Make-a-whist foundation Newington chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa seeks better visibility for its charitable work By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

A Newington organization that for the last 60 years has performed lots of good work without tooting its own horn is finally stepping into the light. Alpha Delta Kappa is an international organization of women educators founded in 1947 and dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding. Newington founded the first Connecticut branch in 1955 and the group now has 32 members who teach — or have taught — in Newington. Some residents may remember the annual Military Whist held in Volume 53, No. 54

the cafeteria at Newington High School, which raises money for their efforts. More than $1,200 was raised last year. Monies go to many different causes, including the annual Margaret Clark Scholarship, which goes to a female student pursuing teaching. Newington Human Services is also a beneficiary, through its Adopt-a-Family program and the Fuel Bank. They’ve also sent care packages to troops in Afghanistan, helped victims of domestic violence at the Prudence Crandall Center in New Britain, collected eyeglasses for the Lions Club and books for Books To Dream, which went to underprivileged children. All chapters across the state also give money toward two annual $1,500 scholarships for girls pursuing teaching studies. “There’s not a better feeling in the world than knowing you’ve

Lori DiPietro, health educator with the Central CT Health District, discusses radon testing with Newington resident Mark Dzamba Wednesday at the Lucy Robbins Welles Library.

Residents educated on radon danger By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

Not only is January Personal Self-Defense Awareness Month and Glaucoma Awareness Month — it’s also Radon Awareness Month. In honor of the designation, the Central Connecticut Health District held an informational booth at the Lucy Robbins Welles Library Wednesday after-

noon. Health Educator Lori DiPietro handed out radon test kits to over a dozen visitors in the first hour she was there Wednesday. “It’s been really popular; a lot of people in Newington are looking to do this, which is great,” said DiPietro, who also went to the Berlin-Peck Library and the Cora J. Belden Library in Rocky Hill this week to discuss the

issue. “A lot of people know about carbon monoxide but they don’t know the dangers of radon,” she explained. “It takes about 30 years of exposure to radon to develop cancer.” The radioactive gas is a breakdown of uranium commonly found in rock, soil and water but drawn into homes through cracks

NEWINGTON TOWN CRIER

Public encouraged to attend budget meetings PET OF THE WEEK: ZOEY To the Editor: It is that time of year again when the Town and Board of Education budgets are formulated and voted on for the next fiscal year. The budget meetings are open to the public. Yes, you can catch them live on NCTV; however, subtleties are missed. Body language, important in understanding dynamics, is not captured by the cameras. Attending these meetings, while not a high point in Newington’s social scene, provides a unique insight into what is going on and sends a message to the elected officials around the table that there are interested citizens who

want to know how their tax dollars are going to be spent. Of significant importance this year are the plans being made for a new Community Center and for Renovation of our Town Hall. For the past several years the Town Hall Renovations Committee has been meeting to formulate a plan as to how to renovate our Town Hall to best meet the needs of all departments. After many months of deliberations, the decision has been made to build a new Community Center. Plans for the Community Center include housing the Parks and Recreation Department as well as some, but not all, of their

We have attended most of these meetings since October 2012 and very few residents, if any, are present. Once these plans have been approved, public hearings will be held and a referendum scheduled for Newington residents to vote “YES” or “NO.” Hindsight is 20/20. Please don’t wait for the public hearings or the referendum to voice your opinions and concerns. Your voices need to be heard now! Please be informed before you cast your vote.

Please consider attending the meetings to see what is going on. The Town Hall Renovations Committee will next meet on Monday in Room L101 at 5 p.m. Hope to see you there.

Zoey is the sweetest girl and has become a shelter favorite here. She is a 4-year-old purebred Persian, and she is completely blind, so families interested in her should be sure that they have an appropriate household for her needs. She has lived with cats and may not mind sharing her home with another but we are unsure about dogs. As you can imagine she can get spooked easily and should be with children 10-plus who are cat savvy. Come down to the Newington Humane Society today to see if Zoey is a good fit for your family!

Newington singer Kerri Powers releases self-titled CD By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

Newington resident Kerri Powers has many talents. Songwriting, singing and creating visual mixed-media art are among the more widely known. Those who know the bluesy/ Americana artist or who would like to can check out her art at the Lucy Robbins Welles Library, where it will be on display throughout the month of February. She will also be the guest of honor at the Arch Street Tavern on the evening of Feb. 14, for a party celebrating the release of her new self-titled album. Her new songs are getting more and more airplay on local radio stations, including WWUH (West Hartford), WESU (Middletown), WHUS (Storrs) and WUMB (Boston). She also performs frequently at the Infinity Music Hall in Norfolk and has toured the world with Canadian songwriter Fred Eaglesmith. Powers, 46, grew up in southeastern Massachusetts and has also lived in Manchester and Coventry. She married Newington native

John Interlandi this past October, and the pair has lived in downtown Newington for almost three years. After she wrote her first song when she was eight, patrons of local cafes heard her sing and play acoustic guitar. Her first album, “Faith in the Shadows,” was released in 2009 and has been described as “sensual and compelling” with “smoky vocals and big, tremulous guitar sweeps.” In her own words, the new album, officially released Wednesday, is “nostalgic.” “It was an unexpected endeavor this year,” Powers says. “I wasn’t planning on recording anything this soon, but I was encouraged to do it and I’m glad I did.” She also gives credit to her husband for his undying support, as well as producer Eric Lichter of Dirt Floor Studios in Chester. “It’s a magical place and I don’t think the album would be as good as it is without that special touch; they have an organic, natural vibe there that allows an artist to make their art.” Within the next few months Powers has several local perfor-

mances planned, but she’s also seeking out an agent and hoping to tour nationally. The album release party is Feb. 14 at 10 p.m. at the Arch Street Tavern in Hartford. She will open for Shawn Colvin at Infinity Music Hall on Feb. 23, and her artwork will be on display Feb. 1-28 in the community room of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library, 95 Cedar Street in Newington.

in the foundation. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the number one cause among non-smokers. The fact that it’s invisible, odorless and tasteless makes it hard to detect. “I keep hearing about radon and I figure I should get my house tested,” said Mark Dzamba, a Newington resident who stopped by the library Wednesday to learn more and pick up a test kit, which was provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Health. The testing device is placed in a room used frequently and left in place for a minimum of 48 hours before being sent off to a lab (postage is included in the kits). Radon concentration is measured in picocuries per liter (pCi/L). If the test results indicate levels are between 2.0 and 4.0

pCi/L or greater, the homeowner should take action to reduce the radon in their home by installing a mitigation system. This might include a ventilator and/ or sub-slab depressurization system, which in Connecticut usually costs $1,200 to $1,500. “I tested way back when, but I wanted to see if anything changed,” said Aline Degasperis, another Newington resident who picked up a test kit Wednesday for her home and another for her sister’s home. “I’ve been hearing a lot of that today; people asking if they can have kits for other family mem- Radon exposure over the course of a three decades can lead to lung cancer. bers,” said DiPietro, who was happy to accommodate these requests. For those who missed the presentation, another will be given at the Wethersfield Library this Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. The Central Connecticut Health District also sells radon test kits for $8 throughout the year.

Newington-Berlin-Manchester Indians thriving on ice By CHRIS MCLAUGHLIN STAFF WRITER

While the 2013-14 season has seen the Newington-BerlinManchester ice hockey team make the transition from Division III to Division II, the two-time defending champions have not only handled the increased competition, but at 7-3-1, the Indians have been thriving. Over the past several seasons, head coach Dave Harackiewicz has put one of the most successful teams in the state out on the ice, and though last year’s leading scorer Brandon Richard and all-state goalie Drew O’Leary have graduated, the returning depth has the Indians right back to where they were a season ago. “Right now we’re fourth in the state in points, and with seven wins we’re right in the mix,” Harackiewicz said. “Our objective is to finish in the

The Indians’ Marco DiPaola is one of the team’s top players on the face-off.

top four in the conference and we’re currently in second place. Division II has been tough and we still have a long way to go, but for the most part if we come to play we can compete, so it will be interesting to see how it all shapes up.” The loss of O’Leary raised several

questions at the start of the season, as he was in the net for the bulk of both title runs, but so far this season the tandem of Tom Wood and Cam Criniti have done a fantastic job. Each has posted a shutout in the early going, and they’ve combined to make 171 saves while allowing well

under two goals per game, according to maxpreps.com. They’ve had a stabilizing presence in the net for the Indians and have helped the team come out on top in four games decided by two or fewer goals. “We started Tom Wood for the first 10 games and have used Cam Criniti recently, and the play of both allows us to ride the hot hand,” Harackiewicz said. “Both have had some really good games, and they really challenge each other in practice and push each other to get better. Right now they are two of the top goalies in the conference.” Another area of strength for the Indians has been their defense. Harackiewicz has raved about the impact junior Mitch Pitkin has had on the defensive end, and with three goals and five assists on the season, he adds some offensive punch as well. Senior captain Mike Davies and

senior Nick Waznia have been huge on the defensive end as well, boosting the Indians to a 4-0-1 record over the last five games. “We always stress defense and we’ve had several standouts on the defensive end,” Harackiewicz said. “Mitch Pitkin has been a stalwart for us and Nick Waznia gives us a very physical presence. Another player who has done very well for us is Mike Davies. He plays all out and tries to take over games with his defense, which is going to be key for us down the stretch.” While the defense and goaltending have been solid, Harackiewicz describes his offense as “up and down.” In the Indians’ wins, they average a little over five goals a game (although a 10- and seven-goal outburst inflates that a little bit). In the losses, Newington-BerlinManchester averages under one goal per game. Senior captain Dan Roberts leads the way with 12 goals on the season and Dante Gugliotti has eight, but Harackiewicz is searching for more offensive consistency from his second line. “We have to find another line of scoring,” Harackiewicz said. “Some games we score a lot of goals, others we struggle, so we’re trying to develop more consistency. Roberts, out top scorer, has been a really consistent worker and is very dangerous with the puck near the net. Dante Gugliotti has had some key goals, including a game winner for us. Our second line has had some trouble, but we expect them to break out. Kevin Landau has had some big goals for us in the second line and Marco DiPaola is our best faceoff guy. He and his brother Luca can really surprise people.” One more win puts the Indians back in the playoffs, but they face a difficult roadblock in their next game. Saturday’s game pits them against rival Hall-Southington, and the two teams have had some battles over the years. Although talks of a three-peat are far from anyone on the team’s mind, the 2013-14 Indians have shown they can hang with the best teams not only in Connecticut, but in all of New England.
