Friends and rivals leads high school’s Class of 2010 By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen

Citizen photo by Robin Lee Michel

Plainville High School Class of 2010 salutatorian Alex Salazar, left, and valedictorian Alyssa Martino first met at the Middle School of Plainville and over the years have become “study buddies” and friendly rivals. PHS graduation will be Monday, June 21.

After 40 years, PHS principal to retire By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen The reality of retirement is starting to set in for Gregory Ziogas, who has been an employee of Plainville Community Schools for the past 40 years. On May 6, as he gave his remarks at the National Honor Society induction, he felt himself choking up a little and tears welling as he realized this would be the last time to speak at the program. “Graduation will be difficult for me,” he said. “It’s been a great 40 years,” Ziogas said. Ziogas, who is a Bristol

resident, came to the school system in 1970, fresh out of Springfield College where he majored in education and minored in Spanish. He was a sixth-grade teacher at Linden Street School. When he and his wife, Connie, got married in 1971, the summer after his first year of teaching, his first students stood on the steps outside the church and threw confetti when the couple came outside. “I almost can still picture that first class,” he said. As much as he enjoyed See Retires, page 13

Alyssa Martino, 17, and Alex Salazar, 18, are not only at the top of the P l a i nv i l l e High School Class of 2010, they are at the top of their respec- Martino tive games. The two students are valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively, but were also named Plainville’s top scholar-athletes by the Connecticut Association of Schools — Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference. “To my knowledge, I don’t remember

when this has happened before,” said Gregory Ziogas, Plainville High School principal. Martino and Salazar’s competitive natures have driven them to succeed on the field and in the classrooms. Although they met in m i d d l e Salazar school, it wasn’t until they reached high school that the friendship took off. They refer to each other as “study buddies” and said they are always there for one another.

Library advocates for patrons’ privacy By Jessica Plaskett Special to The Citizen Privacy advocates have a friend in the Plainville Public Library. The library participated in the American Library Association’s first-ever Choose Privacy Week as a way to advocate for protecting patrons’ right to privacy. Library Director Peter Chase said the purpose of promoting awareness about privacy is to educate the public about the ever-increasing infringement of privacy and to create a national dialogue about privacy in a digital age. From grocery discount cards used to track purchase histories, to cell phones being able to track and eavesdrop, there are many ways people

lose their privacy without even realizing it, Chase said. Being asked to register personal information on Web sites - which can be sold for marketing purposes - is just one of those ways, he said. “There’s a lot of things we don’t question in our everyday lives and if we thought

more about it we wouldn’t be so free to give information away,” Chase said. “So many people say, ‘Well, I’m not doing anything criminal in my life,’ but what they don’t think about is the implications of people making

Historical tour takes in the sites of Southington’s past By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen

was a garbage dump, which was called Pigweed Park. The Village Improvement Society, an early version of the chamber, sought to clean it up, put in trees, sidewalks and monuments around the time of the U.S. Centennial,” he said. DiMauro, 53, said he has always been interested in history. From 1987 to 1997, he was town historian, the first appointed in the state after the law was passed by the Connecticut General Assembly. He was former director

of the Southington Historical Center; since April 15, he has been acting president of the historical society after the resignation of Robert W. Cusano, the longtime president. He is also well-known in the area as the former associate editor and writer for The Plainville Citizen, a contributor to The Southington Citizen, and previously, a staff writer and family living editor for The Observer newspaper. The tour will stop by the

Barnes Museum, 85 N. Main St.; however, due to time constraints, passengers will not be able to tour the former home of Amon Bradley. Philanthropist Bradley Barnes willed his 1836 home and contents to the town as a muse-

Ken DiMauro is passionate about history, which makes him the right man to lead the Saturday, May 22 historical site tour for the Southington Historical Society. This will be the third tour led by DiMauro, who is former Southington town historian and acting president of the local historical society. The last historical tour in Southington was in the early 2000s and was a tour of Lake Compounce. This year’s event will stop at numerous sites including the town green, First Congregational Church, Barnes Museum, Root House, Clark Brothers Bolt Co., Milldale Depot and other locations. At most stops, people will remain on the bus to hear commentary. However, passengers will walk various places including the town green and Oak Hill Cemetery.

“I’ve done stories and research over the years on local history, including the buildings and sites. For example, Oak Hill Cemetery originally was the center of town. In 1724, the first meetinghouse — the Congregational Church — was established there. The current Congregational Church on Main Street is the third such meetinghouse, which opened around 1830,” he said. The bus tour is being held to raise funds and provide publicity for the Southington Historical Society, which was established in 1965 and will be celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. The building at 239 Main St. was the town library until 1974 and the historical society gained use of the building after it was determined that the Sylvia Bradley addition must be used for historical purposes. DiMauro has a wealth of fascinating facts about the town. “The town green once

Cosmetology school opening beautiful for downtown By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen

The opening of the Inter national Institute of Cosmetology, at 65 Whiting St., could prove to be a beautiful impetus for oth- C. Gugliotti er businesses to move into downtown Plainville, officials said. The official ribbon-cutting and grand opening will be held Monday, May 17, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Carmelo Gugliotti, founder and director of the International Institute of Cosmetology, moved from

Argentina to Hartford with his wife and four sons in 1986. His first enterprise was a barbershop in the Little Italy section of Hartford. The business quickly took off, expanded into a hair salon and moved into a larger facility. Fast forward 15 years and the sons had developed three related enterprises. The business has also offered Le’Marca, its own hair care products since 2005. The second salon opened in 2006 in Rocky Hill and the first cosmetology school opened in 2002. Carmelo, who brings more than 35 years of salon experience to the classroom, is no stranger to winning in national and international hair styling arenas. Now he is

called upon to judge competitions. He was inducted in the National Cosmetology Association Hall of Renown, is past president of the National Cosmetology Association of Connecticut and also, vice president and creative director of Organization Mondiale Coiffure, a worldwide hairstylist’s organization boasting representation from 67 countries. Carmelo, 60, is global competition director for OMC International Competitions. Many family members remain in the business including his son, Martin, who has won numerous awards, including second place in a world championship and the 2007 OMC Global Hairstylist of the Year Award. Martin,

Police charge 16 motorists

The United Way of West Central Connecticut, serving the communities of Plainville, Bristol, Burlington and Plymouth, has announced its 19th Annual Day of Caring will be held on Friday, May 21 with a rain date of Monday, May 24. Organizers said the Day of Caring is chance for all individuals in area communities to give, advocate and volunteer. It’s a day to join hands, open hearts and show the community how to “Live United,” according to a press release from the United Way of West Central Connecticut. Day of Caring is an annual United Way sponsored event offering hundreds of people the opportunity to volunteer at non-profit agencies in our community. Day of Caring began in 1992 as a way to help employees of local corporations interact with human service agencies and has grown since then. While United Way promotes community service volunteer ef-

Four motorists were charged with operating an unregistered motor vehicle; three charged with failure to wear seatbelt; two charged with operating a motor vehicle without a license; and one motorist charged with unauthorized colored lights. Those charged with misdemeanor offenses are scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on May 10.

United Way is again looking for generous individuals who can donate their time and talents.

Privacy Continued from page 1 dossiers on them and what kinds of things they can imply about their lives and the loss of control that might bring.” Those sentiments are echoed on a new sign within the library stating, “I’m not an open book, I decide who sees what,” which is accompanied by this month’s book display about privacy. Although this was the first-ever privacy week, which ran from May 2 to 8, Chase said the library has always done everything possible to protect the privacy of its patrons. For example, once a book is returned to the library, staff members erase the name of the person who borrowed it. That way, if a government official ever requested the lending history of a person, it would simply be unavailable. The same goes for patrons’ Internet use, said Chase, since library staff erase all Internet files at the end of the day. “We believe strongly that what they’re reading and

Allen Syskowski, of Plainville, surveys the Privacy Week display at the Plainville Public Library, 56 E. Main St. what they’re viewing is a private matter,” said Chase. “It’s a general principle within all libraries.” Chase realized what it’s like firsthand to witness the privacy of individuals violated after the Patriot Act was passed in 2001. That law makes it possible for government officials to access lending histories of patrons in order to gather information about potential crime suspects. Chase had a gag order

placed on him by the FBI in 2005 after he refused to allow them access to records that year. The gag order on the librarians was issued under what’s known as a National Security Letter — an administrative subpoena for records that the FBI can issue without prior court approval. “We think that like spying on a voting booth, that’s why libraries are so much more involved in this than other organizations,” Chase said.

Chase said in Connecticut, patron records are declared confidential by state law. Although patrons seemed interested and informed in privacy issues after the Patriot Act was passed, he’s noticed much less awareness or concern in recent years. “There’s less awareness now than there was three years ago, and I just think people are more complacent now,” Chase said. “What we’re asking them to do is become more aware of the different ways people pry into their lives and make an educated decision, not just be swept away.” The privacy books will be on display until the end of May.

Angela Maycock, the American Library Association assistant director for the Office of Intellectual Freedom, agreed that libraries have long fought for privacy rights, long before the Patriot Act, which then intensified the struggle. “Libraries have been challenged over the years going back to the thirties and forties with Red Scare issues and law enforcement believing whatever people were reading, they were thinking,” Maycock said. “The ethics of librarianship is we don’t ask why people want a book and we don’t assume or judge users. We are simply providing access and people can form their own opinions and decide for themselves.”

Both top students often studied together and were members of the same clubs. Since she was a freshman, Martino has always held the goal to be the top student. When she came to the school last summer to work on the yearbook, after stopping in the main office to say hello to Ziogas, she decided to register for some harder courses for her senior year, just to ensure her cumulative average would be the highest. Sports play a huge role in her life and she headed the PHS basketball and soccer teams, achieving school soc-

cer records of 56 goals and 54 assists. She also played on a premier team, athletic conference teams and all-state team. She enjoyed coaching the Recreation Department’s co-ed basketball team for fourth- to sixth-graders and was named coach of the year. In February, Martino signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her soccer career on scholarship at Providence College, a NCAA Division I school. “I’m very competitive,” Martino said. “I’ve loved every team, had great coaches, love the thrill of it.” The math enthusiast has also been involved in many club activities such as National Honor Society, Spanish

National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society. “Being driven is good and bad,” Martino said. In her “spare” time, she works at Rita’s in Southington, and enjoys reading and shopping. Martino is very close to her family: Steve, her father, Holly, her mother, and her younger sisters, Carly and Stephanie. “My parents kept me in check. I can’t thank them enough,” she said. Traveling all over the Northeast for soccer games with her father has given them a lot of time to talk. “We would sometimes go to six soccer games in a weekend,” she said. “I can’t thank my parents enough for everything they always did.” At college she plans to study education with the intent to become an elementary or high school teacher. “I help out in the fourth-grade classroom,” she said. “I love those kids.

there, it’s all fun and new. I thought I could influence them, set them on the right foot,” Martino said. Coaching has been perfect preparation for teaching, she said. Salazar also was a top athlete in cross country, relay and swimming and diving, winning numerous awards and reaching the state finals. He was also involved in myriad activities in and outside of school, especially at his church, Our Lady of Mercy. Like Martino, he is also on the Spanish Honor Society and National Honor Society. This spring he and the Spanish Honor Society organized a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity and succeeded in raising $366 for the cause. The two students also were members of the Student Athlete Leadership Team. Although Salazar excels at academics and sports, his true love is art. He will not pursue athletics in college, preferring to focus on art and digital media. He applied — and was accepted — at eight

,INC.

colleges but decided to attend Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. At first he considered being a pharmacist but the arts ultimately “won.” Creating art gives him the avenue to express his life and emotions, without words, Salazar said. “I wanted to do something I’m happy with and is fulfilling. Art is me.” His parents, Marco and Cathy Salazar, and brother, Bryan, have been very supportive of him. “They pushed me past my limits. They pushed me to never give up. I can never express how thankful I am to them,” Salazar said. Martino and Salazar plan to stay in touch while in college and continue to be each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Reflecting on their high school years, they have only good things to say about PHS. “Our high school is the perfect size, I know everyone’s name and the faculty is like no other,” Martino said. She has great respect for Ziogas and recalls when she was a sophomore basketball player, Ziogas was extremely helpful in coaching her in making a specific shot. “I love the atmosphere,” Salazar said. “We are here for each other. It taught me a lot about life.” Although he didn’t like “all-nighters,” he did appreciate the hard work. “It’s been a helluva a ride but it will help me in the future, in the new chapter of my

Grace Church’s ‘gold box’ holds God’s love By Tiana Welles Special to The Citizen

The Rev. Steven Brisson has been at Grace Lutheran Church for five years now. It’s not an uncommon sight to see him leading worship with his guitar, not every Sunday, but regularly. His joyous attitude towards God comes through his voice and song. It also shows during the part of the service which he considers more challenging. This is when he calls all the children to the front of the altar and receives “The Gold Box.” A simple gold-colored shoe box is given to a different child every week to fill with a single object. When The Gold Box is opened, right there in the

for us. He admits it has caused a few laughs over the years, but it also causes a “theological and thinking moment” in the service “when everyone is focused on God’s love for us even in the (most unusual) little things.” He often turns to the children for their thoughts before sharing his own. He also mentioned with wonder the number of stuffed dogs that have shown up in The Gold Box over the years, as well as the toy World Wrestling Federation belt that made an appearance one Sunday. The first Sunday of every month is one of contemporary worship, and along with guitars, the youth group often presents an appropriate drama in place of the sermon. Following the First Sunday Worship is First Sunday Brunch, with everyone welcome. Brisson described the worship style at Grace Lutheran as “liturgical, having a set format, but with an informal and comfortable atmosphere.” The music is a blend of traditional and modern hymns, played on a digital keyboard, with all the sounds of the organ, strings and pi-

ano. The choir accompanies the music when occasion calls for it. The congregation of about 60 worshippers each Sunday enjoy the friendly, family-oriented atmosphere, he said. There is the Family Worship Room, accessible through french doors at the back of the sanctuary, to enable those with young children to hear the sermon through the speaker system. During worship, there is Children’s Church, which is a time during the main body of the service after the discussion about The Gold Box, when the children are escorted to a room where “they can hear and engage the message of God’s love for them in ways suited to their age,” Brisson said. The children rejoin worship in time to participate in Communion. Brisson said his goal is for the environment to be “welcoming … making it possible for people to participate.” As a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Brisson and his wife, Sarah, came to Plainville through the

Letters to the Editor

Ask residents, not bicyclists

To the editor: As a resident of Plainville, and specifically, the section of Plainville that is being considered to have the proposed bike path run right through it, I would like to express my concern and dismay at the handling of this situation. The residents of Robert Street and Robert Street Extension have not been notified or consulted directly with on the possibility of the bike path being sent right through their front yards. We had to read about it in the local newspapers. I understand that there is an event on June 13, and cyclists will be invited to “vote on”’ which route they like best. That is very nice, but I would like to remind you about the taxes paid by peo-

ple along the proposed route, and the property values that will be reduced by having a bike path, literally, mere feet outside our front windows. The modest homes in this neighborhood are situated on small lots in close proximity to the street, as noted in the report to the town. The proposal lists Robert Street Extension as a quiet, low-traffic area. That is pretty accurate most days and that is what I looked for in purchasing property there. This construction, if allowed to happen, will change the integrity of that area. In an article in one newspaper, Jim Cassidy, who was involved in planning for this project, was quoted as saying “Why don’t we let the cyclists decide?” Somehow, I think this is flawed logic. Shouldn’t we let the property owners/taxpayers decide?

Plainville is the only town that will be utilizing local streets. Now, I am not sure if anyone on the town council or others involved in this planning have taken a bicycle ride down Robert Street and Robert Street Extension, but it is a very dangerous ride. The stop sign at the top of the hill where Robert Street intersects with Usher Avenue is a very narrow section of road, and most people don’t even stop at it. Then, continuing on down the hill, bicycles can get going at speeds of about 30 to 40 miles per hour. If a car backing out of a driveway on that street does not detect this, there will be accidents. I urge members of the town council and the town manager’s office to reconsider this plan. Patricia Sawczuk Plainville

Budget cuts hurt youth most

To the editor: If the proposed budget is accepted or rejected on May 11, the children of Plainville are going to pay the cost. The budget, as now proposed, further curtails “general government” spending by .5 percent and further reduces the board of education budget by 1.3 percent. In addition, more than 30 percent of the reductions in general government budgets have a direct negative impact on the youth of our community. To me this clearly indicates that something is wrong, and I am truly concerned by the fact that the parents of our youth are not getting out and expressing their opinions in the allday budget voting process; 13 percent voting is not “good,” it is shameful!

years; earned, I say, by the most dedicated efforts by the highly educated and skilled educators and administrators employed in our school district. Perhaps we have attained the most unfortunate position where the board of education will be forced to closely examine extracurricular activities on a cost-per-participant basis; assigning all costs associated with that activity, (coaches, transportation, additional insurance and administrative costs, etc.) and either curtail those that have the highest cost per participant or operate them on a cost-to-participant basis. I would hope that this action is not required as these activities are essential in the education process for our youth. We have definitely reached the point in history when 100 percent of the voting age populations must actively participate in process for the preparation of our younger citizens to function effectively and intelligently in the 21st century.

Art protégés Photos courtesy of Peter Chase

More than 500 people attended the Plainville Community Schools art show at the Plainville Public Library, 56 E. Main St., on Friday, May 7, during an evening reception. More than 1,000 pieces of art will be on display at library through May. Guests were treated to refreshments made by the culinary arts students.

Dominic Pedrolini, a thirdgrader at Wheeler School, shows the book he wrote and illustrated, “The Magic Whale.” He made the cover art from yarn.

Elizabeth Susco, a secondgrader at Linden Street School, displays her collage of different textures made from beans, sandpaper and fabric.

Valerie Knapp, a senior at Plainville High School, stands with her self-portrait done with pastel and acrylic.

Retires Continued from page 1 teaching, this sports enthusiast and athlete also wanted to coach. While in college he played basketball and later played semi-professional basketball as a guard and forward with the New England Regents. In the mid-1970s, he moved to Plainville Junior High School to teach Spanish and reading; he also coached high school basketball and soccer. He later became the high school athletic director. In the meantime he earned his master’s and sixth-year degrees from Central Connecticut State University. Moving up the administrative ladder, in 1992 he became the assistant principal at PHS and in 2004, the principal. To him, it was a logical progression. “Administration goes hand in hand with coaching,” Ziogas said. Ziogas, who will be 62 in August, stopped playing sports when he was in his early 50s and last coached in 1987. He had considered retiring in past years, however, “I just couldn’t separate myself from PHS,” he said. “It’s hard to walk away from what you love.” Ziogas decided with the dramatic changes in education, such as the intense reliance on technology and

When he was in college, students didn’t learn keyboarding; only those in the secretarial field did so and that was on typewriters. The budget has also become an annual struggle and challenge to make cuts without jeopardizing people’s jobs or student activities, or increasing class sizes. “I’m feeling I don’t have the ambition to do this anymore,” he said. Ziogas said his wife fully supports his decision. He calls his wife “my inspira-

tion.” Their life together has had “three critical points. First, marrying her. Second, 21 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was very emotional, but she pulled through it. And third, she is a great sounding board, a voice of reason.” When he was younger he was more volatile — “I’m Italian and Greek,” he said — and his wife’s even temperament has influenced him to mellow a bit. “We have a great relationship.” During their marriage, they raised three children, Craig, Ginny and Todd and now have eight grandchildren: seven girls and one boy.

Retirement will give him more family time. Working with his wife, who is the main office professional, has been easy, Ziogas said. She actually was hired for that position years before he came to PHS, he said, and it is he who is the latecomer to the school. “She’s great at her job,” which she will be continuing for now as she has not made plans to retire. Ziogas describes PHS as “a diamond high school. It’s a gem.” He said it is because of the atmosphere of family between staff and students. “From the top to the bottom” the students are terrific, Ziogas said. “There are kids who don’t try too hard, but they’re still great kids.” He said he also forged good relationships with the students and their parents, many whom he taught when they were young. Plainville has an exemplary school system, which is why many people who have grown up here have decided to stay in town to raise their own families, he said. When first out of college and throughout his career he could have taught in other towns, however, “I picked Plainville because there’s something different about it. There is a concern for the welfare of the kids. That’s why I wanted to be part of it,” he said. There have been numer-

ous challenges while he has been principal, yet all goals have been accomplished, he said. He referred to the recent accreditation process through New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the extensive school renovation project, which he called “an exhausting challenge.” “Mr. Ziogas has spent a lifetime contributing to improving the lives of Plainville’s students. He has been a tremendous role model for our students and staff and we have all benefited greatly from having Greg spend his career in Plainville,” said Kathleen Binkowski, superintendent of Plainville Community Schools. “We will miss him but wish him well as he moves to the next level of his life.” Now he’s looking forward to retiring, though he has not made any specific plans. “I’ve never had a summer off since I was 12 years old,” he said. Further down the road he may consider part-time work in a different career or as an interim administrator or doing part-time work. “Right now I’m focused on getting to the finish line.” He will cross the finish line on June 30 when he packs up his office and leaves. “It’ll be a tough day. I’ve been very blessed,” he said. “I will really miss it.”

‘Gold Box’ Continued from page 10

ELCA’s “call process,” a mutual pairing service where both the members of the church and the prospective pastor communicate what they are looking for, and then open a dialogue over several months’ time. The members of Grace Lutheran Church, or “Grace” as it is affectionately called by members, decided Brisson was their man about five years ago. Originally from Bellingham, Mass. and trained as a chemist, Brisson found he moved into ministry in slow steps until it became obvious to him that his path was going towards full-time ministry, leading him to enter the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia in 1997. Grace Lutheran was

founded in 1957 and first met at Linden Street School, led by the Rev. Darvin Herman. A groundbreaking worship service took place on May 21, 1959, and the cornerstone was laid just weeks later on June 28. On May 22, 1960, one year after construction began, the doors of the new home of the church were opened at 222 Farmington Ave. The small church has large heart and is involved in numerous local activities with groups like PARC, Walk for Life, and the Plainville Community Food Pantry. It also collects for charities such as ELCA World Hunger, and more recently, Haiti Relief. A prayer shawl ministry provides warmth, comfort and prayers to those who receive a homemade shawl. As

a member of the Plainville Conference of Churches, it participates in Food For Friends, a collective ministry that provides a hot meal on Wednesday evenings, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at the Congregational Church of Plainville. Each church involved provides the meal for one week in turn. Brisson noted that from its humble start of just a handful of people at the first meal, Food for Friends has grown to serving an average of 60 or more people on Wednesday nights. Grace Lutheran Church services are held at 9 a.m. on Sundays, and all are welcome. For more information, call (860) 747-5191 or visit www.graceinplainville.org.

Plainville Briefs Adoption fundraiser

Clean up after pets

Help us Adopt Little Oksana will be held Saturday, May 15, from 6 to 11 p.m., at Trinity on Main, 69 Main St., New Britain. A couple from Plainville would like to adopt Oksana, who is from Ukraine. There will be a buffet, dancing, dessert and a coffee bar. There will be a raffle, entertainment by The Glamour Girls and a cash bar. Last year, Oksana came and stayed with the Rowes during the summer and she will be returning again this summer. The family wants to adopt her. For tickets, contact Renee Rowe at (860) 793-0847.

Parks And Recreation Department officials would like to remind residents to please clean up after their pets in the parks. Dog walk bag receptacles are available at Norton and Paderewski parks. It is not fair to other people who use the parks and is unsanitary to leave animal waste. Animal control will be checking the parks periodically. Anyone not cleaning up after their pets will be fined $60 by town ordinance.

Mark and Linda Fongemie

Mark Dennis Fongemie, 55, and his wife Linda Susan (Insalaco) Fongemie, 50, of Kensington, died May 1, 2010, as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was born in Derry, N.H., and was the son of Si-

mone (Chasse) Fongemie, of New Britain. Mark and his mother moved to New Britain when he was a child. He was a longtime former employee of Stanley Works in New Britain, and was most recently employed as a lab manager at Terracon Consulting Inc. in Rocky Hill. She was born in New Britain and grew up in Newington. She was the daughter of the late Angelo and Maria (Guidace) Insalaco. She was employed at the Hospital of Central Connecticut with ACS Health Solutions, and was formerly a pharmacy technician, also at the hospital. Mark and Linda were mar-

ried on July 14, 1977 and had enjoyed nearly 33 years of marriage together. Family was of utmost importance to them. It brought them great joy to see their daughters mature into women and succeed in their endeavors. Their grandson was the center of their lives. Together, their favorite pastimes included fishing, boating, vacationing at Cedar Island, riding their motorcycle, and most of all spending time with their grandson. Mark was a hard working, compassionate, and genuine man who would — and did — do everything for his family and friends. He was savvy in anything mechanical or hands-on, and could fix any-

thing. Linda took pride in being a loyal friend, sister, aunt, mother and grandmother. She opened her heart and home to all who needed her. She was a past president of CSHP, and served as a Girl Scout leader for her daughters for more than 20 years. Linda’s hardest challenge was her battle with multiple sclerosis. She never let her illness control how she lived her life. Surviving are two daughters, Leah (Fongemie) Paone and her husband, Tufic Adib, of Portland, and Haley Fongemie, of Kensington; a grandson, Evan Mark Paone; Linda’s two sisters, Mary Insalaco, of Plainville, and

I was impressed by the family, their business and the way they presented themselves.” To become a school facility, the building underwent a complete transformation. The façade was torn off and totally remodeled, as was the inside, as it was renovated into a state-of-the-art facility with the most modern equip-

ment. “Now that I’ve seen what they have done to remodel 65 Whiting St., I’m awed,” DeVoe said. “The investment made by the Gugliotti family is tremendous. We are very happy they chose Plainville.” The International Institute of Cosmetology is a Wella Signature School and exclusive Pivot Point Member School, according to company information.

Up and down play continues for Lady Blue Devils By Mark Pukalo Special to The Citizen

It was two steps forward and one step back for the Plainville softball team in a three-day, three-game stretch last week. The Lady Blue Devils blanked Bulkeley and Platt to get back to .500 (6-6) before East Catholic pitcher Alyssa Wolejko shut the door on their mini-run Friday. Plainville needed to change course after losing three of four games coming into last week, scoring two or less runs in the losses. A matchup with struggling Bulkeley Wednesday in Hartford came at just the right time.

Coach Jen Micowski said it was important to set the tone early, then stay consistent, and that’s what the Devils did. Plainville scored six runs in the first inning and 12 in the second on the way to

a 21-0 victory in five innings. Katie Treado pitched two innings, without giving up a hit, and Tabi Arnold gave up two over the final three innings. Arnold, a sophomore, also knocked in three runs. “She has really stepped up and showed a lot of leadership,” Micowski said of Arnold. “She challenged herself to make an impact and she’s done a good job.” Shelby Marquis added a home run and Becky Slivinsky had a triple for Plainville against Bulkeley. Marquis, a senior, followed that up with three hits, including a double in the 5-0 victory over Platt in Meriden Thursday. “Shelby has consistently come through for us all season,” Micowski said. Micowski called her team’s performance against Platt its “best collective effort of the season.” Treado was outstanding, holding Platt hitless for five innings. “We have relied on her for

three years,” Micowski said of Treado, a senior. “She gives us a chance to win every game. She’s not overpowering, but she finds a way to get it done.” Treado simply makes teams hit the ball and it’s up to the defense. “Our defense was perfect against Platt,” Micowski said. “The hits they got, they earned them.” Plainville was hoping for a third straight road victory at East Catholic, but Alyssa Wolejko had other ideas. “Our bats went silent,” Micowski said. Wolejko, a senior who holds all of East Catholic’s pitching records, struck out 17 for a 5-0 victory over the Blue Devils in Manchester. “[Wolejko] jumped ahead on us in the count a lot and then worked the outside corner well,” Micowski said. “We didn’t go down looking much, but we couldn’t get to that outside pitch. “We were hoping the way See Softball, next page

Coach has high hopes for relay team By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

Heading into this week, the Plainville High School boys track and field team’s 4x100 relay team had finished first in all but one of its races this season. The foursome is comprised of Ryan Martel, Adam Foster, Chris Saunders and Adrian Toporski. “They’re not the fastest kids, but we have the best handoffs in the league. And certainly, that’s what helps us,” PHS coach Shaun Berard said. “I know the kids don’t like practicing the handoffs; they make comments, they grunt every time we practice them. But we practice them a couple of times a week, and do them the right way. And that’s what gives them a couple extra feet.” Martel, Foster and Toporski also were members of the 4x100 team last year, and along with Hector Rivera, finished fourth at the CIAC Class M state meet. Rivera opted not to come out for track this

year, but the 4x100 team has continued to thrive. The new guy, Saunders, has fit right in. “He came out as a freshman, and wasn’t really fast, but stuck it out and tried,” Berard said of Saunders, now a junior. “As a sophomore, it’s like ‘this kid is looking a little bit faster.’ Junior year, it’s like ‘wow, he can sprint.’ He’s a little bit older and a lot stronger, and he’s helping us out.” Berard believes his 4x100 team has what it takes to, once again, finish in the top five at the Class M meet, which would earn it a spot in the State Open. “They’re already faster than they were at this point last year,” Berard said. “So, hopefully, for the states and State Open they’ll be peaking out.” Helped out by its 4x100 team, Plainville topped Platt last week to improve to 4-2 on the season. Also scoring a lot of points for the Blue Devils this year have been hurdler Nick LaBella, and jumpers Chase Tarca and Martel.

After winning just three of its first 10 games to start the season, the Plainville High School baseball team has turned things around as of late. A 32 victory over Wethersfield on Friday improved the Blue Devils’ record to 6-7. Brett Litke had two homeruns against Wethersfield, including a walkoff blast.

Young tennis team has taken its lumps this spring By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

The usually upbeat Chuck Radda did not attempt to sugarcoat his Plainville High School tennis team’s recent play. “It’s a little hard to put a positive spin on the last six matches,” the veteran coach said. The Lady Blue Devils lost a heartbreaker, 4-3, to Rockville two weeks back, and the locals haven’t gotten close to chalking up a win since. Over the course of its next five matches, Plainville won just three of 35 games. Radda pointed out that his troops faced some tough opponents during that stretch, including Newington and Bristol Central. But he’s not using that as an excuse. “We’d like to be competitive, at least,” Radda said, “and

we’re far from that.” However, through it all, the young Lady Blue Devils have kept their chin up. “I don’t think the girls are necessarily dispirited; for one thing, more of them are getting a chance to play as we try to fill in the holes in the lineup,” said Radda, who lost three all-conference players to graduation last spring. “I guess I’m trying to catch lightning in a bottle, hoping

that someone will seize the opportunity and pull ahead of the field. So far it hasn’t happened.” Wins have proven hard to come by, but Radda said he

has received a “really good effort” from his top three singles players — Jess Foertsch, Sarah Kane and Sam Zaza. Also, Radda likes the work the No. 1 doubles team of

Ashley Raynock and Abby Szach has turned in. The duo won seven of its first 10 matches this spring, and is on track to qualify for the state tournament.

For golfers change in conference has worked out well By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen In the Northwest Conference, the Plainville High School golf team played the role of David, while Berlin, East

Catholic, Farmington, Northwest Catholic and RHAM were the towering, powerful Goliath character. But since making the leap to the Central Connecticut Conference this year, the PHS golf team has transformed into one of the big guys.

The Blue Devils defeated Bulkeley and Platt at Tunxis Plantation last week to improve to 6-1 in the CCC (8-3 overall). Has the move to the CCC South Division — viewed as a less-competitive golf conference than the now defunct NWC — been a positive one for Plainville? “Absolutely,” said PHS coach Steve Guerriero. Led by co-match medalists Austin Provost and Aaron Forino, Plainville carded a

season-best 169 against Bulkeley. Provost and Forino shot 39. They were followed by teammates Andrew Chapman (45), Andrew Hamel (46) and Jake Barrett (47). Two days before besting Bulkeley, the Blue Devils handled Platt, 175-207. Provost was match medalist with a 40. Rounding out the Plainville slate were Barrett (44), Forino (45) and Hamel (46). Guerriero likes the way Forino’s game has rounded

into shape this spring. “That was a really good effort on his part,” the veteran coach said of the junior’s performance against Bulkeley. “That 39 is great.” “I expect big things from him this year, and next year,” he added. In fact, with several varsity-tested players returning in 2011, Guerriero is hoping for big things all around next season. “I don’t want to look that far ahead, but they have expectations, and I have expectations,” he said.
