Newington Kiwanis get firsthand account of Boston bombing By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

NEW BRITAIN — April 15 of this year started off as a quiet day for Harold Kramer, chief operating officer of the ARRL National Association for Amateur Radio, based in Newington. But on volunteer duty as a ham radio operator at the Boston Marathon, it soon became a day he would never forget. Volume 53, No. 30

Kramer, a Cheshire resident whose call sign is WJ1B, witnessed the Boston bombings that left three people dead and another 260-plus injured. He recounted his experience at a meeting of the Newington Kiwanis Monday at Paradise Pizza in New Britain. Kramer was one of 150 licensed “hams” who volunteered at the annual event, relaying information to and from the starting and finish lines, medical tents and buses on site. “My credentials were checked about 20 times,” he noticed, which led him to wonder how brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, — responsible for the terror attacks, slipped by unnoticed.

State Bond Commission OKs $460K grant to seal town landfill By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

The town’s landfill may finally be sealed after elected officials announced last Friday they garnered nearly half the necessary funding. The $460,000 grant requested by State Representative Sandy Nafis (D-Newington) and State Senator Paul Doyle (D-Wethersfield) was approved by the State Bond Commission and administered through the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) as part of its grants-in-aid to municipalities for improvements to incinerators and landfills. Town officials estimated the project’s total cost to be no more than $900,000, so the grant will ultimately lessen the town’s portion after closure specifics are determined. The area has not collected any waste for more than a decade, as all vegetative and bulky refuse is processed through the town’s transfer station and disposed of elsewhere. But the town is mandated to seal the landfill once closed, so officials are gradually collecting enough funds to complete the process. “This has been on our radar for a number of years and we’ve been putting small amounts of money aside but not enough to make a real dent in it. This will go along way to helping us move forward,” Town Manager John Salomone said Tuesday. Capping it would ensure longterm protection for the surrounding area, which includes Churchhill Park, adjacent to the Main Street site. A drainage system would be installed to collect all runoff and reroute it into the sewage system, then the fill would be covered with an adequate amount of soil. “Once this land fill area is closed, we will be able to consider other uses for the site which could be extending the Churchill Park area,” Mayor

The State Bond Commission this week approved a $460,000 grant to assist in sealing the town landfill. If the town decides to close it, residents will be able to bring waste to the town transfer station at 281 Milk Lane.

Stephen Woods said in welcoming the news. “I can’t say exactly what they’re going to do with it, but at the very least it opens it up for another passive recreation area – something everybody in town could enjoy,” said Nafis, who learned about the growing need for the funding last December while meeting with Salomone and Newington Public Works staff. “It’s something they needed to do,” she added. “By us getting them some money they’re not going to have to take it out of the local property taxes; it really helps for the cost.” No decision to close the landfill has officially been made by the Town Council, whose members were surprised to hear about the award this week. “I am grateful that the state awarded this bond to Newington; if the Town Council should decide to close the landfill, this will be much needed funding,” said Councilor Beth DelBuono, who is hoping to learn more about the possibility in coming weeks. “It’s really quite frustrating as a

minority leader to not have had any information on this,” she explained. “In the two years I’ve been on the Council we have not had any discussion on closing the landfill in any way shape or form.” Citizens can still drop off refuse, leaves, brush, recycling and other bulky waste at the site on weekends only from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., since it is brought out-of-town for disposal. “At some point the transfer station will be modernized to make it more user-friendly,” Salomone said Tuesday.

As assistant to the Marathon’s Medical Director Chris Troyanos, he was inside the medical tent near the finish line when the first of two bombs exploded about 300 feet away. “All this white smoke started rolling in and people started looking at each other like, what the hell was that?” Kramer remembered. Suddenly the net control center that all operators were required to call every 30 minutes was flooded by reports coming in from up and down Boylston Street. “That’s when they started wheeling in people — some bleeding pretty badly — and all non-medical personnel were told to leave the tent,” said Kramer, who was asked to help bus dispatchers prepare to transport people out of the city. “People were screaming; it was one of the most bizarre scenes I’ve ever encountered,” he added. “I had to be prepared Erica Schmitt | Staff because anything could happen.

Area businesses take different tacks to find workers Mayor’s Some lured by opportunities for career advancement, accusations others by business location, salary, creative freedom a shock to candidate DelBuono By SCOTT WHIPPLE STAFF WRITER

A recent, nationwide survey by Atlanta-based Randstad found there is more to attracting top job candidates than pay. In fact, the differences between the sexes when considering an employer can be crucial. According to the survey of 7,000 people by the human resources firm, location is key for women workers; 44 percent of female respondents chose that as an important employer attribute compared to 35 percent of men. When choosing to work for an employer, 42 percent of men look for opportunities to advance versus 36 percent of women. Additionally, the financial health of a company is more important to male respondents (36 percent of men versus 28 percent of women). 37 percent of women respondents chose workplace flexibility as an important employer attribute, compared to only 26 percent of men. Closer to home, Herald readers weighed in on survey results.

and CEO, Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce, says though the “glass ceilings” may not have been shattered, it was significantly cracked with ascension to CEO by women such as Carly Fiorina, formerly with Hewlett Packard. “Demographics point to people marrying and starting families later in life; so, both genders are cognizant of upward mobility in their careers and both want to participate in their children’s upbringing,” he said. Steven Hanks, chief medical officer at the Hospital of Central Connecticut, says gender differences have blurred and cites the rise of two-earner households with more wives becoming the higher wage earner.

off because my kid was sick there was little understanding. My boss didn’t have children,” she said. Lesson: look for an employer who shows empathy. Phil Sherwood, New Britain Mayor Timothy O’Brien’s deputy chief of staff, says the survey points to lingering inequalities between men and women. “A woman working full time is still responsible for most of the household duties,” he says. “Men need to step it up in the home.” Sherwood’s wife, Dena, was drawn to her new job in New Hampshire because of its flexibility and family-friendly atmosphere. However, best-selling author and TV host, Diane Smith urges that you look for an employer where you can advance and make important contacts; “that’s far more valuable then a nearby, flexible employer. If you’re not attuned to job flexibility you could be passed over for promotion.” “More young couples want to live closer to work and in urban centers, near mass transportation and housing,” says Gerry Amodio, New Britain’s downtown director. “They’re willing to get by with less in exchange for quality family time.” According to Diane Alverio, principal, Alverio & Co., Farmington, women with families should weigh several factors including location to make sure they have the support system they need while they work so they can attend kids’ events. Chris DeFrancesco, communications specialist based in Farmington, finds it hard to imagine that either gender has a monopoly on career advancement. For him, in this economy, job security trumps career progression. Michael Nicastro, president

In a July 26th article The Hartford Courant, the Mayor of Newington accuses me, his GOP opponent of “playing politics with a grant application to reconfigure Garfield Street.” The motion to table the issue was a  unanimous vote  in favor of delaying action. There was no comment on either side stating any concern regarding delaying the vote. It is a rare occasion when a unanimous vote occurs at a Newington Town Council meeting under Mayor Woods. It was shocking for the Mayor, to refer to it as “playing politics.” The Mayor did not argue the merits of the request at the Council table in any way, shape or form. He simply voted to table the vote like the other eight Town Council members. There are three issues with regard to this grant, green space by virtue of losing a portion of our park area, costs which have not been fully articulated, and safety as purported by the Town Manager, Town Engineer and the Mayor.  In addition, Don Woods, Chairman of the Parks and Recreation Commission, and Mayor Woods’ brother addressed the Council with concerns for how the road straightening would effect the park space. He stated that less space in the ball field would effect how the park is used for the Annual Extravaganza. Unfortunately, no safety or traffic data was provided prior to the Town Council meeting to afford the councilors on either side of the table to vote on the issue. Tabling the vote only made good sense in an effort to make sure that due diligence was accomplished. No politics were played, only the best interest of Newington was at the forefront. Beth A.

There are reasons why Brickhouse Bar & Grill has gained popularity over the last nine years while other places have been forced to close in the tough financial times. Great atmosphere, food and service are three that Owner John Tsakiris, a lifelong Newington resident, prides himself on maintaining to keep his customers happy. “We’re busier than we’ve ever been and I think it’s a testament to our consistency,” says Tsakiris, who bought the establishment ready to build his own menu after working in restaurants for more than two decades. That scratch-made menu is still evolving. Some enticing new additions this summer include his pulled pork, meatballs,

Guinness-battered fish and chips, two unique new wing sauces and some fun desserts: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup pie with raspberry sauce, anyone? “We’ve kept the same menu for the last four or five years, but change is good, and I listen to the masses,” Tsakiris says. “Gotta keep it creative.” But that doesn’t mean he’ll stop serving favorites like his double-stacked nachos and charcoal-grilled ½ pound Black

Angus burgers. Besides the new lunch and dinner options, they’re also upping the nighttime entertainment. Brickhouse features live music and a DJ on occasion, but Saturday, Aug. 17 will be the start of weekly Saturday trivia games. Two brand new pool tables were also brought in last week. Tsakiris is a hands-on kind of business owner, so you can find him joining his staff in pretty much every part of the job,

whether it be managing, cleaning, bartending or cooking — the latter is his specialty. Tsakiris is in the kitchen whipping up dishes daily, and a catering menu for small parties is available online at thebrickhousect.com. “I want people to know we’re not just a bar; this is a food destination, too,” he says. The Brickhouse Bar & Grill is located at 80 Market Square, Newington. (860) 6672112. Hours: Monday through

Thursday, noon to 1 a.m., Friday, noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Erica Schmitt can be reached at (860) 225-4601, ext. 210, or eschmitt@newbritainherald.com.

House OKs student loan deal By ANA RADELAT CONNECTICUTMIRROR

Connecticut’s House delegation split with the state’s U.S. senators Wednesday by voting for a bill that would lower interest rates on a popular student loan – at least temporarily. The House approved the student loan bill on a lopsided 392-31 vote. Every member of Connecticut’s House delegation supported the bill, which would lower interest rates on Stafford loans, which had shot up July 1 to 6.8 percent for undergraduates. Interest rates would be higher, however, for graduates and parents who borrow on behalf of their children. The deal lowers the rate for undergraduates to 3.86 percent. But it also ties the interest rate of Stafford loans to the value of U.S. Treasury bonds, which means rates are likely to rise as the economy recovers. Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2nd District, led the effort to sell the plan to House Democrats. Like many lawmakers who supported the bill, Courtney said, “It isn’t perfect.” But he said it was the best a divided Congress could do to help students enrolling for the fall term in the next few weeks. “There will be real borrower certainty and protection,” Courtney said.

The student loan bill is a compromise approved by the Senate earlier this month between Democrats who wanted to freeze the rate at 3.4 percent and Republicans who liked a GOP House bill that tied the loans to market interest rates. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, the state’s two Democratic senators, voted against the Senate deal because, they said, they were concerned rates would eventually rise so much that students would find it difficult to afford Stafford loans. But Courtney said the Senate deal was a great improvement over a “reckless” bill that House Republicans had approved in May “that would subject students to unpredictable rates that would reset annually throughout the life of the loan and cost Connecticut students and their families more.” While loan rates on the Stafford program will fluctuate under the compromise, they will be frozen for the life of a loan. The deal also lowered a cap on the interest rate, to 8.25 for undergraduates and higher for graduate students. Courtney and other Connecticut Democrats who supported the bill, including Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, said the bill’s approval is not the end of the issue and that they hope Congress modifies the program again before interest rates go up too

much. Make no mistake, even with this bill’s passage, there’s much more to be done to make college affordable,” Esty said. Rep. John Larson, D-1st District, commended Courtney for “his leadership on this issue.” “While the fight to reduce student debt is far from over, this bipartisan legislation provides much needed relief for our students and their families,” Larson said. Although Courtney and other Democratic supporters of the bill insisted it is a major improvement over the Republican bill approved in May, House Speaker John Boehner said it is “almost identical.” “Going forward, the whims of Washington politicians won’t dictate student loan interest rates, meaning more certainty and more opportunities for students to take advantage of lower rates,” Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said. The bill now goes to President Obama, who supports the legislation and is expected to sign it.

HARTFORD (AP) — Connecticut environmental officials are warning of dire consequences from climate change that will affect agriculture, dams and levees, waterfront habitats and public health. For example, sea level rise will leave Hammonasset Beach State Park, among Connecticut’s most popular state parks, mostly inundated by sea water by the end of the century, according to a new report by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Most agriculture in Connecticut is likely to be “highly impacted” by climate change “and most of these potential impacts are negative,” the report said. Maple syrup, dairy, warm weather produce, shellfish and apple and pear production will be affected by changes in temperature and the abundance of rain or lack of it, which could reduce production yields, lead to contamination of agricultural goods such as shellfish and the need for costly infrastructure to compensate for the damage. Climate change is “going to require some adaptation,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steven Reviczky. “You can see what’s happening,” he said. “The intensity of storms is pretty significant. The damage has been equally significant.” Connecticut was hit by three major storms in 14 months: Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011, followed by a freak nor’easter two months later and Superstorm Sandy in late October 2012. This summer, four tornadoes touched down in Connecticut, with one storm in north-central Connecticut on July 1 damaging tobacco netting and other farm equipment, buildings and crops. The report said climate changes are projected to be less in the Northeast, particularly for rain and snow, than the rest of the country. Connecticut agriculture as a result can take advantage of the projected longer growing season.

Malloy on $537M for DOT projects: It’s roads, it’s bridges — and it’s jobs By MARK PAZNIOKAS CONNECTICUTMIRROR

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy cast the annual approval of bonding for transportation projects Friday as a $537 million booster shot for the economy that will create thousands of construction jobs and renew tired infrastructure. “I’ve said this before, but I think it’s something that bears repeating: Many of the projects we approve at these meetings create jobs for Connecticut residents,” Malloy said. Malloy spoke after the monthly meeting of the State Bond Commission, a final and typically perfunctory step in providing funding for projects already approved by the General Assembly and reviewed by the administration. He sounded a theme likely to echo through his 2014 re-election campaign, though the first-term Democratic governor remained coy about his timetable for officially becoming a candidate. “It’s in the future – and not relatively close,” Malloy said. Malloy appears confident he can afford to wait and still easily raise the $250,000 in small-dollar donations necessary to qualify for public financing. After running in 2006 and 2010, Malloy has an extensive donor base. Senate Minority Leader John P. McKinney, R-Fairfield, who also intends to seek public financing, announced his candidacy Tuesday. It is McKinney’s first attempt at statewide office. Malloy did not directly comment on

McKinney’s entrance into the race for governor, but he strongly defended his administration’s approach to economic development. McKinney criticized Malloy for offering grants and loans to major employers. The governor said the state has provided assistance to 900 companies in his first term, compared with 119 aided in the eight years before he took office. “The vast, vast, vast majority of those are small businesses,” Malloy said. “That was a tool box I put together. That was a program I championed.” Malloy said he would prefer not to offer public subsidies to entice companies to move to or expand in Connecticut, but he must to compete with other governors and other states. “I’ve been very clear throughout my political career that if all states were to absent themselves from these programs, I would join that movement overnight,” he said. But Malloy made equally clear he is not ready to be labeled a candidate. “I’ve got a job to do,” Malloy said, waving off questions about re-election. On Friday, part of that job was reinforcing his administration’s message that it is aggressively maintaining and modernizing transportation infrastructure as it encourages job growth in a state that has recovered only half the jobs lost in the 2008 recession. Special transportation bonds backed by revenue from the gasoline tax typically are approved at the July meeting of the Bond Commission, allowing the Department of Transportation to prepare bids on a long list

of projects necessary to maintain the state’s highways and bridges. “Much of the funding will be used to leverage about $600 million in federal transportation aid to update, strengthen and improve the safety of Connecticut’s highways, bridges, rail and transit systems,” Malloy said. This year’s list of projects includes the widening of I-84 in Waterbury, providing long-sought relief for a bottleneck between exits 22 and 25A. It was added after other projects were completed under budget. “It’s a function of good prices, good management,” said James P. Redeker, the commissioner of transportation. Also on the list is 250 miles of repaving, including stretches of I-84 in Vernon and I-95 in Groton, the reconstruction of exits 5 and 6 on I-84 in Danbury, and the continued construction of the Q Bridge, which carries I-95 across New Haven Harbor. The transportation funds include $143 million for bus and rail improvements, $113 million for interstate highways, $44 million for intrastate highways, $30 million for local roads and $93.8 million for work on about 40 bridges. The combined state and federal spending will create or retain nearly 20,000 construction-related jobs, Malloy said. This story originally appeared at CTMirror. org, the website of The Connecticut Mirror, an independent nonprofit news organization covering government, politics and public policy in the state.
