We'll bring you the second act of recent Metro Connection stories, and find out where things stand now. We'll find out how the folks at Fragers Hardware are faring, six months after a devastating fire. We'll check in with the monks of Holy Cross Abbey, who have just put their land under perpetual protection from development. And we'll revisit the tiny marsh that was formerly disappearing, but has gotten a new lease on life.
