ceives something.” Carla explained that distribution of collected food

With the holiday season nearly upon us, North Haven’s Department of Community Services and Recreation recently announced that residents can reserve their names for the 2011 Holiday Food Distribution and/or Toy Selection Program. Moreover, contributions to the seasonal collection services are always welcome. “This year there is a great need for donations due to these difficult economic times and we are very grateful to all our donors, including private individuals and families, local businesses and organizations,” stated Carla Riccio, community services secretary. “This year, we’ve seen a decline in donations and an increase in demand. We are trying our very best to see that everyone re-

will take place on Dec. 21 and Dec. 22 from 1-4 p.m. at Linsley Street’s Town Hall Annex building. Requests for food must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19. The Toy Selection Program is for income-eligible North Haven families with children ages 18 and under. Appointments for families to select toys are available between Dec. 19 and Dec. 23. “Families must present a drivers license or photo ID and complete a one page application upon arrival. All appointments are private and this creates confidentiality,” said Carla. “My co-worker Dan Riccio [no relation] and I are here to help anyone who comes to the office. Christmas is a

A North Haven man is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court Dec. 27, accused of stealing almost $100,000 from condominium associations in Meriden and West Haven. Steven Cacioli, 65, of 7 Livingston Drive, was arrested by North Haven police on two warrants Nov. 29 and charged with one count each of firstdegree larceny. The first warrant states that in October the president of the Sterling Village Condo Association in Meriden contacted North Haven police, alleging that Cacioli, owner of A&S Prop-

erty Management of North Haven, had stolen $22,350 from condominium association accounts. Savin Harbor Condo Association in West Haven also contacted North Haven police, alleging that Cacioli had stolen $77,679 from association accounts, according to the second warrant. Cacioli, who is free on $20,000 bond, did not return calls for comment Thursday. Sterling Village had con-

tracted with Cacioli to prepare and submit claims for water damage earlier this year. A check for $75,000 from the insurance company, payable to the association, was mailed to Cacioli’s North Haven office in March, police said. Cacioli then reportedly set up a bank account at a North Haven TD Bank branch in the associa-

Column — A little boy’s talk with Santa By Paul Colella The North Haven Citizen

It was December, 1931, and a little boy sat quietly on a plush sofa in a great room at

Windham’s Department Store in New York City. The boy was so small that his legs stuck out straight before him because they were not long Colella enough to reach the floor. There were many other people in the room, most of them women, some of them leading children by the hand, but none of them said anything to the little boy, or even looked at him. He was lonely, for it was

when through the door walked a tall old man dressed in a red suit with white trim. On his feet were great black boots that came up to his knees, and on his head a tall peaked cap with a tassel that fell over on one side. His face was covered with a long white beard, in which bits of frost sparkled and through which poked a pair of kind eyes. The little boy knew at once that it must be Santa Claus. After standing a moment in the doorway, the tall figure in red caught sight of the wealthy little boy and came over and sat down beside him and placed a hand on his head. “Well,” the figure said. “Are you thinking of what you are going to give Santa Claus this year?” “No, sir,” said the little boy. “I was thinking of what I should ask Santa Claus to give me. And you are Santa Claus! I know because I have seen pictures of you, but I have never seen you before, and I’ve always had to write about what I wanted, and I

can’t write very well, except when my mother helps me. But now I can tell you without writing!” Then the little boy began to name the different things that he wanted, including a red fire engine. Santa listened attentively, and when the boy had finished, Santa said, “I see that you think I am very rich, and that I can give a good child anything he wants. Has no one ever told you that there is a Great Depression taking place and many people including Santa Claus are struggling with no home, no money, and no food, except what kind-hearted people give us?” The little boy looked at him with wonder and wide eyes and said, “Poor, Santa Claus. Why, I thought you were the richest man in the world! I thought that everything that comes to anybody at Christmas came from you. They always told me so.” “Yes,” said Santa. “They told you only what is true. It

the week before Christmas and his wealthy mother had brought him to the city to see the Christmas trees and the toys in the shop windows. After going to many places where there had been no toys or Christmas trees, she had brought him to this great room and told him to wait on this sofa by a door until she returned. Then the mother, dressed in a lush fur coat, hid a distance away to observe her son under a watchful eye, because she had noticed that a favorite friend of his was moments away from entering the room. It seemed to the boy that he waited a long time, and it was hard, for on their way to the big room they had passed through crowds of people and between long counters full of sleds and carts, toy cannons, ships, trucks and fire engines, and he wanted to look at them so that he could tell Santa Claus what to bring him. He was thinking what he should ask for, and wishing that his mother would come,

Two arrested for narcotics possession By Lieutenant Kevin Glenn On Dec. 6, North Haven Police were conducting speed enforcement on Washington Avenue. Officer Cormier stopped a silver Honda Civic for traveling 57 mph in a 40-mph zone. During the stop, Officer Cormier thought he saw drug paraphernalia between the two front seats. Following a search of the vehicle, officers found multiple types of prescription narcotics, emp-

ty heroin packets, and a cut straw commonly used to snort narcotics. Jesse Justin Delucia, 34, of Wallingford, Charissa Lavelle Breen, 28, who resides in Meriden were arrested and charged with Possession of Narcotics, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both are scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior court on Jan. 5, 2012. Lieutenant Kevin Glenn serves the North Haven Police Department.

Rotary learns how to “Pedal Your Dreams” Courtesy of David Marchesseault

Daniel P. Perrotto, a resident of Belmont Road in North Haven for nearly 40 years founded a charity called “Bikes for Babes” in the late 1990’s. Addressing a recent meeting of the North Haven Rotary Club, he said that his involvement in the drive started when a child in his neighborhood lost his father; so he decided to donate a bicycle to the boy to ease the grief and loss. Since that time, he has traveled extensively collecting donations which have allowed him to distribute over 1,800 new bikes to children in need through numerous charitable organizations in this part of the state. Rotary President Guy Casella pledged to pursue a donation to the cause. Perrotto said that anyone wishing to “pedal your dreams” may call (203) 239-2143.

tion’s name without the association’s knowledge. Another check, for $32,764, was issued by the insurance company in July and deposited into the same account, according to the warrant. In mid-July, the association’s collections attorney, Earle Giovanniello, told Sterling Village Condo Association President Sandra Osipow to call the president of Countryside Condominiums in East Haven. Osipow found out that Cacioli had made unauthorized withdrawals from Countryside accounts and, when confronted about it, gave Countryside two

checks, the warrant states. One check, for $15,000, was from the TD Bank account Cacioli established for Sterling Village. Several transactions, some for legitimate expenses, were made by Cacioli without the association’s knowledge or consent since he set up the account, the warrant states. The association terminated Cacioli’s contract in August and demanded that he return all records. A few days later, association members went to Cacioli’s office demanding he change the signature for the association account, to give the association control. The Sterling Village association then determined that $22,350 was missing from

the account, the warrant states. When questioned by police, Cacioli confirmed that he had removed some of the money to refurbish his new office and pay off creditors. See Charges, page 8 Citizen photo by Dave Zajak / RecordJournal

Charges Continued from page 5 “It’s sad that it happened,

but I can’t say much,” John Bauman, a board member for Sterling Village, said Thursday. “Legal action is going on right now.”

He said the association did a thorough background check on Cacioli before hiring him. The association hasn’t hired a new manager yet. The West Haven case began after Giovanniello called Savin Harbor Condo Association President Ed Connelly in mid-July to notify him that money was missing from another of Giovanniel-

lo’s clients who had used the same property manager. When Connelly tried to check the status of the association’s accounts, he discovered that none of the association board members had access, the warrant states. Connelly insisted Cacioli meet him at the bank and add him to their accounts. That’s when Connelly discovered

that about $17,000 was missing, the warrant states. Cacioli admitted taking the money, telling Connelly he was having “cash flow problems” and would repay it shortly. The board terminated Cacioli’s contract, then received the missing money a week later. Mr. Rathsack reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden. Contact: or (203) 317-2227

does come through me, but not from me. It comes from those who know me and what I do and who help me do it. Did you know that there are hundreds of little boys and girls in this city who have no stockings to keep their feet warm and no shoes to keep them dry, and they have no toys to play with and they go to bed hungry every night? And there are other cities in this country where it is the same, and I must care for all of them too. Even if I were the richest man in the world, as you thought, I could not do it alone — but I am happy in having thousands, yes, hundreds of thousands of helpers.” “Can anyone at all help?” asked the little boy. “Yes, anyone at all can help. I carry this for those who wish to help,” and Santa held up a tin box with a narrow slit in the top, and shook it until what was inside jingled. The little boy slid to the floor and put his hand deep down his pants pocket. When he drew his hand out, there was a bright new half-dollar in it — the half dollar that his aunt had given him that morning to spend all for himself. Without once looking at it, he pushed it quickly into

their way into my work,” the author answered. Queried about authors she read as a child, Prasad responded, “I read a lot of Stephen King, and probably too early, as early as when I was 10.” “A lot of what I read when I was young got me into writing,” she responded. “I got my first literary agent when I was 16, so you’re not too young to be thinking about that and the future.” Book-club founder and Memorial Library children’s librarian Pat LaTerza, who knew Prasad as a young library patron and had invited her to the gathering, asked about research behind On Borrowed Wings, which delves into a Branford quarry and Yale architecture. “I remember walking

around the Yale campus and thinking about how the architecture there is very diverse,” said Prasad, a Yale

graduate. “There’s a lot of Connecticut stone there

her literary ambitions as a youth. “I feel like the library system here gave me a lot of support when I was growing up, so it was a natural Prasad thing for me to come back for this,” she said. On Dec. 13, over a dozen members of the book group convened in the library community room to consider Prasad’s 2008 novel, On Borrowed Wings. The text follows a stonecutter’s daughter who disguises herself as a boy to attend Yale University in the 1930s, when Connecticut’s

Ivy League college admitted only men. Angelyn Cannon, 16, said she could relate to the book’s young female characters, who struggled for self-insight during America’s early 20th century, when women did not have equal rights with men. “I think that sort of thing happens to a lot of people, where they are trying to find out who they really are,” Cannon said. Seated in a circle, mothers and daughters held an open dialogue about the novel’s major themes, characters and scenes. Then readers’ questions turned to Prasad. Meeting-moderator Colette Kroop, 15, asked about Prasad’s influences. “Gender, family, sexuality and race are themes that, no matter what I do, always work

That’s pretty typical in this industry,” she said. “A lot of authors have a lot of rejections and barriers they have to overcome. But you just have to keep trying. Motivation and stamina are at least as important as talent.” “Writing the book is only one-quarter of the battle,” she continued. “After writing the book, you have to sell it.

Santa Continued from page 8 the slit in the tin box that Santa held out. While the little boy was carrying out his good deed, his mother had come back into plain sight and toward her son. Her heart was filled with joy at seeing her son giving to Santa. “I thank you, kind sir,” said Santa. “You have helped me to make a happy Christmas for a little boy or girl by getting him or her some new stockings or a new toy. When Christmas comes, I will remember you and your kindness.” And when Christmas did come, the little boy found a red fire engine under the Christmas tree. As he held his special gift, he thought to

himself that there must have been enough money in the tin box to buy shoes, stockings, and toys for those who needed them. He also hoped that there was something left over for Santa. It is in giving that we receive, and what better way to show someone that we care than with a good gesture, a compliment, or a gift from the heart that fits all sizes, doesn’t have to be returned, never goes out of style, and is deeply appreciated not only on Christmas, but also on each day of the year.

By State Rep. Dave Yaccarino As this year comes to a close and we are all a l i t t l e rushed d u r i n g this busy holiday season, I’ve been for tunate Yaccarino to find a few minutes to reflect back upon what’s been done for North Haven in the legislature and where we as a state go from here. It’s been an amazing year as your elected State Representative and I appreciate each and every moment of my time serving as your voice at the Capitol. I am truly blessed to be able to represent the people of North Haven — the town where I was born and raised and where, thankfully, I learned the important life lessons that make me who I am today. As your Representative I’ve been able to witness firsthand the power a community can exert when determined to make a difference. Despite the damages of Hurricane Irene we saw people come together and help each other by provid-

ing food, shelter, a hot shower or cleanup after the fact. I was able to bring together about a dozen highschool student volunteers to clean up the yards of local senior citizens and I was able to bring representatives from the state’s CHOICES program to the senior center to help them navigate state programs and Medicare issues. One of my major priorities in Hartford is to be a strong advocate for the seniors of our town. In Hartford I am proud to be part of the dialogue in changing how we manage education. I’ve met with the Commissioner of Education, Stefan Pryor, and will be bringing him to North Haven during February’s office hours to advocate changes in how we fund education. I’m also proud to have contributed to the passage of the jobs bill. I’ve personally met with more than two dozen local businesses to gain a better understanding of their needs and how state legislation affects their business and employees. Bringing our community’s needs to the deliberations in Hartford See Happy, next page

Haven Citizen describes a man being arrested in town for purse snatching. The article reads, “Angileri slowly drove the stolen vehicle by the victim while reaching into her grocery cart. He grabbed the victim’s purse and drove away.” I agree that stealing a woman’s purse is a heinous crime that should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; however, I think it is outrageous that your paper would publish what I believe to be a prejudicial statement.

So they frequent indoor tanning salons in an effort to keep what they believe is a “healthy glow.” You can read stories about young adults who have died from skin cancer. You can also read stories about cancer survivors. Some reasons people give for continued use of tanning salons are: they believe that they look better with a tan, it will make them more popular or it helps their acne. Many of these people do not think that indoor tanning is harmful, because they are not out in the actual sun. However, research has grown more conclusive that indoor tanning is just as dangerous, or possibly

even more dangerous, than sunbathing. In fact, there is so much evidence that 30 states have limited use by adolescents, requiring parental permission or have even prohibited use by adolescents. Connecticut is one of those states. Written permission to tan is required from a parent or guardian if the child is under 16 years old. If a tanning salon operator fails to get this permission, a fine can be imposed on the operator. Of course, the Indoor Tanning Association does not agree. Their arguments are based on the fact that people who develop See Tanning, page 17

State Column

Republicans scheme brilliantly for new map By Chris Powell Why were Democratic and Republican leaders in the General Assembly able to compromise on a redistricting plan for the state legislature but not on a plan for Connecticut’s five congressional districts? It’s because redistricting, when done by politicians rather than by an impartial outside authority, is largely a matter of protecting incumbents, and Connecticut’s Republicans have no members of Congress to protect, Democrats holding all five of the state’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

So the Republicans have little to lose from an impasse on the bipartisan Reapportionment Committee that transfers the congressional redistricting power to the state Supreme Court. The congressional districting scheme undertaken by the committee’s Republicans, led by House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero, R-Norwalk, is brilliant. The Republicans have proposed a map that looks far more sensible than the current one, compacting the districts and preserving community of interest. Gone is the 1st See Republicans, page 23

time for giving and we will do our best to see that no child will go without a toy.” When making food and toy selections, recipients will be accompanied by community services staff and each child can select two items. To those interested in donating toys and/or food, the department welcomes any donations of new and unwrapped toys and donations of non-perishable food items. “It is sad to report but statistics show that one out of seven families in this country go hungry and with these hard times, there are more families struggling to put food on their tables,” said Dan Riccio, welfare administrator for community services. “No one, especially chil-

Carla and I and the entire staff appreciate whatever the community can do to lend a helping hand.” Dan added that there are many families in town who are struggling and they are very grateful for whatever assistance they can receive. “For me, it is an eye opener to see what is going on in our own community as well in the surrounding areas.

must count our blessings and appreciate what we have,” said Dan. “And we must show compassion to the less fortunate not only at Christmastime but throughout the year.” Both Carla and Dan enjoy their work and helping the residents of North Haven. Their department sponsors the toy bank year-round for birthdays, the food bank, the energy assistance program that runs from October until March and counseling services. “When we see a need throughout the year, we get involved and lend a helping hand. Last year we did a drive for toiletries and a drive for school supplies,” said Carla. “It is always good to see the smiles on recipients’ faces,

Also last year we had a recipient of the food bank who was so thankful that she promised us that if her situation improved she would help us, and this year she kept her promise.” As symbolized by the food and toy drives, it is important to pay it forward and help one’s neighbors. When people work together for a common good, much gets accomplished while creating an atmosphere of hope. It also sends a clear message that people care, and what better way to express that kindness than with a gift from the heart. “I love extending my serv-

ices to the public and reaching out to those in need, especially in my own community,” said Dan. “I also do work with our veterans who need help and must never be forgotten for their sacrifices and service to our country. North Haven is a great town with wonderful and caring individuals.” Carla shares her co-worker’s feelings and added, “We will always do our best to help everyone. It is our job and our pleasure to do what we do. We wish everyone good health, employment, financial stability, peace and happiness this Christmas, holiday season and in the New Year.” To sign up, make a donation or receive further information, please contact community services at 203-2395321, extension 780.

Blood drives planned in area

The American Red Cross urges all those who are eligible to donate blood to give the perfect gift that money can’t buy this holiday season. By donating blood you can give someone the perfect gift - more time with his or her family and friends. Donating blood takes around an hour, but can give someone else hours, days, even years of time. Patients need blood every day, including during the busy holiday season when blood donations often decrease. Every two seconds, someone in this country needs blood. On average, 44,000 blood donations are needed each day to help trauma victims, surgical patients, burn victims, patients with blood disorders and many others. Potential blood donors must be 17 years of age, meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and be in generally good health. People should bring their Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when they come to donate. Eligible donors can give whole blood every 56 days. Please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800733-2767) or visit to find a blood drive at a convenient location near you and to make an appointment. As a special thank you, all those who come in to donate

NHMS November Students of Month


Young writers

Letters from a Fresh Fish By Jake Barra

Courtesy of Christine Schwartz

The following students have been named North Haven Middle School Students of the Month for November 2011. Standing (left to right): Francesca Campanelli, Genevieve Richardson, Randy Nguyen, Brianna Cipollini, Luke Wilcox, and Molly Duffy. Seated (left to right): Rebecca Funaro, Andrea De La Rosa, Mehak Sharma, Niti Bidja and Marianna De La Rosa.

Long ago, in this great, proud nation, there was a devastating American Civil War: Confederate vs. Union, South vs. North, slavery vs. freedom, brother vs. brother. 620,000 people died in this critical event. A letter was preserved through the ages after the Civil War ended. The following letter was written by a soldier named James Berua to his family shortly after he enlisted in the Union Army. James enlisted in the army to avenge his father’s death and because he hated the very idea of slavery.

Dear Mother, As a fresh fish marching into battle, I had that odd mixed feeling of excitement and fear. Now that feeling is as dead as the men who died in the battle of Fredricksburg. The Johnny Rebs beat us to a pulp. In that battle I experienced the terror of seeing the elephant. Although I have only been a soldier for two weeks, the sight of my brothers falling on the blood-stained ground is as painful as taking a bullet to my heart. I should have listened to my dear sister Sophia when she begged me not to enlist in the Union Army. However, I know that I must do anything to preserve the Union. My motiva-

tion to remain a blue jacket is not only to avenge father’s death but to end the war and slavery. Your affectionate son, James Jake Barra is a fifthgrader at Ridge Road Elementary School, where he writes creatively in librarian Lydia Westerberg’s Young Aspiring Writers group. Jake is also in Mrs. Fletcher’s class, where he has studied the Civil War. Barra

Republicans Continued from page 15

Congressional District’s weird claw west from Hartford, grabbing Torrington and Bristol, and gone is the 5th District’s eastward plunger capturing New Britain and several of Hartford’s wealthy suburbs. In the Republican map the 1st District narrows and gets a north-south alignment along the Connecticut River from Enfield to Middletown. But geographical compactness and community of interest just happen to coincide with what is plainly the Republican plan’s real objective — political advantage. For the plan would move over-

cal advantage, so the Republicans are seeking cover behind a districting objective Democrats themselves have sometimes advocated in recent years. That is, the Republicans note, their plan would come close to making the Hartford and New HavenBridgeport districts “majority minority” districts, districts in which the influence of ethnic minorities is increased so much that they are more likely to elect or at least nominate members of their groups. Since ethnic minority voters are disproportionately Democratic, Republicans have come to like constructing “majority minority” districts even more than Democrats do, since it puts a politically correct sheen on the wasteful concentration of minority group voters and minimizes the districts in which they have much influence. Holding all five Connecticut districts, Democratic

leaders are happy with the current map, despite its trespasses against compactness and community of interest. They note that only small adjustments are needed with the current districts to keep their populations equal. What will happen if congressional redistricting goes to the state Supreme Court? Probably a better map, aimed more at the public-interest objectives of redistricting, less at the political ones.

whelmingly Democratic Bridgeport out of the 4th District in southwestern Connecticut and into the 3rd District with New Haven, already an overwhelmingly Democratic district. The effect of the Republican plan would be to concentrate Democrats even more in the 1st and 3rd districts, thereby wasting thousands of Democratic votes, while making the 4th District solidly Republican and the 2nd and 5th districts very competitive, maybe even Republican-leaners. Indeed, under the Republican plan, in an election in which national trends were neutral, Connecticut could end up with three Republicans and only two Democrats in the U.S. House even though far more votes had been cast for the Democratic candidates. Such districting ordinarily would look like gerrymandering, districting for politi-

Community of interest, compactness, and political competitiveness provide ample reason to get rid of the 1st District’s westward claw and the 5th’s eastward plunger. Those things are only remnants of the last redistricting’s accommodation of two U.S. representatives, Democrat James Maloney of Danbury and Republican Nancy Johnson of New Britain,

evolution in recent years has altered the book industry, too. “The rules change almost daily now because everything is online,” Prasad said. “I feel bad for literary agents, because they are the middle men and they might be squeezed out soon.” “You really have to have a very, very polished work to get considered for publication,” she added. “And you have to already have an audience in mind, and know who your competitors are, and why your work would be distinct and what its niche market is.” Emma Griffiths, 14, appreciated Prasad’s attendance. “I thought it was really cool,” she said. “I liked asking the writer what was on her mind when she was writing this.” Cannon agreed. “I really liked it,” she said. “I’m an as-

piring writer, and to be able to talk to an author I’ve read, I think it’s going to be really helpful for me.” Prasad, who brought her own mother and grandmother to the meeting, enjoyed discussing On Borrowed Wings with mothers and daughters in a setting where she had spent much time as a North Haven youth. “This library was a safe haven for me, a place for me to go to read and think and explore,” she said. “I always associate libraries with freedom and freedom of ideas.” “I thought tonight was nice and refreshing,” she added. “I love to hear the perspectives of young people. Often it gives me hope for the future when I listen to youths. They’re really thinking and forming ideas of their own.”

Green Acres Family Fun Courtesy of Lisa Leamon

Green Acres Elementary School and PTA kicked off the season with a “Thanks for Giving” Family Fun Night. Parents and kids had a great time playing all kinds of carnival games and winning prizes. Families were asked to bring a food donation as admission. The night brought in 150 pounds of non-perishable food donated to the North Haven Food Pantry. Green Acres students also raised $1,490 for UNICEF with a Jack-O-Lantern decoration contest, where each class decorated a pumpkin and votes were made with coins deposited in the familiar orange boxes. Continuing our season of giving, the Green Acres community with the Rotary Club raised an additional $330 for the North Haven Food Bank with Green Acres Spirit Day donations. Go Soaring Hawks!

Republicans Continued from page 23 who had to be put in the same district when Connecticut was reduced from six districts to five. Johnson defeated Maloney in 2002 and then was defeated by Democrat Chris Murphy in 2006. Towns could be exchanged between the 1st and 5th districts without much affecting political advantage. But community of interest and compactness do not require moving Bridgeport out

of the southwestern district and into the New Haven district, even as such a switch would destroy political competitiveness in both districts. As desirable as political competitiveness is, it’s not worth more than majority rule, and if Connecticut really wants to remain a one-party state, forever in decline, existing mainly to be looted by special interests, that’s its right.
