In anticipation of “Chris” the biggest snowstorm of the season, the Amity and Orange School systems will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 9.

While kids are having fun playing in the white stuff and, if conditions are right, building snowmen and forts, adults most likely will find themselves bundling up and shoveling.

Remember, if you have a fire hydrant in front of, or close to your property, PLEASE clear the snow from around it so the volunteer firefighters won’t have to do it in the event of an emergency.

We’ve posted this video for the past three years to show you how much precious time can be wasted at a fire scene if the firefighters have to clear out a hydrant when they can be concentrating their efforts on your home instead.

Try to stay off the roads and if you must go out, drive carefully and watch out for the other guy.

Closings

Town of Orange offices will be closed on Thursday Feb. 9 due to the storm. This includes all Town Hall offices. The Orange Police Records Division also will be closed.

If your business will be closed please post it on our FACEBOOK page or send us an e-mail and we’ll get the word out.

Girls’ Basketball: Amity Comes From Behind, Defeats Branford

Feb 082017
 

The Lady Spartans Girls Basketball team hosted the Branford Hornets in Woodbridge on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

It was a rough start for Amity with Branford taking a 4 point lead 14-10 in the first quarter.

Amity overcame them by one point 22-21 in the second, then fell behind again, 28-36 in the third.

Throughout the game the Lady Spartans were very aware of where their hands were and didn’t have many fouls against them.

In the fourth quarter with Branford up by one point 40-39 and just 3:20 remaining on the clock, the Spartans came alive and the Hornets got a little sloppy, pushing and tripping the hometown girls allowing for numerous successful foul shots in the final moments of the game.

It was a nailbiter, but Amity came through at the last minute with a 53-40 victory.


Scoreboard

Amity        10 22 28 53 

Branford 14 21 36 40

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, The Amity Lady Spartans Girls’ Basketball Team hosted the Branford Hornets in Woodbridge.

Amity enjoyed the biggest comeback since the Patriots vs Falcons Superbowl game… well, maybe not THAT dramatic, but they certainly didn’t lose.

Yet, this is the “fake news” that my personal favorite sports site reported in its Tuesday roundup:

BRANFORD 40, AMITY 28
(at Amity)
Branford 14 7 15 4 – 40
Amity 10 12 6 0 – 28

3-point goals: Branford 4 (DiGioia 1, Pierson 2, Araneo 1); Amity 3 (Granados 1, Martin 2)

What? That’s not what happened! I’m sure it was just an e-mail glitch or something.

In any case, we’ll have the true, current story up on Orange Live later this morning.
