Southington High’s top three compare rank to ‘icing on the cake’ By Dan Brechlin Special to The Citizen More than 500 students will graduate from Southington High School June 18, but few will receive as much recognition as the top three finishers in the Class of 2010. Valedictorian Taylor Malone, salutatorian Alaina Mulhearn and essayist John Snyder said they are ready to graduate, though their positions are simply an added

bonus. “Finishing in the top three with our GPAs is like icing on the cake,” Snyder said. “The cake is what we got out of it and the GPA is just the icing.” Each student’s “cake” was baked a different way in their make-up of classes, but Snyder said they did not shortchange themselves in terms of classes.

Tabernacle Church strives to make life better for needy By Rabia Hamid Special to The Citizen On Tuesday, May 25, volunteers and people in need gathered at The Tabernacle, a Christian contemporary church located at 1445 West St., to take part in the Giving Back program. It was not an uncommon occurrence; it’s been nearly three years — be-

ginning June 12, 2007 — since The Tabernacle church first facilitated this food distribution program. The church works in collaboration with Foodshare in Bloomfield, a regional food bank. Foodshare collects food from big distributors and provides a mobile food

Women preserve italian heritage, traditions for future generations By Jessica Plaskett Special to The Citizen

Members of American Legion Post 72 salute during a Memorial Day ceremony held at Panthorn Park. At the downtown parade, an infant, who is dressed for the occasion, snoozes while marching drums pound, and two friends watch the procession.

When five Italian American women decided it might be nice to start a club to preserve their heritage, they had no idea the response they’d get. But when Clementina Mennone, Giuseppina DeMarco, Antonietta Barbato, Connie Palazzo and Anna Lopreiato gathered for their first-ever “Sorelle d’Italia in

America” meeting on May 12, they were surprised — if not shocked — by the turnout. Sixty-five women between the ages of 20 to 83 showed up at the Sons of Italy Club on Center Street that night, and even more are expected during the next meeting in June, said Mennone, president of the club. “It was really a surprise to

fit, which was provided to town employees who were hired before 1979. His payout will include at least 120 days of unused sick time and an unknown number of accumulated vacation days. While the payout amount wasn’t available May 27, the total is expected to be tens of thousands of dollars, based on Weichsel’s current salary. Projects completed during Weichsel’s tenure include the original Memorial Park pool, the creation of Panthorn Park in the Plantsville section of town and the town’s first dog pound. “It had been a shed,” he said. Weichsel said his single greatest accomplishment is his role in the construction of the Bristol Resource Recovery Facility, which was built in 1988 to transform trash to energy. “Garbage is not glamorous, but it must be taken care of,” he said. “I went to eight different towns personally. All eight towns agreed to join. In New England you know how hard it is to get eight towns to join anything?” he said. The number of member towns has now grown to 16. Weichsel is expected to be involved with the selection of his successor, Pocock said.

Chairman John Dobbins said that, while five new members have served just six months on the council, they all appreciate Weichsel’s experience, knowledge and wisdom. “He told it like it was,” said Council Minority Leader Anthony D’Angelo. He said there was no gray area when Weichsel made a decision. “I had the unpleasant task of saying ‘no,’ ” to residents, Weichsel responded. Public Works Director Anthony Tranquillo, who has worked for the town for 38 years, said Weichsel taught him everything he knows about public administration. “I’m hopeful he’s ready to retire. I’m a bit remorseful, too. He was a great mentor,” he said. Pocock said the town manager position will be listed with the city and county management association, the same group that honored Weichsel five years ago for his longevity. He said the selection process could take at least six months, and that there had been no discussion of a severance package for Weichsel. Weichsel will receive an “accumulated payout” bene-

Town Manager John Weichsel likes to joke that he’s the best town manager Southington has ever had. Of course, he adds, he’s the only one the town has had — for 43 years. At a May 27 press conference at the Southington Town Hall, Weichsel formally announced that he will retire in 2011. He didn’t, however, give a specific date for his exit. “I may stay on for the submission of the budget, February 25 or earlier,” he said. “The exact timing will depend on the council.” Weichsel was flanked by Town Council members during his announcement in the Council Chambers. “He’s been town manager longer than I’ve been alive,” said Council Chairman Edward Pocock III. Weichsel was hired in October 1966, when the town changed its form of government from selectman-town meeting to town managertown council. He was one of 60 applicants for the job, according to the Morning Record and Journal. The International City and County Management Association, of which Weichsel is a member, reports that he is one of the 10 longest-serving municipal managers in the country in terms of years spent in one location. In 2005, he was honored by the association for 50 years of service to local government, which includes Weichsel’s prior employment in Ellenville, N.Y. and Kalamazoo, Mich. Southington’s population when Weichsel was hired was 27,000, he said. “That’s a 50 percent increase. A very dramatic change. With that, it brings a whole variety of things,” Weichsel said. “There was a tremendous amount of open land. Roads and schools increase. Police calls increase.” “I like to think we controlled (growth) in a decent manner,” he said. Town Councilor Christopher Palmieri said Weichsel is known not just statewide but nationwide.

Friday, June 4, 2010 — The Southington Citizen

A reason to celebrate at the Friends Cafe and Testa’s By Corina A. Lopes Special to The Citizen

What happens when two friends, each with decades of experience in the dining-entertainment industry, decide to join forces? They open up a new bar and expand on an existing banquet hall, of course! Or at least, that’s how it has happened for Al Ricciardone and Enzo Testa, owners of Southington’s freshest cosmopolitan bar and gathering-place, Friends Cafe, at 15 N. Liberty Street, and long-time favorite, Testa’s Banquet Facility, 20 S. Center St. Owners of restaurant and food-catering enterprises say the business isn’t easy, even in the best of times. And in the middle of what has been termed “The Great Recession,” expanding on a banquet hall and opening up a

brand new venue in the same year might seem counterintuitive to some. This, Testa said, isn’t necessarily the case. “In business, in times like this, you are getting ready for the turn-around time. If you have something good to offer, people will keep on coming.” If you build it, they will come? In short, yes! As Ricciardone confirmed, upon learning Southington Chamber of Commerce President Art Secondo credited the nowopen Friends Cafe as adding to the success of revitalizing the lower Center Street neighborhood, “There’s a big change in Southington, even from just 10 years ago. A lot of investment to revitalize — from the town, and individual business owners — has been going on. People are getting a sense that it really is

In order to cater to this need, months of planning and construction going back to January went into the renovation process. Not only have two new banquet rooms, able to accommodate anywhere from 25 to 400 people, been added but so has a new bridal suite and a grand staircase, for photographs and casual entertaining for when guests start to arrive.

Where Testa’s Banquet Facility will serve all the needs of the big milestones in life, Friends Cafe is the perfect “gathering place for happy hours, office parties, a weekend hangout to watch the game, basically a place for friends to socialize,” Testa said. Taking care to distinguish Friends Cafe from the

an up and coming town.” This vibe of growth is one of the main reasons for the Testa’s Banquet Facility renovation and expansion, as well as opening Friends Cafe. “We feel there’s a great need for another banquet facility in town. People are looking for more options, a nice place where they can gather and celebrate,” Ricciardone said.

stereotypical bar, months of planning and renovation went into it, as well. “For example,” Testa said, “this place used to have seven-foot ceilings, and we changed it to 18 [feet].” The spaciousness isn’t the only change they’ve instituted. High-back leather barstools encircling round tables, flat -screen TVs lining

the walls, and a brand new Ushaped bar in the center of the room lend the Friends Cafe a very upscale, contemporary feel. Add to that the 14 different lines of draft beers, happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m., and food service from 11 a.m. to midnight, including their special house recipe for sausages, meatballs and homemade brick- oven pizza.

Dogs rule their park for first Petpalooza festivities

It was dogs, dogs everywhere, as far as the eye could see at the Southington Junior Chamber (Jaycees) first Petpalooza held May 22 at the Southington Dog Park on Mill Street. The Jaycees is a leadership development organization. The response to this event was amazing! Barb’s Pet Spaw and Wagging Tails mobile dog groomers were on hand offering free nail clippings or ear cleanings for your canine friend. Pet Playhouse and Sharon’s K9 Barkery were also available with treats and toys of all types and sizes. Northern Bound Rescue brought Oscar, the last of three pups they brought up from down south to nourish, love and find a happy home for. And, of course, the Meriden Humane

Society was also on hand to show off their furry friends as well! Country Dog Training of Southington donated its agility course and many of the dogs in attendance did a phenomenal job navigating the A-Frame or crawling through the tunnel. A Frisbee catch, fastest recall and musical hula-hoops were also some of the other games that were played throughout the day. In lieu of an admission fee, donations of dog and cat food were accepted for the Meriden Humane Society.

The Southington Jaycees’ first Petpalooza attracted dozens of dogs to the Southington Dog Park on May 22. A hula hoop contest, similar to the game, Musical Chairs, required the dogs to sit in a hula hoop when a signal was given. The winner of the first hula hoop contest was Emily Knox with Chloe, her Old English sheepdog.

Fallen soldiers, including Southington native, honored by state By Kimberly Primicerio Special to The Citizen

The names and photographs of five fallen Connecticut soldiers were added to the Wall of Honor at the state Capitol complex on May 27. Mary Ann White, a Southington resident, was among the families and politicians who attended the Connecticut Wall of Honor

Addendum Ceremony. White’s son, Sgt. Edward Kramer, 39, was killed last June in Baghdad. “He never really had a plain job, he just liked to save people and do what he was supposed to do,” White said to the audience.

ing, as were many of the families whose loved ones’ names already appeared on the wall. All were encouraged to go up to the podium and talk about their fallen hero. “He was just a great, great guy. So as we try and deal with this, I look around at the people here and I’m heartbroken again. So many people lost someone,” said White. Although the mood was somber, state officials told the audience that because of the patriotism and strength of their fallen soldiers, America is a safer place. “I want the families to know that every day when I walk through these halls I have the opportunity to look at your loved ones’ faces and remember that they died so

that began after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. “When you look at the 49 portraits on the wall, you will see that there’s commitment in their eyes,” State Comptroller Nancy Wyman said. The other four fallen sol-

diers whose photographs were added to the wall Thursday evening were Army Capt. Benjamin Sklaver, of Hamden; Army Staff Sgt. Ronald Spino, of Waterbury; Marine Cpl. Xhacob LaTorre, of Waterbury; and Marine Lance Cpl. Tyler Griffin, of Voluntown. White said her son would want to be remembered as someone who just loved life. “He was everyone’s friend,” said Bristol resident Carol Casey, Kramer’s aunt.

tary. As soon as Kramer graduated from high school, he left for the Marine Corps. White said he didn’t even attend any of his graduation parties. After joining the Marines and serving in Operation Desert Storm in the 1990s, he enlisted in the National Guard and returned to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Kramer was killed on June 29, 2009, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle in Baghdad, according to a Department of Defense statement. June 29 was supposed to be Kramer’s last day serving in Iraq. “I want to thank you for giving us an example of what it really means to be a patriot,” said Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. “Thank you for being here. This holiday (Memorial Day is Monday) is not only one you will speak about in your homes, but you will live it.”

“He would introduce himself to people and say, ‘Hi, it’s nice to meet you, friend.’ “ Casey said that Kramer would help anyone any way he could. “Just look at the jobs he had. He was a firefighter,” she said. Kramer, who grew up in Southington until moving to Vermont when he was 8, had four uncles who were in the service.

Clubs welcome to join planning for King event

Fifteen years ago, First Baptist Church of Southington founded a special event held each January on the Sunday of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend to honor the late civil rights leader, hear an inspirational speaker and award two middle school students for their dedication to serving others. Town leaders, representatives of various faiths and the community at large have attended in the past. This year, First Baptist Church’s Martin Luther King Jr. Committee is opening up the planning to organizations and civic groups to give others a voice in the celebration and interject new

ideas. Representatives from clubs and volunteers are welcome to a planning meeting Sunday, June 27, 3 p.m., at First Baptist Church, 581 Meriden Ave., to learn about the event and how to get involved.

‘Over the Rainbow’ Photo courtesy of Susan Kania

Many members of Plantsville Congregational United Church of Christ pitched in to help present “Over the Rainbow,” the 10th annual musical mystery dinner show, on May 7, 14 and 15. The show featured an original script by Susan Koenig, wife of senior minister, the Rev. Richard Koenig, in which Dorothy is put on trial for murdering the wicked witch. A colorful cast including munchkin lawyers, a wizard, a tin woodsman and many others, entertained with an evening of lighthearted song and dance and food. Proceeds will benefit church missions such as Haitian earthquake relief. tion, call the church office at 860-628-5595.

Memorial Day prompts thanks

To the editor: Feb. 10, 1968 was a terrible day in the life of Rose Burgess and her family. This was the day that her son, Marine L/Cpl. Raymond Arthur Burgess, was killed in-action during hostile fire in South Vietnam. Raymond had just turned

20 years old, four days earlier on Feb. 6, 1968. I have the honor to know Rose Burgess and her family. Rose touches my heart every day, whether she knows it or not, especially on Memorial Day. Rose always stuck out to me, so strong but weak, so happy but sad, I knew in my heart what her son’s death did to her, it took the life out of her spirit, but not out of

her soul. She knew God had a reason and one day he would tell her. Thank you to all the Gold Star Mothers and families, and Rose, a special thank you for giving me strength and making me a better person. God bless. John E. DeMello Sr. Southington

SHS Continued from page 1 “If I was in it just for the GPA, I would have taken lower classes,” he said. Instead, Snyder and Malone spent half of their high school careers away from Southington High School, in Hartford at the Greater Hartford Academy of Math and Science. There, they will graduate with 20 other students who have been taking college-level courses. Some of their classes include molecular biology, linear algebra, evolutionary biology and nuclear physics. “It was two different experiences,” Malone said. “Here, you get classes with a diverse group which makes for interesting discussion. There, you don’t have as much diversity, but everybody is interested in the same thing.” Though Mullhearn did not attend GHAMAS, she said she was busy at Southington High School “striving for balance,” applying her “work hard, play hard” theory. Mullhearn said all three students worked hard to finish where they did. “We really pushed ourselves,” she said. “I know I couldn’t sleep at night unless I knew I gave 100 percent.” The trio agreed there was no competition amongst them, as any of the three could have placed first, second or third, but Mullhearn said there was more internal competition than anything. “Personally, I was scared because I didn’t want to hit a wall because I could have just coasted through (high school),” said Snyder. Malone agreed, saying that the internal battles are what set the group up for success. “We all just wanted to learn

The top three students of the Southington High School Class of 2010 are, from left to right, essayist John Snyder, salutatorian Alaina Mullhearn and valedictorian Taylor Malone. Graduation is Friday, June 18. for ourselves,” he said. The students did a lot of learning in their four years said SHS Principal Kathleen McGrath, as each student was busy both in and out of the classroom. “If you look at their academic standings and the courses they selected throughout their four years at the high school,” McGrath said, “you realize they’ve taken a very rigorous program of studies and they have excelled at it. In addition to that, they each have other talents and strengths.” Malone is active in his church, a fencing club out of Cheshire and the Southington YMCA Young Leaders Club. Mullhearn is part of the marching band’s color guard, participates in the school’s Best Buddies program and created the school’s Students for Global Awareness club. Malone plays violin in the school’s orchestra and guitar in his free time, as well as being active in his church’s youth

ministry. While the trio began their journey at Flanders Elementary School, they will now disperse to different universities. Mullhearn is headed to American University, in Washington D.C., where she wants to double-major in international studies and anthropology with the sole goal of “helping to make a difference.” Snyder and Malone will head to Boston to attend Boston University and Tufts University, respectively. Snyder is majoring in physics, while Malone will major in biology in order to continue with bio-medical research. While they admit their GPAs and spots they finished helped them get into those schools, Snyder and Mullhearn said their journey goes beyond the numbers. “Life ignores the numbers you are assigned,” Snyder said. “If you worry about (the numbers) you miss out on the here and now,” Mullhearn said.

As a family-owned and run company with high integrity, great values and excellent customer service, we work hard to put a smile on each customer’s face. And that’s just what earned us the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards for the top heating and air conditioning company in the area! Many of our customers are getting huge financial benefits by installing our energy efficient products, thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which means up to $2,000 in rebates (one rebate has a time limit) and a $1,500 tax credit to those who install or replace their systems with high efficiency ones. “It has tremendously affected our business. Our customers are realizing rebates that reach thousands of dollars - it’s a huge deal for the consumers and for our company at the same time,” Carlson says. The new systems also bring significant savings in energy costs as well. “I attribute our continued success and growth, and our ability to stay strong as a company serving the community even in difficult financial times, to our loyal staff. Each member of our team, from the office personnel to the service department and installation crew - they all share my goal of providing the best personal service,” Carlson says. “With energy prices continuing to climb, we have been very successful in selling and installing high-efficiency HVAC equipment” he said. “With all of our products and services we try to get our customers best energy efficiency possible.” All of our technicians are highly professional, offering integrity and quality workmanship. “That is my goal - and it goes back to when I was working with my dad,” Carlson said. “We continue to offer the kind of service that keeps people coming back and referring their friends.” Watch our web site for some fantastic updates this month, at www.BillyCarlsonCT.com.

Hernandez Era set to begin Former Bristol star looking forward to first opportunity By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

Photos courtesy of UConn Athletics

As the spring season comes down to playoff time and Southington looks around at the many teams bidding for state titles, it’s only fitting that taking the front page is the football program, because when it comes down to it, Southington’s a football town first, everything else second. Adding to the massive hype was who was hired to take the position as the new football coach of the Blue Knights, former Bristol and UConn football star, D.J. Hernandez. Hernandez, a first-year member on outgoing coach Bill Mella’s staff last year, will step in and try to lead Southington back to the promise land – a state title – a

D.J. Hernandez was a leader as both a quarterback and wide receiver (right) at UConn. Now he’ll have to lead from the sidelines as Southington’s new head coach.

Hernandez place they haven’t been since 1998. “It’s an honor [to be named head coach],” Hernandez said in a video conference last Thursday. “It truly is. I’m so excited and so anxious to get back that I can’t even put

it into words. Southington as a whole, the school, the athletics, and the community is first-class. I’m just so honored to be a part of that. I can’t stress that enough.” But as far as 1998, Hernandez said that when he takes the helm, the focus will not be solely on winning a state championship, even though that is the final goal. “Honestly, that’s something I’m not worried about right now,” he said of the See Hernandez, next page

Hernandez the right fit for Knights By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen Southington High School football is a big deal. Plain and simple, there’s no other way around it. And after a season that involved both controversy and a 5-5 record, you kind of got the feeling that a big splash was going to be made in hiring the new football coach. It maybe didn’t have to be the most established person, but it certainly needed to be a name the school, the team and the town could attach itself to. What better guy than D.J. Hernandez. Granted, his record as a head coach in America is 0-0 (he’s a head coach for his Austrian team). And yes, he’s 24 and spent only a year amongst the high school ranks as a member of last season’s staff. But what the Knights needed

was stability, longevity and responsibility out of their sideline signal caller and that’s exactly what they got. “Hopefully, and as I told the committee, this is going to be a lifelong commitment in the counseling department, community and as head coach,” Hernandez said via videoconference last week. In interacting with Hernandez during that video-conference (thank God for Skype), Hernandez was poised, calm and articulate, but most of all, assertive and committed in discussing his early expectations for the upcoming season. “I’m looking forward to seeing how fast and how quickly the team buys into the new system, the new coaches and our way of doing things because what they need to understand is that we have their best interest in mind at all time and in all areas,” Hernandez ex-

plained. Emphasizing the team’s best interest in a reassuring manner makes it seem far-fetched to say that the new head coach will struggle to gain the respect and attention of his players. Even more importantly about Hernandez is the character he brings to the field. Desmond Conner, UConn football beat writer for the Hartford Courant, put it nicely in his blog saying that Hernandez is a blue-collar guy working for a town that excels in blue-collar football. By blue-collar football, he simply means that the Knights play the game in the trenches, with a grind-it-out mentality and tenacity that has defined the program for years. Hernandez is no doubt that guy, coming to Southington via Bristol and UConn. You’ve heard of the All-American boy, well he’s the All-

Connecticut boy. Maybe most impressive about Hernandez is his familiarity with the limelight. In talking with him during last football season and more recently, last week, it was clear that Hernandez always knew what to say, when to say it and he always said it with conviction. Southington is a community that takes a lot of pride in everything it does. An example, look at the uproar caused when V.I.P. came to town. I’m not here to talk about that or bring up old issues, but more to make the point that from border to border, people in this town are involved. And one of the highest profile jobs in Southington is not necessarily a political office, but instead the head coach of the Blue Knights football program. So if you say the wrong things at the wrong times, See Fit, page 36

The Southington Citizen — Friday, June 4, 2010

The Hernandez File Compiled by Michael Guerrera Name: D.J. (Dennis John) Hernandez Born: May 18, 1986 Hometown: Bristol College: University of Connecticut — bachelor’s degree in human development and family studies. College profile: Hernandez entered UConn as a quarterback in the fall of 2004. After red-shirting his freshman year, he played under center in seven games of 2005, two of them as a starter and in 2006 he played seven games with six starts before being converted to a wide receiver in 2007, a move Hernandez volunteered for. In his final two years, he was the team captain for both and one of UConn’s leaders on and off the field. In last year’s Jasper Howard slaying, Hernandez, a friend of Howard from their UConn days, appeared on such shows as Outside the Lines on ESPN to speak of the incident. High School profile: Hernandez attended Bristol Central and was an all-state player in basketball and football, earning 10 varsity letters, which included four in football and three each in basketball and baseball. He was named the 2003 Connecticut Gatorade Player of the Year in football in his senior year at Central. He was the first player in state history to rush and throw for over 3,000 yards in his career. Personal profile: Has a brother, Aaron, who is a current member of the New England Patriots and was an All-American tight end at the University of Florida . Coaching advice: “[Randy Edsall] said, ‘Expect a lot from the players; expect greatness.’ It’s going to be a difficult process, guys are going to try to contact you in terms of (coaching) positions, but he said, ‘You’re the head coach. Don’t just accept friends. You have to put a lot of thought into this,’ and he treats it like a business and I’m going to do the same thing,” Hernandez said. Resources: “Our job as coaches is to improve each and every year and learn as much as we possibly can to put our student-athletes in the best position possible to succeed. I think that, in order to do that, you have to utilize your resources whether it’s at UConn, whether it’s at Central Connecticut or whether it’s at any other school around the state or elsewhere. College coaches and NFL coaches are supposed to be the best, and then it carries down. The resources are available and I’m looking forward to utilizing all those resources along with my coaching staff,” Hernandez said. Information used from uconnhuskies.com

Hernandez Continued from page 33 state title. “I’m just worried about meeting with the team, having them focus getting lifts; getting guys to show up for lifts every single day. “Guys who are committed to buying into the team system and that’s just everyone coming to weight-lifting, doing the right thing each and every day because if you do that, you prepare the right way up until that point, state championships and playoffs, all that will come.” Hernandez becomes only the fifth Southington head coach since 1961 and will be one of the youngest, as he just turned 24 on May 18, but says that age is no factor. “Age is just a number,” Hernandez explained. “I have my values, I have my beliefs and the student-athletes and the parents in the community are soon going to see that.” Last season, Hernandez helped guide the offense under Mella, who Hernandez said helped in his growth as a coach. “Bill Mella, last year, I was

privileged enough to coach under him,” Hernandez said. “I am really, really thankful for the opportunity. Bill taught me a lot about coaching and some of the things about Southington High School.” But the new head coach says things will definitely be different. “I really respect Bill and what he did was great and what everyone last year did was great, but I’m different, I know a few guys on my staff, if not all of them, may have different mindsets and different visions about what they want to do and how they teach things, so it will be different in that sense,” says Hernandez. Currently, Hernandez is the head coach and quarterback for the Corinthian Black Lions, a professional football team based out of Austria. His last game is on June 12 and he is scheduled to return June 15. Because of his Austrian commitment, he will forgo spring practice and take extra time in August, as is the option from the CIAC. “I felt that was the best thing to do because I’m not there at this point and time, it will give the guys more time to lift and get prepared and it doesn’t make sense to run spring ball when they don’t understand the system and they’re having to deal with all of this change,” explained the new head coach. “Having the whole staff put in place, being there with them and having these extra five days is just going to be tremendous in terms of preparation for the season.” In 2009, the Knights faced a tumultuous season that saw both highs and lows as the team finished 5-5. There were also allegations brought against Mella prior to the year of the improper use of funds, of which he was eventually cleared. With Hernandez now stepping in, he expects to run a transparent program and expects success at all levels, stemming from him at the top. “I’m going to do things the right way,” he said. “The players can expect that, they

can hold me to a higher standard on and off the field. I’m not going to embarrass the program, I’m always going to put the program ahead of myself; put the school and the community ahead of myself.” Hernandez, though, will expect what all coaches do from their players. “We’re going to expect greatness and push them and every coach expects that,” Hernandez said of his expectations. “My goal is to win. Win in the classroom, win in

the community and win on the playing field.” In fielding the position of the new head coach, athletic director Eric Swallow said that there were a lot of applicants based on the fact that it was a high-profile position, but that through two interviews, Hernandez stood out amongst the masses. “In both cases, D.J. did an exceptional job expressing his views and his vision and where he sees Southington football going over the course of the future,” Swallow said. As a neighbor of Southington’s growing up, Hernandez said being a Blue Knight is a

tradition he not only embraces, but looks forward to. “Man, I used to play against them,” the former Bristol Central star said. “They always had a great tradition. They compete, and like I said. It’s first class. “Just from meeting with the community and being on the staff last year, being able to interact with some of the people was a great opportunity for myself and it was something that I wanted to

men, as students and as athletes,” he said. “Just seeing growth is something I really appreciate and something I take pride in.” While coaching, Hernandez will be interning in the guidance department while he completes his Master’s degree, another aspect that he is looking forward to because he can monitor his athletes and their grades during the school day.

I’m planning to be a big part of it.” When it all boils down, Hernandez says what makes him most excited is to coach the student-athletes and see them grow. “I’m just really excited to see players develop as young

it’s going to rear its head. (Southington has two daily newspapers and two weekly newspapers covering it.) So why does Hernandez fit the bill? Because he won’t do that – embarrass the program as he referred to it – going as far as saying that the players can hold him to a higher standard on and off the field. Another factor that makes the 24-year-old Hernandez particularly polished and can’t be underestimated involves his time spent at UConn, where he played for the most popular football program in the state and was (and still is) one of the most recognized players, a fan-favorite, team captain and leader both on and off the field. That’s why Hernandez fits, he’s already been there, done that. He’s already played under the bright lights, had to answer the tough questions and encountered some experiences that some coaches haven’t faced in a lifetime at the helm. This innate experience gives him the ability to immediately be able to connect with the young men he’s coaching in a way many others, even their parents, can’t

relate to; that cannot be underrated. “I’m looking forward to seeing what leaders step up and lead this team,” Hernandez said during his press conference. In analyzing that 13-word statement, you can ascertain a lot about what Hernandez is all about. Hernandez is a leader and that’s what he wants to see from his team. So when Southington takes the field in September for game one, and Hernandez takes the sideline, you’re not going to see a 24-year-old. You won’t see a former rival and Bristol Central star. You won’t even see the UConn player many loved during his four years. You’ll see one thing: a leader, which is exactly what the Knights need.

Southingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vasil named All-American

Eastern Connecticut State University menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacrosse junior midfielder Eric Vasil, Southington, has been selected to the 2010 United State Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division III All-America team. Vasil, who repeated as the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statistical leader in face-off percentage and ground balls per game this spring, was among 67 players named to the honorable mention team. The first, second and third teams were com-

prised of 12 players each, with the four national semifinals (Salisbury State, Tufts, Stevenson and Cortland) combining for half of those 36 selections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eric has become a tremendous player and an All-American due to all of his hard work [and] effort,â&#x20AC;? praised third-year Eastern head coach Justin Axel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And because of his great work ethic, Eric will only continue to grow as an athlete, student and person. He is truly a pleasure to coach.â&#x20AC;? Vasilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other individual honors this year included selections as first-team All-Little East Conference and sec-

ond-team All-New England. Vasil has proven himself to be the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier face-off specialist for two straight seasons, leading Division III in face-off percentage (.761) and ground balls per game (14.1) for the second straight year. This year, he finished well ahead of national runner-up J.J. Miller of Messiah College (.741) in face-off percentage and decidedly better in ground balls per game than runnerup Stuart Knechtle (11.47) of Gordon College. Over the course of the season, Vasil won less than half of his face-offs in a game only once (against three dif-

ferent face-off men from NCAA Division III national finalist Salisbury University). In eight conference games, he won 80.7 percent of his attempts, including 15 of 16 against Plymouth State, 20 of 22 against UMass Boston and 22 of 24 against Western Connecticut. Against four national contenders other than Salisbury, he won 76.9 percent of his attempts (80-of-104). In three years, Vasil is already the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-time leader in career face-off wins (671) and winning percentage (.693). He needs two attempts to break the current career record of 969.

UBSA Results The UBSA 12-under Hurricanes moved to 6-1 overall in the Connecticut Travel Baseball League after a split-doubleheader sweep of two opponents May 16 at Recreation Park. The Hurricanes, 4-0 in divisional games, opened the day with an 11-10 victory over the 11-under Stratford Storm. The Storm rallied from a 9-5 deficit to tie the game at 10 in the top of the sixth inning before Connor John scored for the Hurricanes on an error in the bottom half. Ryan DeAngelo, who came on in relief in the fifth, picked up the victory by retiring Strat-

ford in order in the seventh. DeAngelo also had two hits and scored a run, while John went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI. Kyle DeAngelo had two hits and scored a run, Garrett Gugliotti went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI and Christian Raczka added a two-run single and scored a run to help UBSA take a 9-5 lead after three innings. Matt Maxwell and Connor Crean each had a hit, an RBI and scored a run. UBSA came back five hours later and completed the sweep with a 9-7 victory over the 12under Connecticut Pokers.

Gugliotti led the way with a double, two runs scored, an RBI and three stolen bases. Maxwell went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored, while Ryan DeAngelo had a hit, a run scored, a stolen base and two RBI. Kyle Bunko went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI, John had a pair of singles in addition to a run scored and an RBI and Jose Silva added an RBI triple as UBSA led 7-3 after three innings. The Pokers closed to within 9-7 in the sixth with the help of two errors, but John came on in the seventh and allowed only a two-out single to pick up the save and ex-

tend the Hurricanesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; winning streak to three games. UBSA had little problems with the 11-under Connecticut Bombers on May 8 in Hamden, rolling to a 19-3 victory in a game shortened to five innings due to the mercy rule. Maxwell went 3-for-4 with two triples, a double, three runs scored and five RBI. Ryan DeAngelo went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI, while Gugliotti went 2-for-2 with a triple, an RBI and three runs scored. John went 2-for-2 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI and Bunko (run) added a two-run double.

Silva went 2-for-3 with an RBI, Kyle Kupstis went 2-for-2 with a double and three runs scored and Devin Prive had two RBI. Adam Wilson had a hit and an RBI, Mitch Raczka scored two runs and Drew Farkas added an RBI single. Christian Raczka also scored two runs for UBSA. A doubleheader split against a pair of opponents May 23 at Recreation Park has left the 12U UBSA Hurricanes with a 72 overall record in the Connecticut Travel Baseball

League. UBSA moved to 5-0 in the division by defeating the 12U East Mountain (Waterbury) Mets, 11-1, in the second game of the day. Adam Wilson pitched a one-hitter and finished with 12 strikeouts in a game shortened to 4 1/2 innings because of the league’s mercy rule. Jose Silva went 2-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI and Christian Raczka added a tworun single for the Hurricanes, who jumped out to a 6-0 lead after two innings. Connor Crean (double) and Drew Farkas (stolen base) each scored two runs and added an RBI for UBSA. Garrett Gugliotti, Connor John and Kyle DeAngelo each had a double for the Hurricanes. In the opener, John’s solo homer was the only offense the Hurricanes could muster in an 11-1 loss to the 12U Technique (Bridgeport) Tigers. UBSA finished with only seven hits and committed eight errors in the loss. Matt Maxwell went 2-for2, while Farkas (double), Silva and Kyle Bunko each had a hit for the Hurricanes.

Recipients of free food line up outside The Tabernacle church, 1445 West St. Three years ago, the church began the Giving Back program in collaboration with Foodshare. gram is open to anyone who falls below the income level set by Foodshare. To avoid fraud, all recipients must qualify. “Participation in a food distribution program during a mission trip to Los Angeles inspired us do something in our own community,” said Jack Chamis, a pastor at The Tabernacle. “When we came back, we contacted Foodshare who had also been

looking to do a mobile food program if they were sponsored in the Southington area. Our volunteers generally come from the church and we sometimes have outside groups that participate.” Volunteer Angela Troisi has been a part of the program since its inception. Her responsibilities include registering people. Other ways Troisi is involved in the

church include the Celebrate Recovery program, which is a 12-step Bible-based alcoholism recovery program, and the Women’s Fellowship, which provides women’s activities. Troisi thinks that Giving Back is “an awesome outreach to the community” and said the program is important because “at a time when people are in need, they know others will help.” Twice a year, the Giving Back program offers a free clothing distribution called Boutique on Wheels. School supplies have also been given to elementary school students. The church also meets other needs as they arrive, Chamis said. Parents of the pastor, Florence Chamis and Chris Chamis, have recently become involved in Giving Back. Florence is in charge of collecting the confirmation tickets as people receive their food. She is also a church greeter for The Tabernacle. She believes the volunteers “are more blessed than the people receiving the food just because [they] have the opportunity to give back.” Chris Chamis said, “It

warms my heart to see folks receive the help they need.” Tim Knapp is a volunteer who has been setting up tables and handing food out at the church for two years. Knapp is also a church greeter and believes The Tabernacle is “doing a great job for the community and helping those who really need a hand.” Robert Salka has been involved with the program since it began. His responsibilities also include handing out the food and setting up the tables. Salka thinks “The program is very much needed for the townspeople,” Salka said. “Pastor Jack” said he believes that “the best thing for people to donate is finances. For every one dollar, the church can buy ten dollars’ worth of food for those in need.” Volunteers can come and spend the morning or as much time as they can spare. More information on volunteering can be obtained from The Tabernacle church, at (860) 276-0400, and http://givingbackonline.org/. 1160046
