9/11 remembered at ceremony By Mark Dionne Town Time

A brief and somber ceremony on the Durham Town Green led by Durham’s Karen Kean recognized the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Kean has held and run the ceremony every year. She and Durham First Selectman Laura Francis addressed the audience. This year Kean spoke about wanting to feel safe on 9/11. “For me, Durham feels safe,” she said. Also at the ceremony, Dick Duval sang, the a cappella group Unaccompanied Minors performed “The Star Spangled Banner,” and Coginchaug Regional High School student Emily Event organizer Karen Kean and singer Dick Duval at the 9/11 rememberance ceremony. | Mark Dionne / Town Times Stanwood played “Taps.”

On Wednesday, Sept. 9, two large sugar maple trees were cut down on Durham’s Town Green as part of the lengthy renovation of the green and, particularly, its trees. The Town Green Revitalization Project, which grew out of a town task force, has been examining the health of the trees on the green and seeking donations to replace sick trees. According to TGRP member Tina Gossner, “They were both sugar maples and had reached a point where at least half of their main branches were dead. They constituted a safety hazard. We do not definitely know the exact cause of their decay, although there is a decline in sugar maples across the northeast.” Allan’s Tree Service of Middlefield cut down the trees and quickly carted off the branches and trunk pieces. Maintenance on the trees has been paid for through a line in the town budget and donations to the project. The town budgets $1,000 to the green project and the TGRP has coordinated with the Durham Garden Club for private donations. Small trees can be removed by town crews, which helps the TGRP stretch its See Green / Page 2

tom Road and one on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike in Southington. Long Bottom Road will have honey crisp, gala, McIntosh, and Jonamac apples available for picking. The Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike location will have McIntosh, honey crisp, and Jonamac apples. McIntosh and Cortland apples will be available for pick-

ing at High Hill Orchard and as the season goes on more apples like golden delicious, red delicious, and others will be ready to pick. At Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, McIntosh also made its debut last weekend. While the orchard has had some apples available for pick-yourown the previous two weeks, McIntosh is one of the most

popular, said John Lyman, the owner of Lyman Orchards. “Once that starts, it’s fall, it’s harvest time,” said Lyman. Rogers, Lyman, and Wayne Young, a manager with High Hill Orchard, said the apple crop was good this year and typically pick-your-own apple season starts around See Apples / Page 2

Green stage of the plan, including the planting of five trees this fall. TGRP members said that they wanted to plant as they want to prevent the green from looking clear cut and also so the new trees, which can be dedicated memorial trees, might encourage more donations to the project. Gossner said that work will continue immediately after the Durham Fair and added,

the Board of Selectmen. The complete plan involves removal of sick trees and planting new ones as well as a crushed stone path along the Town House Road side of the green and bollard fencing. Bollard fencing is a low fencing of posts to control auto-

mobile traffic. The projected cost is $32,060 Using donations collected through the Durham Garden Club and the Carl Otte Natural Resource Fund, the TGRP has collected more than $22,000 for the project. The BOS approved the next

pick-your-own,” said Rogers. “We’ll be doing pick-yourown all September and well into October and until we’re picked out at end of October.” At Lyman Orchards there will be a variety of 15 to 20 apples by the end of the season. “It should be a good selection for people,” Lyman said. “People can pick in multiple

orchards.” Lyman said they welcome families to come pick even though the weather still feels like the start of summer. “It’s a really good family activity,” Lyman said. “People aren’t thinking apples or thinking cider yet,” he said laughing.

funding. The two trees that were cut down were approximately 40 feet tall and had dead sections. According to a TGRP report, planting trees too close to the roads, as was done in the past, limits the life of the tree. New trees are proposed to be planted at least 10 feet from Town House Road and 17 feet from Main Street. The most recent trees taken down are not the end. Gossner said, “Sadly, a fourth sugar maple along Main Street on the green will also need to be removed since it is also dying. This on state property, so will be removed by the state – again, for safety reasons.” On Monday, Sept. 14, TGRP member and Durham Tree Warden Tim Larkin presented the group’s plan to

“We are fortunate that Laura Francis and the Board of Selectmen supported a request two years ago ... to begin the process of looking at replacements for the trees on the green since they saw the decline in the health of the trees.” Drawings of the town green plan are available on the Town Green Revitalization Project’s page on Durham’s website.

Apple Labor Day. “It looks good, looks very good. It’s nice in color,” Young said of the apple crop. “It looks like a good season coming.” Rogers said they keep the apples on the lower end of the trees for people to pick because it’s easy access, while they pick the apples off the top of the trees to sell in their stores. “The crop is very good, there’s ample supply for

PET OF THE WEEK

Ray is a very handsome, sweet, lovable and laid back little boy. His owner could no longer care for him, so he wound up at Cat Tales. He is still confused why he’s here and a bit overwhelmed with all the other cats. He is happy to greet the volunteers every day. He loves attention and affection and likes to play with toys. Ray would be happy to curl up with you in bed or on the couch. He probably would do best as the only cat, since that’s the atmosphere he was used to. No dogs. He also would be fine with children age 6 or older. For information, call 860-344-9043, email info@CatTalesCT. org or visit www.CatTalesCT.org/cats/Ray/

Opinion Letters to the Editor Help correct mistake To the editor: I made a mistake. I agreed to try to help my son and daughter-in-law by selling their tandem stroller. On Labor Day, I put it at the end of my driveway on Madison Road with a “for sale” sign on it. The next day, it was gone. I didn’t know if someone picked it up in the dark thinking it was free, but I hoped that when they found the “for sale” sign, they would return the stroller. They did not. As a result, I am unable to give my son and daughter-in-law the money they hoped to raise. But I thought this letter could be an opportunity for the damage of my mistake to be repaired.

And just where in four-square America would folks accept the presence of this gateway green menace? What’s next— blue ribbons for Best Bud? It seems high time for a joint endeavor to revamp (or, revap) neighborhood watches: “Snoop for Safety.” In fact, let’s send in the drones. And, to conclude, this writer proposes that nearby residents, those most obvious victims of homegrown error, are due at least token consideration in the upcoming property revaluation.

From Everest to Sand Hill Every now and then I give a passing thought to the dreams that fleshed out my youth. Way back when, there was no doubt in my mind whatsoever that I would bring every single one of them to fruition. I didn’t. Not any of them. I was going to be a flight attendant and see the world. Now when I get on a plane to go see my boys, I think it’s good that that one fell by the wayside. I am not a lover of cramped space, and I am always holding the claustrophobia at bay. So pushing a cart down that teensy weensy aisle would not go well for me, or for anyone else. No doubt I would be shaving off a few knees. And I can’t help but notice that even up front there is hardly enough room for one to twirl around, if one had the uncontrollable urge to do so. I was going to go into the Peace Corps. I was going to save the world, or at least a huge chunk of it. Now my contribution to the community-at-large is occasionally picking up the litter on my street. Ah, youth – it has so few bounds. I could have roughed it back then, and thought it all a grand adventure. No running water, no electricity. No problem. But the years have made me soft. Now I revel in my creature comforts, and would be loathe to give up any one

of them. And cable, with its gazillion channels – you gotta have that! I think I was more noble when I was young. Oh well, I’ll just keep picking up the litter on my street. I was going to climb mountains, with Mount Everest not being out of the question. Now I consider it a challenge-extraordinaire to get to the top of Sand Hill Road, which I sometimes negotiate on my daily walks. I swear that hill is getting steeper every year. I wouldn’t say I used to sprint up it, but now I have to stop several times along the way to catch my breath. It always feels like there is no end in sight, and I would like to suggest that someone put a rest stop along the way, with tasty goodies and some liquid refreshment being offered. If someone came along that I knew, I believe I would stick out my thumb and hitch a ride to that elusive top. I think Sand Hill Road is as close to mountain-climbing as I’m going to get in this lifetime. I was going to hitch

around Europe, with that devil-may-care attitude so characteristic of youth. Yeah, I’m not getting off my couch. But in my defense, I do sit there with a devil-may-care attitude. So my life has taken a different turn, but that’s what lives like to do, and I’m happy with the one I ended up with. I’ve had my share of adventures, some fun, some not, but they all came with important lessons. I have two sons that I adore, and a grandson that I am sure hung the moon and the stars. I have incredible friends. Strangers are kind to me. I have a home I love and a wild backyard that I love even more. And you know how much my pool means to me! It’s all good. But if you happen to see me lumbering up Sand Hill Road, please give me a ride to the top. That would make life really good.

Along with the animals, fair food, exhibitions, rides, and entertainment, the Durham Fair will bring a lot of tradition to Durham for the 96th time from Thursday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Sept. 27. Certain traditions have remained intact for a long time while others continue to change. “The Durham Fair is the largest fair in North America managed entirely by unpaid volunteers,” the fair’s website reads. The fair’s publicity often mentions the all-volunteer status, something that has been maintained since 1916. The Durham Fair Association also often bills its fair as Connecticut’s largest agricultural fair. Trad i t i o n s h ave a l s o

Durham Fair a homecoming for band By Mark Dionne

Town Times

The last time Joe and Bethany Bastura were at the Durham Fair was last year

when they played as “Joe & Bethany” at the Green Stage in 2014. Before that, their Durham Fair experiences were typical of many kids who grew

up in Middlefield like Joe and Bethany. At the fair, Joe said he likes “Food, food, and more food.” Joe also tried to ride the Zipper a dozen or so times with a bracelet on

Fridays. Bethany said, “I have only missed one year of the Fair to date for one simple reason - it’s my home.” Her connections to the fair are also tied to music and go far back. Her Mom, Father, and Uncle used to perform at the fair as the Shaun Alison Band and even did a set at the fair while Bethany’s mother was nine months pregnant with her. Joe & Bethany will be back at this year’s Durham Fair. After a great response to last year’s performance, they have been given a slot at the Center Stage. This time, they will be backed by

Bethany’s Father and Uncle, who now go by The Monthei Brothers Band and still play the Durham Fair, including opening for Martina McBride. The pair will travel a long distance to make it back home. After getting married in 2012, Joe and Bethany moved to Austin, Texas in 2013. Joe said, “We’d never been to Austin but took a chance and are loving it down here. The music community is huge and very supportive ... the perfect place for a folk- Americana-counSee Band / Page 18

Local entertainment featured at the Durham Fair By Mark Dionne

Town Times

In addition to the headlining acts, many local performers will step onto the stages of the Durham Fair between Thursday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 27. Two acts with local connections will open for the headliners. On Friday at 5:30 p.m., the Monthei Brothers Band featuring Presley and Taylor will open for Martina McBride on the Main Stage. Joe and John Monthei grew up in the Lake Beseck neighborhood of Middlefield and have played in different bands around the country, but are now locally

based. On Saturday at 5:30 p.m., Jackson Hill will open for Craig Morgan on the Main Stage. This will be the third time Jackson Hill, a country band with easily the most local name, opens for a headliner. Jackson Hill opened for Steel Magnolia in 2011 and Justin Moore in 2013. The opportunities to see local performers actually starts on the first day of the fair with groups from Coginchaug Regional High School and Mercy High School.

Miles took the opportunity to announce to friends and supporters that the Middlesex Dance Center dancers were going to perform on Main Street in Walt Disney World and that moment became her favorite Durham Fair performance memory. For country-folk duo Joe and Bethany, performing at the fair will serve as a homecoming. (See side article.) The Kid’s Place Stage is the fourth stage to see some local performers. On Saturday at 5 p.m., the DMYFS/PaperHouse Players, who were last together in July to perform “Into the Woods, Jr.” will be on the Kid’s Stage. The Kid’s Stage will also host the Middlefield Ukulele Club on Sunday at 1 p.m. The annual Durham Fair Talent Show, Saturday at 1 p.m. at Center Stage, is another reliable spot to see local performers. According to Bill Currlin, organizer of the show, 42 acts from across

year’s first place winner, Alex Woznyk of Durham, will dance at the end of the show, providing yet another opportunity to see a local performer. The rock band Kings of Karma, featuring Durham residents Mike Zito, Mike Satton and Lou Rascati, will help close out the fair on the Green Stage on Sunday at 3 p.m.

lives who we might otherwise not dance for - like neighbors, teachers, and coaches,” said Director Toni-Lynn Miles. “For me, it’s incredible to be a part of something that has been a part of my entire life.” Over time, the performing space has changed for CRHS performers. Larsen said, “The steps of the Town Hall served as our first stage many years ago. It was a challenge dancing up and down steps but I loved that it was at the entrance to the fair. I have very fond memories of those shows.” According to Larsen, the organizers have been kind to the performers over the years. Larsen said, “We were also treated a bit like celebrities for many years. The organizers always had lots of food and drinks for the kids and let them hang out in the trailer. We were always welcomed like the stars we thought we were.” At a past Durham Fair,

ridis, Coginchaug will bring the Show Choir, Jazz Band, Dixieland Band, and the a cappella groups Nothin’ but Treble and No Refund to the fair with performances on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday at 11 a.m. The Mercy Music Department will perform on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. The September performances are early in the school calendar. Larsen said, “This show is a big challenge for all of the groups and directors. We always ‘hit the ground running’ and work extra rehearsals to get the material ready for the fair. We often wonder if the groups will be ready ... and then, ‘poof!’ they are. It’s amazing what high school kids can do when presented with a challenge.” Coginchaug sophomore and performer Alexander Stephan said, “It’s our first performance of the school year so it teaches us all how it feels to perform together.” Rob Link, Director of Music at Mercy, has a similar experience with his chamber choir. “[I]t is so early in the school year that we have to really work hard to prepare our music. We have around three weeks so there is a sort of time crunch,” Link said. Link said his group likes the laid back fair atmosphere, plus the fair food. Link added, “What we enjoy most as a group is hearing the other area high school groups perform. We don’t get a lot of opportunities to hear them so we really enjoy that aspect of it.” The high school groups will perform on the Center Stage. For many of these performers, the Durham Fair has become part of their tradition. When dancers from the Middlesex Dance Center in Middlefield step on the Center Stage Saturday at 10 a.m., it will be their sixth appearance. “Our favorite part of performing at the Fair is dancing for friends and people in our

try-acoustic duo. This city and the local musicians have definitely had a huge influence on us musically.� The pull of the Durham Fair proved strong for the Middlefield natives. “We’re New Englanders at heart and most of our family and friends are still in CT and the Northeast.� Joe said, “Getting a chance to play a big show back home for everyone is awesome and who doesn’t love the Durham Fair?�

Fair weather, over the weekend of Sept. 26, brought in “record numbers� of people at the Durham Fair, where food, fun and festivities were found in abundance. Though exact totals hadn’t been tabulated by Sunday afternoon, Debbie Huscher, the fair’s marketing coordinator, said she expected attendance figures to exceed those of recent years. “Last year we had roughly 200,000 people, and this year I’d say we’re beyond that,� she said. Huscher attributed favorable weather to the fair’s success. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were all unseasonably warm for late September, and even rain on Thursday didn’t result in a total wash. “We got less rain than we originally thought we would,� she said. “The Demolition Derby was Thursday night, and there were people lined up with their umbrellas to see it.�

hills, but Joe helps to calm my nerves.� Joe & Bethany have released an album called “Still Dark on Newbury,� which is available on iTunes and at the fair. Returning to their hometown for the fair means the couple gets to catch up with family and friends, eat fried dough, and catch the other musical acts. Joe & Bethany, backed by The Monthei Brothers Band, will perform on Center Stage on Friday at 1 p.m.

or Parmesan chicken chompers, a poutine booth, and Hot Scream, which Huscher calls “ice cream with a kick.� Entertainment started at the first Durham Fair, when organizers agreed to have music at the fair as long as it cost less than $50. Entertainment at the 96th fair is heavy on country music, another Durham Fair tradition, with Martina McBride headlining Friday night, Craig Morgan performing on Saturday, and Confederate Railroad closing the fair on Sunday. The fair has also moved on-line in recent years, with a facebook and twitter presence. Last year fair organizers encouraged fair goers to post selfies and held a #DurhamFairSelfie daily contest.

Huscher said that the contest will return, morphed into a #DurhamFairTales contest with selfies of favorite moments. Appropriately enough, the daily and grand prize winners will be announced by Instagram, facebook, and Twitter. Mutts Gone Nuts, the comedy act with rescue dogs, is also returning for the second fair in a row. Profits from any merchandise they sell will be donated to the Durham Animal Response Team. The exhibitors guide was published on-line only for the 2015 fair. The move, while certainly cheaper and better for the environment, drew some complaints from traditionalists and took some of the wind out of the traditional photo contest to determine the cover. According to Huscher, that change has paved the way for a printed Commemorative Book with highlights from the fair and printed first, second, and third place winners in exhibition classes. “This is the first time it has ever been done and is an exciting build up to our 100th year,� said Huscher. The 96th annual Durham Fair will also see new buildings like the youth building and President’s Hall in use for the second year and a composting program expanding for the third year in a row. While the fair, with its traditions and habits, might look the same year to year to regular fair goers, it does change over time.

The hometown crowd does not make the musicians particularly nervous. Joe, who says he rarely gets nervous on stage, said, “I’ll admit it’s always a little more nerve-wracking to be playing in front of people you care about. It’s always fun, though.� Bethany said, “I definitely think there is more pressure being in front of people who have known me since I was little, running around with cotton candy all over my face and rolling down the

new tradition - aggressive bag-checking at the gates. Parking in Durham Fair shuttle lots used to be free, and then cost money, and now it can be free again. This year, the DFA has offered $10 Advanced Tickets, which is $3 off the gate price, and includes free parking in Durham Fair operated lots. Joking about the unhealthiness of fair food while eating fair food is another tradition. According to Deb Huscher, Director of Marketing for the DFA, there will be some new food options at the fair, including healthy smoothies from the Juice Caboose. New food this year also includes bacon cheeseburger

It’s a question that many pre-retirees find themselves asking – How much money will I need to keep my current lifestyle in retirement? What’s more, will I have enough to live the retirement I’ve been dreaming about? A few years ago, as we struggled with a significant Jeff Jolly bear market and the country’s financial crisis, the idea of achieving an ideal retirement seemed to take a backseat to ensuring retirement essentials were handled. Today, people are again envisioning a truly fulfilling retirement. At the very least, most people want to carry over the lifestyle they became accustomed to in their working years. Given that people also will likely have more free time after they set work aside, retirement can mean much more. What are ‘lifestyle’ expenses? It is helpful to categorize different types of expenses you will face in retirement.

quire a significantly greater investment than taking trips to various parts of the U.S. or spending time at your vacation home. Another nuance to lifestyle expenses is that they may fluctuate from year to year. Some retirees choose to pursue a very active lifestyle in the first years of freedom from work and their expenses may be higher in the early part of retirement as a result. Then lifestyle expenses may decline as they grow older and are less able to pursue certain activities. It’s important to consider how your retirement lifestyle may change over time. Good planning may help make your desired lifestyle a reality Most people who are able to achieve their ideal retirement don’t do so by accident. They plan ahead and develop a savings and investment strategy to make it happen. No matter your age, here are three important steps you should consider starting now: 1. Map out your dreams for retirement. Try to identify specific goals and activities that you want to pursue. 2. Estimate the costs of your ideal retirement lifestyle, in terms of monthly or annual expenses. Try to leave some cushion in your estimates in case actual costs exceed your expectations. Keep in mind that even with modest inflation it will likely cost more down the road than it does today. 3. Develop a plan to fund those goals. This includes a dedicated savings strategy that is increased every year to account for inflation. Consider tempering the risk in your portfolio as retirement draws closer. The good news is that you can dream about retirement again. However, those dreams don’t become a reality without being proactive to make it happen. The sooner you start, the more successful you are likely to be. Follow us on Twitter: @TheTownTimes

To the editor: As the Nov. 3 election approaches, we are faced with what is probably the most important election decision we have had in a decade. Currently, there are three candidates that are vying for the position to be Middlefield’s First Selectman. The Democrats are running Peter Neidhart. The Republicans are running the current second selectman, Ed Baily, and I have made a decision to run as an Independent. Some people have asked how this came about. The decision did not come easily, nor was it made overnight. In late spring, I was asked by members of the Democratic nominating committee to run as the party’s candidate for First Selectman. I have made my decision to run as an Independent based on the simple idea that I believe that I can serve Middlefield’s constituents best without any party ties or expectations of reciprocity. This, in my opinion, is what Middlefield and Rockfall truly need right now. Recently, it has come to light that both of the party candidates have stated that they do not plan on leaving their current full-time jobs if elected. If I am elected, I commit to being a full-time First Selectman with daytime Monday through Friday hours. That is not only what the position pays, it is what we as taxpayers deserve. As candidates canvass and ask for your

The Coginchaug Blue Devil football team opened its season Saturday, Sept. 12 hosting Cromwell/Portland, and falling to their foes 20-14. Sporting new uniforms, a new head coach and a new offense, Cromwell received the opening kickoff and the Blue Devil defense looked to contain the Cromwell threat. The defense stopped Cromwell and took over on a punt return. The Blue Devils hoped to establish the run game early and found some success, but the opening drive was stopped past midfield. Both teams continued the formula for a few more series when Parker Tregoning busted off the right side for a 22-yard scamper, the extra point was added by John Lombardo, one of two he would get for the day. The second quarter saw more of the same with the Blue Devil defense still applying pressure, with both teams working between the 40’s. Late in the frame, the Devils took over after a Cromwell punt and fumbled on their own 25, a scene that would repeat itself in the fourth quarter. The next play, a pass to the end zone, was picked off by Mike Cross to stop the threat. The second half saw more of the same when in the middle of the third quarter, Cromwell would score on a run play, though the Blue Devils were able to stop the two-point conversion. With the score stuck at 7-6 heading into the fourth, Cromwell found paydirt and this time converted on a twopoint conversion to take a 14-7 lead. The Blue Devils struck again, with Tregoning taking a 10-yard sweep play in for the game tying score. With 1:30 left in the contest, the Blue Devils took over on the 40 yard line, only to fumble the ball on the snap. Cromwell recovered and scored two plays later to take a 20-14 lead. Coginchaug took over with less than a minute and promptly drove down inside Cromwell territory. Unfortunately for Blue Devil fans, quarterback Wes Benjunas was forced out of bounds on fourth down when he couldn’t find an open receiver downfield. Tregoning finished the day with 150
