A 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.

Traffic and environmental concerns dominated a public hearing Tuesday before the Shelton Planning and Zoning Commission on a developer’s application to put a 20-unit condominium complex on a 2-acre property near the city’s boundaries with Trumbull and Stratford.
Of the 21 members of the public who weighed in on the proposal Tuesday, not one spoke in favor of it.
Afterward, the developer, John Guedes, said their concerns would be addressed when the hearing continues next year.

Several years ago, Small Business Saturday was created to promote shopping at local small businesses across the country.
In an editorial I wrote at that time, I noted it was encouraging to see one day devoted to local entrepreneurs, but it was important to remember that small businesses are the life-blood of our local economy and they are open for business year round.
That is why I am so proud to join in the formation of a new effort titled Celebrate Shelton, created by two local small business owners, Nicole Heriot Mikula and Mike Skrtic, with support from the City of Shelton, the Shelton Economic Development Corporation, and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce.
