We provide opportunities to practice the skills that lead to inclusive, independent and fulfilling lives.”

School Capital Improvement Fund Ceiling Raised by Mark DiPaola The Newington Board of Education is going to have some more wiggle room work with within its Capital Improvement Program (CIP) fund--the Town Council has decided to raise the cap on the amount of money that can accumulate in the reserve. The Council voted unanimously to raise the current $425,000 fund ceiling to $1.2 million--adjusted for inflation--during its March 28 meeting. “All I’ve done is cut things,” said New-

ington Superintendent of Schools William Collins after the revision was passed. “I’ve never really added things. I’m glad I now have the funds to move the schools forward.” The Board of Education CIP fund was created with the intent of reserving money for small repair projects, but limits on the amount that was allowed to accumulate before it was transferred into the town’s general fund limited what the district could get done, Collins said after an April 4 Council budget meeting. Routine jobs, such as the

redoing of the lockers at Newington High School, would require the district to exhaust all of its funds, he said. “We weren’t able to do anything else because we had to save for that project,” Collins said, adding Because the funds had to be used before the cap was surpassed, the district was unable to build up the reserve for larger projects, prompting the Board of Education to seek aid from the Council for such endeavors. “Normally we have to beg for money,” he said. “But raising [the cap] will allow us

to save and get a lot more done ourselves.” Collins has his sights set on the Career Technology Program facilities, which he says can use some refurbishing. The district has also been looking to widen the driveway at the Anna Reynolds Elementary School to mitigate congestion caused by traffic at the exit and fix the air conditioning systems within several of its buildings. Including an annual Council-allotted $150,000 stipend, the Board of Education raises between $250,000 and $300,000 for the fund per year.

Council Funds First Half of Library Collection System by Mark DiPaola The Newington Town Council will provide the first wave of funding for a new automated collection system for the town library, it decided during Thursday its budgetary meeting last Thursday night, April 4. A proposal to decrease Capital Improvement Program funding by the $65,561 required to pay for half of the system’s cost was voted down 6-3 following the Council’s budgetary public hearing. “I’m totally in favor of funding this,” said Newington Town Councilor Terry Borjeson regarding the allocation, which will need to be matched in the following budget year in order to fully cover the cost of the new system. “I think it’s something we need to do. It’s getting us into the next

decade--or century--on this stuff.” The system would update the library’s collections, check out, and inventory operations. The enhanced security would help prevent the theft of all types of material--a task that has problematic for the current 25-year old system. An estimated $3,000 has been lost in stolen books. Councilor Beth Delbuano, who proposed holding off on the $65,000 expenditure, expressed concern regarding cost projections for next year that she said might indicate an inability to provide the second half of the required funding. “We’re going to get half a system, and what are we going to do next year if we don’t have the other sixty-five [thousand]?” Delbuano said. “It’s not a question of whether I support the library and their effort to move forward. It’s just a question of is this the year?”

Delbuano and Councilor Jay Bottalico, who, along with Councilo David Nagel, voted in favor of the reduction, speculated that moving forward with installing the system at this time would save the town less money than if the Council had waited. “We have 30,000 people to satisfy,” Bottalico said. “I cannot see spending $130,000 for a program that we don’t know what the savings are.” That concern is beside the point, said Councilor Clark Castelle. “Walking into a library that does not have the system is like walking into a classroom that doesn’t have a white board,” Castelle said. “I don’t think savings is the main issue. I’m not sure why we’re concentrating on that.”

Church Hill Park Closure Discussed Due to Leaking Pool by Mark DiPaola A discussion on whether or not the leaking Church Hill Pond Park should be closed arose after a budgetary amendment that would cut proposed utility expenditures for electricity and water by $19,000 was suggested during the Town Council meeting last Thursday, April 4. The proposed reduction, which was voted down 5-4, centered on a persisting leakage problem in the park’s pool, which is widely utilized for Parks and Recreation summer programs. “I guess my frustration lies around the fact that this has been going on for a very long time,” said Councilor Beth Delbuano, who supported the change. “We had the same discussion last year, and now a year has passed and we’re [still] in the middle of a study.” While a Samson and Weston study is ongoing, one thing that has been determined is that safety is not an issue, according to Dan Woods, Chairman of the Parks and Recreation Committee.

Spring/Summer Landfill Hours As of April 6, the Town of Newington’s landfill hours have returned to spring/summer hours of operation (Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m.5 p.m.). Residents are reminded that in order to dispose of branches, sticks and shrubs a valid landfill, sticker must be displayed. Permits may be obtained at the Highway Garage, located at 281 Milk Ln. (Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). Items such as grass, leaves, waste oil, scrap metal, propane tanks and electronics may also be brought to the landfill. Proof of residency is required to dispose of these items. Please remember that leaves and grass should not be placed into your trash or recycling container or raked to the curb, these items should be brought to the landfill or composted. Contact the Sanitation Department with any questions 860-667-5874.

Democrats Seeking Candidates 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. Box 31005, Newington, CT 06131-0035 You may also contact Town Committee Chair Carol Anest at 860-490-6561.

“It was my understanding that the pool is still being used,” said Councilor Myra Cohen. “If you close one pool, it could affect [Parks and Recreation’s] programs.” As long as use of the pool does not pose a danger, the park should remain open, said Newington Mayor Stephen Woods. “I don’t think we should just unilaterally decide to close one of our water parks,” Woods said. “If we don’t want to fund it, that’s a different story, but I don’t think it’s this body’s place to say we’re going to shut it down--that would be administration.” Councilor David Nagel suggested a temporary closing, at least until the study is completed. “The savings would help the town save money, and determine whether or not it needs to be closed for good,” Nagel said. The ongoing study has yet to determine where the leaks are coming from, Dan Woods said. “We will not accept a report with anything less than that,” he said. “We want to know where the leaks are.”

Little Lambs Coming to Saint Mary School Saint Mary School in Newington has announced the expansion of its Pre-School program. The new facility will open in September and will now offer full-day programs for three year olds as well as its existing full day program for four-year-olds. Half days will also be offered for both age groups, if parents are interested in this option. Another addition to the school is the opening of a Kindergarten Readiness class. This will serve as a stepping stone for children who are beyond the traditional Pre-Kindergarten program but are not quite ready for Kindergarten. In addition to the new classes that are available, the new space will allow for many more openings in the school’s popular Pre-K. It will be housed in the former convent building which is, conveniently, right next to the main school and will allow easy access to both. Last year, the school’s admissions director stated that the Pre-K program had a waiting list and had to turn down students because of space limitations. Saint Mary School is an elementary school offering quality, 21st century education for children in Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. Enrollment for the 2013-14 year is currently underway. For more information, or to schedule a tour, call 860-666-3844 or visit the school’s website at www.stmarynewington.com.

Proposed Budget seeks $2.35 Million Increase by Mark DiPaola A proposed town budget that will boost expenditures by over $2 million was presented by Wethersfield Town Manager Jeff Bridges at the Town Council meeting last Monday night, April 1. Bridges is asking for a total of $89.61 million, $2.35 million more than last year, which saw $87.27 million in expenditures. A public hearing for the proposal is slated for April 15 at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, but some residents offered some early insight, eager to have their say. “You could cut costs, and you don’t; nobody ever does,” said Wethersfield resident Robert Young during the public comment segment of the meeting. “This budget needs to go way down.” The proposal is calling for $53.46 million in education-related expenditures, up $1.84 million from last year’s $51.61 million, as the Wethersfield Board of Education pre-

by Mark DiPaola The Wethersfield Town Council unanimously approved an unspecified allotment--no more than $40,000--to go toward PCB abatement for the high school renovation project at its meeting Monday night. The Wethersfield High School Building Committee is in the process of complying with EPA standards that require the remediation and/or removal of PCBs that were discovered at the site of a project that includes the addition of a gymnasium, a library/media center, and music room, as well as renovations to the existing building. Whether the PCBs need to be removed and disposed of completely, or just encapsulated depends on the level that it is present, according to Robert May Jr., Vice President of Enviro Science LLC. Areas where there are 50 parts per million (ppm) or more require removal, he said. Previous test results reported a presence of less than 50 ppm in window and door frame caulking, although vinyl floor tiling and mastic materials were found to have levels at or exceeding the EPA threshold, May said. Most of the PCBs are in caulking mate-

Town Budget Public Hearing The annual public hearing on the town budget will take place Monday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in Town Council Chambers, 505 Silas Deane Hwy.

It will be televised live.

rials of expansion joints and carpet adhesive, May said. PCBs are commonly found in caulking materials such as window sashes, sills, and the tops, according to a presentation by Mays. They can move into adjacent materials and even migrate to soil and interior dust. Phase 1 of the abatement process, which involves identifying materials where PCBs reside, is wrapping up, with Phase 2--checking adjacent surfaces--about to begin, May said. The bulk of the remediation plan will involve materials that can become exposed during construction, according to Wethersfield Town Manager Jeff Bridges. “We’re at the stage where we need to test not the tile, but the brick and concrete, and determine the extent to which they need to be removed,” said Bridges. Air quality tests did not indicate that the PCB presence poses an inherent threat in the building’s current state, May said. “That testing was completed and there were no air issues found,” he said. The Council gave the renovation team the go-ahead to proceed in a phased process in order to be able to begin construction this summer as intended. A proposal for the site’s

Council Approves Funds for PCB Abatement additions was presented to the state March 19. The team was asked to make revisions to the plans and is in the process of having them approved, said Wethersfield Superintendent of Schools Michael Emmett at a March 26 Boar of Education meeting. The PCB abatement in the existing building-the second phase-is being conducted with the goal of starting renovations there by next summer. The EPA only recently began regulating sites with PCB presence--September 2009 was when the agency first began gathering facts about the substances in an effort to establish guidelines for dealing with them, according to Mays. “It’s not something we’ve been dealing with every year,” Mays said. “September 2009 was when the process started with PCBs.” An EPA ban of PCBs at construction sites was enacted in 1979, but 46 percent, or 55,000, of schools in the country were built before this came into effect, Mays said. “This is not something unique to Wethersfield,” Mays said. “It’s very prevalent in the United States.”

pares to comply with Common Core State Standard mandates that include rigorous teacher evaluation and training as well as workshop-style classroom configurations. Non-education-related expenditures will, tentatively, take a $1.02 million hike, going from last year’s $34.75 million to a proposed $35.77 million. A reduction has been proposed for road improvement funding, with Bridges looking to spend $510,607 less in this area than last year. 2012-13 saw Wethersfield allot $900,000 for this purpose. Shake-ups at the state level are projected to impact aid to municipalities, according to Bridges’ budget report. Although the towns used to receive $228,964 in Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) funds from the state, soon-to-be enacted education reform mandates have prompted a shift of these expenditures to Education Cost Sharing grants, according to the report. Governor Dan Malloy’s budget proposal is calling for the state to replace the PILOT funds through loans from the Town Aid Road and Local Capital Improvement Program,

What’s Happening

Rocky Hill & Cromwell? With Westlake

Rocky Hill Budget Presented, Residents Sound Off by Katelyn Kelleher Town Manager Barbara Gilbert presented her proposed $66.48 million 2013-14 budget at a public hearing last Wednesday, April 3. The proposed total budget calls for a $3.63 million, of 5.46 percent, spending increase and raise the mill rate by 0.8 mills to 26.7. The town operations budget shows a $1.48 million, or 4.93 percent, increase to $29.94 million. The $31.66 million proposed education budget shows a $1.46 million, or 4.85 percent, increase over the current fiscal year. As a result of refunding of bonding, $447,624 was saved in the town’s $1.68 million debt service, or a decrease of 21.0 percent. Capital improvements have increased by $1.13 million, or 55 percent, to $3.19 million. Gilbert said last Wednesday that the governor’s proposed budget calls for an elimination of motor vehicle taxes on vehicles with a value of less than $28,000, which “effectively removes 95.72 percent, or 17,592 vehicles, from the Grand List,

shifting the burden of [$3.7 million] in lost motor vehicle taxes to residents and businesses.” Municipalities have been given the option of putting off implementation of the motor vehicle tax elimination until 2014-15, therefore it had not been factored into this year’s budget, Gilbert said. In the Board of Education budget, the town is expecting an increase of $662,636 in the 2013-14 state Educational Cost Sharing (ECS) grant in lieu of lost Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) funding, which was previously used to balance the overall budget. Gilbert said at a recent forum with state legislators, she spoke on PILOT funding and pointed out that Rocky Hill has 447 acres of state property, which would amount to $202 million in taxable property if it were on the town’s Grand List. “They need to consider restoration of PILOT because we provide ambulance service to all of them and police service to most of them--only the veterans home when it has a major crime do the police respond to, beyond that our police are the first responders,” Gilbert said. “That’s property that, if it was taxable, we would have a mill rate

that’s envious to all, so the measly $598,000 [PILOT funding] that we received last year is very important to us.” Also included in Gilbert’s proposed budget is $255,000, plus the cost of benefits, for the addition of four police officers to allow four existing officers to act as school resource officers (SROs) in each of the town’s four schools. The addition of SROs has been backed by the superintendent of schools and police chief. Resident John Chunis spoke in favor of putting officers in the schools, adding one of the main testimonies following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School “was that the schools are soft, easy targets and that makes them very vulnerable and I am willing to pay whatever expenses necessary to make those schools a harder target.” A $370,000 expenditure is included in the budget for a microwave radio transmitter so the town’s critical communications would not rely on phone lines. The transmitter would serve the police, fire, ambulance, highway and parks departments and, once in place, would save the town $30,000 annually in telephone line fees.

use has experienced outages, most recently two weekends ago, Gilbert said, when crews had to fix it using a warehouse for obsolete parts. Given that the new transmitter has a life expectancy of about 20 years, Chunis asked whether the town had considered bonding the item to spread out the cost. Gilbert said she had looked at several payment options, including a five-year lease, which was prohibited by the Town Charter. “The refunding of bonding saved $447,000 this year--a one-time lump sum for a one-time only expense. It’s money that we won’t have next year and if I put it toward anything else that’s a normal revenue, it means an increase next year to make up that money,” Gilbert said. “So we looked at funding of the microwave system as a oneshot item to offset the savings received from refunding of bonds.” The next budget workshop will be held Wednesday, April 24, at 7 p.m. Town Hall. Adoption of the final budget is tentatively scheduled for May 13.

CarFit

Many older drivers have difficulty fitting into their own cars well. Whether it is adjusting mirrors in order to see the blind spot, positioning seats to be far enough away from the steering wheel yet with enough room to reach the gas pedal, or getting the seat belt to fit comfortably, there are many adjustments that can be made to find the safest fit. CarFit was developed to meet this need. Trained volunteers will lead drivers through a 12-point checklist with their vehicle, recommend personal vehicle adjustments and adaptations and offer community-specific resources and activities that could make their personal vehicles “fit” better or enhance their safety. An occupational therapist will also be on hand to provide information to older drivers on how to maintain and strengthen driving health. Individual appointments will take approximately 30 minutes.

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.

A healthy diet is supposed to provide all of the essential vitamins and minerals necessary to sustain a body. But thanks to finicky eating habits and limited choices, many children are not getting the vitamins and minerals they need to grow up healthy. Although many foods are fortified with certain vitamins, they still may not be enough to provide the level of nutrition required for a growing body. Parents may be well informed of a child’s needs of vitamin C to boost immune system function, but they may not be as readily informed about other vitamins that are essential to human health.

* Vitamin B6: Hyperactivity and impulsiveness are often blamed on an underlying medical condition, such as ADHD. But such conditions may be the result of a deficiency in vitamin B6.

* Vitamin A: Vitamin A promotes a healthy immune system and proper eyesight function. A child lacking in vitamin A may be tired and weak and experience weight loss. Other symptoms include dry eyes, skin scaling and respiratory infections.

* Vitamin D: Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” because it is produced in the body after exposure to the sun. Children who spend many hours indoors or wearing thick layers of sunscreen may not get enough vitamin D. Irritability, muscle cramps and even late teething could be tied to vitamin D deficiency.

Simple Solutions to Boost Your Energy Increasing daily energy levels is a goal for many men and women. Many adults are increasingly looking to energy drinks or highly caffeinated beverages like coffee to get the job done, while others are fearful that such beverages, though effective at improving energy levels, could have an adverse effect on their overall health. For those who feel energy drinks or another cup of coffee is not the ideal solution to increasing their energy levels, consider the following tips:

* Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can make people feel lethargic. Drinking the recommended daily amount of water can boost energy levels, especially after a workout when the body often craves fluids. * Carefully monitor sugar intake. Sweet foods with lots of sugar will provide an initial energy boost. However, that boost is fleeting, and blood sugar levels will rapidly drop after it. Instead of sugary snacks, select whole grain foods, which slowly and steadily increase the body’s energy levels. * Don’t skip meals. Exhausted or fatigued men and women are often busy at work, which commonly results in missed meals. Skipping meals, according to studies published in the journal Nutritional Health revealed, leads to greater feelings of fatigue by day’s end. Make eating all your meals a priority, and energy levels are likely to improve.

070512

* Exercise. While it might seem counterintuitive to exercise if you’re feeling fatigued, that fatigue might very well be a result of lack of exercise. Daily exercise helps increase energy levels and improve mood. Something as simple as taking a walk during a lunch break can vastly improve energy levels.

Thank you for saying you saw it in The Rare Reminder 4/11/13 The human eye blinks an average of 4,200,000 times a year. Skylab, the first American space station, fell to the earth in thousands of pieces in 1979. Thankfully most over the ocean. It takes approximately 12 hours for food to entirely digest. Human jaw muscles can generate a force of 200 pounds (90.8 kilograms) on the molars. The Skylab astronauts grew 1.5 - 2.25 inches (3.8 - 5.7 centimeters) due to spinal lengthening and straightening as a result of zero gravity. An inch (2.5 centimeters) of rain water is equivalent to 15 inches (38.1 centimeters) of dry, powdery snow. Tremendous erosion at the base of Niagara Falls (USA) undermines the shale cliffs and as a result the falls have receded approximately 7 miles over the last 10,000 years. 40 to 50 percent of body heat can be lost through the head (no hat) as a result of its extensive circulatory network. A large swarm of desert locusts (Schistocerca gregaria) can consume 20,000 tons (18,160,000 kilograms) of vegetation a day. The largest telescope in the world is currently being constructed in northern Chile. The telescope will utilize four - 26 ft. 8 in. (8.13 meters) mirrors which will gather as much light as a single 52 ft. 6 in. (16 meters) mirror. The Hubble Space Telescope weighs 12 tons (10,896 kilograms), is 43 feet (13.1 meters) long, and cost $2.1 billion to originally build. The longest living cells in the body are brain cells which can live an entire lifetime. The largest flying animal was the pterosaur which lived 70 million years ago. This reptile had a wing span of 36-39 feet (11-11.9 meters) and weighed 190-250 pounds (86-113.5 kilograms).

In the 1930s people bought cashews, peanuts and pistachios from vending machines. Competition was hot among the nut purveyors, and those selling pistachios played a little shell game, dying their product a bright red to make it stand out. First they caught your eye, and then they messed up your hands as the dye transferred from the nuts to your fingers. The custom has held. In truth, pistachios needed some dressing up because, compared to other kinds of nuts, they were quite ugly. The nut pickers harvested pistachios from trees by knocking them off with poles. Then the nuts were tossed into burlap bags and later, their outside hull was ground off. By then they looked ready for the nut hospital. Say, maybe that red is really blood.

COMMON MYTH: Stroke is a force of nature that randomly hits without warning. There’s nothing you can do to prevent it. A lifetime’s worth of bad habits can contribute to the risk of stroke (brain attack) You can reduce your risk of stroke by controlling high blood pressure, not smoking cigarettes, having regular medical check-ups and learning the warning signs of stroke so that you can get prompt medical attention should a brain attack occur. Immediate medical attention can often reduce the chance that a stroke is fatal or disabling.

NATIONWIDE, smoking costs the United States an estimated $65 billion dollars every year in both healthcare costs and lost productivity!

A lump of 1500 year old chocolate discovered in the tomb of a Honduran King was put on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York! People have built many amazing monuments to reflect their cultures. Many of the buildings or structures have withstood time that make people stare in astonishment. The Great Pyramid of Cheops, Cairo: It took 10000 workers over 20 years to build the Great Pyramid of Cheops, located just outside Cairo in Egypt. About 6.5 million tonnes of stone were used! Great Wall, China: At its peak, the wall was guarded by more than a million men Colosseum, Rome: Over 55000 spectators could watch the Gladiator games held within. Stonehenge, England: Built more than 4000 years ago to study summer and winter solstices and eclipses Eiffel Tower, Paris : You can take an elevator or climb 1792 steps to reach the top. Giant Statue: One of the largest indoor sculptures ever made was that of the Ancient Greek god Zeus in about 435 B.C. It was carved out of wood and covered with gold and ivory. It stood in the temple to Zeus at Oympia, Greece. Hanging Gardens of Babylon: The most famous of the kings of Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar II, rebuilt Babylon when he came to power in 605 B.C.He built beautiful terraced gardens for his wife which were considered the most amazing ever seen. (Babylon was located near the present-day city of Al Hillah, Iraq.)

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.

The most powerful laser in the world, the Nova laser at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, CA, USA, generates a pulse of energy equal to 100,000,000,000,000 watts of power for .000000001 second to a target the size of a grain of sand.

Did you know that there are 206 bones in the adult human body and there are 300 in children (as they grow some of the bones fuse together).

The fastest computer in the world is the CRAY Y-MP C90 supercomputer. It has two gigabytes of central memory and 16 parallel central processor units. The Swine Flu vaccine in 1976 caused more death and illness than the disease it was intended to prevent. HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE is defined as readings of 140/90 mmHg or greater that stay high over an extended time. High blood pressure is the major risk factor for stroke and also increases your risk of heart and kidney desease. If you have high blood pressure, work with your doctor to treat it. Also limit your intake of sodium to 2400 mg. per day and alcohol to one drink a day, control your weight and be physically active. X-rays have revealed that there are three different versions of Mona Lisa under the first image!

Flea’s can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms this is equal to a 6ft. person jumping 780 ft. into the air. The most dangerous animal in the world is the common housefly. Because of their habits of visiting animal waste, they transmit more diseases than any other animal. MOVE OVER! The law requires you to pull over to the right hand curb and allow emergency vehicles to pass. Failure to do so may cause serious accidents or delays in an emergency. Remember to move over in order to allow the emergency vehicle through. If you find youself behind an emergency vehicle, keep a reasonable distance behind it in case of a sudden stop or wide turn. If you are a pedestrian, stay out of the street, and keep control of your children or animals. The University of Alaska spans four time zones.

Business Spotlight Pieces of Time Restoring and Repairing Vintage Timepieces by Katelyn Kelleher In an age of digital clocks and cell phones, there are still those dedicated to fine timepieces and Pieces of Time in Newington is dedicated to repairing and restoring for those enthusiasts. American Watch International (AWI) Certified Watchmaker Rick Littlefield has been a collector for 35 years and has been in the business of timepiece restoration and repair for 21 years. “After repairing watches as a hobby, I went to watch making school in Cincinnati, Ohio and came back and opened Pieces of Time,” he said. “It’s a quirky little

thing I do; a little eccentric, but it’s fun.” Littlefield mostly works on better-grade vintage antique mechanical wrist and pocket watches, mainly from the 1970s or earlier. While many of his customers are collectors, often someone will come in with a family heirloom. “You may have somewhere your grandmother’s or grandfather’s watch,” he said. “It comes out of the safe deposit box or the sox drawer when someone’s getting married or some special occasion where it’s passed on to the next generation. And that’s always fun, hearing the stories.” Littlefield’s customers come

from all over--even some international clientele--for his precision and the care he puts into his craft. “To do what I do, you have to have a real love for it,” he said. “The difference between me and wholesale watch dealers, people who are really geared for production work, their process of cleaning a watch is much different; it’s much less labor. When I get a watch Rick Littlefield turned his hobby into a profession when he opened Pieces of Time in downtown Newington. it comes apart--every screw comes apart, it’s cleaned, everything’s inspected. There’s just a lot more labor involved and when you’re working on something that’s 70 years old and the goal is to make it look like it did 70 years ago, you can’t do that as a production.” Pieces of Time also buys and sells watches, and inventory is shown on its website, www. piecesoftime.net. “A lot of folks go up on the website and look at what I have and then they’ll come in,” Littlefield said. “I prefer the retail. I prefer the connection.” Pieces of Time, 154 Market Square, Newington, can be Littlefield restores and repairs vintage antique wrist and pocket watches. reached at 860-667-3533.

ADOPT QUASAR & MOON. Quasar is an exotic young boy that has bi-colored eyes and appears to be a Turkish Van mix. Odd colored eyes result when the white-spotting gene prevents melatonin granules from reaching one eye during fetal development resulting in a cat with one blue eye and one green, yellow, or brown. This most often occurs with white cats. Moon is also striking in that he has dramatic mackerel swirls. We do not know if the boys are brothers but they are the same age and get along very well. They are both very sweet! Please call 860-828-5287.

LeFOLL & LeFOLL Attorneys at Law

Purchasing or selling real estate can be a complex process. There are many adjustments which need to be calculated between the buyer and seller. For example, generally the seller needs to be reimbursed for the taxes which have been paid through the current tax periods. A buyer, on the other hand, may need to be credited for necessary repairs to the property. If you are buying or selling property, contact the Law Firm of LeFoll & LeFoll to assure that your interests are well protected.

Did you know? Families with safety in mind gravitate toward vehicles that earn top safety awards. For those in the market for a new sporty sedan, consider the all-new 2014 Mazda6, which earned a “Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This is the first Mazda to earn this new, more demanding designation, which now includes the IIHS small overlap test. This test replicates what happens when the front corner of a car collides with another vehicle or an object. The Mazda6 scored “Acceptable” on the overlap test as well as “Good” in other areas of testing. In addition, Mazda6 Touring models feature a blind spot monitoring system, or BSM, and rear cross traffic alert as standard equipment.

Newington Takes Rocky Hill in Lacrosse Scrimmage by Mark DiPaola The Newington High School lacrosse team rode hattricks from Ryan Fresen and Brendan Richard to an 18-6 landslide pre-season victory over Rocky Hill High School last Tuesday, April 2, at home. Fresen also had two assists, with Richard tallying five during the Indians scoring rampage. The Indians dominated the vast majority of play, limiting Terrier possession and forcing frequent turnovers on many of the Rocky Hill clearing attempts. The Terriers’ struggles in the groundball game limited their ability to transition smoothly, resulting in a game that saw the ball in their defensive third of the field for most of it. The first of Fresen’s goals came in the second half of the first quarter. The senior attack man took his defender up top, face dodging to his left, and driving down the alley before cutting in for a shot from just above the crease. Fresen would strike again not

long after. Fresen, who was parked in front of the crease, picked up the ball out of a lengthy scramble for possession and drove it home for his second of the game. Fresen would cap off the hattrick in the third quarter following a faceoff win that saw Sixto Acosto run the ball from midfield to the top of the Terriers’ defensive zone. Acosto spotted Fresen cutting to the net and threaded the needle. Turning as he caught it, Fresen fired the ball into the net for his third. Indians goaltender Jeffrey Turner put in a solid performance in the cage, stopping nine of the 15 shots he faced. Backup net minder Drew O’Leary stopped all four of the shots taken on him. Faceoff dominance helped Newington to sustain their unrelenting attack--Indians midfielder John Oravetz won 16 of the 23 that he took. Jeffrey Rossman had two goals for the Indians, with Oravetz and Thomas Ganley adding tallies of their own.

The Indians dominated Rocky Hill High School in a pre-season scrimmage last Tuesday, April 2.

Newington Girls Track Under New Leadership by Katelyn Kelleher It may be a building year for the Newington High School girls track program, with a new head coach and with the loss of several graduates who were high scorers. Formerly the assistant coach, Jen Deschenes has taken over as head coach this year, with Bridget Teevan as an assistant coach. The team kicked off its season last Wednesday, April 3, against Conard on the Conard track. With the loss of last year’s graduates Anjalie Rowe, Camille Lawson, Danielle Forrest and Kaylie McNally, three of whom were members of the 4X100 relay team, the Indians will have to rely on key returnees. Some of this year’s stronger runners are Tina Sawyer, Wilmarie Rodriguez, Laura Buonocore, Ashleigh Beauford, Stasha Greenlach, Sarah Wojtowicz, Audrey Orwa and Laura Zadzilko. The Indians, who went 3-10 last season, will race Southington High School Tuesday at home.
