Depot Crossing to languish no more By Daniel Jackson The Berlin Citizen

By mid-January CIL Development, Inc, a nonprofit specializing in real estate and development, will begin work on 848 Farmington Ave., also known as Depot Crossing. The building is a cornerstone of the town’s efforts to revitalize the area surrounding the train station and along Farmington Avenue. This building has stood unfinished, its Tyvek protecting the building from the snow of winter and the rain of summer, since the beginning of the recession. The Planning and Zoning Commission approved CIL’s plan for the property at its meeting Dec. 12, but not before CIL received help from the towns newly-formed Facade and Landscaping Grant Program. B erlin’s Economic

Development Director Jim Mahoney told the P&Z the first time Depot Crossing first came before the commission was Aug. 23, 2007. Now, after f ive years, “We’re at the last leg.” Martin Legault, president and CEO of CIL, told the P&Z the company plans to renovate the building as a mixed use building, with the first floor occupied by businesses and the top two floors filled with 16 housing units. The non-profit company creates living spaces for people who have low income or who are disabled. When they develop for-profit properties, the profits go towards the company’s non-profit mission, he said. CIL is the same company that manages Sherwood Lofts by Paper Goods Pond. CIL tweaked the original plans for the building. See Building / Page 7

Like in snow days past, people went sledding By Daniel Jackson The Berlin Citizen

Dec. 10 was the first snow day in Berlin. Emma Nagel, age 8, woke up at seven to go to Griswold Elementary School, just like she does every morning. The snow hadn’t even begun. “Mom was like ‘guess what’” Emma said. The school canceled school ahead of the flurries that began around 8 a.m. You know what that means. Yup. Snow day. On snow days, Emma will usually drink hot chocolate or go to the movie theater. But this snow day, this very first snow day of Winter 2013, was for sledding. That evening, about a dozen sledders dot the hill behind Griswold school. They carry orange sleds and blue, plastic saucers. As the sky grows dark, they make a few more trips down the hill before they head home. “I knew she wanted to go sledding,” said Emma’s dad, Tom Nagel. He got out of work early and, together, they hit the slope behind Griswold school at about 2:30 p.m. Dusk was beginning to deepen at 4 p.m. As they talked, Emma leaned on the guardrail along the parking lot. Sometimes, she will take food dye and squirt it out on clean snow. Once, in front of her cousins, she ate snow dyed with yellow food dye. “Yeah, she likes to play jokes,” Nagel said At first, the snow stuck to the sled when the pair started sledding. It was slow going for Emma.

Youth climb the hill behind Griswold Elementary School after a sledding run. | (Daniel Jackson / The Berlin Citizen) But now, after sledders went down time and time again, the slope is fast. At the bottom, the group piled snow into a jump. Nagel hopes the weather stays cold, that it keeps snowing. As for the two, they head home to hot chocolate and dinner. Joe Samojla watches his two sons and one of their friends from the top of the hill. The family’s dog, Ginger,

chases snowballs. Samojla is “Surprised there’s not more kids, though. Usually it’s jammed packed.” As soon as he got home from work, “they dragged me out.” The boys make one more run down the slope. Samojla remembers when he was a student at Griswold. The old principal would spin the kids on the metal saucers See Sledding / Page 5

manufacturers and mill work. In the past, those companies would pay to throw out their waste. BioPellet now pays them for the dust. “We take their waste and turn it into energy,” Lanata said. A hopper feeds the sawdust into a silo which in turn feeds it into a machine which squeezes the sawdust with 150 tons of force to make the brick. No binder is used. Lanata said the natural ligaments in the wood, which held the wood in place as it grew, reform under the pressure to keep the brick together. Every six seconds, a brick pops out, travels up a ramp and is placed in a hopper where it waits to be packaged, placed on a pallet and shipped out. After eight years in business, BioPellet’s greatest challenge remains educating consumers. Many times, consumers don’t know what the BioBrick is. Once, someone asked Lanata “do you eat it?” “There is a lot of market we haven’t touched,” Blakeslee said. The other challenge is preserving their name. The founders say people have stolen their ideas and name, which is trademarked. They have tried to keep quality high, focusing on placing their product in independent stores like the Berlin businesses Kensington Market and Cedar Mountain Stone and Mulch, not big box stores.

Standing in the room smelling of sawdust where the BioBrick is manufactured, Berlin’s state Sen. Terry Gerratana was excited. “This is beyond innovation,” she said. “This is genius.” On Dec. 11, Gerratana visited BioPellet LLC, a manufacturer of densified wood fuel to tour its operations and learn more about how it used the state’s Small Business Express Program. BioPellet makes BioBricks

to be burned in fireplaces and outdoor stoves — anywhere conventional wood can be used. The product burns cleaner and uses sawdust that would usually be thrown out. “We created this industry for North America,” Jason Blakeslee said, co-founder of the Berlin-based company. Eight years ago, Blakeslee and co-founder Steven Lanata brought technology over from Germany to create densified wood fuel. The manufacturing process begins outside at a large pile of sawdust. BioPellet buys waste sawdust from floor

Crafting provides break for town employees The Berlin Citizen

The first rule of the Town Hall Crafters is don’t talk about work. Period. If you talk about work, you have to leave. I learned this the hard way. Every Wednesday, some of the female employees who work at the Town Hall gather around the long table in the office of the Public Works Department. During their lunch hour from 1 to 2 p.m., the ladies put office work aside and pick up knitting needles, a half-finished quilt or a crochet hook. The women share crafting advice, relax from work and focus on the positive,

they tell me. The women around the table knit scarves and one works on a quilt -- a Christmas present for a family member. They didn’t want to share their names and they asked me not to take photos. This was crafting hour. One woman showed the group one of her latest projects: a table runner quilt. The women “oh” and “ah” over the pattern of red, green and tan triangles. Some of the women are retired and come to the crafting group to work in the company of other crafters. Word spread by word of mouth. A few weeks ago, one of the librarians dropped in, and announced she was joining the

crafting hour. The crafting group began organically a few years ago, the women tell me, and every week anywhere between three and 13 crafters sit around the table. Over the last few years, the group held a holiday raffle, auctioning off items they made to benefit the Youth and Family Services department as it provides holiday assistance. The raffle has grown every year. This holiday season, the women put 36 items in the raffle and raised $700. Director of Public Works Art Simonian walks through. “Show and tell, eh?” he remarks. He stops to talk to me

Listening and evolving secret to 25 years of Upbeat By Daniel Jackson

Upbeat Adviser Alice Mitchell said over the 25 years that Berlin’s Upbeat program existed, it has evolved and changed. Twenty-five years ago the Department of Education gave the high school a blank check: if the school could de-

gram held a breakfast Dec. 6 at the VFW to showcase the kinds of projects the 400 students in the program do. According to Mitchell, students in the club perform 125 service projects in the schools and community each year, such as helping the Kiwanis Club sell Christmas trees. “The more they do in the community, the more they feel a part of the community,” Mitchell said. Three times a year, students in Upbeat go away to Camp Woodstock for leadership training, such as public speaking, and how to run a meeting. Their fourth year in Upbeat is “their internship year,” Mitchell said, where the students break up into groups and work on various projects in the community. Take, for example, the program Upbeat runs at McGee Middle School. This year, the students revamped the program to better appeal to the younger students. Last year, the program where middle school stu-

Upbeat members talk about their projects at the Upbeat breakfast held recently. | (Daniel Jackson / The Berlin Citizen) dents could hang out in the gym every other Friday after school was not very popular, according to seniors Brittany Sullivan and Ryan Ogden, the two Upbeat members who manned the table at the recent breakfast. The program, dubbed “Drop-ins” kept losing money, and only 25 to 30 students would show up on a given night.

The high school students changed the program. First, they changed the name to “Y-zone,” short for “Youth Zone.” Then, they changed the setup and the rules. When Y-zone comes to McGee, half of the gym is reserved for some kind of sport, like basketball, the other half for a movie. See Upbeat / Page 12

Gone is the stand-alone building that would have housed a restaurant. Instead, a triangle of land in front of the Kensington Fire Department will be donated to the firemen so the 9/11 steel, now

Thursday, December 19, 2013

arranged in a temporary memorial in the fire department’s parking lot, will have a permanent site. The fire department, in turn, will donate some of the land it has in back of its building to the Depot Crossing development. The development will then donate some of the land that

sits by the Mattabasset River to the Berlin Land Trust. But a problem serious enough for the P&Z to reject CIL’s plan arose when CIL presented its plan for the design of the outside of the building. The bottom of the building would be sided with red, fiber cement lap siding. CIL

planned to side the top half with vinyl siding. A c c o r d i n g t o To w n Planner Hellyn Riggins, the town provides design guidelines and it lists the kind of materials buildings can use. Fiber cement lap siding is thick, sturdy and looks like wood — a quality building product. Other Farmington

Avenue businesses like Walgreens, Stop & Shop and Ratchford Eye Center are all built with the material. “We try to be consistent,” Riggins said. Chairman of the P&Z Bruce Moore didn’t like the vinyl siding. See Building / Page 12

Property owners are not allowed to shovel, throw or plow ice and snow from private property into, or across a public street, per local ordinances, according to the Public Works Department. Residents are responsible for clearing snow and ice from any public sidewalk fronting along their property. All sidewalks are to cleared and/or sanded with 24 hours of the completion of street plowing operations. It is the responsibility of the property owner fronting that sidewalk to make it safe for public travel. Failure to comply will subject the abutting property owner to a written warning and/or $100 fine as noted in the Town of Berlin Municipal Code. No parking bans become effective automatically (or at the discretion of the Director of Public Works) whenever there is an accumulation of four (4) inches or more of snow and ice on any of the streets of the town. No parking bans will terminate no sooner than eight (8) hours after any snowstorm, or as directed by the Director of Public Works. Any vehicle left parked on the street after such no bans ban has taken effect, will be towed and subject to a fine and all towing and storage charges. For more information, call the Public Works Department at (860) 828-7022.

Town recognized for energy efficiency Berlin is one of 35 Connecticut municipalities recognized recently for its participation in the statewide Clean Energy Communities program.

Faith

Churches, patriotism and ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic’ Washington, pledging our zealous aid in the war effort. My father had argued against American participation in the European conflict that had been raging for two years, and today many historians would unfairly label him an “isolationalist.” He detested Hitler, but had no affection for the British empire, its monarchy and rigid class system. Dad had expressed the hope that Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union that summer would lead to the collapse of both Nazism and Communism. Mom had told us that his main reason for opposing our intervention (and hers, too) was their four sons, all subject to military service if we became involved and the war dragged on. Our local pastor had a strong pacifist bent, as did many ministers of that era. After the attack on Pearl Harbor he and others were faced with the delicate decision of how to respond to this sudden crisis. Vigorously or reluctantly endorse the war? Or, continue to oppose it in prin-

ciple, probably in silence, while supporting the military personnel and their families? And how much patriotism should be incorporated into worship? That still can be an issue. A few would say “none,” that Christianity is an international faith that transcends national borders. More might suggest that surely American democracy, even American “exceptionalism,” must be favored by God. Others would argue for some middle course. Like many other ministers over the years, I wrestled with this question, particularly when I disagreed with our foreign policy. Yet, my patriotism runs deep, and when a national holiday came along, I would give it attention in the sermon and hymns. My favorites include “America, the Beautiful” and “A Song of Peace,” sung to that poignant tune “Finlandia” by composer Jean Sibelius. The patriotic selection that I most enjoy singing is “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” which congregations would belt out. However, I always sang it with mixed feelings. The lyrics serve as an exhilarating clarion call to join in holy battle against injustice. At the same time, is it blessing the brutality of war when it speaks of God’s wrath and

his “terrible swift sword”? Prior to the Civil War, a song to the same tune was popular at revivals in the South, whose opening stanza asked: “Say brothers, will you meet us on Canaan’s happy shore?” In 1861 Union troops replaced those words with “John Brown’s body lies a-moldering in the grave, but his soul is marching on!” John Brown, of course, had been executed after leading an effort to foment a slave rebellion by attacking Harpers

Ferry in 1859. He had been born in Torrington, Conn. In November 1861, Samuel Gridley Howe and his wife, Julia Ward Howe, a prominent poet, both avid abolitionists, visited Union encampments in Washington. When one Army unit began to sing “John Brown’s body,” a minister suggested to Mrs. Howe that she could pen more suitable lyrics. That night, she later wrote, “I awoke…and to my astonishSee Patriotism / Page 18

The season of Advent back in 1941 soon brought news in striking contrast to the Christmas message of “peace on earth.” On Dec. 7, 1941, we had attended church, enjoyed a big dinner, and were relaxing in the living room. Dad was napping in front of Ralph Lord the radio, Roy which was broadcasting symphonic music, when suddenly an impassioned announcer broke in. Pearl Harbor had been bombed. The next afternoon boys in our 8th grade met in their clubhouse upstairs in our barn, renamed our group the Defenders of Democracy, and wrote a letter to the two Vermont senators in

In a classroom, the students set up a Wii console for middle school students interested in playing video games. Y-zone sells refreshments, and the proceeds go back into the program. “We get at least 40 kids every night. I’ve seen 100,” Ogden said. Y-zone took a tip from Upbeat and started asking middle school students what they wanted to see at the hangouts. “We want them to have a say on what they’re going to do every Friday night,” Sullivan said. In addition to the hangout,

Upbeat members help tutor McGee students and give presentations about leadership and respect. “It’s like an Upbeat for middle school,” Sullivan said. Brian Thomas, a student coordinator, who manages the houses, like the McGee House, said each house works on a different project in the community. The Griswold House recently finished producing the craft fair at Griswold Elementary School and the Hospital House volunteers at the Hospital for Special Care. Thomas said his experience in Upbeat is busy, but rewarding. The high school senior said Upbeat gives him a sense of responsibility and maturity, a place for him to practice his poise.

Building From Page 7

“This is a very important building for us,” he told CIL. Legault said the company received a $1 million grant from the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority and maxed out a loan from United Bank to fund the project. Because the former builder used a modular construction, interior renovation costs two times what was anticipated. He could not find more funding for the project and to cut costs, the vinyl siding seemed a logical choice, Legault told the board. Moore said the P&Z always encouraged residents to a certain level of quality. Both CIL and the P&Z wanted a vote by that night’s meeting, but it didn’t look like the vote was going to happen. Mahoney and Legault left the room. When they returned, Mahoney told the P&Z the town could help CIL with the siding through its newly-formed grant program. The Facade and Landscaping Grant program, is a state-funded program which provides matching grants to improve the appearance of properties in the town’s Commercial Core District. Last month, Berlin gave grants to Good Cause Gifts at 384 Main St. and Michael S. Tosatti, DMD at 1067 Farmington Ave., the first two recipients of the grant program. The P&Z approved CIL’s plan on the condition that it works with town staff on resolving the siding issue. By mid-January, CIL will take the title to the property, said Legault. “The day after we take title is the day we start work,” he said.

Opinion

At the worst moment, you will take a powder By Mike Roberts Special to The Citizen

Black powder hunting in Connecticut has come along way since its inception back in the 70s. Using some of those black powder long guns for the hunting of whitetailed deer was an adventure in itself. One never knew if the charge of black powder was going to go off or not when a deer arrived on the hunting scene. Probably no one could at-

test to that more than your old outdoor writer. My first black powder rifle was what is referred to as a “Kit Gun” that I received one Christmas from my darlin’ Edna. Admittedly, it was a thing of beauty when it was finished thanks to my old friend Paul Cichowski, but back then everything else, especially the primer caps used to set off the charge of black powder, was as unreliable as the New England weather. The loading procedure

of a black powder rifle also left a lot to be desired. The first thing you did was to put a percussion cap on the primer nipple and fire the cap to make sure that the hole in the nipple was clear. You then loaded the rifle, and it was not considered to be loaded unless it had a percussion cap on it, so many hunters loaded them at home before they hit the woods. The amazing thing about this procedure is that when setting off the cap on an

Letters to the Editor Citizens deserve better

To the editor: If the voters give you the most votes, you will be the mayor. Period. However, the Democrats see the election in a different light; not only can’t you be the mayor, you can’t be the deputy mayor. Mayor Rochette was quoted saying: “We heard the voice from the voters” in the appointment of Mr. Murphy as deputy mayor. What happened to the citizens who voted for the top two vote-getters, both Republicans? They (we) will have no input for the next two years. The three Republicans might just as well stay home, or sit down and shut up. A reporter for a local newspaper was quoted in his reporting that “Mayor Salina won being mayor by being the top vote-getter among candidates.” That is the democratic way, not the Democrats’ way. Being a 50-year plus resident of Berlin, I remember Mayor Art Powers appointing

Republicans to key boards, using the best and brightest from town. As Democratic Town Committee Chairman Fred Jortner was quoted saying, the election of mayor and deputy mayor being Democrats was “politics 101.” Maybe the Town of Berlin and its citizen want and deserve something different. That, however, is two years away. A storm is coming that will give a true voice to the citizen. Dick Burkarth Kensington

empty rifle, it always ignited on the first try. For me, “Murphy’s Law” (anything that can go wrong will at the wrong time) always popped up its ugly head when it came time to shoot a deer. I had my first run-in with this particular quirk of black powder hunting back in the 70s while hunting Housatonic State Forest up in the Cornwall area of Connecticut. I had picked a spot that overlooked a couple of intersecting deer runs and figured I would simply sit and let the deer come to me. Back then, muzzleloaders had the first crack at deer and the state forest had enough hunters in it to keep some of the herd moving. It wasn’t too long before a small four-point buck came ambling up the trail towards me. I had been practicing how to thumb the hammer back on the rifle without allowing it to making a distinctive “CLACK” that accompanied cocking the hammer on a black powder rifle, so I was ready when that buck came into shooting range. It stopped to munch on some acorns down in front of me and I set my sights on the critters and squeezed the trigger. I was rewarded with a resounding “CLICK” as the hammer hit the %@*@*^ percussion cap, which did not ignite. The young buck’s head popped up and he looked squarely at me before disappearing into the surrounding forest! This was only a preview of some of the frustration I was about to experience in the early days of black powder hunting. Don’t go away, I have a bunch of them. Like I said, the main villain was the percussion cap back then, and I and a lot of other black powder hunters were experimenting with all kinds of makes and brands of the #11 percussion caps back then, looking for one that was virtually foolproof. But it wasn’t always the percussion cap. Murphy’s Law seemed to have its

hold on my entire rifle and everything that made it dysfunctional. Another time I had a permit to hunt Skiff Mountain on a piece of property owned by Northeast Utilities, but managed by the DEEP. I had scouted the area for both turkey and deer and really liked the area. That muzzleloader season I was ready to harvest my first deer. I had gotten up early to make the one-hour trip to my hunting area, and had loaded my muzzleloader at home before departing for Skiff Mountain. An old friend of mine, Jack Seitlinger, had made me a nifty brass ramrod for loading my muzzleloader to replace a wooden one that came with the muzzleloader. I entered the Skiff Mountain woods ready for action that morning just knowing I was going to get my first black powder deer. That’s when Murphy’s Law popped up his ugly head again. I had scouted the area quite thoroughly and knew just where I wanted to hunt, so I made my way to the spot in the early morning darkness. As it began to get lighter I glanced at my shooting iron to give it a last check and then I saw it: My ramrod was missing from its holding slot on my rifle! I knew I had put it back after I had loaded the gun at home, so what could have happened to it? I figured that I had not seated the ramrod properly into the holding slot on the rifle and it had slipped out during my dark trek to where I wanted to hunt. Now I was in a quandary. I had one shot in the rifle, but what if the deer I shot required another round? For me, the solution was simple. I decided not to hunt that morning and headed dejectedly out of the woods, kicking myself for making such a dumb mistake. See Powder / Page 24

Officers honored for Boston Marathon help By Dave Collins Associated Press

MERIDEN (AP) —Two Connecticut police officers who helped victims of the Boston Marathon bombings last April were among dozens of state and local officers honored Dec. 12 for saving lives and other brave acts. Montville Officer Karen Moorehead and state Trooper Jeffrey Menino received medals for meritorious service at a ceremony at the Connecticut State Police Training Academy in Meriden. Moorehead and Menino were off-duty and near the marathon finish line on April 15 when two bombs exploded. Three people died and more than 260 were injured. The two officers were cited for helping 10 severely wounded victims amid a dan-

Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman praised all the award winners as well as police officers across the state. “Every day you look danger in the face in order to protect the residents of

Connecticut,” Wyman said. State police Detective Scott Wisner received the Medal of Honor for his actions during a shootout with two suspected robbers in Westbrook in April. Wisner was shot in the left ear and left shoulder during the incident. Wisner’s cruiser and the suspects’ car crashed during a chase and came to rest only feet from each other. State police said the suspects, Sebastian Award and Jonathan Alvarado, both of Deep River, opened fire on Wisner from only four feet away and wounded him, but Wisner managed to return fire and wound both suspects. Other officers arrived at the scene including state police Sgt. Keith Graham, who fatally shot Alvarado when Alvarado reached for a gun, police said. Award survived. Graham and several other

officers also received awards for their actions. Two Seymour officers, Sgt. David Parratt and Patrolman James Duda, were honored with medals for live-saving for stopping a woman who was strangling an infant. The infant turned blue and began to lose consciousness but survived. Trooper First Class Joseph Russo received a Medal for Outstanding Service for creating a computerized simulation of a car crash that killed two people. The simulation became the first to be entered into evidence in a Connecticut criminal court proceeding, paving the way for using computer simulations as evidence in the future. Off icials also honored Crystal Crane, from state police Troop F in Westbrook, as dispatcher of the year.

the Yale University School of Medicine, stems from the first comprehensive study on youth homelessness in Connecticut, advocates say. It was based on interviews with 98 people younger than 24 in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and New London. The report offered sharp criticism of Connecticut policies, saying that “no state system or institution takes ownership or obligation.” A spokesman for the Department of Children and Families did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Gordon estimates that 11,700 young people in Connecticut are homeless based on numbers nationally and in the Northeast. Advocates say only 15 shelter beds are available in Connecticut for those younger than 18 and boys are not allowed in family shelters. Homeless kids often consider suicide, trade sex for money and a place to sleep, and often don’t even see

themselves as homeless, the report said. Because of their age, they are vulnerable to assaults on streets and at adult shelters, which have a high prevalence of health problems such as HIV/AIDS and substance abuse. And for nearly a quarter of homeless youth, their first sexual encounter occurs at age 12 or younger. Two groups account for homeless youth and children: homeless families with children and youth with no accompanying adult. Unaccompanied children and youth account for as many as 1 million to 3 million youth or children, or 1 percent of the urban homeless population. Experts cannot easily get an accurate count, saying that being young and homeless is often the same as being invisible. Youngsters with nowhere to live “couch surf” at friends’ homes for short periods and are counted differently or not at all by state agencies. “We’ve had some chal-

lenges getting our heads around the numbers,” said Robert Pulster of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness. Jessica Ferreira, a New Britain advocate, said she was forced to move to a shelter in South Norwalk after her parents rejected her. “My parents wanted nothing to do with me,” she told about 100 participants at a gathering of advocates and others at the Capitol. Before the shelter, she said, she and her boyfriend tried unsuccessfully to live with his stepmother. “Things fell through the cracks,” Ferreira said.

Town approves applications for grant program Press Release

Preventing blindness A simple, non-invasive eye screening can save the eyesight of thousands of Connecticut preschoolers. Thanks to Connecticut’s Lions, the screening is free. The screenings are for two diseases: strabismus and amblyopia. While they may be difficult to pronounce, they have a devastating effect on children – who can be blinded if left untreated. Often called “Lazy Eye,” amblyopia affects three to five percent of children. Strabismus or “crossed eye” affects a similar percentage. Both can be treated most successfully in child younger than 7 years old. After that, the cost of treatment rises significantly while the effectiveness of the treatments evaporate. Lions have invested in the latest PediaVision technolSee Health / Page 19

Patriotism

Many other words have been sung to the same melody. For years “Solidarity Forever” served as an anthem of the labor movement. Children return from summer camp singing: “I wear my pink pajamas in the summer when it’s hot!” We used to shout out another parody back in elementary school. The chorus began: “Glory, glory, hallelujah, teacher hit me with a ruler.” Fortunately, I can’t remember the rest of it - something about a gun, a loaded .44. Interested in more information on this topic? Check out the engaging new book titled “The Battle Hymn of the Republic: A Biography and the Song That Marches On,” written by John Stauffer and Benjamin Soskis.

ment found that the wishedfor lines were arranging themselves in my brain.” She quickly scribbled them down, and they met with wide acclaim throughout the North. Once bitter memories of the Civil War faded away, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” became popular across the country and is included today in numerous patriotic observances. Some controversy is likely to continue to surround the song. Jesus is prominent in its lyrics and opposition to public use of sectarian texts increases as America’s secular and non-Christian population grows. Those with pacifist inclinations remain uncomfortable with its seeming endorsement of warfare along with its generous dose of apocalyptic imagery.

Youth wrestling program a key building block By Nate Brown The Berlin Citizen

These are not your father’s Redcoats-in-training. These kids understand how to grapple, the importance of staying fit, and – quite possibly most important for any aspiring wrestler – how to properly wear a singlet. Thanks to the Berlin Youth Wrestling Program, boys and girls from kindergarten all the way through eighth grade have the opportunity to learn how to compete in one of the Olympics’ most storied sports, and continue to build upon the impressive tradition of Berlin wrestling. “I think that wrestling does a lot in this day and age,” said Roger Moss, the program’s head coach. “With obesity being such a major issue in our country, a sport like wrestling teaches weight control, and proper eating helps kids to understand their bodies better.” Apart from staying fit, the program has become a wonderful feeder program for the high school’s wrestling program. Wrestling has become a predominate sport in town that has sent

countless athletes to both the state finals and State Open over the years. While most of that is due in large part to Redcoat head coach Jim Day, the Minutemen youth program has helped prepare Day’s future troops. “I think that consistency in coaching in wrestling is a very important element of the sport, and that’s why we’ve had success for so long. An arm bar could be a different move to (another coach), so if you’re constantly getting told different moves or different terminology, it gets confusing for a kid,” said Moss, in his 17th season as the Minutemen’s top dog. “By us being consistent in having the coaching staff that we have, and teaching it the same way, and calling the moves the same, year in and year out, helps the kids to understand. “We tie into the high school, as well, so what they call it at the high school, we call it the same thing at the elementary school level and middle school level, so they’re not having to relearn a term.” Still, kids won’t be bored by proper terminology in their time with the Minutemen. Moss and his fellow coaches have worked to provide an inviting atmosphere that entices kids

to remain with the program. “Wrestling is a demanding sport, so if we started them at the intensity level of kindergarten, first, second, or third grade that we would at a high school level, not many of these kids would make it to the high school. Our ultimate goal is that these kids wrestle in high school. So we do whatever we can to keep it fun, keep it light, keep them wanting to be involved, and keep them feeling part of a team,” Moss said. “That being said, we want to build on the skills so that by the time they get to the high school, they have a good, solid foundation and beyond.” Besides contests and games to get the younger kids acclimated, the program –which has been a member of USA Wrestling Connecticut since 2005 –teaches basic skills such as takedowns, stand-ups and breakdowns. Through each practice, Moss and his staff look to build upon what the kids know as they hope to better train certain moves to muscle memory. While most kids are aware of the sport of wrestling and some of its techniques, there are the occasional few who believe they’ll be the next

John Cena or Stone Cold Steve Austin, professional wrestling stars. Moss is quick to point out that this is not the case. “For some parents, the only thing they see about wrestling here is MMA on television or professional wrestling,” Moss said. “So that’s why we put the idea out there, so the mom who’s concerned her son is going to be flying off ropes is set at ease.” Another issue parents won’t have to worry about that sometimes arises in wrestling is cutting weight. The Minutemen program does not take part in that practice. “At our level, we don’t deal with kids cutting weight. It’s just natural exercise, work …so we don’t focus on weight loss,” said Moss. “It’s just a natural thing, I think. That’s something they focus on in high school, and we don’t worry about.” Instead, focus is placed on fundamentals and having fun. For those interested, registration for the program –which began in late November and runs until early March –is still available. More information can be found at www.berlinwrestling. com or by contacting Moss at (860) 828-9818.

BHS girls hoop off to difficult start By Nate Brown The Berlin Citizen

Aside from execution and chemistry, effort is one of the more crucial x-factors towards winning basketball games. Although the execution and chemistry haven’t been there, the Lady Redcoats’ (02) effort has given a glimpse of how good the team can be when the girls put all three factors together. “Effort-wise, they’re working very hard,” coach Sheila King said. “Going into this season, we anticipated a progression of getting better as we went along, and that’s what we’re looking forward to. And the girls have given us every indication from their hard work that that’s the direction we will head.” Berlin lost its first two games to stiff competition

in E.O. Smith (50-30) and Middletown (53-39). While the final counts haven’t been pretty, there has already been some improvement. After getting blown out by 20 in their opening loss, the Redcoats narrowed the gap to 14 points their next time out, against the Dragons. “We only have one returning starter. They’re getting used to playing with each other, so it’s been rough offensively, getting in sync, and trying to find a scorer for us,” King said. That returner, senior guard Alicia Maule, has been Berlin’s go-to scorer. She led the Lady Redcoats with seven points against E.O. Smith and 14 against Middletown. Aside from Maule, the team has received solid contributions from senior forward Brittany Sullivan and fresh-

man guard Nina D’Amato. Sullivan has scored six points in each contest, while D’Amato burst onto the scene with 13 points against Middletown. While the contributions have been nice, the Redcoats have yet to find a consistent lineup. Both Maule and Sullivan have served as starters, while D’Amato has served as the team’s first option off the bench. Other players who are being looked at for an ideal starting five are juniors Sam Bilinsky (forward), Abby U n d e r wo o d ( f o r wa rd ) , Alyssa Germano (guard) and freshman Alyssa Grant (forward). “Size-wise, she would be ideal at the three, but we’ve put her at the four spot, and now she’s moved to the five spot,” said King of the 5-foot-9 Grant. “She is small

for the position she’s playing, but what has really stood out for us is the grit she’s willing to play with.” Grant and Bilinsky (also 5-foot-9) are the team’s tallest players. Fortunately, Berlin has great athleticism throughout its roster to make up for its lack of size. Unfortunately, it comes with a price. “We have a lot of players that can play a lot of positions,” King said. “Sullivan is playing the three, the four, and the five. Underwood is playing the three and the four, when she probably should be a two. So we have combinations due to the athleticism, but we don’t have that true five, or that true four.” Although the start to the season hasn’t been ideal, King is confident in her players’ abilities and the patience

of her coaching staff. In the opening weeks, the team has been quick to pick up on everything the coaches have thrown its way. “They’re learning offensive sets, and that’s something that can only get better,” King said. “We’ve installed some new sets with these new girls, but it’s a learning process and it only leads to good things, and that’s what we expect.” King is confident the team will right the ship before long; and the coach has history on her side. The girls program has qualified for the state tournament every year since 2002. “It’s a long season; we’re only two games in. They’re not discouraged. We’re not going to get discouraged, certainly,” King said. “We’ll go on a winning streak. You’ll see.”

Three state champs crowned in football ciacsports.com Three Connecticut state high school football champions were crowned this past weekend. The fourth, and final, champ is slated to be determined Thursday, Dec. 19. Class S NEW BRITAIN -- Almost as soon as it had begun, it was all over. Ansonia snagged two takeaways on Woodland’s first two offensive plays and converted both into touchdowns as the Chargers claimed the Class S championship with a 51-12 victory over the Hawks on a frigid Friday night at Central Connecticut State University’s Arute Field. Ansonia (15-0) became the first team in Connecticut history to play and win 15 games. The Chargers also won their record 19th state championship--including their third straight--and extended their winning streak to 43 games. Woodland (12-3) dug itself a hole right off the bat as Tanner Kingsley’s first pass wobbled into the arms of Tyler Bailey for an interception. Arkeel Newsome cashed in on the turnover with a 6-yard touchdown run

lead. Between those scores came Bailey’s second interception of Kingsley, this one in the end zone, to end the Hawks’ momentum. Newsome concluded his record-setting career with 259 yards and four touchdowns on 34 carries. He also threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Tom Majchrzak in the fourth quarter. Newsome sits atop record to make it a 7-0 lead less than charts for all-time rushing 3 minutes into the game.

Scams targeting utility customers nationally continue to affect Connecticut Light & Power customers, with the most recent version targeting Spanish-speaking customers. The scam involves prepaid “Green Dot” VISA credit cards. Callers claiming to represent CL&P may contact customers, telling them their service is scheduled to be shut off, then advising them to make a payment by purchasing an untraceable pre-paid debit “Green Dot” VISA card. Customers are then asked to call another phone number where information is obtained from the credit card and the monetary value is removed from the “Green Dot” VISA card. “If a customer gets a call of this nature, he or she can verify that it is CL&P by asking for some basic information about the account. Our customer service representatives will always be able to provide the name on the account, the account address, and the exact past-due balance,” said Penni Conner, Chief Customer Officer at Northeast Utilities, parent company of CL&P. “If the caller cannot provide that information, the call is not from one of our employees.

the buck as it slowly fed my way. This was going to be too easy, I thought. The buck was about 35 yards out when it gave me a broadside shot at its vitals. I settled the sights on the buck, squeezed the trigger and the cap exploded with a resounding “POP”! But that was it. The powder did not ignite! The buck snapped its head up looking for the source of the cap igniting as I fumbled into my pocket for another cap. Having found one, I again put it on the nipple of the muzzleloader and again took aim at the buck as it stood riveted, looking for the source of the exploding cap. Once again I touched off the round and was again rewarded with the cap and not the powder charge going off. This time the buck had nailed me and was headed

And no, I never found the ramrod. Had enough yet? I’ve got more. Once again while hunting Skiff Mountain, I was hunting the side of a mountain, slowly making my way back to where I had parked my truck. I had paused next to an old stonewall that cut through the old farm property I was on. The area had returned to forest over the years yet there were many of these old stonewalls crisscrossing the woods and I liked to use them to hunt along. A touch of movement up ahead of me caught my eye. It was a small six-point buck. My heart started to race a bit as I settled down to watch

off in another direction as I stood there wondering what the heck had just happened? Two caps and no powder ignition! After the buck had vacated the area, I decided to try it one more time and I kid you not, the powder charge went off. I know for a fact that this has happened to many muzzleloader hunters in the early years of the sport. Just ask them. As the years progressed, so did the quality and reliability of the black powder rifles that were used for hunting. In fact, today they are state of the art and as reliable as any regular rifle being used for hunting large game. I finally relented and gave up my first muzzleloader, but I did get to take one deer with it in the Housatonic Forest before retiring it. My next black powder rifle was a Lyman Tradesman that I purchased from Blue Trail Range and I found it to be quite a bit better for my hunting forays. I took four more deer with that rifle before I purchased the one I use today. Today, muzzleloader hunting in Connecticut and surrounding states is no longer a trip into frustration. The guns are lot easier to use and their dependability is

Aresimowicz said that municipal police departments depend on the funds from the seized assets to fight crime and balance their budgets. The CPCA is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of Connecticut residents; to aiding other government bodies in the administration of justice, and ensuring that all are treated equally before the law.

unbelievable. Starting Dec. 11, Connecticut deer hunters will be using muzzleloaders to harvest some deer for the winter months ahead. Private land black powder hunters will be able to hunt from Dec. 11-31. They must have the proper private land permits and they will be able to take two deer, one antlerless and one either sex, or they may fill both tags with antlerless deer.

State land hunters will be able to hunt state lands from Dec. 11-24 a one-tag limit on a deer of either sex. One of the best things about the state land muzzleloader hunting is that as long as you have a state land muzzleloader permit you can hunt just about any piece of state land that allows black powder hunting (page 38 to 35 of your 2013 CT Hunting & Trapping Guide). That’s it gang, good hunting! See ya’ and God Bless America and watch over our troops wherever they may be serving.
