The Winter Olympics are finally behind us and the USA should be proud!  The proudest moment was when the US Bobsled team and the Night Train earned the Gold for the first time in 62 years!!  What a way to end the building of the Olympic Bobsled in Connecticut.  Congratulations to not only the 4 man team (Steve Holcomb, Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler, and Curt Tomasevicz)  but also to Geoff Bodine, Bob Cuneo, Frank Briglia, Angelo Guerrera, and Tom Centinaro. 

 And congratulations to the Wolcott High School Weightlifting Team for their 4th straight win in the Naugatuck Valley League Weightlifting championship.  The competition took place at Wolcott High School on Saturday, March 6th.  Wolcott’s 150lb. Tucker Chicano was strong enough to squat 425 pounds, an NVL record for his 161-pound weight class.  Way to go “Wolcott Strength”!

 Spring was definitely teasing us this weekend with the unseasonable temperatures.  It was great to see people out enjoying the weather.  Peterson Park was full of families enjoying the weather and a lot of bikers and walkers were out on the road.  Please be safe!
