Juror reports similar themes, starkly different lives By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven resident Lenus Gibbs, 65, was one of 12 jurors who recommended the death penalty last month for Steven Hayes. Like all jury members, Gibbs underwent self-examination as he listened to case details and deliberated on verdict decisions. In a way, similar themes of violence and family could be seen throughout both Gibbs and Hayes’ lives. In October, Gibbs and his peers convicted Hayes, 47, of 16 felony charges for raping and strangling Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, and killing her daughters Hayley and Michaela, 17 and 11 respectively, during a 2007 Cheshire home invasion. Hayes and his co-defendant, Joshua Komisarjevsky, allegedly tied both girls to beds and doused the house in gaso-

line before lighting it aflame. Komisarjevsky, who will go on trial next year, is also charged with beating the lone survivor, Dr. William Petit Jr., 50, with a baseball bat and tying him up in the house’s basement. Petit freed himself and sought help for his trapped family as his home burned. Jury members studied pictures of victims’ remains and heard in gruesome detail about Hayes’ and Komisarjevsky’s unsettling crimes. Some evidence and facts disturbed jurors so greatly that several underwent counseling as Hayes’ trial unfolded. Gibbs did not require such aid. “It was a horrible, heinous crime,” he said Nov. 27. “But all the evidence they showed me, I’ve seen worse.” A juror selected Last January the jury selection began. Contacted by mail, Gibbs forgot and did not attend first round inter-

views sessions. “When I realized that I missed it, I called up and they told me I could come in for the second round in May,” he said. In second round interviews, court officials asked Gibbs his opinion on the death penalty. “I told them I had no concept of the death penalty,” he said, “I had no knowledge one way or the other, because I had never given it even basic thought, like what does it accomplish, good or bad.” Additionally, a judge queried whether Gibbs knew of Hayes. “The only thing I knew was that this crime had happened, that he had broken into a house and killed some girls and their mother,” Gibbs said. “I don’t watch too much local news, only international news. I stay away from the local stuff because it’s so depressing.” Each potential juror had chance to explain themselves and Gibbs ex-

pressed fatherly devotion. “One thing I told the judge was that I have two sons and two daughters, and I would do anything in this world to protect them,” he said. “I wanted them to know that,” he continued. “If it got me off the case, it got me off the case, but I wanted them to know that.” After discussions the judge and legal representatives met before returning with the selections. “The judge said, ‘Mr. Gibbs, you’re a primary juror,’” Gibbs said. “I was just shocked. It was all kind of shocking.” “But it was also an honor,” he added. As part of the process, potential jurors explained their lives, past and present. “I was in the Air Force. I spent 26 years in there,” Gibbs said.

Football season over for North Haven High School after quarterfinal loss in state tourney By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

As light rain soaked a postgame player circle on the field, North Haven High School seniors in mud-caked pads and uniforms became teary-eyed. Following a 19-7 playoff defeat to higher-seeded Daniel Hand, their season, and high school football careers, had concluded. “Underclassmen, I want you to find a senior and thank him,” said NHHS head coach Anthony Sagnella, centered in the huddle. “That will be you someday.” Beginning 2010 with a 0-12 loss to Hill House, NHHS collected nine consecutive wins enroute to a seventh-seeded

quarterfinals appearance in CIAC’s Class L state tournament Nov. 31. Daniel Hand held home team advantage at Madison’s Surf Club field. Windy conditions swept cold air off Long Island Sound and across spectator stands and the soggy gridiron. Drizzle completed a raw and chilly atmosphere. Mark Zurlis kicked off for the Indians. His shoe flew off, and the ball traveled only several dozen yards, where NHHS players recovered it from surprised Tiger blockers. However, as would happen all night, Daniel Hand’s defensive line stymied North Haven offense and forced a

North Haven’s Rotary Club was one of 23 Connecticut Rotary organizations which formed a financial partnership with Liberty Bank to raise money for local food banks before Thanksgiving. With a corporate pledge of 25 cents toward every dollar raised, Assistant Vice President Mark Piscitelli, Washington Avenue’s Liberty Bank branch manager, presented a check last week to Rev. Scott Morrow, who oversees a community Food Pantry at North Haven’s Congregational Church, where he serves as pastor. Morrow indicated that although North Haven’s food bank was established 17 years ago, the holiday food drive began about 30 years ago and was originally housed at a fire station, as it was run by department volunteers. He also reported that nearly 90 families in town have registered for assistance this holiday season,

row. He recently told the Rotary club that he felt “privileged to represent the town in this way,” and added that the holiday drive’s success each year “reflects well on the community.” Furthermore, he emphasized that the food bank drive is ongoing

one of the highest numbers in his memory, although there are only 35 families who have been served through the Food Pantry on a regular basis. Some recipients must make tough choices to determine whether they feed their families, or pay their bills, according to Mor-

Friendly’s restaurant hosts fundraiser for Friends of the Library By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

The general manager and staff at Friendly’s Restaurant on Washington Avenue recently hosted a fundraiser for the Friends of the North Haven Library, drawing a large crowd. “I contacted Gina Falcigno, one of the presidents of the Friends, and asked if we could host a fundraiser for her organization,” stated Scott Samborn, Friendly’s general manager and a North Haven resident. “The Friends do a tremendous amount of work for the North Haven Library in supporting and sponsoring programs for adults and children.”

reasonable prices in a casual dining atmosphere.” Samborn is pleased that the restaurant has its steady and regular customers, and several of them attended the fundraiser with their families. At least 14 or more booths were occupied with smiling faces, good conversation and delicious meals. “I think this is a great event and I brought my daughter Evelyn and my sons John and Ben with me tonight. I enjoy the soup and salad especially the buffalo salad, and my children enjoy the milkshakes and the hamburgers,” said June Fisher, a North Haven resident and attendee. “This fundraiser will certainly help the library.” The Friends’ tri-presidents Claudia Giulietti, Kim Carew and Gina Falcigno were appreciative with the turn-out and grateful for the assistance and personal service provided by Samborn and his staff. It was a town event in which a local business and its employees were reaching out to the community.

“Tonight’s event is a very worthwhile and beneficial fundraiser that brings the community together with families having a good meal while contributing to a good cause,” explained Falcigno. “The proceeds from tonight and other fundraisers go directly to assist programs and services for the library.” The Friends of the Library is an active group of dedicated volunteers and has 600 members. There are monthly meetings held on the third Thursday evening of the month in the community room at the library and new members are always encouraged to join. The concept of three presidents is working out nicely, according to Giuletti, because there is always someone available to take charge. She added that they share the work load and have similar ideas and suggestions that make what working together a pleasure. “I love being a member of the Friends and my family enjoys coming to Friendly’s,” stated Bernadette Laubach, a

“I believe in supporting nonprofit organizations and the fire and police in the work they do for our community,” he added. “It’s great to volunteer and give something back.” Samborn further explained that 10 to 15 percent of the sales (meals ordered by customers) would go to the library. The event took place on a Tuesday evening from 5 to 8 p.m. He and Falcigno worked on the event for an entire month, putting things in place and getting the word out, and the response was good. “Friendly’s Restaurant has a long history in New England and was established in 1935 in Massachusetts, offering a family friendly atmosphere with a great staff and wonderful clientele,” said Samborn. “The original menu from 1935 consisted of ice-cream and hotdogs and hamburgers, but today we offer a variety of meals including a healthier menu with salads and a fantastic breakfast including eggs and bacon, pancakes and waffles at

We are enjoying a delicious meal, having fun, and the children can’t wait to have ice-cream for dessert.” “It’s nice to be among our friends and neighbors of North Haven having a good time while giving something back to the community,” she added.

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 13 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

After a few moments of silence, the dining room door slowly opened and Alexander appeared in the entrance. When Constance asked for an explanation for the breaking of glass, the scream, and us being locked in the room, Alexander smiled and told us that a servant was startled by a mouse and dropped a tray she was carrying. He did not have an explanation to why Constance and I were locked in the dining room. As Constance continued to pursue her husband, Alexander politely excused himself and returned to the drawing room where Louise and Jean-Luc were waiting for him. Frustrated by her husband’s behavior, Constance decided that she and I needed to leave Singleton Lodge for a short while. “My dear friend, I do believe that we need to go out but where shall we go? I’ve heard that Laura Corday is doing wonderful work with the less fortunate, and we must go and see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.� Constance sent for the carriage, and within a short time we were on our way to New Haven. I was curious

about what Alexander, Louise, and Jean-Luc were doing at Singleton Lodge and about the room down the hall from my room, but I did not reveal my thoughts to Constance, who was enjoying the carriage ride. When we arrived at Bickford Mansion, where Laura Corday was residing, we saw a group of children playing outside under the watchful eyes of a handful of servants. The driver helped us out of the carriage, and I followed Constance to the front door. As Constance was about to knock, the door opened, and we were greeted by a tall gentleman. He took us down a long hallway and into a cozy sitting room where we waited for Laura. As we waited, a man dressed in a clergyman’s outfit entered. He had dark hair and dark eyes to match. He introduced himself as Reverend Davenport, and explained that his church was down the street. He said he and members of his congregation admired Laura Corday for her assistance and generosity towards the less fortunate. “Miss Corday’s benevolent efforts to give shelter, food, and clothing to the unwanted and misfortune souls of our society are exemplary acts of Christian kindness. The members of my congregation are very pleased to

know her. She has shown that anyone can find redemption and share his or her good fortune with others,� said Reverend Davenport in a condescending manner. While he talked, I thought it a bit odd and improper for him to be referring to Laura’s actions as repentance for any of her past indiscretions. I also wondered why he was talking about Laura to me and Constance — two strangers whom he was unacquainted with. His presence made me feel somewhat uneasy. Constance took the initiative by changing the conversation and talking about the possibility of a national bank and the terrible events in Paris. The Reverend seized the moment to express his opinions on both subjects. “A national bank may succeed or it may fail. People need to take care of their own finances. Greed is the root to all evil, but sadly, money is vital for survival in this cold and cruel world. Please, let us not speak of the horrific occurrences in Paris, a city of beauty and culture now transformed into a place of corruption, violence, and death,� he replied with disapproval in his voice. We were spared from any further discussions by Reverend Davenport

when Laura entered the room. She gave Constance and me a cheerful greeting and expressed how delighted she was to see us. Constance apologized for our unannounced visit and told Laura that she and her husband wanted to offer financial assistance with her charitable endeavor. Laura was elated by Constance’s willingness to help. She graciously took us on a tour of the place and introduced us to her staff and some of the women and children residing at Bickford Mansion. Reverend Davenport accompanied us, and seemed quite taken with Constance. I saw a little boy sitting under a tree with his head between his knees. As I approached him, he raised his head, and tears were flowing down his cheeks. Laura whispered to me that his name was Seth and both his parents had perished in a shipwreck. He had been living with an abusive uncle who drank himself to death. Laura explained how they found him wandering the streets covered in dirt from head to toe. When they took him in, he would hide in the corner like a frightened animal. It took some time before he showed any in-

marches, because if you go to the marches, you could get killed.’ It was a racial thing back then. That’s basically how I got into the Air Force.” Enlisted jobs in the U.S. Air Force can include supply, logistics, fueling, safety, food service and intelligence fields, as well as medical practices, including mortuary duties, which was Gibbs’ assignment for over two decades. After training in Delaware, Gibbs was shipped to Okinawa, Japan and then to a U.S. base in Korat, Thailand, a country which borders Vietnam. Gibbs served during the Vietnam War and encountered violence regularly. Part of his duties included recovery of bodies from battlefields near and far. “In 1967, someone committed suicide in a dorm room,” he said. “Seven days later, we went in and found him.” “Sometimes, the remains were spread out all over the terrain,” he added. “Our job was to go in and get the body, get the remains. We wanted the body because we wanted to make sure that person got a proper burial,” Gibbs explained. Both America’s presence in Vietnam and Gibbs’ air force active duty eventually concluded. In October 1991, a job placement agency landed Gibbs a New Haven position with CT Transit, the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s bus service wing. He worked his way up to a supervisory role on a team which surveys collision sites. “We are responsible for the investigation of accidents, claims and complaints,” he said. “I visit crash scenes, violent scenes.” “We had one incident on Whitney Avenue where a truck ran smack into the driver’s end of a bus, and crushed the truck’s cab from four feet to one foot,” he added. “He had been running from the cops.” Such experiences allowed Gibbs to avoid physical sickness when viewing gory crime scene pictures in Hayes’ trial. “I was not disturbed by the photographs,” he said. “I was just trying to figure out what would make a

Embarrassed and irritated by the Reverend’s unsympathetic words, Laura recommended that we go inside to take tea with her. As we made our way towards the mansion, Seth came running after us. He grabbed a hold of the Rev-

The bank’s public release explains that since the partnership with Rotary began six years ago, “it has provided more than $365,000 to put turkey and all the trimmings on the tables of families in need.� More than a quarter of the funds donated by Liberty Bank since 2004 were turned over to Rotary clubs in the fall of 2008, which caused the president of Rotary International to recognize the holiday drive with its “Best Cooperative Program Award� for that year. The bank’s promotional literature also states, “Your generosity will make your own Thanksgiving dinner taste even better.�

Free program at Historical Society

On Monday, Dec. 6, at 6:30 p.m., the North Haven Historical Society will sponsor a program on “Native American Archeology in Connecticut.” Native Americans have been in Connecticut for at least 11,000 years. This lecture is an overview of the Native American settlements in the state from the earliest known site to today, based on archaeological evidence. Nicholas F. Bellantoni, Ph.D., state archeologist, will provide an interesting and informative lecture on this topic. Dr. Bellantoni serves as the state archaeologist with the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Archaeology Center at the University of Connecticut. He received his doctorate in anthropology from UConn in 1987 and was shortly thereafter appointed state archaeologist. His duties are many, but primarily include the preservation of archaeological sites in the state. His re-

search background is the analysis of skeletal remains from eastern North America. He has been excavating in Connecticut for over 30 years. This presentation will be held at the North Haven Masonic Lodge, 30 Church St., and is free to the public and handicap accessible.

Food banks Holidays are traditionally a time for charity and generosity, and in this increasingly-tough economy there are more Connecticut residents in need of assistance than ever. Food banks pro-

The Food Bank has a freezer, and is able to accept frozen turkeys, as well and canned and boxed food year round. For more information on donating to the North Haven Food Bank, please call (203) 239-5321, ext 780.

person do this, how and why they could actually do something like this.” Broken families Dr. Eric Goldsmith, a psychiatrist and witness for Hayes, testified that the defendant had been raised in a dysfunctional family, with an abusive father and alcoholic mother. Hayes was beaten by his father and sexually assaulted as a 10-year-old by a baby sitter, according to Goldsmith, possible catalysts behind a life of crime, drugs and sexual confusion, and his slaying of Petit’s wife and daughters. Gibbs could relate with familial strife. “I was abused by my father,” he claimed. “He beat me. He made me work for his money. I worked whatever he wanted me to do. I really didn’t start school until I was 12.” “That was not going to happen when I was a father,” he continued. “I wanted my kids to have a better life than I had. I didn’t want them to go through what I had to go through.” Family struggles affected both men, and as with many jurors, the trial led Gibbs to consider his own kin. “The case made me think about a lot of things,” he said. “It made me think about Steven

It made me wonder, ‘Was my life that harsh?’” Gibbs met his now-ex wife when stationed in Thailand in the 1960s. Each already had a child from previous relationships. However, when Gibbs and his wife moved back to America, her son remained behind. “Her friends said that because I was black and he was from Thailand, it wouldn’t work out,” he said. Later, the couple returned to Thailand partly so that his wife could be with her boy. “I wanted him with us,” Gibbs said. “But it didn’t work out.” “She didn’t have a good relationship with her son,” he claimed. In 1974, Gibbs and his wife split. Together they have three kids. “She still lives in Enfield,” Gibbs said. “I see her sometimes at a friend’s house.

Letters to the Editor

Race against time

To the editor: How much borrowed time is left on the high school’s boilers? Freda quoted $200,000 for one boiler going bad. Why would this be disclosed to the public if boilers don’t need replacement? It’s because they are defective and must be replaced. How many boilers serve the high school? We need to total up the expected bill. The Board of Education spent $43,000 on boiler maintenance last school year (a massive taxpayer cost) sending the message that we have serious boiler problems. That cost will increase, along with a high gas bill, as weakened boilers become stressed this school year. Boilers may fail in the dead of winter, creating a high school shutdown where students must get bussed to other schools. It is a race

against time, knowing pipes may freeze and cause more damage. The situation becomes chaotic and expensive. We need to cross our fingers. We may have run out of time, due to Freda’s inability to address this in a timely manner. It doesn’t take an engineer to know that the boilers are springing up leaks unpredictably, knowing that components are replaceable — but a boiler cannot be repaired if defective. A boiler is defective when fractures and cracks form, causing leaks. Repairs may be considered illegal, for safety concerns. The boiler leaks could have something to do with mold found at the high school. Freda confirmed we have a serious boiler problem at the high school, yet he refuses to do the right thing. I don’t support Freda’s intent to continue with expensive boiler maintenance,

knowing the serious consequences we could face. Is Freda waiting for a disaster to strike? He addresses this issue like all the others — with a patch job (short term fixes) which wastes money. Faith in town leadership to serve us professionally is gone. Morris Pedersen North Haven

ceuticals into septic and sewer systems is not the best practice and can have a negative impact on aquatic life . . . Even after wastewater is treated, trace amounts of pharmaceuticals can make their way into our waters.” Is this coming from the same DEP bureaucrat who is advocating using our Tire Pond in North Haven as a toxic industrial waste facility, and has construction plans “at the ready,” for seven storm water drains and dams to drain these toxins directly into the Quinnipiac River? “Just waiting for our Planning and Zoning Commission to give them the go ahead.” The go ahead is to release the most dangerous carcinogens into our waters and atmosphere — arsenic, lead, ash, slag, coal waste, batteries, empty ammunitions shells, benzene and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Isn’t this a double standard? The DEP is doing to us exactly what it is citing the pharmacy for. But one must realize, the Department of Environmental Protection is

simply a bunch of bureaucrats out for their own gains and North Haven was always an easy mark. This time our Planning and Zoning Commissioners must make the right decision and stop them.

Commentary

Local food banks in dire need of donations this holiday season By Len Fasano The holidays are traditionally a time for charity and gene r o s i t y, and in this increasi n g l y t o u g h Fasano economy there are more Connecticut residents in need of assistance than ever. Food banks provide a helping hand to people in need, but rely heavily on donations from the community. Here are a few ways you can help: The Connecticut Food Bank has distributed more than 200 million pounds of food to six of the eight counties in Connecticut since 1982. Donations come from the food industry, individuals, corporations

and government subsidies. When donations are received at any of their three warehouses, they are sorted and distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters across the state. Drop offs for donations can be made at their East Haven Warehouse at 150 Bradley Street, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or you can contact the Food Bank at (203) 469-5000, or visit ctfoodbank.org The North Haven Food Bank, run by the Department of Community Services & Recreation, receives most of its food supplies from the Connecticut Food Bank, but also relies on donations from individuals and community organizations. The Food Bank has a freezer, and is able to accept frozen turkeys, as well and canned and boxed

Facebook and future

Facebook may one day challenge as the internet’s top name brand product. Begun as an in-house social network for Harvard students, Facebook has grown to include people and entities worldwide. Countless utilize Mark Zuckerberg’s site for relaxation, communication and publicity purposes. We can take for granted the dotcom’s understated effectiveness and capabilities. Thus, news that Zuckerberg may soon receive partial trademark of the word “face” may potentially predict online’s future. In business, refinement generates sophistication and success. Once known as a website which tinkered endlessly with features, Facebook has been polished. Gaudy components are gone, such as bumper stickers and other too-flashy applications. Can anybody remember debates over whether friends should be displayed by top networks, or lumped together? Above all else, Zuckerberg and peers know how we use social networking. Facebook wisely embraces reinvention to draw in more consumers. Once protested, news feed updates now attract interest hourly - arguably Twitter’s progenitor. Swift reaction taken in improving outdated privacy controls shows how serious programmers seek a simplistic, user-friendly creation.

Perhaps more sensible, and foretelling, Zuckerberg has begun connecting with other companies. With a click on suddenlyubiquitous blue “F” buttons, online newspaper articles and other digital copy can be posted directly to accounts (something Twitter also offers). Linking has even included television, a competitor for user attention. Instead of corporate websites, many commercials now just point interested viewers to a business’ Facebook page. That a multi-billion-dollar enterprise has an enormous influence is nothing novel. But Facebook ‘s scope expands exponentially. Avoiding daily mention of Zuckerberg’s domain name is difficult, if not impossible. And, as wireless smart phones become more commonplace, websites can be accessed anywhere and with greater frequency. Across American main roads contain similar chain shops - McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Old Navy, any number of supermarkets, etc. In comparison with centuries-old thoroughfares, the information highway is freshly paved, and has only a few omnipresent outfits, with Google as chief. But search engines and other internet mainstays could eventually have legitimate competition, as Facebook finds ways to solidify control of its niche - digitizing everyday lives.

New walkthrough body scanners at airports are flawed but necessary. Installed recently within terminals nationwide by America’s Travel Security Administration (TSA), scanners display physical contours of subjects who pass through, for checkpoint personnel review. Protestors who claim unnecessary privacy breaches have organized movements which decline such screening. But refusal means a full pat-down, an intrusive and tedious task which causes delays. For brevity and safety’s sakes, travelers should accept examination procedures. Complaints are warranted. Images rendered by scanners have been compared to virtual strip inspections. Pat-downs are not dissimilar from all-encompassing police frisks. In fact, resistance began partly after a YouTube video displayed a man upset with how comprehensively he could have been hand searched. Unquestioned privacy of one’s body is among freedoms humans hold dear. Particularly in public we have right to remain clothed and covered as we choose. And although objectivity is expected in selection of individuals for physical scrutiny, bias could exist in TSA procedures. Airport delays are setbacks already discouraging enough, especially in holiday season. Pat-downs take much more time than simply proceeding through scanners . Taken aside, dissenters pull staff from security duty and cause logjams in lines.

Everybody suffers for a few objectors. Fortunately, outcry to be organized on Thanksgiving was a relative tempest in a teapot, and airline traffic went mostly as usual. Facing real threats, thoroughness in surveillance may be preferable. Amidst a Northwest Airlines flight last Christmas, a radical attempted detonation of explosives sewn into his underwear. Footwear has been examined before plane boarding since 2002’s shoe bomber. Early Septembers has been forever altered. Technology’s evolution has spawned startlingly-sophisticated forms of terrorism, which require heightened attention to details in TSA techniques. While terrorists’ true natures are impossible to understand fully, one wonders whether they might relish U.S. demonstrations against scanners and similar practices. Al-Qaeda and analogous groups certainly seek disturbance of Western life. Sparking commuter unrest over means of danger’s detection could seem a potentially successful disruption, costing USA millions in response to a thousand-dollar threat. Scanners can be avoided by routes other than timeconsuming protestation. For people who dislike TSA methods, there are other forms of transportation cars, buses, trains, etc. We urge that individuals consider airport pat-downs and scanners as safety mechanisms not necessarily ideal, but needful in an imperfect world.

Continued from page 1 three-and-out. “I’ve got to credit their defense,” Sagnella said afterward. “They played hard, as usual. They were a lot more physical than us.” “Their defense is not what they’re touted for, but their defense always plays physical,” he added. Opening quarter action ended without either team scoring. In a drive that spanned the first and second quarters, North Haven sophomore Jalon White leapt over a pile of defenders to convert

a third-and-short. NHHS’ possession ended in Daniel Hand territory, after Madison stuffed a run on fourth down. Senior Nate Alleyne led North Haven in ground yards, carrying 10 times for 61 yards. NHHS struggled to pass all contest, and several Indians together turned in a 4-of-14, 43-yard performance. Madison, too, strained for offensive output until midsecond quarter, when they tallied all 19 points in a span of less than five minutes. On a drive commencing at their 16-yard line, Daniel Hand followed a short run

with an 84-yard end zone strike from quarterback Zach Miller to Leif Colberg, who had blown by several defenders. An extra point made it 7-0. Miller would finish 13of-20 for 238 yards. A long kickoff started North Haven far into their territory. NHHS was forced to pooch punt into strong wind, and Madison began their next drive already at the Indians’ 38-yard line. After Miller hit Nick Vitale underneath for 31 yards, Miller lofted a lob to Alec Pacelli, who turned, leapt and snatched the football for a touchdown grab in the cor-

ner of the end zone. NHHS deflected the point after and Daniel Hand led 13-0. Alleyne and Indian junior quarterback Joe Schwab reeled off a few first downs on North Haven’s subsequent possession, but Madison’s defenders, led by hardhitting linebacker A.J. Hill, forced a punt. Worsening matters, the snap sailed over the head of Schwab, also NHHS’s punter, and he fell on the ball. Daniel Hand took over on North Haven’s 37yard line. Miller and Vitale com-

Thanksgiving victory propels North Haven football to state playoffs By Kevin Pataky Special to the North Haven Citizen

North Haven High School Senior Brandon McLane had the game of his life in helping North Haven defeat Amity 40-24 on Thanksgiving Day, which secured the Indians a state playoff berth. McLane caught two passes for scores, ran for a third and threw a pair of halfback option touchdowns. To open the matchup North Haven kicked off, and on Amity’s first play from scrimmage, Nate Alleyne picked off a pass to give the Indians optimal field possession. Two plays later, NHHS quarterback Joe Schwab connected with a wide-open McLane for a 28-yard touchdown pass. Mark Zurlis kicked the extra point for a 70 lead. Amity kicked a field goal to cut the lead to 7-3 before McLane ran in an eightyard touchdown to make the

Schwab busted in from three yards out on a quarterback keeper to open up a 19-3 lead in the second. A two-

point conversion attempt was unsuccessful. After an Amity turnover near midfield, Schwab again connected with McLane, this time for a 26-yard end zone pass.

Alleyne carried in a 2-point conversion, and at half the score was 27-3. North Haven received the second-half kickoff, but had to punt it away. The Spartans

responded with a drive which culminated in a sevenyard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 27-10. On the next

Indian possession, McLane took a pitch, rolled right and fired a long strike to Eddie Glenn, who knocked over tacklers and eventually fell backwards into the end zone, completing a 64-yard touchdown play for a 33-10 advantage. In the fourth quarter, Amity scored another touchdown to cut the lead to 33-16, but the Indians came right back. After handing off to McLane, Schwab went down field and caught a halfback heave for an 11-yard score. John Scafariello drilled the extra point and North Haven went

up 40-16. Amity added a late score and a two-point pass for conversion to make the final score 40-24. North Haven’s defense was stifling. Brian Maratea added a second quarter interception and Chris Matteis had a fumble recovery. The Indians held Amity’s 1,000yard rusher Kyle Kalanta to only 35 yards. The win was North Haven’s 9th straight after an opening week loss to Hillhouse, setting the school regular season mark with a 9-1 record. The victory placed North Haven in 2010’s Class L State Football playoffs against Daniel Hand (9-1) at the Surf Club.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, December 3, 2010 had a point of view about the case,” Gibbs said. “We read over the evidence, and we tried to understand it.” “We discussed everything over and over, and people gave their views,” he added.

“Not everybody just said guilty, guilty, guilty.” After five hours of debate, jurors found Hayes guilty of 16 of 17 charges he faced, including six capital felonies. “For me, it was all of the things he was involved in from start to finish,” Gibbs said of his own decision for culpability. “He never backed down, even though he claimed he was shocked.” Death penalty decisions took Gibbs and his peers two and a half days. At first, Gibbs believed Hayes’ mental health was reason to avoid such a sentence. “I thought he was severely mentally impaired,” Gibbs said. “That’s what was wrong with him. And I thought he should not get the

death penalty because he had a mental problem.” “We discussed what would have been the best thing for him,” he added. “Was it life in jail? Each and every person brought out an opinion on that, whether he would live a good life in jail. They said he would start in isolation, but when would he be put in general population? Five years? Five months? Then, if he was put in general population, will the other prisoners kill him? Nine out of ten times, yes.” Legal and family considerations finally convinced Gibbs to vote for death. “By law, as we came to understand it, the death penalty was the most appropriate for him,” he said. “He deserved

the death penalty. First, he strangled the mother. And he helped pour the gas on the girls and set the house on fire while they were still alive. For those three things, he deserved the death penalty.” “When it came down to it he deserved the death penalty because of what he did to a family like that,” he added. “There was no reason.” Gibbs remembers Hayes’ reaction to his verdicts. “His face was plain and blank,” he said. “When we announced guilty and the death penalty, I made sure I was looking at him. It did not faze him at all.” “Steven is as he is,” Gibbs

North Haven halted Daniel Hand’s two-point conversion attempt and the Tigers led 19-0. “It looked like we had a bit of a mental lapse,” Sagnella said of Madison’s whirlwind touchdown binge. “The game got away from us, and we had to claw our way back in.” After halftime, North Haven fumbled a kickoff to begin the third quarter, but Zurlis picked off Miller’s

pleasant experience,” Gibbs said. “He was a strong-willed person. And his sister was loving and caring and crying. She was a brave lady.” Today, Gibbs’ children have jobs in finance. Upstairs in his house his grand-

son is singing. As much as anything, Gibbs cares about his family, which he watches over in a sometimes-unpredictable world. Additional reporting by the Record-Journal news staff.

first pass for possession on NHHS’s 25-yard line. The Indians would punt and intercept Miller again – this time Alleyne, who scrambled to North Haven’s 10-yard line. Daniel Hand turned away four Indian attempts for the end zone, including a fourth down pass attempt from Schwab to senior and captain tight end Ed Glenn. NHHS and the Tigers traded scoreless possessions to close the third. Opening the fourth quarter, Schwab, Indian sophomore Jalon White and senior captain running back Chris Matteis brought their squad deep into Madison territory.

Finally, on second-and-goal, Schwab scampered down the sideline for a touchdown, just sneaking into the front corner of the end zone. An extra point made it 19-7, which would prove the final score, as Daniel Hand followed their opponent’s points with a drawn-out, clock-killing drive full of short runs. “They deserved to win,” said Sagnella. “We felt like had to play very well to come away with a win down here. We did play well in spots, and that inconsistency was the difference — that and their tough defense.”
