Top Southington students branching out By Julie Sopchak The Southington Citizen

As the school year comes to a close, Southington High School’s top three students look forward to pursuing their own separate career paths stemming from the roots they’ve established in town.

Board of Ed wouldn’t drop plan for full-day kindergarten By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Citizen photo by Julie Sopchak

From left, salutatorian Jonathan La Follette, essayist Molly Potter, and valedictorian Bryan Davis.

After community forums, public hearings, town meetings and much debate, full-day kindergarten will officially begin in Southington in the fall. Although budget cuts had to be made to make the program work, the majority of the Board of Education members and the administration felt the decision was necessary to move the district forward, and parents did, too. “There were a couple things we looked at and we (were) not going to reduce any further,” School Superintendent Joseph V. Erar-

di Jr. said. “We shared with the board that technology was left intact, safety was left intact, and all-day kindergarten was left intact. That’s how strongly we felt about all three issues.” In January the school board voted to put the full-day kindergarten program in the budget. But the Board of Finance recommended that the school board’s $85.33 million proposal be reduced by $1.1 million, putting the program in jeopardy. On May 13, the Town Council voted 6-3 to accept the finance board’s recommendation and not restore

Kristen Keska and Frank Punzo stand in front of a fenced, vacant property on Wonx Spring Road.




Residents who live on Wonx Spring Road are accustomed to having a 37-acre piece of property in their neighborhood vacant, as it has been for 25 years. But the former location of a metal factory is now the proposed site for an industrial park. Wonx Road Partnership brought its proposal to the Planning and Zoning Commission on May 21. Some neighbors, including Kristen Keska, gave the commission a petition signed by 85 residents demanding a public hearing. After some debate, a split commission granted the hearing, set for June 3. Keska said the main concerns are having an industrial park next to a residential neighborhood and possible contamination of the property. Residents have said they have reviewed reports that indicate the state found contaminants on the property and that cleanup work has

‘Small, but mighty’ community fights cancer at Relay for Life Photo by Steve Cieslewski

By Eric Vo Special to The Citizen

For the past 14 years, hundreds have shown their support by participating in the Relay for Life. This year was no different, as more than 500 participants walked around the track at Southington High School in the 15th annual Relay for Life May 31 and June 1. Families and friends braved the heat as they walked around the track, and some children even raced each other. Some participants wore purple shirts, signifying their having survived

In fact, it was her family that started the Relay in Southington 14 years ago. “Back then, there were only hundreds of people,” Champagne said. “Now, some years you’ll see thousands of people come out.” Champagne, a town resident, said she was the chairwoman for the first 12 years, but her illness prevented her from continuing. She’s a survivor of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph tissue, which is found in the

lymph nodes, spleen and other organs of the immune system, according to the National Library of Medicine. “Doctors told me I only had nine years to live,” she said. “And here I am going on my

Although she’s lived well past her doctor’s initial estimate, she acknowledged that “it’s an ongoing effort.” “So many people have died from my illness, but I don’t know. God loves me,” she said. “I just put my life in his hands. This is my purpose. I’m supposed to help people with cancer.”

The Southington Citizen — Friday, June 7, 2013 said, her emotions run high every time. “I feel it. I just feel what people go through,” she said, fighting back tears. “I feel their pain.” Because of her efforts and contributions to the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life, Champagne was named honorary chairwoman. She gave a brief speech encouraging the crowd to keep showing their support and to keep fighting. Over 130 survivors gathered for the Survivors and Caregivers Lap. As the survivors walked in one direction around the track, the caregivers walked in the other. They met in the middle, where hugs and kisses were given.

RFL Continued from page 4 There’s no question the Southington Relay for Life has grown since its inception. As Champagne recalled prior years, she described how so many people showed up that they couldn’t even walk around the track. While watching the participants walk by Friday, she smiled as she saw children and students make their way. “One of my goals was to bring younger kids here,” she said. “I wanted the kids to know that having cancer isn’t a death sentence.” Having participated in the event every year, Champagne

As they walked, each survivor had his or her name read. Leading the group of survivors was this year’s cochairwoman, Joyce McAloon, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. Like Champagne, she was glad to see the younger generation sacrificing their weekend to support a cause. McAloon said she never got sick and feels she was “chosen to have cancer.” “It was the 10th tumor. The other nine were benign,” she said. “Here I am, supporting the mission to find a cure. And not a single person forgets that mission.” Despite the temperature in the 90s, McAloon and Robin Guzauckas, the other cochairwoman, both said they weren’t surprised to see so many people show up to the track. “This community stands tall. Local residents, businesses and restaurants have given us everything we’ve asked for,” McAloon said. “We couldn’t ask for a better community. We’re small, but mighty.” This year’s relay’s theme is “Where in the World is a Cure for Cancer?” and the theme

It was a theme chosen by Guzauckas because she noticed how people not just in Southington, but all over the world, were fighting to find a cure for cancer. “The world is full of terrible things, like cancer,” she said. “But look around you.

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse’s legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical strength formula. According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism where one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, backache & more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301. Now at:

The development proposal has also been submitted to the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission, which has done a site walk but has yet to vote on it.

Hiking at Crescent Lake “William Parker Memorial Hike” and was sponsored by the Land Trust. Irene Murray and her husband, Fred, who often do activities outdoors together, were the guides who led the group through the woods and around the lake. People of all ages — the youngest was 2 years old — came to explore. After a briefing on the trail and some safety tips, the group started out on their adventure. After a few minutes of walking on the dirt-covered path, Irene Murray came across a tree lying in the way. “Uh-oh, there’s a tree that looks like it just came down,” she said. “How can we tell that?” she asked 7year-old Tyler Karen.

By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen By 10:30 a.m. June 2, a group of nine people stood by the entrance to the Orange Trail at Crescent Lake. Some carried backpacks with water bottles and snacks, others had maps and a few had walking sticks. They were prepared for the two-mile hike ahead of them in the spirit of Connecticut Trails Day Weekend, which is coordinated by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association. “We love to get out in the woods and see what we can find,” said Irene Murray, the guide for the hike and a member of the Southington Land Trust. The event was called the

Ethan Kahn, 9, walks along the edge of Crescent Lake June 2. “Is it because the leaves are starting to die?” Tyler asked. “Looks like it,” Irene Murray replied. When the group continued on, someone quickly yelled, “Snake!” A black “rat” snake, about five feet long, was sunbathing on a log on the side of the trail. “Cool!” 9-year-old Ethan Kahn said. “It’s our first wild animal of the day,” Irene Murray said, laughing. Ethan was with his grandmother, See Crescent, page 13

funds to the education budget. Last week, the school board adopted a $84.23 million budget that kept full-day

kindergarten but eliminated the SOAR enrichment program. It will cost $396,000 to implement the full-day program: $147,745 for equipment and furniture and $198,196 for staff. Erardi said the three-

phase technology plan, safety, and full-day kindergarten were “vitally important” for the next school year and that adjustments had to be made to implement all three. Erardi reduced the budget by $93,500 by eliminating the SOAR program. The district is looking to offer extended and personalized learning in the elementary schools to make up for the loss of the program. “I am certain that there will be enriching opportunities not only in the classroom, but at the close of the school day for all the students,” Erardi said. Brian Goralski, the school board chairman, said it was a good choice to keep the all-

day program since there was a lot of support for it from the community, but he was disappointed that programs had to be cut. “Anytime you reduce a program it’s not a good day,” Goralski said. “I’m very happy we’re moving forward with all-day kindergarten so it will shape all students entering the district from this day forward.” Board member David Derynoski voted against the budget changes last week, not because of full-day kindergarten, but because part of the motion was to take $250,000 from a supply account. “By using that money now in advance of the school

year, I think is not a good fiscal practice,” Derynoski said. Derynoski said he’s always been a proponent of full-day kindergarten, but he also was disappointed that programs had to be cut to make the budget work. The administration has wanted to move to the fullday program for the past three years, but started talking last September about implementing it for the 2013-14 school year. Administrators and school board members believe fullday kindergarten will give teachers more time in the day to spread out topics. More time will allow for more interaction, more play time during recess, and more hands-on activities, and it will help children develop the social skills needed to advance in school. The current half-day program is two hours and 40 minutes long, while a full-day will be six hours. A few community forums were held in October. Nearly 300 parents showed up at Strong School on Oct. 4 for one of the first forums. Many supported the plan, but some did not. John and Mary Yuskis have been in favor of moving to full-day model. They attended community forums, Board of Education meetings and public hearings on the school board’s budget to voice their opinion about the need for change. They have two children in grade school, and their youngest child, Megan, will start kindergarten in the fall. They had hoped she will have the opportunity to attend fullday kindergarten and are “ecstatic” with the outcome. The Board of Finance and Town Council “forced the Board of Education to have to make a decision the hard way,” Mary Yuskis said. “I’m thrilled that this was the end result, but frustrated there couldn’t have been (support) with the dollars in place in the first place.” The school board and administration “were steadfast in their support for the program,” John Yuskis said. “I thought they were creative

Two brothers at SHS cutting into their future By Eric Heredia Special to The Citizen

After brothers Christopher and Patrick Carozza Jr. mowed the lawn at the Watertown home of their grandparents, the pleased customers spread the word to

their neighbors. Now the two Southington High School students in the vocational-agricultural program have their own landscaping business, Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping, serving about 20 customers.

They get up at 6 a.m. and take a bus from Waterbury to Southington High School. After classes for the day end, they head back home on the bus, load a two-blade John Deere mower into a trailer and end up mowing at least 10 lawns by the end of the weekend. Patrick, a 15-year-old sophomore, only has a driver’s permit, so one of his parents, Tammy or Patrick Carozza Sr., comes along for the ride. The boys used the money they made on the job to pay back their father for helping Photo by Christopher Zajac

Don’t make time for Lyme By Shane Lockwood Plainville-Southington Health District

Spring and summer are officially here, triggering the imagination of warmer weather and longer days. As we look forward to turning down the thermostats, opening windows, and spending more time outdoors, Gene Gagnon, a registered sanitarian of the PlainvilleSouthington Health District, would like to remind everyone, “ticks which transmit Lyme Disease become more active when temperatures are above 35 degrees, and since Connecticut is in the top 10 for states reporting cases to the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention, this is a little too close for home.”

Lyme disease makes hundreds of thousands of people sick every year; it is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. Children are especially hard-hit by Lyme disease with the highest incidence among children between the ages of 5-14. Ticks live in places where there is a lot of tall grass, shrubs, and leaves and wait for an animal or person to walk by, then grab on to find a good place to attach themselves. They might hide in a person’s hair, or behind the knee, or even under clothing. Ticks bite into a person or animal’s skin and start drinking their blood. Tick bites don’t usually hurt, so you may not even notice. The tick can stay attached for a few days. When it is full

it will fall off. To prevent tick bites: — Avoid tall grass and overgrown, brushy areas. — When hiking in wooded areas, stay in the middle of trails. — Consider using insect repellent, following manufacturer’s instructions. — Tuck pant legs into socks, wear long-sleeved shirts, and closed shoes. — Wear light colored clothing to see the ticks and make it easier for removal. — When returning indoors, shower using a wash cloth or puff to remove any attached ticks. — Examine yourself, children, and pets for ticks when returning indoors. — Talk to your veterinarian to find out how to protect your pets from tick bites.

Main St., 6 p.m.

What to do after a tick bite: — If you or a loved one is bitten, remove the tick promptly. — Grasp the tick’s mouthparts against the skin, using pointed narrow tweezers. — Pull steady until you can ease the tick out of the skin. — Do not pull sharply; this may tear the mouthparts from the body of the tick and leave them embedded in the skin. — Do not squeeze or crush the body of the tick; this may force fluids from the tick into the skin. — Do not apply substances such as petroleum jelly, nail polish, or light a match to the tick while it is attached. They may agitate the tick and force more infected fluid into the skin. — Once you have removed the tick, wash wound site with soap and water. — Observe the bite site over the next several weeks

for any signs of expanding rash. — Removing ticks within 36 hours of attachment reduces the risk of infection. If you are bitten by a tick, a small red bump may appear in a few days to a week, usually at the site of the bite. The bump may feel warm and tender when touched. It may resemble a bull’s eye, with a red ring surrounding a clear area and a red center; it is often confused with a spider bite. Contact your physician for a further evaluation. An engorged deer tick can be tested through the Plainville-Southington Health District. For more information about ticks and Lyme disease, contact the Plainville-Southington Health District at (860) 2766275. Shane Lockwood is the health director for the Plainville-Southington Health District.

Blue Knights back in the finals By John Pettit Special to The Citizen

Don’t let Joe Rivera’s baby face, sinewy frame and awshucks demeanor fool you. With a baseball in his right hand and his feet firmly planted on the pitcher’s rubber, Rivera is imperturbable. That much is obvious after No. 4 Southington’s 4-2 victory over eighth-seeded Trumbull in the Class LL semifinals June 4 at Muzzy Field. The junior showed remarkable poise, especially in the first and seventh innings, while Southington’s 3-4 hitters, Matt Sirois and Andrew Goralski, went a combined 5for-6 with three RBIs in leading the Blue Knights into their second state championship game in coach Charlie Lembo’s three seasons. Southington (20-3) will take on No. 6 Amity June 8 in the title tilt at Middletown’s Palmer Field. “It feels great,” Lembo

Photo by Dave Zajac

Southington right fielder Justin Rose makes a valiant effort, but the ball pops out of his glove in the first inning of the Class LL semifinals at Muzzy Field in Bristol June 4. said. “This senior class is now going to two championships and a semi. That’s a pretty special class right there. I don’t want this season to end. I love these kids. They have so much fun together. We’ll tell them on a Sunday to be here at noon, they’ll be there at 11. They just want to hang out togeth-

er.” Rivera survived a jittery first inning that saw Trumbull grab a 1-0 lead out of the gate. Brandon Liscinsky started the game with a single and eventually scored on Casey Mack’s one-out single off Justin Rose’s glove in right field. Rose had tried to make a sliding catch.

It could have been worse for Southington, but Mack, the son of former Major Leaguer Shane Mack, was caught stealing and James DeNomme was left stranded after doubling. “It looked like Joe didn’t really have much confidence in his breaking pitch and his fastball was elevating,” Lembo said. “Maybe it was a little bit of nerves. Once he got that curveball going, I had a good feeling.” Southington had an immediate answer offensively, scoring two runs on three hits in the bottom half of the first off Trumbull starter Colin Keyes. Ted Shaw singled and later came around to score on Sirois’ booming double to left-center field. Sirois then scampered home on Goralski’s bullet single up the middle. Southington tacked on two more runs in its fourth. Rivera reached first on a fielder’s choice and moved to

second on Shaw’s single. After a wild pitch, Matt DiNello lofted a sacrifice fly. Trumbull elected to intentionally walk Sirois to get to Goralski. Goralski got even by ripping a single to right field to plate Ted Shaw and put the Knights on top 4-1. “We’ve been working hard all year,” Goralski, who was 2-for-3 with three RBIs, said after the game. “It paid off, but we’re not done yet. We’ve got to still win one more game. “When the guy in front of me is intentionally walked,” he added, “it’s my job to come through.” Trumbull cut the deficit to 4-2 in the top of the sixth on DeNomme’s RBI groundout and made things interesting in its seventh. Ryan Fritz walked and, after Rivera enticed Carl Johnson to foul out to Sirois at third, Luke Waldek reached on Shaw’s

Spikers advance to semis, fall to Glastonbury By Michael Guerrera Special to The Citizen

Glastonbury boys volleyball coach Pat Ryan said he joked with Southington coach Lou Gianacopolos before the CIAC Class L semifinal game June 4. “I said, ‘Tonight’s going seven (games),’ Ryan recounted. “The joke is that volleyball games only go five.’ Ryan said he made the same comment after Glastonbury tied the match up with a Game 4 win. If they could have, the two CCC rivals likely would have played all night. But a winner had to be decided and with a neutral court at Bulkeley High School overflowing with drama, tension seeping out the edges of the gym, top-seeded Glastonbury (19-1) hung on to take down No. 4 Southington 3-2 and advance to the state finals to

take on No. 3 Staples (18-1). Game scores were 25-17, 22-25, 23-25, 25-19, 17-15. “In the end, it came down to us really trying to get focused on the passing because it got away from us in the middle (of the match) and then, at the end, us serving very tough,” Ryan said. Both teams missed out on their initial match-point opportunities in Game 5, but when Glastonbury got its second shot, the Tomahawks put it away, with senior Jack O’Callaghan registering his 18th and final kill of the night. “Jack played probably his best match for us in his history at Glastonbury High School,” Ryan said. Gianacopolos coaches O’Callaghan in the offseason and said, “Jack had probably the best game we’ve seen.” Like the first two matches between these bitter rivals that split a conference

Glastonbury used a 7-0 run early on to comfortably win Game 1, but Southington jumped back to take games 23, using its own spurts.

With momentum hardly favoring the Tomahawks, they came out and bumrushed the Blue Knights to take Game 4. “We just decided to settle down and take it one point at a time,” O’Callaghan said.

The always unpredictable Game 5 saw nine lead changes before Glastonbury was able to shut the door. “I think it came down to one or two balls here or there,” Gianacopolos said. O’Callaghan expected nothing less against Southington. “They made a lot of good adjustments to us, so I think the most important thing was that we were eventually able to recover from that,” he said. Ryan said the rivalry between the players from both teams has at times been contentious, but it’s softened in recent years. “It’s a friendly, but pretty intense rivalry,” Ryan remarked. Southington’s season comes to a close at 18-3 with another conference title banner. The Blue Knights graduate nine seniors, including

Top-seeded Blue Knights power on through Newtown, Glastonbury By Ian Croughwell Special to The Citizen

Jordyn Moquin and the top-ranked Southington Blue Knights got the job done again Thursday, routing the No. 17 Newtown Nighthawks 13-1 on a sweltering day in the second round of the CIAC Class LL softball tournament. Moquin followed up on a firstround no-hitter of Shelton by allowing just one run on four hits with three strikeouts. She dug in during

day,” said Bores. “We laid down some great bunts and played good offensively overall.” The Blue Knights played effective small-ball. They were very patient in the batter’s box, drawing numerous walks, and laid down bunts to get runners into scoring position. They also scored in bunches: three runs in the third, five in the fifth and three in the sixth. “We take it game by game,” said Bores. “In one game anything can happen, so you have to play for today.

the later innings, not allowing a hit after the fourth. “She was behind in the count a lot, but she gutted it out,” said Southington coach John Bores. “She knew how to finish and did a great job.” The Knights gave Moquin plenty of runs to work with as they swung the bats well, collecting 11 hits. Shortstop Sydney Ferrante led the charge with four RBIs on two singles. Catcher Rachel Harvey added a couple singles and three RBIs on a 2-for-4 day. “We got some very timely hits to-

Respect everyone and fear no one.” The Nighthawks picked up their only run in the fourth inning after Danielle Shine advanced on an error and scored on a Katie Laaksonen single to left field. Other top Southington performers included Lauren Zazzaro, who went 2-for-3 with a triple, a double and an RBI. Nicole Wadolowski chipped in with a triple, an RBI, and a run scored. The Blue Knights defeated No. 8 Glastonbury 10-2 May 31.

stay relaxed out there, concentrate on the batter and take it one pitch at a time,” Rivera said of the tense seventh. “The first inning, I was pretty anxious to get out there — semifinal game, big game — but once I settled down after the first inning I started throwing to my spots and doing better. I got more control of (the curveball) as the game went on. I just calmed down after that.” The Blue Knights squandered some golden scoring opportunities and left 10 runners on base in total. The Norwich Universitybound Sirois (3-for-3, RBI) started the Southington third with an opposite-field single to right and scurried

The Blue Knights, who put the lead-off batter on in each of the first four innings, also stranded two with one out in their sixth against Trumbull’s second reliever, Ryan Bayuk.
