‘Link Crew’ helps freshmen navigate CHS By Eve Britton

The Cheshire Citizen

About 400 nervous and excited freshmen crowded into the west gym at Cheshire High School on the morning of Aug. 23 to get acquainted with their new academic home. “I’m not too nervous,” said freshman Liana Quinones. “I’m ready. My brother just graduated so he told me it is not that bad.” Wearing sneakers, shorts and T-shirts, the class of 2017 was led in cheers and chants by Assistant Principal Maureen Reed, with the help

of 80 junior and senior volunteers and 10 sophomore assistant volunteers. Reed and the volunteers wore bright orange shirts with “The Link Crew” written boldly in white. “It helped me as a freshman, and I wanted to help others,” said Abby Kaczmarek, senior link volunteer. “It’s scary being new. It’s a big new school and this helps you feel more comfortable.” Reed stood on the bleachers yelling drills through a microphone. Students, organized in massive lines across the gym by birth date, were told to tell

their life story to their partner in one minute, tell their life stories backward in one minute, clasp hands, high five, yell, “whoop,” and other team-building exercises. “I’m doing this to get the freshmen used to the new school because in the beginning it’s scary,” said Link member Ryan Pierpoint, a junior. “I know I was a little scared and I want them to know there’s nothing to be worried about.” But some students were a little worried. “I’m a little nervous.

David Kiesling and his daughter, Audrey, stopped at Hines Hardware store Aug. 24 to look at a chair. This was not “just a chair,” but a one-of-a-kind, stylized creation. The chair is one of 15, uniquely decorated chairs that have been placed at various businesses throughout town as part of the [CHAIR] ity Project, a fundraiser for a local charity. It’s also been a fun summer game for the Kieslings and other Cheshire families as they attempt to get to every location and see each chair. The idea is the brainchild of Gary LeClerc, owner of [RE]new Furniture, of Cheshire, and his friend, artist David Verdosci. At the time LeClerc opened his new business in May, he “wanted to do something that would involve local businesses and the arts to help a town charity.” Artsplace and Art Heals fit his vision. The chairs will be auctioned off at a special event on Sept. 15 at [RE]new Furniture. All proceeds will go to Art Heals, the therapeutic art therapy program for homebound individuals. The chairs, built from shipping pallets donated by Cheshire’s

These chairs will be auctioned Sept. 15 to benefit Artsplace. | Photo courtesy of PeachandBee.com photography R&R Pallet Corporation, align with LeClerc’s mission to recycle, reuse and repurpose. “We created value out of something where there was none originally,” he said. Joan Pilarczyk, Artsplace director, said they are grateful to Greg “and thrilled to be included.” The majority of the chairs, with the exception of David Verdosci’s chair, were designed and hand-decorated by Artsplace teachers. “It’s wonderful. It’s a winwin situation for everyone,” she said. “Artsplace teachers jumped in right away to claim a chair,” said Pilarczyk, adding that she managed to claim a chair, too. “Artsplace teachers spent a Sunday morning in July painting chairs together,” Pilarczyk said.

Pugh, who was very excited to do the project. “It was a lot of fun to spend time together, to create together and support one another’s ideas,” Pugh said. For her chair, she drew inspiration from Gustaf Klint with elements from “The Kiss,” and used blue swirls to evoke Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night.” “There’s a surprise hidden on the back of the chair,” she said. “You have to look for it.” For the kids, in addition to looking for the locations and seeing the chairs, the added “fun” in this fundraiser is a CHAIRhunt.

Preparation for new standards yields slight decline in test scores By Julie Sopchak

Special to The Citizen

Statewide, test results for the Connecticut Mastery Test and Connecticut Academic Performance Test showed trends of improving 10th grade scores, but declining elementary and middle school scores. The CMT is administered to students in grades 3-8, and the CAPT is given to sophomores in high school. The tests are designed to best estimate if a student meets or exceeds grade level expectations. Jennifer Alexander, CEO for the Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now, released a statement saying this year’s results reveal some positive trends, but also some negative ones. “We need to do better for our kids to ensure that they are prepared for college and careers,” Alexander said. Some districts found that realigning their curriculum

with the upcoming Common Core State Standards may have impacted CMT scores, but not in a way that exhibits any major red flags. Cheshire Superintendent Greg Florio said there were some slight drops for CMT scores, but the changes come from different groups of students. “If you look at year over year for the same grade, there were some drops,” Florio conceded. “But if you look at cohorts of students as they went from one grade level to the next grade level, there’s less change.” In Plainville, Superintendent Jeffrey Kitching said he was pleased with students’ performances overall considering the district has been preparing for the new Common Core State Standards. “We’ve been gearing up for the last year and a half now for the Common Core and the changes and assessment that are coming,” Kitching

said. “So we certainly did not spend as much time and concern over the CMTs this year as we have because, really, we’ve been working on realigning our own assessments to get ready for the Common Core.” For School District 13, wh i c h c ove r s D u rh a m and Middlefield, interim Superintendent Ernest Perlini said CMT scores were a “mixed bag” with seventh and eighth grade classes showing good growth, but slight dropoffs with grades 3-6. “Overall I’d say our scores are a little bit better than what was predicted and shown at the state level,” Perlini said. Kitching said a whole new math program implemented last year isn’t really aligned to the CMT, but rather to the Common Core. Though he said middle school math scores were up across the boards for the district. “Our efforts have really been around that, not as specifically on the content of

the CMTs as they have in the past,” Kitching said. Florio also said CMT math could have been affected by preparing for the new alignment. “We have been focusing on implementing the math standards,” he said. “So that’s where we probably saw a little bit more of a drop.” Southington Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi Jr. is

pleased Southington didn’t follow the trends mapped out by ConnCAN and exhibited strong scores in both CMT and CAPT. He did say he thinks the declines shown can be attributed to the transition to the Common Core. “The message I’ll share with all that convocation is that the benefit to our methSee Scores / Page 3 30328R

odology of work is we don’t teach to the test, we attempt to offer great instruction in all classrooms,” Erardi said. “And when you do that, you’re not predicated on what test you’re taking as you’re preparing children for all opportunities, I think that’s the reason why we did so well.” For the CAPT, Kitching and Florio both said their districts did well, showing slight gains. Florio said the best improvements were in science and math. “Science and math both went up to the highest level I think we’ve had ever in terms of students at goal,” Florio said. “And the other scores pretty much were flat, stayed the same.” “We continue to see a positive progression at our high school CAPT scores so

we were thrilled with that,” Kitching said. Perlini said there were “nice improvements” for CAPT scores this year. Math showed an 11.8 percentage point increase, 13.2 in science, 11.2 in reading, and 3.9 in writing. “When we compare it to last year’s tenth graders, we show some solid improvement,” Perlini said.

Council debates truck on eve of vote By Eve Britton

The Cheshire Citizen

The Town Council, on the eve of deciding on a capital budget, argued at a special meeting Aug. 26, about whether to buy a $980,000 aerial ladder truck. Fire Chief Jack Casner requested that an aerial ladder truck be put in this coming year’s budget because the town has only one. Town Manager Michael Milone proposed the truck be purchased this coming year. But councilors were divided, with a majority appearing to favor purchasing the truck during the fiscal year that begins July 2015. “I’m going to make one last pitch. I feel very strongly in favor of reinstating $980,00

for a ladder truck,� said Democrat Peter Talbot. “We’ve been putting it off four, five years now. It’s an issue of public safety.� Chairman and Republican Tim Slocum, who is opposed to the idea of adding the truck to the first year of the five year capital budget, said he did not think it is a matter of safety. “I don’t think it’s an issue of safety,� he said adding the town can call on help from surrounding towns. Talbot countered that he didn’t think it was an issue of people dying, but more a matter that the voters should have a say in it. “I’m also thinking, God forbid, that if anything disastrous does happen, do we want it coming back to the

decision of nine people?� Talbot said. He added that Casner’s recommendation should carry some weight, at which point Republican David Schrumm said it shouldn’t. “People have been asking us to put in a north end firehouse for 25 years and we don’t just take their word to do it,� Schrumm said. “We don’t do that.� Democrat Michael Ecke disagreed with Schrumm’s assessment. “That’s your opinion, not ours,� he said. In addition, the council accepted the proposal for a $3.2 million tension membrane fabric pool structure to be put out to referendum. In other action, the Town Council agreed to a new phone system for the school system. Management Services Director Vincent Masciana had made a plea to the council for a phone in every classroom throughout the district

that would dial out. Masciana had explained it was a critical issue for emergency purposes, that each classroom teacher be able to dial 911, in case of an emergency. Currently, many classrooms have handsets but they just go to the principal’s office or paging system. The addition of the phones will cost $150,000. The council also discussed the proposed bathrooms and concession stand structures, agreeing in the plan to allocate $350,000 in this fiscal year to pay to totally rebuild the buildings to make them handicap accessible.

Hartley said she was thrilled with the turnout and there were at least 200 people with parents. Mr. Magic kept the attention of parents and children in his humor-filled, quick-moving, and interactive magic act. The audience appeared amazed when Mr. Magic called on parents and children by name. It took some time, but everyone played along, so the rest of the audience didn’t figure it out until at least halfway through the show. “I’m just surprised he remembered the names he made up for those people all night long,” said one mother in the audience. Other tricks were extremely clever. Some children were positively dumbstruck by Mr. Magic’s prestidigitation, a never-ending supply of card, rope, and handkerchief tricks, illusions with

Children who clapped the loudest and remembered to shout the Summer Reading program mantra, “Dig into Reading,” could win a grand prize plush rabbit toy from Mr. Magic. At the program’s end, library staff handed out prizes that included ice cream certificates to the raffle winners. Hartley said she’s been involved in the library’s Summer Reading program for more than 30 years, and this year’s enrollment, 836 children, was one of the best she’s ever seen. The program allows children to read what they like, Hartley said. Each year, there is a T-shirt embellished with the program theme, which is used as an incentive for participation. The coveted shirt is bright yellow this season and shows the Cheshire Library cat with a sunflower and a shovel. Youth librarian Nicole Dolat said the shirt’s artwork by librarian Laurie Lee is always a big hit with the kids. Shirts are given to children who read at least six books. Additional prizes are given to children who read a dozen books. Like us on Facebook: TheCheshireCitizen

don’t know that many kids here,” said Michael Stickney, who previously attended St. Bridget parochial school. “I know some kids from sports and I’m excited to meet new people. There was only like 32 people in my old class.” This is the seventh year that the school has been “linking” freshmen with up-

perclassmen, Reed said. “It’s a high energy program that gets freshmen comfortable with the school,” Reed said breathlessly. “It’s a great program because it also teaches leadership to the juniors and seniors.” One of the biggest fears for incoming freshmen is getting lost in the labyrinth of hallways and levels. “I got lost on my way in, but someone led me here,” said Robert Pellegrino. “I’m excited about exploring the new school.” The volunteer Link advisers as-

signed Friday will guide them for the whole year, Reed said. Freshmen were broken down into groups of 12 to 14 and taken into classrooms where the Link advisers gave them their class schedules and showed how to figure out their daily routine. They were also given a tour of the school and received locks for their lockers. “I’m nervous, just about the change and how I’m going to do in school,” Lily Reeves said as she filled out her daily routine form. “How I do matters more now, for the future.”

Conn. homeless reporting uneven NEW HAVEN (AP) — Connecticut towns are unevenly counting the number of homeless school-aged children, hampering efforts to provide help. The Register Citizen reports that 93 school districts, more than half in the state, reported no homeless students in 2011-2012, the last year that data were available. Killingly, population of 16,000, reported more homeless students than did Bridgeport. School districts have identified only 2,804 homeless students. That’s up 50 percent from 2008, but a fraction of the 13,000 in other estimates. Some advocates question whether school districts are failing to completely identify homeless students to avoid a sometimes costly legal requirement for transportation and other services. The state gets about $500,000 in annual federal funding that’s distributed in school district grants.

“Homelessness exists in practically every community, and any school district that says otherwise is not in touch with the realities of the lives of the students,” said Jerry Jones, executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless. The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness reported more than 12,000 residents used a shelter in 2007. Of that number, 1,561 were children. Defining homelessness is not simple. Education law defines it as waiting to be placed in foster care and “couch-surfing” with friends due to the lack of a stable home. “Some districts are more responsive than others,” Jones said. Even those who are trying to measure the scale of the problem will often overlook some students. “There are other districts that don’t feel this is their problem and frankly minimize the problem,” Jones said.

NEW HAVEN (AP) — Dead trees are posing a potential hazard to people visiting many Connecticut parks, but state workers say understaffing is causing delays in fixing the problems. Several New Haven Register reporters visited parks around the state in late July and early August and found numerous dead trees near trails, the newspaper reported. Several employees of the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection told the newspaper that more staffing is needed to remove dead and ailing trees.

Indian Well State Park in Shelton and Osbornedale State Park in Derby. Staff at Sleeping Giant State Park are on the lookout for hazardous trees and branches, especially around picnic areas, said Jill Scheibenpflug, a park maintainer at Sleeping Giant. “We try to do the best we can to remove any hazardous trees near the trails,” she said. “If it isn’t done, we just haven’t gotten to it.” She added, “You can have a tree that looks fine, and the next day it falls down.” On Aug. 4 in Queens, N.Y., a pregnant woman sitting on a park bench died when a tree fell on her. On July 21, a falling tree killed a 21-year-old woman at Yosemite National Park in California. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection does its best to maintain trail areas in parks and remove dead trees, said agency spokesman Dwayne Gardner, who said park visitors who see tree problems should report them to the state.

The Housing Authority Insurance Group is headed toward final approvals in its quest to build a new 40,000-square foot facility on Commerce Court. The proposal for the $8 to $10 million structure has received initial planning and zoning approvals and been OK’d by the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission The final site plan is expected to go before the Planning and Zoning Commission next month. The company is also working with the state Department of Transportation on traffic issues. The Cheshire-based company has been located on Commerce Court since 1987. “They’re already here and we want to make sure they stay here,” said Bill Voelker, planning director. HAI provides insurance

for public and low-income housing, insuring close to 1,000 housing companies, according to Bill Lewellyn, HAI senior vice president. Since 1987, the company has grown from 15 to 162 employees, company officials said. “It’s a company of high quality,” said Jerry Sitko, Economic Development Director. “This is great news for them because they’ve been renting temporary spaces.”

An effort involving two countries and 12 states will unite for one cause, was expected to bring 10,000 motorcyclists and car enthusiasts to Connecticut for Dream Ride 2013 held over the past weekend. Bozzuto’s Inc., a food distributor based in Cheshire, has been sponsoring “Dream R i d e” fo r t h e S p e c i a l Olympics since 2001. “Every year we’ve seen the numbers increase, but this year, with the nice weather, we expect the numbers to be really high,” said Chrissa Caramia, manager of cause-related marketing for Bozzuto’s. The ride began this past Aug. 23 in the south in West Palm Beach, Fla., and in the north, in Montreal, and in other Canadian provinces. Motorcycles and classic and exotic cars converged at the Farmington Club starting Aug. 23, with staggered arrivals through Aug. 25. All donations raised in each state will go to Special Olympics organizations in that state, Caramia said. “Michael Bozzuto (the company’s owner) has a passion for giving back and a passion for motorcycles. It’s taking his passions and putting them together,” she said. “Special Olympics is just one of the charities we give to.” Since its inception , Dream Ride has raise $1,725,000 for Special Olympics.

Activities over the weekend included stops at The Farmington Club for food sampling from many of Bozzuto’s vendors, bounce houses, animal rescue groups with adoptable animals and steak and chicken meals, Caramia said. “It’s a good time, really, really exciting for families and spectators,” she said. There will also be a police escorted ride through parts of the state from Farmington up to Riverton and down through West Simsbury, back to Farmington. Norm LeBlanc, event coordinator for Trantolo & Trantolo, of Hartford, coordinates the ride. “It’s a great event for Special Olympics.

Casner said they can call for a ladder truck from a neighboring town, but it can take time for the truck to arrive. “On a good day, at least 20 minutes to get here,” he said. “And we can only expect them to give what they can, when they can.” An older ladder truck, which has an open cab and came to the town in the 1970s, is parked in front of the Public Works building. The working ladder truck is kept at the main firehouse on Maple Street. “It’s a relic, with the open

cab it’s a throwback to the ’60s or ’70s,” Milone said. “Can you imagine driving in snowstorm with an open cab?” Casner is also working on a study to examine where fire services are most needed and, with current movement to the north end of town, whether another station will be needed there. The firefighting force is primarily made up of volunteers, with a few paid staff who work primarily in administrative roles. ebritton@record-journal.com (203) 317-2208 Twitter: @EveBritton

Company looks to consolidate operations By Eve Britton

The Cheshire Citizen

The Housing Authority Insurance Group is headed toward final approvals in its quest to build a new 40,000-square foot facility on Commerce Court. The proposal for the $8 to $10 million structure has received initial planning and zoning approvals and been OK’d by the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission. The final site plan is expected to go before the Planning and Zoning Commission next month. The company is also working with the state Department of Transportation on traffic issues. The Cheshire-based company has been located on Commerce Court since 1987. “They’re already here and we want to make sure they

stay here,” said Bill Voelker, planning director. HAI provides insurance for public and low-income housing, insuring close to 1,000 housing companies, according to Bill Lewellyn, HAI senior vice president. Since 1987, the company has grown from 15 to 162 employees, company officials said. “ It ’s a c o m p a ny o f high quality,” said Jerry Sitko, Cheshire Economic Development Director. “This is great news for them because they’ve been renting temporary spaces.” HAI now occupies three separate locations in Cheshire and is looking to house its entire operation under one roof, Lewellyn said. “We’ve expanded the business quite a bit over the last couple of years,” Lewellyn said. “We should

have 175 employees by the end of this year and with the new building, should be able to expand to 240.” He added that most of the employees live within a 30-mile radius of the company and they expect to hire locally. If the plan passes PZC in September, Lewellyn said, the company hopes to break ground in October and have the site work and foundation done before the ground freezes. He said he expects it to be ready for occupancy by next summer or early fall. ebritton@record-journal.com (203) 317-2208 Twitter: @EveBritton

Commentary

Banned Books Week is coming soon Sept. 2228 is Banned Books Week, organized in part by the American Library Association. It is a time Chase to celebrate our freedom to read by calling attention to attempts to censor books throughout America in the past year. It reminds us that our freedom to read cannot be taken for granted; we need to defend it from attacks even today. During the week, libraries will be sponsoring programs and featuring displays of

books that have been challenged. The most frequently challenged book during 2012 was the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. The series is aimed at boys in grades 2-4 who are reluctant readers. It uses simple cartoon drawings and stories about school pranks that youngsters find “immediately engaging.” Many people believe that censorship is a thing of the past. Sadly, it continues even today. There were 464 cases of attempted book censorship reported to the American Library Association in 2012. The would-be censors have a variety of reasons for their efforts, but a common theme runs through them: They want to silence anyone who disagrees with their beliefs.

Whether they want to eliminate references to other religious or political beliefs or other ideas about what is appropriate for children, the urge to suppress is always present. Rather than promote or explain their own ideas, they want to get rid of alternates. The public library has the exact opposite goal. We want to represent all points of view so that readers can select what they want and make up their own mind. The public library is a foundation of democracy. We take our duty seriously. Here is a list of the top 10 challenged books in 2012 and the reasons for the complaints. These books are available at local libraries many of which will feature a Banned Books Week

Little League

A sign of the Connecticut falls in U.S. title game times Little League to educate players on the dangers of performance enhancing drugs By Nate Brown

The Cheshire Citizen

With another Little League season just recently wrapped up, it would be easy for the organization to take a couple weeks of vacation and reflect on the year. But Little League has bigger fish to fry. The institution recently announced its plans to introduce an education program for players dealing with performance enhancing drugs, which it hopes to have in place for the 2014 season. “You definitely have to inform [kids] of what’s going on in the world and how it can hurt them,” said Berlin Little League President Bill Petit. While not believed to be an issue in youth baseball presently, local leagues agree that something should be put in place to help inform young players of the dangers of PEDs. “Any kind of drug awareness program that benefits children is certainly something that I think is definitely a positive move,” said Plainville Little League President Scott Stroh. “I would totally be for something that would educate children.” The Little League news comes at a time of great uproar in the sport of baseball. Twelve Major League players were recently suspended for 50 games for their connection to Biogenesis, a Miami-based anti-aging clinic that supplied players with performance enhancing drugs. A thirteenth player –Alex Rodriquez of the New York Yankees –is appealing his 211-game penalty. Petit, who has overseen Berlin Little League for 27 years, is concerned the extra

media exposure may confuse youngsters. “They’ve got to keep [PEDs] out of the media; keep it away from the kids and have the parents inform them,” said Petit. “If they still read about it, they’re gonna say, ‘Well, if he did it then I can do it. He’s my hero.’” From stealing bases to stealing signs, and corked bats to steroids, the sanctity of the game has been compromised more and more over the years. Meanwhile, to gain an edge on opponents, players have put their health on the line. Some worry that mentality will seep into amateur baseball. “Any kind of drug awareness program is beneficial to help educate children now to let them know that, ‘okay, these drugs might help you in the short term, but in the long term, they’re going to hurt you. They’re going to hurt your health, they’re going to hurt your whole life,’” said Stroh. “Absolutely I’m in favor of giving kids awareness.” While there hasn’t been an official Little League release on the step-by-step process the organization will take to educate players, local officials are eager to hear the plan. “It’s got to be a top priority,” said Petit. “It’s a top priority thing now, with steroids and stuff like that, because if players start doing it while they’re in high school and college, then they’re hooked.” Little League has been working with the Taylor Hooton Foundation to help implement the program. The foundation was named after Taylor E. Hooton, a 17-yearold high school athlete from Plano, Texas, who took his own life in 2003 after using anabolic steroids. Since that time, the foundation has worked to raise awareness of the dangers of performance enhancing drugs in young adults and athletes across the nation.

Little League World Series By John Kekis

Associated Press

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - When California starter Nick Mora had to leave the game with one out to go, he wasn’t too happy. “I wanted that complete game. I was kind of disappointed,” Mora said. He was all smiles moments later when reliever Giancarlo Cortez recorded the final out, completing Chula Vista’s 12-1 victory over Westport, Conn., in the U.S. title game of the Little League World Series on Saturday, Aug. 24. Mora gave California the spark it needed with ace right-hander Grant Holman not eligible to pitch until Sunday. Mora struck out 10 and walked only one before reaching his pitch limit. “When I was pitching, I knew most of their weaknesses and I was able to hit those spots,” said Mora, who also drove in four runs with a homer and single. “When I was hitting, I wasn’t trying to hit a home run. I was just trying to hit a line drive up the middle. That’s when the home runs come.” California took a 6-1 lead in the first two innings against the New England champions, scoring three times in the first with the help of some sloppy Connecticut play, and adding three more on Mora’s long three-run homer in the second. The West champions added six runs in the sixth on a passed ball, a wild pitch, an error, Mora’s RBI single, and a two-run double by Michael Gaines. It had been a memorable World Series for both teams. The 6-foot-4 Holman pitched the first extra-inning no-hitter in the Little League World Series since 1979, striking out 13 in seven innings in a 3-0 first-round victory over

Grosse Pointe, Mich. Holman also won the Aug. 21 game against Connecticut with a three-run homer in the ninth inning, and he hit a grand slam in the fourth inning that ended a mercy rule-shortened 15-3 victory over Newark, Del. For Connecticut, Chad Knight lined a run-scoring single to deep left field in the seventh inning to give the New England champions a wild 14-13 win over Sammamish, Wash., on Friday, Aug. 23. He also hit a solo homer to tie it at 13 in the fifth. Westport was torched for 10 runs in the fourth inning by Sammamish, then rallied with seven runs in the fifth to tie it. They did it with power, also getting home runs from Alex Reiner, Max Popken, Tatin Llamas and Ricky Offenberg. Perhaps worn out from all that excitement and with not much time to recover, Connecticut fell behind early against California and couldn’t muster another valiant rally. “I want these guys to immediately celebrate their success and forget about this game,” Connecticut manager Tim Rogers said. “We lost to a fantastic team. We have to remember we are one of the last two teams in the USA.” Chula Vista scored three times in the first inning when Connecticut committed three errors. Micah Pietila-Wiggs led off with a single, his eighth hit of the World Series, and Jake Espinoza reached second on an error after grounding into a force play. Mora then reached on an error by third baseman Harry Azadian, and Holman singled to left, getting to third when the ball went through the legs of outfielder Charlie Roof. When Cortez followed with an RBI single, California had a 3-0 lead. “We came out a little flat,” Rogers said. “I don’t think

we’ve ever made five errors in a game. That’s a great hitting team. They look for a fastball and keep fouling off the curveballs.” Matt Stone’s RBI single in the first put Connecticut on the board, but California came right back again. Pietila-Wiggs singled again, this time through the pitcher’s legs, Espinoza beat out a high bouncer to the mound, and Mora crushed a 3-0 pitch from Connecticut starter Knight onto the hill well beyond the fence in right-center for a 6-1 lead. Knight settled down after that, striking out the side in the third and retiring the side in order in the fourth. He went to the dugout having thrown 74 pitches, just 11 from the maximum allowed under Little League rules, but his teammates couldn’t produce one last rally as Mora held the New England champions at bay. “We went to work right after the game on Wednesday that (Knight) pitched (against us),” California manager Rick Tibbett said. “We wanted to make him work, foul some pitches off and get his pitch count up. They played a heck of game (Friday). We knew what they were capable of. We didn’t want the same situation to happen to us. We had to keep plugging away and getting runs.” Note: California would fall to Tokyo, Japan, 6-4, Sunday in the World Series finals.

Third district Republican Town Councilor Andrew Falvey has officially removed his name from the ballot, according to the town clerk’s office. Falvey said last week that he will not seek re-election and is being replaced on the ballot by his son, Joe Falvey, 22. “My son was nominated by the Republican Town

I’m going to miss providing the service to my community,” the two-term councilor said. “But it was so hectic and all with work that I was missing meetings. If I’m going to do something, I’m all in.” Joe Falvey did not return calls seeking comment.

Some interesting facts about religion

1. Wicca might seem like an ancient religion, but it actually wasn’t formed until the 1900s. 2. Converting to Islam is not ceremonial but private, the individual has to fully believe, recite a declaration of belief, and take a cleansing shower. 3. Buddhists don’t believe they reach Nirvana through death but through enlightenment; that can sometimes take multiple reincarnations. 4. In Catholicism there are patron saints for nearly everything including danger from water, protection against Whooping Cough, and protection against Witchcraft.

5. While it’s common in the U.S. for Hanukkah to mean eight nights of presents (at least for the kids) gift giving for the holiday is only common in North America and Israel. 6. The three main gods worshiped by Hindus are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva but there are many more lesser gods that are also acknowledged. 7. Mormons aren’t allowed to drink tea, coffee, or alcohol though they are allowed to drink soda. 8. Some faiths require believers to refuse medical treatment; Jehovah Witnesses aren’t allowed to receive blood transfusions and Christian

Scientists often refuse all traditional medical treatment. 9. Other religious denominations refuse modern technology, Amish individuals do without electricity or telephones. 10. Although the U.S. has a separation of church and state, some countries are controlled by one religion, though a true modern theocracy is rare (Vatican City is an example). 11. Christianity is currently the world’s largest religion with Islam the second and Hinduism the third.

Opinion Commentary

Letters policy for political season

Photos can foil or fool you By Laura Clementsen Special to The Citizen

Part of renewing a driver’s license is getting one’s picture taken by the clerk Clementsen at the local Department of Motor Vehicles office. Most of us groan when we see the resulting head shot encased in the small laminated card. It’s as if it’s always a bad hair day. The worst is that it may be necessary to show it during the next four to six years at least whenever we cash a check or wherever a photo ID is required. I may have to say, “Yes. that grumpy-looking person in the picture is me.” Or maybe, “I was a blond then.” I don’t know if mug shots are still posted in the post office, but on TV news we do see the faces of persons wanted by the police. Sometimes it is only the fuzzy shot taken by a surveillance camera and sometimes the alleged perpetrator is only seen in a hoodie so we don’t actually see the face. The worst of trying to take a recognizable picture of a person with the point-

and-shoot camera is you have to wait until the film is developed to find out if you got the shot at all. With the digital camera, if you don’t like the picture, for example, if the subject has closed her eyes like a friend of mine always does, you get a second chance to capture a likeness right away. I have inherited a number of old photograph albums. There are lots of pictures of families in formal poses, men with handlebar mustaches, women in long elaborate dresses, little girls with ribbons in their hair and little boys in sailor suits. For the most part, there are no names on the photos, most often no date or location of the place where the picture was taken. Unfortunately, the person who could identify the individuals in the pictures is long dead — that’s why I now have the albums. After my husband died, a group he had belonged to discovered they did not have a formal picture of him for their gallery of past officers. What to do? I searched my collection. The best I could come up with was a portrait of the two of us together. I took it to the professional photographer who had made the portrait. When he heard my story, “No problem,” said

he. “Just watch while I manipulate this screen.” And there within moments, he had blocked me out of the picture, adjusted the lapel on the jacket and produced a fine portrait. Three cheers for photo-shopping. A large photographic portrait of my husband’s grandmother had hung in my mother-in-law’s living room for as long as I could remember. When I inherited it, I felt it was time to retire Grandmother Johanna. But I saved the ornate, gilt frame. Eventually I bought a color reproduction of a portrait of Ginevra Bentivoglio painted by the fifteenth century Italian artist Ercoli de Roberti and put it in the frame. There were certain similarities. Both women were unsmiling, thin lipped and elegant looking. The differences: Ginevra’s face was in profile, Johanna was not. Ginevra’s clothing was a richly colored brocade, covered with pearls and jewels, Johanna wore a simple dark garment with a lace collar; Ginevra was young, perhaps a bride and pregnant, Johanna was past middle age. Ginevra hangs on the wall over the bed in the guest room. She’s almost an exception. Many of the pictures on the walls of my house are not of people. They are landscapes.

This tree-destroying Richter pest actually comes from Asia, and was unknown in this country until it was discovered in the Detroit area a decade ago. Since then, it’s been moving east, destroying millions of ash trees in its path. Last summer, Tom Worthley, an associate professor at the University of Connecticut, found some of the borers in Cheshire; now they’ve turned up at Southington’s Crescent Lake. Borers have been confirmed in 15 Connecticut towns and in 20 states, from Minnesota to Maryland and from Kansas to New Hampshire. The borer isn’t directly harmful to humans, but it can do quite a job on ash trees: First the adults eat the trees’ foliage, then they lay eggs. When the larvae emerge, they start eating the tree from the inside. But how did these beetles

get here, all the way from the Midwest? They were brought here by people who moved firewood from state to state, according to Deputy State Entomologist Victoria Smith. “Don’t chop the wood and take it to Vermont with you,” Smith warned. The emerald ash borer “lives in firewood,” cautions a U.S. Department of Agriculture website. “Move firewood and you spread the destruction. Help us protect the trees — and stop the beetle. Promise you won’t move firewood.” The emerald ash borer “is an enormous threat to our urban, suburban and rural forests,” says the U.S.D.A., and attacks all 16 native species of ash. Infested trees may die within two or three years. Then, sooner or later, they must be removed, often at great cost to residents, munipalities or states. As for Southington, “We’re working on what we need to do to protect the trees,” Robert Berkmoes, chairman of the Open Space and Land Acquisition Committee, said recently. But what can everyone else do? It’s quite simple, says the U.S.D.A.: “Help protect the ash trees! Don’t move firewood!”

Faith Faith Briefs Jewish High Holy Days Cheshire’s Temple Beth David has grown so much since its founding that its sanctuary at 3 Main Street cannot accommodate the entire congregation for the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, when the congregation worships in two separate rooms. This year, members of Temple Beth David will worship together in one holy space at the sanctuary of First Congregational Church on the green. Te m p l e B e t h D a v i d will worship in the First Co n g re gat i o n a l C h u rc h sanctuary on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 5 at 10 a.m.; the congregation will also worship together at the church on Yom Kippur, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. All other High Holy Day services will be held at Temple Beth David. More than the use of physical space, both congregations are excited about the developing mood for interfaith programming and dialogue. While the First Congregational Church and Temple Beth David have always enjoyed a harmonious relationship, the communities are looking forward to an expanding interfaith experience in Cheshire.

Malloy enjoys tour of cartoon museum The Cheshire Citizen

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy waxed nostalgic and showed his love of trivia, Aug. 28, when he visited Barker Character, Comic & Cartoon Museum for the first time. “This is reliving my childhood,” he said, as he slowly traveled down the narrow aisles filled with items from as far back as 1873. Malloy visited the museum, 1188 Highland Ave. (Route 10), because it was recently named as one of “the places to see” in New England by Money Magazine and CNNMoney.com. “I’m actually kind of blown away,” he said. An 1873 item, a tiny black elephant, prompted Malloy to ask a trivia question. “I wonder if it came out after (P.T.) Barnum was mayor (of Bridgeport)?,” Malloy said. “Someone google that.” It turns out that Barnum was mayor in 1875, two years after the tiny toy was made. Malloy literally danced and sang as he passed some of his favorite characters. “It’s Howdy Doody time,

it’s Howdy Doody time” he sang as he looked at the collection of Howdy Doody puppets. “Here’s Wimpy, right?” he said looking at a display case of figurines. “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” When he passed the Dr. No exhibit he impressed the Barker family and museum staff. “Dr. No was what year, ’62, right?” “Exactly,” said tour guide Benjamin George. Democratic state Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, who was also on the tour, said she was amazed by the memories it triggered. “I know I got a new lunch box every year,” she said, looking at the display of more than a hundred lunch boxes hanging from the second floor ceiling. “I’m feeling like I need to go home and call my mother and see which ones I had.” Republican state Rep. Lezlye Zupkus said she was also in awe of the number of items. “Ziggy, oh my goodness,” she said, looking at the

shelves of Ziggy items. Malloy said he had a Maxwell Smart briefcase as a kid. “It was really cool,” he said. The governor said he wants to find ways to let more people know about the museum. “We’re proud to have it here in Connecticut,” he said. “We’ve got to think of a way to promote this more.” ebritton@record-journal.com (203) 317-2208 Twitter: @EveBritton

E cke a nd Republ ica n David Schrumm got into a verbal battle over the fire truck, the $350,000 concession stand, and bathrooms at the high school and, most contentiously, over who had the right to speak and when.

In the end, the fire truck was left out of the capital budget and the concession stands and bathrooms were left in.

She missed her ride — on a Harley By Laura Clementsen Special to The Citizen

Owning a motorcycle may be classified as a luxury. At least that’s what Clementsen I think. Especially if one has other kinds of vehicles and if it is a vehicle one rides only occasionally. And, especially if it costs as much as, or more than the family sedan, and is equipped with all the latest accoutrements like a voice-activated GPS and a fancy radio. True, it may not require much gas to operate or much space in the garage. It may be fun to ride, may be easy to maneuver and may be a dependable way to get to and from work. Motorcycles may be things of beauty in bright colors with lots of shiny chrome. They may be two or three wheeled, with or without a sidecar. I do believe that a prospective motorcycle driver must attend motorcycle school prior to getting the required special license from the state department

of motor vehicles. Over the years there have been several motorcycle manufacturers. One that is close to home is the company that made the Indian Motorcycle in Springfield, Massachusetts. Two former bicycle makers, George Hendee and Carl Oscar Hedstrom got together in 1901 to manufacture motorcycles. The company went bankrupt in 1953. Later Polaris Industries bought the remnants of the company. Better known is the Harley Davidson Company, founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by two friends, William Harley and Arthur Davidson, who also had experience with bicycle making. The company has had its ups and downs but now has five major locations-- York, PA; Tomahawk, WI; Kansas City, MO; Menomonee, WI and Milwaukee. There have been various incarnations of these highly desirable machines in terms of size, power and style. The Harley Owners Group (HOG) was formed in 1983 to promote the See Harley / Page 19

based on what was right for me,” Dunham said. Dunham started her scholastic career as goalkeeper for Cheshire High School. She transferred to Cheshire Academy for her sophomore year and was the team’s leading scorer as a field player as a sophomore and a junior. She will be back in net this fall as a senior. Dunham has also reached national prominence. She trained with the United States U18 national team three times this year, most recently in California. “It’s been an amazing experience,” Dunham said. “You are competing against the best players in the county.” D u n h a m st a r te d for

She helped the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls U-17 Region I team win the Kuban Spring championship in Sochi, Russia. Dunham came up huge for the U.S. squad. The quarterfinals, semifinals and the final against Ukraine came down to penalty kicks and Dunham and the U.S. came out on top each time. “It was quite an experience playing in Russia,” Dunham said. “It’s something I will never forget.” Looking ahead, Dunham said she could contribute right away to Boston

College. “There’s another goalie coming in at the same time,” Dunham said. “But I like the competition. I like a challenge of competing against a high-level player. It’s something I look forward to.” Before deciding on BC, Dunham also considered (aside from UConn) West Point and N.C. State. Current Cheshire High School coach James Luis coached Dunham for two years at Cheshire Academy. He said she is a special talent. “Her physical attributes are obviously one of the major factors in her success,” Luis said. “Her dedication to being a better player is a second factor. She’s a terrific athlete.”

Ashworth lands at Platt Veteran soccer coach navigated CHS girls in 2012 By Sean Krofssik Special to The Citizen

Platt soccer has a new look this fall with fresh faces on the boys and girls sidelines. Former Cheshire girls coach Andrew Ashworth takes the reins of the Platt boys squad most recently coached by Wojciech Kolc, while rookie head coach and former Platt player Nick Dionne takes over for Rob Beale, who headed the Lady Panthers for 30 seasons. “I’m definitely filling big shoes,” the 2006 Platt grad said. “But I’m excited to put my own twist on the team and making my own mark.” Dionne made a mark as a player. He was a captain in his senior year at Platt and was an All-CCC South forward in his junior and senior seasons. His career continued at the

University of New Haven. He started every game from his freshman campaign on before graduating in 2010. He played all over the field for the Chargers. Dionne was an assistant for Oxford High School boys soccer team last fall. He said he’s ready to take over the Panthers and lead them to a winning season. “We have a solid team,” Dionne said. “We should be successful.” Dionne, 24, describes himself as a laid-back coach. “I definitely know the technical and tactical side of the game very well and I engrave that into the players,” Dionne said. Ashworth, a native of England, is another coach that focuses on X’s and O’s. The 34-year-old went 27-9-4 in 2011 and 2012 while heading the Cheshire High girls program. In 2011, the Rams won the SCC Tournament and made it to the Class LL quarterfinals. The coach said he’s excited

about his new gig with the Panthers. “I enjoy the high school season,” Ashworth said. “I like the day-to-day of it. I’ve enjoyed being on the practice field with the boys. We are going to try to turn this program around.” Wins have been tough for the Panthers to come by in recent years. Platt was 1-15 last fall. “I don’t see it as a challenge,” Ashworth said. “I see it as an opportunity to develop a program. It’s a program that has struggled and has an opportunity to improve, and we want to improve the reputation of Platt boys soccer.” Ashworth said about 30 players have come out for the team and he said he’s in it for the long haul. “To be honest, I wouldn’t take the job if it wasn’t a longterm project,” Ashworth said. “I want a program to grow and build.” See Ashworth / Page 20

Harley lifestyle and the Harley products. In 2005, the median age of riders was 46 years and I believe most riders continue to be men. Local motorcycle clubs do remarkable philanthropic work in addition to having fun. On a morning talk show today I heard the CEO of Harley Davidson say that this month of August marks the company’s 110th anniversary. To honor the occasion, he said the company is presenting eight new models and wants to make a strong appeal to three groups-women, minorities and young riders. I do not own a motorcycle nor have I ever ridden one. One summer a few years ago my niece Callie and I went

to Phoenix to visit another relative. Callie wanted to bring home Harley mementos to her husband and two sons. They do not have motorcycles but admire the Harley lifestyle. We found from the phone book that there was a Harley store not far away. We borrowed a car and drove to it. Neither of us was prepared for the enormous display of motorcycles on the sidewalk outside the store. We entered and walked to the back of the store where three stunning saleswomen in shorts and tank tops with the Harley logo stood ready to wait on us. The merchandise also astounded. There were clothes with the Harley logo for tiny babies. My eye was taken by a woman’s baby

blue leather jacket with logo. There was every kind of garment, knick-knack and trinket imaginable, all with the Harley logo. Callie bought T-shirts with HarleyPhoenix on the back for her men folks. As we walked through the store to leave, a salesman offered to give each of us a ride on any of the models we saw. We both declined. But on the way home, Callie said to me, “Aunt Laura, you should have taken that ride. I would have taken your picture and you could have put it on the Christmas card you send to your friends. I think they would be quite surprised.� Surprised indeed. Me, too. I’m sorry now that I didn’t accept the offer.

Agency embarks to make Conn. healthier by 2020 By Susan Haigh

Associated Press

HARTFORD — Public health officials have embarked on a wide-ranging effort to take the pulse of the state’s well-being and come up with a roadmap to make Connecticut healthier by 2020. Starting next week, the Department of Public Health will hold forums in all eight counties to hear about issues and problems facing the communities’ health, as well as ideas for making the communities healthier places to live. The first forum will be held Sept. 10 at Rockville High School in Vernon. The forums are part of the State Health Assessment that’s underway, tracking information that will ultimately

be used to identify various health issues facing residents and mobilize resources. “We want people to tell us what we missed and what else we should be thinking about,” said Dr. Jewel Mullen, the Department of Public Health commissioner, in an interview with The Associated Press. At those meetings, officials also plan to share some of the information they’ve already collected — with the help of numerous public, private and community partners from different disciplines — about the population’s health. Even though Connecticut usually ranks among the top 10 healthiest states, Mullen said problems have already been identified. For example, the state still has high obesity rates. Unlike some

other states, childhood obesity rates are not declining, especially in low-income areas, she said. State statistics show 8.2 percent of female students in grades 9-12 were obese in 2005. That number climbed slightly to 8.4 percent in 2011. For boys in grades 9-12, the obesity rate was 13.8 percent in 2005 and 16.5 percent in 2011. Mullen said there are also pockets of high rates of HIV, asthma, high infant mortality and low birth weights. And while many of the issues are found in Connecticut’s urban centers, Mullen said some are found in rural and suburban communities as well. For example, she said the agency has discovered a correlation between low birth weights and women who became pregnant using assisted reproductive technology. She said more of those kinds of procedures are performed in Connecticut compared to other states. Additionally, she said residents living in urban and rural parts of Connecticut are experiencing trouble access-

ing healthy foods because they live in so-called food deserts, where there isn’t ready access to supermarkets and other stores selling healthy food. Public health officials are also looking at the preponderance of chronic disease in Connecticut, such as heart disease and diabetes. State statistics show that heart disease was the leading cause of death for women in 2009, followed by cancer. Meanwhile, slightly more men died from cancer than heart disease that year. The department’s wide-ranging study — a first for the agency — comes as the federal Affordable Care Act rolls out in Connecticut, changing how health care is delivered in the state, including the new Access Health CT insurance marketplace that will begin open enrollment Oct. 1. But Mullen said the health care reform law is not just about expanding access to health insurance and treatment but also about focusing on preventive measures — something the department can help address.

“Most prevention isn’t happening in the doctor’s office, and a lot of prevention isn’t about medical care at all,” she said. “It’s about the conditions that people live in. It’s about their access to healthy foods. It’s about clean water. It’s about they’re making the right choices for their own health. It’s about decreasing smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.” The final report, Healthy Connecticut 2020, is expected to be ready by late 2013. Similar to the federal initiative known as Healthy People, the roadmap will include measurable benchmarks to determine whether the state is actually healthier by 2020.

Ashworth From Page 19

Ashworth lives in Cheshire with his wife Dana and their two daughters, Kaitlyn, 2, and Holly, 11 months. In addition to being a coach and a father, his latest ambition is flying the friendly skies. He has been training to be a pilot for the past year. “I’ve always been interested in aviation,” Ashworth said. “I said to my wife that I’m bored and it’s time for me to do something else. I got my private license in the middle of the summer. And I love doing it and being up in the air and with the other pilots.” Ashworth has been flying three or four times a week for the past four months, with recent flights to Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Provincetown. Platt athletic director Rich Katz hopes Dionne and Ashworth can take the Panthers to great heights this year. “Andrew came to us highly recommended,” Katz said. “He’s very experienced in soccer and Nick had a strong career here and at UNH. I’m wishing them both great success.”

Children’s mental health bill signed into legislation Press Release On Aug. 16, state Sen. Danté Bartolomeo (D-Meriden) joined Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in signing Senate Bill 972, “An Act Concerning the Mental, Emotional and Behavioral Health of Youths,” an initiative of Bartolomeo’s from the 2013 legislative session. The bill officially became law on June 24 and serves as a complement to the gun violence prevention and child safety law which was passed this year by the legislature in reaction to the December

2012 school shootings in Newtown. “While we may not be able to ensure that a Sandy Hooktype tragedy never happens again, this legislation is a critical step in creating a consortium of care across agencies. It concentrates on early identification and intervention of our children’s mental health needs,” Bartolomeo said. “Having a system that treats mental health with a level of importance equal to that of general health is a personal goal of mine.” Before signing the bill, Malloy said it was not of-

ten that a freshman legislator like Bartolomeo has this kind of impact on public policy. “These initiatives will improve our education and medical systems and quickly get assistance to the young people in our state who are struggling and need treatment. I commend Senator Bartolomeo and the General Assembly for their unwavering support on this issue, these initiatives will strengthen families and our communities,” he said. Bartolomeo’s child mental health bill passed the legislature in early June on a unani-

mous and bipartisan basis. It seeks to reduce mental, emotional and behavioral health issues in children through enhanced prevention, early identification and intervention, better communication and consistency between home visitation programs, and new initiatives such as the creation of a Children’s Mental Health Task Force to study the effects of nutrition, genetics and psychotropic drugs on children. The new law (Public Act 13-178) has eight sections, and can be read at www.cga.ct.gov by searching for bill 972.

Water does a body good of Sports Medicine guidelines for fluid intake before and during physical activity. These guidelines recommend that people drink about 17 ounces of fluid about two hours before exercise. During exercise, they recommend that people start drinking fluids early, and drink them at regular intervals to replace fluids lost by sweating. 4. Your skin contains plenty of water, and functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss. But don’t expect over-hydration to erase wrinkles or fine lines. You can also help “lock” moisture into your skin by using moisturizer, which creates a physical barrier to keep moisture in. 5. Body fluids transport waste products in and out of

cells. The main toxin in the body is blood urea nitrogen, a water-soluble waste that is able to pass through the kidneys to be excreted in the urine. W h e n yo u’ re ge tt i n g enough fluids, urine flows freely, is light in color and free of odor. When your body is not getting enough fluids, urine concentration, color, and odor increases because the kidneys trap extra fluid for bodily functions. 6. Adequate hydration keeps things flowing along your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation. When you don’t get enough fluid, the colon pulls water from stools to maintain hydration -- and the result is constipation. --webmd.com

1. Your body is composed of about 60 percent water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. 2. For years, dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy. While water doesn’t have any magical effect on weight loss, substituting it for higher calorie beverages can certainly help. Food with high water content tends to look larger, its higher volume requires more chewing, and it is absorbed more slowly by the body, which helps you feel full. Water-rich foods include fruits, vegetables, brothbased soups, oatmeal, and beans. 3. Cells that don’t maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue. Drinking enough fluids is important when exercising. Follow the American College

Conn. lawmakers approve medical marijuana regs By Susan Haigh Associated Press

state law is invalidated when it conflicts with a federal law. But he said there has been a split on those decisions. In a written memo, the attorney general’s office called the case law “highly unsettled.” Ru b e n s t e i n s a i d t h e agency, which currently oversees the manufacturing and dispensing of medications in Connecticut, attempted to craft tight and comprehensive regulations “that would not capture the attention of federal authorities.” Also last week, the committee voted to change the classification of marijuana from a drug with no medical purpose to a drug that has a medical purpose but also has the potential for abuse and needs to be controlled.

HARTFORD — Connecticut became the latest state to enact a medical marijuana program when a legislative committee on Tuesday, Aug. 27, approved regulations that spell out the details of a new system that’s expected to be up and running next year. By a voice vote, the General A s s e m b ly ’s Re g u l a t i o n Review Committee approved the rules crafted by the Department of Consumer Protection. While there were some nay votes, no tally was taken. Some cheers erupted in the audience after the regulations were declared approved. After filing the regulations with the secretary of the state, Consumer Protection Co m m i ss i o n e r Wi l l i a m Rubenstein said the agency will seek applications for marijuana producer and dispensary licenses early next month. In the department’s request for applications, it will say how many licenses it expects to issue in this round. “We’re still fine-tuning what the numbers will be,” said Rubenstein, who anticipates applications will be due 60 days after the request. He anticipates licenses would be issued sometime around Jan. 1, and production and dispensing operations will be up and running within three to six months afterward. Rubenstein had urged committee members to approve the regulations, parts of which were recently retooled to address concerns raised by legislative attorneys. He said many patients are waiting for the drug to become legally available. “There are a lot of people who don’t have any idea how or would not buy this product on the black market. And there’s a lot of risk associated with buying a product that you don’t know what’s in it,” he said. “We expect that

there are a lot of patients out there who are waiting to see if this program is going to be up and running.” Rubenstein said physicians have already certified 881 patients for the program and almost 600 have gone through the vetting process and received their registration cards. Of those, he said some are likely buying their marijuana from illegal sources, while many others are waiting for the program to begin. Still others have held off applying for certification. The wide-ranging regulations address everything from how marijuana dispensaries and growers will operate to how marijuana can be kept secure and unadulterated. The General Assembly passed the original legislation that created the medical marijuana program in 2012. Some of the committee members expressed concerns that the program will be at odds with federal drug laws, putting growers, dispensaries, state employees and possibly legislators at risk of federal prosecution. Rep. Vincent Candelora, R-North Branford, acknowledged there is “some comfort that can be taken that these regulations are being written as conservatively as possible,” but he remained concerned about violating federal law. “I think we’re boxing ourselves into a potential federal conflict that we are trying to regulate an industry that is, frankly, it’s illegal under federal law,” he said. Asked by Rep. Selim Noujaim, R-Waterbury, the committee co-chairman, whether he can be sued for enacting the regulations, Robert Clark, special counsel to the state attorney general, said, “I don’t know. I think it’s highly doubtful.” Of the 20 states that have either implemented or adopted medical marijuana laws, Clark said his office is aware of four where courts tackled the issue of “pre-emption,” in which a

Scholastic sports participation on the rise Press Release Participation in high school sports increased for the 24th consecutive year in 2012-13 and passed the 7.7 million mark for the first time, according to the annual High School Athletics Participation Survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations. Based on figures from the 51 NFHS-member state high school associations, which includes the District of Columbia, sports participation for the 2012-13 school year reached an all-time high of 7,713,577 participants – an increase of 21,057 from the previous year. An additional 15,190 girls participated in high school sports last year, moving the girls all-time record to 3,222,723 and marking the

24th consecutive year for an increase in the number of female participants. After its first decrease in 20 years last year, boys participation started on the upswing again with an additional 5,867 participants. The boys total of 4,490,854 is second all-time to the 4,494,406 in 2010-11. “While we recognize that many schools are experiencing challenges with funding high school sports programs, we are encouraged that schools are responding to the challenges and that more and more students are involved in high school sports,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “Playing sports within the school setting continues to be the desire of more than 55 percent of students enrolled in our nation’s high schools.” Eight of the top 10 girls sports registered increases in participation in 2012-13,

led by competitive spirit squads (8,201), outdoor track and field (4,172), and swimming and diving (3,536). Lacrosse, cross country, volleyball, soccer and tennis also had additional female participants, while basketball and fast-pitch softball had minor declines. Five of the top 10 boys sports showed increases in participation, led by outdoor track and field (5,044), swimming and diving (4,354), and basketball (3,387). Cross country and baseball also registered gains among top 10 sports. Eleven-player football remains the top sport for boys with 1,086,627 participants in 2012-13, although the number of players has decreased slightly each of the past four years, including a drop of 9,366 from 2011-12 to 2012-13. In terms of combined participation, track and field,

and swimming and diving registered the best overall gains. Track and field had an increase of more than 9,100 participants when combining girls and boys, while swimming and diving was up almost 8,000 participants. Girls sports outside the top 10 that recorded increases in participants and could be emerging sports for females are bowling (25,450 participants in 201213), ice hockey (9,447), wrestling (8,727) and flag football (7,019). A sizeable increase in “adapted sports” participation also contributed to the rise in 2012-13 figures. With seven states offering these programs for students with disabilities in 14 sports, the number of participants rose almost 3,000 to 8,747 (girls and boys combined). The top 10 states by participants remained in the

same order as last year, with Texas and California topping the list with 798,333 and 777,545, respectively. The remainder of the top 10 was New York (389,475), Illinois (339,944), Ohio (327,919), Pennsylvania (31 5,492), Michigan (304,438), New Jersey (270,423), Florida (243,397) and Minnesota (230,421). Although only one of the top 10 states registered an increase in participation (New Jersey), overall, 30 states reported higher figures from the previous year. The participation survey has been compiled since 1971 by the NFHS through numbers it receives from its member associations. The complete 201213 High School Athletics Participation Survey is attached in PDF format and is available on the NFHS Web site at www.nfhs.org. --NFHS

Fantasy football players, avoid these pitfalls By Nate Brown

The Cheshire Citizen

For plenty of middle-aged men across the country, it’s the most wonderful time of the year (cue the poorly-timed holiday music.) Football at all levels is just around the corner. And with the return of football comes the chance for everyone to become a champion … of their respective fantasy football league. I’ve reveled in fantasy football over the past several years. Yet I don’t claim to be an expert, by any means. What I can offer you, though, is some advice on what not-to-do when drafting your fantasy football team. And after a weekend comprised of two drafts -- one with a lump sum of money

attached to it -- I feel as though I’ve grown from a young grasshopper to a wise sense in terms of how to avoid a poor draft. That, and I’m talking up my teams as best I can, trying to reassure myself that I didn’t make any mistakes. So without further ado, here is some rational advice from a seasoned vet on what to avoid in your drafting war room: 1) Being green Going green is one of the better things you can do for the environment. Being green going into your draft could prove disastrous. Making sure you’ve read up on the league rules and regulations is a must, especially if you and your friends score in an unorthodox fashion. Also, make sure you know which pros are in-

jured, or simply not playing. No one wants to be that guy who drafts Rob Gronkowski, who won’t be back until mid-September at the earliest (this guy!). Even worse is the guy who drafts Aaron Hernandez and pencils him in as their backup tight end (not this guy!). 2) The player who’s past his prime Sometimes it’s tough to pass on the Randy Moss’s of a generation, but if you’re still planning on drafting Chad Johnson, you might as well call it a year right now. Johnson, while still listed as an available player on Yahoo. com, has yet to land on a roster and probably won’t, ever again. While an extreme case, avoiding players similar to those in Johnson’s situation

(i.e. Willis McGahee, Plaxico Burress, Tim Tebow) is a must. 3) Playing favorites It’s hard not to play favorites when someone from your favorite team is on the board. But if you draft five offensive players from the Buffalo Bills, you’re not making the playoffs this year, or any year. It’s alright to choose one, maybe two players from your favorite team, but don’t bog yourself down by drafting the whole team. If the offense has a bad week, no one will score you any points. Likewise, try to avoid doing the same with any team, even if they do happen to be an offensive powerhouse. While drafting Aaron Rodgers and James Jones may seem logical due to the big-point possibilities, it

could blow up in your face if Rodgers has an off week and throws three interceptions. 4) Overdrafting There are several forms of overdrafting to discuss. The first is when you should draft your defense and kicker. Before this year, I had always been one to try to fill up my entire starting roster before filling in my bench positions. It only seemed natural to get a good defensive/special teams unit and kicker before the top teams and players were gone. However, drafting a kicker in the 10th round (of a 14-round draft) just because you want to round out your starters is not a good idea. Trust me, I would know. Instead, wait for someone else to break the seal See Pitfalls / Page 24

those positions, but it gives you a chance to strengthen your bench for when you’ll need to replace someone on their bye week, or an injured player. The second form of overdrafting is in regards to those crucial first couple of rounds when all the top talent is flying off the board. If you still need a running back and are afraid you won’t get a good one, it doesn’t mean you need to draft a mediocre one with your second round pick. I’m sure that mediocre back will still be available in round three, or four, or five, or maybe six. Instead, go after another position that you haven’t filled yet, such as wide receiver or quarterback. Those players will be just as crucial to your team’s success, maybe even more so than your first pick. Once again, just because Tom Brady and Drew Brees are off the board, it doesn’t mean you need to go into panic mode and draft Philip Rivers sixth overall because you’re worried you won’t get a decent QB in the later

rounds. Speaking of Rivers … 5) Never Draft Philip Rivers Part of this advice is fact, and part of this advice is pure pent up anger that hasn’t yet dissipated. But all of it will save you from a dreadful second half of the season (December and January; i.e. the most crucial part of the year) that has you consulting a Magic 8-ball, a shrink, and a Ouija board to see who is going to have the better Week 15 performance: Rivers or Mark Sanchez. And yes, this situation actually happened. Stick to these draft day tips, and your team shouldn’t have anything to worry about, well, at least until the regular season starts. Then you’re on your own. I don’t give free agency advice. I’m not paid for that. Speaking of payment, should you happen to win your league, I’ll take a 25 percent advisory compensation in check form. But cold hard cash works, too.

Hunter victorious at 26th Conn. Mid-Amateur Press Release

round of the tournament in the final round, firing a 6-under-par 66 to finish runner-up. Perry, the 2008 Russell C. Palmer Cup champion, played near perfect golf by recording five birdies and an eagle to post a 4-under-par clubhouse total in the final round. Hunter’s bogeys on holes No. 10 and 11, coupled with a double-bogey seven on the 16th, helped make things interesting for Perry. Needing just two pars coming in to secure the victory, Hunter drained a 30-foot putt on the 17th which all but sealed the victory. Finishing in a tie for third place was Brent Dietz of Cedar Knob Golf Club and Michael Thompson of Glastonbury Hills Country Club, both of whom shot tournament total of 3-under-par. Rounding out the top five was Tom Brett of Tallwood Country Club, and last year’s runner-up, Dave Szewczul, Political Advertisement

of Tunxis Plantation Country Club. The CSGA Championship season continues with the 68th Connecticut Senior Amateur at Tallwood Country Club Sept. 23 and 24. For more information, visit ctsenioram.com.

Ben Hunter of Sterling Farms Country Club captured the 26th Connecticut Mid-Amateur Championship at Fairview Farm Golf Course in impressive fashion, shooting a final round 68 to win by three strokes over Philip Perry of Black Hall Club. Conducted by the Connecticut State Golf Association, the Connecticut Mid-Amateur Championship was a 54-hole stroke play competition contested at the Fairview Farm Golf Course in Harwinton Aug. 20-21. The championship is open to bona fide members of a CSGA club who are 25 years of age and over by the start of the tournament. Hunter, who led the tournament after round one following a round of 69, trailed Raymond Floyd, Jr. and Seth Jainchill by one heading into the third round. The tournament tests players over three rounds of stroke play, with round one contested Aug. 20 and rounds two and three contested Aug. 21.

Playing in the last group, Hunter started off his final round with a birdie on the second hole, jumping him into a six-way tie for the lead at 4-under-par. He would go on to birdie holes No. 3, 4, 5 and 8 to make the turn in 5-under-par 31, and in just a little over an hour, Hunter suddenly had the lead by six. “It was definitely one of the best putting rounds of my life,” said Hunter. “I feel like I hit the ball the worst of the three rounds this afternoon, but I made so many great putts for birdies.” Although he would make a few bogeys on the back nine, he balanced it with three more birdies for an incredible final round 68. In three rounds, Hunter recorded a total of eighteen birdies, the most by any competitor in the field. The win is his first CSGA Championship, having moved to Connecticut just three years ago. “It’s definitely the biggest win of my career. I won a few city championships in my hometown of Davis, California growing up, but this...this is really special,” said Hunter. Among his chasers was Philip Perry of Black Hall Club, who shot the lowest

LANDMARK TREE REMOVED

Dealership raises funds for schools “Drive for Education,” sponsored by Richard Chevrolet, has raised $8,100 for the Cheshire Schools Foundation. “We expected to raise a lot, but we exceeded our expectations,” said Jason Vianese, general manager of the car dealership. The program started Feb. 16 and ended Aug. 16. For every car sold to a Cheshire resident or an employee of the school system, the company put $100 into the foundation’s fund. “This is just fantastic,” said Greg Florio, Cheshire school superintendent. “It’s really great.” Vianese, who has one son in Cheshire schools, said he hopes the money goes for technology. “But I’ll kind of leave it up to them. They know what’s best for the children,” Vianese said. — Eve Britton

One of the larger trees on the town green, property of the First Congregational Church, was taken down recently. Total Tree Care workers spent much of Aug. 23 cutting and removing the maple, estimated to be 150-years-old, with a circumference of 19 feet. Judd Moore, a church trustee, called the decision unfortunate but necessary. An arborist was called when an 18-foot limb broke off from the tree—just weeks after the church’s annual Strawberry Festival. That’s when it was discovered the tree needed to be cut down for safety concerns, Moore said. | Citizen photo by Joy VanderLek
