Council airs $138.6 million budget

WALKING FOR A CAUSE The “Help End Hunger Walk” was held Sunday, April 27. Proceeds from the event —made possible with the help of the Parks and Recreation Department, Activate Southington and the YMCA — will benefit Southington Bread for Life. Participants chose a one- or three-mile walk on the Rails to Trails flat course.

By Jeff Gebeau Special to The Citizen

The Town Council held a public hearing Monday night on Town Manager Garry Brumback’s proposed $138,609,000 budget for the new fiscal year. The Board of Finance approved the budget on March 27 without modification, which officials say has never happened before. The budget consists of $87,072,005 for the Board of Education and $51,536,722 for the general government fund. The cumulative figure represents a $9,294,522 or 7.2 percent increase over last year’s budget. The Board of Education received a 3.4 percent increase. More than $4 million of the increased spending would be taken from reserve accounts and be used to finance capital projects. Spending increases would also be funded by raising the tax rate to 0.9 mills, resulting in a median property tax hike

From farm life to the Vegas Strip By E. Richard Fortunato Special to The Citizen

Steve Lippia, who grew up on his grandfather’s vegetable farm in Southington during the town’s rural era of the 60s and 70s, looks back fondly on his boyhood. “My family worked hard as farmers. Not people of means. But I was happy,” he said. Lippia attended Flanders Elementary, St. Thomas Junior High School and St. Paul’s High School in Bris-

Chamber dinner ‘a huge success’ By Charles Kreutzkamp

is a vibrant and appreciated organization in town.” “Our chamber does this differently,” said Art Secondo, chamber president for 11 years. Past themes have included Oldies and Dirty Dancing. Back to the 80’s “felt appropriate,” Secondo said, “it’s something we’ve seen in the media, and the chamber dinner is being held on the 40th anniversary of the invention of the Rubik’s Cube.” Though invented in ‘74, the Rubik’s Cube hit the U.S. in 1980. A lot of effort went into decoration, Secondo said. Tables were decorated with a mini Rubik’s cube for each guest, and several old video game machines were brought in. SOUTHIINGTON CITIZEN LOGOS

“People have a great time, and it’s great for networking and camaraderie between chamber members,” Garstang said. The chamber awarded “Riccio Brothers Business Person of the Year” to Joe Calvanese, who oversees the Calvanese Foundation and the Aqua Turf Club, which frequently hosts charitable events, at times for no cost. The Calvanese Foundation raised $50,000 for charity at the 16th annual gala April 5. “It’s a great honor,” said Calvanese, who said that his employees, sisters, and nieces all deserve to share the recognition for hosting fundraisers.

A new assistant principal has been named for Southington High School. The Board of Education unanimously approved the selection of Dianne HolstGrubbe, the head of Farmington High School’s English department, to fill the vacancy at its April 24 meeting. Interviews were held April 23 for the position, which has an annual salary of $123,019. Board Chairman Brian Goralski said Holst-Grubbe’s “grasp of curriculum and leadership experience helped her rise to the top of a quality pool of candidates.” The district is “excited to have her keep moving academics forward at Southington High School,”

Goralski said. After the confirmation vote, Holst-Grubbe told members that she was honored by her opportunity and “really excited to start the work.” She said she was drawn to Southington by its “visionary and progressive” educational methods. “That’s the kind of place I want to work,” she said. Holst-Grubbe said her approach is to ”work collaboratively” with fellow administrators, faculty and students toward established objectives. “That’s when something great happens because everybody understands the vision and focus of what we’re doing,” she said.

Lippia tol before graduating from the college now known as Central Connecticut State University with a degree in psychology and English literature. He went on to study law at Western New England College. Eventually, Lippia left Southington and moved to Florida where we started a paving business. Ten years later, in 1989, he decided to act on his continued passion for singing. That decision proved to be a life-changing one. Lippia has become a star and show headliner on the Las Vegas Strip, a troubadour doing national concert tours in a hundred locations each year, including in Canada, Latin America and Europe. Meanwhile, his home turf has offered him opportunities to perform with the Hartford Symphony at Talcott Mountain and the Bushnell Theatre. Described by one critic as

“a singer’s singer, a prominent professional American vocalist,” Lippia’s popular crooner-style vocalism is reminiscent of Frank Sinatra, though he is clear in saying: “I don’t do Sinatra. I don’t do Bobby Darin. I do myself, though my natural voice happens to be similar to Sinatra’s.” Good news for Lippia’s local friends and family: He will headline a benefit being held for his alma mater, St. Paul’s, at Waterbury’s Palace Theatre Thursday, May 8. The show is entitled: “Simply Sinatra.” With a hot, driving band behind him, Lippia moves from crisp, popping swing tunes to lush, poignant ballads. His repertoire brings the music and lyrics of Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, and Rodgers and Hart to new life and includes such standards as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “The Lady Is A Tramp,” “Mack The Knife,” “Summer Wind,” “That’s Life,” and

“The Best Is Yet To Come.” For ticket information, visit palacetheaterct.org/box-office or stevelippia.com. Lippia now lives in a corner of the valley in Las Vegas about 13 miles from the strip. He and his wife, Lori, active in the business side of his career, enjoy a peaceful domestic life, where they enjoy the privacy of their backyard and a pair of mini German Schnauzers, while Lippia is able to work at his love of gardening. His son Weston, 26, lives nearby. Lippia spoke of the stresses and rigors of stardom. “I was late to the business, so I had time to personally develop. I never had the same kind of pressures of a major star, and if I ever need reminding that I’m not a superstar, Lori provides it when I come home and she tells me to take out the garbage,” he quipped. It would seem fame and fortune have not changed the heart of this farm boy.

Clark said at the meeting that it’s not uncommon for this type of call to take three times as long and exhaust three times the resources. Clark said he wanted to look into possible cost reimbursement for rescue calls. Rescuing rock climbers requires specialized training, equipment and can lead to possible injuries. The associated costs should be paid by the climbers, he said. The fire board chairman, See Climbers / Page 7

Superintendent search continues By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Board of Education members aren’t saying much about the search for a new school superintendent. Applications were accepted until the end of March and interviews started last month, said Brian Goralski, the school board chairman. The goal is to name a superintendent in May. All nine members of the school board were contacted for comment on this story. Four responded to the request. None of those four would discuss how many candidates have been interviewed. “Because of the nature of the superintendent search and the focus on confidentially, until we name the superintendent, we’re going to maintain all information as confidential,” Goralski said. “It’s about respecting the confidentially of the applicants, that’s how we get the best pool of candidates.”

The position generated a lot of interest and a lot of qualified candidates, said Terry Lombardi, school board member. “We’re in the process of dwindling it down,” Lombardi said. Assistant Superintendent Karen Smith is serving as the interim superintendent after Joseph V. Erardi Jr. left to become school superintendent in Newtown. His last day was April 11. The school board hired two search consultants. Mary Broderick and George Goens, of the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education’s Search Services, have been assisting the school board with the application and interview process. “Our job is to make sure to hire best possible candidate for the role, so we’ll take the time necessary to do just that,” said school board member Zaya Oshana. “This is not a hire for short term, this is a long-term hire that has a long-term impact on the district and on the students.” In February, the consul-

tants had a series of nine focus groups, including teachers, parents, school administrators and civic leaders, to hear what they wished to see in the next superintendent. In March, they held another forum for others to voice their opinions. The information from all the groups was used by the consultants to create a profile of the next superintendent. “I think the board got really good direction from the focus groups as to what the community wanted,” said school board member Colleen Clark. “I think we’re leaning towards that model that the community said they wanted.” “I’m very happy with the profile that we’ve zeroed in on and we test ourselves against that profile,” Lombardi said. “It’s not only experience but it’s a fit within our community, that’s an important factor, the fit.”

of $158. A mill represents $1 in taxes for every $1,000 of assessed value. Board of Finance Chairman John Leary, who presented the budget to the council, said the tax increase should really be considered as being over two years because taxes did not go up last year. Leary said the budget was both effective and efficient. He also said Southington has a healthy long-term financial outlook with $14 million in its rainy day fund, a little over ten percent of the budget submitted, and only $60 million in debt, nine percent of its allowed amount. After Leary finished his presentation, five people spoke during the public comment period, four of whom expressed clear support for the budget. Board of Education Chairman Brian Goralski said this is also the first year the Board of Finance approved the Board of Education’s funding request without reductions. He said it demonstrated that Southington is a “place of collaboration.” However, Bob Brown, Southington Education Association president, pointed out that the education budget had already been trimmed by recently departed School Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi Jr. The Board of Education subsequently pared the figure down even more, he said. Re s i d e n t A r t h u r Cy r praised the Board of Finance for opting not to “red pen” either the general or education budgets that he said would enable to Southington to “move forward as the town of progress,” but he said he also hoped the Board of Education would abide by an informal agreement to contain its requested spending increase to 2 percent next year. Some school board members have characterized the 2 percent figure as a target rather a limit since the Board of Finance approved this year’s increase. After the public had its say, Chairman Michael Riccio gaveled the hearing closed. The Council is expected to formally consider the budget proposal at its May 12 meeting.

The theme this year was “What’s up with weather.” The team that used the most weather words throughout the board would receive a bottle of wine for each person. More than 200 people filled the room to help with the cause. “It’s fun, it’s encouraging and it’s for a good cause,” said Sarah Hudkins, of New Brit-

Hundreds of people hovered around Scrabble boards set up on tables throughout the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville April 24. They sifted through dozens of letters to try to formulate the words for the most points. It was the 12th annual Scrabble Challenge and Silent Auction to help raise funds for the Literacy Volunteers of Central Connecticut. Leonard Nelson, of New Britain, huddled around the board with his team. “Put an ‘s’ there for ‘stow,’” Nelson said, pointing at their Scrabble board. “I was just thinking that,” said Colleen Malley, one of his teammates from Burlington. Players participated in teams of six and 10, collaborating to come up with the best words to complete the board. Nelson and Malley’s board was filled a few minutes before the 25-minute timer ran out. “I think very highly of the event,” Nelson said. “We thought we did well last year and got beat by thousands of points,” he said, laughing. The Literacy Volunteers of Central Connecticut assists more than 300 adults with free literacy tutoring in Southington, New Britain, Middletown, Bristol, Berlin, Burlington, Cromwell, Durham, East Haddam, East Hampton, Haddam, Kensington, Marlborough, Middlefield, Plainville, and Portland. The organization was founded in 1978. Darlene Hurtado, the executive director, said the group has raised about $250,000 throughout the 12 years.

“We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the support of this event,” Hurtado said. “All of our classes are free and without fundraisers we couldn’t do it. We can’t depend on just grants.” First place won a $50 gift card to Tops Market, second was a $25 gift card to Friends Café, and third was a $10 gift card to Joey Garlic’s restaurant. “It’s cheating for a cause,” said Sue Smayda, executive director of the Southington Library and member of the literacy board. “They can buy extra letters and

Opinion Gold Key Dinner lifts the spirit Barmore, Bavone, the Zimmermans among the 2014 honorees SOUTHINGTON — The annual Gold Key Dinner never fails to inspire. So few enterprises can be classified as “win-win,” but the event that has transcended generations of state sports fans succeeds in honoring t h o s e wh o have enriched the fabric of the Connecticut sports scene Ken while helping ensure that it Lipshez will continue From the Lip for years to come. The Gold Key Dinner presently is the lone fund-raising mechanism of the Connecticut Sports Writers’ Alliance. The CSWA came on the scene in 1939 and held its first Gold Key Dinner in 1940. The dinner evolved into an event that the professional teams in New York City and Boston felt they couldn’t miss because they needed support from state fans. Famous athletes, managers and administrators lit up the event through the ’60s and into the ’70s. Slowly, the professional teams recognized that they no longer needed to make such a commitment to Connecticut and the CSWA turned its attention toward the colleges and high schools. As the 1900s turned to the 2000s, the nature of the sports writing fraternity changed, evolving to the point where sports news is cramped into 144-character Twitter notes. But the Dinner continues to See Lipshez / Page 31

Unitarians: freethinkers with a big social conscience Significant factions within ancient Christianity included several which revered Jesus and his teachings but didn’t view him as God. These included the Sabellians, Adoptionists and Arians. A tug-ofwar was intense until the Council of Nicaea (325) adopted Trinitarian theology, included in the Nicene Creed which is recited today in many churches. At the Council of Constantiople (381) the Ralph Lord Roy formulation of the doctrine of the Trinity Commentary was completed, and Emperor Theodosius I denounced all non-Trinitarians as heretics. As the name implies, Unitarianism rejects the Trinity. Here in the United States it initially developed out of Puritanism, partly in response to the Enlightenment which emphasized reason over revelation. It also was a backlash against the portrayal of human nature as inherently depraved, a central theme among early Calvinist settlers of New England. Unitarians dismissed the idea of “the Elect”, emphasizing instead the worth, dignity and equality of every human being. The movement had a heavy impact in the Boston area where seven of the first nine churches founded by the Puritans, including the Pilgrim church in Plymouth, aligned themselves with the

Unitarians. Ironically, the first parish to officially do so was King’s Chapel in downtown Boston, originally Episcopalian. It kept much of its own liturgical tradition, making changes in its Book of Common Prayer to reflect its new affiliation. By 1805, Unitarian ideas dominated at Harvard which has reflected a very liberal approach to religion for over 200 years. My own acquaintance with Unitarianism goes back to my teen years, and was intensified in 1953 when Beacon Press, affiliated with the Unitarians, published my first book, “Apostles of Discord”. The brilliant, feisty and later-renowned book editor, Jeannette Hopkins, then 29, was assigned by the publisher to work with me. Jeannette was an avid Unitarian, who had grown up in an evangelical church, and, when we weren’t at work, we would debate many issues, among them which of us knew more gospel hymns. When she died in 2011 at age 88 her Will left me an old gospel hymnal. She regarded traditional denominations as citadels of superstition, some more than others, which led to additional debate. Later, when she had joined Harcourt, Brace Publishers, she (quite by coincidence) became the editor for my third book, “Communism and the Churches”. I can’t resist mentioning another coincidence. After graduating from a teacher’s college in upstate New York, Jeannette’s mother

had taught for a year in Swanton, Vt., my hometown. One day Jeannette sent me a 1914 picture of Swanton High School’s four-member faculty and student body of about 50 teenagers. There on the front row was Howard Roy. then 15, who became my Dad! Incidentally. From 1980-89 Jeannette was director of the Wesleyan University Press in Middletown. I often recall her with gratitude, a truly remarkable woman. Early Unitarianism in this country generally was viewed as liberal Protestantism with a particular reverence for Jesus without according him worship. On Sunday mornings, in many of their churches today, you may hear selections from the Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism, Buddhist Sutras, a Native American poem, or perhaps excerpts from an ancient classic or a contemporary novel. When hymn tunes are familiar, the words probably have been edited. Members of the same congregation may range from progressive Christians to humanists, often a word that implies atheism. Interfaith couples may find common ground in Unitarianism. Emphasis is placed upon such social issues as peace, racial and gender equality, economic justice, ecological concerns, and the separation of church and state. In 1961 the Unitarians and Universalists joined to form the Unitarian See Roy / Page 25

Expanded don’t-call list, fuel protections advance By Susan Haigh Associated Press

HARTFORD — An expanded “donot-call” registry that includes text messaging and new protections for heating oil customers were among several consumer protection bills that cleared the Connecticut Senate April 22 and will head to the House for final action. One bill that would add unwanted text messages to the list of prohibited activities under the state’s do-not-call

law unanimously passed the Senate. Sen. Paul Doyle, D-Wethersfield, co-chairman of the General Assembly’s General Law Committee, noted that text messages have become more popular over the past five to 10 years and that some consumers are getting charged per text, even for unsolicited ones from telemarketers and other companies. “It could cost money, in addition to being an annoyance,” Doyle said. The bill also increases penalties for registry violations from $11,000

to $20,000 per violation, and requires telephone and telecommunications companies to notify customers twice a year about telemarketing prohibitions, as well as how customers can sign up for the registry and how to file a complaint with the state Department of Consumer Protection if they receive unwanted text messages. Also April 22, the Senate unanimously passed a bill that bars fuel heating dealers from offering a preSee Senate / Page 19

paid guaranteed price plan from Nov. 1 to March 31. Doyle said that’s the time period when heating dealers have become financially strapped and taken advantage of their customers. “We are basically prohibiting the sale of these plans at the last minute, in the middle of the season,” Doyle said. The bill stems from the case of Ace Oil Co. in Meriden, which stopped making oil deliveries last year to customers, even though they had prepaid for fuel. Ace’s owner has filed for bankruptcy, citing nearly $3 million in debts. Half of that was owed to prepaid customers. Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, D-Meriden, said she had constituents tell her they had

lost $1,900 to $3,700 after the company closed. Some, she said, were elderly people on fixed budgets. “It was heartbreaking not to be able to recoup them on the spot,” she said. Sen. Kevin Witkos, R-Canton, the ranking senator on the General Law Committee, said the bill also clarifies language that allows dealers to charge an additional fee for heating fuel deliveries of less than 100 gallons. Currently, the law says “not more than 100 gallons,” which Witkos said has led to some people being charged extra for a 100-gallon delivery. The Senate also voted to require chain pharmacies with discount rewards programs to inform customers, in plain language, they are waiving their health privacy rights if they sign up.

Grad rates show achievement gap HARTFORD (AP) — A national report on high school graduation rates shows an achievement gap continues to exist in Connecticut between poor students and those who are more affluent. The report released Monday by the education advocacy group America’s Promise Alliance shows Connecticut’s graduation rate went from 80.9 percent in 2003 to 85 percent in 2012.

But it also notes that the graduation rate among economically disadvantaged students is at 70 percent. Stefan Pryor, the state’s education commissioner, says state data shows Connecticut is making progress toward closing the gaps, working closing with the state’s lowest performing districts and schools on programming to encourage students to stay in and succeed in school.

State OKs wind power rules, ends moratorium By Stephen Singer Associated Press

HARTFORD — Connecticut lawmakers broke an impasse over energy policy April 22, approving wind power regulations that end a moratorium on new turbines producing clean energy. The legislature’s Regulation Review Committee approved rules that require setbacks, address concerns

over noise and shadows created by spinning turbine blades, stipulate how siting officials may measure the height of wind turbines and provide other technical details. For example, a wind power developer must submit a visual impact report that analyzes how each of the proposed wind turbines sites is visible along with any alternative locations. A 2011 law called for the

state Siting Council to adopt regulations governing wind power. But the Regulation Review Committee had rejected several proposed rules since late last year. Legislators discussed concerns that regulations for a waiver for noise are ambiguous, whether money should be placed in escrow to handle abandoned See Wind / Page 34

Roy From Page 18

have no UU parish within easy traveling distance. More important, perhaps, millions of Americans, clergy and laity alike, certainly among mainline Protestants, find intellectual freedom and theological diversity within their own denominations.. Any list of Unitarians and Universalists contains a long and impressive catalog of creative Americans. An abbreviated sampling would include Paul Revere, John and John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Samuel F. B. Morse, Clara Barton, Horace Greeley, Julia Ward Howe, Louisa May Alcott, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alexander Graham Bell, P. T. Barnum, Susan B. Anthony, William Howard Taft, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Adlai Stevenson, Linus Pauling, Frank Lloyd Wright, Christopher Reeve, Pete Seeger and many more.

Universalist Church, The two groups shared many principles and practices. Both held non-liturgical worship services and embraced a congregational form of parish government.

Four sisters to be confirmed at St. Dominic By E. Richard Fortunato Special to The Citizen

Southington resident Joel Karabienikoff is very proud of his four daughters. The eldest three, Abigail, Breanna and Caroline are triplets. Pamela was born a year later. Dad beams with such pride sharing that his girls each held honor student status straight through school. The lives of triplets, and a sister with triplet sisters, is no doubt filled with interesting experiences and stories,

especially given the higher degree of attention, observation and curiosity they can draw. It seems natural, therefore, to be especially interesting that the four siblings will receive Confirmation together on the same day at St. Dominic Church this month. The sisters’ grandmother, Veronica Stankowski, is thrilled the young women are being confirmed together. “I am so very proud of the girls and their many accomplishments,” she said. Joel Karabienikoff, who sings in the St. Dominic choir, pointed out that although his daughters have common interests, they are quite different when it comes to personality and interests. Abbie is an ardent basketball player, a member of the Platt High School team. Breanna loves singing in the school chorus. One of Caroline’s keenest interests is

youth minister Bev Montana, said: “These four girls are amazing ... Each is unique in themselves, so different from one another. The one thing they have in common is a generous spirit of giving. They have such a willingness to help whenever and wherever needed. When asked to assist with any task, each, without a second of hesitation, says, ‘Yes, sure. I’ll help.’ ”

Sports Riding the Freidt train Junior pitches, bats Blue Knights over Spartans By Sean Krofssik Special to The Citizen

SOUTHINGTON — Junior Kendra Friedt has already authored a perfect game and a no hitter this spring for the Southington softball team. On Monday, she did something no other pitcher had done so far this season: Beat Maloney. The right-handed flamethrower threw a three-hit shutout and smashed a tworun single in the bottom of the fourth inning to lead the Blue Knights to a 2-0 CCC interdivisional victory at home. “Our team did well just getting the outs and then manufacturing the two runs,” Friedt said. Both squads entered the showdown undefeated — Maloney a spotless 8-0 and Southington 7-0 — and the clash lived up to the billing. The potent Southington offense, which had been averaging better than 12 runs a game, mustered seven hits — all singles — against Maloney sophomore pitcher Paige Mickens-Uliase (8-1). “We held off at swinging at bad pitches,” Southington coach Davina Hernandez said. “In my opinion, that is what makes or breaks a close game. Kendra was able to get them to bite on some of those high pitches and we swung at those early in the game, but as the game went on we started to lay off.” Southington’s decisive fourth-inning rally began with a single up the middle by Sydney Ferrante. Natalie Wadolowski then dropped down a bunt between the See Softball / Page 33

Blue Knight Notes Baseball Southington 7, Farmington 1: Southington ace Joe Rivera tossed five shutout innings, allowing just two hits, as the Blue Knights rolled to the CCC West win at Fontana Field. The UConn-bound senior fanned seven and walked two. He had success at the plate as well, going 2-for-4 with a double. Other offensive standouts for Southington were Joe Daigle (2-for-4, 2 doubles), Adam Wilson (2-for-3, double) and Nick Calabrese (2 RBIs). The Blue Knights improved to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the division. Trevor Hooth gave up six runs, five earned, in three innings in suffering the loss for Farmington (2-3, 0-3 West). Softball Southington 24, Farmington (5 innings): In the CCC West, Southington throttled Farmington in a game at Tunxis Mead Park halted after five innings. Blue Knights pitcher Kendra Freidt, two days removed from a no-hitter, had a perfect game and Sydney Ferrante blasted two home runs. Freidt struck out 11 in crafting her perfect game. Offensively, along with Ferrante’s power, the Knights rode the bat and legs of Lauren Zazzaro. She banged out four hits in five trips, stole six bases and scored five runs. Rachel Dube and Caroline Burke both went 3-for-4. Dube homered. Burke stole four bases.

Risk management training program a success Press Release Re p re s e n tat ive s f ro m seven different school districts converged on the CIAC offices April 22 and 23 to take part in the Risk Management Training and Assessment Pilot Program provided by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security. Connecticut was the second

of three states to offer this pilot training program intended to help school districts address the risk management concerns associated with interscholastic and after-school activities. With school representatives including superintendents, principals, athletics directors and school resource officers in attendance the

training program detailed policies and procedures schools could put in place to help prevent and respond to incidents in after school programs. The in-depth training program led by retired FBI instructor David Corderman and Jeff Stonebreaker a Lieutenant with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Or-

Aidan Quigley of St. Joseph-Trumbull will be attending the Ithaca College Roy H. Park School of Communications, from which he earned the Park Scholarship. Thus, the cross country and distance runner requested that the CSWA channel the funds earmarked for him to others in need. The inspiration of those who have overcome life-threatening roadblocks and the munificence of a young man who chooses to share his bounty left a roomful of 300 with much to contemplate, particularly after the tragic news that came out of Milford on Friday morning.

The 2014 Gold Key winners were UConn soccer coach Ray Reid, former Boston Marathon winner Amby Burfoot, ex-New Britain Rock Cats executive Bill Dowling, West Haven High football coach Ed McCarthy and Branford High field hockey coach Cathy McGuirk. Locally, father and son Maloney High football statisticians Les and Bret Zimmerman received a John Wentworth Good Sport Award, emblematic of a commitment to sports in the community. Cheshire High volleyball coach Sue Bavone was feted as Doc McInerney Coach of the Year in a Female Sport. Southington High quarterback Stephen Barmore received the Hal Levy Male High School Athlete of the Year award. Hopefully that sets the stage for you, because what happened on that stage at the Aqua Turf for five hours on Sunday ran the gamut of emotions and left an indelible imprint on those in attendance. The Bob Casey Courage Award generates the most poignant moments. Andrew Haraghey, a senior at Fermi-Enfield afflicted by cerebral palsy caused by viral encephalitis as an infant, stressed how motivated he was to become a competitive skier when people said he couldn’t do it. He fell just short of qualifying for the U.S. Paralympics team that went to Sochi, but has been competing successfully since he was 10. Morgan Bjarno, a two-sport athlete at Glastonbury, harnessed the resolve to conquer acute lymphocytic leukemia. Listening to their stories touched Burfoot enough to pay heartfelt tribute to them in his speech, which moistened his eyes when he stated that the 36,000 who competed in the recent Boston Marathon “took back the streets” from those who inflicted terror at the finish line

Southington was 1-for-2 perch at second base, was sig-

Lauren Zazzaro was nabbed by Graham on a pitch-out after a one-out single in the fifth. “I’m proud how we played, win or lose,” Graham said. “I wanted to win and we all tried to work for the win. We are a good team, but they are a good team, too.” Virgulto finished the game 2-for-3 with two bunt singles for Maloney (8-1). The shortstop was bunted to second after reaching in the first inning, but Friedt fanned the next two hitters to end the

But two strikeouts and a flyout ended kept Graham stuck on second base with the side retired. Friedt was robbed of another RBI in the bottom of the sixth inning when Virgulto made a diving catch with a runner at third to keep the score at 2-0.

The Spartans travel to Bristol Eastern this afternoon at 3:45 for a CCC South game moved up a day by the rainy midweek forecast. “I was very happy with the way we played,” Maloney coach Scott Aresco said. “You have to play perfect against a team like this. I don’t see this team losing for the rest of the year, probably 24 or 25 games. They are a solid team defensively and Kendra single-handedly beat us at the plate and in the circle.”

Gwen Hess of the Department of Homeland Security was also in attendance for the first day of the program. The pilot programs, with the support of Assa Abloy, are taking place in three states with Connecticut and Mississippi having already hosted programs and Indiana serving as the third site in the coming weeks. There is hope the training will be widely available in the future to provide the valuable training and information to as many school districts as possible.

man of the Energy and Technology Committee and a member of the Regulation Review Committee, called the new rules a “sensible policy” that encourages competition and lower costs. “The effective moratorium on wind development prevented that technology from competing freely, but I expect we will soon see new projects move forward,” he said. Connecticut is generally not seen as a top-tier source of wind power. The state has no mountains to produce wind corridors and no access to the Atlantic Ocean, which powers stiff winds. As a result, wind power is not expected to become a major source of energy in the state, but developers see potential to serve many consumers. It’s also important for the Malloy administration, which has emphasized renewable energy as part of a strategy that also calls for a

huge expansion of natural gas pipelines. The lack of rules has stalled proposals, including a plan to build four to eight wind turbines in eastern Connecticut. Fair Wind for Connecticut, a Litchfield County group that has sought regulations, said the new rules are not perfect. For example, it criti-

cized a setback distance of 1.5 times the height of an industrial wind turbine from property lines that it says would allow turbines too close to homes. Still, Fair Wind praised the rules for providing new protections for residents and homeowners.
