‘08 in Review
During the next two weeks we will look back at the biggest stories the Local published in 2008. We will reprise the controversies: the Treehouse Play Café, the Chestnut Hill Community Association election ballot fiasco and the downfall of Caruso’s Market. We will also highlight some of the triumphs: from the optimism of Barack Obama’s election – including visits by Ted and Caroline Kennedy — to wrapping up a successful campaign to light Germantown Avenue’s trees for the Holidays. If it was significant, we’ve included it here.
