Londonderry town councilors zoomed through their agenda May 6, voting on various items including spending money on cemetery repairs, honoring an Eagle Scout and celebrating a Conservation Commission award. Council Chairman John Farrell kept the meeting moving along.

Pining for pizza
Over the course of the last several months, many pizza lovers in Derry watched the new Sal's location with a keen eye, hoping the new restaurant would be open soon.

Many people offered information on finding a wildlife rehabilitation expert in the area to tend to the furry little animal.
