present. Adults can learn more about using smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, like how to install and test them. The highlight of the event will be the smoke simulation trailer, which allows firefighters to teach children how to escape from a smoke-filled room, although the â€œsmokeâ€? is really just harmless water vapor. â€œWe have a window they can practice escaping through in the smoke-filled trailer,â€? said Lachance. â€œWeâ€™ve been doing this for several years now and we have really gotten a positive response from the public.â€? The event will be staffed by firefighters from Newingtonâ€™s four companies, plus its Cadet Company â€” those ages 16-18 who aspire to become firefighters. There is no cost to attend the event, sponsored by the Newington Fire Department. â€œWe encourage any firefighters who are available that night

Hundreds of Newington children, families and others are expected at the Fire Prevention Open House, Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Fire Co. No. 1, located at 1485 Main St. in Newington. National Fire Prevention Week is sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association. It has been happening since 1920, officially instated by President Woodrow Wilson., and during the Monday through Saturday period in which Oct. 9 falls each year. This date goes back to 1871, when the Great Chicago Fire tore through the city late Oct. 8, causing the most damage the following day. Area authorities wanted an occasion when they could promote fire safety after the infamous fire, eventually sparking national efforts.

Low-income senior housing available early next year
Meadow View complex about halfway completed By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER
Construction on the Meadow View housing community reached its halfway point about a week ago. Officials anticipate it being ready for move-in in early 2012. The community, located behind the Senior Center at 50 Mill Street Extension, has been built specifically for those ages 62 and older who live on low incomes. The complex will consist of one, two-floor building with a central community space and 32 one-bedroom units, four designed to be handicapped-accessible. Each unit is equipped with a living and dining room area, a full kitchen and one bathroom. “The town of Newington has been tremendously supportive and helpful in working with us to build this community,” says
Eric Schmitt | Staff
The Meadow View low-income senior housing community is under construction and is scheduled to open early next year.
William Fairbairn, president and CEO of the New Samaritan Corp., the force driving the community to completion. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, along with Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development, funded the $6.8 million project through their National Housing Trust Fund Program. Residents will pay no more than 30 percent of their income for rent, allowing them to have enough
money to meet their other needs, according to Tammy Lautz, director of property management for Elderly Housing Management, the company spearheading the project. “Each individual rent is based on their particular circumstances,” said Lautz. With such close proximity to the Senior Center, seniors who move into the community will easily be able to become friendly with each other while taking advantage of its services and activities and still living
independently. “It’s amazing how quickly residents become neighbors,”Lautz said. “There is outside space we encourage residents to utilize as well.There will be picnic areas and a common gathering area outdoors, with the focus being that this is their home.” Residents will be encouraged to form a Resident Council to facilitate activities within the community, like lunches, craft-making, and volunteer work. “After the first full year of
operation we will request funding for a resident service coordinator,” Lautz said, “a position assisting residents in engaging social services from within the community, which in turn will enable residents to age in place, successfully in their homes.” “What makes Meadow View particularly appealing is that it will combine easy access to stores and services with a rural setting,” said Project Architect Paul Selnau of Henry Schadler Associates, PC, in Farmington. “The area is a particularly conducive for senior living because it is a block away from Newington Center, making it convenient to shopping, the local Senior Center and Town Hall. At the same time, those who live at Meadow View overlook wooded areas no matter where they are in the community.” Elderly Housing Management Inc. is currently taking information from those interested in moving into the complex. To learn more or have your contact information added to the inquiry list for one of the apartments, contact EHM at (203) 230-4809 ext. 1053.

Study looks at state’s breast cancer trends By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER
The Connecticut affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure presented its 2011 Community Profile of Connecticut at a news conference at the state Capitol Monday identifying areas with high rates of breast cancer, mortality and late-stage diagnosis. A late-stage diagnosis comes when a health provider finds the cancer when it reaches stages three or four. Having had time to progress without treatment, the disease is more difficult to treat effectively at that point, increasing the chances of death. New Britain was one of 14 municipalities to be identified with a high late-stage diagnosis rate, along with the surrounding towns of Hartford, West Hartford and Wethersfield. The report did not contain figures showing the specific numbers of cases.
The report indicated that African-American women in urban centers and Hispanic women in manufacturing areas are among the least likely in the state to have a mammography screening. According to health providers, late-stage diagnosis also correlates to lower socioeconomic status. Lowerincome people tend to have limited access to care, a lack of health insurance, limited exposure to breast cancer education, have language barriers, and put family responsibilities before one’s own health care, according to Komen for the Cure. “Women prioritize their needs last, after all else,” said Kristen Noelle Hatcher, the former director of grants and mission initiatives for Komen who helped assemble the community profile. According to William Gerrish, spokesman with the state Department of Health, “Breast cancer incidence rates are influenced by rates of mammographic screening. A town may have a higher incidence
SUSAN G. KOMEN FOR THE CURE: COMMUNITY PROFILE OF BREAST CANCER IN CONNECTICUT
rate in part because more women are being screened for breast cancer. In such a case, the percentage of women diagnosed with late-stage cancer would likely be lower because many breast cancers would have been detected at an early age.” Komen Connecticut is now offering grants of up to $50,000 to agencies and nonprofit organiza-
tions in affected communities to help implement health programs and services. Grant efforts can also help high-risk, under-insured or uninsured women receive free or low-cost mammograms. On a wider scale, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that Connecticut has the second highest rate of female
breast cancer in the nation, with 2,920 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in 2008. Mortality rates have decreased, however, since the previous study in 2009, dropping the state from 16th to 34th in mortality rate.

A ‘relay’ good school board choice
No tax hike sounds good
Jen Win-Johnson, who is running for the Board of Education in Newington, is an excellent candidate and would be a valued addition to the board. Jen has been involved in many community organizations and events, including Ne wington’s American CancerSociety Relay for Life. She has been the team co-captain of the Pink Ladies team for the past three years. Her leadership and commitment have helped the team
Money is tight today. It seems a dollar doesn’t go as far as it used to, and I need to make every penny work for my family. With times like these, I want a mayor who will keep in mind how financially strapped most residents are and will actually do something about it. Mayor Mike Lenares has promised that he won’t increase our taxes at all, period. I really like that. I personally could really use the break, and I appreciate what he wants to do for the families in town.
To the editor:
become the top fundraising team in Newington in 2010. She is driven, extremely organized and is always full of creative ideas to strengthen the community through fundraising. We, the Pink Ladies, have experienced her commitment to community firsthand and believe that Newington’s Board of Education would be lucky to have her. She is qualified, educated and most importantly driven by a strong set of morals and ethics. She is focused, capable, can do pretty much anything she puts her mind to and she does it with grace.

She’s dependable, honest, is a natural leader and an independent thinker. She is open-minded and approaches challenges with a positive attitude. She is a great leader, but also a wonderful listener and collaborator. She delegates, but will also take on any needed task herself with endless energy. Community and education have always been extremely important to Jen and her family. She takes her children’s education in the Newington public school system very seriously and has been involved, by volunteering and teaching, since her oldest was in kindergarten. She currently has four children in the public school system and we believe that she will take this position with the utmost responsibility. We are confident that Jen will bring the same leadership qualities that we’ve seen to help support our school system and Newington’s community.

To the editor,
At first I was worried about the education when he pledged no tax increases, but he promised that if necessary he can use money from the rainy day fund to take care of education. To me it seems that Mayor Mike Lenares wants to do everything he can to do what’s best for the Town of Newington and our residents. Therefore, I urge all residents to join me in voting for Mike Lenares and the entire Republican team. Jennifer Spano Newington
Happy Siegel is running To the editor:
I was so happy to learn that Jane Ancona Siegel is running for the Board of Education. She is an attorney in town practicing in Newington center. In addition to working here, she grew up in Newington and has chosen to stay here to raise her family. Her brothers and eight nieces and nephews also live here, so she is very rooted in Newington and wants to give back to the town she loves. Jane has three children currently in the Newington school system and is an involved mom who plays an active role in her children’s education. She is there every day and experiences the
education of our children firsthand. I think this would make her an excellent addition to the Board of Education. We need parents on the board who have a vested interest in our schools. Her three children are all very different, so I think this gives her the ability to appreciate a variety of concerns that parents may have, as chances are, she shares in those concerns as well. I know she will keep those concerns and the children in mind when serving on the board. Therefore, please join me in voting for Attorney Jane Ancona Siegel. Susan Goldman, Newington
Vote for my mom, please To the editor:
Please vote for my mom! Her name is Jane Ancona Siegel and she is running for the Board of Education. She has three kids — Daniel, Matthew and Hannah. She is an attorney and works at Ancona & Siegel. My mother is the president of Newington SEPTA. My mom is super smart. I think she will do an excellent job as a member of the Board of Ed. I feel so lucky because she is very sweet and couldn’t be a better mom. My mom is a lifelong resident of Newington. This is her favorite town. She wouldn’t want me to grow up anywhere else. Sadly, I am too young to vote for my mom, so I hope you will! Hannah Siegel Age 9, 4th Grade Newington

Democrat likes Lenares
Friday, October 7, 2011 | 11
To the editor:
I am writing today to extend my support for Mike Lenares for mayor. Although I am a registered Democrat, I am voting for Mayor Lenares along with other members of the Republican team. I am very pleased with the philosophies and approach of Mayor Mike Lenares. They pledge not to play partisan politics, and Mayor Lenares has proven this to be true when he appointed a Democrat, Scott McBride, as deputy mayor. Mayor Lenares brings a sense of civility to the Town Council and has taken the approach of working together. I know he and the rest of his team will continue to do what’s best for Newington. I am confident that Mayor Lenares and members of his team will truly put Newington first and do what’s best for the Town of Newington. It’s not just a campaign slogan, and that’s why Mike Lenares and members of the Newington Republican team have my vote. Rose Gallichio, Newington

He’s had an itch to get into town government for a while, but didn’t feel it would be the right thing to do until retirement. Now he has finally decided to run for Town Council in the November election. “I’ve always been interested in politics but I always felt as a teacher it was a conflict of interest — that I really couldn’t be involved with the government and employed by the government at the same time,” said Vessella. “I retired two years ago and that’s when I started getting involved.” That he did.

Lenares promises no tax increase if elected
At a recent fundraiser, Mayor Mike Lenares declared that it’s time for a “No Tax Increase”budget and that if elected with his team of republicans, he will do just that. Lenares said,“Enough is enough. People are hurting. The federal and state budgets are in chaos and Newington residents just need a break.” He said many Newington residents have lost their jobs and most
others either haven’t gotten a raise or have had their incomes cut. “I’ve done four town budgets and I know how to produce a budget that keeps taxes flat and still have no cuts to services or education,” he said. When asked about the Board of Education and its demands, Lenares said, “The board will definitely have to sharpen their pencils. However, should they need some
help, we have a huge rainy day fund that I would tap to adequately fund our schools. In these economic times, if this isn’t a rainy day, I don’t know what is.” Apparently, the town has a rainy day fund of approximately $14.5 million that is expected to grow by at least another $1 million this year. Lenares said that residents simply need a tax break and that he and his team will provide it if elected.

State’s higher education board holds inaugural meeting at CCSU By STEPHANIE REITZ ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW BRITAIN — A new board overseeing 17 state colleges and universities kicked off its work Tuesday, saying it wants to ensure student success during and after college without diluting each school’s personality and signature programs. Lewis Robinson Jr., chairman of the new Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education, said at its inaugural meeting that he and others share a sense of urgency to prepare students to compete in a world where adaptability, problem solving, strong communication skills and curiosity are critical. “I think if we infuse these characteristics into the various disciplines and various programs, Connecticut rises to the top of the heap,” Robinson said Tuesday as the board met at Central Connecticut State University, the largest institution under its control. The new board is still a project in the works, though, because six of its 15 voting members have not yet been chosen. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has three appointments to make; state Senate President Donald Williams has one; and two student representatives are being elected this fall from among the colleges and universities. Malloy and top legislators pushed the General Assembly this year to create the regents board, saying it will make the colleges operate more efficiently and help them respond quickly to business and academic trends with new degree programs. The board is overseeing the budgets, policies, curriculum and operations of 17 institutions with
combined budgets of more than $1 billion: Connecticut’s 12 community colleges, its online Charter Oak State College and the fouryear Eastern, Western, Southern and Central Connecticut State universities. About 95,000 students attend the institutions, or about half of the people in Connecticut who are enrolled in higher education. The rest attend the University of Connecticut, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and various private colleges and universities. UConn’s board of trustees is not affected by the reorganization that created the new Board of Regents of Higher Education, but the old boards that ran the 17 state colleges and universities are winding up their work through year’s end and must submit all of their actions to the regents for ratification. The reorganization has sparked some controversy. Some community college students and leaders, in particular, have said they worry those institutions might be overshadowed by the four-year schools because their missions are so different and unique. Michael Meotti, who was the regents’ interim president before Robert Kennedy was appointed to that position, has said that contrary to playing a secondary role, the community colleges are likely to get more of what their students need than ever before because the twoyear schools are linked so closely with other colleges and universities. For instance, recent studies have found that many students in fouryear public universities are taking classes concurrently at community colleges to complete prerequisites or when courses they need at their
universities are full or not offered in a particular semester. That overlap seems to fit the students’ needs, but hasn’t been recognized or fostered as much by education leaders as it should have been, said Meotti, who is now the regents’ executive vice president. The regents also start their work at a time when budgets are tight and administrators have been trying to absorb cuts without letting class sizes get too large. This year’s state higher education funding is about $292 million, and it’s expected to drop to around $284.5 million next year. That’s down from a high point of $329 million in the 2007-08 academic year. Other income comes from tuition and fees, grants and other sources. “While the sacrifices are real, they’re not unexpected ... that’s the mandate we’re hearing from everywhere: We have to do more with less,” said Louise Feroe, acting chancellor of the Connecticut State University System, whose trustee board is being phased out and replaced by the regents. Kennedy, who started as president on an interim basis last month, said he will spend the next several months visiting the 16 campuses under the regents’ authority and meeting with the employees and students. He is also meeting with administrators of the Charter Oak online degree-granting program. “Each of the colleges and universities has a distinct niche and mission and, as I’m beginning to see now as I travel around to the different campuses, tremendous talent and much to offer our students in the state of Connecticut,” Kennedy said.

Indians come up short against Southington
Newington gets closer to cracking win column By EVAN MACY STAFF WRITER
NEWINGTON — When Southington quarterback Stephen Barmore called “QB-blast left” on a first-and-10 from the Blue Knights’ own 20, he may not have known it would be the key play in his team’s 13-6 victory over Newington Saturday night. But when he found the end zone 80 yards later, he probably had an inkling. “The hole was huge, I could drive a truck through it,” the sophomore signal caller said after the game. “Around the sideline down there Jared Degumbia came from the opposite side of the field and took out three defenders. A few key blocks and that’s why it was such a big run.” “If the holes are there, our guys are going to break it,”Southington head coach Mike Drury said, praising both his runners and offensive line. “The conditions have been rough the last couple games, there’s really not a lot of footing. They did a good job.” The run was the only score in the first half of play, and paired with a missed extra point, Southington’s 6-0 lead was far from a sure thing; especially against an Indian team that had three red zone opportunities, and would get two more in the second half. “Coach Drury said clean it up,” Barmore said, recalling a halftime conversation with his skipper. “We knew six points was not enough to win.” Barmore completed 11 passes for 77 yards in the win, but his 122 yards on the ground led a running attack that outgained Newington 240-100, key on a wet and soggy field. “The guys played their tails off,” Newington coach Roy Roberts said of his winless Indians, “and we got into the red zone. Who knows, if we punch a couple of those in there it’s anyone’s ball game.” The red zone struggles started

on the Indians’ opening drive. After driving all the way to the Blue Knights’ five yard line, Christian Beauford missed a field goal on fourth down, leaving Newington empty handed for the first time. Later in the second quarter, the Indians failed to turn a Barmore fumble at the Southington 20 into any points, with Jon Snyder’s pass picked off by Corbin Garry. Though the scoreboard may not reflect it, Snyder was dynamite in the game, going 14-for-33 for 177 yards. His favorite target, Zach Morris, caught eight passes for 138 yards. Also key on offense for the
Indians was running back Eric Ryan, whose 14 rushes netted 74 yards. Again deep in Blue Knight territory, a fourth-down attempt in the third quarter was fruitless, and another late in the fourth thanks to a Sixto Acosta fumble recovery ended with a ball hitting the end zone on fourth-and-three from the seven with just over six minutes to play in the game. “I told the kids keep your chins high,” Roberts said. “Anybody that’s been watching us has seen some improvements in certain areas, and that’s all I ask of the guys. We’re not happy with the outcome, but we did see come
progress tonight.” Newington got the ball back with 3:49 remaining in the game and drove all the way into the end zone, with an Eric Ryan run finally finding paint, cutting Southington’s lead to 13-6. But a failed onsides kick would spell defeat for the Indians and a third win for Southington. “I knew they’d be ready, they have a good coach,” Drury said of his Week 3 foe. “They came after it, they wanted to win. You always fear a team that has zero wins because they’re hungry for that next one.” The second Southington score came late in the third, a Matt
O’Connor 24-yard run that almost wasn’t. “I lowered my shoulder, that’s what I know how to do. I moved my feet, and I wanted that end zone bad,” the senior captain said of the play. “When I see that end zone coming that close, I’m scoring, and no one’s going to stop me.” With one of the season’s biggest tests behind them, the Indians have a lot to build on after the hard-fought loss. “Those guys are tough man,” Roberts said of Southington, “and for those guys being as tough as they are, our guys grew up tonight.”

Newington volleyball sweeps NB
DeBlois, Stamm lead team effort By MATT STRAUB STAFF WRITER
NEW BRITAIN — The Newington Indians have found a winning lineup after a couple of weeks of searching, while the New Britain Golden Hurricanes are searching for one after thinking they had one during a good start to the year. While there is plenty of time left in the girls volleyball season, it was clear that Wednesday night’s game between the teams saw squads going in different directions. Newington played well and, more importantly, cohesively in a three-game sweep of New Britain Sept. 28. Roxy DeBlois and Alizandra Stamm had eight blocks each for Newington, which is now 2-5 on the year but starting to look like a different team than the one that took some lumps early. This was, I think and I’m hoping, our breakout performance of the year,” Newington coach Jen Micowski said. “We’ve been struggling a little bit to come together and find a consistent lineup. I think today everything
started to click.” Things started well for Newington, which jumped out quickly in each of the first two games on the way to easy wins. Considering the competition Newington has played so far this year and the way that schedule has fallen, the fact that Newington was sharp early in the game was particularly impressive. “This was our third game this week so this has been a tiring week for us, but we came out with a lot of energy,” Micowski said. “Our hitters took control at the net, our defensive players made excellent passes to lead our attack, and I think things just went our way tonight. Hopefully, we can run with this because now we’ve seen the kind of team we can be.” New Britain (3-3) certainly knew what the Indians could do coming into the night, and the outcome of the game did nothing to change the Hurricanes’ mind. “I knew Newington wasn’t a 1-5 team. They definitely have a good team They’re very wellcoached and [DeBlois] is a very good player,” New Britain coach Michelle Abraham said. Abraham made some changes to her lineup in part for disciplinary reasons, and the Hurricanes suddenly looked anything but like the team that started 2-1.
“We had too many lapses of communication,” Abraham said. “Who was going to get the ball, who wanted the ball. We just weren’t together tonight.” Micowski’s squad was, and that made all the difference in its win. Madison Sullivan and Megan Hinchcliffe were strong on defense and the Indians showed depth on offense. “I think Roxy and [Stamm] both had eight kills tonight and the rest of the team combined for maybe 10 more,” Micowski said. “It was a collective effort today. When you’re putting the ball away collectively that many times, you’re going to be on the winning side of things the majority of the time.” Those wins will come more often if the Indians can keep their mental toughness, something they have managed to do so far despite the early adversity. “It’s tough when you open your season against the three best teams in our league,” Micowski said. “I don’t want to use that as an excuse because I think we could have played better at times in that match. But we’re moving in the right direction. I give my kids a lot of credit. We could have easily packed it in at 1-5, but they don’t do that.

Newington hurt by missed chances in red zone By EVAN MACY STAFF WRITER
Football is a game won by taking advantage of opportunities. This fact could not have been more convincingly illustrated than in Southington’s 13-6 victory over Newington Saturday night. The Indians were in the red zone five times in the game, and only once did Newington put points on the board. That can either be attributed to a stifling defense, or to an offense that has had difficulties. “That’s the name of the game,” Newington head coach Roy Roberts said of the battle to convert
field position into points. “We had some guys out there playing their tails off. We got in the red zone, and who knows, if we punch a couple of those in it’s anybody’s ball game.” “They stepped up when they needed to,” Southington head coach Mike Drury said of the Blue Knights defense. “We have a lot of things to fix to not let them get down there, but when they needed to step up, they stepped up.” The Newington defense was also strong, putting the Indians in a position to win. It stopped the Blue Knights seven times without points, but the offense was unable to solidify the win, perhaps because
of yet another key Newington injury. “Jon [Snyder], he got tackled and twisted his ankle,”Roberts said of his starting quarterback, “and that kind of slowed our offense as well.” Though he only missed five plays (one of them a 54-yard completion by his backup, Bryan Esposito), Snyder was clearly not the same aggressive, out-of-thepocket quarterback upon his return midway through the third. “He’s a battler,” Roberts said. “I am proud of him. With that one wheel he was on, a lot of kids would have folded, but he kept playing.”
Snyder, who is expected to play next week, joins an ever increasing list of hurting Indians, a list that already includes offensive weapons Luis Figueroa and Freddie Burgos. The two teams now diverge toward different upcoming challenges. Southington next will face a talented Conard team, fresh off a big win over Glastonbury. Conard has a high-powered offense, and the Southington defense could face its biggest challenge yet. “They’re a smash-mouth team,” Drury said. “We just have to play that style of football. It’s going to be a tough matchup and we’re going to practice our tails off to
get ready.” Newington, however, will get a break from facing high powered teams like Glastonbury and Southington and face off against a more manageable East Hartford team. The Indians’ early season battles, particulary Saturday against the Blue Knights, will help prepare them to perhaps finally end the burden of a 13-game losing streak. “You saw a lot of guys grow up tonight and make plays,” Roberts said with pride. “You saw a lot of guys grow up tonight and get better, but by no means is this a moral victory, we don’t play for moral victories.”
