Column – local letter carriers union responds to post office changes By Vincent J. Mase

In Tuesday’s municipal election, North Haven Republican candidates achieved a full sweep, similar to the local party’s dominant results from two years ago. Incumbent Republican First Selectman Michael Freda cruised to reelection with 5,021 votes, against 958 for Democrat challenger Walter Spader and 428 for independent hopeful Gary Amato. “This is a great honor,” Freda said Nov. 8 at Republican Election Night headquarters at Washington Avenue’s Fantasia, moments after his victory became apparent. “What I like so much about

As president of Branch 19, National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), I attended the Oct. 25 town meeting at North Haven’s Recreation Center. I am responding to the North Haven Citizen article on the meeting, published Friday, Oct. 28., as reported by the paper’s managing editor Kyle Swartz. In his article, Swartz quoted a United States Postal Service (USPS) official that the “USPS is facing an $8 billion deficit.” In my opinion, this is not an accurate statement and is misleading to the public.

In 2006, Congress enacted legislation that forced the USPS to pre-fund $75 billion toward 75 years in advance for health benefits for retirees and required the USPS to pay it all within 10 years. Therefore, the USPS has had to pay between $5.5 billion to $5.8 billion each year since 2006. This is why the USPS has lost money each year since 2006. Also, the USPS is the only organization required by Congress to pre-fund 75 years worth of health benefits into the future. No oth-

With scoring barrage, NHHS football captures division title By Kevin Pataky Citizen Contributor

talent in the State’s Class L Division, the Indans would have to win their last two games and get some help to qualify. Strapped with poor field possession early in this game, the Indains were still able to score in the first quarter on a four-yard pass play from Senior quarterback Joe Schwab to senior fullback Mark Zurlis, who made a diving catch. Senior Jake Scafariello kicked the extra point and North Haven had a 7-0 lead. Near the end of the first quarter, North Haven started a time-consuming, 98-yard drive which culminated with a nine-yard run for a touchdown by Schwab. The snap on the PAT was low but Spencer Oakes scooped it up and See Football, page 29

Senior and co-captain quarterback Joe Schwab completed 5 of 7 passes for 86 yards and 2 touchdowns.

‘Marijuana Factory,’ burglary in recent police reports By Lieutenants Kevin Glenn and Stanley Lofquist

A 20-year-old North Haven man was arrested for burglarizing an occupied residence on Nov. 4. At 11:15 a.m. last Friday, an 88-year-old woman, who resides on Hartford Turnpike, reported to authorities that a man had entered her home through an unlocked door. The homeowner confronted the man, who then left the residence. As police arrived, a man matching the descrip-

tion given by the victim was found a short distance from the location of the alleged burglary. The man attempted to run from officers, but was taken into custody a short time later. Christopher Cote was charged with Burglary Second Degree, and Interfering With Police. Cote is currently held on a $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior court.

——Last month, town police shut down what they considered to be a “Marijuana Factory” operation in a rental home on Kings Highway. On October 25, an investigation undertaken in part by Detective Mark Iannone led to two arrests. Officers were called to a Kings Highway address for what appeared to be a large-scale Marijuana Factory. Found on the residence were several UV grow lamps, irrigation systems, drying racks, potting tools and cannabis processing equip-

had the poor janitor get on his hands and knees to scrub the floor if his efforts with a mop were unsuccessful, added Petrucci. “Miss Dexter was like a drill sergeant and I was always on task. I liked my job and did not want to lose it,” Petrucci said. “Some of the girls who started with me soon left because they could not deal with Miss Dexter and her demands.” “She would criticize our attire by telling us our dresses were too short, our shoes were scuffed, our hair was not properly brushed, or our stockings were ripped,” she continued. “My father told me that Miss Dexter was a good role model and was preparing me for the working world.”

dollars in a savings account and keep the remaining five dollars for personal expenses,” she said. “I don’t believe young people today would work for ten dollars a week. They would think it was slave labor.” “Nonetheless, I was grateful and budgeted myself according to my means,” she added. After two months into her job, a new supervisor by the name of Miss Cordelia Dexter took charge. She was a tall rigid woman who rarely cracked a smile, and had little tolerance for nonsense and inept workers. She made certain that silence was heard throughout the entire building and all shelves were properly stacked, and the library was neat as a pin. She




The 1950’s was a decade of prosperity. President Eisenhower was in the White House and the suburbs grew. During this time, a high school student, Laura Petrucci, spent her days working part-time at the library in her neighborhood. Besides shelving and binding books, assisting with the card catalogue and helping library patrons, Laura would become influenced by her supervisor, who would be a mentor and friend. This is her story: “Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to read books. I remember the first time my mother brought me to the library that was three blocks from where we lived, and my eyes were fixed on the many shelves filled with books and more books,” recalled Petrrucci. “I left my mother’s side and walked through the library scouting and looking at all the shelves. We would go to the library at least once a week.” Petrrucci explained that her parents were avid readers. Her father read newspapers, magazines and encyclopedias while her mother read biographies and the classics. “Every night after supper, we would sit in the living room and read while other families, including my friends and their parents would gather around the television or the radio for entertainment. My father would

sit in a rocking chair, smoking his pipe and reading the newspaper, while my mother and I sat on the couch with pillows supporting our backs reading books we had checked-out at the library,” recalled Petrucci. “It was my family’s favorite pastime.” “When I turned sixteen, my parents told me that I could get a part-time job as long as I kept up with my studies,” she added. “I didn’t drive so I had to find employment not far from home. One day, while visiting the library, one of the librarians told me about a few positions that were available. Having good references and being a familiar face and devoted patron, I was hired. I was thrilled to be working at a place near and dear to my heart.” Petrucci was very happy at the library and she worked diligently, filing, shelving books, assisting patrons, binding books in the basement and tidying up the children’s department. Petrruci’s biggest joy was receiving her weekly paycheck. “Every Friday we got paid and I would take my paycheck of ten dollars to the bank where I would put five

After leaving Mr. Preston’s office in New Haven, Charity and Lt. Bradford returned to N o r t h Colella Haven. They stopped at Andrews’ Tavern for a light meal. The lieutenant thought that Charity seeing Mrs. Andrews and Jesse may help to raise her spirits. Mrs. Andrews was

delighted as always to see them. They sat down and told her what had happened. After they had finished speaking, Mrs. Andrews looked at Charity and the lieutenant with a solemn expression and reminded them that Grace Collins never trusted Lydia Johnson and suspected her of somehow being responsible for the murders of Elizabeth and Edmund. “Lydia was always lurking around the tavern and hovering over Mr. Higgins,” said Mrs. Andrews. “Grace expressed on numerous occa-

sion, that Lydia’s behavior warranted suspicion. I wished I had listened to Grace. She was a wise woman and a good friend. Oh, how I miss her.” Charity reached over and gave Mrs. Andrews a hug as her eyes filled with water and she tried to refrain from crying. Charity told Mrs. Andrews that although there had been great pain and loss, it was now time for healing and comfort. Mrs. Andrews shook her head in agreement, and then went into the back room to get the food while Charity and Lt. Brad-

ford sat in silence. Then Jesse Andrews entered the tavern, and upon seeing Charity and the lieutenant, went up to their table. He had some exciting news that he wanted to share. After waiting for his mother to join them, he said he had just heard from Mr. Pierpont and Reverend Trumbull that the selectman had signed a legal contract allowing for the construction and expansion of public roads and bridges in North Haven. “The building of roads and bridges will attract workers to our town, and with better roads, more tradesmen and travelers will come which will help our town to prosper financially. I imagine that we will be busy here at the tavern,” said an elated Jesse. “North Haven may even become a booming city like Boston and Philadelphia, or like New Haven.” Mrs. Andrews smiled at her son and told him not to be overzealous about North Haven’s future, but she expressed her interest in the

news as did the lieutenant and Charity. Jesse was too excited to sit and visit with them, so he went to share the news with his friends. Lt. Bradford and Charity enjoyed their meal while visiting with Mrs. Andrews and then returned to Singleton Lodge. In their quarters at lodging in New Haven, Lord and Lady Winfield were enjoying their afternoon tea. Lady Winfield had Mrs. Kensington’s letter on her mind. She was thinking about Mrs. Kensington’s comment about possessing a priceless item belonging to the Winfield family. Then it came to Lady Winfield that it had to be the Winfield Diamond. She recalled that her friend had always talked about the diamond in an obsessive way, especially when they attended the gatherings at St. James’ Court. Lady Winfield took a turn about the room while flashbacks of past conversations See Patriots, page 31

ond selectman role. As third selectman goes to the minority party’s top vote-earner, Tuesday’s results would put Spader’s Democrat running mate Alan Sturz on the board. Sturz defeated Spader, 989 votes to 958. “Sturtz is going to take the seat,” said North Haven Democratic Town Committee Chairman Peter Criscuolo on Nov. 9. “As of last night, he was going to take it.” “I want to congratulate Michael Freda and his team for a job well done,” Criscuolo added. “Both sides ran a very upscale, clean campaign. I’m proud of both sides.” Criscuolo became a repeat winner himself Tuesday night, gaining another Fire Commissioner term, which will see him through 20 years in that elected municipal position. “I want to thank the professional firefighters union in North Haven, for all of them coming out and supporting me,” Criscuolo said. “They’re a true brotherhood and I’m proud to be part of that family. I especially want to thank Ridge Road volunteer captain Tim Mayer.” Freda said he would welcome Sturtz’s addition to the Board of Selectman. “My goal will be to listen to the minority party’s point of view,” Freda said Nov. 9. “I’m looking forward to working with Alan, as I would have been

with Walt. My goal is to make sure that Alan is included in all information and I would like to see him work on projects together with Tim [Doheny].” Amato, the independent candidate for first selectman, was glad for support he received on ballots. “I’m very happy — we got 428 people,” he said on Nov. 9. “That’s a ‘thank you’ for fighting for the people of North Haven. I want to thank all of them.” “I think this election shows that the Republicans have their base in town, they have their people, they make their phone calls on Election Night, and that’s how they keep rolling in town,” Amato added. “My race was just me and Mike [Mele]. We had no campaign. We did this all on our own. I’m very proud of Mike. It was an honor to run with him.” Polling turnout was approximately 42 percent of registered town voters, according to Registrar of Voters Patty Jackson-Marshall. Below are the full 2011 North Haven election results, as provided by town hall’s Registrars of Voters office: First Selectman: Republican Michael Freda — 5,021 total votes Democrat Walter Spader — 958 Independent Gary Amato — 428

er public agency or private company has had such a mandate placed upon their organization by Congress. In his article, Swartz quotes another postal official at the meeting when she stated that “the recessionary economy, shifts in personal communication away from physical mail to electronic devices has taken a massive toll on the USPS.” I believe this is also an inaccurate statement that is misleading the public. What this USPS official failed to state is that, if the USPS did not have to pay to pre-fund the health benefits for retirees for the next 75 years, then the USPS actually earned a profit of $611 million over the past four years. That’s right — the USPS actually earned a profit of $611 million. Therefore, there is absolutely no reason for the USPS to close any of the post offices throughout the country. Keep in mind that the USPS earned a $611 million

profit over the past four years even though the entire country was suffering through the worst recessionary period in American history since the Great Depression. What these USPS officials also failed to tell the audience is that the USPS does not receive any subsidies from the Federal Government. There have been no bailouts from the government and, more importantly, the USPS does not use any taxpayers’ money. The USPS relies solely on the sale of metered postage, stamps and other products to provide mail service to the American public. Not one cent of taxpayer money is given to the USPS for any of its postal operations. I find it incredulous that these high-ranking postal officials at this town meeting were not completely up front with all the facts when they spoke to North Haven citizens in attendance. The only thing these postal officials did was attempt to frighten the audience by sputtering bad news and never attempting to explain all the positive progress that the USPS has

State Column

Electric grid: top infrastructure need By Chris Powell

Anger is as thick as the wood smoke in the air as Connecticut coped with the damage done by the freak October snowstorm that brought trees down on utility lines, roads, and houses in the northwestern half of the state, maybe the state’s worst natural disaster since the hurricane flooding of more than 50 years ago. Nobody was ready enough - from Connecticut Light & Power Co. and state government, which didn’t have enough repair crews ready, to the people themselves, many of whom neglected to fill their gas tanks, stock up on batteries, and insist that utility companies trim the trees near the wires on their own lots. A Manchester man who complained three years ago about branches overhanging wires in his neigh-

borhood noted ruefully this week that his complaint was ignored and now the branches and their tree have fallen and taken wires down. But then nobody could have expected something this bad, nor so soon after the tropical storm that caused similar damage in August. Back then there was consensus that more tree trimming was necessary, but it had hardly begun, and the trimming needed to prepare for the sort of storm just experienced wouldn’t be trimming at all. It would be clear cutting everything within reach of a utility line, making Connecticut’s streetscape look like the Great Plains. In the end any negligence, real and imagined, is small compared to the scope of the disaster. The first selectman in Somers, a rural town, inventoried damage there and

reported eight electrical transformers destroyed and 24 damaged, 106 damaged utility poles, and 289 trees down on utility lines. Such damage couldn’t be repaired quickly even by an army of utility and road crews - and many towns faced similar or worse situations. The first selectman added that Somers was getting no help from state government in clearing state roads in town and so was doing all the work itself. This wasn’t because the state Department of Transportation was loafing but because it was overwhelmed and busy elsewhere. Surrounded by downed trees, Connecticut now has to reconsider its streetscape or hold its peace. Even now utility lines throughout the state run under or even right See Electric, next page

Letters to the Editor Thoughtfulness

To the editor: A public heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Joe and his four legged copilot, Ruby, for helping me and my neighbor across the street Sunday morning after our Autumn Nor’easter. While chipping away at the mound of frozen snow at the end of our driveway, a pickup truck approached with a plow. Stepping out of the way, the plow went down and — in an instant — the mound of snow was pushed out of the way. Your unselfish assistance renews a person’s belief in humanity. Know that my neighbor was probably as delightfully surprised as I. Your thoughtfulness should not go unrewarded — bless you. Jean Hilton North Haven

State editorial

Hold CL&P’s feet to the fire It’s time to hold Connecticut Light and Power’s feet to the fire. (Especially after so many have been left out in the cold.) While CL&P unquestionably faced a Herculean task in returning electricity to 800,000-plus customers who lost it in the Oct. 29 snowstorm, company reaction times and protocols were abysmal. Thus, legislators, including House Speaker and Meriden Rep. Chris Donovan, are serving as vanguard for change by suggesting actions which would regulate utilities’ emergency situation responses, with fines for ineptitude. Late last month, Winter Storm Alfred dumped several inches of heavy wet snow across Connecticut. In New England, this magnitude and manner of precipitation is unusual for October. Most trees still held full plumage, soon to be encumbered by amassments of sticky snow. With trunks perhaps weakened by turbulent winds during summer Hurricane Irene, many trees or large braches buckled from added weight and, in tumbling, took down power lines in their paths of collapse. That astonishing numbers of lines and utility poles were in position to be damaged is representative of CL&P’s dangerous underuti-

lization of frontline crews. Year-round, company maintenance workers should be driving throughout municipalities to identify and address trees, or other nearby natural elements or structures, which could prove destructive in severe weather conditions. To accomplish this, additional crews should be added to CL&P’s workforce. Consistent precaution is more effective, and palatable, than a scrambled, Keystone Cops-like response. An expanded team of proactive road crews could have prevented extended delays in power restoration. Instead, CL&P struggled to bring in enough out-of-state personnel to augment a toosmall quantity of on-staff manpower. And, according to reports, even after contracted help arrived, many were slow to begin repair work because utility administrators remained in planning and assessment phases. Where was the well-defined, pre-rehearsed strategic plan? Where was the fixed chain of command? As a private company which, in recent years, has seen rising levels of executive employee compensation, CL&P could be considered post-Alfred as fiscally topheavy — too many chiefs and

Spooky spiders By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH The nursery rhyme about itsy, bitsy spiders makes them seem so friendly and cute. Yet spiders probably rank among the “least” favorite insects. Many people are terribly afraid of spiders. Literature and media use the spider’s image in association with dark and evil things, and is a particularly popular Halloween decoration. Yet despite their sinister reputation, spiders are an insect with a very important beneficial ecological role. Spiders are predators that are on the constant lookout for food. Their favorite food is not the human being, but rather it is other insects. Many spiders are actually “shy” and will only bite a human if provoked. (For example, they get trapped between your body and clothes.) Although not common, bites from spiders do occur. Physical reactions to bites can vary quite a bit and are dependent on the type of spider, the person’s biochemical makeup, and their general physical condition. Underlying illnesses, such as heart disease or hypertension, may be aggravated by the physical stress of the bite. Most spider bites do not lead to death. However, they are often painful. Initially, the bite may appear as a swollen red lesion, or may have a darkened central core, surrounded by a

“black and blue” type area. It may increase in size over time. If you know you have been bitten by a spider, contact a doctor if it seems to be getting worse. If you capture it (and save it in alcohol), this can be very useful for prescribing treatment. (Even crushed spiders can be identified.) Most spider bites cause only mild reactions. But allergic reactions to spider bites can occur. Signs of an allergic reaction include: swelling of the face or mouth, difficulty swallowing or speaking, chest tightness, wheezing, difficulty breathing, dizziness or fainting, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting. Should any of these symptoms occur, get immediate medical help. Of more than 450 types of spiders in Connecticut, few are deadly. An occasional Black Widow has been identified. The Brown Recluse spider (Loxosceles reclusa) has been suspected to have appeared in Connecticut. The Brown Recluse is not indigenous to this area and can’t survive our cold winters if outdoors. However, it can arrive into homes via packages from warmer climates and survive indoors. The Chiracantheum mildei is a common spider found in Connecticut that can cause

dark (necrotic) lesions on the skin. There are some housekeeping measures you can take to decrease your chances of being bitten. First of all, you can rid corners of webs. Secondly, since spiders will often bite if they get trapped between your body and clothing or bed clothing, shake out such items if they have had contact with the floor. Other strategies include: use gloves when going through boxes of stored papers or clothing, kept in closets or other dark places; vacuum corners of bedrooms and baseboards frequently; freeze boxes of goods or paper (for 48 Hours) suspected of containing brown recluse spiders.

Youth Football performs well in playoffs By Ed Tantorski, Jr.

North Haven Youth Football posted a 5-1 record in the opening round of the shoreline Youth Football Conference playoffs. The North Haven fourth grade A Team played Southington on Oct. 29 in the snowstorm. North Haven won 40-13 to move into the semifinals. The offense had a terrific day. Ethan Okwuosa had three touchdowns and two extra points. Max Rivera added two touchdowns and three extra points in the second half of the game. Donny McInnis ran in the last touchdown of the day. Chris

Hansen ran hard on offense and tackled low on defense. Joe Vitale and Joe Urtel defended the middle of the field to hold Southington to only 13 points. North Haven’s fourth grade B team won its first round of the playoffs, 32-12 against Wallingford. Jeff Williston both had a pair of touchdowns. Joseph Wenzel, RJ Hager and Jaden Watson each added another score. Noah Perillie added two extra points and helped eat up the clock by running up the middle for over 75 yards in the second half to keep Wallingford’s offense off of the field. The defense was led

by Kyle Maruca, RJ Hager, Jack Priebe and Erik Meyer. The offense line, led by Patrick Lillis, Matt Gargano, Colby Stober and Luke Fitzpatrick, opened up huge running lanes all day. North Haven fifth grade lost to Southington 13-12. Noah Pastore scored 55-yard and 60-yard touchdowns. The defense was led by Devan Brokamer, Nick Dodge, Bobby Farley, Jesse Johnson and Alex Ciaburro. North Haven sixth graders defeated Branford 39-26 in the first round of playoff games. Nick Perillie opened the scoring on a seven-yard run on North Haven’s first possession. The Indians then went up 12-0 after a Steven Erbe 95yard touchdown intercepSee Youth, next page

threw it to Zurlis in the end zone for a two-point play to open a 15-0 Indian lead. Foran’s next possession ended with an interception by Schwab, which he re-

turned for a 43-yard touchdown. Scafariello’s kick that followed made the score 22-0. Another failed Lion drive ended with a punt that pinned North Haven at their own two-yard line and the Indians responded with another 98-yard drive, which consumed most of the rest of the half. Schwab scored his third touchdown with a two-yard run and North Haven took a 29-0 lead into the break. The Indians started the third quarter with their starters intact for one more drive, and went down and scored on a 17-yard pass from

Schwab to Senior Matt Manameit. Scafariello’s kick made it 36-0. From this point, North Haven’s junior varsity team got most of the action and backup Senior quarterback Frank Daniele was able to score his first touchdown of the season with a threeyard run which put the Indians up 42-0. Foran finally got on the scoreboard when a bad Indian snap was picked up and returned the other way for a 45-yard touchdown by Michael Pitt. Preventing the NHHS shutout seemed to wake up the Lions, as they went on to score another

tion. Mark Montano put North Haven up 18-0 with a five-yard touchdown run. Branford then scored on a kickoff return to make it 18-6. Mark Montano then ran one in from 30 yards out, and with Erbe’s extra punt kick, the score was it 26-6. Branford scored another touchdown to cut North Haven’s lead 26-12. Zach Orth then scored on a 30-yard run. Erbe capped the scoring with a five-yard touchdown run. The sixthgraders will play East Haven at home in the semifinals this weekend. Seventh-grade Indians defeated Cheshire 40-13 in their playoff opener. Tommy Dodge began the scoring with a 41-yard touchdown run. Max Sullivan also scored twice for the Indians, the first on a 47-yard scoring pass from Jack Steinman and the second on a 37-yard run. Steinman also connected with PJ Saracino on a fiveyard touchdown pass. The Indians’ defense was impressive, with two scores and three interceptions. Paul

downs with 12 carries for 113 yards, an interception return and 5 for 7 passing for 86 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Junior Jalon White chipped in with 10 carries for 81 yards and also completed a 65-yard pass to Senior Spencer Oakes. Senior Mark Zurlis led the defense with 14 tackles and Schwab, Connor McDonald and Mike Halloran had interceptions for North Haven.

The eighth grade North Haven Indians won their first round of the Shoreline Championship Playoffs. North Haven beat Guilford 32-6 with a great team effort. North Haven’s offensive line opened up big holes for Michael Montano, Connor Suraci, Nick Ponzio and Paul Brockamere to run through. North Haven was motivated by the return of Jeremy Imperati, who was injured during the first game of the year. North Haven will play Branford next in the semifinals, with the winner advancing to the finals on Nov. 20. Ed Tantorski, Jr. is the publicity officer for North Haven Youth Football.

Patriots Continued from page 4 with Mrs. Kensington regarding the diamond flooded her memory. Then Lady Winfield recalled the diamond was stolen after the war when Mr. and Mrs. Kensington were in London visiting the King, and their visit was cut short by a terrible fire at one of London’s taverns, which claimed several lives, including Mr. Kensington’s. “Why would Mr. Kensington, a man of his position, patronize a public establishment with a disreputable reputation, and why did Phoebe leave her beloved England and return to a country she despised instead of staying with the people who loved her during her time of mourning?” asked Lady Winfield. Then she came to the surprising realization that perhaps her dear friend left England to hide a secret that had nothing to do with her husband’s death, but rather with the theft of the diamond with which Mr. Kensington and his companions were involved. She also recalled that

Mrs. Kensington was upset with her husband for keeping company with Monsieur Monnerat, the Marquis de Lafayette, Mr. Singleton, and Colonel Parker during their stay in London. She also recalled Mrs. Kensington had harbored feelings of contempt for these men as evident in her correspondence with Lady Winfield following the fire. “She must have the diamond or knows who does,” thought Lady Winfield while clenching her hands into a fist. “How convenient of her to suddenly disappear to somewhere unknown and to have the colossal and devious nerve to arouse my curiosity in her farewell letter Mr. Preston read at Singleton Lodge. Lady Winfield abruptly informed Lord Winfield that they were leaving for London immediately. She sent for the servants and told them to pack their trunks. Lord Winfield was delighted by his wife’s news, for he had longed to return home to be with his hounds, especially his precious Annie and Pearl who he missed terribly. Lady Winfield had a strong

suspicion that Mrs. Kensington had returned to London, and if her assumption was correct, she was determined to find her deceitful friend and reclaim what rightfully belonged to the Winfield family.

oped a good working relationship. They talked about fashion, school, current events and baseball. In time Petrucci began to look up to Dexter as an older sister. “After working with Miss Dexter, I began to understand her and where she was coming from. She was a spinster, who was very set in her ways, but she was smart and committed to the library,” recalled Petrucci. “After high school, I went to work fulltime at the telephone company, got married, and had a family. My husband and I eventually moved to North Haven, but once a month I would bring my children to see Miss Dexter. We kept in touch through correspondence, especially during the holidays. As time went on,

the letters became less and so did the trips to the library, especially after Miss Dexter retired and moved to Florida to live with her sister.” Today, Laura brings her grandchildren to the North Haven Memorial Library, where they check-out books, use the computers and enjoy the children’s programs. She misses the card catalogue, working with the public and Miss Dexter, who has since passed on. “Every time I go to the library, I look around and I can’t help but feel Miss Dexter’s presence. I always check-out a book or two and my favorites are still the classics with a romance or biography mixed in,” said a sincere Petrucci. “The library will always be a special place filled with wonderful books, smiling faces, and good memories.” 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. For Laura Petrucci, memories of working at the library, the love for books, and a unique working relationship she had with her boss have and will remain long after every book has been read and time goes by. Let your heart, as well as your mind, cherish memories of yesterday for they bring comfort and hope for today and tomorrow, so while we can, we should remember when.
