October Brings a Troupe of Scarecrows to the Green and Center Block Lawns

The North Haven Garden Club in conjunction with North Haven Recreation Department and North Haven Library, is sponsoring the 2nd Annual SCARECROW CONTEST. Join in the fun and show off your creative talent by making a scarecrow or two. The contest is open to everyone, whether it be a civic group or business, a family, children 5 and under, elementary school grade, middle or high school grade. There is a fee associated with the contest, which will be donated to the North Haven Community Services and the North Haven Library. PRIZES will be awarded! More Halloween fun is planned this year: a Scarecrow Design Workshop held at the North Haven Library on October 2; from October 2-31 there will be additional fun scheduled activities at the North Haven Library (check with library for more information), on October 24 - a HALLOWEEN PARTY at the Recreation Center from 6-7:30pm, and on October 26 - TRUNK or TREAT at the North Haven High School Parking Lot, from 4-5pm. The deadline for registration is October 4th. GUIDE-

LINES: Scarecrows must be in good taste for viewing for all and must be free standing and windproof.

Drop-off date is October 12th from 10am-12 noon at the Gazebo on Town Green. Judging will take place on Oct. 14 by the North Haven Garden Club.

The Town of Hamden is hosting an educational event about electric vehicles for all interested people to highlight the clean-air and cost-savings advantages of these now widely available vehicles. Mayor Curt Leng will proclaim Sept. 14-22 as “2019 Hamden Drive Electric Week.” Experienced EV owners will discuss why they are enthusiastic about their all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles and how they use them on their daily commutes and longer distance drives, as well as how they “refuel” by charging the cars’ batteries. The 2019 event is the second annual National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) event to be held in Hamden on Sat., Sept. 14, from 11am-3pm at Miller Memorial Library, 2901 Dixwell Ave. It is part of the ninth annual National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) and is one of more than 300 local events nationwide. Last year’s event in Hamden attracted over 120 participants, including 21 EV drivers. Participants will learn about the differences between electric vehicles and conventional gaspowered cars (including why EVs

are much less expensive to operate and maintain), the widespread locations and different types of charging stations and how EV drivers “refuel” at home, the wide range of EV models available now (with many more to come), and the benefits of electric vehicles for the environment and for public health. Attendees will learn about special savings programs for Connecticut EV drivers, including state rebates as well as federal tax credits, for purchasing and leasing electric vehicles. High performance sports cars, sedans, SUVs, and even pickup trucks are now or soon to be available in EV format, many with longer (over-200-mile) driving ranges. Plug-in vehicles by Nissan, Chevrolet, Honda, Toyota, BMW, Tesla, and other automakers will be displayed and some will be available for test ride-anddrives. Local auto dealers will provide vehicles for test drives. Participating dealers include Partyka Chevrolet, A-1 Toyota, and Executive Nissan.

Our Neighborhood Cat

To The Editor: September 4, 2019 To the family or families who home, shelter, feed, groom or in any way care for our neighborhood cat, I’d like to say thank you. If you live in the Watson Ave., Maple Ave. area, you probably know Haddie. She is mostly white with some pale calico coloring. She’s very unsure of strangers and will bolt if they try to approach. Haddie belonged to my next door neighbor before they moved and rehomed her so now she stops by to visit, “chat� and mooch snacks. I would enjoy talking with you if you care for Haddie in any way, especially if she was “rehomed� with you. She seems to have a pattern she follows. You can reach me at 203-843-7497.

I was just thinking about one million dollars. That’s about how much ZDVVSHQWGXULQJWKHODVWÂżVFDO\HDU  RQVWXIIWKDWZDV127LQ the budget. In our form of government, in which the people must approve a budget at the Referendum, or in which certain expenditures must be approved at a Town Meeting, how is that possible?

This million dollars came from a fund known as MRSA – which is a REGULAR REVENUE LINE ITEM in our income budget. MRSA comes from the State – about $1.4 million each year. Because MRSA is in our revenue budget, it is ear-marked to cover certain expenses in our approved expenditure budget. Therefore, it is the People’s money; it is not a checkbook for WKH)LUVW6HOHFWPDQDQG)LQDQFH'LUHFWRUWRVSHQGDVWKH\VHHÂżW  7KHPRQH\ZDVVSHQWRQVWXIIOLNHDQHZYDQ  UHF\FOLQJ WUXFNV  VDQLWDWLRQWUXFN  DQGQHZSORZWUXFNV   DQG RWKHU SXUFKDVHV , DP QRW QHFHVVDULO\ TXHVWLRQLQJ ZKHWKHU ZH QHHG DOO WKLV QHZ VWXII EXW , DP GHÂżQLWHO\ TXHVWLRQLQJ HOW, and by what authority it was purchased. This equipment was not in the budget. I asked the BOF Chairman why we had a Town Meeting in June of 2018 to approve $220,000 for security personnel in each school. He said because it was not in the budget. I said “I rest my case.â€? The Finance Director, Mr. Swinkoski, offered a different approach. He referred me to the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan at the end of the budget book, claiming that these expenditures were included there. State Law requires all municipalities to include a Five-Year Plan in each proposed budget. HOWEVER, on page 46 of our 18/19 Budget Book, at the beginning of the Five-Year Plan, it says, very clearly, the following: “The projects contained herein are included for planning SXUSRVHVQRWIRUWKHSXUSRVHRIUHTXHVWLQJVSHFLÂżFDSSURSULDWLRQVDW the time that the Annual Operating Budget is adopted.â€?

The million dollars was spent, in my opinion, without appropriateauthorization, in violation of our Town Charter and State Law. There was no Town Meeting; there wasn’t even any discussion by the BOF to make these purchases. That is not how our form of government is supposed to work.

Once again, as we have every year since 2001, New Life Church will be hosting a Community 9/11 Memorial Service on Wed., September 11 at 7pm. The service will include music, video, a special guest speaker, a time to remember those lost in the attacks and a time to honor those who serve to protect us each day. We will also welcome back the South Meriden Volunteer Fire Department Honor Guard and welcome for the first time the Meriden Police Honor Guard who will be joining them. The service will last 45 minutes and refreshments will be served following the event. The 9/11 Service will be held at our Mountain Ridge Campus, 350 High Hill Road. For more information or to

A Salute To Our Great Veterans

Pictured: Am Vets saluting. North Haven: On Wednesday September 4th, a great group of veterans from the Am Vets Post 9 met for a meeting at the North Haven Senior Center, they meet every 1st Wednesday of the month to discuss what they have done to help other veterans and what they will be doing next. They are committed to helping other fellow veterans, when the servicemen and women complete their tour of duty, the Am Vets help WKHP¿OHDFODLPDWWKH9$7KHGHGLFDWLRQH[WHQGVWRRXUOHJLVODWLYHSURFHVVWKH$P9HWVNHHSFORVHWDEV on congressional proposals that affect them and their families. The Am Vets visit hospitals for veterans, work with Scouts, and Special Olypians. They represent veterans from the Global War on Terror, Persian Gulf, Vietnam, Korea, World War II and other wars in between. They are a wonderful group of veterans that deserve our thanks for all the wonderful work they do. The meeting starts off with a prayer by Chaplain Elliot R. Hastings Sr. and then they recite the Pledge of Allegiance, then they start off with the meeting. The Commander sits at the head of the table his name is Ronnie L. Maebry who has served 20 years of duty, also seated is State Commander Albert J. Duff, and past Commander Nick DeSerbo, who fought in World War II is 95 years young and still is active in helping veterans at the West Haven VA Hospital. They are from all branches of the service, they had a lunch of pizza and soda. All veterans are welcomed, if you would like to meet with these great veterans, come the 1st Wednesday of every month at 1:00 at North Haven Senior Center, 189 Pool Rd, North Haven or call Ronnie Maebry at 203-710-2682.

Question & Answer - Dr. Richard Durocher Q: I have recently increased walking and running

and noticed that I am getting blisters on my feet. How can I prevent them and how should they be treated?

A: Blisters are usually produced by friction, and will often result

from shoes that are not broken in yet, wearing worn-out socks and loose shoes. The shearing causes irritation, redness and HYHQWXDOO\VHSDUDWLRQRIWKHVNLQOD\HUVZLWKÃ&#x20AC;XLG7KHVHFDQ become painful and large if not treated early. 7RSUHYHQWEOLVWHUVZHDUVKRHVDQGVRFNVWKDW¿WDSSURSULDWHO\ $YRLGVRFNVWKDWDUHWRR¿EURXVRUORRVH¿WWLQJ.HHSWKHVNLQ lubricated by applying petroleum jelly to the area before activity. Popping blisters is not a good idea, since this could allow infection into the area. Very small blisters (1/4 cm) should not be popped. As a blister gets larger and more painful, it should be de-roofed followed by application of antibiotic ointment or Dr. Richard W. Durocher, cream and a Band-Aid until it is healed. Podiatrist & Surgeon If you repeatedly get blisters, consult the podiatrist for evaluBoard Certified ation. Repeated shearing may be due to the foot functioning improperly in shoe gear. Orthotics may also help adjust the foot Member of the American College and improve its function in shoe gear. Of Foot & Ankle Surgeons Contact Dr. Durocher for further evaluation.
