North Haven Garden Club Welcomes New Member At September Meeting

Pictured Above: NHGC Membership Chair Italia Avitable welcoming new member Gwen Ostrinski. Right: Examples of the different types of ferns in Connecticut. North Haven: The North Haven Garden Club held WKHLU ¿UVW LQ SHUVRQ LQGRRU meeting in September and also welcomed a new member, Gwen Ostrinski, to our club. The meeting was on “Native Plants For Your Garden With A Focus On Ferns” by Charlotte Pyle. Charlotte likes plants, and has managed to hold a connection to plants in her career and her home life. As an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, she developed and ran a native demonstration garden. In our gardens native plants provide a means for us to promote conservation in the larger environment, as well as a source of interesting and beautiful plants that enhance the natural function of the landscape. Charlotte’s presentation provided the group with information on where WR¿QGLQIRUPDWLRQRQZKDWSODQWVDUHQDWLYHWR&RQQHFWLFXWZKDWQXUVHU\ labels can tell about native plants, and how to use native plants in the garden. Her focus was on ferns, including a hands-on look at some easy to grow ferns. Hand-outs on non-woody native plants suited to our gardens were available for all. FUN FACT: Ferns will die back when it gets cold in winter, but they will begin to grow again in spring. Most ferns spread quickly, and some grow quite large. Know their habits, sizes, and spreads before planting...Ferns generally require rich, moist soil with extra organic matter, but some prefer drier, less fertile soil, so do your research.

The Governor has proclaimed that the state is open for business, launching D WD[SD\HUIXQGHG IDOO WRXULVP campaign to attract out-of-state visitors. What message is this sending? It’s sending the message, and rightfully so, that COVID is a virus that is here and we as a state have shown that it can be managed. Current statistics prove this point,” said Senator Cicarella. “This message is correct. What is troubling is the inaction of the

majority in the legislature to fully restore the voice of the people in Hartford. I have not received one phone call or email from my constituents indicating that these powers should be renewed for DQRWKHU¿YHPRQWKV “Rightfully so, they are concerned with the epidemic of juvenile and violent crime in our district and across the state. Regarding COVID, we always talk about numbers and we see updated infection rates, hospitalizations and more thrown at us daily. What we don’t hear about is the dramatic spike in violent crime. We had a 31 percent increase in murder in the state over the past year. The nation saw a 30 percent increase. This is the worst increase in our state’s history. We must focus on what matters to families in our state, and that is public safety,” he said. The resolution, which passed the House on Monday, cleared the Senate Tuesday 18-15 with three absent. Sen. Paul Cicarella represents Connecticut’s 34th Senate District that includes the towns of Durham, East Haven, North Haven and Wallingford. www.sena

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

North Haven: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer will affect 1 in 8 women. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the U.S. The National Center for Biotechnology Information published a study WKDWIRXQGWKDWRQHRIWKHPRVWVLJQL¿FDQWEDUULHUVWRPDPPRJUDSK\ZDV a lack of insurance coverage, with nearly 80 percent of women indicating that high costs were a barrier for receiving this procedure. This legislative session, I stood in strong support of a proposal to provide insurance coverage for diagnostic testing needed for early detection of breast cancer. The legislation, +%DLPHGWR¿[DORRSKROHLQ current law, which mandates coverage screening of dense breasts but doesn’t include or require coverage of diagnostic tests and breast procedures. 7KH ELOO VRXJKW WR H[SDQG XSRQ required health insurance coverage under certain individual and group health insurance policies to include coverage for colorectal cancer diagQRVHV DQG UHODWHG EHQH¿WV EUHDVW KHDOWK DQG EUHDVW FDQFHU EHQH¿WV Rep. Dave Yaccarino UHJDUGOHVV RI VH[ GLDJQRVWLF DQG screening (mammograms, comprehensive breast ultrasounds, and magnetic resonance imaging of an entire breast or breasts), breast biopsies, prophylactic mastectomies for certain insureds, and breast reconstructive surgery for certain insureds. The bill aimed to close a loophole insurance companies have been using, in turn allowing more women to get the diagnostic tests needed for HDUO\GHWHFWLRQRIEUHDVWFDQFHUZRXOGUHPRYHVRPHRIWKH¿QDQFLDOSUHVsures associated with diagnostic breast cancer testing, and would allow for early detection. The bill passed overwhelmingly in the House of Representatives but unfortunately did not make it into the Senate chamber for a vote. I am hopeful that the topic will resurface again during the 2022 legislative session, which begins on February 9, 2022. Previously during the 2018 legislative session, I again took action on this topic by co-sponsoring and supporting PA 18-159, which was signed LQWRODZLQDQGZHQWLQWRHIIHFWLQ7KLVELOOH[SDQGHGWKHW\SHV of breast imaging services that certain health insurance policies must covHUDQGUHGH¿QHGDPDPPRJUDPDVZHOODVHOLPLQDWHGFRSD\PHQWVDQG deductibles for certain breast ultrasounds. These are preventive procedures. Enacting a new policy will encourage, and no longer discourage, patients from obtaining a potentially lifesaving breast ultrasound screening. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we honor the survivors, we remember those who we lost and consider their hard-fought battles. Thankfully due to early detection, many lives have been saved. I would like to remind the women and men in the 87th General Assembly District to self-check, ultrasound, and mammogram as recommended by your treating physician. What may seem like a small inconvenience today, may be lifesaving. Sincerely, State Representative Dave Yaccarino

Heartfelt Thanks

To The Editor: October 6, 2021 On Saturday, October 2nd, my wife and I were at Bagelicious at approximately 7:00am. While standing in line to place an order, I got dizzy and fell backwards banging my head and body on the concrete floor. Fortunately for me there were three EMTs and a paramedic in line behind me. They immediately came to my assistance and gave me immediate medical attention. I advised them that I had a link recorder implanted in my chest for this type of medical problem that may arise. I advised them who my vascular physician was and they contacted his office. They recommended that I go to the hospital because of my vital signs but I refused. Being alert at this thime they advised me to have my breakfast and they would remain there until they heard back from my doctor’s office, which would be approximately 20 min. My physician, upon returning their call also advised them that I should go to the hospital for a further examination which I did do. I would like to thank these members of Nelcon Ambulance (unfortunately I did not obtain their names) for their professionalism, courtesy, and medical knowledge on how they handled my medical condition. I believe the Town of North Haven will be greatly served by the men and women of Nelcon Ambulance. Thank You Very Much!! Richard Astorino, Retired North Haven Police Dept.

Re-Elect Board of Selectmen Member Sally Buemi

To The Editor: October 6, 2021 My name is Sally Buemi and I am running for re-election as a Selectman for the Town of North Haven. I have been serving on the Board of Selectmen for the past eight years. During that time, I’ve been privileged to talk with many citizens, and I appreciate the kind words of support I’ve received over the years. It has not been easy being the lone democrat on the North Haven Board of Selectmen. But I’ve worked very hard, to always be prepared, and to represent ALL North Haveners. I take my role on the Board very seriously; it is an honor to serve the town I love, my hometown, where I’ve lived all my life. I’ve developed a good working relationship with my fellow Board members, but I’ve always been certain to emphasize areas of disagreement with Mr. Freda. I believe respectful discussion of different opinions is good for the Town and leads to better decision making. I also enjoy writing my monthly column to keep folks informed about town events. I also appreciate the many opportunities I’ve had to organize or participate in special events in Town; like the special ceremony in 2015 for World War II veterans, or in 2018 for World War I veterans, or the recent 9-11 ceremony on the Green. These events are an important part of being a member of the Board of Selectmen, a function I am honored to serve. I believe I have the skills and experience to serve on the Board of Selectmen. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Master’s degree in Public Administration, both from UCONN, and a law degree from Western New England College. I served 2 years on the North Haven Community Services Commission, 4 years on the Board of Finance, and now 8 years on the Board of Selectmen. I have been operating my own law practice here in North Haven for over 35 years. I am anxious to keep working hard for the Town. I am asking for your vote on November 2nd. All polling places will be open from 6 AM to 8 PM, and you can also vote by absentee. Respectfully Submitted, Sally J. Buemi, North Haven

He will continue to work effortlessly for all citizens and businesses in our community.

An Endorsement for Carl Kordek

To The Editor: October 6, 2021 One of the many reasons why I love living in North Haven is that there are so many great folks invested and involved in the community. I became aware of Carl Kordek’s candidacy for Selectman back in March and have found him pleasant, responsive, respectful, and forward thinking. It has been really nice to geek out with someone about the possibility of a WiFi mesh on the green, or the possibility of bringing a farmers market here regularly. Carl has been a regular face at meetings this year and it is clear when speaking with him that he has absorbed quite a bit about how the town runs. He is stepping up to help a town he loves. He has my vote this November and I hope you will consider him too. Thank you, Amanda Gabriele, North Haven

We have gone through a great deal together and we have accomplished a great deal together. We have endured major storms, tornados, hurricanes and blizzards and we have always come through together as a strong community. Our accomplishments include bringing in new businesses, balancing budgets, earning the coveted Triple A bond rating gold star designation, building a middle school, building a new police station, building new fire houses, paving over 120 miles of roadway, improving and investing in updated technology, reinforcing our cyber security defense systems, developing an emergency management center, increasing resources in our 911 dispatch center, and developing an emergency broadcast message system enabling me to communicate with our citizens in emergency situations. We accomplished all of this together and in the last 10 years, 6 out of those last 10 years have had no tax increases. In the past two years, we have reduced the mill rate and added more services. I have been proud to represent each of you and represent our town as President of Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, as the Chairman of the Regional Council of Governments, as a member of the Police Officers Standard Training Council, as the Co- Chair of the State Rail Advisory Committee and as Chairman of the Regional 911 emergency dispatch MedCom committee. All of this has enabled our town to have very high visibility on a regional level, on a statewide level and a federal level with my many contacts and relationships at all of these levels. Our plan for the future includes continuing to grow our top line revenue by bringing in new businesses, bringing in a new train station, reinvesting in education and public safety, continuing to provide outstanding services in all of our departments and improving all of our town parks and adding more recreational activities for you and your children. The safety and the quality of life for you and your families is of paramount importance to me. Coming from the Corporate world, when I entered into a career in local government I noticed that many politicians and new candidates engage in hollow and empty rhetoric. They try hard to sound good but they fall far short in performance or they do not know what they are talking about because of their total lack of experience in ever managing or leading any entity. For as long as you would like me to be your First Selectman, I can assure you that this government will continue to face every challenge, will always be action oriented and will always have a laser like focus on delivering performance and creating positive outcomes for our town. I hope that I can continue to receive the same wonderful support during this upcoming election that you have given to me these past 12 years. It would be my honor to continue to be your First Selectman.

Area Craft Fairs, Bazaars, Festivals, Auctions, Rummage Flea Markets & Tag Sales Church Festivals HAMDEN/CHESHIRE Art teacher Stefania Munzi-Logus is using her talents to spread awareness and empathy for kids with hearing loss and other disabilities. Her first book, Jojo’s Tiny Ear, tells the story of her son, Joseph, who was born with microtia. The book began as an effort to normalize Joseph’s condition. Joseph has one ear that is undeveloped and he wears a hearing aid held on by a headband. In her teaching career, she had never met a child with microtia and realized there was little out there to educate people about microtia! Stefania, a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Albertus Magnus College with a Fine Arts degree, began painting portraits of Jojo with the hearing aid and tiny ear prominently featured! To show that he was more than just his microtia, the portraits also depicted him playing with his dog, at the beach, and even travelling to Italy! The project got a positive reception from the hearing loss community and led to commissions to paint other children with special needs. Stefania decided to create a book as a love poem to her son that would also reach out to the larger community. The overarching message is one of inclusion for everybody by embracing rather than hiding the things that make us different! Along the way, Jojo’s Tiny Ear, educates the reader on why Jojo wears a headband, what kinds of things he can hear, and how to communicate with him! Most importantly, that a disability doesn’t define a person! The book has had a great deal of support and gotten wonderful advance reviews!. Fellow author, Dr. Justine Greene who was born with microtia, called it “playful and informative” and highlighted the importance of “introducing children and families to the specifics associated with the condition.” Dr Sheryl Lewin, a specialist in ear reconstruction surgery and founder of the non-profit Earicles says “Thank you for bringing awareness and understanding to facial differences and hearing loss. This beautifully illustrated children’s book can help facilitate dialogue towards empathy and compassion.” The Ear Community, a support group for families with hearing disabilities, included the book on its resources for families. Stefania hopes that the book, which is for sale anywhere books are sold and can be ordered from your local bookstore, will open conversations about hearing loss and other differences and build understanding and empathy! As she writes, “Be proud of what makes you, you. We all thrive with our own technique. You are valuable too. The world is more beautiful when we are all unique.” For more information, to request a review copy, or to schedule a book reading, interview, or other event, please contact: Walton Burns, Senior Editor, Alphabet Publishing, or (203) 912-2634.

Exceptional Service & Respect at a Difficult Time

CHOOSING A FUNERAL PROVIDER There is never a perfect time to look for the best funeral home. Although it may be painful either way, it’s better to find one for you or your loved one before you actually need to. Many people often choose a funeral home based on a trusted individual’s recommendation or its location. However, by limiting the scope of your search, you may be putting yourself at risk for paying more than necessary. There’s no other way to guarantee you’re getting the best value than to shop around and ask lots of questions. Important items to consider are how long the funeral home has been in business, its reputation, whether it is locally owned, and if they offer funeral packages. QUOTE: “Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.” -Maya Angelou

When you meet with a member of our staff to discuss your arrangements, we’ll provide you with a general price list to give you a basic idea of what our services cost. We’ll then ask you about your loved one to gain an understanding of the person the services will honor. Use this time to communicate your ideas and preferences, share your loved one’s life story, revisit memories, and highlight their accomplishments. To learn more about our funeral services, please call 203-239-1179. We invite you to visit our home at 36 Washington Avenue.

New Haven: The Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce has been honored by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) for the Chamber’s Small Business Resource Center. The Chamber received the Excellence in Economic Development Gold Award at the IEDC’s 2021 Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on October 5th. 7KH ,('& LV WKH ODUJHVW QRQSUR¿W SURIHVVLRQDO association for economic developers in the world. “The winners of IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development awards represent the best of economic development and exemplify the leadership that our profession strives for every day,” said 2021 IEDC Board Chair and Invest Buffalo Niagara, President, and CEO Tom Kucharski. The Chamber, with support from the United Illuminating Company (UI) and Regional Water Authority (RWA), created the Small Business Resource Center, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to address the needs of the region and to help support the small business community. “As a committed member of the business community, the Regional Water Authority (RWA) is active in chambers of commerce and other industry organizations. We seek opportunities to help promote job retention and economic growth in order to strengthen an inclusive economy in our region,” said Larry Bingaman, RWA President & CEO. “It’s a great honor that our work with the Greater New Haven Chamber and its differentiated Small Business Resource Center have been recognized by the IEDC. The goals of the Center and its programs are critically important – to help businesses grow and thrive, remain in the region and encourage workforce development.” Frank Reynolds, President and CEO of UI and Southern Connecticut Gas, said, “We’re proud of the Chamber of Commerce’s longstanding legacy of supporting area businesses, and thrilled the IEDC is recognizing their efforts. As the Greater New Haven community’s electric company for more than a century, we’re committed to helping our small business partners through collaborative efforts like this during these challenging times.” Anne Benowitz, Director of Economic Development for the Chamber, managed the program, conVLVWLQJ RI D WHDP RI ¿YH DUHD FROOHJH LQWHUQV ZKR reached out to 1,000 businesses in the Greater New Haven region. This outreach resulted in interactions with over 150 businesses and 180 resources or connections provided. With an average of three employees for every business reached, the program supported the retention of more than 3,000 jobs. President and CEO of the Chamber, Garrett Shee-

han, said, “It is a tremendous honor for the Chamber to be recognized by IEDC. Supporting our small businesses is the bedrock of the Chamber and we could not have done it without support from UI and the RWA. Our economic development programs are focused on bringing new jobs to the region and retaining businesses that are already here. The outreach and support from this program was just one part of the overall efforts to support our business community, and the Chamber was proud to be part of the effort.” Partnerships with stakeholders, such as the City of New Haven, the Connecticut Small Business Development Center, Workforce Alliance, the Small Business Administration, REX Development, Collab, and regional university partners, supported the Center in providing necessary emergency assistance. Resources provided included utility payment support, rental assistance, loan application support, marketing implementations, business planning resources, startup assistance, and connections to grow businesses. This program resulted in the creation of a pathway for present and future solutions, created relationships where none existed before, and maintained these companies in the Greater New Haven region. The Greater New Haven Chamber’s mission is to provide value through resources and services to its partner companies and to lead regional economic growth through bold and effective advocacy. The Chamber serves 15 municipalities, Bethany, Branford, Cheshire, East Haven Guilford, Hamden, Madison, Milford, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Wallingford, West Haven, and Woodbridge. Established in 1794, the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce is one of the three oldest business associations in the United States.

1. Bulk leaves must be placed at the curb not in the street or across sidewalks. Placing leaves in the street is a violation of Town Ordinance Sec. 180-11. 2. NO PLASTIC BAGS! Leaves may be brown-bagged and placed at the curb. Please note there will be no separate pick up for bagged leaves. Bagged leaves will be collected with bulk leaves. Brown bags must be at the curb on the designated collection week. 3. Bulk leaves are collected from residential properties Monday through Friday in accordance with the established schedule (listed below) and as weather conditions allow. In the event of a snow storm or other emergency, leaf collection will be temporarily suspended. Leaves are collected in the Fall only. 4. Bulk leaves must be placed at the curb by 5 a.m. on the Monday of your street’s designated collection week. 5. Avoid parking vehicles in the street during the collection period in your area. Do not park cars in or adjacent to any pile(s) of leaves. 6. Do not mix branches with bulk or bagged leaves. These may be cut,

bundled and tied for removal during normal refuse collection. The Town may refuse service if branches are mixed with leaves in order to protect workers and equipment. 7. If leaves begin to blow around, we suggest wetting the pile or making a small enclosure from chicken wire or snow fencing in which to hold the leaves. 8. Do not allow leaves to accumulate in/around storm drains or ditch lines to reduce the risk of flooding. (See Guideline #1.) 9. Town schedules have been established to reflect the traditional volume of leaves in various areas. High volume areas are normally collected first. 10. Weather permitting, FO may conduct a second bulk collection in those areas with a high volume of leaves. 11. Your cooperation with the above guidelines will enable FO staff to deliver effective services to you and your neighbors. 12. Residents may bring leaves year-round to the Recycling Center on Elm Street. The Recycling Center is open: Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Brown biodegradable bags of leaves may be left in the designated leaf disposal area. Leaves in plastic bags must be emptied from the bags into the designated disposal area. Residents should plan to use this facility for leaves from their yard during the Spring.

If you have questions concerning the leaf collection, please call the Field Operations - (203)239-5321, ext. 410.
