It provides an opportunity for acknowledging pain and sadness, but also encourages those who attend to move from loss to hope. It is the desire of our Stephen Ministry to help bring comfort and hope to hurting hearts, so the “blue” will not be apparent in the holidays. Refreshments will be served after the service.

Diabetics have many health concerns. Among them is the need to pay greater attention to their feet. Because feet are a great distance from the heart, poor blood circulation and nerve impairment often cause diabetic feet to be at risk. A regular program of hygiene, common sense and periodic foot examinations by a podiatric physician can help keep diabetics on their feet and walking. Feet with poor circulation have a harder time fighting infection & healing injuries. Complications from even minor bruises can result in serious ulcerations or even amputation. Numbness, tingling, cold feet or a bluish discoloration are symptoms of circulatory problems. When nerves are impaired, injuries can occur without one’s knowledge, such as a burn from bath water that is too hot. A program of daily foot hygiene and regular inspection are essential to good foot health. Avoidance of activities which restrict circulation such as crossing one’s legs, wearing tight stockings or garters or exposing one’s feet to cold temperatures is important.Smoking tobacco must be avoided at all costs. To schedule an evaluation with one of the podiatric physicians at the Connecticut Foot Care Centers call the location most convenient for you. Remember to take care of your feet.

Two Building Commitee Members Added, One Resigns by Mark DiPaola The Newington Building Committee in charge of early planning for the Town Hall renovation project is about to get a little more crowded-the Town Council approved the addition of two Parks and Recreation members by a 5-4 vote at Tuesday night’s meeting, prompting the resignation of Building Committee member Jay Botallico. The Parks and Recreation members will have voting rights in matters related to location selection of the new Parks and Recreation building, the size of the new facility, and the relocation of onsite facilities. “They only want a say in what affects them,” Councilor Scott McBride said. “What we tried to do was go over the project and find three things that will affect them and let them have a say in that.” There’s a fourth part, however. The conditions of their participation also include voting rights on any matters on which “other assistance is required.” “We do understand that the project is big, and something may come up that we need their input on,” McBride

said. Botallico had said in a phone conversation a week before the meeting that he would resign if the addition of the Parks and Recreation members to the committee was approved, and he was true to his word, citing the presence of the Parks and Rec Superintendent Bruce Till at renovation planning meetings as reason why the move was unnecessary. “[Till is] more informed than any [Parks and Recreation] board member would be, because he knows all the programs,” Botallico said Friday. “If he can’t tell us what they need, how can they?” The Building Committee has been in the process of deciding how to go about relocating the Parks and Recreation Department side of Town Hall to its own building. How this step is handled will likely set the tone for the entire project, McBride said a few weeks before Tuesday’s meeting. “I don’t think the Parks and Rec Commission is asking for anything out of line,” said Councilor Beth Delbuono. “It’s more of an equity concern for me.” The concern amongst some council members was that

the Parks and Recreation Department would be seen as having more of a say in the matter than other town departments that may also be affected throughout the course of the project. “I realize the unique position Parks and Rec has in Town Hall, but it’s already getting out to other groups that they don’t have the same privileges,” Councilor David Nagel said. Councilor Maureen Klett agreed. “I’m concerned that your committee is going to make a lot of decisions that affect a lot of people, so why are you singling out just Parks and Rec?” she said. All town departments will have a say, it is just a timing issue right now, said Town Manager John Salomone. The current stage of the project requires immediate input from Parks and Rec, he said. “You’ve got to make those decisions by other decisions, so if you’re going to have input from the Parks and Rec Department, this is the point to do it,” Salomone said.

Parents Ask Board of Education to Reconsider Busing Policy by Mark DiPaola As Newington begins bracing itself for the controversial Hartford Bus Way, a different busing issue has been raised in town. The Board of Education is being asked to reconsider a transportation policy--which parents say expects students to walk unreasonable distances on routes that are not always safe--that only allows students living outside of a designated radius of their respective schools to utilize busing services. “Distance is a factor, like in bad weather, but safety seems to be the biggest concern,” board member David Tatem said. Not every grade level walks the same distance--the older a student is, the larger the no busing radius. Elementary school students, for example, are not allowed bus services if they live within a quarter mile radius of their respective school, while middle school students within a 1.25 mile radius have to walk. In high school, the radius is 1.75 miles. A group of three parents attended the Board of Education meeting last Wednesday, Nov. 14, taking the opportunity to voice their concerns during the public comment segment. The walking distance some students face can be difficult given the fact that they have to carry backpacks, and in some cases, musical instruments, said parent Michele Colagiovannia. “Ask yourself if you’d want to take that walk,” Colagiovannia told the board. “Ask yourself if you’d want to take that walk to work every day.” More importantly, not every route is particularly safe, Colagiovannia said. The policy has students walking through traffic-heavy areas, some of which do not have enough sidewalks, she said. Willard Avenue is a street of particular concern, Tatem said. “She’s got a point; people are going fast,” he said. “People are on their phones.” The policy may present a challenge to fifth-graders, who are in middle school, said Superintendent of Schools

Parents and Board of Education memberes expressed concern over students walking to school along busy streets, particularly Willard Avenue, shown here. Image: Google.

William Collins. “I think our fifth grade parents struggle because their kids are nine,” Collins said. The board will leave it up to the Student Policy Committee to review the transportation system, Collins said. The district should consider using more crossing guards and make sure that there are plenty of sidewalks along the routes students take to school, said parent Mary Martin O’Brien. The board would have to ask the Newington Police Department, which provides the district with crossing guards, for that, Tatem said. The board has taken safety measures in areas where traffic poses a greater risk to students. The neighborhood made up by Broadview Street,

Art Exhibit at Newington Library Throughout December, West Hartford resident Debra Morse will be displaying her multi-media art work in the Community Room of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library in Newington. On Saturday, Dec. 8, Morse will host an artist’s reception from 1 – 3 p.m. to which the public is invited. Refreshments will be served. Though Morse has no formal training in painting, she was in a two-year graphic design program at Tunxis Community College. Though she decided not to pursue graphic design, she has continued to paint and pursue art for her own pleasure. She credits her interest in art to her high school art teacher, who, she said, “WAS art: the way she dressed, the things she loved and taught, and the movies we saw.” Morse went on to pursue batik, creative writing

and watercolor. Morse works mainly in acrylics, found art and art with an American Indian feeling. Her work has been displayed in many solo shows--including one at Trinity College --and was chosen for a juried show at Wesleyan University. She said of her process: “Sometimes when I paint, my hand feels guided; I am the vehicle, but higher powers are painting the pieces. “I paint emotions, energy, feelings—and try to invite the viewer in,” she said. The exhibit may be viewed during regular library hours when the Community Room is not being used for a scheduled program. Viewers are invited to call in advance of their visits to ensure that the room is available for viewing. Event is free and open to the public. 860-665-8700.

Pheasant Run, Hill Side Ave., and Bayberry gets busing due to the fact that students traveling along that route have to cross Willard Ave. twice due to a lack of sidewalks in that area, Collins said. “The board policy does consider sidewalks,” Collins said. “Parents will say, ‘Well, there’s a kid being picked up on the other side of the street, why isn’t my kid being bused?’ Because there’s a sidewalk.” It is unlikely that the board will consider shrinking the radius within which students cannot utilize busing because it would cost too much, Collins said, reflecting on the district’s last adjustment, which was made in 2008. “The last time we changed the policy, it cost $500,000,” he said. “It’s about a half a million dollars for every quarter of a mile you change.”

Turkey and a Thirty Food Drive Fights Holiday Hunger by Mark DiPaola At around 4 p.m. Saturday cars delivering food donations were still rolling through the Wethersfield Volunteer Ambulance Crew headquarters on Prospect Street. The 10 to 12 volunteers, who were winding down the last two hours of a long day that started at 10 a.m. didn’t waste a moment greeting the donation deliverers, who drove through the station’s garage, handed off an item, and exited without even having to get out of their car. In fact, the donations started coming in before the fifth annual Food Share “Turkey and a Thirty” campaign against hunger, a two-day food and monetary donation drive that ran Saturday and Sunday, was officially set to begin. “Just about 10 of 10 this morning, we had 10 turkeys,” said Wethersfield Volunteer Ambulance Chief Phil Lombardo. Not a bad start, but they had a long way to go--the campaign typically collects between 400 and 500 turkeys per year. Lombardo admitted that they were a little bit behind as they approached the end of the first day and the halfway point of the food drive. “We’re looking for 250 turkeys today,” he said. “And we’re just under 200.” Three large containers overflowing

with canned goods, snacks, and other food donations sat off to the side. Lombardo looked through the pile while other volunteers made small talk, drank coffee, and tried to stay warm. Two high school student volunteers danced and waved their arms in front of a giant inflated turkey at the station’s entrance in an effort to draw attention to the food drive. A lot of work was crammed into two days, but what few people outside of the campaign saw was the amount of legwork that goes into planning it. In past years, volunteer crews have met with Food Share to establish locations as early as the end of August, although this year they did not discuss it until October, Lombardo said. A second meeting is held so that “Food Share teams” can collaborate with each other. “We brainstorm ideas of what works at our drives, what works at theirs,” Lombardo said. “We try to incorporate them all to make the drives as successful as possible.” A successful drive, by their definition, includes not only the food donations, but fund raising as well. Food Share and its volunteers expect to bring in between $3,000 and $5,000 over the course of the weekend. “Any money we collect that Food Share can use, it will help them keep their shelves stacked,” said Kim Lombardo, Phil Lom-

bardo’s wife. “We’re just the type of people who like to help people.” “When the holiday ends, the need doesn’t end,” her husband added. For Mary Horner, a Food Share veteran--she volunteers every week and has been working with the organization for 10 years--the day’s efforts are

business as usual. She was accompanied by two other volunteers, Jane Murphy and Judi Hunter. “I think we have so much that people lose sight of that,” Murphy said. What’s important not to lose sight of important it is to give back, Hunter added. “And it’s really easy,” she said.

High School Parking Lot Redesign Tweaked for Better Flow by Mark DiPaola The $75 million Wethersfield High School expansion and renovation project is through its design development phase, during which slight parking lot configuration adjustments were made, engineers told the Wethersfield Board of Education last Tuesday, Nov. 13. The eastward relocation of the tennis courts will be moved “back a little,” Malik said. The tennis courts were going to be moved in order to accommodate expanded parking at the north of the school. The redesigned parking lot is 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, November 26, 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:

expected to have handicapped accessible parking at all areas of the site, with 220 spaces, up from the current 34, adjacent to the playing fields, Malik said. “That means someone in a wheel chair will be able to easily access all portions of the school,” he said. To contend with morning and afternoon traffic gridlock, plans are in place for parents and students to enter from Wolcott Hill Road, after which students will proceed to their parking area, while parents “queue up” for drop-off or pick-up. “The concern we had was the conflict between the parents picking up and dropping off at the student entrance and also students walking from their cars into the school,” Malik said. Parents will follow a loop

route around the east side of the school and exit toward Folly Brook or Wolcott Hill Road, he said. Teachers have been assigned the entrance coming off of Jay Street, which they will share with the bus route. “What this does is limit the number of vehicles coming off Wolcott Hill,” Malik said. The development team will seek approval from the Board of Education in March, which, if successful, will send them to review at the state level, Laurel Pruscell said. The project goes up for bid in May, with construction beginning with the building additions-a new gymnasium, music room and library/media center--in July. Renovations in existing buildings will prompt the use of the gym for temporary class-

rooms, Pruscell said. “That’s going to provide us with the space we need to empty the parts of the renovated buildings and build on that,” she said. Highlights of the project, from the inside, include a renovated auditorium with seating designed to create the best view of the stage based on where one sits and a balcony area with 185-195 seats. There will be 610-615 additional seats at the lower level, with elevator access to the balcony. The academic wing will include a solar panel-equipped green roof that will be accessible to students, Malik said. “Students will be able to come out and look at the panel up close and maintain the green roof,” Malik said. The development team is looking to garner Leadership in

Rocky Hill & Cromwell? With Westlake

Church Celebrates its Permanent Location by Katelyn Kelleher Though services have been held for a few weeks, Oasis of Life Christian Church in Rocky Hill celebrated the opening of its first permanent location Sunday. Pastor Jack Chamis began the church a year and a half ago with about a dozen members, operating out of space on the Silas Deane Highway. Since then, that number has grown and following service Sunday, members stuck around for the grand opening celebration of its new location at 945 Cromwell Ave., in the Cold Spring Plaza. Formerly a teacher at Griswold Middle School, Chamis attended school at night to become an ordained pastor. Before Oasis of Life, he served at a church in Southington. After Sunday’s service, attendees had to opportunity to meet Chamis, his family and the leadership team of Oasis of Life, have lunch and watch a performance by the Christian Academy of Dance.

The dancers performed Ahavah, which means “love” in Hebrew. The academy has been performing the Christmas ballet for seven years, with performers of a wide age range, and David Chittenden has participated in all of them. “There are probably a hundred of us,” he said, between performers and stage crew.

Brook Street 35-Lot Subdivision Approved by Katelyn Kelleher The Rocky Hill Planning and Zoning Commission approved last Wednesday, Dec. 14, a proposed 35-lot subdivision on Brook Street. A continued public hearing preceded the agenda item, which the commission unanimously approved Wednesday. Construction is set to begin next spring on the Ollari Farm Estates Subdivision. R.J. Development, LLC proposed the 27-acre single family residential subdivision, which will be located on property on the north side of Brook Street and requested waivers for sidewalks on one side of the street, minimum centerline curve radius and centerline grades. Homes are expected to sell for around $600,000, the developer said, and the subdivision will take three to four years to finish.

Town ordinance requires all owners or occupants of property adjoining any sidewalks shall clear same of snow and/or ice within 24 hours after the cessation of a storm. In addition, please note that residents must clean the entire width of the sidewalks to allow for passage by persons with disabilities. Clearing snow and/or ice from walks is important and something we cannot avoid living in the northeast. It is important that each owner or occupant take the responsibility and clean their sidewalks, to include the walks leading to their residence, as soon as possible so emergency personnel, such as police, fire and E.M.S., will have have access. Police will respond to complaints of uncleared sidewalks, at which time violators may receive a $50 fine for each day snow or ice is not removed, in addition to a bill for clearing said walks, if so ordered by the police department. It is also unlawful by town ordinance for persons to plow, throw or put any snow or ice upon any public highway of the town. Violations for placing snow or ice onto a public highway in town is $90.

Business Spotlight Critter Sitters, LLC Your Pet Will Hardly Know You’re Gone by Katelyn Kelleher Whether away at work all day or for a weeklong vacation, no pet owner likes to be separated from their companion. Newington-based Critter Sitters, LLC is happy to step in and alleviate the worry. When Susan Osborne started the pet sitting business four and a half years ago, after many years in the pet industry producing trade shows, business immediately took off, despite a shaky economy. Within six months Osborne actually had to turn away business, so her husband, Tim Reed, stepped in. “This is not a kennel--it’s strictly pet sitting where we go to your home and take care of your pet in your home,” Reed said. Though there are great kennels, he added, Critter Sitters is a way to keep pets where they are most comfortable while their owners are away--at home. “Greyhounds, for example, they typically don’t do well in kennels no matter how great they are because they think you’re leaving them at the track and they just get freaked out,” Reed said. True pet lovers, Osborne and Reed have three large greyhounds of their own, Cody, Finnegan and King. “They get to hang out in their own house, they get to sleep in their own bed, they get to eat their own food out of their own bowl, they get to go in their own backyard and play,” he said. “It’s a lot calmer of a situation for everyone.” Osborne and Reed, along with their other two pet sitters, Kelly and Laura, meet

with pet owners beforehand to gather information and conduct an interview with the pet. “The purpose of having the interview with the dog is to be accepted into the environment as the pack leader,” Reed said. “Then the next step beyond that is we have to secure a key, we have to learn how to secure their home if there’s a security system; we ask a series of questions from a questionnaire, we provide them with our references and insurance and bonding information.” Their goal is to mimic the pet’s everyday schedule as best they can, whether it’s a walk at a certain time, playing, feeding or administering medication. “Usually if it’s a mid-day for a working client it’s just a turnout or a walk. If it’s a vacation situation it can be as many as three or four times a day for dogs; if it’s a cat we’ll see them anywhere from one to three times a day, depending if they’re on medications,” Osborne said. It’s a lot of running around, but hardly seems like work for animal lovers Reed and Osborne. “How great is this job, where you can sit there and walk a puppy and play with it?” Osborne said. And for vacationing pet owners, collecting mail, taking out the trash and recyclables and picking up newspapers are all part of Critter Sitters’ service as well. “It’s all in an effort to give the illusion that there’s somebody home,” Osborne said, adding their staff doesn’t wear uniforms

identifying them as pet sitters nor do their vehicles display it. “To some people that might make us look more professional, but in our opinion it would be a red flag. When we have the key to somebody’s home we take that very seriously. In addition to taking care of the animals, this is somebody’s home.” Osborne and Reed said a common misconception is that their services are only for higher-end clients. “At the end of the day, it’s people like us,” Reed said. “We structured the business so that it had two very simple fees: the fees are per visit and then we also offer overnight services, which encompass the multitude of visits in the body of the overnight, because we don’t charge for administering [medications] or playtime or walks or any of the

other ridiculous fees.” Understanding that many pet owners have multiple animals, there is no pay per animal fee, either. “It’s not terribly fair to make them pay us multiple amounts of money,” Reed said. The service is a small price to pay for the peace of mind for pet owners--and their pets-- while they’re away. “The best compliment when people come home is they say things like, ‘Well, they weren’t really that excited to see us,’” Osborne said. “It’s not the kind of frantic ‘get me out of here’ situation you might have at a kennel,” Reed added.

TAKE PRECAUTIONS (More than one third of all home fire deaths and almost one-fifth of injuries start with cigarettes.) Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Be sure ashes are cool before disposal. Most cigarette fires start when a hot cigarette drops onto upholstery, bedding carpeting or clothing. So never smoke in bed or anywhere that may tempt you to sleep. Install extra smoke detectors in smokers’ bedrooms and other areas they spend time in. And remember, if you smoke while intoxicated, you may never wake up! NATIONWIDE, smoking costs the United States an estimated $65 billion dollars every year in both healthcare costs and lost productivity!

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.

For some, it has been a difficult year and the holidays—traditionally a time of celebration–can magnify a tragedy or loss. We’ve found that remembering a loved one with a special tribute or a memorial service often helps families work through difficult times. If you have lost a loved one, please join us for our holiday program and we’ll take a moment to remember and celebrate that life...together.

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.

Speaker: Karen Carney, RN, LCSW, FT Location: William J.Pitkin Community Center 30 Greenfield St. Wethersfield

In truth, pistachios needed some dressing up because, compared to other kinds of nuts, they were quite ugly.

Information sessions will be followed by light refreshments

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.

Top 10 dream home features If you were given a chance to design a dream home, what features would you choose first? Take a look at the most popular wish list in 2012 from Nudura, a leading firm in building technology: 1. Curb appeal. Home exterior, driveway, and landscaping must attract admiring attention. 2. Concrete and natural stone, rather than wood framing and brick.

SHOULD I DEED MY HOUSE TO THE KIDS? We are asked this question often. It’s a significant concern when preserving our lifestyles and assets are both very much on all of our minds. And the simple answer is: maybe.

Peterson’s departure leaves a hole that Wethersfield hopes will be filled by Domingo Rodriguez and Tyler Godlewski, two underclassman that, for freshman, saw a decent amount of playing time last season in a system that split time evenly between the three goaltenders. Eagles Head Coach Dennis Tulmieri is not sure if any one of his remaining goalies will emerge as a designated starter. “If one of them just comes up and gets a shutout, stay with that guy,” Tulmieri said. “We really won’t know til we get ‘em on the ice.” The Eagles will look to im-

prove on last year’s 2-3-1 league record without the leadership of Brett Fortin and Matt Lis, last year’s captains. The two defensemen added a scoring touch--Lis led the team in scoring with 11 goals and seven assists last year and Fortin added five goals and eight assists on the season. “They were huge,” Tulmieri said. “They were very important to us; we’ll miss ‘em.” The absence of last season’s veteran defensemen will place more responsibility on the shoulders of Trevor Nyren and Matt Carcia, underclassmen who have already made their presence felt. A freshman last year, Carcia had two goals and four assists, and Nyren has been known to double as a defenseman and a forward. The Eagles will also lose some size, with the loss of George Stevens, the 6’3”, 201-pound forward who tallied nine goals and seven assists last season.

This year’s Wethersfield team will be led by three seniors, including forward Patrick Dowd, a playmaker who led the Eagles in assists last year with 18. The Eagles will also look for leadership from senior forwards Joe Accarpio and Nick Laurito. “You always rely on your seniors, and those three guys are going to have to carry a lot of weight for us,” Tulmieri said. The seniors should have plenty of help from a roster of underclassmen throughout which offensive contributions were spread pretty evenly last year. Notable returnees include sophomore forward Noah Thulen, who tallied five goals and two assists last season. They will be looking to junior Billy Connor to continue where he left off last year--the forward scored four goals and had 10 assists on the season. The Eagles, who have sat near the bottom of Connecticut Central

East’s standings for the past couple of years, may have a chance to climb the ladder now that powerhouse Windsor/Farmington/Avon High School saw the departure of a senior class that led it to 6-1-1 record last season. The Warriors will be without captains Dominic Bazzano, Max Leopold and Nick Berns. They also have a big void to fill out goaltending now that they have lost net minder Kyle Krajick, who posted a 2.2 GAA last year, to graduation. The Eagles open their season on home ice against Northwest Catholic Jan. 5. The Indians fin-

ished second in the CCE standings, at 4-2-0. The two teams split the season series last year, with The Eagles grabbing a 5-2 win at ewington arena in the first matchup, before getting blown out 5-0 in their second meeting. When it comes to playing teams like Northwest Catholic, solid team defense is key, Tulmieri said. “Block a lot of shots, get the puck out, [and] don’t allow a lot of sustained pressure on the net,” he said.

Wethersfield Swimmers Earn All-State Honors by Katelyn Kelleher Despite taking home honors with a third-place finished at the Class M State Tournament last Tuesday, Nov. 13, the Wethersfield High School girls swim team had hoped for first. At the State Open Saturday, however, Wethersfield placed 12th of 52 teams. The state meet had several highlights with individual performances. Senior captain Kristy Tougas set a school record and took second place in the 200 freestyle and won the 100 butterfly for the second straight year, an event Wethersfield swept thanks to sophomores Caroline Even and Jaime Lacus taking second and third, respectively. Tougas, Even, Lacus and Lauren Kelly won the 200 freestyle relay and broke another school record. The four also broke a school record with a second-place finish in the 400

freestyle relay. Earlier in the season, coach Lee Schwartzmann said the team placed third in both relays last year. This year’s top two finishes earned all-state honors. Also earning CIAC honors for top six finishes were Lacus in the 200 Individual medley and Sara Bradley in the 100 breaststroke. Branford, the school to beat, Schwartzmann said, was the top finishing team at the Class M Tournament. At the open, Tougas placed seventh in the 200 freestyle and fifth in the 100 butterfly, Even 22nd in the 50 freestyle and 11th in the 100 butterfly and Lucas 21st in the 100 butterfly. The 200 and 400 freestyle relays of Tougas, Even, Kelly and Lacus both placed in the top 10, in seventh and eighth place, respectively.

Panthers Football Will Take on Coginchaug Thanksgiving Day by Mark DiPaola The Cromwell High School football team will look to close out a 7-2 season with a Thanksgiving win on the road. The Panthers will head to Durham on Thursday to face a struggling Coginchaug Regional High School (3-6) that is looking to halt a 5-game slide and avenge a blowout 41-15 loss to Morgan. Cromwell, on the other hand, is riding a two-game winning streak. They escaped two nail biters-a 15-14 victory at Old Saybrook-Westbrook High School, and then 20-17 contest at Valley Regional/Old Lyme High School. The matchup will mark the last regular season game in the careers of sixteen Panther seniors, including starting quarterback Alex Ramirez. Ramirez has 628 passing yards, 8 touchdowns, and only two interceptions on the season, according to MaxPreps.com. Derrick Villard, the Panthers’ workhorse in the ground game, will also don Cromwell colors for his last ever regular season game. The senior running back has 979 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns this year. He is averaging 195.8 rushing yards per game, according to MaxPreps.com. Wide out Ryan Jarzavek, who leads the team in reception yards with 257, is finishing out his Cromwell football career as well. He had 4 touchdowns on the year. Cromwell currently sits at third place in the Pequot-Sassacus standings, behind undefeated Hyde Leadership and North Branford. The Panthers football team, shown here earlier in the season, will go up against a struggling Coginchaug Regional High School at the Thanksgiving Day away game.
