Inside this week’s Darien Times: Dec. 13

TIDAL SAVE — Darien Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron braved the 45-degree waters below Ring’s End Bridge Tuesday, as he replaced a rusted cotter pin to allow the tidal gates to open. The Public Works Department needed a diver to assist in replacing the rusted part, so the police’s dive team volunteered for the job. While Marron worked, DPW staff monitored his efforts with an underwater camera. Marron could also talk to them with a CB radio. (David DesRoches photo)
