Cemetery Committee discouraged due to funding By Daniel Jackson Special to The Citizen The cemetery committee seems to be dying. The discouraged committee members are tired of months of planning only to do nothing because they do not have money to accomplish their goal of preserving the historical cemeteries in town. Chairman Ronald Lindgren said “One of the members called me and asked to disband.” Minutes of the committee’s April meeting state: “Members have been attending monthly meetings and touring the cemeteries and making plans to preserve our cemeteries but the lack of funding leaves the committee with no means to accomplish our duties.” The town did not fund the committee in the last budget, passing it over for

more pressing needs. “It’s us and an $8 million money need and the money is not out there,” Lindgren said. “Everyone knows that the economy is really bad. Our hands are tied. We don’t even have enough money to buy stamps.” Town Manager Denise McNair said “Most boards don’t have funds. Money is not the only answer. Money is a help, but to get anything done, you need the people. And this is somewhat of a specialized need.” The committee was established in 2008 to address the dozen or so decaying town-owned cemeteries. The town delegated the newly formed cemetery committee the job “to preserve, maintain, protect and oversee the cemeteries in the Town of Berlin.” Preserving the cemeterSee Cemetery, page 28

Search dog Ricky helps find lost and missing persons By Daniel Jackson Special to The Citizen

To understand a dog’s capability at recognizing scent, Joanne Pigott of Berlin, a search and rescue dog handler, compares it to human sight. “If I showed you a picture of my grandchildren

and I told you to study that picture for five minutes, and then I showed you a bunch of children and asked you to pick out the children you just studied, you would be able to do it. That is the same picture a dog gets with smell.” That’s why Joanne Pigott has been able to train her

dog, Ricky, to search for missing persons; possibly someone who is dead, possibly underwater or — if all goes well — alive and well.

She hasn’t done this alone. Pigott belongs to a statewide organization called Connecticut Canine Search and Rescue, a volunteer organi-

zation with members donating their dogs and time to assist fire departments and po-

The Berlin Memorial Funeral Home, 96 Main Street, Kensington, CT. was in charge of arrangements.

Anna Talbot Anna Martha (Preskanis) Talbot, of Kensington, died July 28, 2010 just before her 86th birthday. Born in Terryville, July 29, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Vincent and Anna (Swicklas) Preskienis. As a teenager, she moved with her family to New Britain where she met Oral Arthur Talbot, her loving and devoted husband of 66 years. At the age of 20, she worked for Rapheal’s department store where she learned to be a skillful seamstress. During World War II she was employed by Landers, Ferry and Clark where

she was proud of her work in support of the war effort. After raising her family, she worked as a proofreader for the New Britain Herald and followed by a position as a clerk in the Fingerprint Department of the Connecticut State Police offices in Meriden. They raised their family in New Britain before moving to Kensington in 1970 where they became members of St. Paul Church. Along with her husband, Oral, she is survived by three sons and two daughters, Faith Pautzsch and her husband Wolfgang of Boonville, N.Y., Bud Talbot and his wife Grace of Kensington, Mark Talbot and his wife Marisa of Duluth, Ga., Chris Talbot and his wife Lillian of Kensington, and Hope Francis and her husband James of Folsom, Calif.

Anna was an exercise buff who loved swimming and taking daily walks around her Kensington neighborhood where she loved to stop and talk to neighbors. She also loved photography, sewing and tailoring, gardening, camping throughout the Northeast and Canada, healthy cooking and ballroom dancing. Her family will miss her loving devotion and her witty sense of humor. Services were held Aug. 2, 2010 with a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Paul

Dog bit by bat spurs rabies warning During the month of July, two bats collected within the boundaries of the Central Connecticut Health District tested positive for rabies, according to local officials. One rabid bat was found in Berlin, and the other in Newington. No human cases have occurred. Animal Control Officer Jan Lund reports that a bat, determined to be rabid, bit a small dog on the face July 24. The dog is under quarrantine for 45 days. Officials said it’s important to remember that any mammal can get rabies, whether wild or domesticated. In the United States, the most common wild animals that carry rabies are raccoons, skunks, bats, foxes, and coyotes. However, cats, dogs, and cattle also are susceptible to the virus. Rabies is a disease that attacks the nervous system. It is usually transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal into an open wound or the mucous membranes of the eyes or mouth of an uninfected person or animal. The most common mode of transmission of the rabies virus to people is through the bite of an infected animal. Handling a rabid animal, or coming into contact with its blood, urine, or feces, does not result in transmission of the dis-

ease. No medical treatment is required. Any infected material from the host becomes noninfectious when it is exposed to the sunlight and dries out. If a person is bitten by a rabid animal, it is urgent to get medical attention as soon as possible. Untreated rabies progresses through several stages, ultimately ending in death. When a person is exposed rabies, the virus will incubate for weeks or months. After incubation, early symptoms often resemble the flu: general weakness or discomfort, fever, or headache may last for days. Rabies in humans is 100 percent preventable through prompt treatment and prophylaxis. Although exposure to rabies is highly treatable if care is obtained promptly, preventing infection in the first place certainly is preferrable. If you notice a stray animal in your neighborhood, contact your local animal control officer and request its removal. Pet owners should take their animals for regular veterinary appointments and keep their rabies shots up to date. Keeping cats and ferrets indoors and supervising dogs when they are outside will reduce the likelihood of a pet’s exposure to rabid wild animals. Watch See Rabies, page 13

A timely question for our readers Over the past few months, The Citizen has run several installments of a timeline of the town’s history. It’s a remarkable document and represents a long, painstaking effort by local historians who pieced it together. The timeline ends in January 1997 with the launch of The Berlin Citizen. While the beginning of local newspaper coverage means there’s now an extensive record of Berlin life — we want to hear what you think the “rest of the story” should be. Between 1997 and 2010 — 13 years, a half-generation — what do you think are the most significant events —

the people, places or things — that stand out during the most recent installment of town history? Perhaps more time is need to assess this, perhaps history is most often formed slowly — but not always. Looking at the rich past of the town — the presidential visits, the philanthropists, major moves by town leaders — the past looms large. What do you think is noteworthy in Berlin’s most recent past? We want to hear your thoughts. Send an email with your top picks to and we’ll publish your replies.

Dogs, cats and the summer doldrums This week’s edition of The Citizen features several stories about animals — working dogs, summer pet care and a great group of people who help cats find good homes. We called this our “Dog Days” edition. It’s that time of year when, as much as we love summer, there’s a long, hot, cranky lull that inevitably sneaks up on us just when we thought we were having so much fun! Dogs, cats and other animal companions have to put up with the difficulties of summer, too, and their stories remind us how much they give us and how important it is to remember we have to help them deal with the heat. In a story on page 15, Animal Control Officer Jan Lund offers advice on keeping your dogs cool by avoiding hot pavement and confinement in cars. There were 10 days over 90 degrees in July — one that hit 102 degrees and many

more that hovered close enough to be considered hotter than heck. Dog Days are the hottest days of summer that fall between early July and early August. The term Dog Days also is used for a time period that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, was somehow responsible for the hot weather. Sirius is the brightest of the stars in Canis Major (the big dog) and the brightest star in the night sky and ancient Romans thought that the earth received heat from it. It’s easier to see the star January, looking towards the south. In mid-summer, Sirius, rises and sets with the sun — and ancient astronomers speculated that its heat added to the heat of the sun caused the summertime peak of temperatures. — Olivia L. Lawrence

Student voices

Young journalist takes on role of investigative reporter By Daniyal N. Khan Special to The Citizen

I am Daniyal Naveed Khan, a Berlin High School student who will be starting junior year this fall. Recently, I attended a 13 day program at the National Student Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., at American University, from July 5 to July 17. During the program, NSLC partnered with American University’s School of Communications to give us the Discover the World of Communication classes of which I chose the Advanced Scriptwriting & Video Production class. The class lasted for eight meetings; each three hours long. During classes, I was put into three different groups and I was able to produce three different videos including a final project shown on the morning of the second last day of the program in a theatre at the university where students from other Discover the World of Communication classes showcased their work, too. The videos I produced will be posted, during the next two months, on On the second day of the program, there was a ropes challenge course which

out for strange behavior in animals. Signs of possible rabies infection in both wild and domesticated animals include: shyness of a normally friendly pet; fearlessness of humans in wild animals; uncharacteristic excitability, aggressiveness, or restlessness; sudden mood changes; excessive drooling; abnormal activity during the time of day the animal is usually inactive; eating substances not normally eaten; and paralysis. If any of these signs are present, contact the local animal control officer or the po-

There were also five leadership rotations and five workshop rotations throughout the program where team advisors led sessions and taught students about different aspects of leadership such as conflict resolution as well as different aspects of

lice.

mass communication such as interviewing and accurate reporting. Team advisors also chaperoned field trips to places such as Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian, the American Film Institute, Voice of America, Arlington Cemetery, Washington D.C. memorials and many more places of interest. Other field trips

included: the Newseum, Washington Post, Nationals vs. Giants baseball game, and the Holocaust Memorial Museum. There were numerous leadership sessions during the program and also a guest speaker who spoke about being peacemakers rather than war makers. To give the students an idea of how today’s news world works, there was a Newsroom Simulation on the tenth day of the program where students were put into teams which represented a fictional newspaper. They were put into a real life scenario where a major leak had just happened in the pipelines of a big oil company. I was required to attend press conferences, write a news story, blog online, and make a video package. Students gave each other different jobs in the group and I was given the job of investigative reporter. My team’s newspaper was The Daily Roman. I was the on-camera correspondent for my team’s news package which I also edited. My team’s news package won after being judged on accuracy. Overall, NSLC was a life changing, absolutely amazing experience for me where I made new friends, met industry professionals, gained

confidence and self-esteem, learned great leadership skills, and learned a lot about the world of communication. I am now part of the NSLC alumni which has its benefits such as the fact that I can nominate other students who I think are good candidates for this program. Every penny spent for this experience was worth it and I would love to do it again. I can also apply for a position as a team advisor when I am in college which would be another great experience for me. At the end of the program I got a shirt from NSLC, a shirt from the DWC program, a certificate from NSLC and DWC program, a letter of acknowledgement from NSLC-for my future college applications-, a group photo of everyone in the program, a transcript of the program, a list of contacts of the students in this year’s program, a nomination form, and a letter congratulating me on finishing this program. I would like to thank my parents for financing this trip for me, the NSLC Staff for providing this amazing experience to me, and the staff at The Berlin Citizen for taking their valuable time in publishing this article.

Treat your dog with extra care in hot weather

Hot pavement, stifling car interiors, hurt your pet By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen

Animal Control Officer Jan Lund says it should be a well-known fact that dogs can suffer during hot summer weather — but some people still just don’t get it. This summer a call came in about a dog left in a car in the parking lot of Ocean State Job Lot. When police got there, it was determined

Berlin Brief

Family Health and Safety Day

Keep canine cool To keep your dog cool through the rest of the summer keep in mind these tips from ACO Jan Lund. The pavement is very hot. Do not expose your dog to long walks on tar or concrete, his feet can be burned. Dogs should also limit outdoor playtime during extreme heat, they like air-conditioning and lots of water, just like their human companions. Lund said it’s best to “just watch TV together and not play fetch.” If you have to leave your dog at home during the day, put ice-cubes in its water bowl to keep the water cool. Put on the air-conditioning, at least in the room where your dog will be spending time.

side a closed vehicle, even with moderately warm temperatures outside. The study found that even at 9 a.m. with an outside temperature of 82 degrees, the closed automobile registered 109 degrees inside. The API’s study also measured vehicles with cracked windows. With four windows cracked, an 88 degree day outside turned into a 103 degree sauna inside the vehicle at 10 a.m. Visit for ways to be pro-active in stopping a dog-in-vehicle tragedy.

Dogs often enjoy a kiddie pool, just getting their paws wet will help them cool down. Dogs can get cranky with the heat, just like humans do. If it’s hot and the dog appears content to be left alone, let him be. Do not take your dog in the car when it is hot or may potentially get hot. Parking in the shade and leaving the windows down is not enough. In a matter of just a few minutes, a dog can be overcome by the heat. Temperatures in a closed automobile will rise approximately: 19 degrees in 10 minutes ; 29 degrees in 20 minutes ; 34 degrees in 30 minutes; 43 degrees in an hour. The Animal Protection Institute conducted a study that showed that deadly temperatures can quickly build in-

The Chamber of Commerce has scheduled its 3rd annual Family Health and Safety Day for Saturday, Sept. 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Farmers’ Market, located at the American Legion, 154 Porter’s Pass.

The misdemeanor can result in a fine and more serious charges can also result from such neglectful actions. Even if the windows in a vehicle are left open, in 85 degree weather, the temperature inside a car can reach 120 degrees in 15 minutes, Lund said. “Why would you bring a dog in the car? It’s unfathonable,” Lund said. She is surprised and dismayed that after all the public education around not leaving dogs or other pets in the car, that people still think it will be okay. “Dogs don’t sweat” and it’s difficult for them to shed off the excess heat through panting, she said. So far this summer, with a record-breaking heat wave in July, there have been several calls regarding animals left in a vehicle. However, only one written warning has

Murphy to play for Clemson By Nick Carroll The Berlin Citizen

Berlin High School Class of 2010 alumnus Maggie Murphy will continue her soccer career at South Carolina’s Clemson University, a NCAA Division I school. The 5-foot-8 forward had not planned to play at Clemson, but was convinced by her father to get in touch with Tigers coach Hershey Strosberg. As luck would have it, Strosberg had played for Murphy’s Premier coach, Leszek Wrona. That connection helped Murphy get her foot in the door at Clemson. She went on to attend a soccer camp at the school, and coaches liked what they saw. Clemson is a member of the rugged Atlantic Coast Conference. The ACC includes Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, and several other well-respected athletic schools. “This is a great opportunity for Maggie,” said BHS girls soccer coach Steve Yanosy. “She will be playing in one of the best conferences in the country, and her work ethic and competitiveness will allow her to do well.” A two-time all-conference performer in soccer, Murhpy

helped lead the Lady Redcoats to conference titles in in 2008 and 2009. “She was a great player for the Redcoats and was a constant on the field,” said Yanosy. “She is a player that can run forever and she always has a knack for serving a great ball, or being at the end of a great cross.” Before settling on Clemson, Murphy considered attending either the University of Delaware or Tulane University. No matter where she ended up, she knew she would play soccer. She didn’t envision competing for the school’s official team, however. “Going into college, I was planning on doing club or intramural soccer,” said Murphy, “anything that would make me be able to keep playing.” Unlike many Division I soccer players, for Murphy, soccer was just one of her athletic endeavors during high school. She played lacrosse and competed in indoor track and field as well. “I have never been able to fully devote myself to playing soccer because of all the other sports and extracurricular activities I have done throughout high school,” said Murphy. “So I am really

Maggie Murphy will continue her soccer career at Clemson University. excited to see what I will be capable of doing, competing at this high of a level.” Clemson struggled in 2009, finishing 3-15 overall and 010 in the ACC, but Murphy believes better days are ahead for the Tigers. “There has been a few bumps in the road, but I definitely think the program is on its way up.” Incredibly, Murphy is just one of several members of

Youth basketball The Berlin Parks and Recreation Department recently completed the first session of its youth basketball program. For grades three and four, DeAna Gibson and McKenna Evans tied for the overall points cham-

pion. McKenna was the free throw champion and DeAna won the one on one competition. For grades five and six, Mike Wojciechowski was the overall points champion and he also won the one on one competition. The free throw champion was Jay Adams. For grades 7-9, Anthony Cellela was the overall points champion and Reid Hilbie was the free throw champion and won the one on one competition.

the BHS girls soccer Class of 2010 that will be playing Division I soccer this fall. Joining Murphy on Division I rosters are former teammates Blair Ferry (University of Massachusetts), Kerry Scalora (University of Pennsylvania) and Nikki Kureczka (Central Connecticut State University). “I’ve always known the talent that we had ever since our travel team, Berlin

Blaze, won three state championships,” said Murphy. “It was really unfortunate that we weren’t able to pull out a state championship our senior year, but no matter what, it’s always been so great playing with all of them and I’m going to miss them so much on and off the field.” Murphy headed off to Clemson last week to begin practice.

Bulletin Board Berlin High School alumni Daniel Baccaro and Michael Baccaro were named to the 2010 Little East Conference AllAcademic Baseball team. The Baccaro brothers were the only Western Connecticut State University baseball players to

earn the honor. Daniel Baccaro graduated, cum laude, in the spring and will attend graduate school in the fall. He finished Top 10 at Western in career homeruns, hits and RBI. Michael Baccaro is entering his senior year.

Cats find new lives with a little help from their Friends By Olivia L. Lawrence The Berlin Citizen

Hundreds of cats have found good homes over the past few years thanks to the efforts of a dedicated group of local volunteers who stage adoption days and online photo galleries — all to give felines in need a second chance at a good life. Concetta Berardozzi has been the adoption and foster care coordinator for the Friends of Berlin Animal Control for the past 10 years. FOBAC successfully places between 150 and 200 cats and kittens each year, plus an occasional rabbit or hamster. “Most of them have been abandoned, we’ve seen this, especially lately due to economic foreclosures and people leaving them behind,” Berardozzi said adding that there are more kittens this time of year, too. FOBAC uses a variety of approaches to find placements for the cats. Each week a photo of a featured cat runs in The Citizen (see page 14), the group also maintains a database of adoptable cats at and volunteers set up adoption open house events at local sites, such as

The Kozlouski famly adopts two kittens from FOBAC, Papa Bear and River, July 11 at A.S. Labieniec’s. the July 17 event at the Animal Hospital of Berlin and ongoing events at A.S. Labieniec’s feed store on Farmington Avenue. The group has also partnered with the Rock Cats and the team’s mascot Rocky has helped out at recent adoption and New Britian Stadium has participated in fundrais-

ing activities with FOBAC. Foster care is an important component of FOBAC’s work. Kittens become highly socialized in foster homes and adult cats regain their trust and affection for humans. Foster care keeps animals adoptable, whereas living in a cage can create behaviors that make the animals less appealing to poten-

tial adoptive families. Fostering is especially important for a cat with special needs and for kittens, Beradozzi said. Dogs generally can find placement through the town’s animal control facility. “I’ve always loved animals and saw a couple of cruelty

cases that shocked me,” said Beradozzi, a piano teacher, about her motivation for getting involved. Among the tasks that must be done to get animals ready for adoption, Beradozzi photographs the animals, meets with them to assess how well they are likely to get along with children and adults, and talks with the adoptive person about how to prepare to welcome a new member of the family. “We work very hard,” Beradozzi said of the approximately dozen FOBAC volunteers.”It can be emotionally difficult.” Those interested in adopting should get pre-approved with a letter of reference from a vet or a personal reference. The group also has an “indoor policy” for cats and no de-clawing is allowed. FOBAC is involved in providing low-cost spay neuter services, as well. “Education is a big part of what we do,” Beradozzi said. Helping adopting families helps to ensure that “You know animals are going into a good home.” For more information call the FOBAC hotline at (860)828-5287.

Ricky Continued from page 3

lice forces to help find lost or trapped people. CCSAR dogs are trained for a wide variety of search situations. Ricky, a seven year-old golden retriever, is an air-scenting dog, trained to recognize scent drifting through the air and to find its source. In the past several years, Pigott remembered only four occasions when she has been called out with Ricky for a search in Berlin. When the call comes in, the search manager divides the search area into roughly 40 acre sections, one section per dog. At that point, handlers strategize on how to deploy the dogs. They want to work into the wind, so that the dogs can pick up scent. Their strategy depends on many variables including prevailing wind, terrain, and even time of day. With a plan in place, a handler commands the dog to “search.” The dog dashes off

to look for the scent that it is introduced to beforehand. Pigott has never known of a dog who takes more than an hour to find a person who is within their 40 acre section. If the dog finds what it has been looking for, it will dash back to the handler and give a sign. For instance, Ricky will leap into the air when he gets to Pigott who will command Ricky to “show me.” At that point, Ricky will lead her to the person and Pigott will radio to the other searchers that the subject has been found. Ricky is then rewarded with a game of catch with a tennis ball. The reward of catch goes back to Ricky’s training. According to Pigott, any healthy puppy that possesses a strong play or prey drive can be trained to be a search and rescue dog. “It takes 18 months to train a dog,” says Pigott, “and two years to train their handlers. You can draw your own conclusions.” Handlers take classes in the way scent travels, how to train their dog and

bereavement classes to comfort mourning families. The police and fire departments call CCSAR mostly to find a person with Alzheimer’s disease, or who are suicidal—the groups of people who don’t carry a cell phone. “It’s a sad fact, but most are found dead,” Pigott said. The reason she keeps doing this kind of work is because it’s an opportunity to help people using her dog. She told a story as an illustration of how rewarded it can be. “Several years ago, I came out of CVS in town, I had left Ricky’s predecessor in the car and a woman was standing by the car looking at him with tears streaming down her face. I was like ‘ok, now what? I was just here to get toothpaste.’ She asked me ‘is this the dog that was on the Mystic search?’ I said ‘yes’ and she said ‘he was the one that found the girl’s jacket?’ I said, ‘yes’, he did. She said, ‘If it were not for you, I couldn’t move on. I just want to thank you.’”

Engagement Gagne-Chapman J. Leo and Diane Gagne of Kensington announce the engagement of their daughter Alycia to Sean Chapman of Germantown, Maryland. The bride-to-be is a 2002 Berlin High School graduate and is working towards her doctorate in clinical psychology at Argosy University, Washington, D.C. Her fiancé is a police officer for the Montgomery County, Maryland. An October wedding is planned.

cruiser) and he sits in front seat and watches me. He decides when I’m in danger and will deploy out the window. He knows the difference between normal stop and what is abnormal. With training and trust, he knows to do the right thing.� Keen senses are another attribute of canine partners.

Krzykowski recalled when she and Titan were helping in another town where law enforcement was seeking a missing driver, of a car, who was wanted for questioning. Police assembled a line of suspects and Titan correctly ID’d the person. The primary characteristic police look for in a potential canine partner “is high drive, a dog that is go-go- go,� Krzykowski said. She saw

that trait in Titan from the start. However, not all police dogs have the sociable side, he possesses. He’s a great dog to take into the classroom and community, she said. He also keeps her focused and enthusiastic. If it’s rainy or dull day, Titan is still more than ready to embrace the day with gusto.

Titan was teamed with Krzykowski in December 2008, at 14 months old. His extensive training is reinforced with a once a month program, offered by state police, where canine patrols work on role playing new skills based on real life situations.

Caring for a animal while he works is a big consideration. “You have to take precautions to make sure you take care of his health above everything else,� Krzykowski said. Titan gets plenty of exercise, breaks and there’s a water bowl in the cruiser at all times.

learned from the epitaph. “The cemeteries are really deteriorating,� Lindgren said. “The tombstones are old-fashioned sandstone. Kids will go up into the cemeteries breaking the tombstones and they think it’s funny, and history is being lost.� The early settlers of Berlin extensively used sandstone for their headstones. Today, granite is used because it’s harder and thus more durable. Over time, sandstone slowly erodes and deteriorates. A few granite headstones dot the old cemeteries. The stones look like recent additions, but a closer look shows it’s from the early 1800s. A sandstone marker, just yards away, honoring the resting place of a Civil War soldier, provides only faint inscription. In the past, it was through volunteer work that Berlin’s cemeteries have been preserved. Boy Scout Thomas Satkowski earned his Eagle Scout rank by restoring the cemetery on the Farmington Avenue in 2000. Last spring, another Boy Scout worked on the Christian Lane Cemetery for his Eagle Scout project.
