Judging by his community service, his membership in local clubs and civic organizations, and the effusive praise those who knew him lavish on him, very few people have epitomized what it means to be a community fixture the way former Newington resident Richard J. Adamick did. Although he moved to The Villages, Fla. in 2008, the impact he had on the people of Newington and his selfless spirit is still fresh in the minds of those who knew him. Evidently, that same spirit had a profound impact on the people of The Villages, who according to a May 1 article published in the Daily Sun, recently raised funds to purchase and install a bench dedicated in his honor. “The bench is a perfect place,” his wife, Mary Jean told the Daily Sun. “It’s overlooking a pond and golf course, under several palm trees. He loved water and loved playing golf, so it’s perfect.” Adamick, who passed away in July 2011 after a battle with cancer, served with the Newington police for 32 years, retiring as a master patrol officer.After his retirement,he volunteered as a reserve officer with the police department and for 10 years prior to his move to Florida, he volunteered as a driver for American Medical Response. Adamick, who served as a security officer with the U.S.A.F. Connecticut National Guard 103rd

Mary Jean Adamick and residents of The Villages, a Florida retirement community, dedicate a bench in honor of longtime Newington Police Officer and community fixture Richard J. Adamick.

Combat Support Squadron, was also a member of the Newington Police Department Alumni Association, the Police Association of Connecticut, the Fraternal Order of Police, the New Britain Elks Lodge No. 25, the Polish American Club of Newington, the Knights of Columbus, Council No. 3884, 3rd and 4th Degree and the Police and Fire Retirees Club of The Villages. After his move to Florida, Adamick continued in his lifelong pursuit of helping others. According to the Daily Sun, he volunteered at The Villages Hospital and provided rides for local residents. Well known as a kind, generous and civic-minded man to the people of Newington, he carried with him

the same approach to life after moving to The Villages, quickly making new friends, and once again, becoming a community fixture. According to The Villages resident Lenny Genova, who helped in the effort to purchase and dediciate the bench in his honor, Adamick was a unique, kind and welcoming man. “He always wanted people to feel comfortable and made them feel at home whether they were new to the area or long-time residents.” The bench, which according the the Daily Sun cost roughly $700 to purchase, now sits in The Villages inviting residents to relax, enjoy the view, and perhaps reflect on a man whose gracious spirit impacted nearly all who knew him.

Volunteers repair local home for Annual HomeFront Day By LLUVIA MARES STAFF WRITER

NEWINGTONâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;More than 45 volunteers swamped a house on Mohawk Street to make repairs on the roof, paint the rooms inside, and construct a handicap ramp, Saturday, during the 25th Annual HomeFront Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ago I was laid off from my job,and times got hard,â&#x20AC;?said Laurel Huggler, homeowner.â&#x20AC;&#x153;I called HomeFront and they evaluated my home and said they would help put a new roof on my house.â&#x20AC;? Huggler, who lives with her disabled husband, said when the volunteers from the Wethersfield Evangelical Free Church came to her house Friday night, they started working on the entire home, not just the roof. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted a roof and got so much more,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They kept

The annual event is a program designed to help homeowners in 10 different towns who are in need of home repairs but who are financially and physically unable to make those essential repairs to their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Much of the jump in requests is attributable to local families coping with unemployment,â&#x20AC;? said Sean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, event coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of those who will be helped also come from the rapidly growing population of older adults living on fixed incomes. Volunteers also plan to make crucial repairs for single-parent households and disabled homeowners.â&#x20AC;? This year, HomeFront hit its mark of 2,650 projects completed in the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, delivering $42 million in service to those in need.

More than 4,000 volunteers from 84 community groups are observing a local tradition 25 years in the making by revitalizing 68 homes and eight community centers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is life changing to be involved in projects like this,â&#x20AC;? said Gregg Miller, associate pastor at Wethersfield Evangelical Free Church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what Jesus Christ would have us do, reach out to our neighbors.â&#x20AC;? Miller said they plan to finish all the repairs by the end of the day, anything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get finished will be done tomorrow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to know each other better when you work elbow to elbow,â&#x20AC;? he said about the volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when Bella Velasco, 22, a student at you do these types of projects you also Central Connecticut State University get know the community better.â&#x20AC;? and church member, said she saw a flyer of the event posted on the bulletin at church and she knew she needed to be a part of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do this to spread the love of Jesus and we like to do whatever it takes to show this love,â&#x20AC;?Velasco said.

Officers also found three scales with cocaine residue, a coffee grinder and ammunition for the gun. The drugs are estimated to be worth between $120,000-to$400,000 depending on whether

    How Newington residents can help the Memorial Day Parade

PETS OF THE WEEK

To the editor:

On Saturday, May 26 the Newington Memorial Day Parade will once again be featured as one of Newington’s premiere events. Both the residents and the marchers will enjoy their interaction and both will be reminded of the purpose of the parade itself. As residents may have noticed, there are donation collectors around town. The money raised by the committee defrays the costs of bands and a variety of parade expenses. The Newington community has always assisted us in meeting our obligations. Can we have your assistance once again this year? The collection cans are located at the following locations: The Dunkin Donuts, the Polish Club on Wilson Avenue, the Citco Gas on Willard Avenue, Vittos Pizza, the Hidden Vine, Goldburgers, and Steven’s Place. If you wish to make a direction donation, forward your check to the Webster Bank at 1120 Main St. in Newington, attention Tom Gozzo. Thank you and enjoy the parade. Ken O’Brien, Chairman Newington Memorial Day Parade Committee

Town seeks $1.5M in grants for middle school tech-ed programs

By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

Shred Day a success

With the intermittent rain as a backdrop, 150 people brought more than 6,000 pounds of paper to Dutch Point Credit Union’s Newington Shred Day held last weekend. The shredded documents will be recycled into new paper rather than going to the landfill, according to Barbara Gunterman at DPCU. The environment was not the only beneficiary of the annual event. Community members donated funds, matched by DPCU, toward a new Smartboard to enhance children’s programming at the Lucy Robbins Welles Library in Newington.Dutch Point Credit Union supports being green and offers free Shred Days at their Newington, Wethersfield and Niantic branches. Visit www. dutchpoint.org for a list of events or for more information, call Barbara Gunterman at (860) 2575203. To help support the Lucy Robbins Welles Library and their programs, contact Donna Miller, library director at 860-665-8729.

include building a TV studio with broadcasting capabilities, adding computer labs to expand digital arts curriculum, adding STEM, computer network infrastructure and robotics education and adding a hospitality center to the culinary arts area. In both of the middle schools, existing shop areas would be transformed into academic space with a STEM focus and the food and sewing labs would be renovated. Another piece of school construction news also came at Tuesday night’s meeting. The Council approved the education specifications for the NHS Music Wing Expansion and Renovation Project, which would bring the facility into code compliance while also providing for the school’s quickly-growing music program. The project would include constructing a new building addition up to 5,000 sq. ft. in size, to expand current band and choral rooms, staff offices, and storage

areas. “This is long overdue, we’ve outgrown that area of the building,” said Dr. Collins. “Our music program is just doing such a phenomenal job and we need to provide more appropriate space

for them.”

The Town Council authorized the Board of Education to apply for $1.5 million in grant money to renovate the tech-ed wings of the high school and the town’s two middle schools, to align them more with 21st century curriculum. So instead of the old-school wooden cars of past “shop” classes as they used to be called, students will be designing high-powered mechanisms, exploring solar energy and incorporating STEM and robotics components into their learning. “Rather than design an engine that will get 12 miles to the gallon, maybe we’ll design one that will get 100 miles to the gallon,” Superintendent Dr. Bill Collins said Wednesday. The town’s Capital Improvements funding budgeted $150,000 for an architect to

design the plans to update the facilities current tech-labs, which according to Collins are “straight out of the 1950’s.” The existing program at the middle schools focuses on the basic elements of material processing, including the use of hand tools and lathe/table style power equipment. There are also basic cooking and sewing classes offered. But unlike the program at the high school, which has been partially modernized over the last couple of years, new technology has not yet been integrated into tech-ed at John Wallace and Martin Kellogg Middle Schools. If the state grants the funding, the project would be completed during the summer of 2013, as the town would not receive revenues until after July 1, 2013. The new programs would be made available to students in grades 5 through 12 in September 2013. In the high school, plans

Lucy Robbins Welles honors volunteers

NEWINGTON TOWN CRIER

Health District urges safe handling of dog food STAFF REPORT

The staff of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library recently hosted a breakfast to honor all the individuals who volunteer at the library throughout the year. Over 50 library staff and volunteers attended the event. Volunteers contributed 1,262 hours to the library last year. The library added 13,696 books to the collection and they all had barcodes and date due pockets attached, were stamped with the library name, and covered by library volunteers. More than 7,800 books that were withdrawn from the collection had to be deleted from the online catalog and this was also accomplished with the help of volunteers. Over 400,000 date due cards were sorted and more than 1,500 DVDs were cleaned. In addition to the volunteers who regularly help the staff maintain the libraryÂ&#x2019;s collections, there is also a loyal group of Friends of the Library who sort and organize thousands of books that are donated to the libraryÂ&#x2019;s book sales. Some volunteers have been with the library for more than 20 years. Above, library volunteers Ethel Lawton, left and Carol Lombardi at the breakfast.

The Central Connecticut Health District is encouraging residents to practice safe handling of pet food after a report of human illness in Connecticut was linked to a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Infantis associated with dog food. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 14 human illnesses occurred in nine states, including Connecticut. Multiple brands of dry food produced by Diamond Pet Foods, located in a single manufacturing facility in South Carolina, have been linked with the infections. The Department of Agriculture has identified 70 stores in Connecticut and most of them are feed and pet supply stores. These stores will be under inspection to determine the effectiveness of the recall. Consumers should check their homes for recalled dog food products and discard them promptly. People who think they might have become ill after contact with dry pet food or with an animal that

Humans can become ill by handling contaminated pet products, as well as coming into contact with pets or surfaces that have been contaminated. Hand washing is the most effective way to prevent illness.

Never allow them to touch or eat pet food. Human symptoms of Salmonella infection include fever and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain. People with these symptoms should contact their health care providers. Gastrointestinal illness may become severe and lead to hospitalization. In these patients, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream, and then to the other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. Salmonella can also sicken animals who eat food that is contaminated. Infected pets may be lethargic, and have diarrhea or blood diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets will only have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.

For most of those 400 years we’ve gotten along just fine. However, times have changed, dramatically. Now, all towns in our region face economic crunches. Our highways are clogged. Climate change is real and we see its effects in terrible storms, threats

Now that’s real leadership. Mitch Page, Newington

Cox Communications fails to take responsibility, be accountable To the editor:

Last week I attended my “first” Cox Advisory Council meeting. When I arrived members of the council thought that I was a new member of the council. When I told them I was there for public participation and saw the look on their faces, it seemed to me that this was a “first” for them as well. The members seemed very pleased to hear that I wanted to share my concerns with them and I got the feeling that they wished more people would come forward and publicly address their issues

with Cox Communications. During public participation I voiced my concerns regarding how Cox Communications notified customers of “important information regarding your video service” on a postcard that I received in November 2010. The postcard indicated that effective December 15, 2010, a digital receiver would be necessary in order to be able to receive Ch. 14 Public Access; Ch. 15 Public Access and Ch. 16 Government Access. The postcard stated that if you wanted to continue to receive these channels “at no additional cost”, that you should call Cox

Communications. On November 15, 2010, I called Cox to get more information. I was given the rates for the digital box and a quote for an installation fee. When I asked how to go about signing up for the channels at “no additional cost,” I was told that the “no additional cost” offer was only good through April 2012 at which time I would have to pay for the rental of the box. However, I was told that I could not request the “no additional cost” offer at this time and would have to call back in early December. I called back in early December and was given a different quote for the rental of the digital box and was told there was no offer for receiving these channels at “no additional cost.” A friend of mine also called Cox and was given a different answer. I then called for the third time and explained how confused I was with all these different rates and answers regarding receiving the channels at “no additional cost. ”I do not recall anyone telling me that there was a “cut off ” date as to when a customer had to request this “no additional cost

offer” nor do I recall being told that if I changed my service (i.e. switched from Statrter/Basic to Expanded) that the “no additional cost” offer would be void. I do recall being told that it would be mandatory for all channels to be digital in April 2012. Therefore, after April 2012, I would have to pay for the rental of the digital converter. It is now May 2012 and the “no additional cost” offer is over and I will now be paying 30% more for my cable services if I wish to continue to receive the local and government access channels. The council has filed a formal complaint with the Public Utility Regulatory Authority regarding this issue. Therefore, if you are affected by this change or if you have any other issues with Cox Communications, I would urge you to write a letter to the council. Their address is COX Cable Advisory Council, Manchester Franchise Area, P.O. BOX 1313, Glastonbury, CT 06033.

Town P&Z mulls allowing auto shops in town again By ERICA SCHMITT STAFF WRITER

services like oil changes, tire switches, wheel balancing, brake installation, and the changing bulbs, seatbelts, or wiper blades. The regulations however, would still prohibit general repair shops, (ie., those that fix engines, etc.) The Commission made sure to cover all the bases, so as not to run into a problem with future applicants. “I don’t want to see the turnpike turn into a used car lot,” remarked Commissioner Stanley Sobieski. The proposals also say businesses must be 100 feet or more from any church, school, playground or residence, with exceptions made if this requirement is deemed inappropriate under certain circumstances. Also, overhead service doors facing the street would not be permitted, unless on a corner lot. But the Commission won’t set any of these amendments in stone until they hear from residents. “I’d like the public to voice their opinion and people in the business to say what they really want,” said Commissioner Frank Aieta. “I think we’ve made tremendous headway from where we came from,” added Commissioner David Lenares. The next meeting of the Town Plan & Zoning Commission is Wednesday, May 23 in Town Hall. For more information on the town’s auto-related uses, visit newingtonct. gov.

After months of discussion regarding the town’s auto-related regulations,the Town Plan & Zoning Commission decided Wednesday evening to potentially re-allow gas stations, small-scale body shops and other automotive businesses to open in designated areas of Newington, after a ban prohibited them in 2007. The TPZ on deck at that time banned repair shops and dealerships (classified in zoning regulations as auto-related businesses) from opening in town, as “they already had enough of them” (there are currently 65) and they wanted to promote the Berlin Turnpike as more of a commercial-retail area. But the regulations were re-visited last September for a number of reasons, mainly to encourage the growth of the town’s tax base in the difficult economic times. “This would open up the Berlin Turnpike to new business, generate revenue and create jobs,” TPZ Chairman Dave Pruett said at Wednesday night’s meeting. After review by the Capitol Region Council of Governments, the TPZ will likely seek public input at their next meeting. Their proposals would grant special exception permits for the sale, rental or (limited) service of motor vehicles in the Berlin Turnpike business zone and industrial zones in town.
