Candidates for first selectman, left to right: independent Gary Amato, Republican incumbent Michael Freda See Debate, page 5 and Democrat Walter Spader.

Remember When: Family keepsakes and moments in time

Personal keepsakes, family photographs and moments in time are special treasures that connect relatives to the precious memories and time spent with loved ones past and present. For lifelong resident Gary Amato, an old trunk and family pictures remind him of special people who played a significant role in his life. This is his story: “I was born in 1958 and lived on Maple Avenue in

U.S. Postal Service officials say town will retain post office, not postmaster By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Candidates running for election as North Haven First Selectman offered different opinions on financial topics during the 2011 Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce debate. Held in a conference room at Washington’s Holiday Inn on Oct. 21, the debate included incumbent Republican First Selectman Michael Freda, Democratic challenger Walter Spade and independent hopeful Gary Amato.

town,” Amato recalled. “Sometime later my parents William and Wanda moved the family to Pool Road, where I currently reside with my mother. During the 1960’s and early 70’s, my brother William and I enjoyed playing outside with our friends from the neighborhood.” “We rode our bikes, played baseball, took long walks and went hiking up Sleeping Giant in Hamden, sat on the front porch eating ice-cream during the summer, and

building snowmen and having snowball fights in the See Remember, page 6

Despite what residents may have believed based on a potentially confusing mailer, no U.S. Postal Service (USPS) locations in North Haven are expected to be discounted, according to USPS officials. Instead, what is being proposed by USPS officials is for the town’s post office to become classified as a New Haven branch. Concerned about a recent mailer which stated that USPS would conduct a “discontinuance feasibility study” about North Haven mail services, residents packed the recreation center gymnasium on Oct. 25 for a public forum with USPS representatives. “For all intents and purposes, you will not notice a

change,” Joseph Mazzola, a USPS state manager of post office operations, told the audience. “The letter was not necessarily correct.” Confusion seemed to stem from the letter’s inclusion of the word “discontinuance.” Mazzola said the term did not reflect USPS intentions for North Haven, but was included because the letter originated from headquarters and was disseminated nationally to thousands of municipalities as part of a country-wide restructuring project. “We’re not just doing this in North Haven,” he said, “we’re doing this coast-to-coast.” Coupled with a recessionary economy, shifts in See Postal, page 8

Tough loss, but still looking good at 5-1

Reader’s Poll Last week’s poll question: Right now, who would get your vote for North Haven First Selectman? Of 65 voters, 60 percent answered “Incumbent Republican Michael Freda,” 8 percent answered “Democratic challenger Walter Spader,” 25 percent answered “Independent challenger Gary Amato” and 8 percent answered “none.” Poll question for this week: What does North Haven need most from its next First Selectman?

League of Women Voters highlights voting requirements

The League of Women Voters of Connecticut assures state residents that there will be no new changes in requirements for voting in the elections to be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8. As before, a registered voter will have to show identification or sign an affidavit. Acceptable pollingplace identification can be: a driver’s license, a non-driver DMV photo ID a Social Security card or any other “preprinted form of identification,” with either your name and address, or name and signature, or name and photo. For any voter who fails to bring identification, an affidavit form issued by the secretary of the state will be available at the polling place and must be counter-

signed by an assistant registrar of voters at that poll. For more information, visit the LWVCT website at lwvct.org, or call (203) 2887996.

I also spent time on the streets while struggling to survive some hard times,” Henninger said sincerely. “I came from nothing and now my life is good so I enjoy reaching out to people less fortunate.

For cancer survivor and long-time resident Debi Killer-Henninger, working tirelessly to find a cure for breast cancer and helping those in need has been a lifetime commitment of turning negatives into positives. “Life is too short, so we have to appreciate all our blessings (small or large) and the special people in our lives,” Henninger said. “It is my mission to do good by turning negatives into positives and tragedy into triumph.” “October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year the organization called Connecticut Women Looking for a Cure and I have turned North Haven pink by putting up pink ribbons throughout town,” she added. Henninger has been involved with the organization for four years and she and her Connecticut Women Sisters (members of the group) believe that everyone should be aware of breast cancer and women should get a mammogram regularly be-

I am a three-time cancer survivor and I have battled breast cancer so I empathize and feel for all those who have had it and those who are currently dealing with it,” siad Henninger. “The treatments are grueling and many times the patients get depressed and want to give up, but they must stay positive, never give up, hit it head-on, and surround themselves with a support system of family and friends who are very crucial for recovery.” Henninger was grateful for her family and friends who rallied by her side when she was battling cancer. Since her recovery, she has made a commitment to fight cancer by raising awareness of the disease, giving support to others, and getting involved in other causes in town and

Breast cancer rally: ‘We may be doing something right’ By Robert Cyr Guest to the Citizen

Patty McKnight was diagnosed with cancer in one breast in November, but chose to “play it safe.” She had both breasts removed in a 17hour surgery in January. The 50-yearold McKnight is a North Haven resident who owns the McDonald’s franchise in town. She said she could understand how a woman who may have lost a job or health insurance might not be thinking about the risk of getting breast cancer.

“Thinking about that would definitely fall by the wayside,” she said. Because her cancer was detected and treated early enough, McKnight did not have to have radiation or chemotherapy. “I was lucky to have caught it early during a mammogram, but I know it can be different for other people,” she said. “I certainly never expected to be a candidate.” McKnight was among those who spoke during a breast cancer awareness rally Oct. 5 at BJ’s Wholesale Club in Wallingford. Connecticut is second highest nationally when it comes to the incidence of breast cancer, but that is likely due to more screening and reporting, said Anees B. Chagpar, director of the Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Yale Breast Center at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Slightly more than 84 percent of Connecticut women

ness rally. “It could be a good thing if we’re doing more screening, we’re picking up more cancers and if it’s early on, that’s the best time to treat that,” she said. “If it’s caught early, breast cancer has a 98 percent five-year survival rate.” While the number of reported cases was up in Connecticut, the mortality rate was down, she said. Connecticut ranks 35th in the nation in breast cancer mortality. There were 2,920 new breast cancer cases diagnosed in 2008, with 490 women dying from the disease that year, according to a Komen Connecticut report. Komen representative Carrie Titolo said the report was compiled to target economi-

cally depressed communities and help identify areas that could benefit from the group’s grant program, which gives money to nonprofit organizations for cancer screening. The release of the report was timed to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and local health departments and hospitals are trying to spread the message about the importance of early detection, she said. “We would like more women to get screened to find their cancers earlier,” Titolo said. “There isn’t much we can do about incidence; what we’re really concerned with is mortality and late-stage diagnosis.” Connecticut municipalities with high mortality rates include North Haven, Wallingford, Cheshire, Bloomfield, Branford, Farmington, Glastonbury, Hamden, Naugatuck, New Haven, Norwalk, Shelton, Stonington, Vernon, Westport and Windsor. The report also shows that black women in urban centers and Hispanic women in manufacturing areas are the least likely to undergo mammography screening. Wallingford resident Dorothy Elkin, now 75, was 54 years old when she found a lump in her breast while taking a shower. She called her doctor at MidState Medical Center and a lump was found that a mammogram had missed a year earlier, she said.

said, and in the spring expected medical staff to begin moving into Devine Street quarters. Again, Spader mentioned state-level efforts. “A lot of this has to do with state legislation,” he replied. “What really affects businesses is the cost of energy and taxation. The First Selectman has to be part of those decisions with state legislation. Locally, we can maintain reason-

and myself working with CEOs and business leaders, we’re already actively involved in trying to bring businesses in.” Spader responded, “I’m just not sure that the economic development coordinator is the right plan. That’s one of the jobs of the First Selectman.” Next, Mansfield asked what each debater would do to create local jobs. Freda said he was already creating new positions. “On Universal Drive, we’ve put about eight new businesses there,” he responded. He was also working with realtors and potential clients to populate buildings at Sackett Point Road and State Street, he

The moderator, Wallingford businesswoman Christine Mansfield, first asked each candidate to name drivers which could stimulate revenue in light of declining state and federal funds. “Focusing in on small businesses,” Freda replied, “Creating synergies between the small businesses.” October’s town-produced “Show and Sell” expo was held for such reason, he added. Moreover, Freda said that he would continue to network and build relationships within the greater business community, such as continuing efforts on the Rabina and Yale-New Haven Hospital projects and deciding how to best incorporate Quinnipiac University’s new Washington Avenue medical school into area commerce. Spader’s response focused on capturing state and federal finances. “The key is getting our fair share of state funding,” he said. “In particular, I would work with legislators to change the Education Cost Sharing formula.” Amato believed that savings could be met by reductions in spending. “I am the only one up here who is in favor of holding off on the proposed $14 million capital bonding package,” he said. “Our bonds are coming down soon, and that could give all the businesses a break. We all need a break.” Completion of North Haven’s Valley Service Road extension, too, could repre-

sent opportunity, according to Amato. “That’s one of the key factors in this whole area for piecing together Hamden and North Haven, and North Haven and North Haven,” he said. Amato also suggested creation of a full-time town economic developer. “That would cost the taxpayers money, but you need to spend money to make money,” he said. Freda and Spader disagreed. “I don’t think you need to spend the $100,000 necessary for that position,” Freda said. “Between our Economic Development Committee chairman Rich Lopresti, the other seven members of that committee

winter,” he added. “We did not have a choice because our parents made us go outside so the outdoors became our playground.” Amato explained that spending time outside as a child gave him the opportunity to commune with nature, and even today he enjoys working and relaxing outdoors. He attended the North Haven Public School System and, after graduation, he worked in heavy road construction for many years, then worked for Industrial Investigations in the corporate realm, and currently owns and operates a lawn service. “I have experienced the workforce from the big and small business aspect. I certainly understand the plight of the small business owner especially in this difficult economy,” added Amato. “My father William worked for a company called D. V. Frione and Foxon Concrete Company, and he was involved with the teamsters. My mother

Amato also worked outside the home in an effort to contribute to household expenses. Both my parents had great work ethics and worked hard to provide for my brother and me while teaching us the value of a dollar.” Amato continued, “There was a lot of love, laughter, and good times in our home, and we never went to bed hungry or mad at one another. My father had a tough and hard look on his face but he was a kind and sweet man with a gentle disposition and

a heart of gold.” Amato recalled that on many occasions his father would do favors for friends, relatives and neighbors without looking for anything in return. His father was also very forgiving and he never held a grudge. He was described by many, Amato said, as someone who would give his shirt off his back to help someone. “During the autumn season, we as a neighborhood would burn leaves and then gather for a neighborhood party where every one was invited. We all got along, looked out for each other, and we had some great times together as one big family,” said a smiling Amato. “Our gatherings reminded me of the innocence, tranquility and harmony of a small town and it felt so real and so nice.” When not playing outdoors with friends and neighbors, Amato would spend time visiting his relatives and one of his favorite pastimes was watching The Andy Griffith Show. Amato believed that it was that particular program and his upbringing that shaped and taught him and

deaths hit him hard. Today, Amato divides his time between work, helping others, rescuing animals and caring for his mother. “I am an old-fashioned guy who likes antiques, family keepsakes, and photographs,” he said. “I have an old trunk that my father’s parents brought with them when they came to America from Italy during the 1920’s. It is displayed in the den and on the trunk I have a picture of my father William and a picture of my cousin Patricia.” Amato added, “When I look at Pop’s and Tricia’s pictures, and my grandparents’ old trunk, I am reminded how important family and time are, and we can never replace them. The memories keep me going but I miss them and they are always in my heart.” Life will fade, people will come and go, good times will not last forever and hard times will try our spirits, but the memories remain.

his generation morals and values, and the appreciation for family. Unfortunately, good times do not last forever. When Amato was in his twenties, tragedy struck the family. Amato can still recall that Monday morning at nine o’clock when he received a call from his mother’s friend to go to Yale-New Haven Hospital. “When I arrived at the hospital, I found my mother crying and the doctor told me that my father had died from a heart attack. My father was everything to me. He was a good man, husband and father who hugged his children. I would sing the song “Oh, My Papa” to him,” added a tearful Amato. “My father’s death made me realize that life is very precious and we must not waste a minute. Be good to people when they are alive and cherish the time spent while making beautiful memories.” Shortly after his father’s death, Amato experienced the loss of his cousin Patricia Coyle from Wallingford who died on Flight 103 over Lockerbee, Scotland in 1988.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, October 28, 2011

Postal Continued from page 1 personal communication away from physical mail to email and other electronic devices have taken a massive financial toll on the USPS. Jodi Heslin, another USPS Connecticut manager of post office operations present at the forum, stated some grim national statistics: in 2011, there have been 43.1 billion less items sent via physical mail and 200 million fewer visits to post offices.

Across America, USPS locations and services must be scaled back. “We’re facing $8 billion — billion, with a ‘b’ — in losses this year alone,” Mazzola said. However, North Haven will not incur such major reductions, according to Mazzola. The town zip code will not change. No alterations will occur in town USPS retail services or staff size, except that North Haven will no longer have an official postmaster. Because the town’s post office would become an

affiliate to New Haven, the city’s postmaster will now fulfill such role for North Haven. “I’ve heard it all the time on the floor in post offices: there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians,” Mazzola said. “Here is an opportunity for us to get rid of a chief and absorb the costs. This is instant savings with no impact to the community.” Many people had come Tuesday night to defend their local post office, after receiving the mailer and an accompanying survey about how people use town USPS services. “That letter really struck a nerve,” third selectman Steve Fontana told the panel of four USPS representatives at the Oct. 25 meeting, “and that was because the letter was poorly written.” “As someone who uses the post office on a regular basis, I think we have a great staff in North Haven and I’d love to see it stay the way it is,” he added. Still under consideration is integrating North Haven’s two USPS locations into one building. “We’re still trying to find a place to merge those two buildings,” Mazzola said. “That’s a study which is continuing.”

Annual Holiday Sale!

After numerous public comment speakers expressed concern that lack of a North Haven postmaster would necessitate that they drive to New Haven to have mail concerns answered by a postmaster, Mazzola said that a station manager could work in North Haven to handle such issues. “I’ve been to many of these meetings and I wish I could come to more of these and say these things,” Mazzola said. “There are many communities where we are going to discontinue services. But nobody here is going to have to travel a greater distance for mail services. Nobody is going to notice anything different. The only difference is that there won’t be a postmaster in North Haven, because that will just be administered out of New Haven.”

“I was at first, of course, terrified because the word cancer meant death,” she said. “After the initial shock, I said I have to fight this. I’m going to live. By learning I had caught it early before it completely spread, that was the best thing I could have done for myself. I’m very outspoken about having people check themselves.” Elkin, now cancer-free, underwent a lumpectomy, five weeks of radiation therapy and six months of chemotherapy. When the cancer came up again in 1990, she underwent a mastectomy. Shortly after, she joined a local support group for breast cancer survivors called “Bosom Buddies” that still meets at the hospital once a month. “There’s always that person-to-person support we give each other, even for people who have been survivors for as long as I have,” she said. “For the newly diagnosed, it helps them to see we’re still around and kicking.” MidState Medical Center, with radiology centers in Meriden, Wallingford and Cheshire, has provided 12,500 mammograms since last October, down a bit from the previous year, said hospital spokeswoman Pamela Cretella. “We suspect it’s related to the economy, and people losing their jobs and health insurance,” she said. While Komen’s goal is to provide free clinics for people who may have lost their health insurance, Chagpar said there remains a large disparity between those who are aware of the dangers of breast cancer and those who, for whatever reason, are not. “They either lack awareness or lack resources, or simply don’t have either the ability or aptitude or fortitude to get checked out,” she said. “That speaks to our demographic, and having a very large span between the wealthiest people in Connecticut and the poorest people in Connecticut.” Robert Cyr reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden.

Pink Continued from page 3 serving in Afghanistan. Perillo is serving his country by making the world safe while risking his own life. Both mother and son are fighters battling dangerous forces — cancer and terrorism. “I am proud of my son Al and all the men and women serving in our armed services who are making an ultimate sacrifice to save lives. Besides being active in Connecticut Women Looking for a Cure, for the past two years I have been part of an organization called The Clubhouse, which is located on Elm Street in North Haven,” Henninger said. “Every October, we have a ‘Pink Wig Run,’ which is a motorcycle run through town.” “We start at the clubhouse, ride through town, and return to the clubhouse,” she added. Henninger added that “The Pink Wig Run” is wellattended and a great source for getting the message out to the community about breast cancer. The participants (both men and women) wear

pink wigs and some wear pink outfits. Henninger chose the color pink because that is her favorite color, and oddle enough, pink represents beauty and friendship. Henninger and her organization are thankful for the support and assistance of First Selectman Michael Freda, the North Haven Police Department and Police Chief Thomas McLoughlin, and all the citizens of North Haven and the state. Henninger and friends are also involved in other charitable endeavors, including sending care packages to the troops overseas, collecting toys for Connecticut children, and running coat and clothing drives. Their kindness and good work brings smiles to many and is recognized and appreciated by people in town. “I worked with Debi last year and she and the Connecticut Women turned the town pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. I was inspired by her energy, positive attitude, and determination,” stated Valerie Goodkin, executive assistant to the First Selectman. “Debi’s willingness to help others is contagious and every time I pass a pink rib-

bon in town, I fondly think of her.” Life is filled with its joys and sorrows, good times and bad times, rude awakenings, shocks, surprises and disappointments, and we must not dwell on the past but instead move forward in a positive and determined fashion while looking to the future. “Despite my ups and downs, I remain positive and surround myself with family, friends, and go-getters dedicated to the mission of helping others. I’m a giver who likes to see the smiles while making someone else’s life easier,” added a tearful Henninger. “Teamwork, generosity, and kindness are the perfect components for a better world filled with compassion, love, and smiles.” For more information, please contact Henninger at 203-641-2363.

Ecumenical service The 9-11 terrorist attacks are indelibly etched in the memory of every American. On Sept. 11 the North Haven Congregational Church hosted an ecumenical service for the North Haven community to mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks. An ecumenical choir, representing choirs from member organizations of the North Haven Clergy Association, “made beautiful music together,” as one attendee said. Preparing for the service, church members covered the walls and pews with 2,976 colorful sticky notes, one for each life lost as a result of the attacks. One person said, “It really hit home to realize that each sticky note represented a person who died.” The service was solemn and spiritually uplifting. One member said the reading of “Fireman’s Prayer” and the “Policeman’s Prayer” was very moving.

Raymond John Thomas, 81, of Blakeslee Avenue, North Haven, died Oct. 18, 2011, at the Masonic Health Care Center, Wallingford. He was the husband of 52 years to Sonia Kocur Thomas. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., on June 25, 1930, he was a son of the late John and Eleanor Ockasi Thomas.

Raymond had served his country faithfully in the U.S. Army military police during the Korean War; was an avid golfer and bowler; enjoyed playing bridge; and was a parishioner of St. Frances Cabrini Church where he was a former member of the Religious Education Board and usher.

Letters to the Editor

Devoted

Mentor

To the editor: Mike Freda has earned and deserves your vote to be reelected First Selectman. He is entirely devoted to the best interests of our town. During my 20 years of business, and throughout my first term in state office, I have met few public figures who share his tireless work ethic and devotion to municipal government. He shares my views on transparency with his similar open-door policy, and he performed admirably and creatively during the pressures of Hurricane Irene. While serving as your State Representative it has been a pleasure to work alongside Mike and I endorse him for First Selectman. David W. Yaccarino State Representative, North Haven

To the editor: This letter is an endorsement of Mr. Howard Cappetta for the North Haven Fire Commission. I have known Howie for over 30 years. For that entire period, Howie has been a volunteer firefighter for the town of North Haven. He was originally with West Ridge and eventually moved to the Montowese section of town where he has been ever since. He rose through the ranks to eventually become captain of that company. He served in that capacity for, as recollection serves me, at least seven years. He has practical experience as well as administrative and management experience in the fire service here in North Haven that will prove highly beneficial in his service as a member of the North Have Fire Commission.

In conclusion, I would like to mention a skill that Howie has that has gone unmentioned so far in the campaign. During his service as a volunteer firefighter and officer he has mentored countless young men who came to the fire service looking for guidance and help in taking their place among firefighters. Many of those young men went on to be career firefighters. All of those young men who were mentored and trained by Howie have benefited from his efforts. Thomas Muir North Haven

Personal example To the editor: Mike Freda has earned a second term as our first selectman. He has worked 24/7 for all of us as residents of North Haven. He’s become involved in all aspects of town government, and has

earned the respect and trust of our town employees. When he’s asked a question at a town meeting, he answers honestly and as completely as he can. If he doesn’t know the answer, he finds out. He hasn’t played partisanship politics. He’s done his best to build consensus across party lines on the issues facing North Haven. He’s told us what he was going to do, and then he made sure it was done. I would recommend that you vote for Mike, not because of any political affiliation, but because Mike is a leader who has been good for North Haven for the last two years, and who has a clear vision for North Haven’s future. A vote for Mike Freda and the entire slate is a vote for North Haven continuing to be a great place to live, with a town government that respects and cares for all its citizens based on the personal example that Mike has set. Jean Pieper, Chairman, North Haven Republican Town Committee

Great service To the editor: Commissioners Peter Criscuolo and Sam Muzio have served on the Board of Fire Commission during my 11-year career as a firefighter. Both men have served the town competently and favorably during my entire career. Here are the facts: These

two commissioners have supported state-of-the-art apparatus and equipment over the years to keep our members safe, accepted a SAFER Act grant to bring the professional force up to 32 firefighters (the first time this department added man power since 1974) and implemented a paramedic program to give our citizens advanced life support during medical or traumatic emergencies. Most recently, I got the opportunity to serve on the Building Committee with Commissioner Criscuolo (who was the chairman) and Commissioner Muzio. Our purpose was to evaluate and to strategically plan where we want to move our department’s infrastructure in the future. It is this association’s intention not only to bring out these choices under public comment, but to provide the people with the only choice. Vote for these men who brought this department into the 21st century and are laying the ground work to bring it into the next. Anthony DeSimone, President North Haven Fire Association

An Ounce of Prevention

Safe eating at bake sales, buffets and potlucks By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

Fall is full of festivals and events. It is a time of the year when groups hold special activities such as agricultural fairs, back-to-school fundraisers and parent nights, church bazaars and organizational kick-offs. They are often celebrated with bake sales, buffets and pot luck suppers. As the saying goes, “Feed them and they will come!” Everyone loves a bake sale! You get your choice of many goodies, without having to do the work. And most often, your purchase goes toward a good cause as these events are usually fundraisers for organizations, schools and churches. If you are planning a bake sale for your group, you should know that sponsoring organizations are responsible for the safety of the food products they offer for sale. Although traditional bake sale foods rarely cause illness, the public expects that the items they purchase will be safe to eat. Any food can cause an illness or other

Letters Continued from page 12

the two years since he was elected, Mr. Freda has been everything that he promised he would be as North Haven’s first selectman. Versus how polarized politics have become at the national level, Mike Freda is a leader who is open-minded. He treats everyone with respect and demonstrates a willingness to listen to other points of view. He doesn’t have any hidden agendas with his only goal being to make our town government as cost-effective and as responsive as possible so that North Haven can continue to be a great place for all of us to live. Nothing is more important than our elected officials keeping their promises. Mr. Freda is a person who has done what he said he would do. I trust Mike

problem (such as an injury or allergic reaction) if not prepared and labeled correctly. Event organizers should contact QVHD for a guidance document on food handling for bake sales. What about potluck suppers? Love them, right? You get to try a variety of casseroles and combinations that you never would have created yourself while visiting with friends. No one person is stuck with all the work and every one has a great time . . . except for the ones who get foodborne illness. You can help to prevent foodborne illness by preparing your food safely, transporting it safely, serving it safely and storing it safely. Remember — until serving time, hot foods should be kept hot and cold foods should be kept cold. At room temperature, foods should be eaten within two hours of serving.

Freda as our first selectman, and I’m going to vote again for him in this year’s election on November 8th. Lisa Kresge North Haven

Care about town To the editor: On Nov. 8, North Haveners will go to the polls to elect their town leaders for the next two years. I encourage them to vote for the entire Democratic ticket. During my time in public service, I’ve had the opportunity to work with and get to know the men and women running on the Democratic slate. They come from all walks of life, and have demonstrated that they care about this town and its people and share the same concerns: that we continue to have great services, great schools, reasonable taxes and public accountability.

In very warm weather (90 degrees and over) foods should be eaten within one hour of serving. And when the event is over, don’t try to save uneaten perishable foods. While it is hard to do, the safest thing to do is to discard leftovers. Event organizers can contact the Quinnipiac Valley Health Department (QVHD) for a brochure on food safety for buffets and pot-luck suppers. Other buffet/pot luck tips: Size matters! If you are not sure how quickly foods will be eaten, keep some of them in reserve in the oven (or in the refrigerator, depending on the type of food) and replenish as needed. Putting out smaller portions and replenishing when-needed will help keep foods safe, assuring “good eating” for even the late-arriving attendees. Keep It Fresh! Replace empty platters with freshly filled platters, rather than putting refills on used dishes. This helps to eliminate exposure to germs and dirt that may be on the hands of the guests and also helps to prevent cross-contamination of foods.

Chill out! You can place smaller bowls of cold foods (like shrimp, fruit, potato salad or dips) in larger bowls of ice to keep them cold. Replace ice as needed. (Keep coffee cream on ice as well.) Keep it Clean! Be sure all utensils and serving dishes are clean. Be sure food servers and table workers keep their hands clean! If your event is going beyond a bake sale and intends to sell food and it is open to the public, and not just members of the organization (for example, a strawberry festival), you will need to obtain a temporary food event license from QVHD. Failure to do so

Collectively, they have the experience and the knowledge to help the town, and have been working hard for years, each in his or her own way, to make North Haven an even better place to live. The people of North Haven can count on the Democratic team to listen to them and to treat them with respect. I therefore urge them to vote for the entire Democratic ticket on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Steve Fontana, Third Selectman, North Haven

it’s not a necessity. However, there are people who get free rides all of the time who don’t need it at all. My step-dad — a veteran, an amputee, blind and diabetic — wants to come and go as he pleases for the time that he has left. However, he can’t because he lives on a second-floor residence. He also can’t get rides to and from doctors’ appointments — only to dialysis and, even then, some rides aren’t covered. He has been at several hospitals and rehab homes and only setup with MyRide, which doesn’t assist with entering or exiting personal residences. How is he supposed to get up and down 14 curved stairs? The VA and Agency of Aging will only pay for regular stair lifts, not the custom one that he needs. He can also get a VNA just three times a week to stop in, but not on nights or

Better care now To the editor: Our generation shouldn’t have to be stressed over our elderly citizen’s healthcare. You receive a lot of paperwork, but no help. Why doesn’t Medicare pay for rides to and from doctors’ appointments — because they say

could result in the shutting down of your food operation.

Our patients and families are in need of your care and support. As a Connecticut Hospice volunteer, you can fill your hours (weekdays/evenings or weekends) by assisting in an administrative capacity or offering direct care as a friendly visitor, provide pastoral or bereavement care, help in the arts or meet transportation needs.

weekends. According to Connecticut, he doesn’t qualify for assistance. Additionally, certain vital medications are no longer covered. Why does our state and government help and pay for illegals and not us, especially seniors and vets, who are more in need? I thought that a new law was passed to help keep seniors at home and make them comfortable. I don’t have energy left to argue or plead for help. I’m doing the best I can to keep him comfortable for whatever time he has left. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. I am an overwhelmed step-daughter whose step-father, a Korean War veteran, fought to save us, but no one helps to save him. Karen McNamara, New Haven John Taneszio, North Haven

The American Red Cross is urging those who are eligible to make an appointment to donate blood and platelets and help make up the shortfall caused by weather related disruptions that came at the end of the summer, a time when the blood supply is typically low. Flooding, Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and severe weather in many areas of the country significantly disrupted blood collections. More than 145 American Red Cross blood drives were cancelled, resulting in the shortfall of thousands of units of blood and platelets. Thousands of blood donations are needed each and every day to meet the needs of accident victims, cancer patients, and children with blood disorders. These patients and others rely on lifesaving blood products during their treatments and rely on the generosity of volunteer blood donors. Blood has a limited shelf life and platelets have a shelflife of just five days. Individuals who are 17 years of age, meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to give blood. As a special thank you to donors during the month of November, all those who come in to donate blood can enter for a chance to win a PivotDriver cordless, rechargeable screwdriver,

Yaccarino at business roundtable In a natural extension of his North Haven Business Tour, State Rep. Dave Yaccarino (R-87) recently participated in a business roundtable at the Legislative Office Building that brought more than 50 business owners and executives together to express their concerns over Connecticut’s poor business climate and offer their ideas for solutions. Many of the ideas shared were not new to Yac-

carino, who has been touring North Haven businesses in an effort to gather input in advance of an Oct. 26 special legislative session focused on improving a state business climate that ranks among the nation’s worst. “Business owners throughout my district have been telling me how difficult it is to stay competitive when energy and health care costs and state regulations are so prohibitive,” Rep. Yaccarino said. “Over and over I hear that Connecticut is a great place to live but because of government policies it’s a difficult place to run a business.” Nearly every business owner or company executive who spoke described their bad experiences in trying to navigate a seemingly endless, cumbersome and costly set of state regulations

spread across several agencies. Many also expressed frustration over a governor’s administration that’s asking them what they need to create more jobs shortly after not only imposing the largest tax increase in state history, but also forcing some employers to provide mandatory paid sick leave to employees. “Government needs to get out of the way and allow businesses to do what they do best,” Rep. Yaccarino said. “We should support the businesses we already have and work to bring new companies here with lower energy costs, a streamlined permitting process and elimination of the business entity tax. We should not be adding mandates and raising taxes on the job creators of our state.”

North Haven drops tough game against Notre Dame By Kevin Pataky North Haven Citizen Contributor When this season began, North Haven High School’s varsity football team circled game number six on their calendar as their toughest test - an away-game rematch with Notre Dame. Last year’s upset win over the defending state champion Green Knights was a difficult task — a three-point victory which helped propel the

Indians into the 2010 state playoffs. To begin their 2011 campaign, the Indians reeled off five straight victories and had a 14-game regular season win streak heading into the Oct. 21 matchup against Notre Dame, who was 3-2, but their losses were to top-five teams Xavier and Daniel Hand. The Indians came out fired up, won the coin toss and, in unexpected fashion, opted to receive the ball. North Haven then went on

76-yard drive which spanned over seven minutes and culminated with Jaon White’s six-yard run for a touchdown. The resulting point-afterattempt kick was blocked, so North Haven’s lead stayed at 6-0. But the fire was still burning and the defense came out with an intense fervor and forced the Green Knights to punt after three quick plays. A bounding kick appeared to hit a Notre Dame player at the 25-yard line, and then the ball rolled towards the goal line and was downed at the one-yard line. The questionable call put North Haven in an inauspicious position pinned in at

On the first play that followed, sophomore Ethan Suraci fumbled in the end zone and Anthony Masucci recovered it for the Green Knights for a touchdown. A succesful PAT kick gave Notre Dame a 7-6 lead. North Haven stayed with their game plan and marched See Football, next page

seed, earning home-field game in the opening round. The Fourth Grade A Team won their final regular season game 26-0 against Branford. The first score of the game came from an interception from Joe Wenzel, his

first of two on the game, which he ran back 55 yards to the end zone. After a penalty on the extra point, Noah Perillie hit Wenzel for a 15-yard pass to gain the extra point. The next score came behind a three-yard dive into the end zone by Perillie, led by bruising blocking from Jack Priebe and Joseph Hendricks. The Indians third score came from a long run from Jeff Williston. Eric Meyer added the final touchdown of the day with a hard sevenyard run off tackle. Jack Priebe dove into the end zone to cap the scoring on his extra point run. The defense was bolstered by great secondary work from Wenzel, Jaden Watson, Justin Nadonly and RJ Hager, who added an interception late in the game.

Ethan Okwuosa scored on a 50-yard opening kickoff and Max Rivera added the extra point to make it 7-0. Ethan Okwuosa had an interception on Tri-Town’s first offensive play and ran it

back for 75 yards, making that his second touchdown. Max Rivera tried to put in the extra point but got stopped short, and North Haven led 13-0. Ethan Okwuosa added a 40-yard touchdown to the

score, his third of the day. Tyler Jacques scored the last touchdown from 20 yards out; he also had a great defensive day by recovering a fumble. Marco Liuzzi, Joe Verrillo, David Pace and Christopher Hansen all had a great game on both sides of the ball. Joe Urtel and Jaden Luedee had a terrific running game. Donny McInnis, Joe Ranciato, Damian Carrano, and Joe Vitale played well on defense. The whole squad as a whole played outstanding with great teamwork, effort and determination. North Haven’s fifthgraders defeated Clinton 3319 on a 60-yard opening kickoff return by Noah Pastore, who also scored on a 40-yard touchdown run. Alex Ciaburro scored a touchdown on a

30-yard run to the Clinton 25yard line, and included tough defensive plays by Michael Collins, John Crispi, Nick Carras, Ben Fisher and Jesse Johnson. North Haven’s sixth grade squad finished the regular season at 8-0 with a 22-0 victory over previously undefeated Madison. After a scoreless first quarter, Jake Bencivengo ran one in from 35 yards out, and, with a Steven Erbe two-point kick, North Haven went up 8-0.

Football Continued from page 19 right down and scored again when senior co-captain and quarterback Joe Schwab connected with Spencer Oakes for a 13-yard touchdown pass. The try for two that followed was stopped so the lead stood at 12-7. Still sputtering on offense, the Green Knights turned the ball over on their next possession in their own end when Masucci dropped a fumble of his own and North Haven recovered. The Indians moved right down to the six-yard line, but were called with a costly holding penalty and had to settle for a field goal try.

Senior Jake Scafariello’s kick appeared to go off the side of his foot and the ball squibbed its way down to the one-yard line, where it was downed. To this point in the game, North Haven led in total yards with 207 to Notre Dame’s 13 ,but had only a five point lead to show for it. With only 3:14 to play in the half, the Green Knights began to shift the momentum their way, putting together a 17-play, 99-yard drive and ultimately scored with 13 seconds left when their quarterback Nate Schambach fumbled at the goal line and Cameron Tucker recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. The PAT kick that followed gave Notre

Dame a 14-12 lead at the half. The teams played a scoreless third quarter as they traded punts until the Green Knights gained favorable field position and then worked a drive which ended with a 16-yard touchdown run from Tucker on the second play of the fourth quarter. The PAT kick was no good, so North Haven was still within reach - behind only 20-12. But the Indians could not put together a drive and eventually were dealt a knockout punch when Green Knight Javon Grey took off for a 48-yard touchdown run with just under three minutes to play.

Flair for Hair had its grand re-opening at its new location, 310 Washington Ave. It celebrates 21 years in business by cutting of a ribbon with North Haven First Selectman Mike Freda. JoyceLyn Altieri, owner, chose a pink ribbon to also kick off breast cancer awareness month. Please join Joyce-Lyn and her team at the 13th annual “Cut For A Cure” on Sunday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Debate Continued from page 5 period, resident Raymond Fowler asked how each candidate would balance the needs of town departments without having to raise taxes. “We’ve compressed $2 million in costs out of North Haven in the past 18 months,” Freda responded. “We identify superfluous costs which do not affect the residents and cut them, such as not replacing positions or consolidating positions.” “We have also been working hard to consolidate energy costs,” he added. Spader responded, “We’re already running a bare bones system at town hall, but sometimes, there are still costs that can be avoided. You’ve got to live within your budget, and you’ve got to make sure that town employees are living within theirs. You’ve got to have the wherewithal to say ‘no’ when that special request comes in.” Amato reiterated his idea for a new, full-time economic development position. “It comes down to this,” he said. “We need someone to bring businesses into town.” Speaker Don Clark recalled that Freda had fre-

quently pledged enhanced economic development during his victorious 2009 run for town hall. Clank wondered, two years later, whether Freda’s economic development efforts could be considered successful. “A lot of Freda’s mailers back then did make the promise for economic development,” Spader said. “It turned out to be a lot more difficult to get accomplished in two years.” Freda replied, “There’s no question we’re in difficult economic times, but I just try to compartmentalize that issue. I will work to control what I can control. One thing that differs from town to town is the different levels of the first selectman’s integrating into the business community. We are out there, every day, touting North Haven to the business community.” Gary again called for a fulltime economic development staffer. “I’m not going to make promises — I’m going to make guarantees. We’re going to have a full-time economic development employee in here,” he said. “It’s what they’re going to do full-time. And they’re going to get results, or they won’t be there next year.”
