Heart to Hartford State delegation discusses town’s legislative needs with council

By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

Money to continue progress with economic development and school construction in Newington was at the forefront of discussions between state legislators and town officials this week. Sitting in front of the Town Council Tuesday were state Sen. Paul Doyle and state Reps. Sandy Nafis, Tony Guerrera and Rick Lopes. The town’s legislative delegation meets with the council yearly around this time to answer questions, share updates on state business and most importantly, learn the town’s priorities and Volume 53, No. 55

Sandy Nafis money back to the community as possible,” he added, acknowledging a $2 million grant to demolish the former National Welding property that See STATE, Page 10

Radio host Steve Parker, a childhood friend of Bob Seiler, talks with Seiler’s son Jonathan at Paradise Pizza in New Britain, where family and friends shared memories of him Monday night.

Memories flow at celebration of the life of Bob Seiler

By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

“What do you need? I’ll take care of it.” Most who knew the late Bob Seiler were very familiar with those words — frequently spoken by the longtime Newington volunteer and retired police sergeant. Upon his passing in late November, those who depended on the selfless acts of Seiler, 68,

felt somewhat helpless knowing he would no longer be there. More than 50 of his friends, family and co-workers comforted each other Monday night in remembrance at the Paradise Pizza Restaurant in New Britain, where the Newington Kiwanis Club, which he presided over, meets monthly. “He was more than a volunteer — for us he became a true friend,”

said Karen Futoma, director of the Newington Human Services Department, where Seiler volunteered in the town’s food bank and in other capacities for many years. Not only was he known there as “Turkey Bob” — being the happy face behind the yearly Thanksgiving Food Distribution to needy Newington families — See MEMORIES, Page 8

NEWINGTON TOWN CRIER

Human Services says thanks for the volunteering and donations To the Editor: Once again, The Newington community can wear a banner of pride with the overwhelming support to our department and the residents we serve. Food bank donations during the holidays allowed us to better meet the needs of many residents. Clothing Closet donations, especially winter outerwear, also increased. We received generous monetary donations to support the food bank and Special Needs Fund, which allow us to purchase needed items and assist eligible residents with emergency basic needs. The Newington Department of Human Services thanks all of the volunteers, civic organiza-

tions, religious groups, schools, businesses, and individual residents for their enthusiastic, generous and unwavering support throughout the year. Our programs help households consisting of families, single adults, senior citizens and persons with disabilities. Many residents are experiencing financial hardship due to issues such as chronic illness, sudden or long-term unemployment, or fixed/reduced income. The current economy continues to impact many households that are struggling just to cover their basic needs. 434 households were recipients of the holiday programs, an increase from last year. Close to 900 individuals were

served this year. Thousands of non-perishable and hundreds of perishable food and gift items were collected and donated by many organizations, businesses, schools, houses of worship and individuals. Several thousand gift and food items were collected through two Stuff-a-Cruiser events. A critical component of this program is the volunteer participation of individuals from civic, religious groups, schools, town departments, business groups and the community at large. Many new volunteers joined us this year, with over 100 individuals helping staff pick up food and gift donations, deliver to homebound residents, move food from one location to another in town hall, re-stock the food bank and sort/set up and distribute gifts and toys. We are including a sampling of highlights to illustrate the depth of generosity from the Newington community. While we are unable to list all of the volunteers and contributors, we want to express our sincere appreciation to all of the organizations, businesses and individuals who helped to make this year brighter for those Newington residents in need.

Humane Society gets $3K MuttNation grant, PET OF THE WEEK: CINNAMON and will take part in Sunday’s Puppy Bowl Cinnamon is trying hard to By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

The Connecticut Humane Society is making national news this week. Not only did the non-profit animal welfare organization just receive a $3,000 grant from the MuttNation Foundation, a pet charity started by country singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert and her mother, Beverly — it’s also participating in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl again this year. “Miranda and I, along with three board members, send our congratulations to the worthy recipients of this year’s Mutts Across America: ‘50 Shelters, 50 States’ grants,” Beverly Lambert said in a statement. “In partnership with our RACE team we conducted an exhaustive search throughout the United States for shelters standing as an exemplary example in the fight to end animal homelessness, abuse and neglect. We are proud to award funding to the Connecticut Humane Society

s Ladie ith s t u w Hairc icia Al $16!! only

for the efforts they have exhibited in the fight.” One shelter was selected in each of the 50 states, and the Humane Society is proud to be the recipient. “We’re very, very excited they selected us,” Alicia Wright, public relations director, said Monday. “We have not yet set aside a special program to benefit from the money, but you can certainly rest assured it will go towards saving animals lives,” she added. “They co-founded the organization seven years ago as a result of their love for pets, and ever since have just been doing really great things in the community.” According to MuttNation staff, the CT Humane Society was recognized for its high adoption rate (91 percent in 2013), volunteerism (over 380 volunteers), fiscal responsibility and fundraising activity, including mail campaigns, online fundraising, crowdsource fundraising, and signature events. And their animals will be in the spotlight again this year in

Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl — a pet lovers’ alternative to the Super Bowl. In fact, local puppies from the Newington shelter will be featured in promotions all this week. “We will have puppies at four different promotions,” Wright said. “The best part of this event is that it showcases adoptable pets from shelters all around the country,” she continued. “There are so many pets in need and this is a really fun and tangible way to get them out there.” Eight Connecticut puppies will be on The Today Show, broadcast live on NBC-30 this Sunday, Feb. 2, from 8 to 9 p.m. Among other promotional events, the CT Humane Society will be at the Nasdaq Closing Bell Ceremony today, from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. Watch it live at NASDAQ.com. The Puppy Bowl is this Sunday at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet. Erica Schmitt can be reached at (860) 225-4601, ext. 210, or eschmitt@newbritainherald.com.

get used to things here, but she would much rather be at home snuggling by the heater. It takes 5-year-old Cinnamon a few minutes to warm up to attention, but she does begin to purr and get comfortable with some gentle petting. Orange with a chest of white, this little kitty is cute as a button. Cinnamon would do well in a quiet household with older children who are respectful of felines. Come to the Newington shelter today and you may find a new friend to warm your heart. Remember, the Connecticut Humane Society has no time limits for adoption. Inquiries for adoption should be made at the Connecticut Humane Society located at 701 Russell Road in Newington or by calling (860) 594-4500 or toll free at 1-800-452-0114. The Connecticut Humane Society is a private organization with branch shelters in Waterford, Westport and

Stew Leonard’s named among best places to work in Connecticut

NORWALK — Stew Leonard’s was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. This ninth annual program was created by the Hartford Business Journal, Best Companies Group and sponsored by Hooker & Holcombe Companies. This is the fourth consecutive year that the family-owned retailer has been named to the list. “One thing I’ve learned from growing up in this business is that you can’t create happy customers without happy team members. If we want to make Stew Leonard’s a great place to shop, we have to first make it a great place to work,” said Stew Leonard Jr., CEO of Stew Leonard’s. Stew Leonard’s began as a small dairy store in Norwalk in 1969 with just seven employees. Since that time, the company has grown to a nearly $400 million business with more than 2,000 employees across four stores. Three of the stores are located in Connecticut. The Leonard family also makes it a point to give back to the

communities it serves. Local charitable groups and churches pick up nightly donations of unsold baked goods. The stores’ Wishing Wells collect thousands of dollars annually for local charities and almost 2,000 turkeys are distributed to families in need every Thanksgiving. Employees also volunteer for local mentoring programs through Stew Leonard’s and additionally host an annual food drive for a local food bank. Stew Leonard’s employs twice as many people per square foot as the average food retailer and provides at least 50 hours of training per year for full-time workers. Plus, advantages like Stew’s comprehensive benefits plan, extensive on-site medical screenings, and competitive pay package, which includes profit sharing, helps to attract and retain some of the best talent in the business. The rankings will be published in the March issue of the Hartford Business Journal. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Connecticut program, visit BestPlacestoWorkinCT.com.
