Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 2.39.42 PMThe Orange Police Department has recently launched new access on several social media fronts. 

The Department now has a Facebook page as well as twitter and instagram accounts. 

“It is our hope to be able to better inform the community of our activity both on a routine basis and during emergencies,” said Asst. Chief Anthony Cuozzo. “In the past the department had relied on members individual pages or the Emergency Management pages to get the word out.  This will allow us to showcase our efforts in community policing, whether its in the schools, partnering with youth services, or any of the many outreach programs the department uses.”

We will use the sites to post press releases, although we also will use traditional media outlets to get that news out.

The facebook site can be found under “Town of Orange Police Department,” follow us on Twitter and instagram at  “@orangepdct”

Less Than 5 Months, 691 Stories Published, 2 Million Hits — Thanks To You!

 Amity High School, Around Town, Latest News  Comments Off on Less Than 5 Months, 691 Stories Published, 2 Million Hits — Thanks To You!
Oct 202012
 

In May, the naysayers swore it couldn’t be done. One individual with a dream — giving the residents of Orange what they really want — a place to go for Local news from your town 24-7.

The Orangectlive.com news site is accompanied by an active Facebook page where most residents share their thoughts and post events that I then rewrite as a news story and post on the news site for non-Facebook users and everyone else to see.

On August 18, Orange Live made its first milestone with 1 Million Hits. That was less than three months after the official launch date. And NOW, Just 2 months and 1 day later, just shy of the five month anniversary, Orange Live has received more than 2 MILLION Hits.

If we did polls and contests, you might see something asking when readers think we’ll see our 3 millionth hit. But, Orange Live is about the news. Posting your events for you, finding interesting information to pass on  and giving you the best, most complete Amity High Varsity Sports coverage available anywhere.

Knowing how important Amity sports are to Orange residents — Our Numbers Show It — I hired renowned Sports Writer Phil Brodsky “2010 Sportswriter of the Year,” to cover Amity’s Sports Teams. He has done a phenomenal job for us.

I’d like to thank our advertisers for believing in Orange Live, our Sports Sponsors for their generosity, and YOU the faithful readers who come back day after day.

If you have a neighbor or friend that doesn’t know about Orange Live yet, please spread the word. That’s how we’ve gotten where we are today.

When you visit any of our advertisers’ businesses, make sure to tell them you saw their ad on Orange Live. I’d greatly appreciate that!

VIDEO: Graduation Speaker Rachel Simon, Outstanding Accomplishment

 Amity High School, School News  Comments Off on VIDEO: Graduation Speaker Rachel Simon, Outstanding Accomplishment
Jun 242012
 

Posted Jun 24 at 0:08 a.m.

The 424 member class of 2012 at Amity High School had three class speakers at graduation.

Rachel Simon Outstanding Accomplishment

Rachel Simon, chosen for her Outstanding Accomplishment while at Amity, was the second speaker to address her peers.

Click HERE for the full VIDEO.

Rachel is a dancer, Link Crew Leader, writer and member of the National Honor Society.

She told her classmates (and their parents) that social media, such as Facebook is not necessarily a bad thing, and she reminded them to stay in contact with one another after they part ways.

No matter what they do in the future, they must always remember the wonderful times and education they had together at Amity.

Rachel is going to Barnard College at Columbia, to pursue a liberal arts degree.

The only classmate to hear Rachel’s entire speech before graduation was Alli Kramer, who could not attend the class graduation. Rachel attended Alli’s private graduation ceremony on Monday, June 18, and shared the speech with her afterward.
