Residents speak out about budget

Dancers take home trophies

By Zachary Janowski The Southington Citizen

Students at Center Stage Entertainment, located in Southington, Plantsville and Hamden, won four high gold and two platinum awards at the Step Up 2 Dance competition in Rocky Hill for their hip-hop and break dance numbers.

A couple hundred residents turned out Monday night for a public hearing on the proposed town and school budget, but they let less than 20 residents do all the talking. Board of Finance chairman Wayne Stanforth said the expected 5.8 percent increase in property taxes is “too large.” He said he wanted to hear from residents “what items can be cut and postponed” and what can’t be cut or postponed. The budget includes $45 million for town expenses,

including $6.6 million in debt service, and $80 million for education. To fund the proposed budget, the mill rate would rise 1.37 to 24.64, a 5.8 percent increase. If this tax increase is approved, the owner of a home assessed at $200,000 would pay an additional $274 in taxes. The proposed general government budget rose 6.1 percent over last year and the education budget went up 5.25 percent. The combined, $125 million budget would represent a 5.55 percent increase.

Congressman helps residents make sense of health care law By Zachary Janowski The Southington Citizen

U.S. Rep. John Larson, D1st, came to Southington last week to sell residents on the benefits of the recently passed health care law that has captured the nation’s political attention — both positive and negative. Larson’s appearance at the Calendar House did not escape the controversy found elsewhere, with at least three

Inside Calendar .........................14 Faith ................................12 Health..............................49 Marketplace ....................53 Obituaries........................13 Opinion............................22 Real Estate .....................52 Seniors............................18 Sports..............................33

members of the small crowd asking critical questions about the process and outcome of the legislation. “With the passage of the bill I thought it was important to get around,” Larson said before listing the benefits of the bill. He said presidents have been trying to pass this kind of law for more than 100 years. He said the bill would address the 47 million Americans who don’t have insurance. “Well, they do. We just call it the emergency room,” he explained. He said the costs of the uninsured going to emergency room are passed on to other Americans. Larson said the costs keep “skyrocketing” and affect the economy as a whole. He said the new law will cover an additional 32 million Americans, increasing the number of insured to 94

percent of the population. In the First Congressional District, Larson said: — 118,000 Medicare beneficiaries will receive better coverage — 16,500 uninsured residents will be covered — 50,000 young adults will be able to remain on their parents’ insurance policy — 7,200 residents with preexisting conditions will be able to get insurance — Uncompensated care for hospitals will fall by $23 million “Nothing with Medicare is going to change except it is going to improve,” Larson said. He said Medicare Advantage will remain in place and the only change will be that providers receive less money from the government. He said Medicare Advantage plans shouldn’t change when

Volleyball game nets gift for Southington Education Foundation

Kelley Elementary School staff and students raised nearly $400 for the Southington Education Foundation at a recent volleyball game that pitted fifth-grade students against their teachers. “It was a great, not to mention historic, day because it was the first time the students beat the teachers and let me tell you my daughter still can’t stop talking about it,” said Kelley Nolan-Maccione, a Kelley School parent and member of the SEF board of directors. The student vs. teacher showdown is an annual event at Kelley School and is always used as a fundraiser for

Photos courtesy of the Southington Education Foundation

A staff against student volleyball game attracted avid fans and raised almost $400 for the Southington Education Foundation. various local and global charities. This year, physical education teacher Eric Korp, who coordinates the event and coaches the fifth graders in basic volleyball skills in after-school sessions, suggested the Southington Education Foundation as the recipient for students’ donations.

A bucket outside the gym yielded pocketfuls of change (and a couple of Chucky Cheese tokens) from the stu-

dents, who pitched their pennies and other coins as they made their way inside the gym. Students cheered on their elder peers and their favorite teachers during the enthusiastic event, which also attracted many parents and grandparents. The Southington Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to enriching the minds and lives of the town’s most impressionable community members – its school students – through support of

innovative and creative initiatives that expand upon existing educational opportunities. The SEF recently awarded its first round of mini grants for a variety of projects and endeavors at schools throughout the district. Applications are currently being accepted for another round of $500 mini grants. To learn more about the SEF, visit southingtoneducationfoundation.org. — Southington Education Foundation

Friday, April 9, 2010 — The Southington Citizen

Chamber looks to help residents bounce back from disaster By Joe Mayo Special to The Citizen

Each year thousands of people die in house fires. Furthermore, tens of thousands of people are injured. These fires are caused by anything from smoking, kids playing with matches, candles, heating, cooking and electrical problems. Although smoke alarms have been around for over two decades, house fires remain a large risk to all home owners. Most people think that something so devastating couldn’t happen, but when it happens to them, they’re

lost. After the realization of the disaster sets in, the homeowners don’t know where to begin to look for help. In 2009, Southington had approximately 10 reported house fires. In four of them the homes were completely destroyed. Soon after the flames are put out, the owners of the homes destroyed are left with nothing. A house holds items that can take a lifetime to collect, whether it be financial paper work, family documents, passports and money — all essential items needed for everyday life. To aid Southington fami-

lies, the Greater Southington Chamber of Commerce is providing support and guidance needed to replace a lifetime of hard work. The program is designed to assist the families who have lost their homes. The chamber disaster relief program helps ensure the immediate necessities such as food, shelter and clothing are available to the victims. Businesses have donated gift certificates that will be given out to whoever is in need. Top’s Supermarket, along with Anthony Jack’s, Jiffy Lube, Comfort Suites and the Southington YMCA have all donated in support

of the Chamber Disaster Relief. “I’m a Southington school teacher and at 3:05 I got a call from the office that I had an emergency call from the central office. My neighbor had called saying that my house was on fire,” said Dan Murdzek, who on Dec. 12, 2007, lost his entire house. “Everything was brought down to the foundation,” Murdzek added. Although Murdzek was back into a house within about a year, the struggles still haunt him to this day. He explained how he is still dealing with some insurance

problems. “You never really get everything back to normal,” he said. For the families living in Southington, the Chamber of Commerce plans to make the unfortunate cases better so that families won’t have to live from hotel to hotel. This program will greatly help these families get their lives back on track and back to a more normal state, or at least as close to normal as possible. For anyone interested in donating to this program, please contact The Greater Southington Chamber of Commerce at (860) 628-8036

Friday, April 9, 2010 — The Southington Citizen

Part two: On the road to perfection with the UConn Women By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen After a dominating showing in Norfolk, Va., it was off to the Midwest for the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. While these middle two rounds of the tournament represent moments of triumph for many teams, for the University of Connecticut, once again, it was just like any game back in November or December or January…well, you get the point. Dayton, in similar spirit to Norfolk, which housed some of the biggest battle ships this country has to of-

fer, is home to the Air Force Museum, representing some our countries greatest air/space machines. It seems less than coincidental and more so appropriate and poetic that UConn simply flew right past the competition in Dayton with a 74-36 win in the Sweet 16 against Iowa State, erasing any past memories of Sweet 16 losses to the Cyclones; then, they dispatched Florida State, to put it nicely, 9050. Florida State, playing in its first ever Elite 8, was just happy to be there, dumping water on their coach after

their Sweet 16 win, signifying that they knew they had made it pretty much as far as they’d go, at least this season. From Dayton it was off to the Huskies’ third straight Final Four. What to say about Dayton? Not too much except there is a reason they host NCAA tournament games so often – they do a good job of playing to the audience and the fans come out in droves.

For a trio of games, two on Sunday and one Tuesday, that lacked much drama or any team from the surrounding states, Dayton drew well and women’s basketball had support. And while UConn always finds fans wherever it goes, the group certainly seemed larger and more devoted in Dayton. Thumbs up to Dayton for hosting, a thumb slightly pointed sideways to the city, for having, well, less

than a stellar atmosphere outside the arena. The common statement was, “Well, it’s pretty much what you’d expect from Dayton.” That couldn’t be truer of the city and even more so, it was a perfect representation of the two games UConn played. They were, well “What you’d expect;” two more stellar UConn women beat downs. San Antonio, here we come.

Real cuts needed

To the editor: The state budget crisis will only get resolved by real cuts. Last week Governor Rell claims to have implemented a deficit reduction plan and “cut” the budget shortfall. Nothing could be further from the truth. Of the $157 million she claims to have cut, $100 million is de-

laying a required payment to the State Employee Retirement Fund. This move solves nothing and is short-sighted for two reasons: First, our next four Connecticut budgets are projected to bring in significantly less revenue than this year due to the economy. If we couldn’t make the required payment this year, how in the world will we make it in the future? Secondly, the State Employees’ Retirement Fund is estimated to be under funded by $8 billion. To put that into perspective, we would need to put an extra $100 million (in addition to the required payment) into the fund for 80 years to make up the projected shortfall. In 2090 Connecticut taxpayers and my great-grandchildren should not be left with such a mess. I wish I had been given the

opportunity to vote against this plan. We need real sustainable budget cuts, not April fools jokes. State Rep. John “Corky” Mazurek, D-Wolcott

Commentary Jobs bill seeks to provide business innovation and entrepreneurship By Bruce “Zeke” Zalaski Special to The Citizen The Commerce Committee, a panel where I serve as vice-chairman, recently held a public hearing on an important bill that hopefully will help jump-start job creation in the state at a time when Connecticut continues to struggle with unemployment. The bill (HB 5435) is an outgrowth of great work undertaken by House Majority Leader Denise Merrill, DStorrs, and Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney, DNew Haven. The two leaders earlier this year created the Majority Leaders’ Job Growth Roundtable comprised of lawmakers, academics, economists, labor and business leaders and venture capitalists. The mission of the roundtable was to evaluate strategies to facilitate job growth and strengthen the state’s economy. The legislation has considerable merit and represents a blueprint for economic recovery. Here are the major recommendations that are included in the bill which has been welcomed in the legislature. Among the key recommendations: — Invest at all stages of business growth, utilizing bonding, investor tax credits, state pension funds and private equity funds — Reinvigorate industry clusters — Provide export assistance to companies — Realign selected tax credits — Create a more seamless, easily accessed government process — Invest in mass transit — Incent energy efficiencies and green energy job creation — Educate a workforce for in-demand jobs

Invest in all stages of business growth Using bonding, create an annual fund in the range of $12 million to support preseed/proof of concepts – separate from seed and earlystage funding sources, to provide technical or incubator or mentoring services to high-potential entrepreneurs with ideas in the initial stage of development. Create an Angel Investor Tax Credit program in the range of $7 million to $10 million to leverage private investments by building new angel investment networks in CT that support start-up companies. Create “side car” funding to leverage angel investor money. Reinvigorate industry clusters Renew support of industry clusters with appropriate funding and evaluate appropriateness of current cluster. Consider development of additional clusters such as health care, green jobs, or creative industry. Invest in a Regional Innovation Cluster Hub and Connector, using state and leveraged federal dollars to build an environment of innovation and entrepreneurship in conjunction with the administration of the pre-seed fund. Export Assistance Expand and improve support for international opportunities to increase business growth as businesses seek new markets abroad for their products. Realign Tax Credits Redirect the existing Insurance Reinvestment Fund tax credits for funds that will invest in emerging and clean technologies and energy innovation. Implement a new, more general job growth tax credit system that promotes quality

Bill Continued from page 22 job growth to take effect in 2010 and end in 2013. Innovation in government Maximize web-based government services. Improve electronic information flow that will facilitate business growth. Provide incentives for regionalization of municipal services. Promote the launch of a “business institute” to promote and foster an ethos of information sharing. Launch a strong initiative to reduce unnecessary paperwork and redundant data collection by the state. Invest in mass transit The report states, “Traffic congestion and the high cost of energy are some of the largest obstacles to business growth in Connecticut. Investment in infrastructure provides both short-term economic stimulus, and longterm competitive advantage. Infrastructure projects create a large number of jobs that generally pay well. They provide public benefits long after they are completed. If properly conceived and executed, they can benefit the environment and reduce energy usage and cost. Invest capital funds in double-tracking the New Haven to Springfield rail line. Invest capital funds in multi-modal transit systems in

the state’s metropolitan areas, to facilitate access between housing and jobs and decrease vehicle miles traveled. Transit reduces costs to workers and companies, and has the positive side benefits of using less energy and reducing the production of carbon and greenhouse gasses. Rebuild and enhance wastewater treatment facilities using Clean Water Fund and federal stimulus dollars. Encourage investment in green infrastructure as a water management strategy. Energy efficiencies and green jobs Provide incentives, using the Clean Energy Fund and other sources, to enhance energy efficiency in the initial construction and rehabilitation of homes and businesses, and to promote distributed generation facilities that use green resources, including fuel cell, solar, hydro, geothermal and wind. Provide incentives for the manufacturing of green energy products. Create a competitive grant program for schools to make energy efficiency improvements. Allow for municipalities to site renewable generation on their buildings that are owned/installed by private entities. Create and support financing mechanisms for residential users to make efficiency improvements. Allow municipalities to do “green bonding.” To promote more efficient

use of existing infrastructure, incent functional collaboration among municipalities. Educate a workforce for in-demand jobs The report states, “To build innovative and entrepreneurial businesses, we need a workforce with the skills and knowledge in areas that are necessary for a competitive edge in the global marketplace.” Enhance early-childhood education. Emphasize science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Prepare every Connecticut high school student to enter 21st Century technical certification and/or apprentice programs, two-or fouryear higher educational institutions, or immediate work opportunities. Develop a workforce to implement new demands for green jobs and energy efficiency programs. Consider a program modeled on Michigan’s No Worker Left Behind legislation, which gives free tuition to community colleges to unemployed workers pursuing high demand occupations. Maximize federal funds available through ARRA TANF Emergency Contingency Fund.

The first baseball batting and fielding cage was built in New Haven in 1885. — Office of Gov. M. Jodi Rell

Boys lacrosse looks to continue to make strides as program builds By Sarah Gomes Special to The Citizen

Prior to the regular season, the Southington High School boys lacrosse team will partake in a collection of scrimmages, a number of which were played over the past weekend at a pre-season tournament, in which head coach Ron Chase saw promise in one particular aspect of the game. “I thought our defense

looked great,” Chase said. “Having lost two of our top four scorers to graduation, we need to continue to find others who are willing to fill those spots.” In regards to the overall play of his squad in this tournament, one individual truly came into his own. “I was very happy to see our goalie, Dylan Platt, step up and take the starting position,” Chase said. “He has been the back-up to Jay Letendre for the past two years and he seems to be really comfortable between

the pipes.” Scores were not kept in the scrimmages throughout this tournament, but according to Chase the group went 1-2-1. The team will open the regular season with Cheshire on April 8 and the Rams look to be a strong test not only for Platt, but also whoever the emerging goalscorers are going to be for the Blue Knights. “Cheshire has one of the best offensive teams in the

New coach brings similar ideals and winning attitude to court By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

With the departure of Tyler Sadowski to graduation, head coach Rich Niro said he doesn’t know yet if on this year’s squad he has the “experience and dedication that Tyler brought to his events.”

Boys track success weighs on ability to replace some big-time talent By Sarah Gomes Special to The Citizen

After a 12th place finish in Class LL last season, the success of the Southington High School boys track team will depend solely on its weakest link. “I’m not quite sure what to expect at the state level this year, a high finish in LL requires only a few athletes who are top performers in their events,” head coach Rich Niro said.

“This year we’ve got a more diverse team, but seem to be lacking those first or second place finishers in events; I suspect our record in conference and dual meets will be better reflected by the ability of our team.” The toughest graduate to overcome will be that of state champion hurdler Chris Kelly. “Chris is the largest hole left to fill,” Niro said. “(He) may be a once-in-a-career talent for me and it’s going to be See Track, page 37

Finishing last year with a state tournament win under their belts and some great talent to look forward to in 2010, the 2009 Southington girls tennis team was on the rise.

Things then took a sad turn when beloved head coach Bob Garry passed away unexpectedly. Yet, with his passing, what he preached was not lost and while first-year head coach Ed Kalat may not be a carbon copy of Garry, he will certainly bring similar ideas to the court and most importantly, he is no stranger to the

Lady Blue Knights. “I got a little bit of experience watching some of the other matches the last four years,” said Kalat, whose daughter, Stephanie, graduated last year and was part of Southington’s top doubles combination. While Kalat has a feel for the team, including the strengths and weaknesses, he admits that as a firstyear coach he hasn’t seen every girl play and is still trying to fully figure out his team. But up to this point, his expectations have surely not been soured. “So far this year I’m very encouraged by what I see in the practice sessions we have,” he said. Interestingly, he is relying on his four senior captains to give him information on the team, since they’ve been around the group longer than he has. “They have more of an insight for the different players on the team,” Kalat explained.

With strong returning core, group on links could be above par By Sarah Gomes Special to The Citizen

After finishing the 2009 season 17 out of 20 teams in Division I, the Southington High boys golf team looks to start off strong on the road against Conard and Northwest Catholic and being away back-to-back right off the bat doesn’t concern head coach Jim DiNello. “Quite honestly, starting out on the road is no big deal,” DiNello said. “We have to play the matches eventually and we won’t be able to get familiar with the surroundings before playing those matches.” The schedule altogether is

Despite Southington’s loss of a key role-player in Jim O’Hara to graduation, the group or returners Jeff Divinere, Dan Baker, Zach Nichols, Jared Degumbia and Kyle Nitz will only benefit the Blue Knights and their chances against the tough competition. “Having (these five) back does mean that we will have players returning with varsity experience,” DiNello said. The group will also keep in mind that Mary Boissonneault is also going to be competing, albeit on the girls side. “Mary returns to make a run at qualifying for a girl’s state tournament appearance,” DiNello said.

that,” DiNello said. “It’s out of my control though, I just hope for nice weather on all the days we play regardless of the venue.” With the christening of the 2010 season comes the beginning of the newly created divisions within boys golf in the Central Connecticut Conference and according to DiNello, their new conference, the CCC West, is something that the Blue Knights will be keeping an eye on. “Competition in our division since re-alignment will be extremely tough,” DiNello said. “Simsbury, Northwest Catholic, Hall, Conard, New Britain, Farmington and Newington return top players.”

state,” Chase said. “We really need to work on putting pressure on their defense so we can have good long possessions that end up with a goal.” The thought that Southington finished eighth in Division L last season, with an early exit during the tournament in an openinground loss on their home pitch doesn’t enter the mind of Chase with regards to what the 2010 team can accomplish. “Every team is different, so you can’t really compare what we did last year to what we might do this year,” Chase said. “We will be taking one game at a time, (but) obviously we are always looking to build on the previous year.” BOYS LACROSSE HEAD COACH: Ron Chase RECORD LAST YEAR: 12-5, 7-2 CCC Division KEY LOSSES: G Jay Letendre, M Dan Mayock, Kyle Casserino and Joe Harvey, attack.

The Southington Citizen — Friday, April 9, 2010

After falling game short, girls lacrosse determined to make postseason run By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

What kind of difference does a year make for a head coach? Just ask the Blue Knights girls lacrosse play-caller Amy Clark. “I came in last year not knowing the girls and not knowing their playing style and this year they know my coaching style and I know they’re playing abilities and I think we’ve started to mesh well as a team,” she explained. In previewing her team for the year, Clark made it appoint to note that a year under her belt has given her a lot more knowledge and insight into her team, allowing her to get ahead of the curve this season and get the girls lacrosse team off and running in hopes of a successful season.

GIRLS LACROSSE HEAD COACH: Amy Clark – second season LAST YEAR’S RECORD: 6-8 KEY LOSSES: Bridget Sheehan, Emily Roach, 2009 allconference McKenzie Angel, Alexis Braziel. KEY RETURNEES: Sr. Hyla Costello (c), 2009 all-conference and top returning player, Sr. Erika Leitao (c), Sr. Jen McGurgan, Sr. Alissa Munoz. KEY NEWCOMERS: Jr. Shannen Corrigan, Jr. Madison Altiwes, Jr. McKenzie Watson, So. Michaela Dean, looking to for offense. KEY GAMES: 4/8 vs. Mercy, 4/13 vs. South Windsor, 4/30 @ Northwest Catholic, 5/25 @ Newington. OUTLOOK: “We have a few strong players coming back with an awful big bunch of juniors that have stepped up from last year. We’re taking it game by game and that’s where we’re at right now.” A 6-8 mark in Clark’s rookie campaign was certainly a good start and save for a couple games, those numbers could have been reversed. This year, the plan is to do just that, reverse the numbers and qualify the team for a state tournament spot. “We lost two games in over-

time last year and we missed the tournament by one game so that was tough on the girls and they know it so we’re going to fight for a tournament bid this year,” Clark said of the team’s overriding goal. “We have a pretty demanding schedule but I think if we work hard and work together, we’ll get to it and hopefully make it into the tournament.” Another point of emphasis in her second season is focusing on team lacrosse, which is something Clark can better teach with the advanced knowledge she has of her players. “One of my bigger goals this year is to have all the girls playing as a team and have a lot of assisted goals, not a whole bunch of fast break scores,” she said. Behind her knowledge of what the team needs to do in

Hyla Costello was the Knights main scoring threat last season. In her senior year, she will look to continue to score and lead the Knights to a state tournament berth. order to improve last year’s record, Clark also realizes that a team is the sum of its parts and it takes individual improvements to improve the total result. “I know they’re strengths and weaknesses which are much easier coaching,” Clark said. “I know what girls need to work on what now and that’s pretty much where we’ve been headed in practice, (individual improvement).” The conference got shook up a little in the offseason, as girls lacrosse went to a CCC North and a CCC South, as opposed to one big conference.

difficult replacing the school record holder in the 300 intermediate hurdles.” The loss of last year’s seniors Evan Rodrigues and Tyler Sadowski will also have an impact on this year’s Blue Knights. “Our jumps team is much thinner this year without Tyler and Evan,” Niro said. “Evan was an athlete who could do everything, he was a jumper and a sprinter, and sometimes a thrower; he was one of those athletes who could help you in a majority of the 17 track events. “I don’t think I have the experience and dedication that Tyler brought to his events, the departure of those seniors has left the largest holes.” After a 15th place finish in the 800-meter dash in last season’s Class LL meet, senior Bryan McGrane will look to make an impression on the CCC as a whole. “Bryan has grown into one of the best mid-distance runners in the conference,” Niro said. “He had a solid winter season and I’m expecting him to win a lot of races this spring. “I’m excited to see what his times look like in the 400- and 800-meter (and) he should anchor both our 4 x 800-meter relay and 4 x 400-meter relay.” Michael Rhodd is another senior this season that saw a 15th place finish at Class LLs last year while competing in the 200-meter dash. “Mike is much stronger this year and with a year of experience under his belt, I expect he’ll be much more comfortable in his events,” Niro said. “He could contribute in half-dozen or more events, but we’re looking for him to score at the conference meet in the high jump, 200-meter dash and potentially the 100meter dash and/or long jump.” Now-senior Jonathan Lewis is the one remaining member left from the 4 x 100meter relay team from last season and Niro believes that whoever the other three are that are paired with him will only feed off his talents. “Jon is a versatile runner

have to look forward to is three of their top four singles players back. Nicole Marziarz likely will move up to the top singles spot, replacing graduated Jen Lehner. She will be followed by sisters Jasmin and Alejandra Gimenez, and then the fourth spot will be determined going into the first match. “We’re looking very strong,” Kalat said. “A lot of repeat players came back that had good results last year.” Marziarz and Jasmin are both senior captains, Alejandra is a sophomore. One issue Kalat pointed to is the loss of two players that would have been key to doubles teams and they are Annette Kaminski and Corinne Horanzy, both out for the season with injuries. “Even regarding that, I think we’re going to have some good results,” Kalat

Friday, April 9, 2010 — The Southington Citizen

Budget Continued from page 1

Law Continued from page 1 the insurance companies are paid $132 billion less over 10 years. He also addressed reports that premiums would rise for many Americans. “Premiums may increase for some people, but your outof-pocket costs are going down,” Larson said, explaining that out-of-pocket costs are what matter to consumers. “The costs needed to be reined in and so does Wall Street and that’s next on the agenda.” Larson said some people tried to use the economy as an excuse not to pass the bill. “For more than 100 years, we’ve been saying, ‘maybe not now,’” he explained. Lorraine Craig, a retired teacher who lives in Southington, said she is “completely disgusted” with the health care bill. Craig per-

sistently questioned Larson on the process and outcome of the legislation. “I have been watching the process closely,” she said. “I have been trying to gain as much information as possible.” “They couldn’t even get consensus among all the members of the Democrat party,” she said, which led to “shifty deals” and “buying votes, in essence.” Larson dismissed Craig’s contention that people are concerned about the process, saying the process began more than 100 years ago. “They’re more concerned about the process of learning their insurance was rescinded on the way to the hospital,” “It’s healthy to have a team that your rooting for,” Larson said. “But at the end of the game, you shake hands.” “In the dissemination of news, people often don’t get both sides,” he added.

Under the town manager’s proposal, the police budget would increase 2.9 percent, fire department 2.5 percent, highway department 0.7 percent, parks department 8.3 percent and public library 2.5 percent. The capital budget would increase 26.6 percent to $2.3 million. In the education budget, the cost of benefits are expected to rise $1.8 million. Benefits combined with an increase of nearly $1 million in special education costs make up most of the $3.6 million increase in the education budget. Teachers will receive no salary increase this year. Administrators and paraprofessionals will receive a 3 percent increase and members of the maintenance, secretaries, custodians and nurses union will receive a 3.75 percent increase. The Town Council will hold a public hearing on the budget approved by the Board of Finance 7 p.m. Monday, April 26, at DePaolo Middle School.

1154098

Board of Education chairman Brian Goralski said the board “100 percent, unanimously endorsed” the school budget. Superintendent Joseph Erardi Jr. said the schools have pursued outside funding for several programs, including breakfast for hungry students. Erardi, among others, said they did not envy the board of finance’s position. “That’s your balancing act: how far can you stretch for tomorrow’s leaders,” Erardi said. He also said the town did not want to eliminate any jobs. “We’re not looking to add to the unemployment in our community,” he explained. “It’s a staggering number that grows every day.” Town Manager John Weichsel echoed Erardi’s concerns. “The idea of laying off people is contrary to what the national government is trying to do,” he said. Weichsel said the capital

budget “with some reluctance” could be a place to look for cuts. About 10 residents, including representatives of several PTOs and two unions, spoke in favor of fully funding the school budget request. “We have cut so much recently that we are on the brink of doing damage,” said Southington High School teacher Bob Brown. Three residents raised specific concerns about taxes increasing too much and the need to cut the budget. Sandra Feld, one of the critics, read a list of expected tax increases in other towns, mostly less than 2 percent. “But we in Southington live somewhere else, in a fantasy land,” she said. “I appeal to the Board of Finance to return us to reality.” The Board of Finance has until April 19 to vote on the budget. The Town Council must adopt a budget by May 10. Then the Board of Finance will set the mill rate by May 17.

Dalton is an artist and teacher from Glastonbury. Daltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic art education and study began with the practice of classical realism in a variety of media. Over the years, along with her many still lifes, landscapes and figure drawings, non-objective abstract painting slowly but strongly became a great motivator in stretching the creative

boundaries. Exhibition opening reception and awards will be held Sunday, April 11, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Artwork may be viewed during normal operations of Gallery 53, 53 Colony St., Meriden. The main floor exhibit space and gift shop is open Thursdays and Fridays, 12 to 4 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sunday 12 to 3 p.m. Contact Gallery 53 at (203) 235-5347 or visit www.gallery53.org for more information. Eligible works and entry information: Original paintings, sculpture, graphics, photography and mixed me-

dia. There is a non-refundable entry fee. Entry tags must be completed with artist signature and attached to the back of the work in the upper left corner. All works must be no larger than 24â&#x20AC;? x 30â&#x20AC;? framed and wired for hanging. No saw tooth hangers. Sculptors must provide their own pedestals. A selfaddressed, stamped envelope must accompany all entries. One envelope per artist. Receiving dates and times: Friday April 2, 12 to 4 p.m. and Saturday, April 3, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. SACA and Gallery 53 will not be held responsible for any loss or damage to any

artwork submitted from any cause whatsoever. The utmost care will be taken in handling all work. Approximately $600.00 in award prizes will be awarded. Honorable mention will be given at the discretion of the judge. For further information, contact chairman Tom Mayer at (860) 628-9104 or tommayer@sbcglobal.net or chairwoman Linda De Luca at (860)621-6552 or foust1@cox.net. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Southington Arts and Crafts Association
