BETHEL -- When Tom Peters walked into the barber shop the other morning, he had more than a haircut on his mind.
The 63-year-old longtime Bethel resident wasted no time telling people he was opposed to the town spending an extra $7 million on the long-delayed Bethel High School renovation project.

For Peters, a retired Redding police officer, expressing his opinion on town issues in public is one of the best ways he knows to get his point across.

With Bethel taxpayers slated to vote on the project Tuesday, Peters has even put signs on his car urging them to oppose it.
