FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — As summer takes hold across Fairfield County, you may have missed some of the top stories of the past week from the Daily Voice. Before you head outside, check out these most-read items:

Randall Pineau, a 52-year old Sandy Hook resident, was killed after his pontoon boat was hit by a ski boat when he was out at night on Lake Zoar.

Don’t be surprised if you hear the iconic strains of “It’s Not Easy Being Green” in town: The new voice of Kermit the Frog is none other than Fairfield resident Matt Vogel.

Anny Castillo, a 22-year-old Danbury resident, has been arrested and charged with abandoning her newborn baby boy behind a market on Main Street in May, police said.

L.A. Tavern Kitchen & Bar has officially opened, bringing an American-Latin menu and farm-fresh ingredients to Black Rock’s bustling Fairfield Avenue. Be sure to check out the tapas — including sautéed shrimp over a roasted corn salad, grilled lollipop lamb chops with a balsamic drizzle and eggplant bruschetta — at the new Bridgeport eatery.

They'll be hiring soon at the job-hunting website Indeed. The company will invest $26.5 million to expand its Stamford offices and add as many as 500 new workers to its current 700-employee workforce.

Two doctors with a medical practice in Norwalk have been charged with writing opioid prescriptions in exchange for cash — an operation called a "pill mill" by federal prosecutors — as well as health care fraud and money laundering. Bharat Patel, 70, of Milford was arrested while 47-year-old Ramil Mansourov of Darien was being sought by law enforcement.

What started as a simple idea at a barbecue has turned into a product design business for Anne and Joe McMahon of Weston. After watching people struggle to butter their corn on the cob , they thought there had to be a better way. They developed ButterOnce, built around the idea that one time is all that's needed to properly (and easily) butter corn.

Wings Over, a delivery and takeout franchise restaurant chain that offers delivery and takeout of wings , boneless wings, ribs, sandwiches and fries, is opening on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield next month.

Stamford police spent hours directing traffic after a tractor-trailer struck a railroad underpass on East Main Street on Tuesday.

Laura Ramos, 31, a former Central High School teacher, went to court with her husband by her side for her arraignment on a charge of second-degree sexual assault on a special education student.
