Philosophical ideas change Town Council meetings By Daniel Jackson The Berlin Citizen

In years past, the Town Council consistently passed a resolution to waive the light fee to allow the women’s softball league to use Hubbard Field after dark. At its June 5 meeting, the Town Council discussed this request, questioned Park and Recreation Director Stephen Kelly and eventually voted against paying $222 to keep the softball lights burning. Mayor Adam Salina said the council has moved resolutions dealing with small fund appropriations and fee waivers from the consent agenda to part of normal

business in order to have an opportunity to debate those resolutions. “This is a relatively new council,” Salina said, and with new members come different philosophies about government. At the beginning of its meetings, the council votes on its consent agenda, small resolutions that the town must approve and that usually don’t need discussion. For example, the council needs to formally accept donations given to, say, the library. Some councilmembers say the town shouldn’t be waiving fees or donating money in some instances. “A government body isn’t

supposed to be charitable,” Councilmember Eric Buhrendorf said. Last November, the Republican councilmember replaced Karen Drost, also a Republican, in the general election. At the recent council meeting, Buhrendorf abstained from voting on two resolutions regarding waiving fees at Timberlin Golf Course. In the first, the Hospital of Central Connecticut asked the town to donate a round of golf so that they could raffle it off during one of their fundraisers. The second, the town waived the green and cart fees for an expected 16 realtors as part of a meeting in Berlin of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors, one of the premiere associations for commercial realtors. Both resolutions passed. He argues that while these actions are well and good, they are not the council’s job. The government’s job is to collect tax and provide essential services, he said. In waiving fees and picking up tabs, Buhrendorf said the town is forcibly collecting money from residents and then giving it away based on emotion. “We shouldn’t be lobbied See Council, page 10

Reader’s poll Here are the Berlin Citizen online poll results for last week: The question was: Would you take the train from Berlin when the system is upgraded? The answer is: I would probably use the train for short trips, going to Meriden, Hartford, etc. 6% I would probably use the train for long trips, going to Washington D.C. and beyond 54% Train? Nah, I prefer my car. 33% Train? Oh yes, I plan on being on that platform waiting for the train every day. 6% This week’s poll question asks: What does the future look like for Berlin graduates?

state will subsidize the rail line to lower short trip fares. For example, a train ticket from the Berlin station to Meriden currently costs $4 online and $6 if purchased 15 minutes before the train arrives. “That’s being worked out,” said Bernick. CTDOT is currently exploring models on how to best subsidize the rail. The NHHS line, projected to open for service in 2016, will cost $647 million in a mix of federal grants and

John Bernick, project manager for the New Haven to Springfield rail project, said the low turnout of residents at the public hearing June 7 showed most people are in favor of the project. “There really weren’t any dissenters.” “When you hold these hearings, typically you only hear from the people who are against the project. The people who are for the project, they look at the notice and they go ‘hey, I like this. I don’t need to show up.’” About 30 people attended the environmental impact hearing for the New Haven to Springfield rail line at Central Connecticut State University to discuss the environmental impact of the rail. Held in Torp Theater, the room had the potential to hold 360 people. Some residents offered suggestions for the rail line: lower the cost of short trips, place bike racks at each station, create a station in New Britain and extend continuous service to the Greenwich area. Bernick said many of the comments fell outside the scope of the project but the

state money. Designers plan to build a double track from New Haven to Springfield which will carry trains making 25 round trips up and down the line at faster speeds—up to 110 mph. These funds do not include the purchase of trains and the upgrade of stations. The funding to build the double track through Berlin will cost $60 million dollars and was some of the first funds appropriated for the project. The federal government granted the state $40 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009. The remaining $20 million for the construction in Berlin was funded by the state of Connecticut. While in support of the rail, Yvette Ghannam said there were many opportunities for New Britain if a station were put in. People would travel up from New York City and students attending CCSU would have more transportation options. “We need the opportunity for jobs. We need the opportunity for education,” she said. Because she commutes to Greenwich by train to her job, she drives to New Haven to use the Metro North Trains because they are more reliable. She lives close to the Berlin border. “But in my case, I would go to Berlin,” she said. New Britain cannot have a train station because the rail line does not run through the city, according to CTDOT. To

In 2007, the Grelaks sold the lodge for $3.2 million to the Kanji Partners LLC, which is owned by Sagar Shah and family.

Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms searched the Hawthorne Inn last week, as well as two homes belonging to its owner Syed Bokhari, neighbors and employees confirmed. According to city property records, Bokhari owns two houses at 175 and 314 Old Farms West in Middletown. Neighbors on the street confirmed that federal agents searched the properties last week. An employee at the Hawthorne Inn, who declined to give his name, also confirmed the presence of agents at the restaurant. Richie Cyr was doing construction work on a home on Old Farms West when agents descended on the area on June 5.

“They were out there with bulletproof vests on,” Cyr said. “Nobody came over here to tell us what was going on.” Cyr said agents seized several high-end cars from the home at 314 Old Farms West. Police also blocked off the street, only allowing residents in. A woman who answered the door at 175 Old Farms West said that Bokhari did not live there, and a woman at 314 Old Farms West said he was not home. Neighbors said Bokhari kept to himself and that they didn’t know him very well. The Hawthorne Inn remained open Tuesday afternoon. A message left there for Bokhari was not immediately returned.

BHS Valedictorian and Salutatorian

The Berlin High School valedictorian for the class of 2012 is Holly A. Robillard, daughter of Ellen and Roland Robillard. Robillard T h ro u g h out her high school career, Holly has excelled in a rigorous coursework in all subject areas. “Teachers comment on her exceptional effort, insightful class participation, and positive attitude,” a statement by the high school said.

For her, earning a 4.0 GPA0 was not enough. “I wanted to go higher than that,” she said. Becoming valedictorian was a life-long goal for the Berlin high student. She remembers telling her mom in first grade that she wanted the honor. She was bullied in middle school which only added to the motivation to prove herself academically, she said. Holly is a member of the Drama Club and co-captain of the Debate Team. She also volunteers her time to community service, such as the

Upbeat Peer Leadership Program, a student-led organization that creates and implements community service projects; the Teen Advisory Council at the local library, whose goal is to increase teen participation at the library and as a writing tutor at the high school. Additionally, she and a partner teach “Bollywood” dance lessons at a local studio. Holly initiated an independent study last semester at Berlin High School where she and a partner teach similar dance classes to juniors and seniors during physical education class. This fall, Holly plans to study engineering at the University of Connecticut. William D. Cavedon, son of David and Susan Cavedon, has been named salutatorian for the class of 2012. “He has been the enthusiastic voice that motivates others to get involved, and he is well respected by both the faculty and his peers,” said a statement by the high school. William has excelled in a rigorous course of studies

over four years, taking the h i g h e s t course levels in each subject throughout his tenure, while taking an interest in the fields of biolCavedon ogy and forensics. William augments his academic rigor with an interest in band, playing the trumpet as a section leader in the marching band, concert band, and the Redcoat Jazz Band. Cavedon, as well, has focused hard on academics throughout his time in Berlin schools. He did well in elementary school and decided to see how far he could go. “If I got a 90, I always wondered what I did not do to earn a 100,” he said. William leads by example in his activities. He has attended Boys’ State, a national youth leadership forum in Washington, D.C., and he has earned the Eagle Scout Award. He is a three sport

athlete, participating on the cross-country, indoor, and outdoor track teams, and has served as the captain of the cross country team since his junior year. He has earned recognition in all three sports through All-Academic and All-Conference awards. He is a five year member of the school’s FIRST Robotics Team, and a four year member of the Upbeat Peer Leadership program, serving as coordinator this year. Cavedon also is a peer tutor in the high school writing and math labs. William plans to major in biology at Providence College this fall. “It’s tough to leave so many people behind,” he said. While he says his college is a tight-knit community like Berlin high, he’s going to miss spending time with friends. For example, he goes out with friends about once a month to get his burrito fill at the No Name Grill. “I’m definitely going to miss the No Name Burrito Grill,” he said.

State archeologist to speak at library the Berlin Peck Memorial Library Tuesday, June 26, about the history of Berlin. The central Connecticut region has a long human history. Humans have lived in this area for about 12,000 years. Bellantoni will speak about Berlin’s archeological heritage from the ice age and the coming of the first Americans, through the influx of

Europeans. He will discuss the importance of preserving our past for future generations, and will conclude with information about everyone’s favorite hobo— the Leatherman. As many may have read in the news, Bellantoni was part of a team that exhumed

Have you ever found something while digging in your yard, or found something in the walls of your old house? If you have, you likely have wondered how it got there, and about the people who lived there before you. Dr. Nick Bellantoni, the state’s archeologist, has made a career of digging in the dirt and researching the artifacts found in the clay and gravel that carpets the landscape. He routinely studies the skeletons we find in our closets and elsewhere, and rebuilds the stories of their lives. Bellantoni will speak at Photo courtesy of Berlin Historical Society

The Berlin Citizen — Thursday, July 14, 2012 2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Advertisement

Kensington Fire District Kensington, CT PWSID CT0070011 CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT JANUARY 1, 2010 TO DECEMBER 31, 2010 LEGAL NOTICE We’re pleased to present to you our Annual Drinking Water Quality Report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report. This report, a requirement of the 1996 amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act, is designed to inform you about the quality of water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water.

Water Source Our water source consists of a consecutive supply from the New Britain Water Department, New Britain, CT. Our daily water production averages around 475,000 gallons, with an estimated yearly withdrawal of 173,439,000 gallons. We maintain approximately 44 miles of water main and our system serves a population of 9,180 residents and maintains 3,080 service connections. Our certified lab is New Britain Water Laboratory. Since we purchase our water from the New Britain Water Department, we are not required to treat our water. Over the past year we have completed some improvements to our system. They consisted of replacing ten of our older fire hydrants. We also began installing a radio-read metering system. Some future improvements will include the replacement of the Everett Street, Fairview Drive, and Mattabassett Street water mains, and additional radio read meters. We have meetings every Monday at 6 pm at 947 Farmington Ave. (rear), Kensington, CT 06037. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water system, please contact Daniel McKeon, Superintendent, at mailing address PO Box 2, Kensington, CT 06037 or telephone 860-828-9781. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water system.

Source Water Protection Source water is untreated water from streams, rivers, lakes, or underground aquifers that is used to supply public drinking water. Preventing drinking water contamination at the source makes good public health sense, good economic sense, and good environmental sense. You can be aware of the challenges of keeping drinking water safe and take an active role in protecting drinking water. There are lots of ways that you can get involved in drinking water protection activities to prevent the contamination of the ground water source. Dispose properly of household chemicals, help clean up the watershed that is the source of your community’s water, attend public meetings to ensure that the community’s need for safe drinking water is considered in making decisions about land use. Contact our office for more information on source water protection, or contact the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at 1.800.426.4791. You may also find information on EPA’s website at http://cfpub.epa.gov/safewater/sourcewater/. A source water assessment report was recently completed by the Connecticut Department of Public Health, Drinking Water Division. The completed Assessment report is available for access on the Drinking Water Division’s web site: http://www.ct.gov/dph/cwp/view.asp?a=3139&q=398262&dphNav_GID=1824. The assessment found that this public drinking water source has a high susceptibility to potential sources of contamination. Additional source water assessment information can be found at the Environmental Protection Agency’s website: http://cfpub.epa.gov/safewater/sourcewater/.

Water Quality Kensington Fire District routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The following table shows any detection resulting from our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2011. It’s important to remember that the presence of these contaminants does not necessarily pose a health risk. The sources of drinking water include rivers, lakes, ponds and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and radioactive material and can pick up substances resulting from human or animal activity. All sources of drinking water are subject to potential contamination by substances that are naturally occurring or man made. Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. The table below lists all of the drinking water contaminants that were detected throughout water quality monitoring and testing. The presence of contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.

The IDSE is a one-time evaluation to determine the levels of disinfection byproducts (TTHM & HAA) in the distribution system for future requlations. Disinfection byproducts are the result of the disinfection of your drinking water. They form when the disinfectants combine with naturally occurring organic matter in the water. The IDSE data was not used for compliance purposes by the CT Department of Public Health-Drinking Water Section, and test results were not required to meet the MCL of 60 ppb for HAA and 80 ppb for TTHM.

Note: The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Not all contaminants are tested for every year due to monitoring waivers and therefore we must use the most recent round of sampling. Some of our data is more than one year old, however, it is limited to no older than 5 years. Units: Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter - one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000. Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) - picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water. Micrograms per Liter (ug/l) - a measure of radioactivity in water. Millirems per year (mrem/year) - a measure of radiation absorbed by the water. Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU) - nephelometric turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person. Definitions: Action Level (AL) - The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. Treatment Technique (TT) - A treatment technique is a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. Million Fibers per Liter (MFL) - Million fibers per liter is a measure of the presence of asbestos fibers that are longer than 10 micrometers. Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - The MCL is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) - The MCLG is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Drinking Water Equivalent Level (DWEL) - A lifetime exposure concentration protective of adverse, non-cancer health effects, that assumes all of the exposure to a contaminant is from a drinking water source. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) - The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Running Annual Average (RAA) - The average of all monthly or quarterly samples for the last year at all sample locations. Non Detect (ND) - The contaminant was not detected. Not Applicable, Not Established (N/A) IMPORTANT INFORMATION Lead - Major Sources in Drinking Water: Corrosion of household plumbing systems; erosion of natural deposits. Health Effects Statement: Infants and children who drink water containing lead in excess of the action level could experience delays in their physical or mental development. Children could show slight deficits in attention span and learning abilities. Adults who drink this water over many years could develop kidney problems or high blood pressure. Copper - Major Sources in Drinking Water: Corrosion of household plumbing systems; erosion of natural deposits; leaching from wood preservatives Health Effects Statement: Copper is an essential nutrient, but some people who drink water containing copper in excess of the action level over a relatively short amount of time could experience gastrointestinal distress. Some people who drink water containing copper in excess of the action level over many years could, suffer liver or kidney damage. People with Wilson’s Disease should consult their personal doctor. Arsenic: The U.S. EPA adopted the new MCL standard of 10 ppb in October 2001. Water systems must meet this new standard by January 2006. Fluoride: Fluoride levels must be maintained between 1-2 ppm, for those water systems that fluoridate the water. Lead/Copper: Action levels are measured at consumer’s tap. 90% of the test must be equal to or below the action level; therefore, the listed results above have been calculated and are listed as the 90th percentile. Total Coliform Bacteria - Reported as the highest monthly number of positive samples, for water systems that take <40 samples per month. Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful bacteria may be present. Our tests have all been negative. TTHM/HAA5: Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5) are formed as a by-product of drinking water chlorination. This chemical reaction occurs when chlorine combines with naturally occurring organic matter in water. Turbidity: Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can interfere with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth. Turbidity may indicate the presence of disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. For most people, the health benefits of drinking plenty of water outweigh any possible health risk from these contaminants. However, some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. We are responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for thirty (30) seconds to two (2) minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at httlp://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Water Conservation Tips Water conservation measures are an important first step in protecting our water supply. Such measures not only save the supply of our source water, but can also save you money by reducing your water bill. Water is a limited resource so it is vital that we all work together to maintain it and use it wisely. Here are a few tips you can follow to help conserve. Additional information on water conservation may be obtained by accessing EPA’s “Water Use Efficiency Program” webpage: http://www.epa.gov/owm/water-efficiency/index.htm: • Check for leaky toilets (put a drop of food coloring in the tank, let it sit, if the water in the bowl turns color, you have a leak). A leaking faucet or toilet can dribble away thousands of gallons of water a year. • Consider replacing your 5-gallon per flush toilet with an efficient 1.6 gallon per flush unit. This will permanently cut your water consumption by 25%. • Run only full loads in dishwashers and washing machines. Rinse all hand-washed dishes at once. • Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth, or shaving. • Store a jug of ice water in the refrigerator for a cold drink. • Water lawn and plants in the early morning or evening hours to avoid excess evaporation. Don’t water on a windy, rainy or very hot day. • Water shrubs and gardens using a slow trickle around the roots. A slow soaking encourages deep root growth, reduces leaf burn or mildew and prevents water loss. Select low-water demanding plants that provide an attractive landscape without high water use. • Apply mulch around flowers, shrubs, vegetables and trees to reduce evaporation, promote plant growth and control weeds. Shrubs and ground covers require less maintenance, less water and provide year-round greenery. • Be sure that your hose has a shut-off nozzle. Hoses without a nozzle can spout 10 gallons more per minute. • When washing your car, wet it quickly, turn on the spray, wash it with soapy water from the bucket, rinse quickly. • Be sure sprinklers water only your lawn, not the pavement. • Never use the hose to clean debris off your driveway. Use a broom. • Rinse other items, such as bicycles or trash, on the lawn to give your grass an extra drink. We, at Kensington Fire District, work hard to provide top quality water to every tap. Water is a limited resource so it is vital that we all work together to maintain it and use it wisely. We ask that all our customers help us protect and preserve our drinking water resources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life, and our children’s future. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for working together for safe drinking water.

Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, can be naturally occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. Pesticides and herbicides may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems. Radioactive contaminants can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

Local man involved in fatal collision A Newington woman died Monday night after being ejected from a vehicle during a collision on Interstate 91 in Rocky Hill. State police say Kevin Allen, 28, of East Haven and Richard Lewicki, 28, of Kensington, were both driving south on I-91 in the area of exit 24 and 23 when Lewicki veered to the right for an unknown reason and struck Allen’s vehicle. Lewicki’s vehicle rolled several times before coming to a stop off the road and shoulder, according to state police. While the vehicle was rolling, Jessica Zderkiewicz, 23, of Newington, was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries, according to state police. Allen’s vehicle spun out of control before also coming to a stop off the roadway. Lewicki was taken to Hartford Hospital with minor injuries and Allen was not injured during the crash, according to state police. -Richie Rathsack, Record-Journal

health notes: Lyme Disease-Be in the Know by Alina Osnaga, MD Lyme, CT was made famous in 1975 when Lyme disease was first identified there as a tick-borne infection. Its prevalence is highest between May and September. The following are ways to avoid contracting the disease:

1987 - 2012

• Wear protective, long clothing • Wear light-colored clothing to more easily spot ticks • Check skin daily for ticks • Remove ticks promptly • Keep brush cut short • Apply insect repellant with 20-30% DEET

How to Properly Remove a Tick Ticks should be removed immediately using tweezers. Pull the tick upward without twisting to avoid leaving part of the tick in the skin. Wash the area with soap and water and apply an antibiotic cream. Call your primary care physician to report the tick bite. Save the tick for later identification. Lyme ticks removed within 24 hour of exposure are very unlikely to transmit Lyme disease.

Days or weeks after the tick bite: • Generally feeling ill • Itchy body • Fever • Headaches • Chills • Lightheadedness Weeks or months after the tick bite, if left untreated: • Muscle pain • Paralysis • Swelling • Weakness of the face

• Muscle pain • Stiff neck • Spreading rash • Heart problems

Months or years after the tick bite, if left untreated: • Nervous system impairment • Recurrent joint swelling What’s the Treatment? Your doctor may prescribe a single dose of antibiotics as a preventive measure within 72 hours of the tick removal. If you have already been diagnosed with Lyme disease, antibiotics will also be prescribed, but the length of required treatment depends on the severity of symptoms and how long you have had the disease. The good news is that Lyme disease is curable. It is imperative though that you see your healthcare provider as soon as possible following a tick bite to prevent further complications.

Act now

To the editor: Now that the latest version of “Condogedom” and the Kensington Grammar School are over its time for St. Paul Church and school to put up or shut up. St. Paul can’t standby any longer; they need to purchase this property now. I’d rather see my offerings go to something worthwhile, instead of paying off numerous lawsuits plaguing the Catholic church. As St. Paul did some years ago to build its addition, asking for donations to fund the project the same

way should be done to purchase KGS. Another way to defer cost is the parishioners, some of which are contractors, landscapers, etc., could volunteer their services. Imagine the parcel of land put to use for some overflow parking but mostly a beautiful recreation field for the kids of St. Paul to play on. Or imagine an area of flowering trees, shrubs and plants for picture taking after a first communion, confirmation or wedding . To the leaders of St. Paul: it’s too important to pass up. Look into town grants, state grants and federal grants. Every time the KGS school is purchased the excuses of children in danger, gridlock and property values been played out.

Commentary

Dad, dandelions, DNA and destiny By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen Most of us have a favorite tool and mine is a little device I call the pokey-weeder. It’s magnificently simple. A long handle like a shovel or rake might have with a twotined fork on the end. Stick it into the soil at a slight angle to the root system of a weed, a quarter turn and viola you’ve made the extraction. In my case, the target is always a dandelion. I’ve easily done 10,000 removals; that’s with no bending and no dirt on my hands. Love my pokey-weeder, the ultimate low-tech tool. Sometime, around my 2,000 or 3,000 dandelion kill, I was struck by my crazed, single-minded focus on this aspect of lawn care; the distain I feel for those who freely yield their property to

the yellow plague. How I pull into the driveway and immediately spot a neon yellow offender, shamelessly waving about on the far side of the house. Rather than rushing to greet my family, including a lonely mutt, I throw my work bag down on the steps grab the pokey-weeder (always at the ready by the front door) and full-throttle head towards my target. And so I became aware of my dedication to this War on Dandelions because it was remarkably like the one my Dad waged 50 years ago when I was a kid. Only my Dad (now passed on) didn’t use an environmentallyfriendly pokey-weeder. He was strictly a weapons of mass destruction kind of guy. Why take chances and use a hand grenade when an atomic bomb would guarantee results. He had a spray bottle with a home-made label and he’d walk around the yard for hours dousing each offender with curses and the deadly elixir, something he’d concocted in his workroom back in the barn where he liked to hang out by himself with a radio and beer cooler no one was allowed to touch. I’m guessing his secret dandelion juice definitely contained DDT, cigarette ashes

and hootch, or whatever combination of poisons is most likely to reduce a dandelion to toxic waste that will take nature eight billion millennia to reclaim. My Dad wasn’t big on nature having a say in these matters. Man’s manifest destiny was to control and contain nature - especially those dastardly dandelions. Tomato hornworms were also on his must-kill list. I grew up thinking tomato plants were white, that’s how much death-powder he put on them. I’d guess my mother was horrified, but there was no point in saying anything. My Dad knew everything and everyone else knew squat. So I walk around my yard, extracting dandelions, pondering nature versus nurture. Do I have a genetic predisposition to kill dandies or did watching my Dad stalk and spray them all those years of my youth seal my fate? There are no clear answers and I don’t claim it’s a pretty picture. But my Dad was my Dad, faults and all, and every time I jab my pokey-weeder in the ground and hear a dandelion scream, I know a little part of him is there with me.

some classrooms have SmartBoards and some have Easyteach boards, while others will not have interactive boards until the renovation is complete. In order for the implementation of technology to be consistent, each classroom will need to be equipped with the same technology. What is new curriculum-wise? In the BHS 2012-2011 Program of Studies, we have added new courses, including: advanced placement world history, an AP course organized around key concepts and themes, covering six chronological periods of world history from 600 BCE to the present. Secondly, the course “catastrophic events in science” features topics of current interest such as: asteroid impacts, black holes, gamma ray bursts, super-volcanoes, climate change, epidemics, super-earthquakes, and tsunamis.

Finally, “busting myths in science” is a project and labbased course based on the hit TV show MythBusters. By using scientific method students prove or debunk advertising claims, online videos, and myths in science. What is the biggest challenge this school year? The biggest challenge at BHS also is the most exciting theme, which is change. Changes have been implemented in our program of studies, staffing, teaching techniques, bell schedule, planning models, and, of course, in the renovate-asnew plan for our building. Nevertheless, all of the changes are synonymous with improvement, which is most inspiring for teachers, students, and parents. While BHS has been able to celebrate a plethora of great successes over the decades, we are united in our belief that the best is yet to come.

The board of education recently approved the latest scheme for the high school’s renovate-as-new project, which will soon be underway. The project will result in, essentially, a new school contained within the existing perimeter—or footprint—of BHS, with the exception of technical education workshops, which will be housed in a new connected exterior building.

Lady Redcoats repeat as state champs Coach: Team ‘the best ever’ By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen

This spring, Berlin High School girls golf coach Jim Barnes never let on just how good he believed the 2012 Lady Redcoats were, or could be. But now that the team has secured its second straight state championship, and the season is in the books, Barnes is speaking candidly about his squad. “I went back and looked at the history of the CIAC tournament. You look at the winning totals of the teams that won the state championship, and nobody broke 360. Well, this team just shot 348 at the state tournament on a par-74 course,” the second-year coach pointed out. “I really think this team has to be recognized as probably the best girls high school golf team ever in Connecticut. The numbers bear it out. These girls really have distinguished themselves. They’re the best ever.” Berlin carded the stunning 348 June 5 at Orange Country Club. The locals’ nearest competition at the state tournament, Farmington, finished seven strokes back. Heading into the season, prognosticators pegged Farmington — led by sisters Jen and Kelly Whaley — as the team to beat in the state.

The BHS girls golf team claimed its second straight state championship this spring. The champs are pictured with the 2011 and 2012 championship plaques, standing, from left: freshman Ashley D’Attilio, senior co-captain Victoria Fagan, senior co-captain Emily Stickel and freshman Julia Kemmling. Kneeling: junior Emily Deutsch. Kelly Whaley was match medalist at the state tournament with a 78. “Everyone was talking about Farmington, and rightfully so. The Whaleys are just phenomenal,” said

Barnes. “But the thing that made us so special was our depth. That was our key.” Farmington handed the Lady Redcoats their only loss this year, but

Berlin got the best of its old foe three times down the homestretch, including at the Central Connecticut Conference tournament. “We were riding pretty high, and we went over there and got smacked,” Barnes said, referring to his team’s lone defeat. “Since that match, I think the girls realized ‘whoa, we need to step this up a little bit.’ And we did.” Having lost its top player, Alyssa Scheyd, to graduation, Barnes was not sure what kind of season the Lady Redcoats may be looking at this time around. He knew the team would be solid, just maybe not championship-caliber. “We knew if we were going to repeat, we’d have to come up with something to fill the lineup out,” said Barnes. “And I got a couple of wonderful gifts from the freshmen class.” Freshmen Julia Kemmling and Ashley D’Attilio broke into the starting lineup and impressed from the outset. Kemmling, an All-State performer, shot 80 at the state tournament, which landed her in second place. “I knew she was going to be good. I didn’t know how good,” Barnes said of Kemmling. “She just turned out to be outstanding.”

Carasiti, Bordonaro get the call Press Release

Former Berlin High School pitching stars and teammates Matt Carasiti and Mark Bordonaro were selected during the 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft last week. Carasiti, out of St. John’s University, was taken by the Colorado Rockies in the sixth round. Bordonaro was scooped up by the Seattle Mariners in the 25th round. He plays for Fairfield University. The Jack Kaiser Award winner as the Most Outstanding Player at the 2012 Big East Tournament, Carasiti was 7-5 this season with a 3.98 ERA. The righty made 18

appearances, including 14 starts, and has 64 strikeouts in 83.2 innings of work. Carasiti, who has Carasiti worked as both a starter and a reliever in his career, is 16-11 in three seasons with eight saves and a 4.19 earned-run average in 66 appearances, 22 starts. Serving as the closer as a sophomore in 2011, the righty went 2-2 with eight saves and a 2.47 ERA. Carasiti was one of four St. John’s players taken in the first six rounds of this year’s MLB draft.

“I am very happy and excited for this group and it is a true testament to the success of the program to have four players selected in the top six rounds,” said St. John’s coach Ed Blankmeyer. “They have worked hard and performed consistently at a high level and have earned this opportunity.” St. John’s rolled up a record of 40-23 this season and advanced to the Super Regional of the NCAA tournament for the first time in the history of the program. Bordonaro, a righty, made 22 appearances for Fairfield in 2012, posting a 5-4 record. He struck out 31 batters in 42.2 innings of work and yielded a 5.70 ERA.

“We’re very happy for Mark,” Fairfield coach Bill Currier said. “He’s a very talented player that Bordonaro would be a great asset to any professional organization. As he continues to grow and develop, he will only get better.” In just three seasons as a Stag, Bordonaro has put his mark on the Fairfield record books. He is currently second all-time in career appearances with 65 and second alltime in saves with 12. Bordonaro, who has a career record of 12-9, has col-

lected 104 strikeouts in 131.1 innings and has a career ERA of 5.69. Bordonaro is the 14th player in program history to be drafted and the first since 2010 when Rob Gariano was taken in the 36th round by the San Diego Padres. Bordonaro’s selection is the highest since 2001 when Ryan Holsten was taken in the 22nd Round by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Fairfield went 27-28 overall and 14-10 in league play this spring and secured its first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament berth in more than a decade. -Nick Carroll contributed to this article

It’s on to track nationals for Voelpel; Rombola impresses at tennis tourney

In an incredible feat, Berlin High School junior Catherine Voelpel ran to a third-place finish in the 400 at the New England track and field championships. Her time of 56.52

bested her own school record. Voelpel’s performance at the New England’s qualified her for nationals in North Carolina, where she will compete Friday.

Berlin High School tennis star Dan Rombola’s incredible CIAC Class M state tournament run came to an end in the semifinals, where he lost to the top-seed, Foran’s

Bradley Orban, 6-0, 6-0. Just a sophomore, Rombola won four matches to earn a Final Four date with Orban, the eventual tournament champion.

Rombola went on to compete in the State Open, and fell to Ridgefield’s Arnauld Valentin, 6-1, 6-2, in the opening round. —Nick Carroll

Manzo: Legion program at a crossroads By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen

to travel teams. “It’s happening all over the state. There’s a lot of competition out there to keep kids in town. “I don’t know if people understand that college scouts and professional scouts are going to find you no matter where you are.” Seven members of the 2012 Berlin High School varsity squad are suiting up for Post 68 this year. They are: Jeff Sylvester, Tim Norton, Alec Norton, Colin King, Connor Bennett, Kyle Naples and Jordan Zima. The Legion roster also includes Northwest Catholic’s Andrew Dornfried, and college guys Brendan Germano, Will Matuszak, Mike Perno and Kevin DeVivo. The team is rounded out by Matt Rocco, Dante Vasi, Dan Wrona, Brandon Carasiti, Hunter Tralli and Dan Garafalo. Zone 3 looks tough. “No one’s feeling sorry for us,” said Manzo, who has led Post 68 to two state titles, six zone championships, and a trip to the American Legion

World Series. “We’re working with the kids that showed up to play. It’s hard to predict how well we’re going to do. We have four college guys that are going to kind of have to carry us. We’ll go as those guys go.” According to Manzo, the Berlin American Legion program is at a crossroads. If numbers don’t pick up, he sees a day when Post 68 is forced to merge with another Legion team, or perhaps disappear entirely. “It’s kind of up to the people in town to make the decision,” said Manzo. “I tell the

players – ‘This is your program.’ We’re too small a town to have kids go to different places and still expect to be competitive” at the Legion level. “It affected the high school team this year having kids not play together in the summer,” he continued. “We’re trying to keep kids playing together, and they all want to do their own thing. It should be about playing for your town, and taking pride in that. Maybe those days are gone. Maybe I’m too sentimental and old school.”

It’s a new season, but for the Berlin Post 68 American Legion team, the issue remains the same – numbers are low. At a glance, Berlin’s 18man roster looks pretty healthy, but skipper Rob Manzo points out that several of his guys are quite young and would be better served competing against kids their own age this summer. “It’s great that they’re with us. They’ll learn a lot. But they’re not ready, now,” said Manzo, in his 15th year

at the helm. “That’s kind of what we’re running in to.” So why have Post 68’s numbers dipped in recent years? Manzo said out-oftown travel teams have something to do with it. “There are a lot of different options out there. I know the guys in the feeder program are battling the same thing I am; trying to keep kids in town,” the veteran coach said. “There are some good coaches in the feeder system. I just don’t know if we’re given a fair shot to show what we can do.” Manzo said Berlin is not alone when it comes to losing potential Legion players
