29 Years And Counting, 130 Turkeys, $200 Cash, Infinite Goodwill

by Patricia Villers | Nov 21, 2014 11:02 am | Comments (1)

photo:patricia villersA Valley dentist and his family continued a 29-year tradition Thursday (Nov. 21), collecting turkeys and Thanksgiving dinner fixings for the food bank at Spooner House in Shelton.

Bruce Sofferman, his wife, Deborah, and their daughter, Sophia, spent Thursday morning dressed in Thanksgiving costumes standing alongside Route 34 in Derby to once again “collect food and raise awareness,” Deborah Sofferman said.

It’s a bit off-the-wall, but the Soffermans are glad to make the annual “pilgrimage” if it means people like Ansonia’s Roger Picerno take notice.

Picerno dropped off food at the Soffermans’ event Thursday for a very simple reason.

“It’s hard to eat a meal knowing somebody else may not have one,” he said.

by Press Release | Nov 20, 2014 7:35 pm | Comments (0)

The City of Ansonia, through its Corporation Counsel, John Marini, advises residents to be on the lookout for scam artists passing themselves off as legitimate paving businesses.

The City has received reports of homeowners in the Hilltop area being solicited by individuals claiming to represent the “Interstate Paving” company. These individuals are claiming that “Interstate Paving” has recently performed paving work for the City of Ansonia and offering their services for private paving jobs.

Ansonia residents should be advised that “Interstate Paving” has never performed work for the City. Moreover, the uninvited solicitation of homeowners by a paving company is inherently suspicious and should raise red flags.
