Ethics board decides vote violated code Special to The Citizen

In a ruling released Tuesday, Sept. 15, the Board of Ethics found that a Republican town councilor violated the ethics code by voting against a motion to halt the solar array project at Hatton School.

Read the entire decision online at www.southingtoncitizen.com Three of the four ethics board members agreed that Councilor Tom Lombardi, who works for Centerplan Development, had breached the ethics code, according to the decision. The board’s majority opinion stated

that Centerplan is directly affiliated with Greenskies, the company chosen by the town to develop solar energy sites on municipal property. Board Chairman Craig Simms, a Republican, and Democrats James

Reading challenge leads to pig smooch By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Students at Plantsville School chanted “kiss that pig” as their principal Stephen Bergin held his hands behind his back and a small raisin in between his lips on Friday morning, Sept. 11. Bergin laughed and slowly leaned forward to meet the oozing snout and drooling lips of Daisy II, a 100-pound hog who was eager to pick the raisin from Bergin’s mouth. Eyes closed and raisin ready, Bergin’s mouth met Daisy’s as the pig licked the raisin out. Students roared with laughter. “Mr. Bergin, that was awesome,” said farmer Paul Minor, Daisy’s owner, as he offered Bergin a high-five. Bergin, along with nearly 20

With students chanting “kiss that pig,” educators at Plantsville School in Southington puckered up one by one Sept. 11 for a kiss from pot-bellied pig Daisy II. It was all part of a payback on a summer reading bet that teachers made with students in June. Among the lucky smoochers was Principal Stephen Bergin, | Photos by Dave Zajac / For The Citizen See Pig / Page A8 above.

Sinclair and Philip Pomposi formed the majority. Republican Andrew Meade disagreed, saying Lombardi had consulted with Town Attorney Mark Sciota and Town Manager Garry Brumback and was told that there was See Ethics / Page A2

Council eyes vet tax exemptions By Jesse Buchanan Special to The Citizen

Veterans would get additional property tax relief under a tax break recommended by the Town Council’s veterans committee. Brian Lastra, the town’s assessor, said the town’s approximately 2,600 veterans or surviving spouses could get a combined $100,000 off their property tax bills under the proposal. The council scheduled a public hearing on the proposed tax exemptions for Oct. 13. The tax break was crafted by a committee comprised of town councilors and officials of local veterans organizations. Town Councilor Victoria Triano, a Republican, said veterans were grateful for the council’s efforts. The group’s work to find ways to help veterans is ongoing. “The vets are so appreciative of even that little bit,” Triano said. “This is a great start. It’s not an end, it’s a start.” Last year, the council approved an increase See Exemptions / Page A6

which he called a “back room decision.” “This is not about Tom Lombardi specifically,” he said. “This is an indication of the Republicans’ culture of government.” Ordering a revote is outside the ethics board’s authority, Rosenblatt said, but the council should nonetheless revisit the decision. He said the council should also review its choice of Greenskies at public meetings with the full council. In the ethics hearing last week, Brumback said Greenskies was chosen from among three solar energy companies. Brumback discussed which company to recommend with the Town Council chairman, Republican Michael Riccio, and the minority leader, Chris Palmieri. Palmieri and Riccio then relayed information to members of their caucuses before the vote, which was unanimous. Brian Callahan, the Republican town chairman, said Rosenblatt’s complaint wouldn’t have been filed if it weren’t close to an election. “This is dirty politics,” Callahan said. He also questioned the vote of ethics board member James Sinclair, a Democrat and candidate for the Planning and Zoning Commission. Rosenblatt argued his complaint before the ethics board, including Sinclair. “His political boss is making the charges,” Callahan said. “How do you think he’s going to vote?”

no conflict of interest. Lombardi recused himself from a May 2014 vote when the town chose Greenskies as a solar energy vendor. The majority found this to be evidence that there was a conflict when he later voted against a motion by council Democrats to halt the project in the face of concerns from neighbors. The board recommended to the Town Council that Lombardi abstain from voting on any matters involving Greenskies. The board received Theethics Southington two similar complaints about Lombardi’s vote in late June and early July from Ed Your Town, News and Rosenblatt, anYour attorney Democratic town chairman, and John Bruetsch, a Hatton School neighbor and plaintiff in a lawsuit against the town over the solar panels.

Neighbors of the school oppose the plan to put solar panels in a field behind Hatton. Six of them sued the town over the process used to approve the solar farm. Lombardi said he “went out of his way to make sure” voting on the issue wouldn’t create an ethics code violation, by checking with the town attorney. “I did everything I thought was right,” Lombardi said. Although he was cleared by Sciota to vote last year on the selection of Greenskies, Lombardi said he abstained to avoid the appearance of a conflict. Once Greenskies was chosen, Lombardi said, subsequent votes were policy decisions which were his responsibility. Rosenblatt and David Rosenberg, the attorney representing Bruetsch, failed to prove there had been a conflict of interest, according to Lombardi. He said the ethics board didn’t consider facts when they made their decision. “They decided based on political agendas and assumption,” Lombardi said. The complainants’ lawyers “didn’t prove anything.” All four ethics board members agreed that the vote “was in no way an indictment of Tom Lombardi’s character or commitment to the best interests of the town of Southington.” Rosenblatt said the decision should pave the way for more disclosure about the town’s choice of Greenskies as a solar energy contractor

Mooreland Hill school kicks off its 86th year Mooreland Hill School, at 166 Lincoln St. in Kensington, opened its doors for the 86th year recently. During drop off, the new Head of School, Reed Rathgeber, welcomed students and parents, including some from Southington, with the traditional handshake. In looking around the school, it is apparent that a great deal of hard work had been accomplished over the summer, thanks to the tireless efforts of alumni, friends, and family in the community who came to spruce up the school

both inside and out. Inside, the classrooms and common spaces were reorganized and polished up to welcome students to a new year. Spaces were also replete with new technology, including class sets of Chromebooks, new Chromebases in the library, and wireless printers. Students will begin using Google Classroom and Google Apps for Education this year at Mooreland Hill. Rathgeber anticipates that the use of these Google products will provide Mooreland students and staff with essential digital tools in a safe,

reliable, and environmentally-friendly workspace. Together, students and staff will become skillful learners and innovators through the use of these new tools.

Many thanks to all those who helped Mooreland Hill School get ready for the new year. The school looks great, and students are beginning a wonderful year of learning.

The Mooreland Hill School Community truly is a special group of people. For more information on Mooreland Hill, call 860-223-6428.

Councilor Stephanie Urillo voted in favor of the motion. Five Republicans, including Lombardi, voted in opposition and prevailed. Had Lombardi not voted, the vote would have been a tie and the motion would have failed since a majority is required for passage. Neighbors involved in a lawsuit with the town over the solar farm are awaiting a New Britain judge’s decision in the case. Sinclair said the board met after receiving the complaints to vote on whether there was probable cause to continue. After a vote finding probable cause, the board held a hearing last week with Lombardi, Rosenblatt and Bruetsch

where lawyers representing the parties argued their cases. The board met behind closed doors on Monday and reached a decision. The result wasn’t released until Tuesday afternoon. Before probable cause is found, ethics complaints are confidential and remain so if the board determines there isn’t probable cause. Thomas Hennick, the state Freedom of Information Commission’s public education officer, questioned the board’s executive session decision. “If they find probable cause, I’d argue that they should have had that vote in public,” Hennick said. Sciota did not return a call for comment on Tuesday after the decision was released.

the current year or if any relief could be given to veterans sooner. “That’s another year and a half out. A lot of these veterans could use the help now,” Barry said. Lastra said state statutes won’t allow the exemption to take effect any earlier. Barry was pleased with the ordinance. He said veterans on the committee had taken Southington’s proposed exemption to veterans in other communities. “They said it was very helpful for other towns,” Barry said.

Pig From Page A1

other teachers at Plantsville School and Board of Education Chairman Brian Goralski kissed the pig Tuesday morning as part of a bet made with students in June. Students were challenged by teachers to read over summer break and told that if they read enough, school staff would kiss a pig. On Friday, teachers and administrators lined up to smooch Daisy and own up to the bet because students collectively read more than 5,500 books. “Give yourselves a round of applause,” said Bergin to the students. “That’s an average of 23 books per student.” Daisy II and Minor, of Bristol, travel to schools and libraries around the country to promote reading. The program is called “Pig Out on Reading.” Daisy sat in a large baby carriage covered in a “Winnie the Pooh” blanket on the cafeteria stage. On the front of

Students chant “kiss that pig” as one by one, teachers give a kiss to pot-bellied pig, Daisy II, as part of a summer reading bet made in June at Plantsville School in Southington, Sept. 11. Second-grader Evan Pappalardo, 7, hugs Daisy II, a pot-bellied pig from Minor’s Farm. | Dave Zajac / For The Citizen his carriage was a bright yellow license plate with “I love libraries” on it. Dozens of pig books were set up on a table along with dozens of articles and photos of Daisy. As Minor explained why it’s important to read, a little about Daisy’s life on the farm, and about Minor’s other pets and family, Daisy let out an occasional snort and an oink or two.

Before Bergin kissed Daisy, Minor got the children even more excited and the teachers even more nervous. “You know what that white stuff is?” said Minor pointing to Daisy’s mouth. “That’s pig drool.” A unanimous and deafening scream came from the hundreds of children at Plantsville School. But right before teachers were invited to pucker up

for their kiss, Minor made the students repeat after him and make a pledge to Daisy that they will visit their local libraries and continue to “pig out on reading.” Goralski was the second person to kiss Daisy Tuesday morning. “I can’t tell you how proud we are of your reading,” said Goralski on behalf of the school board. One by one the teachers

lined up to kiss Daisy for the kids. Some squirmed a little, some screamed, other’s laughed, and most of them were a little grossed out. “Besides the drool,” said Regina Albee, a first grade teacher as she paused for a second and laughed. “Well, as long as it’s for the kids then I’m all for it.”

New brewery plans spring debut By Jesse Buchanan

Special to The Citizen

Witchdoctor Brewing Co. plans to open a brewery and tap room in Factory Square on Center Street in the spring. The brewing company owners say they’ve been looking for a suitable space in the area and chose the former factory for its location and aesthetics. Brewing tanks will be visible from the tap room through glass in a partial brick wall. The wood and brick factory used to house a CrossFit gym. Boards and signs will be removed, a bar installed and tables set up before opening. “That’s what really sold us on the space,” said Joshua Norris, an owner and mechanical engineer. He owns the business along with his wife, Allison Norris, and friend Daryl Adamaitis, a

brewmaster with commercial experience. “We want the whole rustic brick look,” Allison Norris said. Joshua Norris expects construction to begin within the month and take about four months. Acquiring state and federal liquor permits will take about six months. The Norrises have been home brewing for nine years and serving their ale at brewfests. Witchdoctor Brewing cards list “TBA, CT” as the company’s location. “Now we have a home, this is where we’re going to be,” Joshua Norris said. Lou Perillo, the town’s economic development coordinator, is working to attract breweries and distilleries to the town’s former factory buildings. A distillery at 24 West St. will likely take advantage of the town’s tax in-

qualify for tax incentives depending on the building improvements they are planning, Perillo said. “We’re happy to have people in these older buildings,” he said. Adamaitis said there’s camaraderie among brewers, such as Firefly Hollow Brewing Co. in Bristol and Relic Brewing Co. in Plainville. “That’s something I love about the industry, everybody’s friends,” he said. Witchdoctor Brewing will offer its Third Eye rye pale ale, Pauper’s Porridge oatmeal amber ale and other beers in the tap room, Joshua Norris said. Joshua Norris said he’ll invite food trucks or caterers to provide food at the tap room. The Norrises live in Manchester and Adamaitis lives in Bristol.

Special to The Citizen

Outdoor music can be played at Zingarella Pizzeria, but a permanent awning over the restaurant’s patio will not be allowed. The Zoning Board of Appeals ruled against the West Main Street restaurant’s request to approve a canopy over the patio at the front of the building. During the application, town officials noticed speakers on the patio and told him he had to remove them. Zommer then applied to allow the music, too. Board Chairman Robert Salka said only the golf course restaurants at Hawk’s Landing and Southington Country Club had been approved for outdoor music before the Sept. 8 unanimous vote. “This will be one of the first restaurants where we’ve allowed outdoor music,” Salka said. The board allowed Zommer to have outdoor music from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The

Salka said Zingarella and the golf courses aren’t near residential areas. Other restaurants could attempt to get similar approval,

but according to Salka the Zingarella decision doesn’t open the door for outdoor music everywhere. “We take a look at each application on its own merit,” he said. The board denied the canopy with only three members, including Salka, voting in favor. Four votes are needed to pass a motion. Matt O’Keefe, a board

Veteran freelancer lays down the camera By Nick Carroll

The Southington Citizen

The sidelines at local high school sporting events will look a bit different this year. That’s because, for the first time in a long time, photographer Matt Leidemer will not be there capturing the action. Not to worry though. He’s okay. It’s just that having criss-crossed the state for a decade with his camera bag in tow, Leidemer has simply decided to take a step back from photography. “It was just time to make a change,” the Plainville resident

said. “I thought about it at the end of last season (2014.) But I decided I wanted to go through one more year and take it all in for the last time.” Leidemer’s desire to hang up his gear — for awhile at least — is understandable. Photographing high school sports means spending a lot of time behind the wheel, late nights, dealing with harsh weather. But through it all, Leidemer kept right on truckin’. Passionate about the teams he covered, he would often shoot events five, six times a See Leidemer / Page A18

Ethics board has 4 members, but few deadlocks By Jesse Buchanan

Special to The Citizen

Despite having an even number, the four-member Board of Ethics doesn’t have problems coming to equitable decisions on conflicts of interest, Southington town officials say. Two Democrats, two Republicans and an alternate of each party comprise the board. Although there’s the potential for deadlocked votes, members and party leaders say it hasn’t been a problem. The board recently deliberated on a vote taken by Town Council Republican Tom Lombardi in regards to two complaints alleging a conflict of interest since Lombardi voted on a project that affected a company owned by his boss. The board met earlier this week at the Municipal Center to vote on the complaints and found Lombardi in violation

of the code of ethics. (See story page 1). Andy Meade, a Republican ethics board member and former charter revision commissioner, said the charter stipulates the composition of the board. It’s been a four-member group since its creation decades ago. Most decisions are unanimous although some cases “are tougher than others,” he said. Meade couldn’t remember ever having a party-line vote. “Politics shouldn’t enter the ethics board,” he said. John Moise, former Democratic town chairman, said the goal was to give neither party an advantage on what should be an apolitical board. To reach a conclusion, both parties would have to agree that the ethics code had been violated. “It has to be egregious,” Moise said. Neither Moise nor Meade thought there had been

political pressure on board members or that political considerations drove decisions. They also agreed that decisions hadn’t favored one party over the other. Moise said he’s told Democratic party members not to talk to the current ethics board Democrats about the Lombardi case. In Meriden, four of the five ethics board members are unaffiliated. The chairman Joseph Galotti is a Democrat. Matthew Dominello, Democratic City Council majority leader, was perplexed that Southington had a four-member board. There shouldn’t need to be a perfectly balanced board if members are

upholding the code of ethics and judging impartially. Dominello was on the city’s ethics board about 30 years ago. He said there haven’t been problems with the majority party ruling against political opponents in ethics cases. “You did your job, you read your rules on ethics,” he said. “It’s either right or wrong.” Wallingford also has a five-member ethics board which follows state rules on representation from political parties. Town Corporation Counsel Janice Small said it’s more important to appoint impartial, hardworking members to the board than to perfectly balance the political affiliation.

“You need to look at the qualifications of the people on there,” she said. Cheshire refers ethics complaints to its town attorney and doesn’t have an ethics board. Moise said the goal was to appoint “elder statesmen” to the ethics board – people who had served the town, aren’t looking to make a name for themselves and who aren’t beholden to their party. The ethics board receives complaints and considers their merits in executive session. Hearings are held in public but deliberations aren’t public. Meade said it’s to protect the reputation of people accused of an ethics violation.

within 4 inches of the property line. O’Keefe said the restaurant already has a variance for the ice cream booth next to the linear trail on the west side of the property. “That’s not to say he couldn’t put up a temporary

awning,” O’Keefe said. At the last board meeting, Zommer said he had a retractable awning that was torn off in a windstorm. He hoped to replace that with something more stable that included lights and fans. Zommer could not be reached for comment.

Opinion

Southington shines in these two stories

From Southington

Two events, highlighted in today’s Appleseed, put the spotlight on the town in the best of ways.

STEPS: ‘Be in the Know’

All good reasons to like a place By Dick Fortunato Special to The Citizen

The Citizen recently asked a few local folks a classic question about the town: “What do you like about Southington?” Here are their answers. Garuti Coleman Mitchell Garuti 9th grade student That we have public swimming pools. Elijah Osorio 10th grade student I like the movies. (Starplex Cinema) Laura Koba (no photo) 12th grade student The community. It seems to me that people here like Southington each other. They’re always Nurse, Hospital of Special ready to help each other out. Care Brian Stroh I like it because it’s nice School aide, Southington The Apple Harvest Festival. and quiet, friendly and safe.

As the new school year begins, Southington’s Townwide Effort to Promote Success, more familiarly known as STEPS, is off and running again as, with excitement, it begins its seventh year in operation. So, here’s a “save the date” notice of the first event taking place on Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Southington Municipal Center. “Be in the Know” will be an informational forum, specifically designed for parents in Southington. “Learn the truth about the dangers of underage drinking,” reads a STEPS flyer being circulated around town. A panel of presenters will explain the reality and impact of the Connecticut Social Host and Alcohol Possession laws and provide tips for talking to kids about underage drinking. Presenters include: Attorney Tony Sheffy; pediatrician, Dr. George Skarvinko; and Lt. Steve Elliott along with Officer Chad Butler of the Southington Police Department. The event is sponsored by STEPS, Wheeler Clinic and the Southington Police Department. Registration is preferred at www.ctclearinghouse.org/registration . STEPS defines itself as a coalition of the town-wide community. It includes all our schools who have inte-

grated STEPS throughout the district. Our educators, town government, police and fire departments, along with our faith, business, professional, health and veterans communities are part of STEPS. Most important are our parents and students, many becoming role models, enlisting other kids in the journey of STEPS. Just think about a culture of teenagers and pre-teens growing up free of the dangers of access to and use of alcohol, prescription and illegal drugs and other mind-altering substances like marijuana. Imagine the new society our kids can become. Yes, it is a process — one in which Southington’s STEPS coalition has been making steady forward strides in changing talk into positive interaction and communication with our kids. It’s important enough for you to be in the know. I’m In. Are you?

American Hero visits Southington On Saturday, Sept. 12, former Cheshire resident and national hero, Colonel Harvey Curtiss Barnum, Jr. (aka ‘Barney’ Barnum), dropped in for a visit with the volunteer ladies, at the American Legion Kiltonic Post #72 Hall, in Southington, who were sewing and ironing Quilts of Valor for our wartime veterans.

of Honor for valor during the Vietnam War. He was visiting his former home town of Cheshire for the dedication of a roadway officially named in his honor for his heroism. At a celebration of the Cheshire VFW at the Waverly Inn, Southington resident John DeMello, Sr., past commander of American Legion Post #72, and a retired Cheshire police officer, had been invited to the celebration at the Cheshire VFW in Barnum’s honor. Barnum DeMello knew Barnum from his Cheshire years and asked him if he would like to visit with the ladies working on the Quilts of Valor in Southington the next morning. “Barney said he would be honored to stop by, having heard a lot about the Quilts of Valor,” DeMello said. “Next day, he came and thanked the ladies for what they are doing. A beautiful Quilt of Valor was then presented to him by Marilyn Finnegan, Connecticut co-coordinator of the Quilts of Valor. After more than 27 years of service, Barnum retired from the Marine Corps in 1989, serving later as deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for Reserve Affairs from 2001 Marilyn Finnegan, state coordinator of the Quilts of Valor project with Ret.

Leidemer me with some personal stuff, talking about things.” Leidemer grew up in New Britain and attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School, graduating in 1998. He became interested in cameras while attending the University of Hartford. Leidemer’s sports photography first appeared in The Plainville Citizen in 2004. Soon after, his work also began gracing the pages of The Berlin Citizen and The Southington Citizen. “The one thing I pride myself on as a photographer was my timing; not shooting 10 frames per second,” Leide-

mer said. “I like having everything timed. I shot one shot to try to get it. When you see photos of a ball falling into a receiver’s hands, that was timed. That’s the thing I’m proudest of from a professional standpoint; being able to capture a split second like that.” Along with shooting the ‘major sports’ such as football, basketball, soccer and baseball, Leidemer always made it a point to photograph less-publicized teams, as well. He would often ply his craft at volleyball matches, wrestling meets, cheerleading competitions and powderpuff football

While he’ll no longer be just feet away from the action, don’t be surprised to see Leidemer in the stands this year. “The only part that’s really gone is the photography, and being there every night,” he said. “I still see myself going to some of the games.” Leidemer believes people can take a lesson from his unexpected journey to semi-celebrity. “Experiment with some stuff. Step out of your comfort zone,” he said. “That’s what happened to me with this. This was an accident. And look how it turned out.”

“We want to spread the love of tennis throughout the community.” Their second goal was to give back to the Southington Care Center Residents’ Council Fund. Kunal and his mother, Alka Sharma, had volunteered at the care center in the past. The tournament, supported by the Kataria family and friends, also had the support of several local businesses. Their names appeared on the backs of the light blue T-shirts that were handed out to all. Kunal hoped that

the shirts would help spread the word of the tournament for future years. The tournament had about 85 entries. It was obvious that all who attended had a good time. The food was as plentiful as the good tennis. On Aug. 27, Kunal and his younger brother, Rohan, came to Southington Care Center and presented a $500 check for the Residents Council Fund. Our thanks to all involved. See you next year! Marion Gifford, President Residents’ Council Southington Care Center

In the latest episode of Southington football ... Blue Knights, Rose (6 TDs) pick up where they left off The two-time defending Class LL football champions were back to their punishing, high-flying ways on Friday, Sept. 11. All-State quarterback Jasen Rose threw six touchdowns as Southington dismantled Manchester 54-9 in a CCC Division Southington 54 I c r o s s over game Manchester 9 at Fontana Field. Rose connected for two TDs apiece to Austin Morin, Jake Testa and Alessio Diana. Diana also broke off an 87yard touchdown run in the third quarter, which is when the starters came out and the game went on running time. Back in the first quarter, Rose got off to a hot start with three touchdown passes: an eight-yarder to Morin, a 30-yarder to Testa and a 80yard bomb to Diana. Diana’s catch put the Knights up 20-6. The running back said Rose has great accuracy. “It’s a tremendous honor,” Diana said of playing with Rose. “I thank Jay everyday because I have a quarterback like that because just to have his accuracy, he’s always consistent, and his throwing power — he knows how to put the ball on the spot.” Sometime in the next few days, Rose is expected to announce his college choice, a decision that has come down

to Syracuse and UConn. Meanwhile, he continued his assault on Manchester’s defense in the second quarter. He threw a 14-yarder to Testa and a 36-yarder to Morin to give the state’s No. 1-ranked team a commanding 34-9 advantage at the half. Morin is taking on a big responsibility this year with the departure of All-State wide receiver Alex Jemel as well as Matt Maxwell. “I feel like I have a bigger role, but we have a lot of good receivers stepping up, making big plays,” Morin said. Morin added that he and Rose are on the same page. “I feel like we have a great connection out there. … It’s something special,” Morin said. Diana sealed the win with two more touchdowns in the third quarter: a 39-yard pass from Rose and then a 87-yard sprint to the end zone following the lead of fullback Vance Upham. “As soon as I saw Vance get in front of me, I knew it was a touchdown because when Vance gets a full head of steam, he’s cracking someone,” Diana said. “He made the block that made me score.” Diana’s three-TD night impressed head coach Mike Drury. “Tremendous hands, making big-time plays, big-time catches, so we know he’s going to be a threat in the backfield and a threat at the receiver,” the coach said.

A hello to arms Rose, Dingwell and Raba dominated the highlights in Week 1 By Bryant Carpenter Special to The Citizen

The opening Tuesday Morning Quarterback of the 2015 high school football season goes wholly to the quarterbacks. Sometimes, the name tells it all. And when we talk about names, Jasen Rose is about as household as it comes on the state grid. On opening night Friday, the Southington senior added to his renown by throwing six touchdown passes in a 54-9 thrashing of Manchester. Rose, who was to announce Thursday whether he’s going to Syracuse or UConn, was 15for-20 for 303 yards. Through 2½ quarters. By the middle of the third, Rose and the starters were out and the game was on running time. Here’s another name

Tuesday Morning Quarterback you should know by now: Chris Dingwell. Dingwell is in his third year as quarterback of the Maloney Spartans and, on opening night, he threw four touchdown passes in a 44-12 whipping of South Windsor. And, while we’re at it, file this one away: Jack Raba. Only a sophomore and playing in his first varsity game, Raba delivered Cheshire a 14-7 victory over Hamden when he connected with classmate Eric Angelone on a 50-yard TD pass with 12 seconds to play. It was drama matched only by Windham’s 20-14 win over Waterford. The Whippets whipped up a 86-yard scoring play with 16.7 seconds to go. Elsewhere in our fair state, Hand’s Nick van Dell became that program’s all-time passing leader in a 28-16 win over Amity. Granted, Hand is a relative

newcomer to the spread-offense kitchen. Southington practically set the table, which is why Rose, following in the footsteps of Hank Papale, Dan Bruetsch, Doug Fink, Matt Kelleher and Stephen Barmore, is still working his way up the school’s all-time passing charts. Here’s another blast from the Southington past: Connor Butkiewicz. In 2010, in the first game of a senior season unfortunately interrupted by an appendectomy, Butkewicz threw seven TD passes against Hall. That matched the seven Fink threw against Cheshire in the 2001 Apple Classic. So Rose, with his six TD tosses Friday, sits tied for third on Southington’s single-game list. He’s there twice over, having thrown six TDs last season against New Britain. Rose does rank No. 1 among Blue Knights bombers for completions in a season (218) and TD passes in a season (47, second-best in CT all-time).

Isaiah Osorio finished the scoring with a 20-yard run in the game’s final minute. Drury credited his offensive line for having a big night. “We constantly tell the offensive line the success of the offense goes through them. I’m impressed with how they’re playing,” Drury said. The coach was also impressed with his defense, which has many new faces this fall. “We had a lot of question marks on the defense coming in, a lot of guys that had to step up, new players in new positions this year and they played physical and they flew to the ball and played with energy,” he said. — Record-Journal staff

During the bye week, there can be no live contact during practice.” In other football changes, the CIAC shortened the preseason, and made it a no-no for a youngster to play in more than six quarters in any

Readers of a certain age will recall a time when concussion awareness in athletics simply did not exist. Those were days when an athlete wobbly from a hit would “shake it off” and get back at it, and coaches would question a player’s mettle if they didn’t. “You’re fine. You just got your bell rung,” was often their sage advice. “The team needs you out there.” Now, we know how unwise that tough-it-out philosophy is, and how dangerous concussions can be. Regarding the long-term consequences of multiple concussions, the website concussiontreatment.com states that: “Not only can multiple traumatic incidents contribute to the development of mild cognitive impairments, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and other adverse outcomes, but a storied concussion history can also cause post-concussion syndrome. “While we are still elucidating the causes of these long term effects, it is imperative that a person fully recover from one concussion before risking a subsequent one. “Failing to do so adequately can lead to additional neurologic damage.” While concussions are a real possibility in most sports, the threat, not surprisingly, is greatest in football. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the odds of a football player sustaining a concussion at a staggering 75 percent. Thankfully, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic

one-week period or to participate at more than two levels of play in any one-week period. The logic there being, the less time spent in pads, the less chance for injury. We applaud the CIAC’s decision to tweak its football rules and schedule. The changes will help keep players out of harms way. Shaking it off certainly isn’t the answer.

Students view 9/11 attack anniversary differently By Molly Callahan

Special to The Citizen

Freshman students watch video footage of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center during a social studies class at Platt High School in Meriden, Sept.11. | Dave Zajac / For The Citizen

this changes the conversation about the anniversary in the classroom. “The difference between 10 years ago and now is that the students used to want to share their memories and wanted to learn why it happened,” Southington School Superintendent Timothy F. Connellan said in an email

Friday. “Now, there are no memories and it has become another historical topic to study, although we encourage (students) to begin a dialogue at home about their family’s memories. They are still incredibly curious about the why, but now also with the event itself. We have to clar-

come less emotional in the 14 years since. “The further away you get from something, the easier it gets, with anything,” she said. “It lessens the pain of the event.” Teachers of different aged students need to approach the anniversary differently. Considering some of Southington’s youngest students, Connellan said that while all elementary schools recognized a moment of silence, “a Grade 4 team is the only grade that did address it on their own, with parent knowledge.” Students in that team read a story about the event, and students “made a paper quilt to honor heroes and remember people who passed away,” Connellan wrote in the email. Locally, teachers of older students put more focus on the events and their impact. Connellan said that in the town’s high school the social studies department as a See 9/11 / Page A24

For many people, the anniversary of 9/11 brings with it vivid memories of exactly where they were and what they were doing on the morning two Boeing 767 airplanes crashed into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center. But for nearly all students in school on this year’s anniversary, the date did not bring with it any personal memories because even the oldest students were toddlers in 2001. “It’s easier to talk about now. It’s a historical event now,” said James Flynn, a social studies teacher at Platt High School in Meriden. “It doesn’t bring the same trauma it did for other students.” Friday was the 14th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, when between 8:46 a.m. and 9:03 a.m., hijackers crashed a Boeing 767 into floors 93-99 of the North Tower and another Boeing 767 into floors 75-85 of the South Tower. The latter collapsed at 9:59 a.m., and the former at 10:28 a.m. Including a third hijacked plane which was flown into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. and another that was crashed in Pennsylvania nearly 3,000 people died that day, making it the most deadly terrorist attack on U.S. soil. For teachers, it’s an anniversary that brings clear memories — similar to the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy for the generation prior. An intern at New Britain High School at the time, Flynn recalled exactly what he had been wearing and exactly where in the high school he’d been when he got news of the attacks. Platt math teacher Joe Laskowski likewise easily remembered being at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts on Sept. 11. Asked what he remembered from the day, Platt freshman Christian Rios, however, said, “I don’t know. I wasn’t born yet.” For Flynn and Laskowski and other school officials,

ify the event more than we’ve done in past years,” he said in the email. Shawn Parker, assistant school superintendent in Wallingford, said that teachers consistently need to provide more context for students. “Anytime there’s any type of special day like 9/11, some of our teachers in U.S. History for example, will focus on an aspect of that day,” Parker said. “They have to build that background knowledge, though, because students don’t have that knowledge to hang onto now.” The atmosphere in schools on the anniversary has changed through the years as well. “It’s a much less somber day,” said Meriden’s Maloney High School Principal Jennifer Straub. The school recognizes a moment of silence at the time when the second plane flew into the tower. While that’s still a poignant moment, Straub said it’s be-

ing. He said he typically spends a short amount of time talking about the theories, but they come back up again later in the year during a whole unit on conspiracy theories. “They’ve all read some kind of conspiracy about it, so I have to spend some time debunking them,” he said. Laskowski on Friday gave students an explanation of the plane crashes and subsequent tower collapses from a more structural engineering viewpoint, as did at least one other science teacher at the school. And of course, as more time goes on, more context about the impact of the attacks is available. “It is a little more interesting to teach it now,” Flynn said. “There’s more information out there — you can truly

teach it.” “It has impacted these students’ whole lives,” Laskowski said. Flynn noted that the sophomores in his classes now have lived in an America that has been at war since they were born, as the war on terror began just after the 9/11 attacks. They are also a generation who doesn’t know the New York City skyline any other way, Straub pointed out. “These kids can connect with it on a different level now,” Laskowski said, referring to the nearly limitless amount of information available online. Despite what’s available, educators still try to juggle what is appropriate to show students who don’t have visceral memories of the events of the day. Marisa Volo, a social stud-

ies teacher at Platt High School, showed her freshman class part of a 9/11 documentary, which by its nature is somewhat graphic. “Sure, I was wary of it at first,” she said, “but ultimately I decided that this is real, and I don’t want to censor what happened.” It does appear though, that the poignancy of the anniversary, like Straub said, is not lost on students today despite their not having their own memories of it. Platt freshman Shaslie Oquendo, who was a month old on Sept. 11, 2001, said she felt emotional watching the documentary Friday. “I feel like I’m there,” she said. “It feels like a day when we’re all together.”

A great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon beneath her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. -- Revelations 12:1 Puzzle on Page A14
