The U.S. Navy Jazz Band Commodores rock the house at the Southington High School auditorium for a fitting performance on Veterans Day. The Southington Kiwanis Club sponsored the event and hopes to host other military bands in the future.

Residents react to accusations against former superintendent By Richie Rathsack Special to The Citizen Board of education members said Monday they were surprised to hear about complaints of sexual harassment against former School Superintendent Harvey B. Polansky, now the head of the Milford school district. Polansky was placed on paid administrative leave Sunday. Milford officials plan to hire an independent agency to investigate the complaints. Polansky could not be reached for comment Mon-

day. Polansky has been the Milford superintendent since March 2007, after spending seven years at the same position in Southington. School board members in Southington, while surprised, were also cautious of making any comments until more facts are known. “It’s too early to have any real comment until the inves-

tigation is complete,” board member David Derynoski said Monday. “I’ve seen in the past there have been allegations for people regarding certain activities, but after the investigation it turned out it was not the case. The standard procedure in any district is to put someone on administrative leave.”

A Southington family joined lead rider Mike Palm for the New Haven stage of the six-state cycling ride to raise awareness and funds for kidney disease research conducted by The NephCure Foundation, which was established in 1999. NephCure is a member of a global consortium of advocacy groups from the United States, England, France, Italy and the Netherlands. Its mission is to find a cure for Nephrotic Syndrome and Focal Segmental Glumerulsclerosis, diseases that effect the kidneys. The event, dubbed the Tour de NephCure, was an open-participation bike ride that took place from Oct. 22 to 31. The ride started at Portland, Maine, and traveled through portions of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and

Rhode Island before ending up in New York City on Oct. 31. Bruce Truax took part in the 60-mile New Haven stage of the ride, in honor of his 14-year-old son Reed, who has kidney disease. “Reed has been impacted by the disease since he was 2 and 1/2 years old,” Truax said, “and he’s been on an almost constant dose of steroids since then. “And these are not the type that builds muscles,” he continued. “They are similar to the immunosuppressant drugs transplant patients take.” Truax’s daughters, Nicole and Morgan, are not impacted by the disease, and Reed’s prognosis is unclear at this time. “It’s difficult to predict just what might happen to a youngster,” Truax said. “Some children outgrow the disease and go into remis-

Schedule no obstacle for this marathoner By Lindsey Caton Special to The Citizen

Cheryl Moran, a resident of Southington, found time to train for the New York City Marathon between balancing her work as a public legal defender and working at two town restaurants, Anthony Jack’s and Bonterra, which she and her husband Barry DePaolo own. Having run the marathon once in 1995, Moran ran it again, but this time for a charity, North Shore Animal League America, which is the largest nokill animal shelter in the world. The marathon starts on Staten Island and runs through all five boroughs of New York City, ending in Central Park at a traditional length of 26.2 miles. Runners are chosen by lottery, but anyone running for charity is automatically accepted.

SHS seniors begin applying to colleges “They all have my major, education,” she said. “I don’t have to travel far, and I also get tuition for UConn,” Heather added with a grin. Charlie Dan Sheffy has his future geared towards either Middlebury College or the University of Vermont. “They are relatively close and are pretty big. I think I’ll be comfortable with these schools and students,” Sheffy said. Danny Baker is also excited for his future at college, applying to Bryant, Fairfield, UConn and Siena College. “I like these schools because of their size and they’re not too far from home. They have competitive academics too, so I think these are the best choice for me,” Baker said. Catherine Marino, a sophomore at Boston University in Massachusetts, recently graduated Southington High School and was quick to get out into the world of college.

When asked which schools he planned to attend, Jason Reider, a senior at Southington High School responded with the University of Connecticut, West Virginia University and Arizona State University. “They all have majors in graphic designs and great programs for it,” Reider explained. Jordan Otero, Southington senior, has definite plans for her college schools. “Let’s see. I’m looking towards St. Micheal’s in Vermont, Catholic University of America in D.C., and Assumption. I want to major in journalism and all of these schools offer journalism programs,” she said. Distance from home is also a factor when deciding between different schools. Heather Pehmoeller, senior, has plans to stay relatively close to her home. Pehmoeller said her top choices are UConn, University of Rhode Island and Central Connecticut State University.

College: a word that has both parents and students cringing at their future and what will happen. Many questions arise; what schools have the majors I’m looking at? Do I want to go to a school far away or somewhere close to home? How many kids am I comfortable being around? There are many important factors when deciding which colleges require your immediate attention, while others may not be a good fit. Everybody is different, and therefore they have different preferences and needs for applying to colleges. Whether it is different studies and majors, or the number of students that affect your school decision, everyone has their own plan. Southington High School is home to hundreds of seniors, proving the diversity of people’s college decisions. Some students are selective in schools by majors.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, November 20, 2009

Goats can stay despite threats - maybe By Leslie Hutchison Special to The Citizen

The glory days of the goats will go on, owner Daniel True said Friday, Nov. 13. He believes he’ll be able to keep his small herd on his property on Prospect Street. “They got a stay of execution,” True said. True was told by the town last month that he had to get rid of his herd because his property is too small to keep farm animals. Now he believes the support of the public has helped him turn the tide. “At first, I couldn’t sleep

at night. Now it’s better,” True said. A petition asking the town to allow the goats to remain contains more than 150 signatures, True said. “People were coming by the house asking to sign it,” he said. “I’m surprised by the support and the turnout of the people from Southington.” The town’s zoning regulations state that three acres or more of property is required to raise farm animals. True’s property at the intersection with Mount Vernon Road is about half an acre. He’s had the goats since 1997 and said

the time. She grabbed a piece of notebook paper and hit the streets. “Mommy said it’s called a petition,” Pettit said. The youngster gathered more than 50 signatures. “I said, ‘Hello, I made a petition to save the goat farm,’” Pettit said she told her neighbors. “They said, ‘Oh, that’s sad, I’ll sign,’” she added. A business owner on Clark Street felt so strongly about the goats, he put up a big sign, True said. “It says, ‘Save the Goats.’” True said people blow their horn in support when they drive by his house. “I get thumbs up

the corner lot has been a pasture since 1926. The story of the goats’ predicament got so much attention, True said, that nearly 60 people came to see them last Sunday. A normal crowd is more like 25 people. “People from Cheshire came so they could talk to me. They said they hope the goats don’t have to go.” When 5-year-old Emelia Pettit of Southington heard about the possible departure of the goats, she came up with a plan. “Let’s make a bunch of people help save the goat farm,” Pettit said at

from them.” Town Attorney Mark Sciota said he has a meeting scheduled next week with True. “We’ll discuss the whole issue,” he said. Sciota declined to provide any more information about the matter. Zoning Enforcement Officer Frank Vinci said he couldn’t comment on whether True will be allowed to keep his goats. However, True believes his property will be “grandfathered in” to allow him to keep the herd. True’s corner lot is what’s left of the 78-acre Hubeny Farm, which has been divided and turned into a residential neighborhood. “I’ve got my fingers crossed,” True said. “I hope all goes well.”

Inclement weather on Oct. 27 forced the cancellation of one portion of the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCA’s annual potluck lunch and Rails to Trails walk, but it did little to suppress the energy and supportive spirit of the members of the Y’s Women’s Health and Wellness Center who attended the potluck portion of the event, and brought mostly home-cooked goodies with them in spite of the cold and wet day. Michele Boisvert, the manager of the center, coordinated the event, which was scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. “This is our third potluck lunch and trail walk,” she said, “but since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, we decided to dedicate this one to help raise awareness of the cause

within our small community, so that people won’t forget how important it is to continue to fight to eradicate the disease and support those affected by it. “Quite a few women here have been personally affected by breast cancer, either directly or by knowing someone that has had the disease either in their family or a friend,” she continued. “When they come here, they spend time talking about their treatments and diagnosis, and how important exercise has been to them. So we felt it was important to let them know we are with them as they continue to either fight the disease, or support someone they know that has been impacted by it,” Boisvert said. About 15 women’s center members showed up during the 90-minute event, and enjoyed a meal featuring such selections as lasagna and chili, along with potato sal-

Kayla Reed, left, and Michayla Turner, right, members of Brownie troop 60518 from Thalberg Elementary help the Boy Scouts distribute collection bags and sort food.

Boy Scout food drive The annual Boy Scout food drive was held Nov. 14 and raised over 9,000 pounds of food which will be distributed to needy families in the community through Southington Community Services. Local Boy Scout and Brownie troops picked up donated items at individual residences and brought them to the First Baptist Church where more scouts, Bread for Life board members and volunteers sorted and boxed the donations. More volunteers worked at the warehouse and pantry to unload and store the boxes for future use. Eldon Hafford, executive director of Bread for Life, stated, “It touches my heart and raises my spirits every year that this drive is held.

The scouts, brownies, family members, friends and volunteers work very hard so that needy members in our community can get the supplies they so desperately need. In spite of the bad weather, this year’s drive was a huge success.” “We at Bread for Life would like to extend our thanks to all the volunteers, Brownies, Boy Scouts and their families and friends who worked so hard to collect, deliver and sort food items,” stated Bill McDougall, chairman. “The items collected will be used to stock the shelves of the pantry and to supplement the Thanksgiving baskets we will begin to assemble next week. What a wonderful way to involve our youth in help-

Killian, General Manager

The recent municipal election resulted in one of the most unexpected endings to a political campaign Kyle Southington has seen in many a year. Not only did the town’s Republicans end up in control of every board up for grabs in the election, but some familiar faces on many of the boards were ousted, their places being taken by political neophytes, many of who have no experience in town government, or, at best, experience in serving on a board or commission they were not running for. I’m sure people much smarter and more experienced in all things political than I am will be spending a lot of time trying to figure out just what happened, but I have my opinion. I suspect the phrase, “It’s time for a change,” is probably just as good an explanation as any other, with the caveat that it goes much deeper than that. There is no doubt that we are living in bad times. The national unemployment rate now stands above 10 percent, and people who are going to pantries seeking food were bringing food to them last year. Prices, taxes and fees are all going up, wars continue and in some cases expand, and, in spite of, or perhaps because of the actions of our federal government and the politicians that make it up, I think people believe it will be a long time, and perhaps never, before things get better. Because the changes have been so negative, and no help seems to be in sight, I think people are feeling hopeless and helpless, and they are looking for something to do to express that. I

think we all felt like Benjamin Franklin apparently felt in 1736, when he gave an endorsement to change by writing in Poor Richard’s Almanac that “fish and visitors smell in three days.” This was the first time since the last presidential election, and all the promised changes for the better that came with it, that voters had a chance to express their feelings, and, unfortunately, they showered their discontent and helplessness onto the shoulders of local officials, even though they had no part in creating the national crisis that faces our country. While this opinion does not explain why some candidates lost and others won, I think it does clarify the mood of the electorate and give some valid reasoning why the election produced the results it did. On the lighter side, in spite of what you read in the papers, see on TV or on the Web, I can positively lay to rest the rumor that the “Men Who Stare at Goats” work on the second floor of Southington Town Hall. I do believe that tale was probably started by one of the men who work there, however. This person is telling everyone that he looks just like George Clooney, and, because of recent happenings, people put two and two together and came up with a connection between Clooney, goats and Southington. Speaking of the goats, it looks like they will be allowed to stay at their Prospect Street home in spite of the fact they technically are forbidden by town zoning regulations. But the jury is still out on efforts to prevent something that is authorized by those same regulations from taking place. — Harry Kyle

Inquiring Photographer What part of the Thanksgiving meal do you like the best? Compiled by Harry Kyle

I cook the turkey myself each year and I have an old cookbook and it has an old recipe for cooking a turkey that has maple syrup in it, and that’s what I use. It’s so good. I enjoy cooking the turkey and I enjoy eating it as well. Kate Budnik Southington

I enjoy the desserts. My mother-in-law makes five different pies for the meal, and I have to leave room for to try a little bit of each one. I like apple pie, but I also make it a point to try the other four as well. Christine Potter Plantsville

I’m a pumpkin pie kind of guy, especially if it has a lot of whipped cream on it. I’ll eat any kind of pumpkin pie that’s placed in front of me, but I love my wife’s pie the best. Tom Gorr Southington

I like everything in the meal, so it’s a difficult choice to make. But if I had to make a choice, it would be the turkey with the gravy. The one thing I do like about Thanksgiving is that everything in the meal is homemade. Loretta Violette Southington

I love my mom’s stuffing recipe, and I try to get as much stuffing as I can. But what I really go for is the desserts. I’m an ice cream addict, and I love anything chocolate, so any dessert that combines the two is what I go after. Amy Fleischmann Plantsville

Commentary

Thanks-Giving By E. Richard Fortunato Special to The Citizen I don’t know if you have any plans next Fortunato Tuesday evening, Nov. 24, but, as in many past years, (too many years for most of us to count exactly), residents of our community of diverse faith traditions will gather together under one roof to give thanks and praise to God for the abundant blessings we collectively enjoy. Hosted in different houses of worship each year, this year’s interfaith Thanksgiving service will be celebrated at the First Lutheran Church, 232 Bristol St. The service starts at 7:30 p.m. and all are invited. For many who attend, this is a

special occasion, bringing to mind that Thanksgiving has been a tradition in our country since the time the pilgrims of Massachusetts gathered with native Americans to express their mutual gratitude for the harvested bounty of the Great Spirit. Beyond their mutual gratitude was the enlightening sharing of the cultures of these very different people. Now, hopefully, please, I won’t be challenged on the accuracy of that beautiful legend of my childhood, the facts of which continue to be deliberated by exuberantly diligent historians. The point is that particularly in today’s increasingly smaller and closer world, we have an opportunity to thank God for our lives as Americans living in a wonderful New England suburb. It’s an opportunity to take a town-wide time-out, to pray together as a faith-filled assembly of Jewish, Catholic,

Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Congregational, United Church of Christ, Baptist, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Sikh, Baha’i and others of good will. Think about it. Once a year, we may sit in God’s house, flanked and surrounded by friends and associates of many faiths as we worship, pray, sing, praise and thank God for the gifts of life we cherish. But wait. How can we in good conscience give thanks together and two days later gather with our families to enjoy the traditional sumptuous Thursday feast of the year without thinking of those in our midst who have so much less! So the Interfaith Clergy Association of Southington suggests we consider bringing one nonperishable food item with us or make a free-

Letters to the Editor Help the E.L.F. To the editor: As you maybe aware, the Connecticut Army National Guard will be deploying nearly 700 service members in the month of November to mobilization training stations in Indiana and Wisconsin. Over the Christmas holiday, the mobilization stations will cease training and the service members will be permitted to travel home. However, it is not permissible to use federal or state money to provide transportation for these men and women to return home to be with their families. These deployments affect 132 of the 169 towns and cities in the state. The Connecticut National Guard Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization trying to raise funds through Operation E.L.F. to bring these service members

home so that they can be together before their departure overseas. Donations can be sent to: Connecticut National Guard Foundation, Inc., 360 Broad Street, Box 53, Hartford, CT 06105-3795. Checks should be made payable to: “CTNGFI” and in the memo section, please write “Operation E.L.F.” Credit card donations are also accepted. Please contact the Operation E.L.F hotline at (860) 524-4924 or the Family Program Office at 1-800-858-2677 for a credit card donation form. The Web site is www.ctngfoundation.org. Thank you for considering this request. Richard Miller Berlin

$1,000 scared up To the editor: We would like to thank

everyone who supported us again this year through Spooky Kingdom. Your generosity and kindred Spirit (of a Halloween nature) allowed us to raise $1,000 for the Connecticut Alzheimer’s Association. A special thank you to Rogers Orchards for their generous donation of delicious apple cider for our event, which everyone enjoyed. To Aziagos for their donation of the cider dispensers which kept the cider warm and yummy. To Home Depot for donating some money towards the materials we used to build some of our hauntingly good attractions. Southington is full of really great people and we’re so proud to be a part of this wonderful community! Bonnie Burke and family Plantsville

greater results. “This year, because of the devastating economic climate, more and more Southington residents require our assistance. We have seen the need for supplemental groceries increase by over 300 percent in just one year.

and people if the weather was better. I think a lot of women felt that the event was cancelled because of the rain and cold temperatures. “We also had to wait a while for the lasagna to show up.” Boisvert said some of the women were sorry that the walk had to be cancelled, being they enjoy it. “We have had people walk the entire four-mile route from High Street to Plantsville, along with any distance in between,” she said. “The women here are incredibly supportive of each other, no matter what unique struggles an individual is facing. They’re not afraid to talk, which probably is a good thing. “This lunch has definitely become a part of the women’s center, and it is something we all look forward to doing.” Donna Menard has participated in the event in the past. She said, “We leave a sheet at the entrance to the women’s center, and people can sign up so we all know how many are coming and what they’ll be bringing. We did have fewer people this year than we’ve had in the past, and I think the weather had a lot to do with that. “I think dedicating this year’s lunch to breast cancer awareness was a good idea,” Menard said, “and I really enjoyed it. It definitely was in keeping with the supportive spirit we have in our group.” Another potluck-er, Nancy

Dobrindt, said, “The lunch is a nice get-together. The Y encourages us to exercise and be healthy, and this affair is a good incentive to participate in that goal and be encouraging and supportive. “We have a gal here that has multiple sclerosis, and whenever we walk the trail, there are always a couple of women that walk with her and help her out.”

Thanks Continued from page 19 will monetary donation for those who are poor, hungry or find themselves in challenging economic straits this year. The gifts and donations collected will be allocated to Bread for Life, Southington Community Services and the Manna Fund according to their needs. Now, if you think you don’t know anyone who will be at this grateful gathering at the First Lutheran Church, come and find out otherwise, and after a post-

service reception, leave with an uplifted heart. Today, this column opens a new opportunity for me to begin sharing a fresh view of Southington with you. Fifteen years ago, I began a personal journey of retirement in a community that was completely new to my wife and me. In the decade and a half that has passed, I have been privileged to cross paths with a multitude of people I have encountered in a retirement career of church and community service. The most remarkable aspect of this experience has been to learn the stories of these largely unheralded, or-

dinary people doing extraordinary things from within the charitable, service and fraternal organizations of their preference and their diverse local faith congregations. The number of these mostly unassuming heroes is countless. Their compensation is the sheer joy of giving, being there for someone else, often anonymously. I have discovered these folks to be special points of light and hope in our community. So, I plan to be back soon, telling the stories of these hearts and souls of Southington.

Life should be measured not in years but — in moments.

Tour Continued from page 1 sion, while others may require kidney transplant. So we just don’t know yet.” Thursday’s ride started at Fort Hale Park in East Haven at 9 a.m., and ended on the Yale University campus that afternoon, after a 60-mile loop around New Haven. “It was an enjoyable bike ride on a beautiful day,” Truax said. “The pace was nice and leisurely, and it took me about seven hours to complete the loop, including lunch.” “About 12 riders took part in the ride. Four of them rode about 10 miles, while the rest of us completed the 60-mile loop. But we all have someone we know that is impacted by nephrotic syndrome,” Truax said. Local attorney Joe Crispino also took part in the ride to support Truax. He said, “This was a very wellrun fundraiser, and the people involved were very friendly and enthusiastic. In this day and age, competition for any type of fundraising dol-

lars is pretty stiff, and this is a cause that is not well known, but Bruce is a friend, and his son has the disease, so I just wanted to do what I could to help out. “Besides, any effort aimed at helping children is a worthy one,” Crispino said. Truax is an active bike rider, usually peddling about 2,500 miles per year, mostly around the Southington area. He said the longest ride he’s been involved in was a 250mile, three-day round trip from Middletown to Newport, R.I. and back. “I was pretty beat up after that one,” he said. “It was 95 degrees on the day we came back home, and I think I had some heatstroke problems on the way back. I had to stop and cool off a couple of times. I thought I was a lot tougher then, but I also was a lot younger.” Truax estimates he raised about $1,200 for the foundation because of his ride, and said, “If they have another one, I’ll surely participate in it. I want to do all that I can to help fund the good work of the foundation.” For more information, visit www.NephCure.org.

Knight spikers closing in on ultimate goal

At left, the Southington girls volleyball team celebrates an important point in the Knights’ victory over Newtown in the semifinals. Above, Lexi Broytman and Tori Munson go up for the block. By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen At our Wednesday press deadline, things were looking awfully cheery for Southington girls volleyball. They were two wins into the state tournament and pending yesterday’s result, possibly one win from a state title. But the way they opened the tournament had the subtle makings of a team in a good mindset and with the focus to do some special things. With head coach Rich Heitz slowly placing his little touches of coaching genius into the pot, the final formula was sure to come out a nice brew. It started with a win against Cheshire, in which it took Southington four games to dispatch the Rams. “Sometimes when you have a bye, it’s a little tough, and Cheshire had a game on Monday,”

Heitz said of dropping a game to Cheshire. They dropped game two, but tied at one game apiece, responded well and took the next two games for the match victory. “I was happy with the way we played in the third and fourth games,” Heitz said. After the win, going into a tough matchup against Newtown, Heitz was happy with the way his team played and the game two loss may have even benefited the team’s psyche a little. “You’re going to have those first game jitters and I think that’s what we saw tonight.” However, when the Newtown game started, those jitters made a recurring appearance, playing a big role in the opening game in the Southington gym, as the Nighthawks won, 25-18. A main reason, was one of the state’s top hitters, Megan Casey, who finished the match with 21 kills. “We had some unforced errors, but we haven’t seen a hitter like Megan Casey this year,” Heitz

said of the stumble in game one. Heitz also said that his team had to find the holes in the Newtown defense because it “was the toughest serve receive (they’ve) had to face all year long,” that had two great receivers including Casey and libero Abby Doski. Also, with a tricky Newtown team, Heitz said his team “struggled blocking.” What Southington did do in taking the next three games was take advantage of a soft serve receive while Rachel Volpe and Elsie Berniache were serving, as well as look to the strong play, as of late, from Natasha Carlbert. “Natasha gave us that momentum,” Heitz said. “She played very well tonight.” The win, however, and facing a tough hitter in Casey, was beneficial, explained Heitz, going into yesterday’s bout with Norwich Free Academy, one

The Southington Citizen — Friday, November 20, 2009

Boys soccer can’t take advantage of second chance By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

“As cliche as it sounds, it wasn’t our day,” Blue Knights boys soccer head coach Dave Yanosy said after their loss last Thursday to No. 8 seed Fairfield Prep. In that game, the Southington Blue Knights vastly outplayed Prep, but as is life in soccer, came out on the wrong end of the score. However, this time, they actually got rewarded for their efforts. John Monroe, one of the Jesuit defenders, was not supposed to be playing. After receiving two yellow cards in their opening round win against E.O. Smith, by CIAC rule, Monroe had to miss a game. However, he was penciled into the starting lineup, immediately disqualifying him from the game. This fact was brought to the coach’s attention and action was taken after the 1-0 loss. A forfeit was given to Southington, moving them into the quarterfinals for the second straight season. The irony is, Monroe, along with Southington’s Joe Gianatti, received red cards in the second round game after an altercation. Monroe was ejected at the 38th minute anyways, as was Gianatti. Still, it was a game Southington felt no remorse about getting a forfeit because of the way they worked in the game. “I’m really proud of the effort they put forth,” Yanosy said after the Prep loss. “We certainly, my God, had a boatload of opportunities that we just didn’t cash in on.” However, losing Gianatti was still an issue for Southington entering their contest against top seed and undefeated Glastonbury. “I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say it hurt,

because it did,” Yanosy said about not having Gianatti for the second half of the Prep game. “Joe has a knack for being the guy who scores the big goal.” Gianatti was sidelined against Glastonbury, who handled Southington, winning 3-0, ending the Blue Knights year. “Glastonbury is a very good team,” Yanosy said. “They are well-coached and they certainly gave us all we could handle today.” Still, reflecting on the year, Yanosy could not be happier with the way his group played. “Coming in, especially going into a new league, we didn’t really know what to expect,” Yanosy explained, “for the seniors, even though things didn’t go their way today, (against Glastonbury), they certainly can hold their heads high. “Going 11-6-2 and making it to the quarterfinals for the second straight year is quite an accomplishment.” A scrappy group of 11 seniors spearheaded another successful year for Southington boys soccer that can be defined in one word: effort. “They were part of a great run last year and a good run this year and they’ve kept things moving in the right direction for Southington soccer,” Yanosy said about his senior group. “I’m proud to say that I was their coach.” “I am extremely proud of the effort my team put forth in this game and throughout the season,” Yanosy reiterated one final time after the Glastonbury loss. Graduating will be Nick Defeo, Pat Conaty, Michael Sheridan, Shane Mosko, Doug Fontaine, Nate Mozian, Zachary Failla, Anthony Longo, Mike Shaughnessy, Dillon Nadeau and Ryan Govoni.

Before Southingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final football game of 2009 at home last Friday against Conard, it had been a season filled with â&#x20AC;&#x153;what ifs.â&#x20AC;? After losing three games, each by a three-point margin, the Blue Knights were a team that looked so good, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach the summit against some fierce competition. They hoped they could summit Everest when they welcomed the undefeated Chieftains last Friday. This time, though, things ended with a lot more than three points separating the teams. Conardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jonathan Esposito was the star of this contest, running and intercepting his way to a Conard victory. He was like the old Chicago voting methods: â&#x20AC;&#x153;early and often,â&#x20AC;? scoring the football, in a 40-20 win. He started things with a 33-yard run, finished the Conard scoring with another 33-yard run, and sandwiched an interception and fumble recovery playing defense in between to be the star of the contest. His final numbers: 42-for-327 on the ground and four scores, a long of 69 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great runner,â&#x20AC;? Southington head coach Bill Mella said of Esposito. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good coming downhill. I think you give an awful lot of credit to the offensive line in getting him a seam and his fullback making sure thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crease.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;His talent coupled with their team effort was great,â&#x20AC;? Mella said of the opponent. It was not Southingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best game. While it totaled 376 yards of total offense, just six less than Conard, they threw three interceptions and also fumbled once. Mella, though, did not attribute the 40-20 defeat to just turnovers, although he agreed they made a big impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can point to one thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly when you turn

the ball over more than you get it back, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win ball games. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as that. From Pee Wee to the NFL, you lose the turnover ratio, you lose ballgames and they capitalized immediately on three of them.â&#x20AC;? Mella was alluding to two interception returns for touchdowns that did in the Blue Knights. Conard, with the win, remained undefeated, 9-0, and ultimately clinched a Class L playoff spot as Southington fell to 5-4. The Chieftains, while a one-man wrecking crew, were successful in doing that and Mella said he expected it from a team coached by Rob Cersosimo, who Mella called an â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolute class act.â&#x20AC;? Southington finishes the year against Cheshire, who sits No. 5 in the Class LL playoff standings. If the Blue Knights could win, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d likely end Cheshireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff hopes, something the Knights would love to accomplish after it was the other way around last season. That game will be in Cheshire, at 10 a.m., Thanksgiving morning. Knights honor seniors Before the Conard game, Southington honored its group of seniors. They are: Matt Cullins, Dylan Danko, Kyle Lentini, Anthony Florian, Nick Pierce, Shawn Smith, Rob Krawczyk, Zachary Etter, Jesse Rodriguez, Jon Kelleher, Tim Sowa, Duwyane Blocker, Casey Sage, K.J.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, November 20, 2009

Snow Views

It’s nearly time for the SHS ski team to start heading to the slopes By Dave Mongillo Special to The Citizen

The Southington High School Ski Team will be back at full strength this season with six racers returning after last season’s battles and adding seven new racers to the mix. Hallie Roberge, the Blue Knights top racer last season, will be back to lead the team in the new battles on the snow. Also returning for another go at the gates will be

team veterans Mike Turner, Allie Minahan, Austin Florian, Alyssa Aligata and Deirdre Hermann. Added back to the team, after taking a season off, are Sarah Caisse and Heather Pehmoeller. “We also have a few new additions to the team, which will bring us up to 14 racers,” says coach Troy Schinkle. “We are going to race as a mixed team again this year to ensure that we can score in every race.” Last year the team didn’t al-

one mixed team and manages to hold its own. Last season Roberge would finish near the top in almost every race, but with only three other girls on the team, Southington had little chance to finish on the podium. On the boys’ course it was the same story. Chris Smedberg, now at the University of Connecticut, would often finish in the top eight, when he stayed upright for two runs, but Florian and Turner had to have great finishes for the Knights to score in the team standings. This season should be different. Florian and Turner are bigger, stronger and more experienced. Even with Smedberg gone, they could be top finishers in most races. With Caisse and Pehmoeller back on the snow, the Southington mixed team could be a force on the course. Only time will tell, but I

expect the Southington High skiers to be the top mixed team at Mount Southington this season. Word from Larry Gianatti, the Southington native who is head coach for the UConn ski team, is all good news. He expects to have one of the strongest teams on the college ski circuit this season. There are several former Mount Southington race team skiers on the new UConn team. In addition to Smedberg, Matt Diamond, Rachel Bisacky and Ben Marcus will race in the blue and white this season. Joining them will be Sondra Martinez one of the top high school racers at the local mountain last season.

They race at Mount Southington once, or sometimes twice a week, from January until mid- March. When the local season is over, the top racers are invited to race in the Eastern High School Championships in New Hampshire. The teams are placed in divisions according to the size of the schools. SHS is in the mid-size division, although they usually have fewer racers than the other mid-size schools. Last season they were one of only four mixed teams in the league. Some of the schools have junior varsity and varsity, boys and girls teams, and bring 50 racers to Mount Southington for every race. Against this armada, Southington brings

Spikers Continued from page 29 of the top team’s in the state along with the Blue Knights. “Kastine Evans from NFA is going to be a similar type player (to Casey) and you’re not going to shut down players like that, you’re just trying to hope to contain their teammates

and don’t let their teammates beat you,” he said going into yesterday’s match. As to what to expect as a team, Heitz said NFA is the same caliber as RHAM and Coventry, two teams that Southington faced differing results against. If the Lady Knights could battle for a win yesterday in East Haven, they’d play the winner of Fairfield Ludlowe and Staples at Berlin High, tomorrow night, at 7 p.m., in the Class LL final.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, November 20, 2009

Polansky Continued from page 1

The agenda for a meeting of the Milford school board

lists an executive session to discuss “matters regarding pending claim - sexual harassment complaint against superintendent.” The Connecticut Post and the New Haven Register reported in Monday’s editions

served 18 months in prison for having sex with a high school student. Southington school board member Rosemarie Micacci Fischer said the Milford accusations were not something she expected to see in the news and was rather surprised because Polansky is regarded as a good superintendent. Board member Kathleen Rickard also said it was surprising and sadden-

that the allegations come from two female school principals in Milford. Polansky replaced former Milford School Superintendent Gregory Firn, who left his post in December 2006 after the Milford school board agreed to buy out his contract for $109,000. Firn was heavily criticized for writing a letter in support of Bob Dulin, a girls basketball coach who later

ing to see a friend in the news this way. “Harvey is a very gregarious man, very friendly and a good person. He hugs everyone he meets,” Rickard said. “I hope there is as much media attention when he is exonerated as there is now with these allegations.” Polansky left Southington after being recruited by the Milford school system, Derynoski said. He said while in Southington, Polansky brought the school system up a level through his hard work. “He was a great superintendent. He was a little firm and a little tough to take at times, because he demanded excellence from everyone,” Derynoski said. “He brought the school district to another level.” The Milford school board on Sunday unanimously approved placing Polansky on leave and naming Assistant Superintendent Michael Cummings as acting superintendent. The board’s attorney was also directed to hire an independent agency to investigate the complaints. While Polansky was superintendent in Southington, the state Department of Children and Families was asked to investigate whether the school district had violated any of the state’s mandatory reporting laws regarding former DePaolo Middle School teacher William McKernan, who was accused of sexual impropriety with a student. DCF found that the district handled the case correctly. When Polansky was hired in Milford, Democrats on the Republican-controlled Milford school board questioned the hire in light of the McKernan issue. Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, November 20, 2009

Moran Continued from page 2

“I turned 40 this year, and I was thinking about something to do. I had a dog I had adopted from this animal charity the same weekend that I ran that first marathon in 1995. And then we had to put her to sleep this year in March. I just thought it was very ironic that here was this animal charity where I had adopted my first dog, Phoebe, and they were raising money for the marathon. With the way the economy is, I know that a lot of not-forprofit organizations and charitable organizations are

really hurting. I’m a very passionate animal person, so it seemed like a perfect kind of thing to do.” According to its Web site, NSALA “is dedicated to saving animals’ lives — not just in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas — but around the world. Our mobile units allow us to travel the country rescuing animals from various different situations,” each year placing nearly 20,000 pets into happy and loving homes. To date, NSALA has rescued close to 1 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. Moran originally pledged to raise $2,500 but has since raised more than $3,000. She said that her family and

friends have been really generous. Moran has been following a training plan to prepare for the marathon. “You basically work your mileage up. I’ve been training probably seriously for about six months.” She said that balancing all the areas of her life is difficult. “I’m in court three or four days a week. There are days when I have to get up and do a long run, and then I have to be in court, and I have to be at the restaurants. It’s tough, but you know what? It’s all good, and there are a lot of people who are not in as good a position as I am. I feel very lucky,” Moran said. “I feel very grateful for what I have. Hopefully, I can kind of give back, and I can help people and help animals, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

For people who say that they could never run a marathon, Moran has this advice: “You can do it. So much of what we try to do in life is mental, and people let that break them down, but anybody can do anything. You really can. If you put in the time, and if you put in the hours and the training, you gradually work yourself up,

College Continued from page 2 She couldn’t be more excited about her future and knows that she found a

school that was a great fit for her. “College is so amazing,” she said, a wide grin spreading across her already cheerful face. “I’ve met so many people and learned so much already.

And there are so many choices, you can do almost anything. “I don’t care what anybody says, go to college. It’s going be one of the best experiences of your life!”
