PHS teacher wins sweepstakes, lounge makeover By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

It was an ordinary faculty meeting at Plainville High School on Tuesday, Nov. 19, but it became a bit more when representatives from California Casualty came in the room and announced that English teacher Debbie Seibert had won a sweepstakes for the school. Seibert entered the school in the drawing over the summer for $7,500 to make over the faculty lounge used by Seibert and her peers on the second floor of PHS. A professional interior designer has also been contracted through the sweepstakes

to take input from faculty members and bring their ideas and suggestions to life. “I’m surprised,” Seibert said. “I don’t win things, so this is really cool.” California Casualty is an insurance company that works with individuals in specific fields like education, nursing, law enforcement, and firefighting. Seibert said earlier, she and her peers were joking about things they had on their wish list if they won. After the meeting, department faculty members and CC representatives went to the room to begin talking business and giving Marc

Walk off that turkey with a family ramble To prepare for a safe and enjoyable time: 1. Be ready to begin the Ramble at the scheduled start time; 2. Bring water, a snack, any allergy or other prescribed medications you may need, and your excitement; 3. Leave pets at home or other safe place (unless otherwise noted in the ramble description); 4. Wear sturdy shoes; and 5. Kids, please remember to bring your parents or caregivers. This outing is sponsored by the WalkCT program (of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association). Pre-registration is not necessary. Heavy rain cancels because there is a brook to cross, which could be difficult when in flood. There are no restrooms at the park. Phone Susan Barlow, American Red Cross First Aid/CPR-trained WalkCT Family Guide, at (860) 643-9776 with any questions. Visit for more details. Connecticut Forest and Park Association, founded in 1895, is a nonprofit organization serving Connecticut to protect forests, parks, walking trails, and open spaces for future generations. CFPA maintains the 825-mile BlueBlazed Hiking Trail System, trains educators to utilize forests as a teaching tool, and is creating healthier communities through its WalkCT initiative.

Double stabbing at Taco Bell By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

Two men are in stable condition after being stabbed at the Taco Bell located on New Britain Avenue at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21. Plainville police are investigating the incident and believe the assailants, described as two black males, got away in a red new model Ford Taurus. A third black male is believed to have driven the getaway vehicle. The altercation is said to have begun at another nearby location with a argument and does not appear as though the two parties involved knew each other. The two males injured were brought to Hartford Hospital with serious injuries after walking to a nearby

Yvonne Masse

Frank T. Wheeler Elementary School students Aryanna Delgado and John Sturtevant earned a chance to perform on the piano as part of the school’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program.


PLAINVILLE— Yvonne (Violette) Masse, 84, of Plainville, passed away surrounded by her family, on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, at Apple Rehab. She is now reunited with her beloved husband, Herman, who predeceased her. Born in Van Buren, Maine on Dec. 1, 1928, Yvonne was one of 17 children to the late Severin and Caroline (Cyr) Violette. Raised in the same town, she and Herman’s family shared a long history together, and moved to Connecticut following their marriage where they raised their four children. Yvonne worked for Connecticut Spring for a brief time, before handling the bookkeeping for her husband’s company, H & N Construction. A longtime member of Our Lady of Mercy Church, Yvonne made a hobby of making various types of crafts, and had a love for all flowers, taking great pleasure in working in her yard and her gardens. Above all, she was a devoted mother and beloved grandmother, and will be greatly missed by her adored family, leaving many cherished memories. She is survived by her sons, Melvin and his wife, Anne-Marie, James and his wife, Joyce, and Gary Masse; her grandchildren, Dwayne, Heather, Robin, Michael, and Scott; and seven great-grandchildren. She also leaves her brother and sisters, Theresa Masse, Annie Fongemie, Stella Duplessis and Percy Violette; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son, Daniel; and her siblings, Corinne Martin, Gladis Dionne, Jeanne Levesque, Isabelle Beaupre, Gertrude Cote, Jeanette, George, Emil , Marc, Joseph, Abel and Richard Violette. Family and friends gathered on Friday, Nov. 22, at Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St, Plainville. A Mass of Christian burial was held on Saturday, Nov.. 23, at Our Lady of Mercy Church, 94 Broad St, Plainville. Committal services followed the Mass at St. Joseph Cemetery. Yvonne may be remembered with contributions to the American Diabetes Association, 300 Research Parkway, Meriden, CT 06450. For online expressions of sympathy, please visit Yvonne’s tribute page at

Kennedy’s 1963 Thanksgiving message John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated Nov. 22, 1963, an event that occurred 50 years ago this month. By the time this national tragedy unfolded, Kennedy had already penned his Thanksgiving Day address. The proclamation was dated Nov. 4, 1963 and released to public domain Nov. 5, 1963, by Secretary of State Dean Rusk. The new president, Lydon Johnson, asked that the late president’s address be made widely available to the public, urging churches, and others conducting public ceremonies, to use Kennedy’s words when commemorating Thanksgiving Day. Here is an excerpts from Johnson’s Thanksgiving Day remarks, followed by the complete text of President Kennedy’s holiday message. From President Johnson: To n i g h t , on this Thanksgiving, I come before you to ask your help, to ask your strength, to ask your prayers that God may guard this Republic and guide my every labor. All of us have lived through seven days that none of us will ever forget. We are not given the divine wisdom to answer why this has been, but we are given the human duty of determining what is to be, what is to be for America, for the world, for the cause we lead, for all the hopes that live

Travel with baby made easier to sleep in their car seats, both at the airport and on the plane. Car seats can be gate checked if your child is lap baby. Wear your infant. Using a child carrier, your hands will be free and your child will be snug. On the plane, some flight crews don’t allow babies to be in the carrier for takeoff and landing, but some do. Be prepared for either scenario. Bring a stroller that folds up easily. Make sure any layovers are long enough to retrieve the stroller and still make it to your next gate. Pre-board. Passengers traveling with little ones are given the opportunity to pre-board. Getting your baby settled before takeoff can be great. If you are on a flight that doesn’t have assigned seats, pre-boarding makes for a great seat selection. Sit in the back, unless you have a tight connecSee Travel / Page 17

got the shirt months ago because his Dad and Tom are friends. Many benefit races and other charity events prom-

of the usual workaday white or blue shirts, it is news. As a volunteer for a local charity, See T-shirt / Page 17

Stores in malls and tourist traps everywhere stock huge varieties of T-shirts. All with logos from sweet words to obscene or profane. Do you tell on yourClementsen self by the logo on your T-shirt? What does the logo say about you? Are you really “Number 1 Dad”? Do you drink “Le Brun beer”? Or smoke “el Fumero cigarettes”? Are you “SOCCER MOM”? My husband used to say he had no reason to wear a T-shirt with the name of a business on it. He reasoned, why give them free advertising? A pastor I know used to chide the young people in his congregation about sayings on their t-shirts. Did the logos support some precept they’d

learned in Sunday School? Would they want some future employer to see it? I have mixed feelings about logos on t-shirts. Once when I was in Helsinki, I saw a young man wearing at-shirt with “Meridan, CT” printed on it. I asked him if he got the shirt in Meriden. He said no, that his mother brought it home when she had visited America the summer before. I wish the maker had spelled the name of our twelfth largest city correctly. A few weeks ago as I stood in line at the bank, I noticed the man ahead of me was wearing a T-shirt with the name of a busy tree surgeon emblazoned on the back. I thought the wearer might be an employee. I asked him how my friend Tom was doing since his accident. He seemed puzzled by the question. I explained that I had seen Tom the week previous with a sling on his arm, broken from a fall from a tree. The shirt owner said he only *Financing subject to credit approval.

living unknown in previous history. We give our humble thanks for this. Yet, as our power has grown, so has our peril. Today we give our thanks, most of all, for the ideals of honor and faith we inherit from our forefathers — for the decency of purpose, steadfastness of resolve and strength of will, for the courage and the humility, which they possessed and which we must seek every day to emulate. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them. Let us therefore proclaim our gratitude to Providence for manifold blessings — let us be humbly thankful for inherited ideals — and let us resolve to share those blessings and those ideals with our fellow human beings throughout the world. Now, Therefore, I, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America, in consonance with the joint

resolution of the Congress approved December 26, 1941, 55 Stat. 862 (5 U.S.C. 87b), designating the fourth Thursday of November in each year as Thanksgiving Day, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 28, 1963, as a day of national thanksgiving. On that day let us gather in sanctuaries dedicated to worship and in homes blessed by family affection to express our gratitude for the glorious gifts of God; and let us earnestly and humbly pray that He will continue to guide and sustain us in the great unfinished tasks of achieving peace, justice, and understanding among all men and nations and of ending misery and suffering wherever they exist. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed. DONE at the City of Washington this fourth day of November, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-eighth.

I have had occasion to hand out t-shirts; they came only in size XL. Some tiny recipients said they would use the humongous garments to sleep in, in place of pajamas. When my brother-in-law Harry was about to celebrate his 90th birthday, I searched in vain for a T-shirt with “Waterbury, CT” on it. I wanted to bring a gift from his birthplace to him in the Norwegian city where he lived. One day I was telling a new neighbor about my dilemma. I did not know what his occupation was. Owner of a print shop, he offered to print a “Born in Waterbury, CT” shirt and added the appropriate date as well. It was a hit with the birthday honoree. My own wardrobe has had few “message” T-shirts. One now proclaims “Recorder Society of Connecticut”. I’ve had it a long time.

tion. The back of the plane is less crowded, close to bathrooms, and the loud white noise helps babies sleep. The back often provides convenient access to flight attendants and the galley. Don’t put your carry-on in the overhead compartment. Put it under the seat, where you can reach it. I recommend a backpack instead of a diaper bag. With a backpack, you have both hands free, and if you are wearing your baby, the backpack balances the weight. No bag smacking your leg or sliding down your shoulder. Pack the right stuff. Bring fewer toys than you think you’ll need, and more diapers, wipes, food or formula, and spare clothes. Pacifiers, bottles or sippy cups, comfort items, and a book or two should be included, too. These toys and books are even more interesting to kiddos if they are new. Bring a small first aid kid, and some children’s pain reliever in case of ear pain. Do not forget extra clothes for yourself. Keep baby eating or drinking during takeoff and land-

Amazing surgeons –

StatePoint – Keeping your property maintained during and after a snowfall is crucial. But handle snow and ice safely, as some of the risk involved comes from the removal process itself – manually shoveling after a heavy snowfall can be dangerously strenuous. Opting for a snowblower can help you avoid risk, as well as get the job done faster.

snowfall, consider salting before the first flake falls. • Don’t wait: Keep up with the snowfall. Most of the time, it’s easier and faster to clear six inches of snow twice than 12 inches of snow once. • Use the Right Gear: Not all snowblowers are the same, so purchase a machine that’s ideal for your property. Factors such as the type of surface and size of the space you’re clearing, as well as how much and what type of snow you’re expecting all should be considered. For a free online tool that can help you identify the right snowblower for you, visit www. • Make it Painless: Don’t fight the wind. Whenever possible, point a snow blower’s chute downwind so that the wind helps you blow the snow. It’s usually easier to move up and down the length

of a driveway, not perpendicular. In strong crosswinds, start on the upwind side and then work downwind. • Think ahead: Throw snow as far into your yard as possible. Throwing snow only to the edge of a driveway or walkway will lead to high snow banks and make it more difficult to remove snow during the next snowstorm. • Be safe: Read and understand your operator’s manual before getting started. As you would with a lawn mower, inspect the area first and remove objects which might be picked up and thrown by the snowblower. Keep children and pets far away. • Be Body Smart: Toiling away outdoors can be hard on your body, especially for older people. So give your heart and back regular breaks so you don’t overdo it. Stay hydrated and don’t overdress or you’ll quickly be soaked from sweat.

Canady, and interior designer from EON Office, their suggestions. Not too many big changes were suggested, but a couch was the most popular item desired. Other things like painting, and other new furniture pieces were desired as well, but for the most part

the staff didn’t see the need for too many changes. “I think we’re very fortunate to have this room and size to begin with,” Diane Rich, English Department head, said. “It’s a great space to have.” The room has kitchen appliances like a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and refrigerator, but also work appliances like copy

machines. The microwave and toaster oven were sequestered to another part of the room, away from the kitchen area, because it’s too much electricity for the socket to handle. “It’s not the most decrepit faculty room around, but still,” Seibert said. “A lot of people spend a lot of time and work in here.”

Rich said there’s nothing wrong with the room structurally, and she would be interested to see what Canady

comes up with from all of the suggestions. “It’s nice to be surprised,” Rich said. “Get different input and see what happens.” Canady said the work will be done by the end of the calendar year, so things will begin moving quickly. “Every time we’ve done this, everybody loved what has come out of it,” Canady said. Over 40,000 entries were in the drawing, and Plainville is the first Connecticut school to win for the three years the contest has been around. The company has given out six faculty lounge makeovers so far. Marie Gull, marketing manager for California Casualty in the northeast, said she was excited to see a Connecticut school win. She visits schools quite a bit, and said she appreciates the hard work that teachers do. “I’m in all these schools and I see what they go through,” Gull said. Greg Friz, assistant vice president and regional manager, came out from Pennsylvania to congratulate the PHS staff on being selected. He said so far all the makeovers the company has done have been fun and have created a totally “new feel” to the spaces. “It’s exciting when you individuals who work so hard, now they get to kind of turn it into their own space,” Friz said. During the faculty meeting, Assistant Principal Jonathan Coe said he was sifting through his email when he saw one was a suspicious “You’ve won” subject line, thinking it was probably See Wins / Page 25

Fellow program participant DJ Cassone, a Linden fifth grader, added while working on a colorful mug, that it is “fun to make clay sculptures and glaze them.” Toffolon fourth grader Emma Lynn Ranno explained that she enjoys the After School Program yoga class at Toffolon “because it is relaxing, calming and fun!” At the middle school level, enrichment courses include cross country, cooking, and flag football. Seventh grader Amy Muller said the cross country club is a good way to stay in shape for spring track season, and helps her to run faster and longer distances, also noting that she has had the opportunity to meet and make new friends through the cross country club program. Middle School of Plainville faculty member and cross country coach Jackie Franklin added, “This is the first year we have had a cross country team and, with the help of fellow faculty members Jason Criniti and Shaun Berard, it has been a very positive and successful experience for all students involved. Cross country is unique in that it is both an individual and team sport. It allows kids to build confidence through finishing races and improving their times, and camaraderie through cheering on and encouraging each other both in practice and at meets. As a coach, it is great to see the kids working together, getting stronger, and feeling proud of themselves. I am sad to see the season end but certainly looking forward to next year.” In addition to the many extra-curricular programs, clubs and activities, Plainville High school also offered an SAT preparation course as part of the After School Program sessions. Thanks to a portion of funding for the After School Program secured by State Rep. Elizabeth Boukus, students pay a nominal fee to participate in course offerings. Courses will take place on Mondays and Thursdays after school at the elementary and middle schools, and busing is provided home for students at no cost. Each session See Program/ Page 27
