BBB’s resource page on natural disasters offers information on what to do before, during a storm and after a storm, how to prevent fraud and scams related to storms, and how to give wisely in the wake of a storm, for both businesses and consumers: Many donors are seeking ways to help those in need as Kentucky and other states begin to recover from the damage caused by severe storms and multiple tornadoes. BBB’s recommends before making a contribution or sending a donation to verify if the charity they choose to support meets the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. Instead of clicking on links that others may send in texts and social media, consider making a cash donation directly through the charity’s own website. In an emergency situation, this is likely the fastest way of sending help.

It is safest to give to crowdfunding postings of people you personally know. If that is not possible, consider a posting that is being managed by an established charitable organization that can be checked out. • Not all crowdfunding sites operate alike. Some crowdfunding platforms do a better job of vetting postings and projects that appear on their site than others. Review the site’s description of its procedures. If they do take precautions, they generally announce that fact loudly to help encourage giving. • See if the posting describes how funds will be used. Vague descriptions of how the collected funds will be used should also be a yellow caution light.

By Sally J. Buemi Selectman, Town of North Haven

I was just thinking about the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2023 budget process which has just begun. During the next two months, each town department and the Board of Education will come before the Board of Finance (BOF) to make their funding requests for this next budget. These meetings are known as budget workshops and they start on Saturday January 15th. After the completion of these workshops, the BOF will meet in March to formulate an initial budget to be presented at the April 5, 2022 Public Hearing. The BOF will then meet again to PDNH DQ\ ¿QDO UHYLVLRQV EHIRUH WKH $QQXDO %XGJHW 7RZQ 0HHWLQJ RQ May 9th. The budget will then go before the voters at Referendum on May 17, 2022. I will do my best to keep you informed throughout this process, and I will offer my opinions. I know that you, as a taxpayer, are most concerned about the mill rate, and whether your taxes will be going up.

DELAYED GRIEF Grief is unpredictable and takes many forms. For some, it can take a while to truly settle in, and this is known as delayed grief. It can occur months to years after losing a loved one and can often take people by surprise. Changes in behavior, as well as emotional reactions, can occur. Delayed grief happens for many reasons and is the brain’s way of insulating someone from a painful experience so temporary functioning can continue. People can’t always process loss right after it happens. Delayed grief is common for those with a lot on their plate during the time of the loss, which creates a need to carry on without taking much time to process what has happened. QUOTE: “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” -George Bernard Shaw

When someone we cherish dies, there is grief that needs to be shared. Expressions of sympathy and the offering of yourself to help others following the funeral are welcomed. Your local funeral director can help family and friends locate available resources and grief recovery programs in your area. If you would like to learn more about the services we offer, please call 203-239-1179. We listen carefully to what your wishes are and pay attention to every detail as we carry them out. Our funeral home is located at 36 Washington Avenue.

Varsha Salani, D.M.D., LLC (203) 234-1901 Simple Measures to Support Your Immune System

Hamden: Immunology, how the immune system protects us from the world, is a hot topic right now. It is also a topic prone to misinformation. Are you curious to learn about your immune system and how to best support it to prevent unnecessary illness? Discover the strengths and secrets of your immune system by attending Hamden Public Library’s free virtual program “Simple Measures to Support Your Immune System” on Tue., January 25, from 6:30-7:30 pm. Dr. Lyndsey Maher will present this program. A licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in Hamden and a graduate of the University of Bridgeport’s School of Naturopathic Medicine and Acupuncture Institute, Dr. Maher will explain how to optimize and strengthen

the immune system with simple nutrient and lifestyle changes. She brings her personal story to the topic. Less than enamored with conventional medicine’s approach to her own health issues, she found naturopathic medicine. Healed from what plagued her, she sought to empower and educate others on how to make the lifestyle adjustments necessary to promote health, rather than just abate illness. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Register online at (click on “Programs”) or call (203) 287-2680. After signing up, you will receive a Zoom meeting link by email.

Lions Complete Vision Screening of North Haven Elementary Schools

For the sixth consecutive year, the North Haven Lions conducted vision screenings in the four elementary schools in North Haven, as well as the preschool classrooms at Green Acres School and the laboratory preschool at North Haven High School. Under a Memorandum of Understanding with the North Haven Department of Education signed by North Haven Superintendent of Schools Patrick Stirk, and Alan Sturtz, KidSight Coordinator for the North Haven Lions, mandated grades K-1 and 3-5, as well as pre-kindergarten, have been screened. Ever since Helen Keller inspired Lions to champion the cause of blindness in 1925, Lions Clubs International, the Global Leader in Humanitarian Service, has served and advocated for the blind and visually impaired. Lions Clubs International (LCI) is the world’s largest humanitarian service organization with over 49,000 clubs and almost 1.5 million members world-wide. Eye health is just one of LCI’s primary goals. Lions KidSight USA is a national program that puts Lions Clubs in the forefront of an effort to ensure that children receive eye screenings using a state-of-the-art photo-screening device and follow-up care when needed. Our mission is to ensure eye screening and follow-up care is given to all children, because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual: if a child cannot see well, he/she cannot learn well. Yet most young children do not get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age seven. A recent University of Michigan study, conducted by its Kellogg Eye Center over one year, concluded that children’s academic test scores improved approximate-

ly one (1) year of extra schooling after they had been identified with vision impairment and received eye glasses. This year, 1,155 children in the above mentioned grades were screened; 12% of the children screened were referred for a followup exam by an eye-care professional. Last year, because OF COVID restrictions and the 2nd grade and pre-schools unscreened, 11% percent of those screened were referred for a complete eye examination, and some of those were already wearing glasses; the state average for referrals generally hovers around 15%. The North Haven Lions, under the auspices of the Lions Eye Health Program (LEHP), uses the WelchAllyn SPOT vision screening device and provides printed documentation of the results of each individual screening to the nurses in each school. The screening may determine the presence of eye disorders including Astigmatism, Myopia, Hyperopia, Anisometropia, Strabismus, Amblyopia, and Anisocoria. Parents and school officials are reminded that that this is only a screening and not a complete eye examination. The Lions Eye Health Program recommends that all children have a complete eye examination performed by an ophthalmologist or optometrist at least once between the ages of three and five. In recent years, LEHP has expanded its program of free vision screenings to include special needs students, children enrolled in Head Start programs, and public and private pre-K learning centers. The goal is to eventually screen every child, because a young child may not know that she or he has a vision problem. Learning Center directors may contact Alan for additional information about the KidSight program at There will be no charge to the center for this service. For additional information about the North Haven Lions and their service projects, contact Ed Cohen, North Haven Lions President, at
