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.

Did you know? There are two types of cholesterol, one that can make the arteries less flexible and therefore make a person more susceptible to heart attack or stroke; and the other that actually protects against heart attack. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, which means it has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers known as lipoproteins. Low-density lipoproteins, or LDL, are considered “bad” cholesterol. When too much bad cholesterol is circulating in the blood, LDL can slowly build up on the inner walls of the arteries, possibly even teaming with other substances to form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that narrows the arteries and makes them less flexible. High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is what’s considered “good” cholesterol. That’s because medical experts feel HDL carries cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where cholesterol is then passed from the body. In addition, some experts also feel HDL removes excess cholesterol from arterialplaque, slowing its buildup as a result. And though cholesterol is commonly, and falsely, considered a dirty word, low levels of HDL actually increase a person’s risk of heart disease. A simple blood test can help men and women learn their HDL and LDL levels, and if they need to make any changes to get on the right track.

Conservation Commission Rejects Toll Brothers Application by Mark DiPaola Inside Newington Town Hall’s Council Chambers, resident Gayle Redrako sat in her seat amongst those gathered to hear the Conservation Commission’s decision regarding a Toll Brothers development application for Cedar Mountain, her eyes closed and hands clasped in what appeared to be a silent prayer, as each commissioner gave a statement explaining why they chose to vote for or against approving the company’s bid. Around her, other residents, who have been fighting alongside her against the proposed housing construction project--a perceived threat to nearby wetlands and the wildlife inhabiting it--since the first public hearings in October, seemed to be holding their breath as the votes came in. A few whispered words of optimism to one another after the first three commissioners, Jeff Zelek, Alan Paskewich, and Catherine Marie Clark, spoke out against the plan before adding three dissenting votes to their side of the scoreboard. Minutes before, the room had been buzzing with confused outrage following an accidental--that’s right, accidental--vote in favor of the application. The Conservation Commission, which had just finished plowing through a litany of conditions attached to the would-be development project, was asked by Chairman Philip Block to take a vote. Thinking that they were confirming the stipulations of the proposal--if it were to pass in a vote following--each of the six members gave their go-ahead. “I did not intend to vote in favor of that application with

the vote we just took,” Zellick said, following a 10-minute recess the Commission members took to regroup, while anxious public attendees speculated as to what might happen next. “I was waiting for the opportunity to state our reasons. I was voting just to say I agree that these conditions are right for the application.” After Clark and Paskerwich seconded his sentiment, the Commission opted for a do-over. Whatever relief members of the public might have felt following that decision was almost instantly replaced by the excruciating tension that stretched over the course of the re-vote. For the residents, it was the moment of truth in what has been a long struggle that has manifested itself in seemingly endless public hearings, during which they have grilled Toll Brothers personnel with diligence that matched that of those sitting on the Commission, while presenting environmental research of their own to add to the discussion. Now, all they could do was sit back and watch, as the hanging judges delivered the verdict--the real one this time. Block, the last to vote, hesitated, a grin crawling across his face. He had admitted before that he was conflicted between recognizing adjustments the applicant has made in an effort to address the concerns regarding the potential excess storm water runoff from construction sites into nearby wetlands, as well as blasting-induced aquifer leaks, and his own apprehensions regarding the “unique characteristics” of the wetlands, which are housing the endangered Swamp Cottonwood plant species. In retrospect, it did not really matter, as four of the

commissioners had already voted against it, but Block was determined to cast his with conviction. Finally, he uttered the words that Redrako and her fellow activists appeared to have been praying for. “I am going to vote against this application,” Block said to cheering and thunderous applause, and the battle was over--for now. The Commission anticipates having to explain the eventful proceedings that led to a second vote and then the rejection of the bid. “I would be willing to go before any appellate judge and explain to them exactly what happened and what we intended to do,” Zellick said. For the Commission members voting against the proposal, it was a combination of a high volume of testimony, some of which drew conflicting conclusions from George Logan of REMA, an independent environmental study group, and those from Toll Brothers’ Dru Associates, and a tight statutory time constraint mandating that they approve or deny the application by that day, Feb. 28. During the weeks leading up the deadline, the Commission continued to receive new information from both REMA and Dru, as revisions were made. “I think the procedural error that occurred tonight speaks to the short-term period in which we had to go through all these conditions,” Clark said. “I feel like I would be letting down the commission, the concerned constituents, and the applicants.”

Health Bridge Granted Expedited Appeal by Mark DiPaola Health Bridge Management has had its share of legal defeats recently--the New England Health Care Employees Union’s successful bid for an injunction that ordered that striking employees be offered their jobs back under their current labor contract, followed by a series of Second Circuit Appellate and U.S. Supreme Court appeal denials--but the company got a break last week. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals granted Health Bridge an expedited appeal, which means that the merits of the injunction will be examined by the end of April. “It doesn’t have any immediate effect in terms of return to work, but the case will be heard sooner than it usually would,” said New England Health Care Employees Union Communications Director Deborah Chernoff. The motion that was denied, an emergency stay, was filed strictly for the purpose of delaying the restraining order, not arguing whether or not the Second Circuit was correct in issuing it. Health Bridge put in for the expedited appeal around the same time, Chernoff said.

“We are extremely pleased that the Second Circuit has granted our motion for expedited appeal in this important case,” said Health Bridge’s Lisa Crutchfield in a statement issued by the company last week. “As we have said from the outset, we believe the District Court’s decision to grant injunctive relief unnecessarily short circuits the established venue – the ongoing NLRB trial – in which this issue should be resolved.” Although the National Labor Relations Board is in the process of taking Health Bridge to court on labor violation charges pertaining to the company’s termination and imposition of the new labor contract that prompted the strike, as well as a December lockout of employees at its Milford facility, Chernoff has emphasized the importance of returning striking union members to work so that they are not waiting for what can be a lengthy legal proceeding to conclude. The employees, who have been striking over proposed labor contract changes since July, were slated to return to work on March 3. The granting of the expedited appeal comes at the heels of Health Bridge’s filing for bankruptcy, a move that, the

union alleges, was made in an effort to use the bankruptcy court’s power to modify contracts to protect businesses to avoid having to abide by the conditions of the restraining order. The Hartford Courant reported minimums of $2.3 million in losses at each of five Connecticut nursing homes from which employees went on strike in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 29. Strike preparation, including $12.5 million spent to hire replacement workers, coupled with declining revenues at the highlighted homes contributed to the company’s financial woes, according to The Hartford Courant. While the company has cited increased healthcare costs as its reason behind a new labor contract that 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, Chernoff estimates that Health Bridge spent at least $3 million in legal fees in its attempt to fight the injunction. “All of that money could have gone back into the contract,” she said.

Council Discusses Raising BOE Capital Improvement Fund Cap by Mark DiPaola The Newington Town Council wants to raise the cap on the amount of money that can be accumulated in the Board of Education’s Public School Capital Improvement Program fund. Councilors discussed a proposal to raise the limit from an existing $425,000 ceiling to $1.2 million, but did not take action on it-during Tuesday night’s meeting. “Four hundred and fifty thousand dollars, 35 years ago, was a lot of money,” said Newington Mayor Stephen Woods. “Obviously today it’s not.” The Board of Education is hitting the cap pretty quickly too--it raises between $250,000 and $300,000 per year, when a $125,000 annual stipend allotted by the Town Council is included. The CIP fund was created when it was discovered that minor repair work on school buildings were being neglected. “When [the Board of Education] budget was cut, the first thing that was cut was maintenance,” said Councilor Myra Cohen.

The ordinance sets a cap on the amount of funds that can build in the account in order to limit its use to smaller projects. “The idea was don’t save this money in this account for large projects,” Cohen said. Raising the cap will require an approval process that includes a public hearing, so Tuesday night’s discussion was preliminary. “This doesn’t cost anybody anything,” Woods said. “It just allows them to hold onto the money before they have to use it.” While Woods expressed support for the proposed $1.2 million limit, he cautioned against raising it too high. “It creates the perception of a pool of money that’s just sitting there,” he said. Councilor Jay Bottalico suggested adding a time constraint on when the money would have to be spent, but Woods countered that the cap, combined with the rate at which it is reach, will prompt the Board of Education to use the funds within a two- to three-year period anyway.

Community Improvement Plan Presented to Council by Mark DiPaola A comprehensive community improvement plan will focus on both physical and business development as well as cultural and environmental efforts, amongst other objectives, in Wethersfield, according to a presentation given before the Town Council at the Feb. 19 meeting. “It’s a document that looks at planning for the community long term,” said Glenn Chalder of Planimetrix. “There’s a lot Wethersfield is doing well, but it’s also changing.” Chalder cited changing age demographics, as well as a population surge uncharacteristic of stagnation the town has seen in this area in recent years. As of 2012, 28 new businesses have opened in Wethersfield, according to a report

given by Peter Gillipsie. He did not have numbers for businesses that have left town, however. Cultural efforts in town will be aimed at maintaining Wethersfield’s unique, local character, Chalder said. Areas the plan intends to address are based on desires expressed by Wethersfield residents, he said. “Wethersfield means something to them emotionally,” Chalder said. While that will mean keeping what’s already working, the plan also looks to enhance the town through additions such as extended sidewalks, trails, improved transit and an expansion of community events. Environmental efforts include the conservation of Wethersfield Cove, the preservation of open space and the

support of local farming-the latter two priorities being exemplified by widespread public support for a recent Council compromise to sell a Wilkus Farm parcel to farmer Richard Nowak and attempt to negotiate the purchase of development rights for land behind Goff Road from developer Ronald Drisdelle. Another goal of the plan is to meet “diverse housing needs,”an effort that might require an examination of current zoning laws that might restrict how a residence can be constructed, Chadler said. “It’s going to be a partnership between the town and the private owners,” he said. “It’s not going to happen overnight.”

Flu Epidemic Goes Under Review at Council Meeting by Mark DiPaola The winter’s flu epidemic, amongst other issues, was under review last night in a presentation delivered by the Central Connecticut Health District at Wethersfield’s Town Council meeting. The state saw a high volume of flu cases despite the administering of vaccinations, representatives from the CCHD, which serves 97,000 residents across Wethersfield, Newington, Rocky Hill, and Berlin, told the Council and members of the public. “It was one of the worst years, recently, for us, and for the state,” said CCHD Director Paul Hutcheon. “It seemed to hit the elderly harder than in other years.”

Hutcheon admitted that the vaccinations did not have the intended flu-offsetting effect. “I’m sure you heard plenty of people say, ‘I got the vaccine, and I also got the flu’,” he said. Another problem was the ease at which the virus could be spread, according to Hutcheon. “Unfortunately you’re able to infect others before the symptoms show up,” Hutcheon said. The CCHD highlighted other health issues, including dental cleanings/screenings, teen driver safety, tobacco control, and nutrition, that fall within the agencies wide scope. The CCHD is largely volunteer-driven, with personnel providing in-home services, such as the flu vaccinations, to community members, Hutcheon said.

New Recycling Items Accepted Effective immediately, CRRA’s state-of-the-art single-stream recycling facility will accept a number of additional items including large toys, beverage crates, laundry baskets, recycling bins, telephone directories, storage containers and hardcover books. Any of these items that fit inside the single-stream barrel can be recycled, provided that all metals such as bucket handles and wheel axles are separated from the plastic items, all items are rinsed and covers from hardcover books are removed and placed in the trash.

Forty percent, or $385,209, of CCHD funding comes from its member towns as of the 2011-12 fiscal year, according to the presentation. Thirty-five percent, $344,517, is awarded in grants. The agency, which aims to promote healthy communities through programs established in collaboration with the towns it serves, is making plans to add digitalized components such as data and a rating system for local restaurants based on sanitation assessments, Hutcheon said. The CCHD also wants to use the web to spell out health-related trends. “We pulled in, in many cases, a 10-year comparison so we can see what the trends are,” Hutcheon said. The CCHD inspects over 800 licensed facilities, including pools, hotels, and dining establishments.

Rocky Hill & Cromwell? With Westlake

Cromwell Teacher Named 2013 Outstanding Educator by Katelyn Kelleher Awards are not hard to come by at Woodside Intermediate School and one teacher, with recent recognition from Project Learning Tree (PLT), is bringing home awards on a national level. Third grade teacher Lynn Kochiss was named the 201213 Project Learning Tree Connecticut Outstanding Educator of the Year in October. Now she is one of five teachers that have been named 2013 National Project Learning Tree Outstanding Educators, becoming the first Connecticut teacher to receive the national award since its inception in 1994. PLT, a program of the American Forest Foundation, aims to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to improve it. In Connecticut, PLT is sponsored by the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP). Kochiss has created the Earth Club at Woodside Intermediate School, in which she leads students in grades 3-5 in environmental research to address concerns in the school. Its members have successfully set up a school-wide recycling program that includes electronics and established winter bird feeders. The club is the only after-school program at Woodside with a wait list. Kochiss also incorporates environmental themes in her lesson plans, using environmentally-related articles NOTICE OF DECISION whenever possible and CROMWELL WATER POLLUTION CONTROL taking every opportunity AUTHORITY to bring students outside, sometimes utilizing acAt its Public Hearing and tivities outlined by PLT.

ed training for the Student Learning Center with PLT and has joined the Connecticut Forest and Park Association’s WalkCT Family Ramble Program, where she guides families on nature walks and other outdoor events, often using PLT activities. In “The Forest of S.T. Shrew,” participants examine a fallen tree while Kochiss leads a discussion and answers questions about rot, insects and fungus. In “Stories by the Fire,” she tells tales about wildlife in the New England winter. Just like Woodside Intermediate School, which is home to State Teacher of the Year Blaise Messinger, Kochiss is no stranger to recognition for her efforts. She was named the 2011-12 Teacher of the Year at Woodside Intermediate School and was the Connecticut Outdoor & Environmental Education Association’s Environmental Educator of the Year in 2011.

LANGUAGE is the cornerstone of reading. Talk to your baby– during bathtime, at play, when changing him or her, at feeding times. Sing to your baby and recite nursery rhymes. Before the age of one, babies like to handle books more than being read to. Let them choose cardboard or cloth books. Take your baby to the park, the zoo, the library, the store. Babies learn from everything they see. FIRE is a powerful and destructive force that most of us don’t understand, but think we can survive. Most home fire fatalities are caused by carelessness with cigarettes. If you have smokers in your home, make sure that there are large ashtrays for their use. Home heating is also a major cause of home fires. It is important that you have your heating system inspected annually. To keep the kitchen safe, make sure areas around the stove are kept free of grease buildup. If you have a fire on the stove, put a lid on it. For a home inspection checklist on home fire safety, contact the Rocky Hill Fire Department.

LANGUAGE is the cornerstone of reading. Talk to your baby– during bathtime, at play, when changing him or her, at feeding times. Sing to your baby and recite nursery rhymes. Before the age of one, babies like to handle books more than being read to. Let them choose cardboard or cloth books. Take your baby to the park, the zoo, the library, the store. Babies learn from everything they see. FIRE is a powerful and destructive force that most of us don’t understand, but think we can survive. Most home fire fatalities are caused by carelessness with cigarettes. If you have smokers in your home, make sure that there are large ashtrays for their use. Home heating is also a major cause of home fires. It is important that you have your heating system inspected annually. To keep the kitchen safe, make sure areas around the stove are kept free of grease buildup. If you have a fire on the stove, put a lid on it. For a home inspection checklist on home fire safety, contact the Rocky Hill Fire Department.

Oil, gas & gas conversions Other companies may charge less for oil, but they make up for it with high costs for service!

TAKE PRECAUTIONS (More than one third of all home fire deaths and almost one-fifth of injuries start with cigarettes.) Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Be sure ashes are cool before disposal. Most cigarette fires start when a hot cigarette drops onto upholstery, bedding carpeting or clothing. So never smoke in bed or anywhere that may tempt you to sleep. Install extra smoke detectors in smokers’ bedrooms and other areas they spend time in. And remember, if you smoke while intoxicated, you may never wake up! ELECTRICITY can be dangerous if not used properly. The Rocky Hill Fire Department encourages you to: Look for the mark of a recognized testing laboratory when purchasing electrical appliances or tools. Unplug portable appliances when not in use. Replace worn or frayed cords. Minimize the use of extension cords. If you’re experiencing problems with blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers, have a qualified electrician check your home.

A recent study states that houses with tidy gardens, freshly mowed lawns, well-stocked flower beds and one or more trees will sell quicker and for a better price than a comparable one without the green features. If you’re selling your home, you’ll find that everything will be coming up roses (or pansies, or begonias…) if you simply plant some flowers to brighten your yard.

A smart way to showcase your flowers and landscape beds is with a great border. Easy Gardener makes a wide variety of edging. One of their borders that will let any landscape bed shine is Emerald Edge. To install, just hammer it into the ground with a mallet. Emerald Edge comes in easy to handle four foot sections and costs less than $1.50 per foot in most stores. Another attractive edging option is Fiber Edge. It is one of the most durable on the market, yet it bends easily and conforms to almost any landscape design. Made of a strong UV- resistant fiberglass, this innovative edging comes in an attractive green color that won’t rust, rot, crack or fade.

If you’re opting for something ornamental, try Garden Braid Border. The pound-in border’s braided detail beautifully frames any landscape bed. Don’t let its good looks fool you; this stylish border works hard, keeping creeping weeds out of flowerbeds while holding mulch in. Best of all, it is sturdy and maintenance-free. If you love the look of clay or stone tile but don’t want to spend a fortune, check out the Villa Garden Tiles. The tiles are easy to use; you just push them into place and compact soil around the bottom for support. The Villa Tiles come in two designs — Terra Cotta and Stone Tile. Tidy landscape beds framed by a good looking border make any yard more appealing. Head to your local nursery, pick up some plants and borders and get started today. A more valuable yard is only a flowerbed away.

If you are welcoming a new dog to the family but have yet to pick a name, you might want to consider “Max.” Max has been a popular name for male dogs in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia on and off for years, many times topping the list as the most popular male dog name. Although names that described dog’s traits, such as Spotty or Dusty, were popular more than 50 years ago, today’s dogs (and cats) have decidedly human names. Dogs named Max have starred in movies (think Max in “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,”) and have also broken records. A dog named Max lived to be the oldest dog at age 26. Max has been a name given to pampered Yorkies as well as roughand-tumble mutts. If Max is not the name for you, Buddy, Jake and Rocky are a few of the other popular dog names.

Did you know? - Many area shopping malls offer some method of transportation between tourist sites or transportation hubs. For shoppers looking to avoid the hassles of finding a parking space at malls and shopping centers, shuttle buses may be the answer. To investigate the possibilities of transportation to a mall near you, visit the mall’s information kiosk during your next visit and inquire as to whether a shuttle van or bus is available. Also, contact local bus companies to find out whether there is a free or paid shuttle available. Typically, these will be stationed at parkand-rides or in large parking lots. The bus will pick up and deliver you to the same location. Seniors may be entitled to complementary busing to the mall courtesy of municipal senior busing systems or accessible ride programs.

Advice from the Pros: Do Not Neglect Auto Service The average age of a personal vehicle on the road today is more than 11 years, according to recent news reports. In tough economic times, it’s natural to rein in spending. But the experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) warn that putting off routine auto maintenance or ignoring service intervals is false economy. Small issues can morph into more expensive repairs. For example, failure to replace worn brake pads or a faulty oxygen sensor -- both relatively easy services for qualified auto technicians -- can result in expensive brake rotor service or costly replacement of the vehicle’s catalytic converter. Frequently neglected items include oil changes, tire and brake service, wheel alignment, air and fuel filters, and transmission service, according to ASE-certified auto technicians. Besides, a well-maintained vehicle gets better gasoline mileage, pollutes less, is safer to operate, and lasts longer than one that’s neglected, notes ASE. To help consumers choose a repair shop that fits their needs, ASE offers the following checklist: Look for a neat, well-organized facility, with vehicles in the parking lot equal in value to your own and modern equipment in the service bays. Look for a courteous staff, with a service consultant willing to answer all of your questions. Look for policies regarding estimated repair costs, diagnostic fees, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment. Ask if the repair facility specializes or if it usually handles your type of repair work. Look for signs of professionalism in the customer service area, such as civic, community, or customer service awards. Look for evidence of qualified technicians: trade school diplomas, certificates of advanced course work, and certification by ASE. Look for the ASE sign or logo; it means the shop employs nationally certified technicians. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. ASE-certified technicians wear blue and white ASE shoulder insignia and carry credentials listing their exact areas of certification. Their employers often display the blue and white ASE sign.

Wethersfield Ice Hockey Falls Against East Catholic by Mark DiPaola An early goal would not save the Wethersfield High School ice hockey team from a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Central Connecticut East leader East Catholic on Monday afternoon at Champions Skating Center in Cromwell. East Catholic responded almost instantly from Nick Laurito’s first period goal and did not look back the rest of the game, pouring pressure on the Eagles net. “We didn’t sustain it,” said Eagles head coach Dennis Tulimieri after the game. “We didn’t stay focused on the game.” The tying goal came off of a Griffin Casey breakaway. The junior forward took a neutral zone pass from Patrick Bishop and skated in alone, sliding the puck to the left of Eagles goaltender Tyler Godlewski and sliding it low at 7:55 of the first. East Catholic maintained a forecheck that crippled the Wethersfield breakout in the closing period of the game. “It really relies on the defensemen to make that first pass immediately,” Tulimieri said of his team’s clearing difficulties.

“They were taking a first and second look.” Tulimieri added, “Something can [also] be said of the forwards being in the position they’re supposed to be.” Things did not get better for Wethersfield from there on out. As the teams hit the final minute of the first period, East Catholic struck again. This time it was Lee Munson, taking a feed from Vinny Genovesi on a two-on-one break and one-timing it into the left corner to give his team the one goal edge. Godlewski faced a slew of shots in the third period that came due to defensive zone turnovers. He turned away two point blank shots from the slot by Alex Manner, before the second one rebounded to his right where Lee Munson was there to punch it in to put East Catholic up 3-1. After Godlewski left the game with an injury sustained when an East Catholic skater collided with him in the crease, the Eagles conceded again when James McCarthy skated out from behind the Wethersfield net and snapped a wrister that beat Domingo Rodriguez at 2:19 to make it 4-1.

Wethersfield coach Dennis Tulimieri said the team didn’t stay focused throughout the game.

Wethersfield’s one goal came early in the game, and things did not look up from there.

Newington Wrestlers Compete at New England Tournament by Katelyn Kelleher Newington High School qualified three and sent two wrestlers to the New England Tournament over the weekend, with both placing in the top eight. Brian Amato, who took the Class L title and second place in the state open in the 120-pound weight class, finished sixth overall at New Englands Saturday. He finished third last year. “He fell to an early 5-1 deficit” said Newington assistant coach AJ Maselli about Amato’s final match Saturday. He made up two points but ran out of time, with a final score of 6-3. The senior plans to wrestle for Worcester Polytechnic Institute next year. Junior Christian Zotti placed in the top eight at 138 pounds at the tournament. His first trip to New Englands, he won the Class L title this year and placed third at the state open. “He’s a safety on the Newington High School football team and wrestles in clubs year-round,” Maselli said. “He’s unsure if he wants to wrestle or do football or both [in college], but he’s a very good athlete--he could do either.” A knee injury caused senior Chris Chorzepa to pull out of the New England tournament after finishing second at the state open in the 170-pound weight class, despite being the reigning state open and New England champion. “He hurt his knee early in the year and had to default after the state open tournament,” Maselli said of Chorzepa, who will wrestle for Williams College next year. “He was very upset but he wanted to preserve his knee; rest it for the beginning of his college career.” Chorzepa and Amato boast the two best careers in the history of the Newington wrestling program and although this marks their final season, promising returners will give the team depth next year. “[Chorzepa and Amato] are going to be sadly missed,” Maselli said, “but we have a lot of great younger talent looking forward to filling in the holes.” Brendan Zotti joins his brother as one of the talented returnees.
