STUDENTS ACCEPT ADDIE’S CHALLENGE

Lucille Shearer, third from right, started the OASIS at Tunxis Community College for veterans coming home from war. Nelson Algarin, far left, spent four years in the Marines, and said ‘OASIS has been like a home away from home for us.’ | Adam Stuhlman / The Plainville Citizen

A nearby OASIS for veterans By Adam Stuhlman The Plainville Citizen

Students at Linden Street School are reading and earning “bones for shelters” through “Addie’s Challenge,” the school’s reading program. Linden students have a goal of reading 13,000 books by the end of the school year. The school partnered with PetSmart, which will donate that number of bones to local animal shelters. Pictured: Linden students gather with Addie, Principal Eshoo’s dog, and some of the bones earned thus far as part of the “Addie’s Challenge” reading program. | (Submitted by Lynn Davis)

Responding to the overwhelming need for therapeutic help for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, several members of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs took it upon themselves to work on improving the transition for soldiers returning from war by establishing the OASIS at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, at the junction of Routes 6 and 177. OASIS stands for Operation Academic Support for Incoming Service members and the program provides a place for Tunxis student veterans to meet, study and socialize. There are study and conversation areas as well as computers and internet access.

“We started back in 2009,” TCC Veterans Advisor David Welch pointed out. Lucille Shearer, who founded OASIS, added that when the group first formed, 57 veterans participated. The number now stands at 250. Welch, Shearer and former GFWC President Grace Lindsay said they enjoy the work they do with veterans. The General Federated Womens’ Clubs of Bristol, Farmington Valley and Plainville raised funds for equipment and furnishings for the OASIS. The facility was expanded in 2012 in a renovation that tripled the size of the program area when two new social rooms were added to an existing study and computer area. Located in Founders

dition, he has written about his life experiences, and has been nominated for an award. OASIS comes equipped with couches, computers, and a swear board. Yes, a swear board. Every time a person curses, it costs them a quarter. As OASIS continues to grow and attract more veterans, Shearer feels it won’t be difficult to keep it open, as she pointed out that TCC became a 401c3 non profit last year, which enables OASIS to receive corporate donations.

Hall, the Tunxis Veterans’ OASIS is part of a larger initiative started in 2008 by the Connecticut Department of Veterans’ Affairs to form Vet OASIS Centers at all of Connecticut’s public colleges and universities. Lindsay’s son served in Iraq, Shearer had relatives that served, and Welch served during the Vietnam era. “We try to provide a welcoming atmosphere to veterans,” Welch said. “A place like this makes things easier for returning veterans.” Shearer said that she has seen veterans develop strong bonds at OASIS over the years. Unfortunately, the group is not immune to tragedy. “We are always growing,” Shearer said. “I have seen them communicate, some come to tears, and one committed suicide last year.” Oasis participant Nelson Algarin served as a lance corporal in the Marines for four years and spent seven months in southern Afghanistan, before serving a second tour on standby in Libya. During his time overseas, he said he saw things that were disturbing, and that the transition home was very hard. “The first months were difficult,” Algarin said. “I got help from the Veterans Affairs, and OASIS has been like a home away from home for us. I love it.” ‘Us’ includes fellow veteran Perry King. “It has been a tough transition,” Army Specialist King said, speaking of returning home, “especially sometimes dealing with younger kids that don’t understand

what we went through. It also bothers me when people associate Muslims with the Taliban.” King has been in the military for six years, and plans to re-enlist. Despite the tough transition, King said OASIS has been “therapeutic,” and that it’s “nice to be able to talk to someone that won’t judge you.” Algarin, who lost two friends during his service, is pushing forward with his life by studying psychiatry. He wants to focus on mental health for veterans. In ad-

of the population bikes to work regularly. In Connecticut, about 0.3 percent of the population, or about 4,500 residents bike to work. Comparatively, 88.4 percent of the state, or about 1.5 million people, either drives alone, or carpools to work, according to data provided by Kevin Nursick, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation. Census data shows that the average commute to work is nearly 25 minutes, a possible reason why more people aren’t riding bikes. Bill Barnes, who works at Bobby Sprocket Bike Shop in Southington, said he thinks some cyclists are worried they won’t be able to get assistance if they get a flat or have other problems on a longer ride. One way to combat that is See Bikes / Page 9

a new bicycle roadside assistance program offered to AAA Southern New England Insurance members. The program works essentially the same way as vehicle roadside assistance — a AAA van can pick up stranded bicyclers with mechanical problems, and transport them to a location within 10 miles. Members get two bicycle calls per year. Fran Mayko, AAA spokeswoman, said that the program’s gotten one call already from a biker in New Canaan. The insurance company has 16 vans equipped with bicycle racks available to pick up bicyclists or provide minor repairs such as fixing flat tires or slipped chains. Gary Nicol, who owns Pedal Power in Middletown, said that the shop sees “a ton” of flat tire repairs or minor tune-ups. “I think that’s a huge barrier for people,” Nicol said, “we fix so many flat tires, which is a relatively simple repair, but something that people who aren’t real bike geeks really might not know.” The passage of the Vulnerable Users Bill in the last legislative session means that any motorist who fails to ex-

ercise reasonable care and causes serious physical injury or death to a vulnerable user of a roadway — a category that includes cyclists and pedestrians among others — could be fined up to $1,000 in addition to any criminal action. “It’s important to remember that safety on the roadways involves the cooperation of all parties, and requires the commitment from both motorists and cyclists or pedestrians to follow the rules,” Nursick said. Nursick said that in “roughly 50 percent of crashes, it’s the bicyclist or pedestrian who caused it.” He said that the DOT is taking steps to make roadways safer for cyclists, however, including widening shoulders and adding bicycle lanes.

Family Dollar has agreed to have these installed, according to the report. As for why Family Dollar decided on this location, and why it wanted to move in the first place, William Galske, attorney for the company, said that there was a “good demand for business.” Paul Beck said that this move would increase the size of the store while offering a “more complete selection of merchandise.” He also said that Family Dollar’s goal was to “get as close to our core customers as possible, while providing strong products for our customers’ needs. It also gives us a better and more modern facility.”

Faith

A11

The impact of televangelists on American religion Back in the thirties, Grandma Roy made sure that we kept the Sabbath Day holy. After church and Sunday dinner we often would cluster near the radio to hear her favorite religious programs. She had especially enjoyed S e t h Pa rkRalph er’s hymnfest Lord Roy from the fictional town of Jonesport, Maine. Seth Parker was the pseudonym used by Phillips Lord, raised in Meriden and son of Dr. Albert J. Lord, for years beloved pastor at the city’s First Congregational Church. Grandma’s maiden surname was Lord, and she would wink as she assured us that Phillips must be a distant cousin. We usually listened to thirty minutes of gospel music on “The Old Fashioned Revival Hour”, changing stations when Charles Fuller began his sermon. The favorite radio preacher of my parents was Ralph W. Sockman whose practical messages on faith were broadcast for many years on NBC’s “National Radio Pulpit”. This brings to mind a high-

point in my early days of ministry. In the summer of 1957 the Bishop sent me to a large Harlem congregation whose senior pastor wanted to ‘try out’ a white assistant. My job description included procuring speakers for special parish events, and an anniversary dinner was a few months away. I was young and naive, and suggested that we invite Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson and Dr. Sockman. Perhaps one of them would come. The pastor smiled indulgently. “Don’t count on it,” he mused. We were both stunned and elated when all three agreed to speak! This led to a long, glorious and memorable evening.. Today there are several hundred religious radio stations in the United States — about a dozen in Connecticut — but the advent of television created larger audiences who watch televangelists. With enormous commitment and energy, Mother Angelica, now 91 and disabled by a stroke, pioneered the Eternal Word Television Network which reflects traditional and assertive Catholicism. Among its many programs, EWTN plays tapes of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, a leading candidate for sainthood, whose “Life Is Worth Living” series

on television attracted a huge following in the ‘60s. Brigham Young University sponsors BYU-TV, presenting the Mormon faith. Then there are the evangelical networks and stations — many of them. The networks that I am able to watch on my television include Trinity, Daystar, Inspiration, Word, Church, and SonLife. JUCE-TV, launched by the Trinity Broadcasting Network, seeks to attract youth as an antidote to MTV. My choice of religious programs on television include the the “Joy of Music” with Diane Bish at the organ, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the Gaither singers. Some of the preaching may lift spirits, such as that of Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, T. J. Jakes and Mark Jeske. Films of old Billy Graham Crusades are shown. Unfortunately, too many of the televangelists are avid fundamentalists who studied the scriptures with blinders on, and were never exposed to credible Biblical scholarship. The most popular are proficient showmen — Benny Hinn, John Hagee, Sid Roth, Jack Van Impe and others — who win followers by compelling rhetoric, claims of healing and other miracles, and/or generous portions

of ‘end times’ prophecy that keep watchers on edge. Some appear to have fund-raising as their primary concern, promising that God will pour down blessings on those who send them generous checks. I can become annoyed because it is my religion that various televangelists distort. Too often Christianity is presented as some sort of loony cult, crammed full of superstition, magic, and fantasy combined with arrogance and ignorance. Too many claim that God told them this or that. Frequently they get into partisan politics, or preach that a holocaust at Armaggedon is approaching. Most simply ignore the words of Christ: “Blessed are the peacemakers”. Maybe you’ve wondered where Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart are today, each seriously wounded by scandal that tarnished their ministries a generation ago. Both still are on television. After his release from jail, Bakker, now 74 and remarried, opened new headquarters in Branson, Mo., where he mixes religion with selling buckets of imperishable food, solar generators, radiation filters and other

products needed to survive a worldwide disaster which, he warns, soon will come. Jimmy Swaggart, 79, still sings well, and he and his wife, Frances, son, Donnie, and grandson, Gabriel, all play major roles on his SonLife network based in Baton Rouge, La. As before, his ministry spends about as much time demeaning other expressions of faith as it does in promoting his own narrow credo. Some days I ask myself: is it any wonder that more and more Americans distance themselves from organized religion? Even so, there are thousands of clergy and houses of worship that serve God faithfully, supply intelligent moral leadership, offer rational messages of hope, provide spiritual support and an extended family, help feed the hungry, and comfort the suffering and sorrowful. That they embrace diverse doctrines and rituals is secondary. May they cooperate together in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Students in Camille Westfall’s technology education classes built and sanded the ladders, while students in Lori Vigue’s art classes painted them. When the art department needed new display stands for the townwide art show, students in Westfall’s classes built 16 plywood display stands for the show.

The streak continues PHS baseball is state tournament-bound By Nate Brown

The Plainville Citizen

Despite a difficult start to the 2014 regular season, the Blue Devil baseball team qualified for states May 15 following a 4-1 victory over visiting Bristol Eastern. Plainville overcame an 0-2 start this spring, as well as a stagnant offense, to reach the postseason yet again. This will mark the program’s 38th straight appearance in the state tournament. “After the rough start we had, we stuck together, and we’ve found a way,” PHS coach Lou Mandeville said. “Once we got home (from Florida), we were a lot more comfortable. We found a way to win some games. We’ve been playing some good defense, the pitching’s been good, and the hitting is coming.” Unfortunately, the hits weren’t coming at the beginning of the year, leading many to believe that the team’s other talents would go to waste. In Plainville’s two-game stint at the Wide World of Sports complex at Disney World in Orlando, the team was outscored 15-0. While the pitching was lackluster, the lack of offense was even more worrisome. Since that time, though, the Blue Devils have been shutout only once – during the team’s first matchup against Bristol Eastern, where they lost 4-0 – and have averaged 5.1 runs per game. “We’ve played around with (the batting order), but it’s more about the kids just being a little more comfortable in their at-bats, and understanding the adjustments in See Baseball / Page 17

Girls keep tourney hopes alive For the first time in recent memory the Plainville High School girls tennis team stands a chance of qualifying for the state tournament, though this season the locals are fighting the weather as much as the schedule. “We need four more wins,” PHS coach Chuck Radda pointed out, “and we have a shot in many of those matches, but it’s unlikely we’re going to get them all in and that may cost us.” Unlike most sports, which require 40 percent of contests be victories for a team to qualify for the postseason, tennis requires fully half, and at press time the Lady Blue Devils were 5-6 with six to go. “It’s a tall order,” Radda said, “but this team is capable.” The veteran coach noted that part of the bad start this season (0-4) was getting the right players into the right slots. Since juniors Agata Baltyn and Emilia Filipkowska have taken over at one- and two-singles, and Emily Duda and Sarah Abdelsame have settled into one-doubles, the team has fared better. “It’s been fun to watch Agata and Emilia develop as tennis players,” Radda said. ”They more or less play the same, smart, patient game, but they play it better every time out.” The one-doubles team also comprises two juniors. There are but three seniors on the entire squad. Rounding out singles are senior Giovanna Rossetti and sophomore Emily Bienasz, both of whom began the season at doubles. Filling in their vacated positions have been differing combinations of Olivia Burns, Kristina Petit, Alicia Sliwka, Martha Boltromiejuk, Isabella Fil, Ashley Nalewajek, and Erin See Tennis / Page 17

Brochu. Only Sliwka and Nalewajek are seniors, so not only are the Lady Blue Devils looking for success this year, but for some time to come, especially since, Radda said, “this crop of freshmen is the best we’ve had in years. Their development has been off the charts.” Radda admitted it would be nice for the kids to make states since that has become the benchmark of a successful season. “But whether they make it or not,” he said, “nothing will diminish the personal and team achievements the girls have reached this season ... despite the weather.” -- Submitted

the at-bats,” Mandeville said. “A lot of kids we have this year are playing varsity for the first time and it’s taken a little longer to get adjusted at the plate, and during the atbat and in games, but we’ve seen some good pitching too, and good pitching is always going to slow down hitting.” Yet the pitching the team has faced hasn’t been nearly as impressive and consistent as that which Blue Devil hurlers have delivered themselves. Thought to be a weak spot going into the year due to the graduation of three starters, the young pitching staff has been a bright spot for Plainville. Juniors Michael Munson and Brett Snowden have shown grit and growth over the season, staying focused even when the Blue Devil offense has failed to give them much support. “Mike Perry, our pitching coach, has done a great job with the pitchers. They’ve become ‘pitchers.’ They don’t give in to hitters, they work the ball in and out, and they’ve given the defense behind them a chance to make plays. But they’ve done a great job attacking the strike zone, and when you attack the strike zone, you give yourself a chance to be successful,” Mandeville said. One of the main reasons the staff has been so successful is the consistency pitchers have shown throughout the season. In the team’s 16 games this season, the pitching staff has allowed only three or four runs during a game on 11 different occasions. “It’s coming, it’s coming slowly, but we’ve got to get some more timely hits,” Mandeville said. “But we’ve been finding a way to win games and the kids are hanging tough.” While the staff has been solid, it remains to be seen if a superstar will rise to the

challenge and lead the Blue Devils moving forward. Mandeville is just fine without one. “This has been a total team effort; I don’t have one superstar, which is great. If you’re a coach, you don’t want superstars, you just want a bunch of kids that want to be successful,” the coach said. “We really don’t have an individual that’s standing out. Everybody in some way is doing their job, and things are good. The kids are going out and fighting every day to be successful, and that’s all you can ask.” The Blue Devils will wrap up their regular season with a two-game homestand. They will host Berlin Tuesday, May 27 and Maloney Wednesday, May 28.
