The Tale Of The Traveling Cell Phone

Screen Shot 2015-08-02 at 9.36.24 AMIf there’s one thing that the Police Command Post at the Orange Firemen’s Carnival has after the day is done, it’s plenty of tales to tell.

All day long, harried carnival-goers of all ages rush up to the table with a million different dilemmas, most common are lost keys, cell phones, and wallets.

One mom asked if they had any tape so she could fix her brand new “selfie stick” that broke – and she had to use it to take pictures of her son. A CERT member handed her a roll of medical tape, and that did the trick.

The police were happy to return wallets to their rightful owners and pleased to know that all of the money was still inside.

A Gold and Ruby bracelet also was returned to its owner after the husband described it AND produced a photo of it on his cell phone.

This year’s Carnival Announcer Brian Smith reported “lost and found” items over the intercom throughout the day and often followed up with the Command Post to see if the items had been claimed or still needed another announcement.

Smith, the CERT members and Orange Police all shared the same favorite story on Saturday night, that was:”The Tale of the Traveling Cell Phone.”

Someone found a cell phone on the ground near one of the amusement rides and turned it in at the main raffle tent. Smith announced it, then when no one claimed it after a while, sent it over to the Command Post for proper handling and storage if needed.

The phone’s battery was dead, so the folks at the Post charged it. Once it could be turned on, Annie Davis from CERT gave it to Orange Police LT. Max Martins, who checked it out for a phone number that he could call in order to find the owner. “Mom” seemed like the best choice.

Martins told MOM that he had her son’s phone and that it was found at a carnival in Orange, CT.

She was flabbergasted, and explained that her son had lost it on a ride at a carnival in Massachusetts a week or two ago and never thought he’d see it again.

Martins took her name and address and told her he would send it to her.

Another job well done by our great police investigators, CERT and the honest person who turned it in.

CBS is Back on Cablevision

Screen shot 2014-01-19 at 12.43.46 PMOrange and Woodbridge residents who subscribe to Cablevision are happily reporting that they have CBS back.

WFSB announced yesterday that they had reached an agreement with Cablevision.

This is great news for everyone who appreciates the programming and news coverage and have missed it since Friday, Jan. 3.

WFSB sent out a reporter and cameraman to the special Board of Education meeting regarding the Peck Place School situation and some residents were compelled to taunt the cameraman, asking “Why are you here? We can’t even watch your channel.”

On Jan. 6 State Rep Paul Davis  called for officials at Cablevision and WFSB-Channel 3 to continue to negotiate and restore  Connecticut’s CBS affiliate’s service to the three New Haven County towns of Milford, Orange and Woodbridge.

Thankfully, this was a short-lived problem, but several residents caution Cablevision, “Don’t let it happen again.”
