See more photos on page 14. FOSTER – After closing its doors more than two years ago when former owner Danny Calise died, Danny's Auction is back in business and holding its first public auction this Saturday, Sept. 14. Dennis and Jennifer Goldberger partnered up with Calise's daugh- ter and her spouse, Lori and David Mihaldies, to bring the old auction house, located at 150 Danielson Pike, back to life. The Goldbergers operate Gold Star Auto Sales in Johnston and were looking for a change of pace. With the help of Dennis' business partner, Rick Santilli, the group decided to reopen Danny's Auction. The Goldbergers said they decided to keep the name Danny's in memory of Danny Calise, and also because their son is named Danny. "We saw a vision, and we went for it," Dennis said. With Lori Mihaldies having expe- rience working in the auction, and the Goldbergers' experience in car sales, the match was perfect, Jennifer Goldberger said.

The project, completed by R.A.D. Sports, consisted of replacing the grass football field with rubber- ized turf, new setups for the track competition field including the long jump, high jump, shot put, ham- mer, javelin toss, discus and more. Renovations began last November. Renovations also include a new, rubberized track surface. "We've got all of track and field covered," said S.T.E.A.M. coordina- tor Shannon Donovan, who threw the javelin in college. A grand opening for the track will be held during Homecoming week on Friday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. before the game. The entry leading up to the field is repaved, and a set of portable bleachers seating approximately 380 people was installed as well. Director of School Facilities Robert Corrente said the field is now a state-of-the-art athletic com- plex rivaling that of local universi- ties.
