As we age, so do our feet. With aging, the ligaments and tendons about the feet can lose their supportive function resulting in many foot problems. Fallen arches, bunions, hammertoes, painful toenails and heel pain are some of the more common complaints which may result from weakening of the normal foot structures. Additionally, the fat pad on the bottom of the foot and heel can wear thin, resulting in foot pain and pressure sores. Some of these problems can be treated conservatively while others may require a more involved treatment plan. If you suffer from one of these foot problems, contact the Connecticut Foot Care Center nearest you for an appointment. One of our foot specialists can diagnose your problem and suggest a treatment plan which best suits your condition and lifestyle.

Proposed Budget Introduces Elementary Spanish by Mark DiPaola A proposed school budget that aims to reduce class size, hire more teachers, and implement a new elementary school world language program was unanimously adopted and transmitted to Town Manager John Salomone by the Board of Education last Wednesday night, Feb. 6. While Superintendent of Schools William Collins’ original budget proposal called for $68 million, it has been cut to $67.144 million since the board last met two weeks ago to discuss the topic. Although his plan originally requested funds to hire seven instructional coaches, the board will be asking for four. Collins said that he felt that four would be a more attainable number for now. “If I feel very strongly next year, I’m going to come back and ask for three more,” Collins told the board during the discussion. Collins will also be transitioning an administrator into a special education position, a move that allows him to use a $98,000 Federal grant, thus removing that cost from the budget. Board members discussed the possibility of scheduling additional meetings in order to allow further discussion of

the tentative budget. The board has until March 22 to submit it to the town manager, who will then move it along to the Town Council. “Nobody likes extra meetings, but I’d prefer to have extra time to look at it,” said Board Member David Tatem. “I don’t want to feel like we’re rushing.” Board Member Daniel Carson Sr., however, cautioned them into speculating too much at this stage, saying that the budget may look radically different once it has been through the town manager and Town Council. “The number that you see before you is probably a best case scenario,” Carson said. Board Member Cynthia Callahan echoed this sentiment. “I think the discourse will occur when we have recommendations from the Council,” Callahan said. One of the highlights of the proposed budget is the hiring of two Spanish instructors for kindergarten through second grade. The program, which features two 15-minute lessons per week--the instructors will have to be shared between schools--will eventually extend to third and fourth grade. “This would be getting our foot in the door,” said Board

of Education Chairman Marc Finkelstein. “It’s been on the agenda for 14 years. It’s always been there and it’s always been eliminated.” The district would need a minimum of four instructors to make world language a core subject, but the board is trying not to plan too far ahead without knowing how well it will work, Finkelstein said. “This isn’t something we’ve done before,” he said. “We want to try it out, see how it goes. This is an evolving process. This is just starting out but I believe it’s a worthy program to start.” Minnie Alexander, a parent who attended the meeting, agreed, citing the importance multilingual skills are expected to play in future years. “I love the fact that we’re going with the world language,” Alexander said to the board during the public comment segment of the meeting. “I applaud all of you for bringing these ideas forward.” Tatem expressed cautious support for the initiative. “In principle I’m for the idea, but I’d like to see some research on whether or not 15 minutes a day is really worth it,” he said.

Judge Denies Re-submitted HealthBridge Appeal by Mark DiPaola The Second Circuit Appeals Court ordered last week that striking nursing home workers be allowed to return to work, the latest legal defeat HealthBridge Management has taken in fighting an injunction mandating that the 600 or so employees that walked out in July be reinstated, but the company refused to go quietly. HealthBridge upped the ante again, this time appealing to the Supreme Court for an emergency stay of the order. The request went to Justice Ruth Ginsburg and was subsequently denied, but they did not stop there--the company proceeded to re-submit the appeal to Justice Antonin Scalia. “I don’t know how much longer they can go shopping for someone to give them the answer they want,” said Deborah Chernoff, Communications Director of the New England Health Care Employees Union Tuesday. “They’ve made it very clear that

they will do anything to not comply.” On last Wednesday morning, Feb. 6, Scalia drove the last nail into HealthBridge’s coffin--their appeal was denied. “While we are disappointed in the decision, HealthBridge-managed health care centers intend to comply with the District Court’s order,” said HealthBridge Senior Vice President of Labor Relations Lisa Crutchfield in a statement released by the company. “As always, our primary concern is with the care and well-being of our patients. Throughout this process our guiding principle has been to provide the highest standard of care and safety to our patients.” Further refusal to comply could have landed the company in civil contempt of court, the National Labor Relations Board had warned them. “HealthBridge has come to the end of their legal road,” said David Pickus, President of the New England Health Care Employees Union, District 1199 in a statement.

“They have wasted untold millions of Medicare and Medicaid dollars meant for the care of the elderly on spurious appeals, but their arguments have been soundly rejected at every step. Now one of the most conservative justices of the highest court in the land has turned down their last desperate bid to evade responsibility for their unlawful actions and attempts to set themselves above the law. Justice has been delayed long enough--it’s past time our members were back at work caring for the people they love and miss.” HealthBridge had been resisting the injunction, claiming that patients would be endangered by the return of the striking workers, who they say tampered with resident name tags before walking out. Testimony from Lorraine Mulligan, a nurse that was called in to assess the impact of the strike at the company’s Newington, Danbury, Westport, West River, and Stamford facilities, alleged that the nameplates of 14 dementia patients were switched.

Snow Narrows Newington Roads

“The court order makes it all the more urgent for the office of the Connecticut Chief State’s Attorney to complete its investigation of the union workers who committed acts of sabotage against patients when the workers went they went out on strike in July 2012,” Crutchfield said in the statement. The Second Circuit court rejected this argument, pointing to the fact that some employees, throughout the course of the strike, returned to work, a move that HealthBridge did not object to. The dispute between union members and their HealthBridge employer began over higher insurance deductibles, a switch from an employee pension system to a 401K, and reduced hours and sick days, amongst other measures, imposed under a new contract that was put into effect after the company closed negotiations, prompting the strike.

Student Artwork Exhibited at Newington Library

The students of art teacher Heather Sawtelle are displaying their work in the Community Room of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library throughout the month of February. Sawtelle’s students range in age from elementary through high school. The exhibit, entitled “Seeing is. . .” emphasizes the students’ vision as well as their technique. In her lessons, students are encouraged to “look deeply and profoundly at our subject matter. To take a fresh and fearless look at what is really in front of us. It is not just talent, but patience, diligence, hard work and a keen awareness of ourselves and how we produce our art, that enables each artist to acquire the true skill of ‘seeing.’” The exhibit may be viewed during regular library hours when the Community Room is not being used for a scheduled program.

Newington Democrats Seeking Candidates

Newington has reopened town offices, the library, and the senior and disabled center following the weekend snow storm that covered most of the state. Parks and Recreation Programs, with the exception of those located at the high school, also resumed as of Tuesday. The snow has forced many roads in town to be narrowed to one lane.

The Newington Democratic Town Committee is seeking individuals who are interested in running for public office this November, particularly, Town Council and Board of Education. If you would like to submit your name for consideration, please send in a letter of interest to: Nominating Chair, Newington Democratic Town Committee, P. O.

Wethersfield Jumps into Action to Clear Out the Snow by Mark DiPaola Friday’s blizzard buried much of the state for the weekend, with towns seeing more than two feet--Hamden had the most, with 40 inches--but Wethersfield has weathered the storm smoothly for the most part, Town Manager Jeff Bridges said on Tuesday. “I think everybody did great,” Bridges said during a phone interview. “The people did exactly what they were supposed to do-they stayed off the streets.” They may not have had a choice, considering the fact that many residents throughout the state have been literally snowed in, with doors blocked and cars completely covered. In Wethersfield, mutual aid helped alleviate this problem, town residents said. “Everybody helps each other, and the best thing is we can walk to places,” said Wethersfield resident Beth Foran. “Most people have their driveways shoveled and helped other people shovel their driveways.” Although he does not have an exact tally, Bridges estimates that Wethersfield got between 24 to 30 inches of snow. All of the roads in town, however, were open by Sunday night.

Residents that came to the podium during the public comment segment, for the first time in what may seem like awhile, were pleased. “I think you listened to the public,” said Wethersfield resident Keith Dunlap. “And I think it’s the best decision.” Of course, you can’t please everybody. “I don’t know why you’re not out there to buy the entire [Goff Road] property,” said Wethersfield resident Robert Young, referring to the fact that purchasing development rights would not mean actually acquiring the land. Deputy Mayor John Console, who voted against the motion, had similar concerns. “I support part of the motion, but I can’t support all of it,” Console said. Console supported selling the House and Barns to Nowak, but opposed going into the Land Acquisition Fund for Goff Road. “Once this is over, you’ll have zero dollars in there, and you’re essentially buying the development rights for something the town won’t get anything back for,” he said.

What’s Happening

Rocky Hill & Cromwell? With Westlake

Decision Delayed on Nursing Home Restraining Order by Katelyn Kelleher After hearing arguments in court last Tuesday, Feb. 5, Judge Antonio C. Robaina delayed the decision on the Town of Rocky Hill’s request for a temporary restraining order to prevent inmates and mental patients from moving into the specialized nursing facility located at 60 West St. The town has filed suit seeking a permanent injunction against the property owner and facility operator, SecureCare Realty LLC and iCare Management LLC. Town Attorney Morris B. Borea had also asked for the restraining order to freeze the opening of the 95-bed facility. By opening the facility, a joint venture between the state departments of Corrections, Social Services and Mental Health and Addiction Services, the state would see $5.5 million in Medicaid reimbursements annually. “A poignant question that the judge asked was does the judge have the right to set a temporary restraining order?” Mayor Anthony LaRosa said at a town meeting last Wednesday, Feb. 6. “Then the judge looked at the defense

lawyer and asked ‘Is this a nursing home or a prison?’ Our attorney thought that was a very telling question.” LaRosa said Borea “felt very comfortable [after the hearing], but you never know what the judge is going to do. “The judge is trying to come up with a decision that won’t be overturned,” he said. Judge Robaina, addressing rumors that iCare and SecureCare are trying to move patients in sooner rather than later, said he would rule rather quickly on the restraining order, LaRosa said. Several residents who live close to the facility said at Wednesday’s town meeting that there has been little action at the property, though one resident said his wife had observed four or five cars coming every day and staying for a few hours. LaRosa told neighbors of the facility to keep an eye out for activity. “If they put prisoners in there before the ruling, that would fly in our favor,” he said. Residents have organized a petition opposing the facil-

ity as well as a rally at the north entry to the state capitol scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bust transportation will be provided and more information is available at www.protectct.com.

Man Charged After Smashing Car Windows in Cromwell by Katelyn Kelleher A man was arrested after allegedly smashing the windows of several vehicles in Cromwell last Monday, Feb. 4. Javier Barragon, Jr., 18, an autistic resident at Adelbrook Behavioral and Developmental Services, 60 Hicksville Rd., was charged with three counts of criminal mischief after three vehicles were found to have damage. Barragon is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 12.

Blizzard Dumps Feet of Snow on the Area by Katelyn Kelleher Concerns about the weight of the snow on the Town Hall roof have prompted town officials to close the Cromwell Senior Center and the Cromwell Belden Library until further notice, as of Tuesday. Town employees had been working steadily over the weekend to clear the roads, however each had gotten stuck “at least once in the four-foot snow and resulting drifts,” First Selectwoman Mertie Terry said in a statement, adding “roads are passable but in some instances only one lane is open.” Terry said all 19 of Cromwell’s highway, garage and parks employees have been working to stay ahead of the needs of the fire and police departments, and the police and fire personnel have been busy assisting with calls. Terry also urged residents with gas heat to be sure that their outside vent is clear of snow, adding the fire department has responded to calls about gas odors resulting from blocked vents.

In Rocky Hill, cleanup is going as smoothly as possible, given the impact of the storm. Director of Highways and Engineering James Sollmi said the roads were all cleared as wide as the plows could make them by Sunday and all town buildings are open and functional and all schools are plowed out. “The guys plugged ahead, they did what they had to do and, to their credit, the rewards were reaped on Saturday and Sunday,” he said. Crews are still busy hauling snow out of areas, but at least now they can take a breath. Sollmi said he’s received a few calls about plow drivers going fast, which he said is usually the result of a build-up of adrenaline and the fact that it’s easier to plow now that the sun is out. “These guys have been working and it’s been an intense situation--it’s adrenaline,” he said. “I tell them, ‘Just chill out, we know you’re all pumped up here.’ It’s just a release of energy.”

The State of Connecticut wants to convert a Rocky Hill nursing home into a facility for prisoners and mental patients. The nursing home sits in the middle of a residential community — homes, apartments, condos. The State tried to sneak this prison/mental ward into Rocky Hill without going before the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission. The town is now fighting this proposal in court and in the Legislature. Please join us in a STATE CAPITOL RALLY to let Governor Malloy know that we object to placing prisoners and mental patients in the middle of this Rocky Hill residential neighborhood. The RALLY will be held at the north entrance to the State Capitol Wednesday, February 20, from 11 AM to 1 PM. Free buses will leave Elm Ridge Park at 10:30 AM. SPREAD THE WORD TO NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS the more at the rally, the better.

She suffers from post traumatic stress and can be quite frisky at times. She is in need of a home that will give her space. She is good with other cats, especially males since she is a bit of a tom boy. Chrissy would benefit from anti-anxiety treatments. No children.

Things to do before buying a used car Used cars can be quite a bargain. Whether purchased from a dealer, private citizen or even a family member, a used or preowned vehicle can prove just as reliable as a new vehicle but at a fraction of the cost. While plenty of people have had good experiences purchasing a used vehicle, consumers know that a used car is never a sure bet. However, shoppers can employ the following tips to learn as much about a used vehicle as possible before any money exchanges hands. * Ask for a vehicle history report. A vehicle history report can show potential buyers how many owners a vehicle has had as well as the vehicle’s accident history. A vehicle with several previous owners and an extensive accident history is one many consumers would prefer to avoid. Consider it a red flag if a seller, be it a dealership or private seller, does not want to share the vehicle history report. For a nominal fee, the Department of Justice’s National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (www.nmvtis.org) provides information about a vehicle’s title, its odometer data and certain aspects of its accident history. * Test drive the car under as many conditions as possible. When test driving a used car, try to drive it in as many conditions as possible. Test the vehicle on hills, in stop-and-go traffic and test how the vehicle responds to accelerated speeds on the freeway.

* Have the vehicle inspected by your own mechanic. Once the vehicle changes ownership, it will need to pass inspection before you can legally drive it. However, many used cars are purchased as-is, meaning you won’t be protected if the vehicle fails inspection after you have paid for the car. As a result, it’s important to have the vehicle inspected by your own mechanic before any money changes hands. The mechanic can point out any issues with the vehicle and give his recommendation as to whether it’s worth buying.

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

* Research the model of vehicle. Before buying a used vehicle, it also helps to research the specific model. Some models have better reputations for longevity than others. Such research won’t necessarily be easy, but auto-related consumer magazines typically produce stories examining the frequency of repair and maintenance costs with specific models. Buying a used car requires a leap of faith, but a few tricks of the trade can make consumers much more confident that they will find the right vehicle.

Blair, Morander, Help Indians Surge Past Hall by Mark DiPaola A stellar scoring effort from Newington forward Timmy Blair, coupled with a dominant paint presence by forward Bryan Morander, led the Indians (11-6) past Hall High School (2-13) by a 67-53 score line in high school hoops last Tuesday night, Feb. 5. Morander had 22 points and three second half blocks, while Blair exploded for 27 points. The duo’s offensive performance proved the deciding factor in a contest in which the Hall underdogs, at various points of the game, made it close, thanks to the scoring efforts of Corey Roth and JaBari Fisher, who had 19 points and 12 points, respectively. “We weren’t doing a very good job defensively,” said Indians head coach Scott Wenzel after the game. “We were allowing them to penetrate our man to man, and they had some guys that were knocking down shots.” Blair was a threat with both his perimeter shooting and penetration, while Morander was unrivaled under the basket, swallowing rebounds and delivering consistent buckets off the post-up. “He did a good job for us down low getting rebounds,” Wenzel said. A 5-0 run in the first quarter, led by Morander, gave the Indians an early 13-2 margin and sent the Warriors into the timeout huddle, twice, to regroup. It seemed to work. By the closing minutes of the second quarter, Hall had cut Newington’s lead to 28-25 following Roth’s interception of Morander’s pass, which he took the other way for the layup bucket. The teams would leave the first half with Newington up 33-25. Foul and turnover troubles, coupled with timely buckets from Blair, who dished out seven assists as well, stifled the would-be comeback and left the Indians in a comfortable position, leading by more than 10 points, in the closing minutes of the game. “He made some great decisions,” Wenzel said. “He knocked down some great shots, found the open man.”

Hall’s Samuel Linabury goes for a shot in the first period.

Class L, S Indoor Track Tournaments Postponed Last weekeknd’s snowstorm has postponed the Class L and S indoor track tournaments, as well as the State Open meet, to be postponed. The Class S tournament, in which Cromwell is competing, will be held Thursday, Feb. 14, beginning at 4 p.m., at the Floyd Little Athletic Center at Hillhouse High School in New Haven. Wethersfield and Newington will compete in the Class L tournament postponed to Friday, Feb. 15, also beginning at 4 p.m. at the Floyd Little Athletic Center. The State Open has been postponed to Tuesday, Feb. 19, beginning at 4 p.m. at the Floyd Little Athletic Center. Newington’s Bryan Morander looks around for an open teammate.

Tan Scores Terriers Five Points at Class M Meet by Katelyn Kelleher A fourth and sixth place finish by Rocky Hill’s Alex Tan garnered the Terriers’ only five points at the Class M Indoor Track and Field Championship at the Floyd Little Athletic Center at Hillhouse High School Thursday, Feb. 7. Tan took fourth in the 1,000 meters in 2:37.48, good a nearly three second personal record and four points for the team. The junior added another point with a 4:41.75 performance in the 1,600 meters. The meet started on a more solemn note, however, with the 4X200 team of sophomore Alex Brown and seniors Shane Steinman, Shaharyar Zuberi and Alex DeNardo dropping the baton during the handoff from the first leg to the second, thereby being eliminated from the race. The sprint medley relay of Brown, DeNardo, Steinman and Tan scratched from their race. Sophomore Briana Wilson was the only female Terrier to compete, with a 24th place finish in the 300-meter dash in 45.74.

The first leg of the Rocky Hill 4X200 got off to a quick start, but the relay never finished.
