Organizers bank on good weather for this weekend’s balloon festival By Dan Brechlin The Plainville Citizen

In 2009, for the first time its 25-year history, the annual hot air balloon festival fell subject to a tropical storm, preventing the balloons from launching, and putting a damper on the weekend event. This weekend, however, calls for sunny skies over Norton Park for the 26th annual festival, as hosted by the Plainville Fire Company.

The event’s opening day, Friday, is expected to be in the mid-70s and sunny, according to weather reports. Saturday will be another sunny day in the high 70s and the festival will close Sunday, with more sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid-80s. “It’s supposed to be a nice weekend so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed,” said Fire Company Capt. Tom Moschini.

The event, since it began in 1985, has expanded each year. “We started small with two or three balloons,” Moschini said. “Now it’s 10 to 15 balloons and all weekend long.” The festival, which is in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of the fire company, opens Friday evening at 5 p.m. At dusk will be the balloon glow, in which the balloons illuminate the

night sky, with music by Avenue Groove from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. At the culmination of the performance will be fireworks. Saturday morning’s activities will kick-off at 6 a.m. with a balloon launch, as well as another at 6 p.m. From noon until 6 p.m., festival goers will be able to enjoy a classic car show and a sock hop put on by DJ Brett Clay. From noon until 2 p.m. there will also be live music from

The Aquatudes. Saturday evening will fea-

Upcoming changes in regulations to Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen address storm water problems By Dan Brechlin The Plainville Citizen

Plainville was awarded a $50,000 grant in 2009 by the state of Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection in order to review its land use regulations and investigate ways to better deal with storm water runoff and the issues that accompany it. The results are in, and according to Mark DeVoe, Director of Planning and Economic Development, some major changes are expected in terms of reducing flooding and better managing the storm water runoff. DeVoe said the town has reformatted the zoning regulations in order to accept the proposed changes. “Our goal is to improve groundwater recharge and reduce flooding,” DeVoe said. See Drain, page 30

Policy addresses social networking issues, superintendent says By Dan Brechlin The Plainville Citizen

Web sites like Facebook and Twitter have changed the way people talk, interact and communicate. People can post their thoughts and feelings with their friends, having the ability to comment or “like” the action, others can “tweet” an interesting link and some write about what they are doing. Some posts can be meaningless, some can have meaning and others can simply cause controversy. Former Plainville Assistant Superintendent David Telesca, who was officially named Windsor Locks superintendent earlier this year, wrote on his Facebook page the first day on the job, July 1. His post said he slept in until 10 a.m. and then browsed the Internet because offices were closed that day, according to a story by See Social, page 31

In the back row are Scott Organek, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center program director, and Anthony DeCrosta. Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen, located at the corner of East and Broad streets in Plainville, raised a total of $1,891 for Children's Miracle Network, which benefits Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford. Dairy Queen received two trophies that day from CCMC and a current cardiology patient, Olivia. First was for “Growing by Leaps & Bounds,” highest percent increase in fundraising efforts for Connecticut Children’s through Children’s Miracle Network, and second, “DQ of the Year,” signifying that this location had the most successful fundraising year for CCMC through the network. During the event, which was held Aug. 5, Dairy Queen had a petting zoo, pony rides, a bounce house and face painting. The staff at DQ would like to thank everyone who came to Miracle Treat Day to support the Children’s Miracle Network.

Plainville road project receives federal grant

The Town of Plainville was awarded a grant from the federal government as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 for the reconstruction of Camp Street from Washington Street in Bristol to Bradley Street. Beginning on or about Sept. 7, RED Technologies, of Bloomfield, and subcontractors will begin construction

activities encompassing the excavation of the existing pavement and the installation of a new roadway surfaces. During construction, motorists can expect a gravel roadway surface. Additionally, the construction activities will involve the replacement of the existing bituminous curbing, catch basin grates and frames. Construction activities are anticipat-

ed to continue for approximately 10 weeks, Nov. 15. Construction is likely to occur mostly during the hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Motorists can expect delays. No nighttime construction is projected. It is also likely vehicle traffic at times will be restricted to only residents, (local traffic only), and emergency vehicles during the

hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A detour route will be established and identified. Motorists should consider an alternate route during these

times. Anyone having questions may contact the Plainville Engineering Department at (860) 793-0221c ext. 208.

launch, and the festival closes three hours later. All weekend, the festival will feature food from the fire company, as well as a craft show. Proceeds from the event go back to the community Moschini said. “”This is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” he said. “The money goes toward the food pantry, nonprofit organizations, to graduating high school seniors. We usually give out about five or six thousand dollars in scholarships.” Because heavy traffic is expected for the event, police said the entrance to the event would be from South Washington Street (Route 177) and there will be no parking on South Washington Street from Broad Street to Townline Road. There will be limited handicapped parking and

will be on a first-come, firstserve basis and will be in front of the viewing area on the south side of the park, as well as the first row of the swimming pool parking lot. Those who live on Norton Trail will need a resident’s pass, which can be obtained through the fire department. Upon exiting the park, guests will leave via South Washington Street and be directed both north and south. Any additional parking questions should be directed to Sgt. Charles Smedick of the Traffic Division at (860) 747-1616. For additional information on the event, visit the Plainville Fire Company’s Web site plainvillefireco.com.

As we are weeks into the hurricane season, the Office of Emergency Management in Plainville wants to remind all residents that basic preparations need to be taken if a storm affects Plainville and surrounding towns. Residents need to take precautions, have basic supplies on hand and be able to sustain a time where there may be no power or they must relocate due to damage to homes. Keep a minimum of threeday supply of non-perishable food and water. Even if this community is not directly af-

fected by any storm, your life may be disrupted from the daily routine. You may need shelter at home for a few days. Roads and stores may be closed to civilian traffic; electricity and water supplies may be interrupted. Add flashlights and battery powered radio to hear the latest instructions from local and state authorities. Don’t forget extra batteries, a blanket for each family member, a first aid kit, and manual can opener. Maintain at least a threeto five-day supply of medicine with you. Don’t forget the supply of food, water and medicine for your pets. A family communication plan

Base, Ala., participating in field training, as well as a mock Air and Space Expeditionary Force deployment, mandatory for all individuals pursuing a commission as an officer through Air Force ROTC. During this 28-day training, the cadets are pushed to the limit through stressful and physical situations that evaluate their ability to become an officer and help develop their team building skills. “I am here refining my leadership and teamwork skills,” said Fischer, who graduated in 2003 from Plainville High School. Fischer is one of almost 2,400 cadets from colleges and universities nationwide that will participate in one of six rotations at Maxwell this summer. The course is divid-

The cadets are then airlifted by a C-130 aircraft to Camp Shelby, Hattiesburg, Miss., where they will experience a mock deployment, simulating what it would be like in Iraq or Afghanistan. Here, Fischer and the other cadets will conduct convoy missions, learn basic warfare tactics, shoot the M-16 assault rifle, and march over enemy terrain. For Fischer, the transition from cadet to eventual commissioning as a second lieutenant will be a challenging one. “Overall, the course has not been extremely challenging, however the lessons learned are going to benefit me in the future,” Fischer said.

Kids going to school? Boost them with prayer By Tiana Welles Special to The Citizen

Take time to pray with your children before school every day. It takes about 22 seconds. The Bible says “Pray without ceasing” in 1 Thessalonians 5:17; and “Train up your child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” in Proverbs 22:6. With all you already do for

them in the morning, what are 22 more seconds? It may be the most valuable moments of their day. Find a time that fits your morning routine. We pray before breakfast. Other great times are while the kids eat breakfast, wait for the bus, or in the car if you drive them. Turn the TV or radio off for one minute during a commercial. Don’t know what to pray?

Faith Briefs Mums, books and bake sale

Prayer is easy. Stick with the basics: “Father, Thank you for this day. Please help Michael and Ashley have a good day at school today. Please watch over them in all they do. Please help Joe & I be excellent parents to them, and help us all to walk in Your love and truth. In Jesus’ name we pray and trust. Amen.” See Prayer, page 13

Letters to the Editor

Vandalism must stop

To the editor: Recently someone thoughtlessly broke the angel statue at the Petit Memorial Gazebo in Norton Park. This is very upsetting. This is not the first time vandals have chosen the gazebo. The hanging plants have been town down and thrown in the canal. People have also carved into the wood of the gazebo. This is a memorial to honor Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters Haley and Michaela, whose lives were tragically taken from them during a home invasion in July of 2007. As the third anniversary of the senseless tragedy passes, I would hope whomever has been thoughtlessly vandalizing the memorial (that the Petit family visits frequently) will think before they act. As

a community, let’s take the time to keep the Petit family in our thoughts and prayers as the trial will soon begin. Please, if anyone has any information regarding the vandalism at the gazebo, contact the Plainville Police Department at (860) 747-1616. Stacey Norton and Kim Quealy Plainville Stacey Norton and Kim Quealy are volunteer caretakers of the gazebo.

Program helps 400 children To the editor: On behalf of the United Way of West Central Connecticut and our community partners, I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who participated in the 2010 Adopt-a-Child Back-to-School Program. Over 400 students have been adopted for the

first day of school thanks to the generous individuals and organizations in our community! As a result of your kindness, these children from the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth received new outfits, backpacks and school supplies for the first day of school. These donations will help to ensure that these children start off the school year with confidence and hope. Thanks to the following individuals in Plainville: Claudia Bechard, Karen Hallsey, Kathy Monteiro, Pam Musshorn, Arlene Osuch, Margaret Straub and Brenda Tella.

Letters to the Editor

Complaints about open campfires

To the editor: In our small town there are some issues that just make people uncomfortable. One of them is the ability of residents to have campfires that are contained in fire pits or appliances commercially made for such use. I have had press releases numerous times regarding the Open Burning Ordinance that specifies what can be burned legally and under what conditions the campfire is allowed. A major complaint is that campfires produce smoke that may be irritating to neighbors. As I do not disagree with this problem, we also need to realize that not all campfires are a problem. Many of the issues we deal with have a common factor: Some neighbors will just never get along with each other. I must state again as in recent newspaper articles: If you see a problem, suspect a problem, or have a problem regarding open burning you need to call the fire dispatch office when the event occurs. The fire department will dispatch a fire unit, evaluate and take the proper action. Many times complaints are made directly to my office during the daytime. Normally the complaint is based on something that happened over a previous weekend. At this point there is absolutely no enforcement action to be taken as there is no campfire. So who’s complaining? One item that needs to be addressed are the complaints being mailed to my office that are not signed, have no contact information or return address on the envelope. My friend living in the West Main Street area: Thank you for your correspondence, but please contact me. You will never know how your concerns are addressed until I discover who you are, can talk to you and discuss the issues with you. In closing I will say again: 1. If you have a complaint of smoke from a campfire or think there is a hazardous situation from campfires, notify the fire depart-

ment of your concerns in real time. 2. Give the dispatcher the information that is asked for. 3. Always identify yourself when sending in mail complaints. These are situations that shall be addressed if we

know when they are happening at the time. Larry A. Sutherland Plainville Larry A. Sutherland is the Plainville Fire Marshal/ Emergency Management contact.

Prayer

good results. Answer 2: God will listen because He loves you. The Bible says “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” Lamentations 3:22. Mercy means that even though someone screws up, we love him anyway. God loves us in our imperfections all the time, and He starts fresh every day. Do we pay consequences for our sins? Yes; but that is a separate issue. God still loves us every day and wants to share our lives. Do you stop loving your kids when they are driving you crazy? Neither do I. Way greater is God’s love and mercy for us. God will be glad to listen to your prayer. Try it for two weeks and see if your kids aren’t happier. Experiment with the best time and place to pray with them in the morning. Twenty-two seconds parents, is all it takes to show love in action to your kids. It’s worth it. Grandparents: cut this out and give to your kids. Tiana Welles is a Plainville resident.

Continued from page 10 When done every day, your children will eventually say things like: “I have a test today.” Add it into your prayer. “And please help Michael with his test today.” Keep it simple. Since kids imitate their parent’s actions, this basic prayer provides a concrete example that it’s okay to ask God for help regularly. It prepares your children to ask God directly for help themselves when they need it. He is a better resource than their “cool” friends. This is not difficult. It is the emotional barrier, an embarrassment factor, that says either: “I can’t do that, what will my kids think?” or “I’m not a regular church-goer, why would God listen to me?” Answer 1: While your kids may moan, laugh or be shocked the first few days, inside they will think, “I’m glad my Mom/Dad loves me enough to pray for me.” This is a tangible loving action and that alone can cause only

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, August 26, 2010

Application for Forestville Avenue zone change denied By Brian Woodman Jr. Special to The Citizen

Despite support from members of the public, an application to change the zoning of the property adjacent to Chris’s Auto on Forestville Avenue from residential to general commercial usage was denied. Members of the Plainville

Planning and Zoning Commission, which discussed the application on Aug. 17, expressed reservations about how the land may eventually be used despite the apparent intentions of the applicant. “If we allow this zone change, there will be no turning back,” said commission member Scott Masteller.

The commission discussed the application during a public hearing continued from July 6. Applicant Karen Pio owns the site, which is located at 18 Forestville Ave. Chris Pio, a family member, operates the garage at 16 Forestville Ave. If the zone change had been approved, a separate

site plan approval would have been required to determine how the lot would have been used. Tim Sullivan, who spoke on behalf of the Pios, said the two lots would be used together and referred to a letter of approval for the application from the Economic Development Commission. Commission members discussed the lot for the garage, which may contain up to 30 parked cars. Planning and Development Director Mark

DeVoe said the Zoning Board of Appeals can control the number of cars that would be parked on either site. DeVoe confirmed that the applicant’s intent was to expand parking for the garage to the adjacent site pending approval for the zoning change. “I like what he’s done, but my feeling is that if we do approve the zone change, there will be an increase in the volume of vehicular traffic,” said commission member

The Hartford Colonials: affordable pro football By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

Professional football is being played right down the road, and for spectators, the price is right. The Hartford Colonials, a first-year member of the United Football League, use Berlin’s Sage Park as their practice facility. The Colonials opened training camp Aug. 18, and will be plugging away at Sage Park the rest of the season. The team practices most days 9 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 5 p.m. The pub-

lic is welcome to attend, free of charge. Berkley Gadwah, who came out to the Colonials’ first practice last week, appears to be the first fan to get his hands on a Hartford Colonials replica jersey. The blue and gold jerseys were on sale at Sage Park and Gadwah was at the head of the line at the merchandise table. While the Colonials practiced just yards away, Gadwah pulled on the jersey, boasting that, other than the players themselves, he is the first guy to wear the uniform

Hall of Fame Class of 2010 unveiled By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

For more than a decade, the Plainville Sports Hall of Fame has honored the town’s rich athletic history. Since its formation in 1998, the Hall has opened its doors for nearly 100 players, coaches and contributors. Soon, a new crop of local legends will join them. The Plainville Sports Hall of Fame has unveiled its Class of 2010. The Hall’s newest inductees are swimmer Sarah Doncet, football and track and field athlete Mike Debboli, three-sport performers Vic Paradis and Jim Salomone, and baseball and soccer player Brian Edge. Entering the Hall in the Distinguished Service catego-

ry will be Mike Lantiere. The Class of 2010 will be honored at an induction banquet Sept. 25 at Nuchie’s Restaurant in Forestville. This year’s banquet will be the first not overseen by Byron Treado. The Hall of Fame’s founder, Treado stepped down as chairman in 2009 after 12 years on the job. He has been replaced by Keith Damato. The new chairman is a member of the Hall of Fame. A 1979 graduate of PHS, Damato was a three-sport athlete for the Blue Devils, who continued his baseball career at Fairfield University. After college, Damato, a pitcher, played professional baseball in Italy and competed for the Italian national team in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

of Connecticut’s only professional football team. And he wore it with pride. “This is no fly by night outfit,” Gadwah said of the Colonials. “A lot of these players have been on NFL teams.” Because of the caliber of play, and Connecticut’s love of sports, Gadwah is confident the people of the state will embrace the Colonials. “If I have anything to do about it, they will,” he said. Like Gadwah, Newington’s Paul Plavcan came out to Sage Park to get a close look at the Colonials, and to purchase a couple of jerseys. Why get so invested in a team that has yet to run a single play? “Because it’s our team,” said Plavcan. “We haven’t had a pro team in Connecticut since the Whalers left. I think we have this selfimage of Hartford as a minor league town, or Connecticut as a minor league place. For there to be another pro team in the area I think is really exciting.” The Colonials are counting on low ticket prices to fill seats at East Hartford’s Rentschler Field, where their

home games will be played. Tickets go for as little as $15. “How can you beat that?,” said Plavcan, the father of young sons. “In this economy, I think this is a perfect alternative for families.” The Colonials’ Citizen photo by Nick Carroll roster includes Hartford Colonials coach Chris former NFL Palmer chats it up with a player Aug. quarterback Josh McCown, 18 at Sage Park’s Scalise Field.

Coach: PHS football has 'turned the page' coach Chris Farrell was hired to replace Gagliardi, and numbers were high for spring football practice. Since then, the Blue Devils have put in a lot of work in the weight room, attended a team camp, competed in a passing league, and solidified their bond with the young Plainville Colts players — the future of PHS football. “I knew going into this job the No. 1 thing was to increase interest in the football program,� said Farrell. “I have focused on communication and having fun. I have tried to make everything we do as fun as possible, but also point out the important reasons for doing it. Everything we do, whether it is conditioning, lifting in the morning, or helping the Pop

By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

This off-season was, at times, a tumultuous one for the Plainville High School football team. First, coach Rocky Gagliardi stepped down after two years at the helm. Then, immediately, rumors began to swirl that PHS would pull the plug on its struggling varsity football squad. Folks in town lamented how far the once proud program had fallen. The Blue Devils were reeling. But things have since begun to look up for PHS football. Popular PHS teacher and

about how we need to stick together as a team and work harder than they did the day before.� “I want nothing more than for these players to be successful, whether on the football field or off,� Farrell added. “I feel that the effort and positive attitude is there, and if we do not settle, that we will be very competitive.� Plainville players had a busy summer. To start things off, 20 Blue Devils attended a three-day camp at Central Connecticut State University where they took instruction from college coaches and competed against high school players from across the state. Beginning the first week in July and continuing to the first day of practice, Farrell’s troops participated in a weight-lifting and conditioning program at the high school, four days a week, 6 to 8 a.m.

Warner players at their practices, I have added some kind of twist so that the players enjoy it. I feel that if the players enjoy what they are doing, and understand why we are doing it, then it is easier to stay focused for the upcoming season.� The 2010 season began this week for the Blue Devils. After five days of conditioning workouts, the pads go on and contact begins. The locals registered just one victory over the past two years, but Farrell indicated that his guys are undaunted and focused on getting the team back on track. “I have a special group of players that have really dedicated themselves into turning the program around,� the first-year head man said. “We have taken on a ‘no excuses’ mentality. The players know what I expect of them, and I reinforce those expectations every day. I am constantly talking to the players

Plainville players took part in a passing league as well this summer, competing against St. Paul, Farmington and Bristol Eastern. “Working out in the offseason is critical to be successful as a team during the season,� said Farrell. “In football, strength training and conditioning are part of the game. Strength training helps to reduce the risk of injury during the season, and also separates the average teams from the great teams. My players have seen some great strength gains, and the hard work they put in during the off-season will definitely be noticeable on the field in the fall.� Farrell won’t prognosticate about wins and losses, but guarantees his guys will play their hearts out this season. “I am an extremely competitive person,� he said. “I am going to do whatever it takes to make sure these boys are competitive on Friday nights. If the hard work and focus continues, I think the boys will see success. As far as putting a number on the amount of wins, I won’t do that. As a team, we will go into the season focused on the week at hand. We are looking to be competitive every game and execute the game plan that we have come up with. We have turned the page from the last couple years and will work on improving as a team every day at practice.� PHS football “Pride Night� will be held at midnight, Saturday, Aug. 28, at Alumni Field. That will be the Blue Devils’ first fullcontact practice. The community is invited to attend. Plainville kicks off its regular season slate against visiting Maloney Friday. Sept. 17.

The latest question I received was from Nicole of Plainville. She wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am fairly new to the game of golf. How does one minimize the amount of slice shots during their game?â&#x20AC;? That is a great question, Nicole. The majority of amateur golfers have a slice that is difficult to control. More times than not it is caused by an outside-to-in swing path which is usually the result of a poor golf grip, poor alignment, or swaying. When a player tries to control the dreaded slice it will only get worse and will result in a long day on the golf course! Here are a few tips you can work on to help you minimize the amount of slice shots in a round of golf, and help you find the fairway. On your downswing, keep your head steady and let your hands and arms drop underneath your chin. This will undoubtedly improve your swing path. When you start your downswing, and your head moves forward, it will promote an outside-to-in swing path which will cause a slice. By keeping your head steady on the downswing, it will allow your hands and arms to drop underneath, which will help your swing become more on plane. Most slicers also try and put a â&#x20AC;&#x153;band-aidâ&#x20AC;? on their golf swing by aiming more to the left, or to the right if you are left-handed, to prevent a slice. Your swing is guided by the alignment of your shoulders, hips and feet, so such action will only make your slice drastically worse. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aim further left because it will promote an outside-to-in golf swing and you will hit a big banana-shaped slice every time. A good drill to work on at the driving range is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the tee drill.â&#x20AC;? First,

address the ball with your driver and place a tee just outside the toe of the golf club (The toe of the club is the furthest point on the clubhead from where you are standing). Stick the tee either in the ground, or if you are on a mat, place the tee upside-down so it is standing upright. Now start hitting some golf balls without disturbing the tee. If you are hitting the tee on every swing, your swing plane is outside-to-in and will result in a slice. The goal is to start hitting balls without disturbing the tee. If you can hit the ball and not hit the tee, your swing plane will become much flatter and you will start minimizing the amount of slices you hit. Thank you for your question, Nicole. And to all of you slicers, there is still hope! Follow these simple tips and try the drill. You may start finding parts of the golf course you never knew existed!

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, August 26, 2010

Drain Continued from page 1

“There will be new drainage techniques that will be proposed. The issue has bee that we have been playing ping pong, going back and forth, with the reformatted regulations over the last five months. The result was a user-friendly document.” The document can be found through the Town of Plainville’s homepage www.plainvillect.com. DeVoe said the page is just one step toward getting the community’s ideas and discussions involved with the proposed changes, in addition to a public hearing on Sept. 28. Under the new proposals, DeVoe said the development, redevelopment and design of projects will greatly change, by using different engineering paradigms. “The goal used to be to get off the property as fast as possible,” he said. “Then the next step would be to build a detention basin, which was an in-street drainage system, which works to a degree.”

Under the current policies, however, DeVoe said there are chances of flooding or water simply being pushed off the site without being treated. Instead, the town wants to take care of the potential issues on-site. “We want to use a series of low impact develop (LID) elements to treat the water and reduce the volume right on site,” DeVoe said. The proposed changes, as listed on the Web site, include incorporating drainage and parking changes while making changes to the zoning regulations, making changes in the subdivision regulations to incorporate LID approaches, making changes in the wetland regulations, which would incorporate LID approaches, and making changes in the town road construction ordinance. The town also seeks to adopting an LID and storm water manual. If approved, the town can then go about making the necessary changes in order to better manage the storm water runoff. Though DeVoe said he

hopes the amendments can improve potential flooding in the future, he said, “This is not a fix for existing problems.” The current problems exist, he explained, because of different engineering paradigms used in the past. Any redevelopment of property, however, would be required to use the new proposed plans. DeVoe said he acknowledges that some residential repairs such as roofing and driveway repairs could have an adverse affect on the issues at hand, he said they typically would not be of much concern to the town and therefore, would not have to be covered under the changes. “We don’t want to place a burden on home developers, we simply want to educate the homeowners,” he said. The next step in the project is finalizing the proposed amendments, DeVoe said, adding that there are no changes to the uses in the policies. The changes are something DeVoe expects to become the norm across the state in the coming years, as he said Plainville is “ahead of the curve” on the issue. “We are one of three or four [towns] in Connecticut trying to implement these changes on a town-wide basis,” he said. The potential changes could cause changes that would greatly benefit Plainville, DeVoe said. “We want to make sure we can keep the water on site to make sure the aquifers don’t dry up,” he said. “And we don’t want to send this water off downstream, ending up in the Long Island Sound.”

the Hartford Courant. Later, he updated his page writing, “If every day is like this, it’ll be the best job ever.” Even more controversy came the first day on site when he posted, “My first day on site involved counseling an administrator to retire or face termination. :)” Telesca has since been placed on administrative leave after the “inappropriate” comments came out, though the Windsor Locks Board of Education has no social networking policy. Similarly, Plainville also does not have a social networking policy to deal directly with the social sites. Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Binkowski, however, said she feels the Plainville Board of Education has policies in place that would deal with social networking, should there become a problem. “We feel strongly that (social networking) is covered,” she said. “The acceptable use policy has worked well in the past and we feel the issue would be covered by the acceptable use policy.” The acceptable use policy for personnel covers the network of computers owned by the board of education. Under the policy, employees are requried to “utilize the district computers, networks and Internet services for school-related purposes and performance of job duties.” Should an issue such as Telesca’s come up in which his initial post came from his home, the policy does not state what can and cannot be done or said through personal computers. Should the employee make a post through a computer owned by the board from an employee’s home, the policy would cover the issue. Binkowski said the board has discussed in the past whetheror not to institute a policy dealing specifically with social networking. “We had talked about it last year,” she said. “At the time, we didn’t need it. Typically, policies cover issues that we might come across such as discipline or ethical issues.”

Binkowski added that the employees of the Plainville Board of Education are also made aware of the issues that could come along with “irresponsible” social networking. “We have addressed the issues during the work day and given instructional information to teach teachers,” she said. “The matters have been discussed during professional development days and shared the adverse effects (of social networking).” The school system also has rules in place for innappropriate use of e-mail and the e-mail addresses given out to staff members. It includes only “conducting the business of the school system” as well as being “not intended for personal use.” The misuse of the e-mail system, as well as the network computers could result in disciplinary action up to discharge the policies warn and illegal will result in refferal to law enforcement authorities. Binkowski said the board does have legal authoritiy to deal with employees and the issues that may arise. Board Chairman Becky Tyrrell and Vice Chairwoman Lorri Goldsmith did not return telephone messages requesting comment.

Peter Saucier. “There are too many vehicles in the area already.” Commissioner Glenn Petit said he was concerned that the applicant may have the right to increase access to the site unless compelling safety issues were raised. Chris Pio said he would be willing to lose an entrance to the site on Forestville Avenue, although DeVoe emphasized that access was a separate issue. DeVoe said the town’s most recent Plan of Conservation and Development, which was developed in 2009, labels the general area in which the site is located as a neighborhood conservation area. He said the plan, which is meant to provide general guideposts for future development, recommends that the area primarily accommodate residential usage. The plan does not support the zone change, according to Petit. During the meeting, a few residents said the Pio family improved the quality of the immediate neighborhood. Resident Keith Lacombe said he had no problem with the application as long as no trucks or wrecker vehicles were entering or leaving the site. A public hearing regarding an application by Liberty Bank for a special exception to put in a drive-through ATM at a new bank to be located at 48 East St. was rescheduled for Sept. 14.
