  • There is now a place in Somers purely for the dogs. A new dog park has opened on Route 100 near the town highway garage with a grand opening ceremony set for the fall. The opening culminates a five-year journey by former Somers Councilman Harry Bolton who worked to give dogs a place to call their own.
  • Shirley Acevedo Buontempo, a Somers resident who has worked in community nonprofits for more than 12  years, founded Latino U College Access in 2012 and the nonprofit recently announced its first scholarship awards this week.
