Newington?

Seniors Attest to the Need for Affordable Housing by Mark DiPaola Newington is waiting for a response from the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) regarding its application for a $20,400 technical assistance grant, which will cover the costs of hiring a consultant to advise on the potential construction of senior affordable housing in what is known as an overlay zone. Although the consultant’s first priority would be to determine whether or not there is a substantial need in town for senior affordable housing, some residents can already see it. Rose Lyons is one of them. At 68, she’s been exploring her options and has not had much luck so far. “I feel that there’s a shortage in affordable senior housing, not just in Newington, but statewide,” Lyons said. “Every place I go to, they have a waiting list.” After digging for information on New Meadows, a housing complex owned by the North Haven-based company New Samaritan, Lyons was told that her $31,000 income, a compilation of social security and pension benefits she receives, was too high for her to qualify. “The thing I find most frustrating is each project or facility has its own guidelines,” Lyons said. That means that factors such as the minimum age of a prospective resident and

how little they have to earn to be eligible can vary from development to development. How stringent the qualifications are depend on how much money there is to throw around, said Newington Senior Center Director Dianne Stone. “It’s all based on the funding that the housing developer or owner gets to operate it,” Stone said. Lyons had more luck in Berlin over at Stone Bridge, a Metro Realty apartment complex. She qualified, but getting in still would have been tricky. “They have such a long waiting list that they won’t take an application until you’re ready to move in,” she said. “The Catch 22 is I gotta sell the house before I go into housing, but they don’t know if they’re going to have an apartment for me.” Getting left in wait list limbo is not uncommon, be it public or private housing. At the Newington Housing Authority, for instance, none of the three state-funded complexes have readily available apartments, said Stone. The current waiting list has 70 people on it. “Regardless of how many people move out, the list just grows,” she said. “They reach a number wherein which there’s no sense in taking any more applications. People can be waiting for years.” Other facilities are experiencing similar problems, with 40 people wait listed for elderly housing at Market Square and 62 at

Meadowview, Stone said. And it doesn’t appear that the situation will improve anytime soon. In fact, with a projected increase in the aging population, things could very well get worse, Stone said. “We know that there are going to be more and more older people in the community,” she said. The state Department of Social Services projected that those over 60 will number 9,807 by the year 2025, part of a continued increase that will stretch over the next 25 years, Stone said. Although the need for affordable senior housing is unlikely to grow proportionately with the elderly population, it is, nevertheless, a significant one, Stone said. “The reality is, most people will never go into senior housing,” Stone said. “[But] if you have 9,000 adults in town, even if 10 percent want to go in, that’s 900 people.” Stone estimated that Newington has about 200 or fewer units of affordable housing to work with. Since the availability shortage is not unique to Newington, local applicants can expect to be up against prospective residents from out of town as well. “You can’t place any restrictions on that,” Stone said. “I understand the frustration, but it’s the nature of housing.” Lyons has lived in Newington for 65 years. She would like to make that longer, but the affordable housing scarcity might not leave her with much of a choice.

“It’s just a long process--it’s frustrating at times,” Lyons said. If Newington does get the grant to hire a consultant to examine the feasibility of an overlay zone--an area that is exempt from normal zoning regulations to create an incentive for contractors that would be able to build a higher volume of units in exchange for making a percentage of them affordable for seniors--it will be only the start of another long process that includes weighing aging population levels, socioeconomic needs, and months of discussions with residents and developers. A public hearing, the final leg, will not occur until December, if it even gets that far. Lyons figures she can wait a little longer, at least for now. Like most elderly residents, she chose to stay in her home. Typically, a person might look to relocate due to the burdens of overall affordability or maintenance costs, according to Stone. Lyons is not at that point yet, but she is getting there. She had a state grant to cover work on her roof, but said she doesn’t assume she’ll be that lucky if another repair issue arises. That factor alone may force her to consider affordable housing. “It’s important not only to support the building of new affordable housing, but to find ways to support people in their homes,” Stone said.

School Nurses Opt to Do Away with Union Contracts by Mark DiPaola Two years after its establishment, the union of Newington Public School nurses has been dissolved. The nurses opted not to renew the union contract this year, voting to eliminate their negotiation representation in February. The decision was filed through the state Department of Labor. “It just takes out the middleman, really,” said Newington High School nurse Mercy Hetherington, who served as the union’s president. “Frankly, I’d rather negotiate myself.” Brokering contract deals without union aid can be tricky, and, according to Newington Superintendent of Schools William Collins, until two years ago, Newington

was “one of few districts” to not have such a body in place for its nurses. “They exercised their right, which they’re entitled to do,” Collins said. “But I’m not sure that their benefits were any greater [under the union].” The decision was made public at the April 19 Board of Education meeting, and was met with surprise by board Chairman Marc Finkelstein. Hetherington and her colleagues, however, based the decision on relations they have had with the Board of Education. “We figured that we could work just as well with them than the union,” Hetherington said. “We always worked well with the board, so why not just go back?” The push to establish the union was led by two staff

members that have since left, Hetherington said. Although the union contract would have set minimums on what the board had to provide for the nurses as far as compensation and other areas, the employees may have felt hindered by other restriction, Collins said. “There’s not as much flexibility when you’re in a union,” Collins said. “It probably made it a lot more difficult for them. When you’re not bound by contract restraints, there’s a lot more flexibility you can have.” Collins later added, “If somebody wanted to do something outside of the contract, we couldn’t allow that. Like if somebody wanted to take a day off, leave early--I’m just using that as an example--we wouldn’t be able to do that.”

Reservoir Presence at Toll Brothers Site Adds to Concerns by Mark DiPaola As Newington prepares to contend with Toll Brothers’ lawsuit against the Conservation Commission, a new development-

-the presence of a reservoir at Cedar Mountain--has come up. Newington resident John Bachand, a regular attendee at the series of lengthy commission hearings during which Toll Broth-

Saint Mary Student Scholarships

ers argued its case for a housing development at the site, presented the Town Council with clerk’s office documents pertaining to the reservoir at its April 23 meeting. The documents, which he said date back to 1909, include a warranty deed for a holding tank, suggesting that a reservoir might exist. “It’s proof, by itself, that there were aquifers there,” Bachand said during a phone interview. Bachand said that he intends to do further research on the matter, but what this could mean is that, despite Toll Brothers claims to the contrary, the site may have

a significant ground water presence. “We were saying right along that there was a much more robust presence than they wanted the Conservation Commission to know,” Bachand said. Throughout the hearings, Toll Brothers and its team of experts from Dru Associates cited dryness of the area’s wetland’s during drier years as evidence that they were dependent solely on rain and snow melt precipitation, a claim that Bachand and other residents disputed. Bachand, who is often at the site, said that the basins only dry out in the most extreme months.

The perceived dangers posed to wildlife and nearby infrastructure by blasting, a controversial rock removal method, as well as the presence of the endangered Swamp Cottonwood tree species, were amongst the various concerns that filled the commission hearings with residents throughout Toll Brothers’ application process. Citing a tight timetable under which statutory restrictions mandated that they make a decision, as well as the growing volume of testimony related to the aforementioned issues, the commission voted against the proposal on the last night of hearings. Toll Brothers filed a lawsuit in late March.

Wethersfield Farmers’ Market Brings New Goods by Mark DiPaola An expanding Wethersfield Farmers’ Market will begin its weekly sales of fresh grown produce and other items on May 16. The market, which runs through Halloween, has increased its roster of vendors to 35 to 40 for this year and will have a variety of extra programs that include live music and educational presentations at its Solomon Welles House, 220 Hartford Ave., location. “Last year we were just breaking 30 [vendors], with about 18 the year before,” said farmers’ market organizer Stephanie Jarm. This year’s vendors include Glastobury’s Dondero Orchards and Killam & Bassett, as well as Oxen Hill Farm from Simsbury. Eaglewood Farm will be bringing a mix of poultry, salmon and eggs, while customers can try Sweet Pea Cheese’s goat cheese, milk and yogurt. A number of

craftsmen and artisans, including All Things Beaded and Wethersfield’s own Pysh Jewelry, will have stands at the market as well. The slew of locally-grown fruits and vegetables, which, according to Jarm, run for about the price of supermarket -old organic products, draws market-goers looking for healthier food. Not only that, but the experience is more personal, Jarm said. “I think being able to talk to the person that produces your food is priceless,” she said. “You can make requests and they tell you about the seed. A lot of our farmers try to stay away from GMOs or any additives in the soil.” The farmers can also show customers how to enhance what they purchase--the Wethersfield Farmers’ Market will be releasing a cookbook that will be on display at each of the stands. “You pick up a weird vegetable and they can be like, ‘Oh, there’s a recipe for that,’” Jarm said. “It just makes it so much more tangible and accessible to people.” The market will also offer baked goods, Italian ice, and food trucks from Hartford’s Lucky Taco and the Hartford Advocate Best Cupcake award-winning Nova Cupcakes. For the first time in its history, the market will also have kettle corn, Jarm said. Other related programs that will be run throughout the market’s five and a half-month duration include lectures at the Solomon Welles House geared toward sustainable living. Visitors to the market can learn about healthier food, fuel-saving transportation such as biking, and how to plant seed bombs. On Sept. 12, the market will hold its Farm to Table Dinner, a catered meal utilizing all of the vendors’ products. The Wethersfield Farmers’ Market will be held on

Thursdays from 3-6 p.m., and 3-7 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of each month, Jarm said. “We got feedback about our time and people not being able to get there after work,” she said.

Memorial Day Parade to Honor World War II Veterans by Mark DiPaola Legal Notice Town Of Wethersfield Zoning Board of Appeals Notice is hereby given that the Wethersfield Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on Monday, May 20, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room at the Police Station, 250 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, Connecticut, to hear and be heard on the following applications: Application No. 6118-13 Thomas & Michelle Gardella, seeking permission to park in the front yard a 25’ Airstream trailer exceeding the permitted length at 220 Wolcott Hill Road, East side, B Residential Zone, (§3.5.1.B.3 ).

Application No. 6120-13 Joseph Moruzzi, (renewal) seeking a variance to maintain a temporary sign exceeding the maximum square foot area permitted located on the building at 1290 Silas Deane Hwy, East side, RC Zone, (§6.3.G.1 ). Application No. 6121-13 Arnold Uvino, seeking a variance to erect front steps having less than the required front yard setback at 6 Hubbard Place, North side, B Residential Zone, (§3.7.A ). Town of Wethersfield Zoning Board of Appeals Thomas Vaughan, Chairman by Fred P. Valente Duly Authorized Dated at Wethersfield, Connecticut, this 30th day of April, 2013.

Wethersfield is planning a massive Memorial Day parade to honor its veterans--both living and deceased. The May 25 event will begin at 9 a.m. with a parade formation at the Department of Motor Vehicles on State Street, according to Memorial Day Committee Chairman Larry Spellacy. The procession will feature a wide variety of organizations, including the police and fire departments, local scout troops, and the Wethersfield High School Marching Band, as well as federal, state and local government officials, Spellacy said. The parade has been held

annually since the late 1970’s, and the turnout is typically pretty good, Spellacy said. “In terms of the number of participants, it’s a lot,” Spellacy said. “I would guess on an excess of a thousand people--probably two to three times the number of people lining the streets [watching]. It’s quite a celebration.” This year will center on World War II veterans, namely Charles Officer, an American Legion member who served during that period, Spellacy said. “We honor a particular group every year, although it’s not exclusive,” he said. “This year our theme is, ‘Let us not forget.’” The parade is being co-sponsored by the American Legion,

along with Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign War, and the Wethersfield Parks and Recreation Department. Although the roughly $5,000 it will cost to hold the event was a budget line item, residents are welcome to send donations to Town Hall, Spellacy said. The 1.2-mile march, which is estimated to take about an hour to complete, will leave State Street and follow a route that goes through Old Wethersfield, as well as the Broad Street Green, and finish at the cemetery entrance at Marsh Street. A memorial service will be held inside the cemetery, along with the reading of the names of veterans who lost their lives in World War I, World War

II, Korea, and Vietnam. Town Council and Board of Education members will march alongside state and federal officials in the parade, Spellacy said. State Senator Chris Murphy will be participating, and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal is expected a well. “He said he [Blumenthal] plans on attending, but their schedule is so busy, they don’t usually commit until the very end, but he’s been there every year,” Spellacy said. The post-parade ceremony will also feature a short presentation by Silas Deane Middle School eighth-grader Alexis Maher, whose essay on the holiday won a Memorial Day Committee contest.

Did you know? Morning sickness is a condition many pregnant women must face. It is generally one of the first symptoms of pregnancy and can begin as early as six weeks after conception, lasting until the end of the first trimester. Despite its name, morning sickness is not reserved for early in the day but can occur in the morning, afternoon and/or evening. The American Pregnancy Association says more than half of all pregnant women experience the nausea and vomiting associated with morning sickness. Nausea is associated with the increasing levels of hormones in the body. Many doctors are happy when women report morning sickness because it is an indication that the placenta in the womb is developing well. Eating smaller meals and nibbling on bland crackers before rising from bed can alleviate some symptoms of morning sickness. Try to remain hydrated, especially if you are plagued with bouts of vomiting. Sipping water or even flat ginger ale throughout the day may settle the stomach. Ifmorning sickness becomes severe and results in considerable weight loss, consult your doctor.

Ganglions are fluid filled swellings of the lining of joints or tendons, often appearing on the ankle or top of the foot. They are slow growing and they change in size. Repeated irritation can weaken the lining of a joint or tendon, leading to a ganglion. Boots are likely to cause ganglions if worn consistently, as they put stress on the foot and ankle. Bone spurs may also cause ganglions by irritating joints and tendons. Ganglions are difficult to treat without surgery, but non-surgical methods may relieve some symptoms. Pads placed around the area may ease pressure and friction. Fluid removal, icing for 15-20 minutes, medication and limiting movement may relieve symptoms. For ongoing or severe pain, surgery may be recommended. If you feel that you have a ganglion or any other foot problem, contact the Connecticut Foot Care Center location most convenient to you for consultation with one of our Foot Specialists. www.ctfootcare.com • Follow us on Facebook & Twitter!

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.

According to an old English system of time units, a moment is one and a half minutes. The typewriter was invented in 1829, and the automatic dishwasher in 1889. The wristwatch was invented in 1904 by Louis Cartier. When glass breaks, the cracks move at speeds of up to 3,000 miles per hour. By raising your legs slowly and laying on your back, you can’t sink in quicksand. Ten minutes of one hurricane contains enough energy to match the nuclear stockpiles of the world.

Pet of the Week

Cadbury is a happy, friendly dog that just wants to have fun and hang with his people. Typical of a retriever, he loves to play fetch, and it’s a great way to provide him with some much needed exercise. He’s an energetic dog, but as long as he gets his daily walk or playtime (or both), he’s happy to chill out and watch some TV, or hang with you while you work about the yard. He trains easily and is very cooperative, he really wants to please. He walks the leash like a pro, and is a pleasure to walk. Come meet Cadbury today!

Rock Cats Highlights The Rock Cats are set to begin another road trip, their only multiple city road trip in the month of May. New Britain begins the six game voyage in Portland, Maine and then shifts south to Manchester, New Hampshire. The Cats’ will play a ton of home games in the month of May so with the weather getting better hopefully, you all will get a chance to come out to New Britain Stadium. Winning Homestand The boys have been playing well and went 4-3 on their last homestand, winning two of three against Richmond and splitting a four game set against Harrisburg. New Britain finished the month of April with a 13-12 record. The Cats’ secured a winning month with Monday’s 16-8 victory against Harrisburg. Knowing the Sea Dogs Well The Rock Cats begin a stretch of seven games in 10 days against the Portland Sea Dogs. After playing three games in Southern Maine this weekend the Cats will host the Dogs next week in the Hardware City. So far, Portland has won both series and 5 of the 7 games this year. Twins GM on the trip Minnesota Twins General Manager Terry Ryan is on the current road trip with the Rock Cats. He always comes to watch the Rock Cats twice during the season. He has an early trip in April and then will visit again later as he does his usual evaluation. It is always great catching up with him and having him on the Rock Cats Radio pregame show. Fox Sports Radio 1410 Adds Road Games to Broadcasting Schedule The Rock Cats are thrilled to announce that Fox Sports Radio 1410 is now broadcasting all Rock Cats’ games home and road. As many of you know, AM 1410 was the Hartford affiliate for the New York Yankees over the past several years and now the flagship station for the Cats. Last year, Fox sports carried most of the home games but will now air each game live. In addition, fans in Middletown and down by the shoreline can catch the road games on WMRD AM 1150 and WLIS AM 1420. As usual, all games will be streamed on-line on www.foxsportsradio1410.com. Now on Twitter Yes it’s true, I’m now on twitter! Haha… Special thanks to the Rock Cats front office, Kat, Mike and Mark for helping me through this. I will be providing up dates on team and breaking some news on twitter as well. You can follow at @JDooleysports. The Rock Cats return home Thursday May 9th when they host the Red Sox Double-A Affilliate Portland Sea Dogs at 6:35pm. For tickets or information call (860) 224-8383 or visit www.rockcats.com.

Strong Individual Performances at Middletown Invite by Katelyn Kelleher The Wethersfield, Cromwell, Rocky Hill and Newington outdoor track teams put forth strong individual performances at the 2013 Middletown Invitational Varsity Meet Saturday at Middletown High School, and the Wethersfield boys team walked away with a fourth place overall score in a field of more than 50 teams. Many of the Wethersfield boys’ top performances were in the field, and included a fifth-place pole vault of 12’6” from senior Tyler Raymond, third and fifth in the javelin from junior Whit Devaux and senior Chris Melendy at 167’10” and 157’01”, respectively, and a 10th place triple jump of 40’05.25” by senior Jalyn Campbell The 4X400 relay of senior Jason Difazio, freshman Troy Stegman and juniors Kyle Vonick and Connor Jones took fourth in 3:30.44.

On the Eagles girls team, senior Kellie Fortin pole vaulted 9’06”, good for fourth place. Junior Faith

Sophomores Stephanie Hartnett in the high jump, Sydney Crute in the 400 and Nicole Faucette in the 800 and 1,600 meters each had top-20 finishes for the Panthers.

Newington Lacrosse Loses Early Lead to Farmington by Mark DiPaola A hattrick performance from senior Ryan Fresen was not enough to hold off a fivegoal Farmington comeback during the Newington High School lacrosse team’s 7-6 loss at home last Tuesday, April 30. Going into the fourth quarter, Newington, ahead 5-2, appeared to be in control of a tight contest marked by frequent takeaways, decisive groundball battles and solid defense by both sides, but a late Farmington surge would change that. Newington’s troubles began with penalties. Farmington had already been denied on a couple of point-blank shot opportunities by the goaltending efforts of Jeffrey Turner, who made 20 saves on the afternoon. But Farmington made good on a man-up opportunity, moving the around up top before finding an attack man rotating unmarked to the right post for the hockey wraparound-style finish. Farmington followed up that tally with another goal, a time and room shot from high left, pulling them to within 5-4. The Newington defense limited their opponents’ inside shots for most of the game, covering well off ball and not allowing anyone to get open off the cut. Farmington broke through off a feed from behind the net to the right that found a player running diagonally through the middle toward the crease. He jumped to catch the high pass in the air, snapping into the back of the net as he landed to tie the game. The go-ahead goal came off another unmarked rotation to the left side of the crease, where the Farmington player faked Turner high and stashed the ball low. Farmington added another literally seconds after, closing out Newington’s third straight loss.

The Indians couldn’t hang on to their early 5-2 lead last Tuesday, as a late rally by Farmington gave Newington its third consecutive defeat at 7-6.
