DEEP Re-imposes Alcohol Ban for 6 Recreation Areas Including Two in Southbury https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/places/5338-deep-re-imposes-alcohol-ban-for-6-recreation-areas-including-two-in-southbury5338-deep-re-imposes-alcohol-ban-for-6-recreation-areas-including-two-in-southbury https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/places/5338-deep-re-imposes-alcohol-ban-for-6-recreation-areas-including-two-in-southbury5338-deep-re-imposes-alcohol-ban-for-6-recreation-areas-including-two-in-southbury

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has re-imposed temporary alcohol bans for six state recreation areas.  These bans are in effect immediately and until August 25, 2021, at the following locations: 

  • Gardner Lake State Park, Salem
  • Paugussett State Forest (upper Section)/George Waldo State Park, Southbury
  • Wadsworth Falls State Park, Middletown/Middlefield
  • Lake Waramaug State Park, New Preston
  • Quaddick State Park, Thompson
  • Beach Pond Boat Launch, Voluntown, as well as the portion of Pachaug State Forest, within 500 yards inland from the Beach Pond shoreline.

In recent summers, including last year, these locations have experienced increased crowds and alcohol consumption, which led to increased incidents of misconduct, unruly behavior, property damage, trespass, and complaints by other visitors and the surrounding communities. 

A temporary alcohol ban provides DEEP’s law enforcement officers with an enforceable tool to dissuade inappropriate use of the state outdoor recreation areas and has been an effective tool employed to reduce negative behaviors and make state parks, forests, and boat launches safe and enjoyable for all.

“We want our parks, forests, boat launches, and waters to be peaceful, family-oriented places where adults and children can feel welcome and safe,” said Mason Trumble, Deputy Commissioner for Environmental Conservation. “This measure, combined with continued supervision and education by DEEP staff and officers, will help restore a welcoming and safe atmosphere for all.”

Danbury HS Senior takes 3rd Place in Annual Competition


 

Rep. Jahana Hayes (Congresswoman for CT-05) is pleased to announce the first place winner of the 2021 Congressional Arts Competition, Anna Goodwin, a junior at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, Connecticut, who was selected for her piece, "Allegro," a drawing in colored pencil. 

A total of four pieces were selected to be displayed in the Capitol Tunnel, her Connecticut and Washington, D.C. offices, and the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury for one year.

Each student shared what their artwork means to them:

------------------------------

1st Place: Anna Goodwin
Artwork: “Allegro" - drawn in colored pencil
Displayed: Capitol Tunnel

“Allegro means life or lively, commonly used in sheet music, to instruct musicians on the intended tone of the music. I grew up playing piano, cello, and singing so music has always been an important part of my life. My drawing is still life using objects that are important to me and tell my story. Each holds a unique meaning and is a part of who I am as a whole,” said Goodwin, a junior at Nonnewaug High School, Region 14 (Woodbury/Bethlehem), Connecticut


 

2nd Place: William Cario
Artwork: “Night” - captured as a photograph
Displayed: Washington, D.C. Office

“The inspiration for my photograph was to create a window into the setting of the barn in contrast to the dark night outside of it. While I had found this task difficult to achieve, I think what ended up making the photo was the cat entering the barn at the perfect time. The cat creates a subject that crosses that line from the dark outside to the warm welcoming inside of the barn and I believe it completes the purpose of the photo, which is to recreate the appeal of entering the barn at nighttime,” said Cario, a senior at Shepaug Valley High School, Region 12 (Washington, Bridgewater, Roxbury, Sherman) Connecticut.


 

3rd Place: Naomi Llanos
Artwork: “Nasty Habits” - drawn in acrylic on canvas
Displayed: Mattatuck Museum

“The inspiration for my piece is drawn from my own personal experience with anxiety. I struggle with generalized anxiety disorder and find it difficult to mask the physical symptoms of this disorder. I wanted to bring light to the very real struggle that many teenagers my age deal with by portraying an individual reacting to their own anxiety and how that looks and feels,” said Llanos, a senior Danbury High School in Danbury, Connecticut.


 

Honorable Mention: Mekhi Chambers
Artwork: “Fitting In” - drawn in pen and ink
Displayed: Waterbury Office


"Fitting In is an expression that many others are used to. The relatability in being a minority enclosed in a majority surrounding. This idea has been engrained into our lives for hundreds of years but still has an effect in current generations,” said Chambers, a senior at Nonnewaug High School, Region 14 (Woodbury/Bethlehem), Connecticut.

-----------------------------

This year, we received 88 submissions from 15 high schools in the district. The artwork was outstanding, thought-provoking, and truly highlighted the talent of our students. The submissions also presented a difficult decision for the judges tasked with selecting our winners. Congratulations to all the students who entered the 2021 Congressional Arts Competition and thank you to our judges. I commend all the students who took a chance on themselves to enter the competition. Please join me in celebrating these amazing young people.
