Seniors learn
to file their life
By Aimee M. Henderson
ahenderson@turley.com
BELCHERTOWN – Senior citizens learned recently that keeping a small File of Life in their
home with their medical history
and current medications can help
aid in the efficiency of care if an
emergency were to happen.
During a special presentation at the senior center, programs and volunteer coordinator Susan Shea-Bressette talked
with seniors about the File of
Life program, which is offered
through TRIAD. The File of Life
is actually a small file in which
pertinent medical information is
stored. The file is placed inside
a magnetic folder and is recommended to be placed on the person’s refrigerator. When medical personnel or police arrive at
the home for an emergency they
often will look to see if there is a
File of Life.
Belchertown Fire Capt. Craig
Bodamer said the files are very
helpful during medical emergencies because whether the person
is conscious or unconscious, the
medications are listed as well as
Buddies dish up variety
during show
BELCHERTOWN – The
Belchertown High School
Buddies brought down the
house on Friday night during
the review of the annual variety show, dishing up a mix of
singing, dancing and musical
talents.
Prior to the show, this
reporter sat down with
Buddies President and
senior Allison Laughner
to talk about her involvement with Buddies and
the steps it takes to put the
show together.
How long have you
been involved with
Buddies?
Laughner said she
joined the Buddies
club her freshman year,
but it was last year when she

Some comic relief is provided between

BELCHERTOWN – The cost
of keeping the Family Center
open should be shared equally
by the general municipal and
school budgets under a proposal
by the Board of Selectmen to the
School Committee.
The proposal was made by
Selectmen Chair Brenda Aldrich
at the school board meeting on
Jan. 13 during a presentation
by Family Center Director Lori
Allen.
The school committee provided Allen warm support for her
work at the center, located at the
former Franklin Street School,
which was nearly closed last
year after it received no funding
in the current year’s town budget. Its $4,700 in fuel and utility
bills are currently funded by private donations and fundraisers.
A grant through the center for
Educational Services provides a
stipend for Allen. Town Meeting
in December agreed to install a

the state,” she said.
She described the move as a
return to her beginnings in education 30 years ago as one of the
first special education teachers
in Springfield. From that job,
she then became a supervisor of
special education in Springfield.
After that, she was director of
pupil services, a special education position, in Northampton
for 11 years before becoming
superintendent there. She served
for 6½ years in that post before
coming to Granby.
She announced her resignation at the School Committee
meeting on Jan. 12. Connecticut
officials had interviewed her and
offered her a job that same day.
She said she wished she could

BELCHERTOWN – Last Sunday
and Monday, the Clapp Memorial
Library opened its doors to
Belchertown High School students
to aid in their preparation for midterm or final examinations.
Yo u t h L i b r a r i a n J e n n i f e r
Whitehead monitored the study
sessions, including one held on
Sunday afternoon in advance of
the New England Patriots AFC
Championship game.
“We have been holding these
study sessions before mid-terms
for the past three years,” said
Whitehead. “They have been pretty
successful and help a lot of students
get some good studying in before
their exams start.”
With a full weekend and the
holiday on Martin Luther King,
Jr. day, there is no access to the
Belchertown High School library
or resources for students to get help
studying for exams.
“It does not take much for us
to open up the library and make
it available to the students,” said
Whitehead. “It is something our
director (Sheila McCormick) wanted to do when she took over the
library.”
The library is not normally open
on Sunday, but Whitehead and a
couple of tutors were available
to help out. During the past three
years, the library has connected
with some tutors, older students,
and professors from nearby UMassAmherst, all who volunteer to
spend time with the students help-
Cam Wright, 16, a sophomore, tutors Stephanie Thrasher,
15, left, and Ryan French, 14, right, in Spanish.
ing them prepare.
Whitehead said the program
has gotten great support from the
high school, including Principal
Christine Vineaux, who sent out
information about study sessions
with her announcements about the
mid-term exam schedule.
Students who seek specific tutoring, made appointments with the
tutors. Whitehead asked those students to come prepared with specific questions or with a particular
goal.
“Obviously they can’t teach
them an entire semester’s worth of
information in one session, but they
can help them prepare and focus
on things they are having trouble
with,” said Whitehead.
Erika Hamilton, a resident of
Belchertown and a microbiology
professor at UMass, spent part of
her Sunday ready to help high
school students.
“I think it is a great idea and
something students should take
advantage of,” said Hamilton. “For
some of these students, I think it
can be helpful to learn something
from someone else who maybe
presents it in a different way.”
While some come to receive help
from tutors, others just bring their
books and notes to the library and
have a quiet place to study.
Emily Hamparian, 15, a freshmen at Belchertown High, brought
her Earth Science materials to the
library. She has been studying
earthquakes and plate tectonics.

BELCHERTOWN – The Tri-Lakes
Watershed Association is gearing up for
its 20th annual Ice Fishing Derby this
Sunday, and is expecting to draw another
large crowd to Lake Metacomet where
one trout will be tagged at $2,000.
Sean Gallagher, president of the association, said this year’s derby appears to
be a go-ahead, with the ice on the lake
a needed eight inches thick. Last year
the derby was cancelled following a brief
January thaw. It was never rescheduled.
In case of another thaw, new this year is a
“no-ice” date for Sunday, Feb. 8.
“The lake is looking good and we are
optimistic it will be on schedule,” said
Gallagher, who added that the association will be out on Saturday dropping the
tagged trout into the lake. One trout will
have a hefty $2,000 prize, while five others will be tagged at $100 each. There will
be 21 other cash prizes however amounting to over $800.
First, second and third place prizes for
size will be awarded for salmon, bass,
pickerel and trout. First and second prizes for size will be awarded for yellow
perch, white perch and calico bass. Prizes
will also be awarded for biggest bullhead
and punkin seed, and first fish to register.
The club trophy will also be handed out.
Gallagher said there will also be raffles
throughout the day, including a power
auger. Hamburgers and hot dogs will also
be for sale.
Gallagher said registration is still open,
and is on a first-come, first-served basis
until the association reaches 400. Preregistration is $15 and registration the day
of the event (if available) is $20. The first
50 children (ages 6-13) registered with an
adult are guarenteed a trophy. Their registration is $12.
Gallagher is expecting a large turnout this year and is certain people will be
camping out the night before to claim their
stake on the ice. He said others will likely
arrive by 4 a.m., however drilling is not
permitted until after 5:30 a.m. as a courtesy
for those who live on the lake. Fish check
in will be from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Entry is at the boat ramp on Bay Road
and Poole Road in Belchertown.
Tri-Lakes Watershed Association has
announced the following Ice Fishing
Derby rules:
All state laws apply; officials’ decision
is final; only registered fishermen are eligible cash prizes; fish must be weighed
and measured before 2 p.m.; only live fish
are eligible’ no eels; remove trash from
the ice and take it home; no electronic
devices for fish finders can be used; no
open fires on the ice; no drilling before
5:30 a.m. and please use sani-cans.
All people using all-terrain vehicles
and snowmobiles - at their own risk on
the lake - must wear helmets and observe
safety rules and Massachusetts state laws.
To register for the derby contact Jessica
Gallagher at 413-336-4998.

Opinion
Editorial
Play it safe on the ice
W
ith the annual fishing derby this weekend, we
want to remind those who will be out on the
ice to play it safe. We don’t want to alarm anyone who plans to participate, but even with the go-ahead
from a safety point, having the recommended eight
inches of ice – it’s good to be reminded what to do in
case you do fall through. But first, always check the ice
carefully before venturing out. In general, a clear layer
of ice four inches thick is safe for foot traffic, but there
are no guarantees. If you plan on bringing heavier equipment out, thicker ice is needed. (See chart below).
Always consider ice to be potentially dangerous.
Assess ice safety by using an ice chisel to chop a hole in
the ice to determine its thickness and condition. Continue
to test the ice as you go further out onto the pond or
lake, since ice thickness is seldom uniform. The thickness of ice on ponds and lakes depends on water currents
and/or springs, depth, and the presence of natural objects
like tree stumps or rocks. Daily changes in temperature
cause the ice to expand and contract, which affects its
strength. Don’t venture on to ice-bound rivers or streams
because the currents make ice thickness unpredictable.
What if you fall through the ice?
As with any emergency, don’t panic! Briefly call for
help. It doesn’t take long for the cold water to start slowing your physical and mental functions, so you must
act quickly. Air will remain trapped in your clothes for
a short time, aiding in buoyancy. Kick your legs while
grasping for firm ice. Try to pull your body up using
ice pins or picks that should be hanging around your
neck. Once your torso is on firm ice, roll towards thicker
ice – the direction from which you previously walked.
Rolling will distribute your weight better than walking.
After you reach safe ice, you need to warm up quickly
to prevent hypothermia. Go to the nearest fishing shanty,
warm car, or house. Don’t drive home in wet clothes.
If a companion falls through the ice remember the
phrase “Reach-Throw-Go.” If you are unable to reach
your friend, throw a rope, jumper cables, tree branch,
or other object. If this does not work, go for help; do
not risk becoming a victim yourself. Pet owners should
keep pets on a leash. If a pet falls through the ice, do
not attempt to rescue the pet; go for help. Well-meaning
pet owners can easily fall through the ice when trying to
save their pets.
Additional ice safety information is available on
the MassWildlife website and from the Massachusetts
Emergency Management Agency.

Thank you for supporting
Family Center
To the Editor:
We would like to thank everyone who has supported the
Belchertown Family Center recently. The center is committed to providing the community with early childhood
enrichment in a safe environment that allows children to
develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically
through learning activities and play. This year the center is
able to remain open by creating a budget based solely on
fundraising and birthday party rentals.
We have had two successful fundraisers so far, including
a mini photo session done by Myndi B. She graciously
donated her time and braved the cold for us! Director,
Lori Allen, also organized a fun filled Harvest Festival for
the whole family to enjoy. We would also like to thank the selectmen for recognizing the Belchertown Family Center as a valuable resource
that benefits the entire community, and for voting to allow
it to remain open indefinitely. If you have not been to the Family Center, come check
it out! The center is open Tuesday through Friday from
9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. You can check out our Facebook page
at www.facebook.com/belchertownfamilycenter for more
information, including birthday party rentals. Again, a big thank you to everyone in the community
who has helped support the Belchertown Family Center. Look for information regarding our next fundraiser in the
spring!

The Hampshire Council of Governments (HCOG) is
owned by the people of Belchertown, Granby, and the
other 13 member towns.
Our Hampshire Power unit is serving 70,000 residential and business customers, right now, in sixteen towns
and cities. With National Grid having doubled its rates
this winter, Hampshire Power is saving these customers
$13,000,000 over six months. Yes, that is 70 thousand customers and 13 million dollars. The arithmetic works out to
an average savings of $185 per customer.
But there is much more to this story than just numbers.
All of us who work at HCOG serve as a “call center” for
these thousands of customers. Last Monday, I picked up
the phone from these two customers:
* A man phoned on behalf of his elderly mother. She
is disabled and on oxygen. Her income is limited and her
electric bill is enormous, mostly because of her special
needs. Though her savings are much more than the average, her needs are even greater. We discussed various discount programs.
* A young mom phoned. She lives in a small apartment with her new baby. She seems to be at wit’s end on
her utility costs. We discussed possible free conservation
options and low-income discounts that could reduce her
costs further.
In our Hampshire Power program, we are saving people
hundreds of dollars. Their needs are very real. We need
to expand these programs to more towns. And we need
to find better ways to help people with even greater
needs.
Those of us who are elected and appointed officials
must never forget: there are real people out there who
depend on our decisions. It is sad when lawyers and
politicians in Boston have their own agendas and are
blind to the impact of their decisions and non-decisions.

ACCIDENTS | from Page 1
Hopkinton, who was transported to Baystate Medical
Center by ambulance for serious injuries.
Guarino said the accident is still under investigation, but
it appears the icy conditions were a factor. He said, most
likely speed was also a factor, and though Villar may not
have been going above the speed limit, in icy conditions
operators need to travel much slower. No citations were
issued at the time of the accident.
Most of the accidents reported were single-vehicle
crashes, in which the vehicle left the roadway and struck
a tree or pole. There were some multi-vehicle accidents,
including a three-car crash on Amherst Road. Other accidents reported were on Pine Street, North Liberty Street in
which a car hit a pole, several on Amherst Road, a two-car
accident on Oakridge Street, one on Bay Road in which a
car struck a tree, Warren Wright Road as well as others.
Sgt. Jenks said all accidents appear to have been caused
by the extremely icy conditions. He said, though the
department of public works was out sanding and salting
the roads, the heavy rain was just washing it off the roadways. His advice to motorists when such conditions exist
is, “stay off the roads or use extreme caution if you do
have to go out.”
CENTER | from Page 1
new fire alarm system and tune up the building’s heating
system.
“We will be asking the School Department to split the
cost half and half. Maybe that will make it more acceptable to the town,” Aldrich said.
The center serves the town’s preschool children and
their families. It provides exercises in fine and gross motor
functions, toilet training, pre-reading and socialization,
screening and referrals, among other things, on Tuesday
through Friday mornings.
Allen said she has talked to the staff at Cold Spring
School where the town’s kindergarten classes are located
to determine what skills children should have before arriving there for the first time.
Allen said she has visited local apartment complexes,
and “knocked on doors” and has met residents there that
have small children, and who are unaware the center exists.
She counted 22 mothers with children on her visits.
She found that some of those families do not own cars,
and cannot participate in programs because the center is
located away from the town’s center in the southern corner of town. A more central location, such as the Tadgell
school, which currently hosts the schools’ information
technology department, would make the center more
accessible.
“We are missing out on a lot of people,” she said.
In other business, the committee formed a Business and
Technology subcommittee that would work the schools’
business management to devise budget proposals in
advance of the annual Town Meeting, and monitor expenses as the year proceeds.
School Superintendent Karol Coffin said the subcommittee will be “extremely beneficial” in helping the committee
in “keeping current with the budget during the school year,
so there are no surprises along the way.”
School board members Dawn French and Michael
Knapp agreed to serve on that subcommittee.

well as creating business for a local restaurant,” says Tom
Stockton, president of the Historical Association. “This

positive event for the whole community.” The cost remains the same as the last two years, $35

tory of ignoring the laws and regulations. For example, in
the past, 1066 Federal Street had several buried fuel tanks
in the aquifer which were either unregistered, had no permit, or lacked an updated license (statements from former
Fire Chief Donald Bock and Town Clerk G. Bach 1983).
Former Fire Chief Samual Joyal stated that there was overwhelming evidence indicating serious problems and environmental impacts at 1066 Federal Street (1991).
Bringing the 1066 Federal Street activities up to date:
1) It is Surner Heating’s responsibility to contact the Natural
Heritage and Massachusetts Endangered Species Act
Agencies because the property has been categorized as priority and estimated endangered species habitat. He failed in
doing so. ( see http://www.mapsonline.net/belchertownma/.)
2) The Zoning Board and the Massachusetts DOT instructed
Surner not to use North Street as an exit for his propane
trucks. He has been using North Street to exit on to Route 9
with his propane trucks. 3) The propane storage permit has
not been finalized yet. He is now storing propane tanks in
the garage next to the apartment building which has never
been mentioned in the application or past permits.
This is a propane facility which requires strict regulations
and expertise in the management of the facility for good
reason. The facility has the potential to be devastating to the
whole town. Therefore regulations and instructions should
not be ignored. However, some things never change.

PAGE Conn. River watershed gets $10M grant
The Connecticut River Watershed
Council announced last week that it is
one of seven partners receiving a $10
million federal grant funded through
U.S. Department of Agriculture’s
Regional Conservation Partnership
Program. This project is intended to
improve the health of Long Island
Sound. As the funding must be
matched dollar-for-dollar by other
local, state and private sources, the
grant will help support at least $20
million in watershed improvements.
“The council is very pleased to
be one of the many partners on this
important project to improve the
health of both the Connecticut River
basin and Long Island Sound,” said
CRWC Executive Director Andrew
Fisk. “Funding will allow CRWC
to continue working with landowners on restoration projects on their
land that will improve our rivers and
protect their investment in productive
farm and forest land.”
Fisk said this week that his group,
along with local conservation districts
and other partners in the four states
that border the river, will work with
landowners in the coming weeks to
identify specific projects to be funded.
He said this particular federal grant is
exceptional for the degree to which
local authorities are able to set priorities.
Owners of protected farm or forest
land who need help in implementing programs or landscaping that will
reduce river pollution should contact the Hampden and Hampshire
Conservation Districts in Hadley at
413-586-5440, ext. 117, or 413treesale@gmail.com; or the CRWC in
Greenfield at 413-772-2020, or
crwc@ctriver.org.
Excess nutrients have been identi-
fied as the primary driver of hypoxic
conditions (lack of oxygen) in Long
Island Sound and are also impacting upland water resources within
the watershed, which encompasses
areas of Connecticut, Massachusetts,
New Hampshire, New York, Rhode
Island and Vermont. This project will
develop a comprehensive, whole-farm
management certainty program for
farmers in the area and use both working lands and easement programs to
improve soil health and nutrient management, establish community resiliency areas with a focus on enhancing
riparian areas, and institute a land protection program to protect agricultural
and forestry areas.

the Connecticut officials wanted
someone to begin immediately as the
post had been vacant for longer than
they had wanted.
“I was in shock it happened so
quickly. It’s going to be a big step for
me,” said Rodriguez.
She said in her new job she will
miss having close contact with children and will always remember fondly the parents and families and the
“phenomenal” staff of “committed,
hard-working, loyal staff” here.
She was fond of visiting classrooms, sometimes around the holi-
days.
“Mrs. Claus told me how much fun
it was to go through the little kids’
classrooms,” she said. “It scares me
that I will miss that in the state level.
I have never been in a job that I’m
not working with children.”
Until her departure, she will be
taking on the work of devising a
budget for the next school year at a
time of lean state revenues support
– a task especially challenging for
Granby, a small community without
the clout of larger districts.
She said Granby residents must
consider making more of a local contribution to the schools if possible.

Seniors
Belchertown
Senior Center
NOTE:
Weather delay and closing update
Canceling school or even delaying
school for two hours for snowstorms or
icy road conditions are sometimes marginal decisions. But remember that the
Senior Center’s goal is safety. Their policy is to follow the Belchertown Public
Schools decision on weather related
closings. When the schools are closed or
there is a delayed opening, the senior center will follow the same schedule. So if
the schools are delayed two hours, the
center will open at 10 a.m. The transportation will also follow the two-hour delay,
but the meals on wheels will be delivered
on schedule. When in effect, school cancellation,
delay, and early release notifications may
be found on via the radio and the following television stations: WWLP22, WGGB/
ABC40 and WSHM/CBS3.

next of kin. He said it’s often hard for people to remember all the medications they
are on, especially during an emergency.
Bodamer said, while the department will
be able to pull up past history if they’ve
responded to a call previously, medications are constantly changing – especially
for seniors. He said it’s important for
ambulance personnel to have upto-date information because
they can relay it to the
emergency room

Seeing as the File
of Life is updated
often, using a pencil to
fill it out is highly recommended. Shea-Bressette,
during the presentation,
pointed that out, as well
as helped senior citizens
understand the information
that was requested in the
file. She told them not to fill
i t
out with guesses, but to make sure they
took their time getting it right.
Belchertown Police and TRIAD Officer
Jason Christofori said the File of Life is
offered through TRIAD with assistance
from the Northwestern District Attorney’s
Office, and has been in Belchertown for
many years.
“The files can be very helpful during
medical emergencies because it allows
emergency responders to gain a bet-

ter understanding of their patient in a
short period of time,” said Christofori.
“Recipients are encouraged to provide a
complete write-up detailing their medical
history and any current illnesses, allergens
to medications, and a complete list of medications including recommend dosages. It is
also helpful to provide the names of physicians handling care and the names and contact information for family members.”
Shea-Bressette said TRIAD used
money raised through the Health and
Safety Fair to purchase
1,000 files of life. She
said anyone in town,
not just seniors, is
welcome to the files.
Though, they are
most useful for
people who are on
a lot of medications or have a
medical history.
“Our goal
is to get these
into the hands of
anyone who may need them,”
said Shea-Bressette.
Also during the presentation senior citizens were given an emergency bag containing some toiletries and a notebook.
Shea-Bressette told them to add a change
of clothes, maybe some slippers, or anything else they would want if they had to
go to the hospital. This way, they would
have personal items with them for the stay.
The notebook, she recommended, was for
phone numbers of people they may want to
get in touch with if they are brought to the
hospital. Shea-Bressette told the seniors to
keep the bag by their door so emergency
personnel can easily grab it on the way out
the door.
“You might not need anything in the bag,
but at least it’s in there,” she said. SheaBressette also told seniors to place a File
of Life sticker on the door that emergency
personnel would likely be entering through,
that way they know to look for the file on
the refrigerator.
Christofori said TRIAD is a communitypolicing program that was implemented in
the late 80’s. TRIAD’s founders included members with the National Sheriff’s
Association (NSA), the International
Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and
participants from the American Association
of Retired Persons (AARP).
“The purpose of TRIAD was to provide
public service outreach to elderly community members,” he said.
Christofori said TRIAD continues to
evolve and has built great partnerships with
both public services and private organizations. Some examples of successful programs have been the Health & Safety Fair
and Drug Take-Back program.
The TRIAD committee in Belchertown is
very active and its members include participants from the police and fire departments,
the sheriff’s department, the Northwestern
District Attorney’s Office and volunteers
and employees with the Senior Center.
Though, according to Shea-Bressette, the
committee is always looking for more people to join.

Whittling down a screwdriver and
using some cut glass to sand down a
piece of discarded cedar wood at his
parents’ home, Braithwaite created
his first work, a mask. Braithwaite
recalls, “It was like the wood was

for the challenge, it’s Laughner, who
clearly loves what the club stands for.
Laughner said Buddies allows everyone of every ability to be part of a club
and different activities. She said the
club does a number of events throughout the year, including fundraising help
like assisting the Humanities Club with
the haunted hallways. Buddies also
hosts a Halloween party, holiday party
and end-of-the-year party. The variety

Laughner’s attention to join Buddies, it
was also a “who.”
“I met Becca (LaFleche) and I saw
how much fun everyone had,” said
Laughner. “I had gone to one of the
variety shows too, and that really made
me want to be part of it.”
LaFleche, who is a senior herself,
said she has a lot of friends in the
Buddies club. She said all the activities
are fun. Her favorite part of the variety
show has been the practices with her
friends. She performed in a singing
duet to “Try” by Colbie Caillat, danced
to “Thriller” and participated in the

“Camp Sunshine was where the past

This year, said Laughner, the group
decided to give the proceeds to a local
organization. After coming up with
a list, the group narrowed it down
through a vote, which landed Shriners’
Hospital at the top.
“We just really wanted to do something more local (with the money),”
said Laughner about changing the

What’s next for the Buddies?
Though Laughner’s mind was clearly focused on making it through that
night’s variety show, she did say others
have already asked about the remainder
of the year.
“The only thing in my head right
now is the show,” said Laughner. “But,
we are thinking about writing letters to
the kids in Shriners, so they know we
were thinking of them.”
Other ideas for the club have been
more bonding activities and crafts.
As for Laughner, when she graduates this year she is hoping to continue
her education and eventually get into
family law.
“I definitely want to be a part of a
club like this in college,” she added.
Allison Laughner, Buddies president, Ruth

Lady Ram trio dominates Hampshire

Sports Correspondent
SPRINGFIELD - For the second year in a row, the members of
the Granby girls basketball team
were able to celebrate a victory at
the Spalding Hoophall Classic.
The trio of sophomore guard
Kate Sullivan, sophomore forward
Kate Sarnacki, and senior forward
Meghan Sullivan combined to
score 44 points leading the Lady
Rams to a 54-48 victory against
Central Division rival Hampshire
Regional at Blake Arena, which is
located on the Springfield College
campus, last Friday afternoon.
“My players were very excited about playing in this game
today,” said Granby head coach
Tom Burke. “Playing here is just
like playing a game at the (Curry
Hicks) Cage. It’s as good as it
gets.”
The Lady Rams, who improved
their overall season record to
a perfect 10-0, qualified for
the Western Mass. Division 3
Tournament. They also took over
sole possession of first place in
the league standings with a 2-0
mark.

game between Ludlow and
Belchertown featured two
of the best players in Western
Massachusetts.
Ludlow senior forward Alyssa
Guyon and Belchertown senior
guard Tea’ Spellacy, who have
both scored more than 1,000
points during their outstanding
high school careers, gave their
faithful supporters plenty to
cheer about on the cold winter
night.
While Guyon scored a careerhigh 39 points, Spellacy finished
the contest with 31 points, which
was also her career-high, helping the Lady Orioles post a 6354 home victory, last Tuesday
night, Jan. 13.
“It was a pretty good matchup
between me and Alyssa Guyon
tonight, but we were able to
come away with the victory,”
said Spellacy, who scored her
1,000th career point earlier this
season. “Winning the game is
the most important thing to me
because we’re now one step
closer to qualifying for the postseason tournament.”
The nine-point victory
improved the Lady Orioles overall record to 7-2.
“I told my players before the
start of the game that Alyssa
might outscore Tea’, but Ludlow

LUDLOW - At the midway
point of the regular season, the
Granby and Ludlow boys basketball teams had similar records.
Both teams were looking for a
victory when they faced each
other last Friday night.
The Rams, who outscored the
Lions 19-6 in the third quarter,
held on during the final 8:00 for a
48-43 non-league game at Mullins
Gymnasium in Ludlow.
“We’ve been struggling a little
bit so far this season, so this is
a very good win,” said Granby
head coach Tim Sheehan. “To get
a little bit of momentum and a
little bit of confidence is really
very helpful for us. I thought we
played very well tonight, espe-
cially defensively.”
The Rams, who began the regular season with a 1-3 record, have
now won four of their previous
five games putting them above
the .500 mark for the first time at
5-4. They defeated Southwick 7748 at home 24 hours earlier.
“We’ve played a lot of close
games this year,” Sheehan added.
“I think if we can continue to play
well, we should be a very good
team in February.”
The only double-digit scorer
for the Rams against the Lions
was senior guard Jesse Molin,
who scored 11 of his game-high
20 points during the second half.
He also finished the game with 11
rebounds and three assists.
Molin, who scored his 1,000th
career point as a junior, has
scored 20 or more points in seven

Hurricanes declaw Tigers

SOUTH HADLEY – The South
Hadley hockey team continues to
struggle this season, dropping to
0-6 with losses this week to East
Longmeadow and Amherst.
Last Thursday night, the Tigers
were upended by Amherst (which
shares co-operative program with
Palmer) 5-2.
Amherst, which is undefeated so
far this season at 6-0-3, got off to
a good start by taking a 1-0 lead in
the first period. With 4:45 remaining
in the period, Matt Gazaille took a
pass from Jordan Tetreault and sent
it home.
Tetreault then scored himself with
13:05 to go in the second period.
Max Hopley then increased the
Hurricane lead to 3-0 with 2:49 left
in the period.
There was a small melee in front of
the goal with a few shots going back
and forth at the goal. Jack Rees and
Caseem Knight both made attempts
at the goal. Off a rebound, Hopley
would make a quick backhand and
found a hole in the net for the goal.
South Hadley finally got on the
board with 41 seconds remaining in

the second period thanks to a heads
up play by Corey Calkins. Calkins,
Beau Kass and Brian Bak were all
heading for the goal. Kass took a
shot on the goal the rebound went to
Calkins, who flicked it into the left
side of the net to make it 3-1.
Knight scored with 6:18 in the
third period, but Evan Sullivan came
back with a goal thanks to an Alex
Joao pass with 4:38 remaining, making the score 4-2.
Tetreault grabbed his second tally
of the game with an empty net with
50 seconds remaining to ice the
game.

of the Rams first nine games.
The trio of junior guard Colby
Forbush, sophomore forward Zach
Gorham, and sophomore guard Joe
Desormier finished with eight points
for Granby. Gorham also had eight
rebounds.
The Lions, who saw their overall
record fall to 3-6, entered the contest
with a two-game winning streak.
“If we could’ve won this game
tonight, it would’ve put us only one
game under .500, but now we’re two
games under the .500 mark,” said
Ludlow head coach Dan Falvey,
“Granby won this game in the third
quarter. They put a lot of pressure
on us defensively and we kept rushing our shots. We just missed a ton
of inside shots. We did make a good
comeback in the fourth quarter, but
we just need to play that way the
whole game.”
Before the start of the season,
Falvey was hoping to have at least a
4-6 record after the first ten games.
“In my opinion, the first half of our
schedule is a lot more difficult than
the second half,” Falvey said. “My
goal was to be at least 4-6 after ten
games and we can accomplish that
if we can beat Agawam on Monday
night. Then we’ll need to go 6-4 in
our final 10 games to qualify for the
postseason tournament.”
In the home game against Granby,
Ludlow, who’s a Division 2 team, was
led by junior guard Dan Rodrigues,
who netted ten of his 12 points after
Granby’s Tim Sheehan Jr.
(5) tries to get off a shot in
the paint.
halftime. It was only the second time
this season that Rodrigues reached
double digits in scoring. Senior
guard Brian Pacheco chipped in with
10 points.
The Rams, who started only one
forward, managed to hold Ludlow
senior center Kevin Simonds, who’s
6-foot-6, to a season-low eight points.
He only made two field goals and
four free throws.
Granby scored the first seven
points of the game, but the Lions
responded with a 9-2 run and the
score was tied 9-9 at the end of the
opening quarter.
It looked like the home team
would enter the second quarter with
a three-point lead when senior Zach
Frangules (five points) launched a
half court shot that went into the basket off the backboard, but the buzzer
had already sounded.
With 3:17 remaining in the second quarter, the Lions took the lead
for the first time at 15-13 following
a jumper by junior Lee Gonzalez,
which was his only made basket of
the game.
A 3-pointer from the right side by
Forbush gave Granby the lead back
less than a minute later.
The Lions had a 19-16 lead before
Molin buried a 3-pointer from the
left corner tying the score for the
fourth time.
Rodrigues started the second half
with a 3-pointer from the left side
before the Rams pulled away with
the help of a 13-0 run. Molin scored
six points during that run, which was
capped off with an inside hoop by
Granby’s Jesse Molin (24)
drives hard to the basket.
senior forward Lucas Monaco (two
points) increasing the Rams lead to
32-22 with 3:20 left in the third quarter.
An old fashion three point play
by Rodrigues halted the run for a
moment, but the Rams entered the
final quarter with a 38-25 lead following back-to-back 3-pointers by
Desormier and Molin.
The Lions then outscored the
Rams, 13-2, during the first 5:00 of
the fourth quarter.
“We played back-to-back games
and we got a little bit tired in the
fourth quarter,” Sheehan said. “I
thought my players really stepped up
tonight.”
An old fashion three-point play by
Pacheco closed the gap to 40-38 with
2:54 left in regulation.
On the Rams next possession,
Forbush made his second 3-pointer
of the game from the right side.
With 22 seconds left, Forbush
made a pair of free throws extending
the Rams lead to 46-40.
Frangules would then make a
three-pointer from the left corner cutting the deficit in half.
Gorham sealed the Rams victory
with an offensive rebound putback
basket following a missed free throw
with 6 seconds on the scoreboard

did a year ago, but they’ll be a very

Tournament again this year.
basketball team wants to play at each year.”
Granby made a visit to the Cage last March after defeating Hampshire, 45-39, in a quarterfinal game at Sullivan
Gymnasium. The Lady Rams lost to Hoosac Valley in the
Western Mass. semifinals.
The Lady Rams also defeated Sabis 43-35 at the
Hoophall last January. That victory ended a ten game losing streak against the Lady Bulldogs. Granby lost a heartbreaker against South Hadley by one point at Blake Arena
two years ago.
While Meg Sullivan, who played in her third and final
Hoophall Classic game, was selected as the Lady Rams
Most Outstanding Player in last year’s game, her younger
sister, Kate, received the Most Outstanding Player award
following the six point victory against Hampshire.
“It’s pretty special to receive the award, especially following in my sisters footsteps,” she said. “It’s the first time
that I’ve ever won an award in my high school career.”
Kate Sullivan, who also played in her third Hoophall
game, posted a double-double with 13 points and a teamhigh 15 rebounds. She also had five assists, two steals, and
two blocked shots.
Sarnacki, who now has a 2-0 record at the Hoophall, led
the Lady Rams with a game-high 17 points. She scored 13
of her points during the opening half.
Granby freshman forward Mallory Beauregard added six
points and five rebounds.
The Lady Red Raiders, who also had a chance to qualify
for the Western Mass. Division 3 Tournament with a victory, had a 9-2 overall record and a 2-1 league record following the Hoophall loss.
“We’re going to get in the tournament,” said Hampshire
head coach Rich Moussette. “Sure, it’s a big game, but you
can’t make it bigger than the season.”
Hampshire was led by sophomore forward Katie
O’Connor, who also posted a double-double. She scored
eight of her 14 points during the second half and pulled
down a game-high 27 rebounds. The Lady Red Raiders out
rebounded the Lady Rams 51-38.
“Getting the opportunity to play at the Hoophall was
just amazing,” said O’Connor, who was selected Lady Red
Raiders Most Outstanding Player. “I’ve never played a
game in a gym like this one before.”
Senior forward Lauren Aldrich and junior guard Chelsea
Moussette both finished the game with 12 points.
The score was tied five times during the first seven minutes before the Lady Rams put together an 11-3 run.
Sarnacki buried a three-pointer from the top of the key
with two seconds left in the quarter giving the Rams a slim
16-14 advantage. She finished the contest with a total of
three three-pointers giving her nine treys in the first ten
games of the season.
Granby junior center Hannah Remillard (2 points) began
the second quarter by hitting a foul-line jumper before
Kate Sullivan capped off the big run increasing the lead to
20-14 with 6:40 remaining in the half.
In the middle of the second quarter, Hampshire junior
guard Nicole Buzzee (8 points) knocked down a threepointer from the right corner closing the gap to 25-22.
The Lady Rams, who held a 31-26 halftime lead, took
an eight point lead at the start of the second half following a three-pointer from the right side of the key by Kate
Sullivan, who score eight first half points.
With 2:57 remaining in the quarter, the score was tied at
34 following a pair of made free throws by Moussette.
“I thought if we were able to take the lead there, it
would’ve probably made a big difference for us,”
Moussette said. “We were playing hard, but we were just
missing our shots.”
Following a steal by Kate Sullivan, the Lady Rams
retook the lead following a Sarnacki lay-up. Then Meg
Sullivan, who scored only four points in the first half,
made a pair of free throws.
Meg Sullivan would make a pair of three-pointers and
added two more free throws during the first four minutes
of the fourth quarter, as the Lady Rams built a 48-37 lead.
Beauregard also made two free throws capping the Lady
Rams 12-1 run.
Just like at the start of the second half, Hampshire came
storming back once again. Aldrich scored seven of her
team’s final 11 points of the game. Moussette made her
second three-pointer in the final seconds, but her team
couldn’t get any closer than six points.
The second meeting of the season between the two rivals
is scheduled to take place at Granby High School on Feb.

Free course for people with
loved ones with mental illness
The National Alliance on Mental Illness
of Western Massachusetts (NAMI-WM) is
offering a free 12-week course in Holyoke
starting Feb. 2 for family, caregivers, and
friends of loved ones with mental illness.
The course is designed to help caregivers
understand and support their loved ones
while maintaining their own wellbeing.
Pre-registration is required. Mental
illnesses covered in the course include
depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar
disorder, post traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD), borderline personality disorder,
and schizophrenia.
Family to Family is taught by trained
facilitators who are family members of
individuals living with mental illness.
Facilitators provide critical information and strategies related to caregiving
through presentations, discussions, and
interactive exercises. More than 115,000
family members have graduated from this
national program.
Participants are provided with free

games, also defeated Mahar, 68- 40, on
the road last Thursday night before losing
another road game against Westfield, 4843, the following night. The Lady Orioles,
who only needs two more victories to
qualify for the Western Mass. Division 2
Tournament, first three losses of the season came against Division 1 opponents.
The Lady Lions (4-4), who’s also a
Division 2 team, entered the game having
won four straight games.
“We’ve been playing with a lot of confidence during the past couple of games,”
said Ludlow head coach Tim Brillo.
“Hopefully, we can continue to keep
improving in our final two games this
week.”
The Lady Lions also split their other
two games last week. They defeated
Palmer, 52-39 at home, last Thursday
before losing at Northampton, 56-38, the
following night.
Spellacy, who’s planning to join the
women’s basketball team at Babson
College next year, will most likely end her
high school career, as the Lady Orioles alltime leading scorer. Her previous career
high, was 29 points, which came in a 5431 road victory against Palmer back in the
middle of December. She has scored 20 or
more points in eight of the Lady Orioles
first 11 games this season.
Belchertown senior forward Kelsey
Shea scored eight of her season-high 10
points during the second half. Her careerhigh is 11 points, which she has done a
couple of times during the past two years.
“Kelsey is a workhorse for us,”
Woodcock said. “Nobody on this team
works harder than she does.”
Junior forward Jackie Johnson scored
all eight of her points in the opening half.
Senior forward Ashley Cavanaugh also
scored eight points, while sophomore
guard Kayla Henry scored four points and
sophomore center Cara McKenzie added
two points.
Despite the setback, it was a very
memorable game for Guyon, who broke a
school and a team record.
Guyon, who joined the elite 1,000point club as a junior, became the school’s
all-time leading scorer following an old
fashion three-point play with 4 seconds
remaining in the third quarter. She passed
Jenna Williamson (1,241 points), who
graduated from Ludlow High School in
2010.
“I needed 25 points to break the
school’s scoring record and I thought
that I wouldn’t be able do it because
Belchertown is a very good team this
materials including up-to-date information
on mental illnesses and their impacts on
the brain, and current research on treatments and medications.
“Mental illness does not involve just
one person,” said NAMI-WM president
Bernice Drumheller. “Entire families are
affected, and caregivers need the skills
and information to obtain the best care for
their loved ones while also taking care of
themselves.”
Drumheller, a 13-year veteran Family to
Family teacher, said, “NAMI offers help
and hope to families. People who take the
course describe it as life-changing. It is
taught by trained family caregivers who
themselves have loved ones living with
mental illness. They know first-hand what
families face.”
For more information or to register for
the course please contact the NAMI-WM
office at 413-786-9139 or information@

year,” said Guyon, who was honored during a ceremony prior to the start of last
Thursday’s home game against Palmer. “If
I didn’t do it against Belchertown, I probably would’ve done it in our next game at
home. It’s an amazing accomplishment for
me, but I really wanted to win this game.”
Guyon, who’s also planning to play
college basketball next year, broke
Jenna Williamson’s team record for
points in a game against Belchertown.
Williamson scored 35 points in a game
against Chicopee High School as a senior.
Guyon’s previous career high was 32
points against rival Minnechaug last year.
Only three other Ludlow players besides
Guyon scored against Belchertown. Junior
guard Stacia Papuga scored all eight of
her points during the first half, junior forward Mia Jeronimo scored four points and
senior guard Kierra McCarthy added three
points.
After a very close first quarter between
the two team, which saw two ties and four
lead changes, the Lady Orioles used a 144 run to take a 26-18 lead with 1:55 left in
the opening half.
Following a lay-up by Papuga, the Lady
Orioles increased their lead to 30-20 with
23 seconds left following back-to-back
layups by Spellacy.
During the final 10 seconds of the half,
Guyon made a layup and a jumper from
the left side closing the gap to 30-24 at the
break. Guyon scored 16 points in the first
16:00.
The Lady Orioles, who put together an
impressive 15-2 during the first 5:00 of
the third quarter, had a 45-26 lead following an inside hoop by Cavanaugh.
Ludlow could’ve easily packed it in at
that point, but they came storming back
with the help of Guyon.
“I’m very proud of the way that my
players came back in the second half
against a very good Belchertown team,”
Brillo said. “We had three days off and we
played a little bit sluggish tonight.”
Between the final 3:00 of the third quarter and the first 3:00 of the fourth quarter,
Guyon scored 14 of her team’s 19 points.
The Lady Lions got as close as 49-45
with 5:05 left in regulation following
back-to-back field goals by Jeronimo.
The Lady Orioles, who also defeated
Ludlow by three points a year ago, would
score the next six points. Then a 3-pointer
from the left side by Spellacy gave her
team a 58-49 advantage with 2:35 left.
The Lady Lions wouldn’t get any closer
than six points the rest of the way.
The two teams could possibly meet for
the second time during the postseason
tournament.
