‘Radical redesign’ Friday, March 7, 2014

Cost of renovating Town Hall would be almost twice original estimate By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

A town project building committee expecting to review new design plans for a renovation to Newington Town Hall postponed its meeting Monday evening while the construction team works on “a radical redesign.” The new plan proposal will now be presented to the committee Monday, March 17, according to Chairman Clarke Castelle, who sat in on the design team’s most Volume 53, No. 59

recent work session a week ago. “They did some pretty radical redesign I’m still not sure I’m happy with and still couldn’t bring costs down to a reasonable level, so we all agreed they had nothing to present to committee,” he said Tuesday. “We gave them another two weeks to develop new ideas.” At their last meeting almost a month ago, committee members were disheartened to review new budgetary figures that were nearly double the $18 million originally projected. Estimates made two years before included just under $10 million for renovations to Town Hall, along with another $8 million for a new Mortensen Community Center, which would See REDESIGN, Page 13

Super Hoop-La at Newington H.S. this Friday By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

What began more than 30 years ago as “Cops vs. Robbers” — an adults-only basketball game to raise money for a local cause — later evolved into an elementary-aged game with a team from each school. Now in 2014 it’s called the Super HoopLa, is composed of teams from Newington’s four elementary and two middle schools, and serves as a fundraiser for the Newington Youth-Adult Council’s annual scholarship fund. It all goes down this Friday inside the Newington High School gymnasium, where more than 80 teams of students in

grades 4 through 8 are expected to compete. Students are in charge of picking their own teams with three to five players each, all representing their grade level for their respective schools. “It’s a fun event because elementary school kids compete and there’s not a whole lot of adults involved — the children run it themselves,” said Sandy Pilz, a physical education teacher at Martin Kellogg who organizes the evening. “They really seem to just enjoy the opportunity to play against each other in front of large crowds,” he added. Pilz’s sons, ages 21 and 25, referee the games along with teachers, who also help out at the

“We had a beautiful crowd last year,” he remembered. “The boys’ high school basketball coach looked up in the stands and said to me, ‘Gosh I wish we had this many people come to our games.’” The event is the Youth-Adult Council’s biggest fundraiser, and in recent years it allowed members to award scholarships to three Newington High School seniors who volunteer for community service. “It’s cool to see all the young kids play on the big high school stage — the community really looks forward to this,” Tim Manke, council chairman, said Tuesday.

Older students from Newington High School are also volunteering at the event, six of whom are a part of the YouthAdult Council. “It’s a chance to cheer on your elementary or middle school child and a fun night for the community,” Manke added. Pizza, candy, hot dogs and drinks will be for sale and there will be face painting.

Rotarians told of a ‘perfect storm’ of financial difficulties By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

Newington residents are in financial need now more than ever, according to the town’s Department of Human Services. Director Karen Futoma addressed the Newington Rotary Club at its meeting Wednesday to share their plight, which has increased substantially in the new year. “It’s the perfect storm,” she explained of the debilitating impact a number of combined factors have had, including the bitter cold and Congress’ failure to continue long-term unemployment benefits, a decision made in December. “We are seeing folks coming into the office that we’ve never seen before or haven’t seen since the stock market crashed in 2008,” Futoma continued. “We continue to be creative but you just reach a point where there’s not enough money to go around.” The department saw 70 new referral cases in January alone, and 80 new social work cases. Many of those reaching out for a hand are in their 50s and 60s,

She also encourages those who can afford to do so to donate to the food bank as the weather gets warmer, since most donations come in around the holidays and the shelves get almost bare in the summer months.

tificate. But part way through her studies, Provini jumped at the chance to start her own business and she has never looked back. “I was fortunate enough to have met so many people in the industry that when I came back here to visit some of the businesses I worked with asked me to handle their social media,” she remembers. “I managed their Facebooks and Instagrams, organized photo shoots, booked models and makeup artists, handled product placement … then they started referring me

to other businesses and it grew from there.” A lot of her business comes from word-of-mouth, but for Provini the real profit is watching her clients succeed. “I’m really blessed to continue growing and making an impact,” she explains. “A large part of our business is finding aspiring talent — musicians, models … we’re branching out to Massachusetts and New York clients too now, which is awesome.” And she’s officially in the running for Miss Connecticut. “I thought it would be a

great platform to share my story and inspire other people,” Provini says. If there’s one message she’d like to get across to young women working toward their own dreams, it’s this: “Don’t think of yourself as an employee, think of yourself as an owner. Never let anything stop you. There’s no end to what you’re able to do.” To learn more, visit Facebook. com/ProviniMarketing. Erica Schmitt can be reached at (860) 225-4601, ext. 210, or eschmitt@newbritainherald.com.

At the age off 22, Newington resident Alexis Provini is CEO of her own marketing and talent firm, Provini Marketing. Provini, also shown below, is a contestant in this year’s Miss Connecticut pageant.

AUTHOR JACQUELIN GORMAN AT WETHERSFIELD LIBRARY: Award-winning author Jacquelin Gorman will discuss and read from her new book, “The Viewing Room,” at Wethersfield Library on Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m. Winner of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction, “The Viewing Room” is a collection of stories that follow two hospital chaplains at a large Los Angeles hospital. In these stories, the chaplains console the living during the moments when they look upon their beloved for the last time in the viewing room. This moving and unsettling collection of stories shines a piercing light on the dark corners of our modern world, illuminating necessary truths that convey a clearer and, undoubtedly, greater vision of humanity. “The Viewing Room” is based on Jacquelin Gorman’s hospital chaplain experiences. Copies of “The Viewing Room” will be available for purchase and signing by Gorman. She is also the author of a critically acclaimed memoir, “The Seeing Glass.” Registration for this program is suggested. Call (860) 257-2811 to register or for more information.

You talk about many things with your loved ones:

from day-to-day details to big events. Sharing stories with those who matter most isn’t just important today; it will be especially significant when it’s time to honor and commemorate your lives.

Redesign of Town Hall too costly?

Memorialization at the end of life is more than it used to be. It can reflect a person’s life story and be transformative, healing and comforting.

be located on Willard Avenue. The committee’s goal is for the combined budget for both projects not to exceed $20 million. “I think with a little bit of work we can bring it down to pretty close to budget,” said Castelle, adding that the town paid off a lot of debt in the last two years, increasing its borrowing capacity substantially. Architects and engineers from Kaestle Boos Associates and Downes Construction Co. are looking for less expensive alternatives to renovating and reconfiguring town offices. Town enployees are looking into sharing conference rooms and prioritizing the need for excess electrical devices and structural elements. A design plan presented last month called for a single entrance to Town Hall off of Garfield Street and an atrium-style courtyard with open access to all offices.

Meaningful memorialization starts when loved ones talk about what matters most: memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.

Continued from Page 1

New ideas being considered call for retaining the existing entrance but still converting the building’s interior courtyard into an atrium so the public can access all departments through a single area. The committee may also decide construction work will be done in phases over the course of several years. One thing is for sure — a referendum for the public to consider any finalized proposal won’t happen this spring, as expected. And maybe not even by the fall. “I would love to have this referendum out to the public in the fall but I don’t think its likely; we have too much work to do,” Castelle explained. “We want to do this right, for the right cost and in a way that the public will support.”
