Is there paranormal activity in the Forestville Cemetery?

October 31, 2010

Over the last few weeks, several Forestville residents told me there is paranormal activity in the Forestville Cemetery.  Creepy noises and shadowy figures have apparently made for a frightening experience.   Based on this information, I visited the leaf covered grave yard Friday afternoon looking for signs of anything out of the ordinary.  Although I did not see or hear any ghosts, ghouls or spirits, I had the distinct feeling that I was being watched.  That was creepy because to my knowledge there was not a single person in the cemetery.

The substation on Cronin Street is under repair.  No word on when the repairs started or when they will be completed.  In addition there is no information on the nature of the repairs or who is doing them.

Terry Tata, a retired major league umpire and Connecticut resident, will be in Forestville Saturday night at Nuchie’s as the guest speaker for the Hartford Chapter of Connecticut Board of Approved Baseball Umpires (or something like that).

The last time a “famous person” visited Forestville is when actress Drew Barrymore was allegedly spotted at Mike’s Pizza earlier this year.


Forestville prepared for Halloween

The center of Forestville looks festive this Halloween season in anticipation of the pagan ritual celebrated by children and adults in costumes.

My wife and I are attending John and Barbara Deavers’ annual Halloween party.  I am going as The Hulk and she as “Recently Divorced Woman.”  Should I be worried?


Meet the new Route 72 same as the old Route 72

The view behind Pine Street Plaza looking to Plainville

I finally drove the new 2.2 miles of the new Route 72 from Plainville to Forestville.  There are four lights currently along the new road and with the exception of a small bump at the Plainville end (headed east), it is a smooth ride.  Of course the road is only a month old but in time it will have a healthy supply of environmental effects.

There is still work to be done along Pine Street so the project is not complete.  The foot bridge over the road looks nice at night when illuminated and no doubt this “road” will help the community.  However, I have been hearing about this road my entire life and I happy it is here but I can’t help but wonder: Is that it?
