‘Such A Loving Baby’
This fall, two of Carter Hartle’s big sisters cheered on the Waterville Pop Warner Pee Wee squad. At every game, said their mom, Lisa Cittadino of Deansboro, Rachel and Haley’s teammates would rush up to hug Carter in his stroller. He loved the attention, often grabbing the shiny pompoms to wave and smiling at the girls. When the cheerleaders went into the stands to cheer at one game, the girls taught Carter the cheer. “He clapped his hands along with them,’’ Cittadino said. “The girls thought it was great he was doing a cheer and he kept clapping and laughing the whole game,’’ she said. Carter Evan Hartle, a month shy of turning 1 year old Dec. 13, died Sunday, Nov. 15 at his Deansboro home. Carter was attacked by the family’s dog that night and died of his injuries at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital shortly after. When Cittadino and her boyfriend, Joe Hartle Jr., learned they were expecting again, they brought the three girls - Rachel, Haley and youngest daughter Alexis - to the sonogram to find out the new baby’s gender. “The girls were thrilled they were getting a baby brother,’’ Cittadino said. “After he was born they would fight over who got to hold him. He was like a doll for them. The girls were always loving on him.’’ For the Complete Article, Click Here to Subscribe!

Village Sells Mill Property
The Waterville Village Board voted last week to sell the former Waterville Knitting Mill site to local developer Dave Sullivan for an apartment building. Under the stipulations of the sale, Sullivan must build one building with six apartment units. He also has to plant trees in front of the sidewalk facing Putnam Street and grant the village a right-of-way in front of three existing houses on the Conger Avenue corner. Those requirements are part of the $20,000 sale contract, which was approved 4-1 after a 25-minute executive session following the board’s 45 minutes in public session. Trustee Tom McNamara voted no. By setting up the requirements for the Putnam Street land, the Village Board allows Sullivan to avoid another run through trying to get the area zoned other than as industrial.

CCS Upstanders Commended
Clinton Central School’s Board of Education meeting last week recognized many students for helping make their school a better place by standing up for others in need. As part of the Bright Spots portion of the meeting, district superintendent Dr. Stephen Grimm and health and physical education pre-K to 12th grade chair Christina Buschmann called students up one by one to receive their certificates in front of the standing room only audience of family and friends. “This is so exciting to see the community we are creating in our Middle School, where they are caring about others and standing up for other people,” Buschmann said of the Upstanders. “I’m really proud of these kids.” “Thank you, guys. You’ve done a good job,” board president Mary Lou Lauchert told the students. Student artists from the district displayed some of their creations that were recently shown at the New York State School Boards Association Convention in New York City.  For the Complete Article, Click Here to Subscribe!

Bourdeau, who at the time was a store employee, was developed as a suspect in the case. It was learned he had been entering the Redemption Center when the store was closed to steal money.
