Police funds unknowingly ‘swept’ into general fund By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Questions swirled on the movement of funds from special police accounts to the general town fund at last week’s Board of Selectmen meeting. Police Commission chairman Joseph D’Errico and Police Chief James X. DiCarlo both protested that funds had been swept without their knowledge from a special police cruiser account. When contacted after the meeting, town Comptroller and Assistant Director of Finances Ed Swinkowski said that the account had not been swept entirely clean. The police cruiser account is part of the larger police outside-duty account. Both accounts are filled by contractors who rent the time of

police officers and police cruisers, and both accounts are used to pay for extra police department expenditures. Police officers’ time can be rented by construction contractors, DiCarlo said when contacted. These officers conduct traffic at construction sites that impede town roads. The officers are paid time-and-a-half upfront by the town, a cost which is then recouped when the rental fees are placed into the outside-duty account. Additionally, contractors can rent the use of a police cruiser for construction sites, DiCarlo said. Rented cruisers are parked at a site at night, and their flashing lights aid the flow of traffic past the obstruction.

Questions from public dominate BOS meeting By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Public comment dominated the Oct. 1 Board of Selectmen meeting, as questions targeted first selectman debates, an annual town meeting, sewer fees, and the public topics applicable to the meeting. Before public comment, First Selectman Janet McCarty announced that the town had received a state grant of $250,000 to expand the public works garage. The grant is in addition to a $300,000 grant the town has already received for the garage, McCarty added. The grant will help provide town-owned storage for North Haven sanitation vehicles. “We will move sanitation trucks from a leased

property and move them to the new, expanded garage,” McCarty said. McCarty also announced that the library’s roof repairs were several weeks from being completed, that there will be an economic development breakfast on Oct. 15, and that North Haven has switched to single-stream recycling. In public comment, speaker Irene Salman asked McCarty why she has declined to debate fellow first selectman candidate Freda in a series of unscripted debates set up by the Committee to Elect Michael Freda. McCarty responded that the question was a “political matter” and should not be discussed in a “business meeting.” McSee BOS, page 4

Burns case will be heard in New Haven court By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen A New Haven County Court judge ruled Sept. 30 against the Town of North Haven’s attempt to quash Bob Burns’ application for a writ of mandamus. As a result, Burns’ case will be heard in New Haven court. Another finding in his favor would force North Haven to hold a special town

meeting to vote on whether to restore his eliminated town position. Burns and his lawyer Chip Walsh had applied for the writ of mandamus – or a request for a higher court’s ruling – in May. The application came after the Board of Selectmen denied a special town meeting on the restoration of Burns’ town engineer-two position. The town engineer-two po-

sition had been left out of the 2009–10 fiscal year budget, which was approved March 18 by the Board of Finance. A motion to restore the position was voted down on April 15 by the Board of Finance. On April 27, Burns filed a petition with the signatures of 20 town residents with the North Haven town clerk, to request that a town meeting

Fire department provides smoke detector Q&A

Why do we need smoke detectors? Smoke detectors can save your life and those of your family. Most fatal home fires occur at night, while people sleep. Fire produces toxic gases and smoke that actually numb the senses. If you’re asleep, or become disoriented by toxic gases, you may not even realize that there is a fire. You can’t rely on your own senses to detect a fire. Is there proof that smoke detectors save

lives? Yes. Almost every day, news reports across the country tell where smoke detectors have saved lives. In several instances, the battery-operated detectors were not mounted, but still alerted families to fire. Fire officials continually cite smoke detectors as life savers in home fires. What do I look for when choosing a smoke detector? Look for the following

when selecting your home smoke detector: - It should display the marking of a recognized independent testing laboratory such as Underwriters Lab, etc., and be listed and approved for sale, installation and home use. - It should have a warning signal that warns you when bulbs or batteries need replacing. - The batteries and bulb should be readily available for purchase and easy to re-

place. - The smoke detector’s alarm must be loud enough (85 decibel or louder) to wake a sleeping person behind a closed door. Special detectors are available for hard of hearing persons. Where should I install a smoke detector? At the bare minimum, you should have one detector for each level in your home. A detector needs to be placed within 10 feet of sleeping areas, since most fire deaths

occur at night while people are sleeping. The detector should be mounted on the ceiling or high on the wall, six to 12 inches below the ceiling. Should I test my smoke detector? How often? Every detector comes with testing instructions. Activating the test mechanism once a month should be sufficient. Always test battery powered detectors after a vacation or

Carty added that after the meeting, Salman could receive an answer. After the meeting, McCarty said that there is already a series of debates scheduled between her and Freda. “Next week, there is the League of Women Voters’ debate,” she said. “I know you can’t ask questions there, but after that is the Quinnipiac

Chamber of Commerce. There will be two to three set questions, and then an hour in which people can ask questions. There is also the Mishkan Israel debate, where the floor will be open to questions.” Additionally, McCarty said that the first selectman position keeps her too busy to attend Freda’s committee’s debates. “Every day, all day, and most nights, I’m performing the duties of the first selectman,” she said. “If

I had more time, I would take part in the debates.” “I don’t feel we need any more time to talk about the issues,” McCarty added. “It’s clear where I stand on the record. Mr. Freda has had a chance to say where he stands on the record.” Speaker Veronica Kivela asked the selectmen whether they would ever support a charter reform committee to change North Haven’s town meeting fashion of government. “I will not initiate such a committee,” McCarty said, “but if a charter reform group chooses to meet by themselves, I will not stop them.” “I feel very strongly about this form of government,” Freda said. “I have no intentions on changing the town meeting form of government.” Selectman Steve Fontana said that he also supports the town meeting government.

the budget. McCarty said that because the budget was not overspent and did not require new appropriations to be balanced, there was no need to hold a meeting. “The town attorney agreed that because there were no new appropriations, there was no need for a town meeting,” McCarty said. “The money has already been spent. What would happen if the townspeople voted no, but the money has already been spent?” The budget was balanced in August through internal expenditure transfers. McCarty said that although a town meeting was not necessary because the lack of new appropriations, she would hold a non-town meeting for expenditure transfer clarification. “I’m happy to have an informational meeting if that’s what the public wants,” she said. Freda stated that he was in favor of the annual town meeting, regardless of whether new appropriations were necessary. “I would prefer to err on

Speaker Jeff Brangi was worried that townspeople were not alerted that their sewer usage fees would be going up. McCarty responded that the Water Pollution Control Authority, which sets the town’s fees, had given public notice and held a public hearing on the increased fees. McCarty added that the fee increase was due to the system’s aging. “The sewer usage fee had not been increased in the last eight to nine years in a row,” McCarty said. “As a result, the system is very old. There are quite a few problems regarding maintenance.” The first selectman said that much of the sewer equipment dates to the 1960s and must be fixed. “We want to make sure that the equipment is in good condition so that the people in town with sewers are not interrupted in their service,” she said. McCarty also pointed out that those without sewer hookups will not be charged an additional fee.

having been away from home for a week or more. The battery may have gone dead and you may have missed its warning alarm. How should I care for a smoke detector? Vacuum the detector once or twice a year to remove any dust or cobwebs. This will cut down on false alarms. Most battery powered smoke detectors will chirp sporadically when the battery is weak. We recommend that batteries be changed twice a year, when you change your clocks in the spring and fall. What should we do if the smoke detector sounds? If a smoke detector is sounding, there is a reason. Never ignore the sound of a smoke detector. You and your family must be able to escape quickly and safely. Here are some steps your family can take: - Draw up and rehearse a fire evacuation plan from your house. - Make sure each family member knows two ways to escape from any room in the house. - Always check the door to see if it is hot before opening it to escape. - If you must go through a smoke-filled area, crawl on your hands and knees. There will be less smoke and heat at floor level. - Make sure everyone knows the prearranged location outside of the house to meet. This way you can count noses and be sure everyone is safe. - Call 9-1-1- from a neighbor’s house or the nearest phone outside of your house. - Never return to the inside of a burning building. —North Haven Fire Headquarters

Two canine buddies unite neighbors through love and friendship By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen

It has often been said that dog is a man’s best friend. For the Kivela and O’Connor families of Drazen Drive in North Haven, their love, admiration, and ownership of two special dogs have created a strong and loving friendship that has been a heartwarming experience for all involved. “My husband Dick, my son Mark and I moved to North Haven in 1989 and we

had a wonderful dog named Sandy,” recalled Veronica Kivela. “Sadly, in 2003, Sandy died from bone cancer and we were devastated. Five months later we adopted another dog named Annie from a private family. Annie is half Labrador retriever and half terrier. She is the joy of our lives.” While Veronica and her family were enjoying life with Annie, a new family moved next door. Tom and Maria O’Connor and their three sons had no pets. When

the two families met, they quickly bonded and the O’Connor boys became very fond of Annie. The O’Connor boys – Tommy, Joe, and Bobby – would spend their days visiting and playing with Annie. It wasn’t long after that the boys wanted to get a dog of their own. “My husband Tom grew up with dogs, but I never had a dog for a pet. Since I was a little girl, I had a fear of dogs, but after meeting Annie my fear ceased to exist,” said Maria O’Connor. “During this past Memorial Day weekend, my family and I went to an open house at Animal Haven on Mill Road and we fell in love with all the dogs there, especially with a pure bred coon hound named Pearl who we adopted.” When the O’Connor family took Pearl home, they wasted no time in sharing the good news with their neighbors. Veronica and Dick were thrilled for them. A week later, upon the recommendation of Veronica, Annie and Pearl met in the Kivela’s backyard. “When Annie and Pearl met in my backyard, both dogs got along and have been great buddies ever since,” said Veronica. “We all are overjoyed and we share wonderful moments of laughter and happiness as we watch Annie and Pearl play.”

Three weeks later, while Maria was tending to Pearl, she discovered a lump on Pearl’s left side. They took Pearl to Merryfield Animal Hospital in Hamden, and it was there that the veterinarian, Dr. Engstrom, diagnosed the lump as being a malignant tumor. Dr. Engstrom successfully removed the tumor but Pearl had a long recovery ahead of her. “When we brought Pearl home from the animal hospital, she was weak, shy, and somewhat withdrawn,” recalled Maria. “We were very worried about her. Then one day we brought Pearl to see Annie and by some miracle Annie’s attention to Pearl helped her to recover. Pearl’s recovery was a gift from God

Friends Continued from page 6 that we are thankful for.” Under the watchful eyes of their owners, Annie and Pearl spend their time chasing after one another, eating together, playing with Annie’s stuffed toys, digging holes in the backyard, taking walks in the neighborhood, and playing fetch with a green tennis ball. The two dogs even go to the same veterinarian for their yearly check-ups, and Pearl sleeps at Annie’s house when her owners go on vacation. They also watch Veronica and Dick working in their vegetable and pumpkin gardens. The dogs’ latest activity is playing hide and seek in the pumpkin patch. “They are funnier than a comedy show,” said Dick Kivela. “Every time I see them playing together or Annie chasing Pearl through the pumpkin patch, I laugh until my side aches. They are a true joy.” These two lovable canines not only brought two neighboring families together, but also have created a bond of friendship that is priceless.

Both families plan on remaining good friends, helping each other in times of need, and continuing to enjoy the love and joy that their two special pets bring into their lives every day. “This has been a wonderful learning experience and I would tell all families with children to adopt a pet,” Maria said. “They bring nothing but joy and happiness.” “Pearl is my best friend,” said two-year-old Bobby O’Connor. “I like Annie too.” One cannot help but be inspired by Annie and Pearl’s precious story of friendship, and can learn a lesson in loyalty, love, and compassion from our four legged friends. “Both Annie and Pearl are very special gifts,” said Tom O’Connor. “I grew up with dogs and I’m glad to share this experience with my wife, my sons, and my neighbors Veronica and Dick.” “Annie and Pearl each saved us in a special way and we saved them,” Veronica said. “They provide us with happiness and unconditional love while also being a treasured blessing. I call them the ladies of Drazen Drive with wagging tails.”

the side of caution,” he said. “A legal opinion has been rendered here, but I prefer to comply with Connecticut State Statute 7-348 which states that an annual town meeting should be held before any money is spent. It’s the safest thing to do for the future.” Speaker Ann Ruocco said that she believed that there should be an annual town meeting toward the end of every fiscal year. “I went every year,” she said of past meetings. “There were a lot of people there. I do believe that there were times that at the meetings, people asked a lot of questions and found out a lot of information. They should be reinstated.” Ruocco asked whether Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal had responded yet to a query sent to him by the Board of Finance regarding the matter. McCarty responded that he had not. Speaker Jim Leahy stated that the lack of an annual town meeting this year

should be taken as a positive sign of the current administration. “This is the first time that the budget has been balanced in a long time,” he said. “There was no need for another town meeting. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t see an issue.” After several other speakers broached the subject, McCarty said that she thought it was inappropriate to continue the discussion, as the other members of the Board of Finance were not present. Kivela responded that it was inconvenient for the selectmen to limit the topics that could be broached at their board meeting. “I can appreciate you trying to restrict the topics to what this meeting is for,” she said, “but not everybody in town can set aside five nights a month to go to every meeting to ask one question.” “It’s very frustrating to say that we have to go to the Board of Finance to ask that question,” Kivela added. “Would the first selectman winner consider setting aside a time where people can ask anything they want to ask?” See BOS, page 24

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, October 9, 2009

Court Continued from page 1

be held in order to vote on the restoration of his position. At the May 4 Board of Selectmen meeting, First Selectman Janet McCarty and Selectman Steve Fontana voted against warning such a meeting, while Selectman Michael Freda voted in favor. The 2-1 vote halted the petition and precipitated Burns’ application for a writ of mandamus. In writing his memorandum of decision in favor of Burns, New Haven judge

Robert Berdon consulted Connecticut General Statute 7-1 as well as Connecticut Supreme Court Case Lyon v. Rice (1874). Connecticut General Statute 7-1 states that “the selectman… shall warn a special town meeting on application of 20 inhabitants qualified to vote on town meetings.” In connection, Berdon utilized Lyon v. Rice as precedent. The 19th century ruling found that “as long as the requested meeting is for ‘any legitimate and proper purpose’, the selectmen must warn the meeting and have no discretion to refuse it.” Town attorneys had ar-

gued that Burns’ meeting was not for a “legitimate and proper purpose,” and therefore could be denied. Citing for precedent the Connecticut Supreme Court Case Morris v. Congdon (2006), in which the town of Preston was granted the right to hold a town meeting to vote on the removal of a town position, Berdon wrote, “it is obvious that the appointment of Engineer II is such a [legitimate and proper] purpose.” Town attorneys also argued that Burns had not yet exhausted all his other alternative venues to reinstate his position, and therefore was incapable of yet consulting a court. The town attorneys suggested that Burns could have first filed a union grievance. In response, Berdon ruled that while Burns could have filed a union grievance, “it is insufficient reason to summarily grant this motion to quash without a full hearing on this writ of mandamus.”

“We’re very pleased with the court’s decision with regard to the motion to quash the writ of mandamus,” Walsh said. “We have contended all along that warning a town meeting for the purpose of reinstating the engineer-two position is part of the legal process.” “This also confirms that the claim to reinstate the position would require a special appropriation beyond the budget is not an accurate statement,” Walsh added. “The court agreed with us that if the position is reinstated into the budget, it could be paid for by a transfer from within the budget, or from the special fund balance.” Town attorney Richard Parrett was not surprised by the ruling, but remained confident in the case’s ultimate outcome. “A motion to quash is not easily granted,” he said. “I can understand why the judge didn’t want to sum-

marily dismiss the case now, to give the man his day in court.” Parrett said that he is currently exploring the option to appeal the ruling. Additionally, Parrett is confident that a writ of mandamus hearing would find in favor of North Haven and against holding a town meeting for Burns’ position. “It doesn’t make sense, either legally or logically,” he said. “They want to call a town-wide referendum to vote on one line item that everybody knows has been expressively eliminated from the budget by the Board of Finance, and that decision was endorsed by the voters at annual town meeting.” Parrett stated that town meeting would only have the right to restore the position. The Board of Finance, the town attorney said, would have to fund it, and the board has already voted against do-

Aesop’s fable of the grasshopper and the ant always occurs painfully to me at this time of year. For those who remember, all summer long Grasshopper played while Ant scurried about, collecting grains to store up for winter. When the cold arrived, Ant was snug in her nest and Grasshopper left starving in the snow. Aesop’s moral is about preparing for the uncertainty of the future, of course. You can call it long-range planning for known needs. Why is it, then, that we tend not to? I don’t know why, but I have observed that it is part of the American psyche. As a people we seem to feel that we can fix anything that might break at the very last minute. We’re inventive and entrepreneurial, individual and flexible, daring and energetic. Yet at the same time, we put things off. Right now we are letting slide past our fixed attention the single largest problem—or set of problems— the human-dominated world has yet encountered. These are problems of our species’ making, and they come down to a change in climate that threatens every aspect of the planet’s life. Even if we don’t care about polar bears drowning or more violent and more frequent storms, what about the things that will affect our children in the most direct way? More and more disease borne by insects and microbes, water shortages, refugee problems as land floods or dries up, agricultural dustbowls. With global warming it’s the road to Apocalypse, and it is happening now. Unfortunately, in the fable we are writing the Ant will suffer along with the Grasshopper, willy-nilly. We’ll all be out in the cold (or heat) if we don’t pull together. I am a member of the North Haven Clean Energy

Task Force, a volunteer organization that tries to enlist residents of this town to pay a little extra money for clean energy (wind, solar, hydro), in order to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that dirty energy (coal) pumps into our air along with particulate matter. These are the gases that cause global warming. My opinions above about human behavior do not reflect those of this task force; they are my own. And yet I can’t figure out how, in a relatively affluent town (2007 median income: $78,866) of 8,829 households, only 2.25 percent have signed up for clean energy? These 200 or so households have, by signing, brought more clean energy onto the grid. And, they earned for North Haven three solar panels to be put on our public buildings, thereby decreasing the amount the town pays for energy. We want to earn more solar panels. We want to encourage new sign ups. We’re trying hard to get people to pay attention to clean energy if not for themselves, then for future generations. We thank those who have committed to this cause and hope that more people will realize that this is a real way they can help to mitigate a gigantic problem at very little sacrifice. So please, don’t let thinking about global warming slip by. Don’t let doing something about it slip by. Go to the town’s Web site w w w. t o w n . n o r t h, and follow the menu trail (government, boards and commissions, Clean Energy Task Force) to sign up to support clean energy. All you need is right here. Energy-saving strategy: You wouldn’t start your car without the kids buckled up, right? So when leaving the house, make a game of having your kids turn off the lights and appliances. Don’t start the car until that’s done.


Friday, October 9, 2009 — The North Haven Citizen

Letters to the Editor Election letters policy In order to allow the largest number of citizens to express their opinions on the upcoming elections, we have a special election season letter policy. The deadline for election letters is the same, Tuesday by noon, and will be strictly adhered to. Election letters will be limited to 250 words. For the last week before elections (deadline Oct. 29) only positive letters of support will be accepted. Of course, only signed letters with phone numbers (so we can verify authorship) will be accepted. All other letter rules apply (see box below).

Letters policy Readers of The North Haven Citizen are invited to share their ideas and opinions by sending in Letters to the Editor. To facilitate the publication of your contributions, several guidelines should be followed. We require that all letters be signed, and include a daytime telephone number (numbers won’t be published, it is just for verification purposes). The writer will be called to confirm authorship. No anonymous letters will be printed. Contributions by any individual or group will not be published more frequently than twice a month. Every effort will be made to print all letters received. However, the selection and date of publication will be at the discretion of the editor. Finally, the opinions expressed by our letter writers are not necessarily those of this newspaper. Deadline for letter submissions is Tuesday by noon for Friday’s publication. E-mail your letters to

Trash contract in best interest of town To the editor: I watched the September Board of Selectmen’s meeting on NHTV, and I am concerned about a question that was asked of Selectman Michael Freda about trash collection in North Haven during the public comment portion of the meeting. Apparently, Mr. Freda claimed that the town’s trash business wasn’t put out to bid before the trash-to-energy contract with Covanta was approved at a town meeting. The inference is that Mr. Freda is in favor of out-sourcing trash collection, eliminating jobs in the Department of Public Works. As a long-time resident of North Haven, I remember when trash collection by the Department of Public Works began under Democratic First Selectman Dick Parrett’s administration. I think the Department of Public Works does a terrific and efficient job of collecting the trash. I agree with explanation given by town attorney John Parese, that the trash contract negotiated by First Selectman Janet McCarty and her staff, and the four other towns who participate in the operation of the trash-to-energy plant, is not the type of contract that should be put out to bid. The contract Janet negotiated clearly is in the best interest of North Haven’s taxpayers, and preserves the jobs of our public works employees. M.J. Thompson North Haven

Putting politics first? To the editor: A note on the two Republican candidates, Michael Freda and Tim Doheny. I believe the only short term they have in politics was under the past administration, their mentors, Kevin J. Kopetz, Joseph Ierardi, and Vincent E. Palmeri Jr. Both candidates sat on the finance board. Michael Freda was not even elected to the third selectman post, but only appointed (second choice), af-

ter Kevin J. Kopetz refused it. (I guess if a Republican can’t be on top, they give up). As members of the Board of Finance have a record, of which we should examine, let’s see: no 28 firefighters, no rescue truck, no applications for safety grants, no public works garage, no senior center support, and no phase-in for tax relief. Now, they did say “yes” to one thing in the campaign — “raise taxes.” Freda and Doheny probably do not believe in these votes. But since they only care about being elected, they will oppose any efforts Janet makes to improve the town. So I ask, why vote for someone who put politics before your best interests? Pat Violano North Haven

Democrat recommends Republican hibernation To the editor: After 22 months in office, Janet McCarty is still taking criticism from a handful of selfish and disgruntled Republicans. In 22 months not one has offered any kind of solution to their so-called made up problems, but continued to be negative and try to make not only our first selectman, but the whole town, look bad. Pure selfishness on their part. In my view, Janet’s opponents don’t care that they harm our town when they try to hurt her. If these few can’t control the town, let’s knock it down. They are the same few Republicans who had the 200 years (minus four years of Democrats), to make North Haven better. Instead they put a black cloud on our good name; held back on programs that improved the town’s safety with paramedics, firefighters and police; never allowed department heads to run their departments; not have the town apply for any grant funds; holding back on equipment funding, manpower, education, seniors; overspending on no bid contracts; never putting health insurance out to bid; refused to settle workman’s compensation claims and refused to help taxpay-

ers with the phase-in plan. Although, this year in the worse financial times, these few Republicans want to raise taxes. Janet McCarty provided all the above solutions, saving the town, us, the taxpayers, Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike, over $13 million and received over $1.5 million in grants, more dollars for school services, and most important, zero tax increase. So, when I read all the negative letters from this small group of selfish people, I say why not go back into hibernation, like you have been under the past administration. In the past, you never showed up to argue, or insult the past administration at any of the town or Board of Selectmen meetings. So I ask Michael Freda and Tim Doheny to do what is right. Put the town before their party and acknowledge the many great things this administration has been able to accomplish in a short time. Peter J. Criscuolo Jr. Chairman, Democratic Town Committee North Haven

Many thanks for years of service To the editor: I heard some sad news today. It really is the end of an era. Two of my favorite sanitation workers are retiring from the Town of North Haven in October after 38 years of diligence and loyalty. Their names are Jim Tyrrell and Billy Ray. It seems like yesterday that I first peeked out the window when I heard the sound of a truck engine and banging garbage cans. I remember watching two men working in perfect harmony. One would throw a can and empty it while the other prepared to throw the next. I never saw them miss. But that was not what was most memorable but rather the obvious fun they were having. They may not have been doing the most glamorous job but they were smiling and laughing. Sanitation workers do not always receive proper acknowledgment. They are looked down upon and more often taken advantage of. In my mind, they keep us safe

just as the police and the fire department. They take away on a weekly basis everything we do not want. They do it in the deadly heat of the summer, freezing cold of the winter and the deluge of rain in the spring. If they did not do their jobs, just think of what we would be surrounded by. I have heard the stories of how dangerous their jobs are. Cars rushing by without regard, garbage cans filled with waste so heavy it takes three men to empty, and contents that actually risk their lives. Every North Haven town resident should review the sanitation guidelines and then reflect on their own compliance. These men deserve recognition for being champions. Congratulations guys! Your commitment and contribution to the North Haven community has been appreciated. Your presence will be missed. Sandra Lee Tyrrell North Haven

A vote for McCarty

To the editor: I will be voting for Janet McCarty on Nov. 3, and this is one reason for my support. Janet has always been a strong advocate of public education. Before being elected first selectman she had volunteered for the various school PTAs for many years. She also served on the PTA Council, is a co-founder of the North Haven Education Foundation, and regularly attended meetings of the Board of Education’s Curriculum Committee. In the past one and a half years she has worked closely with Superintendent of Schools Sara Querfeld to retain valuable programs in our schools, despite the poor economy. Recently, it was announced that the before and after school child care programs had been enhanced and the day care program through the Parks and Recreation Department is now accredited by the state. In the past, when the budget was voted upon, it was always divisive, pitting the town side against education. For years the budget was repeatedly defeated, one year as many as seven times,

To the editor: Over the course of these last few months, I have read many an article reporting on Ms. Leigh Gomez’s CHRO complaint, relating to her claims of discrimination and retaliation. As you are aware, Ms. Gomez filed a rebuttal statement to the response of Janet McCarty, concerning Ms. Gomez’s CHRO complaint. One of the most alarming items in Ms. Gomez’s rebuttal was her statement that e-mails in the office of the first selectman have been deleted. As I am sure you are aware, in Connecticut, a municipal government agency may apply for permission to destroy or transfer records by utilizing a “Records Disposal Authorization, Connecticut Towns, Municipalities, and Boards of Education,” Form RC-075, pursuant to Connecticut General Statues § 7-109. A request must be signed by the custodian of the records and the administrative head of the municipality. Records may not be destroyed or transferred until the Office of the Public Records Administrator has returned a signed disposal authorization form to the requester. Records regarding personnel/labor relations are covered on a Municipal Records Retention Schedule M2. Electronic messages, including email, fax, instant messaging, text messaging, and voice mail, are included in the records disposal laws. Elec-

Accomplishments are not just luck

To the editor: The theme of the McCarty/Fontana ticket for re-election this year is “A Proven Track Record.� I write to endorse that statement of fact. Their detractors would have us believe that nothing of value has come from this administration. We’ve even heard that the few concessions that the critics have made were just “luck,� that certain things would have happened regardless of who was in office. Attaining grants amounting to hundreds of thousands of dol-

lars does not happen by chance. It takes a sharp mind and hard work to accomplish this. Saving the town hundreds of thousands of dollars on insurance premiums obviously hadn’t happened in recent memory, so I’m guessing that it did matter who was in office. Add to that the fact that the very company which could not possibly lower its bid last year, came in much lower this time. And how many years have we been hearing that our community should have a paramedic program? Was it just luck that allowed us to catch a large windfall from our multi-town trash disposal program? These accomplishments are a result of Janet McCarty’s leadership and dedication to the citizens of North Haven, not a matter of “luck.� The track record of accomplishment continues, so I’m putting my support where it has proven to be a positive record for North Haven. I’m voting for the reelection of the McCarty/ Fontana team on Nov. 3. Ann Kuhlman North Haven

Previous letter ‘thin on facts’ To the editor: I found Bill Gambardella’s letter in the paper long on exaggerations and vague inferences, but thin on facts. In his first paragraph he states, “She was left with nothing

short of a disaster.� What exactly does that mean? There was no explanation. Maybe being selected one of the top 100 towns in the nation in 2007 constitutes a disaster. He continues with statements about our economy being in shambles, our crumbling roads, leaky roofs, and a rodent infested middle school. I suppose the inference here is that for the previous 30 years the past administrations never paved a road, repaired a roof, or replaced a vehicle. Everything remained frozen in time until Janet came along. What drivel. He further points out the procurement of two garbage trucks. I guess if Ms. McCarty hadn’t been elected our trash collectors would have had to transport the garbage in the trunks of their cars. Your accomplishments as first selectman must be few and far between when you have to extol the purchase of garbage trucks. What really stands out in Mr. Gambardella’s letter are the accusations concerning the glass that surfaced in the new fields on the old high school site and the fact that the high school may need new boilers was due “no bid contracts� and “somebody’s friend getting the contract� respectively. It’s unfortunate the members of the building committee who worked years over seeing this enormous project are being disparaged without one single fact or detail to substantiate the claims, just blanket statements and innuendo. Frankly, I expect more from a former state representative. On another note: If Ms. McCarty thought we North

To the editor: I am very glad the Board of Education upheld the decision of Sara Querfeld and Ed Gomeau, and followed the advice of the board’s legal counsel, which allowed for the opportunity of live, open, unscripted debates to take place in our schools on Monday, Sept. 28 (at the North Haven High School) and on Friday, Oct. 2, (at the North Haven Middle School). Our schools are a place of learning for people of all ages, not just the young children, which is why the office for Adult Education is located in the high school. And although the offer to debate was rejected, nevertheless this still proved to be a wonderful educational opportunity for the whole community to learn something about the candidates. Many of our high school seniors are excited about being able to vote for the first time, and it would have been wrong to deny them the opportunity to see democracy in action in their own school. Their learning should not be limited to textbooks.

Mike Freda is a true proponent of open government, and offered three such open forums in order to allow for everyone’s busy schedules. To my knowledge, these are the only opportunities that have been provided where the public can ask questions of the candidates. (The third opportunity was at the Recreation Center on Monday, Oct. 5.) Three main topics were chosen, allowing you to learn about Mr. Freda’s position on these important issues. They were: Economic Development, Education, and Town Services. Anyone not fortunate enough to receive NHTV, will unfortunately miss the opportunity to see the videos which will be aired on NHTV in the coming weeks, courtesy of the Committee to Elect Mike Freda. However, if you do receive NHTV, look for these “Open Forums� to see democracy in action. Donna M. Spose North Haven

venience store with gas pumps. There’s no parkway rest stops for many miles, so the public will appreciate a commuter parking lot with convenience store with gas pumps built to their specifications in a designated area on the property. The state could lease the building with gas pumps to an operator. The state will have control and oversee activity on the property. Traffic will flow more freely in this area, especially around 5 p.m. when traffic gets heavy. This new convenience store is a pit stop, rest stop, parking lot, place to buy gas and food — very convenient for commuters. The best part is that it enables the state to make necessary improvements to improve traffic flow in the area.

I suggest that we donate the property to the State of Connecticut. Let them clean it up. This saves North Haven from footing this big bill. This property abuts the southbound entrance/exit ramp to the Merritt Parkway. Part of the state’s infrastructure improvements involves creating acceleration lanes onto the parkway. The partial use of the Public Works property enables the state to accomplish this task. To donate the property to the state, will be well received, I am sure.

“All the other towns are looking at this,” he said. “There are over 100 towns in the state that have the town meeting form of government, and everybody had budget cuts.” “Over 1,000 peoples’ jobs were eliminated in these towns,” Parrett continued. “These people see this and say ‘hey, I want a town meeting to get my job back.’ I’m trying to stop this kind of thing.” Parrett pointed out that although Preston got its town meeting in Morris v. Congdon, the vote to eliminate the unwanted position was defeated. Burns could find legal success only to have his position voted down at referendum. “I’ve said it before,” Parrett said. “This man is on the road to no where. He is not going to get his job back out of this.” Parrett also reiterated his belief that because Burns has not yet exhausted his union grievance options, he does not yet have the need to bring the case to court. Walsh said that he expects to be told the date of the writ of mandamus hearing within the next few weeks.

ing so on several occasions. “We could have an unfunded position,” Parrett said. “And Burns would be no farther along than he is now.” Town meeting, Parrett said, can only subtract from the budget, as it did in Morris v. Congdon, when it voted on whether to eliminate a position, and, in essence, reduce the budget. Should town meeting wish to add to the budget or transfer expenditures within the budget, Parrett said, it can only do so with the Board of Finance’s recommendation. “Section 707-C of the town charter states that it does not allow expenditure transfer without the recommendation and approval of the Board of Finance,” Parrett said, “and the Board of Finance has already expressively voted against funding the position.” Ultimately confident in his arguments against Burns, Parrett is disappointed that the case will cause additional legal fees. “I had hoped to avoid more costs and expenses for all parties,” he said. Parrett feared the precedent that would be set should Burns succeed.

Funds Continued from page 1

The cruiser rental fees are placed into the police cruiser account, which is a part of the larger outside-duty account. The cruiser account is then used to cover the cruisers’ maintenance costs. DiCarlo said that the cruiser account was established seven to eight years ago. “It was established because of the wear and tear of the cars,” he said. “In practice, I can draw from that account to request new equipment for the cruisers. I can buy new light bars, sirens, whatever the car needs.” DiCarlo said that he had e-

mailed the town finance department to ascertain the balance of police cruiser fund on Sept. 30. He had wished to use funds from the account to outfit newly purchased police cruisers. At the Board of Selectmen meeting, the chief of police said that the finance department replied that this account had been “swept clean.” “The most disturbing thing is the lack of communication,” DiCarlo said at the meeting. “I was not informed prior to this morning that this money has vanished, whether for a legitimate reason or not.” At the meeting, Swinkowski said that accounts with large amounts of inactive funds, like the police outside-

duty account, are typically swept into the general fund. First Selectman Janet McCarty said that the Board of Finance had swept many similar special accounts into the general fund. McCarty added that the cruiser funding still exists. “It will still be available to police,” she said. Public speaker Caren Genovese asked whether this was common practice for the Board of Finance to sweep such accounts. “They had to go through the Board of Finance to get the funding anyways,” Swinkowski responded. Genovese suggested that department heads such as DiCarlo should have been notified that they were losing account funds to the general

fund. “Fair enough,” Swinkowski responded. When contacted, Board of Finance chairman Dean Volain said that although he does not recall the specific police cruiser account, he is not surprised that the special account was swept back into the general fund. “These special accounts are set up for something ongoing,” Volain said. “If they end up with a large surplus, and there is nothing in the budget for that surplus, I believe it is appropriate for them to be put into the general fund so the town can decide where the money goes.” “Once the year is over, there is money left over,” Volain added of the accounts. “The money is not

there for department use.” Volain said that while Swinkowski physically performed the act of moving the accounts within the last few weeks, he believed that the Board of Finance had voted on the measure around the time that the 2009-10 budget was created. In creating the budget, Volain said, the Board of Finance must look for sources of funding, and under spent, dormant special accounts are utilized for funding. “It had to have been around when we approved the budget,” Volain said. “When we put the budget together, we included transfers from those special funds.” “Money goes into the funds, and sometimes it just sits there,” Volain added. “There’s no point to it just sitting there.” When contacted after the meeting, Swinkowski said that while money had been swept from the police outside-duty fund and cruiser fund, neither had been completely emptied. “Chief DiCarlo thought that we had swept the whole thing, but we had not,” he said. “The outside-duty account is one thing that is going to be swept, but not in its entirety.” “A good portion of it will be swept into the general fund,” he added. Swinkowski said that the outside-duty account had swelled to $300,000, which was a figure he said was much larger than necessary. “There are accounts that keep building up their balances,” Swinkowski said. “They continue to build higher and higher balances and the money becomes dormant.” Swinkowski said that the outside-duty account will be left with approximately $20,000 to $25,000. Of that, he added, $5,000 to $10,000 will be for the police cruiser account. “That seems to be about right,” Swinkowski said of the adjusted accounts. “We have to have enough money to pay the officers before we bill the contractors.” When contacted, DiCarlo said that he was still distressed over the communication breakdown in the matter. “I’m disappointed that I

Soccer team loses versus Sheehan despite good play By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

See Soccer, page 23

North Haven boys soccer players Vince Jakiela, Rich Mauri, and Kevin Bucknall try to stop a Sheehan advance at the Oct. 2 game. Despite being in control of their game, the Indians lost to Sheehan 3-2.


North Haven boys’ soccer was defeated by Sheehan 3-2 in an Oct. 2 match up in which both teams pursued their first win of the season. The Indians certainly did nothing to lose the game, as they seemed to be in control throughout the match up, despite the final score. “We can’t seem to catch a break,” said head coach Federico Fiondella after the loss. “We came out to play and it was a tough battle.” The Friday night was cool and four dozen spectators representing both sides attended the game at the North Haven High School sports complex field. The Indians did bring intensity early, pressing on offense from the opening whistle. North Haven struck within the first three minutes of the first 40-minute half. Indian midfielder Marlon Rafael streaked downfield with the ball after a great feed from midfield. As the Sheehan defense swarmed upon Rafael, he wisely passed the ball right before the net to teammate Rich Mauri, who angled the shot into the left corner for the 1-0 lead. The communication on both teams was superb, as players constantly shouted advice and encouragement to each other on the fields during play. Sheehan’s Nick Taglianetti and Ryan Terranga pushed into Indian territory, while North Haven’s Keegan Hanlon, Kevin Anderson, and Steven Albert pushed right back. At the 32-minute mark, Indian goalkeeper Chris Musco leapt into the air and plucked an ascending ball from between two Sheehan attackers looking for a header. North Haven defensemen Justin Hoffman, Istvan Kanyo, and senior captain R.T. Iadarola also made excellent clears throughout the competition. The ball remained in Sheehan territory for the majority of the first 20 minutes, and

North Haven was rewarded for their tenacity at the 28minute mark. In front of the goal, Indian senior captain Marquis Goodwin passed to Antonio Russo, who put the ball in the back corner to make it a 2-0 lead. Despite the setback, Sheehan did not lose focus. The visitors began to take drives deep into North Haven territory, but at first to no avail. Kanyo made a great header to deflect a Sheehan shot on goal at the 26-minute mark. Minutes later, Sheehan defender Mario Yepez found himself alone and near the ball in front of net. However, Musco raced out and corralled the ball before Yepez could attack. Sheehan continued to press. Erik Tomin of the visiting squad sliced an off-balance shot that just limped by the side of the North Haven goal. Yepez and Sheehan’s Jordan Browstein barely missed on a connection before goal. However, the visitor’s finally struck at the 21-minute mark. Off of a Sheehan corner kick, Yepez raced into the building scrum before the net and headed the ball directly into the grass. The ball violently bounced off the turf and past Musco for to make it 2-1. North Haven missed on two great opportunities to respond. At the 18-minute mark, Indian defender Vince Jakiela broke away downfield with the ball, but Sheehan’s goalkeeper Luigi Tancredi snapped it up from the attacker. Moments later, Rafael launched a 40-foot rocket that was barely bumped over the goal by Tancredi. The home team continued to take more shots and produce more deep drives than the visitors over the second half of the game. Unfortunately, North Haven had difficulty finishing off their drives, while Sheehan would find success once more. On a direct free kick

Youth football goes 3-1 in week six action

The North Haven fourth grade team improved to 4-1 with a 12-6 victory over previously unbeaten Amity in week six action. The entire North Haven defense played a tremendous game which was led by Gabe Martinez and Zack Orth. North Haven then traveled to Old Saybrook to pick up an impressive 24-0 win. Martinez started the scoring with a 2-yard run to put North Haven up 6-0. Martinez also added an interception return for a touchdown. Mark Montano and Zack Orth capped the scoring. On defense, Noah Pastore led all players with six tackles. Ben Fisher, Jake LaFond, Jake Porto, and Kalid Saidi had solid games to help pave the way to victory. North Haven will travel to Cheshire next week. The fifth grade team was idle and will face Branford at home. The sixth grade team (5-0) remained undefeated with a 34-12 victory over Cheshire. Michael Montano led the

way with two touchdowns and two kicking extra points. Conner Suraci added two touchdowns, one on a kickoff return. Emadi Okwousa also added a touchdown. The team will face Amity at home next week. The seventh grade team lost 22-19 to Clinton to drop to 4-2. J.B Boggs had a 72yard kick-off return, and threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Tommy Gallagher. Jay Jones had a 86-yard run for the Indians final score. On the defensive side of the ball, Michael McKenna had an interception. The North Haven eighth grade team split the two games they played this week, losing to Madison 14-6 and winning against North Branford 25-6, putting their record at 3-3. In the Madison game, the eighth grade Indians played their hearts out in a thriller of a game. After going down 8-0 on Madison’s opening drive, the game went into a defensive battle until North Haven received

the second half kickoff and went right down and scored. Ethan Suraci and Christian Black each had big runs. Suraci ultimately completed the drive with a touchdown. The point after touchdown was blocked leaving the score 8-6 in favor of Madison. The teams traded possessions for the remainder of the game until a Madison interception returned for a touchdown sealed the game. In the second game of the week, North Haven won 25-6 over North Branford. Black and Suraci ran for first quarter touchdowns to put the eighth grade Indians up 12-0. Evan Manameit threw a 25yard touchdown pass to Brandon Carfora in the second and North Haven had a 18-0 lead at the half. In the third quarter, Black scored his second touchdown with a 15-yard run to increase the Indian lead to 25-0. Jay Roetting led the defense and Chris Brockett had an interception. —Submitted by Ed Tantorski

awarded in front of the goal, Yepez laced a shot around a wall of North Haven players at eight-minute mark. The shot continued into the corner of the goal to even the score. The game would remain tied as both teams took a break for halftime. The opening minutes of the second half continued the trend from the end of the first 40 minutes. North Haven’s Kevin Anderson banked a shot off of a goalpost, while Indian Keegan Hanlon missed a direct free kick. Sheehan capitalized early in the second half as they did to end the first. Sheehan’s Justin Doehr broke free with the ball and had just the goalie to beat for a score. Deftly drawing the goalkeeper out from the net, Doehr lifted a shot over Musco’s head to take the lead 3-2 at the 32minute mark. The teams traded midfield possessions for the next couple minutes, until Russo was fed the ball before the net. As he charged the goal, Tancredi rushed out to halt the North Haven shot. In a scary moment for both teams, the players crashed full force into one another – the ball squirted away from the collision and bounced to the left of the goal. Russo was quick to get up after the crash, but collapsed after limping a few steps. Thankfully, the North Haven senior was on his feet and recovered several minutes later. Tancredi, however, remained on his back for some time, wincing in obvious pain. Fortunately, after some time, the goalkeeper got to his feet and play resumed. North Haven continued to

find ample opportunities, but all were ultimately foiled. Rafael missed another longrange rocket when left open in Sheehan territory. The ball soared over the opponents’ goal. At the 19-minute mark, Hanlon barely misplaced a header before the net after a great pass from Albert. Minutes later, Albert planted a shot directly on the top goal post of the Sheehan goal. The ball shot directly upwards and came back down into the goalkeeper’s arms. The ball remained mainly in North Haven control for the next 10 minutes, but as was the game’s theme, all of the Indians’ drives ended in the hands of the goalkeeper or as cleared kicks by thankful Sheehan defenders. With five minutes remaining in the game, North Haven was awarded a handball kick 50-feet from the goal. The Indians attempted a short kick and tried to gain ground, but Sheehan sniffed out the play and ended the threat. Over the game’s final minutes, Sheehan went heavy on defense and stymied countless North Haven drives. The visitors acted as a backboard, continually deflecting Indian attacks into the home team’s territory. Finally, three short whistle blasts blew and North Haven fell to 0-4-2. With the victory, Sheehan improved to 1-5-0. Fiondella thought the game was an equally hardfought match that simply ended in Sheehan’s favor. “We tried switching up our styles, but the other team seemed to score as well,” he said. “We lost a lot of balls to their goalkeeper.” Fiondella thought both teams played well. “That hit from the Sheehan player off of the free kick was nice,” he said. “We set up our walls quickly, which was nice.”

was not consulted as a department head,” he said. “I would like to have input.” As of Oct. 2, DiCarlo remained unaware of the balances of both accounts. “I’m still waiting to hear back,” he said.

Swinkowski admitted error in the finance department’s communication. “I’m not sure whose responsibility it was to notify Chief DiCarlo,” he said when contacted, “but somebody should have had the courtesy.” Swinkowski added that the future balances of both police accounts will have to be set by the Board of Finance.

“If you want an informational, that we can do,” McCarty replied. In response, Freda said, “This board meeting should be a repository for all information in town – from all boards and commissions.

Any question should be answered by us.” Leahy said that being told to ask questions after the selectman meeting, or at the appropriate meeting, was in fact an answer. “You may not like the answer, but if you’re requesting the Board of Finance, they’re not all here,” he said. “We have a balanced budget – we should all be celebrating.”

Friday, October 9, 2009 — The North Haven Citizen

Patriots and Scoundrels Editor’s note: The North Haven Citizen will feature a column written by resident Paul Colella. Patriots and Scoundrels will tell the history of North Haven during the period between 1789 to 1850. Narrated by a fictional character – Charity Chastine – the column will tell the story of important historical figures and events of the town. To contact Paul Colella send letters to 460 Washington Ave., North Haven, CT 06473, or email him at Part XXII Fear and uncertainty now plagued me as I relentlessly pondered what horrific events are yet to take place. At the present moment, I was standing frozen from shock while holding a sobbing Charles as we stared at three men, who after taking a violent fall, remained still at the bottom of the stairs. A few moments later, Dr. Greenville appeared and frantically hurried down the stairs to offer his assistance while Mrs. Kensington emerged from the library with a startled countenance. She shouted for assistance, and then a handful of servants came into the hall. “Good gracious, what has happened to these men,” inquired Mrs. Kensington. “It was a terrible accident. Mr. Higgins and Charles were making their way to

the stairs when the man in bandages came from out of the shadows and attacked Mr. Higgins. I grabbed a hold of Charles, and in the meantime, Lt. Bradford appeared and he tried desperately to save Mr. Higgins but a struggle occurred, and within seconds, all three of them fell down the stairs,” I recalled in an exasperated voice. Lt. Bradford began to stir as did the bandaged man, but Mr. Higgins did not move. Dr. Greenville hastily instructed the servants to take the bandaged man into one of the rooms on the first floor. Then he examined the lieutenant who rose to his feet and did not seem to be injured, but was a bit stunned from the ordeal. Mrs. Kensington instructed one of the servants to assist the lieutenant into the library and then she insisted that I take Charles to his room and remain there with him. Dr. Greenville attended to Mr. Higgins, who I had a terrible feeling was not as fortunate as the others. Mrs. Kensington then went into the library and closed the door. Meanwhile at Singleton Lodge, a lethal Lydia Johnson was dismayed not to see the crushed bodies of JeanLuc and Louise lying on the ground among the shattered pieces of the stone statue that she deliberately toppled

over the balcony. Angered and disappointed by the failed results of her evil deed, she cunningly retreated into Madame Monnerat’s room. Upon entering, she heard Madame Monnerat softly but distinctly uttering Colonel Parker’s name. As she went closer, Madame Monnerat without warning opened her eyes, but remained stationary. Lydia removed the extra pillow from behind Madame Monnerat’s head and as she held the pillow in both her hands and was about to cover Madame Monnerat’s face, a voice shouted at her from the entrance of the room. “What are you doing to my mistress?” A surprised Lydia turned about and saw that it was Louise Bourget standing in the room. Although she was fuming inside to see Louise alive, she deceitfully hid her emotions and solemnly explained that she was attempting to make Madame Monnerat comfortable. In an effort to get Lydia to take her leave, Louise informed her that a visitor named JeanLuc Tessier had arrived and he wished to speak to the person in charge during the absence of Monsieur Monnerat. Lydia put down the pillow, and then left the room while smiling at Louise with a devilish look in her eyes. Outside Kensington Hall,

a lovely Honoria Noble was lying on the ground trying to recover from the painful sounds of a hideous laughter that was festering in her head. As she tried to get up, a well manicured and strong hand reached out to her. As she reached for the hand, Honoria found herself staring at a tall and well dressed gentleman with dark hair and sideburns. “Let me help you to your feet, my dear lady. My name is Ethan Fairchild, and I was on my way to pay a call to Mrs. Kensington when I saw you lying on the ground.” Honoria rose to her feet and graciously thanked the gentleman for his assistance. Then she told him her name, and begged him not to enter Kensington Hall. She became restless with fright and asked frantically if he would take her away. Feeling sympathy and concern for the lovely lady he had just become acquainted with, Ethan escorted Honoria to his carriage and then he instructed his driver to leave. Inside Kensington Hall, I had managed to put a shaken Charles to bed. While he was sleeping, I went to the window and I saw Foster and Jennings carrying Mr. Higgins’ body to the stables. Then Mrs. Kensington entered and she whispered to me to step out into the hall where she calmly explained

that Mr. Higgins did not survive the fall, and his death was an unfortunate accident brought on by his own carelessness. She also informed me that Lt. Bradford and the other man were recovering nicely, and she sent word to the authorities of what had happened. My eyes filled with tears as sorrow embraced me. Mrs. Kensington told me not to mourn for Mr. Higgins and remain complacent for Charles’ sake. “Mr. Higgins was a guilt ridden and tormented old man who never forgave himself for his ill treatment of his daughter Elizabeth. Now he is at peace, and we will no longer be troubled by his attempts to abduct our precious Charles,” replied Mrs. Kensington insensitively. She then told me to go to the library to see Lt. Bradford who was asking for me. I wiped my tears away and hurried to the lieutenant. After I had left, Mrs. Kensington quietly tip-toed to Charles’ bedside where she watched him sleep while whispering in his ear that he was the heir to the Kensington fortune, and she would teach him how to become the master of the game. Back at Singleton Lodge, Lydia went into the drawing room where she came face to face with Jean-Luc Tessier,

the man she tried to kill just a short time ago. Jean-Luc introduced himself and then inquired about Monsieur Monnerat. Lydia explained that Monsieur Monnerat was not at home, and she was in charge of the household during his absence. Jean-Luc was charming and cunning, as was Lydia, as they engaged in conversation. There was no mention of the fallen statue. Their encounter was interrupted suddenly by Monsieur Monnerat’s arrival home. Upon his arrival, Monsieur Monnerat called out to Lydia who turned her back on Jean-Luc to greet her employer. When Monsieur Monnerat entered the drawing room Lydia smiled at him, while a calm and calculating Jean-Luc stood tall holding a dagger in his hands behind his back. At Kensington Hall, the lieutenant was upset about

Mr. Higgins’ demise and blamed himself. He confided in me that Mr. Higgins reminded him of his own father in that they both lost their daughters to unforeseen and tragic circumstances, and in the end, they died with broken hearts. As I tried to offer comfort with some kind words, Lt. Bradford politely excused himself and went for a walk in the gardens alone. Feeling a bit unwanted, I returned to my room where on a small table next to my bed, I found a note and it read: You must leave Kensington Hall immediately for there is danger and death residing here. If you remain, you shall end up like old man Higgins – dead. Panic and fear enveloped me and I fled from my room and hurried to find Mrs. Kensington, who I was told by a servant was downstairs in the library waiting for the authorities to arrive. As I approached, the door to the library was slightly open so I peeked in and I could see Mrs. Kensing-

ton speaking to Simon Blackwell, who I remembered meeting at the Monnerat’s ball. I knew it was improper to eavesdrop, but their conversation intrigued me. “My dear Mrs. Kensington, I have returned to inform you that at this very moment your son-in-law, Colonel Benedict Parker, is being apprehended and will be charged for the attack upon Madame Monnerat and the murders of William Singleton and that tavern maid Hannah,” said Simon with great satisfaction. “As much as I despise my son-in-law for his many indiscretions, insults, and injuries upon my family and I, he is not a murderer. His conviction and execution will blacken the good name of Kensington while you, the true murdering villain, elude justice and take my daughter Charlotte as your prize,” said Mrs. Kensington with disgust and vexation. “I believe I have made a grave judgment in error when making this deal with

you,” she added. Simon laughed, and then ridiculed Mrs. Kensington for her weak moment of compassion for the colonel. He then proceeded to remind her of Charlotte’s well-being while vindictively dangling my doll in her face. To be continued…

Coming next week... Patriots and Scoundrels Part 23 Who really killed William Singleton? What will Charlotte’s fate be?
