Everybody is Irish this weekend

Top student speeches Students delivered the following two speeches at North Haven High School’s 2012 senior graduation on June 21. Emily Carroll was valedictorian of the graduating class, while Joe Schwab’s speech was chosen by school staff from numerous studentsubmitted speeches to be read aloud. Emily Carroll As I thought about this speech and what I wanted to say, I looked for inspiration in a variety of places. Surprisingly, one place I found inspiration was in fortune cookies. I began to pay attention to the message inside the cookie, as opposed to just the cookie, and soon realized that many of the fortunes offered guidelines for finding happiness. This being said, there are three fortunes that I believe pertain well to the journey all of us begin today as we move from the known into the unknown. The first fortune reads “Genius is the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple.” The beauty with this fortune is that it redefines “Genius” from someone who is extremely intelligent to someone who can create calm in chaos. With all the distractions we face today, life can get very busy. I hope that each of us can find a balance as we move forward and try to keep life uncomplicated when-

ever possible. Most answers are simple if we can focus on what is most important. Be uncomplicated. Be genius. The second fortune says, “It could be better, but it’s good enough.” It is human nature to strive to be our best; however, we must accept imperfection if we are going to find happiness. This means looking for the good both in situations and in peers. Also, we must allow ourselves to be fallible and admit our mistakes because this is how we better ourselves. So, as you depart into the next chapter of your life, remember that although situations may seem desperate or work may seem impossible, “It could be better, but it’s good enough.” The final fortune declares, “It’s your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude.” To me this is the most important fortune of the three because it suggests that anyone can be successful. No matter what task you face in your future, it is the attitude you have while dealing with the task that helps decide the outcome. Our minds are powerful entities, and if we believe that we can do something, we can override doubt. Whenever a person ventures

By Stefania Ciarleglio Special to the Citizen This weekend is the 50th Annual Connecticut Irish Festival in North Haven at the local fairgrounds. On Saturday and Sunday, people from the area — Irish or otherwise — can take part in cultural events as well as be a part of Irish history. From bands, to traditional dance, the Irish festival seeks to appeal to both adults and children. “Because this year is the 50th anniversary, we wanted to make it family friendly,” said Jim Martens, chairman of the CT Irish Festival. “In addition to the dancing and the music, we have an Irish magician as well as face painting and the obligatory bounce houses.” Magician Debbie O’Carroll’s Irish Magic Show will run twice per day. She blends magical fun and Irish folklore into her act, introducing children to a variety of Irish characters. Children can also enjoy a petting zoo, pony rides and

various games and races. This year, the festival also has opened its arms to those in military service. “This year, we are encouraging active duty military personnel to come, and with their ID they can get in for free,” Martens said. “We have also extended our welcome to the Wounded Warriors Foundation.” Events that will take place at the festival range from a selection of bands and live streaming of athletic games taking place in Ireland, to genealogy sections where fairgoers can identify Irish ancestors. “We are fortunate enough this year to have the NYPD and the FDNY Gaelic Football Teams,” Martens said. “They are going to play an exhibition game at six o’clock on Saturday evening.” Saturday will also feature the th 10 Annual Connecticut Irish Festival 5K Road Race, which is a two-mile fitness walk for both adults and children.

Barbers hope to make the cut at World Series of Poker Father-son team Gerardo (standing) and Claudio Fernicola pose in their familyowned barbershop in town. They won local poker tournaments to earn buy-ins for the World Series of Poker next month. Citizen photo by Sarah Nathan / Record-Journal

By Russell Blair Special to the Citizen

North Haven barbers Gerardo and Claudio Fernicola will head to Las Vegas next month with the hope to come back millionaires. But they won’t be playing blackjack or slot machines — the father and son will be among 7,000 players in the World Series of Poker Main Event. The Wallingford residents who work together at their North Haven barbershop both won their respective local poker groups, earning the $10,000 buy-in for the 10-day, Texas hold

‘em tournament at the Rio Las Vegas. Both have been playing cards for years. “I think I was born with cards in my hands,” said Gerardo, 67. “We grew up playing all kinds of card games.” Claudio, 30, has been playing poker about 15 years. “When I was in high school my friends and I would have tournaments and I never stopped,” he said. At the World Series of Poker Main Event only those who make it to the final 10 percent come away with any winnings. The first players eliminated at that

point earn about twice the buy-in, or $20,000. Half of the Fernicolas’ potential winnings in Las Vegas will go to them and the other half back to the other players in their poker group. The local groups have 12 tournaments and each of the 10 players puts in $100 for each game. The top finishers, this year, Gerardo and Claudio, won $12,000 to cover the buy-in to the Las Vegas tournament. Claudio was leading his group this year when his father clinched his group’s top spot and the trip to Vegas. “I See Poker, page 20

North Haven men among 20 facing gambling charges By Richie Rathsack Special to the Citizen Two North Haven men were among the 20 people, charged in connection with illegal gambling rings in southwestern Connecticut, who have ties to organized crime, federal prosecutors said last week. The defendants include alleged associates of the New York-based Gambino family that a federal indictment says oversaw gambling operations in Fairfield County. The indictment says operators of sports-gambling activities in territory controlled by the Gambino family made “tribute” payments to the family to operate there. “The Fairfield County Organized Crime Task Force, comprised of the FBI, IRSCriminal Investigation, the

Stamford and Bridgeport Police Departments, and the Connecticut State Police, has worked diligently to expose the alleged illegal acts of crime families and their associates and to bring them to justice,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Kimberly K. Mertz in a statement. “Today’s arrests are a reminder that the FBI and its law enforcement partners are out in the streets investigating organized crime 24/7 and working to eliminate its regional impact.” A federal grand jury in New Haven returned the indictment May 8. It was unsealed June 13 after most of the defendants were arrested. The indictment alleges that all of the defendants, with the exception of George Norboe, were involved in a large-scale sports bookmak-

the Greater New Haven area to humanely relinquish orphaned animals for a small donation. The Animal Haven takes pride in matching homeless cats and dogs in permanent loving homes. The Animal Haven is selfsupporting and receives no funds from town of government sources. Funds to operate our shelter come from membership dues, private contributions, entry and adoption donations and many fund raising events.

ing operation in which gamblers placed bets with offshore Internet sports-gambling websites, particularly based in Costa Rica, according to a statement from federal prosecutors. The participants collected and distributed money among bettors locally and sent proceeds to others in the ring, prosecutors said. Federal authorities are seeking forfeiture of about $1.7 million in illegal proceeds, including $174,537 in cash seized in an April 2011 search of the former Stamford residence of Richard “Big Baldy” Uva. Uva was among those indicted, along with Dean “Little Baldy” Depreta, 44, of Stamford. The indictment further alleges that some of the defendants operated three illegal card gam-

bling clubs in Stamford and Hamden. On May 8, a federal grand jury in New Haven returned a 10-count indictment charging the following individuals: Dean Depreta, a.k.a. “The Kid,” “The Guy,” and “Little Baldy,” 44, of Stamford, Richard Uva, a.k.a. “Big Baldy,” 43, of Trumbull, Thomas Uva IV, a.k.a. “Little T,” 30, of Stamford, Douglas Corbin, a.k.a. “Chubby,” and “Fat Doug,” 51, of Stamford, Joseph Borea, a.k.a. “Pizza Joe,” 55, of New Canaan, Michael Vitti, a.k.a. “Peewee,” 32, of Stamford, Silverio Califano, a.k.a. “Sil,” 51, of Stamford, John Liquori, 42, of North Haven, Michael Pepe, 32, of North Haven, Domenico Manchisi, a.k.a.

“Dom,” 64, of Shelton, George Norboe, a.k.a. “Biker George,” 40, of Wallingford, Craig Caffro, a.k.a. “Spanky,” 47, of Pompano Beach, Fla., Daniel Degruttola, a.k.a. “Dannyboy,” 32, of Stamford, Frank Potolicchio, JR., 33, of Norwalk, Victor Amereno, 41 of Stamford, John Colello, 53, of Stamford, Mitchell Engelson, 62, of New York, N.Y., Anthony Santoro, a.k.a. “Skinny,” 48, of Williamsburg, N.Y., Salvatore Ferraioli, 31 of Staten Island, N.Y., and Angelo Antolino, 32, of Port Chester, N.Y.

Safety first for graduation celebration By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen Project Graduation, a town-sponsored celebration for North Haven High School seniors after graduation ceremonies, in 2012 marked 25 years of keeping grads safe with all-night activities. After NHHS graduation wrapped up on June 21, approximately 300 students and chaperones boarded six buses bound for Quassy Amusement Park. Venue officials closed park gates to the public, giving North

ministrator Nancy Leddy, statistics show that the night following graduation is one of the more dangerous in youths’ lives. Seniors may be tempted to celebrate with alcohol or other hazardous, mind-altering substances. “We want to keep them busy, all night,” Leddy said. “We want to reduce the chances of someone doing something that would put them at risk.” Thus, some of the most popular portions of Project Graduation are saved until the end. “At the breakfast raffle, the prizes are indigenous

Haveners exclusive use of rides and amusements. When they returned home in early morning hours, a PTSA-hosted breakfast featured raffles and other giveaways. “This keeps the kids safe and gives them a chance to party as a class, and not be running around party-hopping,” said Project Graduation co-chair Debbie Volain. “This way, there is no alcohol or drugs involved.” According to Project Graduation co-chair and North Haven Youths Services Ad-

to a young person’s college life, like gift cards for Best Buy or Bed, Bath and Beyond, or tabletop fans. We also raffle off cash prizes the entire evening,” Leddy said. “What young person doesn’t want cash? But you must be present to claim your prize. And — wink, wink — we raffle those prizes off last.” “This is a fun time the kids can have without using

alternative substances,” Volain added. Project Graduation is a partnership between the school system, town government and town agencies. Police and fire representatives accompany the teens to Quassy. “This is something that the state police setup 25 years ago with a local parent, See Grad, page 8

Grad Continued from page 3 Anne Clark,” Volain said. “Twenty-five years absolutely gives us a notch on some tree limb or flag pole that allows us to really be able to celebrate the positive response from the community when we do this annually,” said Leddy, who has been involved for 11 years. Attending seniors are allowed to bring one guest, but Leddy said on June 19 that she did not expect many nongraduates on the buses, because of how genuinely close the class was. “This class is extraordinarily close,” she said. “They’re very talented. There are a lot of kids involved in the arts. They really show their talents. And whenever I witness them

sharing their talents, the other seniors really respond to how good their peers are.” “Last week, the class held a campout underneath the flagpole outside the high School,” she continued. “Underneath the American flag they raised a pink flag with ‘2012’ written on it. They did all this the right way. They asked permission.” Volain viewed a quartercentury of Project Graduation in terms of helping prevent students energized about earning diplomas from making poor decisions at house parties. “I’m happy about the safety of the kids,” Volain said. “My own kids went through the program, and I want to continue to be able to offer it to others.”

Letters to the Editor Unconscionable To the editor: We find the recent General Assembly passage of the nearly 600 pages of budget bills to be unconscionable, totally partisan, disrespectful of CT taxpayers and reckless fiscal behavior. Much of what is contained in the bills has not seen the light of public scrutiny through properly conducted hearings and legislative vetting. What human can read, comprehend and judiciously consider the implications of 600 pages of legislative action in such a short amount of time? Sadly, this behavior smacks of the same

hubris and arrogance of recent federal congressional actions. I would ask Governor Malloy to take a nonpartisan position and to demonstrate a reasonable person’s approach to veto these bills. In doing so, force the General Assembly to strip the bills of actions not related to the budget, adhere to proper legislative procedure demanding public airing of significant actions, and provide the taxpayers with the transparent and honorable government we all deserve.

Marijuana for palliative purposes By Eric Cotton Connecticut has enacted a comprehensive and - highly restrictive - medical marijuana law that should allow patients who might be helped by the drug to get it, while preventing the problems experienced by other states. Most of us probably won’t even notice. Officials in Southington, however, are already discussing whether to address the new statute through town zoning regulations. While it might ultimately make sense for cities and towns to regulate marijuana dispensaries, the issue should be considered in the context of the law’s many existing safeguards. In crafting the legislation, lawmakers were careful not to create problems for local government or the average resident. Only a licensed pharmacist can dispense marijuana under the law. Qualifying patients must get written certification from a doctor with whom they have a bona fide medical relationship stating that “the palliative use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks of such use,” and that “the physician has prescribed, or determined it is not in the best interest of the patient to prescribe, prescription drugs to address the (same) symptoms.” Patients must

then take the additional step of registering with the state Department of Consumer Protection providing “sufficient identifying information to establish the personal identity of the qualifying patient and the primary caregiver.” There are only a limited number of conditions for which marijuana can be prescribed, including cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Any petition to add to the current list must be approved by a Board of Physicians, which is established under the law. It’s still illegal for qualifying patients to use marijuana at work, on school grounds, in any public place, in a moving vehicle or in the presence of anyone under 18. Patients cannot keep more than a onemonth supply. The number of dispensaries will be regulated to ensure that it “does not exceed the number appropriate to meet the needs of qualifying patients.” Pharmacists must obtain a separate license to dispense marijuana renewable every two years and subject to health, safety and security requirements. Regulations will also identify “areas of the state where licensed dispensaries may not be located,” according to the law.

Safeguards on production are even more stringent. The license for producers has a nonrefundable application fee of at least $25,000 and must be renewed every five years. That should ease concerns about flyby- night operations. To qualify for a license, a producer must be able “to cultivate pharmaceutical grade marijuana for palliative use in a secure indoor facility” with “adequate control against . . . diversion, theft and loss.” Only between three and 10 producers may be licensed in Connecticut at any time, under the law. It’s clear from reading the statute that lawmakers took great pains to prevent Connecticut from becoming another California or Colorado when it comes to medical marijuana. The legislature deserves credit for that. Whether most cities and towns see fit to pursue further regulations remains to be seen. But hopefully that will be a discussion in good faith and not just an attempt by opponents of medical marijuana to revisit the debate in hopes of defeating the issue at the local level.

Brawn or brains? By Kyle Swartz

Aggressive tackling is essential to success in football. Still, just how violently gridiron competitors can hit each other has rightly become a major topic of debate in recent years in the National Football League. New, appropriate regulations regarding concussions seek to protect players’ long-term health. This comes even before a joint lawsuit filed June 7 by approximately 2,000 former NFLers which alleges that, in decades past, league officials concealed from athletes the extensive risks of repetitive head injuries. Interestingly, not all NFL participants agree with the

lawsuit. Despite knowing full well the inherent dangers, many current and former players have argued that the league should not restrict harder hits. Violence is an integral part of the game. Players on offense commonly attempt to knock away defenders to gain additional ground in games won and loss over a few yards. Moreover, forceful tackling benefits the defense, limiting extra yards after initial hits, creating turnovers and making ball-handlers worry about the next tough blow. And odds are that no ardent NFL fan would be in favor of watching a less-physical product. But evidence has mounted that many professional

footballers will suffer a lifetime of mental-health problems post-retirement. Continual head trauma from countless in-game collisions leaves these men at the mercy of injured brains. Just last month, former all-pro linebacker Junior Seau whose personal life was one of community service, not psychological instability killed himself. Family and medical sources already have blamed recent depression caused by a career’s worth of concussions, injuries he’d simply shake off, then return to the field, rather than taking suitable medical leaves. The larger problem here is that, apparently, nobody was educating Seau and his

peers about the need to convalesce after inner-cranium afflictions. Only in the last few seasons has the NFL mandated that concussed players must miss time. This is a necessary step in the right direction. However, that vital safety changes just occurred in a league originally formed in the 1920s is repugnant. The NFL must contend with an uphill legal battle due to a history of inadequate concussion guidelines. Thus, sport administrators likely will limit violent hits even further. But how soft is too soft? At what point does the product suffer due to additional anti-aggression measures? Either way, this ongoing

NFL issue represents a clear lesson for all area youth sports leagues, football or not. If a young athlete displays concussionlike symptoms, coaches must bench that player immediately, and allow them extended time off. Otherwise, echoing Seau’s mishandling, teamleaders chance allowing another sportsperson to face an uncertain mental-health future due to concussions handled improperly in their past. Kyle Swartz is the editor of the North Haven Citizen and an editorial associate at the Record-Journal, Meriden. This piece originally was published in the RecordJournal.

An Ounce of Prevention

The ‘healthy glow’ of a summer tan By V. Deborah Culligan

What is a tan? A tan is an assault on the skin. Tans result from injury to the skin caused by ultraviolet light rays. As a response to ultraviolet light rays, the skin produces a dark pigment (melanin) that is intended to help protect the skin from this assault of the rays. Many people purposely expose their skin to the sun without sunscreen protection in pursuit of a tan. However, skin damage from the sun is real and can be a primary cause of skin cancer. One form of skin cancer, melanoma, is the most dangerous and fatal type of skin cancer. Tans do not represent health, despite popular beliefs. What is ultraviolet light? There are three types of UV light rays: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVC, although very dangerous, is not a big concern because these rays do not make it to the ground. It is the UVA and UVB that have been linked to skin damage, skin aging and skin cancer. How do sunscreens help? Which one should I buy? Manufacturers of sunscreen products will do all

they can to get you to buy their product. The main factors for you to look for are the SPF (sun protection factor) and whether or not it is a broad spectrum product. The rest of the product is “fluff ” and becomes your preference for perfumes, scents and ease of application. The Food and Drug Administration is trying to make it easier for you to pick a product that will provide you with appropriate protection from sunrays. As of the summer, 2012, a new ruling about sunscreen products takes effect. It defines a new designation, “broad spectrum” which indicates that there is protection from both UVA and UVB rays. You should know that: — “Broad spectrum” products with an SPF of 15 or higher help protect not only against sunburn, but also protect for skin cancer and skin aging when used as directed and with other sun protective measures. Products may make this claim on its label. (If a broad spectrum has an SPF of less than 15, it can only be labeled to protect against sunburn.) — Sunscreens labeled with an SPF only are protective only against sunburn.

— Sunscreens with an SPF of less than 15 and sunscreens that are not broad spectrum, regardless of the SPF, will have to display a warning statement that says “Skin cancer/skin aging alert: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. This product has been shown only to help prevent sunburn, not skin cancer or early skin aging.” — “Waterproof,” “sweatproof ” or “sunblock claims” will no longer be allowed, as these types of claims overstate their effectiveness. — Sunscreens will not be allowed to claim to provide sun protection for more than two hours without reapplication or to claim that the product provides immediate protection unless they provide credible data to the FDA proving this. — If a product wants to claim that it is “water-resistant,” the front label must indicate whether the sunscreen remains effective for 40 minutes or 80 minutes while swim-

ming or sweating, based on standard testing. — Sunscreens that are not water-resistant must include a direction instructing consumers to use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. — All sunscreens must include standard drug facts on the back and/or side of the container. F u t u r e changes under consideration that are being reviewed include limiting the SPF factor on labels to 50+ because there is currently no sufficient data to show that products with SPF values higher than 50 would provide greater protection for users. “When used as directed and with other sun-protective measures.” What does that statement mean? It indicates that sunscreens alone are not guarantees that you will not damage your skin if exposed to the sun. For the most effective protection, you should do the following: — Recognize that sunrays can affect you during all seasons of the year. They can pen-

etrate clouds. They reflect off surfaces like water, cement, sand and snow. — Use sunscreens that are broad spectrum and have SPF values of 15 or higher. — Limit time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun’s rays are strongest. — Wear clothing to cover skin exposed to the sun, including broad-rimmed hats. — Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours. — Use a water-resistant sunscreen when swimming or sweating, with frequent applications. — Check expiration dates. A sunscreen without an expiration date usually has a maximum shelf-life of three years. However, exposures of these products to high temperatures can cause the shelf-life to be shorter. It is also important to protect your eyes from the sun’s rays. Exposure to UV rays may lead to eye problems like cataracts. Long hours without eye protection can result in a short-term condition known as “photokeratitis,” which is reversible sunburn of the See Health, page 24

Public Works sanitation garage planned First Selectman Michael Freda announced that the Department of Public Works and its contractor broke ground on the construction of its new Sanitation Garage. The department was prompted to build a new garage in response to the termination of their 25-plus-year lease on a Grasso Avenue facility, which houses its sanitation and recycling personnel and equipment. The new garage is being built at 110 Elm Street where the Department of Public Works’ Streets and Roads offices, Parks and Vehicle Maintenance personnel, and equipment reside. The new structure will be used to store sanitation and recycling vehicles and aid in the consolidation of the department’s operations personnel overall. The funding for the project totals $710,000. The project was proposed as part of a larger capital bonding package that was approved

through public referendum vote on Jan. 24. Construction of the five thousand square foot structure has been awarded to the Pat Munger Construction Company of Branford through the State’s Capital Region Council of Governments EZIQC bid program. The current construction schedule includes general construction of the structure, associated utilities, retaining wall, paving and associated line striping. The project is expected to conclude on or before August 31, 2012. For more information regarding the plans and progress of the Public Works sanitation garage, call the Department of Public Works at (203) 239-5321, extension 401.

American Legion baseball begins summer season By Ron Brockett Special to the Citizen The North Haven Junior Legion American Legion baseball team of Post 76 started its season with a busy schedule, playing six games in nine days. In their first game of the season, Post 76 faced Guilford in an out-of-zone contest, playing to a 2-2 tie in a game called after nine innings because of darkness. Rich DePalma and Chris Brockett paced North Haven with two hits apiece. Starting pitcher Andrew Iovanna, plus relievers Dominic Fusco and John DeCusati, combined on a onehitter, allowing only two unearned runs. The 76ers then traveled to Branford for their first Zone 2 game of the season, dropping a 9-4 decision to Post 83. DeCusati had a double and two singles and Mike

Donarumo a single as North Haven managed just four hits. North Haven played their home opener last Saturday at DeMayo field and came up short 6-2 against Orange. Terry Giatrelis went the distance on the mound for Post 76, scattering seven hits and striking out five. DeCusati led the offense with a double and a single. Last Sunday, Post 76 hosted Ledyard at Bailey Field in another out-of-zone game, winning that contest 9-3. Starting pitcher Iovanna got the win for North Haven while Mike Kurk paced the hitters with a double and a single. Brockett, Evan Manemeit, DePalma, Donarumo and Mike Siwek all had hits as well. North Haven then played away at Hamden Post 88, winning their first Zone 2 game 8-3. Ryan Harger had

two hits and three RBI and DeCusati added two hits while Giatrelis added an RBI double. After a couple of rainouts, North Haven traveled back to Branford High School to face first-place-and-undefeated Post 83. Terry Giatrelis pitched a gem for Post 76, throwing just 68 pitches in a complete game effort, giving up just four hits. Unfortunately, North Haven couldn’t push a run across and stranded runners on base in six different innings. Branford managed the game’s only run in the bottom of the sixth inning when the leadoff hitter reached on the game’s only error, stole second and scored on a single to right field. North Haven’s record stands at 1-3 in Zone 2 and 23-1 overall.

knew if I held the lead that we would be playing together,” Claudio said. Several weeks later he showed up at his father’s house after his group’s final tournament. “He came here and he told me that he didn’t make it,” Gerardo recalled. “I told him ‘you are the worst liar, you would have never come here at 11:30 p.m. to tell me you didn’t make it.’” Claudio placed 70th out of the 200 players at a recent poker tournament at Foxwoods Casino, which he called a learning experience. “I had never been in a big tournament before,” he said. At the Main Event, players start at noon and play until midnight, with several breaks. Gerardo has never been to

Las Vegas before and is making it a 10-day vacation for him and his wife, Angela, regardless of how he fares. Claudio said he bought a one-way ticket and will return after he’s knocked out. The arrangement of players in the tournament is random, so it’s possible that father and son could be matched up early on. But that’s something that neither wants. “I only want to be with him at the final table,” Claudio said. If the two do face off head-to-head, each thinks that they will emerge victorious. “I’d like to see him in the final to show him who’s the boss,” Gerardo said. The last nine players, the “final table,” head back to Las Vegas in October for a live, nationally- televised event. Last year’s winner, Pius Heinz, won $8.7 million. If he wins, Claudio said he wants to open up a

barber school and stop working seven days a week to spend more time with his wife, Melissa, and four daughters. Gerardo just wants the acknowledgement that comes with such a prestigious victory. “I have a lot of passion for the game,” he said. “To win that (championship) bracelet . . . the recognition means a lot to me.” The Las Vegas tournament attracts professional poker players from all over the world as well as online poker aficionados. Gerardo acknowledges that he and his son are amateurs, but said the game requires a good deal of luck. “The pros have to get the cards just like I do to win,” he said. “It’s still the luck of the cards.” Follow Russell Blair on Twitter @RussellBlairRJ

communities,” said Connex Assistant Vice President of Marketing, Amy Stanton. “There are so many great local organizations that can really benefit from these donations. It’s also a great way to get their groups involved and encourage their members, families and friends. We’re happy to make the donation this time to the North Haven Rotary Club.” Guy Casella, club president, thanked the guests for their donation of over $827, adding, “Since our club’s focus is on service to others, we continually seek the betterment of the community, both locally and globally,

Chiropractor tip of the week Wear supportive footwear when standing. Avoid regularly wearing high-heeled shoes, which can affect the body’s center of gravity and change the alignment of the entire body, negatively affecting back support and posture. When standing for long periods of time, placing a rubber mat on the floor can improve comfort. Tip of the week courtesy of professional chiropractors Maxwell L.S. Mitchell, D.C., and Candice Pollack, D.C., M.S, of APM Chiropractic and Wellness Center, 444b Washington Avenue.

On Sunday, the traditional Feis takes place, in which Irish dancers compete in solo set and others kinds of competitions, allowing them to showcase their talent. This festival serves as an introduction to the Irish culture to many, but also is a way to preserve the customs native to those originating from Ireland. “It’s important because it’s something that is easily lost, easily forgotten,” Martens said. “There are folks here from Ireland and they pass their culture down to their children, but unless we do what we do it’s something that is going to disappear.” The festival runs on Saturday, June 23, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on Sunday, June 24, beginning with an 8:30 a.m. mass, and ends at 7 p.m.

Right and below, photos of scenes from Irish Festivals of years past.

Bridge to remain a one-lane bridge


First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced that, due to a May 18 inspection conducted by the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation, the southbound lane of the Spring Road Bridge over the Muddy River has closed. This portion of the bridge (identified as Bridge No. 03961) was closed due to issues identified by the DOT’s bridge inspection personnel. As a result of several site meetings with the DOT, the Department of Public Works, on June 5, submitted a preliminary application with the state’s Local Bridge Program and formally requested available funding for the much-needed repairs.

At this time it is estimated that the amount needed to replace the bridge deck and superstructure would total approximately $665,000. The allowable grant percentage under the State Local Bridge Project Grant is 30.98 percent or $206,017. The Office of the First Selectman and Department of Public Works weighed the options to temporarily repair the superstructure and restore the bridge to two lanes until final repairs could be undertaken but associated costs were too prohibitive and the option to remain a one-lane thoroughfare seemed the most viable and cost effective option to the town. The estimated schedule at this time includes the calling of a town meeting, hiring of

a design professional, completion of a new bridge design, local and state permitting, coordination with various utilities, advertisement for bids and award of same, and finally, construction of the necessary repairs to the decking and superstructure. The Department of Public Works, through its Engineering Department is committed to restoring the singlespan bridge to its original condition as soon as practical and given the various stages of design, approvals, and construction, it will do all it can to expedite the repairs. For more information on the Spring Road Bridge over the Muddy River, call the Department of Public Works’ Engineering Department at (203) 239-5321, extension 430.


Speeches into the unknown, there is doubt about how one will fit into a new environment. As we leave our high school lives behind, we all will face doubt. However, this doubt does not have to deter us from being our best. If we acknowledge it and look at the new situation as exciting rather than intimidating, we can reach our highest altitude of success. As we take new paths, perhaps some unforeseen, I hope each of you allow yourselves to be uncomplicated, to accept imperfection, and to reach your highest potential. Congratulations, Class of 2012, and may great fortune await you. Joe Schwab Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.” What he means is that it is our job to find our individual paths, not to do what others do, but to create our own ideas and dreams. The next chapter of our lives starts the second we get our diplomas. Most of us are probably nervous about the future and uncertain of what is coming. I’ll admit that I’m scared and hesitant about what to expect next, but I also have a feeling of confidence and calmness because I know I will be okay. I know we will all be okay. Whether we decide to go to college, learn a trade, or take the time to find our passions, just remember everything we were taught, and we will be fine. The skills and life lessons that we have gained here have made us ready to face life’s challenges. The faculty here has given us the tools to become the most successful people possible, and I am truly grateful for that. Today is a day of mixed feelings. There is happiness that the next chapter of our lives is starting, and there is sadness that this chapter is about to end. When I look back on

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, June 22, 2012 Continued from page 1 my days here at North Haven, a smile comes to my face thinking about the friendships we have made, the experiences we have shared that made us better people, and the faculty that challenged us to never to give up. I stand here today, in front of each and every one of my classmates, to congratulate you on your accomplishments. Getting through year after year wasn’t always the easiest thing to do, but we have done it and now the real world is that much closer to us. I will keep North Haven close to my heart, and I will do the same for everyone by whom I was surrounded. I did not get to know everyone here as well as I would have liked, but I truly mean it when I say that I wish the best of luck to everyone in everything you set out to do in your lives. I wish you happiness and success and encourage you to cherish the times that we have had together because they were special ones. It went by too fast. I wish I could have slowed time to take deep breath and look around. Let’s all remember to do that today. Our country is facing some difficult issues, but I look at these problems and I know for a fact that the people sitting here today will make a difference that will be felt all over the world. I am honored to be part of this class where everyone is uniquely talented. I look forward to seeing and hearing what everyone does because I know big things are bound to happen to the people in this class. “To help students become responsible, educated, and productive citizens who can thrive in an everchanging world” is part of our high school mission statement. As I look around, I know it holds true that we have become uniquely talented individuals who will thrive in an everchanging world. The next chapter in our lives has just begun. Are you ready? I know I am. Congratulations! Speeches courtesy of the North Haven High School administration.
