Town Grants Raises; Won’t Buy Skylark By Linda Tishler Levinson EAST WINDSOR — Part-time town employees will be getting their first salary increase in years. The Board of Selectman voted at its Aug. 20 meeting to approve 3 percent raises for those employees. The raises were approved unanimously. Linda Kehoe, a clerk in the Building Department, had spoken at the Aug. 6 selectmen’s meeting to request the rais-

es, according to the minutes of the meeting. Kehoe told the selectmen that the part-time employees were asking for recognition as longtime employees who provide what she called a tremendous service to the town. The raises were given as a flat 3 percent raise for all part-time employees, rather than being determined on an individual basis.

Skylark Airport The selectmen also voted at the meeting to reject a proposal to buy the Skylark Airport. A motion was passed unanimously to send Kircaldie, Randall & McNab LLC, which owns the airport, a letter informing them that the town is not interested in the property. The proposal had been for the town to purchase the airport for $50,000, a fraction of the $2 million price at which it had been advertised.

East Windsor Lions’ 2nd Annual Tour de East Windsor EAST WINDSOR - The East Windsor Lions Club announced that United Bank will be a major sponsor of the “Tour de East Windsor” - a bike ride for sight. Joining United Bank as major sponsors this year are the following East Windsor businesses: • Family Dentistry • Geissler’s Supermarket • Stanton Equipment Inc. (a.k.a. Stanton Motors) One of the benefits earned by sponsors is having their company name highlighted on the T-shirts that all riders will receive. The “Tour de East Windsor” is a noncompetitive, community bike ride that takes place over the low-traffic, rural roads of East Windsor and Broad Brook. The ride, which takes place this year on Saturday, Sept. 28, benefits sight-related causes supported by the Lions Club. There are three ride options: a sixmile route designed for families, children, and less-experienced bicyclists, a 30-mile route designed for more experienced riders, and a 17-mile ride option for those who don’t wish to ride the full 30-mile ride. Each of the rides starts and finishes at the East Windsor Town Park on Reservoir Road. Registration is $25 until the day before the event (Sept. 27). The registration fee on the day of the ride is $30. Persons interested in more information on the ride should go to Facebook.com and type “Bike Ride For Sight” in the “search” box. A registration form can be found there.

East Windsor Second Annual Cardboard Boat Race Called a Success EAST WINDSOR - The American Heritage River Commission held its second annual Cardboard Boat Race on July 21, after being postponed several times due to high waters and unsafe river conditions. Proceeds went to the town’s Five Corner Cupboard food pantry. Each vessel crafted was quite unique. Enthusiastic paddlers entered their boats and were whisked into the moving water, over shallow rapids and some unintentionally aimed back to shore. Others hit bottom, injuring their boat’s base, while others paddled furiously to find the current and glide over the rocks, making their way downstream to the finish line. The River Commission hosts several

events throughout the year to bring awareness to our local Scantic River. Whether on land, along the hiking trails or in the water, commission members can be found working to keep this natural resource open for hikers, paddlers, fishermen, bird watchers, etc. The boat race was preceded by a Rubber Duck race, which was sponsored by the East Windsor BMX Skate Park committee. AHRC members and volunteers assisted with their event, depositing the yellow quackers into the river, dislodging any ducks that went astray and fetching them up at the finish line. To keep up to date with coming events, like the “American Heritage River Commission” on Facebook or email: ahriver@sbcglobal.net.

Ellington More Space Coming To Town’s Human Services Department By Linda Tishler Levinson ELLINGTON — The town Human Services Department will be getting some much-needed additional space, thanks to a state grant. The town learned in late August that it would receive a $250,000 grant from the state to expand the human services building at 31 Arbor Way, First Selectman Maurice Blanchette said. The additions and renovations will provide more office space for the department, Blanchette said. More

importantly, he added, it will create some smaller areas where human services staff can meet privately with clients. “There’s virtually no privacy when they’re interviewing their clients,” Blanchette said, adding this is a problem considering the sensitive nature of their work. The Board of Selectmen voted in August to officially accept the state grant. The Board of Finance will see the proposal for the addition project next. After that it will go to a Special Town Meeting.

Blanchette said that the town already owns the property for the project, and the state grant should cover the costs in full. In other business, the town voted in an August Town Meeting for the no-smoking ordinance. Under the ordinance, the selectmen can authorize signs on town property where smoking would be banned. They are taking requests from the Parks and Recreation Commission on the best placement for the signs, Blanchette said.

Music Together Class for Children with Special Needs To Be Taught at Arts From The Heart ELLINGTON - Music Together has announced the addition of Supportive Family classes, Music Together classes especially for children with special needs and their families.

Jane Roets, director, Arts From The Heart LLC, said, “Even though we wel-

Regional New Technology, Staffing Greet Students at New School Year By Linda Tishler Levinson As students return to schools across North Central Connecticut, they are being greeted by new staff members, finding new programs in place and in many cases using new technology. School systems also are making adjustments to align with the Common Core Standards being phased in by the state over next two school years. These standards are designed to increase achievement and better prepare for college or career. The standards also will aid in aligning what students are doing from one school system to another.

Somers Schools opened on Aug. 29 in Somers with several new administrators, including Somers Elementary School Principal Jennifer Oliver, Somers Elementary School Assistant Principal Dina Sencal, SomersHigh School Assistant Principal Dan Carroll, Director of Technology and Information Systems Robert Wilson and Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent Karen Brzezowski. New special education secretarial staff members include Holly Boutwell and Val Kalinowski. In what Superintendent of Schools

Maynard Suffredini Jr. called a “historic move,” full-day kindergarten is being offered this year. There are five kindergarten classrooms, two having been renovated over the summer to accommodate the need for more kindergarten classrooms. Suffredini said the schools are also expanding the iPad program, providing iPads to more students, moving toward what he hopes next year will be iPads for all high school students. East Windsor When students returned to school in East Windsor, they found 17 new teachers and seven new support staff, Superintendent of Schools Theresa Kane said. School started Sept. 3 for grades 19, Sept. 4 for grades 10 to 12 and will start Sept. 10 for kindergarten and prekindergarten. “We have done a lot of work in the buildings,” Kane said. That work includes a Community Health Center, scheduled to open at East Windsor High School in October. The clinic will be open to students and the community and comes in at no cost to the school system. “We’re very excited about the year

and very excited about the growth in CAPT and CMT scores,” Kane said. As the schools prepare for the Common Core, Kane said they have two curriculum committees working in English and math. Stafford Stafford students returned to school Aug. 28. Stafford also implemented fullday kindergarten, Superintendent of Schools Patricia Collin said. They also adopted the Calkins Program for elementary writing. New courses were added at Stafford High School, including personal finance and unified art, which allows collaborative opportunities in the visual arts for students with and without disabilities. The schools received a Public Education and Government Programming Technology Grant to provide video conferencing and to help prepare students for digital learning platforms. Eighth-graders will now be able to get high school credit for Algebra I and World Language I, Collin said.

Regional Ellington Schools Add Steel Drum Music Class to Offerings (continued from page 7) Also, Collin said, through collaborative efforts and community support a digital sign has been installed on Orcutville Road to promote homeschool communication. It can be programmed remotely and is operated by a generator. She credited Partners in Education for the initiative. Ellington Ellington students were greeted by 29 new certified staff when they returned to school Aug. 28, Superintendent of Schools Stephen Cullinan said. That’s “a lot of new people,” he said, adding that is about 13 to 14 percent of the staff. A number of security-related projects were completed over the summer, including many new surveillance cameras, keyless entry systems for the staff,

fencing around energy sources and barriers to prevent a vehicle from being driven into a school building. Cullinan added there are a number of other precautions in place, such as panic buttons, which when pressed lock doors and windows, new shades and strike plates, which prevent doors from being pried open. In all, $275,000 was spent to make the schools more secure. The district has applied for a state security infrastructure grant, which would reimburse 60 percent of the costs. The district also applied for a $350,000 technology grant, which would pay for computer adaptive technology needed for testing. New courses at Ellington High School include personal career planning, sports and entertainment marketing, AP advanced seminar in English language

and composition and statistics, as well as probability and statistics. There also are three new music classes: history of musical theater, song writing and steel drum band. There are two new art classes: jewelry and metals, and sculpture and 3D design. Enfield Enfield students returned to school on Sept. 3. “I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve the children and families of Enfield as part of a team of talented and dedicated teachers, administrators, and support staff. As I complete my first year as superintendent of Enfield Public Schools, the Leadership Cabinet and I

have reviewed our entry plan designed to ensure a smooth transition and to guide our work as we build on the longstanding excellence of our school system. Our listen and learn events provided valuable insights from the community,” Superintendent of Schools Jeffrey Schumann said on the school’s website. “As we look to the new school year, I am enthusiastic and excited about both the opportunities and challenges that lie before us. In a strong partnership with the greater community of Enfield, we will continue to strive to ensure that all students achieve at high levels and are prepared for college and career success,” he said.

Enfield Republicans Square Off in Primary; Yard Waste Pickup Changes By Linda Tishler Levinson ENFIELD — Town Republicans will be voting on councilmen-at-large candidates in a Sept. 10 primary. Party-endorsed candidates Patrick Droney, Michael Ludwick and Ken Nelson Jr. are being challenged for the Republican Party nomination for those seats by Carol Hall, Scott R. Kaupin,

Gregory T. Stokes Sr. and Donna H. Szewczak. Voting will take place from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 10 at four polling places. District 1 will vote at John F. Kennedy Middle School, District 2 at Enfield High School, Dsitrict 3 at Enrico Fermi High School and District 4 at Henry Barnard School.

Winners of the primary will compete for those Town Council seats in the Nov. 5 general election. Yard waste pickup Beginning in the spring of 2014, the town will be changing the way it picks up yard waste, such as grass, leaves and brush. This change does not include the fall leaf collection program, according to the town Department of Public Works. The town will only accept yard waste in brown tipper barrels when this goes into effect. The barrels are currently

being sold at a reduced rate of $25. Brown yard waste tipper barrels can be ordered in person at the Public Works Department at 40 Moody Road or by sending in the tipper barrel order form which is available online at www.enfield-ct.gov/dpw. Brown tipper barrels can be picked up at public works or residents can request delivery. They will be picked up on Fridays. These barrels are for grass, leaves and brush only. They may not be used for trash or bulky waste.

College for Teens Asnuntuck Community College’s Manufacturing Technology Center offered Summer 2013 College for Teens. The free program covered many topics including Additive Manufacturing, time in the machine lab and tours of the welding and electronics lab. From left, Dedra Dearborne, Nathaniel Rodriguez and Kevin Chase, with ACC instructor Dennis Borkowsky, participated in Asnuntuck Community College’s Summer 2013 College for Teens.

Somers Prison Work Crews Busy Sprucing Up Town Facilities By Linda Tishler Levinson SOMERS — The town has been getting some sprucing up, thanks to a program of the state Department of Correction. “Our DPW (Department of Public Works) Department has been working with CO (Corrections Officer) Paul Nault to have inmate work crews available to complete several maintenance improvement projects,� First Selectman Lisa Pellegrini said. The Historical Society Building on Battle Street is one of the town facilities that benefited from the program. There inmate crews worked on exterior painting, masonry repairs and repointing and general maintenance to the exterior of the building.

“We have been very impressed as to the careful attention to detail as they work on such a historic building,� Pellegrini said. At the Somers Volunteer Fire Department the crews painted the inside of the firehouse. They also painted the offices and completed the garage bay at the Police Department, as well as coordinating the public works to install a new fingerprinting station there. “We have seen a drastic increase in pistol permits, and the improvements made greatly improve the fingerprinting process,� Pellegrini sadi. Other projects completed include the sewer plant roof, and painting at Kibbe Fuller and the pavilion at the park on Battle Street.

For Vacation, Work, Travel...Any Time! Cynthia Bragg, Enfield, CT Pet Sitting & Dog Walking Email: Gone2thedogs24@aol.com Phone: (860) 670-5611

Next, the crews will work on painting at Town Hall and the DPW building. Recent changes in the inmate crew process have allowed them to be far more productive, Pellegrini said. Previously, the town had to provide tools and transportation, but the process took up nearly half the workday. Now the prison provides tools and transportation. “This eliminates so much wasted

time ‌ and enables our DPW workers to concentrate on roads, parks and field maintenance. We have had so many compliments on how good everything looks. I end up telling everyone that is what happens when you get everyone together to brainstorm on how to make things better. We have a wonderful staff and a very good relationship with the Department of Correction,� Pellegrini said.

Village Players Present ‘Play On’ SOMERS - Somers Village Players Fall Dinner Theater presents “Play On� by Rick Abbot. “Play On� tells about a local theater group putting up a show, written by a novice, local author. Rehearsals are marred by sudden illogical changes in the script, personality conflicts, and a blundering stage crew, creating all of the stage horrors that could ever occur. The result is a comedy of people driven, but not sure where or how. True to theater traditions, “the show must go on.� Directed by Gus Rousseau with tech-

nical direction by Justin Martin, “Play On� is produced by Kathy Welch. Included in the cast are Ryan Bird, Regina Erpenbeck, Ed Lewis, Sue Moak, Al Mulvey, Carolyn Robins, Joan Perkins-Smith, Doug Stoyer, Angela Taylor, and Christine Zdebski. The dates of “Play On� are Sept. 20, 21, 27, 28, Oct. 4 and 5, and is located at Joanna’s Banquet Facility, 145 Main St., Somers. Social hour is at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., and the show at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $35. Reservations are required.

Stafford Robert Randolph & The Family Band Only CT Appearance STAFFORD - Robert Randolph & The Family Band will make its only Connecticut appearance of its fall tour at the Stafford Palace Theater, 75 Main St., Stafford Springs, on Friday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m. The performance is in support of the band’s just-released studio recording, “Lickety Split.” Randolph’s unprecedented prowess on his instrument garnered him a spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list, and also attracted the attention of such giants as Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana, who have collaborated with him on stage and in the studio. Today, Randolph is known as the preeminent and most-renowned pedal steel guitarist in contemporary music, having brought the instrument and his Gospel rooted rock music to mainstream audiences. When Randolph talks about the new album, a few words come up over and over — joy, freedom, energy. All of which is no surprise really, because those are the same emotions that imme-

diately spring into a listener’s mind when these 12 tracks from the virtuoso pedal steel guitarist and his longtime accompanists, The Family Band, explode out of the speakers. “My thing is really upbeat, uptempo, with great guitar riffs,” says Randolph, summarizing his musical ambitions, “but also catchy choruses and lyrics that someday will make this music into classic tunes.” The new album showcases the unique chemistry of the Family Band—comprised of the guitarist’s actual family members Marcus Randolph, Danyel Morgan, and Lenesha Randolph, together with guitarist Brett Haas. Fans worldwide have taken notice of this American original, with audiences and critics alike singing the praises of this unique superstar. Admission is for 18 and older. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. For more information, call 860-8519780.

In addition, the Palace Theatre, Tom Bolles of Bolles Motors, Ron and Allison Piscotta, Bob Guzzo Fencing, Hobb’s Medical, Yankee Upholstery, and Chestnut Hill

Hyde Park is a special place, now appreciated by many, and recognition and thanks go to Pete Williams and his crew for maintaining the park in such

wonderful condition and in setting up the now-renowned dance floor. We also would like to thank Ron Proulx for his generous offer to build us a stage. Musicians and volunteers need provisions to keep going and so gastronomic thanks go to Subway and Basil’s for supplying nourishments. Transportation services proved essential to the running of the event and were made possible by vehicle donations from Ron Houle, Bruce Davis and Skip Ramsey. An event of this scope relies on the passion and dedication of volunteers and this year’s festival was graced with many. Lori Parrow of the Hyde Park

Commission went above and beyond the call of duty in her functioning as the Commission liaison. Howard Buckland and Howard Buckland, Jr. contributed a welcoming space, food and beverages for the musicians creating a Green Room second to none. Lori Vic of Willington Name Plate provided great support and services. Other notable volunteers were Joe Direnzo, Steve Dusza, Luke Hoss, Alex Hoss, Kyle Ramsey, Taylor GlaeserCharter and Chris White. Finally, special thanks to the vendors who had faith in the event. Ric’s CafÊ, Chile Brothers Food Co., First Niagara, Verizons and H&R Block all added to the festivities.

I love the fact that I become a member of the family. There is no finer compliment than that,” Geryk said.

Suffield School Year Starts with AllDay K, Improved Website By Julie Cotnoir SUFFIELD - The sun made its way through the clouds on Aug. 27 when just fewer than 2,500 Suffield students had their first day of school for the 2013-14 academic year. The first day of classes also marked a milestone for Suffield with 132 kindergarten students enrolled in the first full-day kindergarten program that the town has offered. Superintendent Karen Baldwin said a committee of stakeholders did its research when it came to making plans for this year’s kindergarten class. They focused on best practices, worked on curriculum and even did field trips to other school systems offering full-day kindergarten, to see how other communities serve some of their youngest students. Seven sections of kindergarten are being offered this year at Spaulding Elementary School. Also new at Spaulding is Principal Scott Dunn. Baldwin said parents and students had a positive meet and greet with the new administrator prior to the

start of school. Dunn takes over the position held by Angie Roman, who recently retired. The new principal comes to Suffield from the Simsbury Public Schools. “We are excited to welcome Scott,� Baldwin said. This is the first time Dunn has served as an elementary school principal. “The school has embraced me,� commented Dunn as he greeted students at the school, located on Mountain Road, on the first day of classes. He said teachers and staff had been working all summer to get classrooms ready for the students. Spaudling has received a facelift. Murals have been added to the walls inside. “We have outfitted them with technology,� said Baldwin, who noted that Smart Boards, iPad carts and computer workstations have also been added to the school. Improvements are planned systemwide for the schools’ website. A new

Alicia and Rick Neipp brought their two daughters Brianna and Natalie to Spaulding Elementary for the first day of school. Older sister Natalie pointed out to the school’s new principal, Scott Dunn, her younger sister Brianna’s dress. The dress is the same one the girls’ mother Alicia wore her first day of kindergarten.

Suffield Town Celebrates Boccasile’s 41 Years of Volunteerism By Julie Cotnoir SUFFIELD - Louis Guy Boccasile has been committed to his Suffield community for 41 years. Volunteering for his town, wherever he has lived, has played an important part in his life. The local businessman began volunteering at the Southwick, Mass., Fire Department as a high school student. In 1970 when he moved to Suffield he continued to donate his time for decades, first serving as a volunteer for Suffield’s fire department for 14 years and later giving of his time as a founding member and chairman on both the Landfill Commission and later the Public Works Commission for an additional 27 years. Last month Suffield’s Board of Selectmen presented Boccasile, a resident of West Suffield, with a Certificate of Appreciation during their meeting to thank him for his service and commitment to Suffield. Boccasile, the owner of Guy’s Auto Sales in West Suffield, said there are many others who volunteer their time to serve the town. His longevity in terms of

volunteering does set him apart from others. First Selectman Edward G. McAnaney says the town is grateful to Boccasile and to the many others who volunteer their time in elected and appointed office. “Volunteers are a vital part of operating this town,” he said, adding, “Volunteers are the lifeblood of the government.” McAnaney reminds citizens that those that serve on the Board of Education, Board of Finance and the Public Works Commission are volunteers. Volunteers also donate their time to the Suffield Ambulance and the Suffield Fire Department. The Board of Selectmen receive a small stipend. McAnaney, as first selectman, is a fulltime employee for the town. There are several other volunteer commissions in Suffield. Currently the town is looking to appoint citizens to the Historic District Commission and the Heritage Commision, according to McAnaney. Boccasile was a founding member for both the Landfill and Public Works com-

missions, noted the first selectman. “Operating the landfill on Mountain Road is a big part of the services the town offers,” McAnaney said. Both Boccasile and McAnaney say trash pickup and the landfill are things residents many times take for granted. According to Boccasile, very few municipalities own a landfill. Recycling has also changed the way the landfill operates, according to both men. “Most of the waste generated in a home can be recycled,” noted the first selectman. Boccasile has decided to step down as chairman of the Public Works Commission. He and his wife are looking forward to spending more time in Florida. Not wanting to be neglectful to his duties as chairman, he decided the best decision would be to step aside.

In terms of school security, radio connections have been strengthened. The district committed $40,000 to new, 128channel radios that allow for in-school, school-to-school use and communication with the police department. Baldwin said teachers and staff will continue to wear ID badges, video surveillance will

continue to be used and doors at all schools will remain locked. Two new teachers have been hired for the agrascience program offered at the high school. The district is anticipating having use of the new 5,000 square foot animal facility later this fall. According to Baldwin, work will continue on curriculum throughout the system and all levels will be working on having students meet the federal government’s Common Core Standards.

And the good news is the Odyssey continues to be a fine-running vehicle. It has class-leading fuel economy at 19mpg city and 28-mpg highway from its 248-horsepower, V6 engine that delivers the right amount of oomph when needed. I averaged 25.2 mpg in a week of mixed driving. The only knock on the Odyssey minivan? The EX-L Touring Elite I drove, which has all the bells and whistles, costs $44,450. You can buy one for $28,825 but that's a real stripped down model. Maybe manufacturers could make minivans appealing again if they found a way to make them more affordable.
