Local horse club thrives in ‘horse town’ By Joy VanderLek The Cheshire Citizen

Cheshire Horse Council members are riding high in the saddle after electing a new president and getting a fresh start on goals for the new year. Long-time member Bob LaRosa was installed as president Jan. 1. He will guide the group alongside Vice-President Gwendolyn Kichard; Carolyn Olander, secretary and past president, and treasurer, Noelle Johnson. The group will work on plans to increase its visibility in town, and residents’ awareness of the group. Approximately 40 families make up the CHC membership. Within the group, horse breeds run the gamut from Belgium draft horses

and mini-horses to quarter horses and thoroughbreds. “Cheshire has a minimum of 200 horses in town with about 10 stables,” LaRosa said. “This is a horse town.” Which is why LaRosa is puzzled when asked repeatedly by residents what the CHC is and where they are from. “Half the time, people will tell me they only found out about us because we march in the Memorial Day parade every year,” he said. CHC members also would like to expand on the council’s community service. LaRosa and the group has set its sites on continuing the work of former member Eileen Hunter. Hunter, who passed away in November 2013, was the president of the Morgan Horse Association, and long-time CHC member.

“She was well-respected,” said LaRosa, and instrumental in many CHC fundraisers and projects, and in a beginning program of equine therapy. LaRosa recalls one story involving Hunter and her horses that he found especially powerful. “She had taken several horses to the Masonic Home for patient visits,” he said. One horse put his head down to a patient who had suffered a stroke several years earlier and had not spoken. The man bonded with the horse, petting and talking to the animal. “Because of Eileen, that’s why we want to continue this [therapy horse visits],” LaRosa said. The CHC intends to reach out to various See Horse / Page 16

A family of six was displaced after a fire tore through their home on Hickory Lane the afternoon of Tuesday, Jan. 28. An off-duty firefighter saw the fire from Interstate 84 shortly after 1 p.m., said fire Chief Jack Casner. The firefighter reported it and checked to see if anyone was inside the two-story home. He rescued a dog. A cat was later found dead inside. With no hydrants close to the house, which is at the end of a long driveway, fire crews had to bring in a tanker truck, Casner said. “There was no cold weather impediment,” Casner said. “With the lack of hydrants it takes more time to establish a solid water supply, but it didn’t delay us applying water to the fire.” Crews also pulled water from Old Waterbury Road and had water on the fire within a minute of arriving on scene, Casner said. It took about 20 minutes to extinguish. Chloe Marcuccio, who lives in the house with her fiancée and four children ages 16, 15, 13, and 11, was arriving home from work when she saw the fire trucks. Marcuccio said she was told there was heavy damage to the kitchen and her daughter’s bedroom. Cheshire

Milone to review new schools budget By Eve Britton

The budget, which was Milone for review and recThe $67 million educa- ommendations, while school unanimously approved by the Board of Education last week, includes $856,000 for a new full day kindergarten program set to begin next school year. “It went well, and was passed as presented,” said school board President Gerry “Just a Heartbeat Away” Brittingham. “In this economy, we all understand the fi♥ Jewelry ♥ Perfumes ♥ Shea Butter Lotion ♥ nancial concerns, the difficult ♥ Romantic Everlasting Roses ♥ aspects of the budget.” ♥ Chocolate Truffles ♥ Unique Candy Gifts ♥ The budget asks for a 5 per♥ Inspirational Signs & Frames ♥ cent increase over last year’s “All gifts wrapped and ready for giving” funding from the town, which Create a Heart Warming Entryway this Valentine’s amounts to about a $3 million Day with Our Unique Door Decorations! increase for the 2014-15 school Custom orders are always welcomed. year, according to School 354 Main St., Durham (860) 349-1550 Superintendent Greg Florio.

happens again this year, not only will the full-day kindergarten program have to be scrapped, but district officials would have to “look at possibly cutting some existing programs,” Florio said. “I’m hopeful it’s going to fly,” Florio said. “I don’t think it will go through unchanged, but hopefully all-day kindergarten will make it.” To help fund its budget, the district has been using monies from its medical reserve fund, which now sits at an unhealthy $1 million, Florio said. Ordinarily, the administration tries to keep at least two months’ worth of funds in it. An average month uses $700,000, Florio said. This past December the district was hit with the highest amount in claims from the fund at $980,000, according to

Brittingham and Florio. Due to privacy concerns, the cause of the claims could not be disclosed. “I think it was a one-time hit though,” Florio said. “After years of relying on it, we have run it (the medical reserve fund) down and we can’t keep funding the budget from it,” Brittingham said. At this juncture, Milone will review the budget, then make his recommendations to the council by mid-March. The council will hold a public hearing and then vote on the budget this spring. “I’m feeling optimistic,” Brittingham said. “I’m willing, the whole board is willing, to meet with the Town Council. We’re just hoping for the opportunity. We’re always willing to work with the Town Council.”

Route 42 was closed Jan. 30 due to icy conditions causing multiple accidents during the course of the morning. Lt. Brian Pichnarcik said the road was closed about 8:20 a.m. due to four or five minor car accidents. “This area is routinely notorious for accidents,” he said. Pichnarcik said the icy conditions caused the accidents. One of the accidents involved a van rolling over on its side and the driver needed to be extricated, Pichnarcik said. The driver had a minor leg injury, Pichnarcik said. That was the only injury reported from the accidents, Pichnarcik said. The Department of Transportation came to the area to put an additional layer of salt down, and the road was kept closed for about 30 to 40 minutes. Th e s e c t i o n t h at closed runs from North Brooksvale Road to the Prospect town line, Pichnarcik said.

for the school district. “It will provide significant contributions to the town’s infrastructure at no cost to the town’s taxpayers. The goal is to make improvements to the town’s facilities.” The financing would be based on a 16-year payback, with none of the loan paybacks beginning until each project is completed, Masciana and Daylor said. With the estimated utility incentives that would come immediately, the town is looking for financing for about $9 million of the $10.2 million cost of the projects. One of the major projects would be converting part of Cheshire High School’s heating system that still uses electric heat to gas and making Highland School not only gas-heated, but equipped with air conditioning, as that is the school used for district summer programs, Masciana said. Other energy-saving measures would be taken at other schools, Town Hall, police headquarters, fire headquarters, the library, senior center, community pool and the Yellow House recreation center.

Foley announces new bid for governor By John Christoffersen Associated Press

WATERBURY (AP) — Republican Tom Foley, who narrowly lost to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy four years ago, announced Jan. 29 he is making another run for governor and promised to cut the sales tax and help cities address crime, poverty and other issues. The Greenwich man announced his decision at a VFW post in Waterbury, underscoring his effort to win votes in cities where Democrats have traditionally had an advantage. “Connecticut’s future is really as good as the future of our cities,” said Foley, a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland who spent more than $10 million of his own money on his losing bid in 2010. Malloy, a Democrat, has yet to announce whether he will seek a second term this year. Foley’s running mate from the last race, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, has already joined the field of Republican candidates, which also includes Senate Minority Leader John McKinney. Foley said he would keep discretionary spending flat for two years to cut the sales tax by half a percent. He also promised to implement an agenda to help cities by focusing on schools, crime, jobs, housing and poverty.

He said he would introduce inter-district school choice in schools not performing well, and promised not Tom Foley to interfere with local control of schools that are doing well. Foley slammed Malloy for a large tax increase, saying it put a brake on the economy. He said jobs are still hard to find and many people are unhappy with what’s happening in Connecticut. “Many believe that the state’s prospects have declined and the future is more uncertain than before,” Foley said. “I agree with those who believe we need a new direction and new leadership in Connecticut.” Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary, delivering the Democrats’ response, said Foley’s announcement was filled with promises. But “there were no specific details on anything, quite frankly.” O’Leary said the tax increase was needed to close a $3.5 billion deficit that Malloy inherited. He said the tax hike was painful but necessary and fair, and provided funding to cities.


Crafty way to make old crayons shine again By Amy Flory

Special to The Citizen

My kids always get new crayons for Christmas, so in January I’m looking for ways Amy Flory to get rid of the piles and piles of broken crayons in our house. Last year, I found this cute and easy craft on Pinterest, and decided to make heart-shaped crayons to give to my kids’ classmates for Valentine’s Day. They were crazy easy, so we’re making them again this year. The hardest part of this project is peeling the paper off of the crayons. My kids are forever peeling wrappers, so I thought they would love this task. They did not. They complained, and quit after about three crayons, leaving me to grumble under my breath while I peeled, peeled, peeled. This year, I soaked the crayons in cold water for a few minutes, and the wrappers practically jumped off the crayons. The kids loved peeling wrappers off of the soaked crayons. After peeling the crayons, See Foley / Page 13 11 Crown St. Meriden, CT 06450 Reporter – Eve Britton Features – Joy VanderLek News Editor – Olivia L.

Melt someone’s heart. with this crayon craft. break the crayons into smaller pieces. My kids were able to snap the narrow crayons themselves, and I chopped the fatter crayons with a knife. Then, the crayon bits went into a heart-shaped mold. There are many heart-shaped silicone molds out there, and I found mine at Target for about $3. Make sure you get the kind that is heat resistant, because the ice cube trays look very similar, but will melt all over your oven. The one I have can be used to make larger molds by setting it right side up, or smaller molds by turning it upside down and using the heart-shaped indent on the bottom. We’ve made them

both ways. You can either group your colors or throw them into the molds haphazardly. I’m partial to the color grouping, but my kids like the mixed color look, so we have both in our batches. Cook the crayons for about 10 minutes at 300 degrees, or until all the bits are melted. Let the crayons cool about 15 minutes or so, and when they’ve hardened, pop the crayons out of the mold. They come out super easy. Now the crayons are ready to be given as gifts, or shared with your neighbors and friends — and you can brag about how crafty you are.

Foley From Page 12

Malloy has been good to cities, O’Leary said, citing funding to clean up polluted properties and new businesses. Foley is seeking to qualify for public financing but said he has not made a decision yet on whether to use the money or not. Foley lost to Malloy by 6,404 votes. Since then, Foley created the Connecticut Policy Institute, a public policy research group that examines state issues. State Republicans are scheduled to endorse a candidate in mid-May, although a primary appears likely. Both McKinney and Boughton are among the candidates collecting the small contributions necessary to qualify for public campaign financing. Candidates for governor must raise $250,000 in contributions of $100 or less to participate in the program. McKinney, of Fairfield, raised $134,167 by the end of last year. Boughton, the seven-term Danbury mayor, reported a 2013 total of nearly $130,000. Foley has raised $131,827 after forming an exploratory committee. Candidates at the exploratory stage can accept contributions up to $375, but only those of up to $100 count toward qualifying for public financing. Wilton state Sen. Toni Boucher, who is also considering a run for governor, raised $66,659.

State funds to help Cheshire and Southington facilities The State Bond Commission today approved funding for the Cheshire Fire Training School and the Southington Senior Rep. Al Center, givAdinolfi ing both facilities an opportunity to further their missions within the 103rd Assembly District, which state Rep. Al Adinolfi represents. The Cheshire Fire Training School was one of five facilities throughout the state, funded by the Department of Administrative Services, to receive a joint $1.5 million grant to make capital and infrastructure improvements. The Town of Southington was named the recipient of $200,000 through the Department of Social Services to fund a planning

study for its Senior Center. Rep. Adinolfi serves as the Ranking Member on the legislature’s Aging Committee, giving him a leadership role in the state’s discussion on seniors. The five training schools receiving state funding are: Beacon Falls, Burrville (Torrington), Cheshire, Fairfield and Willimantic. The $1.5 million will specifically fund “design and soil hazardous material removal services” – part of a larger $46.2 million project covering all the state’s fire training schools. Of that, $1.2 million has previously been approved in accordance with a 2007 budget line item. The $200,000 to Southington’s planning study is a small portion of a larger $5.6 million allotment to social services, including senior centers, food banks, shelters and nonprofits.

the relay unit, which finished in 3:38.61. The squad also featured Alex Bauer and Kyle Shadeck. Michael Goodrich led a Rams sweep in the 100 breaststroke, touching in 1:06.33. Jonathan Quan was second and Gabriel page third. Wrestling Cheshire enjoyed its finest day of the season in winning all five matches at the St. Bernard Duals in Uncasville. The Rams beat host St. Bernard 54-30, Ellis Tech 4928, St. Paul 70-9, Rockville 6316 and East Windsor 62-21. Jake Cervero (138) and Gabe Vega (170) both went 5-0 with five pins. Captain Lucas Swan (132) and Mike Marotta, also went 5-0 and Karl Jacobs (145) was 4-1. Dan Lisath came back from injury to go undefeated with two pins shifting between the 220- and 285-pound weight classes. Freshman Ricky Pulisciano bumped up from 182 to 195 to win his first match of the season.

CHESHIRE — Lyman Hall scored in a flurry early and then again late to hold off and pull away from Cheshire on Friday night, Jan. 31. The Trojans had three players in double figures and knocked down nine 3-pointers on their way to a 60-42 SCC Housatonic girls basketball victory over the Rams at Cheshire High. Krista Petersen led the way with 15 points, seven steals and four rebounds as Lyman Hall improved to 12-3 overall and 4-1 in the Housy. Taylor Mierzejewski added 13 points and three steals, Kim Petit 11 points and five rebounds. The Trojans came out blazing, scoring the first 12 points

of the game, with Petersen hitting two threes in the run. After leading 14-6 after the first quarter, Lyman Hall extended it to 12 at halftime, 2816. Cheshire (9-7, 2-3 Housy) could get no closer than 10 points in the second. Cheshire’s Missy Bailey (nine points) started her first game since injuring an ankle back on Jan. 10 in a loss to Amity. She started cold, going scoreless and missing four threes in the first half, but she helped Cheshire cut Lyman Hall’s lead to 40-37 by the end of the third quarter with two threes and three free throws. In the third, the Rams outscored Lyman Hall 21-12 and cut it to 32-29 with 2:37 left on back-to-back threes by Bailey.

WA L L I N G F O R D — Whenever SCC Housatonic rivals clash, no matter the field or court, the game is sure to be hard fought by both sides. Two boys basketball teams at the opposite ends of the division did battle Friday night, and while the division fire was there, the competition wasn’t. The Cheshire Rams rolled over the host Trojans of Lyman Hall, 75-45, to remain undefeated in league play. Junior guard Andrew Yamin led the way for Cheshire (8-4, 4-0 Housy), scoring 19 points and setting the tone at the top of Cheshire’s 2-3 zone defense, which stifled Lyman Hall early and created a number of fast break buckets. Guards Jon Rizzo (12), Collin Jordan (11) and Dylan D’Addio (10) also scored in double figures for the Rams.

the lead early and used a 14-5 run at the end of the first quarter to build a 27-13 lead after one. Lyman Hall kept it competitive in the second quarter, scoring nearly basket for basket with the Rams. Cheshire took a 43-27 lead into halftime, then blew the game open in the third quarter with a 17-2 run that spanned the frame’s first five minutes. The Rams outscored the Trojans 25-7 in the third. The Trojans were able to outscore the Rams 11-7 in the game’s final frame, but with most Cheshire possessions consisting of dribbling and kick-outs, it was all for naught. The win brings Cheshire to 4-0 in the SCC Housatonic with division games coming up against Shelton and Amity. “The Housy’s got a long tradition and that comes out in every division game,” Lee said. “The most important play is the next play, and at the end of the game the most important game is the next game, which is the mentality we’ve taken all year.”

“We knew we wanted to come down here and get after it,” Yamin said. “It was good for us to come out, get a good start, and keep it rolling throughout the game.” Lyman Hall head coach Jim DiNello complimented the Rams, whose defense stifled the Trojans (3-11, 0-5 Housy) all night. “It’s not so much about what we don’t do, it’s about what Cheshire doesn’t let you do,” DiNello said. “Their rotations are so good on defense, they get out and run in transition. They’re just a complete basketball team.” The story of the game was the hustle of Cheshire’s zone defense, which clogged passing lanes and trapped Lyman Hall dribblers in confusion. The pressure the Rams got was exactly what their head coach Dan Lee was looking for. “It’s what they’ve done all season,” Lee said. “The big thing is to communicate on every pass, and I thought we did a good job. Those are the type of things that get us into transition.” The Rams jumped out to
