Library parking is not as fun as reading By Julie Sopchak The Southington Citizen Parking can be a pain. A trip to the Southington Library on a busy day can be just that – a pain – when the library’s tiny lot of 68 spaces doesn’t accommodate the swelling numbers the library gets on a summer day, according to Executive Library Director Sue Smayda, who said the li-

brary can get in excess of 1,000 visitors in one day. Hopefully the additional 96 parking spaces being added to the lot will vanquish the problem. “It’s way overdue,” she said. “I had friends and colleagues who would say [they] tried to come to the library and couldn’t get a space

Viewing herself on TV show an exciting experience for Marion teen and family By Robin Lee Michel The Southington Citizen

Actress Stephanie Jackson portrays Elizabeth Keckly, a woman born into slavery who bought her freedom and later became the seamstress to First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Following a scandal that arose when Keckly published a book about her experiences, she died in a home that she had founded for destitute black women and children. The program was held July 14 outdoors at the Barnes Museum. See the photo gallery at www.southingtoncitizen.com.

It was a long wait of nearly seven months between the time Marion teenager, Emma Hermann, and her mother Mary Sue Hermann, saw the results of being filmed in December for the TV show “Pit Boss” on the Animal Planet channel. However, they did not have to watch it alone at home; they had the company of nearly 100 guests at Saturday’s private party held in Emma’s honor at Sliders

Sports Bar and Grill in Wallingford. Last December, as the result of her Make-A-Wish Foundation wish being granted, Emma, 14, and her family, including father, Matthew Hermann, and big brother, Marc Hermann, were flown and treated as celebrities, courtesy of the organization that helps make life a little sweeter for youngsters and teens with serious medical conditions. Emma, who will be a freshman at Southington High School in the fall, was born

with a heart defect and gastrointestinal problems as

Officers shaken by shooting, investigation continues By Robin Lee Michel The Southington Citizen

Gothberg hend the suspect. At about 2:16 a.m., Gothberg was observed exiting the theater to the rear parking lot and approaching a vehicle. Two Plainville officers attempted to take the suspect into custody. “The suspect began to enter the car, did not comply with the officers’ directions and made sudden movements that caused the officers to discharge their service weapons at the suspect just as two back-up officers approached the scene,” according to Lt. J. Paul Vance, state police public information officer. Gothberg was known to own guns and police did not know if he was carrying a firearm at the time. That information has still not been released by investigators.

The state’s Major Crime Squad is still investigating how two Plainville police officers were hurt Saturday morning when apprehending a man that Southington police were seeking to serve with an arrest warrant for third-degree child pornography. Plainville officer Clifford J. Roper was shot in the forearm and officer David Slater received wounds from glass fragments when the police cruiser window was shattered by one or more bullets fired by a fellow officer. The wounds were non-life threatening. The incident occurred behind AMC Loews movie theater in Plainville. The Southington Police Department had been conducting a criminal investigation and obtained an arrest warrant from Hartford Superior Court for suspect Eric Gothberg, 45, of 1309 East St., Southington. The court had set a $500,000 bond. Following a tip, police learned the suspect might be at AMC Loews movie theater to see “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.” Southington and Plainville police departments were working together to appre-

The suspect was shot in the foot and taken to Hartford Hospital where he was guarded by police officers. On Monday he was released from the hospital and was held on a $500,000 bond. His next court appearance was set for July 21. The two injured officers were taken to St. Francis Hospital, treated and released. The officers that were identified as firing rounds were Sgt. Timothy Mullaney and Cpl. Jon Eno, both with the Plainville Police Department. “The officers are distraught, they’re upset,” said Plainville Police Chief Matthew Catania. “When you wear a badge and carry a gun, you are not looking to cause harm or hurt innocent people.” The chief said he could not discuss the incident at length and was waiting until the State Police Central District Major Crime Squad com-

YMCA announces ‘My Y is Every Y’ program

YMCAs across New England have joined together to offer reciprocal membership through their “My Y is Every Y” program. The program, which began in June, allows Y members in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont to access all YMCAs in these states at no charge when they present a valid Y ID card. “Our members count on their local Y here in Southington for their health and wellness needs. Now they’ll be able to take advantage of what Ys across New England have to offer. We’re very excited to be able to bring this added benefit to members,” said Lynette Ferguson, YMCA Membership Services director. “We look forward to welcoming members from other Ys as we all stand together to strengthen our communities.” Through “My Y is Every Y”, full facility/full privilege members will have access

rights to all YMCAs in New England. Members should bring their YMCA ID card and a photo ID card to check into a partner Y. Some restrictions may apply depending on the YMCA, so members are encouraged to check with the Y they plan to visit ahead of time to learn the specifics. YMCAs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island began “My Y is Every Y” in 2010 and with its success, the program expanded to all six states. “The program was very successful in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, so we’re pleased to be able to expand these benefits to members New England wide,” said Lisa Drouin, resource director for YMCA of the USA. “No matter where our members travel in these states, they’ll be able to stay connected to the local community and improve their health and well-being.” — Southington-Cheshire YMCA

As experts in biomechanics, chiropractors are trained to treat stresses and injuries related to abnormal body motions. This expertise may be particularly beneficial to athletes and exercisers who develop problems related to repeated movements associated with their sports. For instance, research shows that, among male college pitchers, the mechanics of lefthanded pitching leads to added stress in the humerus (the bone that runs from the shoulder to the elbow). Curiously, their right-handed counterparts of similar weight, age, and throwing speeds exert less stress on their humeri. This stress reaches its peak in the pitching motion when the pitcher has the ball behind him and his arm is extended. Knowledge of this potential problem may help lefty pitchers avert injury. Become familiar with the health benefits our clinic can provide, especially if you are active in sports. Call (860) 621-2225 today and make an appointment for a thorough examination and consultation. We are conveniently located at 200 Queen St. The answers you need. The care you deserve. P.S. The stress that left-handed pitchers endure on the humerus may be so powerful that it can lead to fracture.

p.m. That show has been rated PG for mature content and language. “Aladdin Jr.” director Lynn Flaherty said rehearsals for the show were set off because of the excess in snow days during the school year. She said usually a six-week program is run after the kids get out of school, but with the late school ending, rehearsal started three weeks before school ended. “Even in the spring it totally set us off and we had to totally adjust our schedule,” Flaherty said. “So these kids were still in school dealing with sports, end of school and everything like that and we added that on, too.” The group continued chugging through, however, and at Monday’s rehearsal, the kids seemed entirely upbeat and

Perry plays the role of Narrator No. 1 in the play and spends much of the time on stage communicating to the audience what is happening in the story. “My favorite part is they’re telling the story and they’re giving their own way into the story as well instead of just being storytellers,” Perry said of his role. “They get to actually be in the show and explain what happens to everyone, it’s really fun.” Emily Sargent, playing the role of Genie, said she loves

playing the character because he is so off-the-wall and “crazy.” “I like the fact that since I’m the Genie I get to be crazy and all out there and I’m just a chatterbox,” Sargent said. “I don’t have to be anyone specific, I just get to be a crazy, kind of out-there person.” Jamie Wyman is playing the role Iago, the evil Jafar’s pet parrot. She plays Iago through a puppet on her hand and said she loves the role. “I love that it’s kind of me being evil with Jafar and how usually when it’s a big scene it’s just us and I get to be sarcastic,” Wyman said. “I don’t really have to sing in a certain way or talk in a certain way, I can do whatever I want, I’m a bird.” Flaherty said the play is based on the Disney movie, so the audience can expect a good, clean performance. “It’s very kid-friendly, which is great because the older kids are doing a much more adult show so I feel like we’re kind of serving the purpose of the smaller kids and everything like that,” Flaherty said.

School, the Spotlights were polishing up their production of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” directed by Kristy Smith. Smith said she decided on picking this particular play because she “loves it” and it’s different for Southington kids as well as it is recent, since it was released to the public only within the past few years. She said with a little more than a week before showtime, rehearsals are mainly for fine-tuning. “I think right now it’s just polishing things, polishing dance numbers,” Smith said. “It’s a comedy and it’s a really sharp comedy so it’s kid of honing in on getting timing for all those jokes down.” Meghan Bowes plays the role of Christine Colgate, and said she is having fun working on the play. “It’s really stretching our acting skills,” she said. “We’re learning a lot from it.” She said the play involves a lot of roles within roles, so it’s been a challenge. Brandon Brush, who plays Freddy Benson, said that has been one of the most difficult aspects of doing the play. “There’s multiple roles per person which is hard because we’re all conning everyone,” he said. Jimmy Doyle is playing the role of Lawrence Jameson, a role he said he enjoys because of Lawrence’s “suave” character. “I like him because he’s really suave,” Doyle said. “And I like being able to be really suave and cool.” Bowes said playing Christine is a different experience for her because Christine is actually a bit like herself. “She’s just very quirky and she’s a lot like myself which is kind of interesting to play a character that’s similar to me, which hasn’t really happened before so it’s a different experience,” she said. Smith said when the audience comes to watch the show, they should be ready to laugh. “They should just be expecting to laugh for two and a half hours,” Smith said. “It’s just non-stop fun.” There is an admission fee for the shows and tickets can be purchased at the door.

The Hartford moving out of town

Mother Nature’s helpers Photo courtesy of Donna Funk

On June 6, Cub Scouts from Pack 8 went on a nature hike at Crescent Lake led by Peter Picone from the Department of Environmental Protection. They learned about plants and animals in the area. Afterward, they planted trees to help preserve the area. To learn more about scouting, visit www.beascout.org. Send us your news: news@southingtoncitizen.com

Plantsville/Southington

By Mary Ellen Godin Special to The Citizen The Hartford is closing its last remaining operation in town, at 400 Executive Boulevard, by September 2012, a company spokesman said June 28. The closing coincides with the expiration of the lease on the building, and all employees will be transferred to Windsor, Hartford and Simsbury campuses, spokesman Thomas Hambrick said. The insurance and financial giant had leased three buildings on Executive Boulevard until May 2009, when it closed operations at 100 Executive Boulevard, followed by the closing of 200 Executive Boulevard in October 2009,

shuffling employees to other operations within the company. Hambrick would not say how many employees are affected by the decision, but the transfers will begin next winter until the lease runs out. There will be no layoffs, he said. Town Economic Development Coordinator Louis Perillo III said he believed The Hartford had about 500 employees remaining at 400 Executive Boulevard. “All of the employees are retained and that is huge for our region,” Perillo said. “We also have time.” The Hartford’s consolidation plan, announced in 2009, provided an early indication that the company would be shuttering its leased properties in favor of corporateowned space. Unlike Pratt & Whitney’s exodus 10 years ago, the town won’t take a significant hit in tax revenue. Pratt & Whitney took 10 percent of the town’s tax base with it when it left, Perillo said. He estimates

The Hartford’s landlord, Lexington Southington LP, pays about $500,000 to $600,000 annually on the three buildings assessed at $15.5 million. The Hartford pays more than $100,000 in personal property taxes. “All these things will help mitigate the loss,” Perillo said. “By being more diversified, it lessens the blow.” But there is also the community loss, said Arthur Secondo, president of the Southington Chamber of Commerce. The Hartford and its employees were active in the chamber, the United Way giving campaigns and other community organizations. “It’s an unfortunate sign of the economy that they had to leave those buildings,” Secondo said. “It’s like a family member leaving the family.” The town’s planning and zoning commission is seeking proposals for a consultant to conduct a study on the

and left. That’s a very bad reason not to make it to the library, so we’re going to be much happier next year.” The construction, being done by B & W Construction, is costing approximately $329,000, according to Town Engineer Anthony Tranquillo. The project was in discussion for three years before construction began because of earth removal, according to Tranquillo. “There was a bunch of earth that had to be taken out of there,” he said. “We had to line up the earth removal.” Now under way, Smayda said construction started to-

wards the end of June, and is slated for 30 days. She hopes either by the end of July or end of summer the lot will be done. Smayda said the extra spaces will be great to have, and hopefully eradicate problems like losing spaces during the winter because of snow pileup, or even accidents, which she said there were three last year in the parking lot. “That has been so dangerous and so horrible,” she said. “When we have programs, one day I came and people were parked on Meriden Avenue for a program because the parking lot was full.” Smayda said programs at the library regularly attract

“Everything is moving along,” Smayda said. “So they may meet their goal of 30 days, and it may be a little bit longer.”

lems with the design of the lot prior to construction was the rear row of the lot. “If you’re looking at the library from the rear parking lot,” she said, “the farthest row has no outlet and people are constantly getting deadended in there because they think there’s an outlet.”

Southington student receives scholarship for third time

Continued from page 8

Kelsey Schrey was first selected as the recipient of the Rogers Scholarship in 2009 as a high school senior at the Carl M. Small Regional Agriculture Center, part of Southington High School. As a previous recipient of the scholarship, she is eligible to re-apply (for a maximum of four years) as she progresses through college. Re-applicants compete each year against the new batch of high school seniors. Kelsey received the scholarship for both her freshman and sophomore years, and was recently selected to receive it again for her junior year. She attends Unity Col-

lege in Unity, M a i n e , where she is pursuing dual majors in agriculture, food and sustainability, and Schrey environmental writing. “Although we do not sit on the selection committee, my family and I were very pleased that Kelsey was selected again this year. Despite her challenging course load, she continues to excel maintaining an excellent GPA and still finds time to volunteer with Unity’s FFA

I’d especially like to get into organic vegetable production much like what I am currently doing at my apprenticeship. I may do something related to food issues like working for a farmland trust or working to provide local produce to food-insecure families like the ‘Veggies For All’ program in Unity, Maine, which I have worked with through my college courses. “Receiving this scholarship for a third time, to me, means I’m incredibly lucky, and that my hard work has paid off,” Schrey said.

Kelsey’s hard work, determination and level of scholarship embody the spirit of the award,” said Peter Rogers. “I first became interested in agriculture in high school,” Schrey said. “In the regional agriculture program at Southington High School, part of the curriculum included a mandatory plant science class for freshmen students. I was initially interested in working with wildlife someday, but I discovered a passion for plants in the hands-on work during that class. Later, I got a job on a local organic farm and realized how much I enjoy producing food. “The majority of my education is paid for by scholarships and grants, so every little bit counts.

Emma is a fan of pit bulls because she has had one her entire life, beginning with Mazzy who doted on her especially when she was a critically ill baby and toddler. She expressed her desire to meet Shorty Rossi and his crew who star on the TV show, “Pit Boss,” that showcases the rescue and rehabilitation of pit bulls through Rossi’s business, “Shorty’s Pit Bull Rescue.” During the one day of filming, the family got to know Rossi and the other employees. While there, Emma fell in love with rescue pup, Angelina or Angie. After much difficulty, arrangements

were made to fly the pup from California to the Hermanns’ home. On Saturday it was a very excited crowd to see the final product. “When the show came on, I started crying,” Emma said. “I was happy but I was crying.” It took almost 30 minutes for Emma and her mother to be seen on the show and when they first appeared her fans started yelling and cheering so loudly the sound couldn’t be heard. “I had to yell, ‘shut up,’” Emma said. In summary, they said the producers took a little bit of “artistic license” in bending the facts a bit to fit the story. However, the family was thrilled that they had the experience. And they love their “souvenir,” Angie. “She barks when she hears the other dogs on the show,” Emma said. Since her arrival, the skittish and energetic dog

Sue said. In the days that followed the show, Emma received multiple requests from strangers asking to be her “friend” on Facebook. “I had to write them back to say my parents won’t let me be ‘friends’ with people I don’t know,” she said. Facebook also connected Mary Sue with a local woman whose 5-year-old son has Noonan’s Syndrome, like Emma. They’ve since have had a chance to talk. However, Emma is too busy this summer with her real friends at Camp Sloper to be thinking about any “cyber-friends.”

Letters to the Editor

Jeep owners hurt by remark

To the editor: I would like to relay a very disappointing experience my husband and I had at the car show at the Concert on the Green. We enjoy attending the Wednesday night concerts. In the past, we had brought our 1958 Cadillac Sedan Deville for display. We no longer own the Cadillac, but we decided to bring our 1968 Jeep CJ5 to the car show on July 13. We bring the Jeep to cruise nights and other car functions. It is fun to drive and it usually generates a lot of interest, especially among Jeep aficionados. When we arrived, the car show organizer let us in and told us where to park. We parked next to a vintage 1940’s military Jeep. As we were leaving our vehicle to

look for a restaurant, we were approached by the organizer, who told us that although he let us in this time, we would not be welcome again. We asked him why and he said that our vehicle was not “an antique, nor was it vintage, or a hot rod or custom.” While I agree that it is definitely not a hot rod or custom, anything older than 25 years is considered an antique (or in other words, vintage-from an earlier era). We were highly insulted as our vehicle is original and clean. Most people would agree that an old Jeep is about as American as apple pie. The other Jeep owners were not asked to leave as their vehicle was older than ours. We had a wonderful dinner at The Fire Place and then we hopped in our Jeep and left. Our evening was ruined and we will not be re-

turning for any future car shows or concerts. I guess we weren’t showy enough for the “car show.” I hope no one else has to go through the same negative experience we had. Thanks for listening. Carol Mockler Bristol

War cause of huge debt To the editor: If you examine our nation’s history over the past 200 years you will discover that our nation has been involved in more wars than any other nation. We battled the Indians and the Spanish, among ourselves in the Civil War. Two worldwide wars were fought in Europe, Japan, Russia, China and the Pacific Islands. We have occupied Korea for over a half century at unbelievable cost.

We thought we were omnipotent and have invaded in addition to Korea-Vietnam, Iraq (twice) and Afghanistan. In each of these wars we have been the invader and attacker and have lost them all with the exception of the first war with Iraq. I believe that the cost of these many wars and our refusal to pay their cost as the money was being spent is the principal reason we now face this huge debt of $14.3 trillion. It is not Social Security, Medicare, or other serious expense. It is our thirst for almost continual war. Several years ago the war department wanted to shut down Connecticut’s submarine facility and every two bit politician in our state took to the campaign trail in protest. The war department backed down and we are still building submarines. The only reason in the world for a naval sub is to kill. Since the 1950s we have elected to the presidency a number of inferior presidents. They have led us into a series of unproductive wars. We have been defeated in all but one — the first war with Iraq. How did we reward the first President Bush who led us to victory? We defeated him for reelection because he suggested that we should raise taxes and pay for our foolishness. Now we owe a debt of $14.3 trillion — the largest debt by any measure

that nay nation in world history has contracted. We spend more for war and for killing other people than the entire rest of the world. We spend eight times more than our nearest competitor China. While we have been fighting these foolish wars the remainder of the world has been fine tuning their industrial capabilities and encouraging their best and brightest young people to enter the field of education and paying them accordingly for their important contributions. In this country our citizens are far more interested in the athletic achievements of its UConn students than their educational accomplishments. The UConn coaches are the highest paid employees of the state of Connecticut. The math and science professors have salaries a mere fraction of the coaches. How did we get our priorities so mixed up? How could an entire country become so stupid? Our country has not been in danger of military attack for almost two centuries. The last attack was when Great Britain in 1814 landed troops and set fire to Washington our capital city. Perhaps at times our commercial interests have been threatened but I do not believe that any commercial or oil interest is worth the life of a single

Southington Remembers 9-11 memorial stars to shine As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America approaches, our whole town is coming together in an extraordinary community-wide effort to honor the memory of the victims of that unforgettable day of violence. Southington Remembers 9-11 will connect us to rapidly growing efforts in communities across America to renew our sense of national unity through 911 Day off Service 2011, likely to be the largest single day of service and remembrance in history. Southington organizations are already working to enlist the support of their members in committing to an act of service and remembrance for a victim of the 9-11-01 attacks on America. Participation remains open to all town groups and individuals. Each participating individual is invited to accept a memorial star, especially designed for this program. Each person selects the name of one of the 2,976 victims of the 9-11-01 attacks on America, personally committing to honor that person’s memory with an act of kindness, charity, service, prayer or good deed. Inscribe the name of the victim being honored on your memorial star. On the reverse side, briefly describe the service performed. Return memorial stars by Wednesday, Aug. 24, to the Southington Library, 255 Main St., placing them in the special receptacle or return stars to your group or any participating group.

The memorial stars will be displayed at our townwide patriotic, memorial service on Sunday, Sept. 11, 6:30 p.m., at Fontana Field, Southington High School. Admission is free and seating is first-come, first-served. If it rains, the event will be held inside SHS.

was deaf and had been patiently, (very patiently), teaching me sign language over the past year. Everything he did he did with passion: his work, (climbing branches with one arm /chainsaw in the other), his sports (including elite cage fighting), his love for his three children (and the one he lost so young), and his friendships. Each person that met him grew very attached to him, very quickly. The loss of his brother to cancer this year affected him greatly. I never saw him angry, just more reserved as he dealt with the sadness. His children live in Indiana where they attend the Indiana School for the Deaf. When I asked why work was better here in Connecticut, he replied in classic Kevin fashion, “There are not enough trees in Indiana Mary, only cows”.

See Remembers, page 25

Table 3 at Spartans was where he could be found between jobs; writing up his own orders and clearing his own dishes. He had three families: the one in Indiana, his parents and siblings from Bridgeport and his “Sports/Spartans” family. A special thank you to Jimmy Perzilla of Spartans II for providing and donating all the food for 300 people after Kevin’s service. It was amazing to be a part of the outpouring of support from family, the deaf community and Spartan’s friends. I know my life will never be the same after meeting and losing Kevin, but I promise to keep his memory with me and honor it daily. Thank you Kevin for being such a wonder, kind, funny, gentle friend; the kind I will never forget. Mary Peterman Southington

Legion team ramped up for playoff time By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen In talking with Southington American Legion baseball head coach Mark Ve r d e r a m e prior to the playoffs, which start-

ed this week, he discussed the attitude in the summer season. He said it’s not the same as during the high school year where it seems every game, regular season or not, has a ramped up intensity the summer lacks. “Summer baseball is different during the regular

season. It’s kind of laid back,” he explained. Post 72 finished with a solid 19-8 mark, good for fourth place in Zone 1. But with the arrival of the playoffs comes the arrival of a heightened awareness of importance in each game. It’s one-and-done time. “We’re going to be judge by where we finish in the end and not by a loss here or a loss there,” Verderame continued. “Despite what our record says, I don’t think anybody wants to play Southington in the playoffs.” And as a result of the “what have you done for me lately” attitude, the head coach was confident in his squad when playoffs began this past Tuesday. “During the playoffs, they’re going to be intense because they’ve been there before,” he said of his group. “They have a lot of experience that a lot of teams don’t. We’ve been through the fire. We’re ready to go. We’re ready to battle.” Obviously, the coach is referring to the majority of the team that played its way to the state championship game during the high school season. That experience can play a big part in how things unfold in the playoffs. “I think this team knows deep down in themselves that

Shock continue to dominate CCBL The first place Southington Shockers keep rolling through the CCBL with the season winding down to the playoffs. Charlie Lembo’s squad is unbeaten in July and has posted a 17-2 record (as of Tuesday). The two-time defending champions have gotten consistent quality starts from Donnie Crook, Kyle Florio, Mark Cole and Conner Bierfeldt. Closer Ben Schumacher has been perfect closing games, with nine saves, one win and allowing just one earned run in 15 appearances. The Shockers captain has struck out 22 batters in just 12 2/3 innings pitched, with a 0.71 ERA.

The Shock offensive attack has been led by Steve Howard (.390), leadoff hitter Steve Clout (.386), Eric Lemke (.333) and Schumacher (.326). Bierfeldt provided the most dramatic moment of the season so far with a walk-off grand slam against Manchester July 6 at Fontana Field; Luke Schumacher’s go-ahead RBI single led a seventh inning comeback rally against West Hartford on July 11. The Shockers concluded its season today. For playoff schedules and other information on the CCBL, log on to ctcollegebaseballleague.org

Kyle Lentini gets a hit for Southington. they’re the best team – that they’re a great team – and I think it’s going to show,” Verderame said. “They’ve climbed the mountain and we’re climbing it again.” Southington received the No. 18 seed in the playoffs and opened play in the playin rounds, starting Tuesday, July 19. They played an elimination home game, at Fontana Field in Southington, against No. 31 Moosup at 3:30 p.m. A win would pit them against No. 15 Meriden on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. With back-to-back victories, Post 72 would advance to the 16team double-elimination tournament that is set to start tomorrow, at Muzzy Field in Bristol and Palmer Field in Middletown. “The key is to get hot in the playoffs. We’re getting hot right now. We’re hitting the ball, we’re pitching well – I’m confident with anybody I throw out there,” Verderame said. Southington has depth at pitching and in the lineup and will be a tough out, no

matter what. Maybe the most dangerous part, the team knows its potential. “These kids know, they’ve been in the playoffs before, they’ve had the experience, and they’re starting to get that little swagger. We know we can go out and beat anybody. We’ve beat Bristol, we’ve beat Unionville. We could have beat Bristol three times this year. We’re not afraid of anybody. We know we go out there and we can beat anybody at any moment. We’re ultra-confident in our ability,” Verderame said. As for the starter for this past Tuesday, the likely choice was Joe Sullivan, who was stellar during the high school postseason. He won two games during the Blue Knights’ championship game run, first against Simsbury and then against New Britain. “Joe Sullivan is our anchor. He was so good during the high school season and he’s been great for us this

Legion Continued from page 31 summer,” said Verderame. If the Post 72ers can win, it might be Justin Robarge in the second game.

“Justin Robarge pitched great games,” continued the head coach. “He threw a onehitter against Bristol we ended up losing. He threw a onehitter against Simsbury, we lost that game too. We haven’t

been able to support him, but he’s been pitching real well,” Verderame said of the senior-to-be. However, the head coach says he’s confident in his entire staff and that he’s been using multiple pitchers in each game – the same scenario could happen during the tournament. “To be honest, I don’t

know who to start the first game because they’re all coming around and they’re all playing well,” said Verderame. There shouldn’t be any rust either. The team had a game scheduled every day for the final 19 days of the regular season, so they’ve faced adversity and are ready to go.

“I actually like that because we’re getting better right now, we’re coming together, we’re set with our lineup and I think just jumping right into it is what we’re used to,” Verderame finished. “I like our chances; I like our chances a lot.” Southingtonsports.blogspot. com, Twitter@MichaelGuerrera

Cooking with Susan

Susan Marchetti, of Southington, former owner of Susan’s Gourmet, is answering culinary questions from residents. Send Marchetti your queries to her at The Southington Citizen, 40 N. Main St., Southington, CT 06489 or email them to news@southingtoncitizen.com . Please include your full name, town and telephone number in case she needs to reach you. Dear Susan, Do you have a good recipe for deviled eggs? I tried to make them and they didn’t come out like I thought they would. Andrea Caliendo Southington

Alta graduates celebrate

Herbed deviled eggs Start by placing eggs in a single layer on the bottom of a pan (never stack eggs). Cover with cold salted water. Bring the eggs to a boil then remove from burner and put lid on the pan; let sit for 10 minutes. Peel the eggs and cut in half the long way. Take out the yolks and put them in a bowl. Beat in 1/4-cup of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of Grey Poupon mustard and 1/2 teaspoon of pickled relish. Add in parsley, rosemary and basil to taste. Put the mixture into a cake decorating bag or a zipper-seal plastic bag with the corner cut off. Pipe into the eggs. Sprinkle with paprika and chill.
