Plan to eliminate citizen’s forum rejected By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen

At the April 2 Town Council meeting, the proposal put forth by Councilman Dan Hurley to eliminate one citizen’s forum per month was rejected. The proposal, brought forth at the March 19 council meeting, stated that the Town Council would amend its Rules and Procedures to say that the citizen’s forum, which normally lasts 30 minutes prior to each bi-weekly Town Council meeting, would take place on the first Monday of each month. The council would use the time allotted for the forum at the second monthly meeting to

discuss things such as financial matters and schedule work sessions. In the forum’s place, the council suggested having one council member available the third Thursday of each month to meet with individuals one-on-one. Many residents spoke out against this proposal to say it was unjust. “You work for us,” said longtime Plainville resident Maryellen Wazorko. “Citizen’s forum provides a couple of things. It’s not only a place for residents to bring concerns but, more importantly, a venue in which to bring concerns up in a public manner. With that comes accountability, a priceless enti-

Mixed feelings at budget hearing By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen

Over 50 people showed up to the April 2 Town Council public budget hearing, which lasted nearly two hours. There was an outpouring of support from parents, teachers and taxpayers who urged the Town Council to restore $200,000 that had been removed from the Board of Education’s budget request. But many who attended said they are struggling financially and can’t afford an even deeper increase in their taxes. The mood in the room was a stark difference from the March 8 meeting, where everyone was all smiles as council members and residents agreed the BOE budget seemed fair; instead, people

ty that would be lost if this idea was pursued.” Wazorko said she did not wish to share her concerns with one single council person because she did not trust him or her to bring her concerns forward and express her ideas properly. “If you don’t have time to listen, as an elected official, then you shouldn’t be on the council,” Wazorko said. “As to concerns by some that

they have to listen to the same people every two weeks, shame on you.” Fran Heap said she didn’t like the citizen’s forum to begin with because it wasn’t considered part of the Town Council meeting. As such, the citizen’s forums are not broadcast on Nutmeg Television’s government channel. “I felt it was an effort to stifle the people and to make sure their voices were not

Raising money for Ethan’s cause By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen Ethan Amundsen is three years old. He has a younger brother named Zachary, likes the superhero team, The Avengers, is a little shy around new people and just started preschool last month, which

he loves. Playing in his living room, munching goldfish crackers, it would be impossible for anyone to know he has chronic kidney disease. “He was basically born with one functioning kidney. As far as kidney disease goes, when you’re

on both sides of the issue were angry and frustrated. The BOE initially asked for an increase of $577,309; under the FY13 proposed budget passed on March 26, the BOE would receive an increase of $377,309 or 1.15 percent. Council members said they felt the compromise was fair, particularly because enrollment in the Plainville school system had decreased by 343 students over the past 12 years (roughly two students per grade, per year). “Trying to be aware of those that are struggling, we lowered the budget,” Councilman Dan F. Hurley said. “That’s why I think it was necessary to have done it.” BOE Chairwoman Andrea Saunders said, “While I didn’t anticipate [the cut] I cannot deny that this is now a re-

born with one, you just have to be very protective of it,” his father, Plainville High School social studies teacher Allan Amundsen said. “It requires regular check-ups and things like that. It really doesn’t keep him from doing anything. See Ethan, page 23

heard on the television,” she said. Heap said she was even further disheartened, however, to hear the council’s comments regarding cutting one forum per month. “People are supposed to be able to petition the government as a whole,” she said. “It’s an honor; it’s a privilege to listen to the comments of

Another view of Plainville By Ruth Sharp Hummel Special to The Citizen

How many readers saw a beautiful blue and silver hel-

icopter flying over town, seemingly in circles on March 21? Well! That was me taking photos of the town. My good

friend, Paul Blanchette, was kind enough to take me up for over two hours in “Pegasus,” as his ‘copter is named. Igor Sikorsky told me that Helio was the Greek god of the sun, which makes sense to me.

While in the helicopter, I snapped photos of the town garage, airport, center of town, historic center, nature park and a lot of others. Things look very different from the air and, though Paul always knew just where

we were, I didn’t. I tried to locate the remains of the aquaduct by which canal boats crossed the Farmington River, just above Farmington. As many times as

Rep. Boukus hails funding to clean up polluted property

State Rep. Elizabeth “Betty” Boukus, who represents Plainville, Bristol and New Britain in the legislature, said she is pleased the State Bond Commission has approved $2 million in brownfield remediation loans for the property at 10 New Britain Ave. in Plainville. A total of $16 million in Connecticut Department of Economic Development municipal brownfield grants and loans through the Municipal Brownfield Grant Program was awarded across the state. Boukus said, “Brownfield remediation creates jobs and cleans up blighted properties

by turning them into productive sites with an opportunity for economic growth.” Brownfields are former factory, mill and other sites that can be converted to productive use after environmental remediation. The Municipal Brownfield Grant Program provides funding to towns or their economic development agencies to clean up untreated brownfields and low interest loans to property owners with the goal of producing significant economic development benefits for the municipality. Boukus was joined at the Bond Commission meeting by Plainville’s Director of

Planning and Economic Development Mark DeVoe, who was able speak with Gov. Dannel Malloy and DECD Commissioner Catherine Smith. For more information about the application process or other brownfield redevelopment programs visit DECD’s Office of Brownfield Remediation and Development at www.ctbrownfields. gov. The office is Connecticut’s one-stop resource for information on the programs and services available for brownfield redevelopment in the state. Submitted by Todd Murphy

Mothers of Multiples provides advice and support By Ken DiMauro Special to The Citizen

The Greater Bristol Mothers of Multiples organization, established in 1982, has more than 45 members, some

group is beneficial to both mothers and dads placed in a situation where, instead of having one new baby, now they have an additional child -- or more -- who needs feeding, changing, comforting, clothes and furniture. Mayer and her husband Peter have twin daughters, Thea and Hannah, both 6 ½. Their daughters are fraternal twins and each has her own personality and interests. That’s a similar experi-

of whom are parents from Plainville. The group recently met for an Easter-themed event held at the Bristol Public Library. President of the organization, Rebecca Mayer said the

ence to that of Plainville twins Caitlin and Paige Stilwill. They enjoy going to school and have individual friends. They like their own hobbies and respective interests. However, Caitlin and Paige’s births, two minutes apart at Hartford Hospital on Dec. 2, 2004, were statistically unusual at only a 25 percent likelihood, according to their mother, Vicky Stilwill. The girls were born as a re-

sult of in vitro fertilization process. When Stilwill found out she was having a multiple birth, she became a member of the Greater Bristol Mothers of Multiples. Stilwill and her husband, Thom, who attended the group’s April 7 Spring Party at Bristol Public Library, with their daughters, described a positive support organization for parents and their multiple

Photo display A photo display titled “Here and There” will be at the Plainville Public Library during the month of April with a reception for the photographer on Saturday, April 14, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. More than 30 photos were taken “here” in central Connecticut and “there” in other

states and abroad by Plainville resident Dennis Colgan and his wife, Laurel. They have captured images over the years of everything from shots in their backyard and around the neighborhood to vacations up the coast of California, down the coast of Maine, in Italy, Hawaii and spots in between that bring together this exhibit’s theme. A native of Providence, R. I. and now a Plainville resident, Dennis Colgan was bitten by the photography bug in the early 1970s when he bought his first SLR camera and he’s been snapping away ever since. By the early 80s he was specializing in black and white photography in his own darkroom and was making archival prints for the Middletown Preservation Society. In 1983 he opened Picture Fame, a custom picture framing shop in Plainville and had little time for camera work. He returned to his hobby with the advent of digital

children. The organization offers support and educational programs and classes. For example, a program held April 4 discussed childhood allergies and sensitivities. At the local organization’s website – www.bristolmoms.org – one of the articles gives advice on how to entertain and keep multiple siblings busy. Mayer said events are geared not only to moms but the kids and dads, too. Often, the events offer a boost in morale or fun things for the families to do such as the Spring Party at the library. Not only did the moms, dads and kids get to interact for a couple of hours, but they ate lunch, had an egg hunt and posed for photos with the Easter bunny and a Mother Goose character. Besides Plainville and Bristol members, families from Southington, Berlin, Middletown, Avon, Torrington and Farmington participate as well. There are six organizations in Connecticut, with each affiliated with the national organization. There are many misconceptions about having multiple children born at once, said the Stilwills, such as one twin becoming ill or injured and the other knowing about

it. So far, they haven’t seen this develop, but rather, the unhurt or healthier sister will express empathy for her sibling, the Stilwills said. The Mayers said that like the subjects of the fictionalized television series, “The Patty Duke Show,” from the mid-1960s, their daughters can be described as “different as night and day.” The Sitwells encourage their daughters Caitlin and Paige to have different interests and hobbies and that has worked well for the girls. They are in separate classes at Linden Street School and spend much of their school day apart. “They both, however, are interested in dance,” Vicky Sitwell said.

the people.” Marilyn Shorette said perhaps there were only a handful of people who spoke at each meeting, but that number might grow. “I’m proud that I’m getting the courage to be able to be up here. Maybe my voice doesn’t shake as much tonight as it did last time. But I am an important voice,” she said. “I help pay the taxes in this town, educate those children, pave the streets, pick up the rubbish. I have a right to be heard and it should be televised.” Becky Tyrell said she might like the opportunity to get up and make an announcement about events around town, but that she feels restricted under the current format. “I would urge you to put the comments back [into the meeting], let them be televised and open them up. Let people talk about what they want to talk about,” Tyrell said. “I think it’s a better representation of the town of Plainville.” The council later voted on whether to accept the amendment to the Rules and Procedures. Councilwoman Quinn Christopher said she did not support the change and never did. “I ran for this position knowing I would have to attend meetings, spend time and make the commitment that comes with holding a public office,” she said. “I am more than happy to spend twice a month for half an hour listening to citizens’ comments and concerns.” Councilwoman Katherine Pugliese said, “When this idea was floated before the last council meeting, Councilman Wazorko and Councilwoman Christopher told me before the meeting that they were perfectly in favor of it. They certainly have a right to change their minds. But before the meeting, I did poll all of the council people and they were both in favor.” It was ultimately voted down. There are currently no plans to integrate the forum with the meeting and have it televised.

Letters to the Editor

Budget numbers

To the editor: Every year the proposed town budget is presented in The Citizen and I am hoping it will be again this year. I have in the past asked for and again am asking that the BOE portion of the budget be presented in a line item fashion, not just a total budget amount. After all, it is 61 percent of the budget. The more I thought of it, the more I thought I would present it myself. The line item numbers I am presenting come directly from the 2012-13 Board of Education approved budget booklet which you can be obtain by request from the BOE. Bear in mind, the town council has reduced the BOE budget by $200,000 and that is not reflected in these numbers: Salaries . . . . . . .$21,091,902 Benefits/etc . . . .$5,308,477 Supplies . . . . . . . .$2,175,813

Equipment . . . . . . . .$43,100 Purchased services . . . . . . . .$4,647,812 I am presenting this information not for the taxpayer to approve or disapprove, merely to give information on which to base your voting decision. Remember, these numbers constitute 61percent of the town budget and just providing a single BOE budget amount is not enough information for the taxpayer. I will conclude by saying these numbers represent what some feel it takes to operate the Board of Education, so please let us address it as such and not attempt to continually justify BOE budgets based on annual “the children will be hurt” scenario. Lou Frangos Plainville

Disgusted To the editor: I was disgusted by the ma-

nipulative emotionalism, the dishonesty and the blatant self-interest displayed by employees and supporters of the Board of Education at the April 2 Town Council meeting. They mostly sat en masse and one by one repeated the same talking points over and over. They characterized a projected $377,309 increase to the BOE’s budget as $200,000 cut and then claimed this “cut” was arbitrarily made in some mythical “back room” by five (i.e., Republican) councilors. The truth is that the requested $577,309 increase to the BOE’s budget was reduced by $200,000; hardly a “cut” when compared to the 2012 budget. Their technique is always to ask for more money than necessary in order to insure an increase in their budget. When was the last time the BOE was content to submit a budget equal to the previous year’s budget?

They patronized the taxpayer by saying they “understood” the difficulties of making ends meet in this bad economy but then said we needed to understand that the students would “suffer” if they didn’t get their way, proving that they really don’t understand the plight of the taxpayer who is still reeling from trying to absorb the brunt of Gov. Malloy’s one and a half billion dollar tax increase. A very questionable state law compels Plainville to keep whatever budget is enacted as the new year’s minimum budget, meaning the council’s proposed increase will total over $1 million in just three years. With this in mind, the council should always act very prudently in approving increases to the

BOE’s budget. The “suffering” student is always used as a gun to the taxpayer’s head. I am pro-teacher and proeducation but the essence of good education consists of good teachers who love to teach and students with the desire to learn, not the amount of money thrown at the system. Anyone advocating for the financial responsibility is branded as being “hostile” by the supporters of the BOE who arrogantly assume they someone have the moral high ground. $32,067,104 is not enough for a small town like Plainville? Emotionalizing the discourse so never lends itself to producing rational thinking or decisions. David Spencer Plainville

Leadership conference

A group of 25 Plainville High School students, together with staff members John Zadnik, Jennifer Jambard, and Jen Micowski, attended the Spring State Leadership Conference sponsored by the Connecticut Association of Schools and the Connecticut Association of Student Councils. PHS senior Marcquille Johnson served as President of the State Advisory Board of Student Leaders that planned the annual conference. In addition, Marcquille sang the National Anthem at the start of the conference. PHS senior Alle Caponigro was also a member of the State Advisory Board, and presented certificates to student leaders who were workshop presenters. The PHS S.A.L.T. contingent was recognized as an Honor School at the event, by meeting a number of criteria set forth by CAS and the State Leadership Board.

Budget Continued from page 1 ality.” With the money it is currently anticipating, Saunders said the BOE will be able to replace tennis courts, implement a new math program for elementary schools, replace outdated technology and get a new cooling tower for the middle school. “I’m confident that the board will make the best possible choices for the students in Plainville,” she said. Tabatha Manafort, who agreed with the restoration of the $200,000 to the BOE budget, asked what would happen if the budget was re-

jected. Would the budget be cut further or would the council consider returning the $200,000 to the initial BOE budget? “I would have to wait and see what happens at that time. I won’t answer that right now,” said Chairwoman Katherine M. Pugliese, who agreed (at Manafort’s request) that the council would consider including an advisory question on the poll so that voters could indicate if they were rejecting the budget because they wanted it to be decreased or increased. Mary Couture asked how the $200,000 cut would impact each taxpayer. “I want to know how much money I’m going to get in my

pocket,” she said. Councilman Christopher J. Wazorko estimated that each person would save approximately $20. Hurley said the $20 taxpayers would need to pay in order to restore the original BOE budget doesn’t include the roughly $30 increase to the taxes that each person would already have to pay. “You’re basically saving pennies, but you’re going to hurt a lot,” Couture said. “The kids of today shouldn’t

have to suffer because we’re not willing to give a little bit more.” Maryellen Wazorko said the council seemed stuck on eliminating $200,000, but she didn’t understand why that number was chosen. “I, for one, am more than willing to pay my $20 and someone else’s $20 to have a school system that’s a little ahead of the wave than behind,” said Wazorko, who’s lived in the town for over 50 years. Wazorko said she has

seen the school system fall into dire straits and doesn’t want that to happen again. “What happens the day I want to sell my house? I want a school system that is a solid one. I want one that’s growing,” she said. Several agreed with the BOE cut, citing the poor economic climate and rough financial times. Dominick D’Onofrio said, “I hear a lot about kids suf-

Continued from page 15 fering, but a lot of seniors are suffering.” John Kisluk said that he’s totally opposed to the budget as presented, but not against the BOE. “Maybe this year they will suffer, but that’s fair because we’re all suffering,” he said. “But the reason I’m rejecting this budget is because of the

town side.” There is not enough transparency in the town’s budget, he said, which could stand to scale back costs in many areas. Carolyn Coughlin agreed that times are tough but said she didn’t want that to impact the school’s money. “I know when I go to the pump and I fill my car, it’s a lot of money. And then in a week it’s all gone. Then I go to

the grocery store and I spent a lot of money there. But then it’s all gone,” she said. “But when we use our money for educating and for Plainville’s children, I consider that an investment.” The all-day budget vote is April 24 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Plainville Fire Depart-

Softball coaches, players agree: Pushing the pitching circle back no big deal By Sean Krofssik Special to The Citizen

A year after the high school softball rubber was moved back from 40 feet to 43 feet away from home plate, the consensus among most area softball coaches is that the change has been positive for the game. The rule change was made to improve offense, while also taking the pitcher’s safety into account. “The change makes the kids more involved in the game,” Southington coach John Bores said. “I think it’s a good thing. I think the ball is being put into play more. It makes for a better game with less kids striking out.” Bores added that any change in the offensive output has not been drastic. Berlin coach Jason Pires was all for the mound dis-

In an attempt to add more offense to games, the high school softball rubber was moved from 40 to 43 feet away from home plate a year ago. tance change when it was proposed and he hasn’t swayed, saying “it has made softball a more team game.”

“It helps to prevent a team with a dominant pitcher, and nothing else, from overwhelming teams. More bal-

ance is needed,” said Pires. “It definitely rewards a more complete team. I think it has leveled the playing field a bit. The great pitchers are still great, but you have to be great now to dominate.” Plainville’s Jen Micowski is another coach in favor of the mound change. “I think the change to 43 feet has really put the advantage in the batters’ hands. They have that extra second to see the ball and determine whether to swing or take the pitch,” said Micowski. “I think it has increased the scores of many games throughout the state.” Maloney pitcher Alle Sabith said the change wasn’t a big adjustment for her— in the circle or at the plate. “It didn’t affect me too much because I knew about it ahead of time so I had plen-

ty of time to practice and get ready for last season,” she said. “It changes where the pitches break. It was a little bit harder, but I think it was the same for me. It definitely brought more offense to the game. It gives the batter a little more time to read the pitch. When you are at the plate, you notice it, but it’s been a year and I am used to it.” Sabith will pitch at Division III Western Connecticut State next year. College rubbers are also 43 feet from the plate. Maloney coach Scott Aresco was a strong proponent of the increased distance. The veteran coach also said he believes the safety precautions should go further.

Plainville 9 off to up and down start By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen Two straight defeats is no way to start a season – or welcome a new coach. So the Plainville High School baseball team made sure that didn’t occur. The young Blue Devils shook off a sloppy, season-opening loss to knock off St. Paul, 53, Saturday at Alumni Field. “We came back against St. Paul a whole different team,” PHS first-year coach Lou Mandeville said. “We came back tougher, a lot more confident. We came back with fire in our eyes. We came back believing in ourselves; and it showed.” Plainville generated 11 hits in the victory. In their first game this spring – a 5-3 loss to host Rocky Hill – the locals managed just three hits. Against St. Paul, Nick Moshier, Tom Dinda and Tyler Pina each went 2-for-3 with a RBI, and Dinda scored three times. “Saturday was a totally different atmosphere,” Mandeville reiterated. Matt Thomas went six innings, allowed

three hits and struck out six in the winning effort. Despite allowing just one earned run in four innings of work against Rocky Hill, Dinda was tagged with the loss in that one. “He didn’t pitch badly,” said Mandeville. “He’s a contact pitcher, so when you’re playing defense behind him, you better be ready to make the plays. We didn’t get that done in the first couple innings.” The Blue Devils dug themselves a big hole in Rocky Hill, and never recovered. “We didn’t get out of the gate very well,” Mandeville pointed out. “We made a few errors the first couple of innings and gave them four unearned runs right off the bat. So we were playing catch up baseball.” Plainville looked more cohesive by the middle innings, but the damage was done. “We have some kids without much varsity experience. I think that came out a little bit,” said Mandeville. “Overall, it wasn’t horrible. But we would have liked a better result.”

Blue Devil Notes

Tennis team rolls; four wins for Caponigro By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen The tennis team didn’t have a great pre-season, but was ready to go for the real thing, as it shut out an outmatched Bloomfield squad, 7-0, to start the year. PHS coach Chuck Radda said his team’s best performance of the day was turned in by Sam Zaza. The locals’ No. 1 singles player won her match, 6-1, 6-1. “There were quite a few long rallies,” Radda pointed out, “but Sam’s superior serving and her ability to move her opponent around made the difference.” Radda also liked what he saw at No. 3 singles, where the Lady Blue Devils’ Gio-

lay that afternoon. Against Bristol Eastern, Plainville was without the services of distance runner Lexxi Carroll and jumper Paula Frejlich. Both were out with injury. In a meet that wasn’t decided until the final event, the boys track and field team outlasted Bristol Eastern, 77-73, to improve to 1-0. Andrew Rottier led the Blue Devils with three victories (800, 1,600, 3,200), while teammate Malik Gordon earned two wins (300 hurdles, high jump). PHS coach Shaun Berard pointed out that with a break here or there, the locals could have run away with the victory. Instead, the meet was a barnburner. “It may not be so obvious watching a track meet from the stands,” the coach said, “but they can be exciting and close. One close event can tip the balance.” Gordon and Kevin Waite finished one-two in high jump to ultimately seal the deal. At press time, the softball team owned a record of 2-1.

bounced back to knock off Farmington, 14-4. Arnold earned the pitching win, and Katy Dressel, Dalke, Lindsey Allario and Lancaster powered the victors at the plate. The golf team came up short to Torrington in its season-opener, 169-179, but PHS coach Steve Guerriero said his guys played pretty well in the blustery conditions and on an unfamiliar course, Torrington Country Club. “I’m optimistic that we had a good start for the 2012 season,” Guerriero said. Tyler Goodall paced the Blue Devils with a 43. Rounding out the PHS scoring slate was Richard Hanson (45), Steve Boland (45) and Andrew Chapman (46).

The locals opened the year with a 22-1 victory over Bloomfield. Leading the way in that one was winning pitcher Jacqui Wuchert, Megan Johnson (3-for-4, RBI, 2 runs) and Erika Kozak (3-for-3, 3 runs). From there, Plainville lost a heart-breaker to North Branford, 2-1. The winning run came in the seventh inning. Lady Blue Devil pitcher Tabi Arnold turned in good work in the loss, and Johnson came through with a single, and scored her team’s lone run on a sacrifice fly from Cheyenne Dalke. Rachel Lancaster doubled for Plainville. The Lady Blue Devils

Tony Lo Pizzo had a triple for the Blue Devils, and teammates Shane Pugliese and Chris Kuzia drove in one run apiece. Heading into Week 2, Mandeville was feeling optimistic about his team’s chances this spring. “I feel good about the group of kids we have,” he said. “I just encourage them to come out and work hard every day, believe in themselves and keep moving forward. Adversity is going to happen, but you have to find a way to fight through it, and find a way to get the job done.” Plainville started this week off on the wrong foot, falling hard to visiting Conard, 10-0, Monday. Kuzia had the Blue Devils’ offensive highlight on this day, a double. Pitcher Brian Dostaler took the loss.

vanna Rosetti prevailed, 6-1, 6-1. Also registering wins against Bloomfield was Chanel Macklin (6-0, 6-0) and Natalia Kacpryzk (6-0, 6-0), and the doubles teams of Sarah Kane and Nikki Dow (6-0, 6-0), Amanda La and Melinda Le (6-1, 6-1) and Becca Lauzier and Kelly Farina (6-0, 6-1). The girls track and field team came up short against Bristol Eastern, 73-59, in its season-opener, but PHS coach Robin Mills saw some positives in the loss. “It was a good first meet, with many times and distances close to where their times were last year at the end of the season,” she said. Alle Caponigro was the Lady Blue Devils’ big pointgetter against Bristol Eastern, besting the field in shot put, discus and javelin. Teammate Sheliah Newcity placed first in the 300 hurdles, and second in the 100 hurdles. Also, Caponigro and Newcity teamed with Isabella D’Onofrio and Megan Cameron to win the 4x400 re-

Golf Fitness Corner

The importance of a pre-round warm-up By Eric Lunt Special to The Citizen

Due to the abbreviated winter, the golf season is officially here, and with it comes the excitement Lunt of getting out there for the first time. An early start to the season also means golfers are more susceptible to injuries. But early-season injury can easily be prevented if you allow yourself the time to do a proper warm up. Many of the common injuries we see in golf are pre-

ventable by taking a few minutes to warm-up prior to your round. We are all guilty of jumping out of the car, rushing to the first tee, taking a few practice swings and hoping the opening drive finds the fairways. I am here to tell you to make it a priority to warmup prior to hitting that first tee shot. Golf is a dynamic sport that requires ballistic movements, where your muscles are doing a lot of contracting and lengthening. Because of the dynamic nature of the golf swing, if your muscles cannot properly lengthen during the swing, you are setting yourself up for a bad round or, more im-

be used as part of a postround cool-down, or if you are looking to gain more flexibility. Some examples of good exercises to perform in a dynamic warm-up include; neck rotations, arm circles, wrist flexion/extension, standing trunk rotations, lateral side bends, standing straight leg kicks, arm overhead deep squats and alternating wide stance toe touches. These should be done for 10 to 15 repetitions in each direction, and it is important that you perform these in a controlled manner where there are no quick ballistic/jerky motions. I am a believer that hitting balls on the range

should be a part of the warm-up process, but only after you have dedicated 5 to 10 minutes of dynamic stretching. If you do not perform a warm-up, you may find yourself settling into your round by the fifth or sixth hole. And remember, you should never feel embarrassed doing any of these warm-up exercises at the golf course, as you are helping yourself prevent injury while setting an example for other players. Eric Lunt works at Timberlin Golf Course in Kensington and is a Certified Golf Fitness Instructor through the Titleist Performance Institute.

and she said she wouldn’t mind if all of her players did the same. “All of my infielders wear mouth pieces,” Wodatch said. “Some of them wear masks. It should be a preference. The ball comes off the bat quick. I don’t want to scare them, but I would put a thought in their head about wearing a mask.” Wodatch agrees with moving the mound back for safety

reasons, but she’s still not sure how young high school pitchers will handle the extra three feet. “I just want to make sure it’s a safe distance for 14- or 15-year-old girls,” Wodatch said. “Their arms have to get stronger to throw those extra three feet.” Overall, Wodatch said the mound change is a positive. “You never want to see anyone get hit in the face,” Wodatch said. “After some pitchers windup, they could move up seven or eight feet (towards home).” -Nick Carroll contributed to this article.

portantly, injury. Sustaining an injury early on can nag you all season and can also affect you off the course and make those once pain-free activities not so enjoyable. Many people associate a warm-up as just stretching. That is not the case. The stretching that is involved in a warm-up is called dynamic stretching. This is stretching that is done while in motion, and the main goal is to help increase blood flow to the working muscles involved in the swing. This is not your typical kind of stretching where you would hold a position for a length of time; that is called static stretching, and should only

It just comes with some dietary restrictions and constant monitoring by his doctors at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.” Ethan’s disease fueled a desire for Allan and his wife, Whitney, a clinician at a drug and alcohol rehab facility and a stay-at-home-mom to get involved with the National Kidney Foundation, which funds research and education for kidney disease and aids families who are facing transplant. The Amundsens, with family and friends, started to participate in the foundation’s annual Kidney Walk under the name Team Ethan.

Last year, they had a team of 30 who raised around $2200 and the year before they collected $1800. This year, they hope to hit $3500 with the help of a fundraising event on April 14. At 7 p.m., a benefit concert is scheduled at the Middle School of Plainville, 150 Northwest Drive., to raise money for the National Kidney Foundation and Team Ethan. It was Allan’s sister, Sharon Amundsen, who came up with the idea. “She wanted to help our walk team this year and see if she could do a separate fundraiser,” Amundsen said.
