New year. New season. Almost – but not quite – the same old deja view for the New Haven Bulldogs.
Twelve months after dropping a stem-to-stern 40-point hammering on the Heritage Patriots, the Patriots hung tough until the clock ran dry this time around. But in the end, on a sweat-blurred Friday night, the Bulldogs finally saw their way clear, scoring two touchdowns in a meat-grinding third quarter and then saving the day with a crucial late drive to stomp off with a 31-21 victory.
“We had our chances to put them away – we had more than our chances to put them away – but we just didn’t get it done,” New Haven coach Jim Rowland said. “To their credit, they played hard, but we made a season’s worth of mistakes in one game.
“You know, it’s only Week 1, so we’ve got a lot of room to improve. But at least we got out with the ‘W.’ ”
The Bulldogs led by 16 with a quarter to play, but a 9-yard run by Heritage quarterback Brandon Dossen and Jailon Parrish’s 42-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first three minutes of the fourth quarter turned it back into a game again.
The Cellular Connection to donate college scholarships to nearly 300 children nationwide
Nation’s largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer’s “Color for College” program to give $1,500 scholarships to 300 students
Children ages 13 and younger in New Haven have the opportunity to receive college scholarships by simply doing one of their favorite activities: coloring. The Cellular Connection, the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer in the U.S., announces today that its “Color for College” program will donate $1,500 college scholarships to students nationwide at nearly 300 of its stores.
From Aug.3-31, participating TCC stores across the U.S. are inviting local families to bring their children to the store to color a pre-printed page from TCC and complete the entry information on the back. One $1,500 scholarship will be given to the winning submission at each participating store in the form of a 529 college savings plan that cannot be redeemed until the student attends college. No purchase necessary. Winners will be selected in a random drawing on Sept. 5. Parents and guardians of the winners will be contacted by Sept. 30 with details of how to redeem the scholarships.
The participating store in New Haven is located at 326 State Road 930 West.
The “Color for College” program falls on the heels of TCC donating 100,000 backpacks to students across the U.S. during its annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway that took place on Aug. 2.
“We are excited to contribute to children’s education through our ‘Culture of Good’ movement,” said Scott Moorehead, president and CEO of TCC. “This is how our company gives back to the communities where we do business, and education is a primary focus of these efforts. In the end, we want both parents and kids to know we care and their education matters to us.”
More information about the “Color for College” initiative is available on YouTube. Supporters of the program are encouraged to use hashtag #cultureofgood on Instagram and Twitter to help spread the word.

Court docs: ‘If I’m going to prison for this, I’m going to prison for rape too’
By Sara Wagner
New Haven Police are asking for the public for help as they try to track down a man they said should be considered extremely dangerous. Michael Ladig has been on the run since May 2014.
He is accused of brutally beating his girlfriend multiple times, putting her in the hospital for days, and of attempted rape.
The first beating happened on May 21. Ladig and his girlfriend at the time, Catherine Anderson, had just come home from a cookout. He hit her in the back of the head and punched her in the face. He told Anderson,”I know you’re cheating on me, I just saw you get out of their car.” Anderson asked him what he was talking about. She then reminded him they came home together, but he continued to beat her. According to the probable cause, Anderson told police she couldn’t fight back because she was in shock and that Ladig was much bigger than her.
Anderson told police Ladig also choked her, beat her, and drug her around their trailer. She said the beatings lasted around three to four hours. She also said Ladig told her he was going to “squeeze the life out of her.” He also broke her nose and split one of her eyelids open. Anderson told police she remembered thinking he was going to kill her and she wouldn’t be able to take her daughter to school the next day. He then grabbed a knife out of the sink and tried to stab her in the neck. The blade caught the hollow part of her gage earring and broke. She tried to call 911 on two different phones, but Ladig broke both of them.
