Referendum polls reduced to one; general elections unchanged By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The winners of the North Haven Senior Center’s First Annual Puzzlemania, standing: Ellen, Sandy. Seated are Linda and Nick.

Puzzle tournament reconnects seniors with beneficial pastime By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen On a cold and overcast March afternoon, a group of friendly puzzle enthusiasts participated in a puzzle tournament held at the Joyce C. Budrow Senior Center. “This is the first time we are doing this program,” said Sue Jung, senior center program coordinator. “We got the idea from the North Haven Library when one of our staff members, Ellen McDonald, and a senior center member Linda Harder went to register for the puzzle contest at the library, but registration was full.” “It was then that Judy Amarone, the center’s director, and I went along with Ellen and Linda’s sug-

gestion that we have a puzzle contest right here at the center,” added Jung. “We pitched the idea and twenty members signed up.” Jung divided the twenty participants into five groups of four, and McDonald and Amarone joined in on the fun. “When I was young, I did not have the patience to sit and do puzzles, but now I appreciate puzzles and enjoy doing them,” said Amarone. “At the end of a work day, when the center is closed, I spend twenty minutes working on a puzzle. It brings a sense of calmness and peace and I’m enjoying this favorite pastime that is loved by many including some of the seniors.” See Puzzle, page 7

To conserve taxpayer dollars and improve school security, town polling locations during referendum votes will be reduced to only the recreational center, according to the North Haven Registrars of Voters Office. Primaries and general elections – local, state, and national – will still operate with all five polling places. But for referendum votes, such as passing or failing municipal budgets, residents will now just visit the rec center, 5 Linsley St. Postcards explaining this modification were mailed out to all North Haven households last week. Some people

have protested. Town officials believe positives of the plan outweigh negatives. According to North Haven Registrars of Voters Laurie Brangi and Patty JacksonMarshall, holding a vote with all five polling places – the rec center plus the four elementary schools – costs $12,000. Running only the Linsley Street location would decrease operational costs, saving $7,000 to $7,500 per referendum. And because referendum decisions tend to have low turnouts, Brangi and Jackson-Marshall said, one facility could suffice instead of spending town money to open all five. During the 2011 budget referendum, only 11 percent of North Haven registered vot-

ers visited polls. The next year, just 6.2 percent turned out for the budget decision. The 2012 referendum on $14 million in bonding brought in only 9.3 percent. Moreover, as polling spots are publicly open within elementary schools during class hours, officials see a potential security risk in that somebody could take advantage of this unimpeded access into a school. Following the attack by an assailant who stormed Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14, enhanced protection of students was on the mind of those behind the change. “It’s always been a safety

NHHS alum’s book spotlights NYC street food By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen A 2000 graduate of North Haven High School has co-authored a new book which provides a taste of Manhattan without the hassle of crowds or traveling into New York. Co-written by third-generation North-Havener Alexandra Penfold, “New York á la Cart: Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple’s Best Food Trucks,” contains over 100 recipes from 46 Manhattan street vendors. She will sign copies of the book on Saturday, April 6, at 1 p.m. at the North Haven Barnes and Noble, 470 Universal Dr. In addition to instructions on how to prepare eclectic dishes, the book also provides colorful background information on the vendors themselves. “My co-author Siobhan

Wallace and I started writing a blog five years ago,, when the food-truck scene started to explode in the city,” said Penfold, who now resides in the Manhattan area and went to college there. “Through the blog, we became friends with all these street vendors, people selling food out of either trucks or carts. This is not necessarily the food you’d get at a restaurant. A lot of it is oral recipes passed down,

some real hometown cooking.” “We asked each vendor about their business, what were their inspirations, strategies, backgrounds,” she added. “Siobhan and I used to work together in the city and we visited all these vendors. So when we got the idea for the book, the vendors already knew us and

Exhibitors explain their work at Q Chamber’s Business Expo By Eric Vo Special to The Citizen

A common scene in the North Haven Holiday Inn on March 21 was people walking from booth to booth at the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo to learn about companies and organizations. A number of booths were set up by institutions and businesses such as MidState Medical Center, Verizon Wireless, TD Bank and the Wallingford Family YMCA. Some exhibitors incorporated a charitable cause with their booth. Verizon Wireless encouraged people to donate $2 to spin a wheel, giving them a chance to win prizes such as phone chargers and cases, with the money going to the March of Dimes. While those who attended the event received free gifts such as key chains, bags and lanyards, they ultimately had

Neighborhood Assistance Act Tax Credit Program Applications for the Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act Tax Credit Program for 2013 are available in the First Selectman’s office or online at the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services The state provides tax credits for business entities which sponsor approved local programs. The programs, which must be proposed and conducted by private non-profit agencies or municipalities, must be approved by the municipality in which they are to be carried out and by the State of Connecticut. If your organization is interested in participating in the program, please complete the application and submit to the First Selectman’s Office, Town of North Haven, 18 Church Street, North Haven, CT 06473 by close of business May 24, 2013.

lectual disabilities. Based in Guilford, the organization has program sites in North Haven, Madison, Westbrook and Branford. One job opportunity the organization put together for the people it serves was at Holo-Krome, a manufacturing company in Wallingford, Lamb said. The organization’s current project is a recycling program, in which members of the community can place plastic bottles and cans into a drop box. Each nickel is eventually turned into “jobs, life skills training and community experiences for the people we serve,” according to the organization’s website. By having a booth at the expo and talking to business owners and the public, Lamb said he is “changing the paradigm of what people (with intellectual disabilities) can do,” he said. The Business Expo also serves as a networking op-

portunity, giving employees the chance to connect with other people. The expos allow people to meet in person, said Doreen DeSarro, business recruiter for Wallingford. “It’s better than just picking up the phone,” DeSarro said. “This allows us to put a face to a name.” DeSarro said the economic development office attends the Business Expo every year because it “showcases what the town has to offer.” But she said she really valued the opportunity to meet and network with other business owners. “You can meet with other people from other businesses and establish relationships,” she said. “We know people here because they attend from year to year.” Eric Vo reports for the Record-Journal.

Puzzle Continued from page 1


Before the tournament, the participants enjoyed lunch consisting of soup, sandwich, coffee and dessert. Then the tables were cleared and Jung, who served as the moderator went over the rules with the participants, passed out the puzzle boxes to each team. The puzzle was called “A Country Scene” by Puzzle Studio. It had 500 pieces. “No one knew what the puzzle was. Once the puzzle boxes were placed on the tables, I instructed everyone to

begin,” Jung said. “The time to complete the puzzle was two and a half hours. The winners would win prizes and those who did not finish had the option of taking the puzzle home.” Each team had its own strategy of putting the puzzle together. One person sorted the colors, another worked on border and end pieces, another worked on matching and fitting pieces, and the fourth team member offered assistance to the other members. “The secret is to work on the edges first and then tack-

le the colors,” said Nick Mastroianni, a senior participant. “I enjoy working on puzzles and I usually work on them alone. My wife Sandra got me involved with the senior center, and today she and I are participating together in the contest. This is our first time as a husband and wife team.” Mastrioianni explained that he enjoys participating in the various programs at the center. Like Mastrioianni, another member Jo-Ann Buccetti enjoys going to the center. Buccetti said, “I like being

with the people who are very friendly. I enjoy listening to their stories and I learn a lot from their wisdom. The seniors, Judy, Sue, and the rest of the staff are like my second family and the center is my second home.” With the success of the center’s first puzzle contest, Jung anticipates to have a puzzle tournament on a weekly basis. Jung is also eager to introduce new programs as well. “I’m looking to introduce new programs that will stimulate, entertain, and inform the seniors. We offer a wide

range of activities that appeal to everyone and I’m always open to suggestions,” said Jung. The puzzle contest brought people together and was helpful for motor skills, memory, concentration, recreation, socialization and teamwork. It was a beneficial revival of a favorite pastime. “I love knitting and crocheting because these hobbies keep my hands and mind busy as I pass the time. I also like puzzles, which I do

Jean Kaas and her late husband always taught their children the importance of planning ahead. And Jean’s family couldn’t be happier that she took her own advice. A West Haven native, Jean moved to Masonicare’s independent living community, Ashlar Village, in 2000. After twelve enjoyable years there, Jean and her family realized she needed a higher level of care. Jean now resides at Masonicare Health Center, where residents with progressed memory loss receive specialized, round-the-clock support. Jean’s daughter Karen says, “My brothers and I are so thankful that Mom is at Masonicare. It’s very comforting to see how much the staff cares about her. They keep her involved in activities and really enjoy her sense of humor. They treat her and us just like family.” Jean’s family also appreciates the full continuum of healthcare services and specialists available on-site. “Thanks to the Masonicare staff and mom’s planning ahead, we don’t have to worry about a thing.”

Maria A. Coppola

Maria A. Cusano Coppola, 80, of North Haven, passed away peacefully on March 23, 2013 at her home sur rounded by her loving family. She was the wife of 58 years to Guido Coppola. Maria was born in Ruviano, Italy on Feb. 6, 1933; daughter of the late Antonio and Nicoletta Melillo Cusano; had worked as a cook for Woolworth’s in Trumbull for many years; enjoyed cooking, canning and taking care of her family. Mother of Salvatore (Maureen) Coppola of North Haven, Anthony (Cheryl) Coppola of Glastonbury; grandmother of Maria (Jon) O’Brien, Gina (Steve) Cohen, Laura (Scott) DeRose, Michael (Amanda) Coppola, T.J., Lindsey and Carly Coppola; great-grandmother of Ryan, Bella, Madison and Abby; sister of Rosalina Coppola of North Haven, Silvia (Pasquale) Coppola, Antonetta (Giulio) Savo all of Shelton, Angelina (Carlo) Coppola of North Haven and the late Pasquale and Vincenzo Cusano; sister-in-law of Maria Cusano of Deltona, Fla. and Erminia Cusano of Southington. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Services were held March 26, 2013 from the North Haven Funeral Home, followed by a mass of Christian burial at St. Therese Church. Entombment followed in the All Saints Mausoleum.

Amanda Cartier

G. Teodosio Sr. of West Haven, and Robert and the late Giselda T. Cartier of West Haven. She is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and a loving boyfriend, John Bonini of Wallingford. Amanda was born on May 24, 1990, and raised in North Haven. She was involved in many extra-curricular activities. She was an altar server with St. Barnabas Church for 11 years; a dancer at Gloria Jean’s Dance Studio for ten; a talented clarinet player and a member of her high school marching band. She was also a stellar student, with accolades that include an induction into the National Honor Society, and CAPT Scholar. She was also a member of the Key Club, VOAG Club, and Future Farmers of America. In 2012, Amanda graduated from The University of Connecticut with degrees in biological science and philosophy. She was a member of the Pre-Dental Society, The UConn Liberal Arts Community, Women in Math, Science, and Engineering, where she coordinated many events, and manager of HuskyTech. She also volunteered with the Mission of Mercy Club, which provided free dental care for those less fortunate. In pursuit of her dream of becoming a dentist, she attended dental classes at Central Connecticut State University while working for Apollonia Dental in Middletown. Amanda also spent many days with her family dentist, Lizbeth Steen DMD, at her Hamden office shadowing her as she moved on to college. Liz was more than a dentist. She was a true family friend and a mentor to Amanda. Amanda was a

very humble, caring, gentle, and affectionate person. She looked forward to spending time with her friends and family, loved gardening as well as being outside, taking hikes, and bird watching. Amanda went on many trips with her family since she was a child, creating cherished memories. While she enjoyed being active, she also found pleasure in quieter activities as well. She was an avid reader and enjoyed time alone with her music and her cat, Ollie. She is a beloved member of the Teodosio, Cartier, and Bonini families. Her gentle smile, contagious laugh, and kind nature will be forever missed. Services were held March 27, 2013 with a mass of Christian burial at St. Barnabas Church, North Haven. Committal services followed in All Saints Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the: Amanda K. Cartier Memorial Scholarship c/o People’s United Bank/Sarah Jayne, 79 Washington Avenue, North Haven, CT 06473.

Lawmakers voice concerns over Malloy’s budget proposal By Andrew Ragali Special to The Citizen

Republican and Democratic state lawmakers from North Haven and throughout the area agree that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed biennial budget will be changed during the legislative process. “We have a long way to go,” said state Rep. Mary Fritz, DWallingford. Fritz said too much money was committed to the state’s

posed adjustments in mid-tolate April, Candelora said the state Senate and House of Representatives begin negotiations with Malloy in hopes of passing a budget before July 1. “This is a very important time for us, especially because it’s a two-year budget,” Fasano said. McKinney said to solve deficit issues spending needs to be cut. “There are avenues here we can spend less and deliver the same services,” he said. House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, said Malloy’s proposal is just the “opening volley of the budget process.” “I understand what they’re doing and I think it’s fine,” Aresimowicz said of McKinney and Republican legislators’ criticism. “They know that it’s going to change drastically.” Aresimowicz acknowledged the Republicans’ concerns about increased funding to ECS. There are concerns about the loss of revenue through motor vehicle taxation for municipalities as well, Aresimowicz said. “I’d admit I don’t know motor vehicle property tax is

tion and social services in Malloy’s proposal. He said that 21 percent of the $20.670 billion in appropriated funds for fiscal year 2013-14 goes to education, with 22 percent going to social services. McKinney said that Malloy’s budget increases general fund spending by $1.8 billion, or 9.6 percent, “during this time when the state faces continued deficits, repeated revenue deterioration, high unemployment and a nagging recession.” Republicans are also unhappy that Malloy’s proposed budget breaks the spending cap by proposing new definitions that move about $900 million in net new spending outside of the spending cap, McKinney said. There is still much work to be done on the budget, said Candelora, who laid out the budget process for the audience. Candelora said after the proposal was released in the first week of February, both the General Assembly’s Appropriations Committee and Finance Committee began taking a closer look. The Appropriations Committee inspects the spending side of the budget, while the Finance Committee reviews the revenue side of the budget, Candelora said. After both committees pass on their pro-

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Costly voting

To the editor: I agree with letter-writer Sherman Katz on the issue of consolidating voting districts. Neighborhood voting is a nice convenience, but costly. The solution to the issue of cost is to abolish the recent policy of automatic referenda and go back to voting at the town meeting, which the town’s charter sets up as our form of government. Automatic referenda are costly and unnecessary. If enough residents want to force a referendum for whatever reason, they should have the complete freedom to do so by acquiring the necessary number of signatures. If there is no need to have a referendum, then taxpayers would not have to foot the bill (thousands of dollars), and the town can move on with its business. Anthony Giordano North Haven

‘They see a goldmine’ To the editor: We have the proposal for 76 apartment units, 23 affordable and 53 at market value, to be rented or sold at Lexington Gardens on Middletown Avenue. With two, three or four bedrooms, they will be capable of housing up to 500 people, plus cars. The infrastructure to support this type of dense apartment development is non-existent in this strictly residential neighborhood, R40 zoned. At the March 4 Planning & Zoning Meeting, Commissioner James Giulietti asked why this area was targeted for this particular zoning amendment, allowing this type of development in an R40 Zone, along a state highway. The attorney for the developer replied, because of Lexington Gardens and the abundance of additional,

available land off Middletown Ave. I guess you know where they are going with that answer. How many more apartments will be built along that stretch of Middletown Avenue if this gets approved? Several hundred, a few thousand? It is apparent that they see a goldmine in our lovely neighborhood and want to exploit it at our expense, for their personal gain. But they can’t get rich if they have to build within our R-40 zoning requirement. The clever part of their proposal was to throw in affordable housing so the state would get involved when we object (which we will) to changing our zone. The increase in taxes to educate several hundred or more pupils, at $9,200.00 per pupil, not counting special education, will be astronomSee Letters, next page

An Ounce of Prevention

An important kind of cleansing By V. Deborah Culligan Google the term “colon cleansing” on the internet and you will get many hits for products that can help with this procedure. These products promote a myriad of health benefits, with a primary focus on detoxification. The advertisements claim colon cleansing (also known as colonic cleansing) can (to cite a few): “remove toxins from blood, organs and digestive systems,” “improve overall health,” “improve elimination of waste materials,” “reduce auto-intoxification (self-poisoning),” “help you breathe more easily,” “give you healthy, soft and younger looking skin, and/or “provide a sense of satisfaction, greater vitality and a desire to adopt a healthy lifestyle.” Or, if you don’t want to take the product, there are also facilities that you can go to and get your colon cleansed through an irrigation process similar to an enema, but more powerful. The primary question is: does your colon need cleansing? Intertwined with the advertisements

for products, you can find some factual information about colon cleansing. The colon is also known as the large intestine. It removes water and electrolytes from digested food and forms stool. Before a medical examination of your colon, known as a colonoscopy, physicians order medications that empty your intestines. (In fact, many will say this is the worst part of a colonoscopy!) This cleansing is done so that the examination of the colon is unhindered by debris in the bowel and allows for a better investigation of the condition of the colon. It is a cleansing done for a purpose. Overall, most reliable health information resources do not believe that you need to cleanse your colon. Although the concept behind this procedure is to “detoxify,” there is little See Cleansing, next page

The country bunny’s wish By Paul Colella

Every year, the staff at North Haven’s Department of Recreation holds an Easter Eggstravaganza that celebrates the holiday Colella and the coming of spring. The event is always well-received and brings joy, creativity and fun for people of all ages. I dedicate this column to Eileen Pettit, Lynne Cole, Jennifer Klein, John Bimonte, Rich Gaudio, Marc Russo, and Andy DelVecchio for making the Eggstravaganza a local, favorite tradition in North Haven. The Easter Bunny comes each Easter Day before sunrise to bring eggs for boys and girls, so we think there

scientific evidence to support that there are confirmed positive health effects from colon cleansing. In the article “Colon cleansing: Is it helpful or harmful?” (Mayo Clinic, May 2012), it is noted that colon cleansing can sometimes be harmful and cause side effects like cramping, bloating, nausea and vomiting. More severe side effects can be dehydration, bowel perforation, an increased risk of infection and/or changes in your electrolytes. It should also be noted that colon cleansing products are not regulated by any government agency, so their composition can’t be verified for content, purity or safety. The human body is pretty good at taking care of itself. The liver and kidneys filter toxins. The intestines naturally eliminate waste material and bacteria. So colon cleansing may not be the solution to your health concerns. If you have concerns

is only one. But this is not so. There are really ten Easter Bunnies, and they must be the ten kindest, swiftest, and wisest bunnies in the whole wide world, because between sunset on Easter Eve and dawn on Easter Morning, they do more work than most rabbits do in an entire year. When one of the Easter Bunnies grows old and can no longer run fast, the old, wise, and kind Grandfather Bunny who lives at the Palace of Easter Eggs call the bunnies together from all over the world to select the very best one to take the place. Often a mother bunny says to her child, “Now if you learn to be wise, kind, and fast, some day you may grow up to be chosen one of the Easter Bunnies.” And all of the babies try their very best, so that they can grow up and go to work for the

Grandfather Bunny. One day, a little countrygirl bunny with brown fur and a little cotton ball of a tail said, “Some day I shall grow up to be an Easter Bunny. Just you wait and see!” When all of the big white bunnies and jack rabbits with long legs who can run so fast heard this, they all laughed at the little country bunny and told her to go eat a carrot. But she held her head up high and said, “Just you wait and see!” The little country bunny grew up to be a fine young lady Cottontail. She and her husband, to their surprise, had twenty-one Cottontail babies to take care of. Cottontail dedicated the next several years taking care of her baby bunnies. Cottontail taught her little ones manners, responsibility, respect, and kindness. She also gave them chores to do around the house.

about your bowel movements or other intestinal issues, you should consult your healthcare provider. If you are concerned about your health, a most important action you can take is to get screened for colon cancer if you are over age 50. The Centers for Disease Control states that colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best. Screening for colon cancer saves lives. This action is more important to your health than cleaning your colon. Some people may need screening earlier than age 50 (or more frequent). This group includes those who have or have a close relative who has had colorectal polyps or colorectal cancer; those with inflammatory bowel disease and those with a genetic syn-

drome such as familial adenomatous polyposis. In addition to screenings, the CDC reports that some studies suggest that people may reduce their risk of developing colorectal cancer by increasing physical activity, eating fruits and vegetables, limiting Alcohol consumption and avoiding tobacco. Scientific evidence does not support the benefits of colon cleansing, but screening for colon cancer does have documented data about lives saved. Quinnipiack Valley Health District residents can get reprints of articles about colon cleansing, along with information about colon cancer, by calling the QVHD at (203) 248-4528 or through request online at An Ounce of Prevention is a weekly publication of the Quinnipiac Valley Health District, which is located at 1151 Hartford Turnpike, North Haven. An Ounce of Prevention is written by QVHD Deputy Director V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH.

Then one day, when the little rabbits were half grown up, Cottontail heard talk among the other rabbits that one of the ten Easter Bunnies had grown too slow and was stepping down from his position, so the Grandfather Bunny invited all the adult bunnies to his palace so that he could select a replacement before Easter. Upon hearing the news, Cottontail and her bunnies, along with many white rabbits and jack rabbits, went to see the Grandfather Bunny. When they arrived at the Palace of Easter Eggs, there were bunnies everywhere on the great lawn. The kind Grandfather stood in the doorway of the palace and told the bunnies that were hoping to be the chosen Easter Bunny to show him their pretty white fur, how fast they were, and how clever they were. After watching for some time, the Grandfather complimented all the bunnies on their appearances, speed, and cleverness, but then he decided to test their kindness. He told them about a little girl who was very sick and lived far away. “The journey to this little one’s home is treacherous. You can travel only by foot,

and you must climb several mountains and cross a raging river. It’s not an impossible trip, but a very tedious and difficult one. Who is willing to make this trip?” he asked. None of the white rabbits or jack rabbits came forward, but Cottontail pushed through the crowd and offered to go. She expressed the importance of doing kindness, and now she had the chance to help someone in need. Since no one else came forward, the Grandfather, with some reservations, gave her an Easter basket filled with colorful eggs and treats, and then sent Cottontail on her way. After making the long and tiresome journey through pastures, forests, mountains, and a river, she made it to the little girl’s cottage. She squeezed through the crack of the door that had been left opened just in case the bunny had come all that way. In the hand of the sleeping little girl, she placed an egg, and then filled an Easter basket on a table near the child’s bed. Then, just as the Easter Morning sun rose over the

To the editor: I attended the Local Authors Showcase & Symposium at the North Haven Library on March 23. I found it entertaining and very informative. I would like to thank Paul Collela, Mollie D’Andrea, Claire Criscuolo, Jarita Davis, Ann Lombardi, Steven Darley, Bethany Roberts, Michael Draper and Alexandra Penfold for showcasing their talents. Hopefully, this will become an annual event. I think that this community is very fortunate having this level of talent in our midst. Irene M. Salman North Haven

Chiropractor tip of the week



Inflammation has been on the news a lot lately for its role in chronic disease. Some ways to decrease inflammation include: avoiding white sugar and white flower, read labels at grocery store and avoid anything that contains “hydrogenated or “partially hydrogenated” ingredients, use extra virgin olive oil, consume fruits and vegetables reflecting all colors of the rainbow and stay away from pre-packaged meals. Tip of the week courtesy of chiropractors Maxwell L.S. Mitchell, D.C., and Candice Pollack, D.C., M.S, of APM Chiropractic and Wellness Center, 444b Washington Avenue.

Mathematical, culinary celebrations on Pi Day

Young writers

Family By Antonio Grestini

By Mary Ann Hardy Special to The Citizen

Family is always there for you. Family loves you no matter what. Family cares about you. Family has been with you since you were born. Family keeps you safe. Family knows what is best. Most important, family will always love you, with all their heart.

North Haven High School recently celebrated its sixth annual Pi Day. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world. Pi is the Greek symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in month/day date format), since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits of Pi in the decimal form. The earliest known official

or large-scale celebration of Pi Day was organized by Larry Shaw in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where Shaw worked as a physicist, with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies. The Exploratorium continues to hold Pi Day celebrations. On March 12, 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution (HRES 224), recognizing March 14, 2009, as National Pi Day. Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits. Pi Day at North Haven High School is sponsored by Mu Alpha Theta, the math honor society. Most Pi Day activities took place on Friday, March 15, as the actual Pi Day was a CAPT testing day. Activities included a Pi

Memorization contest, a Pi(e) Baking Contest, and a Pi Table during the lunch waves in the cafeteria offering face painting and “minimemorization” to earn a pi pencil. The school halls were also decorated for Pi Day and students wore custom-made Pi shirts. Over 60 students and adults wore their “mint green tie-dye” hand-designed shirts. Fifteen pi digit memorizers competed in the auditorium at 11 a.m. The top three memorizers: Kayla Gomez, first place, who committed to memory 236 digits; second

place, Talia Gallagher, with 199 digits memorized; and third place went to Kayla Bellam, who sang her 192 digits to her own melody, which complemented the beauty of the numbers she was reciting. There were also 22 pies submitted to the Pi(e) baking contest. The judges had a hard time choosing amongst a delicious and unique selection of pies that ranged from classic apple pies to ice-cream pie to broccoli, cheese and bacon pie.

But then they clarified that this is just for referendums, and I was happy.” “The majority of the feedback I’ve been getting has been people in support of it,” he added. “In any leadership position, you want to be able to give people opportunity to come forward with suggestions, especially when they’re cost-saving suggestions. And I wanted to give them the opportunity to put their idea in motion and see how it goes. Patty and Laurie, they’re experts in this.”

North Haven Democratic Town Committee Chairman Walt Spader is in favor of the change. “I think it makes sense,” he said. “It saves a lot of money. Elections cost a lot of money to run. And look at the recent turnout numbers. And, in this way, we wouldn’t have people going into schools when schools are in session.” “I think the rec center is the perfect location, because it’s centrally located and it’s not a school,” Spader added. “We’ve got the resources to go for this. The registrars are doing what people should expect of them. And for those reasons, I think this is a positive step.” Brangi and Jackson-Marshall will present the change and take public questions at the April 4 Board of Selectmen meeting.

Fritz also doesn’t agree with the elimination of the motor vehicle tax. Aresimowicz hopes that in altering Malloy’s budget committees will “stick to the same priorities” of what the governor originally proposed. “I hope everybody puts their thinking caps on,” Fritz said, “so we can get this done.” Andrew Ragali is a reporter for the Record-Journal.

Recipes in the book include drinks, snacks, appetizers, dinner, fast-food, vegetarian, and touch on all culinary backgrounds, with diverse dishes like Taiwanese Pork Dumplings, chimichurri, frozen mint juleps and “Salty Pimp Sundaes.” “This has something in it for everybody,” Penfold said. “This is a great way to learn new dishes and try new foods.” In terms of toughness to make, recipes are labeled as either easy, medium or challenging, from the more-simply reproduced mint juleps to the challenge of home-made tamales. Certain recipes also feature modified forms moreappropriate for home kitchens. “One great thing about the

Not everybody has time to do that, to hunt down trucks and then wait two hours in line to wait for a sandwhich.” Giving people an easily accessible taste of Manhattan street-vendor food was always the motivation behind the book. “In 2010, Siobhan was snowed in in Kansas one day,” Penfold recalled. “She sent me a text saying that she wished that she could have

Student contest Energize Connecticut, in partnership with Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating, has scheduled the ninth annual eesmarts contest for students in grades K-12. The eesmarts program is a K-12 energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy education initiative that annually invites Connecticut students to showcase their “energy smarts” about saving energy, efficient and renewable energy technologies, and sustainability through various media forms. Students answer grade-level specific prompts regarding energy efficient and renewable energy technologies and sustainability in the form of a poster, limerick, news article, song lyrics, persuasive essay, public service announcement script, speech and a small business proposal for energy efficiency. New to the contest this year is the “Power of Change” award category for grades 9 to 11, which asks students to propose a community-based project plan to address an energy-related issue. The eesmarts program partnered with three Connecticut-based foundations — the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, Hampshire Foundation, and the Common Sense Fund — to identify three winners in this category to receive funding to make their communitybased project a reality. The three foundations will together provide grants of $1,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place. The eesmarts program will match the foundations’ awards in this category. Other prizes will also be awarded. Finalists for each grade level will be honored at an awards ceremony in June at the State Capitol. The contest is open to all students in Connecticut. Deadline for entries is April 26.
