Plainville Republicans look to get ‘back to basics’ this year By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

For this election cycle, the Plainville Republican Town Committee is promising that if elected, candidates will get “back to basics.” Campaign committee co-chair-

Andrea Saunders, Helen Bergenty.

and

women Helen Bergenty and Andrea Saunders are hoping Republicans can capture the majority on town council and the board of education to impose a bit of “common sense” for the town’s affairs. “It’s been Democrat control for quite a few years,” said Bergenty, who also acts as the vice chairwoman for the RTC. “So it’s time to get back to basics and have some common sense.” Saunders, a BOE incumbent whose term is not up yet, said the biggest issue seems to be the spending. “I think it’s a hard time and I think people, like with the federal government and the state government, they want us to control spending, and we need people that are going to be in See Republicans, page 5

The Plainville Town Council appointed two members of the police department at Monday night’s meeting. Liam O’Brien was appointed to police officer, and Sgt. Eric Peterson was promoted to lieutenant. Peterson has been with the department since 1997 and finished first out of five officers who tested for the position. “This is a very big step, not only for Eric but for the police department,” said Chief Matthew Catania. “I have every confidence that Eric Peterson will be an excellent police lieutenant for the Town of Plainville.” “I’m eager to work in the position,” Peterson said. “It’s

a big jump and I’m ready to learn and move the department into the future.” O’Brien, a police officer in Avon, is a resident of Plainville. “He is interested in our policing initiatives and looks forward to developing his career here in Plainville,” Catania said. “I’m confident that Liam O’Brien will make an excellent police officer for the Town of Plainville.” “I’m looking forward to getting started and I’m grateful for the position,” O’Brien said. Residents voiced a few concerns during the open forum about the new school administrators contract, that if approved would be effective from 2012-15. John Kisluk

Plainville Democrats’ campaign focuses on personalities By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen This election cycle, the Plainville Democratic Town Committee is looking to put the right personalities in office. “I think that’s what we focus on when looking at candidates is more personality than someone who’s going to toe the party lines, Warzorko so-to-speak,” said DTC chairman Christopher Wazorko. Wazorko, also vice-chairman on the town council, said some of the new candidates running for town council and the board of education

can offer new perspectives and ideas. “I believe it was FDR [Franklin Delano Roosevelt] who said it, but something to the extent that there’s no Democratic or Republican way to pick up garbage, or to provide police and fire safety,” Wazorko said. “Our issues are much more local and they’re much more personality-based and I think the challenge to any council is finding the personalities that work best.” For town council, four incumbents are running for a spot: Wazorko, Lynn Szach, Jason Rupaka and Robert Ciotto Sr.. Quinn Wazorko Christopher is the lone new candidate running for council as a Democrat. For the BOE, incumbents Charlotte Koskoff and Patrick Ringrose

The Plainville Democratic Town Committee will sponsor a food drive benefiting the Plainville Community Food Pantry on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Gnazzo’s Food Center, 73 East St. Plainville. “There has never been more need to help others than in this economy, said town council member, and committee chairman Christopher Wazorko. “And that need is especially underscored at this time of year when special occasions and holidays will soon be here.” Candidates in the upcoming election will be staffing the collection effort at Gnazzo’s. Council candidates include Wazorko, Jason Rupaka, Lynn Szach, Quinn Wazorko Christopher and Robert Ciotto. Board of education candidates are Patrick Ringrose, Charlotte Koskoff, Barbara Willard and Foster White. The pantry is in special need of food items including boxed potato and rice, pasta sauce, juice boxes, gravy, cranberry juice, instant oatmeal and condiments. Nonperishable items that are especially needed include laundry detergent, dish soap, bath soap, facial tissue, deodorant, toothpaste and diapers. “A bottle of juice, a can of coffee, a box of cereal, or a roll of paper towels may seem like an insignificant donation,” said Wazorko, also crediting Gnazzo’s for its help. “But if we all give something, all those donations collectively make a difference to a family in need.”

the website’s important because it has their bios up there, so if people have any questions about who they are, isn’t that what everyone wants to know? Who are these people?� The website Saunders mentioned is www.plainville republicans.org, and has bios and pictures of candidates running for town council, BOE and constables. Saunders said it has been dif-

ficult to get an idea of which way the town is leaning party-wise, but the general sense is that people want a change. “It’s hard to get a pulse on the town, we don’t have polls out, we just have to go by what we hear,� Saunders said. “But yeah, people are frustrated, we hope that when they say they’re frustrated that they want change, they want new peo-

there to do that,� she said. Another big issue on the list is the charter revision currently under way to address how the budget is voted for. “The main thing in the charter revision is the budget and how they vote on the budget,� Bergenty said. “The third vote doesn’t make any difference if they vote or not.� Running for town council for Republicans are incumbents Dan Hurley, Scott Saunders and Lee Toffey. Kathy Pugliese and Rick Drezek are running as new candidates, though Pugliese has experience on the council, serving for 10 years before taking a hiatus. For constables, Gail Pugliese, Ezio Capozzi, Jane Wolak and Anthony Bartolotta. For the library board, Jay Steeves is running. “She’s [Kathy] very levelheaded, she knows how to speak to people, and she has a good handle on the town [council] and the board [of

education] side,� Saunders said. “She has a good handle on where things need to go.� Drezek is currently on the Charter Revision Study Committee. “We’ve got good candidates, because Rick [Drezek] he runs a car agency in Manchester, he lives here in Plainville and he is a very brilliant man with money,� Bergenty said of the new candidate. “You have all kinds of people running for different reasons,� Saunders said. “But I think the key thing is they’re not happy with the direction our town’s going in.� Bergenty and Saunders said they are doing what they can to get the candidates’ names out there, old and new, so the town knows who they are voting for. Bergenty said candidates will be going door-to-door and making phone calls to citizens. “For us, especially the board of education since we have so many new candidates, we just want to make sure we get their names out,� Saunders said. “That’s why

are in the race, and new candidates Foster White (twoyear term) and Barbara Willard are also vying for a spot. Wazorko said Christopher, a younger candidate, has her master’s degree in social work. “I think she just brings a different perspective which is something I think with our slate I think we really do a good job of bringing in new people who haven’t been involved before,” he said. Wazorko said one of the bigger issues out there right now is finding new revenue sources and spending taxpayers’ dollars more wisely. “Over the last three years, the town has lost about $3 million in revenue and that’s through local, state, and federal resources,” he said. “So one thing we need to continue to do is to find new revenue sources and one of the things I like to say is we have to learn to do more with less, and I think that’s the important thing looking to the next two years.” Wazorko added that town hall has been able to consolidate some responsibilities, and new staff will likely not

be added in the near future. He said one way to look at reducing spending is making sure that every dollar spent counts, but not taking away some of the town’s services

that benefit the community. “What you want to avoid in the economy we’re in, you don’t want to be making changes to your services,” he said. “Because traditionally, the services you provide help those that are truly in need.” As an example, Wazorko used the automated trash

pickup service the town recently switched over to that saved some money. He said it is cheaper for citizens to pay for the service through the town rather than having to hire someone privately to pick up their trash. “I think that’s the important thing is realizing the

services we provide, we can do it cheaper than if someone if had to go out and do it on their own,” Wazorko said. “That’s why I think it’s important to keep those services and not try to reduce those.” Wazorko also mentioned the charter revision study currently underway that is evaluating the budget voting process, which he said could use some minor changes. He also mentioned the disputes between the council and BOE, something he said he believes is more personalitydriven than partisan. With the election, he said it will

give a chance for new faces to come in and add different perspectives and hopefully find some middle ground. “I think with the election we kind of can start fresh and I think we’ll come to some agreement where both sides are comfortable and get the information they want and being able to share what they want,” he said.

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Support incumbent

To the editor: Please support Scott Saunders for town council. During the past two years while Scott has served on the council, the town has faced many challenges. The council has had to make tough decisions on many issues that impact its residents. Scott always approaches these decisions in an objective manner with a goal of sustaining or improving the quality of life that living in Plainville affords us. Scott serves the community in others ways as well. In his spare time he has served Thanksgiving dinner to the volunteers at the senior center, helped the flood victims of Tropical Storm Irene and answered your questions when you called him on the telephone. He also maintains his appointed liaison posi-

tions to the library, police department and the Aviation Commission. Even when he is not attending meetings he is consulting with fellow council members, talking to the town manager or researching ways that he can be the best public servant possible. While some former councilman are trying to tear him down, Scott is focusing on the issues facing our community and building up Plainville so we may all have a better tomorrow. He is a strong voice in a town where so many remain silent. Re-elect Scott to the town council and vote for all of the Republican candidates (Row “B”) on Election Day, Nov. 8. Daphne Adams Plainville

Concern for youth To the editor: I am writing to support

the election of Foster S. White to the Plainville Board of Education. I have had the pleasure of working with Foster for over 20 years. He has a deep and abiding concern for the youth in our community. He has volunteered his services as producer of the PCS Youth Theater since its inception in 1985. He is an active board member of the Wheeler Regional Family YMCA and volunteers as a mentor in the Plainville School District. Foster has over 45 years of experience in the financial services industry. With this experience and the knowledge gained in years of varied community service, he is in a unique position to function most effectively as a member of the Board of Education. I believe him to be a perSee Letters, next page

Commentary

First impressions of schools are positive By Jeffrey C. Kitching Special to The Citizen Over the past several weeks, I have had the opportunity to meet with the board of education, faculty, staff, Kitching parents and community members in Plainville. Through these meetings, I have learned a great deal about Plainville Community Schools, and we have much to be proud of. My first impressions of our school district are positive ones that I would like to share with you. First, within Plainville Community Schools, there is a strong connection between central office administration, school administration and the teachers in the classroom. As a result of these connections, we are able to work together to continuously improve what and how we teach, use data to support our initiatives and strategies, infuse technology at all levels of learning, and base decisions on what is best for

students. Through this collective commitment, standardized test results have shown marked improvement, and we have witnessed a significant reduction in the number of students performing at lower levels on these tests. In addition to continuous academic improvement, our school district continues to expand opportunities for students to broaden their horizons through rich opportunities for academic, social and emotional growth and learning. Expanded offerings in the high school’s advanced placement program raise the bar for students preparing for post graduation studies, and a variety of academic, co-curricular and support programs engage and motivate our diverse student population. Some of these include Scientific Research Based Interventions, STARS summer reading and math program, and the Plainville Family Resource Network. An array of clubs, athletics, enrichment programs and community service opportunities are See Positive, next page

Letters Continued from page 12

son of impeccable character and integrity, and one who has the desire to work hard for the youth and citizens of Plainville. Please join me in supporting the election of Foster S. White to our board of education on Nov. 8. Maryjane Peluso Plainville

Support full slate

To the editor: We would like to take this opportunity to encourage the voters of Plainville to cast their votes on Nov. 8. We are submitting this letter in support of the Democratic slate for town council and board of education. They will work hard to promote the well-being of our community. They have a mix of knowledge, experience and new perspectives. Town council candidates Christopher Wazorko, Lynn Szach, Jason Rupaka, Robert Ciotto and Quinn Christopher will work to promote economic growth in order to increase our tax base. They are a group of responsible citizens who have volunteered their time and talents to a variety of boards and committees. Board of education candidates Patrick Ringrose, Barbara Willard, Charlotte Koskoff and Foster White have similar community ties. Their involvement and dedication working for the improvement of educational and youth services is an outstanding testament to their concern for the children of Plainville. We encourage you to support the Democratic team. Gary M. Boukus and Elizabeth “Betty” Boukus Plainville Elizabeth “Betty” Boukus represents the 22nd Assembly District, which covers Plainville, Bristol and New Britain.

‘You have a say’

To the editor: The slogan for the Democratic candidates this year is “You Have a Say; Vote Row

A.” In this era of cynicism and negativity, let’s first remember that we do indeed have a say in how we are governed. On Nov. 8, I will be going to the polls to express my opinion on how Plainville should move forward over the next two years. I personally and sincerely believe that the Democrats running for town council and board of education represent the best choice for us this year. The incumbents bring experience with recent issues and projects while the first-time candidates will bring new ideas and points of view. All of the candidates are committed to fiscal responsibility and ongoing improvement of the town. These nine candidates have no personal agendas other than doing what is right and what is productive for Plainville. Most especially, they are committed to establishing a positive and civil level of discourse in local government. Moving forward does not require our officials to always agree but it does require them to work together with respect, civility and an eye on the greater good rather than individual political gain. That is how our town will move progress. I encourage other Plainville voters to also support the Democratic candidates when we all have the opportunity to be heard on Nov. 8t. At the same time, I give credit and thanks to all candidates who are running this year. It takes courage and commitment to get involved and to put your name out there. It is what keeps our democracy working. Rosemary Morante Plainville

Person of integrity To the editor: Barbara Willard is a person of integrity and honesty. She always has the best interest of our community’s children at heart from promoting small class sizes to encouraging student involvement in community service. I have personally witnessed her positive, professional interactions with students, support staff, teachers and the principal of the high

school. I support Barbara’s re-election to the Plainville Board of Education. Michael Verrett Plainville

Work together To the editor: With town council and board of education elections coming up, a thought struck me, the cooperation between the two groups has been almost non-existent. Instead of working together to solve their budgetary needs, taxpayers see a town council focusing on finding ways to eliminate the taxpayers vote, and a board of education focusing on finding ways not to share budgetary information. I looked at our town’s organizational chart and based on its structure, the town council chairman and board of education chairwoman are equals, with the town manager and superintendent of schools reporting to them respectively. The town council, which controls the budget allocation process appears prone to taking its direction from the town manager, and the board of education is being told of “protocols” regarding distribution of board of education documentation by the school superintendent. Our school superintendent states, “If I am going to be held responsible, I need to know who is asking and in what regard.” If he, as school superintendent, has not been kept aware of board of education policies, then how did Kathleen Binkowski perform her duties as school superintendent? Currently we have two members of our town council seeking school board budgetary information and quite honestly I do not know what they plan to do with the information when and if they get it, and we also have a charter study revision team which has a suggestion to combine the two departments’ budgets, the town and school, into one. I am curious how that would be structured, but as I said in a previous statement, I was not allowed to question. With that said, I have to ask, why hasn’t our town

council chairman taken the initiative and contacted the board of education chairwoman and joined by both the town manager and superintendent of schools held joint meetings to find ways to better present their annual budgets and distribution of requested school documentation? Instead of focusing on annual political kingdombuilding policies, how about trying to work together to solve problems. Perhaps this will foster better understanding and cooperation between the two groups and the real winner would be the taxpayer. Lou Frangos Plainville

Dedication to town To the editor: This year the voters of Plainville have an opportunity to elect a team of outstanding candidates. Our Republi-

can candidates have pledged to work as a team for the future prosperity of Plainville and will make the hard choices that must take place. Our town council slate includes incumbents Dan Hurley, Lee Toffey and Scott Saunders. Rick Drezek, a first-time candidate, and Kathy Pugliese, a former town council member, round out the ticket. This group of individuals has excellent skills and possesses a true dedication to supporting our town government in the most cost effective manner. Our board of education slate consists of some new names who have stepped up to the challenge of running for office. Deb Hardy, Lisa Buckley, Mike Giuliano and Bob “Zimmer” Anderson are enthusiastically campaigning for their respective positions. All of these individuals are committed to support-

permit me to go into detail on two situations that Charlotte Koskoff ’s actions impressed me. John Kisluk is very much like Mrs. Koskoff: does his own homework and is not shy about asking questions. It will be interesting to see what John can do on the BOE from the other side of the podium. The others running I don’t know. I do know that the BOE is on the wrong track for our town. It is time for new blood. Like they say, vote the bums out. For town council it is time to bring back Andy Grandbois and Tom Arcari. This time around they have freed themselves from the strings that come with a party affiliation. As a former police officer, Mr. Grandbois knows how to ask questions that get at the truth. He is not shy about voicing his opinion and does his homework on issues. Tom Arcari knows

He will crunch the numbers to make sure that you pay no more in taxes than is absolutely necessary. Well I am out of space again. Make sure to vote. It is important. Arthur Screen Plainville

are always told these increases are for “the good of the children.” If we complain, some form of punishment is chosen to keep us in line. The BOE’s chairmanship was once considered a position of “public service” where finding a balance between the needs of education while remaining accountable to the taxpayers who foot the bill was a noble goal. No longer. Tyrrell has squandered valuable time and money obstructing the town council and preventing the citizens from seeing how our money is being spent. She has deceitfully and falsely claimed that a court case in Newington set a legal precedent allowing her to maintain her defiant secrecy. What does she wish to hide from the citizen-taxpayer-voter? When will this citizen-taxpayer-voter realize that he is in charge? Tyrrell has so violated the trust and the best interests of the citizens that she should resign immediately. I doubt she will do the honorable thing so the second best thing is that her chairmanship be removed from her. There is an election on Nov. 8. Right now there is a Democrat majority on the BOE. If this Democrat majority becomes the minority then she will be removed from her position. I therefore implore the financially responsible voters of Plainville to do the right thing and vote only for the Republicans and independent running for BOE and with a little luck we might be able to restore a little sanity to this broken system.

To the editor: I am happy to add my name to the list of Plainville voters that support Foster S. White in his current effort to be elected to the two-year term on the Plainville Board of Education. I agree with his publicly stated position that education must be the primary focus of local government. It is the responsibility of a local board of education to ensure that the local school district provides the best education possible to the youth of the community. I also am happy to join Foster in urging all Plainville residents take time to get involved in this year’s election. The active participation of all eligible voters in our local election process is essential, and the most direct method to ensure our tax dollars are used most effectively. Please join with me in voting for Foster on Nov. 8. Christine P. Kuzia Plainville

times our disagreements were pretty fierce. But each of us cares deeply about this town and in the end, we always did what we believed was right. Sadly, the negativity from a small but very vocal group has grown to a level I’ve never seen before. Isn’t there a more civil way to make a point? Serving on the board of education isn’t easy. It’s complicated and time consuming and the learning process never ends. But it is also

Scoring King: Senior sets school record By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

With several games still yet to be played, Daquan King has become the Plainville High School soccer program’s all-time scoring leader. The senior forward netted his record 58th career goal last week in a 4-1 victory over Bulkeley. King finished the game with a hat trick, bumping his season goal total to 18. “It means a lot to me to be one of the elite players to come through the Plainville High School system,” said King. “To achieve this is something I’ll treasure forev-

er; past high school, college — forever.” PHS soccer’s previous scoring champ, Alyssa Martino, now plays for Providence College. “It was definitely on my mind this season. I knew I had the opportunity,” King said of eclipsing Martino’s mark, set in 2009. “I just worked hard, scored goals, and I’m glad that I reached it.” He has garnered a lot of praise over the years, but King knows his success hasn’t come without help. “I wouldn’t have done it without them,” he said of his teammates. “They give me

The beat goes on The Plainville High School boys soccer team downed host Maloney, 2-0, last week to improve to 9-2 on the year. Shane Pugliese and Allen Mehmedovic took care of the scoring against Maloney. Heading into this week, with just five regular season games remaining, the Blue Devils appear poised to repeat as Central Connecticut Conference South Division champions, and to garner a high seed in the upcoming CIAC Class M state tournament.

the ball. They help me on the field and off the field. I’m thankful for that.” King earned a starting varsity spot as a freshman, and has gone on to achieve AllState and All-Central Connecticut Conference accolades. Last year, King helped lead the Blue Devils to the CCC South Division championship, the team’s first conference title in more than 20 years. The senior captain discussed the secret of his success. “Just the hunger and the state of mind when I’m in front of the goal. I don’t panic,” said King. “I always try to stay in the mix and always try to score. I always try to do something different, keep up to date on my stuff. As you can see, it’s been working out.” Defenses have keyed on King since his sophomore year, but he isn’t bothered by the extra attention. “It’s harder. But I enjoy a challenge,” he said. “I try not to stay in one area all the time. I

The Plainville High School girls soccer team topped visiting Maloney, 5-1, Monday to punch its ticket to the upcoming CIAC Class M state tournament. The Lady Blue Devils, spurred on by three goals from Lexxi Carroll, improved to 7-4 with the victory. A team must win at least 40 percent of its 16 regular season games to qualify for the tournament. This year will mark the PHS girls soccer program’s eighth straight postseason appearance. Pictured: Plainville’s Danielle Angelillo navigates a crew of Berlin defenders during a recent match up.

That’s why it’s so hard to mark me.” With the end of his scholastic career in sight, King said the experience has

gone by too fast. “I’m going to miss it when I leave,” he said. “I’ve had some great times here, but I look forward to the future.” King plans to continue his career at a NCAA Division I or II school.

Execution problems doom gridders in Week 5 By Mark Pukalo Special to The Citizen It will be a long week of practice for the Plainville football team. Not only do the Blue Devils have to prepare for tough Northwest Catholic (4-1), there was a common theme in their gut-wrenching 21-20 loss at Rocky Hill Friday. “It’s very tough to win football games when you don’t execute,” Plainville coach Chris Farrell said. “Our defense played pretty well. When you cause five turnovers and don’t win, you’re not doing something right. We had opportunities to put the game away and we didn’t step up.” The Blue Devils fell behind 7-0 in the first quarter, but seemed to have wrested control of the game in the second. Adam Foster, who led the way with 110 yards rushing for Plainville (3-2),

ran nine yards for a score to tie the game. After a fumble, Kevin Waite scored from 10 yards to give the Blue Devils the lead, and a blocked punt set up Chris Kuzia’s 5-yard touchdown run. “I thought we were well on our way,” Farrell said. Plainville did not have a full, twotouchdown lead though. The last extra-point was blocked and the Blue Devils held a 20-7 advantage. It would prove critical. “The biggest thing we talked about all season is you can’t take things like that for granted,” Farrell said. “I think our extra-point team did that. Every one of them could have been blocked.” Rocky Hill (3-2) battled back to take the lead before the end of the half. Greg Marzilli ran 29 yards for a

Team makes up for in heart what it lacks in numbers By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

They think they can. They think they can. Its roster shaken by illness, the Plainville High School girls swim team still has managed to keep its head above water this fall. The short-handed Lady Blue Devils rattled off four victories in a row recently to improve to 5-4. The locals knocked off the Hartford co-op, Platt-Meriden, East Hartford and Bristol Eastern during their hot streak. “The numbers have been down, so it requires everybody to push themselves,” said PHS coach Randy Doucette, who has had as few as 11 athletes in action. With numbers so low “they

Even suffering from debiliPlainville High School tating back pain, the team girls swim coach Randy captain wants to be in the waDoucette said it’s nearly im- ter. “She’s almost insistent that she’s still going to swim meets,” Doucette said of Quealy, plagued by protruding discs in her spine. “She’s swimming through the pain every meet. After every meet it takes her a day or so to recover. And she volunteers for it.” A lifelong swimmer, Quealy’s back problem has gotten worse since arriving at PHS. At one point this season, Doucette thought the senior would have to hang up her swim cap for good. But Quealy had other ideas. “This is what she wants to do,” said Doucette. “You can’t tell her to stop.” A freestyle swimmer, Quealy competes in meets, but practices sporadically in order to rest her back. However, even when she doesn’t practice, she attends the workouts. “She’s there every day,” Doucette said of the captain. “We just are very extra cautious on how we use her. The rule is, if I say she can’t practice on a certain day then she can’t practice. She’ll try to practice when I know she’s not ready. She just wants to be in the water.” Thankfully it appears Quealy’s back issue will not HOURS: M-F 9:30-9 SAT. 9:30-6 SUN. 11-5 worsen with age. By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

“But they didn’t. And they don’t.” The East Hartford meet was another hard-fought victory. That was a back and forth affair. “They’re a competitive bunch of girls,” Doucette said of his troops. “They’ve developed that attitude where they’re just going to lay it all on the line, and what

You have to just put them in it.” The coach listed Jen Heslin, Morgan Lacombe, Emily Zuckerman and Megan Farmer as team members who have done well in unfamiliar events.

of 50 teams. The Blue Devils went on to defeat Bulkeley last week in their regular season finale. Plainville was slated to return to Wickham Park Wednesday for the Central Connecticut Conference championships. Heading into the event, the locals were second in the CCC South. Against Bulkeley, Plainville’s Isabella D’Onofrio notched her first career top finish. Due to low numbers, PHS is unable to register a team score on the girls side, but D’Onofrio has persevered, and was expected to have a good day at the CCC championships. “She is coming into perfect form at the right time,” said Berard. — Nick Carroll

touchdown and Troy Syme connected with Jordan Labossiere for 27 yards and a score. Marzilli made both extra points for the lead. “That was a missed assignment and I thought we should have had the quarterback sacked,” Farrell said of the TD pass. “We didn’t keep our heads up.” Plainville still had a half of football to get the lead back, but could not put any points on the board. The Blue Devils had a costly holding penalty and fumbled one chance away, but drove to the Rocky Hill 9-yard line with 10 minutes to go before being stopped on fourth and two. Farrell credited Rocky Hill’s defensive line for making Plainville’s offensive line uncomfortable. “I watched it 100 times on tape,” Farrell said. “The play was there, we just didn’t execute.” The Blue Devils’ defense gave them a chance to win it. Safety Brian Lister led the way with a single-game school record 14 solo tackles.

That didn’t happen. However, Compson was pleased with the passing work he got from Alle Caponigro and Alicia Gorski. The Plainville High School cross country team competed in the Wickham Invitational recently, and coach Shaun Berard pointed out it wasn’t a memorable day for his troops. “Wickham did not go great for us. I take some of the blame for this,” Berard said, adding that he worked his guys too hard just days before the meet. “I also should

By the half-mile mark, I knew we were in trouble.” Still, the Blue Devils managed to turn in some solid performances. Plainville’s Nick Giuliani surged ahead of more than 100 runners over the last two miles of the race and landed in 72nd place. “I know he was disappointed with that performance,” Berard said, “but he recovered well after the first mile.” The Blue Devils’ Bryan Salazar crossed the finish line in 57th place.

Plainville fell to Maloney, 3-1, and New Britain, 3-0, last week. “Our games against Maloney and New Britain were painful for the coaching staff,” PHS head man Steve Compson conceded. “With one win needed to punch a ticket to the postseason, for the seniors to earn one more game, for the underclassmen to take part in getting your seniors another game, you expect that players would be

Craftsman’s talent transforms fine wood into furniture, now at library By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen

After decades of owning a successful flower business, John Bresnahan never thought his woodworking talents would become a passion. That was before he retired. Now, primitive-style furniture crafted by Bresnahan is getting noticed, most recently at the Plainville Public Library, 56 E. Main St., where it will be on display until the end of October. The craftsman spends hours each day in his workshop in his Southington garage creating rustic benches, jelly cupboards, tables and heritage trunks. If someone suggests an item or requests a piece of furniture, Bresnahan immediately gets on task with myriad ideas. He gets inspi-

ration many places: historic homes, books and museums such as Sturbridge Village. He does not make copies of these items; he transforms them with his own unique style. Starting with a basic design, he builds the piece then finishes it in numerous ways according to a customer’s request or what he thinks will work best with the materials. The tops to coffee tables, stools and other furniture have been left plain, painted, stenciled, illustrated with rustic themes or even woodburned with designs. Bresnahan gave away his first creations as family gifts, shipping handcrafted benches for weddings and bridal showers to as far as Kansas and California. Generous as it was, it didn’t take long to realize that was getting expensive. He be1220796

John Bresnahan stands with some of the furniture that he made and is on display at the Plainville Public Library, 56 E. Main St. A reception for the exhibit will be held Saturday, Oct. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. gan receiving requests for custom orders from friends and neighbors. “The more I did, the better I did,” Bresnahan said. Working in a “primitive” style appealed to him, he said, because “I’m not a finesse-type of person; I’m a meat and potatoes type of guy. Rustic ended up being

my venue.” One key to his popularity is putting his customers first. He recently visited a Litchfield home to see and measure the exact spot where a client wanted a bench. While talking with people and seeing the setting he can get a better idea of what they want exactly, he

said, and what would fit best in their decor. He also likes transforming previously used wood — including a 50-year-old fir deck and a dining table — into a new creation. “I try to be unique,” he said. Bresnahan said he does not get the time he has spent on a piece back from the selling price. His craftsmanship is too time intensive. “You have got to love it,” he said. The furniture exhibit at the library came about through his wife, Midge. She works in Plainville Adult Education and sometimes tutors students at the library. Looking at other displays Midge had the idea for a display of her husband’s furniture. Bresnahan said he is grateful that his wife has encouraged him to pursue his interests. Library Director Peter Chase thought the display was a good idea also because there had never been a furniture exhibit there, he said. Bresnahan said it was important to him to give 5 percent of any proceeds to either the Wounded Warriors Project or Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. They plan to do the same if any furniture is sold from the Plainville library exhibit. To see his furniture, visit www.bresnahanprimitivereproductions.com.

Northwest Catholic will make for another difficult test Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in West Hartford. The Indians handed Berlin its first loss, 20-3, last week and their lone loss was at Bloomfield, 29-28. “Northwest Catholic is a very disciplined, wellcoached team,” Farrell said. “We need to make sure the execution problems we had last week go away. They have two excellent running backs and we have to make sure we do our jobs. “Our players work really hard. It’s just a matter of when they are knocking at the door they need to put it away.”

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, October 20, 2011 it’s out of line the way the economy is now.” Domenick D’Onofrio agreed, saying the administrators would get paid too much with too many paid days off in sick, vacation and holidays. He also said the nolayoff clause should be removed. “Nobody on Earth is guaranteed no layoffs, this was a mistake,” D’Onofrio said. “I don’t know whoever put this

in, it should have never happened. Nobody, any factory or office can guarantee no layoffs.” Kathy Pugliese requested that the council provide a total value for the current contract now and the future contract in question. “There are a lot of provisions in those contracts for payouts for accumulated sick days which could be a substantial amount of money when the administrators retire,” Pugliese said. “So I think in order for the community to understand, it’s not just so much about salary increases, there are other
