Town officials meet with Boukus, voice concerns By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

State Rep. Elizabeth “Betty” Boukus paid a visit to Town Council at a special meeting March 3 to update councilors on what’s happening at the State Capitol. Boukus noted how “crammed” the legislature has been because of the weather.

Committees have been unable to meet and, as a result, legislators have had much busier days. “This weather has played havoc on any committee that has been set up,” Boukus said. Co u n c i l C h a i r K at hy Pugliese voiced some of her concerns to Boukus, and also highlighted some key points she read in an email

Sixth-graders train to be allies against bullying

sent to town officials by State Comptroller Kevin Lembo that mapped out the current condition of the state. One of the positive notes, Pugliese said, was the state being on track for a surplus, rather than a deficit. But a large concern of hers centered around high tuition costs in the Connecticut State University system. Public colleges, Pugliese said, were, at

one point, an affordable option for students, but now bring a hammer of heavy tuition costs that can make paying for an education difficult. She added that as student debt increases, the Mortgage Bankers Association said it will affect the real estate market as students who graduate college won’t be able to buy homes because of large

amounts of debt. “It’s going to affect the economy,” Pugliese said. “It’s going to bring out stressful culminations in that.” Resident John Kisluk said he thinks the high salaries that college professors receive is a big reason tuitions are as high as they are. See Boukus / Page 10

An alternative to the usual chain restaurant

SINGLES DANCE Saturday, March 15

8:00 PM - 12:30 AM

An alternative to the usual chain restaurant, The Stadium has just opened on Route 10, offering a taste of something different, while keeping true to the staples generally associated with a sports bar and grill. Carlo Zovich, owner of the building, formerly known as Tuscany Steak & Seafood, decided to re-brand the location after business fell off. “We just noticed that due to the economy, we were better off ” making a change, Zovich said. He also brought in a new chef, Mike Leonard, to run the kitchen. Sauces and dressings are made in-house, and meat is prepared on site. “No matter what town you go in, you’ve got the same handful of chain restaurants,” Leonard said. “No matter what state you’re in, they all look the same. There’s no originality anymore. Everything’s corporate.” The Stadium’s unique offerings include game meats such as venison and bison, which are always on the menu. Additionally, the restaurant will have game specials like wild board, elk, rabbit, and alligator. Also, patrons can try their luck eating a 32-ounce burger. Finish it, and it’s on the house. “It’s going to be something different,” Zovich said.

Just the same, The Stadium offers up the classics: burger and fries, wings, nachos, pasta, and other popular foods for families to munch on while watching the game. “It’s really just something everyone likes,” Leonard said of The Stadium’s atmosphere. “A lot of people love sports.” Many of the decorations are Leonard’s personal touches, including the Celtics Corner, which is garnered in Boston Celtics memorabilia. The bar has a pool table and dart boards. Leonard has been a chef for some 10 years, with previous experience working at Plan B Burger. The chef is strongly against genetically modified organisms and eats solely organic foods. He follows that same principle with the food he cooks at The Stadium; all vegetables and meats are brought in by Connecticut farmers, daily. L e o n a rd a n d Z ov i c h , both from Berlin, met when Leonard’s fiancé was working as a DJ one night at the former Tuscany. Leonard said he looked at the menu and gave Zovich his critique. “I came in, saw his menu, and kind of ripped it apart,” Leonard said. The message resonated with Zovich, who later offered Leonard The Stadium chef job. “We figured we’d bring him on since he knows what

Locals, for the most part, stayed away. “People saw ‘steak and seafood’ and thought it was expensive,” Zovich said. At The Stadium’s grand opening March 1, Zovich and Leonard said the place was rocking. The parking lot was packed to overflow. “ We g o t s l a m m e d ,” Leonard said. “It was a good night.”

explaining the group totals about 80 students. The sixth-graders’ workshops focus a lot on bully identification and defining what bullying is. Laudadio said there are two ways a student can join the Ally Group: Being selected in fifth grade, or by filling out an application after attending a “Step Up” assembly for all sixth-graders. Students interested in becoming an ally after the assembly can get more information. Criteria must be met, including grade requirements, behavior, and discipline standards. If students don’t meet the criteria, support is provided. “You have to come to the group with not just an in-

terest, but a skill set ready,” Laudadio said. The group watched a video March 5 about a student who was being harassed by peers via text messages and online. The harassment began when the student participated in class and was made fun of for it. The bullying started as name-calling, but escalated to the youngster receiving death threats. Derek Hall said when he was in school, kids could be called a “know-it-all” or a “teacher’s pet.” “As allies, we have to be able to understand why [bullies] would behave this way so we might be able to change it,” Hall said. Allie Chambrello, a student in the workshop, said she knew what bullying was before, but now has a bet-

ter understanding of it. She also understands why it’s important to be an ally. “I learned that even though it might be scary, you have to stand up, because it might get worse and won’t stop,” Chambrello said. “You don’t know what other people have been through,” said Nicole Cal, another student. Chambrello, Evangeli Collado and Cal were all selected for the Ally Group in fifth-grade. Collado said the workshop has helped her a lot and Cal said she would definitely recognize cyber-bullying if she saw it. “Before, I never knew what cyber-bullying was,” Collado said. At one point, Hall had students participate in an activity to gauge what kind of behavior kids are seeing

at MSP. Four sections were labeled around the room: strongly agree, agree, disagree, and strongly disagree. Hall asked students if they see bullying behavior at MSP. Most students stood in

the “disagree” section, and the rest stood by “agree.” Hall said it’s common to feel guilt when being a bystander. “Being an ally makes those feelings go away,” he said.

PLAINVILLE — Calvin L. Lyon, 97, retired Captain of the First Company G o v e r n o r ’s Horse Guard, passed away at home, s u r ro u n d e d by his family on Monday, March 3, 2014. He is now reunited with his beloved wife, Marjorie, who predeceased him in 2006. Born in New Britain, Mr. Lyon was the last surviving of six children to the late Harry and Delia (White) Lyon. He and Marjorie settled in Plainville, where they raised their son and shared 66 years of marriage. They were longtime members of the Congregational Church and Plainville Senior Center, and had a love for travelling, taking several cross country trips. He began his employment at Stanley Works in 1936, retiring as an electrician after 43 years. He raised and showed numerous Irish Setters, having been an active member of the Hartford Obedience Training Club for 67 years, where he was an active long term board member and past president. Having an affinity for motorcycle riding, Calvin belonged to the Meriden Motorcycle Club in the 1940’s, riding his Indian alongside Marjorie. He went on to join Troop A of the Connecticut State Guard’s Military Police Motorcycle Unit, followed by his 48 years of service with the First Governor’s Horse Guard, as First Lieutenant Adjutant, retiring as Captain in 1983. Mr. Lyon was

a Mason for more than 50 years, initially with the Harmony Lodge 20 where he served as Secretary for 15 years, and was the first and only Honorary Past Master of the Frederick Franklin Lodge 14 where he has been a member since 1980. Calvin fulfilled his life with service to others and was recently honored by the American Red Cross as the oldest donor in the state. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, leaving many cherished memories. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, John and Pamela Lyon with whom he made his home for the past seven years; his twin granddaughters, Dawn and Denise Lyon; and several nieces and nephews. His family extends their appreciation to his caretakers, Diane Bradshaw, Glen Spino, and Marcus Mack for the extraordinary care shown to Calvin over the past year, and to his dear friends and lodge brothers who supported him when he needed it most. A celebration of Calvin’s life was held on Friday, March 7, at 10 a.m. at Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St, Plainville, with the Rev. Dr. Claire Bamberg officiating. Committal services were followed at West Cemetery, Bristol.

Opinion The wearin’ o’ the green The feast of St. Patrick is held around the globe every year on March 17. It is a celebration of the man credited with converting much of the Irish population from paganism to Christianity in the fifth century. According to Catholic. org, St. Patrick was born in the year 387 A.D. in Scotland to an aristocratic Roman family. His parents were Calpurnius and Conchessa, who were living in Britain and in charge of the colonies. When St. Patrick was 14 his parents’ estate was raided and he was brought to Ireland as a slave to tend herds of goats and sheep. This is when he learned the local language and culture. Although History.org states that there is no evidence that his family was religious, St. Patrick turned to God and prayer during these years of imprisonment. When St. Patrick was 20, he escaped captivity and fled to the coast of Ireland where he was aided to Britain by sailors. In Britain, he reunited with his family and studied to become a priest. After being ordained, he was sent back to Ireland. As stated at Catholic.org, St. Patrick and his disciples preached throughout Ireland and converted thou-

sands. “Kings, their families, and entire kingdoms converted to Christianity when hearing Patrick’s message.” St. Patrick is credited with blending traditional Irish rituals into the Christian faith instead of forcing converts to abandon their customs. He introduced the use of bonfires to celebrate Easter, and added the sunburst to the Celtic cross. The shamrock became a symbol of the Holy Trinity at this time. There are many tales that have survived the centuries regarding St. Patrick. Some stories have been unsubstantiated, such as the one about St. Patrick banishing snakes from the land. According to Phillip Freeman, classics professor

at Luther College in Iowa, snakes have never inhabited Ireland. “The island is surrounded by very cold waters and snakes cannot migrate through these waters from other lands,” Freeman said. It is a time-honored tradition for people of Irish decent (and even those who are not Irish) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage, and soda bread, and, maybe, having a drink or two. St. Patrick’s Day often also includes 5K road races, and green beer and green bagels. Also, school kids have been known to create “leprechaun traps” in the hopes of capturing one of those little guys. -- Lauren Villecco

It was Board Appreciation Night at the Board of Education’s regular meeting Monday, and students were on hand to demonstrate their thanks for the work done by the board. First, the fourth grade band from Toffolon Elementary School played a few songs. Band director Michael Boncimino explained this is the first year there is a fourth grade band at the school. Students played together as a group, and a few soloists got a chance to shine in the spotlight. Next, some more students from the elementary schools presented board members with hand-drawn portraits of themselves. Each student was directed to stand on stage in front of the board member they drew. When students were finished showing their appreciation, the three elementary school principals gathered to give their State of the Elementary Schools presentation. Linden Street School P rincipal Paula Eshoo, Toffolon Principal Lynn Logoyke, and Wheeler Principal Andrew Batchelder put together a slideshow with a tugboat theme, which alluded to Plainville High School Principal Steven LePage’s reference in his State of the High School presenta-

tion that PHS is the flagship of the Plainville school district, while the elementary schools are the tugboats. “We may be elementary schools,” Eshoo said, “but we are small, but mighty.” The principals made sure to drive that point home by having several pictures of tugboats towing very large ships. Logoyke pointed out data trends in reading and math that show Plainville students mostly above, but if not, at least equal to the achievement mark of the rest of the state. “We are going right where we should be,” Logoyke said. Eshoo explained that all the schools have initiatives to foster a positive atmosphere and learning environment that involve rewarding students for good behavior. She said students receive tickets every time they do something good, which can be exchanged for an activity or another fun endeavor. “At each of our schools, we try to focus on the positive,” Eshoo said. Logoyke said students had ample opportunities to go out and enjoy the snow this year at school. She said there is a small hill on the side of the school that the kids could go out and play on. “You couldn’t imagine the amount of fun kids had on that tiny little hill,” Logoyke said.

and grow. “We just do these things in unique ways, but we all do From Page 8 them very well in the three school after the retirement schools,” Batchelder said. At Toffolon, Logoyke also of Catherine Frayler, said students are afforded many dif- explained the implementation ferent opportunities to learn of the enVision math program.

Last year was the first year of the program, and she said the idea was simply to get teachers to learn how to use it. This year, she said teachers were challenged to use the program to its full capacity in order to cater to students of all learn-

ing levels. “This year we took a look at how we could use this program how it was designed to be used; to meet the needs of every student,” Logoyke said. Eshoo explained that at Linden, students get to partic-

ipate in a program called Book Buddies, where students from all grades mingle and read to each other. “We do it for fluency, competence, and just enjoying See BOE / Page 11

Pugliese said the current situation leaves everyone “caught between a rock and a hard place” because those are the jobs that are needed, but it’s too expensive to get the education. Overall, she said Connecticut still has a suffering job market with an unemployment rate of 7.4 percent, compared to the national average of 6.6. She added the national rate of job growth is double that of Connecticut’s. “All of those things going on now are a bit of a concern,” Pugliese said. “We are not moving forward.” Boukus also talked about the proposed minimum wage increase. Town Manager Robert E. Lee said one of the main points in favor of raising the wage is for a person to make a living wage to support a family. However, he said, there are many high school students with part-time jobs that don’t necessarily face that responsibility. He mentioned the idea of a two-tier system and wondered if it would be applicable to raise the wage for those who need it and keep it the same for those who don’t. “It’s not going to affect the billionaires,” Lee said of the wage increase. “It’s going to affect the locals.” Lee also voiced his concerns over mandates given to the town by the legislature that require towns to follow new policies and procedures, without providing the funding. “It’s one thing for the legislature to say we think it’s a good public policy to do this,” Lee said, “but it’s also very easy to make that decision when somebody else is paying the bill.”

The Plainville Fire Department would like to remind residents and business owners to keep fire hydrants free from obstruction of snow during the winter season. As you shovel or push snow off your driveways and sidewalks, take time to clear a three-foot circle around the fire hydrant to keep it accessible. We appreciate your help in keeping our community safe.

Senators highlight climate change HARTFORD (AP) — U.S. senators from Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island are among 28 lawmakers preparing to hold the Senate floor all night long to urge congressional action on climate change. The 28 lawmakers are members of the Senate Climate Action Task Force, a group formed to highlight climate change. Most members were expected to take the Senate floor beginning Monday evening until about 9 a.m. Tuesday. Rhode Island U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse says the action is intended to send a message that “it’s time for Congress to wake up and get serious” with addressing climate change. Whitehouse says the cost of Congress’ inaction on climate is too high for communities and the economy. Other members of the task force include Massachusetts U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey, and Connecticut U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy.

books together,” Eshoo said. In new business, the board unanimously approved four new courses at PHS and Middle School of Plainville summer courses. The courses at the high school will be: communications, robotics, senior seminar, and theatrical design. “These are much needed improvements and expansions of our curriculum and totally broaden the whole base of our students being able to learn,” said board member Foster White. Board member Becky Tyrell said the new additions are “wonderful, fantastic” proposals at a minimal cost. “A lot of work went into them and a lot of effort on the part of the staff,” Tyrell said. “And all of them, I think, are going to reap a lot of benefits.”

Sports PHS cheerleaders place second in Class M By Matt Leidemer Special to The Citizen

The 2014 CIAC cheerleading season wrapped up this past weekend at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven, and several local squads ended the year on a high note. Plainville followed up its second straight CCC South Division championship with a second-place finish Saturday morning, tying the best result in school history. The Blue Devils were Class M runners-up in 1992 and Class S runners-up in 2000. “They did really well,” Plainville coach Courtney Perrotti said. “I was really impressed with them. I was hoping for it. In the (recent) past we’ve never placed. I didn’t know really what to expect, I didn’t see all the teams. But that was the best I’ve seen them do.” St. Joseph’s-Trumbull won Class M, improving on last year’s runner-up performance. Northeast powerhouse and defending Class M champion Wolcott settled for bronze. The Berlin Redcoats placed third

Martino said Berlin’s second-place finish in the South Division at the CCC conference meet helped galvanize the team. “Every time they don’t reach a goal they want,” she said of her team, “they work harder and harder. Not winning their league made them work harder to achieve their goal of top three today.” The Southington Blue Knights placed fifth in a very competitive Class LL division. It was the Knights’ first time back in an all-girl division in three years. In 2012 and 2013, Southington competed in the co-ed division. Two-time defending co-ed champion Shelton was bested by Danbury this time around. It marked the Hatters’ first championship since The PHS cheerleaders had much to smile about Saturday at the Floyd 2011.

Although the Blue Knights missed “I am very excited,” first-year Berlin out on a chance to return to regionat the Class L championship Friday night.

The Blue Devils swim team has slowly but surely improved throughout the regular season, finishing against conference foes in the CCC conference championship meet Saturday. The team placed fifth with 121 points, finishing ahead of Bulkeley. While PHS coach Chris Zagorski and his team were hoping for at least a fourth place finish, he was impressed with the continued improvement of his guys. “I think we had a pretty good meet overall. We had a lot of kids get really good times and I think we’re in a good position going into the state qualifying meet Saturday,” Zagorski said. While the team didn’t have any new individuals qualify for the state meet at the conference competition, the team’s two current qualifiers – senior Justin Freitas and junior Trevor Roy –both improved upon their times for their events, t h e 1 , 5 0 0 f re e s tyl e and 100 breaststroke, respectively. “I also had a bunch of my swimmers better their chances of making states by getting better times at the meet,” Zagorski pointed out. Freshman Lorenzo Samperi finished fifth in the 200 freestyle,

Press Release HARTFORD – Throughout the season of Lent, every Catholic church in the Archdiocese of Hartford will be open every Monday from 6 to 7 p.m. for priests to hear Confessions in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Lent began March 5 and ends Thursday, April 17. This is the second year that the Archdiocese, comprised of 213 churches in Hartford, Litchfield and New Haven Counties, will sponsor the Lenten Confessional campaign, as a way for Roman Catholics to prepare for Easter. Lent is the 40-day liturgical season of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving (acts of charity), leading up to Easter Sunday. The goal of the campaign is to make it easy for people to stop by any church on their way home from work, school, shopping or running errands. Assistant Chancellor Father

Reconciliation a gift. “In Confession, it is Christ himself who absolves us from sin through the ministry of His priests. The gift of forgiveness, the gift of being able to start with a clean slate after doing wrong or failing in some way that weighs on your conscience is a blessing,” said the Archbishop. “Let the light of Divine Mercy shine on you this Lenten season.” In order to alleviate any anxiety that people may have about going to Confession, the Archdiocese has designed a website: Light4you.info to help people prepare for the Sacrament. It addresses frequently asked questions, and features testimonials from people who share their experiences about receiving the Sacrament. The Confessions on Monday evenings will be in addition to the regular Confession schedules that churches in the Archdiocese of Hartford follow during the year.

Jeffrey V. Romans, chairperson of the Archdiocesan Lenten Committee, said that last year the campaign was very effective because it invited everyone – no matter how long it had been since their last Confession -- to seek the grace and repentance and God’s mercy for their sins. “Some who had been away from the Sacrament for decades told me that they felt revitalized afterwards,” said Romans. Romans said that it’s important for people to know that the primary role of a priest is not to judge but to encourage the penitent, just as Christ did. We are all sinners, and it’s never too late to confess and do penance for one’s sins. The campaign will be publicized on billboards across Connecticut highways and on radio in an effort to reach people who may not attend church regularly, or have been away from the Sacrament.

CONNECTICUT LEGAL NOTICE Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Docket No. CP14-96-000 Notice is hereby given that Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC (“Algonquin”), on February 28, 2014, filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) an application, pursuant to Section 7 of the Natural Gas Act, for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (“Application”) to construct, own, operate and maintain proposed facilities necessary to provide up to 342,000 dekatherms per day (“Dth/d”) of firm transportation service to meet immediate and future supply and load growth requirements for Yankee Gas Services Company, NSTAR Gas Company, Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, The Southern Connecticut Gas Company, The Narragansett Electric Company d/b/a National Grid, Colonial Gas Company d/b/a National Grid, Boston Gas Company d/b/a National Grid, Bay State Gas Company d/b/a Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, Inc., Norwich Public Utilities, and Middleborough Gas and Electric. The project is referred to as the Algonquin Incremental Market Project (the “Project”) and will create additional capacity from the Ramapo, New York receipt point on Algonquin’s system to various Algonquin city gate delivery points in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts by expanding its existing pipeline and compressor station facilities within New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Specifically, Algonquin proposes project facilities that will consist of the following activities in those states: the construction of approximately 37.6 miles of take-up & relay, loop and lateral pipeline facilities; modifications to five existing compressor stations resulting in the addition of 81,620 horsepower of compression; modifications to 24 existing metering and regulating (“M&R”) stations; construction of three new M&R stations, and the removal of one existing M&R station. These proposed Project facilities will provide additional access to growing supply areas, which should provide the Northeast markets with additional economic supplies of natural gas. Algonquin will need to acquire permanent and temporary property interests from a limited number of landowners for the proposed facilities. The Project is expected to have minimal impacts on landowners, communities and the environment. Notice of the Application will be mailed to affected landowners, and local, state and federal governments and agencies involved in the Project. An electronic copy of the Application and supporting documents are on-file in the public libraries and/or local offices in communities impacted by the aforementioned facilities. For further information on becoming an intervenor in the FERC proceeding and/or to obtain FERC’s pamphlet entitled “An Interstate Natural Gas Pipeline on My Land? What Do I Need to Know?”, visit the FERC website (www.ferc.gov) or phone FERC’s Office of External Affairs at (866) 208-3372. Algonquin is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Spectra Energy Partners, LP. Algonquin owns and operates an interstate natural gas pipeline system extending from points near Lambertville and Hanover, New Jersey, through the states of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts to points near Boston, Massachusetts. For more information, please contact: Edward C. Harney Right of Way Project Manager Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC 70 East Johnson Avenue Cheshire, CT 06410 866-873-2579 (toll free)
