Future of historic house uncertain

By Jesse Buchanan Record-Journal staff

A local developer and owner of the town’s second-oldest house is considering how to develop the 50-acre property he bought last summer.

By Andreas Yilma Special to the Record-Journal

Preservationists hope John Ricci, owner of Ricci Construction Group, will salvage the Nathaniel Ives house, which was built by one of the town’s earliest settlers around 1749.

Renovations have been completed to the lower and main levels of the Cheshire Public Library.

Ricci said the historical value of the home and property at 257 Fenn Road has made him pause with development plans. “Something that’s 300 years old? How often do I come across something like that,” he said. “I’m treating it a little different, because I feel a little different about it.” The land stretches along town-owned

Members of the Cheshire and Hamden fire departments were on hand at the funeral to honor Yocher.

Yocher was a founding member of the Waterbury Area Fire Chiefs Association, where he also served as treasurer for 35 years.

Yocher died at Yale New Haven Hospital on Sept. 30 at “Chief joined the fire departthe age of 79.

Yocher, who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, also received military honors at Cheshire Hillside Cemetary.

The work has created more open space with newer furnishings and added some new technology. “It’s much brighter, warmer and better lit,” said library Deputy Director Deborah Rutter. Carpet, which was about 22 years old and worn out, was replaced. Book stacks were lowered, allowing more light to shine throughout the floor. Two additional study rooms were added along with a handicapped-accessible bathroom. According to Rutter, dozens of new power outlets were added along with a VHS and tape cassette to DVD converter. Soundproof insulation was also added to different parts of the building. See Library, A10

Residents of the Ives house were among those who identified a neighbor living on Cook Hill as a witch, a story featured in the historical society’s cemetery tours. Ricci said he’s heard from historians that the house was used as respite for Revolutionary War volunteers who had just suffered a defeat in New York under General George Wa s h i ng to n . “This house and the original residents of the house figure prominently in our Cheshire history,” Ca lab ro sa i d . jbuchanan@record-journal.com 203-317-2230 Twitter: @JBuchananRJ

Questions remain in teacher’s death By Jesse Buchanan Record-Journal staff

Few details have been released by local and state officials as they continue to investigate the death of a high school teacher found in the woods Oct. 3 near her home. A representative from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Oct. 5 that officials were waiting for the results of a toxicology test to provide more information on the death of Megumi Yamamoto. During an Oct. 5 press conference Superintendent of Schools Jeff Solan described the impact Yamamoto, an English teacher, had on the school.

Election / political letters

Letters to the Editor New voice for 89th To the editor: It is time for the people of the 89th district to elect someone who will work for us. Anne Harrigan is smart, hardworking and cares deeply about the people in our community and state. Anne’s background on the Board of Education makes her incredibly qualified to tackle the challenges we face: school funding, school safety and access to affordable higher education. She will also work toward realistic tax reform that truly relieves the middle class of an inequitable burden. It is time for a new voice in the 89th. Vote for Anne Harrigan on Nov. 6.

As a professor at Quinnipiac University, Anne has first-hand knowledge of the skills students need to succeed in college and beyond.

Zupkus has voted against: assistance for low-wage workers (five times); making voting easier and fairer (twice); modest improvements in firearms law (twice); and reducing exposure to second-hand smoke.

Zupkus voted against this common sense legislation.

CHS Sports Roundup Boys soccer

1-0 lead into halftime.

Cheshire 2, Hamden 0: The undefeated Rams kept it rolling with a SCC Oronoque victory over visiting Hamden.

The Rams stretched it with two goals in a span of five minutes early in the second half. Loura got the first one, then delivered a corner kick that Riley Pettit headed home.

Evan Esposito scored in the first half and then assisted on Quinn Donahue's insurance goal in the second as coach Artur Branco's boys improved to 6-0-1 overall and 3-0-1 in the Oronoque. Esposito's goal came off a corner kick from Toby Goldstein. Cheshire goalie Nate Pisani made three saves to record his sixth shutout on the season. Hamden dipped to 5-3-1 and 1-2-1. Cheshire 1, Daniel Hand 1: Matt Mayano scored the equalizer for the Rams with just 23 seconds showing the clock in the SCC crossover contest at the Surf Club. Kyle Kuhlthau set up the goal and earned the assist. Nate Pisani had two saves in net. Cheshire remained unbeaten at 6-0-2. Hand is 7-11.

The victory was the third straight for Cheshire, which improved to 4-2-3. The loss was the first for Hand, which fell to 3-1-3. Lila McNamee assisted on Loura's first goal. Seymone Rosenberg made four saves in net. Cheshire 2, Guilford 1: Cheshire spotted host Guilford a goal in the opening minute and the 1-0 score held to the 53rd minute, when Lila McNamee scored off a feed from Caroline Campion. Campion scored the gamewinner 14 minutes later. Seymone Rosenberg racked up five saves as Cheshire improved to 3-2-3. Guilford fell to 0-3-4.

81: The Rams recorded their 51st consecutive dual meet victory with the SCC decision at North Haven's Gawrych Town Pool. Now 7-0 on the season, Cheshire was led by Sophie Murphy, who won the 100 freestyle in 54.97 and swam on two first-place relays. Murphy teamed with Ola Nawrocki, Elli Haskes and Shannon Lindsey on the 200 freestyle relay (1:44.58). She opened the meet anchoring the 200 medley behind Jillian Stevens, Nawrocki and Julia Stevens (1:52.47). Jillian Stevens went on to win the 100 backstroke (1:01.83). Julia Stevens took the 100 butterfly (58.48). Cheshire swept the distance freestyles with Sam Grenon (200, 2:01.32) and Esther Han (500, 5:18.96). Sienna Breton captured diving with 241.05 points.

Morgan Duffany and Adalyn Schommer of Cheshire have been inducted into the Mu Alpha Theta, the National Mathematics Honor Society and the Science National Honor Society at Sacred Heart Academy.

Houle provided insurance with 11:40 left with an assist from Reagan Bailey. This game was a rematch of the 2011 Class L state final, which Cheshire won 1-0.

Murphy, Shannon Lindsey, Esther Han and Samantha Grenon combined to take the 200 free relay (1:42.45). Grenon, Julia Stevens, Han and Elli Haskes touched the wall first in the 400 free relay (3:45.5).

With the rematch win, Cheshire remained undefeated, improving to 8-0 while knocking Norwalk to 7-2. Lexie Hemstock earned her seventh shutout of the season with eight saves.

Field hockey

Cheshire’s Brendan Mellitt cruised to a second-place finish at the Wickham Park Invitational in Manchester.

Cheshire 2, Daniel Hand 1: Annie Eddy scored a pair of second-half goals off penalty corners as Cheshire remained undefeated with a victory over rival Daniel Hand in a SCC showdown on the Daniel Hand High School turf field in Madison. Eddy's goals came in a span of two minutes midway through the second half. Both were set up by Olivia Salamone.

...........

HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S MALE & FEMALE NOMINEES .

..........

DERRICK ARNOLD

GRACE ANETRELLA

The Sheehan cross country program more than held its own at this year’s Neubauer Invitational. Both Titans teams placed second running on their home course. Leading the way for the Sheehan boys was the guy who’s been leading them all season, junior Derrick Arnold. With a time of 18:27, Arnold was second over the line at the Neubauer. Arnold went on to run a team-best 18:42 at Saturday’s Wickham Invitational at Wickham Park.

Senior Grace Anetrella was in the middle of all the key moments in Maloney’s victory over Platt last Wednesday. The match ended 3-0, yet was filled with big momentum swings. Anetrella recorded seven kills, four digs and, while putting 16 of 17 serves into play, landed three aces. That production gave Anetrella 37 kills, 28 aces and an 86.3 serving percentage heading into Friday’s match in Bloomfield, which the Spartans won to improve to 7-5.

EVAN ESPOSITO

CAITLYN HART

Evan Esposito and the Cheshire boys soccer team broke into the Class LL/L state coaches’ poll at No. 10 last week. Then the Rams took care of business on the field to rise to No. 6. Cheshire beat Hamden 2-0 at home and tied No. 7 Daniel Hand 1-1 on the road to remain unbeaten at 6-0-2. Esposito, a senior, factored into both goals against Hamden. He scored on a corner kick by Toby Goldstein, then fed Quinn Donahue for the insurance goal.

The leading player for the Panthers in last Wednesday’s rivarly match with Maloney? Their most experienced, junior Caitlyn Hart. A standout since her freshman year, Hart has been leading Platt in most phases of the game this fall. That was evident again Wednesday, when Hart racked up nine digs, seven kills and six aces. Earlier this season, in a match against East Windsor, Hart planted 14 aces. She and the Panthers stand at 4-6.

JOHN MILLER

CAROLINE KRAWEC

If it seemed like John Miller was in on every defensive play for the Blue Knights on Friday night in New Britain, it’s because he pretty much was. The senior defensive end had 23 tackles (7 primary, 16 assisted) in Southington’s 27-24 come-from-behind victory. Those 23 tackles rank second on Southington’s single-game list. The record of 27, set by Mitchell Welch in 2004, also came against New Britain. Miller now has 50 tackles on the season.

Lyman Hall’s Caroline Krawec is the latest female swimmer to explode onto the area scene as a freshman. She’s been earning the Trojans first-place points in individual races and relays since the first meet of the season. Last Monday, in a meet at West Haven, Krawec was a tenth of a second off Brittany Driscoll’s program record of 1:08.20 in the 100yard breaststroke. Three days later, in East Haven, Krawec broke it with a time of 1:07.72.

Suzio, Malloy still differ on early release HARTFORD — State Sen. Len Suzio continued to spar over Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s Earned Risk Reduction Credit program Oct. 2, saying the governor’s policy is a “catastrophic failure” that should be suspended and studied.

tained from the DOC indicates 40,814 sentenced inmates have been discharged from prison with at least one credit since the program first took effect in September 2011. Suzio said that during that same timeframe, 14,008 crimes of a “violent or serious nature” were committed by inmates released with risk

Suzio said the data he ob-

“This continuing high degree of recidivism and the shocking number of 14,008 violent crimes committed by early release convicts who were supposed to reform their behavior is glaring testimony that the program is not working,” he said.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a person who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. --Timothy 2:15

Leigh Appleby, a spokesman for Malloy, said Suzio was sharing “alternative facts” and there “is no disputing that Connecticut is safer today than when Governor Malloy took office.”

Suzio, R-Meriden, also shared data he obtained from the Department of Correction that he said backs up his claim that the program isn’t working. A Malloy spokesman called Suzio’s information “alternative facts,” however, and said drops in the crime rate and recidivism show that the program is accomplishing its goal.
