On Monday, April 25, about 10 employees from Home Depot of Orange worked most of the day beautifying the landscaping around Town Hall.

This is one of Home Depot’s community projects, and all of the mulch and labor did not cost Orange taxpayers a penny.

When you drive by Town Hall check out the neat new mulch piles around the shrubbery and trees surrounding the building.

Thank You Home Depot for being a great business neighbor.

Around 8:45 p.m. the Milford Fire Department was called to I-95 S exit 35 on a report of a tractor trailer on top of a car with possible extrication needed.

Within minutes the first responders were on scene reporting that the car WAS under the 18-wheeler, and everyone was out of the vehicle.

What could have been a tragic accident, it seems has an unbelievably lucky outcome.

“This cat is in our back yard, looks like a very young cat maybe a kitten even. Very shy but keeps crying. We live on Lambert Road and our backyard neighbors on Old Tavern also have had this kitten in their yard recently. Just want to see if anyone is missing a cat or kitten. We are feeding him for now.”

If you belong to this kitty, please comment on our Facebook page or send us an e-mail at [email protected] and we will try to reunite you. 

As we all well know, Orange is a very dangerous place for small animals, with all the coyote, bobcats and other predators out and about.
