Local bakery helps injured police officer The Plainville Citizen

Numerous fund-raisers have sprung up in an effort to help Brett Morgan, a New Britain police officer who was severely injured last month after being run over and dragged by a car reported stolen. In Plainville, Bolo Bakery was one such business to help the officer, who was released

B o l o ow n e r C r i s t i n a Abrantes said she knows a New Britain police officer through her boyfriend, and the officer asked if the shop would collect donations to benefit Morgan. “He asked me because we own a business in town if we would be able to help out,” Abrantes said.

The benef it was held Sunday, Feb. 23, from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Abrantes said total donations reached more than $2,000.

In a proactive attempt to nip outdated technology in the bud before it fails completely, Town Council unanimously approved a $100,000 appropriation Feb. 18 at its regular meeting to update the software used for the Plainville Police Department’s dispatch console. The motion went through 6-0. Councilor Patrick Kilby was absent from the meeting. A public hearing was held so residents could voice their concerns regarding the appropriation. Resident John Kisluk asked where the money was coming from, and said it looked like the town was making a transfer that would go against the rules of the Town Charter. “It can’t be an emergency,” Kisluk said of the need for the money. Police Chief Matthew Catania said the software that needs to be updated is about 13 years old and there are no longer any upgrades or replacements for it as the manufacturer is no longer making it. “It’s not a system where you wait until it’s failed and then replace it,” Catania said. “It’s our only method of communicating from headquarters to patrol units.” Council Chairwoman Kathy Pugliese said the money is coming out of the fund balance. “Certainly [the police department] provides our public safety and we firmly believe

this is an important aspect that needs to be taken care of and cannot wait any longer,” Pugliese said. Resident Art Screen said $100,000 sounded like a lot of money for a piece of equipment. Town Manager Robert E. Lee explained the entire system costs around $600,000. Catania said the dispatch console also communicates with fire and ambulance and is the primary method of communication. “You don’t wait for something like this to have a catastrophic failure,” Catania said. “You try to stay on top of it and try to maintain the integrity of the infrastructure.” In other business, Lee summarized the current state of the town’s snow removal budget. In a nutshell, expenditures have exceeded the budgeted amount for the season. Lee said the town usually prepares the budget for six snowstorms. This year, he said there have been about 10, not including the storm on Feb. 18. Lee said the town’s snow budget is comprised of three line items: overtime for plow drivers and buildings and grounds workers, subcontractors to assist the town with snow removal, and salt purchases to treat roads. Lee said the salt purchases do not impact the town budget because of a state grant program given to towns for road treatment purposes. The other items, he said, have expended

History with Hummel

From Wild Cat Mountain to Bald Mountain By Ruth Sharp Hummel Special to The Citizen

We’ve had quite a bit of snow, as I write this in February of 2014. My days of digging and shoveling are over, but “younger backs” dig me out after storms. A recent series of storms this January brought our hundreds of orange trucks ready to do battle with the white nemesis. Our town crew of trucks and drivers kept us moving right along. New chemicals

introduced of late years are still being evaluated. The old stand-by, salt, is in short supply because of the numerous large snow storms. Many years ago there were no school buses. Kids walked. Joseph Edman of the Ledge Road Edmans, continued a “V” shape apparatus made of planks and weighed down by big stones. Pulled by a horse, or horses, it plowed steep Ledge Road and a lucky few kiddo’s got a ride, at least part of the way

Opinion

Oscar’s best picture nominees — the envelope, please By Tanya Feke M.D. Special to The Citizen

At this stage in the game, the 86th annual Academy Awards have become a predictable acting race with Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey, and Jared Leto as locks for Best Actress, Actor, and Supporting Actor respectively. Even “12 Years a Slave” has all but secured Nyong’o as Best Supporting Actress after her SAG Award win — though the ever charming Jennifer Lawrence could possibly sneak in and swoop it up at the last minute. The real action is in the movies themselves. While movies whose directors have been nominated are seen as more likely to take the top prize (see asterisks), my picks break a bit from that tradition. 9) Nebraska* — The everyman story of Nebraska brings father and son together as they journey to Lincoln, Nebraska to claim a sweepstakes prize that doesn’t exist. Shot in black and white, the film captures what it means to appreciate the things you have when others try to wrestle them away from you. 8) Philomena — The true story of a woman trying to reunite with the son taken away from her 50 years ago, Philomena comes to life with the outstanding act-

ing of Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Tragic and heartfelt, the story uncovers a truth that Philomena may not want to hear. 7) The Wolf of Wall Street* — “Greed is good” has resurrected its mantra amid a sea of profanity in Martin Scorsese’s latest though not greatest film. Wolf follows the rise and fall of real life stockbroker Jordan Belfort as he plunders the pockets of the little man and lives a grandiose life without remorse. 6) Dallas Buyers Club — When Ron Woodroof is diagnosed with HIV in 1986, he crosses the border into Mexico and learns about alternative treatments that could extend his life and that of scores of others. The story follows his embittered battle with the FDA to do the right thing. Powerfully delivered and affecting. 5) Captain Phillips — The mounting tension is tangible when American cargo ship MV Maersk Alabama is hijacked by Somali pirates in the fact-based Phillips. Self control evolves into terror in the face of uncertain death.

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: TOM HANKS WAS ROBBED OF THAT BEST ACTOR NOMINATION! 4) 12 Years A Slave* — A free man is kidnapped and sold into slavery in Steve McQueen’s directorial about America’s shameful past. The star-studded drama stands as a disturbing reminder, if a bit heavy handed, of the cruelty that failed to see all men as equals. The acting ensemble portrays the range of morality with exquisite depth. 3) Her — Say what you will but Her is one of the year’s best films. Brilliantly stylized by writer and director Spike Jonze, Her tells the tale of a man who falls in love with his computer’s operating system, showing that emotions and not physicality are needed to sustain a meaningful connection. 2) Gravity* — Alfonso Cuaron directs this film about a medical engineer and an astronaut caught in a tragic accident that destroys their space shuttle. Survival is only possible when instinct sets in and the breadth of their humanity guides at least one of them to safety. Gravity is thematically and visually breathtaking with enough adrenaline to fuel a shuttle pod. 1) American Hustle* — The Inception of deceit – a con within a con within a con. How deep it goes you

quests to send bikes to other places, Plainville Senior Center among them. “We pretty much just donate them back to the community,” Chase said. Most of the time, when bikes come in, rusty chains, worn out bearings, brakes, and tires are some common components that need to be fixed. Other times, bikes are scraped for parts. Sometimes the class is able to fabricate one good bike from two trashed ones. Junior Andrew Quealy said it can get difficult when bikes come in that are in really rough shape. Nevertheless, he enjoys the work. “I just like tearing them d ow n a n d re b u i l d i n g ,” Quealy said. Junior Dave Vess said if they have all the parts, a

more than originally budgeted for. Overtime was originally budgeted for about $65,000 and currently sits at about $10,000 over. The subcontracting budget currently sits at about $60,000 over budget. It was originally budgeted for about $80,000. Despite the overages, Pugliese said she thinks the town is doing a good job handling and clearing the snow. “Everybody’s getting in and out as they need to and hopefully this will be our last storm,” she said. “One never knows, but our roads are easy and safe.” Lee also mentioned the importance of residents clearing out fire hydrants in front of homes. He said the responsibility is akin to that of clearing a sidewalk. “This is critical in the event there is a fire and the fire department needs to quickly access the water source,” Lee said. Lee said the town recommends digging a three-foot radius around the hydrants. He also said the town is looking into purchasing long wires that would attach to the top of the hydrants so they could be located in extreme depths of snow.

The majority of them run through her, and she was able to take advantage of that a lot this year.” Clemens finished the night with 28 points to lead all scorers. “This day in age, you can’t keep anything quiet, so everyone pretty much knew that every basket she scored that night got her two points closer,” said Gombotz. “It was nice that she got it in the first, because we didn’t have to

Blue Devils, Knights repeat at CCC competition By Matt Leidemer

Special to The Citizen

After five straight years of being crowned West Division champions, the Southington High cheerleaders took the next step and were named Central Connecticut Conference Grand Champions Saturday, Feb. 22 at the CCC Championship meet in Glastonbury. The Blue Knights won the West Division for the sixth consecutive year. The overall conference championship is a first for the program. “We wanted this so bad,” Southington coach Heather Allenback said. “We had a

really tough start this year, and we made some really tough coaching decisions, but we narrowed it down, took our best girls, and just did amazing.” In the South Division, Plainville repeated as champion. Berlin, which had its five-year South championship run ended by Plainville in 2013, placed second. “I was really confident with them, we had practice last night,” Plainville coach Courtney Perrotti said. “We had practices canceled because of the snow days, and even in practice I was really confident. They nailed their routine. It wasn’t perfect. I

was a little nervous with our competition, I wasn’t expecting first place, but the girls deserve it.” Perrotti was also impressed with her team’s attitude, even before the winners were announced. “As they came off the mat, the team was like, ‘Listen, even if we didn’t win, we did our best out there, we did awesome, and we had a great season.’ And that’s the attitude that I love, I couldn’t ask for anything better.” The other division winners were East Hartford in the North and Rocky Hill in the East. Several area cheerleaders

were named to the all-conference team. Tryouts were held at Cromwell High School, and the top 10 in each division were selected. Southington’s Kaycee Belanger, Rylee Gothberg and Monique Szabo were selected for the West Division team. In the South, Berlin’s Caitlyn DiCiccio and Victoria Giaccone made the cut, as did Plainville’s Isabella Donahue. Belanger, Donahue and Giaccone were all-conference selections in 2013 as well. It was the first selection for DiCiccio, Gothberg and Szabo. “She did great today,” Allenback said of Szabo, a freshman. “She’s amazing.”

fans something else to be excited about last week with a 57-50 victory over Fermi, the team’s third of the season. Sophomore Tim Dixon led all Blue Devils with 16 points, while junior Austin Butler added 10 more. Sophomore guard Mikal Salmon added eight points while junior Jayden Lococo and sophomore Matt Fiesta each contributed six. T h e w i n g u a ra n t e e d Plainville (3-15) its best season since 2010-11 (9-12). Boys swimming While the boys don’t plan on breaking any single-season winning percentage records in the near future, the team is hoping for a solid performance at the state meet. In the meantime, the team has continued to work on best times and scores, as apparent in their meet against Bristol Central/Bristol Eastern/St. Paul last week. “Bristol has one of the strongest teams; they’ve got one of the strongest teams in our conference. Overall, our team did swim better than they have been in the last couple of meets, and did show a lot of improvement, so I’m happy with that,” said Plainville coach Chris Zagorski. Some individual performances that stood out for the Blue Devils were that of sophomore diver Greg Sileo, who had his best scoring performance of the season. Sileo finished filling out his full diving repertoire in late January to start competing in meets, and has steadily improved. Senior teammate Justin Freitas had a season-best time in the 50 freestyle, a race he hopes to make some noise in during the postseason.

Bikes bike can be turned around in about a week. “If it’s pretty bad, it could take a week, or two,” Vess said. Chase said he has a decent amount of students who work on the bikes, and the teens usually will separate into groups of two or three to work on them. Seniors Ryan Upson and John Charneski said the process of assessing a bike involves checking brake lines, making sure chains are tight, going over the paint, and checking tire tubes. “We’re doing it for a cause,” Upson said. “We’re helping kids who don’t get bikes.” “I don’t have a bike because I choose to not have one,” Charneski said. “Others don’t because they can’t afford one.”

“The Art of Chinese Paper Cutting” will be demonstrated by ManLi Luo Hinze, a local artist and art teacher. The Monday, March 10 business meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. followed by the demonstration at 7 p.m. in the small conference room, Plainville Library. The public is welcome. Join the group for breakfast that morning at the Oasis on Pine Street, 9 a.m. Call (860) 589-3599 for more information.
