Lenten Mission

Rev. Fr. David Cinquegrani and Dr. Brandon Nappi of the Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford will be leading the 2013 Lenten Mission at St. John Catholic Church, Cromwell, Wednesday, March 6, and Thursday, March 7, from 7-8:30 p.m. The theme of the mission will be “Courage to Hope”. The mission will explore how we can move through life grounded in God’s presence no matter what our circumstances are. There are times when doubt and challenges creep into our lives; we begin to feel an absence of God in our lives, causing us to lose our grounding in the faith that was once a source of strength. This mission will bring us closer to God through music, laughter, liturgical dance and dynamic talks. Also featured will be the renowned cellist Kathy Schiano among other musicians.   There will be refreshments each night and one or both speakers will be available to meet and greet the audience. Admission is free.

Fungal Problems Athlete’s foot is often spread in areas where people go barefoot, like public showers or swimming pools. There may be mild scaling and itching, or painful inflammation and blisters. Commonly, it starts between the toes or in the arch. The condition may spread to the bottom or sides of the foot. A mild condition will respond to over-the-counter medications. Stronger medications may be prescribed if condition persists. Fungus may also affect the toenails. This results in thickened, discolored and sensitive nails which may become infected. There have been advances in both topical and oral anti-fungal medications resulting in better success with treatment. In some cases, the toenail may be permanently removed. If you suffer from fungal problems, contact the Connecticut Foot Care Center nearest you for an appointment. One of our foot specialists can suggest the most appropriate treatment for your individual fungal problem. www.ctfootcare.com • Follow us on Facebook & Twitter!

SROs Considered at School Security Forum by Mark DiPaola A vocal group of Newington residents has petitioned the town for the addition of a student resource police officer at every school in the district, just one measure that has been suggested amidst a community-wide discussion on post-Sandy Hook security. Residents in support of such an initiative let themselves be heard before a panel of town officials that included Newington Mayor Stephen Woods, Superintendent of Schools William Collins, and Newington Police Chief Richard Mulhall at a school security forum held in the high school auditorium Tuesday night. “I definitely think you need an officer in every school,” said resident Bill Prestace during the

public comment segment of the forum. “You need plexiglass [for the windows].” Newington High School has a student resource officer, or SRO. Student protection is only one small component of an SRO’s job, Mulhall explained. The officer serves mostly as another administrator with a focus on providing support to students and the rest of the school’s community, he said. The forum began with a Power Point presentation led by Newington Director of Resident Security Richard Klett. Klett presented a slew of existing measures that includes electronic locks, surveillance cameras that can be viewed by the police department and from smart phones, and a student, faculty, and visitor lanyard I.D. system. “We are a district that is regarded as a leader in school safe-

ty,” Collins said. “We have had other schools come to our district to see how we do things in terms of technology.” While many of the town residents praised the existing measures, some are looking for a little extra. Lisa Dunbeck, who has two children attending school at the elementary level, presented the panel with a petition containing more than 200 signatures, requesting that an SRO be placed in every school. “While everything we have is great, I think what Newtown showed us is that we need to do something more,” Dunbeck said. Others, however, expressed apprehension about the possibility of having what they envisioned to be an armed police officer patrolling the schools. “I don’t want my children hurt

any more than these parents,” said Amy Lindsay. “[But] I don’t want my children around guns. I don’t send them to a house where they have guns. I won’t send them to a school where there are guns.” While the addition of SROs has been considered, nobody intends to have an assault-rifle carrying “Rambo”-style presence, Mulhall said. The officer’s primary responsibility would be to foster the community and run anti-bullying programs within the school, he said. Other questions pertained to the cost of more SROs, although most residents that spoke in support of such a measure said that it would be worth the monetary price. “As far as the 500-something thousand dollars, I pay a lot of taxes in this town, and I’d be willing

to pay more to do this,” Prestace said. Although the Board of Education and Town Council have collaborated more in brainstorming school security measures in the Newtown aftermath, the Council can only authorize funds, not mandate how the Board utilizes them, Woods said. “We could actually put in [funds for] SROs, and they could decide we need technology,” Woods said. “Not saying it’s going to happen, but it could.” SROs are not a cure-all because the problem is not that simple, other residents contended. “We’re looking at treating the symptom,” said John Callahan. “We got to start treating not just the symptoms, but the cause. We have to get guns off the street. We have to treat mental health.”

Striking Healthbridge Employees Allowed to Return by Mark DiPaola Striking HealthBridge Nursing Home employees are to be allowed to return to work under current labor contract conditions, a three-judge Second Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled on Wednesday. The court denied HealthBridge’s bid for a stay of a Dec. 11 injunction mandating that the company’s workers be offered their jobs back. Almost 600 HealthBridge employees have been on strike since July over benefit-slashing labor contract reforms and a contentious negotiation process. “It’s a huge step forward, and an expected one,” said Deborah Chernoff, Communications Director of the New England Health Care Employees Union. “We’re certainly gratified but not surprised. This justifies the position we had before--that HealthBridge has not been bargaining in good faith.” The National Labor Relations Board is still taking HealthBridge to court on charges of labor practice violations for last December’s lockout of Milford workers and the company’s decision to terminate negotiations and move forward under a new contract before the strike began, amongst other issues. That trial is expected to resume in February. The court’s denial provides relief to workers who have been striking without a salary and benefits since the sum-

mer, Chernoff said. “You can’t wait for every step of the legal process,” she said. “By the time we get to the end of that, it could be years from now. “It prevents [HealthBridge] from using that delaying tactic.” Contract revisions proposed, and later imposed, by HealthBridge included reduced hours, a 50 percent cut in the number of sick days, higher health insurance deductibles, and the elimination of an employee pension system in exchange for a 401K retirement plan, among others. A 2 percent annual wage increase and one-time 4 percent raise as compensation for benefit changes were part of a final offer the company made in April. HealthBridge has cited higher healthcare costs as reason behind what prompted the adjustments, and has called the union’s bid for a restraining order “an abuse of injunctive powers.” “We are disappointed that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has decided to deny HealthBridge’s petition to stay the December 11, 2012 U.S. District Court’s decision pending further consideration by the Second Circuit,” said HealthBridge spokesperson Lisa Crutchfield in a press release issued Wednesday. “We will review the decision and weigh our options.” HealthBridge has alleged that resident name tags were incorrectly placed, causing confusion for members of the

Brown Bag Lunch & Learn

The Lucy Robbins Welles Library introduces a new series of free lunch time programs to showcase online databases that are available for use in the library or from home. The Brown Bag Lunch & Learn series kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 27 with an introduction to Learning Express and Universal Class.  Learn how to take continuing education courses from home, in some cases earn CEUs, prepare for standardized tests or improve your computer skills.  Each program begins at 1:00 p.m. and is one hour long.  Everyone is invited to bring a brown bag lunch.  Desserts and beverages will be provided.  Call the library at 860-665-8700 to register or for more information.  Subsequent programs are scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, for Consumer Reports and Chilton’s Auto Repair; Wednesday, April 24, for JobNow and Reference USA; May 22 for Morningstar and LegalForms and June 26 for Novelist.

replacement staff that are unfamiliar with the patients. The company cited testimony from Lorraine Mulligan, who, with 25 years of experience in nursing, was brought in by HealthBridge to assess the impact of the strike on patient safety in its Newington, Danbury, Westport, West River, and Stamford facilities. According to Mulligan’s testimony, the nameplates of 14 residents with dementia were swapped, creating the risk that a member of the replacement staff might inadvertently administer treatment to the wrong patient. Residents who suffer from dementia are often unable to identify themselves, she said. HealthBridge has blamed striking employees for the mix-ups, claiming that an injunction mandating their return poses a safety risk to patients. Although the allegation has been made, a thorough investigation has yet to be conducted, Chernoff said. The company has, however, encouraged striking workers to “cross the picket lines” and return to the job, Second Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Robert Chatigny noted in making the ruling. These statements contradict HealthBridge’s allegations, Chatigny said. “That makes no sense if they honestly believe that workers acted in the way they allege they did,” Chernoff said.

Town Council Won’t Review Ethics Board Appointment by Mark DiPaola A recent appointment to Newington’s Ethics Board prompted the Town Council to call for a discussion on, well, ethics--a bid that was denied by a 5-4 vote Wednesday, Jan. 23. Weeks ago, Councilor Jay Bottalico called into the question the appointment of Barbara Demaio, claiming that it would constitute a conflict of interest because she is chair of the Democratic Town Committee’s nominating committee. “They just refuse to look at the ethics ordinance,” Bottalico said. “I don’t know what they’re afraid of.” His request, however, was for a broader look at an ethics ordinance that, in his interpretation, was meant to prohibit

town committee members from serving on the ethics board. The rule actually only excludes committee chairs, vice chairs, secretaries, and treasurers, which means that Demaio qualifies. “The language is very clear--that it’s only the four officers of the town committees that are not allowed,” said Councilor Terry Borjeson. Newington’s policy regarding Ethics Board appointments runs parallel with surrounding municipalities. Out of 28 nearby towns, only Glastonbury had an ordinance against committee member participation, Borjeson said. “If you didn’t have the people on the town committees get on those commissions, you probably wouldn’t have any-

body to serve,” he said. “It’s a Catch-22.” But Bottalico’s gripe might run a little deeper. Although during the meeting he abstained from stating exactly what led him to suggest a review of the ordinance, Bottalico later said that he is looking to establish a rule that would prohibit elected officials from doing business with the town. Bottalico proposed forming a subcommittee to evaluate the existing rules and discuss the implementation of new ones, but those voting against it say there is not enough time to deal with that right now. “We got a lot of other things to worry about--the budget, Toll Brothers, the bus way,” Borjeson said.

Activist Takes on Gun Control, Mental Health Issues by Katelyn Kelleher Wethersfield activist Carmen Saez has testified for more than 50 bills in front of Hartford’s Judiciary Committee and continues to testify in hot-button issues such as gun control and mental health. Saez, who suffers from bipolar disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, uses humor to make her impression. “I always try to make them laugh; humor gets you a thousand miles,” she said. “You gotta have some facts, but be sarcastic.” The volunteer activist testifies on matters that are far from humorous, though, most recently for second amendment rights and mental health treatment. “In 2010 I was fighting for people who had guns to report their gun missing so it doesn’t fall into the hands of criminals,” she said. “There’s a low statistic of people [with registered guns] who do crimes. It’s usually stolen guns that fall into the wrong hands.” Saez said she takes two positions on the issue. “I’m stuck in the middle--I respect the NRA [National Rifle Association] in the sense that I don’t always agree with them, but anyone who sticks

up for the second amendment that we have the right to bear arms,” she said. “But they don’t want to do background checks and gun show checks. There’s a limit, I feel, that they can work something out for the bigger magazines, like maybe only have them at hunting ranges.” She also takes several stances on mental health, affirming that mental health physicians have a responsibility to report imminent behavior. “[Patients] go into counseling and they end up saying ‘I’m going to kill her;’ they’re not reporting things that become future crimes,” she said. “They need to make it easier for police officers to get the 72-hour restraining order for them to get hospitalized.” Saez also fights on mental health patients’ behalf for funding for their proper care. “It concerns me, especially with budget talks cutting funding, that social services will take the first hit,” she said. If that happens, “in the future you’re going to see the tragedy. If [mental health patients] don’t get the help they need, that’s going to lead them to more despair and more depression.” Saez believes in finding a

Activist Carmen Saez makes a point to take all views into consideration before choosing her own.

middle ground solution whenever possible, which is why she always waits until she hears all arguments before testifying.

“If it was as simple as saying ‘Oh, this is the second amendment’ or ‘Let’s fight the NRA, they’re the big bad wolf,’ it’s not,” she

said. “It’s not just funding, it’s not just mental health; it’s a community banding together and caring about each other.”

Students Donate Blankets in Honor of Newtown by Mark DiPaola Amidst the outpour of nationwide support that followed the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, residents of Connecticut, where the tragedy hit particularly close to home, rose to the aid of WETHERSFIELD BOARD OF ASSESSMENT APPEALS Notice is hereby given that said Board shall be in session at the Town Hall, 505 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, Connecticut, to hear grievances on the October 1, 2012 Grand List and the 2011 Supplemental Motor Vehicle List.

the grieving Newtown community. The organization Peace, Love and Blankets, a group of high school girls in Wethersfield, also wanted to help, but the town, citing an excess of donations during the weeks following the tragedy, actually stopped accepting items. That didn’t deter them. Peace, Love and Blankets, has, as the name implies, made a name for itself donating homemade blankets to disaster victims-at home and overseas--homeless veterans, and individuals fighting cancer, amongst others. Their latest campaign, 26 Acts of Kindness, sent 26 blankets to a first grade class at The Rawson School in Hartford. “This has been a great experience,” said Alex Hoffman, a Wethersfield High School senior

and organization member. “I’m glad I got the chance to help so many people in so many places during my high school career.” The group did not stop there, however. Within the same week that they made their donation to The Rawson School, they gave 42 blankets to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. “I really feel like we have made a difference in people’s lives,” said Megan Lemieux, another organization member and high school senior. “When people are going through a hard time, whether it is from a natural disaster, a death in the family or a horrific tragedy, I feel like our blankets and words of kindness can make things a little bit better. I think we have touched the lives of many people all over the world.”

For Hoffman and Lemieux, along with fellow seniors Kristen Humphrey and Jillian Massaro, it marks the end of a run that started with a hobby. Hoffman and her sister Lian, a member and underclassman, developed a passion for sewing blankets, one that was passed down from their mother, Beth. Since the group’s launch, the girls have made more than 400 blankets and donated to people in four states and seven different countries. After Hurricane Sandy, they mobilized to deliver 50 blankets to the ravaged community of Breezy Point. “Being able to change so many people’s lives has been lifechanging for me as well, and it has really opened my eyes to how important it is to give back to those less fortunate than us,” Massaro

said. The seniors are moving onto college, but for the group itself, the legacy is still in the making. The departing members said that they will stay in touch as advisors to the underclassmen that will be taking their place at the reins of the project. “They are great role models,” Lian said. “I would also like to thank the parents for all the time they put in to helping us organize everything. Since the rest of the group is going to be graduating, more people have been recruited to be a part of this group. It is going to be different but I still look forward to making more blankets and helping out those who are in need, locally and even around the world.”

When approached, Rocha-George was found to be in possession of a facsimile firearm, 8.9 grams of marijuana, 1.0 grams of salvia, 13.5 MDMA pills and a large amount of small plastic bags, which are commonly used for sale of the narcotics, police said. Rocha-George was charged with possession of weapons in a vehicle, sale, carry and brand of facsimile firearm, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, manufacture/sale/distribution of marijuana and possession of greater than 1/2 oz. but less than 4 oz. marijuana, police said.

Rocky Hill & Cromwell? With Westlake

Rocky Hill Council Discusses School Resource Officer by Katelyn Kelleher The Town Council discussed the possibility of implementing a School Resource Officer (SRO) at Rocky Hill High School during a departmental presentation Monday. Police Chief Michael Custer explained the SRO would be an officer carefully selected to provide protection for the school. “It would be counterproductive if our SRO’s were making arrests for every little thing,” he said. “Anything of a minor nature would be up to the [vice] principal…They determine whether they’re going to call us or not.” While some councilors felt

implementing an officer in the school would have a “Big Brother” effect, Town Manager Barbara Gilbert said the officer would “have multiple facets besides walking around the schools with guns.” “I remember going to the bomb drills and curling under my desk,” she said. “Today we do lockdown drills and we train and we train and we train, but we can’t board up the windows and lock the doors. We want our kids to go to a friendly environment and we’re trying to come up with a happy medium.” “Lockdown procedures are getting rather interesting, as I know you know,” Councilor

Philip Sylvestro said. “Relative to traumatizing kids and getting kids a little scared, it’s way above and beyond what a single SRO officer would cause in any building.” Mayor Anthony LaRosa reiterated that the officer would have to be carefully chosen. “I read here on the news week after week some of these zero tolerance laws that they have in the boards of education across the nation that they’re throwing these kids out of schools and ruining their lives [over minor incidents],” he said, adding the SRO has to be handpicked to know how to deal with these situations at their discretion. “I think they’re a great

addition to the school. They’re not going to be marching around the halls all day long. They’re not going to be Big Brother, but the people in the community are going to know Big Brother’s in there to protect their children and their community. Rather than looking over the students, looking out for the students.” Sylvestro said one of his concerns with implementing SRO’s has to do with the officer’s discre-

tion. “In many cases, the school system has far less discretion, because of the way they structure themselves, than the police officer,” he said. “What is that relationship between the officer in that building and that principal when conflict and disagreement occurs between the officer and principal regarding an incident in that building?”

Cromwell Man Charged in Accidental Shooting by Katelyn Kelleher A Cromwell man faces charges after accidentally shooting a Middletown man in the chin. Emzy Barker, 50, of 39 Woodbridge Ln., reported to police at 3:23 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, that he “may have accidentally shot his friend,” police said. Police determined the incident was an accident and Barker was charged with reckless endangerment and unlawful discharge of a firearm. Barker was released on $5,000 non-surety bond for a Feb. 12 court appearance.

Business Spotlight Pets, Etc. by Katelyn Kelleher What started out as watching a few ‘patients’ while their owners were on vacation turned into a successful pet sitting business for veterinary technician Lisa Ruglio. Pets Etc. began 14 years ago through word of mouth advertising and the Glastonbury-based pet sitting business has expanded ever since, serving the Newington, Wethersfield, Glastonbury and West Hartford areas. “I was a vet tech for a long time in Glastonbury and people would always ask if I knew anybody who takes care of dogs while they’re away,” Ruglio said. Ruglio, who still works as a vet tech part-time in Tolland, offers mid-day dog walking and pet sitting while owners are away and is fully qualified to administer medications.

“I do have a lot of elderly dogs that need special medications where I have to give insulin,” she said. Ruglio looks after dogs and cats, but also exotic pets, including birds, guinea pigs and fish. During house visits she’ll take care of mail, garbage, plant watering and, of course, the pets, just like no one had left. Dogs going for a walk have an opportunity to socialize. “The dogs, unless people have six dogs or something, they basically can all go out together; they all get introduced separately and people will tell me if their dogs can be off their leashes,” she said. “I just pick up all the dogs and we go off somewhere.” Ruglio, fully bonded and insured, meets her clients, but more importantly their pet, before taking them on as a client. “If I can’t get in the

house or I can’t get the leash on the dog, it’s not going to work,” she said. Though over her 14 years as a pet sitter there have only been a few dogs that didn’t take a liking to a stranger in

the house, Ruglio said she commonly gets attached to the pets, especially the original walking crew she started out with who have sadly passed away. “I get attached to them,”

she said. “Some of them are really near and dear to your heart.” Pets Etc. can be reached at 860-633-2833.

(Make your request). There are none who can withstand your power. Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee. Holy Mary, I place this prayer in your hands (3 times).

By Andrea Ladd Realtor Prudential CT Realty I’d like to introduce a monthly article that deals with all topics Real Estate. I have been in the residential Real Estate business since 1989 and through the years I’ve learned a few things I hope to share with you. The Real Estate market is cyclical, in 1989 we were coming off a booming market that started in 1984, so frenzied was it that agents were writing contracts on the hood of their car! By 1990 we started to see a slowdown and then the bottom fell out, as a new agent I was dealing with short sales and foreclosures. Sound familiar? Well, what goes up must come down and vise-versa, in 1998 the housing market took off again with 15-20% gains in some years. It was a 10 year run but once again in 2007 we started to see a slowdown and in 2008 along with the stock market the real estate market crashed! There are differences and similarities to both cycles, differences being in 98 the mortgage interest rates were averaging 7-9%, and unemployment on average was 6.5%. Presently, interest rates have averaged 3-5% and unemployment has averaged 8-9%. Similarly, the mortgage lending guidelines during both upswings were extremely loose and then tightened dramatically with the tragic amount of short sales and foreclosures. Likewise in both cycles the northeast was the last to feel the down turn and the last to recover. The good news, I believe our recovery is right around the corner. All signs point in that direction, including pent up demand for housing, historically low interest rates, the stock market at its highest point since 2007 and very low housing inventory. Fasten your seat belts, if factors stay the course we are in for a very busy spring!! Real Estate is an ever changing market and I hope to bring you valuable information that affects your most valuable investment, your home. I will also include questions and answers and would like your input with respect to topics of discussion. Please send your questions or suggestions to aladd@prudentialct.com. Be sure to look for next month’s article.

Distracted Driving a Big Danger Today’s drivers face more distractions than ever before. Technological gadgets from smart phones to MP3 players give drivers new reasons to look away from the road. Distracted driving is any activity a person engages in that can distract him or her from the primary task of driving. There are three main types of distraction: 1. Visual:Taking eyes off the road. 2. Cognitive: Not thinking about what you’re doing.

110812

3. Manual: Taking hands off the wheel.

local pick-up & drop-off our regular prices are more competitive than chain stores & Dealerships

auto 1

Distracted driving may include talking on a cell phone, eating food in the car, thumbing through the maps on a GPS device, or even changing the radio station. But the type of distracted driving that has become an epidemic, particularly among younger drivers, is texting while driving. When driving, the safest bet is to refrain from any activity that takes one’s eyes, hands or mind away from the road. If answering a cell phone or working with another device is necessary, drivers should pull over to the side of the road and take care of what they need to do.

What to look for in a graduate program - Today’s college graduates are facing a difficult job market, one that is flooded with unemployed professionals but few job openings. As a result, many college juniors, seniors and even recent graduates are considering the possibility of the pursuit of an advanced degree. When researching different graduate programs, prospective applicants should take the following under consideration. > Admission standards. Applicants should be looking for schools with tough admissions standards. Schools with low admissions standards won’t necessarily provide a degree that’s valued by prospective employers. Since many students will be pursuing an advanced degree in the hopes it will help them stand out in a crowded pool of applicants, that advanced degree should be one that has substantial value and not one that was easy to pursue and obtain. > Assistance. A good graduate program will boast a career development program that helps place graduates in desirable careers. Ask about past graduates of the program, and where they are currently working and what they’re earning. > Faculty. When researching graduate programs, look for one whose faculty are well known in your desired field. Most school Web sites list faculty biographies. A strong faculty is one that has a history of scholarly publications, acclaim among colleagues and professional experience not just in academia, but in the desired field as well. A proven and respected faculty can be a great way for students to make connections in the field.

Newington and North Branford Hockey Teams Tie by Mark DiPaola The Newington (9-2-2) and North Branford (7-2-0) high school hockey teams battled it out into a 1-1 stalemate on Saturday night at Newington Arena in a physical game that saw the Indians draw even on senior forward Brendan Richards’ third period net mouth goal. After trailing for the first two periods, the Indians kicked the final stanza off right, when junior forward Matt Harackiewicz skated around the back of the net and attempted a wrap-around. The puck ricocheted off the pad of Thunderbird goaltender Kyle Saroka and out to Richards, who spun to his backhand and slid the puck into the low right corner to tie the game. “We came out a little lax [in the third period] and they took it to us in the first five, six minutes,” said Thunderbirds Head Coach Ralph Shaw after the game. The Thunderbirds jumped out in front early when junior defenseman Jared Neubig took a slap shot from the point that hit the stick of freshman forward Mark Russo in traffic and found the back of the net to give North Branford the 1-0 lead at 8:55 of the first period. The contest was heated, with both teams finishing their hits and taking their share of penalties. The game, as a whole, was characterized by missed opportunities and timely saves at both ends. “We were trying to focus on getting the puck deep and forechecking,” Shaw said. What may have been North Branford’s best chance came with 1:45 remaining in the third. Dylan Podbielski flew into the slot unchecked and took a pass from the right boards, firing a one-time that missed the back of the net by inches--he rang the left post. “Their goalie [Drew O’Leary] played well, and we didn’t generate as much opportunities as we wanted to,” Shaw said.

Newington Senior Brendan Richards’ third period goal caught the Indians up for a tie, but no victory, against North Branford.
