Food pantry ready for holidays By Ken DiMauro The Plainville Citizen Officials and volunteers of the Plainville Community Food Pantry are gearing up to help needy residents during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and Susie Woerz, executive director of the local agency, said more than 130 families will receive assistance. A tough recession has affected young and old alike, and Woerz, who has never seen it this bad during her 20 years with the food pantry, predicts it will get worse before it gets better. Workers at the pantry are building baskets or bags of supplies that will feature turkey, fixings, potatoes, vegetables, butter and orange juice, and will be handed out Nov. 21 in time for Thanksgiving and Dec. 19 for Christmas. The only differ-

ence is more food is given for the December holidays because kids are off from school that time of year. Woerz said people who used to regularly donate to the pantry are now requiring help. However, she said, Plainville residents and businesses always seem to want to help. She said residents’ thoughts naturally turn to those who are in need. She also cited organizations such as the Disciples of Jesus Christ group at Plainville United Methodist Church who assist the pantry by sponsoring events. The Methodist group will be collecting cleaning supplies, toiletries and nonperishable food items Nov. 20 to Nov. 23 in front of Gnazzo’s Food Center. Other groups, including the Citizens and Property Owners Association of Plainville and the historical

society, also hold smaller food collections that are very helpful. Residents also may find out about the upcoming Secret Santa that will give presents to children of all ages. Woerz said gift certificates and gift cards for older kids are especially needed. Last, but not least, is help available for those in need to heat their homes during the colder months. While oil and natural gas prices have decreased slightly, needy residents need help heating the place they live. She suggests that anyone who wants to find out about the criteria for getting help can call the pantry at (860) 747-1919 or the Bristol Community Organization at (860) 582-7490. Woerz said the BCO is one of many area groups that can help resSee Pantry, page 8

Plainville remembers its veterans By Ken DiMauro The Plainville Citizen The more than 80 residents who attended the Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 11 in downtown Plainville were appreciative and patriotic, many waving miniature American flags as members of local veterans groups spoke of the sacrifice and service of men and women in the U.S. military. Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 574, American Legion Post 33, American Legion Post 199 and other veterans groups participated in the ceremony, which was led by William Cancelli, who serves as a chaplain. The ceremony began at 11:11 a.m. and took less than 30 minutes. State Rep. Elizabeth A. See Veterans, page 3

Members of the Clean Energy Task Force were told Nov. 12 the town is proceeding with the recommendation to apply for $74,794 in federal stimulus grants that will be used for installing a master control system for the Municipal Center and replace the outdated boilers at three town buildings. Stephen DelBuono Jr., chairman of the task force, learned officials are finishing the paperwork and have been given an extension until Nov. 19 to submit the application. Three firms were under consideration to install the new control system at the Municipal Center, which will

cost around $65,000. The committee made a general recommendation and the Town Council will pick the firm based on that and information received from town staff. The controls will automatically shut off lights and turn down heat and air conditioning when a room is vacant, saving money on energy. Any leftover money will toward replacing ancient boilers at the historic center, parks and recreation and buildings and grounds buildings. Officials said it may be possible to do one or all three boilers and apply for more funds that might become available. The energy committee

Veterans Continued from page 1 “Betty” Boukus also addressed the crowd, telling them Nov. 11 remains a significant day for veterans, especially those who are keeping the peace in Afghanistan and Iraq. Also attending the ceremony was Town Council Chairman Dan Hurley, who is best known as the person who heads up the Memorial Day parade and related events. Hurley said he was glad to see a good turnout Nov. 11. “I’ve said it before, Plainville is a very patriotic town,” he said. Cancelli introduced Plainville resident Bart Mazur, who was a member of the National Guard for 10 years, and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2006-07. Mazur said it was good to see the support of Plainville and area residents and thought the ceremony was appropriate and well attended. Boukus and Hurley were proud of their efforts to get

town employees to fix the flagpole at Veterans’ Memorial Park. The flagpole was given a new coat of paint and Boukus donated a new U.S. flag. Town Historian Ruth S. Hummel and Plainville Historical Society President Nancy Eberhardt also attended the event. Eberhardt invited the attendees to attend a display of items honoring local and area veterans at the Plainville Historic Center. U.S. Navy veteran Robert “Dick” Fitz was showing a model of one of the Liberty ships he served on during World War II. Items originally owned by Sgt. Lincoln May, a military policeman who was killed during the Korean War, were on display. For many years, May, who was from Plainville, was listed as missing in action, until DNA sci-

Business aids local causes A Plainville business is planning several collections from now through the December holidays to help local residents in need. Doug Marcarelli, manager of Skyline Fence, said the company is partnering with the Plainville Community Food Pantry and Foodshare to collect canned food and turkeys until Wednesday, Nov. 25. Items will be accepted at the business, located at 450 Farmington Ave., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to

3 p.m. The company is part of Foodshare’s Turkeys and Twenties program, about which more information is available at the Web site www.foodshare.org. Marcarelli said he would like to see local businesses involved in contributing “donations that will be used for the purchase of oil, pellets and firewood to help people with their heating needs this year,” he said. After Thanksgiving, Skyline Fence will also be accepting toys for children. Company officials said they are also planning to give free Christmas trees to those who have lost employment during the past year.

On Oct. 22, 52 DECA students from Plainville High School boarded the bus at 7 a.m. eager to attend this year’s Fall Leadership Conference, held at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville. The opening ceremony spiked excitement throughout the room, as students from across Connecticut entered by actively listening to our state DECA advisors. We attended a series of workshops to enrich our leadership skills for the future. The first workshop we attended was an icebreaker activity where the goal was to develop a comfort level with our peers. The second workshop was all about market madness. The students competed to buy and sell stocks to make the most money without going in the hole. Through this workshop the students learned skills of strategy, teamwork, and trust.

Commentary

Data collection helps decisions basis to set their own goals for writing and math problem solving. Every four to six weeks students are asked to write for 45 minutes on a topic that is provided by the district. These writing pieces are then assessed for their fluency, organization and use of elaboration and supporting details. Students chart their progress on a bar graph, reevaluate their goals and spend their writing time during the next cycle working toward these revised goals. A similar process occurs with math problem solving. Helping students to selfassess their work and set their own goals gives them a sense of ownership in the educational process, thereby improving motivation and achievement. Helping every child to become a self-directed learner is an overarching goal in all of our schools. Kathleen Binkowski is the superintendent of Plainville Community Schools.

In the Plainville Community Schools, we have learned that in order to stay on the path of continuous improvement we must become users of data to make decisions about our policies, programs and students. Through our partnerships with General Electric, the Connecticut Center for School Change and Central Connecticut State University, teachers and administrators are learning how to incorporate thoughtful data collection and analysis as tools for classroom and school improvement. We have learned that relying on anecdotal information, our instincts, or our “gut feelings” are poor substitutes for using data when we need to make important decisions. The recent Mathematics Program Evaluation is an example of how purposeful data collection and analysis led to systemic improvements in curriculum and instruction, which was a contributing factor to the strong gains in our middle and high school mathematics scores on the Connecticut Mastery Test and the Connecticut Academic Performance Test. Surveys were administered to students, teachers and parents to gain insight into how effective our instructional and homework practices were in advancing students’ knowledge, understanding and attitudes about mathematics. A team of administrators conducted classroom visits to collect data on instructional strategies and student engagement. A “slice” of homework and assessment practices was collected as teachers were asked to submit homework assignments and assessments over the course of a three-day period. A team of science teachers analyzed the work using a specific scoring tool designed to measure the engagement and rigor of the work. Analysis of these data points enabled us to recom-

mend instructional changes that improved student engagement at both the middle and high school levels. At the same time, we compared our existing mathematics curriculum to the newly adopted state framework and developed a clearer scope and sequence for mathematics instruction in fourth through 10th grades. This coordinated and collaborative approach, blending curriculum enhancements with instructional improvements, resulted in improved student achievement at all levels. The state’s standardized testing program gives us a snapshot of our students’ progress; however, it is not the only means we have for measuring how well our students are doing. Assessments in the areas of reading, writing and mathematics are well under way in grades K-8. For example, students in our elementary schools confer with their teachers on a regular

For 10 years before that, he served as assistant principal at PHS. The newly seated Town Council had been aware of Coppinger’s retirement, but was told of Ziogas’ plans by Board of Education Chairwoman Becky Tyrrell during her regular report to the council. Tyrrell later said the school board will begin a long process to select a successor to Ziogas. She said the search likely will take at

Lee complimented Coppinger’s tenure as leader of the police department, calling him a mentor for younger officers and for providing good and stable leadership. Tyrrell said Ziogas was instrumental in helping to successfully open the recentlycompleted $44 million construction and renovation project at PHS. She said Ziogas loves PHS and is appreciated and respected by residents, officials, educators, parents and students. Ziogas began his 40-year career in Plainville as a teacher at Linden Street School. In 1976, he became a middle-level educator at the former Plainville Junior

Cub Scout Tiger Pack 49 High School. He also was athletic director of the district from 1985 to 1996. “It’s been 40 years of wonderful employment in a community I love,” Ziogas said. “It’s been nothing but wonderful experiences.” Coppinger was former chief of the Simsbury Police Department and was assistant director of the Police Training Academy in Meriden. He also was a criminal justice instructor at Northwestern Community College in Winsted. A career police officer, Coppinger also has other family members who are in the field. Both Ziogas and Coppinger are in their early 60s. While Coppinger has indicated what will be his last day, Ziogas has only announced his intention to retire, which could come as late as June. That would give the school district enough time to find a suitable successor. In Coppinger’s case, he is leaving in early January. Longtime Capt. Peter Costanzo would probably become interim chief as the council begins its search. Lee said the search wouldn’t take six months. This is not the first time Coppinger has started the process to retire. In early 2006, he had indicated he wanted to retire, but at the time Lee said he hadn’t received an official signed request, spelling out dates. In the end, Coppinger ended up staying as chief.

Hospital goes smoke-free

1134632

To protect the health of patients, visitors and employees, The Hospital of Central Connecticut went completely smoke-free Nov. 1. Smoking will not be permitted outside buildings, in parking areas and garages or on any other property owned and operated by the hospital. This includes HCC’s New Britain General campus, Bradley Memorial campus in Southington and other hospital facilities. Smoking is already prohibited inside all hospital facilities. “Going completely smokefree is a major step toward making our hospital healthier, safer and cleaner for everyone,” said HCC President and Chief Executive Officer Laurence A. Tanner. “It’s also an important part of our mission to improve the overall health and well-being of the people we serve.” HCC is joining with other Connecticut hospitals in the Connecticut Hospital Association Clear the Air Initiative,

The Plainville Citizen Thursday, November 19, 2009

launched last fall. The initiative’s goal is to have all 29 CHA member hospitals completely smoke-free by November 2010.

Physician honored Dr. Joseph Kambe, Hospital of Central Connecticut director of Surgical Critical Care and Trauma, was honored recently as one of 11 recipients nationwide for his efforts in organ donation and trans- Kambe plantation. Kambe was selected Region 1 Champion of the Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice for his ongoing commitment and passion to enhancing donation and transplantation, and working with regional colleagues to advance such practice. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration selected Kambe as a champion. In late September, he and

other HCC staff members attended the National Learning Congress Medal of Honor Awards Ceremony in Grapevine, Texas. In addition to this award, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognized the hospital for the fourth consecutive year with the Health Resources Services Administration Medal of Honor for the outstanding work of its ICU staff in assuring availability of organs.

Hospital appoints new staff The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s board of directors has approved the following medical staff appointments: Pathology: Barbara J. Arcarese earned her medical degree at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, Old Westbury, N.Y. Arcarese completed a pathology residency at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, New York City; a hematopathology fellowship at Beth Israel Medical Center, New York City; and a surgical pathology fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine. She practices at The Hospital of Central Connecticut. Pediatric dentistry: Matthew Goslee earned his dental medicine degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. Goslee completed a graduate program in pedi-

atric dentistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He practices at Posner & Turkus in Bristol. Breast surgery: Nirupama Anne earned her medical degree at State University of New York Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, N.Y. Anne completed an internship and surgical residency at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, New Hyde Park, N.Y.; and a surgical oncology fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, N.Y. She practices at Connecticut Surgical Group in New Britain, Farmington and Hartford..

Thousands walk to ‘make strides’ American Cancer Society officials announced that an estimated 10,500 Connecticut residents participated in four Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k walks in October to honor breast cancer survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to the disease, according to Patrice Bedrosian, Connecticut state director of communications for the American Red Cross. “The combined effort has raised nearly $900,000 thus far to fuel the most promising research, spread lifesaving breast cancer awareness messages, advocate for screening opportunities for all people, and eases the cancer burden for all facing the disease,” Bedrosian said.

Gutsy gridders close in on finish line By Mark Pukalo Special to The Citizen

Photo by Matt Leidemer

The Plainville High School girls soccer class of 2010 is pictured with coach Leszek Wrona prior to their Senior Night game at Alumni Field.

Senior soccer players left their mark on program By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen Plainville High School girls soccer coach Leszek Wrona won’t long remember the sad faces of his seniors as the seconds ticked away on their final scholastic game last week. Instead, the veteran head man will chose to recall the hardworking soccer class of 2010 as it normally was — upbeat and positive. “That’s what I like to remember — happy girls,” he said. “They were always happy.” Wrona indicated that this year’s senior class, comprised of Chelseah Carroll, Tiana Saraceno, Lauren Mikulak, Melissa Horan, Melissa Avery, Alyssa Martino, Brittany Gallant and Heather Zup, left its mark on the program. “They’re a great group of girls,” Wrona said. “They always put the team before their own personal goals.” And the younger players took note of the seniors’ selflessness and ‘team first’ mindset. “The example was coming from them,” Wrona said. “They will be very difficult to replace.” Spurred on by its senior contingent, this fall Plainville made its sixth straight appearance in the postseason. The Lady Blue Devils’ 2009 campaign came to an end

Nov. 11 with a 3-0 loss to Lauralton Hall in the second round of the CIAC Class M state tournament. Wrona made no excuses for the lopsided defeat. “We tried extremely hard, but lost the game to a better team,” he said. Lauralton Hall’s defense managed to do something few teams could — contain Martino. The speedy forward, who will continue her career at Providence College, is the first PHS female soccer player to score more than 50 goals. Martino manufactured 33 goals this season alone. Lauralton Hall went on to lose to St. Joseph 2-0 in the quarterfinals. After dropping its first three games of the year, Plainville righted the ship and ran up a solid record of 11-6-1. “Definitely, I’m very happy with the performance this year. We started out slowly, but after that, adjusted and finished very strong,” said Wrona, who wished to thank the PHS athletics department and fan-base for their support. Clearly, the Lady Blue Devils lose a great deal of talent to graduation, but they won’t be starting from scratch next year. The locals return a solid core of varsitytested talent to the field in 2010, including Lexxi Carroll, Jill Newton, Lauren Mankowski and Kayla Fortin.

The script was no different for the Plainville football team on Senior Night Friday at Alumni Field. The Blue Devils produced another gutsy effort, but a deeper, bigger, faster team could not be denied. Middletown jumped on Plainville early and eased away for a 38-6 victory in the rain. Plainville (0-9) has had trouble with numbers all season and suited up just 19 against Middletown. The Devils were also missing some key players with injuries. “That gives [opponents] a big advantage,” Plainville coach Rocky Gagliardi said. “There’s only so much you can do. But the kids fight. We made a couple really good drives. We never give up. That’s been our motto all year.” Gagliardi said the Devils can’t worry about the lack of numbers. They just need to strap it up and go, and they were excited to play against Middletown — also coming into the game winless.

Plainville’s problems in the kicking game hurt them all night. A snap got away from the punter and Middletown ran the fumble into the end zone for an early lead. The Dragons never looked back. “We had too many turnovers,” Gagliardi said. Middletown, led by quarterback James Woods, used a balanced attack to pull away for a 26-0 lead before Plainville could get on the scoreboard. Rob Voisine connected with Nick Moshier for a 9-yard touchdown on the final play of the first half. Plainville used that momentum to play a solid second half, but the Devils could not produce any more points. “We made some adjustments at halftime on defense,” Gagliardi said. “We did a good job holding them down pretty well in the second half.” Gagliardi praised his seniors for their leadership. During this difficult season, he said the team has never stopped working hard by their example. “The seniors have given it all they’ve got,” Gagliardi said.

The local spikers’ most notable accomplishment was getting Plainville back to the postseason for the first time since 2002. The Lady Blue Devils fell to East Catholic 3-0 Nov. 9 in the opening round of the state tournament and ended their campaign with a mark of 8-10. “There were frustrations for many and some tears by our seniors. Their four years as players ended, but they can look back and see the impact they have had,” thirdyear Plainville coach Steve Compson said. “On Senior Night we put together a picture of these girls from freshmen year, and another from this season. Those little girls really got

And they have turned into very beautiful young ladies. They leave a nice legacy behind them ... and they are still a little goofy,” Compson joked. Compson’s senior team members came a long way during their years with the Lady Blue Devils. The pro-

gram grew and improved along with them. Graduating from the team are Haley Belanger, Jess Luke, Ashley Raynock, Katrina Nelson, Jess Finizio and Emily Shapcott. “These girls, through the four years they’ve been here, these seniors, have gotten more victories every single year. Their freshmen year, the varsity was 0-16. Since then, they’ve put wins up,” Compson said. “Since I got involved with the program, our motto has been ‘we want our seniors to play one more game.’ These kids got it done.” Katrina Nelson, a team captain, is content with the work she and her fellow seniors turned in this fall. “We worked so hard for this. This

group of girls has always worked hard. We’ve always had the chemistry, and this year it all came together. So I’m really proud of our group,” she said. Now, the quest to keep the program moving in the right direction continues. Anchoring the Lady Blue Devils next season will be Justine Walicki, Christina Mullin, Alle Caponigro, Jenna Florance, Nikki Dow and Lindsey Allario. “I make it clear every year that the slate is kind of cleaned off for next year,” Compson said. “We do not ‘move up’ as we go through our years, we need to ‘step up’. No players should take anything for granted for next season. Everyone needs to work to improve.”

Senior Quintin Wells has been a major factor all season for the Devils and Gagliardi said senior linebacker Nick Faniola has been an important role model for the younger players. “[Faniola] has had two injury-plagued seasons,” Gagliardi said. “But he keeps coming back. All the seniors just love football.” Gagliardi hopes that spirit will carry over. The Blue Devils will need that kind of passion for the sport to improve in the future. Plainville has played against teams this season with big rosters. But, even more importantly, they’ve seen programs which have had strong efforts in the offseason. Teams like Bloomfield had 35 players in the weight room in the offseason, East Catholic 30, Conard 45, Gagliardi said. Plainville may not reach those numbers, but Gagliardi would like the participation to increase in the off-season. “You have to have that [desire] to get better, compete, represent the community and the school,” Gagliardi said. “You can’t create passion.” The Blue Devils are trying to take something out of every game and they have one more classroom to enter, on Thanksgiving, against Northwest Catholic. The Indians are 8-1.

Business Briefs Plainville resident earns national professional certification

Bryan Byrnes

Plainville resident Bryan Byrnes, a sales associate at Wildman’s Flooring America store in Woodbury, has obtained his professional Certificate of Excellence from Flooring American/Flooring Canada. Byrnes successfully passed Flooring America/Flooring Canada’s extensive training and testing programs in March 2009. “Every one of our staff members, including owners, are certified as flooring experts,” said Tom Pelletier, owner of the Wildman’s Flooring America showroom store in Woodbury, and co-owner of the Flooring America store in Prospect. “We all are required to pass extensive training and testing programs to become certified sales professionals by Flooring America/Flooring Canada. This training includes product knowledge, sales and installation training both through Flooring America’s exclusive Online University as well as numerous manufacturer sponsored seminars held throughout the year. Flooring America has a strong edge over competitors in the state of Connecticut because of this training and testing.” Pelletier received his certification in March 2009. Sales associate, Suzanne Munsey of Naugatuck, also received her Certificate of Excellence in March. Flooring America is an affordable supplier of flooring options that include carpet, hardwood, laminate tile, ceramic tile, vinyl flooring and area rugs. “All our personnel,” Pelletier said, “are highly-trained to assist every customer throughout every step of the flooring process.” With sales volume more than $1.55 billion, Flooring America/Flooring Canada have more than 575 member-owned floor covering stores throughout the United States and Canada. Flooring America/ Flooring Canada is a division of CCA Global Partners, the world’s largest flooring group, provides member store owners with exclusive brands and warranty programs. “Because every Flooring America store is locally owned,” said Pelletier, “each store owner is personally invested in providing the highest quality of service. We are all entrepreneurs who stand behind every product and service we provide. Our names are attached to every aspect of our business. It is one of the many reasons we all welcome these ongoing certification programs, and annual training and testing programs so we can effectively keep up with consumer needs.”

CitizenReal Estate Leaf collection is under way and the roadways department is asking town residents to remove brush, sticks, grass clippings and stones from leaf piles. Town workers are having a difficult time collecting the leaf piles because such items have been deposited as well. The vacuum machine will not pick up foreign material and it clogs the machine, slowing down the operation. Piles containing grass, brush or other items will not be collected. Bagged leaves are not acceptable and will not be picked up by the roadways department or Waste Material Trucking Co., which picks up weekly trash. Residents may bring leaves to the transfer station on Granger Lane Monday through Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. during November and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The last day the transfer station will be opened is Saturday, Dec. 5. It will then be closed for the winter months until early next spring. For further information, call the Department of Physical Services at (860) 793-0221, ext. 208
