School will take 1-year shot at hockey
Parents pick up price to

SOUTHWICK – Ice hockey
will be coming to the Southwick
Regional School.
Last Tuesday night, the
Southwick-Tolland-Granville
Regional School Committee
voted in favor of establishing a
junior varsity ice hockey program that would play the 201617 winter season.
The decision came after
a parent group petitioned the
school district and the committee in support of the sport.
Superintendent John Barry,
who will retire at the end of the
year, said he recommended a
one-year approval because he
believed there were enough students to get the program started, and is hopeful it will garner
interest to become a full-fledged
varsity program.
Ice hockey has been a tough
sell for the School Committee
in past years because of its high
cost, the size of the district, and
the fact there is no feeder program in Southwick.
The majority of students from
Southwick who play hockey
participate in Westfield youth
programs, then move on to travel teams, and even transfer out
of the district via school choice
to play high school level hockey.
Patrick Jubb led the parents
group to a School Committee
meeting in early April. He pre• See Hockey, page 13

SOUTHWICK – Freda
Brown, a John Mason Road
resident, is close to gaining
approval for a disc golf course
on 115 acres behind her home.
She’s been looking for a use for
the land—currently home to
agricultural fields, a forest and a
motocross track—since inheriting it 16 years ago.
“My main focus has always
been … to not have a development in my backyard,” she said.
“I think the land is too beautiful
to be put into a development.
My focus has always been to
find something that is sustainable and would be good for the
town, good for me and good for
“I think the land is too beautiful to be put into
a development. My focus has always been
to find something that is sustainable and
would be good for the town, good for me
and good for the environment.”
- Freda Brown
the environment.”
The land would yield 40
house lots if subdivided, Brown
said. She said she’d like to see
it remain undeveloped, but
needs to generate some revenue.
She had considered running a
vineyard, but found disc golf
— which allows the public to
also enjoy the property — the
perfect fit.
“It’s an activity that can be
a family activity, where families can learn a lifetime sport
together,” she said. “It will be
an affordable outdoor activity
where they don’t have to by special equipment or special uniforms, and it’s in a safe location.”
The project is still awaiting
Planning Board approval, but
the only objections from neighbors were to an earlier plan that
would have seen up to 4,000
cubic yards of earth removal to
build the parking lot. She relocated the proposed parking lot
in April so that the plan now
involves less than 1,000 cubic
yards of excavation, the amount
allowed by right in any building
project.
Entry to the disc golf facility
would follow an existing gravel farm path off John Mason
Road near the northern end of
the street, 500 feet south of Fred
Jackson Road. This access road
will be widened, but not paved.

Humason helped craft new records law
BOSTON — Massachusetts
Gov. Charlie Baker this month
signed an overhaul of state public records laws, according to
the State House News Service.
The bill, signed June 3, had
been unanimously approved by
the state House and Senate on
May 25, said state Sen. Donald
Humason, who served on the
conference committee that
authored the final version.
“Transparency and openness
in government are central to
a healthy democracy, and this
bill moves us in the right direction at the state and local levels,” said Humason. “It was an
honor to serve on the conference committee that dealt with
an issue as important as access
to public records, and I am
delighted that our final product
has received unanimous support from our colleagues.”
The public records law aims
to ensure fair accessibility of
government documents at the
state and local levels for members of the public. It had not
been updated since 1973. New
provisions include clear compliance timelines for state agencies and municipalities and caps
on fees that can be levied on
record requestors. In an effort
to bring state and local public
records into the 21st century,
the legislation also calls for
easier accessibility to electronic public records from public
agencies.
Humason, who represents
Agawam and 10 other cities and

towns, was one of three senators appointed to the conference committee that was tasked
with crafting compromise legislation between differing versions of the bill that were previously passed by the Senate and
the House of Representatives.
“My goal from the very
beginning of our consideration
of this bill was to deliver a bill
that is easy to understand,
serves the public interest, and
ensures that our big cities and
small, rural towns are able to
comply,” Humason said. “I
am proud to say we held true
to that goal and our final bill

New water guidelines topic of meeting
SOUTHWICK — The
Southwick Board of Water
Commissioners is hosting a
public informational meeting
to discuss the upcoming Water
Withdrawal Permit Renewal
on Monday, June 20, at 6 p.m.
in the Town Hall Auditorium
at 454 College Highway. This
meeting is open to all interested
parties.
The town’s current Water
Withdrawal Permit expires
in November, and the town
is in the process of renewing this permit through the
Massachusetts Department
of Environmental Protection.
The new permit guidelines will
impose new restrictions on
the town and all water users.
The impacts could include
restrictions on outdoor water
use, limit the town’s ability to
expand the water system to
new users and require changes
to the rate structure, among
other items.
“We’re looking at cost-effective and creative ways to meet
those permit restrictions,” said
Public Works Director Randal
Brown. “Right now, we draw at
our peak capacity.”
Brown said the town could
find it difficult to supply water
to a new industrial user, if a
water-intensive manufacturer,
for example, were to ask about
relocating to town. Additionally,
Brown said one-third of town
residences, generally in the
western half of town, are not
connected to the public water
supply.
The town received a
Sustainable Water Management
Initiative Grant from MassDEP
to help identify creative ways
to comply with the new permit requirements. This effort is
being headed by Abt Associates
and Pioneer Valley Planning
Commission. At this informational meeting, Abt and PVPC
will provide an overview of the
new permit and give their recommendations on how the town
could meet the new permit
requirements while maximizing water withdrawals through
new policies, water conservation measures, educational outreach, capital improvements,
and agreements with other
communities.
Anyone with questions should
contact the town Department of
Public Works at 413-569-6772.

dinner next week, and is asking

Each day, one service member
and 22 veterans take their lives
due to the effects of the “Invisible
Wounds of War.” Home Base

Massachusetts General Hospital
program, dedicated to healing
the invisible wounds of war for
service members, post-9/11 veterans and their families through
clinical care, wellness, education

Following the 2007 World
Series win, Red Sox players
met with wounded veterans at
the Walter Reed Army Medical
Center and learned of the challenges that many of our veterans
were facing. Home Base is the

the nation.

T
his Sunday, we recognize the men
who helped each of us become
who we are.
While it may not be as widely celebrated and commercialized as its companion
Mother’s Day, Father’s Day serves as
a reminder of the role a father plays in
shaping, both directly and indirectly, a
son’s or daughter’s life. Whether it was a
firm talking-to for breaking a rule, teaching a new skill or life lesson, or simply
going to work to provide for the family,
the examples and dedication have made
a significant impact.
The holiday itself has its start in
Washington state, when it was first celebrated on July 19, 1910. It survived
a movement during the ’20s and ’30s
to scrap the celebration of individual
holidays for parents in favor of “Parents
Day.” That idea lost traction during the
Great Depression and World War II,
when merchants realized the holiday
could be used to promote sales of men’s
goods, and patriots saw it as a way to
honor the (predominantly male) troops
overseas.
Interestingly, while states and communities had been celebrating fathers since
the turn of the last century, it was not
until 1972 that the holiday was officially
recognized across the country – the likely reason being that fathers don’t have
the same commercial appeal that mothers
do.
Maybe fathers aren’t as likely to want
flowers or ornate gifts, and at least
anecdotally, can be difficult to shop for.
No matter. It doesn’t cost anything to
commemorate good work. There’s no
standard manual for raising a child and
regardless of whether there was a second
parent to assist in the process, molding a
human being into a functioning member
of society was no easy task.
There were sporting events, dance
recitals and school field trips. There
were trips to and from the doctor’s
office — both scheduled and emergency.
Regardless of whether mom was the first
to give love or the first to hear secrets,
dad was usually there to fix “it” whenever “it” broke. He was there to help learn
to ride a bike or throw and kick a ball.
He volunteered as a coach – even when
he had no idea how to play.
Most noticeably, he was a rock, strong
during the hard times, even when he had
to mask the crumbling on the inside.
Whether you get him a gift or take him
out to a meal this Sunday, remember to
say “Thank you, dad, for being you, and
for all you do.”

WESTFIELD — Westfield
Creative Arts together with
Westfield on Weekends Inc.
recently announced “Slugger
Sam” as their newest Byers’
Choice character.
In honor of the Babe Ruth
League’s World Series scheduled to take place in Westfield’s
own Bullen’s Field Aug. 9 to 19,
this representation of a vintage
baseball player is the sixth in
the series of collectibles figurines, which have been so popular during “Westfield’s Dickens
Days” in December of each
year.
“The WOW board decided at
the end of last year, rather than
introducing this new character
during Dickens Days 2015, to
delay presentation of our next
figure until the middle of this
year to help build the excitement of Westfield’s hosting the
Babe Ruth World Series this
August,” explained Bob Plasse,
president of WOW.
“The shop at the Rinnova
Gallery has had a number of
requests since last December
about the arrival of the ‘next’
in this collectible series,” added
Lester Walshin, founder of
WCA.
Sam is 10 inches tall and holds
one end of a bat in his right
hand. The emblem on his uniform is a “W” — for the historical Westfield Wheelmen. The
price of one is $49.95, plus tax.
All proceeds from this sale will
be used to support the continuing community programs sponsored by WOW and WCA.
Residents are welcome to
stop by the Rinnova Gallery to
see “Slugger Sam” and place
an order. A variety of arts and
crafts will be on display, including gourds, lamps, Westfield
note cards, jewelry and some

Website will monitor river quality
In time for the summer recreation season, the Connecticut
River Watershed Council and
16 partners have launched the
2016 Connecticut River water
sampling program. Results from
weekly and biweekly water samplings will be published online.
“When weather gets warm,
people head to our rivers to cool
off and have fun, and they want
to know if our rivers are clean,”
said CRWC Lower River
Steward Alicea Charamut. “The
data tells us that it is a good
idea to stay out of the water for
24-48 hours after a heavy rain
because bacteria levels could be
high. Heavy rain is often the
cause of high bacteria levels.
Bacteria can spike after a storm
due to combined sewer overflows and polluted stormwater
runoff from urban, suburban,
and agricultural areas.”
Water samples are tested for
E. coli bacteria as an indicator
for all types of other pathogens
that could lead to illness in boaters and swimmers. River users
can visit the “Is It Clean” web
page at www.ConnecticutRiver.

at more than 147 river

Connecticut. Test results are

Water sample results are

whether the water is clean

The cast of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to be performed this month at
the Red Door Theatre gather around the first collected edition of William
Shakespeare’s plays, collated and published in 1623, seven years after his
death. Pictured with the cast is director Lyle Pearsons, far right.
Shakespeare cast visits rare book
AMHERST — The cast of
the Red Door Theatre’s production of “A Midsummer
Night’s Dream” took a trip
recently to view Shakespeare’s
First Folio, a collection of
the Bard’s plays on tour
from Folger’s Library in
Washington, D.C.
The 400-year-old book was
compiled in 1623 by two of
Shakespeare’s actor friends.
It was recently on loan to
the Mead Art Museum at
Amherst College. The field
trip was organized by director Lyle Pearsons as part of
a team-building exercise for
the cast, who will present an
abridged 90-minute version
of the popular comedy. It will
be presented outside on the
hill by the theater at 152 S.
Westfield St., Feeding Hills.
The performances are free
and run Friday and Saturday,
June 24 and 25, at 6 p.m., and
Sunday, June 26, at 2 p.m.
The audience is encouraged
to bring blankets, lawn chairs
and a picnic to enjoy during
the show.
The show is not recommended for small children
and the playground will be off
limits to allow the audience
to enjoy the show. In case of
rain, the show will be performed inside the theater for
the first 110 people to arrive.

SOUTHWICK – The
Ranch Golf Club will be the
setting for the Springfield
Regional Chamber’s 2016 Golf
Tournament on July 28.
Built in 2001 on a former
country retreat of the Crane
Paper Co. in Southwick, the
Damien Pascuzzo-designed
course has been called a “modern classic” by Links Magazine.
The “cerebral, sporty, tournament-worthy course” meanders through a mixture of open
meadows and woodlands, interspersed with beautiful water
features making the course
memorable and challenging.
The par-2, 7,100-yard course
is a challenge to any golfer with
“blurred distinctions” between
the fairways and greens fronts,
a “ragged and blow-out style on
the far edge, smoothly finished
on the near edge,” and diverse
bunkers throughout the course.
It has been consistently ranked
as one of the Top 5 Places to
Play by Golf Magazine and
listed in the Top 10 Best in the
State by Golf Digest since its
opening in 2002.
The tournament will kick off
with registration and practice on
one of its six target greens, two
pitching greens or its pitching
nets at 11 a.m. The tournament
is sponsored by fore sponsor
VHB and birdie sponsors Bacon
& Wilson, PC, Barr & Barr Inc.,

Angels outlast Athletics in slugfest; teams now tied for 1st in Valley Wheel standings
Timely hitting and some good
run support for their starting
pitching led the Angels to an 118 victory over the Athletics and
put the Angels in a first place tie
with their opponents.
The Angels jumped out to
a 7-0 lead before the Athletics
were able to get on the board,
backing a great effort by Gary
Perreault, who scattered several
baserunners over those first few
innings. He even worked out of
a bases loaded jam in the second
inning, not allowing a run.
The Athletics started scoring in the fourth inning, using
a triple and a sac fly to plate
a run. They got to Perreault
for two more runs in the fifth,
and another in the sixth before
Perreault left the game for Chris
Abel, who pitched the next 2
2/3 innings, allowing three runs
before settling down and pitching a scoreless seventh inning
and allowing just a run in the
eight to keep the game at arm’s
length.
With a narrow 9-7 lead, Greg
Scibelli led off the top of the seventh inning with an infield hit. A
liner to second by Perreault was
caught, then thrown away try-
ing to double Scibelli off first,
and Scibelli moved to third on
the overthrow. He then scored
the 10th Angels run on a wild
pitch.
Josh Smith got another
important insurance run in the
eighth inning when he singled
to start the inning, and eventually scored when Dean Martilli
was hit by a pitch with the bases
loaded, making it 11-7 heading
to the bottom of the eighth.
Abel pitched through the
eight, allowing a run on two
hits to make it 11-8. Josh Catter
would finish with a scoreless
ninth inning to get the save.
For the Angels, Mike
Barotlotta had a single and a
double. Matt Smith also had
two hits, and Scibelli was also
2-for-4. Mike Dean was on base
three times with a hit and two
walks. Tom Cygan had a single
and a double and drove in a key
run in a four-run fourth inning.
Catter was 2-for-4
The Athletics got two hits
from Dan Oleksak and Don
Pellerin. Five others had one
hit each.
Tigers 19, O’s 4
The Tigers beat the Orioles
19-4 at Dulchinos Field in eight
innings. Taylor Blankenburg
started the game and went five
innings allowing only two hits
and one unearned run. The
Tigers got the scoring started
early with a Jose Pena two out,
two run single in the first inning.
The Tigers scored two more in
the third inning and two in the
fourth highlighted by back to
back RBI singles by Jose Pena
and Rob Jacques Jr. The Tigers

Granville, Southwick students get Boland awards
The 2016 Edward P. Boland
Scholarships were recently
awarded to 18 college-bound
students in the former 2nd
Congressional District, the
seat in Congress once held by
Boland, at the scholarship’s
annual breakfast at the Boland
School in Springfield.
Among this year’s scholarship recipients are Dylan
Parrow and Kenneth Stratton
from Southwick, and William
Armstrong from Granville.
The annual awards are
granted up to $2,500 and are
intended for undergraduate students based on financial need,
academic merit and extracurricular activities. Applicants are
required to be a resident of the
Massachusetts 1st Congressional
District (which was called the
2nd District during Boland’s
tenure) at the time of application and a graduating senior of
a high school or other secondary school, or an undergraduate
student already in college.
The Edward P. Boland
Mary Boland, center, the widow of the late U.S. Rep. Edward Boland, is shown with the recipients of this year’s Boland scholarships.
Scholarship Fund is named
for the late congressman, who
established it upon his retire-
ment in 1988 from the United
States Congress after serving
Western Massachusetts for
more than 50 years. The fund
has awarded scholarships each
year since 1990 and has dis-
tributed more than $600,000 to
more than 400 students from
the area.

sented the committee with a list of students from kindergarten through 10th grade that reside in Southwick, but
are playing hockey at some level.
He contended the school could field a large enough
roster to have its own hockey team this year. He said the
parents are committed to building the program so it can
eventually compete in varsity Division 3A, where many
of the region’s smaller programs play.
“We have a feeder program in Westfield that
Southwick kids are playing in that will help us,” said
Athletic Director Frank Montagna, who supported
starting the program. “We also have the ability to get
more kids in our school if the program is successful.”
Barry said he agreed it was very possible that the
school district will now retain the sorts of students that
usually transfer to schools like Westfield or Agawam to
play hockey.
The parent group behind the program is willing to
pay the bulk of the cost of a JV schedule. Jubb received
an estimate of $14,300 for ice time for practices and JV
games at Amelia Park Arena in Westfield.
Barry said the committee was convinced trying out
the program was worthwhile, and there is only a oneyear commitment, so it will come up for a vote again
next year.
Southwick did not have ice hockey available to athletes until three years ago, when the school entered into
a co-operative program with West Springfield High
School. West Springfield’s numbers were declining at the
time, so the Terriers were willing to accept Southwick
players to fill out their roster. West Springfield’s numbers have since rebounded and the school discontinued
the co-op this year, though Southwick players who were
already on the team were grandfathered in.
Southwick will join St. Mary’s Parish School and
Westfield High School in practicing and playing home
games at Amelia Park.

Obituary Policy
Turley Publications offers two types of
obituaries.
One is a free, brief Death Notice listing
the name of deceased, date of death and funeral
date and place.
The other is a Paid Obituary, costing $75,
which allows families to publish extended death
notice information of their own choice and may
include a photograph. Death Notices & Paid
Obituaries should be submitted through a
funeral home to: [email protected]
Exceptions will be made only when the family
provides a death certificate and must be pre-paid.

shed would be in an existing field, with the disc golf
course itself in the woods behind, which will be largely
untouched.
“It’s not like regular golf — it’s played through the
woods,” said Brown. “The trees are like the sand traps.
You try not to hit a tree, you have to go around a tree.”
She said she’s already laid out five of the 18 holes,
clearing brush from the tee box and basket areas. If the
course is ever removed or modified, she said, the tee and
basket hardware could simply be removed and “you
wouldn’t even know they were there, a year later.”
Her initial plan is to set up an 18-hole course with
three different tee boxes per hole — beginner, intermediate and expert. Eventually, she’d like to add an additional course with nine shorter fairways, geared toward
children.
Additionally, though initial plans call for portable toilets and a simple shed by the parking lot for an attendant
to rent discs to players, the long-term plan is to build a
larger pro shop with indoor restrooms.
Brown said similar disc golf courses in other towns
draw 50-70 people per weekend. Playing the 18-hole
course would likely cost $10 per adult, with a discounted rate for children, disc golf proponents said at an April
meeting of the Planning Board.
