New life for meeting house may begin this month By Amy Prescher Special to The Citizen

After sitting in limbo for years, activity is about to resume at the Worthington Meeting House on Worthington Ridge. While there have been renovations at the site, it’s been more than 35 years since the place housed town activities — not since the Board of Education vacated it in 1975. The Public Building Commission recently selected Silver/Petrucelli and Associates, Inc., of Hamden, to prepare designs for the interior renovation. The plan is to convert the interior into a museum for the Historical Society of Berlin and an au-

ditorium for arts and cultural events. While details of the contract are still to be ironed out, architects plan to begin measuring this month. Director of Public Works Art Simonian predicted the cultural center may open as early as the summer of 2013 if funding falls into place. The building is “in much better shape than it was five years ago,” Simonian said, referring to the exterior renovation and an upgrade to utilities over the past several years. Mayor Adam Salina said the restoration has been a long and arduous process, and that the project has been overshadowed by the more

urgent needs of the Berlin school buildings. Having funded Phase I of the restoration with bond, the town has turned future fundraising efforts over to the Friends of the Worthington Meeting House, a nonprofit group created in 2005. Although hopes were high that the Meeting House would soon be accessible following the restoration of exterior that took place from 2003 to 2005, the interior restoration has been dogged by delays. The plans of one architect were scrapped because the plan to house certain town offices in the building fell through. Another architect charged a significant fee and ultimately did not de-

Ancient rituals usher historic church into new era The parish of St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church in East Berlin celebrated the completion of interior renovations with a June 4 reconsecration ceremony, which turned out to be a summery Saturday afternoon. The Rt. Rev. Dr. Laura Ahrens, the first woman to hold the position of bishop suffragan in the diocese of Connecticut, officiated over the the service which included a procession around the church grounds to the accompaniment of a bagpipe. According to Rector Audrey Scanlan, the “Beating the Bounds” is an ancient English ritual marking the four corners of the churchyard and blessing the holy ground. Upon entering the church, Bishop Ahrens, along with the pastoral staff, knocked on the door three times to symbolize the arrival of God in the house of worship.

As summer unfolds, mayor hints at plans for town, self By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen

Church officials form a processional during a reconsecration of St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church June 4. As to the new interior, Lorry Jorsey of East Berlin said, “You walk in and it’s just spectacular. Before there were one-inch cracks in the walls.” The main sanctuary of the church underwent a major reconstruction during the past year, which included ripping up the floor and excavating the basement, as well as many structural improve-

ments and an overhaul of interior finishes. The youngest parishioner in attendance was four month-old Bryce Stack, who is the great-great-grandson of one of the original builders of the church. Following the ceremony the parish enjoyed refreshments on the lawn. — Amy Prescher

Mayor Adam Salina said he anticipates there soon will be announcements in regards to positive economic news for Berlin. In terms of his own future continuing on the Town Council, he framed his response with care. After recent discussions with state officials, Salina said he is confident that curSalina rent levels of funding for Berlin are safe. “We are fortunate with state funding,” he said. Furthermore, “We will continue to grow the tax base,” he said, indicating there will be announcements coming soon in regards to plans for vacant space and new manufacturing and jobs in town “that will help grow the Grand List. “ These developments include the Clark Drive industrial area in East Berlin and the Park Street industrial area off the Berlin Turnpike as well as a stand-alone enterprise. Salina said the town continues with “due diligence” in terms of the proposed purchase of property on Farmington Avenue for a new police station. The former Kensington Furniture store site is being considered for that use. See Salina, page 8

Making house calls a new venture for local veterinarian By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen

years, she worked at a Pennsylvania animal practice and then moved back to Connecticut in 1999. She worked for the next decade at the Connecticut Humane Society at the Fox Memorial Clinic, a service that provided vet care for those with financial needs. There came a point where Rio decided she needed “to take a step back.” Clinic work was fast-paced and there wasn’t much opportunity to develop relationships

with her clients. “I wanted to deliver basic medicine in a personal way.” Delivering home services seemed like “

After more than 20 years in veterinary practice, Kim Rio is taking to the road — but she’s still providing vet services to animals and their owners. Rio has launched a mobile veterinary service and she says there’s a growing demand for house calls. “It’s a little more flexible and good for people whose pets don’t travel well and get stressed. Animals are more

relaxed at home,” Rio said. Her Mobile Pet Vet service is stationed in Berlin and travels throughout central and northeastern Connecticut. She is in practice with Julie Barton, a certified veterinary technician, who helped her develop the new business. A Berlin High School graduate, Rio went on to earn an undergraduate degree from Smith College and a doctor of veternarian medicine at Tufts University. For eight

The Mattabassett District will conduct a public hearing tonight at 7 p.m., June 9, to explain the planned nitrogen removal upgrade project for its wastewater treatment facility in Cromwell. The meeting will be at the Cromwell Town Hall, 41 West St., Cromwell. The public hearing will include discussion of why the state Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S, Environmental Protection Agency have ordered wastewater facilities like Mattabassett to reduce the amount of nitrogen they discharge either directly or indirectly into Long Island Sound. In the case of the Mattabassett facility, it discharges wastewater into the Connecticut River, which then flows into the sound. “Our goal is two-fold. First, we want to explain the

need for and the details of the nitrogen removal upgrade project to any of the sewer users from New Britain, Berlin, Cromwell, Middletown and parts of Farmington, Newington and Rocky Hill, who are interested,” said William P. Candelori, Ph.D., chairman of Mattabassett’s Board of Directors. “Second, we want to get their input.” Members of Mattabassett District Board of Directors and its staff will be at the public hearing to explain how the upgrade project estimated at $100 million will be funded. Design engineers, meanwhile, will also be on hand to discuss the details of the project. The Mattabassett District’s Water Pollution Control Facility currently processes wastewater from New Britain, Berlin,

cut River. In operation since 1968, the facility treats on average 15 to 20 million gallons of wastewater per day, with a peak flow in excess of 75 million gallons per day.

During the event, flags for each branch of the military will be hoisted by members of those divisions and Chesery said he intends to recruit the town’s oldest vets to do the job. The plan is to install lights at the memorial, however, if that aspect can’t be finished in time, the flags will be raised and then retrieved at the end of the ceremony. There have been several developments in recent weeks at the site. Two new markers have been installed at the entrance to the memorial: one for the Berlin Veterans of Foreign Wars; and one for the American Legion Post 68. Also, owners of Legion Square, (the Stop & Shop plaza), have agreed to allow the renaming, of the road that cuts through the plaza, to Veterans Way.

“We’re moving forward with that…the next step would be a closing on that property,” Salina said, adding that there has been an extension on the purchase-sale contract. “We’re working to tie that into the rehabilitation of the train station and parking lot and how that project that will flow into the police station.” On a different front, this July, political parties will be putting together candidate slates for the election that will take place in November. Salina has held the post of mayor for the past four election cycles. When asked about his intent to run again, Salina joked, “Call my wife.” But the statement is only partially in jest. Salina said he told his wife, Danielle, the last three times he ran, that each was the “last time.” However, at this juncture, “We’re further along as a community then we were a couple of terms ago,” Salina said. “There are things, that were goals, that have come to fruition and I feel good about where the town is now.” Those goals included: finding a solution for the facility issues at Berlin High School — which ultimately led to a renovate-as-new plan for the school; getting the air quality control project approved for McGee Middle School; and a plan is in process to address the need for a new police station.

prehensive examinations, blood work, and other lab work, minor skin problems and infections — anything a standard clinic can do. However, services such as X-rays, surgery, and anesthesia require a regular clinic and Rio advises clients to have a veterinarian for those needs. After surgery when other more involved care is needed, Rio will check on treatment plan and help with post-surgical needs — again, eliminating the need for the recovering animal to travel. Rio said there is a growing awareness of the benefits of euthanasia at home and that more people are requesting this for their aged or ill pets.

Give me a break

To the editor: I have already accepted the Bill Petit Little League Complex and its games in my neighborhood. I accept the traffic, the practice sessions, the games, the cheering crowds, and the extremely loud speakers and I have never complained. So why is The Berlin Little League demanding that I must accept four 60’ tall lights? Come on, give me a break. Let our residential neighborhood have our peace and quiet at night with no lights. If you have scheduling problems maybe the town can build you another field with lights in a non-residential area. The homes in this neighborhood were built in the

1940’s and 1950’s, way before the little league field; which was built in the late 1990’s. I moved into this neighborhood because it was quiet and peaceful, not to endure night-time baseball games. Is there any real necessity for the lights? The lights are an unfair and unreasonable demand on the residents surrounding the complex. We do not want the lights. Thanks a lot, Berlin Little League for your “enlightening” demand. Don Oliver Kensington

Memorial Day appreciation To the editor: The Berlin Veterans’ Commission would like to extend its thanks to all who participated in the Memorial Day program. In addition to the Veterans Commission, there are many people involved in organizing the parade and ceremony, including the mayor, the council, speaker State Representative Joseph

Aresimowicz, the police honor guard, town departments, Jim McNair for the invocation and benediction and the Berlin High School chorus and trumpeters. And, finally to those who would have participated by marching in the parade to honor our fallen veterans, we thank you very much. Paul N. Eshoo Berlin Veterans Commission

Golf kudos To the editor: The Berlin High School men’s and women’s golf teams recently completed quite successful seasons. Highly competitive golf teams at Berlin High School are not unusual. A major factor in the high school golf program’s annual success stems from the outstanding support of Timberlin Golf Course’s staff and the town of Berlin.

From Facebook What are you reading this summer? This summer we plan to run several stories on reading, so if you have a story or idea that involves a book (a book club, an author you met, a book review you want to share) tell us about it at Recently we asked our Facebook fans what recommendations they had for summer reading — fiction, non fiction, serious or fun stuff. Here’s what they said: —Janet Evanovich is the best. I think it would come under the category of funny mysteries. They are working on a movie of her first book. My mother says the main character’s grandma and her friends are a riot! — Just read Firefly Lane for book club. Not fluffy — it’s over 400 pages, but a quick read because it sucks you in. Takes you back to your childhood summers, for those of us in our 40s! It was a good discussion book. Spoiler alert: sad ending. — If you are looking for a hilarious book that is fast to read but still has some meat to it, I recommend Dear American Airlines. Told from a guy’s point of view (which was different for me,

since in our women’s book club we tend to read books from female characters’ points of view). I laughed out loud at some parts! — The epic 12 book fantasy Sword of Truth series beginning with Wizard’s First Rule Book 13 is due out this year, by Terry Goodkind. — Lee Child’s Reacher series is great. Killing Floor, Trip Wire, The Visitor...there’s about a dozen. Reacher is a classic American loner-hero. Child is English, but you’d never know it from his novels. He was a script writer so his prose is action packed. Perfect for the beach, air travel, anytime except bedtime, ‘cause you can’t put it down. — Watchers by Dean Koontz. I work at NBHS and have been lending that book out to students and teachers for the last three years. I haven’t heard one bad review of it yet. The book has everything: A super-smart golden retriever, a psycho killer, a love story, a big hairy monster, realistic protagonists who everyone can relate to, lots of action and some very funny parts. Easily my favorite book, but as already mentioned, the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind is terrific also. — Comeback America, by David Walker, former comptroller general for a number of presidents. What the country needs to do to get our economic house in order. — Tropical Freeze by James W. Hall is a lot of fun and would make a great movie. It can get gory, but you can just close your eyes during those parts...I mean skip ahead.

Guarding the flock?

Join the Chamber The Berlin’s Chamber of Commerce Member Development Campaign is an ongoing project according to executive director, Katherine Fuechsel. The intent of the campaign is to promote businesses, provide networking opportunities for members, and enhance business in town. “Especially in the recession, we look for new ways to get new businesses. We are willing to work to with each individual,” Fuechsel said. Out of 1,200 businesses in town, there are 200 that are

part of Berlin’s Chamber of Commerce. The campaign starts with the main business district of Farmington Avenue and branches out to other businesses in town. “Doing this helps to refresh peoples memory of who is in town and who owns what businesses,” Fuechsel said. Benefits for businesses include marketing, referrals from other businesses, and events like the lunch exchange and Annual Berlin Chamber Golf Tournament.

From the first day of practice and throughout the 2011 season, Marc Bayram, Jacob Halligan, and the rest of Timberlin’s staff treated the golf teams royally. Providing ample access to the golf course and practice range balls, as well as giving advice and encouragement to the teams’ players, greatly enhanced and enabled the team members’ success. We coaches of the BHS Golf teams extend our hearty gratitude to Marc, Jacob, Timberlin Golf Course, and Berlin for the unparalleled support the BHS golf teams received this season.

Knights help out To the editor, I would like to take this time to send a heartfelt thank you to the Summer

Knights Car Club. The Knights heard about our son, Jonathan, and his monthlong stay at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and his subsequent recovery. They opened their hearts and planned their 20th Annual Car Show and Swap Meet for Jonathan’s benefit. All of the Knights and Ladies were so welcoming and treated Jonathan and our family wonderfully. The Silva family is honored to have been chosen as this year’s benefit recipient, and couldn’t have asked for a better group to work with than the Summer Knights. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Jessica, Tyler, Alexander and Jonathan Silva East Berlin

Carnival fun To the editor: The Hubbard School Carnival Committee would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the businesses that donated items for our third annual Hubbard School Carnival. It would not have been a success without their generosity. Volunteers from Upbeat were amazing and we would

not have been able to provide the games and activities without their time, energy and enthusiasm. Teachers, staff and parents of Hubbard students were also a huge help. Thanks to all who supported this FUNraiser. Hope to see you there again next year. Andrea Cofrancesco, Doreen Letendre and Shannon Sweitzer Carnival co-chairs

Celebrating Our Success Ms. Liz is a 82 year young gal that up till several months ago lived at home alone. After several years of putting it off, she finally decided to have the long awaited heart surgery. After a very medically complicated post operative stay at the hospital we met Liz not really knowing if she was coming to us for short term or long term care.

Closing in on perfection Undefeated Lady ‘Coats win CCC title By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen At press time, the Berlin High School girls golf team was on the cusp of completing a perfect campaign. The Lady Redcoats were slated to compete in the CIAC state tournament Tuesday. A win there would secure an undefeated season for the locals. Check out The Citizen website and Facebook page for updates. Berlin bumped its season record to 27-0 last week by besting the 12-team field at the Central Connecticut Conference tournament, held at Timberlin. Paced by Victoria Fagan’s 88, the champs turned in a score of 361 at the 18-hole event. “This was a very special day for the girls,” BHS coach Jim Barnes said. “Winning this tournament was one of this team’s most important goals for 2011. We have one more big dream — a state championship. We will get our chance Tuesday at Orange Hills Country Club.” After Fagan, Berlin’s other scorers were Emily Stickel (89), Alyssa Scheyd (90) and Emily Deutsch (94). All four finished in the Top 10 and were awarded medals. The Lady Redcoats’ nearest competition at the CCC tournament, Conard, finished 20 strokes back. Farmington was third with a 386. Jen Whaley, of Farmington, was tournament medalist with an 83. Citizen photo by Nick Carroll Prior to the CCC tournament, Berlin secured the CCC West Divi- Berlin High School’s Emily Stickel finishes sion title with a 167-258 win over New her round at the Central Connecticut ConBritain at Stanley. The 167 is the Lady ference tournament, held at Timberlin last Redcoats’ best score of the year, and is believed to be the BHS girls golf week. The Lady Redcoats won the event goprogram’s lowest round ever. Also, ing away. against New Britain, Deutsch fired Berlin’s lowest individual score of the season, a 38. Scheyd, Fagan and Stickel had 43s that day. After completing the regular nine-hole match, Berlin and New Britain set on another nine to complete the 18-hole Pisk Memorial Tournament. Scheyd was medalist for the tournament with an 86. The Lady Redcoats won the event handily.

BHS boys ninth in Division II Kevin Jud shot an 80 to lead the Berlin High School boys golf team to a ninth-place finish at the CIAC Division II state tournament, held Monday at Crestbrook Park in Watertown. The Redcoats put up a 338 that afternoon. Rounding out the Berlin slate was Jeremy Desimone (83), Connor Bowen (87), Brendon Hull (88) and Pat Bostrom (89).


Veleas praises Barnes, seniors in wake of tournament loss By Jim Bransfield Special to The Citizen At the end of the day, Berlin High baseball coach Leo Veleas was satisfied. “We were 18-5, and that’s pretty good,” said the veteran coach after his team was eliminated from the Class L tournament by Foran of Milford, 6-5. “There are people who would kill for a record like that.” Veleas went on to praise his nine seniors and especially pitcher Austin Barnes. “He was 8-1 and without him, there’s no way we have 18 wins,” he said. “But all the kids were responsible for our year. This group did a great job. Heck, we won the Central Connecticut Conference South Division and we went to the quarterfinals. If things were just a little bit different, we’d still be playing.”

In that loss to Foran, the Redcoats got off the deck in the last inning. Berlin had the tieing run on base with its number 3-4-5 hitters coming up in the seventh inning. “We were down five runs and we got four,” said Veleas. “We had our chance, we just couldn’t quite come all the way back. We just fell a little bit short.” Veleas, whose expectations are high every season, said his club met expectations. “We had four kids hit over .300 and we had one player, Brendan Germano, who hit over .370 and struck out just three times all season,” said Veleas. “But without getting into more names, the kids turned in a very good year. Not everything goes the way you want it, but 18-5 is pretty good.”

The Berlin High School girls tennis team was bested by Avon, 5-2, last week in the semifinals of the CIAC Class M state tournament. The Lady Redcoats topped Bacon Academy, Ellington and Tolland to advance to the Final Four. Prior to this year, the deepest the BHS girls tennis program had ever advanced in the state tournament was the second round. Berlin rolled up a regular season record of 13-1 this spring en route to claiming the Central Connecticut Conference South Division title.

Voelpel tops in Class MM, fifth at Open By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen

Boys’ season comes to a close The Berlin High School boys track and field team had no athletes qualify for the State Open. Berlin’s season came to a close at the Class MM meet. Leading the Redcoats at that event was Jim Nolan (seventh place, pole vault), Shaun Sullivan (eighth place, pole vault) and Connor Hilbie (seventh place, 3,200). Nolan and Sullivan each tied their personal-best. Hilbie achieved a season-best.

For the rest of her scholastic career, Catherine Voelpel will have a bullseye on her back. Last week, Voelpel, a Berlin High School sophomore, bested the 400-meter field at the CIAC Class MM state championship meet and placed second in the 200. The event was held at Middletown High School. Voelpel not only won the 400, she dominated. Her nearest competition finished 1.37 seconds behind — an eternity in speed events. Also, Voelpel helped lead Berlin’s 4x800 team to a sixthplace showing. Joining her in the relay were Stefanie Parillo, Kaylene Sylvain and Alex Carbonell. As did Voelpel, Carbonell

also had a big day as an individual competitor. The junior was runner-up in the 800 with a career-best time of 2:23.19. Powered by Voelpel and Carbonell, Berlin generated 36 points and finished seventh at the Class MM meet. “I am thrilled with the results and the effort all the girls put in, not only today, but throughout the season in preparation for this meet,” BHS coach Steve Soucy said. Also generating points for the Lady Redcoats at the




Class MM meet were Kate Piotrowicz (sixth place, discus; eighth place, shot put) and Kaylene Sylvain (sixth place, 1,600). Voelpel and Carbonell went on to represent Berlin at the State Open, which took place Monday at Willowbrook Park in New Britain. The Open brings together the top performers from the Class LL, L, MM, M and S meets. Carbonell placed 15th in the 800 on Monday with a career-best time of 2:22.79, which is a mere .23 seconds off the school record. Voelpel competed in the 400 and 200 at the Open. She finished fifth in the 400 with a school-record time of 57.77, and for her efforts, earned a spot in this weekend’s New England championships in Vermont. Voelpel landed in 21st place in the 200 (26.37).

The season ended sooner than third baseman Erin McKinnon, pictured, and the Berlin High School softball team wanted it to, but the Lady Redcoats had an excellent run this spring. The locals rolled up a record of 15-6 and finished second in the Central Connecticut Conference South Division. Berlin fell to Bristol Eastern, 3-2, last week in the opening round of the CIAC Class L state tournament.

Arute. McGee’s Julia Lagace ignited a four-run sixth inning rally with a double. That was followed by RBI singles by Tara Hoffman, Sarah Bosco, Anderson and Nina D’Amato. McGee 11, Durham 6: Abbie Underwood played an outstanding game behind the plate and also collected two

Prior to topping Academy, Frans defeated Hadfield’s Sports Shop. Game-winner Cohen pitched six innings and struck out seven. Cooney pitched one inning and had one

strikeout. Lanteri came through with a walk-off double against Hadfield’s. Cohen scored six times. Mary Lattarulo had a double, two singles and scored four runs.

Then came the dramatic game with Foran of the Southern Connecticut Conference, as the Redcoats came roaring back from 6-1 down, only to miss by a run.

Society was named Worthington, after Colonel Worthington of Springfield, Mass., who was instrumental in brokering the division. The old meeting house, which had been home to divisive parishioners, was disassembled and its parts were reused in both of the new meeting houses. The Worthington Meeting House served its Congregational community as a place of worship until it moved to the Gothic Revival church a little further south along the ridge in 1855. It was sold to the town in the same year,

Preservationists today favor a more layered approach to restoring cultural monuments and would advocate saving classroom furnishings as well as religious furnishings. The Worthington Meeting House was one of two built when the congregation of the Christian Lane Meeting House split into separate ecclesiastical societies in 1772.

Those who attended Worthington School may remember the exterior of the meeting house did not look as it does today. Windows were smaller and set closer to the entrance. In an attempt to recon-
