The temperature was a bone-chilling minus 2 degrees Fahrenheit with a stiff wind whipping through the parking lot behind Chappy’s Restaurant, the newly opened breakfast and lunch spot on Canaan’s main street, on the morning of Monday, Jan. 10.

I was meeting a Canaan Lions Club member to collect signatures he had gathered on a petition for a Town appropriation request for Canaan voters to decide whether or not to fund mental health services provided by West Central Behavioral Health for another year. It’s an annual process, and one that doesn’t usually make for interesting news.
