Days appear numbered for Chung ‘eyesore’ By Adam Stuhlman The Plainville Citizen

For years, Plainville residents have had issues with the blighted site at 311-349 New Britain Ave., commonly known as the Chung Property, currently owned by John Senese of Calco Construction. Town Manager Robert E. Lee feels the demolition can be completed soon. “Getting this eyesore removed could be within the next 60 days,” he said. It’s a long time coming. According to Lee, in 2005, Chung Family Realty Partnership LLC went into contract with Landmark Investment

Group to purchase the property so long as Chung paid off $131,000 of past due property taxes. However, Lee said that since Chung didn’t have the money, it offered a discount on the property to LIG, but was turned down. LIG then took Chung to court for breach of contract. Lee added that the demolition does not have to wait until litigation ends. At the heart of the issue for some residents isn’t just the Chung case, but the fact that Plainville doesn’t have a blight ordinance. “We have asked for more than five years to have a See Eyesore / Page 5

House of Heroes reached out to help some area military families June 4. Vietnam-era veteran John Dieli, of 20 Meriline Ave., and Cecelia DiFrancesco, of 22 Pershing Dr., who’s late husband was a military man, received needed repairs and upgrades to their homes that day. Victoria Dawson,

of New Britain, also was helped by House of Heroes. Dieli, discharged from the Army in 1963, applied for help through the House of Heroes website last October. Help arrived at his Plainville home last week. “They are doing tree trim, and putting a new roof on,” Dieli explained. “This is a relief.” Drafted in 1961, Dieli was not called upon to fight in

Vietnam, but felt for the guys that were. “I felt bad for the guys that had to serve. It was a terrible war,” Dieli said. “When guys came back from Vietnam, they were treated horribly and called names.” DiFrancesco has lived in her Plainville home for nearly 70 years, where she and her husband, Louis DiSee HOH / Page 2

Speaking of the young man’s parents, Mike and Shiela Flocco, May said “this destroyed their lives” but they “did their best.” “They inspired me,” May continued, “and their son is also one of a dozen veterans that have inspired me.” According to May, there are currently 30 Connecticut veterans on the House of Heroes waiting list. Typically, some 20 homes are handled each year.

Survey: Educators, kids happy with town schools By Adam Stuhlman

The Plainville Citizen

The Plainville Board of Education met Monday to discuss a myriad of topics, ranging from the results of surveys taken that showed overall support and happiness with education in town, to applauding the 2014 Teacher of the Year, to the application of a $75,000 Choice grant. – Speaking of the grant, Plainville Assistant Superintendent Maureen Brummett said it will “allow us to expand our

culinary classrooms. We are also going to create a STEM lab for robotics classes, robotics I and II. We will use this money to buy equipment and redesign the classrooms.” – According to Plainville Superintendent Jeffrey Kitching, Plainville Community Schools Food Services Director Jim Bondi has advocated for a 25 percent increase in lunch prices. “This shouldn’t be a problem because we haven’t had a rise in lunch prices in five years,” Kitching said, “and

asked her opinion by Pugliese. “Every Citizens Forum should be filmed.” Also at the June 2 meeting, a motion was passed by another 5-2 count that settles the discussion over the current mill rate. With revenue coming in from state reimbursement for education projects, there has been some argument between council members whether to offer a tax break for the next fiscal year. Not any more. The motion passed to have a flat mill rate of 31.38 with no increase for the next fiscal year. C h r i s to p h e r ’s m o t i o n to set the mill rate at 31.54 was supported by councilor Christopher Wazorko, but an opposing view was heard from Saunders. “We have an opportunity

mise; hopefully this will help satisfy the needs of citizens.” Pugliese added that if there was only one meeting a month, then the council would film that meeting. Vice Chairman Scott Saunders voiced a dissenting view, saying this was “not a First Amendment issue.” This comment did not sit well with resident John Kisluk. “This is not Russia where you get stifled,” Kisluk said. “We have this right.” Kisluk has taken the lead with a group of residents that signed a contract with Nutmeg TV to pay for filming the Citizens Forum. Councilor Quinn Christopher is all for airing the Citizens Forum portion of meetings. “You know how strongly I feel,” she said when

for a zero mill rate increase at no damage to the town … we have millions in unanticipated revenue,” Saunders said. From the Town Manager Report, Town Manager Robert E. Lee spoke about revenues that have exceeded $615,000, some of which he said is from education projects that didn’t cost as much as were budgeted for. He also said that 86.7 percent of the budget for fiscal year 2014 has been spent, with $6.9 million remaining. Lee said that overages in certain areas, such as police overtime, can “be covered by accounts and projects being over budgeted.” Lee also spoke at the meeting about concerns he had with the town’s health fund, saying that “over the past eight years we have been down by millions,” in terms of proper budgeting for health claims. Lee said that according to Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, the town should be prepared to spend approximately $1.44 million to $1.92 million every three to four months on claims. According to Lee, the town is “coming in under $480,000 a month from claims.”

And Landmark offered $2.2 million. The tax foreclosure sale wiped this all out.” The property was bought by 31 NB Plainville, LLC, which is owned by Senese.

All together, LIG is seeking $6 million to $7 million, with $4 million in “compensatory damages, $2 million in punitive damages, and hundreds of thousands in attorney’s fees,” according to Wisser.

Wings & Wheels takes off at Robertson Airport for third year By Robin Lee Michel Special to The Citizen

Jackson Landini pressed close to the dashboard of the small two-seater plane so he could look out the windshield to see his aunt. Brittany Helddon, of Middletown, had brought her 4-year-old grandson to Wings & Wheels on June 7 so that he could

Bill Kulle and Augie Gorreck flew their 1943 Stearman from Skylark Airport in East Windsor. The planes were used for training by the U.S. Army during World War II, Kulle said, and this particular aircraft was restored 30 years ago. With two cockpits, the men said they each would fly one way of their round trip that day. Other aviation exhibits on site that day included a helicopter, a small jet and numerous display tables with personnel providing information about aviation opportunities such as Dream Ride, Civil Air Patrol, Pilot Proficiency Program, Silver City Flying Club, Angel Flight, Skydive CT and others. Planes occasionally flew overhead as they took passengers for short flights to get a birds-eye view of the area. Meanwhile on the northern side of the airport automobiles of all models, years and makes streamed onto airport grounds for the car show. They all were alike in one way: each vehicle was beautifully restored and maintained, and proudly displayed. As soon as they parked, owners hopped out to open the hoods, post information, clean the engines and dust the trunks. The oldest vehicles were parked side by side: a 1915 See Wheels / Page 7

For example in the five-year period leading up to 2013 we had a 52 percent increase in the pounds of food distributed and a 62 percent increase in services,” Woerz said. “People don’t realize that we are much more than a food pantry. We also

distribute household items, clothing and provide energy assistance, crisis intervention and more for our residents of Plainville.” “It was a wonderful day and it was so fun seeing a lot of the people there from Plainville and surrounding towns. The planning committee did a great job,” Woerz said. It was a great way to raise awareness and share information about the pantry’s mission while offering visitors a fun day, she said.

Flag Day is June 14 Flag Day is June 14. Several Veterans organizations have scheduled ceremonies to properly retire unserviceable American Flags including Berlin American Legion Post 68, 154 Porters Pass. Our Nations Flag has seen many faces, but, here are a few things that may be useful: After declaring America’s independence in 1776, our new nation was still largely unsettled. A variety of flags were flown that were typically homemade and reflective of the region where they flew. Our new nation needed a uniform flag to assist our country continue its momentum and unify the people. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act: “Resolved: that the flag of the United States

be made of 13 stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be 13 stars, white with a blue field, representing a new constellation.” After Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the union, Congress passed the second Flag Act of 1794, which stated that by May 1795, the flag should have 15 stripes and 15 stars. This flag flew over Fort McHenry in 1814. The third Flag Act of 1818 reduced the number of stripes to its original 13 and ordered that a new star would be added for each new state. Again, there were no instructions on how the stars should be placed, so flag makers placed them in a variety of patterns (circleslines-one large star). In 1912,

by executive order, President William Taft declared that the stars should be in six horizontal rows and that a single point of each star should be pointed upward. On Jan 3, 1959, with the addition of Alaska, the 49th state, President Eisenhower ordered the stars to be set in seven rows of seven stars, staggered horizontally and vertically. Just eight mounts later when Hawaii joined the union, Eisenhower directed a new arrangement for the flag in which five horizontal rows of six stars would alternate with four staggered rows of five stars. This flag remains the one that flies today. Submitted by John W. Hackett, USAF, Ret. Post Commander, American Legion Post 68

The PHS Unified basketball team returned to the court this year, and will be back. | (Submitted)

Re-energized Unified program impresses Press Release The Unified basketball program was re-energized this year at Plainville High School, ending the season on a high note at a tournament held at New Britain High School. According to coach and Plainville High School faculty member Cindy Birdsall, participation in the Unified basketball program began in the 1990s in collaboration with what was then known as the “Best Buddies” program at the high school, which paired special needs students with role model peers at school. Matt Gingras was one of the players on the original Plainville High School Unified team, and returned this year to serve as an assistant coach to Birdsall. “Matt was a point guard on the original team and played with us for three years. He is an asset to our team and has been a phenomenal support all the way around,” Birdsall said. In addition, Gingras works in the school’s cafeteria, and serves as a manager to the PHS football, basketball and baseball teams. Over the years, numbers dwindled and the high school’s Unified team had not been active until this year, when Birdsall once again partnered with high school special education teacher Denise Feltz, and district school psychologist Jeri Lynn Turkowitz. The group recruited students with special needs along with role model students from the school’s Student Athlete Leadership Team, and the result was impressive. The students came together and bonded immediately throughout the season, which ran December through March. “At the twice-a-week practices the team really made significant strides and worked together so well – it was amazing to see the

friendships and sportsmanship from the group,” Birdsall said. “This year was really about getting our feet wet again with participating in the program, and it couldn’t have gone any better I can’t imagine what the future will bring.” The culmination of the season was playing in the New Britain tournament, held in March. “It was so impressive to watch the students with special needs play during the tournament games. The role model students had done such a great job teaching the skills during the practices and helped to be sure that the skills were incorporated into the game. They encouraged the students to use the skills while providing feedback and positive comments to keep them motivated. When a basket was made, everyone on the team was so excited. It was a great experience for the students with special needs, the role model students and the coaches. We look forward to participating next year,” Turkowitz said. At the end of the season, the team came together for a pizza party to celebrate. When asked about their participation in the program, the high school students who volunteered to assist all agreed that it was a very positive experience. “It was a really great experience to see all the athletes working together – I will definitely participate once again next year,” commented sophomore Myranda LaPira. “I enjoyed it so much. It was nice to see how happy the players were, especially when they got their medals at the tournament. That was awesome,” noted sophomore Joey Chacho. Junior Sarah Abdelsame added, “I want to be a special education teacher and really enjoyed interacting with the

Danielle Angelillo and Andrew Rottier were selected by Plainville High School coaches as PHS’s Athletes of the Year. The multi-sport athletes were lauded for, not only their skills, but for their leadership both on and off the field. | (Submitted)

Is Legion baseball striking out? By Jim Bransfield

It’s too convoluted for me, and I think I get it. One of the reasons the state Legion allows so many teams in is based on an assumption that unless teams have something to play for, kids will lose interest and teams will fold before the season ends, presenting the state with the headache of dealing with forfeits. Methinks that assumption is shaky at best because it underestimates kids. Almost always, the teams that have forfeited games -- and they are very few in See Legion / Page 13
