House of Heroes yields gratitude in Plainville

Wings & Wheels

For years, Tom Catucci, the lifelong Plainville resident and owner of Plainville Radio and TV Repair on Whiting Street, who passed away last May at the age of 87, was known for giving, not receiving. He served in World War II in the South Pacific; he gave to customers needing a TV or small appliance fixed, even if

they couldn’t afford to pay for it; and he spent years giving back to the Plainville community and his church, Our Lady of Mercy. On May 25, despite the raw temperatures and cold drizzle, dozens of volunteers from the Plainville Knights

Plainville group reaches out for Newtown fundraiser By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

Dziura said she contacted Rohner through e-mail to see if he would be open to the idea of people selling pins on his behalf. The reception from the teens in the group about selling the pins, she said, was a warm one. “Part of our faith calls us to help others and I think that was part of that Christian aspect of it,” Dziura said. “When people are in need that we can help, we do that.” Rohner said he was glad to

An opportunity to help – that’s what Sue Dziura saw when she read a newspaper article about David Rohner’s initiative to sell pins honoring first responders of Newtown for sick time and counseling needed for those who were left to deal with the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December. Rohner, a Coventry native, began selling the pins in January. Dziura, a co-leader for the JOLT youth group at Our Lady of Mercy Church, 94 Broad St., offered to sell the pins after masses on Saturdays, June 22 and 29 at 5 p.m. and Sundays, June 23 and 30 at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. for a cost each.

have the group reach out to him and was impressed with their interest. “They’re not personally gaining any money out of this,” Rohner said. “They’re just kind of doing this out of the good of their hearts to help the Newtown first responders, so I was pretty impressed by that and definitely happy to work with the organization.” Rohner, 19, is a junior at Central Connecticut State University and works as a security guard at West Farms Mall. He said originally the pins were going to be made for a small fundraiser that would go to the families, but once he began hearing “horror stories” of what the first responders had to go

Seconds later, on-camera, the canine is discovered crawling out from under the household remains: scared, wobbly, but alive and able to walk. It takes a perfect storm of meteorological events to create a tornado like the one of May 20, which the National Weather Service rated EF5, the maximum possible. Recent years have seen a noteworthy number of freakish atmospheric conditions. Last year, Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast as the largest Atlantic hurricane on record (topping 2010’s Igor). A series of unusually bad droughts have hindered the American heartland. Connecticut suffered significant setbacks during a recent pattern of inclement weather, including Winter Storm Alfred, Tropical Storm Irene and the 2013 blizzard. One wonders, then, whether atmospheric changes worldwide could be factors behind this recent rise in atypical weather. The global climate is a complex, fragile, interconnected system. Developments on one continent can affect meteorological environments within the hemisphere on the Earth’s opposite side. If

recent destructive weather, our top scientific minds should pursue it. Better understanding of what causes extreme atmospheric events like the May 20 tornado could help prevent further loss of homes and lives as in Oklahoma.

manmade emissions in densely populated countries are causing hotter conditions in Arctic regions, the shift could be enough to supercharge natural elements which produce droughts and storms. Either way, this possibility is worth further research. If some sort of mitigation method exists for reducing negative effects displayed by


Our thoughts and condolences go out to those in Oklahoma City affected by May’s historically massive tornado. The 1.3-milewide column of violently rotating winds, reaching over 200 mph, flattened neighborhoods and took two dozen lives in its 17-mile path. Pictures of the aftermath have been shocking. Suburban streets lined with cluttered remains of what once were rows of houses. Bloodied survivors emerging from the sudden wreckage. As with many tragedies, there too have been uplifting, human elements of heroism and perseverance. At Plaza Towers Elementary School, where the twister

would kill at least nine children, split-second decisions by educators undoubtedly saved lives of many more youths as the structure disintegrated. Quick-thinking instructors reportedly herded pupils out of hallways — dangerous in tornados due to glass windows — and into safer closets and bathrooms. These teachers warrant the highest commendation. Emergency responders and survivors teamed up and pulled trapped individuals from ruins. A video gone viral also depicts how from devastation can emerge hope. During an interview with a TV news crew, an elderly woman, whose house lay leveled behind her, mournfully said her beloved dog was buried beneath the knotted wood and metal.

Plainville High School wood shop instructor Mark Chase, left, and student Andrew Quealy work on window installations as part of the House of Heroes home repair project at the home of Juliet Catucci, the widow of World War II veteran and long-time Plainville Radio and TV Repair Shop owner Tom Catucci.

Gratitude Continued from page 1 of Columbus, Our Lady of Mercy Church, Plainville High School, and skilled craftsmen came together at the Catucci residence on Ciccio Court to install new windows, do yard work, and perform a host of additional home repair tasks. The effort came through House of Heroes Connecticut, an organization dedicated to honoring the service of veterans. “It’s only one day, but we do our best to make a difference in a day,” said Bill May, a 23year Army vet and former Blackhawk pilot who founded the Connecticut chapter of the Georgia-based non-profit last year along with his partner, Steve Cavanaugh of Biltmore Construction, Hamden. “It’s the least we can do to honor these great Americans, who sacrificed a portion of their lives, be it in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq or elsewhere, so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have today as Americans.” Catucci was a Navy man, spending two and a half years in New Guinea, Borneo and the Admiral Islands during WWII. He was an airplane mechanic, achieving the rank of Aviation Machinist’s Mate Second Class.

In 1945, Catucci returned home to marry his wife, Juliet, who recalled a young man who came into the shop years ago who had just spent a spell in prison. The man hoped Tom could fix his TV for his young children – despite not being able to pay for it all at the time of service. “The man asked Tom if he would trust him, and Tom says, ‘sure, pay whatever you can,’” Juliet said. “And you know what? That man came into the shop every week, same day, and paid $2 a week until the job was paid off – that’s the kind of man Tom was.” “I don’t know where to begin, he was just the best father,” his daughter, Donna, said. “He was a very giving person.” As workers dodged raindrops and expertly installed new windows, Juliet stayed bundled in a warm blanket in her living room, astonished by the beehive of activity in her normally quiet home. Well-wishers stopped by constantly as Plainville High School woodshop instructor Mark Chase and a crew of students operated saws; J. Timothy’s delivered sandwiches for the work crew; Deacon Bob Berube of Our Lady of Mercy Church and the Plainville Veterans Council mingled with Town Coun-

Safer place

To the editor: Thank you Mr. Lee, Mr. Bosse and others for making Bohemia Street in Plainville a safer place for our children by placing new signage on our street and West Main Street corner. We hope that this will reduce the number of vehicles that still think they can access Route 72 from here. Roberta Lalama Plainville

Balloon festival

To the editor: Now that Memorial Day has passed, it’s unofficially summer in the suburbs. In Plainville, the highlight of each year is the Plainville Fire Company’s Hot Air Balloon Festival, which is held annually during the last weekend of August. E-mail inquiries are flooding the PFC inbox; calls are coming in from all over New England regarding the event. The main committee is made up of volunteers from the Plainville Fire Company and their families, and these incredibly dedicated people are working unimaginably hard at coordinating balloonists, reviewing crafter applications, booking entertainment,

designing Tshirts, working with purveyors of food, and countless other details and tasks with which festival-goers are blissfully unaware. Our downtown area is beautifully decorated with banners of hot air balloons; people from all around the country know that Plainville is synonymous with ‘Hot Air Balloon Festival’. It’s an amazing event that everyone enjoys. However, it is very important to recognize and acknowledge the fact that this is, in fact, a Plainville Fire Company event. Again, planned, manned, and handled exclusively by the members of the fire company and their families. Not only do the members of the PFC train for and respond to local emergencies, but they work tirelessly to provide the town of Plainville and others with this much-loved event. Please be sure to bear this in mind and, if you enjoy the festival, thank a member of the Plainville Fire Company. Erica Donovan Plainville

Don’t make time for Lyme By Shane Lockwood Plainville-Southington Health District Spring and summer are officially here, triggering the imagination of warmer weather and longer days. As we look forward to turning down the thermostats, opening windows, and spending more time outdoors, Gene Gagnon, a registered sanitarian of the PlainvilleSouthington Health District, would like to remind everyone, “ticks which transmit Lyme Disease become more active when temperatures are above 35 degrees, and since Connecticut is in the top 10 for states reporting cases to the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention, this is a little too close for home.” Lyme disease makes hundreds of thousands of people sick every year; it is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. Children are especially hard-hit by Lyme disease with the highest incidence among children between the ages of 5-14. Ticks live in places where there is a lot of tall grass, shrubs, and leaves and wait for an animal or person to

walk by, then grab on to find a good place to attach themselves. They might hide in a person’s hair, or behind the knee, or even under clothing. Ticks bite into a person or animal’s skin and start drinking their blood. Tick bites don’t usually hurt, so you may not even notice. The tick can stay attached for a few days. When it is full it will fall off. To prevent tick bites: — Avoid tall grass and overgrown, brushy areas. — When hiking in wooded areas, stay in the middle of trails. — Consider using insect repellent, following manufacturer’s instructions. — Tuck pant legs into socks, wear long-sleeved shirts, and closed shoes. — Wear light colored clothing to see the ticks and make it easier for removal. — When returning indoors, shower using a wash cloth or puff to remove any attached ticks. — Examine yourself, children, and pets for ticks when returning indoors. — Talk to your veterinarian to find out how to protect See Ticks, next page

Water for the wild birds By Ruth Sharp Hummel Special to The Citizen

Well, the bird feeders are down and suet holders both are put away until autumn. Now it’s time to put out water dishes. These can be almost any shallow container but not metal. I favor the really large plant saucers, source of which are available in plastic and are excellent and easily cleaned. I scrub mine every week, more often if it’s really hot. I have a small cart for carrying water jugs and seed and I have a scrub brush hanging on it.

I was afraid one of the turkeys would be hit by traffic that goes much too fast up the hill. One of the great big Tom turkeys “had enough” one day when a speeding pickup

truck went by, just as he tried to cross the road. Enough was enough, and he chased that truck quite a way down Ledge Road before strutting back. I think he was hoping I saw his pursuit. There are cardinals that I see every day, a pair and at least one offspring; Pappa of course, in cardinal red, Mom in more subdued colors suitable for when she is on the nest. Sit outside and enjoy the ever changing array of our wild birds. Lots more soothing than television.

your pets from tick bites. What to do after a tick bite: — If you or a loved one is bitten, remove the tick promptly. — Grasp the tick’s mouthparts against the skin, using pointed narrow tweezers. — Pull steady until you can ease the tick out of the skin. — Do not pull sharply; this may tear the mouthparts from the body of the tick and leave them embedded in the skin. — Do not squeeze or crush the body of the tick; this may force fluids from the tick into the skin. — Do not apply substances such as petroleum jelly, nail polish, or light a match to the tick while it is attached. They may agitate the tick and force more infected fluid into the skin. — Once you have removed the tick, wash wound site with soap and water. — Observe the bite site over the next several weeks for any signs of expanding rash. — Removing ticks within 36 hours of attachment reduces the risk of infection. If you are bitten by a tick, a small red bump may appear in a few days to a week, usually at the site of the bite. The bump may feel warm and ten-

Then there are three very large plant saucers easy to keep scrubbed and filled. I space them so that non-social able species may drink in peace.

PHS softball team takes on coach’s persona By Ken Lipshez The Plainville Citizen

A dedicated and attentive follower of a particular sports team is apt to discover that the team takes on the personality of its coach as games and practice sessions mount up. You have to recognize the coach’s persona, watch carefully and think about it, but patterns do emerge. The presumption couldn’t be more observable as it was with the Plainville High softball team this season. Coach Jen Micowski rarely tasted defeat during her three-sport career at Southington High School. When she did, it never tasted very good. She went on to play Division I college basketball at Providence before embarking on her teaching and coaching career at Plainville High. The Blue Devils finished their season at 9-12, the end coming May 28 in East Haven

by a 9-1 score in the first round of the Class M tournament. As the season progressed, Micowski and her girls dealt with the loss of key players due to injury and personal reasons. The team adjusted, scrapping through the schedule in perhaps the best division in the state, the CCC South. Micowski shared a particu-

team sports for your school, in your hometown. On May 21, the Blue Devils hosted St. Paul in a game that had little repercussion on

their overall scheme. They had already made the tournament with the season’s signature win – a 3-2 victory over Bristol Eastern eight days before. The game didn’t even have bearing on the league standings, since St. Paul was rejected by the CCC circa 2008 and moved to the Naugatuck

Baseball squad plans to build from positive notes By Ken Lipshez The Plainville Citizen

The reputation that the Plainville High baseball program has earned is well-known in every corner of the state. This year’s edition fulfilled the minimum requirement of winning eight games, due in large part from competing against bigger schools in the CCC. The result was a 33 seed in the Class M tournament, which forced the Devils to deal with a playin game against No. 32 Woodland. Plainville ventured to Prospect and battered the Hawks, 6-0, earning the right to travel to Winsted for a game against top-seeded Northwestern Regional. The once-beaten Highlanders trailed early by five runs, but managed to rally for a 7-6 win in 10 innings. They expected a battle and they got one. “I thought about going over to Woodland and I realized they’re going to be looking in the parking lot for that Plainville bus and looking for those Plainville uniforms because come tournament time, we’re

ready to play,” Plainville coach Lou Mandeville said. A 9-13 record and barely making the tournament is not up to Plainville standards, but playing home-and-home sets with the likes of the Bristol schools, the Meriden schools, Middletown, and Berlin remains a formidable task for a town with a significantly smaller pool of student-athletes. No matter. The Devils believed they could run the table.

Tourney recap Matt Thomas tossed a two-hitter at Woodland and led the offense with a double and two RBI. Tyler Favreau went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Tyler Pina had two hits and drove in a run. “We were practicing before the tournament and I told the kids that the season didn’t go exactly as we planned but the goal was to get in,” Mandeville said. “Once we got in, everybody’s 0-0 again.” Sophomore southpaw Brett Snowden got the start against Northwestern. “He pitched well, but he labored.

He didn’t pitch his best game, but we had confidence,” Mandeville said. “He got us into the fifth and we were ahead 6-1.” A leadoff walk and three straight hits enabled Northwestern to narrow the gap. Mandeville went to Brian Dostaler. The Highlanders cut the lead to 6-4 heading into the sixth, but Plainville’s bats had gone silent. “We had eight hits up to the fourth inning, then two the rest of the way,” Mandeville said. “That’s the thing about baseball. You look up and you’re winning 6-1 but good teams like that come back quickly.” A leadoff walk in the sixth, a single, and a wild pitch put the tying runs in scoring position. The momentum had switched and pulling an upset of such proportion on the road slipped away. “I’m proud of them,” Mandeville said. “You couldn’t fault them. They got off the bus with a lot of enthusiasm and we played hard. We played to win. It just didn’t happen.”

The future The big question hovering over

PHS baseball – most PHS sports, in fact – is whether it will continue to face the CCC South’s gauntlet of much larger schools. That’s the case in the immediate future, and Mandeville says the program’s ready for the challenge. “I’m excited about the kids coming back,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of pitching prospects. We have kids that want to be successful. They’re hungry. We’ve had individual meetings with kids to tell them what to do to get better next spring. They were good conversations. They were excited. We’re confident with some of the young kids. The JV team was12-5 so that’s something to build on.” Departing seniors include Thomas, Pina, Dostaler, Favreau, Marc and Dean DeMartinis, Chad Welz, and Damian Kempi. Juniors who were major contributors were: shortstop Shane Pugliese, catcher Cody Charneski, infielder Matt Sauvron, and Matt Monteleone. Returning sophomores include Snowden, Mike Munson, and Rob

Softball Continued from page 20

In the CCC South, competing with the likes of the two Bristol schools, the two Meriden schools, Berlin, and Middletown is a formidable task for any team from Plainville. The geography isn’t kind – a small town wedged between the cities of New Britain and Bristol, one of the state’s largest one-school towns in Southington, and Farmington, which may have set records in growing from Class S in the 1980s to knocking on the door of ‘LL.’ But uphill battles don’t deter Micowski. She’ll grit her teeth, put in her time and coach up a storm. And by the end of the season, whether it be softball or basketball, you’ll see her kids doing some gritting, too.

Continued from page 20 Pezzulo. Others who loom as potential factors are Kyle Beloin, Sam and Jon Lindgren, Marc Milo, and Mike Adams. “Pugliese and Charneski played full-time varsity,” Mandeville said. “Munson and Sauvron played mostly JV.” Both Mandeville and JV coach Ryan Raponey were encouraged by the improvement that Sauvron showed. “It should give him a push for next year,” Mandeville said. “He started at Woodland and we gave him a couple of at-bats. We wanted to show him that what he accomplished did not go unnoticed.”

Pina’s play

PHS golfers finish 17th at CCC Tournament Richard Hansen shot an 82 to lead the four-player Plainville High contingent at the CCC Boys Golf Tournament at Stanley Golf Course in New Britain May 28. Hansen finished in a tie for 30th place. The Blue Devils were 17th of the 28 teams entered with a score of 357. Nick Lea shot an 84, Mike Costantini was next at 89, and Chris Utley finished at 102. Berlin won the tournament with a 309, followed by Conard (312) and Glastonbury (314).

If Micowski is looking for a slogan for the locker room

over his scholastic career. “We were telling him as a freshman and sophomore that maybe he should go do something else. He batted .403 this year. He was the most improved player I’ve ever seen,” Mandeville said. He also led the team with 20 RBI and 30 hits out of the fifth slot in the lineup. Pugliese led the team in stolen bases (16). Thomas and Dostaler both notched four wins on the mound. Thomas batted .323 and led the team with 19 runs scored. Favreau hit .333.


Micowski is now 54-70 through seven seasons, but the future holds promise. Sophomore Rachel Lancaster is at the core. She began the season at shortstop, but moved to the pitcher’s circle early in the season when senior Jaqui Wuchert opted out. Her determination mirrors that of her coach. The Devils will lose the middle of their batting order in first baseman Cheyenne Dalke and center fielder Katy Dressel, but the remainder of the starting lineup should be intact. Corner outfielders Shayla Beausoleil and Arielle Lozefski, second baseman Dani Angelillo, third baseman Sarah Ercoli, and catcher Alexis Ruscito represent a solid nucleus of seniors. Nicole Basile earned significant playing time as a sophomore utility player.



Valley League. Micowski noted a lackadaisical attitude had pervaded the team and didn’t like it one bit. “I was unhappy with the way we took the field so we talked a lot about what their jersey needs to mean to them,” Micowski said. “Every time you put it on, you have to take pride in what you represent. “I asked them, when people ask you where you’re from, do you say Plainville like you’re proud of it or do you say Plainville like you have to define where it is?” The 6-4 loss to Berlin in the regular-season finale on Senior Night represented a dramatic change. “I think they took it to heart,” Micowski said in the aftermath of the game. “They represented Plainville and I’m hoping we can do that in the state tournament.” Rallying from the 27th seed to beat the No. 6 team on its own turf would have been equivalent of a 50-year storm – such occurrences are extremely rare.

wall, she ought to consider, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” The reality is that Plainville High’s athletic teams will always be forced to choose their athletes from one of the smallest pools. Using softball numbers as a paradigm, the 32-team CCC contains 13 Class LL schools, 11 in Class L, six in ‘M’ and two in ‘S.’ Only four CCC schools had a smaller female enrollment than Plainville in 2012 and two of them – East Catholic and Northwest Catholic – are not restricted by town borders. The other two are Bloomfield and Weaver, whose softball struggles are heartrending.
