by Lorie Vaccaro | GUEST COLUMN | Jul 30, 2015 3:15 pm | Comments (0)

Fiscal responsibility has been a priority of the Cassetti administration since day one. That’s why reading the acceptance speech of the Mayor’s Democrat challenger took me by surprise. I momentarily thought I stumbled on a screenplay for some forgotten episode of “The Outer Limits.”

I was mistaken. It just happens that the Ansonia Democrat’s 2015 platform is pure, unadulterated science fiction.

Holy Rosary parish, Ansonia, will sponsor its 48th annual Italian Festival, Festa! 2015, Aug. 6 to Aug. 8 from 5 to 10 p.m. on its church grounds on 10 Father Salemi Drive in downtown Ansonia.

The festival is a celebration of Italian heritage as the parish recalls its roots as an immigrant parish in the early 1900s.

The current church (and festival) is located in the old Powe Street neighborhood that once housed a vibrant Italian enclave from 1900 to the flood redevelopment era of the 1960s.

The local political conventions in Ansonia took on the feel of a Red Sox-Yankees game July 23, with the Republicans and Democrats nominating candidates at the same time, in the same restaurant, in two adjacent rooms separated by a thin wall.

The moment that Ansonia’s Martin Passander of Ansonia revealed a $1,000 prize next to the “20X” symbol that appeared on his CT Lottery “20X Cash” scratch game ticket left him utterly speechless.

It meant, quite simply, that in one fell swoop Passander was a $20,000 top prize winner.

“I saw the ‘20X’ symbol and then scratched away the prize area—it was $1,000. That’s $20,000! I almost died,” Passander said with a chuckle. “I’ve won [smaller] prizes before, but nothing like this had ever happened to me. I was in disbelief!”
