Town Memorial has local benefactor mulls school projects By Ashley Kus Citizen staff

Veterans Memorial Park may have a Gold Star memorial in the near future, thanks to one resident.

By Ashley Kus Citizen staff

The Town Council is looking to utilize state reimbursements to help cover the cost of three school renovation projects estimated at more than $20 million. “I think it’s prudent for the town to take advantage of that rate,” Town Manager Robert Lee said. The town is looking to renovate Wheeler Elementary School, install a new roof at Middle School of Plainville and pave the parking lot at Plainville High School. Together, the three projects are estimated to cost $24 million. Currently, the Wheeler project is eligible for 64 percent reimbursement from the state if the town has a referendum before June 30. Taking the state reimbursement

During the Monday, Nov. 21 Town Council meeting, resident Bob Doolittle presented a proposal and design plan for the memorial, which would have a stone and base with black lettering and would cost approximately $2,300. Doolittle said he intends to pay for the memorial.

The Town Council decided to form a committee to help make the idea a reality.

“This is a very generous offer you are making,” Council Chairwoman Kathy Pugliese said.

Doolittle said he got the idea on a recent trip to Arizona, where he saw a Gold Star memorial in a park. “Next to the sidewalk was a stone and that stone just stuck with me,” Doolittle said. After doing some research, Doolittle brought the pro-

located next to the new Linden Street School, are being planned for the site and surrounding area.

With demolition complete at Old Linden Street School, Plainville is now looking at a design for the empty site that can be used and enjoyed by the community.

“One unique component of the proposal is a sun dial to be donated by the DiMinno family in memory of their daughter Mary Rose,” said Town Manager Robert Lee.

PETS OF THE WEEK

Easel is a sweet, quiet young boy who was befriended by a mechanic at a shop. Easel was always very cautious, because he has a birth deformity making one of his legs useless. Removal of the leg is not recommended as it does not cause him any pain and he has lived with it his whole life. Easel’s tiny look-a-like is Bearberry. He and his litter mates were found at just four weeks old. With the holidays coming, it’s important to research how to cat proof your home, which would include an artificial tree. For more information, call 860-479-5173 or visit www.hucatrescue.org for a video of Easel and more.

A group of Middle School of Plainville students recently attended the UConn Engineering Ambassadors’ STEM Night at the Connecticut Science Center, accompanied by assistant principal Aimee Roberts and faculty member Camille Westfall.

Getting creative with cardboard

School News Project Graduation Shop to donate - Shop to donate at Five Below, Plainville, Dec 10 to 24.

Louis Toffolon Elementary School students participated in the second annual Cardboard Challenge, culminating with the Day of Play celebration recently.

A percentage of purchases will be donated to Project Graduation. Present a voucher for the proceeds. Dining books - Dining & Activity Books are available for purchase until the end of December.

Over the last two months, kindergarten through fifth grade students worked independently, with siblings or friends, or with the support of parents and guardians to construct anything they could imagine made from cardboard and recycled materials.

Meeting - The Project Graduation committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday, Dec 7, 7 p.m., at the Plainville YMCA. All volunteers are welcome.

Each grade level played with the creations of their peers. Students were impressed with the creativity displayed; from drum sets, to a pirate ship, to a variety of skee ball games.

‘Take a whack for Interact’ Plainville High School’s fifth annual “Take a whack for Interact” event, held during the Homecoming weekend football game in October, was a success thanks to the efforts and generosity of many. The event is organized and hosted each year by the high school’s Interact Club (the high school level of Rotary International), a service-based club involved in fundraising events for charity. The group, including club advisor and high school fac-

ulty member Judy Hahn, also hosts events for children and senior citizens, including the annual Senior Citizen Prom. In preparation for the “take a whack” event each year, New England Auto Sales of Plainville has donated a safety-prepped, used car, which is towed to the high school’s back parking lot in proximity to the football field. The Interact Club charges game attendees to hit the car with a sledge hammer. The cars are spray painted by the club mem-

bers and advisors with words that represent things that Interact hopes to combat and “smash” through charitable efforts. Words include: hatred, oppression, hunger, poverty, cancer, thirst, polio, disease, etc. Each year the club members vote to determine where the proceeds of the event will go. Donations have been made to “Make a Wish,” the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Pediatric Cancer Research Center and Shelter Box – an organization that provides a self-contained survival box that is tracked and used around the world. This year’s recipient has not yet been determined. – Press Release

EDITORIAL

New legislature, same problems Now that the election is over, we know who we’re sending to Hartford to begin a new legislative session in the new year.

that’s about $68 million in the red.

We also know that they’ll be working under the same dark deficit cloud that’s been hanging over the state Capitol for far too long.

Clearly, the General Assembly and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy are still a long way from solving the ongoing financial woes of a state that, by some measures, has never fully recovered from the recession of 2008.

The newcomers as well as veterans will be called upon to work on a two-year budget that’s already projected to be $1.3 billion short, with recent estimates showing tax revenue on a continuous slide through fiscal year 2019. Meanwhile, we’re only halfway through a fiscal year

Already this fiscal year, the state has cut more than $800 million in spending and has laid off nearly 1,100 workers, with 500 more layoffs set for January. State agency heads have provided Malloy with various options to accommodate a “likely” 10 percent cut in discretionary funding.

Letter to the Editor Grateful for support

my co-campaign managers, Scott and Andrea Saunders. To the editor: Thank you to all the volunteers who helped spread our To the people of the 22nd message of change for ConDistrict – Plainville and the necticut through joining me west end of New Britain – I in door-knocking, writing am humbled by the support postcards to residents, and I received from you on Elecmaking phone calls. It was tion Day. I could not have done it without my dedicated a true team effort, and I am very grateful to everyone that campaign team, especially helped.

Letters Policy Email letters to news@theplainvillecitizen.com; mail to 500 South Broad St., Meriden, CT 06450 or fax to 203-639-0210. The Citizen will print only one letter per person each month. Letters should be approximately 300 words. We reserve the right to edit letters. Letters should be on topics of general interest to the community. We do not list names of people, organizations and businesses being thanked. Names of businesses are not allowed. Letters must be signed and names will appear in print. Include a phone number so The Citizen can contact you for verification. Letters must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday to be considered for publication the following Thursday.

I would also like to thank our current state representative, Betty Boukus, for her many years of service to our community, and for her well wishes for my success. We have many tough decisions to make this year during the legislative session to get our state back on track, but I am excited to get up to Hartford and serve as your voice at the State Capitol. I should know my committee assignments by the end of December. I look forward to working together with legislators from all parties to make Connecticut a better place for all. Once again, thank you, the voters, for your support. Dr. Bill Petit Plainville

Chronic underfunding of the Teachers’ Retirement System and the State Employees’ Retirement System is an area of great concern, calling for about $302 million in additional funding next year. Retiree health costs may add $66 million to that total. Other bills coming due soon pertain to previous state borrowing to balance the budget, property-tax offsets, and transportation improvements. The cost-cutting options presented to Malloy by department heads include closing some DMV offices; cutting housing subsidies for people

with AIDS; privatizing services for more people with intellectual or developmental disabilities; eliminating daycare subsidies for thousands of children; cutting financial aid at the University of Connecticut or eliminating 286 staff positions there; and eliminating a program that helps veterans find jobs. This situation didn’t arise overnight — “I don’t believe people understand that a lack of paying the bills as they should have been paid has led to the current difficulties the state of Connecticut is living with,” the governor recently told an As-

sociate Press reporter. Regardless, only Malloy working with the new General Assembly, can put the state back on its financial feet. With the changes made on Nov. 8 — Republicans now at parity with Democrats in the Senate, and some new faces in the House, including in leadership positions — the coming session presents an opportunity for elected officials in Hartford to work together to put this state on a sounder financial footing. – Originally published in the Meriden Record-Journal

Q RiverWATCH program is here The Quinnipiac River Watershed Association has begun a program to encourage citizens and residents of the watershed and beyond to report illegal or harmful activities. The program will be known as “Q RiverWATCH” and the organization hopes it will lead to a cleaner river and environment.

and problems with erosion control from ongoing development as well as unpermitted wetland filling.

“The best resources are our citizens who are already out there enjoying and exploring our river and tributaries,” said former QRWA Executive Director Steve Theriault. “We’re hoping that people take the time when enjoying the river to look around, sniff around and see what’s going on in the vicinity.”

More than two decades ago, the QRWA began a RiverWatch program which was successful, with reports coming in from far and wide.

The Board of Directors approved the program with Theriault administering from the QRWA’s headquarters on Oregon Road in Meriden. The types of problems the group expects to uncover include illegal discharges to the river or tributaries, illegal dumping, unpermitted diversions (withdrawals of water), threats to groundwater resources, non-point sources pollution (unregulated discharges which run into sewers, drainpipes, etc.)

“The Quinnipiac River’s watershed is a heavily industrialized and populated area and there are many competing uses which require oversight,” Theriault said.

“We will direct those who call in to the appropriate agency responsible for enforcing environmental laws, but we will primarily be looking for problems in the Quinnipiac’s watershed,” Theriault added. There will be an answering machine to take calls on off hours. Citizens can help by reporting any suspicious behavior, odors, off-color water, dumping of garbage, chemicals or other items into streams, ponds or wetlands, and illegal digging or dredging. The number for reporting suspected environmental violations is 860-302-

8099. The backup number is 203-237-2237. Tips will be logged and the appropriate local, state or federal agencies contacted, including the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as well as municipal wetlands, environmental enforcement and planning officials. The phone will not be manned but callers should leave a message any time of the day or night. Citizens should leave their name and phone number unless desiring an anonymous tip. Follow up is possible by calling the same reporting number. The Quinnipiac River Watershed Association is dedicated to the preservation of the Quinnipiac River and its watershed. The Quinnipiac River begins in Farmington and goes through Plainville, Southington, Cheshire, Meriden, Wallingford, North Haven and New Haven. For more information, visit QRWA.org.

Medication drop box

The Plainville-Southington Health District has set up a medication drop box at the Plainville Police Department, 19 Neal Court, for the disposal of unused and expired medication.

posal, along with a design, to Town Manager Robert Lee. “We could set up a separate fund for any donations that are made,” Lee said. “I would recommend that the council form a temporary committee.”

The medication drop box is located in the lobby and can be accessed 24 hours a day/seven days a week. This is a confidential free service. Flushing unwanted medications down toilets or rinsing medications down a sink can be hazardous.

Pugliese, along with councilors Scott Saunders and Deborah Tompkins, will be on the committee.

Pharmaceuticals have been found to cause water pollution in groundwater, rivers, lakes; it impacts drinking water and has adverse effects on septic systems, sewage treatment plants, fish and aquatic wildlife. The drop boxes can accept the following: • Prescriptions • Over the counter medications • Vitamins/supplements • Medication lotions, patches and ointments • Medication samples • Pet medications

The following medications are not accepted in the drop boxes: inhalers, needles (sharps), hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans, or hazardous waste.

family’s proposal at a recent meeting.

The sun dial will be made in England and designed for Mary Rose Faith DiMinno, who died three years ago at age 8 after suffering seizures throughout her life.

Don’t be caught in the cold!

Her father, Kevin DiMinno, said his daughter, a former student of the new Linden Street School, loved playing outside. “We’re looking for a way to honor her and keep her memory alive,” he said.

The Gold Star dates back to World War I, when it represented loved ones that died in service.

The donated sun dial will be an armillary sphere that will display months, dates and the time. “I think one of the exciting aspects of this is that it could also be used as a learning tool for the elementary school students as well,” Lee said. The sun dial will be placed on the corner of where the old school once stood, close to the intersection. A walkway will lead up to the sun dial, which will be among many features on the site. A school bell and bird bath will be placed on the property, along with a gazebo and small garden.

The proposed memorial will pay tribute to those mothers and families who lost their loved ones in war. The temporary committee plans to determine an exact location and design of the memorial by early next year.

Lee said the demolition project came in under budget, by $330,000, from what was appropriated. The local share is expected to have a surplus of more than $160,000. The new sidewalks, which will connect to future elements of the site, will cost $38,000. Lee said the fourfoot decorative fence would be less than $15,000. Lee said some of the surplus will be used to pay for the sidewalks and fence. The sun dial, and installation, will have no cost to the town and is expected to be produced in 16 weeks.

Concerns raised over dog park location By Ashley Kus Citizen staff

Lee, with the council, had proposed Robert Street Extension as a location back in the summer.

A Plainville dog park has been in the works for nearly a year, and the committee chair says the location is still undecided.

At the Monday, Nov. 21 Town Council meeting, however, resident Arthur Screen said Lee and the council may want to reconsider.

“We want to get the conversation going,” said Dan Ciesielski, chair of the dog park committee.

The neighborhood was deemed unsafe after Tropical Storm Irene flooded the area in 2011. The first phase of FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation grant program was recently completed with 14 homes acquired and demolished.

Town Manager Robert Lee said previously that the process to get a dog park in town would take time. “This idea got off the ground less than a year ago,” he said. “It’s not moving as slow as people imagine.”

purchased. FEMA paid 75 percent of the demolition and closing costs. The town had previously appropriated $100,000 toward the project. Screen, a resident of the street, said FEMA may not approve of certain aspects of the dog park. “I think Norton Park would be a much better location,” he said. According to FEMA’s “Land Acquisition for Open Space” guide, the land on the street can be used for “parks for outdoor recreational activities, wetlands management, nature reserves, cultivation, grazing, camping (except where adequate warning

“It’s going to be very isolated down there,” Screen said. Phase two is now underway with five more properties acquired and four more to be

The new proposal to renovate Wheeler as new stayed in line with the budget’s debt service. Lee said the goal has always been to stay within $13.5 million for the three projects. Kathy Pugliese, chairwoman of the Town Council, reassured the public at a recent meeting that the Wheeler project would not go through if the reimbursement is suddenly not available.

In January, the council will decide if a referendum will be held. If the council agrees, Lee said, the referendum will most likely be in the spring.

“I anticipate plenty of opportunities for people to ask questions and understand how this fits into the financial plan of the town,” Lee

JR

The council did not respond to Ciesielski’s idea on Nov. 21.

Ciesielski also proposed the recently rejected location of Norton Park during the public comment portion of the Nov. 21 meeting.

The dog park committee will meet again this month.

said.

Lee said the council was initially looking at alterations for Wheeler. Over the summer, the town found out that the alterations would come at a greater cost since there would be less state reimbursement.

“People like the idea of Norton Park,” Ciesielski said. He recently sent a memo to the council to propose Norton Park once again. The new plan would use the south side entrance, instead of the north side, into the brown picnic area which would avoid contact with pedestrians. “We would like to reengage the discussion on this,” he said.

The location was previously struck down due to liability concerns. The same obstacle came up with Trumbull Park and Paderewski Park.
