Building department employee terminated

Ci

By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Lighting the way

Last week North Haven’s building department shed another employee. Town Hall ended the contract of building department consultant Steve Buda on Dec. 15, after an investigation into a 204 Rimmon Road property found an in-law apartment being built illegally, a violation Buda did not report in his prior site inspection. “Right now, it’s a zero tolerance policy in the building department,” said First Selectman Michael Freda.

“Whether this was an error in judgment or an innocent mistake, to me, it’s completely irrelevant. Mistakes cannot and will not be tolerated.” At a Nov. 10 Board of Selectmen’s meeting, Freda announced a procedural overhaul of North Haven’s building department. Earlier in 2010, the State Attorney’s Office examined the department following concerns of incorrect charging and collection of building permit and application fees. Investigators found no criminal activity, but a forensic audit determined

that over $60,000 may have been lost over a seven-year period, and Freda placed former building official Dave Maiden on administrative leave. Maiden never returned to his position. “The bottom line is an absolute zero tolerance,” Freda said Dec. 17. “That is why we terminated the contract.” Freda said he made the final decision, and Public Works Director Lynn Sadosky dismissed Buda at 4 p.m., Dec. 15. “He was very disappointSee Buda, page 11

At BOF meeting, insurance discussed By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

At the Dec. 15 Board of Finance (BOF) meeting, First Selectman and BOF member Michael Freda said North Haven is already working toward a 2011-12 health insurance contract for town personnel.

Last year, North Haven accepted Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield’s proposal, which represented a 28 percent increase over the previous year. Driving up the cost were health insurance inflation nationwide and the town’s unusually large 2009 See BOF, page 19

North Haven pair in Liver Life Walk The American Liver Foundation Connecticut Division has piloted a destination marathon program for the Foundation nationwide. Twelve runners from Connecticut have trained for and will be running the Walt Disney World full and half marathon on Jan. 8 to 9, 2011, in Orlando, Fla. A North Haven resident, Mike Parillo, and his partner, Tricia Cushing were the liver champions of the team, sharing their story of battling liver cancer as motivation and inspiration for the runners. Mike and Tricia joined the division two years ago by getting involved in the Liver Walk, and this past year they raised over $10,000 for the event. Mike and Tricia will join the Connecticut Division staff and the 12 runners and their families in Orlando this January, raising

Library display inspires readers for the holidays By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

Memorial Library’s 2010 holiday book display offers an array of seasonal readings for North Haven patrons of all cultures and backgrounds.

formation about decorating, cooking, baking, and history of the three holidays.” Like in the past several months, the display case, with its varied themes, has been effective in getting people’s attention — many books have been checked-out on a regular basis. Also, the staff including Haag has received positive feedback and comments from library patrons. “I think this display case with its monthly themes is a great idea. I come to the library often and each month I browse through the collection that is well organized and neatly displayed, and I always end up checking out a book or two,” said Louise Bickford, a North Haven resident and library patron. “I love the themes and this month I took out a book on making holiday ornaments and gingerbread houses that I will share with my grandchildren.” Next to the display case, carefully placed in the corSee Library, page 11

During the month of December North Haven Library’s visitors have opportunity to become familiar and reacquainted with a collection of nonfiction books written about Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa. The collection is neatly displayed in the library display case located on the main floor across from the circulation desk. “Last year, the Friends of the North Haven Library donated this beautiful display case, which is easy to see and makes for a perfect way to advertise a variety of fiction and nonfiction books,” stated Nancy Haag, reference librarian and North Haven resident. “Every month I select a particular theme, choose books from that theme found on the online catalogue, and display them in the case. We encourage people to checkout the books and as they go we replace them.” Haag further explained that the theme begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month. She selects books by subject and spends an hour or more researching, gathering background information and setting up the display. In previous months some themes included Halloween for October, Local Connecticut Authors for November, The Classics for July, and Popular Teen Reading for August. “The books displayed are nonfiction, and a mixture focusing on holiday decorating and ornament making, cooking and baking, folklore and history of the holidays written by a variety of authors and celebrities including Diane Smith, Paula Deen, Martha Stewart, Fiona Eaton, Charles Schulz, Robert Sullivan, Meera Lester, Elaine Isaacson, Mimi Sheraton, John Hadamuscin, Mae Shafter Rockland, Dorothy Winbush Riley, and many more,” Haag said. “Each book is a wonderful resource guide that gives readers ideas, suggestions, and in-

Three winners in fire safety poster contest By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Local fire and town officials recently recognized three elementary school children as the 2010 winners of North Haven’s annual fire safety poster contest. Begun during the first week of school, the annual competition invites all fourth and fifth graders town-wide to submit hand-drawn posters which depict fire safety tips. Fourth and fifth grade champions, a Chief ’s award recipient and their families converged Dec. 20 at Town Hall for a ceremony with North Haven officials. Municipalities statewide participate, and The Connecticut Fair Plan is sponsor. “It doesn’t get any better for us than to use our youngest citizens to spread the fire safety message,” said North Haven Fire Chief Vincent Landisio. “When the students go home and meet with their parents, the fire prevention poster will come up,” he added. “This allows the parents to remember to be safe. This allows us, as a community and fire department, to stay safe. And obviously we enjoy rewarding the talented youths.” Taking the fourth grade prize was Caitlin Ranciato, whose picture portrayed a female firefighter dousing flames escaping from a brick building. Ranciato’s character utilized a fire hose,

Clockwise, beginning atop, winners of North Haven’s annual fire safety poster contest met last week at town hall with Fire Chief Vincent Landisio and First Selectman Michael Freda to receive awards: Caitlin Ranciato, Roma Moore and Kim Ly.

A tion. In one box, above a candle, Moore wrote “Don’t forget to blow me out.” Another square instructed, “Do not play with matches.” Another contained a pot of boiling water atop a stove, for which Moore penned, “Don’t forget to turn me off.” Finally, above logs aflame within a hearth, she wrote, “Do not leave the fireplace unattended.” “There are a lot of candles in my house. That’s how I got the idea for the candles,” Moore said, explaining the muse behind one quadrant. “I did my poster in the kitchen, so I saw the stove

through which stretched written safety tips — “preventing fires is easy and fun, checking fire alarms monthly, no smoking.” “This is a great poster,” said Landisio. Ranciato sought to educate her poster’s viewers. “It represents the fire department and helps everybody that sees it get a clue about what to do with checking the fire detector,” she said. Roma Moore was the fifth grade winner. “This is very deserving of winning the fifth grade contest,” Landisio said of her work, which was split into four boxes, each with a safety sugges-

and I wanted to draw the stove.” Every year Landisio selects his personal favorite poster for a special Chief ’s award. In 2010 he picked Kim Ly’s entry. “This was certainly my favorite poster of all the posters left over after we

chose the other awards,” p Landisio said. In crayon Ly drew a Dalmatian dog beneath a multicolored umbrella. Above her canine she wrote “fire prevention, everyone everyday.” See Fire, next page

A State Police Trooper parked behind an accident on Route 15 north near exit 63 to shield the scene with his vehicle was struck by a woman entering the highway Friday afternoon, police say. The driver, an elderly woman from West Hartford, kept going after striking the police cruiser and the car in front of the cruiser. The trooper was able to pull the

woman over before exit 64 in Wallingford, according to a police statement. The woman told police she knew she struck something with her passenger side mirror but continued on anyway, police say. The vehicle was towed from the scene and her driver’s license is being forwarded to the DMV for evaluation. She was charged with evading responsibility and failure to drive in the established lane, police say. No one was injured in the accident.

A bird flying beside the dog recommended in a word bubble that people remember to blow out candles. “It was colorful,” Landisio added of Ly’s entrance. “It depicted the right message.” Motivation for Ly came from a poster successful in 2009. “Last year a winner was an octopus with an umbrella,” she said. “I got the idea to use something similar, but replace the octopus with a Dalmatian dog, because Dalmatians are fire dogs.” Each girl received a $100 Toys ‘R’ Us gift certificate. Ranciato and Moore’s posters

will be sent to Connecticut’s statewide poster competition. North Haven’s Fire Union served as key sponsors, and rewarded Ranciato and Moore with $100 saving bonds. “These are two fine posters,” said Jeffrey Obier, union president. “They really get the right message across. I wish both girls good luck in the state contest.” First Selectman Michael Freda congratulated every girl as they received prizes. “I mentioned to each girl that I was tremendously impressed,” he said. “Each one of these posters, in one way, shows what our fire department is all about.”

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 15 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

At Kensington Hall, Judith Fairchild had arrived to pay Mrs. Kensington a visit. Unfortunately, Judith’s visit was not a social call. Lydia Johnson announced Judith’s arrival and showed her to the drawing room, where Mrs. Kensington was enjoying a cup of tea. Lydia pretended to leave, but she remained behind and eavesdropped from out in the hall. Judith stood tall while staring at her friend with a scornful expression. “My friend Judith, it is so lovely to see you. Please sit and join me in a cup of tea,” said Mrs. Kensington. “I certainly will not take tea with a traitor. How dare you introduce that wretched girl Honoria Noble to my son Ethan?” asked Judith angrily. “From what I have learned about her, she is from inferior birth and has a disdainful reputation for flirting with other men. I was told by reliable sources that you had befriended her, and it was here at your home that Ethan, while on his way to see you, found her outside lying on the ground. Are you suffering from insanity?”

“Judith, I resent you questioning who I associate with as well as my sanity. I can assure you that my mind is fully intact, and as for Honoria, she is a lovely young lady in need of companionship and guidance. Do not believe malicious rumors.” “Is it a rumor that she is a descendant of a Salem witch?” Mrs. Kensington stared at her agitated friend and sipped her tea. Then she laughed, causing Judith great vexation. Judith accused Mrs. Kensington of mocking her and wishing for her to lose her son to a commoner with an unscrupulous past. After briefly composing herself, Judith begged Mrs. Kensington to speak to Ethan and suggest he end his relationship with Honoria. “I shall do no such thing. Ethan is old enough to make his own decisions. I will certainly not stand in the way of his happiness. Be grateful that he has found someone who loves him. My poor daughter entered into a loveless marriage, and she died tragically without her husband by her side.” “I do not need to hear about your daughter’s sad story. Since you will not assist me, I have nothing more

to say to you. Our friendship is no more. Good day to you, Phoebe.” As Judith Fairchild abruptly left the room, a sly Simon Blackwell entered through the terrace doors.

He had a smirk on his face from the conversation he had just overheard from outside on the terrace. He mocked Mrs. Kensington for making enemies with Mrs. Fairchild and he admitted to her that

Community Suppers

St. John’s Episcopal Church wishes to announce there will be no Community Supper on Friday, Dec. 31. The regular weekly schedule will resume on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011. St. John’s sponsors the meals most every Friday from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Great Hall, rain or shine for members of the community who need help making ends meet and for those who want some companionship along with a nutritious supper. The suggested donation is $1 per meal, with a family cap of $5. No one is turned away in the event they are unable to make a donation. The menu includes items such as chicken noodle soup or vegetable minestrone; meat loaf or egg salad sandwiches; seasonal fresh fruit and fresh baked desserts. St. John’s Church is located at 3 Trumbull Place, at the top of the Green in North Haven, where our doors are open for prayer and peace. For details on this or other parish programs please call the church office at 203-2390156. St. John’s Episcopal Church’s Community Sup-

Children’s Christmas Eve at St. John’s Would you like your children to experience the pleasure of an old fashioned Christmas pageant without all the rehearsals and hassle? Then bring them to St. John’s Episcopal Church, 3 Trumbull Place at 3 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 24, dressed as an angel, shepherd or animal. All children present will be incorporated into a retelling of the Christmas story, complete with the Star and the Three Kings. Simple, familiar Christmas carols will be sung. “It looks a lot like a pageant,” says the Rev. Matt Lincoln, rector of St. John’s, “but it is not a performance by children for an audience. It is really a way for children to worship God by experiencing something like going to Bethlehem to see the Christ Child. That is why we invite them to participate without rehearsals. At the same time, grandparents get to see their grandchildren looking angelic!”

Letters to the Editor

Chemical time bomb

To the editor: North Haven now has a consultant for the Tire Pond land fill fiasco. We have only one request of this consultant, that his firm does a complete scientific chemical analysis of the Tire Pond. The DEP has lied to us for years about Upjohn not contaminating their site. They left town and we are left with the most contaminated site in town. They got away with that, with the help of our commissions and politicians and now they want to create another chemical time bomb. We do not want another surprise like Upjohn with the Tire Pond, 20 or so years down the pike. It is just common sense that this property be tested, especially after the

DEP has already dumped over 1,200,000 tons of industrial waste in it from all over the country. Ironically, once the DEP took over, they stopped the testing for the 118 chemicals that they had required the absentee owner Joseph Farricielli to do, on a regular basis. So no one knows what the composition of the Tire Pond land fill is. In this day and age, this is unbelievable and archaic that anyone would take toxic industrial waste from one town and dump it on the people in another town. Let’s hope the deals and the rubber stamping are a thing of the past and the Planning and Zoning Commission, the consultant and the politicians, do right by the people of this town.

Traditions By V. Deborah Culligan As I entered into the holiday season this year, I actually considered purchasing an artificial pre-lighted tree (that rotated!) The appeal of a “pineneedle-less” holiday appealed to me. After all, the children are older and it would just mean so much less mess. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when my 20 year old son vehemently protested, “For my whole life, I have had a real tree. Now you are going to change it.” I found this puzzling, coming from one who hasn’t helped decorate the tree for years. But it got me to thinking . . . it really wasn’t about the type of tree. It was about tradition. Traditions can be defined as the passing down of beliefs, customs or practices

from generation to generation. They are often associated with holidays, but can also be part of birthdays, family vacations, special events like weddings, or religious customs. Many institutions also have traditions, such as the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner prior to the start of a sporting event. Research shows us that traditions are important. One study grouped tradition and its importance into four areas: predictability, identity, connection and the enactment of values. When you can count on something to be there or be part of routine, it is predictable. For example, young children may know that there is a story before bedtime. This is predictable and helps them to settle down and prepare for sleep. Predictability provides for stability, giving us an anchor to the present and often a link to the past. Predictability is comforting and provides for stability. Traditions are something you can count on, even in bad times. Traditions give family members a family identity. They help to make families

unique and help to define who we are. They pass down a family legacy. They contribute to a person’s sense of belonging and strengthen the family unit. Even when loved members have passed or a family has broken up, traditions can help keep the good memories alive. Traditions offer families an opportunity to connect. This is important in the fastpaced times in which we live in. Spending time together can create memories that will travel with family members no matter where they go. Precious moments can be spent together that might not occur if there wasn’t a “tradition” attached. Last, traditions offer families the chance to teach about values. What adults value and believe can be passed down from generation to generation providing for some of life’s most important lessons. Traditions can be teaching times imparting culture and character in memorable events. Not all persons had an upbringing that was filled with tradition. I have often heard

The club also received awards for publication: second place for its newsletters (medium club), Publicity Press Book; third place (small club), Yearbook Honorable mention, class IV (45 to 69) members; and a Certification of Commendation and Appreciation (New England region). This was for the National President’s Project Golden Days.

young people who visit my home talk about this. But it is never too late to start a tradition. Begin now and build over the years. It can be as simple as reading a particular story on a particular holiday. Or it can be helping at a soup kitchen on another holiday. While most people enjoy this holiday time of the year, it can be painful for some. Starting a tradition may help to lessen that pain, by creating a new family identity and acting on your values. Traditions may be warm, fuzzy, meaningful or silly. After all, fruitcake is a Christ-

mas tradition and most people don’t even like it. As Tevye says in Fiddler on the Roof, “traditions are sign posts that keep a family going in difficult times.” During this holiday season, bring out your old traditions and create some new ones. Be sure to insist that your teenagers participate, even if you get the sour attitude and long faces. When the years have passed, you will be surprised at how many of those traditions appear when they start their own families.

Before looking into 204 Rimmon Road, Town Hall received anonymous complaints that a town vehicle had spent an extended amount of time outside the building, according to Sadosky. “It was suggested that we should check into who was driving the vehicle and check to see if the correct permits were being issued,” she said. Accordingly, building official Elio Floriano and town engineer Jonathan Bodwell contacted the 204 Rimmon Road homeowner and gained access to the single-family

We will charge him for those permits.” Floriano and Bodwell reported 204 Rimmon Road’s permit inconsistencies to Sadosky, who also toured the residence and examined its paperwork. “Based on those discrepancies, I felt it was

prudent and in the best interest of town to terminate the contract of the individual,” she said. From five interviewed candidates, Sadosky had hired Buda in June. “He has an accredited assistant building official license,” she said. “I found him, and the others, on the website of the state’s Department of Public Safety, where he had been licensed.” Buda’s salary was $50 per hour, with no benefits.

On the carriage ride home, she began to devise a plan to deal with her son’s undesirable companion and her disloyal friend Mrs. Kensington. At Singleton Lodge, I was awakened by a knock at my door. I rose from my bed and went to open the door. It was Caroline informing me that the noon day meal was being served in the dining room, and Constance and Alexander requested my presence. I told Caroline to tell them I would join them momentarily. I washed my face and looked in the mirror to fix my hair. Suddenly, I saw the

Then, without warning, he disappeared from my sight by quickly leaving the room.

Quinnipiac Valley Health District, the local health department for Bethany, Hamden, North Haven and Woodbridge, announces that it has a limited supply of free radon testing kits available for district residents. Radon is a natural element that results from the decay of uranium. It can enter the home through cracks, crevices and holes in the foundation or it can dissolve in underground water sources such as wells. Any home can have radon, whether it is old or new. Testing is the only way to identify it. Most homes can be fixed for a reasonable cost. Long term exposure to radon can increase the risk of lung cancer, particularly in smokers. District residents only can call QVHD, (203) 248-4528, to reserve your kit. Kits must be picked up at the district office.

Friday, December 24, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen calculation. So it’s really good news right now. Our claims are going down, and it gives us more negotiating leverage, which will save the town a considerable amount of money.” Ovation and GBAC agents will attend January’s BOF meeting to present publicly where North Haven is with Anthem. Kohlhepp said his previous meeting with Ovation and GBAC went well, and covered topics beyond Anthem’s two percent quote. “I appreciated the expertise of agents from both companies that were there,” Kohlhepp said. “I thought it was a good meeting. We look forward to further discussion.” “We looked at the topic of self-coverage, which we discussed as a board last year,” he added. “That’s an initiative we’re taking a look at as well. The other thing we talked about was continuing to monitor the degrees of cost containment that are in the plan design, particularly in terms of wellness and some of those other kinds of things. We believe that there may be some savings if we can continue to increase the health of the employees, and therefore drive down the numbers that way, which is the most positive way.” Freda suggested having health insurance costs as separate, aggregate line items for both town and education sides. “It would be good for the taxpayers to see what the line items would be aggregately,” he said. Other Business Starting next year, BOF meetings may take place in a new location, as Town Hall’s second-floor conference room could prevent some from attendance. “Either coming

BOF Continued from page 1 claims history, according to Anthem representatives. In 2010, Anthem’s initial quote represented a two percent increase. To prepare for contract negotiations, Freda, Finance Director Ed Swinkowski and BOF members Michael Hallahan and William Kohlhepp met several weeks ago with North Haven’s health insurance agents from Ovation Health and Life Services, Inc. and Group Benefit Administrators Connecticut, Inc. (GBAC). “The way this will work is we will take the first quote, and we will be reconvening our committee to review the next steps with both Ovation and GBAC,” Freda said. Reducing Anthem’s two percent proposal is a committee goal. “In talking with GBAC, who is working with us with Anthem, they believe this could come in at less than two percent,” Freda said. “[GBAC] would like to have a couple more discussions with Anthem before we reconvene our meeting. And we’re hoping they can get this under two.” “And then, at our meeting, we’ve mapped out a game plan of what we’re going to do from a bid process starting in January,” he added. North Haven’s recent claims history could represent a bargaining advantage. “Our claims history has gone down significantly. We, on average, versus last year, probably are about $275,000 less a month, roughly,” Freda said. “We’re hoping to have the December number drop off, which is probably factored into this two percent

January or February, we should be able to move regular Board of Finance meetings to the Rec Center,” said BOF chairman Richard Monico. During public comment, resident Gary Amato recommended funding a police presence at Board of Education meetings, as officers already attend finance and se-

lectman board meetings. “You do get some very disgruntled parents up there,” he said, “I think it would be safer. It’s a small room.” Freda said he would discuss the idea with BOE representatives. As Amato has long suggested shifting BOF meetings to alternative venues,

he praised board members for their recreational center considerations. “I would like to thank Mr. Freda, Mr. Monico, and the people for moving the meetings,” he said, “and God bless you, because I can’t make these stairs.” “I mean it from the bottom of my heart, thank you,” he added.

They told me a man in his fifties, very well dressed, had dropped it off to them. With the holidays coming, a lot of people are struggling with money and, with this happening, it leads me to believe there are good people out there. And, to the man who dropped my purse off, whoever you are, I want to thank you for your kindness and honesty and may God bless you! Merry Christmas! Natasha
