Bringing accountability into North Haven’s classrooms By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The North Haven High School Community Problem Solvers, Ken Brocoli, Joe Burr, Joseph Cristofano, Parker Heyl, Drew Proto and Derrick Russo would like to thank Clintonville School, Green Acres School, Montowese School, Washington Avenue’s McDonald’s and the Recreation Center for being drop off locations for their baby food drive. A special thanks to First Selectman Michael Freda for his dedication and support to this project. Additionally, they would like to thank everyone who donated so generously to this worthy cause. Hundreds of jars of baby food, bottles of formula and boxes of cereal were collected, along with many monetary contributions from individuals and businesses around town. Ken, Joe, Joseph, Parker, Drew and Derrick would also like to thank their neighbors who filled a pick-up truck with baby food. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can make checks payable to NHHS and mail to: c/o Roseann Cristofano, P.O. Box 713, North Haven, CT 06473.

To forge learning plans targeted for specific student needs, North Haven schools’ new curriculum consultant Barbara Peck has begun creating a data-driven decision making education system. In summarizing her initiative, Peck uses a medical metaphor. “You wouldn’t go to a primary care physician and expect them to provide cutting-edge diagnostics without first administering cutting-edge tests, blood work, etc.,” she said. “Datadriven decision-making parallels the medical field. As doctors first collect data on patients as individuals before proceeding, teachers can collect data on students as individuals.” “In the past, teachers collected the tests, gave out grades and moved on without thinking about what all the data means,” she added. “Data-driven decision-making will transform the way we will work as a system, as schools and as departments.”

One method to gather data is uniform end-of-unit tests across North Haven schools and grades. “We have developed common assessments, end-of-the-unit tests,” Peck said. “In the past, teachers would develop their own. Now we have aligned these common assessments to state standards, so that it’s testing students on things they need to know.” “Universal, common assessments review the progress of all students through the use of grade and age level assessments,” she added. “These assessments help schools identify children who may need more support or other types of instruction, additional teaching strategies or methods.” Common assessments can then be studied and interpreted by groups of school staff, called data teams, which meet regularly. “As teachers work in data teams, there is more of a collective responsibility for student learning,” Peck said.

Funds found to add one police officer this year, one next year By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

At Nov. 17’s Board of Finance meeting, topics included filling police department personnel shortages and North Haven’s improved health insurance claims history. Police Last month, Police Chief James X. DiCarlo requested that BOF members lift a hiring freeze begun amidst financial cuts in last year’s budget

season, during which the first referendum was voted down. As two officers who retired effective May 2010 have not been replaced, and several other officers have taken medical leaves, DiCarlo feared his staff was stretched too thin while simultaneously running up overtime costs. Subsequent discussions with Finance Director Ed Swinkowski and BOF chairman Richard Monico yielded a budget management strategy which would allow for future

hires. Delays still exist, however, as new officers require months of classes before patrolling streets. DiCarlo was not present on Wednesday — he was interviewing potential new officers for a position to begin in January, which would mean an October police school graduation. BOF members were upbeat about finding means to increase police personnel numbers, which DiCarlo had said were down to 1984 levels.

“With having officers out on worker’s comp, and bringing one officer in in January, there is sufficient money in his payroll line item, give or take, and the balance will make up in [DiCarlo’s] budget, to bring that officer online without having to appropriate additional funds,” Monico said. “[DiCarlo’s] intention is . . . to have that officer attend classes in Febru-

League of Women Voters host town leaders By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

North Haven and Hamden’s League of Women Voters recently hosted a membership meeting on “The State of Our Towns” that was attended by a small crowd in the North Haven Library’s community room. Guest speakers were Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson and North Haven First Selectman Michael Freda, who both talked about the current status of their towns, problems they have encountered, the progress they have made and how the two towns could work more closely to achieve common goals. “I believe that for democracy to work effectively, more people need to be concerned about how their town and state are governed and get involved with their communities,” stated Elona M. Vaisnys, membership director for the State Board of Connecticut. “The League of Women Voters is to show how their towns and states work by

and he complimented the fire and police for their devoted services for public safety to the town. “We work better when we work together and collaborate on projects. We are the same people working on the same challenges and we are all in this together,” Jackson added. Freda began his talk by addressing similar issues and concerns facing North Haven. He did stress the fact that North Haven is in good financial shape and the town is preparing for a 20-50 percent decrease in state aid due to these bad economic times. He also is working relentlessly with the economic development commission to bring developers to town, create positive opportunities for businesses and to keep tenants in town. Efforts are in place to improve roads, sidewalks and other infrastructure. “We are watching the challenges of the future and are working and ready to meet these challenges. Challenges are opportunities and hurdles are solutions,” stated Freda. “There are always pot holes along the roads of opportunity but we can overcome them if we stay focused, have a positive attitude, and work together as a


united community.” Freda also emphasized the pride that North Haven takes in education and educational services for the town’s children. He complimented the fire and police for their tireless efforts and commitment for serving and protecting the residents, businesses, and visitors of the community as well as all town employees, and community volunteers and nonprofit organiza-

the achievements and challenges that his town has made and is currently facing, especially during these difficult economic times. “We need to keep young talent here in our state, but unfortunately we are a major exporter of young professionals because this state has a high cost of living and has the highest energy rates on the continent, which makes it very difficult for businesses and residents to stay and come to Connecticut,” explained Jackson. “I believe from diversity comes strength and we do have a progressive group of people looking for government to help their town.” Jackson focused on several issues and challenges, including transportation, jobs, road construction and sidewalk improvements, environmental and ecological issues, town relationships with other towns, education, health and health care, town finances for healthcare and pensions, and high energy costs. He also spoke of progress and some positive achievements in the arts and culture, the geographical ties Hamden has to New Haven, including easy access by transportation for the 25 percent of Hamden’s residents working in New Haven,

Its mission is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. The league encompasses the towns of Hamden and North Haven. There are currently 45 members, mostly women, but new membership is always encouraged and the league is looking for more men to join. League president Mary Bigelow gave opening remarks and then introduced speakers Jackson and Freda. “It is time to find out about Hamden and North Haven, and I believe in community involvement and we are encouraging new members to join and get involved,” said Bigelow. “We don’t go after candidates or practice character assassinations. We go after the issues. And tonight’s meeting is a perfect opportunity for these two fine leaders to speak to us about the status of their towns.” Jackson spoke first. He began his talk with the importance of diversity, and how from diversity comes strength. He also spoke about

Seniors learn about brain health at special seminar By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The non-profit Alzheimer’s Association held a seminar Nov. 16 at North Haven’s senior center on activities to improve brain health. “This is probably one of the most important topics,” said senior center director Judy Amarone. “They tell you, ‘If you don’t use it, you lose it,’ and that’s true for your brain as well.” Although her speech focused on strategies to combat Alzheimer’s, Maria Tomesetti of Alzheimer’s Association offered general advice for bettering anybody’s mind. “Your brain weighs about three pounds. It is the size of a medium cauliflower, if you can picture that,” she said. “There are 100 billion nerve cells in your brain, which are connected by 100 trillion connections. The nerve cells and connections allow us to do everything we do.” “In our 20s and 30s is typically when the destruction of our brain’s nerve cells begin,” she added. Bodily well-being is related to good brain health. “What’s good for your heart is good for your brain,” Tomesetti said. Literature handed out by Tomesetti suggested that people do something every day to prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke, as all increase the risk of Alzheimer’s. Keeping

numerical ranges is also beneficial to brains. “We can’t prevent

Alzheimer’s, but we can reduce the risk of it and delay the onset,” Tomesetti said. Certain diets are helpful for brain health, including dark vegetables and fruits, and less fatty items higher in antioxidants. As examples, Tomesetti suggested kales, spinach, broccoli, eggplant, corn, prunes, berries, cherries, raisins, coldwater fish and nuts. Physical activity can keep our brains healthy. “Physical exercise keeps the blood flowing to the brain and may encourage new brain cells,” Alzheimer’s Association literature stated. “Walking just 30 minutes a day can help keep both body and mind active.” Mental exertion, too, can strengthen brain cells and connections, and may even trigger new cell growth, according to Tomesetti. “For a simple brain challenge, next time you brush your teeth, put your toothbrush in your opposite hand when brushing,” she said. “Your brain will wonder

what’s going on.” “Keep your mind active in new ways,” she added. “Read a book or newspaper. Try to cook a new recipe. Learn something new on the computer. Take a class and learn something new. Keeping up with the recent elections and current events is a great way to stay active.” Tomesetti challenged the audience with quick mental exercises. After she disseminated lists of 15 food items, she asked her listeners to read and attempt to memorize the items. Then they were asked to turn over the sheets. In a matter of minutes, the room of seniors recalled almost all 15 items. Mentally forming connections, Tomesetti said, was a beneficial brain activity which allowed participants to increase their odds of remembering. “Who remembered things they liked?” she said. “Who remembered things they didn’t like?

Patriots and Scoundrels book 2, part 12 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

Upon Mrs. Kensington’s return home, she retreated to the library, unaware that Lydia Johnson was lurking in the shadows of the first floor. Mrs. Kensington paced across the room in an agitated manner. Then her solitude was interrupted by Simon Blackwell, who entered the library through the secret passage. “I am in no mood to deal with you at this moment. Go back from wherever you came from. I will see you tomorrow,” replied a disgusted Mrs. Kensington. “My lovely matriarch, what seems to be troubling you? Has one of your pawns been seized by your opponent? How could you let such a careless move take place?” laughed Simon. “If you must know, Charity Chastine has allowed herself to be coerced and deceived by the lies of that willful Alexander Caruthers and his pathetic wife Constance

Singleton Caruthers. Charity has chosen to live with them at Singleton Lodge. I believe their friendship and alliance will prove to be trouble for me as well as for you, my horrid friend.” “Please, explain yourself woman. I am most intrigued by your statement.” “I do not wish to elaborate on the matter tonight. I am retiring for the evening and will deal with the situation in the morning. Now, I will take my leave.” When Mrs. Kensington had gone, Simon helped himself to a carafe of wine that was on the table. He drank while contemplating his next move unaware that Lydia Johnson was nearby, spying on him. ——The next morning a servant brought a basin of water to my room. She opened the drapes to let the sunshine in, and then she was kind to help me get dressed. While she assisted me, I engaged in conversation with the young

woman, whose name was Caroline. She said her parents named her after the Carolina colonies. She was a pleasant and genteel person with ash blond hair and tiny freckles on her face. After I had finished dressing, she politely excused herself and went down the hall. As I peered from the doorway, I saw Caroline go to a room at the very end of the hall, knock at the door and utter the word “Lizzie.” I was taken aback when I heard the name. Lizzie — I instantly thought of Elizabeth Higgins because that was what her father Mr. Higgins called his daughter. A few moments later the door opened, and a man, whose face I could not get a clear view of, let her in, and then quickly shut the door. Overcome with curiosity, I tiptoed down the hall and

stood by the door of the room. I placed my ear to the door in an attempt to hear voices. The speaking was muffled, but it sounded like several people were in the room. As I continued to listen, suddenly the knob began to turn, so I hurried back to my room, where I remained concealed with my door slightly ajar as I looked to see who was coming down the hall. As the person got closer, I saw that it was Alexander Caruthers. His brightly-colored coat with gold buttons was not difficult to notice. After he was gone, I left my room, planning to return to the room down the hall when a voice called out to me. “Good morning, my dear friend. Did you sleep well last night?” inquired Constance. “I am on my way to get you and escort you down-

stairs for breakfast. I see that you are going in the wrong direction.” “Good morning, Constance. Yes. I slept very well last night. Thank you for asking. I must apologize for not going in the right direction, but your lovely home is so grand that I am a bit confused.” Constance graciously accepted my explanation and said with the new rooms even she sometimes forgets where she is going. As we made our way downstairs, I turned my head for a moment and then glanced at the door, wondering who was in that room and why Caroline used the name “Lizzie?” In the dining room, we were joined by Jean-Luc and Louise, who were already seated at the table along with Alexander. Both Jean-Luc and Alexander greeted me while rising from their chairs. Louise smiled and then moved one seat closer to Alexander. Constance and Alexander sat at either end of the table with Jean-Luc and me on one side and Louise on the other. Louise was occupied with admiring the beautiful chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Alexander remarked he had it brought to Singleton Lodge from his estate in Virginia. Alexander and Louise engaged in small talk over breakfast, and JeanLuc entertained Constance and me with tales about his service in the French navy. As Jean-Luc spoke, I found his conversation very interesting while seeing another side to his personality that was warm and sincere. His actions and manners at breakfast did not resemble the behavior I had witnessed a few weeks back when he and Monsieur Monnerat were involved in that terrible fight. After our meal, Alexander, Louise and Jean-Luc excused themselves and went to the drawing room to discuss business, leaving me alone with Constance. “That Louise is one of the men. My husband seems to be taken with her zest for adven-

Counselor supports Rotary Club’s unsung hero By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen

Last week, the local Rotary Club celebrated an unsung hero from North Haven High School (NHHS), recognizing senior Gabriel Scrivani, who was first nominated by NHHS counselor Laurie Magoveny. “When asked why he gives to his community, he speaks about the importance of giving and valuing others,” stated Magoveny, who recently spoke before Rotary members at Washington Avenue’s Breakfast Nook. She has worked closely with Scrivani throughout his secondary school career, and added that he is planning to study nursing and psychology after June graduation. Describing him as “genuinely compassionate,” she told her audience that “Gabe is a role model and inspiration to others.” In her initial written contact, she informed Rotary members that Gabe had done a great deal of community service, often by performing at fundraising events. The candidate review committee learned that Scrivani had long completed the 40 hours of service required by the school over

Under the Rotary Club’s “Unsung Hero” program, founded two years ago at NHHS, Scrivani, a talented musician (and future medical student), was honored by President Rick DiNorscia and committee chairwoman, Bernadette Casella, in a brief ceremony. Scrivani, accompanied by his parents Louise and Ernie, thanked his counselor and the service club,

but focused his gratitude on his parents, who he said, “Bestowed their good values upon me.”

The three founding Rotarians who serve on the committee, Bernadette and Guy Casella, as well as Brian Coughlin, published parameters indicating that a candidate for the award “should be a student who is involved in his or her community, works well with others and demonstrates good character.” Although they may not be high academic achievers, they are “the students who strive for the best that they can be, yet may never be recognized for their achievements.” The honoree reported to the club that finding a cure, and prevention of cancer in children, have become personal goals. The talented guitarist devotes much of his time volunteering as both a camp counselor and tutor, as well as donating his time and expertise to church activities. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has been a regular recipient of his time and tal-

ent, as well. Of the candidate, Magoveny’s nomination letter stated, “He is always willing to help out wherever and whenever asked. I know Gabe well, having worked with him through good and bad times over the past four years. He is a very humble, kind young man who is going to continue to give back.” Magoveny told her attentive audience that the young man seated before them intended to one day become a pediatric nurse. Among the reasons was the fact that he had lost a young friend last year to cancer. The child was only seven years old. Her extensive list of his recent accomplishments, including service performances, many of which have been repeated over the past three years, follows: - In concert with local

The Green Bag Courtesy of Bridget Austiguy-Preschel, Ridge Road School PTA

Ridge Road Elementary School students, Chandler DeCusati and Alyssa Guarino, are holding the journal called The Green Bag. They are seated with Mrs. Westerberg in the Ridge Road School Library. The Green Bag is a journal written for lawyers, and read regularly by our Supreme Court Justices. Last spring, under Mrs. Westerberg’s direction, the fourth graders visited a special exhibit of rare manuscripts at the Yale Law Library. As a follow-up to this trip, Mrs. Westerberg asked the children to write reflections and thank-you letters to Mr. Michael Widener, the Rare Book Law Librarian who was responsible for the exhibit and who had invited the children. Mr. Widener posted the letters on his blog and the editor of The Green Bag was so impressed with the work of our children, he asked to publish two of the letters. As a result our children are the very first children whose work is published in this prestigious journal. The author of The Green Bag article wrote, “It is heartening to see that at least some school children these days appreciate...fine books....” Mrs. Westerberg, Ridge Road librarian, is especially ecstatic about this honor.

Curriculum Continued from page 1

“Teams of administrators and teachers, in a broad sense, will take collective responsibility for student learning,” she added. “They go through a five-step process when they look at data. And

it’s different kinds of data – behavioral data, academic data and more.” The five step process is comprised of tightly-designed rubrics which measure both student and teacher performance: Step 1, “Examine Collected and Charted Data,” looks at percentages of pupils at or

above goal versus those below goal. Students who are behind on meeting objectives are broken into further tiers – students likely to be at goal at the end of instructional time, students less likely to be at goal, and those not likely to be at goal. Step 2, “Analyze Student Work,” considers reasons be-


hind test scores by requesting teachers to express strengths and challenges revealed in each tier’s work. Step 3, “Set SMART Goal,” requires teachers to create personal objectives that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant/realistic and timely (SMART). Specifically, education leaders set percentage goals for bringing students to higher tiers. Step 4, “Select Instructional Strategies,” asks teachers to choose one or two research-based strategies that have the highest probability of increasing student achievement. Such strategies, or improvement exercises, include additional homework, working in cooperative groups, upping individual classroom effort and other teaching techniques. As each student benefits from different approaches, this step helps teachers decide the best plans for pupil success. Step 5, “Identify Result Indicators,” has teachers select ahead of time what signs will illustrate whether or not students are learning with new instruction. In follow-up meetings, teachers will bring with them student work representative of results from new instructional strategies, in order to consider what is and is not effective. Moreover, the staff will compare their SMART goals percentage pledges versus actual results. “Teachers use the data from common assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of their instruction and to identify student needs,” Peck

said. “If a student didn’t perform well on an assessment, the teachers need to reteach.” “And teachers need to reteach in a different way, instead of more of the same,” she added. “This creates an accountability model in terms of teachers and students.” Peck bases her system on the Connecticut Accountability for Learning Initiative, an arm of Connecticut’s State Board of Education. “The business world has been setting SMART goals for some time. This creates accountability — teaching becomes results-driven,” she said “And this is content neutral — it doesn’t matter what subject you’re teaching. These are effective strategies that can be applied to all schools.” As Peck’s system is complex, she expects a gradual implementation. “I’m trying to unify the district in terms of these initiatives,” she said. “The goal is that, in two to three years, all the teachers will be trained, secure and actively using data-driven decision-making.” Two years ago, Peck began assisting North Haven’s middle school as an external curriculum consultant. She was hired for a district-wide position before this year. “There hasn’t been a curriculum position in town for the last six years,” said Peck, a 30-year North Haven native. “There has been no one, really, to provide leadership in things curriculum. As a result, I’m thrilled to be addressing curriculum instruction.”

Letters to the Editor

Public speakers

To the editor: In response to a letter by Mr. Parisi (The North Haven Citizen, 11-19), I attend almost all of the Board of Selectman’s meetings. I have to respectfully disagree with the notion that people be allowed to speak for only three minutes. I witnessed this under Ms. McCarty’s administration and I, frankly, thought that Mr. Freda would be a breath of fresh air to North Haven. He has stated that he would be happy to answer any and all questions and that he would stay there all night if need be. May I suggest to Mr. Parisi that if he objects to these meetings, that maybe he could enjoy watching them on TV (where he could turn off the public comment) or leave before public comment comes up. That way he

could get home at a reasonable time. Irene Salman North Haven

Censorship To the editor: I attend Board of Selectmen meetings and am grateful North Haven remains that precious form of citizen government — the town meeting. We are unique in that we can fully participate in how our local government works. I think many know what and who Mr. Parisi is attempting to monitor with his “suggestions.” I appreciate that there are people who come to meetings prepared to speak and ask questions. These people are polite and courteous to the Board and I am better informed after questions have been answered. I don’t count numbers of times someone

comes to the microphone, nor do I think we should control this. I am sorry to say that some of the audience behaves badly. They snicker, make crude comments and whisper to the person next to them, when they should be sitting quietly and extending the same courtesy to the speaker they want when they speak. If Mr. Parisi wants anyone’s behavior changed, perhaps he could concentrate on teaching these people manners. I reject Mr. Parisi’s argument that he could “get home at a reasonable time” as a sound argument to support censorship. He is also being very presumptuous to impose costs on others so he can go home early. How would he feel if we called his opinions “nonsense”? Mr. Freda has stated on several occasions that he

Death sentence To the editor: Recently in Pakistan, a Christian woman named Asia Bibi has received the death sentence because she supposedly denounced Prophet Muhammad — a violation of the Pakistani Penal Code 295C. Succumbing to the madness of clerics is not an isolated phenomenon in Pakistan. As one example, the Pakistani government has also stripped the voting rights of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community — which promotes a separation of mosque and state — since

2002. America, who considers Pakistan an ally in the war on terror, must urge Pakistan to void Bibi’s death sentence and repeal laws that legitimize intolerance, extremism and denial of fundamental human rights. To ignore this problem will not only be unjust, but extremely dangerous. Asim Ahmad Member Muslim Writers Guild of America North Haven

Phone book phase-out By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

News that fewer paperback phone books are now printed sounds in line with contemporary communication trends. Modern forms of correspondence and reference — online number databases, cell phones, Facebook, etc. — may write the white pages out of America’s culture. An Associated Press article (the Record-Journal, 11-12) reports that 15 states have already asked for, or have been granted, requests to quit issuing residential phone listings. Over the last decade, 10 percent of tradition landlines are disconnected yearly. In our digitally-wired world, none of this surprises. When many consider big, bulky yellow phone books, first thoughts can picture doorstops or dusty piles. The white pages arrive annually upon our driveways or front porches. From there they might be relegated to forgotten drawers, or stacked in corners or even used as makeshift peg legs to balance uneven furniture. Opening numerical tomes for information is an activity which occurs maybe a dozen times before next year’s edition is dropped off with a thump. In search of numbers, more people now turn to computers. Flipping through pages takes longer than an in-

22nd annual food drive was a great success. Nearly 33,600 pounds of food was collected this year by almost 600 members of local Boy Scout and Cub Scout units participating, as well as members from a couple of Brownie troops. Although the news media has been reporting that giving is down this year, this is one of our highest totals ever. Apparently our neighbors still believe it is important to take care of our fellow human beings. We sincerely appreciate your support. Jim Racca Meriden

ternet search. Every major phone company has its own online white pages equivalent, recognizing trends. Websites can even be accessed from pocket-sized Blackberries and other mobile equipment. Carried and relied upon by increasing amounts of individuals, cell phones have led many to cancel land lines. Numbers for handheld devices are not listed in the white pages, thus lessening their application. And cellular tools can contain enormous contacts lists within themselves. Economically, termination of telephone books can save corporations money. Statewide distribution entails high costs, as do production and publishing components. Little revenue is lost if paper repositories are no longer created. Bottom lines are largely unaffected, a plus amidst recessionary times. Environmental benefits, too, can grow from phone books’ elimination. Fewer copies printed means decreased numbers of trees felled for pulp. Axing paper directories also saves on ink use, a pro-green impact. Trucks which carry catalogues for delivery exhaust fuel, and release engine gases into our atmosphere. Removing such mechanisms could be an ecological boon. As technology evolves, some instruments will be disconnected from everyday use. The white pages may soon join switchboard operators and dial-up internet as nostalgic anachronisms. Watching a onetime American mainstay vanish is by no means something celebratory, but like seasons, some traditions simply come to pass. Content provided by the Record-Journal, Meriden

An Ounce of Prevention Home water filtering By Deborah Culligan The North Haven Citizen You have probably seen commercials for water filtration systems. There are two kinds: the kind you put on your overall water supply and the kind you use at the tap. What is the truth about filtration systems? Do they work? Are they necessary? Do you need one? This following information from the booklet “Water Health Series: Filtration Facts” published by the Environmental Protection Agency (September 2005, # 816-K-05-002) may help you to assess these questions. Filtration systems do work. However, what they do and how they do it varies widely, as does cost. Systems can range from a $20 water pitcher to a several-thousand-dollar, total water supply system. Obviously a water pitcher system is going to be able to do less than a large system-wide product. There are three common reasons why people put filtration systems on their water supply: to soften water, to improve taste and/or to remove contaminants. Two types of products are available to address these issues: Point of Use devices and Point of Entry devices. Point of Use products are used at the point where the water you are going to drink comes out, such as the kitchen faucet (or under the sink). Point of Use products will only filter that water which you are about to consume (or use). Such products include a filter pitcher, distillers or reverse osmosis units. The filter pitcher is very good at improving taste and may reduce some lead content and remove some contaminants. The distiller systems kill most microbes and remove most chemicals. The osmosis units use a lot more water than they produce, but are effective in eliminating all disease-causing organisms and most chemical contaminants. As the capability of each type of product increases, so does the cost. Point of Entry products treat the whole water system. They are placed where your water supply enters your house. There are several types with a range of costs. Regardless of the type of product you choose, be sure to follow the manufacturturning phone calls and providing customer service,” added Freda. “We must put aside party differences and political divisions and come together and galvanize for the purpose of moving our municipalities forward especially in these difficult times.”

er’s operating instructions and change filters as indicated. (A dirty or clogged system is not going to do the job you want!) To determine what type of filtration system is best for you, you need to read what the manufacturer says the product will do. To verify that the product will perform as its literature states, you should look for certification of the product. The EPA does not certify products, but relies on three organizations to do this. The NSF Interaction Water Treatment Device Certification program requires extensive product testing and unannounced audits of production facilities. The goal of this program is to provide assurance to consumers that the water treatment device meets the design, material and performance requirements of national standards. Underwriters Laboratories, Inc (UL) is an independent, accredited testing and certification organization that certifies home water treatment units which meet or exceed EPA drinking water standards of contaminant reduction, aesthetic concerns, structural integrity and materials safety. The Water Quality Association is a trade organization that tests water treatment equipment and awards its “Gold Seal” to systems that meet or exceed standards for contaminant reduction performance, structural integrity and material safety. All three of these organizations are accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). If the product you are looking at does not have one of these certifications, you should contact the manufacturer and request proof of the claims that it makes. There is more information in the booklet than can be shared in this column. District residents (Bethany, Hamden, North Haven and Woodbridge) can request a copy of this water filtration booklet by calling Quinnipiac Valley Health District, 203 248-4528 or request on line, An Ounce of Prevention is a publication of the Quinnipiac Valley Health District, 1151 Hartford Turnpike, North Haven. An Ounce of Prevention is written by QVHD Deputy Director V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH.

At the end of the meeting, those in attendance had a better understanding of how both towns operate, the challenges they are facing and the plans for the future. The meeting concluded with pleasant conversation, laughter and new friendships. “We need to hold hands for

the future and help one another. Tonight’s forum provided that opportunity, and as public servants we believe by uniting together and sharing ideas and talents will make our towns better places to live, work, and visit today and tomorrow,” stated Freda and Jackson.

Think of pork chops in a delicate white wine sauce versus pork chops in a zesty red wine sauce; in each case the sauce dictates the pairing choice. Pair earthly wines with earthly foods Many great pairing combinations happen when wines and foods echo one another. Earthiness is often found in reds such as Pinot Noir (particularly from Burgundy) and Nebbiolo, making them great partners for equally earthy ingredients like bison steaks or wild mushrooms.

ties at Yale University MultiSports Camp in New Haven Also present at the ceremony was Assistant Principal Andrew Pettola, who expressed his personal endorsement of the candidate, and later wrote, “Gabe’s nomination for Unsung Hero came as no surprise. He truly gives from the heart, not for any accolades or honors. Gabe’s many hours of service touched others positively, and helped shape his career path. His example serves as an inspiration to other students on how to serve the community and make the world a better, more caring

place.” After Scrivani accepted his certificate of recognition, thanked the service organization and others for the honor, and returned to his table, one of the newer Rotarians rose to bestow his personal respect for the work that Gabe has done for others. Despite being displaced from his home in recent weeks due to a furnace

mishap, Mark Minotti said that he was touched by the program and felt fortunate to be present to meet the day’s honoree. Minotti related that his own local business in the music industry had sadly lost six of its students to cancer. He then pledged to donate a brand new guitar to Gabe’s next fund raising venture to fight the disease.

foods that went together?” Tomesetti also distributed picture puzzles from which viewers had to figure out common phrases represented by words and drawings. (To attempt the mental exercise, see the attached photograph.) A healthy social life, in which we consider others thoughts in light of our own, is another opportunity to form mental connections, which could delay dementia’s arrival. If blended together, Tomesetti’s recommendations are even more effective. She put forth travel and beach walks as examples. “When you travel, you are learning something new, you are connecting things in a foreign place, and you are connecting with new people,” she said. “When you are walking along the beach and talking, it is an activity,” she continued. “And you are socializing.” Humility and understanding are necessary when deal-

She became involved with the Alzheimer’s Association after her mother developed dementia’s symptoms, including trouble relating spoken words to thoughts. “My mother once asked me for grated cheese for her toes,” Tomesetti said. “She meant talcum powder. Of course, I knew not to laugh.” “But as I was getting the talcum powder, my mother heard what she had said, and started laughing,” she added. “And because she was laughing, I laughed. It was okay because we were laughing together. It turned into one of those wonderful moments of joy that you have to embrace with people who have dementia.”

Santa delivers Courtesy of Mark Powell

The Northeast Volunteer Fire Association is offering a unique holiday service. On Saturday, Dec. 18, and Sunday, Dec. 19, from 1 to 6 p.m., they will be helping Santa deliver presents to good little boys and girls. If you would like Santa to stop at your home with a gift for someone special just follow these steps: 1) securely gift wrap a present and place it in a brown paper bag. 2) Clearly print your child’s full name and address on the top of the bag. 3) Drop the package off at the Northeast Firehouse located at 366 Washington Ave. on Saturday, Dec. 11, from noon to 4 p.m. There is a donation of $25 for up to two children receiving presents, and then $5 for each additional child receiving a present. For any special arrangements, please call Mark Powell at (203) 823-3992. Thank you! “The good news is, for the first nine months of this year, we’re averaging about $588,000,” he said. “So we brought the claims history down. Now we’re at the point where we need to determine what our next steps are.” “That’s good news for us,” he added. “The way these insurance companies work, they take bids that go back 20 months. So every month that goes by with a lower claims history, we start dropping off higher months from the past.

I do not mind her choice just as long as she keeps her hands off my husband,” sneered Constance. “Alexander seems very devoted to you, and he is quite a gentleman. I am certain that no other woman can capture his heart.” “My dear Charity, you always know the kind words to say. Thank you for putting me at ease.” Suddenly, we heard a loud crashing sound, like that of breaking glass, followed by a shrill scream.
