A Republican sweep


Michael Freda takes First Selectman seat from incumbent Janet McCarty

Citizen photos by Kevin Fletcher

By Kyle Swartz and Pamela Morello The North Haven Citizen

The 2009 North Haven municipal elections were a resounding sweep for the Republicans, with Michael Freda taking the First Selectman position. Freda defeated incumbent First Selectman Janet McCarty by more than 1,600 votes with 4,873 to McCarty’s 3,232. Republican second selectman candidate Tim Doheny defeated Stephen Fontana 4,404 to 3,591. Fontana received more votes than McCarty, and will be the town’s third selectman. At 8:01 p.m., just after the polls closed in North Haven, Republican First Selectman candidate Michael Freda walked into Fantasia’s banquet room to a standing ovation and thunderous applause, despite the crowd not knowing the election’s outcome.

Before any results had been reported to the Republican’s gathering spot on Tuesday, the mood in the room was anxious, but hopeful, and as the numbers poured in, it shifted to uninhibited joy and celebration. As each district’s results were called in to Republican Town Committee chairman Deborah Ward-O’Brien and then plugged into a spreadsheet projected on the wall, supporters cheered and high-fived one another in celebration of Freda’s victory. “Has anybody in the house got a broom,” shouted Joseph D’Errico. “This is a clean sweep.” In his victory speech, Freda noted the positive experiences he had during the campaign as he went door-todoor meeting residents, talking to businesses and town employees. “I had the feeling that I was connecting with every single person on some level

along the way,” Freda said. That, combined with a determined and steadfast team of people, is what kept Freda moving forward in the campaign, he said. He took the opportunity on Tuesday to thank those who helped him along. “Tonight is a night of thank yous,” he said. “I’d like to thank every citizen for giving me the opportunity to run for first selectman in this wonderful town we live in.” “The other thing that continued to fuel my fire was the team I had behind me, who took time away from their businesses, their work, their personal lives and families, and for that I will be eternally grateful,” Freda added. “I’m absolutely humbled to be handed the opportunity to serve the fine citizens of North Haven,” Freda said after the victory. The new First Selectman, who will begin his two-year

term on Dec. 1, said that a major focus of his administration will be bipartisanship. “What people can expect from me is that I will reach out across all party lines,” Freda said. “I am interested in unifying North Haven.” Freda also vowed for ease of communication between his office and the general public. “People will find that I will be very responsive in returning all phone calls,” he said. “I will be working diligently to have my office serve all of

The drama club held auditions for the play in mid-September, Grassi said, and has been practicing since for five nights a week

The North Haven High School drama club will perform Arthur Miller’s classic play “The Crucible” on Nov. 6 through Nov. 7 at the NHHS auditorium.

Third graders given lasting gift from Rotary Club By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The North Haven Rotary Club distributed an important gift to all North Haven third grade students last week – the gift of words. On the morning of Oct. 28, local Rotarians made Clintonville Elementary School one of their six stops in their drive to administer diction-

aries to every North Haven third grader. “Today, you will leave with a special gift,” said Clintonville principal Lauretta Dowling to approximately 60 third graders seated in the school’s cafeteria. “It is a gift you will use for the rest of your life. You will use it until you are 100 years old – that’s how special it is.” The fifth annual drive in-

cluded all four of the town’s elementary schools, in addition to Hamden’s St. Stephen’s and St. Rita’s schools, as North Haven students also attend the two parochial institutions. At Clintonville, the Rotarians, including Superintendent Sara-Jane Querfeld, explained the club’s purposes to before handing out the books.

“We’re a service organization,” explained current North Haven Rotary Club president Nick Casella. “We serve the local community, but we’re also an international organization. We do things globally and help a lot of people in need.” Future North Haven Rotary Club President Rick DiNorscia elaborated on the club’s international initiative. “We bought water filters for all the schools in one town in India,” he said. “The Rotary Club was started in 1904

Police seek help in providing traditional holiday meals to those in need By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen


A year later, Compare said, Community Services asked if the police union would be willing to assist with turkeys once again. “Mr. Riccio said that they were a little short this year for Thanksgiving,” Compare said. “He said that because of the economy, they were a few turkeys short.” Compare hoped that by donating a large number of turkeys now, the town could be set for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. The union president believed that assisting the town’s food pantry was simply part of his job as a police officer. “That’s why we all took

that everybody takes for granted this time of year,” he said. “For some people, it’s really a big gift.” “If something like that makes somebody’s holiday, then that’s the least we can

The local police union is seeking help in brightening the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays of those who cannot afford a full traditional meal. “We’re looking for assistance with the donation of turkeys,” said North Haven officer Michael Compare, president of local police union 3087, “The union is giving 20 turkeys for Thanksgiving, and we’re looking for anybody to match our 20 turkeys.” The union is donating the turkeys to the Town Hall food bank, run by the Department of Community Services. The food bank gives away the turkeys to North Haven families that cannot afford a full holiday meal on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The in-

town partnership was born last year out of Compare’s generosity. “I had previously donated a turkey for Thanksgiving,” Compare said. “I spoke to [Community Services employee] Dan Riccio, and he said that the food bank was 15 turkeys short for Christmas.” Enlightened of the shortfall, Compare and the police union contacted Montowese Meat, 95 Middletown Ave., and worked out an arrangement. “They gave us a really good deal on turkeys,” Compare said, and the union filled the need, also donating additional food items.

Peter’s Rock fall festival brings community together on town’s open space crown jewel By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen

Photo courtesy of Kevin Fletcher

Part of the day’s festivities at the 220-acre park named for Peter Brockett included pumpkin decorating for kids.

On a recent sunny and crisp autumn Sunday, the board members of Peter’s Rock Association held their second annual fall festival as an open house and a special thank you to the residents and businesses of North Haven for their support of the park. Peter’s Rock Park is a parcel of over 220 acres of open space nestled in the hills of the Montowese area at 133 Middletown Ave. behind First Fuel Gas Station. “We hosted this year’s fall festival as a thank you to the people and businesses in town, and for our members who give assistance and sup-

port for the park,” said Chris Fletcher, president of Peter’s Rock Association. “We are appreciative of the help our neighbors across the street and next door give, especially the owners of Guilio’s Restaurant, Roger Rossi, owner of First Fuel Gas Station, our members, and to Police Chief James DiCarlo and his fellow police officers for promoting public safety and assistance in keeping the park safe.” Fletcher explained that the association was formed in 2004 in an effort to maintain, promote, and preserve the park’s beautiful trails. The association’s future plans include increasing membership, seeking individuals to become board

members, finishing the main entrance, tending to the organic garden, maintaining the various trails, creating an easier trail to the summit, and continuing to enhance and add to the park. “Peter’s Rock is one of the treasures of North Haven. Its parcel of open space is a gift from nature,” said First Selectman Janet M. McCarty. “The association and the town do a great job maintaining it.” Peter’s Rock is not only a beautiful parcel of open space, but also a place of tranquility, sentimentality, and history. It was given its name by an American Revolution War veteran Peter

Fundraisers set to benefit local veteran By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen After a North Haven veteran and school janitor was forced to miss work in his long recovery from triple bypass surgery, many local individuals and organizations have come to his aid. Upon his return from service in Kuwait 17 years ago, North Haven’s Kirk Johnson was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He underwent aggressive chemotherapy and radiation, and eventually triumphed over the cancer. However, Johnson discovered last June that his brave battle had left him with Pulmonary Fibrosis, Interstitial

Lung Disease, and Radiation Cardio toxicity. On Aug. 18, 2009, as a result of his lingering ailments, he underwent emergency triple bypass surgery. Johnson, who graduated from Hamden High School, currently resides in North Haven with his wife and three young children. His convalescence from the surgery will force him to miss a large amount of time from his job as a janitor for the four North Haven elementary schools. That’s when the support began. “Everybody has come out swinging for this guy,” said Johnson’s sister-in-law Molly McKenna. “Everybody

comes out for the good guys, and he is one of the good ones.” North Haven elementary schools held a hat day to raise money to support Johnson’s family. Hamden elementary schools also raised funds through a hat day. Luigi’s Apizza, 323 Washington Ave., is holding a raffle, with all proceeds going to the Johnsons. McKenna herself has helped organize a Hamden Knights of Columbus benefit dinner for her brother-inlaw. Signs for the benefit have hung all over town for the last few weeks. “A lot of people are rooting for him,” McKenna said. “He’s such a gracious per-

son. He’s so humble. He just wants to keep this under the radar.” Johnson and his family declined to be interviewed for this story. McKenna thinks the outpouring of support for the local is due to two reasons. “First is because he is a veteran,” she said. “That’s huge. A lot of people came out for that. Second, he is so well known around here, and very well liked.” In describing Johnson’s demeanor, McKenna referenced another well known, albeit fictional, altruistic man whose community rose up in support. “I had somebody ask me the other day what Kirk’s

like,” she said. “Have you seen ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’? He’s just like George Bailey.” The Knights of Columbus benefit dinner is tonight, Nov. 6, at 6 p.m. at 2630 Whitney Ave., in Hamden. Donations are welcomed. McKenna said that the evening’s dinner - including ziti, meatballs, and other Italian staples - have been donated by local vendors. The evening will include a silent auction and several raffles, with the prizes also having been donated by local vendors. “The vendors have been huge,” McKenna said. “They have given huge support.” McKenna said that the

North Haven mom rallies for the environment with family-friendly event By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Photo courtesy of Caroline Dumont

The family event was part of the international pro-environment movement The photo above was one of thousands that were broadcast on a huge screen recently in Times Square in New York. The number 350 represents 350 parts per million, the safe level of carbon dioxide for our planet.

In part of an international effort to influence world leaders about global warming, North Haven mother Caroline Dumont joined with other locals to support the pro-environment movement The event also represents a local movement to interest youths in a pro-green lifestyle. Dumont, along with Milford’s Kim Garley-Erb and Joe Meade, hosted a family friendly climate rally on Oct. 24 at DeNicola Park in Hamden. Over 4,000 similar events were held on the same

day in 173 countries, as part of the global’s international day for climate action, Dumont said. Approximately 70 people brought pumpkins on Oct. 24 to help form the number “350” on the park’s field. A picture of the pumpkin-number was included with thousands of others, taken across the globe, on a giant screen at Times Square in New York. “Climate change is not something that is just going to go away,” Dumont said. Founded by environmentalist Bill McKibben, is a global campaign intended to raise awareness about global warming. The campaign takes it name from the scientifically proven safe upper atmospheric level of carbon dioxide for our planet – 350 parts per million, according to a campaign press release. Current upper atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide are around 390 parts per million, according to, a number which is contributing to global warming. The Times Square advertisement is part of’s push to influence world leaders whom will be conferencing in Copenhagen, Denmark this December to set global emissions limits. Dumont became interested in the cause after watching

McKibben speak on PBS last spring. “He’s a powerfully inspiring person,” she said. “Hearing him talk about climate change and how real it is, it was so inspiring.” Dumont researched McKibben’s organization online and began to receive e-mails from Her interest piqued, Dumont agreed to host a climate action event in Hamden. In organizing the event, Dumont contacted GarleyErb, a local elementary school teacher and the writer of a blog www.kidhaven., and Meade, owner of Milford Pedicab. Dumont said that a factor that helped transform her from follower to leader in the movement against global warming was her three children, aged two, four, and seven. “I’m a stay-at-home mom now,” she said. “I thought that it was more and more important to take action since I have children.” Garley-Erb, the mother of a two-year-old, echoed Dumont’s belief that increasing climate change awareness is paramount both in preparing the world for future generations and in preparing future generations for the world.

Election Continued from page 1 “I’m very grateful for the Republican team members who I worked with,” she said, “and I’m very grateful for all of the North Haven citizens who came out and pitched in.” “This campaign started nine months ago and it grew and grew and grew,” WardO’Brien added. “Every Saturday morning I would be at the headquarters, and I would receive 20 calls from citizens who wanted to help out.” “We got everything that North Haven needs and deserves,” Ward-O’Brien continued, “and it was not because of a small group of residents – it was a lot of North Haven residents.” Ward-O’Brien was thankful for the Republican triumph. “It was a wonderful experience with a wonderful result,” she said. “I am ecstatic.”

On election night, approximately 50 individuals gathered at the Democratic Town Committee headquarters at 80 Washington Ave. Red, white, and blue streamers and flags were tacked about the former shoe store, and the Democratic supporters conversed with cautious optimism as they awaited the closing of polls. William Gambardella worked the results whiteboard at the building’s forefront. At 8:30 p.m., Gambardella and his assistants received the unofficial numbers. A hush grew from the headquarters’ front and worked its way to the rear. Before the anxious Democratic supporters had time to discern the silence’s meaning, McCarty took a microphone and addressed the crowd. “The numbers are in and the people have chosen Michael Freda,” she said, with a slight but gracious pause before announcing the name of her opponent. The crowd collectively sighed. “But they have also chosen

Steve Fontana,” McCarty continued, “so Mr. Freda will be your First Selectman, and Mr. Doheny your Second Selectman. Mr. Fontana will be your third.” McCarty was composed and courteous in her defeat speech. “I am honored by the votes that I did get,” McCarty said. “I am surprised, but I think that we did a great job. We took care of the people in North Haven. We kept taxes down. I don’t know what else we could have done.” “We did the best that we could,” she added. “We worked really hard with the people we chose.” McCarty urged her supporters not to dwell on the defeat, but to be proud of their accomplishments. “Here we are, looking at each other and wondering ‘why,’” McCarty said, “but it is what it is. I am very proud of what we have accomplished.” The departing First Selectman told her audience that her Democratic admin-

istration, only the second in North Haven history and the first since 1969, had run the town well. “We showed that we could do it better than they did,” she said, “and we showed it to thousands of people, but not thousands enough.” McCarty spoke of both her and her party’s future in North Haven politics. “I still care deeply about the people of North Haven, education, and all of you,” she said. “I will see what happens in the future.” “We will meet new challenges and keep taking care of the people of North Haven in any way we can,” McCarty added. “We will support the Board of Selectman and the people of North Haven wherever that takes us.” After McCarty spoke, she handed the microphone to Democratic Town Committee chairman Peter Criscuolo. He reiterated McCarty’s pledge to continue supporting the town and its leaders. “I’m disappointed, obviously,” he said, “but we will

support the Board of Selectman, and we will always support the town, Democrats, Republicans, independents alike.” “We will support the town with whoever sits in the First Selectman’s chair,” Criscuolo added. “Parties are important, but not as important as the town.” Criscuolo was also gracious in defeat. “They deserved it,” he said of the Republicans. “They did a wonderful job, also.” After the speeches, McCarty and Criscuolo departed for the Republican headquarters to congratulate their opponents.

Play Continued from page 3 people,” Grassi said. “Arthur Miller based the characters on real people. He did make up personalities for them, but they are still very historical. They are not stock characters. The kids are portraying real people.” Grassi, who just began overseeing the drama club last year, selected this work because she believed in the abilities of her kids. “I felt that I had a cast of students who could handle it,” she said. “I selected it toward the end of last year and over the summer.” The play represents the first serious drama performed under Grassi. She added that another factor in her choice of “The Crucible” was that she was a fan of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Miller, who also penned “Death of a Salesman.” “I think that Arthur Miller is one of the greatest American playwrights,” Grassi said. “I feel a powerful draw toward this play.” The drama advisor hoped

that holding a performance by the much-celebrated writer would draw in the public. “Arthur Miller is one of the greatest playwrights of his time,” she added. “That alone should draw audiences to this production.” Grassi said that she expects about 100 people in attendance for each performance, as she believes that North Haven has been enthusiastic about its students and arts. “I feel that the town definitely comes to support the high school and the arts here,” she said. “I hope that the town continues to support theater in North Haven, and will support the hard work of the cast.” The play is sparse with props, Grassi said, but most necessary set pieces were built by the students themselves. Both performances begin at 7 p.m. Concessions will be sold at intermission. Tickets are sold at the door. All proceeds will cover production costs and benefit the drama club, Grassi said. For admission prices, contact the high school at (203) 239-1641.

November is National Adoption Month Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced that November is National Adoption Month, calling it is an important time to celebrate the joys of adoption - both for the adopted children and for the adults who adopt. “Over and over again, parents who adopt say that adopting their child is the most wonderful thing they have ever done,” Rell said. “Many Connecticut families experience this joy in their lives. Anyone who is considering adding to their family should think about adopting a child from foster care.” “I am proud to say that our state has made great strides in encouraging adoption - advances that have been recognized by the federal government,” the governor said. “Every child deserves a loving and nurturing home. Adoption is a wonderful way to share something that offers tremendous rewards for everyone involved.” Rell has long made adoption one of her top priorities, and has led efforts to improve the state’s support for adoptions. In 2005, Rell established a program to help finance college education for children adopted from foster care and another to offer families counseling assistance when needed. These and other efforts have had an impact, and last month the federal government announced a $511,354 grant to Connecticut for improving the number of foster care adoptions. During state fiscal years 1997 to 2005, an average of 615 permanent homes (through adoptions and subsidized guardianships) were found annually for children in foster care. In every year since, more than 800 permanent homes were found. In 2009, there were 863 homes found, including 643 adoptions and 220 subsidized guardian-

ships. In addition, the timeliness of adoptions also has improved dramatically. Since the first quarter of 2004, the percentage of children adopted within two years has more than tripled. “Improvements have clearly been made - not just in the number of adoptions, but also in the timeliness of adoptions and the support for families who adopt,” Department of Children and Families Commissioner Susan I. Hamilton said. “If someone is weighing an international adoption, they should consider the advantages of adopting a child from foster care.” There are no legal fees involved in foster adoptions and most families who adopt a child from foster care receive a subsidy to pay for costs of raising the child and medical insurance as well as receive significant financial support for secondary education. National Adoption Month is one important part of Connecticut’s effort to create public awareness about foster adoption. A number of initiatives are underway, including: - Radio coverage: At least 18 radio stations and networks across Connecticut will be airing interviews with adoptive parents and department staff to educate the public about the joys and benefits of adoption; and - Adoption Day: On Nov. 20, Probate Courts in several parts of the state will be partnering with the department to finalize adoptions in open court so that the news media can tell the stories about children becoming legally permanent members of their new families. Anyone interested in learning more about becoming a foster or adoptive parent should call 1-888-KIDHERO.

Rep. Fontana honored by AARP Rep. Fontana received AARP’s Legislative Achievement Award for his work on legislation championing state health care reform during the 2009 state legislative session — the Connecticut Healthcare Partnership (House Bill 6582) and SustiNet (House Bill 6600). Both bills were vetoed by Gov. Rell, but the Democrats overrode the governor’s veto on SustiNet. “We have made some real progress this year, but our current health care system still costs too much and leaves out too many people,” Fontana said. “I look forward to working with AARP in continuing the fight for lower health care costs and expanded health insurance choices for all Connecticut residents.”

Town should enforce leaf rules To the editor: Ah, Fall is here in New England. The air is crisp, the scenery is colorful. Time to prepare for Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving dinner, and dodging leaf piles in the road. In North Haven (and I’m sure other towns that pickup loose leaves), they want you to place the leaves at the curb, not in the road. But yet people blow the leaves into the road. In my neighborhood, mostly it’s not the residents I see doing it, it’s the people they hire. Why? I don’t know, I won’t speculate; but some people may possibly not be aware of the North Haven rule regarding this. This bugs me for a few safety reasons: 1. What’s under the leaves? There is one pile nearby that has bundles of branches in it. I’ve also heard (unconfirmed) reports of cars getting seriously damaged because rocks and bricks were hidden under the leaves. 2. Takes up public parking spots. 3. Makes the road that much narrower, and you have to drive into oncoming traffic to avoid it. Case in point: there is a house on Ridge Road, near the school. As we all know, Ridge is already a narrow busy road to begin with. 4. When storms come in, the wind and rain blows the wet leaves all around on the road. Wet leaves covering a road is just as bad as ice. 5. Finally, it just doesn’t look very nice. OK, this isn’t a safety issue, but the town really should start enforcing the rule.

Rotary Club president Nick Casella, and one of Clintonville’s third grade dictionary recipients, Dominic Biondi.

when four friends met for lunch in Chicago,” said Rotarian Guy Casella, Nick’s younger brother. “They said to each other ‘what can we do to help out?’ And they decided that they could help a lot of kids. They would buy books, pencils, pens, and shoes for kids. Helping – that’s what we’re all about.” Nick also put in a good word for the students’ principal. “You are incredibly fortunate to have a principal like Ms. Dowling,” he said. “She is a very special person.” Afterward, the Rotarians began to disseminate the new, bright red Webster’s dictionaries. Once each student ob-

tained their own copy, Nick asked them how they might make use of the dictionaries. One third grader suggested that they could get information from the books. Another said that the dictionaries could provide definitions. “You can also use them to look up how to pronounce words,” Nick said. “That’s called phonetics.” Before the students departed with their new resources, Nick invited each to their club’s Nov. 8 pancake breakfast fundraiser. Afterward, the Rotarian president said that the dictionary drive was a component of the local and national clubs’ literacy initiatives. “It’s a part of the Rotary Club’s worldwide literary project,” he said. “Our local rotary club has been doing it for five years now.”

“It’s clearly very doable,” the president added. “It’s rewarding to see the kids’ faces when you hand out the books.” Nick believed that the drive was even more important as it gave the kids a tool that could stay with them for life. “These books will stay with them for many years to come,” he said. “We literally have had parents tell us ‘that book from five years ago, my child still uses it. It’s in their book bag.’” As they had also gifted books to every third grader in the Hamden schools, regardless of whether the student was from North Haven, the Rotarians have handed out approximately 300 free dictionaries this year.

Brockett who lived in a hut at the northern base of the mountain. “Peter’s Rock is sentimental to me because it was a favorite place for my parents,” recalled Audrey McClure, secretary to the association and long time town resident. “When my father was courting my mother, he carved their initials in a tree along one of the trails back in 1918. I love this place very much.” Nearly 120 people attended the festival. Throughout the afternoon, there was a constant flow of visitors who came and enjoyed delicious food provided by Guilio’s Restaurant, took guided or self-guided hikes along the different trails, including the scarecrow trail which was very popular. The children enjoyed selecting pumpkins from the pumpkin patch and decorating them with markers and stickers. They also had the chance to guess how many miniature pumpkins were in a container. Everyone who guessed received a complimentary prize, and the winner received an additional reward. “The children enjoyed decorating the pumpkins and the guessing contest,” said Joanne Chvisuk, a board member. “There were decorated pumpkins ranging from the scariest to the prettiest. This was a creative idea I got from being a mom. The children had a lot of fun and so did I.” Many people remarked on the beauty of the park, and the brick memorial walkway

near the pavilion, as well as the nicely built bridges on some of the trails. Others commented on the convenient location and expressed how they enjoyed coming to the festival with their families. “Peter’s Rock is a special spot for families to gather, take a hike, and to appreciate an esthetic place located in North Haven,” said Selectman Michael Freda. “The kaleidoscope of foliage at this time of year adds to the overall beauty of this majestic place.” “The park is a great overview of the New Haven area,” said Hugh Davis, a member of the association. “A person can partake in good exercise while hiking the trails and admiring the beautiful vista.” The fall festival was a wonderful event that took place on a picture perfect day, and it was a fine way for the association’s board members to express their gratitude to the community for their assistance and appreciation of the park. Many who have hiked its trails have often said that Peter’s Rock is truly North Haven’s crown jewel of open space. “It was a spectacular day to climb to the top,” said Jeanne Collier, a North Haven resident. “My daughter Kristine Roberts and I enjoyed the lovely view. We tend to the organic garden and it’s a labor of love. We are happy to have this wonderful place in our town.” For more information on Peter’s Rock, please write to Peter’s Rock Association, Inc.

silent auction will include at least 10 high-end items. The regular raffle will include at least 35 items, and there will also be a 50/50 raffle. McKenna added that many people involved with Johnson’s landscaping side business have also helped. Luigi’s Apizza owner Joseph Abate is holding a raffle to benefit Johnson’s family, with prizes including a 32-inch, flat-screen television, a Vine’s Wine gift basket, and restaurant gift cer-

tificates. For Abate, the impetus to help came from a personal experience with tragedy. “Back in April, my son-inlaw Sgt. Andy Sanchez passed away from cancer,” he said, “and people rallied around me and my daughter. People held a motorcycle run in his memory, and it was very successful. There was so much support. The funeral was awesome. There were hundreds of police officers and other people.” “So when I see something like that, it touches me,” Abate continued. “Because of all the good that people

Final soccer game ends with a win, but still shy of postseason play By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen North Haven High School boys’ varsity soccer defeated the Wilbur Cross Governors 1-0 Nov. 2 at the Indians’ athletics complex, in a match up largely dominated by the home team. It was the final game of the season for both teams, as the two squads missed the postseason. From the opening whistle, North Haven established authority. Indian Istvan Kanyo fed the ball downfield to captain RT Iadarola, who produced several shots on goal. The push earned the home team the first of their numerous corner kicks, and Marlon Rafael lofted the corner fruitlessly over several teammates who lunged at the shot for a header. North Haven’s Keegan Hanlon, Rich Mauri, and Colby Jennings combined on offense and defense to push the action into the visitor’s half of the field. However, Wilbur Cross’ defense, behind Dumaru Kamara, continued to do just enough to keep the Indians off the scoreboard. At 11 minutes into the first 40-minute half, North Haven’s Steve Albert fed Mauri a ball right in front of the Wilbur Cross goal. Mauri’s shot was lofted high and over the net, which would become a common occurrence as the frigid day produced tightened reflexes. The visitors finally began to push into North Haven territory at the 25-minute mark. Governor Hakeem Drake became open to the left of the goal, and sent a shot sailing over the top of the net. A minute later, teammate Fabio DosAnjos also found himself with a good look to the side of the goal, but his kick zipped past the net’s opening. North Haven quickly pressed back, and very nearly scored after a Wilbur Cross miscue. As the ball softly rolled toward his net,

visiting goalkeeper Guillermo Plata called for the ball. However, a teammate stopped the ball and poorly cleared it before Plata could pick up the ball. Mauri alertly intercepted the bad kick, but sent his shot just wide of the net. After a series of Indian corner kicks and deep throw-ins were thwarted, Albert fed a terrific pass to Hanlon, who shook off two defenders before the net. With only the goalie to beat, Hanlon once again lifted a North Haven shot over the goal. The Indians continued to keep the ball in Wilbur Cross territory, behind strong defense from Kanyo, Jennings, Kevin Bucknall, and Justin Hoffman. North Haven goalkeeper Chris Musco barely touched the ball in the first half, as the Indian defenders swiftly stymied every Wilbur Cross attempt at offense. At the seven-minute mark, Indian Hayrullah Gozcu booted a ball off the right Wilbur Cross goalpost. During the next four minutes, North Haven was awarded three corner kicks, but all were cleared by the Governors. As the first half wound down, Indian captain Marquis Goodwin rocketed a wide shot that traveled just beyond goal’s opening. The referees signaled for halftime and both teams met with their coaches, North Haven undoubtedly aggravated that their early dominance had resulted in a 0-0 tie. The Indians started the second half by reestablishing their superior offense. Good ball movement between Indian Marlon Rafael and Hanlon generated a feed for Albert before the net. However, Albert headed the ball over the goal. Moments later, Hanlon broke free of his defender and raced downfield, uncovered with the ball. Unfortunately, the referee ruled the Indian offside, the first of

several such penalties that would halt second-half home team drives. Drake very nearly put the visitor’s ahead at the 33minute mark. The beneficiary of a loose ball in front of net, Drake punted the ball directly into the top North Haven goalpost. Moments later, two violent plays in quick succession did not leave anybody seriously hurt. A minute after Albert was legally laid out on his back by a Governor defender, Wilbur Cross’ Miguel Blake collided at full speed with Musco. Blake was sent flipping forward over Musco. Fortunately, all three players were able to walk off the hard hits. Then a kick struck Jennings in the face at close distance at the 23-minute mark, but the defender was also able to continue on. Rafael took a quality shot on goal at the 12-minute mark, but it curved directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. Finally, at the five-minute mark, the Indians cashed in one of their many opportunities. North Haven’s Kevin Anderson wrestled the ball away from two defenders before their goal and quickly jetted a pass to Hanlon, who angled the ball into the far side of the net for the 1-0 lead. Hanlon almost doubled the score a minute later, having been fed a high ball from Mauri. Unfortunately, Hanlon’s twisting header once again flew over the goal. As the clock stopped with two minutes remaining, Wilbur Cross attempted one last, frenzied push forward. However, Kanyo and the rest of the North Haven defense held strong, and the Indians claimed the 1-0 victory. With the loss, Wilbur Cross fell to 2-12-0. The victory bumped up North Haven’s record to 4-8-4, just outside reach of postseason play. “It’s a shame that we’re not in states,” head coach Federico Fiondella said after See Soccer, page 31

NHYF championship Sunday recaps

North Haven’s sixth graders dominated a previously unbeaten Madison Bengal squad to win the Shoreline Youth Football Conference Championship, improve their own unbeaten record to 9-0, and advance to next week’s State Championship games in Meriden. The Indians won the toss and elected to receive, but the Bengals recovered an onside kick at midfield in what was the only thing that went right for them all day. From there they moved backwards 14 yards before giving the ball back with a 6-yard punt. North Haven used the short field to their advantage when Emadi Okwuosa scored a 21yard touchdown around the left side, and Mike Montano added the 2 point after touchdown (PAT) for an 8-0 lead. The rest of the half was played in Madison’s end as each team kept turning it back over to the other on downs. Madison moved into North Haven territory for the only time after taking the second half kick, but turned it over on downs. On the next play, Montano shot through a hole in the middle and took off on a 58-yard romp for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead. After another stalled Bengal drive in their own end, Conor Suraci had three nice

runs while adding a third touchdown to make the final 20-0. North Haven’s eighth graders lost to Guilford 30-6 in their championship game Sunday in Guilford. Things looked good early as North Haven took the opening kick and moved into Guilford’s side of the field, but ultimately were forced to punt. On the next play, Guilford’s #20 took to the near sideline and was gone for a 75-yard touchdown. The kick that followed made it 8-0. In the second quarter, North Haven botched a punt and gave Guilford the ball in close. A couple of plays later #3 ran in a 10-yard touchdown around the right side to build up a 14-0 halftime lead. Guilford’s first drive in the second half stalled, and their punt that followed was blocked. Michael Siwek picked it up for North Haven and ran it back 42 yards for a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-6. Guilford’s #20 would add a 50-yard touchdown run shortly after getting the ball back to open a 22-6 lead after the PAT kick. For good measure, #20 scored on a 42-yard run on 4th and 8 in the fourth quarter to make the final 306. North Haven’s fifth graders lost a heartbreaker Sunday in their SYFC cham-

pionship game in Guilford 13-12 to East Haven. The Indians won the toss, took the opening kick and went right down and scored as Bowen Brennan was taking snaps and directing the offense with power runs up the middle, and Tommy Dodge around the ends. Brennan drove through the middle for a 1-yard touchdown and Tommy Dodge followed with a pass to Carson Tebbetts for an apparent extra point which was negated by a penalty. The second attempt failed so the score was 6-0. The Easties answered back in the second, capitalizing on a Dodge fumble to score a touchdown on a 7yard pass to tie the score at 6 at the half. The game stayed tied until the last play of the third when East Haven pulled a double reverse for a 40-yard touchdown. A pass completion netted the extra point that turned out to be the difference in the game, putting the Easties up 13-6. Late in fourth, Tommy Dodge completed a pair of passes to Michael Gagliardi to help North Haven get down close as time was running out. With 12 seconds left, Dodge rolled out and then threw a 7-yard touchdown to Brennan, but his run for an extra point that also went to the left side was

stopped and East Haven won this game 13-12. The seventh grade team lost the SYFC S u g a r B o w l Championship 2513 in Madison Sunday. Jay J o n e s scored on a 65-yard kick off return and a 23-yard pass from J.B Boggs. Richie Dep a l m a , Steven Rollier, Dominic Fusco and Anthony Gustinello also played well on offense. The defense played strong and was led by Jeff Ranciato, Jordie Fredericks, Vinny Landolfi and Matt Coppolla. North Haven fourth graders finished the season with a 27-0 win over North Branford in a SYFC consolation game on Sunday to finish with a 7-2 record. Gabe Martinez started the scoring with a touchdown run. Martinez also had an interception return for a touchdown.

Mark Montano helped North Haven go up 13-0 with a long interception returned for a touchdown. Nick Perillie added a score to put North Haven up 20-0. Andrew Puzone capped the scoring at 27-0, when he picked up a North Branford fumble and ran it in from 15 yards out. The defense did not allow North Branford to cross mid field, and posted their fifth shut out of the season. It was a solid performance, and a great season for all. —Submitted by Ed Tantorski and Kevin Pataky

“I recognize the significance of influencing young children about climate change,� she said. “It will help children grow up with a green philosophy.� “They will think that living green is normal,� GarleyErb added. “That’s how my husband and I are trying to live.� Accordingly, the Oct. 24 event was family-friendly,

with pumpkin decorating, snacks, cider, coffee, kids’ yoga lessons, pumpkin rides, and pedicab rides. “That’s what made this event so exciting,� GarleyErb said. “Carolyn focused on families.� In addition to the event, Dumont recently spoke with her daughter’s combined second-and-third grade class at Ridge Road Elementary School. She was impressed with the youngsters’ enthusiasm for pro-green lifestyle choices.

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 XXVI After placing the diamond back in the jewel box, Mrs. Kensington caught a glimpse of Monsieur Monnerat watching her from outside on the terrace. She pretended not to recognize his presence, and instead, she graciously left the room. After Mrs. Kensington was gone, Monsieur Monnerat entered the drawing room and very cunningly went over to the desk, and took into his hands

the jewel box. He opened it and was delighted to see the diamond. Then he took the diamond, slipped it into his coat pocket, and made his escape like a thief in the night. Lydia Johnson, who had emerged from hiding in the shadows, pursued Monsieur Monnerat from behind. In the meantime, Mrs. Kensington, who was watching Monsieur Monnerat’s every move, returned to the drawing room and retrieved the box. She opened it and placed another diamond inside. Then Mrs. Kensington went over to the chess game and moved another chess piece with great satisfaction. “I have succeeded in deceiving that greedy and pathetic Frenchman in thinking that he has the Winfield diamond in his possession. Unbeknownst to him, I possess the real diamond while he has an imitation made out of glass. Well done, Phoebe, I am indeed still master of the game,” she laughed to her-

then examined him to make sure he was dead, and before she left, she scrawled the word “Judas” in the dirt next to his body. She called David “Judas” because in her mind he was a traitor to her and Theodore. When Lydia returned to the present, she skillfully began to search Monsieur Monnerat’s pockets for the diamond that she saw him steal from Mrs. Kensington’s jewel box. After she had recovered the diamond, Monsieur Monnerat opened his eyes. Before he could react, Lydia hit him in the head with a rock causing Monsieur Monnerat to lie still with blood streaming down his face. After committing her heinous deed, she slithered like a snake out of the barn and into the pouring rain. The next day the sun was shining but the ground was still wet from the heavy rain the night before. A handful of

friend Theodore or for me, the woman who has treated you like a member of the family? I demand an explanation,” shouted an angry Lydia. “Charity and Mr. Higgins do not deserve to die. My late friend Theodore and I have wronged Mr. Higgins for murdering his daughter Elizabeth and her Redcoat boyfriend because we judged them to be traitors to this country. Charity is an innocent in all of this, and she has suffered enough. Wasn’t Theodore’s attempt on her life enough? The war is over and there is no need for further bloodshed. You are a bitter, wicked, and deranged woman who I want nothing more to do with,” ranted David. As he turned in an attempt to leave the barn, an enraged Lydia took hold of a pitch fork and viciously stabbed him in the back. David cried out in agony, and then fell to the ground and died.

self. As Monsieur Monnerat was making his way down the road, it began to rain heavily so he sought shelter in a dilapidated barn. Once inside, he made a bed out of hay and then he soon fell asleep. A short time later the barn door opened, and a lethal Lydia crept quietly inside. She stood over Monsieur Monnerat, and as she stared at him sleeping like a baby, she began to remember the day that she and David Cobb had a confrontation in the barn adjacent to Andrews Tavern. Lydia painfully recalled arguing with David, who had come to the barn after he had survived his fall from the bridge on Muddy River. Lydia was very displeased with his failed attempt to kill me and Mr. Higgins as she had ordered him to do. “Why didn’t you kill that witch Charity and that foolish old man Higgins?

Friday, November 6, 2009 — The North Haven Citizen

Patriots Continued from page 28 townspeople, including Lt. Bradford and me, attended Mr. Higgins’ burial. The Rev. Benjamin Trumbull presided over the service. Mr. Higgins was buried on his property under the oak tree where he had buried Elizabeth and Edmund some years before. As the wooden coffin was lowered into the ground, I thought to myself that Mr. Higgins and Elizabeth, the daughter he had disowned in life, were sadly together in death. My heart was heavy with sadness, and I had a vanquished feeling that death had been triumphant these past few days claiming Mr. Higgins and Charlotte, two people who were victims of tragic circumstances. After the service, Lt. Bradford and I went to the Rising Sun Tavern to have a light meal and to take a respite before returning to Kensington Hall. While we were sitting at our table, the lieutenant and I overheard some tradesmen talking about expansion and settlement in the Ohio Valley. They mentioned that several people from New Haven, as well as some farmers from North Haven and Wallingford, were heading to the valley to acquire new land and seek a new way of life. When I hinted to the lieutenant that leaving Kensington Hall and relocating to

a new place sounded like a refreshing and adventurous idea to explore, he told me adamantly to put such a ridiculous thought out of my mind. He reminded me that we were needed at our present positions especially for Charles’ sake. I did not speak another word about the matter, but I continued to listen to what the tradesmen were saying about the subject. At Winchester Park, an elated Honoria Noble was running through the beautifully manicured grounds with a handsome Ethan Fairchild playfully chasing after her. Honoria, who was not watching where she was going, tripped over a fallen branch and stumbled to the ground. Ethan came upon her and they were laughing while trying to catch their breath. While leaning over Honoria, Ethan admired the lovely and charming young lady on the ground before him. He gently kissed her on the lips. Honoria was delighted by the kiss. Their moment of bliss was suddenly interrupted by the unexpected appearance of an older but elegantly refined looking couple, who was staring at them with discerning eyes and a solemn and shocked expression upon their faces. When we had returned to Kensington Hall, Lt. Bradford and I found the entire household in an upheaval. The servants were frantically searching for Charles who was nowhere to be found. When Mrs. Kensington saw

its pro-green measures to children and the public even after her event and the Copenhagen conference. “I’d like to get Ridge Road Elementary, or any other school interested, to become a school,” she said. Dumont was pleased with her pro-environment event. “We definitely accomplished our goal,” she said, “which was to bring awareness to the community and have a photo to share with and their ongoing work. It was also a lot of fun.”

great fall. The lieutenant carried a frightened, but unharmed, Charles inside and placed him in my arms. As I held Charles and tried to comfort him, all I could ponder in my mind was Dr. Greenville’s warning about misery and death dwelling in this place. I then asked myself the inevitable question of whether this madness will ever end. In the meantime, Lt. Bradford and the servants went to see about the fate of the bandaged man. They searched the entire area where he had fallen diligently, but they found no trace of him. It was like he had simply disappeared. To be continued…

us, she desperately begged for our assistance. The lieutenant and I looked at each other, and then instantaneously, we both surmised that for some unknown reason, Charles must have wandered into the east wing. We both hurried to the east wing while I was praying that our assumption was incorrect. When we arrived at the east wing, we found a stunned Dr. Greenville who informed us that Charles was in danger. Then we heard Charles’ cry for help. We followed the boy’s cry leading us to a room at the far end of the east wing. The room had a balcony and its doors were wide open. As we looked out onto the balcony, to our horror, we saw the bandaged man carrying a sobbing Charles along the ledge. A frantic Lt. Bradford went after them. Having no place to go, the bandaged man stood still for a moment after he had placed Charles down by his side while holding his hand. When the lieutenant caught up to them, the bandaged man shouted for him to stay away. Then he began to rant that he needed his freedom, and he was taking Charles with him. As Lt. Bradford tried to reason with him, the bandaged man became angry and started to stomp his feet. Suddenly, the ledge gave way. A quick thinking Lt. Bradford grabbed a hold of Charles just as the ledge crumbled from under the bandaged man causing him to take a

All sale proceeds will benefit the team’s upcoming 10-day trip to Italy. Fiondella said that the team will have approximately 1,000 items for sale, including children’s books and puzzles, videos and DVDs, educational books, adult and young adults novels, and health books. The items will have low prices. The coach added that the team got involved with the Rotary Club last year after the team asked them to help sell tickets for their annual “Cow Chip” event. Fiondella was thankful for the club’s continued assistance, and was hopeful for the Nov. 8 event. “We are very grateful for the Rotary’s support,” Fiondella said. “It should be a great day for all North Haven families.” The team will depart for Italy in July, Fiondella said, with 35 players and 25 chaperones. The trip will include participation in a soccer tournament, as well as site seeing, food, and the Italian culture, according to Fiondella. “The itinerary includes Rome, Milan, Venice, Lake Cuomo, Rimini, and San Marion, where the tournament will be held,” he said. The Rotary Club’s pancake breakfast will be at the middle school from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
