Council reviews Irene’s impact, FEMA funds likely By Amy Prescher Special to The Citizen

The Town Council met Sept. 6 and the impact of Hurricane Irene, on the town, was part of the discussion. The council also approved various equipment costs for services around town. Town Manager Denise McNair said she was satisfied

with the town’s response to Hurricane Irene and reported that Berlin was lucky compared to other towns. She expects that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will approve funds to offset significant overtime and other expenses incurred by the town during the storm. McNair said the See Council, page 8

Hotel California, the original Eagles tribute band, is just one of the great entertainment offerings at the 63 Annual Berlin Fair.

Fair brings entertainment galore to town It’s no exaggeration to say that entertainment at the Berlin Fair has it all. But don’t take our word for it — check it out. (The 63rd Annual Berlin Fair is held at the Lions Club fairgrounds, Beckley Road, Sept. 30, Oct.,1 and Oct. 2.)

Day of tribute

Country music star — Lee Brice is right at home playing his music at state fairs. “It’s a great opportunity to reach more and more fans,” Brice said. “I like getting to know them and let them get to know me. I’m just a boy from South Carolina and a lot like them.” Brice will be on the on the Berlin Fair concert stage at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, playing songs from his CD, Love Like Crazy. “I like a lot of different kinds of music — anything that moves me,” said Brice, who just got off a summer tour with Willie Nelson. “I love rock, blues, soul and country. I have a lot of influences. When I do live shows, a lot of that comes out of me.” Berlin fans might be able to relate to this description of Brice’s voice as conjuring a vision of “country girls and redneck boys anticipating the night to come in the sun-

set glow of a Dairy Queen” (Sumter County) and of growing up “on the edge of a cornfield” (Picture of Me). But Brice’s dreams of success include more than country. “Ten years from now I’d love to hear my songs on the radio – on the rap stations, not just country.” Lee’s debut album, Love Like Crazy, made one of the strongest debuts in any genre over the past several years. According to his press release, “That’s when you realize that if anybody can make this happen, it’s this young man from backcountry South Carolina. His voice, his sound, even his wide-open grin are as country as they come – but his view of life is much broader than that.”

Baczewski won’t run for another BOE term

Board of Education member Michael Baczewski will not seek a second term. Baczewski said he has one year of study left at the University of Connecticut and that is where his focus is at this time; thus he’s decided not to continue with the school board. This November there are three open positions on the Board of Education. There is Baczewski one vacancy on the board at this time, due to the resignation of Anthony Recck, and two board members whose terms have expired: Baczewski and Irene H. Matulis. Three individuals have taken out petitions to appear on the ballot: incumbent Irene Matulis; Timothy Oakes who ran previously; and Mark Holmes. The board is a nine member, non-partisan board. Each member is elected to a three year term and the terms are staggered so that

Unusual rain swamps Lower Lane again

each year three positions are up for election. Since candidates are not nominated by political parties, all Berlin voters are eligible to appear on the ballot, and candidates appear on the ballot without a political party designation. Baczewski said “It was a high privilege to serve on the board. I enjoyed my time there.” He served on the curriculum committee (leadership, accountability and measurement) and the budget committee (resources and capacity.) The board hired Superintendent David Erwin and Berlin High School Principal Fran Kennedy, during Baczewski’s term. As to whether or not he might consider another run, Baczewski said he would have to see where things stood when that possibility arose. Baczewski said the success of the high school referendum, during his term, was a “high mark, to have people come together to accomplish this for the community.”

An overnight rain storm Sept 7. into the morning of Sept. 8, once again caused the Mattabesset Stream at Lower Lane, to flood forcing the town terporarily to close off the street. At least three inches of rain fell and that was “pretty unusual event,” according to Public Works Director Art Simonian. Simonian’s storm calculations from local data, combined with Department of Transportation data, showed that the storm was a 10 to 25 year event. Tropical Storm Irene that hit at the end of August was a 50 year event. Beckley Mills Road was also temporarily closed during the storm. Simonian said Lower Lane is part of the floodway and takes water from several areas of town and even from the southwest corner of Meriden. A floodway is designed to accommodate the flow, acting, essentially, as a river for excess flow. “It’s such a flat area,” Simonian said adding that an extra culvert has been installed as part of the attempt to improve the situation. Lower Lane, in the vicinity of the river, is constructed to take the flooding. Any other solution would be complicated, Simonian said, involving acquiring property among other considerations. During Irene, the Railroad Pond dam was lowered three feet in order to help regulate the flow of water that would ordinarily impact Burnham Street, where it crosses the river, which often floods the road. This helped by separating the timing of when the water came through, thus reducing the impact of the rain. — Olivia L. Lawrence

See Bobcat, page 10


After he saw a big cat down near a stream at the back of his house, it took Ronnie Laviana a minute to realize, this was not just an extra-large stray. He ran to grab his camera. It was the Friday before Labor Day, late in the afternoon, on the Lavianas’ farm on the Chamberlain Highway. “He was walking down by the brook,” Laviana said. “He was kind of big. And he had no tail.” Although this was the first time he’d ever seen a bobcat, Laviana was sure that was the correct identification. He quietly left the house, careful not to slam the door, and moved closer to where the big cat was prowling. “He was sitting down” near a greenhouse, at one point, and Laviana started taking photos. The bobcat turned and looked right at him. Laviana said it was tricky trying to get a clear shot of the animal, as the bobcat moved quickly, and every few seconds. “I wasn’t going to pet that cat,” he joked. His neighbors had seen the cat last spring and told him the animal had “walked right down my driveway,” Laviana said. Paul Rego, a wildlife biologist at Sessions Woods, Burlington, with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, talked about the Connecticut’s bobcat population and the ani-

This bobcat was seen recently meandering around a backyard on the Chamberlain Highway.

Thank you. On August 28, Irene produced a destructive storm that uprooted trees, brought down limbs, closed more than 2,000 roads and resulted in power outages that disrupted the lives of more than 700,000 CL&P customers. We understand that, especially in today’s digital world, being without power is frustrating. Our local officials and customers not having timely access to information increases that frustration. Very clearly, we need to do a better job of providing our customers and local officials with the information they need. And we will do better. We’d like to thank you, our customers, for your patience and understanding. We’d also like to thank everyone who helped us weather Irene and safely restore service to our customers: • Local police, fire and emergency crews. • The more than 1,500 line and tree crews who were brought in to assist from as far away as Seattle, Washington, and Vancouver, British Columbia. • Our customer service representatives, who answered more than one million of your calls. • The more than 4,000 CL&P, Public Service of New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts Electric, Yankee Gas and Northeast Utilities employees who came together to help. • The hundreds of Connecticut businesses that provided essential services and supplies to support our restoration efforts. • The media for sharing our important storm preparedness and safety messages. We are especially grateful to Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy for his leadership. We also thank the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the state’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Operations, as well as state and municipal officials for their cooperation and support throughout this intensive process. Events like these challenge us all. We understand that restoring power is critical to you, our customers, and our communities. We are committed to continuous improvement, and will take every measure possible to achieve that goal. Sincerely,

Jeff Butler President and Chief Operating Officer The Connecticut Light & Power Company

Berlin Public Works Director Art Simonian is treasurer of TROC. “Like BRRFOC, Tunis Recycling has worked hard to reduce expenses and ensure that reserve funds are available to support operations, if needed,” he said in a report from the organization


Berlin’s Recycling Coordinator Jim Horbal says that, overall, the program is “running smoothly.” The big blue bins are working well and residents are using these properly. “We’ll hear from Trash-Away if there’s a problem,” Horbal said. In that case, the town would make an informal call to the homeowner to resolve the issue. But these situations have been “few and far between,” Horbal said. As to homeowners satisfaction with the system, Horbal said “So far, there have been no complaints.” There is good news on cost, for the system, as well. The tipping fee, through the Tunxis Recycling Operating Committee, has come down from about $34 a few years back, then to $30, and now $20 per ton. Last year the tonnage of recycling was down a tad, possibly people buying less stuff in a tight economy, ac-

cording to Horbal. It costs about $196 per household to collect trash and most towns do not charge separately for trash collection, he said. Materials for recycling are delivered to Automated Material Handling, located on Christian Lane. Household refuse — municipal solid waste — goes through Bristol, through the Bristol Resource Recovery Facility Operating Committee, which contracts with Covanta Bristol, a waste-to-energy plant. In regards to waste delivered to BRRFOC, budget documents state that tipping fees have been reduced to the lowest rate in the project’s history: $64.50 per ton. The 2011-2012 fee charged to Berlin is estimated at about $680,000 to BRRFOC

Unit prices are established by state, through the Department of Administrative Services, and Turf Products is the state low bidder.

mal’s temperment. “It’s rare for them to be aggressive towards humans,” Rego said, the only exception would be if the cat was sick, such as with rabies. Generally, if they are after food, they will go for poultry. The bobcat is a member of the lynx family. Its diet is typically rabbits, but it will hunt anything from insects to small rodents to deer. Most weigh from about 25 pounds, but Rego said he has “seen a coupel close to 40 pounds” for a mature male. They have a home range of about five miles for females and slightly further for

males. According to several education sources, the bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semi-desert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. It persists in much of its original range and populations are healthy. Rego said a population study has not been done, in Connecticut, on the species. However, he said his department receives “a fair number of photographs” of the bobcat. “Bobcats are common in much of northwestern Connecticut, not as common in the rest of the state.”

Recycling Continued from page 7 Brisol. “Given the state of the economy and the significant portion of municipal budgets dedicated to the disposal of (municipal solid waste), BRRFOC’s ability to hold the line on our tipping fee will be welcome news,” said Bristol Mayor Art Ward, BRRFOC president.

Simonian said he is “eager to get the town to single stream recycling” and that he has had several inquiries from residents about this. “Recycle first, trash second,” Simonian said, of the best way to view discarding materials. Every ton of materials that can be removed from trash disposal costs, and sent to recycling, will save money for the town and residents.

American dream

To the editor: Prior to Sept. 11, 2001, I took the greatness of America for granted; not anymore. We can sum up the greatness of America in two words: freedom and opportunity. My dad was an immigrant toddler processing through Ellis Island, in about 1900, with his parents, brothers and sisters. They came to New York from Naples, Italy with the hope of a better life. At first they stayed with relatives living in a tenement at 3rd Avenue and 40th Street, New York, within walking distance to Grand Central Station. Eventually, this worked out because my grandfather was a barber

and was able to secure work at a barber shop within Grand Central. The first years were a difficult struggle and there were days that seemed impossible. I can remember my dad’s phrase “at times we lived in dire poverty.” But there were groups of support. The first Italian immigrants tended to live together in the same neighborhood. And so with the support and encouragement of family, friends, and neighbors and with a deep conviction to their Christian faith, these poor immigrants knew they could succeed. My dad embraced these opportunities. As a young man, he graduated from Columbia University as a pharmacist and went to work for a Liggitt Drug Store in New York. He was able to save money and went on to graduate from Vanderbilt University as a dentist. He then opened a dental office on Atlantic Street in Stamford in 1927. He became the first Ital-

ian-American dentist in Connecticut. What other country in the world could offer an immigrant such an extravagant opportunity? There are people within and without America who would like to deny us our great heritage. If anything positive comes out of the terrible events of Sept. 11, it is an awareness that we must constantly protect the great freedom and great opportunities that God and country have so generously given to us. Richard Zaccardo Berlin

Local GOP leader prevails in SEEC complaint By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen Former Republican Town Councilor Scott Veley has prevailed in a complaint against the Connecticut Education Association for improper distribution of absentee ballots last winter. Veley, who currently serves Senatorial District 6 representative to the Republican State Central Committee, filed the complaint, in February, with the state’s Election Enforcement Commission. He charged that the CEA violated state statutes regarding the distribution of absentee ballots when, in January, it mailed absentee ballots to 3,626 CEA members prior to a special election scheduled for Feb. 22 without following the re-

quired procedure. The SEEC agreed, with some caveats, with most of the issues outlined in the complaint and the CEA was fined $500 civil penalty for the violation. The law requires that distribution of more than five ballots requires going through the Town Clerk’s office. Furthermore, the ballot distribution must include an absentee ballot fact sheet. The following information is from SEEC documents regarding its decision, issued Aug. 1. Veley’s complaint states that the CEA failed to register distribution of the ballots in the respective towns of the recipients and failed to include a written explaination of absentee See Leader, page 25

Seasonal flu vaccination is recommended for everyone age 6 months and older. The flu vaccine protects people from the three strains of influenza that are likely to be circulating this flu season. For the 2011-2012 season, the vaccine is comprised of A/California/7/2009 (H1N1), A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008. Flu vaccines provide annual protection and flu strains change regularly, so it is important to get a new flu shot every year. The Central Connecticut Health District has scheduled flu vaccination clinics in Berlin, Newington, Rocky Hill, and Wethersfield according to the following schedule: In Berlin — Thursday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to noon and Thursday, Oct. 27 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Community Center.

Berlin High School Fall Sports Preview

Several teams eyeing titles this season By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen

The 2011 fall sports season at Berlin High School kicked off this week. The following takes a look at the BHS varsity teams that will be competing this fall:


Coach: John Capodice (eighth year, 61-17). Assistants: John Paul Demko, Rob Levesque, Mike Mendoza, Bob Mayette, Joe Aresimowicz, Rick DeGroff, Mark McLeod, Don Dellaquila, Rocky Gagliardi, Eric Cruanes.

Last year: The Redcoats claimed the Central Connecticut Conference Division III championship and earned the No. 1 seed in the CIAC Class M state playoffs, where they fell in the quarterfinals. The locals ended the year with a mark of 10-1. Key losses: Berlin graduated 19 players, and with them, virtually its entire starting lineup. This season: To say the 2011 Redcoats are unproven is an understatement. This fall, Berlin has 21 new players on defense and 20 new players on offense. The Redcoats’ only re-

turning starter is Tommy Undercuffler, a senior defensive back/wide receiver. Last year, Undercuffler caught six passes for 129 yards, and made 35 tackles. Undercuffler and fellow senior Dan Laviana, an offensive lineman/linebacker, are team captains. Others expected to pull weight this season are seniors Dan Lojko (offensive line/defensive line) and Devin Silverman (kicker/defensive back), sophomore quarterback Mitch Williams, and juniors Mitch Blanchette (offensive line/defensive line), Kevin Main (running back/defensive back), Tyler Bouchard (linebacker/tight end), Chris Meucci (offensive line/defensive line), Justin Gombotz (running back/defensive back) and Scott McLeod (running back/defensive back). Outlook: Coach Capodice hopes Berlin can make up for its youth with hard work. If his guys play up to his expectations, Capodice believes the Redcoats will be formidable. In fact, Berlin, as usual, plans to be in the hunt for a conference and state title. “These kids have been a pleasure to coach in the preseason,” Capodice said. “They are improving on a daily basis, and we have an outstanding coaching staff to lead them.”

Boys soccer Coach: Dave Francalangia (12th year, 72-87-19). Assistant: Sal Parafati. Last year: A modest 13th seed, the Redcoats advanced to the semifinals of the CIAC Class L state tournament and wrapped up the season with a 12-5-3 record. Berlin’s state tournament Photo by Matt Leidemer Final Four appearance was a With a strong core of seniors, including Lia D’Amato, first for the program. pictured, the Berlin High School volleyball team exKey losses: The Redcoats pects to be very competitive. graduated 11 starters.

Alex Bednarek, pictured, and the Berlin High School boys soccer team are out to prove last year’s run to the state semifinals was no fluke. This season: Although hit hard by graduation, Berlin returned some proven players, including sophomore midfielder/defenseman Alex Bednarek, who is expected to have a break-out year. The Redcoats also will lean heavily on Connor Hilbie. A senior defenseman, Hilbie knocked in four goals and dished out 11 assists in 2010. Teaming up with Hilbie in the back are fellow veterans, seniors Kyle Lavoie, Sam Vreeland and Carter Scarrozzo. Helping anchor the Berlin midfield are seniors Daniel Caron and Alex Joslyn. Freshman Evan Hale can play in the back or at midfield.

Up front, the Redcoats will rely on senior forward Armand Cano, junior forward Brajan Cano and versatile senior Jake Haynes to put the ball in the net. Hilbie, Lavoie, Vreeland and Caron are captains. Outlook: Coach Francalangia likes his team’s togetherness, but is concerned his guys will not be able to finish, consistently. Still, Francalangia expects the Redcoats to be a plus-,500 club and to contend for the Central Connecticut Conference South Division crown. The race for the division title should be a tight one. Francalangia said the championship is “up for grabs.” See Preview, next page


Thursday, September 15, 2011 — The Berlin Citizen

Preview Continued from page 18

Girls soccer Coach: Steve Yanosy (10th year, 119-31-8). Assistant: Katie Amenta. Last year: The Lady Redcoats, a 12th seed, were knocked out of the CIAC Class L state tournament in Round 2. The locals rolled up an overall record of 12-5-1. Key losses: Eight lettermen, including four starters. This season: Berlin returned a slew of varsitytested talent, including junior forward Bianca Jacques, who netted 12 goals in 2010. Another offensive threat is senior midfielder Shannon Murphy, a four-year starter. Helping anchor the Lady Redcoat defense are senior Dana Hebert and senior goalie Robyn Riggott, a veteran in net. Berlin’s other key returnees are seniors Emma Johnson (forward), Emily Stickel (forward/midfield), Lisa Andreanna (midfield/defense), Kira Eleveld (midfield) and Olivia Hale (midfield/defense) and junior Catherine Voelpel (midfield).

Outlook: The Lady Redcoats are a senior-heavy team, mixed with some younger talent. Coach Yanosy views that as a positive. However, he concedes the team needs to work on finishing if it is to be a contender.

Girls swimming Coach: Amanda McCarthy (third year). Assistant: Jan Zagorski (diving). Last year: The Lady Redcoats rolled up a mark of 5-5 and finished ninth at the CIAC Class M state meet. Key loss: Shannon Jedrzejczyk. This season: Berlin returned a solid core, highlighted by seniors Kate Piotrowicz (freestyle, butterfly), Briana Cass (freestyle), Taylor Recck (freestyle) and Megan Pitkin (individual medley/butterfly/freestyle), and juniors Joanna Wojtun (individual medley/breaststroke), Katherine Burek (breaststroke) and Leah Pawelczyk (diving). Pawelczyk set the BHS record in diving last year and was a state meet qualifier. Also competing in individual events at the 2010 state meet was Piotrowicz (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle), Cass (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle), Recck (50 freestyle), Pitkin

(200 individual medley), Wojtun (200 individual medley, 100 breaststroke) and Burek (100 breaststroke). Piotrowicz, Cass and Recck will serve as team captains this fall. Freshmen Kelsey Kozikowski, Holly Chirico, Kayla Cervoni and Arian Silas are the Lady Redcoats’ top newcomers. Outlook: With seven returning state meet qualifiers mixing with a strong

freshmen class, Berlin looks tough, and Coach McCarthy is not trying to tamp down expectations. “This team has the depth and talent, and therefore the potential, to be the best swimming and diving team Berlin High School has ever seen,” she said. McCarthy is looking to improve on last year’s record and to get even more girls into the state meet — “a record number.”

The New England Athletic Club in Cromwell is the new home of the BHS girls swim team.

Volleyball Coach: Bob Tarigo (30th year, 400-162). Assistants: Nancy DeBlasio, Jeff Tarigo. Last year: The Lady Redcoats compiled a record of 910 and were knocked out of

Continued from page 19 the CIAC Class L state tournament in the opening round. The locals were an 18th seed. Key losses: Berlin graduated seven players, including four starters. Also, senior Victoria Fagan is out for the season with a back injury. This season: The Lady Redcoats are a senior-heavy team. Back in action are seniors Lia D’Amato (outsidehitter/defense), Rachael Zelek (setter), Brittany Labbadia (outside-hitter/defense), Meghan Long (outside-, middle-hitter), McKenzie Freeland (outside-, middle-hitter), Jessica Naples (server/defense) and Kelly Walsh (outside-hitter). D’Amato and Zelek are team captains. Youngsters expected to make an impact for BHS this year are sophomores Alicia Maule (libero/back-up setter/server) and Callie Veach (server/defense). Outlook: The Lady Redcoats don’t have much height, and several girls will be getting substantial varsity minutes for the first time. Still, Coach Tarigo is optimistic. “We’re not going to have an overpowering team. We have to use our heads at the net,” he said. “As long as we don’t panic, we’ll be okay.” Tarigo has been impressed with his team’s defense, serving, and serve-return skills. The Lady Redcoats are quick, too. If all goes well, Tarigo believes Berlin can finish in the Top 2 in the Central Connecticut Conference South Division and qualify for the postseason.

Cross country Coach: Steve Soucy (third year — boys, 22-10; girls, 239). Assistant: Bob Casey. Last year: The BHS boys ran up a record of 9-6, finished third in the Central Connecticut Conference South Division and 13th at the CIAC Class MM state meet. The BHS girls posted a

mark of 12-3 and tied for second in the CCC South. The Lady Redcoats landed in 10th place in Class MM. Key loss: Shaun Sullivan. This season: On the boys side, Berlin’s top returnees are senior co-captain Will Cavedon and junior Brendan McLarty, who takes over the No. 1 spot vacated by Sullivan. Rounding out the Redcoats’ Top 5 are juniors Matt Kall and co-captain Ryan Kliszewski, and sophomore James Dwyer. The Berlin girls welcome back their No. 1 runner in senior Kaylene Sylvain, a co-captain. Sylvain has paced the Lady Redcoats since her freshman year. Also back is Berlin’s No. 2 harrier, sophomore Brittany Sullivan. Others expected to clock good times are junior co-captain Stefanie Parillo, newcomer, senior Alex Carbonell, an accomplished track and field runner, and freshmen Taylor Lupini and Kristen Madeia. Outlook: On the boys side, the locals have some proven runners up front, but are not deep. Still, Coach Soucy sees his guys turning in a plus-.500 campaign. Expectations are much higher for the Berlin girls. The team is very deep, and in recent runs just 30 seconds separated its Nos. 1 and 10 runners. Soucy said the latest edition of the Lady Redcoats are “by far the most competitive” team he has had at BHS. The Berlin girls are looking to challenge for the CCC South and Class MM titles.

Youth hoop Berlin Basketball Association registration for boys and girls in grades 5 through 8 will take place Thursday, Sept. 15, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Community Center.

Thursday, September 15, 2011 — The Berlin Citizen

Leader Continued from page 14 ballot eligibility and what constitutes violations in regards to voting with that type of ballot. The CEA stated it distributed the ballots due to concerns that many of its members would be out of town on that day. The ballots, along with a letter from Phillip Apruzzese, CEA president, encouraging members to vote, but not advocating for any candidate, was dated Jan. 25. The ballots were printed from the Secretary of the

State’s website. Next to that downloadable application is a warning regarding the use and distribution of absentee ballots which must be mailed with the ballot. A CEA representative realized the mistake of not registering with the town clerks’ offices and contacted the Secretary of the State’s office sometime before Feb. 7. The secretary’s office assisted with contacting the town clerks offices in the relevant districts and advised the CEA to provide a list of all the people receiving the ballots to the town clerks. The 17 towns contacted were: Bridgeport, Farmington,

Madison, West Hartford, New Britain, Essex, Haddam, Deep River, Chester, Guilford, East Haven, Middletown, Stamford, Darien, Middlefield, Meriden, and Cheshire. This aspect of the complaint was dismissed as the information, ultimately, was registered with the town clerks in those towns. The SEEC did not take action on the fact that the CEA did not register with town clerks prior to sending the ballots, since the organization made “considerable efforts” to fix the mistake weeks before a complaint was filed. The SEEC said

that while the respondent (CEA president) should have been more dilligent as the “leader of a sophisticated labor organization”, there was no fraudulent intent. According to the SEEC documents, no attempt was made to address the failure to distribute the absenttee ballot fact sheet and warning. However, it did not find evidence of “bad faith” in this oversight. In its haste to get the letters out, it is likely that the CEA “simply failed to consider its statutory obigations carefully enough.”

BHS Back to School Night

Parents of Berlin High School students are invited to Back to School Night on Monday, Sept. 19 at 6:45 p.m. at the high school. A brief welcome presentation by the principal begins in the Gibney Gym. Parents will then follow their student’s Monday schedule, meeting with classroom teachers.
