Local author merges marketing with writing By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen

Citizen photo by Crystal Maldonado

Vincent “Vinny” Mullin prepares his remotely operated vehicle to compete in an underwater obstacle course at the Sea Perch competition at Plainville High School June 6.

By day, North Carolina native Jennifer Fusco manages advertising at General Electric in Plainville as the creative and brand manager. At night, she’s surrounded by angels and demons. “I have two lives,” she said, her Southern accent slipping out despite moving to Plainville to “be a Yankee,” as Fusco said, at 29. Now living in Waterbury with her husband and son, Fusco spends her free time writing urban fantasy, paranormal romance fiction and,

more recently, nonfiction books to help writers self-publish their novels. After self-publishing her own books, Fusco decided to help others like her do the same. Using skills she’s gained from her day job at GE, Fusco has written three books in her “Market or Die” series. “A lot of writers are skipping over the whole agent thing and publishing themselves. They do get to keep more profits that way,” Fusco said. Her most recent book, “Sensible Brand Building Advice for Writers,” gives the latest

tips to writers trying to make it in the self-publishing world. “They’re not seeing the sales that they want. They’re not comfortable with marketing themselves. They can tell a really good story but that’s only half of the job – they need to market themselves,” she said. “So I teach them what I know.” She aims to entertain, too, with her fiction works that often delve into supernatural settings. Her upcoming urban fantasy novel, “Deceived by Darkness,” follows Shay Donovan, a

Plainville teams sweep at SeaPerch competition By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen “I’m very, very proud of them,” said Plainville High School technology education teacher Jeff Wanner. Students from his Engineering Concepts course swept the first ever Connecticut-wide SeaPerch competition held at Plainville High School June 6, with juniors Vincent Mullin and Forest Zirpolo taking first place in both the obstacle course and the recovery portion. “It was harder than I expected,” Mullin said. Spencer Roy and Tyler Clemens snagged third place in the obstacle course, while Tyler Clemens and Alexis Rodriguez came in third place for recovery.

But what is SeaPerch, exactly? SeaPerch is an underwater robotics program where students build remotely operated vehicles, or ROVs, made from low-cost parts, to navigate through an obstacle course and to try to rescue empty buckets, tasks that mimic real-life Navy tactics used in salvaging ships or exploring the ocean. The classroom curriculum merges engineering, science, robotics and math in preparation for the competition. “We talk about design, buoyancy, the difference between salt water and fresh water,” Wanner said. “We talk about the power of the See Competition, page 13

Kelli Parady has spent her life doing things that are a little, as she calls them, “crazy.” A 2003 Plainville High School graduate, Parady wrestled, ran cross-country and studied martial arts. She joined the Marine Corps (which she’s been in for 8 ½ years) and now she’s taking part in the Spartan Death Race in Pittsfield, Vt., an endurance race comprised of mud runs, obstacle racing, trail racing, physical challenges and mental challenges. It can last as long as 48 hours. “Everything I’ve done has been naysayers saying, ‘you can’t do that, why would you want to do that?’ I call what I do the path less traveled,” Parady said. Parady signed up for the June 15 race with a friend and knows nothing about what the race entails. None of the competitors do. “There might be some log running or we might be told to swim to the bottom of a river and find a rock with our number on it,” she said. So far, the Spartan Death Race organizers have done everything possible to make the race a difficult one. They’ve changed the lists of gear Parady needs to bring, changed the time and even sent the competitors rude emails to ‘go away’. “This is all part of the game,” she said. On average, only 15 percent of the competitors who enter the Spartan Death Race finish the event, according to the website, aptly named

ing to be the upper body strength because I don’t have a lot of it,” she said. “I think that no matter what, we’ll get it done. If you’ve got people screaming that you can’t, we’re going to say we can, even if that means working together. I believe in teamwork.” Although Parady has participated in other Spartan races before, the death race takes the challenges to an entirely new level, she said. “I hope this brings my workout cycle to a new regime and gives me a different way of looking at physical fitness,” she said. “My goal is to complete the Marine Corps marathon. If I can complete this crazy death race, that race will be easy.”

Saturday, June 23, from 1 to 4 p.m. is the official opening of the Plainville Historical Society’s Summer Show about the Plainville Stadium. The show, which runs through Aug. 25 at the society’s 29 Pierce St. location, is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from noon to 2:30 p.m. Plainville Stadium, owned by Joseph Tinty, began as Tinty’s Flying Ranch, where small air shows were held. In 1948, the first auto race was held at the stadium, which started as a dirt track. Once the races were finished, the fans were covered in dirt and mud and they protested. Tinty then paved the track, which was home to stock car races throughout the years. While the track had its share of fights and crashes, it helped the careers of several local drivers who eventually became nationally

known. The exhibit will feature a model of the Plainville Stadium, photos of the stadium at different time periods and photos of various drivers and their race cars. For more information, call the Historical Society at (860) 747-6577.

2006, promises it’s a lot of fun. “The kids are so excited,” she said. “I don’t think they quite understand exactly what to expect until they get there.” Project Graduation, an All-Night Drug and AlcoholFree Party held at Wheeler YMCA, is for Plainville High School seniors on graduation night (this year, that’s Wednesday, June 20). It’s been around since 1990 and continues to grow. Between $20,000 and $25,000 is raised annually through various fundraising events (such as Mr. PHS,

dodgeball tournament, clothing drives) to put together the overnight party. A large chunk of that goes toward entertainment, including DJs, caricatures, food, games and even a casino. “To me, it’s one night to be with their class for the last time having fun together without drinking or doing anything crazy,” Dargenio said. Nearly 85 percent of the class attends each year, with each of the 200 or so students taking home a prize. It’s an opportunity for community members and lo-

cal businesses to get involved with something for the kids. “It’s absolutely important,” Dargenio said. “I always tell them to consider it a gift from the parents and teachers. I think it keeps them safe.” For those interested in seeing the decorations, the public is welcome to visit Wheeler YMCA from 5 to 7 p.m. To volunteer for one of the overnight shifts, available from 8 p.m. on June 20 to 4 a.m. June 21, call Barbara Willard, (860) 747-8989 or Kris Dargenio, (860) 747-1965.

Author Continued from page 1 single mother whose baby is the King of Demons, as she battles against the boy’s father with the help from some angels. “When you’re in the fiction world, you’re seeing it. It plays in your head like a movie. You can see it in your mind what’s happening,� Fusco said. As for the subject matter? “I’ve always been kind of drawn to it,� she said. Fusco been recognized for her writing by the state of Connecticut and the Women and Family Center, as well as endorsed by authors like Eloisa James, a New York Times bestselling author who

wrote the “Desperate Duchesses� series. Fusco, who’s president of the CT Romance Writers of America, has also been the guest speaker at several conventions. She’ll be the keynote speaker at Romance Writers of America’s national convention this summer and Fusco will speak at the Annual Crimebake Conference, a mystery writer’s convention. “When I got an email out of the blue, I was literally jumping up and down,� Fusco said. “They’re just so well-known for the quality of speakers that they get. That was really flattering. I was like, you want me? Me? Really?� The conventions, she said, give her an opportunity to meet other people – fans, aspir-

ing writers and even her own idols, including author Nora Roberts (who’s written over 200 romance novels). But it wasn’t always easy for Fusco, who said she had a rough start. “I’d always been a writer, but it was more for myself, through college, in diaries and what-not. One day I said, ‘I’m going to sit down and write a story,’� she said. “The story was awful! It was terrible.� She submitted the work – which she emphasized “stunk� – to an agent who said she had raw talent. But she’d never anticipated being recognized for her work. “I started writing the fiction

by Alina Osnaga, MD Lyme, CT was made famous in 1975 when Lyme disease was first identified there as a tick-borne infection. Its prevalence is highest between May and September. The following are ways to avoid contracting the disease: • Wear protective, long clothing • Wear light-colored clothing to more easily spot ticks • Check skin daily for ticks • Remove ticks promptly • Keep brush cut short • Apply insect repellant with 20-30% DEET

How to Properly Remove a Tick Ticks should be removed immediately using tweezers. Pull the tick upward without twisting to avoid leaving part of the tick in the skin. Wash the area with soap and water and apply an antibiotic cream. Call your primary care physician to report the tick bite. Save the tick for later identification. Lyme ticks removed within 24 hour of exposure are very unlikely to transmit Lyme disease.

It's time What’s the Treatment? Your doctor may prescribe a single dose of antibiotics as a preventive measure within 72 hours of the tick removal. If you have already been diagnosed with Lyme disease, antibiotics will also be prescribed, but the length of required treatment depends on the severity of symptoms and how long you have had the disease.

Letters to the Editor

Divided

As of late, it appears that an increasing divide exists between our town government and the people it represents. I have mentioned in previous letters that I had differences of opinion on town government and Board of Education issues with our previous Town Council, but I always felt that I was being listened to and not just being given five minutes to speak, waiting for a bell to ring and told your time is up. Adding to the frustration is the fact that it seems that when a question is presented to the Town Council, more times than not, it is answered by the town manager.

I realize the importance of the work and advice given by the town manager within this form of government, but I believe it is the elected members of our Town Government who respond to the residents of Plainville and upon whose shoulders lay the final decision on the issues that face the town. This Town Council is facing decisions on some significant issues; the final outcome of the newly formed Old Linden Street School Committee, the Charter Revision Commission’s final draft, the Blum-Shapiro Feasibility study, the projected costs of repairing the Wheeler School roof, and the latest “hot-button” issue, the possi-

bility of the Phoenix Soil Company coming to Plainville. After all the work sessions and advisory meetings are completed, it will be the vote of the Town Council which approves or disapproves the issues. After last year’s town elections, a Town Council member stated being “shocked” by the outcome. Respectfully, I say to our current Town Council members, do not be fooled by what may appear to be a lack of Plainville resident participation in town politics, they are watching and they are paying attention.

Dad, dandelions, DNA and destiny By Olivia L. Lawrence Special to The Citizen Most of us have a favorite tool and mine is a little device I call the pokey-weeder. It’s magnificently simple. A long handle like a shovel or rake might have with a twotined fork on the end. Stick it into the soil at a slight angle to the root system of a weed, a quarter turn and viola you’ve made the extraction. In my case, the target is always a dandelion. I’ve easily done 10,000 removals; that’s with no bending and no dirt on my hands. Love my pokey-weeder, the ultimate low-tech tool. Sometime, around my 2,000 or 3,000 dandelion kill, I was struck by my crazed, single-minded focus on this aspect of lawn care; the distain I feel for those who freely yield their property to the yellow plague. How I pull into the driveway and immediately spot a neon yellow of-

fender, shamelessly waving about on the far side of the house. Rather than rushing to greet my family, including a lonely mutt, I throw my work bag down on the steps grab the pokey-weeder (always at the ready by the front door) and full-throttle head towards my target. And so I became aware of my dedication to this War on Dandelions because it was remarkably like the one my Dad waged 50 years ago when I was a kid. Only my Dad (now passed on) didn’t use an environmentallyfriendly pokey-weeder. He was strictly a weapons of mass destruction kind of guy. Why take chances and use a hand grenade when an atomic bomb would guarantee results. He had a spray bottle with a home-made label and he’d walk around the yard for

hours dousing each offender with curses and the deadly elixir. Something he’d concocted in his workroom back in the barn where he liked to hang out by himself with a radio and beer cooler no one was allowed to touch. I’m guessing his secret dandelion juice definitely contained DDT, cigarette ashes and hootch. Or whatever combination of poisons is most likely to reduce a dandelion to toxic waste that

“It’s fun,� said PHS senior Sotire Moliko, following the first round of competition. He and his partner, Sebastian Olechowski, competed in the obstacle course first. Teams had 15 minutes to snake their ROVs through the large rings at the bottom of the pool one way and then back the other way. Fastest time won. Meanwhile, Mullin and Zirpolo tried delivering buckets from the bottom of the pool to the surface as their first task.

There were five total and teams had to get as many buckets to the water’s surface as possible in 15 minutes. “We practiced it differently,� Zirpolo said. “But we managed to get two.� Wanner, who suggested the SeaPerch competition be held at PHS, first ventured into the underwater robotics program in 2011. “To tell you the truth, the first time I heard SeaPerch, I was like, what are we going to do?

will take nature eight billion millennia to reclaim. My Dad wasn’t big on nature having a say in these matters. Man’s manifest destiny was to control and contain nature - especially those dastardly dandelions. Tomato hornworms were also on his must-kill list. I grew up thinking tomato plants were white, that’s how much death-powder he put on them. I’d guess my mother was horrified, but there was no point in saying anything. My Dad knew everything and everyone else knew

squat. So I walk around my yard, extracting dandelions, pondering nature versus nurture. Do I have a genetic predisposition to kill dandies or did watching my Dad stalk and spray them all those years of my youth seal my fate? There are no clear answers and I don’t claim it’s a pretty picture. But my Dad was my Dad, faults and all, and every time I jab my pokey-weeder in the ground and hear a dandelion scream, I know a little part of him is there with me.

BEST OF... AWARDS 2 0 1 2

Voted Best Burger in Southington

1st PLACE

The Secret of Our Award Winning Taste burgers is grilled to order. That’s the reason we don’t have a drive thru window either. Perfection takes time. That’s our promise to you. It’ll be the best seven minute wait of your life. Our Pop wouldn’t have it any other way. His name is on the sign. It’s our sign of pride. A constant reminder of our heritage. We think of it as the gold standard for burger lovers everywhere. And our fries are equally singular in freshness, quality and taste.

Our fries are cut from farm fresh potatoes each morning by hand. One potato at a time. Then they are timed cooked to perfection in their skins in natural peanut oil. Nothing less would pass our standards nor would complement our burgers better. And two words about our hand scooped and individually blended milkshakes: try one. Taste is everything. That’s the secret to winning awards.

Wednesday Family Night Kids eat free after 4:00 pm One FREE kids burger, hot dog or grilled cheese with every adult burger purchased. Dine-In Only. Children 10 years and younger only. Ends Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012.

Not all hamburgers are created equal. We have tested and re-tested our burgers, drawing from an old family recipe to add the right amount of the right spices to bring out those taste tempting flavors that tantalize as well as satisfy. Our burgers are made fresh each day. Every day. No exceptions. Nothing is ever frozen. Ever. This ensures that every burger is the best you can buy. That’s why we don’t have any freezers. Burger making is an art. Each of our

Devils earn eighth state championship 1983, 1984, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1999, 2008, 2012 By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

According to players and coaches, team unity and positivity is what led the Plainville High School baseball team to a state championship this spring, the program’s eighth. “Our theme in the beginning of the year was ‘no negative,’” PHS coach Lou Mandeville said Friday night after his Blue Devils knocked off Haddam-Killingworth, 31, in the CIAC Class M state finals at Palmer Field in Middletown. “No negative in practice. No negative in games. We’re going to keep moving forward. And that was just huge, because as we got going their confidence picked up more and more. They started believing in themselves, and they started believing in each other. And then we just started rolling.” Starter Matt Thomas, who earned the pitching victory against H-K, also spoke to that point. “All positive thoughts throughout the year. There were no distractions,” said the junior, who allowed just five hits and one run in the title game in 5 2/3 innings of work. “That’s how we got here and ended up winning it.” Thomas not only turned in good work on the mound at Palmer Field, he also came through at the plate. His RBI single in the top of the seventh gave the locals their winning margin. Pitching-wise, Thomas got out of some tight spots. “Matt’s a bulldog,” said Mandeville, in his first year as head coach. “Matt fights. When he gets runners on base, he doesn’t give in. He’s a challenger. He’s a competitor. He’s a kid you want on your team.” Reliever Tyler Favreau closed things out for Plainville. He allowed no hits, no walks and struck out a

pair – including the final batter of the game — in 1 1/3 innings. “Words don’t describe this. This is what you play for since you’re in Little League. It just doesn’t get any better than this,” said Favreau, a junior. “It’s overwhelming. It’s an experience I’ll remember forever.” Thomas and Favreau were caught by senior Chris Kuzia. “This is the craziest feeling I ever had in my life,” Kuzia said during the championship celebration. “We didn’t know where we were going to be at the beginning of the season. There’s not one superstar on this team. We’re all just one big family, and we do everything together. There’s not one person who stands out every game; it’s the whole team, every game.” Senior outfielder Nick Moshier echoed that. “We’re really just a close team,” he said. “We all get along well, and this is just insane. When you get to the finals you want to take advantage of it. It’s very special.” The Blue Devils, who jumped out to a 2-0 lead over H-K in the second inning, generated six hits in the title

game. Marc DeMartinis accounted for two of those, and scored a run. Also coming through with hits for the victors were Shane Pugliese, Moshier

(run) and Erik Perrotti (RBI). Tony Lo Pizzo drove in a run and scored one himself. The locals received some nifty glove work from third baseman Tom Dinda, second baseman Pugliese and shortstop Perrotti. Plainville (18-7) earned a modest 11th seed in the Class M tournament, but went on to win four games with relative ease to earn a date with No. 9 H-K (18-7) in the finals. An estimated 1,800 spectators attended the title game, including former PHS baseball coach Bob Freimuth, who led the Blue Devils to five state titles during his tenure, which ended after the 2011 season.

Freimuth, clearly elated, was on the field Friday night to hand out the championship medals to his former team. “Coach Freim just wanted a big hug, and that’s what I did, I gave him a hug,” said Kuzia. “He knows what it’s like to play with tradition. We just kept it going for him, so he must be real happy.” The 2012 Class M state champ’s roster is rounded out by Tyler Pina, Brian Dostaler, Cody Charneski, Matthew Monteleone, Dean DeMartinis, Mike Munson, Jason Monteleone, Matthew Sauvron, Robert Pezzulo, Kyle Beloin and Brett Snowden.

Mandeville’s allegiance rewarded By Jim Bransfield Special to The Citizen Uhhh, that’s Bob who? OK, that’s unfair. Bob Freimuth was a great baseball coach at Plainville High School who won five state championships. But this year, in Freimuth’s first year of retirement, the mantle of leadership fell on longtime assistant Lou Mandeville. He stepped into some pretty big shoes, Mandeville did. As of last Friday night, it appears those shoes fit Mr. Mandeville just fine. That’s because in front of a roaring crowd of 1,800 at Palmer Field in Middletown, Plainville won the CIAC Class M state championship, 3-1 over HaddamKillingworth.

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, June 14, 2012

Mandeville Continued from page 21 Mandeville is 1-for-1. “I was with Bobby for 20 years,” said Mandeville. “I played at Plainville for coach [Ron] Jones. When I took over, there was nothing to change. Plainville baseball has been successful since 1976, so all I wanted to do was breed confidence, breed belief in the kids, in themselves. We allow no negatives; no negatives on the field or in the locker room. “But yeah, those were big shoes to fill, of course. Bob was a great coach and tonight, he’s just as happy as we are.” Freimuth spoke for himself. “I knew Coach Lou would be all right,” said Freimuth

before the title game. “He’s a great baseball man.” Mandeville was frank to say he talked with Freimuth all season long. “If it wasn’t every day, it was every other day,” said Mandeville. “He supported us throughout. That kind of support from Bob was comforting.” In this championship season, there was a particularly dark day. Mandeville remembered it well. “We went to Bristol Central and we got beat up 121,” he said. “I sensed the kids felt like they didn’t belong on the same field with Central, so afterwards I lit into them. I told them they had to be focused and they had to believe. If not, they couldn’t win. The next day we played Berlin and we won 5-4 in 11 innings. That

was the turning point of the season. We took off from there.” The game with H-K was a tight, taut, tingling affair that had the 1,800 fans on the edge of their seats all night. It wasn’t until Plainville got an insurance run in the top of the seventh that Plainville could exhale, even if just a little bit. The key to the win was starting pitcher Matt Thomas, who got a four-out save from fellow junior Tyler Favreau. “He’s a bulldog; nothing rattles him,” Mandeville said of the game-winner. “He goes pitch to pitch, he battles, he competes.” And he won. Sort of like the coach who went from year to year as a loyal assistant. Then, when he got his chance, he won too. Won it all.
