,QGLDQ0DVFRW6KRXOG3URXGO\5HPDLQ To The Editor: June 2, 2021 The BOE seems to be caving in to “cancel culture.” How naive of me. I thought North Haven was immune to cancel culture. Our history evolved from the Native American Indians of our Great Nation. Our streets are named for Indian Chiefs, as is our elementary school, Montowese. The Indian Mascot should proudly remain in our schools. My children attended North Haven schools and grandchildren, too. It’s our identity, our history, and who we are. Take this from us and only memories remain. Does the BOE have the authority to retire the mascot? Will the taxpayers be given the opportunity to vote on this historic matter? Barbara Fruin, North Haven

9RWH2XW%RDUGRI(GXFDWLRQ To The Editor: June 1, 2021 Our Indian Mascot and North Haven Indian Team Name has been with us since the 50’s, over 71 years! Now, all of a sudden, we are hearing about mental problems and harassment effecting our North Haven students because of our Indian Mascot. Could these far fetched complaints have anything to do with them being members of the Nipmuc Tribe, who are against using Indian QDPHVDQG,QGLDQPDVFRWV"7KH1LSPXF7ULEHKDG¿OHGDVWDWH6HQate bill in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The bill states it would “prohibit the use of Native American mascots by public schools in the Commonwealth” and would include banning the use of several team names including Indians, Redskins, Savages, Chiefs, Braves, and others. Connecticut denied such a bill. How could Connecticut approve it anyway, with two Indian Casinos? The Nipmuc Nation Tribal Council is blaming the high suicide rate between American Indians or Alaska Native males, on the use of Indian names and Mascots. That is a sick joke! It is common knowledge that the conditions on the reservations they have been forced to live RQDUHKRUUL¿F$OFRKROLVPDQGVXLFLGHVDUHDGDLO\SDUWRIWKHLUOLYHV and not just the youths! Listening to the comments on the literature the Board of Education has received, at their April 22, 2021 workshop, from this anti-group, as well as their own remarks, has convinced me they are prejudice. Therefore, I feel they can not fairly rule in this matter.  2XU6HOHFWPDQVXJJHVWHGWDNLQJLWWRDUHIHUHQGXPEXWZDVÀDWO\ refused by the Chairperson, Anita Anderson! Why, what’s she afraid of? Then suddenly, they are not just an Advisory Committee anymore and per the attorneys, have the authority to rule on the Indian issue. Seven people deciding for 23,799.00 taxpayers? The only fair way to vote is a referendum. Many seniors and others, are not computer literate and can not sign petitions on line, or even know about this issue!!! I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE POPULAR VOTE! Robert Mazurek, North Haven

$EOHWR6KDUHDQG&DUH7KDQNVWR&ODULRQ To The Editor: June 3, 2021 Thank you, Hamden Clarion Hotel! The Hamden Woman’s Club of Hamden, like many other organizations, struggled to stay connected this past year. With the Hamden Community Library and Senior Center closed for meetings we were concerned that our good works in the community would suffer. Clarion’s General Manager, Mr. Brian Moore, came to our rescue. He offered us both the coffee room and conference room. What a lovely facility! The meeting areas were well appointed, very clean and the staff was amazing! Thanks to The Hamden Clarion Hotel and Mr. Brian Moore, we were able to continue to share and care. Hamden Woman’s Club

END OF LIFE PLANNING

No one knows more about what you want for your end of life plans than you do, and that is why it is crucial to put things in writing. If you don’t have an end of life plan, your state laws decide who gets everything you own. Preparation makes it easier and less stressful for family members to set plans into motion and know they are acting according to your wishes. It’s important to understand that the four components of end of life planning are: completing an advanced directive or living will, appointing an individual with a durable power of attorney for health care, having a document for distribution of assets, and specifying preferences for type and place of care.

We purchase insurance to help us in situations that may happen, such as accidents, earthquakes, fire, floods and theft. We should also consider the pre-planning of our funeral service as it not only lets our survivors know what our wishes are, but it can also avoid financial hardship. To learn about our funeral services, please call 203239-1179. We strive to be the one source that families rely on by offering affordable options and treating each family with the most caring and compassionate service possible. You’ll find us at 36 Washington Avenue.

Second Saturday Service Project Restocking Food Banks North Haven: On Saturday, June 12, the North Haven Lions will be back at the North Haven Congregational Church, from 10am-1pm to Restock the Food Banks. Hunger still exists; your previous donations have been distributed to needy families in our community, and our local food banks need to be restocked. The following items are in most need: Parmalat Milk, Juice, Jelly, Mayonnaise (30 oz), Coffee, Pasta Sauce (24 oz jars), Rice, and Beans. Just drive up and masked, gloved volunteers will take your bags or boxes of food. No donation is too small 100 people bringing 1 can or box of food means 100 cans or boxes of food for the Food Banks. And we continue to Recycle/ Repurpose Eyeglasses. Drop off your no-longer-needed eyeglasses. Millions of people living in low- and middle-income countries lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable eyeglasses to support the Lions Recycle for Sight Program. AND, we are again seeking support for the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. The

Lions of Connecticut have been supporters for many of its 60 years of training and providing guide dogs to clients where they live and work and transforming the lives of people who are blind. COVID has forced the closing of the breeding centers to the public, but the puppies keep coming. We are asking for blankets, towels and Milk bone (Fidelco approved brand) Dog Biscuits (any size) for the dogs. You can learn more about this amazing organization at Fidelco.org. The North Haven Lions Club has been serving the community since 1952 and is part of Lions Clubs International (LCI), the world’s largest humanitarian service organization with 1.4 million members world-wide. Concern for Hunger, Vision, the Environment, Childhood Cancer, and Diabetes Awareness, are LCI’s primary goals; and, through Second Saturday, the North Haven Lions is involved in many of these projects for our community. For more information about our service activities, and to be part of something meaningful, contact the North Haven Lions Club at northhavenctlions@gmail.com.

Tips To Keep Kids Learning and Having Fun All Summer Long

14 West Shepard Ave, Hamden

Now enrolling Pre-K to 8th grade for the Fall Our Tuition is Less than Day Care

(StatePoint) With the encouragement and support of parents, a love of learning can begin early and last a lifetime. To inspire kids to have fun while learning this summer, consider the following tips: • Reward Curiosity: Children are naturally curious, and the way you respond to their questions, stories, and observations about the world around them is important. Be sure to reward their curiosity with your authentic attention. • Build Reading Confidence: Literacy is the foundation of all learning, and you can help improve reading comprehension and fluency, while building spelling, vocabulary and writing skills, using tools that offer instant guidance and feedback. The interactive pages of the LeapReader Learn-to-Read 10-Book Bundle build reading and writing confidence by allowing kids to sound out letters and words, or follow along with the stories as they’re read out loud. Each book includes lively character voices that spark interest, as well as activities that introduce vowel sounds, sight words, word blending, spelling skills and more. The LeapReader also helps kids build writing skills with stroke-by-stroke guidance and instant feedback using mess-free, no-ink paper. • Get Outdoors: Whether it’s a trip to the backyard or a vacation out of town, a change of scenery gives young minds an opportunity to absorb and process new information, while encouraging them to explore new sights and sounds. Be sure to mix things up whenever possible. • Introduce Learning Toys: Games, puzzles and creative challenges are all interactive experiences that can enhance learning. Check out learning toys with these features built right in, such as the LeapStart Preschool Success interactive learning system from LeapFrog. It features touch-and-talk pages that help build math, reading, problemsolving skills and more. An expansive library of books, sold separately, cover a variety of preschool through first grade subjects, with more than 30 activities in every book. Many activities have two levels with over 50 key skills per grade level, so kids can play and learn at the right level and move up when they’re ready. • Expand Horizons: Exploring new places can build knowledge, as well as the natural curiosity that helps inspire kids to keep learning. Using the Magic Adventures Globe, young explorers can travel the world and experience new places, languages, cultures, animals, geography, habitats and more through high-quality BBC videos. Featuring a 2.7inch integrated video screen, animations and live-action videos fully immerse kids in the curriculum to provide a better understanding of the world through more than five hours of videos. Kids can also play three interactive games called Around the World, Quiz Show and Where in the World to explore the globe, challenge a friend and solve mysteries. With interactive tools, toys and strategies, it’s always the right time of year to get your child excited to learn!

Connex Credit Union Announces Coins-for-Change Q2 Charities

North Haven: From now through June 30, 2021, residents can help make a significant difference in their communities by cashing in their spare change. As part of its Coins-for-Change program, Connex Credit Union will collect its regular coin-cashing machine fees and donate 100 percent of the money to four charitable organizations. As part of Connex’s philanthropic initiative ConnexCares, Coins-forChange supports four new charities each quarter and contributes more than $14,000 annually. It is available to anyone, including those who are not members of the credit union. • Connex’s Guilford Branch located at 849 Boston Post Rd. will donate to Tail to Paw Animal Support. Tail to Paw Animal Support works to ensure that no owner has to abandon their companion animal on the street or at a shelter due to their poverty level or housing status. They provide assistance with food, supplies, and basic medical visits and vaccinations. Money donated to Tail to Paw would go towards medical care of household pets, food or other supplies for families in poverty, homeless or who have been directly impacted by COVID. • Connex’s Hamden Branch located at 2100 Dixwell Avenue. will donate to Hamden Fathers Football & Cheerleading Association. Hamden Fathers Football and Cheerleading Association is an all-volunteer charter that organizes and administers the Hamden Hurricanes Football and Cheerleading Association. HFFCA believes that every child deserves the opportunity to participate regardless

of socio-economic challenges. Donations would go toward operating the program and providing hardship scholarships which make the program possible. • Connex’s Monroe Branch located at 155 Main St. will donate to Mikeys’ Way Foundation. The mission of Mikeys’ Way Foundation is to enrich the lives of children suffering from cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. The foundation strives to create connection and diversion to help children cope with the emotional and physical hardships of long-term, debilitating treatment with the use of today’s technology. Funds raised would help with purchasing laptops, tablets, and other WiFi-ready electronics for the children. • Connex’s North Haven Branch located at 412 Washington Ave. will donate to Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven (NHS). NHS strengthens neighborhoods by developing affordable housing and increasing homeownership opportunities. NHS provides financial coaching and homebuyer education, including how to make homes safe and energy efficient. Funds raised would help with four key programs: Affordable Real Estate Development, Homebuyer/Homeowner Education, Community Building & Organizing and Community Sustainability. For more information, or to learn how your local nonprofit or charitable organization can participate in the Coins-for-Change program, please contact Roquita Johnson at rjohnson@connexcu.org or 1-800CR-UNION.

State of the Art Dentistry Emphasizing Cosmetics in a Therapeutic Environment

State Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) has voted for the passage of legislation protecting the rights of public employees to freely join or support unions. Sen. Cabrera, Vice Chair of the Labor and Public Employees Committee, said he strongly supports this bill. Senate Bill 908, “An Act Concerning Access To Certain Public Employees By The Exclusive Bargaining Representative Of A Public Employer Bargaining Unit,” takes steps to protect the rights of public employees to join or support unions, including: • Establishing requirements for public employers, such as the state, municipalities or boards of education, to provide public employee unions with certain information about new and current

to cancel/change deductions to unions, rather than employers. • Prohibits public employers from deterring or discouraging public employees or job applicants from becoming or remaining members of public employee unions, authorizing union representation or authorizing dues or deductions. • Makes public employers encouraging employees to resign or decline a union membership a prohibited labor practice. • Makes an employer’s failure to comply with the bill a violation of the duty to bargain and an unfair labor practice. These steps are vital to ensuring public employers and unions are operating on the same page and provide workers at public workplaces with additional information and access to learning about unionization, leveling the playing field. Workers still can make their own decisions on whether or not they ultimately want to join a union. The legislation, which passed the Labor and Public Employees Committee by a vote of 9-4 in March, would have no fiscal impact to the state or municipalities. The legislation largely codifies currently standing labor and unionization practices. Labor organizations including the CSEA SEIU Local 2001, AFSCME Council 4 and AFT Connecticut, representing tens of thousands of public employees, endorsed the legislation earlier this year, citing its clarifications of labor law to ensure unions and public employers continue to work together as well as clarification of existing laws and regulations covering collection of union dues. Senate President Martin M. Looney testified earlier this year that the bill addresses several recommendations made by a Connecticut task force on domestic workers and will provide them with fair and safe working conditions. He cited the 2017 Supreme Court case “Janus V. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees,” which changed public sector unionization standards and allowed public sector workers to enjoy benefits of union representation even in quitting the union.
