DANBURY, CT — Western Connecticut State University alerted its students via Twitter to avoid Lake Ave. and Lake Ave. Ext. as there has been a dangerous spill o the road in front of Stanziato’s Pizza.

 

(1/2) A truck has spilled a load of 1,000 pounds of roofing nails in front of Stanziato’s Restaurant on Lake Ave. Extension near the entrance to the Westside campus.

(2/2) Please avoid taking Lake Ave. Extension to get to Westside. Instead, take Kenosia Ave. or approach from Exit 2. The campus remains open and all classes and other activities are continuing.”

Roofing nails can cause damage to tires causing a dangerous driving situation. “Driving with a hole in your tire is potentially dangerous and could cause a blowout. Furthermore, driving too long with the nail can ruin the tire so you will have to replace the entire tire, instead of having a small piece plugged,” according to Autoblog.

DANBURY, CT —  The City of Danbury and the Jericho Partnership are joining forces to help combat homelessness and they need your help to qualify for a $25,000 grant to fulfill their mission. The two organizations are presenting the project called “CityServe” to increase the number of participants in Project CleanStart (PCS), expand the number of students impacted by Reading Buddies Program (RBP), and increase services offered by Spring Street Neighborhood Center (SSNC), according to their website.

Jericho is a finalist to win one of 40 grants with 200 organizations in the running. Funds will be used to enable team leaders to work directly with the homeless population and present the “Reading Buddies” program to several Danbury public schools. If awarded the grant, they will be able to expand their impact in elementary schools, increase food pantry distributions, help shut-ins and the elderly population, and offering free case management for families in need.
