A trip to remember for Latin club

For many it was a once in a lifetime opportunity when Cheshire High School Latin teacher Virginia Swan arranged a whirlwind trip over February break. She along with 10 Latin students headed abroad for destinations that included: Venice, Rome, Naples. Pompeii, the Isle of Capri and Florence. “The pace was hectic,” Swan said. “But you want the kids to see and do as much as possible, with the hope they will come back and see it again at their own pace.” Those on the trip included

CHS seniors: Saparja Nag, Olivia Druckrey, Emilia DePalma and Meredith Bryden; and sophomores: Alicia Gray, Katherine Wang, Cullen Clairmont, Charles Biddiscombe, and Ruth Sussman. Leah King, a sophomore from another school also went, as did the mother and younger brother of Olivia Druckrey. Highlights of the trip featured climbing the 300-plus steps to the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, and exploring the catacombs, underground burial tombs, in Rome. At Capri, students took a boat ride on the azure waters to see offshore grottoes. The

group also walked through the Roman forum, as well as the coliseum. The trip included a visit to the legendary Pompeii, site of the Mt. Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.D. There students toured the home of Caecilius’, a character featured in students’ Latin textbooks. Students posed with a bronze statue of Hercules in the Vatican museums. The museums have more than 1,400 rooms, which makes it one of the largest museums in the world. Swan said “there are only about 15 lifesize bronze statues left from

Comic, cartoon museum in Cheshire evokes playful memories

Citizen photo by Eve Britton

Tour guide Benjamin George stands next to the Batman display at the Barker Character Comic and Cartoon Museum in Cheshire. By Eve Britton The Cheshire Citizen The converted barn is packed, floor to ceiling with colorful toys, games, dolls, lunchboxes, figurines, posters, movie props, and more.

Every nook and cranny at the Barker Character Comic and Cartoon Museum on Highland Avenue holds a piece of toy history, from two 1873 tiny, movable, cast iron elephants, to current Harry Potter and Twilight memorabilia.

Music from TV shows of past years plays from a small CD player at the entrance to the museum, where people first enter the dimly lit barn. The lights are actually being dimmed by Beanie Babies hanging from the ceilings. Museum Curator Judy Furst said the museum gets about 10,000 visitors annually. “Some people make this an annual trip,” she said. “Though we’re crammed with stuff, we’re still buying and rotate the collections periodically.” Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and under, and free for those 2 and younger. “It’s a very inexpensive attraction,” she said. “It’s something designed specifically for families.” “It’s awesome,” said Megan Matto, of Stratford, who brought her children to the museum recently. “It’s really neat jogging my memory.” Furst said that is a common reaction. “People love seeing toys they’ve forgotten about,” she said. “It stirs up memories you didn’t even know you had.” As she spoke, local resident Ron Gagliard, a museum See Cartoon, page 17

Little comment, small turnout for town budget proposal By Eve Britton The Cheshire Citizen Town councilors had little to say about the proposed budget as it was presented to them March 13, at the first public budget hearing, which was attended by two members of the public. “What we face is a challenge,” sighed Chairman Tim Slocum, as Town Manager Michael Milone and Finance Director James Jaskot began their presentation. Milone and Jaskot explained how expenses, key costs, revenues, the tax rate, fund balance policy and reserves figured into the proposed plan. The 2013-14 budget, as presented, would raise taxes by 3.93 percent, a jump nearly four times as much as last

year’s 1.02 percent increase. In the past four years, taxes have raised an average of 1.81 percent a year. Milone said there will be a significant loss in state aid from the PILOT program, in which the state makes payments in lieu of taxes for the state-owned prisons. Over the years, the funding has declined and is expected to fall about $4 million more this

Building panel awaits go-ahead on locker room project By Eve Britton The Cheshire Citizen

The Town Council’s Public Building Commission decided last week to work with the blueprints already purchased by the Board of Education in rebuilding the controversial Cheshire High School boys’ locker room. “We paid for the drawings and we have to take that into consideration,” said Commissioner Art Crocker. That is, if the Town Council formally decides tonight, to turn the project over to the commission.

The Town Council was set to make a decision at its last meeting, but not enough councilors were present to take action. The matter was on the agenda for the March 11 council meeting. Commissioners made it clear Monday that because of additional planning, there is no way the project will be completed this summer, as had been planned. “This project can’t move forward. I don’t feel anything is clarified yet,” said commission Chairman Mark Nash. “They (the Town Council) will want to get this thing

fast-tracked, but it isn’t going this summer.” The three other commission members agreed that because the project is still in the design phase, there would be no way to get the locker room completed by the beginning of the coming school year. “It’s frustrating that we’re back to square one with this,” said Vincent Masciana, school district director of management services. “But they’re cleaned every night, sanitized ... we’ll make it through another year.” A total of $500,000 in funding for the project was approved by the council four years ago. The 25-year-old lockers serve 15 sports teams. Officials describe some of the lockers as unusable and point out that the showers are dilapidated and have poor ventilation because the room was formerly a wood shop. School officials had presented the Town Council with a $2 million alternative plan to build a field house, handicapped-accessible, freestanding boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, handicapped-accessible public bathrooms, storage facilities for athletic equipment, drama and graduation supplies, a press box, and expanded concession stand.

The commissioners planned to meet March 18 at the high school to inspect the boys’ locker room facilities, the girls’ locker rooms and the two gyms. Commission members met last week because they wanted to get a head start on the project and look over the massive blueprints, which include a schematic, building plans and all design phases. The commission had not had seen the plans, created by BL Companies, until then. Commissioners tasked Masciana and staff to get a License 0674304

full set of plans for each member from the architect. They also want an updated cost estimate because the plans were last updated in 2011. “Things change, things happen,” Nash said. The group also decided that should they be given the project, they want input from companies that specialize in locker room and locker designs. “It doesn’t hurt us to have someone else look at it, maybe be able to get a few more lockers in there, make better use of the space,” said Commissioner Joe Barba. The designs provided to commissioners last night show a locker room that should last about 20 years, Masciana said. Before any bids go out or any other action is taken, Nash said, he wants to make sure that all plans are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and to have the town’s fire marshal and building inspector look over the property and plans. Then the commission will look at whether or not an elevator to the locker rooms or a ramp is the best access to the facilities. Contact Eve Britton at ebritton@record-journal.com.

Police contract may go to arbitration By Eve Britton The Cheshire Citizen

lican Andrew Falvey abstained. The pension issue “was significant,” Zullo said. “Most of the other things were settled. We had a good, open dialogue throughout the negotiations.” Other issues included reorganizations in shift schedules, changes in command (from five lieutenants to three), contracts and medical plans, Zullo said.

“I’m a little bit disappointed,” said Police Chief Neil Dryfe. “I thought we had something agreeable to both sides.” Dryfe added that police will continue their duties until a resolution is found. “The members of the department will still do their jobs. It’s not like anarchy will reign,” he said.

Ruocco said he voted against ratifying the contract specifically because of the pension issue. “We just can’t afford it. Somebody retires with enhanced benefits? That’s nuts,” he said. “I don’t get it. Based on the state of the economy, the state of pension

The Police Department contract is likely to go to arbitration now that the Town Council has rejected it. Town police have been working without a contract since June 30, despite negotiating for more than a year. The council late Tuesday voted 5-2 to reject the proposed contract after meeting in executive session. The pension plan was the key issue and the reason councilors voted against ratification, said Tom Ruocco, who voted against it. The proposed change in the pension plan closed the plan to new hires but increased the “multiplier” for retirees from 68 percent to 72 percent. That means that new hires would not qualify for the pension plan, but officers already on the force would leave with 72 percent of their pay, as opposed to the 68 percent in the previous contract. A new hire straight out of the academy would

make $44,473 under the old contract. A lieutenant, also under the old contract, makes $75,519, according to Louis Zullo, the town’s personnel director. Voting against ratification were Republicans Sylvia Nichols, James Sima, Tim Slocum, David Schrumm and Tom Ruocco. Democrats Patti Flynn-Harris and Peter Talbot voted for it, while Democrat Michael Ecke and Repub-

The Cheshire Citizen — Thursday, March 21, 2013 should have seen it coming. “The handwriting was on the wall,” Keeley said. “You could have foreseen this coming for years now. It’s unfortunate because they could do things.” Milone responded that

there was no way they could have seen this coming “and our initial reaction is to fight like hell to get it back.” “The bottom line is that the state is shifting, by transferring state debts to municipalities,” said Councilor David Schrumm. Milone explained that councilors should look at using money from the debt service fund, to help defray operating costs. The debt service is money the town owes on capitol projects, bond measures and similar items. Since the town does not expect to see a rise in its debt service payments until 2017, when some of the costs for the proposed wastewater treatment plant will come

due, Milone suggested using $1,168,436 annually through fiscal year 2020. The fund, which stands at more than $5 million now, will not be decreased as the town expects to receive money from the state’s Local Capital Improvement funds. The money from the debt service will not fix the budget problems, but it will help, Milone said. “I recommend we use the debt service and reserves as revenue rather than cut services,” he said. In addition, councilors talked about raising rents on some of the facilities in town, particularly the Birth-toThree program at Darcey School, which serves chil-

“We had what can be only classified as great success.” The mission of FIRST Robotics is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster wellrounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

Time and timing was crucial in the early days of railroads. In order for schedules to be met and train travel to be safe, railroad companies played a large part in setting high standards for American timepiece technology. Shown is an example from a dealer’s collection at the CHS March train show. It’s an Elgin Montgomery dial pocket watch that is more than 100 years old. It was made in Pennsylvania. More than 80 vendors of train accessories and paraphenalia were on hand for hobbyists.

Cheshire High progressing on ADA, Title IX issues By Eve Britton The Cheshire Citizen Most of Cheshire High School doorknobs are now levers. The softball field now has a dugout (just like the baseball field), and student handbooks are now updated with information required under state standards. But, the school still has many summers of work left

Cartoon Continued from page 3 docent, came in to donate a vintage Barbie airplane that his 8-year-old granddaughter had outgrown. “I’m glad it has a new home,” he said, showing the plane to Furst. The museum was opened in 1997 by Cheshire residents, Herb and Gloria Barker, who had been collecting old toys and animation art for many years. Their first museum was opened in West Hartford in the 1980s, but they wanted one in their hometown. The Barkers opened an art museum in the old farmhouse next door in 1995. It features animation cells, original paintings, baseballs autographed by Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio, lithographs and other memorabilia, all for sale. The prices range from $24.95 for framed lithographs to $8,000 for an autographed Charles Fazzino piece of 3-D artwork. The West Hartford Museum is now closed, but the Barkers have another art gallery in Florida, where they now live. Many of the first items they collected came from tag

before it is fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title IX requirements. The Americans with Disabilities Act requires schools and other facilities open to the public, to provide the same access to services for people with disabilities as they do for able-bodied people. Title IX requires that in sales, including one of their first purchases, an original Mickey Mouse animation drawing that they bought for 10 cents. One of the rarest items in the museum is a tube of 1934 Mickey Mouse toothpaste, according to tour guide Benjamin George of New Haven. The tube is made of toxic lead and was recalled, “I don’t think even Disney has one,” he added. The museum doesn’t just have firsts and lasts of items, it has everything in between, most items kept delicately in well-maintained glass cases. “These are all the toys I lost in a move,” George said, as he looked forlornly at the display of Pee Wee’s Playhouse items, located in the bottom of one of the cases. “Lots of people say that they lost their toys in moves.” And, if they look hard enough, they can probably find most of them in the museum.

schools, girls sports and facilities be of equal quantity and quality, respectively, to sports offered to boys. “The best way to say it is we expect for corrections to be addressed in a reasonable timeframe,” said Adrian Wood, compliance officer for the state Department of Education compliance officer. “And, in general, that’s sooner, rather than later.” He said a reasonable time frame is relative, dependent upon what is considered to be a major capital improvement project and how much funding is involved in completing the project. Wood said Cheshire High School has been “proactive” in terms of getting ADA projects completed and is on par with other schools regarding its work timeline. This summer, school district officials plan to tackle the library, changing out carpet, removing asbestos and moving the book stacks so that the aisles between them are wider, said Vincent Masciana, director of management services for the

Cheshire schools. This summer, the school system had also planned to rebuild the boys’ locker room, but that work is being tabled by the Town Council, which says it needs more information. Masciana said he will meet with Principal Jeff Solan in early spring to discuss what items may be moved up on the list, depending on what the operating budget can handle. The Town Council Building Committee’s chairman, Mark Nash, said he thinks complying with ADA and Title IX regulations should be among the top priorities for Cheshire High School. “That to me, is something we really need to focus on, not that you have a choice anymore,” “But that’s where the forward thinking really comes into play.” He added that in making upgrades and repairs to the school, officials should be looking at longevity. “We need to look at 30-year life cycles,” he said. “That’s the highest and best use of the funds.”

In summer 2014, school officials will work to upgrade the science and technology programs, making the equipment more handicapped-accessible. Also that summer, outside projects and work in the culinary arts program and cafeteria are slated for redesign. In 2015, further work in the science and technology classrooms is scheduled. And, the special education classrooms will be made handicapped-accessible. Fire alarms will be added and accessibility to physical education facilities will be modified for ADA compliance. All the improvements necessary for compliance will cost $2.7 million and that funding will have to be approved by the Town Council, Masciana said. So, he said, the timeline could conceivably change.

The Cheshire Citizen — Thursday, March 21, 2013

Sandy Hook workers’ fund signed into law State Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, along with a bi-partisan group of legislators, joined Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, March 12 when he signed legislation into law establishing a special fund to assist individuals who suffered psychological trauma as a result of their work related to the Dec. 14, 2012 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Lawmakers in both houses of the General Assembly cast a unanimous vote to approve the legislation. Bartolomeo, who is chair for the Select Committee on Children, represents Cheshire, Meriden, Middlefield and Middletown. Also in attendance at the signing were Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra and Newtown police Captain Joe Rios. The Sandy Hook Workers Assistance Fund will be funded through private donations and provide support to volunteer and professional workers, including first responders, school employees, and others, who are suffering from mental health issues as a result of the tragedy. Traditional workers compensation does not currently cover most workers for exclusively mental injuries. “While almost three months have passed, the anguish of that day is still raw for many. The creation of this fund will allow first responders, school employees, and other professionals and volunteers who so bravely responded to this horrific event to receive the support they deserve,” Malloy said. Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R-Fairfield), whose district includes Newtown, was at the signing. He said “One of the most important things we can do as a community and a legislature in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy is provide our neighbors – many of whom have witnessed unimaginable horror and violence – the resources they need to heal. This fund is an important step in that direction. I’m grateful for the generous support of the many civic-minded Connecticut-based organizations and private citizens who have helped make it possible.” (Information provided by state Sen. Dante Bartolomeo’s office and Gov. Dannel Malloy’s office.)

Commentary

State’s social services offers new online access

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has announced the launch of a new, user-friendly webbased service for the state’s Department of Social Services that gives the agency’s 750,000 clients the ability to check on the status of their benefits online and provides members of the general public with a pre-screening tool to learn about which services they may be eligible for. The service, which can be found online by visiting www.connect.ct.gov, marks the first step of the department’s wide-ranging “ConneCT” modernization initiative, designed to bring 21st

Century technology to an agency working to keep up with record demand for food and medical assistance. “While today’s launch of this new web service is just the first step, it’s one of several important upgrades the department will be undertaking in this crucial modernization process,” Malloy said. “If we are going to streamline services and reduce costs, we must bring the tools DSS uses to ensure that our elderly, children, families and adults receive adequate services into the 21st Century.” With the new online serv-

ice, Connecticut joins many other states in offering clients the ability to set up online accounts to check the status of benefits, much like banks, stores and credit card companies provide. Dubbed “MyAccount,” the feature allows DSS clients the ability to track a variety of information, including SNAP (food stamps), HUSKY/Medicaid and other benefit information. Data is stored securely and can be accessed by computer or smartphone at any time. “This series of technological improvements will gradually change the service

The “atmosphere of the trip was very comfortable, even in a city as vast as Rome,” he said. Clairmont explained that to see what they learned in class was “impactful.” This included the sculpture of Bernini, which was mystifying in its great detail, he said. Going to a different continent was an incredible experience for Charles Biddiscombe. His favorite places were Venice and Florence and he will remember the

landscape at DSS for the benefit of Connecticut residents, the agency’s dedicated staff, and taxpayers in general,” Malloy said. “We are literally taking an agency from obsolescence in terms of overwhelmed phones and laborious paper processing into the modern age of business systems. The online services are just the start.” “In addition to helping families and individuals across the state, this customer service measure will free our hard-pressed staff from fielding many of the routine requests for information that detract from actual casework,” Commissioner Roderick L. Bremby said. “This will help improve overall efficiency and reduce the frustration levels of clients who have difficulty getting through on the phone.” Also available at www.connect.ct.gov is the new “Am I Eligible?” interactive pre-screening tool, which provides visitors with a list of services for which they may be eligible to receive after having had submitted confidential answers to a series of questions about their household. The pre-screening takes about 15 minutes to complete. Over the next year, DSS is preparing to launch additional “ConneCT” features, including a statewide, tollfree interactive voice-re-

Hearing continued on Franciscans’ chapel

Commentary

Too much technology can be a distraction By Kyle Swartz Handheld technology in school offers much for students and staff both. But there is a downside in this increasingly common practice. At a certain point, kids can become so distracted with computerized devices that they lose attention of teachers, and lessons at hand. Area academic districts have rightly begun implementation of various programs which permit youths to bring iPads, laptops and/or smartphones into classrooms. Computer technology has thoroughly proliferated in everyday life in recent years. Its beneficial inclusion in schools is only natural. Positives are numerous. Carrying electronic tablets that seemingly contain a library’s worth of written works, kids no longer have to lug around bulky textbooks. For teachers who can weave tech into curriculum, handson learning possibilities with these devices are practically endless. In math class, pupils can calculate logarithms and graphs on an iPad’s calculator function, and then next period in art can finger-paint on the touchscreen. All of information is now but several keyboard clicks away. But abundant capabilities of digital devices also cause their problems in schools. Any teacher is familiar with this next scenario. Presenting a subject to pupils, they recognize some kids as clearly not

taking a gamble and that’s going to cost the town about $20,000. We could lose what we’ve already negotiated. We’re taking an unnecessary chance.” “At this point, the union has no comment,” said spokesman James Fasano. “But regardless of what happens, we care about our community and we will continue to come in and do our jobs every day.” Contact Eve Britton at ebritton@record-journal.com.

A hearing on the replacement of the Franciscan Life Center’s small chapel with a much larger one has been continued by the Planning and Zoning Commission, so that the sisters may address neighbors’ concerns about parking and increased activity, according to Town Planner Bill Voelker. The nuns at the center want to replace the 800square-foot chapel, at 267 Finch Ave., with a 6,048square-foot chapel because the current chapel is too small for all the nuns and staff to attend services, according to Sister Suzanne Gross, administrator of Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care. Gross attended a March 11 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.

The larger chapel would incorporate the smaller chapel and be used more as a meeting room, Gross said. It would cost roughly $1 million to build, she said. The current chapel has been around since the 1980s. The first chapel burned in 1987, when the adjoining residence hall for the nuns caught fire. It was rebuilt in 1988. The current chapel seats 48 and the private services are held at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. “It was never intended to be a public chapel, and right now it’s too small for us,” Gross said. The added structure would serve as the new chapel and would seat 55 to 60 people. Services would still be private, she said. While most of the campus is on the Meriden side of Finch Avenue, the chapel and

adjoining residence are on the Cheshire side. “We hope the public sees this is a positive and whatever we do, we’ll keep the neighborhood well cared for,” Gross said. The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist campus was founded at the site in 1974. The campus was expanded in 1995, and now offers services ranging from counseling and adoption services to home care and hospice care, as well as camps for young people, education programs and ministry services. The nuns provide services to more than 1,500 people and families monthly. The public hearing will be continued at the April meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission, Voelker said.

plans, we have to pull back.” Peter Talbot said he voted to ratify the contract because it was not only the prudent thing to do, but it was what had been negotiated. “I think the agreement was already put in place and it’s what we agreed on,” he said. “We’re now on a path toward binding arbitration. We’re basically rolling the dice and

following along, because these students are engaged with smartphone texting or browsing Twitter on an iPad. Even students who attempt to multitask with handheld technology during class do not give learning their full attention and miss out. Important, then, is for teachers to direct technology usage in classrooms based on personal preferences. There should be parts of lessons in which instructors talk to students and students talk back. Engaging, mentally stimulating discussions become dampened when pupils are preoccupied with digital hardware. Of course, in many instances, youths have been losing focus in schools for as long as education institutions have operated. Instructors are correct to think, however, that iPhones present greater opportunity for attention diversion than an open classroom window. What amount of handheld devices is appropriate for any given day is a matter of teacher discretion. During school there’s a time for tech. But there also arise numerous occasions when staff and students gain by putting away these devices and commence engaging one another academically without digital distraction.

Plenty of drama on championship weekend CIACsports.com

Girls basketball Class LL Mercy 54, Lauralton Hall 53: Mercy of Middletown spent the final 3.8 seconds of Saturday’s CIAC Class LL final going from, “not again”, to, “are you kidding me?” Maria Weselyj made a 3pointer at the buzzer to give the top-seeded Tigers an improbable 54-53 win over No. 2 Lauralton Hall of Milford at Mohegan Sun Arena. It looked like Mercy was about to lose its fourth straight final after Michelle DeSantis made a layup with 3.8 seconds left in the game to give the Crusaders a 53-51 lead. The play was made possible by Maggie Salandra’s steal with 20 seconds remaining. Mercy called two timeouts to set up a play. Sheena Landy threw the inbounds pass from the baseline across halfcourt. The Tigers’ Cassandra Santoro somehow caught the Hail Mary in traffic and passed the ball to her right to an open Weselyj. Weselyj, who shot 3-of-9 from the field, got her 3pointer off just in the nick of time. Jordyn Nappi scored 13 for the Tigers (25-2) while Landy had 12 points and six rebounds. Maura Fitzpatrick added 11 points. Carly Fabbri scored a game-high 20 with three steals for the Crusaders (24-2) and Olivia Levey had 13 points and six rebounds. DeSantis scored 11. Class L Farmington 49, Bacon Academy 44: Sophie Borg and Brittany Belisle each finished with 11 points as No. 10 Farmington stunned topseeded Bacon Academy 49-44 to win the Class L state championship Saturday at the Mohegan Sun Arena. It is the first state championship in school history for the Indians (22-5), who led

virtually the entire way, going up by as many 12 points in the second quarter. Bacon Academy (24-3) was the defending champion. Taylor McLaughlin had a game-high 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats. Class M Cromwell 42, Notre Dame 28: Cromwell senior Lindsay Langenauer wasn’t going to end her high school career wondering, “what if ?” The Panthers struggled to shoot all throughout Friday’s CIAC Class M final, so Lindsay Langenauer helped smooth over the rough edges. She had a game-high 18 points and three blocks along with 11 rebounds as top-seeded Cromwell beat No. 2 Notre Dame of Fairfield, 42-28, to win its first state title and finish unbeaten at Mohegan Sun Arena. Cromwell (28-0) is the first girls’ team to finish unbeaten since Holy Cross of Waterbury did so in 2007. Junior Janelle Harrison had 13 points and a gamehigh 16 rebounds for the Panthers. Senior Kelly Flanigan added nine points, seven rebounds and three assists. Jovan Kingwood had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Lancers (23-5). Class S Capital Prep 84, Thomaston 55: Kiah Gillespie and her Capital Prep of Hartford teammates remembered the terrible feeling of they experienced losing in last season’s CIAC Class S final. The Trailblazers made sure that they never gave Thomaston a chance in Saturday’s final. They blitzed the Golden Bears early and won, 84-55, in the Class S final at Mohegan Sun Arena. It was the first state title for top-seeded Capital (25-2). Its only losses were out-ofstate. Gillespie had 22 points and 14 rebounds for the Trailblazers while Desiree Elmore added 13 points, 11 rebounds and four assists. Shaquana Edwards added

18 points for Prep and Taylor Williams scored 11. Abigail Hurlbert had 28 points, 10 rebounds and four steals for No. 3 Thomaston (23-3).

Boys basketball Class LL Hillhouse 52, Fairfield Prep 42: Hillhouse of New Haven had already beaten Fairfield Prep twice prior to Saturday’s CIAC Class LL final. The third time was the charm — junior Raiquan Clark had a game-high 26 points with 12 rebounds as the No. 2 Academics beat topseeded Fairfield Prep, 52-42, to win a state-record 22nd CIAC title at Mohegan Sun Arena. Hillhouse (26-1) was the No. 1 team in the New Haven Register Top 10 media poll prior to the state tournament and will finish with that ranking. Prep was No. 2. Chaise Daniels had 10 points and seven rebounds for Hillhouse. Bobby Bynum Jr. added six points, five rebounds and five steals. Paschal Chukwu had 12 points, 16 rebounds and six blocks for the Jesuits (24-3) while Tim Butaia added 14 points and nine rebounds. Class L Woodstock Academy 52, Trinity Catholic 49: It would be understandable before this season if people didn’t put Woodstock Academy and state basketball contender in the same sentence. The Centaurs have rarely been a factor in the Eastern Connecticut Conference, let alone in a state tournament. But in the season opener back in December, they served notice by beating New London. And Woodstock Academy rarely stumbled since. The Centaurs’ capped its dream season with its first

state championship, upsetting top-ranked Trinity Catholic 52-49 for the Class L title at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Ian Converse had a gamehigh 23 points along with 11 rebounds, for the Centaurs (25-3). He hit two free throws with 5.7 seconds left to put the Centaurs up by the final margin. After Schradac Casimir’s deep 3-point shot missed the mark for Trinity Catholic, the on-court celebration began. Trinity Catholic, which was seeking its seventh state championship, finished at 253. Converse was the only player in double figures for the Centaurs. Sullivan Gard-

ner had a game-high 14 rebounds for Woodstock Academy. Tremaine Fraser led three Crusaders in double figures with 17 points. Fraser and Brandon Wheeler combined for 21 rebounds, but the Crusaders struggled mightily against Woodstock’s 1-3-1 zone, shooting just 33.3 percent from the floor. Class M Valley Regional 52, Weston 45: Chris Polo isn’t asked to be one of the primary scoring threats on the Valley Regional of Deep River boys’ basketball team. Polo sure picked his spots well during Friday’s CIAC

Class M championship. The senior scored all 12 of his points in the second half and added a game-high 15 rebounds as the fifth-seeded Warriors beat No. 23 Weston Friday, 52-45, to win the their second state title in three seasons before 3,874 at Mohegan Sun Arena. Chris Connor had 12 points and eight rebounds and Chris Jean-Pierre added 10 points for the Warriors (262). Senior Charlie DiPasquale had a game-high 24 points and junior Ashler Lee-Tyson scored 11 for the Trojans (1412). They began the tournament with a losing record, but knocked out three higher

seeds to get to the final. Class S Granby 83, Weaver 81: Brent Buser finished with 23 points and Michael Noyes added 19 points to lead No. 3 seed Granby to its first Class S state championship Saturday 83-81 over Weaver in double overtime at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Buser, who transferred in from Queens, N.Y. in the offseason, hit the tying 3-point shot with 3.4 seconds left to send the game into overtime for Granby (23-4). Buser also made a big steal and was fouled with 16.2 seconds left in overtime. He made the first free throw to put the Bears up 83-81. Chris Burt, who led Weaver with 23 points, had the ball bounce off his foot and go out of bounds for

Perron’s

Weaver with 3.4 seconds left in the double overtime. No. 25 seed Weaver (12-13) led by as many as 21 (40-19) early in the third quarter and by 20 (51-31) with 2:57 left in the third quarter.

Ice hockey Division III Newington/Berlin 1, Bolton/Coventry/Rockvill e 0: The co-op of Bolton, Coventry and Rockville entered Saturday’s Division III final with plenty of hype surrounding its defense after nine shutouts this season. But once again, it was Newington/Berlin’s defense that stole the show at Ingalls Rink in the Division III Final. Led by another memorable performance from goalie Drew O’Leary in net and a second period goal from Marco DiPaola, the co-op of Newington/Berlin defeated Bolton/Coventry/Rockville 1-0 in the Division III championship for back-to-back titles. It was the second straight season Newington/Berlin

Last March, Newington/Berlin stopped an equally dynamic offense in Northwest Catholic to claim its first state title. But on Saturday, the co-op, which added Manchester during the off-season, was even better. O’Leary made 16 saves and his defense did a great job of shutting down the Bolton/Coventry/Rockville offense, which was averaging 4.8 goals a game.

Boys swimming State Open Reaping State Open gold doesn’t get old for Greenwich High boys swim coach Terry Lowe. The Cardinals reclaimed their familiar perch after stumbling last season by outdistancing defending champion Fairfield Prep by 183 points Saturday afternoon at Yale’s Robert Kiphuth Pool. As far as swimmers go, Berlin’s Dan Klotz has seen his share of gold so he wanted to leave the scholastic arena more illustriously. Klotz became a two-time Open champion for the second straight season, but put his own stamp on the feat by shattering the state record in the 100-yard butterfly by nearly a half-second. Klotz touched in 49.34, breaking the mark (49.75) established by Dan Madwed of the Westhill/Stamford co-op

team in 2005. Earlier, Klotz cruised to victory in the 200yard freestyle in 1:40.31, eclipsing a personal standard set in the Class M meet a week ago. Greenwich has now won Open crowns in 30 of the 42 years the event has run, but recent events have shaken the throne. In addition to Prep winning last year, Pomperaug finished first in 2008 and 2010. Class L The four class state champion meets were held last week. Cheshire was 10th at the Class L meet, held at Wesleyan University in Middletown. The Rams were led by their freshmen. Karl Bishop was sixth in the 500 freestyle (4:55.19) and Mike Goodrich was seventh in the 100 breaststroke (1:03.85). Goodrich also teamed with fellow frosh Kyle Shadeck and juniors Brian Johnson and Patrick Morley as Cheshire finished eighth in the 200 medley relay (1:45.08).

Connecticut Wild Turkey: Restoration and Management Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. Michael Gregonis, wildlife biologist with the Connecticut State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, is scheduled to discuss the history, ecology, research, and status of the majestic eastern wild turkey. Wild turkeys were common in Connecticut when the first settlers arrived and are common today. Turkeys disappeared from Connecticut by the early 1800s due to the loss of their forest habitat and overhunting. In 1975, 22 wild turkeys from New York were released in the northwest corner of Connecticut. Today there are approximately 35,000 to 40,000 wild turkeys living throughout the state, having been successfully restored to all 169 Connecticut towns.
