The technology education building achieved a certificate of occupancy on Aug. 15, meaning the building is essentially ready for its intended use. There are some final cosmetics that need to be done, such as paint and furniture, but Shugrue said the building is expected to be ready for Aug. 28. The building houses a wood shop, metal

shop rooms, electronics and graphic design lab, and one typical classroom which all teachers will share. Phase two construction will occur during the school year, but Shugrue reassured the BOE that it will not disrupt traffic flow and school operations.

A black bear in a Berlin residential neighborhood, that was said to be aggressive, was shot and killed by a local police officer. Aug. 18. Around 6 p.m. that evening, the Berlin Police Department began to receive phone complaints about a bear in the area of the Chamberlin Highway heading towards High Road. The state of Connecticut called homes in the area and issued a recording that advised residents to say inside and avoid contact. Berlin officers responded to the area to monitor the bear that was traveling through the back yards of houses on the east side of High Road. Cyndy Chanaca, spokesperson for the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, said the 300 pound male black bear was acting aggressively towards a resident near the Little League field adjacent to Griswold Elementary School. The bear was later found at the intersection of Lincoln Street and Mooreland Hill Road where he was shot around 7 p.m., according to Berlin police. The bear displayed aggres-

Over the summer months construction projects began on multiple school buildings in town and with the first day of school just days away on Aug. 28, the Board of Education is concerned about safety and classrooms readiness. During a meeting Aug. 19, the BOE discussed the Berlin High School renovation, the Willard Elementary School roof project and the kindergarten classroom modifications at all three elementary schools. But the discussion was not always positive — BOE President Gary Brochu expressed his frustration and concern for the lack of communication between project and construction managers and the BOE members. Chris Shugrue, project executive for FIP Construction; Carolina Cudemus, senior project manager for Gilbane Building Company; and architect David Stein and interior designer Amanda Cleveland, from Silver Petrucelli Associates, pre-

Teddy bears, more than just a stuffed animal

the power of a stuffed animal: A teddy bear is a friend that brings smiles and hope because it doesn’t judge. Currently, Guerin is working on a partnership with the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center to distribute bears in the emergency rooms and the cancer facilities at no cost to the center. So far Guerin has sold 50 bears. This means he has another 50 bears waiting to be placed in the arms of a child, in need of a friend, once the partnership is finalized. Guerin said when parents visit the Project Kids Give website with their children, they will learn the organization’s mission. Once the

acts with the boy, but he never had physical contact with him. Miller was charged with five counts of risk of injury or impairing the morals of a minor and a single count of criminal attempt to obscenity. He plead not guilty to all charges in July of 2011. The Berlin Police Department then arrested Miller a second time in June of 2012, on three additional charges: two counts of obscenity, possession of child pornography and 10 counts of risk of injury to a minor. After Miller entered a plea bargain in May of this year, the Archdiocese of Hartford issued a statement that said, “We hope that Miller’s plea will give some solace and closure to the minors he violated — and their families.” On Aug. 15, the Archdiocese of Hartford named Sister See Miller / Page 9

Former St. Paul Church priest Michael Miller, who plead guilty in May to possession of child pornography, publishing an obscenity and three counts of risk of injury to a minor, will serve five years in prison. Miller, 43, was sentenced at a New Britain Superior Court Aug. 15 to 20 years in prison, suspended after five, followed by 20 years of probation, according to court documents. Miller is also required to register as a sex offender for 10 years. According to court documents, Miller had inappropriate Facebook conversations with seven underage teenagers and five pornographic videos of children were found on his home computers. Miller ministered to 2,300 regular parish members of St. Paul Catholic Church in

Kensington. He was with St. Paul for f i v e ye a r s when the investigation into his case began. Miller also served Miller as chaplain for the South Kensington Fire Department and had roles with several other youth and adult organizations in town. He will no longer function as a priest, according to the Archdiocese of Hartford. According to an arrest warrant from 2011, a mother noticed her 13-year-old son having what she said was a “very disturbing and inappropriate” conversation with Miller on Facebook. Police confiscated a cell phone and two computers from Miller’s home. Miller told police that he knew the boy was 13 and had offered to perform sex

Kids Give sends a teddy bear to a child in need of a smile. The exchange takes place through partnerships with hospitals and social services. “Teddy bears are the ultimate symbol of friendship, love and comfort,” Guerin said. “That’s what we want kids to have — someone that isn’t going to disappear, someone that they can love and count on.” Over the years, Guerin has served in a number of positions at the New BritainBerlin YMCA and is currently employed as the member service coordinator. In 2009, he began working as an assistant preschool teacher and it is there where he observed

stories are a great way for kids to learn,” Guerin said. “At the YMCA we read stories all day that have those special characters who teach morals and life lessons. When you are able to show the children the actual character (using a stuffed animal) as you read the story, doing different motions and actions, kids seem to be a lot more respective and they seem to learn a lot more because it really is more of a visual tool.” For more information or to purchase Coby the Cub, visit www.projectkidsgive.com.

While working at the New Britain-Berlin YMCA, Mark Guerin said he noticed most children are not motivated or enthusiastic when it comes to volunteering and helping others who are less fortunate. A Berlin resident, Guerin, 20, has been involved in the community and worked closely with the children at the YMCA since 2005. He said an idea sparked one day: teach children the meaning of giving and the power of a smile. From this idea, Project Kids Give was founded in 2012. “My experience helping others changed my life,” said Guerin who is the founder and CEO. “This company strives to help kids make this same discovery — giving feels good.” The goal of teaching children the joy of generosity is accomplished through the purchase of a teddy bear named Coby the Cub. For every Coby purchased, Project

youngsters receive Coby and enjoy their new friend, “they will be reminded that another child who can’t benefit from the same fortunes is also smiling.” “If we start them at a young age just by instilling this idea, yes they are receiving a teddy bear but at the same time they are also giving one, it is a real simple way to show children what it means to give,” Guerin said. “Another child can enjoy the same appreciation of this gift.” Guerin has plans for the future of Project Kids Give. He said he plans on introducing a couple of different stuffed animals and build a story around “Coby’s friends.” Guerin said he is working with the director of the New Britain-Berlin YMCA to write a children’s story about “Coby the Cub and his friends and then possibly get the story published.” “That’s kind of the next avenue I’m looking to go down as the company kind of picks up, because I think children’s

Teachers and administrators ready for first day The Berlin Citizen

Although school construction will continue throughout the district, Superintendent David Erwin said schools will be ready for teachers to set up their classrooms Aug. 26 and 27 and for students to begin learning Aug. 28.

“I’m really excited for this school year,” Erwin said. “It’s always exciting at the end of a summer to welcome students back. It’s always a lot of fun.” Berlin High School has scheduled a freshman orientation for parents and students for Aug. 22,. A welcome back gathering for returning high school students and

their parents is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 26, the same day McGee Middle School will host its incoming sixth grade orientation. Over the summer, two education administrators resigned to begin positions with other school districts. Scott Ratchford, former principal of McGee Middle School of

Veterans attend American warrior Day of Honor Four Berlin World War II and Korean War veterans took part in the recent “American Warrior Day of Honor” in Washington, D.C. Willie D’Amato and Tom “Bud” Holigan, both of East Berlin, with Robert “Butch” Wenzel and Gene Polaske, both of Berlin, were part of the IX American Warrior Flight on the April 27 visit to the World War II, Navy, Korean War, Marine Corp and Air Force Memorials in Washington, D.C. Over 100 veterans from all over the country were flown to Washington for the day, at no cost to them. Willie D’Amato served in the U.S. Navy from June 20, 1944 to May 20, 1946 on the USS J.D. Yeager and the USS Merrimack; Thomas “Bud” Holigan served in the U.S. Navy from March 1943 to March 1946 on the USS Wichita; Gene Polaske served in the U.S. Marine Corp from July 1945 to July 1949 as part of the China - 1st Division H&S Co 1st M.T. BN and was also assigned to the 6th Task Fleet and was stationed at Quantico, Va., from August 1950 to August 1951 and Butsh Wenzel served in the U.S. Navy from June 1951 to June 1955 on the USS Kula Gulf. The American Warrior is a non-profit organization who’s mission is “Remembering and honoring heroes.” They plan two flights a year to Washington, D.C. honoring WWII and Korean Veterans.

Janet Parlato, former assistant principal of Berlin High School who has served the school district for 20 years, has accepted a position as director of curriculum, instruction and assessment for the Watertown public schools. “I appreciate the work that Scott has done for the school district, and the level of achievement at McGee has remained quite positive,” Erwin said. “Janet has been an exceptionally good

teacher who was a former Teacher of the Year and an assistant principal who has provided a lot of wisdom and insight to her colleagues and staff. We will miss Janet for sure.” Until a permanent position for McGee is filled, an interim principal, Arnold Frank, Ph.D., will oversee operations at the middle school. “Arnold has a wonderful reputation,” Erwin said. “Dr. Frank has extensive and impressive credentials.

Bear

DEEP, said it is only a matter of time before local towns like Berlin start seeing more and more bears. DEEP does not know exactly how many bears are in the state. Its official statements put the population between 500 and 1,000. A growing population means more interactions between bears and humans. DEEP encourages residents not to feed bears. Dwayne Gardner, spokesman for DEEP, said if bears get their food from human sources, they lose their fear of people and become aggressive. Humans can unintentionally feed bears by leaving out trash, bird feeders or food for domestic animals. For more information on how to live with bears, visit DEEP’s website at www. ct.gov/deep. Reporter Daniel Jackson contributed to this report.

havior, in a residential neighborhood, the sergeant shot the bear. DEEP was not notified about the bear until after the animal was shot, according to Chanaca. When environmental conservation police arrived on scene, the bear was pronounced dead. “If the Berlin police officer believed the bear was threatening his life or public safety, as he stated in his police report, he was justified in shooting the bear,” Chanaca said. The bear is being examined by DEEP wildlife biologists to determine the bear’s condition. They are conducting what is called a necropsy, which is an autopsy of an animal, to conclude whether or not the bear had any health issues that may have played a role in its aggressive behavior. A few days prior to this incident a black bear was spotted on Savage Hill Road on Aug. 10, according to Berlin police. Jason Hawley, a biologist who studies bears for

Local bodybuilder 25 years in the making Most people expect that by the age of 40 their best days of being physically fit may be behind them, but not for a Berlin resident bodybuilder named Graham Seekamp. At age 43, he is in the best

shape of his life and recently won the Masters Division of the Mr. Connecticut Bodybuilding Contest held June 22, at the Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven. The Masters Division is for competitors over 40. Seekamp has been lifting weights and competing in bodybuilding events since 1985, at the age of 15. Mike Katz, a former Mr. Universe who also lives in Connecticut and is famous for competing with Arnold Schwarzenegger, inspired Seekamp and helped him train for his first contest when he was just 17. Now, as a result of his recent win, Seekamp holds a state title as Masters Division Mr. Connecticut. “It took a lot of dedication and perseverance but I did it the right way, through training hard and eating right,” Seekamp said. Besides being a state champion, Seekamp is a fifth grade teacher at Griswold Elementary School, where he has taught for the last 16 years. He uses his knowledge and love of fitness to help his students to embrace a healthy and fit lifestyle. Seekamp teaches his students how to do various exercises, to read food labels

and to get excited about staying in shape. It is not uncommon for him to exercise with his class between lessons. Seekamp said when he runs into former students around town “they always say they have fond memories” of the weekly exercise regimens in his class. Seekamp often encounters former students at the local Powerhouse Gym in Berlin, where he trains and has been employed as a personal trainer for the last 15 years. “I would be here anyway, whether I was getting paid or not,” he said about his second job. Seekamp has used his passion for bodybuilding to help others. “I love working out and competing in bodybuilding and I can use many of the principles to help my clients achieve their

fitness goals,” he said. Seekamp believes that as a teacher and a personal trainer, he can help others to believe in themselves, set and attain goals and to reap the benefits of physical fitness in an era where obesity is at epidemic levels. In his recent victory,

Seekamp — at a bodyweight of 167 pounds — was a lightweight competitor who was able to out muscle a heavyweight contender of 225 pounds to gain the Masters Division title of Mr. Connecticut. Submitted by the Powerhouse Gym in Berlin.

As Associate Director of Admissions for Tunxis Community Colleg e, Alison McCarthy has a frontrow seat on incoming students entering the school in Farmington. Most people would be surprised how diverse the student body is, she said. While 37 percent of the students come from New Britain or Bristol, the rest come from 167 other towns in the state, including Berlin, Southington and Plainville. The student body is made up of not only traditional college-aged students, but youth as young as 11 to adult learners as old as 80. To her, the community college system is about the community making education accessible, a place to begin. “As my former boss would say: ‘If we were a religious school, our name would be Our Lady of Perpetual Chances,’” McCarthy said. Over the summer months, McCarthy’s office is helping students, who have applied at Tunxis, prepare for the first day of the Fall 2013 semester. She has been calling students to finalize the details and to ask if they are all set or if they need help. She does not know how many students will attend Tunxis in the fall — that will become known later — however, 4,764 students went to Tunxis last fall, an enrollment record. Tunxis’ website states that it offers 35 associates degrees and 25 certificates. It is the only public college in Connecticut to offer a degree in dental hygiene. The program draws students from across the state. McCarthy said Tunxis is a

who were present at the meeting, said parents will be given a tour, on Aug. 22 and 26, to view the corridors and safety measures that have been put in place. In other school construction, five fifth grade classrooms at the elementary schools were modified over the summer with bathrooms and cubbies, among other fixtures, to be transformed into kindergarten classrooms. Willard and Hubbard both have two additional rooms while Griswold gains one. Although Director of Business Operations Roman Czuchta said construction work is scheduled to be “near completion by this Friday,” he said there is still work that will continue after hours once school begins, such as finishing the closet spaces. Brochu asked why construction is not 100 percent complete at this point. “We did all the approval, we had the 1 percent fund, we had it all ready to go,” Brochu said. “How did we get to the point where we are cutting it days before the start of school?” Czuchta said construction had to work around summer activities held at the elemen-

There already is a temporary chain link fence in place to separate the construction zone.” The lower level of the high school is currently under construction, but Shugrue said they are prepared for students to come back. “There is a clear demarcation between the construction zone and the occupied area. Small six foot wide temporary corridors have been set up for student to pass through and we will be working on the other side,” Schugrue said, adding that there are temporary corridors also set up on the second floor.

tary schools and asbestos removal. For retrofitting the one additional kindergarten classroom at Griswold, construction crews were not able to access the building until August because of the abatement process — the building had to be cleared before access was granted. Modifications for two additional kindergarten classrooms at Hubbard are near completion, “except for some cosmetic work,” Czuchta said. “Right now that’s not a priority; that work can be done after hours,” he added. “We have to pick our fights at this point and try to get as much done as possible in the large areas which are Willard and Griswold.” At Griswold, there was a miscommunication about the floor tiles that were replaced. Superintendent David Erwin and Czuchta said colors do not match up and patch work needs to be done. “If you were to walk into Griswold right now it’s a disaster area,” Czuchta said. “I don’t understand what the thought process of that was, but I was informed that those See Construction / Page 9

Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you. Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent. A Matter of Balance is de-

KENSINGTON - Wilbert R. “Bill” Veley, 88, of Kensington, husband of Beverly Veley, passed away Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, at his home surrounded by his family. A New Britain native and former resident, he lived in Kensington for the past 60 years. A World War II U.S. Army veteran, he served in the Pacific Theatre. A graduate of Moody’s Business school, Bill was employed at Rowland products in Kensington for 20 years, then in executive sales at Delmar Products Inc., in Kensington for 20 years. He later worked at Masecraft Supply in sales and as vice president for 20 years before his retirement. He was a member of the First Lutheran Church in New Britain and the Berlin American Legion Post. He loved the City of New Britain, and especially enjoyed sharing memories of “past times” there, reminiscing often about good times at the Strand, Arch Street, the Wise Owl, and the Bowl-a-Rink. Bill loved to travel and cherished his family vacations at Point o’ Woods, Block Island, and Wildwood. Besides his wife, Beverly, he leaves two sons, Scott Veley and his wife, Joan, of Kensington, and Jaye Veley and his wife, Stacy, of Wethersfield; a sister, Lynn Blankenburg, of Southington; two grandsons, Jayson and Tate Veley, both of Wethersfield; several nieces and nephews. Bill was predeceased by a sister, Gladys Veley. The family would like to thank the Hartford VNA/hospice and especially Sarah for all her personalized care. Funeral services are Thursday 10 a.m. at First Lutheran Church, 77 Franklin Square, New Britain. Burial with military honors will follow in Fairview Cemetery. Calling hours took place at Carlson Funeral Home, 45 Franklin Square, New Britain. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Lutheran Church Memorial Fund or to the Berlin American Legion Post, 154 Porters Pass, Kensington, CT 06037.

WINDSOR - Ellsworth Harry (Elly) Kahrmann, 84, of Windsor, formerly of New Britain, passed away Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013, at Wintonbury Care Center, in Bloomfield, with his family by his side. He leaves his devoted and loving wife, of 58 years, Vivian Lavaughn (Ellerbee) Kahrmann — his “Sweet Georgia Peach.” Elly was born, Jan. 20,1929, in Middletown, son of the late Arthur and Irene (Cooley) Kahrmann, and grew up in a very large family. He graduated from New Britain High School, 1947, served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, and was employed at Stanley Tools, Pratt & Whitney and Fafnir Bearings before his retirement. During his younger life he had a beautiful singing voice, could whistle any song as sweet as a bird, and was a very good dancer. He was an avid fan of the New York Mets and found great pleasure in researching and collecting the history of his ancestry to share with family, friends and future generations. Besides his wife, Elly is survived by three sons and two daughters-in-law, Harold Kahrmann and Debra Garrity, of Windsor, Jeffrey and Eileen Kahrmann, of Minnesota, Darryl and Patricia Kahrmann, of New Britain; two daughters and a son-in-law, Deborah and Gregory Piryk, of Berlin, and Karen Kahrmann, of Wethersfield; three brothers and two sisters-in-law, Arthur and Helen Kahrmann, of Maine, Lawrence Kahrmann, of Georgia, Robert and Shirley Kahrmann, of Vermont; a sister and brother-in-law, Joyce and Lawrence Frigault, of New York; three sisters-in-law and a brother-in-law, Edna Kahrmann, of Berlin, Francis Ellerbee, of Georgia, Houston and Jeanelle Ham, of Florida; and seven grandchildren, Christopher, Matthew and David Piryk, Katherine Reardon and her husband, Patrick, Chelsey, Kimberly, and Steven Kahrmann; one great-grandchild, Cameron Mazako; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he is also predeceased by his two brothers, Leland and Kenneth Kahrmann; his three sisters, Ada Goodrich, May Whitehead, and Shirley Kahrmann; and several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. A graveside service, with full military honors, was held on Thursday, Aug. 15, in Maple Cemetery, Berlin, with the Rev. Charlene Corbett, Associate Pastor of The First Church in Windsor, officiating. Porter’s Funeral Home, 111 Chamberlain Highway, Berlin was entrusted with the arrangements.

Back-to-school traffic T h e B e rl i n P o l i c e Department advises motorists to keep watchful eye out for children in the roadways as the new school year begins. Watch for school buses and children waiting at bus stops or walking to school. Obey all posted traffic controls and the directions of school crossing guards on Grove Street in East Berlin and Norton Road in Berlin. Speed limits in the areas of all schools will be strictly enforced with the aid of both radar and laser. The speed limit in a school zone is 25 MPH and is strictly enforced with a minimum fine of $182. Passing a standing school bus with red lights and stop sign out will also be strictly enforced with a $465 infraction for the first offense. At Berlin High School, there are two designated student pick-up and dropoff areas. One pick-up/ drop-off area is located inside the student parking lot near the glass doors that lead to the gym. The second is on the east bound side of Patterson Way directly opposite the teacher’s parking lot, this area is posted with “student drop-off” signs. The remainder of Patterson Way is posted “no parking” on both

The “no parking” areas will be strictly enforced for parking violations of Connecticut law and violators will be issued a state infraction in the amount of $92. Note: A parked vehicle is defined in Connecticut law as a motor vehicle in a stationary position within the limits of a public highway. Sitting in a stopped vehicle waiting to pick up a student falls under this definition. Drivers should also be aware of the ongoing construction activity related to the high school renovation. Construction personnel and equipment are active in the area across the street and in the student parking areas. Berlin High School students should also be mindful of the various laws that pertain to them. There are several laws that can result in a 30 or 60 day suspension of driving privileges. Parents are advised to utilize the designated pick-up and dropoff points inside the school parking areas at McGee Middle School and Griswold Elementary School.

Ten steps to stop and prevent bullying Whether you are a parent, an educator, or a concerned friend of the family, there are 10 steps you can take to stop and prevent bullying, courtesy of the National Education Association. Pay attention. There are many warning signs that may point to a bullying problem, such as unexplained injuries, lost or destroyed personal items, changes in eating habits, and avoidance of school or other social situations. However, every student may not exhibit warning signs, or may go to great lengths to hide it. This is where paying attention is most valuable. Engage students on a daily basis and ask open-ended questions that encourage conversation. Don’t ignore it. Never assume that a situation is harmless teasing. Different students have different levels of coping; what may be considered teasing to one may be humiliating and devastating to another. Whenever a student feels threatened in any way, take it seriously, and assure the student that you are there for them and will help. When you see something – do something. Intervene as soon as you even think there may be a problem between students. Don’t brush it off as “kids are just being kids. They’ll get over it.” Some never do, and it affects them for a lifetime. All questionable behavior should be addressed immediately to keep a situation from escalating. Summon other adults if you deem the situation may get out of hand. Be sure to always refer to your school’s anti-bullying policy. Remain calm. When you intervene, refuse to argue with either student. Model the respectful behavior you expect from the students. First make sure everyone is safe and that no one needs immediate medical attention. Reassure the students involved, as well as the bystanders. Explain to them what needs to happen next – bystanders go on to their expected destination while the students involved should be taken separately to a safe

place. Deal with students individually. Don’t attempt to sort out the facts while everyone is present, don’t allow the students involved to talk with one another, and don’t ask bystanders to tell what they saw in front of others. Instead, talk with the individuals involved – including bystanders – on a one-on-one basis. This way, everyone will be able to tell their side of the story without worrying about what others may think or say. Don’t make the students involved apologize and/or shake hands on the spot. Label the behavior as bullying. Explain that you take this type of behavior very seriously and that you plan to get to the bottom of it before you determine what should be done next and any resulting consequences based on your school’s anti-bullying policy. This empowers the bullied child – and the bystanders – to feel that someone will finally listen to their concerns and be fair about outcomes. Hold bystanders accountable. Bystanders provide bullies an audience, and often actually encourage bullying. Explain that this type of behavior is wrong, will not be tolerated, and that they also have a right and

a responsibility to stop bullying. Identify yourself as a caring adult that they can always approach if they are being bullied and/or see or suspect bullying. Listen and don’t prejudge. It is very possible that the person you suspect to be the bully may actually be a bullied student retaliating or a “bully’s” cry for help. It may also be the result of an undiagnosed medical, emotional or psychological issue. Rather than make any assumptions, listen to each child with an open mind. Get appropriate professional help. Be careful not to give any advice beyond your level of expertise. Rather than make any assumptions, if you deem there are any underlying and/or unsolved issues, refer the student to a nurse, counselor, school psychologist, social worker, or other appropriate professional. Become trained to handle bullying situations. If you work with students in any capacity, it is important to learn the proper ways to address bullying. Visit www. nea.org/bullyfree for information and resources. You can also take the pledge to stop bullying, as well as learn how to create a Bully Free program in your school and/ or community.

Press Release Statewide test results released last week reflect a slight improvement in 10th grade test scores, but elementary and middle school student scores declined compared to the previous year. Large student achievement gaps persist and in some cases grew. These findings are part of Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now’s annual analysis of results from the Connecticut Mastery Test, administered to elementary and middle school students in 3rd through 8th grade, and the Connecticut Academic Performance Test results, administered to 10th graders. Results for 2013 were released Aug. 13 by the State Department of Education. ConnCAN uses the “goal” standard on the CMT and CAPT to analyze results, because it is the state’s best estimate of students meeting or exceeding grade level expectations. According to the State Department of Education, a student scoring at the “goal” level has the knowledge, skills and critical thinking abilities that are “reasonable to expect of students” within their grade level. “This year’s test results include some bright spots, as well as some bleak ones,” said

crease in the percent of students at goal on CAPT (black +0.7 percentage points; Latino +0.9 percentage points) than their white peers (+2.1 percentage points), the achievement gap grew for both black and Latino 10th graders (black 43.8 percentage point gap; Latino 40.0 percentage point gap). – Narrowing achievement gap for elementary and middle schoolers: The percent of students at goal on the CMT decreased across the board. The percent of black and Latino students at goal decreased less than that of white students (black -1.4 percentage points; Latino -1.6 percentage points, white -1.9 percentage points), which resulted in a narrowing of the achievement gap for both black and Latino elementary and middle schoolers. However, large gaps persist: black 35.6 percentage point gap; Latino 34.6 percentage point gap. – At best, it will take decades to close achievement gap: At the current rate, it will take decades for the CMT achievement gap to close (black 64.3 years; Latino 46.1 years; low-income 75.8 years). What’s worse, on CAPT, the achievement gap is growing except for Latino students. At the current rate it will take 600.4 years to close the

Jennifer Alexander, chief executive officer for ConnCAN. “Above all else, one thing is clear: We need to do better for our kids to ensure that they are prepared for college and careers. Moving forward, we have a lot of work to do in order to ensure every single child in Connecticut has access to a high quality education regardless of race, wealth, or zip code.” Additional key findings from the 2013 CAPT and CMT results include: – Across the board declines in elementary and middle school performance: Every student group analyzed by ConnCAN showed a decline in the percent of students at goal. The largest CMT declines were seen by English language learners (-2.9 percentage points), white students (-1.9 percentage points), and non-low income students (-1.9 percentage points). – Gains shown by all 10th grade student groups: The percent of students at goal on the CAPT increased across the board. The largest gains were made by white students (+2.1 percentage points), non-low income students (+1.6 percentage points), and non-English language learners (+1.4 percentage points). – Achievement gap grows for black and Latino 10th graders: With a smaller in-

pretrial competency monitor. He uses Spanish on the job. If a patient is admitted to Whiting whose primary language is Spanish, he can speak to them in the language without an interpreter. “That’s the beauty of the community college,” Chase said. “The adjunct professors are people who usually work in the field.” McCarthy said the full-time professors at Tunxis have offices and office hours, but adjunct professors bring unique perspectives and new ways of learning. Before teaching Spanish, Chase worked for 10 years as a minister in the Salvation Army. He said that experience carried over to his classroom. “I think of each student as an individual that needs unique attention,” he said. He said the small classroom size at Tunxis allows him to focus on the needs of students. Chase speaks the language, writes examples on the board and tries to reach different learning styles. He even integrates improv theater into his class time, giving students a chance to speak spontaneously in the language. He’s seen many kinds of individuals pass through his classroom: children of immigrants who learn the language to speak to grandparents and travelers who have been on vacation, met a person, fell in love and came back to the See Tunxis / Page 24

Weightlifter Bielomyza sets four world records By Nate Brown The Berlin Citizen

It’s amazing what a determined person can accomplish. Drew Bielomyza knows a little something about that. A couple weeks ago, Bielomyza was an unassuming executive level manager for BJs Wholesale Club in Stratford. Now he is a four-time world record-holder in weightlifting. “I found the competition that they were holding and just kind of threw my hat in the ring. About six weeks ago I just decided I’m gonna train and see how I can do and perform. And I did relatively well, I guess,” said Bielomyza, with a chuckle. A Berlin native, Bielomyza set the bar at the Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate New York State Championship, held Aug. 10 in Rochester. His performance in the 275 Raw Modern Submaster class landed him the world records for his lifts in the squat, bench press, and dead lift exercises, as well as for total weight lifted. Incredibly, this was the first competitive powerlifting competition he had ever entered.

“About six weeks ago I just decided I’m gonna train and see how I can do and perform. And I did relatively well, I guess,” said Drew Bielomyza, a BHS alumnus Bielomyza, a 1993 graduate of Berlin High School, took up weightlifting in 1989 as a way to build muscle for his involvement in athletics. But he didn’t get serious about weightlifting until a football injury during his sophomore year at Gannon University forced him to walk away from the gridiron. “I pretty much broke my elbow cap completely off,” he explained. “I joined a local gym because I wanted to get back in shape, but didn’t really feel comfortable being around my former teammates being that I wasn’t able to play, or couldn’t play, any more.” Throughout the years, Bielomyza took part in bodybuilding and Strongman events. So upon hearing about the RPS competitions, he became intrigued. He went to the Battle of Champions event in Hartford as a spec-

tator, and was amazed by the order and efficiency of the competition, as well as the hospitality competitors received. The rest, as they say, is history. Bielomyza began his day at the RPS New York State Championship with a low weight, by his standards, of 500 pounds on the squat. After lifting that with ease, he cruised to set the world records with weights of 580 pounds for squat, 350 pounds for bench press, 590 pounds for dead lift, and 1,520 pounds total. “My 580 pound lift was actually smoother than my opening lift of 500. I think the nerves were out of the way by that point,” he said. “Once I hit that and knocked the first record off the books, the rest of the competition was an easy walk in the park because I got all of the nerves out of the way. So then it was just a matter of having fun and going out and doing stuff that I’ve been doing for 20 years. It got a lot more enjoyable at that point.” T h e n e w wo r l d r e cord-holder doesn’t plan on having a sophomore slump. See Bielomyza / Page 26

First stop on road trip: Legion World Series By Jim Bransfield Special to The Citizen

SHELBY, N.C. -- My first stop on my August baseball adventure was the American Legion Baseball World Series here in southwestern North Carolina. Boys and girls, this is the best site ever for a Legion World Series. The stadium, which seats 6,000, is professional quality: box seats, reserved seats, bleacher seats. It has an expansive press box, TV facilities, brand new concession stand, new souvenir building and a headquarters building for the National Legion staff. There is a huge plaza on third base high above the field that serves as a place for various vendors and fans wander among the booths much like a Fanfest at big time venues. The entrance to the stadium, just completed at a cost of two million bucks, is the Plaza of Champions, a huge, ornate

entrance plaza, complete with circular drive. The organizers run golf cart shuttles to bring fans from the parking lots to the front gate and, in keeping with the culture here -- and it is a culture shock for a city boy like me from the Northeast -I rode a small train of carts pulled by a tractor to get to my car one night. I can adapt. Branford was eliminated in two games, but was competitive. The state and regional champions lost opening day to Wilmington, N.C., a team littered with Division I college players, 5-0. Ben Criscuolo, the star pitcher for Xavier High, took the loss. On day two, Petaluma, Calif. held on to beat Branford 6-3. It was a 4-3 game into the bottom of the fifth when Petaluma mounted a two-out rally to up the lead to three runs. Game, set, match. “We were competitive; we did as well as we could,” said Branford coach Rich Balzano. “I was disappointed that we didn’t play better defensively. That is not like us.”

Branford was clearly not in the class of Wilmington, Brooklawn, N.J., or Gonzalez, La. But Balzano’s club was on par with the others. Just didn’t get a big hit or make a big play. Fans who attended the regional and saw Branford second baseman Mike Funaro get hit in the head by a pitch in the regional, will be pleased to know that he played every inning of every game in the World Series. Shelby is tucked away in the SW corner of North Carolina, 10 miles from South Carolina and about 100 miles from Kentucky. It’s the real South, folks. One of the items at the concession stand is something called livermush. Nope, went nowhere near it. And while the ballpark food is otherwise very good, the hot dogs are a disaster. Make the ones at Fenway seem almost gourmet. And yeah, the southern drawls get to you after a while. Well, they got to me, y’all. See Legion / Page 26

more spectacular was that Connecticut Legion Baseball Director Craig Zimmerman picked up the tab. I love free. A nice touch was that after every time a team was eliminated, the Legion held a ceremony, called each kid by name, and hanged a medal commemorating their World Series appearance around their neck. Very nice. The one thing about the tournament that is a bit disconcerting is the announced attendance. It’s a joke. This tourney draws very well. Branford played before 5,500 the first night and 2,500 on day two. But the Legion announced atten-

The military presence here is also overwhelming. I get it’s the American Legion, but surrounding the entrance plaza were two tanks, Humvees, and other assorted weaponry and material made the place seem like a scene out of any war you want to pick. The food here is, well, kind of limited. Ruby Tuesday is the big time restaurant, but we found a wonderful place out of town where the food was spectacular. What made it even

dance opening day at 26,000 which is absurd. But it turns out the local folks counted everyone twice. All the seats for the tourney are sold. So every day begins with 5,600 paid. But rather than say it’s that for a doubleheader -- which is one admission -- they are saying that the crowd is 5,600 for game one and 5,600 for game two, even though it was one admission. The real attendance for day one was 13,000 (including walkups), not 26,000. But they blithely announce 26,000, proclaiming new attendance records when it is about as phony as it gets. North Carolina creative accounting, I guess.

Still, it’s a wonderful venue and the baseball is terrific. I had a great time here with Zimmerman, and friends Dave Greenleaf and Paul LaFleur of Bristol, regulars at World Series. Time to see Mickey and Minnie for a few days, and catch the Rays, Yankees, Braves, Indians, Nationals -- what a disaster the Nats are -- and the Mets as I bounce down, then up the east coast. I’ll be sure to tell you all about it. Jim Bransfield is a longtime contributor to RecordJournal weekly publications.

He is already thinking about his next RPS competition, where he hopes to set more records in another weight class. “I figure that now I have all the records in the 275-pound weight class, for me to drop another 20 pounds to take a shot at all the 242 records is going to be my venture,” said Bielomyza, who hopes to compete in the RPS North American National Championship in January in Secaucus, New Jersey.

Opinion

Malloy lauds new homeowner protections Press Release Gov. Dannel P. Malloy recently joined the state legislature’s Banks Committee co-chairmen State Sen. Carlo Leone (D-Stamford) and State Rep. William Tong (D-Stamford) and a group of housing advocates at a ceremonial bill signing in Stamford to highlight the passage of a new state law that increases protections for homeowners facing foreclosure while streamlining the foreclosure mediation process at the same time. “Access to a stable housing market is a major driver of economic growth and helps neighborhoods thrive and flourish,” Malloy said. “We need to do everything we can

to ensure that homeowners facing foreclosure get fair and honest treatment – this new law holds banks accountable for their actions throughout the process. Everyone involved benefits when people who can afford to stay in their house are allowed to do so.” Connecticut’s five-yearold foreclosure mediation program brings homeowners and lenders together with an impartial judicial branch mediator to try and work out a mutually beneficial agreement to address outstanding mortgage payments and avoid foreclosure. The new law, Public Act 13136, requires all parties participating in the Foreclosure Mediation Program to mediate in good faith and with-

Letters to the Editor Unpleasant exercise

To the editor: On Tuesday, Aug. 6, at approximately 1 p.m., I was heading east on Norton Road, at the stop sign at the intersection with Four Rod Road. I’ve often wondered why Berlin’s lovely little park behind Stop and Shop isn’t visited more often. We never see anyone walking around the pathways. Recently, my husband and I decided to take a walk around the park. I found my answer: the new sidewalks are covered in goose feces. Wilma Cogliantry Berlin

out delay; mediators have an objective reporting requirement to track the actions and behavior of all parties in mediation and make for smarter refinements of the program in future years. Public Act 13-136 brings to the state for the first time, a fast-track foreclosure process to deal with blight caused by abandoned homes by letting the banks take ownership and sell these properties faster. “The collapse of the housing market pushed countless families to the brink of foreclosure, and many are still fighting to keep their homes. Connecticut’s foreclosure mediation program has helped thousands to keep their homes, but we have also seen some mediations held up due to unnecessary delays,” Leone said. “This legislation will streamline the mediation process to make it work better for struggling homeowners, and I thank Governor Malloy for his leadership in bringing it forward.” “One of my top priorities as the House chairman of the Banks Committee has been to help homeowners facing foreclosure – people suffering through no fault of their own because of the hard times brought about by the recession,” Tong said. “I am thrilled that Governor Malloy See Malloy / Page 29

Commentary

Good-bye summer, hello classroom As the long summer days of leisure turn to back-toschool pursuits, there’s no better time to enjoy a bit of wit and wisdom about the First Day of School. Below, a variety of observers weigh in on the topic with remarks that are at turns funny, insightful, sarcastic or cynical — but which, for the most part, show a keen understanding of the complexities and conflicting emotions that surround our traditional experiences with education. (With help from a compilation of quotes found at the quotegarden.com). – The editors. Summer ends Being a child at home alone in the summer is a high-risk occupation. If you call your mother at work 13 times an hour, she can hurt you. – Erma Bombeck Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken. – Bill Dodds Holidays are enticing

only for the first week or so. After that, it is no longer such a novelty to rise late and have little to do. – Margaret Laurence Something to think about As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools.– Author Unknown A professor is someone who talks in someone else’s sleep. – W.H. Auden It doesn’t make much difference what you study, as long as you don’t like it. – Finley Peter Dunne You can get all A’s and still flunk life. – Walker Percy I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework. – Lily Tomlin as “Edith Ann” Often, when I am reading a good book, I stop and thank my teacher.

pushed for this legislation. The economy is improving but many homeowners are still trying to cope with difficult financial situations and need help. We must keep looking for new ways to help them and make sure they are treated fairly.” The law lays out specific requirements for both lenders and borrowers participating in mediation: – Lenders must provide the borrower with a complete account history of their mortgage, along with other related information. – Borrowers must assemble and provide a complete financial package to the lender at the beginning of the mediation period and in connection with requests for a foreclosure alternatives. – Th e newly- d e f i n e d “Objectives of the Mediation Program” are to determine whether parties can reach an agreement to avoid foreclosure, or, failing that, to expedite the foreclosure in a manner acceptable to the parties. The “ability to mediate” means that the parties must be willing and able to participate in the mediation process in good faith without unreasonable delay. – Lenders and their counsel must be familiar with the borrower’s loan file, available options for alternatives, and the history of prior mediation sessions, as reflected in the mediator’s reports.

Victor Hugo Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire. – William Butler Yeats Different perspectives You send your child to the schoolmaster, but ‘tis the schoolboys who educate him. – Ralph Waldo Emerson Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. – John Dewey The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book. – Author Unknown What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. – George Bernard Shaw Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. – The role of the court-appointed judicial branch mediator is also expanded to require objective reporting on the parties’ conduct following each mediation session. The court may impose sanctions for anyone who acts contrary to the program’s objectives or is unable to mediate. This includes fines, awarding attorney’s fees, and termination of the mediation. A new, five-week pre-mediation process has also been created, which will take place before participating borrowers and lenders first meet. During this time, the judicial branch mediator and the homeowner will meet to discuss the homeowner’s options, and ensure their required paperwork is in order. The mediation period now ends after three mediation sessions or seven months, whichever is earlier. At the request of the mediator or any party to the mediation, one additional session may be allowed by the court per request. In addition to the bill signing, Malloy also encouraged residents seeking assistance to attend the state’s next mortgage assistance event on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Connecticut C o nve n t i o n C e n t e r i n Hartford. The event, sponsored by Attorney General George Jepsen and the State Department of Banking, will be the sixth in a series of recent events held in locations throughout the state that have assisted more than 4,000 borrowers. –governorct.gov

states to learn the language. David England, spokesman for Tunxis, said the college has experienced budget cuts over the last few years. In response, it has cut back on library hours, hired more adjunct professors and has reduced its personnel. The college, England said, needs more people in student services to counsel students who arrive and are not prepared for the demands of college. In addition to the traditional classes held at its Farmington campus, Tunxis offers online courses, workforce training and noncredit classes. England said the college started expanding. It built a library and a new building which holds labs and new classrooms. In late August, it will unveil a 56,000 square-foot building with more lab space and 19 new classrooms. “We have classes scheduled for the fall in that building,” he said.
