Congratulations to Ridgefield's own luge hero, Tucker West who has just qualified for the 2018 Olympic Team in Luge. West won the bronze in today’s World Cup competition!

West competed in the Olympic Winter Games in 2014 and received notoriety as the youngest man in history to represent the United States in luge. 

According to TeamUSA, 22-year-old West will return to the Games along with two-time Olympian Chris Mazdzer and Taylor Morris, who were named to the team today due to their stellar finishes this season.

The trio will now officially begin the pursuit of winning Team USA’s first individual men’s medal in the sport.

Family friend and fellow Olympian from Ridgefield, Leslie Krichko, said, "I wanted to be there today...I was supposed to be there... but I couldn't be so I followed every bit of it [his performance] and was in contact with Brett [Tucker's father] all day." 

Krichko said that West set a new course record today in his first run. "After the second run he held on to the bronze and qualified in the top spot for the US," said Krichko. 

"I'm so thrilled for our town - he is such a positive role model," said Krichko, who added, "Who cares if it snows all winter! Now we can watch Tucker!"

Dolores Katz was born in Hollis, NY on November 21, 1924, to Alois and Julia Pracny. She and her sister Anne who was seven years older remained very close throughout their lives. Dolores was valedictorian at her high school and received numerous scholarships to college. She attended Manhattanville College in New York City, graduating in 1946 with a degree in mathematics and physics. In August of 1946, she married Robert Dvorak, also of Queens, NY.

The Dvorak family lived in Sayville, NY, a longtime home of her husband’s family. She had a son, Robert in 1950 and a third child, Charles in 1953. Answering the need for teachers of the growing baby boomer population, she went to Adelphi College for teaching certification, and began teaching 5th grade in East Islip, Long Island for many years. After her husband’s death in 1969, she added further academic qualifications as an administrator, then went to SUNY Stony Brook for a master’s degree in liberal studies. 
 
In 1973 while pursuing her interest in painting, she met and married Mr. Moses Katz. She continued work as an academic administrator, working in Roslyn, New York. She also taught at Dowling College, Long Island.
 
When Dee and Moses retired in 1979, they moved to Ridgefield, CT and becoming fixtures in the Ridgefield art and classical music scene. Dee’s interests included the Ridgefield Guild of Artists as well as teaching watercolor with the Ridgefield Adult Education program for 15 years. She held an active membership in the American Association of University Women and, pursued a lifelong interest in reading, working on the board of the Friends of Ridgefield Library. In addition, she enjoyed her friendships in the Ridgefield Great Discussions Group and monthly Cooking Group.
 
She is survived by her daughter, Anne, married to James Palumbo of Latrobe, Pennsylvania. They have three children, James, Jr., Dr. Jessica Peretin, and Valerie Palumbo. In addition, she has two great-grandchildren, Alex and Anna from her granddaughter Jessica and her husband Brian Peretin. She is also survived by her eldest son Robert, married to Bernadette Doty and residents of Saugerties, NY. She is also survived by their one daughter, Julia of Mansfield, MA, married to Ryan Johnson who has presented a great-grandson, Theodore. And finally, she is survived by her youngest son and caretaker, Charles Dvorak of Milford, CT.
 
Most of her friends and family remember her as a superb artist and watercolorist. A trove of 350 paintings was found in her condo and now enlivens the homes of her many friends and families.
 
Friends and family will be received on Friday, December 15 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Kane Funeral Home; 25 Catoonah Street, Ridgefield. Remarks of remembrance and tribute will be offered at 1:00 PM at the funeral home. Interment will be private.

Built in 1880 as the A.L. Benedict House, this welcoming Victorian farmhouse captured the imagination of A. Barton Hepburn who had it moved to its current location to be at the center of his expansive estate where he hosted friends from NYC and Boston. The Hepburn era gave High Ridge its nickname "Publisher's Row" for being home to notable book publishers, artists, entertainers, bankers, and philanthropists, contributing to the vibrancy for which Ridgefield is still known.

Over the past 31 years, the current owners have lovingly restored and remodeled this notable home to create their own country compound offering 5,300sf of living space complete with heated gunite pool, pool house/studio (528sf), and captivating 4 story home (4,775sf) offering the best of old and new. Total 6 bedrooms, 4 full/2 half baths , and 5 fireplaces with over $1.2M invested in interior reconfiguration; house re-steeled; kitchen and bath renovations; lower level remodeling; C/A; pool/pool house; master bedroom suite with  fireplace, built-ins, plus elegant bath with air massage tub and radiant heated floor.

Today, the Benedict House has kept its place at the heart of the action; host to numerous fundraising events, and immortalized as the happy home of Zona in the children's book The Dog Who Went to Main Street.

Ridgefield Public School District Begins 2018-19 Budget Presentations to BOE http://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/life/58453-ridgefeild-public-school-district-begins-2018-19-budget-presentations-to-boe58453-ridgefeild-public-school-district-begins-2018-19-budget-presentations-to-boe http://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/life/58453-ridgefeild-public-school-district-begins-2018-19-budget-presentations-to-boe58453-ridgefeild-public-school-district-begins-2018-19-budget-presentations-to-boe

The Proposed 2018-2023 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)

The Ridgefield Public School’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) continues to be a dynamic planning and decision-making instrument that drives the evaluation and identification of those district assets in need of improvement; replacement; renewal; and/or upgrade. As a rolling document, the CIP provides the guide work for the development and maintenance of those anticipated and necessary long-range improvements within a framework of sound planning and fiscal management over a five-year planning horizon.

Prepared by Joe Morits, District Facilities Director, Dr. Robert Miller, Director of Technology and Operations Development and Business Manager Paul Hendrickson, this five-year roadmap typically contains long-term assets and project cost values in excess of $50,000 each. Capital projects eligible for inclusion in the plan are those operational infrastructure assets that carry an estimated useful life-cycle of five to ten years. As in past years, the clear position of the CIP is to properly balance expenditures over the full five-year horizon by maintaining an annual expenditure range of $1.5M to $2.5M districtwide.

To support the five-year plan, the district is requesting $1,449,388 in fiscal school year 2018-2019 for the implementation of the following seven capital projects:

1. Remove and replace 30-year old oil tank at SES, $100,750

2. Asbestos abatement and re-tiling (phase 2/4) at SES, $121,900

3. Replace and upgrade building automation system at SRMS and RES, $97,538

4. Technology and facilities upgrades for continuity of safety and school operations, District-wide, $475,700

5. Universal, inclusive playground at RES, $98,133 (Project Moved to Town ADA Compliance Budget Line - not part of RPS Capital Budget )

6. Cooling tower removal and replacement at RHS, $153,500

7. Replacement of running track at RHS stadium, $500,000

These projects address environmental, health, and technology and facility upgrades to ensure the continuity of safety and school operations. More specifically, the core infrastructure for the district’s heating and cooling systems, security systems, and instructional systems are all supported by network infrastructure and wireless technology. The district needs to upgrade the core infrastructure to mitigate risk associated with the aging network systems and outdated wireless units that do not support industry standard wireless protocols. The district’s daily safety, security, and heating and cooling operations are all supported by the outdated networked infrastructure.

Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance is getting ready for their annual Nutcracker and they are excited for a new improvement, adding a growing tree to this year‘s production held annually at the Ridgefield Playhouse.

Artistic Director Amy Piantaggini says, “While our classic tradition stands the test of time, each year we add something special to the production, directed by Alexander Glaz. Cyrus Newitt is making my dream come true for a growing tree that will further dazzle audiences!”

Newitt is a new resident of Ridgefield and has volunteered his services to RCD’s creation of a magnificent new growing Christmas tree with lighting effects. Ms. Piantaggini met Mr. Newitt this summer during Thrown Stone’s acclaimed run of Milk, which premiered at Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance. Mr. Newitt is Thrown Stone’s Production Manager, and also played the role of Cyril in the play by Ross Dunsmore. 

Nutcracker Director Alexander Glaz says tells us, “This year, not only do we have the largest Nutcracker with over 100 participants, but we have also taken this annual production to new technical and artistic heights! This magical spectacle will surely delight the whole family.”

There are five performances between December 15 and 17th. For tickets visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org.

RVNA Health Source: Unique Holiday Gifts http://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/life/58446-rvna-health-source-unique-holiday-gifts58446-rvna-health-source-unique-holiday-gifts http://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/life/58446-rvna-health-source-unique-holiday-gifts58446-rvna-health-source-unique-holiday-gifts

Do you have a loved one living alone or in deteriorating health whom you worry about? Would you like to do something to make their life a little safer and easier? Consider these gifts: a Lifeline medical alert device and/or the non-medical help of a certified home health aide to assist with bathing, housekeeping and meal preparation.

Lifeline provides a vital safety net for those living independently and provides quick access to help 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency. Research shows there is a small window of opportunity in which medical assistance can make a difference for someone suffering a heart attack or stroke. Lifeline’s unique “Auto Alert” personal response pendant detects a fall with 95% accuracy and signals for help after 30 seconds if your loved one cannot.

The new Lifeline “Go Safe” medical alert system with GPS technology is appropriate for more active and mobile individuals. With any Lifeline system,

RVNA is contacted if a hospitalization occurs and our staff will visit your loved one to plan a smooth transition back home. RVNA’s highly trained personnel install and provide education on the use of the Lifeline device. Monthly fees are affordable, and service calls and battery replacement are free. Another “gift” to be considered is non-medical home care, hourly or daily, by HomeCare by RVNA. It may be just what your loved one needs to continue living independently, or it can provide respite care in the event a devoted caregiver needs a break. An aide is able to assist with activities of daily living, provide companionship and enable a person to remain in their home as long as possible.

For more information on Lifeline medical alert devices or HomeCare by RVNA, contact RVNA at 203-438-5555.

Founded in 1914, RVNA is an accredited non-profit Medicare-certified home healthcare agency that also supports public health and safety, and promotes the highest quality of life. RVNA provides compassionate care to all individuals, whether young or old, through a continuum of care that encompasses health care at home and in the community. RVNA also provides home health aides and companionship through a non-medical subsidiary called HomeCare by RVNA and outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy in its Rehab by RVNA facility at 27 Governor Street, Ridgefield.
