Town and Board of Education finances to be combined By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen

Following a tumultuous vote at the Board of Education meeting two weeks ago regarding the combination of the town and BOE finance offices (which resulted in three Democratic members leaving the meeting), the town council voted to approve the merge.

At the July 9 council meeting, Republican council members voted in favor, while Democrats asked to postpone the decision, resulting in a 5-2 vote in favor. Council member Lee Toffey said combining the two finance boards will go a long way to creating transparency between council and BOE. Any savings that materializes because of the merge is

a bonus, she said. Toffey explained an immediate vote on the BlumShapiro study would give the finance department time to adjust before the new school year begins. Christopher Wazorko, council member, said he had questions about the report that he wanted to have anSee Finances, page 6 Citizen photo by Nick Carroll

Phoenix Soil schedules Q&A ‘Stop the stack,’ residents say By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen By now, it would be hard to live in Plainville and not have heard of Phoenix Soil, the company slated to move into town and occupy the former Atlantic Pipe site. Phoenix Soil is a soil-recycling company that takes petroleum-soaked dirt and makes it clean fill, which the company then sells. Since news broke that the owner of the company, David Green, was trying to relocate the business from Waterbury to Plainville, the opposition has spread. “They sound very nice but Waterbury was eager to get rid of them and I wonder why,” said Annemarie Tanski at the July 9 council meeting.

The fifth annual General Electric/Petit Foundation Road Race, held July 15 in Plainville, drew a field of more than 3,000 runners and walkers – the highest turnout the event has seen. Pictured: Competitors set out on the 3.1-mile course Sunday morning. See page 17 for more.

Protest at Mizzy Construction ends early By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen Citizen photo by Crystal Maldonado

Signs protesting Phoenix Soil’s move have popped up all around town. Green will answer any questions residents have at a recently announced public information session Thursday, July 26, at 6 p.m. in the Plainville Library Auditorium, See Stack, page 7

Construction workers were set to protest July 11 at Mizzy Construction in regards to the company’s work practices, OHSA safety violations and prevailing wage laws. The demonstration at the East Street facility was scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon. However, the protest

dwindled around 10 a.m. after participants were told they could not park in the nearby apartment car lot, according to a Plainville police dispatcher. The protest comes after a large, anti-Mizzy Construction billboard was erected by the Connecticut Laborers’

Council waits to make charter revision decision By Crystal Maldonado The Plainville Citizen

At the July 9 council meeting, members decided to wait to make a decision regarding the final proposed charter. A lengthy public hearing on the matter preceeded the meeting, where most residents spent their five minutes at the podium opposing several of the changes. “We appreciate the chance for changes to the charter and I don’t have the answers,” said John Kisluk. “But we’re not happy. We want taxpayers to have more of a say in the final budget.” “There are significant problems with this charter,” said Kenneth Laska, an attorney in town who has served on previous charter revision commissions. Laska questioned the legality of several changes, including whether it would be sound for the town to combine the BOE and town council finance departments.

Several raised concerns over the change to the budget voting process, which would make the town budget and BOE budget separate entities and remove the third vote (if the budgets failed). Advisory questions would be changed from discretionary to mandatory. If either budget is rejected, the council will revise the rejected budget(s) “in accordance with the majority results from the advisory question,” the charter says. “I think voting separately on two budgets is a divisive thing,” Rosemary Morante said. “Please remember that the town council sees the Board of Education budget before it comes to the community.” Morante said voting on the budgets separately might lead to the town being viewed as unfriendly to education. “We’re one town, one group of people, one budget,” said Thomas Arcari a former charter commission

person. Robert Mercer questioned why the advisory question was made mandatory. Richard Ireland Jr. asked that the council consider revising the section on eminent domain, which states that private property valued at higher than $10,000 must be approved by five council members in addition to a majority vote at a town referendum. “I don’t think you want people to take away someone else’s property. It should be up to the town council,” Ireland said. The revised charter also states that any town council member has the power to make inquiries into “any and all departments, offices, boards, commissions and agencies of the Town, including the Board of Education, and shall have the right to request, inspect and review any such documents,” according to teh carter “That’s too much power to put in one person’s

er people.” Grandbois said he’d fight with anyone to see the revisions defeated. Other proposed changes to the charter remained unmentioned, including the establishment of the ethics commission and an increase to the number of emergency ordinances allowed per year. Above all, some residents asked the council not to rush their decision. “Take your time,” Don Hallin said. “Don’t put this through quickly and then you’re stuck with it for 10 years.”

hands,” Arcari said. “We elect a Board of Education to handle educational matters,” Morante said. Residents questioned why this change was necessary, citing a previous fall out between Republican council members Scott Saunders and Lee Toffey versus former Democratic BOE chairwoman Becky Tyrell. Was the change politically motivated, some asked. “I just hope we don’t turn this thing into Democrats versus Republicans,” said Lou Frangos. Residents spoke against a related change that would combine town and BOE finance departments, recommended by a $50,000 feasibility study done by BlumShapiro. “Everything about this was partisan. The charter revision commission was chosen by the Republicans; Democrats had no input,” said Andre Grandbois, former Plainville police officer and member of a previous charter revision commission. “You give me $50,000, I’ll give you a report that you’re going to love and it’s going to be everything that you want.

Commentary

All four wheels on the ground this time By Ruth S. Hummel Special to The Citizen

At the fantastic July 1 “Wings and Wheels” show at Robertson Airport, I was able to enjoy another adventure from my “wish list.” I spent a couple of hours giving people rides around the show in my “green turtle” golf cart. That whole area was just jam-packed with people, planes, displays, booths, helicopters. It was a very happy scene, everyone talking and laughing. Then I decided it was time to find Jim Splettstoest who was going to fulfill another of my wishes – a ride in a race car. The red and white number 87 is a 1937 Chevy (so it’s only seven years younger than I am and probably in a lot better shape!). There were almost 500 cars of all kinds and ages, but I finally found him in a shady spot. The main reason Jim had “won” the job of giving me a ride was that his was the

I certainly would never have been able to squeeze through one of the windows – OK, I said it! The Chevy, of course, had no muffler, that fact adding to the fun and excitement as

swered prior to voting, although he did not have a problem with the finances being combined. “It’s not what I pictured,” said Wazorko, who emphasized that he was against the initial $50,000 feasibility study by BlumShapiro. “It seems like the consolidation is inevitable, but I’d like some answers,” he said. Council member Quinn Christopher agreed. “I want to wait to allow the public to get their questions answered, too,” she said. Vice Chairman Scott Saunders said he personally saw no reason to postpone. “It’s time to move on,” Councilman Dan Hurley said. The council made its decision after hearing concerns raised by residents at the same meeting. Lou Frangos asked if there would be a public hearing to discuss the BlumShapiro results. Pugliese said no, but that there had been a hearing prior to the study. Frangos attended that meeting and tried to ask questions, but was told only BOE members were allowed to do so, he said. Pugliese explained that the meeting was for BOE members, council

members and BlumShapiro only. Frangos said he was perplexed as to why council planned to vote on BlumShapiro at the meeting. “Why the rush?” he asked. Art Screen said the BlumShapiro study was created because of a grudge between Councilman Saunders and former BOE chairwoman Becky Tyrell. “It’s a personal vendetta against the BOE,” he said. Saunders said it’s not a vendetta, it’s about public information. Last year, the BOE returned 21 cents, while this year it’s estimated that the board will return $500,000 to the town, without cutting teachers or classes, he said.

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

New motto for BOE?

To the editor: Mr. Frangos objects to the Democrat members of the Board of Education asking for time, beyond the four days they were given, to fully review the BlumShapiro report. He also objected to their seeking information from educational experts and towns who used shared services. Mr. Frangos wanted the Democrats to fall in line with the Republican chairwoman and “rush to judgement” by approving the BlumShapiro report surrendering the BOE’s financial controls to the town’s chief financial officer who reports to the town manager and not to the superintendent of schools. In business, asking for additional information before making a major deci-

sion is normally considered good idea. However, Mr. Frangos and Republican Chairwoman Saunders seem to fail to understand or respect that business practice. Based on my experience as a former town counclman, BOE member and town treasurer, I consider the BlumShapiro report to be without any merit. It does, however, do what the Republican dominated town council wants. It weakens the BOE and superintendent of schools control over education while increasing the power of the town manager, to whom the chief financial officer reports. Want to guess who hires, fires and gives raises to the town manager? After 30+ years in the corporate world, I know that consultant reports generally provide justifica-

tion for what the people who hired them wanted to do. Fact, BlumShapiro is hired by the Town Council. Fact, the Republican agenda of this Council wanted to weaken the BOE. Is anyone surprised that the BlumShapiro report gave the Republican dominated Town Council exactly what it wanted. The actions of Chairwoman Saunders and her Republican colleagues provides us with a new motto for the BOE:“Politics First, Kids Second.” Val E. Dumais Plainville

Commentary

What’s not to love about summer? By Diana Carr Special to The Citizen I am crazy mad in love with summer. Always have been. As a kid, the main draw was no school, of course. But throughout the years, my love affair with this glorious season has never faltered. We’re still going strong, summer and me. The magic is still there. For starters, my tootsies are so happy to be naked again. Shoes and I have never gotten along. They seem determined to torment me, pinching this, chafing that, and they make no allowances whatsoever for the bunions and the hammertoes. Oh, but no sooner has winter retreated and the ground begun to thaw, than they are thrown, rather unceremoniously, into the back

of the closet, not to be heard from again until the trees are once again bare. And then there are the long days. Days that roll out before me, beckoning me to a life lived outside these four walls. And they always have their way with me. I start the day off, really, with the best of intentions. I will remain rooted at my computer, I say to myself. I will write, write, write, and peddle my stories to magazines and make bunches and bunches of money. But then I hear the siren’s call, and I am out the door, frolicking in the grass (yes, I really do frolic), listening to birds, smelling flowers. My spirit needs these days, withers on the vine without them. Winter’s confinement is hard on See Summer, next page

Phoenix Soil, which has been in business for 19 years, has a clean record, according to the DEEP, except for a $50,000 dust fine in 2010. The company has branches in Sydney, Australia and Budapest, Hungary, which Green said are right near houses. “It’s important for us to get the information out to the people of what we actually do versus what’s being said that we do,” said Green, who admitted it was difficult not to take the challenges personally. “This is a family business and we’re very active in,” he said. “We’re not dropping in every now and then – we make the decisions. This is our life.” To contact David Green or to schedule a tour, call (203) 759-0053. Phoenix Soil is currently located at 130 Freight St., Waterbury. Residents who have any questions regarding the Public Information Session can contact the Town Manager’s Office at (860) 7930221, ext. 201.

healthier community with the farmers market was destroyed in a second by who ever made this greedy tax dollar decision to offer Phoenix Soil a home here. I can’t figure out how Plainville can put a company that handles contaminated soil on a property surrounded by the Pequabuck River, a large nature pond, countless acres of natural wetlands, and especially the historic Farmington canal. Someone please pinch me to wake me from this nightmare. I love reading Ruth Hummel’s editorials on the rich history of Plainville and how hard our great great grandfathers worked to make Plainville a wonder-

ful place to live and raise a family. Ruth’s stories remind me why I stayed here for 47 years. I am not sure how she will fit a stack story into her mix. To Shirley Osle, please do what is right for Plainville. Some tax dollars, no matter how much is involved, is just not worth ruining what Plainville represents. The stack is not right for Plainville. Instead, maybe Plainville can turn this site into a community garden site and nature center. Now that’s continuing your work by making a healthier Plainville. Please don’t let the ‘Stack of Greed’ get you, too. Dave Garewski Plainville

tant town manager for Plainville and board member for the farmers market. I see in The Plainville Citizen your farmers market that has been two years in the making was a great success. Congratulations! It is nice to see that you are involved with wanting a healthier community, as you stated in the paper. So I guess the only question for you as the assistant town manager (because the town manager is not listening) is why would you bring this company to downtown Plainville? It seems to me that two years of planning for a

Summer Continued from page 10 me. But now, I’m loving the sun, and the green everywhere I look, and the blue sky. And knowing I can stay outside, if I want to, until nighttime makes a showing around 9:00. And I always want to. I love waking up to birds singing to each other. No matter what burdens, real or imagined, plagued me the night before as I lay down, they all dissipate when the morning serenade rolls around. I soon find myself as happy as those little songstresses. I can’t be sad when I am bathed in sunlight streaming through the window, and bird song. And then there’s the unmitigated joy of swirling around for hours in my above-ground pool, in my floaty chair that rivals a Lazy Boy recliner for comfort. I nestle into it and read and read. And watch the birds soaring overhead, and listen to the breeze sighing in the trees and try to see shapes in the clouds. But this is no idle pastime, no sirree. I am always sliding into the water for the ex-

press purpose of scooping out a butterfly or a dragonfly or a bee or a ladybug or those little winged beasties I have no name for, with my net. I don’t want to boast, but I have saved many lives. It’s an important job, this lifeguarding for the insect world. Another cherished pastime offered up by “those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” (sing it, Fats Domino) is reading by my stream. I sprawl out on my chaise lounge, with my books and my tea, and I feel like I’m in paradise. It’s such a bucolic scene, with the woods that surround me, and the wildflowers and the birds and the bees and the butterflies and the dragonflies. The bees and I have come to an agreement; they’ll leave me alone and I’ll leave them alone. So far everyone has stuck to the agreement. Well, I’d like to continue this rhapsody — I haven’t even begun to tell you how much I love the beach — but there’s really no time. I’m headed out to my pool. How do you feel about summer? Send us your rants or raves! We may just run it as a column.

Donors needed United Way believes that the first day of school is an important event in a child’s life that is often overlooked. They began the Adopt–A–Child Back to School Program in 1999, helping 30 children. It has continued this program each year and it has grown dramatically, with over 400 children served last year alone. This year, the number of children signed up is 482. United Way is currently in the process of recruiting donors for its program this year. Members of the organization are hoping that the generous spirit of our local residents will extend to the many needy children in the area as they make their way back to school in the fall. The future of many of these children depends on their performance in school and United Way wants to ensure that all children are on a level playing field. If you or your company wants to take part in this valuable program and help a child in need, please call Beverly at United Way (860) 582-9559. You will be asked to provide a first day of school outfit for a child, along with a backpack filled with school supplies. United Way will provide you with a child’s first name, sex, clothing sizes, and favorite colors to help you in purchasing your gift. Donations can be dropped off to United Way on either Aug. 7, 8 or 9, so that they can distribute the gifts before the first day of school.

Fifth annual GE/Petit race draws record crowd By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen The fifth annual General Electric 5K Road Race benefitting the Petit Family Foundation, held Sunday in Plainville, had a different feel than did the previous four installments; a more celebratory, lighter feel. Perhaps it was that the two men responsible for the deaths of Jennifer, Hayley and Michaela Petit

now sit on death row. Or it may be that Dr. William Petit, the lone survivor of the Cheshire home invasion, has found love again, and is engaged to be married. For whatever reason, the vibe surrounding the 2012 GE/Petit race was a joyous one, and Dr. Petit had a spring in his step. Addressing the more than 3,000 runners and walkers before they set out on the 3.1-mile challenge July 15,

Stephen Pretak of New London, top, left, appears to be walking on air as he approaches the finish line at the fifth annual General Electric 5K Road Race, held Sunday morning in Plainville. Pretak bested his competition that morning and set a course record in the process. More than 3,000 runners and walkers set out on the 3.1-mile course, the largest field yet for the event. The race benefits the Petit Family Foundation.

Dr. Petit said: “I really just want to thank everyone for being here today. This is the biggest crowd ever. I want to let you know that you’re all part of the foundation, just by being here. You showed up to support the community and your fellow man.” One of Plainville’s favorite sons, the New England Patriots’ Niko Koutouvides also spoke to the participants. “Long distance isn’t my thing. I’m usually short and sweet,” the twotime Super Bowl participant said, to laughs. “But today I’m going to give it a go. I don’t know when I’m going to finish, but for all the runners; I’ll see you at the finish line.” New London’s Stephen Pretak bested the field that hazy morning. He navigated the course in a record time of 15:27, out-doing the runner-

up, Terryville’s Nico Greco, by six seconds. Jon Krell of Farmington rounded out the top three (15:56). Andrew Rottier was the first Plainville resident to finish. The PHS student was 11th with a time of 16:52. Complete race results are posted at plattsys.com. Terry Putaski of Bristol has run the GE 5K every year. He said one thing brings him back: Dr. Petit. “It’s a tragic event that happened to him, and in a small way I wanted to show support every year, to let him know that he’s not forgotten,” Putaski said, adding: “I’m very happy that he has found somebody. It looks like they’re going to get married this year, and I’ll tell you, I couldn’t be

First-round NBA draft pick Drummond once battled Blue Devils Marc Wesoly said, referring to Drummond. “But seeing him in person you could tell he was going to be something special.” Drummond, who would go on to play one season for the University of Connecticut, was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the ninth pick in the NBA Draft, June 28. Last week, Detroit signed the soon to be 19-year-old to a multi-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but, obviously, Drummond is now a very wealthy young man. Hartford’s Capital Prep got the best of Plainville at the Rybczyk tournament both years Drummond was on hand. In the 2007 tournament consolation game, the Blue Devils opened a big lead over Capital Prep only to see their sizeable advantage dis-

By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

Members of the 2007 and 2008 Plainville High School boys basketball teams certainly have a good story to share with their future grandkids. After all, not a lot of guys can say they ran the court with a NBA firstround draft pick. In ’07 and ‘08, the Capital Prep hoop team – featuring the nearly 7-foot Andre Drummond – rolled into PHS’s Ivan Wood Gymnasium for the David T. Rybczyk Memorial Tournament. “I remember hearing about him his freshman year and hearing that he was going to Middletown. I was mad because we would have to play him twice. Then I heard he was going to go to Capital Prep, and we had to play him once,” PHS coach

While at Hartford’s Capital Prep, Drummond twice played against Plainville High School. appear. Capital Prep would prevail, 64-57. Drummond, then a freshman, recorded a triple-double, including 12 points. In 2008, Plainville and Capital Prep met up in the Rybczyk tournament title game. This time, there was little in the way of drama; Capital Prep rolled, 70-42. Drummond, once again, had a triple-double, which included 18 rebounds. Marc Wesoly spoke with Drummond last season at a UConn practice. The coach said the big man remembered those Rybczyk tournament games. In fact, Drummond recalled Plainville used the “Hack-a-Shaq” technique on him, meaning instead of letting Drummond get easy buckets in the paint,

the Blue Devils would foul him, and force him to earn his points from the free throw line. “Seeing him from his

It brings out a lot of the community, and beyond the community as well.” All proceeds from the GE/Petit race go to the Petit Family Foundation, which honors the memories of the Petit women by benefiting causes close to their heart. “July 23 will be the fifth anniversary of a very tragic event when we lost Jennifer, Hayley and Michaela,” Dr. Petit said in his pre-race comments. “I know they’re looking down upon you and thankful for everything you all do.”
