Kids, kangaroo converge on Timberlin By Nate Brown The Berlin Citizen

While school has yet to let out for summer, some of the town’s youth were getting an early jump on what’s sure to be one of their vacation activities. Timberlin Golf Course held a junior clinic last week, coinciding with April vacation. Twenty-six intrepid youngsters ranging in age from 4 to 13 came out to the local public course to learn more about the game. “I was very impressed with how well-behaved and engaged the junior golfers were this week, even with the poor weather,” Timberlin Pro Marc Bayram said. “They are the future of the game and the future of Timberlin. It was an absolute pleasure to teach them about the game I grew to love when I was their age.” Throughout the week, kids went over several aspects of the game, including full swings, putting, and the rules, among other things. “My favorite part of teaching the game of golf to the youth of Berlin is to not only teach the basic fundamentals of the swing, but to also educate them on the life skills golf teaches,” Bayram said. “Honesty, integrity, and respect are just a few

Throughout the week, kids practiced their chipping by trying to land the ball inside the

kangaroo’s pouch. “When introducing youngsters to the game, I feel it is important to make it fun,” Bayram said. “The kangaroo was a great time for them and helped keep them engaged throughout the week.” Timberlin will run five additional week-long clinics throughout the summer months. For more information, visit www.timberlingolf.com.

The annual budget referendum will be held Tuesday, April 29, and council members of both parties have spoken about efforts to increase turnout. Last year, only 1,173 people – 8 percent of registered voters – voted in the budget referendum. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Polling places include American Legion Post 68, Willard school, Hubbard school, Griswold school, and the Senior Center. Absentee ballots are available at the Town Clerk’s office. In this year’s budget, health insurance costs are up for both the Board of Education and town staff. Town Manager Denise McNair described the budget she presented to the council as one of the smallest increases requested in recent history. Members of the BOE also described their request as such. Although there has been much debate between council members on some budget cuts, both sides agreed to more than $200,000 in cuts from the originally proposed budget. See Councilors / Page 4

difficult terrain, but nothing like the sheer rock faces one may have to contend with on more challenging hikes. Trail markers are abundant, making it difficult to lose the path – which is very well worn and kept clear of plant life. A lot of volunteer work goes into maintaining Connecticut’s hiking trails. According to Trail Stewardship Director Clare Cain, last year alone, volunteers put a total of 18,000 hours into trail maintenance. This includes routine brush clipping by volunteers, who choose to adopt small sections of trail as well as larger projects taken on by bigger groups, including sawing and moving downed trees, building bridges or boardwalks in wetlands, and other tasks. All volunteers are trained by the CFPA to help make sure trails meet standards for a good hiking experience. The Town Council recently approved a land purchase from the Chotkowski family as open space that will further improve available hiking trails. This purchase will allow hiking trails to be connected through the new open space area. This purchase was financed with $500,000 coming from a state grant, and $700,000 coming from a prior bond authorization, Town Manager Denise McNair explained. The money is not coming out of the town’s operational budget.

Families unfamiliar with the trails nestled behind the golf course at Timberlin Park will have the chance to walk those woods, with the help of a guide, for the The WalkCT Family Ramble hike Saturday, April 26. The hike is appropriate for families with children 8 and older, and will feature some steep terrain, ridgeline views, and streams. Town staff member and hiking enthusiast Jim Mahoney helped coordinate the event and will lead some of the family ramblers. Trail promotion manager for the Connecticut Forest

and Park Association, Jennifer Benner, said that the “CFPA couldn’t be more pleased to be partnering with the Town of Berlin for this project. More and more Connecticut towns are realizing that their recreational trails are considered gold to their citizens and visitors. Providing guided events on trails is a great way for towns to introduce people to the beautiful areas right in their own backyards. “The family ramble series is a wonderful way to reach more people and show them what Berlin’s open space has to offer,” Benner said. This reporter walked some of the trails at Timberlin Park. They are well-maintained, with ample parking near the golf course. The trailhead begins near an old playground, and the first part of the trail features a well-made bridge over a stream. Parts of the trails are quite rocky, and I found myself wishing I’d brought a pair of hiking boots rather than simple tennis shoes. Thick-soled shoes are definitely beneficial on some parts of the trail. In other places, runoff from streams makes for a muddy path, so parents who are fastidious about keeping their cars clean may want a towel for the drive home. The trails are a good introduction to hiking without being too strenuous for a beginner to navigate. There is

nature of the budget, further decreases would necessitate decreases in school staff. The proposed budget of $78,759,162 represents a .32 mill increase, which means approximately a 1.25 percent increase in taxes. The U.S. Department of Labor’s reported inflation rate for 2013 is 1.5 percent, meaning the buying power of each dollar has decreased 1.5 percent since last year. Read all of The Citizen’s budget coverage, including letters to the editor, online. Visit TheBerlinCitizen.com and type “budget” into the search bar.

The town and BOE cited significant challenges in developing this year’s budget. Mayor Rachel Rochette said the town “faces the same rising costs you have at home.” The town begins with a deficit before the budget process begins, Rochette said. Board of Education President Gary Brochu said that magnet school tuition and special education costs are significant, and are costs Berlin schools are required to provide and are unable to negotiate.

The Berlin Citizen | theberlincitizen.com

Opinion Letters to the editor Live within our means To the editor: I find it interesting that so many people this year wanted to explain, comment on, or put forth the ideas I presented for reducing the town budget. My approach was simply to live within our means, to utilize our 1.56 percent grand list growth to take care of our town and schools. I am not beyond compromise, but even after incorporating the feedback of citizen’s at the public hearing, there was no compromise. Bill Rasmussen and others on council continue to hedge their bet, which if they did not get the budget passed, they could fall back to my solutions and say they listened to the taxpayer. Some on council listened to me; thank you Brenden Luddy and Charles Paonessa for doing so. And in case you missed it, here were the details behind my compromise Bill Rasmussen highlighted in his letter last week, but was unwilling to accept. I arrived at my budget compromise by counting the 17 speakers from the public hearing and deciphering whether they appeared to want us to keep or lower the proposed budget amount. Seven appeared to want it lowered and 10 appeared to want it to stay the same. Using this ratio, I applied 7/17ths to the $707,000 (value

to get to no tax increase and match the 1.56 percent grand list growth) to arrive at a $291,000 reduction. I then made a judgment of how to apply this to the town and BOE with the following specific reductions: Town side – $50,000 contingency, $50,000 Scalise Field, $20,000 operating materials, $15,000 supplies, $135,000 town subtotal. School side – $35,000 legal, $66,000 administrator raises, $55,000 equally from capital and site & equipment; $156,000 school subtotal. Total: $291,000. I listen to you, and how you vote. Will the majority on council? Let us know. Be sure to vote April 29. David Evans Town Council

not worthy of our support. An almost identical scheme was attempted in 2007 and was overwhelmingly defeated at referendum. So, by the “thinking” of Mayor Rochette and gang, it’s no major concern to have your hard earned tax dollars buried in the dump for 15 years before it’s paid for. Ridiculous! There is a proper way for computers to be purchased. A general obligation bond that taxpayers will be paying for long past the useful life of these computers is not the way. Stop the decade’s worth of yearly tax increases that have now added up to 10 large cups of coffee a day. Vote no on the budget April 29. Scott Veley Former Deputy Mayor

Budget is a real lemon

Vote yes

To the editor: B erlin’s liberal Town Council majority, after months of preparing the 20142015 fiscal year budget, has come up with a real lemon. Not only have they raised your taxes for 11 years in a row, but in their uncontrolled appetite for spending they’ve decided it’s a brilliant idea to purchase $2 million worth of computer/media equipment on a 20-year bond. People, this single-handedly makes this budget thoughtless and

Palmer Senior Vice President and Editor – Ralph Tomaselli

To the editor: Voters in Berlin are being asked to determine the fate of this year’s budget proposal. The Town Council, working with the Town Manager and Board of Education, have presented a 2014-2015 fiscal year budget that raises the mill rate by a modest 0.32. While this represents a slight property tax increase it should also be noted that it will preserve the services we expect from Berlin, services such as police and fire protection and quality education for our children.

An unacceptable budget

To the editor: A proposed budget of $78.8 million (increase of 46 percent in the past 10 years) is unacceptable to today’s Connecticut economy. With a grand list growth of 1.56 percent and an additional 1.1 percent added to the budget, the taxpayer burden is proposed to be 2.66 percent. Can I ask how many of you received a raise higher or even equal to that amount? The Democrats, applauding their budget, have put forth nine tax increases in 11 years, with this being the fifth tax increase in a row. My

question: At what point will the Democrats feel the economy is bad enough to try to have a spending increase equal to grand list growth? By all accounts, Connecticut is struggling and rates among the bottom of the states in terms of recovery, economic growth, job growth, housing, etc. The population of Connecticut is decreasing and the near future does not bode well for our state, and therefore our town. With an automatic increase of .43 mils, or 15 percent tax increase, next year due to the BHS renovation, we need to control/reduce spending and grow business in town for a sustainable tax base in the future. Please get out and vote no on April 29. Anne Reilly Chairperson, BRTC

rowing money to replace the field, we have planned to set aside funds for the next three years so we have the full amount available when needed. This budget is fair. It includes funding for a trash collection rebate for all condominium owners in town, ensuring condo residents receive the same service others in town do. It includes funding for our infrastructure, roads and bridges, to make sure that the roads we all use are safe. It funds the Board of Education at a rate that allows current curriculum and programs to continue. This budget is responsible. All members of the Town Council understand

the burden taxes place on all residents. We have looked critically at all areas of spending to ensure that savings are realized when possible. At the same time we looked critically to ensure that we did not place undue burdens on future councils. Maintenance of town buildings, capital and infrastructure expenditures must be continued to ensure that there is not a larger expense down the road. Myself, and the other Democratic members of the Town Council feel strongly that the budget presented to you is the right budget for Berlin. We strongly encourage you to vote in favor of its adoption on Tuesday, April 29.

Berlin Free Library: A wealth of history By Lorraine Stub (Part 2 of a two-part series. Part 1 can be viewed on The Citizen website.) While the town-owned and financed Berlin-Peck Memorial Library has a greater presence, the Berlin Free Library on Worthington Ridge also has a devoted following and a wealth of history. Its roots go back to the collection of public books stored beneath the pulpit at the Worthington Meeting House. After 1835, that collection moved to a small wooden chapel once used for music lessons on property where the large brick “Prentice House” was later built.

According to Emily Brandegee’s historical papers, the book shelf in the chapel became known as “The Berlin Library.” By 1856, this chapel and land were sold. For years the library books moved in and out of various locations in private residences and two general stores along Worthington Ridge, much as the old post office did before it found a permanent home. By 1892, the collection outgrew space at the Galpin Store. Friends of the Library, led by Dr. Elishama Brandegee, raised funds for the first free-standing library building and The Berlin Free Library Association was legally incorporated by an act of the state legislature

in 1893. Land was purchased from John Webber, who owned the house directly across from Hudson Street and next to the store. A Victorian cottage style building was built just north of the Webber house. The collection by that time was over 1,000 volumes. None but our oldest citizens now remember time spent in that charming building. The Berlin Historical Society archives include pictures of it and the museum displays a three-corner chair and a portrait of Alfred North by artist Robert Bolling Brandegee, both heirlooms from the building. Unfortunately, the old library was not re-purposed and as many old structures in Berlin, it was torn down. In 1954, the library found a new home, where it remains today, in The Old Academy Building at 834 Worthington Ridge.

It surprises many today that the building had a long history of prior use. In the early 19th century, public education beyond grade 8 was rare. There would not be a public high school in Berlin until the 1930s. For those whose families could afford further education, private prep schools were built, including one in Berlin. Two previous academies were housed along Worthington Ridge, beginning in 1801, in buildings still standing as private homes. Emma and Almira Hart were among the first students at these academies before teaching in Berlin at a time when advanced educational opportunities for women were rare. Emma Hart Willard would later found a female seminary in Troy, New York operating to this day as The Emma Willard School. In 1831, prominent citizens

from the North, Brandegee, Beckley, Savage, Booth, Dunbar and Guernsey families formed the Worthington Academical Company and raised funds by selling stock to build the brick building that 123 years later would become The Berlin Free Library. The school was known for high standards and was able to attract a mix of local students and others from Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Georgia. The school did not always occupy both floors during its years of operation. The upstairs room was used as a meeting room for the borough of Worthington and later the local Temperance Society. For a time it even functioned as a court house. By 1873, with declining enrollment, The Worthington Academy ceased operation See Library / Page 17

attention of the Historic District Commission. Standing 65 feet from the ground, the tower is difficult to access. Over time the balusters and rails are rotting and there is concern not only about these pieces falling off the structure, but that water will leak inside. The commission and The Berlin Free Library Board both want to see the tower preserved for future generations. Contrary to public thought, The Berlin Free Library is owned by a non-profit association and receives only a minimal support from The Town of Berlin. To further complicate things, a trust fund bequest established by Charles Warner, providing a small income, was set up so that the funds would revert to New Britain General Hospital (an entity that no longer exists by that name) if the library ceased to exist. If that were to happen, would this historic building be repurposed or would it be left to deteriorate? With no

funds for restoration or major maintenance, the library board is applying for historic preservation grants, but such grants require matching

funds. It’s hoped that those who value this town gem and its place in our history See Library / Page 18

and turned the building over to the Congregational Church for use as a chapel, reading room and school. In 1900 the church sold it to the Brandegee family, who lived next door. The first floor was then divided into rooms and used as a residence until 1951. Emily Brandegee, its last owner, generously donated the building to The Berlin Free Library Association which by then had outgrown space at its building down the street. After interior renovations, the library settled into its permanent home in 1955. Over the years I’ve come to appreciate not only the memories inside that building, but its architecture and history. Regrettably, in a town that has so much history, we have only churches, the train station, the old Peck Library, the Berlin Post Office and this building open to the public. That the library has little changed on the exterior since 1831 is remarkable. Its distinctive

features include a brick exterior, brownstone foundation, lintels and sills, and 12 over 12 light windows. The entry way, with its wood paneled door, is crowned by an arc of leaded glass panes framed in brownstone. A hand wrought iron door latch and a decorative fanlight in the attic gable add to the detail of the building’s design. Equally remarkable is its white tower with fluted Doric pilasters, turned balusters and molded rail appointed with unique wooden urns on each corner. Neighbor Amy Prescher, an art historian, remarks that looking out her bedroom window at the tower transports her to familiar scenes in London neighborhoods. Early 19th century New England architecture often reflected a reverence for elements of classic Roman and Greek styles with street facing gables, columns and pediments suggesting ancient temples. That the library’s landmark tower is in need of urgent repair came to the

Hall of Fame: Orlowsky, Francalangia

Baseball, softball teams stay hot By Nate Brown The Berlin Citizen

David Francalangia

Lynne Orlowsky

Lynne Orlowsky Finn, Class of 1994 During her four years, Lynne excelled in soccer, tennis and basketball. In soccer, she was a four-year varsity member, playing forward, and served as the team’s leading scorer in multiple seasons. She was a Redcoat and Coach’s award recipient and earned All-Northwest Conference honors three times. In basketball, Lynne was a four-year varsity member, serving as the team’s point guard. She was named the defensive Player of the Year during her sophomore season, and received the Bill Gibney Award her senior year. She was a two-time All-Northwest Conference honoree, and was selected to play in the Connecticut Coaches All-Star Game as a senior. In tennis, Lynne played both the number 1 and 2 singles position during her four years. She posted a career mark of 120 wins against only five losses. She also played doubles, winning the Northwest Conference singles championship two times. She won the Northwest Conference singles championship as a senior, and was a three-time All-Northwest Conference honoree. She was also the recipient of the Redcoat and Coach’s award for tennis. Lynne went on to attend Bentley University, playing tennis all four years at number 1 and 4 singles. She received the Coach’s Award as the team’s outstanding player three times and was voted to the All-Northeast Conference team in her junior and senior year. Lynne held the record for most wins at Bentley for three years. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. She married Kevin Finn in 2002, and cur-

rently resides in Farmington with their two children, Abby and Tyler. Lynne actively participates in her children’s school as the president of the PTO. David Francalangia, Class of 1996 David was a four-year member of both the baseball and soccer teams. He was a part of the 1995 baseball team that won 20 straight games and captured the Northwest Conference and the Class M state championships. He was an All-Academic selection while participating in baseball. It was soccer where David was considered one of the best players to come through Berlin. Among his many awards were the Offensive Player and Coach’s Awards, as well as All-Academic status. He was an AllNorthwest Conference player in his junior and senior seasons, and received All-State recognition as a senior. David set many school records during his career. On the state level in 1995, he scored the most goals with 31, and was the top scorer with 80 total points (31 goals, 19 assists). He set the following Redcoat records during his tenure at Berlin High: most goals in a season (31), assists in a season (18), most goals in a game (5), most points in a game (11), most career goals (60), most career assists (41), and most career points (161). David went on to graduate from Villanova University, where he was a member of the soccer team all four years. He was named the Rookie of the Year in both the Philadelphia Seven and Big East Conferences. Francalangia also received AllAcademic and Player of the Week Awards See HOF / Page 20

Baseball The Redcoats improved to 4-1 following a 3-0 week which included wins against South Windsor, Bristol Central and Stafford. In the boys’ first game of the stretch, they came out on top over the Wildcats, 15-10. The team put up a seven-spot in the top of the third to take the lead for good, and outlasted a five-run fifth inning rally by South Windsor to hold on for the W. Junior Jared Gallagher earned the victory on the mound. Against the Rams, the Redcoats were able to overcome a first inning 4-0 deficit to win 6-5 as they out-hit Bristol Central 8-5. Senior Kyle Naples pitched strong to earn the W. In Saturday’s 5-0 shutout of Stafford, the boys were in a scoreless deadlock before blowing the barn doors open, scoring all five runs in the top of the seventh, outlasting and outperforming the impressive Bulldogs (4-2). Gallagher earned his second pitching victory of the week. Softball The Lady Redcoats remained undefeated following a 2-0 week that included wins over East Hartford and Bristol Central. The girls defeated East Hartford 12-1 to start the stretch. The game remained scoreless until the fourth inning and remained close (21) until Berlin went to work, scoring five runs in the bottom of the fifth. The Lady Redcoats put the contest out of reach with another fivespot in the bottom of the sixth. Senior pitcher Mikayla Harris earned yet another

win while also producing at the plate. She hit a three-run home run while junior Kelsie Anderson went 2-for-3 with a double and four runs batted in. Berlin shut out previously undefeated Bristol Central 6-0 to finish the week strong. Harris, once again, led the way from the mound. Junior Katie Guild belted a home run for the locals. Boys golf The Redcoats lost their home opener by a tough three-stroke decision. Hosting Morgan and Bristol Eastern at Timberlin, Berlin came up just shy of the Huskies, falling 168-171. Morgan’s Gabe Van Ness finished as the medalist, carding a strong 37. The Redcoats were able to get their first W of the year in convincing fashion, defeating the Lancers 171-186. Boys track and field After posting an impressive season-opening victory over Bulkeley, the Redcoats came crashing back to earth after getting crushed by Middletown, 120-30. Girls track and field The Lady Redcoats couldn’t keep the good times rolling, as they dropped one to Middletown, 72-63. The Berlin girls easily won their season-opening meet against Bulkeley. Boys lacrosse The Redcoats seem to be hitting their strides on the turf as a 2-1 week helped the squad improve to 3-2. The Berlin boys lost a tough matchup with a difficult East Catholic team, 12-3, to begin their week. Senior Jordan Kradas scored two goals for the Redcoats, while senior teammate Ben Tomascak added one. Senior Matt Cote recorded 10 saves in goal for the locals. See Notes / Page 20

Sophomore standout Garrett Guite also recorded a hattrick for the victors, while senior teammate Luc Bolduc added two more goals.

BERLIN NOTICE Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Section 16-50l(g) of the Connecticut General Statutes of a public information meeting to be held as part of the Town of Berlin Planning & Zoning Commission meeting on Thursday, May 8, 2014 beginning at 6:00 pm at Berlin Town Hall, 240 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT 06037. The meeting will be in furtherance of a technical report on file with the Town of Berlin for a proposal by New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC (“AT&T”) to construct a wireless telecommunications tower facility (the “Facility”) at 1103 Chamberlain Highway in the Town of Berlin (the “Property”). The tower would be located in the northeastern portion of the Property, which is owned by Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and is proposed to extend to an overall height of 175’ above grade. The Property is an approximately 6 acre parcel which is improved with the church building and associated parking lot, and an undeveloped portion in the rear of the parcel. The Facility is proposed to allow AT&T to provide wireless service in this area of Berlin. At the meeting, AT&T’s representatives will discuss the need for the facility, the location of existing surrounding facilities, list other sites or areas considered, and identify the potential environmental effects of the proposed facility including visibility of the tower Facility. This public informational meeting is being conducted at the request of the Town of Berlin in advance of a formal application to be filed with the State of Connecticut Siting Council which has jurisdiction over wireless tower facilities.
