Parties choose committee leaders By Mike Savino Record-Journal staff

Senate Democrats and Republicans have named their co-chairs and vice chairs for legislative committees. Senate leaders brokered a deal in late December that creates a third seat for Senate Republicans, a result of the November election that resulted in a tie in the chamber. Previously, only the majority party in each chamber served as one of two co-chairs, with the minority party selecting a ranking member as its leader in committee-level negotiations. House Democratic and Republican leaders have yet to announce their committee assignments.

Britain, will once again co-chair the Public Health Committee. Sen. Len Fasano, Suzio R-North Haven, will serve as Republican co-chairman for two committees, the Legislative and Executive Nominations and Legislative Management committees. He also becomes Senate Republican president pro tempore under the agreement, giving him more say in the Senate, including on scheduling, than he had as Senate Minority Leader.

Skiers and snowboarders learn to ski and board at Powder Ridge on Jan. 6.

Going for a world record at Powder Ridge By Mark Dionne Town Times

On Friday, Jan. 6 skiers and snowboarders at Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort took part in an attempt to set a world record for largest lessons. The Guinness organization, which verifies world records, still needs to confirm if Friday’s attempt, spread out among multiple ski areas, set any new records. Participants at about 80 resorts in the Unites States and several more in Canada were attempting to break four records that day: largest multiple venue ski lesson, largest multiple venue snowboard lesson, largest single venue ski lesson, and largest single venue snowboard lesson.

According to organizers, Powder Ridge had 45 students at 1 p.m. for the attempt, which will not break the single venue records, but will contribute to the multiple venue totals that need to surpass 500 snowboarders and 594 skiers to make it into the record books. Said Powder Ridge’s Laura Loffredo, “Powder Ridge, for decades, has always been the mountain that people learned to ski on in Connecticut. And to help encourage learning to ski or board we participated in the Worlds Largest Lesson.” Other upcoming events at Powder Ridge include the first “Grip and Slip Downhill Mountain Bike Race” on Saturday, Feb. 4 and the first “Hope on the Slopes” benefit for the American Cancer Society in Connecticut on Saturday, Jan. 28.

Political adversaries push for bipartisanship we need to take the next 30 days to address the current fiscal year’s budget deficit. Second, we need to develop a budget for the next two fiscal years. And third, we need to chart a course that future legislatures can build upon so we can move the state into the next decade.”

By Ken Liebeskind Special to Town Times

Longtime political adversaries, Senate Republican president pro tempore Len Fasano and President Pro Tempore of the Senate Martin Looney, a Democrat, expressed words of admiration for each other as the 2017 legislative session opened Wednesday, Jan. 4. Fasano, who has long complained about the perceived maltreatment of Republicans by the Democratic majority, welcomed Looney back to work after kidney transplant surgery in December. “We all know what Senator Looney went through a few short weeks ago. We are all so glad to see him here today,” said Fasano, of North Haven. Looney replied, “Our friendship extends beyond the Senate chamber and the halls of the Capital. We have a good relationship as fellow New Haven attorneys.”

seats on Nov. 8. The senate now has an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. Looney said, “We discussed the way committees will operate and how bills could be blocked. There’s an equal number of senators but a Democratic majority in the

House, so we devised a system for Senate bills to avoid the possibility of being outvoted by House members.” The key issue for the legislature in the new session is to develop a state budget. “I propose doing this in three phases,” Fasano said. “First,

Fasano said, “Within 24 hours of his surgery he was on the phone with me working out all the final details of the agreement only he and I could resolve, based on our level of trust. The agreement that will guide our Senate chamber is rooted and formed from the friendship we have shared for over 30 years.”

State senators Martin Looney and Len Fasano seek a bipartisan approach to upcoming budget negotiations.

Looney said, “Our budget process begins in earnest when the governor submits his budget for the next two fiscal years on Feb. 8. We swing into action with our budget committees and pass a budget the governor can sign into law. We need to keep the changes within the framework so the governor will not veto the bill.”

Democrats in an evenly divided Senate can work together to establish a budget that meets the governor’s approval, but Looney is optimistic. “The arrangement we worked out is a good start,” he said. “Sen. Fasano and I have a good relationship and I think there will be enough good will to help us through the process.”

Wait times at the DMV drop drastically By Andrew Ragali Record-Journal staff

Wait times at Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles offices dropped an average of about 45 minutes in November because of customer service changes developed in a pilot program at two branches earlier in 2016, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced recently. In November, the DMV rolled out the changes to its

12 branches. The average wait time across the state dropped to 44 minutes in November, compared to 1 hour and 31 minutes in November 2015.

agency to find solutions for long wait times. Based on the analysis, a pilot program was launched in September and October at the Wethersfield and Enfield branches.

“We are focused on end-toend customer service and that is how these pilot projects were structured and the approach we are taking to our other branches as we duplicate these pilots,” DMV Commissioner Michael Bzdyra said in a statement.

The two branches opened 15 minutes early to allow employees to review paperwork and other documents for as many customers as possible to smooth out the early morning rush. A “quick ticket” service was also started at both branches to give customers a service ticket immediately instead of

The advocate checked customer paperwork after they received a ticket to ensure they were fully prepared and could be served efficiently. The pilot program resulted in a 55 percent decrease in average wait times at both branches, from 1 hour and 17 minutes to a little over 34 minutes, according to Malloy. More customers were also able to complete transactions — at a 90 percent

WALLINGFORD — The third time was the charm for the Lyman Hall-Coginchaug boys swimming team on Tuesday. After two road losses to open the season, the Trojans hit their home pool at Sheehan and dunked West Haven 9776 in a SCC Division II meet. Christian Chasse and Nick Motmans were each double winners for the co-op. Chasse was tops in diving (243.90) and the 100-yard freestyle (55.03). Nick Motmans was the man in the 200 free (2:17.00) and 100 butterfly (1:03.18).

IT’S ALL GOOD

This will be my year of ‘yes’ By Diana Carr Special to Town Times

I’m the original “no� girl. I say no to just about everything. Was I always like this? I wonder. I don’t think so. Well, not quite as much anyway. Back in the day (way back), I was not quite so wedded to my bathrobe, couch, and TV. I loved a party. I said yes to most invitations. I was more engaged with life. I was young. Parties aside, though, I think I really have been saying no all my life – no to the important things. Oh, ideas pop into my head all the time, and then pop right out again. They have a very short life span. I will get excited about something, thinking that it

will most surely set me on the road to nirvana. I’m grabbing hold of life now, by golly by gum, fashioning something marvelous for myself. And then I talk myself out of it. It’s too much effort. It’s too far to drive. It will be a waste of my time. I don’t want to spend the money. Nothing will come of it. And I find myself sitting in the exact same spot, not having budged an inch. I do this with almost everything. I will see an event that I would like to attend, but it’s at night, and I know my couch would miss me dearly. I will plan on going to a movie (during the day), but then the weather is predicting heavy rains, and I probably won’t be able to see the road on the way home. I

OPINION

I’m part of the problem By Donna Augur Bates

it hit me; I’m part of the problem.

Last weekend I stopped in at Carolyn Adams Country Barn. They are closing the store due to retirement, and selling off their inventory.

My experience that day reminded me of all the small businesses that have come and gone in Durham. I have had a similar reaction to many of those closings as well; always thinking what a shame it is to lose a local business.

I felt a little sad as I entered the building for what I knew would be my last trip to Carolyn Adams. I looked around at what was left on the floors of the store and although I saw some good deals, I didn’t buy anything. It was more of a walk down memory lane than a true shopping excursion. When I got back into my car, I thought, “What a shame, another local business gone from Durham.” And then

Some places would close before I even had a chance to get in there.

ple who are busy rushing from home to work and back again who fall into a pattern of convenience shopping. Sure it’s easier to stop some place you drive right by, but I don’t think the extra quarter of a mile would put me out. Sure, it’s cheaper to shop at a bigger store sometimes, but I don’t think the extra pennies would break my bank. I think it’s more about making a commitment to support local businesses than anything else.

Actually, that’s not true, there The one thing I can’t find in was time, I just didn’t get in those big stores though are there. the wonderful local busiBusinesses can’t survive ness owners who are trying without our patronage, and to make a living, support I’m part of the problem. their families, and provide a much-needed service to I guess I’m like a lot of peo-

our town. It’s those same people that often rally in different ways to help support the people of our town through donations, sponsorships, materials and goods, and jobs for our teenagers. They’ve been good to us. I often hear people say that they don’t want the small town feel to change. I don’t either. That’s why in 2017 I’m going to make more of an effort to support local businesses. When I need an afternoon pick-me-up I’m going to stop in and see Katie at Perk on Main. When I need a greeting card, small gift, or prescription filled I’ll stop in and see Walter and Carol at the Durham Pharmacy. When I

Unnecessary spending To the editor: The athletic complex. I am embarrassed to be a Republican in this town, the way we spend money. Who, reading this, has made fun of Hartford for building a ballpark it could not afford? I am allowed to write this. I was a member of the “athlete crowd” and during my years, the best long distance runner at North Haven High School. We did not need a sports complex, nor outdoor bathrooms nor lights, to have great teams. Bruce Chaplin Durham

field, and El Pulpo & Tapas Bar from Middletown. The Taste of Durham is the largest fundraising event for the Public Association of Library Supporters, or PALS, the booster organization that supports the Durham Public Library. Using money raised from events like the annual book sale and the Taste of Durham, PALS supplements the town’s library budget. As stated in a Taste of Durham press release, “The funds raised are used for programs, materials, equipment and services not included in the town’s library budget.” Jane Eriksen, who has been volunteering for the library since 1978 and is one of the founders of PALS, said, “This is our biggest fund raiser. We would not be able to fund the programming people enjoy without the Taste of Durham.”

Community Chorus singers are sought

Durham as a “community party.” Shirshac notes that the event is more a party than a dutiful fund raiser, saying, “It’s cold out and many people look forward to coming and having a good time.”

Restaurants and caterers have also shown loyalty to the event. As PALS lists returning contributors, “Longtime Durham contributors Cozy Corner, Durham Market and Caterers, Kevin Michael Smith Personalized Catering, Kim’s Cottage Confections, Lino’s Market and Caterers, Little Rooster Liquors (wine tasting), Perk Eriksen notes that the library on Main, and Time Out is the one town building used Taverne are all returning. throughout the year and by Returning from Middletown all ages and said, “It’s really are Brew Bakers Cafe, Daa center for everybody, so vid Alan Hospitality Group, the Taste of Durham actually benefits every one in town.” Library Director Cyndi Shirshac said that the library staff appreciates the support of PALS, who, she notes, are all volunteers. “They’re willing to take time out of their lives because they think the library is important enough and what we do is important enough to support,” Shirshac said.

While remaining a fundraiser, the event has proven to be popular and PALS regularly bills the Taste of

Fiore II, Hachi, Haveli India, ION Restaurant, and Tschudin Chocolates. Lyman Orchards Apple Barrel from Middlefield, although closed for the winter season, will participate.” Brenda Eddy of Brenda’s Main Street Feed also hosts a table with take-home pet treats and will return for 2017.

“How fortunate we are to have so many restaurants who return to us year after year. They’re very supportive,” Eriksen said. The musical entertainment, with Bruce Schmottlach on piano upstairs and Peter Magrane and the Drive-By Blues Band downstairs, will return.

Programming funding by PALS include children, teen, and adult events like the Summer Reading Program, Wellness Week, and the recent programming focusing on finances and cooking.

PALS also funds speakers and the library’s museum passes, which offer discounted admission to places like Mystic Aquarium and Seaport, the New Britain Museum of Art, and the Children’s Museum of West Hartford.

Altieri said offering his advice to the CIAC committee has been futile. “I didn’t think we needed legislation beyond what we had, the outs limit,” he said. “I think that was restrictive enough.” The rule in the CIAC’s 2016 tournament packet states: “The pitcher may not pitch more than 10 innings in any three consecutive calendar days. To determine the eligible number of innings that a pitcher may pitch on game day, total the number of innings pitched during the two previous calendar days and subtract from 10. Ten innings are equal to 30 outs.” The new rule accounts for only legal pitches. Throws as a result of batted balls, warm-up pitches or pitches that are considered illegal — when timeout has been called, for instance — will not count. Pitchers will be allowed to complete the process of pitching to a batter should the pitch limit be surpassed during the plate appearance. Pitch counts in games that are subsequently stopped – for weather, darkness or forfeit purposes, for example — will be applied to the rule.

Coaches will be required to list the pitchers who are unavailable per the pitchlimit rules on the back of the lineup card exchanged with the opposing coach and umpire-in-chief prior to each game. The use of a pitcher deemed ineligible by this rule will result in a forfeit. CIAC baseball tournament chairman Fred Balsamo has corroborated Altieri’s conviction that medical findings, which led the National Federation of High Schools to sanction the measure, are behind the sweeping decision. “A lot of this is coming from

Beginning this summer, the Legion will prohibit pitchers from exceeding 120 pitches in a single day. The cap for Junior Division hurlers will be 105. In both cases, pitchers surpassing those totals will be permitted to finish an at-bat.

According to a Legion press release, its rule mirrors the one sanctioned by USA Baseball in its Pitch Smart mission.

“If you overthrow all year, sooner or later you’re going to need surgery.” Teams are responsible for counting their own pitches, which ostensibly opens the door to manipulation, seeing that a pitcher who throws 49 pitches must rest for one day, but if he throws 51 must rest for three.

The rule acknowledges the integrity and common sense of state coaches in its question-and-answer segment where it states, “In Connecticut there is no maximum pitch count per day because we have faith in our coaches to protect and preserve the safety and welfare of the baseball athletes.”

The CIAC ruling is less stringent than the one enacted in October by the American Legion for its Senior Division (19 and under).
