Demolition delay at Lexington Gardens leaves two tanks debris till spring By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Winter weather may delay Lexington Gardens’ full demolition through spring, though only small piles of debris and several underground fuel tanks currently remain. North Haven building official Dave Maiden said that

there are still three tanks on the 500 Middletown Ave. property that must be removed. Maiden said Tuesday that McVac Environmental Services of New Haven would remove one tank by the end of the week, but would most likely be forced to wait until spring weather to remove the other two, due to winter weather freezing

the soil. Property-owner Loretta Mufson specifically hired McVac Environmental Services to remove the tanks after a leak stopped demolition on Dec. 23, according to Maiden. On that date, Billy Brencher, assistant director of field operations for public works, reported leaking of liquids from the site onto Middletown Avenue. “While I was out, I noticed water coming down to Spring Road and I followed it back to Lexington Gardens,” Brencher said. “My main concern was that I didn’t want the water freezing, and

Downsizing the name of the game for Post Office, too By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Pictured left to right are the Health Net Senior Stars program winners: North Haven resident and second place winner, Doryce Blake Coon; first place winner and East Hartford resident, Ernie Recato; and third place winner and Wallingford native, John Ferreira, posing with their trophies at the Health Net Senior Stars championship at Hamden’s Miller Senior Center. Senior Stars is a statewide karaoke competition for seniors modeled after the national singing and talent reality TV shows “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent.” All three winners will have their videotaped performances submitted to the national TV show “America’s Got Talent.”

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is looking to blend the two North Haven post office buildings into one central location on Washington Avenue. USPS real estate specialist Joseph Mulvey spoke at the Jan. 7 Board of Selectmen’s meeting of the USPS’s plans to merge the town’s two post office buildings. “The Postal Service continues to evaluate all our facilities,” Mulvey said. “Both [North Haven facilities] have space in excess of our needs. Both are under leases in privately owned buildings and both lease agreements will be expiring in the not-toodistant future.”

The North Haven United States Postal Service carrier and delivery operations building, located at 10 Middletown Ave., could be merged with the USPS retail and business operation at a new, central location. North Haven’s Postal Service retail and business operations are located at the 74 Washington Ave. property, while the town’s Postal Service carrier and delivery operations are located at 10

Middletown Ave. “We have the opportunity to combine both facilities into one place in a central area in town,” Mulvey said.

Appointments continue to cause controversy at BOS meeting By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

At the Jan. 7 Board of Selectmen’s meeting, First Selectman Michael Freda announced that he had received the resignation of Patricia Brown, a Democrat on the Finance Board, a few days ago. “I’d like to thank Ms. Brown for all her services to the town,” said selectman Steve Fontana. Fontana nominated Democrat William Kohlhepp to

take Brown’s Board of Finance spot. Kohlhepp is a physician assistant and an associate professor of physician assistant studies at Quinnipiac University. According to Freda and Fontana, Kohlhepp has sat on numerous planning and finance boards at Quinnipiac University and St. Raphael’s Healthcare System, and has also served as a volunteer firefighter. Kohlhepp was anonymously approved by the selectmen to serve on the

Board of Finance, taking over a term to finish on Dec. 1, 2011. The selectmen are still receiving resumes for the new ethics board, Freda said, and should be ready to solidify the board next month. Democrat Pamela Sletten was unanimously appointed to a four-year term as an Inland and Wetlands Commission (IWC) alternate, after a lengthy and public debate in past selectmen’s meetings See BOS, page 20

The Reverend Scott Morrow of North Haven Congregational Church (left) and the Reverend Mathew Lincoln St. John’s Episcopal Church have combined the efforts of their parishes to help house homeless men during a week of cold February nights.

The North Haven Congregational Church and St. John’s Episcopal Church will team up to provide nighttime shelter for a dozen homeless New Haven men during the week of Feb. 8, through the Abraham’s Tent program. “This provides an opportunity to have a personal connection to a social problem that otherwise seems like it’s a faraway problem,� said the Reverend Scott Morrow of North Haven Congregational Church. “The reality is that if people from North Haven needed shelter, they would have to go into New Haven to get it.� “Because it’s not in our community, it’s easy to think that it’s faraway and not our

Mulvey added that the USPS would prefer to move into an existing vacant building, rather than constructing a new location or putting an addition on either of their current North Haven locations.

First Selectman Michael Freda, who first mentioned the potential move at last month’s board meeting, said the preferred USPS spots were in the old Washington Avenue Walgreen’s, which is in the Stop and Shop plaza, or across the street near Cricket’s.

Freda added that he and Mulvey are still searching for other potential spots and welcomed any recommendations from residents. During public comment regarding the potential USPS move, the old Stop and Shop headquarters at 153 Washington Ave. was suggested as a location, and Freda said he would look into it.

Resident Gary Amato asked whether the town would incur any costs in the

The proposed merger would not move the USPS retail and business operation far from its current Washington Avenue address. consolidation. Mulvey answered that North Haven would not. Several residents worried that blending both buildings into one structure on Washington Avenue would increase the road’s traffic, especially around its intersection with Route 22, as the carrier and delivery operations would include 28 mail trucks. Other residents said that they did not think the move would worsen traffic, as the trucks would not typically be on the road during busy traffic hours. Any new location would necessitate 100 parking spaces, approximately a quarter of which could be shared

with surrounding businesses, and 6,500 square feet of net interior space, Mulvey said, for a total estimate of 1.5 acres. Mulvey cautioned, however, that the estimate did not include any zoning requirements, and that the properties mentioned were simply the result of a cursory review. When asked about a timeframe, Mulvey said that both buildings’ leases end in two years and the USPS would like to finalize the move before that date. Mulvey added that there would also be allotted time for town residents to air concerns and comments about any proposed USPS moves before a decision is made.

On a cold Saturday afternoon on Jan. 9, a solar energy forum was sponsored by the North Haven Clean Energy Task Force at the North Haven Library Community Room. Nearly 85 people attended the program that included presentations from environmental consultant Bill Colonis from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, business leader Bill Pakulis from the Wellpoint Corporation, solar designer and installer Dave Usdan, several North Haven residents who use solar energy and vendors who provided information and brochures on solar energy. “The task force hosted this forum because we believe solar energy is the wave of the future,” stated Hugh Davis, chairman of the task force. “We also want to inform residents where solar energy fits into the big picture of clean energy.” Colonis gave an overview on solar power and shared his views on the advantages of solar power. He explained that solar energy can be used to heat water, pools, homes and power attic fans. Also, it

Selectmen get reports on personnel, renovations and investigations By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The Jan. 7 Board of Selectmen meeting touched on many topics, including ongoing discussions reported by First Selectman Michale Freda about unused and vacant properties in town. Freda said that he had met with Mickey Rabina to discuss future possible uses of the former Pratt and Whitney site. He said that he had put together a meeting between Rabina and a concrete prefab construction company. “There are negotiations taking place for them to either buy the land or for a

joint-venture,” Freda said, but quickly cautioned, “This is by no means a final destination. I am just trying to create opportunities for North Haven.” Freda said that he has also been meeting with real estate companies who represent other unoccupied properties in North Haven in an effort to fill vacancies. Personnel changes Freda said that former town comptroller Ed Swinkowski would replace Michael Betz as the town’s director of the Finance Department. Freda added that he had hired Valerie Goodkin as his executive assis-

tant, and his other assistant position, listed on the town website as program administrator II, should be filled next week. Freda said that the program administrator II position was downgraded from $40,000 a year to $35,000 a year and had received over 40 applicants. Senior Center renovation update During public comment, resident Irene Salman asked for an update of the senior center renovations. Freda said that there had been some setbacks in reopening the senior center, and that the department of public works was currently helping

the contractor to expedite the completion of the renovation. “I am pushing, pushing, pushing for a date,” Freda said of the reopening. “I am hoping for the project will be complete by Feb. 1, which of course is two weeks after when we thought it would be completed. We can no longer just have dates lapse without getting answers ahead of time.” Investigations and sentencings Resident Gary Amato asked Freda’s opinion in Joseph and Patricia Ierardi’s push for accelerated rehabilitation for charges stemming from their 2007 arrest. “We have to make sure that these people do not get away with this,” Amato said. “A lot of people were hurt through that period. One person killed herself across the street from me. There was a lot of damage done. Accelerated rehab is not the answer to that.” Joseph and Patricia Ierardi, the former director and assistant director of the Department of Community Services, respectively, have received charges including second-degree larceny and tampering with a witness regarding their time in North Haven town hall.

“I met with an attorney on the issue and I was told to be careful about what I say,” Freda said. “But I can say that on behalf of North Haven, we’re opposing accelerated rehabilitation.” Resident Chris Peterson called for public comment at town meetings to be kept short and focused and not argumentative, and asked for an update of the state’s attorney investigation into the building department. “I’m working very carefully with the state’s attorney office and the state building official,” Freda responded. “If anybody wants to come forward with information about the past on this, please come and see me. There are a lot of issues here, including the last two years.” Freda added that he had to be careful about what he said for legal reasons. Amato was worried that Freda had already said too much about the case. “In a previous meeting you said the name of a private citizen,” Amato said. “If this is as deep as rumors in town have it, do you think you have endangered the citizen’s life?” “I will not bring up any

Letters to the Editor True Christmas spirit in retail

blessing to Carol. Bunny O’Brien North Haven

To the editor: I had stopped in Carol’s Creations in North Haven the Saturday after Christmas to exchange a gift. When I found the store closed, I realized the staff was having a well-deserved weekend off. I then went in on the following Monday and told the person waiting on me and also spoke to the owner Carol about how great it was to see how the true spirit of the Christmas season was in the retail business. This was very unusual, instead of seeing how some stores were opening at 5 a.m. the day after Christmas, when the staff had been on their feet for hours and had to contend with some difficult situations. How do they manage to work and do all of their own personal shopping and all that goes with the holidays? As Tiny Tim said, “God bless us, everyone.” A special

Challenges Freda to keep ‘nastiness’ out of meetings

To the editor: Happily the Board of Selectmen’s meetings have been moved back to 7 p.m. which makes it possible for me to attend. Last night I attended my first meeting of the new administration. Mr. Fontana continues to use his years of town and state government experience to our benefit. We have been lucky to have him on the board serving as a selectman. Mr. Doheny is a gentleman who previously has shown his ability to be forthright in his statements. His statements have been accurate, his knowledge of town government firm, and when asked for clarifications which may

Friday, January 15, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen Part 6 After recovering from the shock of seeing Lydia Johnson, I gave her a polite greeting, but I was very concerned about her visit to Kensington Hall. Mrs. Kensington asked me to join them. After pouring me a cup of tea, Mrs. Kensington revealed the reason for Lydia’s visit. “I am in need of a housekeeper who will oversee the other servants, and Mrs. Johnson was highly recommended for the position by my good friend Judith Fairchild. Mrs. Johnson was in the employ of Mr. and Mrs. Fairchild some years ago, and they were pleased with her work,” said Mrs. Kensington. Turning to me, Lydia smiled and then replied, “Mrs. Kensington has made me a generous offer that I have accepted. She has informed me that you are in her employ as Charles’ governess. I look forward to working with you.” Suddenly chills ran down my spine, and I had an uncomfortable feeling about Lydia working at Kensington Hall. I kept my feelings concealed, and for the sake of appearances, I engaged in pleasant conversation with both women as we had our tea. After a short while, Lydia was about to take her leave when we heard the sounds of a scuffle and shouting coming from outside on the terrace. Mrs. Kensington bravely went to investigate the disturbance. She opened the terrace doors and discovered a woman wearing a shawl standing nearby while a man with long black hair tied neatly behind his neck was making his way back towards the terrace. “Who are you? What are you doing on my property?” demanded Mrs. Kensington. “Come inside this instant so you can explain yourselves.” As the couple entered, Lydia Johnson abruptly left the room, and I was surprised to see that it was Jean-Luc and Louise. Upon seeing me, they both gave me a nice greeting. A vexed and curious Mrs. Kensington was astonished that they knew me. “My dear Charity, you are acquainted with this man and this woman who are responsible for making a commotion outside my drawing room? I demand an explanation at once.” After introducing themselves, Jean-Luc was very charming and explained that he and Louise came to Kensington Hall on horseback. When they had arrived, they saw a person wearing a cloak lurking about the mansion. Their curiosity got the best of them so they followed this person, who they found on the terrace spying on whoever was inside. When this person realized that Jean-Luc and Louise were watching him, the stranger tried to attack them before making his escape. To everyone’s surprise, Mrs. Kensington showed little concern about the stranger,

but instead, she rang the bell for one of the servants to bring a fresh pot of tea. Then she graciously invited Jean-Luc and Louise to stay for a visit. I had surmised that she wanted to become acquainted with the mysterious couple while trying to learn about their connection to me and their uninvited arrival to her home. At Winchester Park, an elegant Judith Winchester Fairchild was sitting alone in the library staring at a portrait of her son Ethan. Her train of thought was interrupted when her husband Caleb entered. He was not very tall, but a refined, distinguished, and wellmannered gentleman dressed in a blue coat. “My dear Judith, what seems to be troubling you?” he inquired. “How dare you ask me such a question? If you must know, I am thinking about our son Ethan and his foolish decision to be with that horrid girl Honoria. How could he have fallen under her spell? Has he no respect for his parents or the good name of Fairchild?” ranted an emotional Judith Fairchild. Caleb took his wife’s hand and gently ushered her to the sofa while he tried to comfort her. He told Judith that Ethan had made his decision, and they were powerless to change his mind. He also told her that they should be grateful for her sister Evelyn Winchester’s assistance in watching over Ethan and Honoria. “That is of little comfort to me. My sister promised me that the trip to Philadelphia would have ended Ethan’s attachment to that girl of inferior birth and all would be right again,” said Judith despairingly. “The trip only brought them closer, and now we have lost our only son. I am filled with sorrow and shall die of a broken heart.” As Caleb continued in his attempt to calm his wife, a servant interrupted and announced that there were visitors in the great hall waiting to see them. Caleb instructed the servant to show them in while Judith quickly composed herself. A few moments later Ethan Fairchild entered the room and em-

Letters Continued from page 10 alter his statement somewhat, he does not hesitate to add additional facts or admit that he may need to look into the matter more. The town is lucky to have these two fine gentlemen serve us. As for Mr. Freda, our first selectman, I will reserve judgment to see if he can deliver on all of his promises of great leadership and business acumen. I believe Mr. Freda failed his first test of leadership last night. His reaction to individuals in the crowd laughing at a speaker was distressing. Instead of chastising those who laughed, he encouraged it. He never once said it was an inappropriate and childish thing to do. He instead joined them with some sense of glee. (Just watch the tape of the Jan. 7, 2010, meeting.) These were obviously his supporters, as many were members of the Republican Town Committee. I have had many people come to me in my years in government and ask me questions that should be raised in public forums. These people may even attend those forums, but do not dare speak. They do not do so because of what Freda encouraged last night. I expect he will not let that happen again because all of the people in

this town deserve respect, no matter what their personal beliefs or level of knowledge regarding the town may be. Please do not let the world Joe Ierardi created when he was elected chairman of the Republican Party and encouraged such nasty behavior as acceptable return to this town. Bill Gambardella North Haven

‘Selective memories’ on display To the editor: I couldn’t help but notice the selective memories of people when it suits them or their cause. At the latest selectman’s meeting, someone (I won’t name names) had the temerity to state how the McCarty administration inherited the current situation as it stands with respect to the possible improprieties being investigated in the building/permits department. The inference being, she shouldn’t be held responsible for these alleged misdeeds. Yet, Ms. McCarty’s campaign was built upon the illegal actions of people hired 20 some odd years before Mr. Kopetz took office. Let’s face facts. Had that scandal not surfaced, there probably wouldn’t have been a McCarty administration. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Fred Capozziello North Haven

Fontana asks for funds State Representative Steve Fontana (D-North Haven) called on Governor Rell to release millions in state aid to Connecticut towns for funding local road repairs and paving projects. “Towns all over Connecticut are struggling to maintain the quality of their roads and to protect public safety,” said Representative Fontana. “Since I also serve as North Haven’s third selectman, I know firsthand how important these funds are to help pay for local projects and support local budgets. State government made a commitment to towns like North Haven to provide this needed revenue on a timely basis, and withholding it serves no useful purpose. The governor should quit playing games and release these funds immediately.”

Due to the current budget deficit, the governor has held back $30 million in Town Aid Road (TAR) grants. North Haven’s TAR grant was $181,879 last year. Town Aid Road grants are awarded to all of Connecticut’s 169 municipalities. Towns with sizeable road networks are often awarded the most. Many towns with smaller populations, but with extensive roadways, are dependent on these grants. Towns usually receive TAR funding in January and July each year.

Winter entrance to Peter’s Rock

Pictured at Peter’s Rock winter entrance are: Theresa Marino, Bill Marino, Ann Lombardi, Mike Fletcher, Hugh Davis, Chris Fletcher, and Audrey McClure.

BOS Continued from page 4 about her failure to be reappointed as a regular member of the commission. Republican Steve Miller was unanimously appointed to fill a vacant IWC alternate appointment to expire at the end of 2011. Sletten said that she was happy to be appointed as an Inland and Wetlands Commission alternate and was pleased with the board’s cooperation that led to the compromise. However, Sletten warned against partisanship. “We will be most productive if we work together,” she said. During public comment, resident Bill Leirserson said that he was “disturbed” about Freda’s “slur” against Sletten when the First Selectman had refused to reveal at the Dec. 28 meeting what Inland and Wetlands Commission chairman Mark Trojanowski had said against Sletten. At the Dec.

28 meeting, Freda said that Trojanowski’s opinion helped him in deciding not to reappoint Sletten. “You said that she had a weakness that you didn’t care to discuss,” Leirserson said. “I am calling for you to apologize to Ms. Sletten publicly for your behavior at that meeting and to admit that the process for the Inland and Wetlands Commission didn’t have anything to do with her qualifications but with a matter of your preference.” Freda disagreed with Leirserson, a Democrat and the husband of former First Selectman Janet McCarty, and accused him of being antagonistic. “Your words continue to ring hollow at this board,” Freda responded. “I had a couple of nice discussions with Ms. Sletten, and she had some good ideas what to do for the future of the boards. I think you should apologize to her, because it was you who catapulted Ms. Sletten into the spotlight. I’m not go-

ing to let you get away with your semantics and linguistics. I’m not going to let you twist a subject around.” Leirserson replied that it was “disingenuous” to blame him for Ms. Sletten’s case gaining public notice. Freda asked Leirserson why he had been a “very angry man” and a frequent protestor at recent public meetings. “Your political process, I will not stand for it,” Leirserson said. “You’re collaborative with the people who support you, but if people don’t support you, then it’s no.” Freda claimed that he had acted with bipartisanship in appointing the boards and commissions and had remained mum as the minority selectmen during the McCarty administration’s appointments, which he claimed to be biased. “Two years ago when people were bounced off boards like bouncing balls going down

the street, I didn’t make a big deal,” he said. “This is the third consecutive meeting where you’ve spoken for 10 to 15 minutes on this issue. You have an overshadowed level of anger. I’m not sure where you’re coming from.” Leirserson repeated that he thought Freda was pushing partisan politics. “People are laughing at you,” Freda said, as some members of the crowd had become querulous. “You are not making yourself look good tonight. You are like some people I played football with: you look good running down the field, but you cannot score a touchdown. I want to work collaboratively. You are asserting your political machinations that are polarizing North Haven.” Second selectmen and Republican Tim Doheny also

took offense at Leirserson’s accusation of favoritism in appointing boards and commissions, citing the Inland and Wetlands Commission, of which Leirserson is a member. “It’s well within our rights to put all Republicans on the boards and commissions, but we didn’t do that,” Doheny said. “Your board has three independents, two Democrats and two Republicans.” Leirserson said that he continued to pursue the matter because he was “focused on the issue” and felt strongly about it. Resident Gerry Feinberg accused Freda of employing “governance by innuendo.” Feinberg also alluded to Freda’s Dec. 18 comment that certain grand list members had told him that the Inland and Wetlands Commission was “obstructionist,” which Feinberg worried might have affected Sletten not receiving reappointment. “It is important for you to

Hospitality Continued from page 5 ing. Morrow, who contacted St. John’s about the potential collaboration, heard about the charity opportunity through his church’s participation in Interfaith Cooperative Ministries, a New Haven area-based collection of Christian, Jewish and Islamic houses of worship. The ICM had teamed up with Columbus House to help house homeless New Haven men who have nowhere else to stay through winter nights. “New Haven used to have a policy that when it was freezing outside, no one would be turned away from a shelter,” Morrow said. “New Haven ended that policy last winter because of cutbacks in funding. This year, there were cutbacks in funding again.” In order to help those unable to enter New Haven shelters this winter, the ICM and Columbus House are asking local houses of worship to house a dozen homeless men each night for a week. The ICM members will each take one week during the 12-week program, which begins Jan. 18. Columbus House will select the homeless men, who are intended to remain the same throughout the program. “Columbus House is providing a lot of assistance,” Morrow said. “They want this to be as good of an

reveal who you spoke with,” Feinberg said. “We as North Haven residents deserve to know if any folks have your ear, especially with campaign finance reports due for release.” “I met with over 45 town businesses in April at a business and economy forum,” Freda replied. “A number of different businesses brought up the bureaucratic tendencies of the Inland and Wetlands Commission.” “I feel I have an obligation to listen to both sides, the environmentalism and the business side,” Freda added. “I think I balanced the Inland and Wetlands Commission.” Finally, Freda announced that the board had received the resume of Republican Michael Pepe, after residents protested at an emergency Dec. 28 selectmen meeting that Pepe had been appointed to the Community Services Commission without submitting a resume.

experience as possible for the homeless men and the churches.” The men will rest in Hamden’s Congregation Mishkan Israel synagogue the week after their North Haven stop. North Haven Congregational Church and St. John’s teamed up over a matter of logistics, according to the Reverend Mathew Lincoln, as the churches believed they could not provide ample volunteers and space to shelter the men without a joint effort. Morrow thought the program would benefit the church, the homeless men and the continuing fight against homelessness. “The interesting thing about this project is that it offers the opportunity to meet and host some homeless men here in church, which I think is kind of a natural thing for a church to do, thinking of the fundamental impulses of our faith,” Morrow said. “I also think in order for it to be fully meaningful, you have to connect that opportunity and offer of hospitality with an effort to be advocates in support of more state and local resources going to assist people in the midst of homelessness.” Lincoln also believes that charity toward the neediest comes naturally to religious organizations. “As Christians, we know how important it is to help people struggling at the most basic level,” Lincoln said, “and this is one of those perennial problems that is always in need of

Officer Hunter visits Daisy Troop

Hamden Police Officer Craig Appleby and K-9 Officer “Hunter” made a visit to Daisy Troop 60387, Clintonville School, on Jan. 6, to talk about being a community helper.

volunteers and resources.” Both churches have increased their community assistance efforts since the last year’s economic downturn, and the large response has played a part in the churches’ enthusiasm for participating in the Abraham’s Tent program. “Because we started doing community suppers every Friday night over the last year-and-a-half, I think the parish has become more aware that we can help,” Lincoln said. “Friday nights opened our eyes in a way.” Lincoln believed that Friday night suppers have left St. John’s congregation more eager to take a chance in order to provide aid to the needy, evidenced by their quick decision to embrace Abraham’s Tent. “When our vestry first thought about this, the short answer was ‘yes’ and the long answer was ‘How do we do it?” Lincoln said of Abraham’s Tent. “Whereas before we probably would have said ‘We’re not in a position to help – there are too many hurdles to overcome’.” North Haven Congregational Church has also continued to stress charity amidst the recession. “We do a holiday food drive, and there has been an ongoing demand for that and our pantry during the rest of the year,” Morrow said. “People are clearly aware that there’s a greater demand for food.” Having already found such success in their churches’ recent efforts in aiding the impoverished, both pas-

tors hoped the homeless program would further inspire others to take action against homelessness. “I don’t mean to make light of the budgetary challenges in this difficult economy, but this is really a justice issue,” Morrow said. “We need to stand with these people who are homeless and demand that institutions start working with them and working to move them from homelessness to housing and employment.” Morrow believed that one obstruction in combating homelessness is a negative opinion of the homeless, and Morrow hoped that Abraham’s Tent would break the taboo notion. “I think that one interesting challenge for the volunteers in this program will be to overcome the assumption that there is something that makes homeless people radically different from us,” Morrow said. “I just think that it’s important for us to realize that this is not an innercity problem or a problem that is based on something that is wrong with these people,” Morrow added, “but really an indication of problems in our society, the gaps in what’s available for people to deal with unemployment, as well as issues with healthcare and addiction.” Lincoln was pleased that St. John’s was willing to play a role in the fight against homelessness. “It no longer seems like a problem that somebody else has to do because we never could,” Lincoln said, “but something that we can help with.

Demolition Continued from page 1

I didn’t like the quality of the water.” “It seemed like it had oil in it to me,” Brencher added. “I noticed a guy at Lexington Gardens running an excavator in cleaning out the basement. At the rate that the water was coming out, I was not really quite sure if he hadn’t hit something.” Brencher contacted his boss, Victor Palma, superintendent of public works field operations. “My main concern was the freezing of the roadways,” Palma said. “I wasn’t privy to any oil in the water. I dispatched one of our trucks to take care of the roadways.” Palma said that he contacted Maiden to tell him that water was being pumped into the roadways. “I was told that there had been a possible water main break,” Maiden added. “When I got onto the site, it appeared to originate from the foundation of the old factory building.” Maiden said that as the building department became involved with the leak, further help was sought. “The fire department was called to assess the situation,” Maiden said. “They determined that the water contained some

oil, an undeterminable amount, and the job was shut down at that time.” The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection was also contacted. DEP Emergency Response Coordinator John Aceto inspected the site, Maiden said, and required that an environmental company be hired to remove the remaining liquid from the underground fuel tanks. McVac Environmental Services was brought to clean the liquid and remove the tanks. Aceto could not be reached for comment. A McVac Environmental Services representative declined comment. Maiden said that the DEP allowed the continued demolition of the site on Jan. 6. The few remaining debris piles at the former greenhouse and factory property represent the last materials to be carted off by Mineri Excavating of North Haven and Abcon Environmental Inc. of New Haven. Mineri began the original demolition efforts in July. However, a July 17 inspection by the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Quinnipiac Valley Health District halted the demolition after toxic materials, including asbestos, were discovered on the site. The inspection also deter-

mined that the demolition had been started without prior notification to the DPH and without the payment of a $25 demolition fee. In response, property owner Loretta Mufson hired Abcon Environmental Inc. for the asbestos abatement. “I’m all done there,” said Mark Sergi, director of operations for Abcon Environmental Inc. “The only thing that is left are very little debris piles.” Sergi said that the all the piles of debris had been removed, including piles from demolition that occurred before the July 17 inspection. Such piles could have possibly contained asbestos and other hazardous materials, and their removal was barred until they had been successfully tested. Sergi said that Mineri would finish the demolition work. A Mineri representative could not be reached. Eagle Environmental Inc., of Bristol, was hired to monitor asbestos abatement at the site, according to company representative Chris Liberty. The 500 Middletown Ave. property remains for sale. The 23-acre site had been previously approved for a housing subdivision project, which was ultimately stymied by the housing market’s collapse.

Mrs. Kensington went out onto the terrace where she found an angry Simon Blackwell waiting impatiently for her.

Continued from page 11 braced each of his parents. An overjoyed Judith hugged her son tightly and then looked in the direction of the doorway. Standing in the entrance of the room, was an elegantly dressed Honoria Noble with a lace cap and a shawl wrapped around her shoulders, smiling at Ethan’s parents. Judith stared at the lovely young girl with hatred in her eyes. At Kensington Hall, Mrs. Kensington’s little tea party came to an end when she graciously told Jean-Luc and Louise that it was a pleasure to meet them despite the circumstances, and told them that any friends of mine were friends of hers.
