Divided loyalties: Town line cuts through couples’ homes By Jesse Buchanan Special to The Citizen

Despite their Southington address, there’s an 18square-foot piece of Richard and Jackie Hackbarth’s Gwen Road house that’s in Meriden. The town line cuts across the back corner of the house, through their bedroom and across their bed. “I sleep in Meriden, my wife sleeps in Southington,” Richard Hackbarth said. The Hackbarths and others whose properties strad-

dle town boundaries get to joke about geography and sometimes use the services of multiple municipalities. But there is also a lot of confusion when it comes to issues like property taxes. To avoid a 50 percent surcharge on water from Meriden, the Hackbarths had to hire a surveyor to prove that part of their house was indeed in the city. Throughout their 41 years in the house, Richard Hackbarth said he’s

had town and city assessors give him different interpretations of where the line fell through their property. The Hackbarths were told by town officials that where their children slept would determine where they’d attend school. “They told us if they slept in the front bedroom, they’d go to Southington, and if See Divided, page 12

Jackie Hackbarth and husband Richard live in a house on Gwen Road in Meriden that is also partially in Southington. The town line bisects their bed - Jackie sleeps on the Southington side and Richard, Meriden.

Program coordinator for Summer Youth Theater for 25 years, Lisa Carroll has been involved in theater since she played the Grinch in a first-grade production. It’s the “creative cosmos” in theater that keeps her coming back, she said. “It’s so funny because people who don’t do theater don’t get it,” Carroll said. “I was painting the set for ‘The Little Mermaid’ and I can’t explain it, I got all tingling. It’s just a part of my soul.” Summer Youth Theater

started in 1986. Carroll joined in 1988 and since then has directed 51 of the 55 plays produced by the program. Stage manager Brandi Sabato has been working with Carroll for 14 years. “I think it exploded because of the work Lisa has done to allow the program to grow and change,” Sabato said, “along with her willingness to adapt to those changes. It allows us to put on the best shows that we can.” In its early years, Carroll said, the program attracted See Theater, page 10

The Democratic Town Committee announced its nominees for the November election Thursday night, July 18. Town officials and family members filled the banquet room at the Falcon’s Nest in Plantsville. The party nominated Sandra Brunoli for town clerk, a position held by Leslie Cotton for 20 years. Cotton announced last month that she would not run again. “I’m honored,” Brunoli said. “I’ve been a lifelong resident of Southington and it’s exciting to contribute to the future growth and continue the advancements Leslie has made in the office.” Christopher Palmieri, Dawn Miceli, John Berry, Chris Kelley, Denis Conroy and Donald Rinaldi received nominations for Town Council. Kelley was also given a spot on the Democratic Town Committee. “Everything we do is in the best interest of the town,” Palmieri said. “That’s what separates the Democratic Party from the rest of the town.” The committee also nomi-

nated candidates for Board of Finance: John Moise, Sandra Feld, Edward Rosenblatt and Kevin Beaudoin. Moise had been a member for six years, but has been off the board for the past two. Moise said he wants to “bring back the teeth that the Board of Finance has lost.” Moise said he wants to work more with fiscal policy to help improve the town’s credit rating and help officials follow the Town Charter. Board of Education nominations were given to David Derynoski, Zaya Oshana, Patricia Johnson, William Lutz, Jerry Belanger and Gail Doerfler. Belanger had been a board member from 2003 to 2007. “I’m excited to be returning,” said Belanger, who took a few years off but added that he knew he would return someday. James Sinclair, Ryan Rogers, Susan Locks and Anthony Carvoni Jr. were nominated for seats on the Planning and Zoning Commission. Thomas Murphy, Angelina Santa Maria and Rudolph Cabata were nominated for the Water Board

“There are areas where I think I can serve the town and I’ve never left dedicating myself to the town, I’ve always been on many different committees and many different organizations because I love Southington,” Triano said. “If the voters see fit, I will continue to serve on the council. It’s in the voters hands.” Town Councilor Al Natelli, who is not running for reelection in November, said he wants to spend more time with his family and give “new people with new ideas” a chance to run. He might consider serving on the council in the future. “Sometimes it’s nice to take a step back and

The Republican Town Committee announced its nominees for the November election Monday night, July 22, with four of the six members currently on the Town Council not running for reelection. “They might come back and run again, but right now they want to give someone else an opportunity to serve,” said Brian Callahan, chairman of the Republican Town Committee. “If you look at the list of accomplishments the past 3.5, four years, they’ve done a tremendous amount of work.” The party nominated

Cheryl Lounsbury and Stephanie Urillo, who currently sit on the council, as well as Michael Riccio and Victoria Triano, who have served on the council in the past. The new faces nominated are Paul Champagne and Thomas Lombardi. “We wanted to bring in some experience and we also wanted to bring in some new people,” Callahan said. Triano was on the Town Council for 16 years and was chairwoman, she served on the Board of Ethics for six years and served on the Commission of Disabilities for about a year. When the Republican Party asked her to serve again she felt that it was time.

Hungry? Italian-American Festival this weekend By E. Richard Fortunato Special to The Citizen

Unico and the Southington Sons of Italy will sponsor the 9th annual Italian-American Festival Friday, July 26 through Sunday, July 28th. Opening Friday at 5 p.m., two dozen street vendors will be offering traditional Italian foods such as pasta fasulo, soffritto, sausage and peppers, pizza frita, broccoli and sausage, porchetta, prosciutto and meatball grinders, pizza, artichoke francese, veal and peppers, eggplant parmigiana, arancini and gelato.

The crowd will be entertained by Sound Alternatives — “with rhythms and themes appealing to multigenerational and ethnic tastes,” said Entertainment Coordinator Joe LaPorte — performing on lower Center Street until 11 p.m. Center Street will be lined with Italian and American flags, hanging colored lights and balloons. A few vendors will offer Italian specialty items: CDs, books, movies, jewelry, novelties and how to make Italian wine at home. Establishments along the street will be open to the public.

Festivities, along with sights, sounds, aromas and tasty treats to please diverse appetites, will continue Saturday from noon to 11 p.m. with a brief welcoming ceremony at 5 p.m. No Italian festival is true to its heritage without a lively religious component. An outdoor altar will be set up in the festival parking lot adjoining the Sons of Italy building for an Italian Sunday Mass at 10 a.m. Fr. Frederick M. Aniello will preside with attendees seated under tents. A statue of the Blessed Mother, a gift of Patrick Baker & Sons to the Italian

Rosary Society, will be in view so that folks may follow the centuries-old tradition of pinning dollar bills to the statue. Donations will be used for charities supported by the Italian Rosary Society. In the richly-reverent lore of Italian tradition, following Mass, a procession will carry the statue east to Liberty Street, south to Eden Avenue, west to Bristol Street, north to S. Center and circle back to the festival area. The procession will include the K of C Honor Guard, Sam Vinci’s Italian Marching Band, members of participating societies and all who wish to join. In case of rain, Mass will be moved to St. Thomas Church. The three-day festivities will close Sunday at 6 p.m. Festival Committee Cochair Bill DellaVecchia ex-

plained that “Italian feasts go back more than a century to the great Italian migration to the U.S. They proudly became Americans while continuing to honor the customs of the old country.” Dolores LaPorte added: “It brings back memories of my childhood; all the wonderful foods, fireworks, games, entertainment, face painting, and just being happy with so many people.” The essential meaning of the feast, DellaVecchia said, is “it carries on a treasured tradition of those who are proud and respectful of their ethnic heritage. It’s a reminder of the joyous folkways of their parents and descendants who were rooted in these customs, keeping See Festival, page 7

Until the town fills the position, David Lavallee, the acting town planner, will con-

tinue to pick up the responsibilities of the director of planning and community development. Mary SavageDunham left the position in December. “I enjoyed the short time I had working with (DeVoe),” Deputy Town Manager and Town Attorney Mark Sciota said. “He felt this was the best for his situation, and I respect that.” Plainville Town Manager Robert E.

Mark DeVoe has resigned after eight days on the job as the town’s director of planning and community development.

“He didn’t leave us on bad terms,” Lee said. “He left on very good terms.” DeVoe’s salary in Southington was set at $90,000. In Plainville, DeVoe will make $80,274. Michael DelSanto, the chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission, said DeVoe worked hard during his eight days on the job. The town will continue to process applications for the position. DelSanto said there “won’t be any lapse in work” because of DeVoe’s resignation. “I have every confidence in our planning department,” DelSanto said. “We’ll eventually get this position filled.” Before Lee made the deci-

sion to bring DeVoe back, he consulted with the Plainville Town Council. Councilors were positive, Lee said, and open to the idea of DeVoe coming back. “When he approached me earlier in the week, it was a relatively easy decision to make if he wanted to come back,” Lee said. “I knew he was well liked by the three boards he reported to.” DeVoe said his apologies to the town in his resignation letter and wished the town employees well. “It is my hope that, having made this decision quickly, the Town may resume its search for an appropriate candidate for this position,” he said.

New YMCA facility should be finished around Labor Day By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Through the sweltering heat one afternoon last week, construction workers made progress on a capital expansion project at the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCA’s main campus on High Street. Two new parking lots, renovated locker rooms and a new women’s center, called Spirit, Mind and Body, are the main focus of the $1.3 million project this summer. By Labor Day, the parking lot and new center should be complete.

“We don’t have an opening date yet,” said Tony Palmieri, the YMCA’s director of operations. “Part of the reason is because of the parking lot project going on at the same time. This could be done sooner, though, and there could be just a soft opening.” The Sprit, Mind and Body Center, which was located at 48 N. Main St., is moving into a 16,000-square-foot building at 130 N. Main St., the former TD Bank building. The back part of the building will be used for the new Spirit, Mind and Body Center, and the rest

Hot days are long days for AC guys By Kimberly Primicerio and Eric Vo Special to The Citizen

Tom Diaz has been so busy installing and repairing air conditioners that he has to set an alarm on his phone to remind himself to eat. Diaz, a Southington resident and heating, ventilation and air conditioning technician, worked 14-hour days during last week’s heat wave. He’s been inundated with frantic callers complaining about their lack of central air. He’s done his best to prioritize the calls, all while keeping hydrated and trying to stay cool. Beginning July 14, the state was scalded by a heat wave that brought consecutive days with temperatures in the 90s. With high temperatures and a high dew point, Friday, July 19 was the worst day of the heat wave, according to Gary Lessor, assistant to the direc-

Friday, July 19, the temperature in Meriden was 94 degrees, but the heat index, which factors in the amount time for me,” said Co-chair Bob Triano. “It’s an opportunity to serve with a great team of hard-working people who proudly share our heritage with everyone from Southington and beyond. It’s a time when everyone is Italian for three days.”

of moisture in the air and estimates how the temperature feels to the human body, was 105 degrees. “Despite the fact that it’s really only 94,” Lessor said, “because the dew point is so high, it’s creating an apparent temperature that is 11 degrees warmer than it really is.” Although Friday was the

fifth consecutive day with temperatures in the 90s, it didn’t stop people like Diaz from doing their jobs. “It’s been nonstop,” Diaz said Friday afternoon while working on a central air conditioning unit at a house on Mount Vernon Road in Southington. He’s been in the HVAC business for nearly 20 years and started his own business, Comfort Solutions Heating and Cooling, three years ago. “It never ends, which is a good thing. My phone’s been blowing up.” Diaz, a 1991 Wilcox Technical High School graduate, said he has to sort out the emergency calls from the non-emergencies. When it’s over 90 degrees and the heat index makes it feels like it’s 110, it becomes a life safety issue, especially for infants, the elderly and people with medical conditions, Diaz said. “They can’t function without it,” he said. This week, there’s been little time for air conditioning installation. It’s been mostly repairs, he said. Such work

has him on the go from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and creates the need to set an alarm to eat lunch. “Honestly, it’s the reality,” Diaz said. “I have to plan the time to get a sandwich and eat it on the way to the next call.” It’s the same situation for Donald Silberman, who owns Silberman Heating and Cooling in Wallingford. Silberman’s day starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 or 6 p.m., he said. With the higher temperatures, Silberman said, it’s not unusual for air conditioning units to break down. Sometimes he has to attend to a system in the attic, where he said it feels like 140 degrees. Just like Diaz and other HVAC companies, he’s received more calls than usual because of the heat wave. “We’re all pretty busy,” he said. “The normal installation calls we have to put aside and go out and do the repairs ... I have to do the service. You got to do what you got to do.”

Town road work heats up By Savannah Mul Special to The Citizen

Orange construction cones on town streets, police directing traffic and machinery repaving roads have become a common sight in town as an $11 million construction project continues. The road project will take place every summer for three years, Town Engineer Keith Hayden said. “So far, the project is going great,” Hayden said. Work to be done is determined by the condition of each road. Hayden said the

roads are undergoing cracksealing repair, milling and overlay, and full-depth repaving. Broken drainage basins are being fixed as well. In all, 311 sections of road will undergo routine or preventative restoration; reconstruction will be done on 334. Work began last Friday. Hayden said some repairs will continue into August. After the town decided what roads to include, priorities were set, Hayden said. “We work on a priority basis,” he said. “Traffic volume is considered. We’re not go-

ing to fix a road that has 100 cars pass through when one has 5,000 cars, because the users will get more of a benefit.” Hayden said another priority is whether a school, ambulance company, fire or police station is on the street. “We want good access for emergency vehicles,” Hayden said. Tilcon Connecticut is handling the project. Tuesday afternoon, crews were laying down a level course on Pleasant Street and putting the top coat on Woodruff Street. The level course is the first phase of the paving process, said foreman Louis Albertino. “We are on the final part of on Woodruff,” Albertino said. “We’ll be back on Pleasant this week to finish up.”

Hayden said the construction will improve the town. “When the roads are worked on as a network, it brings up the grade of the network,” Hayden said. “As more and more roads are done, the users benefit from them.”

Theater Continued from page 1 40 to 50 participants each summer. But since 1997, the number has been close to 150. “I never, ever want to turn a kid away from the youth summer theater,” Carroll said. As interest in the program grew, age-group-specific programs were created for the young actors and actresses. The Juniors are in third to sixth grades, Footlights in seventh to ninth, and Spotlights in 10th to 12th. Each group performs different plays under different directors. Sabato said Carroll’s commitment to accommodating all interested participants strengthened the program in popularity. To commemorate Carroll’s 25 years with the theater program, Sabato said, an extra performance has been added to the schedule on July 28. “The Timeless Show” will have a cast made up of children from all three age groups as well older performers who have been involved with theater in the town. “It’s all very hush-hush,”

Carroll said. “I don’t really know any information about it, except that there will be a show.” Details of the show are being kept from Carroll until opening night, Sabato said. No one is allowed to talk to Carroll about the show. “The show is for Lisa,” Sabato said. “But we are also using it as a platform to celebrate the program and recognize the popularity in the town.” The summer program is sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department. During the rest of the year, Carroll is library media specialist at Northeast Middle School in Bristol. “It’s her summer off,” Alyssa Fontana Bunel said, “but she doesn’t take it off. She commits herself every year.” Bunel is directing the Footlights in their performance of “The Little Mermaid” and said, “My love for theater totally started all with Lisa. We all have yearly jobs, but this is a home away from home and it’s been wonderful working with her.” Bunel teaches English in the Alternative Education

program, Alta, for grades 9 through 12, and is the musical adviser for high school plays throughout the school year. Bunel and Sabato described Carroll as humble. “If you compliment her, she will deflect it,” Bunel said. Carroll asked the Footlights, who were taking a water break from rehearsal, “How much do you love summer Youth theater on a scale of 1 to 10?” Most of them shouted back, “10!” Carroll said she has learned through working in live theater that “nothing is important, but everything is important. It’s that crazy Zen you have to reach, you have to realize it is live theater, things happen and you have to be ready.” Now running at the high school is the Spotlights’ show, “The Wiz,” with its second and final performance tonight. Next Friday and Saturday, the footlights perform “The Little Mermaid,” and the “Timeless Show” tribute to Carroll is set for Sunday, July 28. All shows are held at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are on sale for $8.

Accepting applications The Assessor’s Office is accepting applications for additional local veterans’ exemptions through Oct. 1. This exemption is income based. Limits are $41,200 for single persons and $45,000 for married couples. Questions may be directed to the Assessor’s Office at (860) 276-6205.

Divided Continued from page 1 they were in the back bedroom, they’d go to Meriden,” Richard Hackbarth said. The couple didn’t have any children. Richard Hackbarth said they’re able to use the Meriden dump and often attend Southington’s Music on the Green. Meriden’s acting assessor, Debbie Zunda, said property taxes are split between municipalities for properties that fall on the town line. The split is determined by the amount of property falling on each side of the municipal boundary. In the Townline Square area, the Big Y Supermarket and Il Monticello banquet facility are in both Meriden and Wallingford, but mostly in Meriden. According to Zunda, Meriden receives about 65 percent of the property tax money from Big Y, while Wallingford receives about 35 percent. Owning a property that straddles a town line can get “interesting,” Zunda said. Some even move to avoid the hassle of frequently clarifying addresses that conflict with the town of residence. “There’s always a lot of confusion, especially with

25 Years

motor vehicles,” she said. “We try to keep an eye out for those properties.” The Wallingford-Meriden line bisects the home and pool of Ed and Samantha Dieffenbach on Spruce Glen Terrace. The couple’s tax bill, about $6,000 a year, should be split between the two towns. But every time either town does a revaluation, they get $6,000 bills from both. “We’ve been through the aggravation three times,” Ed Dieffenbach said. Samantha Dieffenbach said they have to appear before the zoning boards of appeals in both Meriden and Wallingford to correct the errors made by the revaluation companies every few years — and to avoid a $12,000 property tax bill. “Each time reval comes around, I have to go to both towns,” Samantha Dieffenbach said. “Both towns were assessing at 100 percent.” The couple lived in Meriden before moving to the Spring Glen house. Although half of their property is in the city, their son had to start going to school in Wallingford, since they had a Wallingford address. “We didn’t push that, because Wallingford schools are fine,” Samantha Dieffenbach said.

Big tank is ‘little setback’ for work on school By Savannah Mul Special to The Citizen

you start digging in the ground, you find things you don’t expect,” Palmieri said. Pocock said he is working with the town to figure out when the tank was put in. “I don’t know. It was definitely something that was missed along the line,” he said. Elsewhere, tests are being run in the gymnasium at DePaolo to find out why the floors buckle, Palmieri said. “The floors have been a problem for over 10 years,” Palmieri said. “We were running tests to see if moisture is underneath, but when we got the results back, there wasn’t moisture.” Given the amount of money the town is spending, Palmieri said he wants to make sure “it’s all done right.” The construction at DePaolo is part of a two-school project with a total budget of $89.7 million.

and Kennedy middle schools at referendum last year. Palmieri said the problem with the gym floors is limited to DePaolo. Overall, Pocock said, each

construction project is “running tight and on schedule.” Problems are being handled through teamwork between the committee and Newfield Construction, he said.

The recent discovery of a large underground septic tank during the renovation and reconstruction of DePaolo Middle School is being described by project officials as a “little setback.” The tank was not indicated on site plans. Part of it had to be removed after it was found in early July, according to Tom DiMauro, project executive for Newfield Construction. DiMauro said the tank is “outside the footprint of the building, but it interfered with drainage pipes.” “We removed a portion of it to put a pipe in and are still working on removing more,” he said, adding that he’s not sure when the rest of the tank will be removed. Edward Pocock Jr., the Middle School Building Committee chairman, said the discovery “caused us a

little setback.” “It’s going to be an extra cost,” he said. “I’m glad that it was found and is being rectified and taken care of.” The committee met at DePaolo Tuesday, July 16, to evaluate the work. The total cost of removing the tank is unknown. “We are working on the costs associated with it and the timeframe,” said DePaolo Vice Principal Chris Palmieri, a committee member. Palmieri did not know why there was no record of the tank in the plans for the school, which was built in 1967. “We don’t know,” he said. “I’m not sure where it came from. It wasn’t in use by us.” Palmieri said the tank is “pretty large and very substantial” and there is no point in keeping it in the ground. “There is no mistaking that it’s there. I guess when

Plans to approve the West Street business zone development are on hold after a public hearing last week during a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. “We’ve been looking for a long time now at the West Street corridor and what the best fit for the area would be,” said James Sinclair, commission secretary, Friday, July 19. “We received the comment from the public and (are) reviewing it. It wasn’t entirely what we were expecting.” After the public hearing Tuesday, July 16, Sinclair made a motion to table the West Street business zone proposed plan, which the board unanimously approved. “We’ve heard a lot of information tonight and the board has to review it,” Committee Chairman Michael DelSanto

said during the meeting. The proposed plan confused some residents. Sinclair said the map was hard to read and property owners were unsure of how exactly their properties would be affected by the proposed regulations. “I’m not in favor of this,” Monica Cusano, of Welch Road, said at the hearing. The proposed plan showed her land being split, leaving half residential and changing the other half to mixeduse development. She said this would limit her opportunity for possible development. “I can’t claim it all as a residential zone,” she said. A major concern of residents was that West Street would become similar to Queen Street. Ron Tooley and his wife have been in Southington since 1979 and live on West Street. “You’ve done enough to West Street. It shouldn’t become like Queen Street,”

Tooley said. Town Attorney Mark Sciota said last Friday the changes are still up for approval. “The commission will take it all in,” Sciota said. The commission asked for another map to be issued to address the confusion neighboring residents had. The West Street subcommittee has been working for the past two years on how to proceed with developing the area, including changes to zoning. The aim has been to give the area a colonial look and feel and attract unique businesses to town. Michael Baker, of Patrick Baker and Sons, a business owner on West Street, said he was excited about the news when he found out about possible rezoning. “We are excited for the potential for new businesses to come into the area and I do support this venture,” Baker said. Sinclair said after the July 16 meeting that the commission will review all public comments and taking them into account while looking over the proposed plan. The Planning and Zoning Commission will meet next on Aug. 20.

Christian camp looks to start growing again By Jesse Buchanan Special to The Citizen

If those working to preserve Camp Faithful on Queen Street find it a battle to maintain the meeting houses, gingerbread cottages and bunk rooms, it may be because the camp’s founders never intended it to last 144 years. The Connecticut Advent Christian Camp meeting Association owns 27 acres of woodlands between Queen Street and Interstate 84, home to nearly 100 buildings that include small yearround cottages and bunk houses that will host youth and family camps in the coming weeks. Residents and former campers are working to revive Camp Faithful by improving the grounds, drawing more residents and getting more campers. They’re tackling a property that has deteriorated in recent

The retreat was established 140 years ago. decades and that few outside the small Advent Christian denomination realize exists. The camp dates from the late 1800s and evolved from temporary structures, often tents on wooden platforms, thrown up during religious gatherings in the summer. Attendees heard sermons and worshiped but, primarily, waited for the return of Jesus Christ, which they believed would happen at any

Each of the human body’s 24 vertebrae has four protrusions (“articular processes”) that interface with their adjacent counterparts on vertebrae above and below to form “facet joints”. While facet joints provide the spinal column with flexibility, they may become misaligned due to a variety of causes. Facet joints can become worn through osteoarthritis, an accident, or chronic poor posture. In addition, the ligaments that maintain the joints in alignment may become shortened due to the aging process or scar formation after injury. Once shortened, they can force the joints out of alignment. As a result, painful muscle spasms may arise. The chiropractor’s goal is to gently correct such misalignments, relieve pain, and restore proper function. Chiropractors are trained to evaluate back pain and will use gentle, specific skills to identify, evaluate, and treat any involved spinal areas. Call our office at (860) 621-2225. Here at 200 Queen St., our goal is to provide you and your entire family with quality chiropractic healthcare. The answers you need. The care you deserve.

use. “A lot of them started with just tents on platforms. Then people thought they’d get fancy and put up some walls,” said Miriam Loghry. The Southington location was picked since it was a short walk from the Plainville stop on the railroad. Since then, it’s been surrounded by the development of Queen Street and the construction of Interstate 84, which took some of the camp’s land in the 1960s, according to Kim Willard, fi-

moment. James Loghry, a former minister of a Bristol Advent Christian church, lives with his wife, Miriam, at the camp during the summer in a oneroom cottage. He said the denomination’s theology doesn’t differ greatly from the teachings of other evangelical Protestant groups but has, since its founding, emphasized the belief in a literal return of Jesus to Earth. Known to Christians as the second coming, it’s what early camp attendees were ex-

pecting as they pitched tents and built small cabins. “They really thought the Lord would return soon,” James Loghry said. “They were not building to be anything permanent.” “They gathered every year in those years with a strong expectancy that the Lord would return soon,” he said. As years passed, lodgings at the camp became more permanent. A photograph from 1912 shows a meeting house with a tent roof and twostory cottages in the background.

Bible camp focuses on mission to Africa Photo by Savannah Mul

By Savannah Mul Special to The Citizen About 450 children braved the heat and humidity Wednesday, July 17, to explore Africa in a Faith Living Church vacation Bible camp adventure. Rose Karotkin, the camp’s director, said this year’s theme was the 19th-century missionary work in Africa of David Livingstone. Ronald Thomas, pastor of Faith Living Church, kept coming back to the theme and the story of Livingstone. “March is when we really started nailing it down,” Karotkin said. “It’s been really amazing and to be able to hook it to Korah. It’s great.” Korah is an Ethiopian village Faith Living Church has been working with for about a year. Thomas said families who attend the church have

adopted children from Korah. Children in Korah live in “dump conditions,” Karotkin said, picking through garbage for food.

“I sent a team to investigate the area,” Thomas said. “It’s heartbreaking to get food from the garbage. Now we are sharing the Gospel with them and the kids here.” Ben Thomas, children’s director at Faith Living Church, was part of the team that visited Korah. “It was incredible to see the state of the kids,” he said. This five-night program runs through today, and is a free, townwide event open to children ages 4 to 12. Children are bused from Meriden, Southington, Plantsville, New Britain and Bristol. During the adventure, children participate in field activities, learn lessons from the Bible and take turns going down seven slides built by Karotkin and her team of junior and senior youth

groups. “We started constructing the slides about three weeks ago and went off ideas Pastor Ron shared,” Karotkin said. “He said he wanted a lot of slides to represent the mountains in Africa and our biggest one is 50 feet high. It’s amazing what a little paint can do.” A play is performed each night in the church, led by church volunteers and Thomas, to teach the children Gospel lessons. Thomas said the play ends on a cliffhanger each night but the last, so the children will

HBO’s take on slayings leaves questions unanswered By David Wiegand San Francisco Chronicle

Conventional wisdom has it that a good documentary will answer questions, but if many fundamental issues are left unresolved in “The Cheshire Murders,” it’s partially because some things are just unknowable. The film, which aired on HBO Monday, July 22, details the horrific 2007 murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Michaela, 11, and Hayley, 17, during an invasion of their perfect home with its manicured lawn and neatly shaped shrubbery, in the idyllic town of Cheshire, Conn. Dr. William Petit Jr. was also brutalized during the attack, but managed to escape before the two sociopathic invaders strangled his wife, raped her post-mortem,

raped the younger daughter, poured gasoline on the two girls and set them and the house on fire. One aspect of the case that should be knowable but isn’t is why the Cheshire police apparently got to the Petit house only a few seconds after they were alerted by a Bank of America manager that the Petit family was being held hostage in their own home, yet remained outside the house for nearly a half hour while several heinous incidents were happening inside. In the film by Kate Davis and David Heilbroner, the cops will say only it’s not their policy to detail what they did when at a crime scene. But police dispatch logs confirm police presence outside the house for that span of time and Petit as well as his sister-in-law, Cindy Renn,

and her parents, the Rev. Richard and Maybelle Hawke, believe the police could have saved the three victims. There is much more to the story than the graphic details of the invasion and whether the police could have intervened earlier. The case became a pivotal issue in the debate over the death penalty in Connecticut and that’s a big part of the film. Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky were arrested fleeing the burning Petit house on the morning of July 23, 2007. Two years later, the Connecticut General Assembly voted to repeal the death penalty, which had been reinstated in 1973. The repeal was vetoed by Gov. Jodi Rell, in part because Hayes and Komisarjevsky had yet to be tried. Many in the state, including those

who’d previously opposed capital punishment, wanted these two dead. The state eventually repealed capital punishment in 2012. From the funeral for his wife and daughters six days after their murder to the present day, Dr. William Petit has been a vocal and visible advocate for justice for his family. The film doesn’t have to over-emphasize the sad

irony that a man whose job is to save lives, to “first, do no harm,” and his wife’s parents - a man of God and his wife - have clearly had to grapple with the dense moral complexities at the heart of the death penalty issue. If they have come down on the side of wanting jusSee HBO, next page

Police, Petit have no comment on documentary An HBO documentary on the 2007 Petit home invasion in Cheshire, years in the making, aired Monday, July 22 to coincide with the sixth anniversary of the triple homicide. Those in town connected to the attack had no comment on the upcoming film. William Petit is the only survivor of the attack. His wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and daughters, Michaela and Hayley, were killed by the attackers. Richard Healy, an attorney who handles press contacts for William Petit, said neither he nor William Petit had seen the documentary, and had no comment. According to reviews, HBO filmmakers are critical of police, who waited a

half-hour outside the Petit house after learning the invasion had taken place. “We’ve chosen not to comment on this documentary,” said Lt. James Fasano, Cheshire Police Department spokesman. The HBO film crew was among the media that descended on Cheshire following the home invasion and followed the trial of convicted murderers Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky in New Haven. Much of the documentary shows the state’s debate over the death penalty, a punishment many wanted to see meted out to the two killers. Connecticut repealed the death penalty in 2012. —Jesse Buchanan

‘Lulu’ taxes on the rise By Joe Aldieri Special to Southington Citizen

Hey all you people of Southington, you know who they are! They could be your next door neighbor, a close friend, even someone related to you. Well they are people like us, before we elected them. Complain when taxes go up, and quite cleverly, they seem to find new ways to what they call “balance the budget,” “to fix roads,” “fix bridges.” Sure now, are these the same people they once were? Give them a little power and it goes to their heads. I know we can’t go backwards: one room school house, 10 to 15 cops and no such thing as full-time fire fighters. If the old-timers saw how many people we have now in our town hall, and it keeps getting bigger, they would flip their lids. We had three selectmen and no fancy building and only part time! Wow! I know we have more people now. Did our borders expand? Is Southington get-

tice, can anyone really blame them? Perhaps not, but death penalty foes still believe capital punishment is not a deterrent. Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky each offered to plead guilty to the crimes in return for a life sentence, but their offer was rejected by prosecutors, who wanted them to face the death penalty. We also get a great deal of insight into the troubled lives of Hayes and Komisarjevsky, both of whom had been abused as children. To the filmmakers’ credit, the often dismal facts of the men’s lives are not presented in any way as an explanation or apology for their actions in 2007. Instead, we come away believing that there was a

ting bigger? Ok back to the taxes. Let’s raise the gas tax to pay for fixing the roads and bridges that are old. Drive under one someday and look up. Well, I suppose you better not. The less you see … believe me, you don’t want to see. Well that lie is exposed. And that tax keeps going up. This tax is a lulu: cigarette tax is higher than the cost of the product! Well it is a nasty habit and we’re doing it so people will quit. Are you serious? It’s to save you who try to balance the budget. That tax is a honey, a cash cow. Let’s see now, sales tax. The poor governor who proposed that tax: wow did that make him look like a bad guy. He got raked over the coals. Let’s see now, it was only one percent when that tax began. What is in now? And that keeps getting higher. Well, no grumbling now?! Gambling: oh you nasty people blowing your money. Well we will find a way to make you quit. Put a tax on gambling. But don’t worry:

the money will go to your kid’s education, new big schools. We’ll raise taxes every now and then to build more, bigger schools, state of the art someone stated. How bad, I mean really bad off, are we when they claim to balance the budget after all looking at all that tax money we paid for these services and didn’t get. What’s left? Borrow, borrow, etc.! Now we go deeper in that black hole, not only for debts current, but that big interest money. Come on guys, don’t cream puff it. Those taxes: gas, cigarettes, gambling, sales, home improvement, new housing etc., you know you never intended it to go where you guys said it was going. For crying out loud, let’s call a spade a spade. The roads are bad. Someday, someone is going to get killed when the bridge falls in the river as a couple bridges already have. With the money that was to go where it was intended these many, many years the schools would be paid in full. No more clack clack roads; ride under, over bridges and you wouldn’t

certain inevitability to how they’d wind up in life. The deck was stacked against them from the start. Narrative by one of Komisarjevsky’s former girlfriends is especially telling, as she details sex play that often involved bondage. She was always appreciative of Komisarjevsky wanting to make sure the ropes weren’t too tight. We also get a terrifying look inside Komisarjevsky’s mind through prison diaries and from recollections by others of his uncanny ability to remember every item he ever stole from various home invasions before the Petit murders. Yet, perhaps the greatest unknowable aspect of this singularly horrific case is specifically what triggered these two monsters to do what they did to Jennifer and

her daughters. Psychological details, memories of former girlfriends - all contribute to a generalized knowledge, but because the minds of Hayes and Komisarjevsky are clearly so far outside the knowable norm of human existence, it still makes no sense. “The Cheshire Murders” is a tragic story in every way. We might at first find ourselves thinking about all the other heinous murders that don’t occur in upper middle class Connecticut neighborhoods and wonder why they don’t merit the same kind of documentary treatment. It’s a valid question. At the same time, the reality that it can happen here - “here” being Cheshire, Connecticut should remind us that it can and does happen everywhere.

have to say a prayer. All you politicians are small potatoes compared to the state and federal level. Billions are wasted. The government is too big to see. Blinded and don’t care. The elephant and the donkey don’t really want what’s good for the country. They only stand up for their own party. Right or wrong, they won’t budge; a bunch of jack—s, like little kids when one kid says “If I can’t play I’m going to take back my bat and ball.” Hey don’t take my word for it, read the papers and news every day. Boy, I made up for articles I haven’t written lately. It will be interesting if I get any feedback. I got thick skin. Let me have it. That’s why I always end my articles: live long, laugh often, love much. Oh yeah.

P.S. The Italian fest is coming up — homemade wine contest. I don’t know if one could be called a wine maker when you buy grape juice and wait for it to turn to wine. Pick 25 to 30 boxes of grapes, stomp the heck out of them; strain them, rack 3 or 4 times, clean everything the juice touches — got to treat wine tenderly, like your wife. Aha, now you’re a little old winemaker you. I won 18 medals, gold silver and bronze years past. I remember the first time I entered my wine. It fell on our wedding anniversary — my first gold and first time ever that a native concord ever got a gold. She’s been gone these many years but every time I see that medal I see that smile. That memory is worth all the gold in Fort Knox.

Tech? Kids ‘eat it up’ at summer program By Savannah Mul Special to The Citizen Students at Hatton School are exploring oceanography, national parks and geometric shapes during the summer school enrichment program in preparation for a open house, Friday, July 26. Jessica Wuenneman, a second-grade teacher at Derynoski, is working with a small group of students from grades 1 to 3. “The children will build a robot out of boxes and cans,” she said. “They will paint the pieces and assemble it.” On Friday the students’ work will be on display in the library at Hatton, director of summer school Dave DeStefano said. Board members and parents can see what the students completed in the three-week program. Wuenneman said her

class focuses on geometry. On Monday the group brought in old cereal boxes, egg cartons, paper towel rolls and coffee cans to start constructing the geometric robot. During the planning and building process, students will demonstrate what shapes are used the most by making an electronic bar graph on classroom laptops. DeStefano said that there are five classes in the elementary enrichment program at Hatton, which has been running since 2005. DeStefano took over as director two years ago. Claire DiCenzo teaches first grade at Thalberg School and her students are creating posters and PowerPoint presentations based on their research of ocean life.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, July 26, 2013

Famous tenor to appear at Summit By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen For years, Ronan Tynan sang “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch at Yankee Stadium, which led him to sing at other sporting events and to console Americans during the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. In September, Tynan will sing and speak at The Summit at Plantsville. The famous tenor, 53, has overcome obstacles. At the age of 20, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after a motorcycle accident. Within a year of the surgery, Tynan joined the Paralympic Games and between 1981 and 1984 he won 18 gold medals and set 14 world records. Barbara Blau, the director of therapeutic recreation at the Summit, heard Tynan sing at baseball games years ago, but has never heard him give one of his motivational speeches. After learning more

about his life and watching some videos of him on YouTube, Blau reached out to Tynan in April, hoping that she would be able to have him visit the Summit. His life story is “such an inspiration,” Blau said, that she’s looking forward to Tynan sharing his wisdom with residents and others. “He called me and it was very exciting,” Blau said. “He told me he wanted to come here and speak. “That was kind of exciting, to hear Ronan Tynan on the other end.” “It was a wonderful idea that we are so fortunate that someone of this caliber is coming,” said Colleen Donahue, a clinical evaluator and marketing coordinator for the Summit. “He’s world renowned.” Blau invited him to speak on Sept. 9 to honor and remember people that lost their lives on Sept. 11. Tynan will sing “God Bless America” in tribute to

those who died. “I am very much looking forward to speaking in Southington,” Tynan said. “In regards to 9/11, it was such a tragic event for this country, and I like to move forward and not dwell on the past.” In the wake of Sept. 11, Tynan sang at memorial services and benefits for the first responders, police officers and firefighters of New York City. This September, 12 years after the attacks, he will again remember the victims. “If you listen on YouTube, it’s amazing,” Blau said, “but the thought of hearing him in person in such a small area is so amazing.” With months of planning the event and creating flyers, Donahue is looking forward to Tynan’s arrival. “We hope to reach out to more than just Southington,” Donahue said.

AC Continued from page 7 However, Silberman said, most calls came from people who want their air conditioning unit to make their homes cooler than 70 degrees - something the systems aren’t designed to do. “It’s 100-degree weather. If you get it to be 75 in your house, you’re doing good,” Silberman said. “It’s the humidity that makes you feel uncomfortable.” While Diaz finished his air conditioning job, contractors worked in the front of the Mount Vernon Street house, in direct sunlight, remodeling the house. Over the last five days, the men worked on roofing, replaced windows and installed vinyl siding. Justin Keim, owner of JC Customs in Southington, had a smile on his face as he wiped sweat from his brow. He said it’s been the hottest week of the summer to work in by far. “We drink a lot of water and Gatorade,” Keim said. “We take our time.” Keim said he and his crew just have to “push on and deal with it.”

The same thought was shared by Little Rendezvous owner Steve Chehotsky. The Meriden pizza restaurant has no air conditioning, only fans blowing hot air around. Chehotsky said he brings a towel to work to dry off his face. “You just grin and bear it,” Chehotsky said. John Wagner, manager of Allied Building Products’ Wallingford branch, said he makes sure his employees are staying hydrated and taking a break every hour. The building supply company delivers materials to contractors at their work sites. In the heat, Wagner puts cases of water on the trucks for his employees, and because business is slower during the hotter days, he lets some of his employees go home early. “We try to be over-safe about it,” Wagner said. The hot weather does bring more business. Chehotsky said it’s too hot for people to grill outside or use their ovens, so they get pizza. “If you gotta be here, you might as well work,” Chehotsky said.

churches. Denominations have changed and morphed over the years, and some have declined in membership. “Advent Christian denomination is one of the denominations that have fallen off,” he said. Camp Faithful could benefit more than just Christians, according to Martin. “The purpose of this place is to minister to other people,” he said. Through promotion and beautification, Malinowski hopes to bolster attendance at the youth and family camps. While located in the woods, campers are never far from the amenities of Queen Street and residents of the camp can quickly drive to whatever they need. Her work focuses on the summer camp portion of the property. In the past few weeks, Malinowski, Martin

and others have repainted bathrooms and bunkhouses, rebuilt bunks, replaced windows and worked on how to cut back the encroaching forest. “We need to take care of what (God) gave us,” she said. “We’re trying to do everything we can while we are here.” James Loghry also said that the original emphasis on awaiting the second coming has weakened in recent years, even within his denomination. There’s less emphasis on denominational doctrines, he said, and he doesn’t mind opening the camp to other Christians who share the faith’s underlying beliefs. That doesn’t mean the second coming isn’t important to the Loghrys.

Campers weren’t interested in talking with him, according to Cusano. “They kept to themselves,” he said. Martin and Kimberly Malinowski, a former camper and chairwoman of the board’s youth committee, are rebuilding bunks, painting and trying to make the youth camp accommodations look more attractive. Both feel the obligation to restore the grounds that they enjoyed in their childhood. Malinowski, a Farmington resident, said if there’s no improvement and growth, camp attendance will continue dropping. She was encouraged several years ago when the camp board allowed other evangelical denominations use of the camp. “I’m not big on denominations,” Malinowski said. Opening the camp to more denominations could mean more summer campers and more residents to fill the year-round cottages, many of which are vacant. She and Martin attend Grace Baptist Church in Bristol. While both believe in the second coming, they view it differently than the camp’s founders. “Our life isn’t just to sit here,” Malinowski said. Martin also said it’s important that the camp appeal to more than just Advent Christian

nancial secretary for the camp association board. Highway development also reduced the supply of water for the camp’s trees, some of which are dying and drop branches during storms. The camp went for weeks without power during recent storms. Matt Martin is a third-generation camp resident who is now trying to revitalize Camp Faithful, or at least stem the tide of deterioration. With his parents and two brothers, he grew up living at the camp year-round in a two-bedroom cottage and is now living there again with his wife after serving in the Marines. Attending Southington High School, he had to contend with a myriad of rumors about Camp Faithful. The most prevalent, based on the size of the houses, was that the camp was a colony of dwarves. To dispel it, Martin would point to his brother, at more than six feet tall. He credits his upbringing at Camp Faithful, surrounded by other believers, with helping him to maintain his Christian principles. “It was easier to grow up here and try to live a Christian life,” Martin said. He’s now one of the volunteers who work to maintain

the camp. Growing up someone took care of the property for him to enjoy, Martin said, and now he feels that he owes it to future generations to return some of that work. “We got to enjoy it yearround,” he said. “Someone has taken care of it in the past for us.” Larry Alberti, Southington’s first town planner, worked on zoning Camp Faithful in the 1950s when town planning was being developed. The camp wasn’t conventional, but it was lowkey and full of large, old trees, Alberti said. The camp’s placement, wedged between two major roads, is the result of decades of development that turned Southington from open farmland to buildings or woods. “I can assure you that Southington was real rural, rural farm country,” Alberti said. “Since that time, a lot of the agriculture has disappeared and a lot of the trees have grown in.” “They’re like a vestige there of Victorian times,” he said. Robert Cusano, a former Southington Historical Society president, said he rode his bike around the Camp Faithful area as a child in the 1940s and ‘50s. “You went back there just to see what was there,” he said. “It was very active in the summertime.”

search on information on sharks and now we’re making a video on iMovie.” DiCenzo said the two boys are using the computer program to create an informational newscast about sharks and ocean life. During the first week of class, Dicenzo asked the students what they wanted to learn about. She said the response to use PowerPoint and technology was overwhelming. “The kids eat technology up,” DiCenzo said. “I show them the basics of the program, they explore around and the kids pick it right up.” Gina DiNello, a fifth-grade teacher at Hatton, is exploring national parks with her students.

“We did Yellowstone National Park together, where I taught note-taking and research skills,” DiNello said. After the class completed the research on Yellowstone, Dinello said, students were able to pick another national park and do their own research to create brochures and a PowerPoint presentation that will be shown to the public on Friday. Samantha Casale, 9, said she chose to research Crater Lake in Oregon because “It looks like a cool place to go.” On Monday, Samantha was organizing the information and working on her brochure in preparation for Friday’s open house. “I’m excited to make the

PowerPoint,” she said. With their basic computer skills, DiNello said, once the students had picked their own park to research, they were eager to put together a presentation. DeStefano said the summer elementary enrichment program has about 30 students, in morning and afternoon sessions. Other programs taught are digital storytelling, math and history. “I’m trying to develop more of the program,” he said. DeStefano is working on changes for next year to build partnerships with surrounding parks. “We want to build a better program for the years to follow,” he said.

James Loghry points to Biblical exhortations to wait patiently, although he believes the it could very well take place in his lifetime. James Loghry, like those who founded Camp Faithful, is looking forward to the last days, which he thinks are coming soon. “I’m almost 80,” he said, “and I see a lot of things that if people 100 years ago saw, they would be very excited.” Visit: www.southingtoncitizen.com

Friday, July 26, 2013 — The Southington Citizen

New administrators on the job

1 By Savannah Mul Special to The Citizen

The school system has named three new administrators. Marilyn Kahl, Michael Halloran and Kelly Nichols, all Southington residents, started their new administrative roles on July 1. Kahl, the new principal of Kelley School, started a career in sales before education. She has been the assistant principal of Derynoski School for the past two years. “I saw the opening for principal and went through the process and applied,” Kahl said. “I interviewed with the committee and Dr. Erardi. It was a long process.” Kahl said she is spending her time “finding out the secrets of the building inside and out.” Coming from Derynoski, Kahl said Kelley is a smaller school and there will be a learning curve in adapting to the daily routines of the

school. But one goal she is setting for herself is “I’m getting to know the kids as best as possible. I look forward to working with the kids and faculty.” Kahl said she plans to spend a lot of time in the classrooms as a way to get to know the students and teachers at Kelley. Before Kahl started in the Southington school district, she was a fourthand fifthgrade teacher at Highland School in Cheshire. She left Cheshire, she said, because she saw the opening as assistant principal at Derynoski as an opportunity for educational growth. “I think it’s one of the top districts in the state,” Kahl said about Southington. “Under the leadership of Dr. Erardi, it’s on such a position path with the curriculum and technology.” Brian Goralski, Board of Education chairman, said that Kahl has grown in the district. With her excitement and

energy, he said, he is proud to call her the new principal of Kelley. Unlike Kahl, who was already part of the Southington school district, Michael Halloran is the system’s newest educator. He is one of four assistant principals at Southington High. Halloran, previously with the Hartford Public Schools, was the principal of Capitol Region Education Council, CREC, at the Polaris Center in East Hartford. The program specializes in emotional and behavioral special education. “Michael’s experience in special education will add an excellent new aspect to our school system,” Goralski said. Halloran said this school district has an “extremely good opportunity for growth.” His focus is primarily with the sophomore class, as well as supervising world languages and special education.

“Though it is a large suburb town, it still provides that hometown feel,” Halloran said. “It’s kind of neat; there’s that investment that a lot of people who live in town also teach here.” Halloran said one thing he is impressed with at the high school is the vocational agricultural building. He has been in education for 13 years and never taught at a school that offered programs like that. “I’m excited,” Halloran said. “It’s a huge building and I’m excited to start working.” Replacing Kahl at

Derynoski is Kelly Nichols, who previously taught special education at Hatton School and DePaolo Middle School. Nichols was appointed assistant principal of Derynoski in June. During the school board meeting in June, she said, “It’s almost as if I’m coming home again.” Growing up, Nichols attended Derynoski, and she said she is excited to be back in the school. “All three are great administrators and should bring a lot more to the district now,” Goralski said. “I’m really excited for all three of them and the new school year.”

Plan for an emergency The likelihood that you and your family will recover from an emergency tomorrow often depends on the planning and preparation done today. While each person’s abilities and needs are unique, every individual can take steps to prepare for all kinds of emergencies. By evaluating your own personal needs and making an emergency plan that ?ts those needs, you and your loved ones can be better prepared. There are commonsense measures older Americans can take to start preparing for emergencies before they happen. Create a network of neighbors, relatives, friends and coworkers to aid you in an emergency. Discuss your needs and make sure everyone knows how to operate necessary equipment. If appropriate, discuss your needs with your employer. Seniors should keep specialized items ready, including extra wheelchair batteries, oxygen, catheters, medication, food for service animals and any other items you might need. Keep a list of the type and model numbers of the medical devices you require. Be sure to make provisions for medications that require refrigeration. Make arrangements for any assistance to get to a shelter. www.ready.gov Proll, CFP.

The Basics If you choose to drink, have only a limited (or moderate) amount. This means: No more than 1 drink a day for women, and no more than 2 drinks a day for men. One drink is a: Bottle of beer (12 ounces); glass of wine (5 ounces); shot of liquor (1.5 ounces) For most adults, moderate drinking doesn’t cause any serious health problems. How will drinking less or quitting help me? Drinking in moderation or not drinking at all can help you: Lower your blood pressure; lower your risk of injury, heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer, and liver problems; lose weight; save money; get along better with your family. Who needs to avoid drinking completely? Don’t drink at all if you: Are pregnant or trying to get pregnant; are under age 21; plan to drive a car or use machines; take over-thecounter or prescription medicine that can interact with alcohol (check the label); are recovering from alcoholism; have a health condition that can be made worse by drinking (like liver disease). www.healthfinder.gov

Post 72 steams ahead in state Legion tourney By Ken Lipshez The Southington Citizen

Aggressive base running is a Southington hallmark, so the key for visiting underdog Willimantic was to keep those jackrabbits off the sacks. Willimantic’s miscues mounted. The free passes did, too, so when the Southington bats began to produce, the only uncertainty was when the 10-run mercy rule would be invoked. Southington batted around twice and easily advanced to the round-of-8 in the Northern Division sectionals Monday by battering Willimantic 14-3 in a game terminated in the middle of the seventh inning at John J. Fontana Field. Southington (20-5) now becomes the underdog. Talentladen Zone 7 champion RCP (Rocky Hill-Cromwell-Portland) stands in the way of a trip to the semifinals in Torrington. The teams are slated to lock horns today at Cromwell High School Field at 4:30 p.m. “They’re a pretty good team, but we’re a pretty good team, too,” Southington manager Marc Verderame said. “I think it’s going to be a good game. They’ve got some good pitching and Cromwell was good in high school this year so it’s going

Southington Post 72’s Ted Shaw throws to first base fin the second inning of an American Legion baseball game at Southington High School July 22. to be a tough test. We’re looking forward to the challenge.” Verderame will have UConn signee Joe Rivera on the hill after figuring that Southington could subdue Willimantic without him. Craig Frobel went the distance, yielding three runs on eight hits, walking just two and striking out five. “Depending on his pitch count, I wanted him to go all the way,” Verderame said. “We had Brett Susi in relief. I took the gamble of saving

Rivera for RCP and it paid off. We’ve got a lot of pitching left.” The first four batters in the Southington lineup — Ted Shaw, Brett Shaw, Matt DiNello and Matt Sirois — combined to reach base 12 times in 18 plate appearances. Collectively, they amassed nine of Southington’s 13 hits and scored nine runs. Ted Shaw went 2-for-3, stole two bases and scored three times. Brett Shaw (3for-4, 3 RBI) had run-scoring

singles in both of Southington’s major uprisings (6 in the third inning, 7 in the fifth). Sirois also went 3-for4. Ted Shaw, bound for Sacred Heart University in the fall, has been torturing the opposition all season. “I’ve been around baseball 15 years and I haven’t seen a better shortstop defensively,” Verderame said. “And he’s batting around .475 with 30 or 31 steals. I don’t know what we’d do without him. He starts the fire.” Southington took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Ted Shaw walked, stole second, aggressively took third on a pop fly to short right and scored on an error. Willimantic pitcher John Risley retired the side in order in the second inning but the first six Southington batters reached base against him in the third. Matt Santovasi stole home on the front end of a delayed double steal and Dave Palladino cracked a two-run double with the sacks full. The turning point came in the visitors’ fifth. Frobel retired the first two hitters but Alex Cornell (2-for-3) singled, Risley walked and Chris Gonnelli’s sharp single to center loaded the bases. Connor Hope walked in a run and Luis Vega plated another with an infield

hit. Willimantic (19-10) was a swing away from making it a ballgame with cleanup hitter Aaron Martineau at bat but Frobel struck him out. “That’s what happens when you walk guys,” Verderame said. “He struggled with control against Avon and it kind of manifested a little bit today, but he hunkered down. That could have been a big inning for them.” Southington tattooed reliever Keith Chamberlain in the fifth. Most of the damage came with two out after an error prolonged a potential shut-down inning. Chamberlain walked three in a row and allowed successive hits to Brett Shaw, DiNello and Sirois, blowing the game wide open. “That’s what you have to do in this league, take advantage of mistakes,” Verderame said. “We happened to hit to go along with (five) errors they made and you’re not going to get away with that.” Southington rates as a live underdog against RCP in a tournament where upsets have been precious few. That doesn’t deter Verderame. “Everybody’s kind of held serve but we’re up for the challenge,” he said. “We’ll play anybody anytime.”

Southington’s Edwards leads New England Mutiny to win By Ken Lipshez The Southington Citizen Former Southington High star Shauna Edwards scored a goal as her New England Mutiny came from behind twice to beat the homestanding ASA Chesapeake Charge, 3-2 in overtime, to capture the Women’s Premier Soccer League’s Eastern Conference title Saturday in Gambrills, Md. Edwards and defensive midfielder Kylee McIntosh of Cheshire will now join the Mutiny (8-0-5) for a trek to Sacramento, Calif., where they

will compete in the WPSL Final Four next weekend. “It shows all the hard work and dedication that all the girls have put into this team,” Edwards said. “Having the chance to compete for a national title as one of the top four teams in the WPSL is an honor and I’m looking for-ward to a great trip with a great team.” New England trailed 1-0 when Edwards controlled a cross from Jenna Fisher and banked home a leftfooted volley off the post from the top of the box in the 22nd minute. The game remained tied through

the first half. “One of the defenders attempted to clear the ball but I was in the right place at the right time,” Edwards said. “I think a goal at that time was needed to get us back in the game. It seemed to really pick up the spirit of the team. It was a great feeling knowing I had helped my team.” The previously unbeaten Charge (10-1-2) capitalized on a New England error in the 52nd minute to regain a one-goal edge. The defensive work of Central Connecticut State University star Jewel Robinson of

Farmington helped prevent the Maryland side from scoring the probable clincher. Lightning stalled the game for an hour in the 78th minute. With the official time showing just three seconds to go in regulation, Lauren Reilly of Fairfield University headed in free kick from Notre Dame’s Morgan Andrews that caromed to her off the back post to tie it at 2. Andrews tallied the game winner in the 100th minute after a defensive mistake. The Mutiny previously qualified for the finals in 2004 and 2007.

no stalling. You get penalized if you step out of bounds. It’s very high paced. There is no bottom attacking. You have to defend from the top. It’s a lot of fun.” Murillo said his biggest strength on the mat is his speed, something he had to develop even more wrestling underweight at the high school level. There, he wrestles in the lightest class, 106 pounds. But as a freshman he was just 85 pounds and, last year, as a sophomore, only 95. That meant he was giving away as much as 11 pounds to opponents, a major disadvantage.

Zac Murillo, an incoming junior at Southington High, was a finalist at the USA Wrestling National Championship meet in Fargo, North Dakota last week. Murillo, 15, finished second in the cadet freestyle (ages 15-16) at 88 pounds. “My goal was to make it to the finals because I knew I had a good shot at All-American this year,” Murillo said Monday. “I had the awestruck out of my system when I went last year and struggled. This year I was very confident in what I could do. I set my goal that I wanted to make it to the finals at Fargo and I did it.” Murillo made it look easy. He won his first six matches of the freestyle tournament. He earned tech falls in the first four bouts, making him an All-American. Murillo continued to roll in his quarterfinal match (13-2) and semifinal contest (14-6). In the final, Murillo was matched against Pennsylvania’s Gavin Teasdale. Teasdale defeated Murillo 14-4, leaving the Southington wrestler a second-place finish. “It’s too good to be true,” Southington wrestling coach Derek Dion said. “There are two legitimate national tournaments every year and this is one of them. The best guys in the country wrestle in Fargo. Zac wrestled out of his mind. Not many Connecticut wrestlers have been finalists out there. It’s pretty cool to see him go out there and do so well.” Murillo’s Southington teammate Zachary Bylykbashi also competed in Fargo. Murillo, younger brother of former State Open champ Luis Murillo of Platt, prepared for Fargo since April. He trained three days a week, three hours a day at KT Kidz Wrestling Club in Rocky Hill under coach John Knapp. “Freestyle is very different from high school wresting,” Murillo said. “It rewards high-paced action.

Library expansion on back burner By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Southington Library Director Sue Smayda has been working with architects for the past year on remodeling and expansion plans. She’d hoped to get permission from the Town Council to apply for $1 million in state Public Library Construction Grants, but the council decided not to pursue the money this year because other projects took precedence. Although Smayda didn’t get the go-ahead, she still hopes to continue to work on plans with architects, in order to be ready to apply in the future. “We will continue to move

“I’m hoping he will be a full 100 pounds next year,” Dion said. “He’s been this good for a long time. People just don’t know it because he gives up so much weight. For him to still place at LLs last year was a great accomplishment.” Murillo said he will weigh 100 pounds for the high school season. Murillo said

forward and hope that, maybe next year, we can,” Smayda said. “The money from the state is available next year. We won’t abandon our plans, but I’m disappointed it won’t go through this year.” At a Town Council meeting last week, Library Board Chairwoman Mary Ellen D’Angelo read a letter from Smayda asking the council to add the library’s request for a grant to the agenda for the next meeting. Council Chairman John Dobbins said Monday that it was “unlikely” that the library’s request would make it to next week’s agenda. He said many large infrastructure projects are underway

he will also be out to Fargo again next year wrestling at an older age group. “Next year I’ll move on from the cadet to the junior division. It’s going to be a lot tougher, but I will be ready for the challenge,” Murillo said. “It’s a jaw-dropping experience. There are 23 mats in a football stadium. Last year I was awestruck. It’s unbelievable competition out there. They are all studs. I loved it.”

Smayda said, and would eliminate only a few parking spaces. Because the bookshelves are too close together, the library is not compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act, Smayda said, another reason it needs to be updated. “This is what the community has come to me saying we need,” Smayda said. “We’re acting on that and do need a bigger, better library. We are a great library with wonderful staff and receive terrific comments, but the potential could be much greater.” For the past five years, the grant from the state library has only been awarded to distressed municipalities, so Southington was unable to apply. This year the grant is available to all towns. The grant process is competitive, Tom Newman, the construction grants admin-

in town, including $11 million in road improvements and $89.7 million in middle school renovations. The timing of those, and an upcoming project upgrading the sewer system, would make the library work a “difficult and challenging thing to do.” “It’s an unfortunate thing and all these projects are good and worthy, but again it’s priorities,” Dobbins said. Last year, the library was awarded $30,000 to hire architects to come up with potential designs. Smayda has been working closely with Tai Soo Kim Partners, of Hartford. The plans include expanding the children’s library and creating three meeting rooms for presentations, community use and private organizations. One room would hold about 100 people, the others 30 to 40. Expansions would extend into the library’s smaller parking lot,

istrator for the Connecticut State Library, said. “We rank them based on the application itself and also based on other number of factors, including the wealth of the town, how old their library is and things like that,” Newman said. “We’re expecting quite a few applications this year.” Each year, the state library distributes $3 million to $4 million to libraries across the state for construction. The grant has been around for 20 years. Dobbins said upgrading the library building is part of the capital improvement plan, but “is several years out.” “Is it something that is needed and on the capital improvement plan? Yes,” Dobbins said. “The architect’s design is just about complete, so we will have beautiful designs to talk about to the public and hopefully try again next year,” Smayda said.
