update It's been a year since to build a new Public Works facility but the building has yet to be completed.

Town officials said Monday that unexpected delays had pushed completion of the project back but indicated that the building would be finished soon.

"It will be functional during the winter," said Public Works Director Kurt Bober.

A committee overseeing the project gathered at the site of the new building at 20 Cream Pot Road on Monday to review the progress of construction. During the meeting, workers nearby were pouring a cement pad.

Regardless of the delays, Bober said the new facility will benefit Durham residents.

"By having a complete winter supply of material, that's going to save man power. It's going to save our crew from having to spend time mixing it. Being able to keep equipment inside, instead of outside will save on maintenance," he said.

3. Middlefield Historical Society to Re-Open Doors Next Month After a three-year hiatus, the Middlefield Historical Society is scheduled to meet on Thursday, September 6. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the Community Center (the MHS is located near the kitchen).

The meeting will feature guest speaker Rich Malley, Curator of the Connecticut Historical Society. The meeting is open to the public. Membership to the MHS is $10 per year.
