Council rules out high-tech comments By Eve Britton

The Cheshire Citizen

The Town Council voted 6-3 to disallow tape recordings, telephone conversations or Skype transmissions as part of public comment at council meetings. That decision, made at the Dec. 10 meeting, stated that only written or in-person verbal communication will be allowed. The vote along party lines was won by the majority Republicans. “I would point out that in this day of technology, it’s an obvious way to communicate,” said Councilor Patti

Flynn-Harris, a Democrat, of the forms of communication no longer allowed. “I think it’s abridging free speech.” Councilor Liz Linehan, a Democrat, agreed, adding that with the new technology in place in council chambers, there was no reason for the restrictions. “It’s stifling free speech,” she said. Councilor David Schrumm, a Republican, said he feared that not only would speech not get into the record accurately, but they wouldn’t know if the person speaking is who he or she purported to be. “If people want to be

The panel also accepted $12,000 from Cheshire’s Lights of Hope, which was given to the Human Services gift account to help needy residents. “We don’t do this for the recognition,” organizer Don Walsh said. “It’s neighbors helping neighbors.” Another $10,000 was donated to the Petit Family Foundation and $15,000 to the Cheshire food pantry.

To make your package really special, there’s nothing better than a beautiful ribbon. Invest in a good ribbon. If you can’t make a bow, don’t worry— the bow police aren’t watching. There’s no shame in buying a bow. To decorate this time of year, use ornaments or pinecones, anything really. Use your hot glue gun to put them on the package. It makes a huge difference. Laurie Acosta, Red Owl Gifts, says let your own cre-

Chevron print is hot on everything this season. It’s a fashion trend now being found on wrapping papers, tissues, and gift tags. Assistant Erica Carbone says putting tags on the packages with your recipients name on it makes the package more individualized, as well as festive.

When it comes to gifts, presentation can be an important factor, say local shops in the midst of the biggest gift-wrapping season of all. “Sometimes it’s more important than what’s inside the box,” said Sandra Brucato, a floral designer at The Flower Shop at Cheshire Nursery, and a master of gift-wrapping. “I think presentation is very important. The gift wrapping and decorating is for me, the most fun.” To help spruce up your gift-wrapping skills, and make packages standouts this season, here are tips from local gift wrap wizards: Anita Bruscino, owner of Elegant Touch Fine Gifts says, number one is organization. Work at a counter that’s a good height for you, and make sure you have the right equipment, wrappings and supplies, at hand. Neatness counts. If you’re wrapping a box, a nice crisp corner counts. To do that, it is critical to cut to the right size. That just takes practice. Trim here and there to get the correct length, and in that way get the corners right. It’s trial

property was added, a sixfoot tall metal fence on one side and a four-foot tall metal picket fence would surround the entire property, and 12 additional parking spaces were added. Residents who spoke at the hearing said while they thought the changes were positive, they do not believe Marbridge belongs in the neighborhood. “I don’t agree with the project at all. When I look out my living room window, I see Marbridge. When I look out my dining room window, I see Marbridge,” said neighbor, Rich Frappier. “The bottom line is it’s not a good idea. I’ll agree to knocking down the existing building and putting in something that’s reasonable.” Another neighbor, Matt LaFrance, said despite the changes, he didn’t favor the expansion. “I see a lot of positives, the things that have been addressed tonight have been positive, but a facility, in my opinion at 20,000 square feet is still too large,” he said. “Property values will be affected and I still feel it does not belong in our neighborhood.” La France’s wife, Erica LaFrance, agreed with him, adding that she is also concerned about Marbridge residents. “The second concern is the supervision of the residents. I see people with mental impairments, walking and talking to themselves. How can five or six staff members know where the residents are?” she said. “I don’t understand how the same number of people will be able to monitor them.” Bower has said that no more than five or six staffers are working at any one time. Neighbors said that although the traff ic patterns were approved by the Connecticut Department of Transportation and the Cheshire Police Department, See PZC / Page 16

CL&P warns about green dot scam 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 prepaid 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 bal-

automated phone system. CL&P does not require customers to purchase any type of pre-paid card to pay their bill. Customers have several payment options, including direct debit, credit card, and personal check. It is important reminders for consumers to always remain vigilant for potential fraud or identity theft, and protect their personal information. CL&P offers the following tips: · Don’t give out information such as your Social Security number, account number or mother’s maiden name unless it is truly necessary to complete a transaction and you have verified you are speaking with an authorized company representative.

· When using online and mobile technology, use passwords that have at least eight characters and include numbers or symbols, and don’t give your passwords to anyone. · Research online entities so you know who they are. · Make sure you check your web browser and virus protection software for updates regularly.

Customers should not provide any type of payment or financial information, and should call Customer Service immediately at 1-800-2862000, and local law enforcement, to report the incident.

scribe,â&#x20AC;? said Minute Clinic State Practice Manager Marleen McGuire. T h e c l i n i c s a re n o t equipped to draw blood or take X-Rays, McGuire said, but the staff can perform many of the things that one would normally go to a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office for, like weight management, smoking cessation, cholesterol and glucose level checks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to develop a relationship with the nurse practitioner,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps to have somebody on your side in any area of health.â&#x20AC;? Pharmacy clinics are part of a growing trend in health care and serve a need, according to Angela Mattie, Quinnipiac Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair of the department of health management.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We as patients want the flexibility that fits in with our crazy, busy schedules,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a demand from patients to have the flexibility that, coupled with the growing shortage of primary care physicians, makes this the right option.â&#x20AC;? Mattie added it also makes more sense for people to go to a walk-in clinic for care for minor things like sore throats, rather than to go to an emergency room at a hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right alternative,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a much more appropriate use of resources.â&#x20AC;? The clinics are open seven days a week and take all major insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, McGuire said. Because of state laws, See Clinic / Page 11

they can only treat patients ages 5 and up. Currently, in Connecticut, patients are equally divided among adults and children. Though the clinics are stationed in CVS stores, prescriptions can be filled at any pharmacy. “We know pharmacy relationships are really important to people,” McGuire said, The walk-in clinics in Cheshire and Southington are on a first-come, first-served basis, the website said. “We are looking at having a texting component, so you can do your shopping and then come back,” McGuire said. Patients are also referred out to doctors in the community when the need arises, she said. McGuire added that the main focus of the clinics is not only to provide services on a walk-in basis, but to find out the needs of individual communities and address them. “Our goal is to help people in communities,” she said. “To provide the services that are important to them.”

Father Bob was an inspiration By Rev. Stephen Volpe

boisterous, humor-full, very down-to-earth man of God who touched many lives in profound and eternal ways. I know the Fr. Bob Ricciardi, you are time of the missed, and there is no reyear it is, yet, placing you. Fr. Bob was one under the of those rare individuals who guidance of could be successful at whatthe Cheshire ever they put their hands Clergy to. Bearing this in mind, Fr.

did, though, he wanted to let us all know about the condition of the refreshments the bulletin promised us following worship. Fr. Bob said, “There ain’t none! Sorry!” in such a tone and affect that you could not help yourself but laugh along with him – there was never any room for disappointment with Fr. Bob. He went on to explain why there weren’t any, but by then, it was quite okay. Now, here’s why I loved Fr. Bob – he had a way about him that simply by his presence you felt the presence of God. He could bring people together. He brought healing and hope. He brought heaven to earth and made it real to whomever he met. He will always be an inspiration to me, and to all who were fortunate to have known him. He continues

to live on in the hearts of those who now, more than ever seek to emulate his style of humble leadership. He never thought of himself more highly than anyone he spoke with, and was always fully present with you in the moment. When Fr. Bob listened to you, you were heard. He always had a smile for everyone he ran into, no matter how he was feeling. We were all so blessed to have known such a rare and amazing man who served God with all of who he was. We continue to pray for the congregants of the St. Bridget’s R.C. God be with you all, especially in this time of the church year. (Rev. Stephen Volpe is clerg y for T he Cheshire United Methodist Church, 205 Academy Road.)

him, but all of us whose lives he touched as a result of responding positively to God’s invitation. As the president of the Cheshire Clergy Association, I would see Fr. Bob now and then at our meetings. He was such a shepherd to the people he loved, that try as he might to make our meetings, he just couldn’t get away from showering the love he had for those under his charge. Having said that, however, many of us can recall with fondness how he seemed to relish being a part of the Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service. I’ll never forget the expression on his face at the first Thanksgiving Eve Service we had while he was pastor at St. Bridget’s R.C. It was the end of the service and he had been given the benediction to pronounce. Before he

School system in red, says board member By Eve Britton

The Cheshire Citizen

The school district is running a $200,000 deficit, it was announced at the Dec. 12 Board of Education meeting. “It’s mostly because of tuition for outplacement costs,” board member Tony Perugini told the board. He added that they hoped to recoup the costs in May when the state looks into the situation. “As a result, we have a freeze for discretionary accounts,” he said after

the meeting. The board voted unanimously to appoint Gerry Brittingham as chairman, Sandy Pavano as vice chairwoman and Marlena Soble as secretary. School Superintendent Greg Florio, on behalf of the schools, recognized Brittingham for his work on Veterans Day events at the high school.

set to open its third location on North Colony Road today. Mozzicato is a family-owned bakery and pastry shop offering traditional pastries and desserts, such as cannolis and Italian cookies, as well as wedding cakes and breads. Rino Mozzicato and his wife, Gisella, opened their first pastry shop on Franklin Avenue in Hartford in 1973. In 1975, the couple purchased DePasquale Bakery, also in Hartford, and added it to their operation, according to the Mozzicato’s website. According to the website, the Hartford-based bakery expanded in 1978, which is when Mozzicato Caffe was founded. To support its growth, the Mozzicatos renovated the bakery to increase retail and production space. In 2001, the bakery opened its second pastry shop in Plainville. The Route 5 location, a former KFC restaurant building at 731 N. Colony Road, was sold to the bakery in June. Contractors have spent months working and redesigning the building to trans-

form the former fried chicken restaurant into a pastry and dessert shop. The outside of the building no longer features the red and white stripes of the KFC brand, but light brown bricks with a large “Mozzicato DePasquale Bakery and Pastry Shop” sign. With a new tile floor and glass cases ready to display the cannolis, Italian cakes and cookies, the storefront resembles a pastry shop. In addition to traditional Italian pastries, Mozzicato’s will also offer customers pizza, gelato and even calzones, Rino Mozzicato said. “We were planning on opening earlier,” said Rino Mozzicato. “We’ve been working diligently to make it look good.” Rino Mozzicato, who played a key role in expanding into Plainville, said a Wallingford bakery allows the business to better service its customers. “ Th e p e o p l e o n t h e Wallingford-Cheshire line will come here, and the people on the Southington line will come to Plainville,” Rino Mozzicato explained. “We’ll be able to service more clients.” Doreen DeSarro, the business recruiter for the town’s Economic Development Commission, said she was looking forward to the opening. “I can’t wait,” she said. “It’s going to be a plus for Wallingford ... They’ll do very well in town and I think people will really appreciate what they have to offer.” Larry Hurowitz, owner of Fran’s Pastry Shoppe on East Center Street, said he hopes there will be plenty of business in town and in the area for the numerous shops and bakeries. “The bakery business isn’t what it used to be,” said Hurowitz, who has been in the pastry business for over 30 years. “Now, you can go into Stop & Shop or Walmart and buy something. It’s not the same.”

Dawn Cestaro, Cheshire Hollow Farm When I was growing up my uncle would sleep on our couch on Christmas Eve. He was our favorite Uncle (Richard). On Christmas morning my sisters and I would be waiting, looking out the windows onto our long driveway, for our grandparents to arrive with our other Uncle (Paul). Gifts in hand seemingly too big and bulky to carry would end up filling our living room. Coming from an Italian family, my mother would be mostly in the kitchen preparing the feast listening to us ask endlessly when will it be time to eat. Delicious

smells and Christmas music filled the air. As kids we just wanted to dig into those presents and eat all the oncea-year food that we could! We had such a sweet grandmother. She would be overwhelmed with emotions and

ories rush back to us, to fill our minds and remind us of all the truly memorable holidays past spent with friends and family. For instance, my husband talks about making sugar cookies during the winter holidays, first with his grandmother ... then with his mother ... then by himself ... and finally with his own child, his daughter. One of my own most favorite holiday memories was the Christmas I received an unexpected present. Not only did my husband suddenly “remember” the gift from its hiding place under the couch, but it was the very painting I had admired for better than a year, at a restaurant we frequented. It was a terrific surprise, and one I will never

Captains of crunch time By Paul Rosano

Special to The Citizen

CHESHIRE — Cheshire took the lead for good early in the fourth quarter on a Missy Bailey free throw and then held off rival Hand down the stretch for a 48-41 SCC interdivisional victory in the season opener for both schools Dec. 11. Bailey, a senior captain, scored a game-high 24 points, including four 3-pointers all in the first half and four free throws late in the game. “Especially for our first game, to be tested like that, with decision making at the end, I thought our three seniors came through, kept us calm, made good decisions,” Cheshire coach Sarah Mik said. “Sara Como comes in and hits the free throws. I know we were 9-of-23, but we made them when we wanted to sway the momentum. You never know how a team’s going to respond in that situation and I’m so proud they handled it in that way for Game 1.” Como (9 points, 7 rebounds) made those two free throws in the last minute as the Rams kept Hand at bay. Bailey’s free throw with 5:58 left in the game gave

Cheshire a lead it would never give up as Hand scored only three points the rest of the way. Hand, which shot well in the first half, had trouble in the second as Cheshire picked up its defense and rebounding. The Tigers scored only 13 second-half points, including one field goal in the fourth. “We switched a couple things up,” Mik said. “We’ve known in the past they have very good shooters. So we were able to at least stop that and get our hands on the rebounds in the second half.” Cheshire also got its hands on Hand’s shots. Junior Jill Howard had six blocks to go along with five rebounds and four points, and as a team the Rams made seven steals. Cheshire led at 12-11 late in the first quarter, but Hand came on and scored five points, four on two Sophie Joel (6 points, 6 rebounds) layups to take a 16-12 lead at the end of the quarter. Cheshire chased Hand in the second quarter, but the Tigers maintained a 28-24 lead at the half behind six second-quarter points from Cassidy Wygonik (6 points, 6

rebounds). The Rams went ahead 37-36 after three, paced by Bailey’s eight points, mostly on drives to the basket, only to give up the lead, 38-37, at the start of the fourth when Lily Taylor (9 points) scored on a layup. But Bailey’s free throw a minute later set the tone for the rest of the game. Lauren Brandau finished

with a team-high 10 points for Hand. “In the first half, we relied on (Bailey’s outside shooting). Bry (McIntosh) was the only one to get to the foul line,” Mik remarked. “So we said, ‘We can’t live and die by the three, we’ve got to start looking at other angles,’ then (Bailey) started to drive a little bit more.”

McIntosh finished five points, five rebounds and three steals. Cheshire 59, Hamden 52 (OT): Missy Bailey hit a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, then went 6-for-6 at the stripe as the Rams pulled away in the exSee Basketball / Page 32

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 to make it a 7-0 lead less than 3 minutes into the game. On the Hawks’ first play of their next drive, Bailey crashed in on Jack Pinho to force a fumble after Pinho caught a short pass. Witold Gul scurried down from his safety spot and completed the scoop-and-score with a 27yard runback for a 14-0 lead. Woodland clawed its way back into the game with a pair of defensive stops and a solid drive to open the second quarter. Tanner Kingsley hit Joe Poeta with a 37-yard strike to get the Hawks into the red zone, and Kingsley popped a 14-yard run on the next play to make it a 14-6 game with

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.
