Community to gather for anti-drug rally By Julie Sopchak

The Southington Citizen

The Southington Drug Task Force will hold its 23rd annual Red Ribbon Rally Tuesday, Oct. 15. As it has been for years,

that day, the Town Green will be flooded with students, families, and friends, c h a n t i n g a d r u g- f r e e mantra. Trish Kenefick, coordinator for the event, said the rallies draw upwards

of 400 people, with several organizations, like STEPS, school and town sports teams, peer advocates, cheerleaders, Boy Scouts, dance teams, and more, See Rally / Page 4

From being a master gardener, to a member of the Orchard Valley Garden Club and Southington Land Trust, to facilitating the Southington community gardens, one could say Uta Zickfeld certainly has a green thumb. So it’s not too surprising that the National Wildlife Federation named her home garden a Certified Wildlife Habitat, a garden space that improves habitat for wildlife by providing essential elements. “It’s a very nice thing to have happen to you,” Zickfeld said of the recognition. “I’ve always tried to do that for my See Habitat / Page 11

After serving on the Board of Park Commissioners for the past 35 years, 79-year-old Joe LaPorte felt it was time for him to take a step back and will not seek reappointment. He doesn’t want to call it retirement, though, just “giving up his seat” for fresh new faces and ideas. “I would have been 85 years old if I was appointed,” LaPorte said of potentially serving out another term. In 1968, 45 years ago, LaPorte became a volunteer coach for his son’s little league. From there, his participation in community events “evolved.” He helped start and manage the Southington Youth Soccer League and was one of the founders of the Southington Western Little League. “It’s something I truly enjoyed because I was always involved in recreational activities with the kids and with youth sports and all the sports,” LaPorte said. “Basically, that’s what the park board’s function was, to look after the programs.” Those who have worked alongside LaPorte on the Park

Board said they were sad to see him go. LaPorte has been someone Mike Fasulo looked up to when he first joined the park board years ago, Fasulo said. Fasulo has been on the board for about eight years with a few breaks in between serving. “He was the guy I always went to for advice,” Fasulo said. “He will be sorely missed. He had a lot of experience and knew a lot.” David Lapreay, director of recreation, also says he looked to LaPorte for advice. “He’s been a great help for me when I was hired, going to him at times with certain questions.” Lapreay said. “His knowledge of everything going on in town, it’s been a good asset.” Besides his work in youth sports and on the park board, LaPorte is a former director of Bread for Life, served two terms on the Town Council in the 1970s, and plays a vital role in organizing the annual Italian Festival on Center Street. He’s also been involved with the YMCA for years and often shows his support for local charitable events.

LaPorte From Page 2

Fasulo and Lapreay said they both will remember LaPorte for his recent work on the construction of a pavilion at the town-owned drive-in theater on 935 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike. It was a three-year project. LaPorte led the project which was complete with bathrooms, a concession area, and surround sound. It was ready for use in the summer of 2012. It cost $450,000 and LaPorte’s work involved seeking donations from local businesses and organizations to get it finished “That was a huge project,” Fasulo said. “He was greatly

Rally responsible for that.” “He went above and beyond getting donors to do that work on the pavilion,” Lapreay said. “I think everybody knows when he gets something he’s going to finish it.” While LaPorte spearheaded the project and said it was a “big accomplishment,” he couldn’t help but thank the volunteers, the park board, and the Southington community for all their help. As for his future involvement in town, LaPorte said he’s not done helping and will continue with his other responsibilities. “I’m not going anywhere,” LaPorte said. “Just one less meeting a month.”

attending. “I really feel because we have so many people there, that the positive message will get out to everyone else,” Kenefick said. Rev. Victoria Triano, who will emcee the Red Ribbon Rally, said the event gives her hope for the future. “You see our young people ready to take a stand against substance abuse,” Triano said. Kenefick said the most recent survey in town revealed that 58 percent of 11th graders don’t drink alcohol. Unfortunately, that leaves a big chunk of high school juniors who do indulge. “I think that’s a really high percent,” Kenefick said. Additionally, Kenef ick said Southington police officers shared details of substance-related arrests in town in September. There were 23 total, including seven made in a school zone. “We really feel this is a problem that needs to be ad-

dressed,” Kenefick said. A mainstay at the Red Ribbon Rally is when students go on stage and say what they would rather do instead of drugs. “It’s becoming hip to be drug-free,” Triano said. “And that is really the point of changing the culture within our community.” Triano and Kenefick said they have seen tangible evidence that the rallies are working. Kenefick said she receives e-mails and notes from students who have moved on to college and high school saying the rally affected them. “They still remember the event and the impacts of it,” she said. Kenefick’s most poignant story, however, was that of a man who became a doctor. He told Kenefick he was successful because of the rallies, which helped him carve out a successful path in life. “I think we’re seeing more and more kids having the courage to publicly say ‘I’m not going to get involved in

substance abuse,’” Triano said. Triano said the rally isn’t just about diminishing risky behavior, it’s also about promoting positive, esteem-building activities. “We stand for that and we encourage our kids to choose something better,” Triano said. For the second year, there will also be a poster drawing contest for students. Entries should feature a positive, anti-drug message. Members of the Southington High School Key Club will judge the entrees and select a winner. Attendees of the rally will also be able to sign a large red ribbon to pledge to stay drug-free. The ribbon will be presented to the Town Council and displayed at the Southington Public Library. The rally will be held on the Town Green Tuesday, Oct. 15, 6 to 7:15 p.m. If it rains, the event will be moved to Derynoski Elementary School, 240 Main St.

Town leaders read from their favorite banned books By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Twenty-eight people gathered in the café area of the town library Oct. 3 to hear excerpts from 12 previously banned books during an event promoting the freedom to read. It is the second time the library has hosted an event marking national Banned Books Week. Executive Library Director Sue Smayda said many books were challenged or banned to protect others, particularly children, from what was thought by some to be harmful information. The town library highlights these books to show the importance of diversity of thought, she added. “Any good library has something in it to offend everyone,” Smayda said, adding that the freedom to read allows people to develop their own viewpoints. Town officials, the school superintendent, teachers, library board members and other community leaders read books that were once banned. Each chose the book they wanted to share. For Town Manager Garry Brumback, it was “The Call of the Wild” by Jack London published in 1903. “This book I’m very fond of,” he said. It was banned

in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger, published in 1951. He wanted to read it because of the impact it made on his son. “It took a boy who could not stand reading and turned him into a reader,” Sciota said. It was banned because of the language and actions by the main character, who was an adolescent. Teacher of the year Linda Reilly was ready for her reading. Wearing jean overalls, a black and red plaid button-up shirt, and a blue cap she was dressed the part for the book “The Great Gilly Hopkins” by Katherine Paterson. “Hi y’all I’m Gilly and I’m 11,” Reilly shouted in a southern accent. “I’m the great Gilly Hopkins!” Other books that were read included the “Adventures of Town Manager Garry Brumback reads an excerpt from once banned book “The Call of the Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Wild” during a Freedom to Read event at the Southington Library.

recreational resource available to the public at no charge.” And for those who have already discovered the beauty of the trail, it’s a no-brainer that it’s underappreciated. “The Metacomet Trail is Connecticut’s hidden gem,” claims Ross Hart, a Plantsville resident and volunteer for the Connecticut Forest and Parks Association. “It traverses through steep trap rock to some of the best views in the state, and we are lucky enough to have it right in our backyard.” As the leaves change color and the days become shorter, we are left with little time to enjoy the natural beauty that is so easily available to us. Take the challenge, and let the Metacomet Trail lead you into tranquility and away from the hassle of schedule. Be a part of the astounding historical, natural beauty that exists all around you; all you must do is take the time.

Council candidates support Plantsville Renaissance By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

It’s been a few years since the idea of improving the aesthetics in the downtown area of Plantsville first came up. Because of a lack of funding it has yet to come to fruition. Tow n Cou n c i l ca n d i dates reached for comment recently agreed that implementing the proposed Plantsville Renaissance project should attract more business and people downtown and supported the efforts. “I think if we did it properly we could see a huge return in our investment down there and could take off some pressure in West Street and Queen Street and spread economic developments around town,” said Chris Kelley, a Democrat. “I think the town has to use the economic development policy to focus on the areas and bring businesses and more people in those areas to keep them alive and well,” said Republican incumbent Cheryl Lounsbury. “We

should work with our legislatures to get money to do some renaissance work.” Plans for the Plantsville Renaissance include the addition of decorative light-

ing, a scenic overlook of the Quinnipiac River, benches and brick paving. With the changes the hope is that it will attract more people to the area and in turn

more businesses will want to establish there. It’s estimated the project will cost about $1 million. The town was trying to obtain a Small Town Economic Assistance

Program grant from the state for the work but hasn’t had luck yet. More than 10 years ago the same type of work was done to the downtown area of Southington. “We’re extremely hopeful that it will come, we’re just waiting for the grant,” said Art Secondo, the president of the Chamber of Commerce. “We are working on it. It’s not a dead issue.” Democratic incumbent Chris Palmieri said he supports the revitalization and it is a good move to help the average homeowner in town. “The more we can get people to invest in our local restaurants, businesses, the better off we are,” Palmieri said. Re p u bl i c a n c a n d i d ate Victoria Triano said both downtowns are “the heart of the community” and that more needs to be done to help secure funding to start the project in Plantsville. “Finances of course are always an issue,” Triano said.

Bread for Life didn’t mind police stakeout By Jesse Buchanan

Special to The Citizen

Bread for Life’s board chairman, William McDougall, said he didn’t object to police surveillance of the lunch program on Main Street earlier this month but disagreed that police have ever been called to the meal kitchen. The Planning and Zoning Commission is considering Bread for Life’s plan to move its operations adjacent to Derynoski School on Main Street. Commission Chairman Michael DelSanto asked police to study the possible impact of the meal kitchen, which operates at 76 Main St. A police officer watched the kitchen over two days and found between 15 and 23 people getting meals. Police said one of the patrons was a reg-

istered sex offender and that some people remained at the site after being served lunch. Police also checked their records for incidents at the previous Bread for Life address and found one complaint of an intoxicated person in the period from Jan. 1, 2009, to Sept. 4, 2013. McDougall said Oct. 1 that incident didn’t occur while Bread for Life was at 145 Main St. “There has never been an incident with our kitchen where the police were called,” he said. “We were not tenants of that facility when that call was made.” Co n c e r n s ove r m oving the meal kitchen next to Derynoski School have stemmed from ignorance of Bread for Life’s operation, according to McDougall.

“The whole problem is a misconception about our clientele,” he said. McDougall has invited anyone with concerns to visit the meal program which provides free lunches to the homeless, poor and homebound. Thus far, he said only School Superintendent Joseph Erardi has stopped by. Loitering would not be permitted at the new location, McDougall said, and patrons would have to leave the property after lunch program hours. There’s only so much that can be done about loitering, however. “People loiter in the library and they loiter in the Town Green,” McDougall said. The Southington Library is across the street from Derynoski School. McDougall deferred com-

ments about the registered sex offender to his lawyer, Anthony Denorfia. DelSanto said it’s not uncommon for the commission to have police investigate possible traffic issues or other safety concerns associated with proposed development. At times, officers are assigned to count cars or people using a site. Board of Education mem-

bers and residents have objected to allowing Bread for Life to operate next to an elementary school. Board members cited safety concerns, increased traffic and the possibility that meal kitchen patrons would cut across school property. A public input session is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 15 at Town Hall, 75 Main St., at 7 p.m.

would lead to the pollution of the Quinnipiac River. Applause erupted throughout the room after he concluded his comments, which lasted more than 30 minutes. The commission eventually approved the application 4-1 with two abstentions. Commission member Chris Borowy acknowledged the high degree of “public sensitivity” toward the application but said the commission has a “limited charge” and can only consider wetlands-related issues, not matters that are the purview of other town commissions. Albanese agreed, adding that the commission can not apply “zoning parameters” in

its review process, she said. Albanese said the application’s opponents did not present sufficient evidence that the development plans would have adverse effects upon the wetlands, she said. The development still needs approval from the Planning and Zoning Commission, Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vice Chairman James Sullivan pointed out. The commission added a condition that the applicant must establish conservation easements on the lots located on the property that contain wetlands.

garden.” Zickfeld’s nearly-one acre space is a nature lover’s dream, with three rain barrels, crabapple trees, winterberry bushes, compost, a pond, coneflowers, and several other wildflowers. Also, the garden provides food sources and an organic habitat for any creatures who want to come hang out. Zickfeld had to apply to NWF to be noticed. Now that she has the distinction, she said she will be more in tune to the NWF, which will provide her with tips and other guidelines for improving her garden. “I can get some more info

on what I can do to make it even better,” Zickfeld said. “Providing a home for wildlife in our communities is the demonstration of a healthy and active eco-system,” David Mizejewski, NWF naturalist said. “There is no more rewarding way to stay connected to nature right outside your door.” To be considered as a certified wildlife habitat, certain criteria must be met. Food and water sources, shelter, and places for animals to raise their young are part of the equation. Zickfeld said her garden is entirely organic, and she never uses any harmful pesticide sprays or pellets. She said it breaks her heart to see other people use them, only to find dead birds shortly thereafter.

In her garden, Zickfeld sees all kinds of critters, from hummingbirds, to frogs and an assortment of furry, four-legged creatures. She is also fond of the decoration component of gardening, as well as the opportunity to stock up on homegrown vegetables. “Once my children were out of college and they were kind of moving away, I said now it’s time for me. So I’m doing it,” she said about curating her garden. Zickfeld still takes gardening classes because of the different paths that can be explored. She said she enjoys the opportunity to learn more and share her knowledge with other members of the garden club.

“We’ve seen some very successful grants that have come into the community for specific areas. The renaissance projects in both downtown Plantsville and Southington are perfect for receiving grant money to help us along. It is very important for us to do that.”

The Southington Citizen | southingtoncitizen.com

While candidates agreed that the work needs to be complete and will help the area, they have different ideas of how the area, including downtown Southington that was beautified more than 10 years ago, should be maintained after renewal. “We need to look at that and see if a maintenance program was put together for it,” said Republican candidate Paul Champagne.

he “would like to be an active part in the maintenance” if he is elected. Democratic candidate Dennis Conroy said he hopes with any renovations that the “village look” would be maintained. He also suggested changes to improve traffic flow to maintain the areas. “Maybe there’s a little work on roads with coordination of signal with the state Department of Transportation,” Conroy said. “I think that’s a primary issue.” Democratic incumbent Dawn Miceli said she would like to see both downtowns use decorative way-finding signs to direct visitors to key amenities. “This would help enhance and maintain this as a destination location,” said Miceli. “It really adds to the aesthetics of the community and it also has purpose and is also practical.” Republican candidate Tom Lombardi said investing in the downtown area will “attract quality tenants” and by attracting tenants it brings in

Lisa Johnson, execu tive director of the StanleyWhitman House will share her expertise on the trial of accused Connecticut witch, Mary Barnes; and Dr. Larry Goodheart will recount the stories of eleven people put to death for witchcraft in Connecticut.

Opinion Letters to editor

Lutz for Board of Ed. To the editor: We are pleased to hear that Bill Lutz is running for a seat on the board of education on the Democratic ticket. His successful teaching career at Notre Dame High School as well as 16 years of service on the Meriden and Berlin boards of education make him an ideal candidate. He has also been an active member of the Southington Education Foundation and served as its president. In all his endeavors he has always put students first. A vote for Bill is a vote for the children of our community. Dottie Drechsler Southington Back Lombardi To the editor: I h ave k n o w n To m Lombardi his entire life. He is a person of the highest integrity and moral character. He is bright, articulate, and he

knows and understands the issues we face in Southington. I am most impressed with his devotion to our town. He strives to make Southington the best place to live, to raise our children, and to work. Southington needs young and invigorating individuals who are problem solvers. That is who Tom Lombardi is. He represents all we desire in a future leader. He has my vote for Town Council. I hope he gets yours. Nancy Chiero Southington

betterment of our Southington children is exemplary. Terry is exactly the person Southington citizens need in this integral position where crucial decisions directly effect the future of our school district. It is with great pleasure and sincerity that I endorse Terry Lombardi for the position of Board of Education member. Linda Clock Southington

I would like to thank the Republican chairmen of all three boards for their leadership and guidance. We need to continue this leadership as we face continuing difficult times. Sandra Micalizzi Southington Help a stray To the editor: The weather is getting cooler and soon the snow will be flying. It’s time to think about the stray cat that’s been hanging around your neighborhood all summer. If it’s friendly, meaning you can pick it up and put it on your lap, then try and find a real home for it. Ask friends, coworkers, neighbors, relatives, the nurses and assistants at your doctor’s office; everyone! Or you can go online and contact one of the many rescue groups

in the state to see if they have an opening. If it’s not friendly, but happy living outside (a.k.a., feral), borrow a trap and get it fixed so there aren’t any freezing cold kittens this winter. Please get your own pet fixed as well. There are many low cost options such as HOPE Clinic in Waterbury or the mobile van (1-888-for-team). The state also provides vouchers for qualif ied residents. And if you know a cat living outside, consider creating a winter shelter for it. YouTube has many videos on simple but effective shelters you can build. Please don’t wait until it’s too late because although it may not be “your” cat, it’s one of God’s creatures and needs your help. You wouldn’t let a stray dog freeze outside in the cold, so don’t let that stray cat either. Cindy Mulhearn Southington

Health reform measures pushing Conn. to innovate By Susan Haigh Associated Press

WALLINGFORD (AP) — While Connecticut embraced setting up a health insurance exchange and expanding Medicaid eligibility faster than many other places, the state has lagged behind when it comes to modernizing how health care is delivered to patients.

But with the new health care overhaul law and a growing push in the state to cut costs while improving patient care, Connecticut is now moving toward a streamlined and better-coordinated, patient-centered system of medical treatment. “Connecticut has been a little bit slow to adopt many of these things, but I see it hap-

pening very quickly over the next five years,” said Ken Lalime, CEO of the new nonprofit health insurance company HealthyCT. The Wallingford-based HealthyCT offers small group and individual plans in the state’s new online insurance exchange, known as Access Health CT, as well as outside the exchange.

The trout are on their way. The DEEP says that they have began their autumn stocking of trout, which is good news for local fishermen, especially those that like to fish our own Black Pond in Meriden. The ongoing trout stocking will continue right through mid-October with about 29,000 trophy (greater than 12 inches in length) and adult (9-10 inch trout) going into 23 lakes and ponds and 14 rivers and streams, including 12 of the Trout Management Areas (TMA) and eight trout parks. As most of you already know, trout parks are maintained to enhance fishing opportunities for families and novice anglers and are easily accessible with picnic areas and other amenities nearby. Properly used, they are great spots to take a family to during these early autumn days while the foliage is in a change to fall mode. And, sad to say, there are a few shallow sports that use these trout parks to prove to the world what great fishermen they are because they seemingly have the ability to catch and release these newly stocked trout at will, while some of the beginning young fishermen look on knowing they would be happy to simply catch their two trout limit. Approximately 29,000 adult trout will be released this fall, of which 12,800 are trophy-sized brown trout and the remaining 6,200 trout will be adult rainbow trout. The Farmington TMA has already received its annual Labor Day stocking with the release of 2,000 large brown trout just prior to the Labor Day weekend. These fish were stocked into sections of the Farmington River TMA area from the Goodwin (Hogback) Dam to the old bridge abutments just below the Route 219 Bridge in New Hartford to the Route 177 Bridge in Unionville. Among other TMAs being stocked this fall are two areas on the Housatonic River, which is a beautiful spot to fish in the autumn. The DEEP

will be releasing a total of 9,000 trout into the Housy: 1,000 large brown trout, 5,000 rainbow trout and 3,000 “yearling” (small 5-7 inch) trout and 2,500 rainbow trout going into the Bull’s Bridge TMA section of the Housatonic River. The DEEP says that the large brown trout are intended to augment the population of holdover trout in the river this fall, while the rainbow trout and yearling browns should enhance the holdover population next spring. For those of you who might not know, the Housatonic River is a very popular fly-fishing river and it also holds a decent population of small-mouth bass. I have seen hardcore fly fishermen on the Housatonic in the dead of winter fishing for trout. It is that popular. A number of years ago, while on a bear hunting trip to the Grand Lake Stream area of Maine, I ran into a Maine fly fishing guide. I was amazed when he told me that the Housatonic River in Connecticut was on his “Bucket List” of best places to fly fish in New England. Fishermen are reminded that fishing in all TMA during the fall is catch-and-release only. Trout parks have a two-fish-per-day creel limit. Fishing regulations constantly vary on the many bodies of water and the DEEP advises fishermen to use their 2013 CT Angler’s Guide to make sure they are in compliance with the varying regulations. Trout parks that will be stocked are Black Rock Pond, Chatfield Hollow, Day Pond, Mohegan Park Pond, Natchaug River, Valley Falls Park Pond, Wharton Brook and Wolfe Park. Trout Management Areas (TMA) to be stocked are Bull’s Bridge on the Housatonic River, Farmington River, Hammonasset River, Housatonic River, Mianus River, Mill River, Moosup River, Salmon River, Saugatuck River, Sleeping Giant (Mill River), Willimantic River and the Yantic River. Other rivers and streams are the Hammonasset River,

A drizzly but exciting day for apple fest parade By Farrah Duffany

When you go away, I’d rather STAY HOME, and sleep in our bed, where it smells like you, than go to that crowded kennel, where the other dogs bully me.

For the 13 years he has lived in Southington, Alier has come to the festival regularly. He recalls missing the parade only about two times. Each year he brings his grandsons, Jose and Uzion Falero, of Manchester, to see the parade. Costumed characters — Batman, Spider-Man, Elmo and others — ran out to say hi to the children sitting alongside the road. Two hours after the parade began, the last group passed by, dressed in Halloween costumes, skipping, running and jumping.

stocked salmon, I am aware of their thrill of catching them. Many years ago, there was a pay-to-fish spot in Monroe called Loch Day Hatchery that had Coho and Atlantic salmon in their pond as well as trout. The thrill of a salmon taking a fly or a lure is something you will never forget once you experience it. Loch Day also supplied trout and salmon to any organization that wanted to purchase them for stocking purposes, and the Meriden Rod & Gun Club had them in their trout pond for a couple of years. At that time, the Meriden

Friday, October 11, 2013

club was also involved in a city-sponsored stocking program. We stocked some Coho salmon into Crescent Lake up in Giuffrida Park here in Meriden. Unfortunately, the owner of Loch Day Hatchery and Fishing Pond sold out to a private owner and the business was discontinued. It’s really too bad that more salmon fishing opportunities are not available to Connecticut anglers. However, there are places in Connecticut that you can fish for these salmon. The Inland Fisheries has already released 300 salmon into the Naugatuck River and Mount Tom Pond and will have released another 300 salmon into the Shetucket River and

C A R I N G

Crystal Lake in Ellington as you read this. To their credit, even though the Connecticut River Atlantic Salmon Restoration Program was discontinued in 2012 because of storm damage to the hatchery and low returns of salmon each year, the salmon stocking still prevails. The DEEP has developed a new “Legacy Program” to maintain this popular recreational fishery and to also preserve the unique and potentially important strain of southern Atlantic salmon that had been developed during the restoration effort. The group of salmon that were recently released weighed 2-6 pounds each with more stockings yet to come. In the Naugatuck,

Housatonic and Shetucket rivers, from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, angling for Atlantic salmon is restricted to catch-and-release only. From Dec. 1, to March 31, 2014, the daily limit for Atlantic salmon is one. During the open season on the rivers, the legal method for taking a salmon is limited to angling using a single fly or an artificial lure with a single free-swinging hook. No additional weight can be added to the line above the fly or lure. Also, from Oct. 1 to March 31, fishing for other species in the designated Atlantic Salmon Broodstock Areas is restricted to the gear legal for Atlantic salmon.

A good night’s rest helps you stay healthy and alert. But many older people don’t sleep well. If you’re always sleepy, it may be time to see a doctor. You shouldn’t wake up every day feeling tired. Sleep and aging Older adults need about the same amount of sleep as young adults — 7 to 9 hours each night — but they tend to go to sleep earlier and get up earlier than when they were younger. Older people may nap more during the day, which can sometimes make it hard to fall asleep at night. There are two kinds of sleep — REM (rapid eye movement) sleep and non-REM sleep. We dream mostly during REM sleep and have the deepest sleep during non-REM sleep. See Health / Page 39

With nearly 3,500 cars and 350 walkins, the town’s drive-in theater had a successful season. A little more than $16,000 has been distributed to the nonprofit civic groups that host the movies. At the Town Council meeting last week, Drive-in Committee Chairman Michael Riccio said that since 2010 about $48,000 has been given to local nonprofits. That same night Drive-in Committee members presented 13 groups with checks for $1,250 each, totaling $16,250.

Southington’s Town-wide Effort to Promote Success, known as STEPS, will be the last nonprofit to receive a check after they host the Halloween Festival on Oct. 26. “It’s expected to be as good as last year,” said Drive-in Committee member Mike Fasulo, referring to the Halloween Festival. Last year approximately 450 cars came through on the night of the festival. On an average night about 250 cars come to see a movie, Fasulo said. The Halloween festival features pumpkin painting, haunted hayrides and more, said committee member

Dawn Miceli. After the activities, “Monster’s Inc.” will be shown and later in the night, “Amity Horror.” Movies shown this year included “Jaws,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “Clambake. While the drive-in showed a few older and rated-R movies, Miceli said they learned their audience likes family movies best. “We’re going to stick next year to what we discovered in these last four seasons has worked,” Miceli said. A goal for next year is to add more civic groups, Miceli said.

As people get older, they spend less time in deep sleep, which may be why older people are often light sleepers. Source of sleep problems There are many reasons why older people may not get enough sleep at night. Feeling sick or being in pain can make it hard to sleep. Napping during the day can disrupt sleep at night. Some medicines can keep you awake. No matter the reason, if you don’t get a good night’s sleep, the next day you may: --Be irritable. --Have memory problems or be forgetful. --Feel depressed. --Have more falls or accidents. --Feel very sleepy during the day. Do you have insomnia? Insomnia is the most common sleep problem in adults age 60 and older. People with insomnia have trouble falling and staying asleep. Insomnia can last for days, months or even years. If you’re having trouble sleeping, you may: --Take a long time to fall asleep. --Wake up many times in the night. --Wake up early and be unable to get back to sleep. --Wake up tired. --Feel very sleepy during the day. There are many causes of insomnia. Some of them you can control, but others you can’t. For example, if you are excited about a new activity or worrying over your bills, you may have trouble sleeping. Sometimes insomnia may be a sign of other problems. Or it could be a side effect of a medication or an illness. Often, being unable to sleep becomes a habit. Some people worry about not sleeping even before they get into bed. This may even make insomnia worse. Older adults who have trouble sleeping may use more over-the-counter sleep aids. Using prescription medicines for a short time might help. But remember, medicines aren’t a cure for insomnia. Developing healthy habits at bedtime may help you get a good night’s sleep. --Nextavenue.org

The state of Connecticut has received a $2.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop an application for a $45 million grant to design a new health payment system in the state that will support coordinated patient-centered care. In Fairfield County, a new group is trying to make it easier for solo practitioners to provide patient-centered care. St. Vincent’s Health Partners Inc. is a new physician-hospital organization created in 2011 by St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport and a group of doctors trying to determine how best to respond to federal health care reform efforts. The concept allows the member doctors to remain in-

dependent but have access to resources available for large medical groups, such as electronic health records, patient management tools, group purchasing discounts and data sharing and quality management. Tracking systems will make sure people don’t get duplicative tests or procedures they don’t need and will remind them of upcoming appointments and tests.

practices will take a new and more holistic team approach to treating their patients and anticipating their individual needs. For example, a primary care practice would plan ahead and have other practitioners, such as a diabetic nurse clinician or nutritionist, on hand for a patient’s appointment. “So when the patient comes through the door, we manage that event differently than we managed it before,” Lalime said. “You are getting the right care at the right time, at the right place — for the first time, more often.” Once these 75 practices are trained and certified — a process that takes about eight months — Lalime estimates that about 40 percent of the state’s primary care doctors will operate using a patient-centered approach in Connecticut. “I think 10 years from now, there will be much more integration of care, and care coordination will be the standard,” Lalime said. “And consumers should be looking for practices that actually function that way.” Such an approach, Lalime

said, should eventually reduce the amount of times a patient might visit a hospital emergency room or inappropriately go to a specialist, both costly scenarios. Lalime estimates that the price of one emergency room visit, about $2,000, would cover the cost of 20 coordinated office visits, while the cost of a typical hospital visit, about $30,000, would cover 300 coordinated office visits. Unlike managed health care, where insurance companies tend to be the gatekeepers that decide which procedures to cover, this new concept “puts the patient at the hub” while the practitioners and the patient’s primary care doctor are the spokes, Lalime said.

Thomas Raskauskas, the organization’s president and CEO, said a lot of independent practitioners are busy and find it overwhelming to understand all the complexities of health care reform, and they don’t have the money to handle patient population management. “This allows them to stay in solo practice without having to join a group,” he said.

Ex-Red Sox flock to Hawk’s Landing for golf And they weigh in on their former team’s run from last place to first in the AL East President Art Secondo. “People tell me all of the time that this is one of the best tournaments that they play in. This is our biggest fundraiser and without (Chamber golf chairman) Dana Rickard this wouldn’t be possible.” Rickard and his wife Kathy are avid Red Sox fans who met many of the former ballplayers at Red Sox Fantasy Camp about a decade ago and invited them to Southington for the golf tournament. The players keep coming back every year. “It’s an honor and a pleasure just to play here,” former Boston pitcher Steve Crawford said. “Dana has been great and I played with the same people I played with last year.

A strong contingent of former Boston Red Sox took part in the 20th Annual Southington Chamber Cup Classic Oct. 2 at Hawk’s Landing. Luis Tiant, Steve Crawford, Steve Braun, Tom Burgmeier, Bill Campbell, Rick Miller and Gary Waslewski were the former Beantowners on the links. Other major leaguers, including Eric Solderholm (Yankees) and Mike Caldwell (Reds/ Brewers), were also among the sellout 150 golfers. “This is our 20th year, but it’s our ninth year with the celebrities,” said Southington Chamber of Commerce

all about winning and losing. It’s about having a great time.” Crawford, who helped pitch the Red Sox to the World Series in 1986, said he has been watching his old team all season. The former reliever said he was surprised about the Red Sox amazing turnaround from last season, though only to a point. “John Farrell is a great manager,” Crawford said. “He’s got the players’ respect and they are playing hard for him. Everything has come together like it has supposed to.” Crawford was a contemporary of Farrell’s when the current Red Sox manager was pitching for the Indians in the ’80s. Crawford said Farrell should be American League Manager of the Year. Burgmeier said it’s the players that deserve most of the credit for the turnaround, but noted that Farrell is a much better fit for the Red Sox than his predecessor, Bobby Valentine. “ I wa s n’ t s u r p r i s e d ,” B u rg m e i e r sa id . “Th ey were just as good last year. However, three of their pitchers did not turn it on and they traded a couple of them and Bobby Valentine is not the man I want managing my team. “But the players have to produce and that’s the beauty of the game. The guys didn’t play up to their potential last year. I couldn’t believe they lost 90-something games last year.” Tiant said he has enjoyed watching his former team play this season. “You really have to tip your cap to them,” the former hurler said. “They really put together a good team that just keeps getting better. Hopefully, they will go all the way.” Waslewski, who pitched for the ’67 Impossible Dream team, said anything can happen in the playoffs. “I’ve been up to watch them three or four times this year,” Waslewski said. “They had some injuries with (Clay) Buchholz and (Jacoby) Ellsbury being hurt and Lester couldn’t get anyone out for a while, but other See Sox / Page 49

Thanks for the memories, Mo – so delicate and precise, yet the end result was this powerful message that would shake your perspective on everything you thought you knew about baseball. How did he do that again? Why do these batters never catch on? What the heck is this guy’s secret? You’d think after 19 years in the majors, hitters would have figured out the mystery behind that cutter, but they didn’t, and even in his final

season Mo’s output didn’t change. He put up 44 saves this year out of 51 opportunities. Over that 19-year stretch, 652 saves out of 732 chances. Walks? 286. Strikeouts? 1,173 (pretty nice ratio, if you ask me). In his career, he’s never blown more than nine save opportunities in a season, and those nine happened in 1997, where he still made 43. So it’s no wonder, really,

On Sept. 26, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi visited the mound, where his players were already waiting, and signaled for a righthanded pitcher in the top of the eighth inning during the Yankees’ final home game of the season, against the Tampa Bay Rays. And just like he’s done since his Major League debut in 1995, Mariano Rivera trotted out from the bullpen at Yankee Stadium, accompanied by his signature tune, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” The fans in Yankee Stadium knew what to expect from Mo every time he emerged from that bullpen, so the cheers were always there. The Yankees were already eliminated from playoff contention Sept. 26, and they would lose to the Rays 4-0, but even so, the cheers were a little louder this time. This particular moment meant everything for a player who has firmly cemented his legacy into the history books of baseball, for all the fans who watched him over the years, and for all the players who had the incredible honor to share the field with him or face him on the mound. I didn’t get to watch Mo’s final game live, but I watched the clips of it afterwards, and I humored myself by looking up the play-by-play to see what it said when Mo exited the mound: “Pitching change: Matt Daley replaces Mariano Rivera. Coaching visit to mound. On-field delay.” Just a simple “on-field delay” to denote the final exit of the greatest of all time. It didn’t even matter if you were a Yankees fan. Heck, even Red Sox fans tipped their caps and wished the best for Mo, a guy who showed up and simply did his job with near-infallible execution. When I was younger, before I even understood anything about how baseball really worked, before I even understood who Mo was, I

would see that guy wearing No. 42, pinstripes. Before I even understood why it was that the Yankees were going to win whatever game I was watching, I knew it was going to happen. I knew what to expect before I even knew what to expect. And then I grew older, and he was still there, piping cutters across home plate. Every appearance was like this incredible work of art where each pitch was a brush stroke

Week without violence Press Release Imagine a week without violence. Imagine people walking the streets at night without fear. Imagine sexual and domestic violence as faded memories of a long gone era. This is the vision of the global movement of the YWCA. This is what the Y WCA Week Without Violence works to achieve. The YWCA Week Without Violence is an annual worldwide campaign that takes place in the third week of October to encourage communities to think and act towards a world without violence. Throughout the week activities focus on raising awareness, promoting attitude change, and enabling individuals and organizations to begin positive actions toward ending violence in their communities. In recognition of Week Without Violence the New Britain Y WCA Sexual Assault Crisis Service (YWCA SACS) would like to highlight its newest program, Where Do You Stand? Connecticut. The YWCA SACS is part of the Connecticut Campaign to engage men to stand up

against sexual violence. Where Do You Stand? Connecticut campaign was created by Men Can Stop Rape, a national organization redefining masculinity and male strength as part of preventing men’s violence against women. Men Can Stop Rape trained Connecticut advocates to utilize bystander intervention theory and techniques to equip men with the tools necessary to take a stand against all forms of sexual violence. So why Focus On Men? Where Do You Stand? Connecticut campaign empowers men to use their voice, influence, and actions to become a part of the solution. Statistically speaking, most men in our society believe it is wrong to rape a woman. However, majority of these men also live and participate in a culture which supports, glorifies, and justifies violence against women and girls. This bystander intervention program engages men in addressing the cultural norms which support sexual violence. It will help to give men the necessary tools and confidence to help hold other men accountable for

people stepped up and got the job done. They battled and are there now. It’s been a great year, but don’t get knocked out in the first series.” Another pro athlete in attendance was former NHL veteran Aaron Miller, coowner of Buffalo Wild Wings in Southington. Miller played 14 seasons for the Quebec Nordiques, Colorado Avalanche, Los Angeles Kings and the Vancouver Canucks. He was also a silver medalist on the 2002 U.S. hockey team. He retired from pro hockey in 2008. “I had a lot of fun,” Miller said of playing in last week’s tournament. “We just opened the Buffalo Wild Wings and I’m trying to get involved in the community. The Chamber has been great to us.”

recognized as the greatest at their sport, and hey, there are other great baseball players, too. But then you think about Rivera’s situation; he’s a closer, so that means he comes in at the end of the game to finish the other pitchers’ jobs. He’s the last one the opposing batters see, then it’s goodnight. It’s easy to see why “Enter Sandman” is such a perfect song for him. It won’t be the same watching the Yankees knowing No. 42 won’t be securing another “W” for the Bronx Bombers, but he’s certainly a chapter of his own in the detailed lore of baseball; a chapter that will end with a simple “on-field delay.” So goodnight, Mo. Thanks for the memories.

their active participation in this culture, resulting in efforts to prevent sexual violence. W h a t I s B ys t a n d e r Intervention? Bystander intervention aims at empowering each of us to be active in responding to and preventing sexual violence. Bystander intervention quite simply means having a willingness to take action when it’s needed. Ending sexual violence and all forms of oppression, will take a lot of collective work. We all need to be willing to take action to challenge cultures that support and allow sexual violence to occur. Bystander intervention techniques can involve a wide range of interventions from being direct to creating a distraction. Bystander interventions provide men with useful tools to stop a range of negative behaviors and to create spaces where everyone is safe and respected.
