Back on October 24, 2011, Joey collapsed during a preseason baseball team workout at the University of Rhode Island. He died three days later in a Rhode Island Hospital. He was just 20 years old.

The loss of Joey Ciancola was a tragedy and his mother wanted answers. She filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the university.

On January 8, just days before the case was to go to trial, the university settled with the Ciancola family for $1.45 million.

For the Ciancola’s it’s not about the money. Nothing will ever make up for the loss of this wonderful young man.

The University is setting up a scholarship in Joey’s memory.

Soldier needs a home

Soldier needs a home

An Orange family has s 4-year-old, sweet, well mannered male cat that they need to give away immediately. They found Soldier on the side of the road at only 8 weeks old and he had a severed nerve in one of his back legs, which caused the leg to be limp and death.  They had the leg removed and he has done much better since.

The problem is, Soldier has a bad habit of urinating on the first floor of their home and all over their 3-year-old twins things.

They have tried everything to resolve the issue, including:  vet visits, medication and moving the litter box to the first floor to make it more accessible.

They have an older female cat around 10 years old and the twins.

They are worried about obvious health issues.

There Is Hope: They did go on vacation for two weeks and boarded him with their vets office.  He did not pee in his surroundings there.  Perhaps Soldier needs a home with no kids or no other pets.  They are looking for a new place and home for Soldier asap.

If interested, please e-mail [email protected] with your name and contact information and we will forward to the owner.

On Friday, Feb. 5 at 3:18 a.m., Orange police officers responded to a complaint of a serious assault at a private residence on Mulberry Lane.

During the investigation, officers observed a female in her 50s suffering from multiple severe knife wounds to her chest, head, face, and both hands.

Officers learned that the victim was the mother of the suspect, Charles Weber III, 20, of 220 Mulberry Lane and that Charles also was inside the house and had suffered a knife wound himself.

All parties were given emergency medical care on-site. The victim was then transported to a local hospital where her wounds were treated. The suspect was taken to an area hospital under guard.

An investigation led to the issuance of an arrest warrant, for Weber charging attempted murder and first-degree assault, which was served on Monday, Feb. 8.

Weber was placed on $500,000 bond, and arraigned at court today, Feb. 8.

NOTE: The arrest warrant affidavit in this case has been sealed by the court and is not available for public release. Orange Police will have no further details available regarding this case.

The Orange Highway Department is hands down, the BEST. After driving around for a couple of hours, I found that Orange’s roadways were the safest in the area.

When you leave Orange and venture into Milford you can’t hep but notice that the Milford roads are slippery and untouched by plows in many areas. West Haven is no better. It’s always a comfort knowing that the Highway Department is on the job in Orange.

The heavy snow is dragging down wires and snapping weak tree limbs.

Currently, there are three events in Orange that has caused power outages to 437 UI Customers.

It may take up to 3 hours to restore power to everyone.

The Orange Police Department reminds residents to report hazards to the police and Never touch downed wires!  You can reach the OPD at 203-891-2130.

A reminder, there is an “on street” parking ban for the entire Town of Orange. Please move vehicles off the roadway so that highway crews can properly treat the roadways and clear the snow.

While you’re waiting for your electricity to turn on, why not shovel out that fire hydrant in front of your house? Remember to lift with your legs not your back.
