Summer weather brings variable results to local farmers By Julie Sopchak, Dan Jackson, and Joy VanderLek

This summer brought its fair share of weather games to farmers in the area from heavy rain to even heavier heat. Jim Zarella of Zarella Farms in Plainville said the heavy rain and cold nights resulted in a pretty bad yield. Particularly, he said tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and pickles “took it on the chin.” The tomatoes couldn’t even be used for canning because they split so badly.

Zarella didn’t get any relief during the extreme heat. He said bees didn’t really work when it got too hot, so a lot of the food didn’t set. “Bees don’t work when it’s hot like that. They stay in the shade and nothing sets,” Zarella said. “You get very poor yields that way.” Interestingly enough, results were quite different just across the town border in Southington, where Diane Karabin of Karabin Farms said the year was quite fruitful for her crops. Karabin did say her farm See Variable / Page 9

works in career and technology education curriculum at Lyman. “It doesn’t cost anything, there’s no extra work and it saves a little time and extra money,” Iaiennaro said. “When they have four or five college level classes under their belt, they can get out into the workforce quicker,

a whole semester early.” Sheehan students have to travel to Lyman for the automotive classes because it has an auto shop, but other than that, students can earn the credits without leaving the schools. Cheshire High School, as See Credit / Page 6

he said. And going to the actual schools for classes also has its advantages, students said. “It was a really good experience. It was definitely more than AP courses could have prepared you for,” said Rebekah Hall, a senior at Maloney High School in Meriden, who took psychology through Middlesex College last year. “This way you’re on a college campus,” she said. “You have more responsibility on you and no one talks in class. I liked it.” Senior Briana Alicea took media studies online last year and this year is taking social psychology online through Wesleyan University in Middletown. “It’s difficult to balance school work plus online work,” Alicea said. “I wish I’d paid more attention to the readings, not just for the p.r. (public relations) part, but the other parts as well, to broaden my horizons.” At Lyman Hall, where there is an automotive classroom, students get credits at Gateway and at Lyman Hall for taking automotive classes. They also have to take the academic classes, just as at Sheehan, said Juliann Iaiennaro, who

High school students have long been able to get college credit by taking Advanced Placement courses, but through new relationships with community colleges and four-year schools, students throughout the region are now able to get credit through vocational classes as well. Some of the courses are available at the community colleges, some online and some right at their own high schools. “The beauty of this is they’re developing college transcripts while still in high school and saving mom and dad some money,” said Zen Popko, counseling director at Sheehan High School in Wallingford. At Sheehan and Lyman Hall high schools in Wallingford, students can get credit for taking automotive, child development and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) classes, school officials said. The schools have a relationship with Gateway Co m m u n i ty Co l l e ge i n New Haven and Middlesex Co m m u n i ty Co l l e ge i n Middletown. To receive the credits in the CNA program, students start in their junior year and must be enrolled in four years of English, and take algebra and biology before being eligible, he said. If the students get above a B minus in the academic classes, those credits transfer as well. Students can get a CNA license while still in high school, provided they pass the state exam. “I think it’s wonderful because it puts the students in a situation where they are not just learning the content of their field but it gives them exposure to other fields that are out there, like x-ray technician or other health-related careers,” Popko said. At Plainville High School, counselor Denise Jacobson said the school has a relationship with University of Connecticut and Tunxis Community College through Early College Experience and College Career Pathways

p ro g ra m s , re s p e c t ive ly. While students can earn college credits, she said the school doesn’t offer much in the way of vocational classes. Rather, students can earn college credits in marketing, science, Spanish, or physiology courses. With the ECE program, there is a fee, but the CCP program is free, essentially allowing students to get college credits for free as long as they pass the course. “It’s always nice to have an extra few credits to bring with you,” Jacobson said. Also, Jacobson said students can go to Bristol Tech for technical training, and still receive a PHS diploma. “We try to get to know our students and what direction they want to take,” Jacobson said. “For each kid it would be a different upside.” PHS technology education teacher David Gaignard said the school’s relationship with Tunxis has been running for about eight years. He said the classes offer a good opportunity to help reach college and career standards and stay in tune with the latest curves, especially in a field like technology and communications where the curriculum is constantly changing. “It’s a constant system of checks and balances,” Gaignard said. While the courses offered now aren’t as vocational, Gaignard said the door is always open for new ideas. “We’re always looking to expand our offerings here,”

Man pleads not guilty in deadly hit-and-run Special to The Citizen

A Plainville man pleaded not guilty Tuesday, Sept. 10, to charges in a fatal hit-andrun accident on Queen Street in Southington after the February blizzard. Edward Fascendini, 46, of 66 Whiting St., was arrested in May and charged with felony misconduct with a motor vehicle and three counts of evading responsibility. Fascendini was on parole at the time of the Feb. 12 accident and has been in custody as detectives continued to investigate the case. In Bristol Superior Court last Tuesday, Fascendini entered the not guilty pleas through his lawyer, Robert Cohen. The prosecutor said contact has been made with the deceased victim’s family, but not with the injured victim. The final investigation report from the Southington police was delivered to the state’s attorney’s office last Monday. The prosecutor said it is in “two or three big binders” and he will be providing the information to Cohen. The case was continued until Oct. 25 for a pretrial hearing. As he was being led out of the courtroom Fascendini, wearing tan prison shirt and pants, smiled back at someone in the audience. According to the arrest warrant, shortly after 10 p.m. on Feb. 12, Yan Qiao “Joanne” Chen, Hong “Rita” Yang and Liu “Emily” Huai, all 23, were walking south along the northbound lane of Queen Street near Aircraft Road, police said. At the time, the sidewalks along Queen Street were still covered with snow from the major snowstorm of

As park season nears end, volunteers sought

Feb. 8 and 9. Fascendini was driving a white Dodge pickup truck north on Queen Street when the women were struck and Fascendini did not stop, police have said. Fascendini was arrested after police found evidence from the truck at the scene and obtained witness statements, according to the arrest warrant. Chen died as a result of her injuries. The three women had just finished a shift at Gobi Mongolian Grill, 855 Queen St., and had been walking to their home on Upson Drive at the time of the accident. Yang and Huai have not been able to work since the accident and are still recovering from their injuries, a coworker said.

All season long, volunteers are hard at work at Tomasso Nature Park cleaning and sprucing up the grounds. Unfortunately, there’s more work to be done than there are volunteers to tackle it. During the fall, volunteers work to clean up leaves and prepare the park for winter so that re-opening in the spring will be less of a hassle. The park closes for the year Nov. 19. “What we are trying to

do now is clean out a lot of brush that’s putting leaves into the pond,” said Paul Marsan, a regular volunteer at the park. Marsan said 99 percent of the time only about three people help out, and more hands – even just one extra person – would be a huge help. “We just don’t get enough help,” Marsan said. The small crew is tasked with covering the 11 acres of land. Volunteers work one day a week. Marsan’s wife, Kathy, said the park is a gem, and grows every year, which is intriguing because its future was

in doubt after relocating to accommodate Robertson Airport. “ It ’s j u s t t h r iv i n g ,” Kathy said. “It’s absolutely beautiful.” The park is overseen by the Parks and Recreation Department, which helps remove larger trees and debris the volunteers can’t. Kathy Marsan said the work is very flexible and can be as simple as raking or light weeding, or heavy duty like cutting wood or moving objects that are obstructing viewing areas. “Little bit of everything,” See Volunteers / Page 4

Since its launch at the home of Joanne Margonelli on Jan. 19, 1961, the Plainville Art League has flourished. The group’s intent has always been to inspire improvement, stimulate creativity and promote art in the community. Once an exclusive artists’ club, the Plainville Art League expanded so that anyone with a love of art could join. Art league meetings, held monthly March through November with a Christmas party in December, feature unique demonstrations. Each meeting an artist presents specific techniques for certain forms of artwork. Members can experience a type of art new to them, and discuss and critique one another’s work in an open environment. “Everyone feeds off of each other,” Couture said.

Also, there are meetings dedicated to member Doe Bartiette’s “famous critique,” where members bring in unfinished work to get Bartiette’s expert and humorous advice. Never harsh, she makes suggestions and offers tips on how to strengthen works. Members also find new art products at demonstrations. For instance, at the group’s Oct. 21 meeting, local artists and active member P.R. Bailey will demonstrate how to achieve the look of different textures in watercolor with items such as lace and plastic wrap. “I think it’s important to make connections, share information,” said Bailey, speaking of the nature of Plainville Art League meetings. “It gives an advantage to the artists to allow others to see what they’re doing.” When the Plainville Art League isn’t educating its 1270581 23051R

members, it’s motivating young artists. Each year, one graduating Plainville High School senior pursuing art studies receives a scholarship to help fund his or her education. Also, the student is given free membership to the Plainville Art League throughout their college career. The art league mainly funds itself through membership fees and fundraisers. It has also been the beneficiary of generous donations, including a charitable gift of $4,000, which came from an anonymous source. “Somebody likes us,” Couture said. The Plainville Art League often hosts exhibits and sales, where members can show and/or sell their work. Sometimes, however, artists will present smaller collections at smaller venues.

GPS bracelets stymie domestic violence By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

The following people have been charged by police:

A corresponding GPS device is given to the victim, which can be carried or left at home. From there, if the offender comes within 5,000 feet of the victim, the victim is notified. If the offender comes within 2,500 feet, the victim is alerted and local police will respond to the victim’s house. Additionally, the offender will have to make a court appearance. In Plainville, Peterson said the department domestic violence intervention team follows up with victims after a protective order is placed. The pilot GPS program currently costs about $500,000 a year to run. If it were to be used statewide, it would cost about $1.9 million each year.

Since 2010, judges in Hartford, Bridgeport, and Danielson have been issuing GPS ankle bracelets to domestic violence offenders, and the pilot program has seen positive results. Of the 168 bracelets issued, offenders have been involved in zero instances of domestic violence. “I think it’s a great idea,” said Lt. Eric Peterson of Plainville Police Department. “I wish we had it implemented here because we have people that get arrested for domestic violence all the time.” On average, Peterson said Plainville gets around 20 to 30 domestic violence calls a

month. More often than not, he said, after a protective order has been issued, there will be an incident where the order is violated. “And that’s only when it comes to our attention,” Peterson said. “I’m sure it’s violated a heck of a lot more when we’re not made aware of it.” In 2009, Plainville resident Tiana Notice was stabbed to death when her ex-boyfriend violated a restraining order. The way the GPS system works is a judge would order an offender to wear the device. Peterson said the order would probably weigh and consider multiple factors such as seriousness of the incident, or if the person is a repeat offender.

A6 Thursday, September 19, 2013 Salinger, by David Shields and Shane Salerno For more than fifty years, the ever elusive author of The Catcher in the Rye has been the subject of a relentless stream of newspaper and magazine articles as well as several biographies. Yet all of these attempts have been hampered by a fundamental lack of access and by the persistent recycling of inaccurate information. Salinger remains, astonishingly, an enigma. The complex and contradictory human being behind the myth has never been revealed. No longer. In the eight years since

Salinger was begun, and especially in the three years since Salinger’s death, the authors interviewed on five continents more than 200 people, many of whom had previously refused to go on the record about their relationship with Salinger. This oral biography offers direct eyewitness accounts from Salinger’s World War II brothers-in-arms, his family members, his close friends, his lovers, his classmates, his neighbors, his editors, his publishers, his New Yorker colleagues, and people with whom he had relationships that were secret even to his

own family. Shields and Salerno illuminate most brightly the last 56 years of Salinger’s life: a period that, until now, had remained completely dark to biographers.

Cheshire offers 10 classes that can provide students with the transfer credits. The teachers have to have specialized training and are actually considered UConn faculty, as well as faculty at their respective high schools.

While the classes are considered AP, the students don’t have to take the AP tests to get the credit, they just have to get a 70 percent or above for it, Montorsi added. At Maloney and Pratt, students can also take child development classes through a partnership with the YMCA preschool and Middlesex. “The preschool classes are right next door to us and

the preschool kids work directly with our kids,” said Rob Montemurro, Platt High School principal. “Our kids are getting the experience of working with the younger kids. It’s enriching and its a great opportunity for the little kids who become part of our school.” He added that because of the high cost of post-secondary education, the schools are always looking for ways to help students out. “We always push for more students to take the classes, not just for the rigorousness of the programs, but for the savings,” Montorsi said. Louis Brunk, assistant principal at Maloney, said it also helps students get a feel for academic life after high school. “It helps them be more successful in college because they’re learning more of what is needed,” he said. “And, it gives them a jump start on what they want to do,” he said. The programs also help tailor the high school experience more to students’ individual desires. “As a district, we’re always looking for ways to personalize the high school experience,” Brunk said. “We’re always looking for opportunities to get kids involved in what they want.” Julie Sopchak contributed to this article.

Time’s running out for book drive to meet goal By Erin K. Butler Special to The Citizen

A town-wide effort is underway to collect 500 books for students in Plainville. “The importance of this drive is simply to help foster the love of reading with our youth in town,” said Susan Bradley, Plainville Community Schools volunteer coordinator. Donations of new and gently used books, suitable for students in kindergarten through high school are being accepted. Bradley, along with Chad Haber, a Reading Partners program volunteer and an accounting analyst with the town’s finance department, have teamed up with the senior center and recreation department to collect the books. “Schools mean business when it comes to reading. This is a primary focus right now,” Haber said. The drive originated with the goal to provide new books for the Reading Partners program at Linden

books. But organizers are staying positive. “We are excited about this drive. We hope this will branch out to other efforts, where the adults in the community can show our youth that they care through other charitable involvement in our town,” Haber said. At the end of the collection period, the books will be separated and the schools will determine which are the most appropriate for the students.

Two months ago I wrote about how Plainville Optical came to be and now as the late great radio man used to say “Is the rest of the story”. Olde Canal Square was close to home and a relatively new plaza with a nice mix of local businesses already open. As expected the first year was tough waiting for customers to bring in prescriptions to be filled and for patients to make appointments with my associate Dr. Armando Rafael who established his Plainville Optometry practice in a sublet office space there. While preparing the new location I had requested my former business phone number be transferred and a yellow page advertisement was contracted but neither the phone number or the ad were published due to a mistake by the phone company representative. So the first year I had to rely on newspaper ads to get the word out and a rollover phone line to get my calls at the business. Business improved eventually using other advertising media and word of mouth became the most effective source of new clients. Each year afterward the people of Plainville and nearby towns helped the business grow. For 10 years we offered exams two days a week but in January 2004 we added Dr. Shreya Patel to offer exams a third day and in September 2009 Dr. Mark DiLoreto began his practice there and we now offer exams 4 days a week. The three optometrists also work together at an office in Meriden owned by Dr. Rafael and my wife Lori Lindberg L.O. By that time in 2009 the business had suffered two years of declining sales and revenue due in part to the poor economy but mostly due to lack of parking and a viable handicap space in the plaza. I began searching for a better location were I could control the destiny of the business. I made a serious offer for the bank building next door to Rite Aid Drug Store but the owner decided to lease to Liberty Bank. I then considered with less interest the two story framed house the VNA had occupied for years but it too had access issues and two floors which did not make much sense for retail eye care. In the spring of 2011 a real estate agent approached me to lease space where Blockbuster Video had vacated next to C.V.S. I had told her I’m only interested in moving if I buy a building that’s the right size and location close by. The very next day she called me about 28 East St. our present location. I was fortunate to have a working spouse to help with the purchase and remodel. The contractor was well known to me and he rushed the renovations and did very well only needing about 7 weeks and the Town of Plainville made sure I had few if any snags in the process. I was impressed with the interest and efficiency of all those who assisted the builder and myself. As we approached 2 years at 28 East St. we have survived a storm of the century, two tropical storms, and a second early winter storm that knocked out power in each occasion. Earlier this year we received three feet of snow which I had to carefully shovel off my flat roof to avoid a collapse or major leak. But any one of my customers know I will say it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my professional career. We have handicap access near the front door, more parking than necessary, and more room to care for our customers and the doctors’ patients. At Plainville Optical where Fashion and Value see eye to eye we look forward to another 20 years of great service to the community.

CL&P performs tree trimming in town By Monica Szakacz and Julie Sopchak Record-Journal weeklies

Crews from Connecticut Light & Power are continuing their routine work of trimming trees throughout local neighborhoods to clear away hazardous tree branches that can cause outages. CL&P has expanded its vegetation management program to trim and remove trees near power lines that pose a threat to the electrical distribution system. The program costs $53 million with 200 tree crews across the state who will perform tree maintenance and trimming along 4,420 miles of power lines, according to a CL&P press release. “We service 149 towns in this state, and crews are trimming, as weather permits, in some part of Connecticut every day,” said Mitch Gross, spokesperson for CL&P, adding that vegetation maintenance efforts is part of a long-term

was rather lucky considering some of the harsh weather conditions this season. “We were at the mercy of Mother Nature,” Karabin said. “But that being said, we’re having a wonderful harvest, we’re very fortunate. “We had the heavy rains, and then we had the extreme heat and so those are both ends of the spectrum that no farmer wants to deal with,” she added. Flooding wasn’t an issue with the farm. And with the heat, she said it was just a matter of waiting it out. Even tomatoes survived an early frost after Karabin said they took the risk of planting them early. “There was some early frost and we were basically unaffected by it,” Karabin said. “We won that round.” With summer being a success, Karabin said the outlook for the fall harvest is looking pretty good as well.

Raised beds helped him against the heavier rains of the season which did affect low-lying plots in the garden. One gardener “actually had frogs in the ditches.” That’s how wet it was at times. “Overall the year was a success and my garden is still producing,” he said. Larry Rosenfield, “master gardener” at Temple Beth David of Cheshire, called this year’s Mitzvah Garden at the Temple “spectacular.” The only issue this year was the excessive rain, he said. “Overall, our yields were substantial with minimal insect damage,” he said. This season the Cheshire Community Food Pantry created its inaugural garden. “With the help of the community, we were able to create and tend to a wonderful garden that helped provide fresh produce for our clients,” said CCFP Director Patty Hartmann. “Even

though we started late in the season, we had a bumper crop of eggplant and basil and several varieties of late season tomatoes.” Herbs such as rosemary and sage did equally well.

The Wallingford resident said her squash, cucumbers and tomatoes grew okay in her six raised beds, but the peppers didn’t fare well. In late summer, they are just beginning to flower. She rarely gets powdery mildew on her squash, but this year, she was out in her garden spraying her plants with a mixture of baking soda, water and soap. “You have to go with the weather. You can’t fight it,” she said. Insects were also a problem at Bartlem Park’s Community Garden with zucchini, kale, and cabbage, said gardener Jim Mertz. Aside from that, plots did “quite well,” according to Mertz and Rajeevan Nallakkandi. Tomatoes came in later than normal; however, the tomatoes did come in before the adjacent gardens produced, Mertz said. Zinnias and beans were also a success, according to Mertz and he had a “terrific early lettuce crop until the hot weather caused them to

Faiths come together for 40 Days of Worship By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

Forty days is a familiar timespan in Christianity. Most notably, it’s the number of days of Lent. But throughout September and October, churches around Connecticut will participate in 40 Days of Worship. An expression of a larger movement called Impact Connecticut, the concept is that each night for 40 days, a church in Connecticut will host general worship and praise. More than 50 churches and ministries are participating in the event, which began Sept. 4 and will run through

Oct. 14. Denominations of all types are participating. Southington churches The Tabernacle, Calvary Assembly of God, and Apple Valley Worship Center are co-sponsoring the event. Rev. William Tilley of CAG said the event is an opportunity for everyone to come together under one roof for the same purpose, regardless of background. “It’s an opportunity to just step away from life and the regular schedule of life and get together and in the presence of God and worship, not as one denomination, but one body,” Tilley said. “I have much joy and excitement anticipating what

God may do through this special series of meetings in Connecticut,” Pastor Ken Gray of Apple Valley Worship Center said in a statement. In Plainville, New Life Fellowship will participate. New Life, a non-denominational church, will host its night of worship Wednesday, Sept. 25 at Bethel Christian Church. Pastor Tim Whitton said, so far, for the churches that have held their worship nights, he heard turnout was great. For his service, Whitton said people from different churches will come together and sing in a choir. “We’re gonna be coming together and just praying for towns and cities and states in our nation and praying for healing,” Whitton said. “Just peace for our streets and neighbors.” For more information about the event, and a calendar of worship locations and nights, visit www.impactconnecticut.com.

Old paint cans — you know the type. The ones that sit in the corner of your garage, a long-dried dribble of color down the side. You can’t use it — the living room was painted another color five years ago — and you just missed the yearly paint take-back day. However, recycling old paint became easier this summer. In July, a new program run by the non-profit Paint Care allows residents to drop off up to five gallons of paint at participating locations year round. “This is a permanent program. This will function year round,” said Laura Panciera, program manager for Paint Care in Connecticut. The program got its start in 2011, when Gov. Dannel Malloy signed a law requiring paint manufacturers to manage the latex and oilbased paint that residents and contractors did not use when painting the interior and exterior of houses. Connecticut is the third state in the union to pass this kind of law. In 2009, in

Thanks to the cooperation of the paint industry, we will be able to increase our recycling, save money for municipalities and provide a valuable service to our citizens – all at no cost to state taxpayers.” Here’s how it works: in the past, residents had to take paint to a special Hazardous Household Waste facility, or wait until their towns had a hazardous waste “round up” day, to dispose of their old paint. Today, paint cans have a fee attached to the sales price. Think of it as a recycling deposit on a can of

response to Oregon’s paint recycling law, the American Coatings Association created Paint Care, a 501(c)3 that manages unused paint and is funded by a fee that is now included in the purchase of paint in the state. “As any homeowner in Connecticut knows, getting rid of unwanted paint is a difficult challenge,” said Daniel Esty, commissioner of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, back in 2011 when the law was passed. “With our new program, we will provide a convenient option for residents to safely recycle or dispose of unwanted paint by taking it to a participating retailer

“The only reality of sin, sickness, or death is the awful fact that unrealities seem real to human, erring belief, until God strips off their disguise” (Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy, 472:27-29). According to Christian Science beliefs, humans are subject to the laws of matter only so long as they believe they are real. The Christian Science religion refers to God as “Father-Mother” rather than the biblical “Father.” Though unconventional, this is not a major departure from mainstream Christianity, since God is believed to encompass both male and female (both were created “in the image of God”). The Christian Science religion teaches that Jesus is divine but not God, and that Jesus’ human nature is a separate entity from the divine Christ. “Jesus Christ is not God, as Jesus himself declared, but is the Son of God” (Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy, 361:12-13). “Jesus is the name of the man who, more than all other men, has presented Christ, the true idea of God, healing the sick and sinning and destroying the power of death” (Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy, 473:10-17). --religionfacts.com

Opinion

Letters to the Editor Yes, it’s a ghost town To the editor: Julie Sopchak has exposed the obvious but unspoken truth: We are a ghost town. That is evident. What is shocking is the attitude of the people the taxpayers hire/subsidize to provide support services to the business community, so that it can help us pay our taxes. The off ice manager of the Chamber of Commerce, a commercial entity housed in the municipal center primarily at our expense (it pays a nominal rental) hasn’t much to say about the mass exodus of downtown business. She has no clue, didn’t know they were folding, surmised maybe the problem is difficult landlords. What exactly does the chamber provide that warrants the taxpayers’ investment in it? Recently rehired economic development person Mark DeVoe is more vocal. Amply quoted by Julie, he said the problem is (not his performance) inexperienced business owners and lack of solid business plans. He cited

a less-than-friendly economic environment and opined that “It’s not a really good time to open a business.” Is the unspoken: “in Plainville”? With this public pronouncement by staff, can there be any hope for our downtown? Even more insulting are his comments about the aesthetics of the area, on the heels of a publicly-funded million-doll a r - p l u s m a k e o v e r, mishandled by a select committee. DeVoe was an ex-officio member of that committee. Little input from the community was enl i ste d o r co n s i d e re d . They knew best. That could be one reason people are disinterested and unsupportive. As a parting shot DeVoe mentioned “ blight,” a problem that has been addressed repeatedly at the untelevised Citizen’s Forum of the council meetings. Those ideas were squelched by him and Mr. Lee. Sadly, those beleaguered concerned citizens have been ignored, insulted and intimidated, finally, into silence. Janice Eisenhauer Plainville

Foley announces exploratory committee for 2014 Associated Press BRIDGEP ORT — Republican Tom Foley said Tuesday, Sept. 10, that he is weighing another run for Connecticut governor, attacking the record of the Democrat who defeated him in 2010 as he announced a committee to explore his prospects for the 2014 race. The Greenwich businessman joined the Republican fray with an event in Bridgeport, the city where results delayed by a ballot shortage lifted Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to a razor-thin victory. Foley used the backdrop to argue that Connecticut’s cities have suffered from an administration that he said has added to the burdens of middle-income families with tax increases, spent recklessly in areas that don’t benefit urban areas and driven away employers. “The direction governor Malloy has taken has been a big gamble with our state’s prospects,” he said. “It has failed miserably, damaged our state’s future, and has hit middle-income families and young people especially hard.” Foley, who spent $11 million of his own money on the 2010 campaign, said in the news

A look at Sept. 11 commemorations in US, abroad Associated Press NEW YORK CITY In a sadly familiar ceremony, friends and relatives of World Trade Center attack victims gathered at the National Sept. 11 Memorial plaza to call out the names of the dead and read messages to lost loved ones. A bell chimed to mark the moments when four hijacked jets crashed into the twin towers, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania, and again to mark the moments when the two skyscrapers collapsed. Several politicians attended, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former New York Gov. George Pataki, but none gave an address. The ceremony also recognized victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. WASHINGTON President Barack Obama held a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. on the White House’s South Lawn to mark the first attack in New

York. He was joined by wife Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden. A bugler played taps. Then, the president traveled to the Pentagon Sept. 11 memorial in Arlington, Va., where victims’ families, attack survivors and military officials laid a wreath and held a moment of silence at 9:37 a.m. to mark the moment that Flight 77 hit the building. Obama said, “Our hearts still ache for the futures snatched away, the lives that might have been.” PENNSYLVANIA More than 200 people gathered at the Flight 93 National Memorial to read the names of 40 passengers and crew killed when the airliner crashed into a field near the small town of Shanksville. Recalling the passengers and crew who had fought the hijackers, U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell told the assembled families and spectators, “We never know when we’ll be called to lay down our lives for others.” BOSTON A wreath-laying ceremony

Boughton, announced last month he was exploring a possible gubernatorial campaign. Also on the Republican side, Senate Minority Leader John McKinney of Fairfield

has said he plans to seek the nomination, and Wilton state Sen. Toni Boucher is also exploring a run for governor. Foley lost to Malloy in 2010 by 6,404 votes. Since then, Foley created the Connecticut Policy Institute, a public policy research group that examines state issues.

WA S H I N G T O N — Connecticut members of the House and Senate embraced President Obama’s decision to pursue a diplomatic solution to the Syrian crisis amid expressions of relief that Congress has delayed planned votes on the use of military force against the regime of Bashar Assad. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Greenwich, who has expressed opposition to the use of military force, issued a statement Tuesday night, Sept. 10, confirming that view. ”I remain deeply skeptical that a military attack will improve the situ-

ation on the ground, quiet the conflict, or improve our national security,” he said. Another opponent of a military strike, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., told reporters after the speech that he believed that the ”risks of military intervention still outweigh the potential benefits to the United States,” b ut h e a c k n owl e d ge d that it was a ”close call.” Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voted against a resolution authorizing a military strike. Murphy also said he ”has never seen the people of Connecticut as plugged into an issue” as they are to the Syrian situation.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., indicated in a statement that he was tilting against a military option and criticized the pending Senate resolution as ”too broadly written,” lacking international support and ”risks entangling us in Syria’s protracted civil war.” Two House members — Reps. Elizabeth Esty, D-Cheshire, and Rosa DeLauro, D-New Haven — said they continue to be undecided about a military strike. Rep. John B. Larson, D-East Hartford, applauded Obama for seeking a ”diplomatic and international answer to the problems in Syria.”

The mouth is a window into the health of the body. It can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. Dr. Pentti Nupponen will explore the latest science on oral pathology and its link with chronic diseases. It is estimated for 2013 that 232,340 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Approximately 39,620 deaths will occur from this disease alone. (U.S. Cancer Statistics Working Group). There are numerous reasons for breast tissue changes. This segment explores the possible intra-oral oriented reasons that are often over looked. Relying only on mammograms and not catching breast tissue changes 8-10 years earlier will put more women in danger of this deadly disease. This segment will examine the present day breast cancer screening and diagnosis and also “out of the box” screening and early detection of breast tissue changes. Once you understand the connection, it will all make sense. The speakers will evaluate the different treatment options women have today. Victoria Case’s story incorporates her struggle with extraordinary stresses in her life, dental history, sensitivity to metals and toxins, an out-patient cryoblation procedure (that freezes a tumor in minutes), and a life-threatening fight to overcome an infection in her right breast and its mysterious cause. This is the one course every woman in America age 17-70 should attend, as well as the men who love them. “The people who choose a more natural approach should not be intimidated, ridiculed, or threatened, and neither should practitioners who try to help them”. Saving Victoria’s Breasts Pentti J. Nupponen, DMD, MAGD, FIAOMT, AIAOMT is a full time holistic & cosmetic dentist, writer, researcher and national/international public speaker. He is a 1974 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine (DMD). In the year 2000, Dr. Nupponen achieved the status of Master Dentist in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD). He lectures worldwide and presents hands-on seminars to other practitioners, writes consumer & professional articles, presents professional and consumer seminars in nutrition, holistic and cosmetic dentistry, and detoxification. Joining Dr. Nupponen will be Fred Hughes, author of the book Saving Victoria’s Breasts, along with Brenda Kinder, Professional Thermographer and Victoria Case, about whom the book is written. Her story will leave you wanting to know more and is proof that truth is often stranger than fiction. Efforts to cure cancer and to prevent it in the first place will remain elusive until doctors, dentists, dental hygienists and insurance companies accept the oral pathology connection. If you think “out of the box”, this course is for you. COPIES OF THE BOOK WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE FOR $29.95

Six steps to improve your memory 1. Learn something Stimulating the brain helps it develop a resilience that allows us to fight off diseases like Alzheimer’s, says Paul D. Nussbaum, Ph.D, an adjunct professor of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine who has been working with AARP on its

brain health program. “Age doesn’t matter,” he says. “We have the ability to shape our brains throughout our lives.” 2. Sleep Getting fewer than six hours of sleep a night can raise the risk of stroke, according to research presented at a 2012 Associated Professional Sleep Societies meeting. 3. Eat right More than half your plate should be filled with green, leafy vegetables. Get plenty

of fish, nuts and olive oil; steer clear of refined carbs. A 2009 Columbia University study found that this kind of diet may help ward off Alzheimer’s. 4. Challenge yourself “The number one memory complaint people have is that they’re bad with names,” says neurologist Majid Fotuhi, M.D., Ph.D. “People need to stop whining and realize they can do it!” His prescription: Memorize three names a day — such as those of an

and roads. But Gross said crews will notify property owners if tree trimming and maintenance is required on their land. Property owners will also be given an informational packet that outlines the program, expectations and how to contact CL&P with concerns. “We notify property owners ahead of trimming,” Gross said, adding that depending on the type of trimming being done, property owners will receive either a verbal or written notice. All debris and brush will be taken away, but larger limbs will be cut and stacked at the request of property owners. Along with trimming and removal of hazardous trees near the power lines, crews will also inspect nearby vegetation. “All this work will be performed with a total commitment to public safety and to the safety of our crews,” Stotts said in the video.

Most of the damage was caused by trees.” Gross said there is tree trimming throughout the state every day, and the maintenance is done quite routinely. He said problematic branches are located by arborists working with contractors, as well as town tree wardens who call in to identify the trees. “This is a major initiative underway across our system to help improve reliability,” Gross said. “Trees are the No. 1 cause of outages.” According to Berlin Public Works Director Arthur Simonian, CL&P does not need a permit from the town to work along state highways

Amazing cardiac doctors. CENTRAL TO YOUR LIFE.

Chill out: Stress can kill Your reaction to a potentially stressful event is different from anyone else’s. How you react to stressors in your life is affected by such factors as: Genetics. The genes that control the stress response keep most people on a fairly even keel, only occasionally priming the body for fight or flight. Overactive or underactive stress responses may stem from slight differences in these genes. Life experiences. Strong stress reactions sometimes can be traced to traumatic events. People who suffered neglect or abuse as children tend to be particularly vulnerable to stress. The same is true of victims of violent crime, airplane crash survivors, military personnel, police officers and firefighters. You may have some friends who seem laid-back about almost everything and others who react strongly at the slightest stress. Most reactions to life stressors fall somewhere between those extremes.

Stressful events are a fact of life. And you may not be able to change your current situation. But you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on you. You can learn to identify what stresses you and how to take care of yourself physically and emotionally in the face of stressful situations. Stress management strategies include: --Eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise and plenty of sleep --Practicing relaxation techniques or learning to meditate --Fostering healthy friendships --Having a sense of humor --Seeking professional counseling when needed The payoff for learning to manage stress is peace of mind and — perhaps — a longer, healthier life. --mayoclinic.com

Conn. officials want better oversight of Amistad By Dave Collins Associated Press

35489R

HARTFORD — Connecticut’s top economic development official is asking the governor and the legislature for more authority to oversee the finances and operations of the state’s official flagship, the Amistad schooner, whose owner is facing questions about its spending of millions of dollars in taxpayer money. Catherine Smith, commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development, said in a threepage report released Tuesday, Sept. 10, that current law doesn’t allow the agency to impose requirements on lineitem budget recipients like Amistad America Inc., owner of the 129-foot Baltimore clipper, other than mandating clean audits. Dannel P. Malloy’s chief of staff, Mark Ojakian, had asked Smith to report back to him by Sept. 10 on what’s being done to improve the financial

accountability of the Amistad and its owner. The request came amid criticism by state Rep. Diana Urban, D-North Stonington, about Amistad America’s loss of its nonprofit status, lack of financial transparency and what she called questionable business partnerships. Smith said her agency needs more authority to impose performance conditions and more reporting requirements on budget recipients. Urban, meanwhile, called for the dissolution of Amistad America’s board of directors and the installation of new directors with more expertise in ship operations and fundraising. The state, however, has no such authority to impose board changes on private organizations. “I’m basically saying enough is enough,” Urban said Wednesday, Sept. 11. “I was elected to represent the In this March 25, 2010 photo, the U.S.-flagged vessel Amistad nears the port of Havana, taxpayers.

Former teammates now on different sidelines By Nate Brown

The Plainville Citizen

It’s never easy to play against a past team or old teammates. Former Boston Celtic Ray Allen struggled in his first game against his previous squad when the Miami Heat played host to the Beantown boys early last season. He even claimed he got caught up almost guarding the wrong team altogether. It looks as though the future Hall of Famer could take a couple lessons from a few former Plainville High School soccer players. In a non-conference game between the University of St. Joseph Blue Jays and Western Connecticut State University Colonials Saturday, Sept. 7, Kelsey Chacho’s Colonials were victorious over Tiana Saraceno’s Blue Jays, 2-1. What made the matchup of former Blue Devil teammates even more interesting was that the Plainville alums each scored a goal. “It was a great feeling to know that we both scored,” said Saraceno. “Seeing as she was the only one from Plainville from her team, and I was the only one from Plainville, and the fact that we both scored … it was just a great feeling.” While it was nice to be able to applaud a former teammate, Saraceno knew what she was on the field to do: compete and win. While she could catch up with Chacho after the game, it was all business during play. “I definitely knew I had to defend her and not let her be dangerous to my team,” said Saraceno. “I was just more happy to see her play well with her team.” Chacho was unavailable for comment. For Saraceno, though, having to set aside a personal relationship with a former teammate is nothing new. She and Blue Devil alum Becky Slivinsky of Albertus Magnus College have played against one another in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference the past two seasons. According to the girls, those matchups don’t differ from any other; They represent their colleges to the best of their ability. Slivinsky, though, welcomes the moments when she and Saraceno can let their guard down. “I’m always the one person to talk

Former PHS teammates, from left, Tiana Saraceno and Kelsey Chacho recently clashed at the college level, and each tallied a goal. on the field during a game,” Slivinksy said. “So when the ball’s on the other side of the field, I’ll stop and talk to Tiana. I try to keep things friendly.” They’re opponents these days, but the girls never fail to forget their roots, as old memories from their time together at Plainville come flooding back. “The first time I played Tiana, I just had a smile on my face because it’s so cool because she’s someone I played with in high school. She was such a great role model for me; she was my captain my junior year and she was always a hard worker,” said Slivinsky. “I remember we would have pasta suppers together as a team at Plainville, we would have sleepovers …Those were the best times of my life.” “I just love watching my former teammates play and seeing how much better they’ve become with their new teams and their new coaches,” Saraceno said. All three PHS alumna have started every game for their respective schools this season. At press time, Saraceno, a forward, and Chacho, a forward/midfielder, had recorded eight points and two points this year, respectively. Slivinsky, who recently made the switch from forward to defense, had a .667 shots-on-goal percentage.

Bores goes out on top By Sean Krofssik Special to The Citizen

said of his players. “They are like daughters. I loved every moment of it. And I’m going to miss it. I’m going to miss basketball as well. But I really loved softball and when March rolls around it’s going to be tough. But when I’m at the golf course and the beach and you guys are freezing, maybe I will get over it quickly.” He coached softball at DePaolo Middle School from 1978 to 1994 before becoming an assistant at Southington High School until he became head coach in 2002. Bores has been an assistant girls basketball coach at Southington High for 17 years and made an impact on his players and fellow coaches. “You don’t hang around and coach in the business unless you know how to deal with kids and put a lot of effort in what you do,” former Southington girls basketball coach Jim DiNello said. “‘Whenever a coach like John steps down, coaches feel that we are losing one of the best. He was fair and gave every ounce of energy he had both on and off the field. He really cares about the kids he coaches. He is a terrific coach and a terrific person.” Current SHS girls coach Mike Forgione said Bores kept things light at difficult times. “John is a loyal friend that was always there for the kids and wanted

It’s always good to go out on top and John Bores certainly did. The longtime Southington softball coach stepped down from his post before the start of the school year. “It was very difficult. But I’m going to be 63 in October,” Bores said Wednesday, Sept. 11. “My wife Lynn retired and we sold our house and are moving to (Boca Raton) Florida. We decided to move and we moved.” The Blue Knights won Bores’ last game 1-0 win over Mercy in the Class LL state championship game at West Haven’s Frank Biondi Softball Field in June. Bores gave it a few weeks after he secured his second state title, but by mid-July, he knew it was time. “Before the (championship) game I had tears in my eyes that this might be the last game I will ever coach,” Bores said. “I didn’t want to make that decision beforehand. I told the team a week and a half ago via text and email that I was stepping down.” The team was sad to see Bores go but happy for their championship coach. “I was really surprised but I was really happy at the same time,” former Blue Knight pitcher Jordyn Moquin said. “I was happy he was able to go out with a win. I know See Bores/ Page 21 he wanted to leave the program in a great position.” Moquin graduated from Southington in 2013 and was the winning pitcher in the Blue Knights’ championship win over Mercy. Moquin had a big hand in delivering Southington its 15th state title and the second under Bores. She finished with a 24-1 record, 0.47 ERA. Moquin is just starting at Mercy College where she will play softball. “He is a very good coach,” Moquin said. “He cares about us, but he knows when business is business.” Under Bores, Southington won 11 CCC divisional titles and appeared in five state title games. He finished his varsity coaching career with an overall record of 256-27 from 2002 John Bores. (Christopher Zajac / to 2013. “They meant a lot to me,” Bores Special to The Citizen)

of the Year award and was named Most Athletic by Plainville Athletic Backers and coaches. Mark Newman, current senior VP of the New York Yankees, saw Darren’s baseball talent and offered him a scholarship to play at Old Dominion University. There, he was a three-year starter in the outfield and a team captain as a senior. His team-leading 22 steals in 1991 put him second in the Colonial Conference. ODU was nationally-ranked in the Top 25, which allowed Darren to participate in the College World Series regionals two years.

say, ‘Stop sending the money until the ship ... is back on course.’” Urban criticized the DECD for lax oversight of Amistad America and said she doesn’t believe the agency needs more authority. She said Amistad America has been submitting yearly financial reports to the state and the DECD should have seen that the organization was having problems and informed the legislature. Urban first became concerned about the Amistad earlier this year after learning the organization lost its federal nonprofit status for failing to file required forms with the IRS. DECD officials recently said there was no evidence of impropriety by Amistad America and credited the New Haven-based organization for turning itself around after several years of financial problems, including the loss of $2.2 million a year in federal funding. The state, how-

She welcomed Smith’s proposals for more state oversight, and said the organization is working to get back its nonprofit status. “It’s been rough seas not only for this small nonprofit organization, but the economy in general,” Washington

to see our program do well,” Forgione said. “Our games are so competitive and he was there to be the calming effect and be the coach that made the mood a little lighter during our difficult conference schedule.” Bores taught English in Southington for 39 years before retiring in 2011. Bores and his wife Lynn have three sons who were all standout athletes at Plainville High School. Jeff, who lives in Plainville, and Kevin, who resides in Lewiston, Maine and their eldest son Scott lives in Jupiter, Fla. with his wife Audrey and twin grandsons, Tyler and Taylor. “It’s going to be nice watching them grow up,” Bores said. Southington athletic director Eric Swallow said Bores leaves behind a strong legacy at Southington. “He was a proven winner,” Swallow said. “He was a consummate professional. He was a well-liked teacher and well respected across the state as a softball coach. He was a true professional and was one of the coaches that everyone looked up to.”

ever, has contracted with an independent auditor to review Amistad America’s finances dating back to 2009, a review expected to be completed by November. A symbol of the fight against slavery, the Amistad is a replica of a ship that was taken over by African captives being brought to Cuba in 1839. They landed on Long Island but were captured and jailed in New Haven. With help from abolitionists, they won their freedom in a landmark case that started in Connecticut and ended in the U.S. Supreme Court. The state has invested nearly $9 million in the schooner, including $2.5 million for construction in 1999 and 2000 and $2 million for dredging and a dock in New Haven. Amistad America also gets $379,000 a year from the state for operations. H a n i f a Wa s h i n g t o n , Amistad America’s executive
