Lisa DeBruzzi of Autumn Lane, a senior at Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) and starting catcher for the CCHS Patriots Softball Team for the past three years, recently signed an NCAA Letter of Intent for a Division 1 scholarship to play softball at Valparaiso University in Indiana. DeBruzzi will enroll and join the team at Valparaiso in the fall of 2007, and plans to major in nursing.

In addition to playing for CCHS, where she is one of the top hitters on the team and one of the top high school catchers in the state, she has also played the past three summers for the Concord Raiders Softball Team, consistently hitting some of the top pitching on the east coast.

• As a result of last week's story on Normandy, we were pleased to hear from Clarence Cook of Maple Street. He is a WWII veteran who fought at Normandy. Cook served aboard the U.S.S. Nevada which bombed the German artillery situated above Omaha Beach during the infantry landings. He joined the Navy at 17. He has never visited Normandy, but has kept in touch with former shipmates. Cook lived in Florida with his wife before making the move to Carlisle about a year ago to live with his daughter, Janice Micarelli.

Susan Stamps of Cross Street has become certified as an inline skate instructor, beginner level, by the United Skate Schools Group (USSG). USSG is a national organization whose mission is to promote the sport of inline skating and provide support and resources to inline skate instructors and skate schools. When her children were young, they taught Stamps to skate so she would take them to roller rinks on the weekends. Now that she is an empty nester, she is a regular skater with the Inline Club of Boston and participates in inline skate events around the country.

The advertisement in last week's Mosquito on page 10 was paid for by a private individual, not the Carlisle School Committee. The Mosquito regrets any misunderstanding this may have caused.


In last week's Mosquito we incorrectly identified the date of D-Day. The correct date is June 6, 1944.
