Fungal Problems Athlete’s foot is often spread in areas where people go barefoot, like public showers or swimming pools. There may be mild scaling and itching, or painful inflammation and blisters. Commonly, it starts between the toes or in the arch. The condition may spread to the bottom or sides of the foot. A mild condition will respond to over-the-counter medications. Stronger medications may be prescribed if condition persists. Fungus may also affect the toenails. This results in thickened, discolored and sensitive nails which may become infected. There have been advances in both topical and oral anti-fungal medications resulting in better success with treatment. In some cases, the toenail may be permanently removed. If you suffer from fungal problems, contact the Connecticut Foot Care Center nearest you for an appointment. One of our foot specialists can suggest the most appropriate treatment for your individual fungal problem. www.ctfootcare.com • Follow us on Facebook & Twitter! 506 Cromwell Ave. ROCKY HILL

Veterans Tax Exemptions Brought Before Council by Mark DiPaola A bid to expand the scope of veterans’ tax exemptions was stalled at Newington’s Town Council meeting last Tuesday, Oct. 9. The proposal, which was to make more combined family income brackets eligible for veterans’ tax exemptions ranging from $2,000-10,000, will be reconsidered and brought to a final vote at the next Town Council meeting on Oct. 23. A motion to include veterans’ families falling under a combined income bracket

of $50,000 failed to garner the required five council votes when three members abstained from voting. Councilor Terry Borjeson was one of those who abstained, saying more information is needed before a decision can be made and that voting at that point would have put him between passing it prematurely and halting what he sees as a positive move. “I’m in favor of doing everything we can for our veterans,” Borjeson said. “I didn’t want to vote to not give the money.” Where Newington stands compared to

other towns when it comes to veterans aid efforts, as well as the town’s own budgetary constraints, are among the things to consider when weighing the decision, Borjeson said. “I’m certainly not opposed to spending the money if we have it,” Borjeson said. “Our veterans are our heroes.” The Council currently allocates $50,000 per year for tax exemptions for eligible veterans at a $2.36 annual cost to residential taxpayers, according to Newington Tax Assessor Steve Juda. Extending these benefits to those falling under the $50,000 house-

hold income bracket would increase council expenditures to $100,000, costing taxpayers not eligible for exemptions $5.93 each year. A $10,399 grant from the state was factored in when calculating the cost, Juda said. “They’re also considering something that would be something less or something more than that,” he said. The motion would have increased the number of veterans eligible for tax exemptions from 196 to 433, Juda said. The Tuesday, Oct. 23 Town Council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.

Newington Team Takes Bronze in Softball World Series Sunday, Sept. 30, the 06111ers softball tournament softball team finished third in a field of 176 teams in the “E” United States Specialty Sports Association Softball World Series in Orlando, Fla. The local Newington town league all-star team finished 9-2, shocking several teams down south.  The 06111ers started strong, winning their three games before losing a tough 6-3 game to the soonto-be world champions, “Go Time” out of Virginia. Saturday’s first test was to win six games in a row in the 90-degree heat to play in the final three Sunday. After sweeping through the first three games, they advanced to the ESPN Disney, Wide World of Sports Stadium. Another three wins positioned the 06111ers into Sunday’s

Loser Bracket Final, where loss to Nu Coating from New Hampshire, 15-8 ruined the chances of a world title. The 06111ers only let up 17 runs in 6 games on Saturday behind the pitching of Mark Joseph and the stellar defense of the 06111ers. Joseph, Matt Morrison and Dave Herold made the all-world tournament team for the 06111ers, but the defense of Joe Cousineau, Jeff Perillo and Dan Angelillo allowed fewer than five runs per game. The 06111ers was started three years ago, when Joseph and a few others were watching games at Churchill Park in Newington. The few kept pulling stars aside from different teams in the league to be a part of a weekend tourney team.

Cove Side Carnival Rides Offer a Dizzying View by Mark DiPaola

If you ask me, it was 35, but they let him on.” The Fagans are just a few of the locals that made the trip to Cove Park in Old Wethersfield for the carnival, which offered a slew of rides, games, and food vendors. The event, which ran Friday through Sunday, also acted as a fundraiser for the sponsoring Keane Foundation’s The wavy slide turned out to be one of the carnival’s after school, family, and more popular attractions.

Spinning in mid-air seemed to be a theme that was consistent with many of the rides, such as the popular Typhoon. “The kids go on over and over and over again,” Wethersfield resident Helen Desrochers said of the rides. “The kids go to the carnival every year and they love it.” The rides were not the only draw, however.

Early Childhood Collaborative Outlines Development Plan by Mark DiPaola It has been two years in the making, and now a road map to enhanced early childhood development is ready to be presented to the community, members of the Wethersfield Early Childhood Collaborative announced to the Board of Education Tuesday, Oct. 9. The wide-ranging plan, which will target everything from health/ nutrition and educational development to community involvement, will focus on children from birth to age eight, Cathy Bagley of the Early Childhood Collaborative said. “We started with a process that tells you to have a results 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, October 22, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Town Hall, 505 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, Connecticut, to hear and be heard on the following applications: 1.

Dated at Wethersfield, Connecticut, this 5th day of October, 2012.

statement first,” Bagley said. “‘What result do you want to get out of your community plan? What do you want to look for?’ For us, that was that all Wethersfield children, birth through eight, would be healthy, successfully developmental learners, and connected to the community.” The report, which will be accessible at the Wethersfield Board of Education’s website, was put together with the aid of surveys, focus groups, state and local data, and community outreach, Bagley said. The organization’s plan aims to benefit children starting from birth, but it includes health-related issues that factor in even before that. One of the report’s focus areas is prenatal health, or, the timeliness and frequency at which pregnant women get to the doctor. In Wethersfield, 24 to 33 percent of expectant mothers did not get prenatal care deemed adequate over the past several years, although the rate dipped in 2009-the most recent year of available data--to 17 percent, according to data the Early Childhood Collaborative obtained from the state Department of Public Health. “That’s a positive trend. We don’t know whether that will continue,” Early Childhood Collaborative Coordinator Marie Massaro said. “So we have strategies of talking to local health care providers, talking to women who are pregnant or recently had children to figure out what’s going on.” It is also important that a community plan work to combat obesity in order for it to be effective in improving early childhood health, Massaro said. The report prepared by the Early Childhood Collaborative included data provided by Wethersfield school nurses regarding the Body Mass Index (BMI). The nurses’ data was based on the measurement of BMI of three groups of children when they were in kindergarten, and again when they reached sixth grade. Thirty percent of Wethersfield High School’s Class of 2017 was

overweight or obese when they were in kindergarten, and 35 percent of the students in this group were in this category when they reached sixth grade, according to the group’s report. Thirty two percent of the Class of 2015 was overweight or obese when they entered kindergarten, with a jump to 34 percent when they hit sixth grade. Thirty one percent of the Class of 2015 was classified as overweight or obese for both periods at which they were measured, the report said. “There wasn’t a big increase in the obesity rate, which tells us that these kids are coming into kindergarten overweight or obese,” Massaro said. “And that’s obviously putting them at risk for a lot of health issues.” Combating Wethersfield’s obesity problem will take a combination of parent education, health policies within the schools, and a wider community campaign, Massaro told attendees of a Thursday, Oct. 11, meeting at the Pitkin Community Center. Massaro admitted that when it comes to measuring the development of kindergarteners, little data is available because very young children are not typically tested. She pointed to Kindergarten Entrance Inventory, an assessment conducted by kindergarten teachers to measure language and literacy--the best indicator of reading ability--in new students. “Our children are not at the rate we would like to see them at,” she said. “So clearly there’s something that needs to be addressed with parents of young children before they even walk in our doors, because research shows us-once they start behind, they tend to stay behind.” Wethersfield’s performance on the Connecticut Mastery Test, (CMT) particularly in the third grade, is another indicator that improvements need to be made, Massaro said. On the CMT, 78.8 percent of third-graders scored proficient in reading in 2012, up from 71.1 percent from 2009, according to

CTreports.com. In 2011, 59.5 percent of thirdgraders in Wethersfield reached goal level on CMT reading scores, according to state Department of Education data included in the report. With the exception of 2010, during which 63.1 percent were reading on goal level, an average of 40 percent of third-graders were not reading at goal level. “The research tells us that that is one of the most crucial precursor indicators of how a child’s going to do overall in their academic career,” Massaro said. Massaro said students receiving free and reduced price lunch seemed to have the most trouble on the CMT. On the reading portion of the test, 33.3 percent of students eligible to receive free or reduced price lunch were reading at goal level in 2011, according to state Department of Education data from the report. Educating parents on early

literacy through workshops, making information more accessible, providing more reading materials to children in the targeted age group, and a kindergarten transition program, can help reverse these trends, the report said. The plan also aims to improve children’s sense of “connection to their community.” A survey that the Early Childhood collaborative put out last fall revealed 40 percent of respondents lacked that sense of belonging, Massaro said. The survey had a 30 percent response rate. “One thing we found is that we did not have a great response rate from parents of young children,” she said. “We had terrific response from adults who had children who were maybe a little bit older. So we want to go back and talk to those folks a little bit more.”

Selectmen Discuss Next Steps Toward Town Manager by Katelyn Kelleher

“The process for selecting a search firm could take at least a month; I would say two months,” Johnston said. “By The Cromwell Board of Selectmen last Wednesday, January have a search firm in place, then the interview proOct. 10, discussed the contract award process for a search cess. September is probably not a bad guess.” Johnston suggested the selectmen appoint a selection consultant for a town manager. Drafts of requests for qualifications and requests for committee to narrow down the applicants for the Board of proposals for an executive search consultant have been Selectmen to interview once the search firm gathers the redrawn, Town Attorney Dwight Johnston said, and once a sponses. The selectmen agreed their next step in the process final draft is complete the selection process can continue. is to determine the composition of the committee. Also at the meeting, the selectmen appropriated just Once a search consultant is selected, “you could reasonably expect responses from your search firm within three to four over $104,000 from the Local Capital Improvement Plan grant fund for reconstruction of the road bed on New Lane, weeks,” he added. Last year residents voted to move from a selectmen to which will include new culvert and drainage structures, a council government with a town manager replacing a first curbing, sidewalks and driveways. The selectmen awarded selectman. The new system will be effective Nov. 6, 2013, the project to Quality Associates, who had the lowest bid at $1,308,951. after electing a six-member council.

poor paving job,” he said. “We’re giving these people a lot of work in this town.” Waters’ comments came after Police Chief Anthony Salvatore said the Quality Associates contractor had left a work site in “a condition that was not desirable from a safety standpoint” the previous weekend. Town crews put up road signs and paint. Salvatore said Public Works Director Eric Hood agreed the contractor should be billed for the town crews coming out to the site. “As far as I’m concerned, the matter therefore is resolved,” Salvatore said. “Going forward the contractor certainly understands that this is not acceptable.” Before the selectmen awarded the contract for New Lane, Waters suggested Quality Associates be put on notice upon awarding of the contract. However, Selectman Richard Newton said the town could not legally make that a condition of the contract. “Quality has been the low bidder on quite a bit of projects and, really, they’ve done an outstanding job,” Hood said. “I think some of the issues they’ve had are minimal to say the least and their final projects have been nothing less than favorable.” The selectmen also voted to permit the police department to apply for a DUI law enforcement grant for $45,159.06 to fund personnel services for the 2013 fiscal year. The next Board of Selectmen meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7:10 p.m. at Town Hall.

trols will be sent to the area, Police Chief Anthony Salvatore said at the Wednesday, Oct. 10, Police Commission meeting. “Over the weekend at Cromwell Hills and Fox Meadows we had a number of vehicles that were vandalized; 14 to be exact,” Salvatore said, adding some of the vehicles were unlocked and one resident reported their windows were broken. “We’re continuing our investigation; we do have some leads,” he said. A police vehicle will have to be replaced with $32,000 from the capital non-recurring fund, Salvatore also said at the meeting. “One of our officers on duty Sept. 29 was involved in an accident [near routes 217 and 372]. It was the offi-

cer’s fault; it was investigated and appropriate discipline was instated,” he said. The police department will receive $8,200 for the vehicle, leaving the rest to be supplemented by the town. Salvatore gave an update on the new police communications system, which passed at a Town Meeting Thursday, Oct. 4. The radio system will be in place within three to four months. “We’re looking at sometime within the area of February or March that we’re fully operational,” Salvatore said. Salvatore also announced the retirement of Police Captain Edwin Kosinski, effective Nov. 30. “We wish him well on his future endeavors as a result of this,” he said. Selectman Enzo Faienza added he was happy for Kosinski but not happy for Cromwell. “You can always call Cromwell your home,” he said.

by Katelyn Kelleher The Learning Experience in Cromwell collected donations last week for Komen Connecticut, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Both parents and staff donated to the cause. On Friday, staff and children wore pink. “People were really supportive of it,” said The Learning Experience Director Jennifer Scanlon. “All the moms with the boys were like, ‘I have to go find something pink!’”

Though this was the first year the day care center raised money for breast cancer research, since it opened nearly three years ago staff and children, who range in age from six weeks to six years, have hosted a hop-a-thon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and have put on several food drives for the Cromwell Food Pantry. “Sometimes we’ll do classroom competitions for who can collect the most and during the circle time the kids will explain what they donated,” Scanlon said.

10/6: Matthew Berggren, 23, of 917 Brooks Rd., Middletown, was transported to Hartford Hospital following a car accident on Nooks Hill Road at 1:49 a.m. A Hartford Hospital spokesperson said Berggren has since been treated and released, police said.

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.

Divorce Mediation: Attorney Joseph J. Shainess has expanded his Practice to include Divorce Mediation. This requires that the Husband and Wife commit themselves to reach an agreement through negotiations with a mediator. The parties do much better with this process and also may save Thousands of Dollars, which would be the cost of a fully contested trial. Fees for mediation generally run between $1,600 and $2,500, which include multiple sessions with the attorney drafting, the divorce agreement and all other necessary documents. The attorney would also appear on the final court date. The initial half hour consultation is at no charge. Joseph J. Shainess, Attorney & Counselor At BED: All new platform bed frame: $200.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month as well as Pitbull Awareness Month so if you’ve been thinking of adding a new member to your family this is a great time to do it. Connecticut is also having its 6th Annual Pit Bull Awareness Day on Saturday, October 20th which is geared towards dispelling myths about the breed and responsible ownership. Pet overpopulation in the United States is a big concern. Supporting your local animal shelter by helping a dog in need this month not only makes you a hero for 2 dogs – the one you rescued and the one who takes his or her place – but also opens you up to a wealth of happiness and better health. But let’s face it not everyone can adopt a dog so here is a list of some things you can do this month to help our shelter dogs: Donate your Facebook status with something like “October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month” or “Shelter Dogs Rock” and post a link to your local animal shelter or petfinder.com Been wanting to get rid of those old towels or sheets? Have a pile of newspapers waiting for recycling? Call your local animal shelter and see if they have a donation wish list which may include those items just mentioned. Sign up as a foster parent or shelter volunteer and be sure to tell your friends how wonderful it is. Add a petfinder widget or banner to your website or blog. Contact your local shelter or animal control and offer to take pictures of adoptable pets and upload them to your Facebook page, website, or blog There are so many things we can do to help our furry friends year round but why not start this month and spread the word? Dr. Monica Dijanic Medical Director, Beaver Brook Animal Hospital

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

Traffic Flow a Concern in High School Renovation by Mark DiPaola Construction for a Wethersfield High School renovation project that includes the addition of three buildings and over 100 parking spaces is slated for the summer of next year, Preconstruction Manager Lorel Purcell told residents and elected officials at Monday night’s Town Council meeting. Construction of a new gymnasium, media center/ library, and music building is expected to begin in August 2013, with on-site work to improve parking lot traffic circulation and drilling of geothermal wells--part of the project’s geothermal energy component--starting a month before. The project will be reviewed by the state for approval in March, Pur-

cell said. “That means the design has to be done by then, for them to do their review process,” Purcell said. The project is currently estimated to cost $74.82 million, although Purcell said he expects that to change after the design development phase, with an estimated state reimbursement of $30.21 million, bringing Wethersfield’s bill to $44.61 million, according to documents posted on the Wethersfield Public Schools website. A tentative plan that was presented to the town at the pre-referendum stage included an increase in parking spaces from the current 410 to 535. An updated presentation given at Monday night’s meeting drew out proposed revisions

that would bump the total number of parking spaces at Wethersfield High School to 550, with emphasis on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance regarding field accessibility. Managing traffic flow, particularly at drop off and pick up times, was another consideration when drawing up the plan, said Rusty Malik, a member of the project’s architectural design team. Travel within the Wethersfield High parking lot could be a lot smoother if buses followed an exclusive route off of Jay Street to a designated drop off area, Malik said. There are also plans to establish a “que” system, in which parents wait in an area containing an estimated 40 or more spots to pull up to to drop off or

pick up students. The project team is still conducting traffic surveys in order to get an exact number of how many cars travel through Wethersfield High’s parking lots at peak hours, Malik said. Separating traffic from parking spaces, particularly along the driveway coming off of Wolcott Hill Road, will also speed things up, he said. “Currently as you drive through there, there are cars that can back into the driveway,” Malik said. “In this particular case, the parking lot will be isolated from the traffic.” Wethersfield resident John Miller expressed concern regarding plans to open up the north side of the school for student parking. Moving student parking to the north end will be costly

and still create congestion when after school traffic and the flow of spectators to sporting events occur simultaneously, Miller said. He suggested expanding a gravel parking lot near the Wintergreen Woods at Foley Brook Boulevard and Eagle Drive. “The north side of that school should stay the way it is,” Miller said. “We should be trying to keep the north side of the school open, not trying to get everybody parked over there. We’re spending a hell of a lot of money creating a problem.” A 40-minute Power Point presentation, which included 3-D images of the proposed additions, outlined plans for the school’s new buildings. The library/ media center addition will be equipped with projection screens and will have space

to accommodate both independent study and instructional sessions. A “community room” will allow for small group instruction. “This used to be more media storage, and now that we’re moving away from the larger televisions and VCRs, and all that kind of old technology, that space can be better used, similar to what you have at the library, where you can kind of go in and various committees and organizations from around town can have meetings,” Malik said. Plans for a reading courtyard just outside the media center are also in the works. The project will also add a rooftop green house, or “green roof”. The use of solar panels is also being discussed, Malik said.

Pedestrian Killed on Wolcott Hill Road by Katelyn Kelleher A woman died from injuries sustained when she was struck by a car while crossing Wolcott Hill Road last Tuesday, Oct. 9. Police received a call at approximately 6:40 p.m. reporting a pedestrian was struck by a car crossing the road from Bliss Market, near the intersection of Wolcott Hill Road and Beverly Road. Josefa Mariposque, 72, of Wethersfield, was lying unconscious in the roadway with serious injuries when officers arrived, police said. She was treated at the scene then transported by ambulance to the hospital where she later died, police said. The Mid-State Accident Reconstruction Team is investigating the accident. Anyone that may have seen the accident or was in the area at the time is asked to call Officer Kenneth Newton at the Wethersfield Police Department, 860-721-2900.

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.

Terriers Volleyball Sweeps Hartford Public by Mark DiPaola With a home court advantage and a struggling Hartford Public High School opponent, the Rocky Hill Terriers volleyball team had the deck stacked in their favor and they drew aces--a lot of them.

Senior Kate Gibson serves the ball.

The Terriers (10-3-0) took all three games of their best-of-five matchup against Hartford Public, (1-11-0) riding the serving prowess of junior Krista Iacobucci and junior Emma Skultety. Most importantly, they proved that they could bounce back, following a defeat at E. O. Smith High School, where they lost the fifth game to seal a 3-2 defeat. “They did a good job tonight,” Terriers head coach Scott Ferguson said after the game. “We just played a tough match-a five-game loss against E. O. Smith. Rocky Hill took the final game, after trailing by as many as five points. “It’s hard to keep the energy up,” Ferguson said. “We looked a little flat tonight.” Skultety’s three aces inside of a 12-0 run lifted the Terriers from a 10-10 deadlock to a commanding The Terriers girls volleyball team took the first three games against Hartford Public fresh off of a defeat against E.O.

As Deputy Mayor, John cut costs and contained taxes for two consecutive terms. His opponent chaired a PAC for Wethersfield Democrats, funded by the very unions with whom they’d negotiated. Morin also receives income from state employee union CEIU, the CT affiliate of SEIU, whose contracts are negotiated by the very legislature to which he belongs. John will hold the line. He’ll work to make Connecticut taxpayer and business friendly. He’ll support job creation through reduced taxes; reduced government bureaucracy and less over-regulation.

Yankee Institute for Public Policy1 and Americans for Prosperity2 — two different, non-partisan government policy analysis groups, each give Morin a grade of “Zero” on taxpayer-friendly legislation. 101812
